How This Works
  • Please contact me by email (rachel_ordway@yahoo.com)
  • From now on, commissions are only going to be available on a limited basis.  Please check above if I'm available for the type of commission you want.
    • "Closed" = I'm not currently available, please don't ask me.
    • "Open" = I'm currently available, but I will only be accepting a few requests at a time and it's first-come, first served.
    • "Ask Me" = It depends on my schedule.  Email me the project details and/or deadline and I'll let you know if I can do it.
  • When my status changes, I'll post about it on all of my social media.  See my "About" page for links to all my current social media pages.

What I Will And Won’t Draw
  • No adults-only material (explicit nudity, overtly sexual content, graphic violence, or drug use).
  • Implied/mildly sexual content and minor/cartoony violence are generally okay; feel free to ask me if you're not sure.
  • Animal characters—realistic-ish and anthropomorphic—and robot characters are fine.

Pricing And Payment
  • Payment is up front.  Either the full amount up front, or half up front and the rest when it’s finished.
  • I accept Paypal, credit card, or mailed checks/money orders.
  • The prices below refer to pieces created for personal use/free distribution, including samples to be used in project pitches.  For work that's intended to be published and sold, whether in print or as a digital file, email me at rachel_ordway@yahoo.com to discuss the price based on the project.
  • Also, I reserve the right to charge extra based on the complexity of the project.  This is at my sole discretion and on a project-by-project basis; feel free to ask me if you're not sure.


Comic Commissions

Sample images can be found in my Comics gallery.

Prices include lettering.  Inquire about logos. For just lettering (on someone else's art): $15/page, or less if the art already contains word balloons and/or sound effects.

Samples of my lettering on others' art can be found in my Lettering gallery.

Can be solid grays (sample 1) or screentones (sample 2).

  • Also, I reserve the right to charge extra based on the complexity of the project.  This is at my sole discretion and on a project-by-project basis; feel free to ask me if you're not sure.
