You can contact me about commissions at these places…
You can reach me here on deviantART of course. Please speak to me through Private Messages if you want a commission.
RetayaCommissions@gmail.com ::: Please put “Commission” as the subject. You may also put “Question” as the subject if you’re wanting to ask questions.
All prices are negotiable. The prices are based on the time in which I would need to spend making your commission.
Haggling is acceptable. I can be convinced to lower my prices if your commission is unusually simple to make. But likewise, if your commission is unusually difficult to make, I may ask for a higher price.
Prices will be decided before I begin work on your commission. Once prices are mutually agreed upon, they will not change.
After your commission is done, I will send you a preview-thumbnail of the finished picture. Once payment is accepted, I will send the full picture to you. If I am not paid as agreed upon, I will continue to hold your commission hostage.
I am currently only accepting payment through PayPal.
Once you have bought a commission, you may post it wherever you like and do whatever you want with it. But do not claim that you made it yourself. And do not sell my art to other people. Seriously. That’s a really messed up thing to do.
By default, all commissions come with a blank white background unless otherwise specified. Single-color or Transparent backgrounds are free upon request for any digital commission. Any other kind of background is considered an Add-On and will raise the quote price of the commission.
If you want a commission of something I haven't mentioned, you may ask about it, and I will give you a quote.
I reserve the rights to refuse any commission for any reason. I am reasonable, but there are things that I'm not comfortable drawing. To save you the trouble, my Nope List displays some of the things that I will not draw under any circumstances.
Retaya's Nope List
*Pornogaphy or any other sexualized art. This is including hentai, ecchi, and fetish art.
*Sexualized nudity. I can be convinced to do artistic nudity, but it might raise the price.
*Complex technology, machinery, or vehicles. This includes cars, motorcycles, trains, and giant robots.
*Complex cityscapes. I can be convinced to do simple cityscapes, but I won't draw entire skylines in great detail.
*Hateful or insensitive imagery. I will not draw anything that is cruel to any particular group of people. This includes any race, sexuality, gender identity, religion or political affiliation.
These are drawn in pencil. The outlines are darkened, but little to no shading is done.
Humanoid Bust: $10
Humanoid Half-body: $15
Humanoid Full-body: $20
Pencil Drawing or Digital Line Art
Pencil Drawings are the completed versions of a pencil sketch, where shading is applied to the drawing.
Digital Line Art is a drawing that is inked in Manga Studio using a single color. The default has black lines on a white background, but lines and background can be any color that you request.
Humanoid Bust: $15
Humanoid Half-body: $20
Humanoid Full-body: $25
Digital Flat Colored
This is a digital line art that has been given unshaded colors. The line art can either be black, or can be done in a color-hold style. Color-hold is when the lineart of something is a darker version of the overall color (commonly seen in MLP). Pony art is done in color-hold style by default. Humanoid art is done with black lineart by default. If you want something different, you must ask.
Humanoid Bust: $17
Humanoid Half-body: $22
Humanoid Full-body: $27
Digital Color Shaded
This is the shaded version of Digital Flat Colored. It can be done in either a soft shaded or cell-shaded style. Soft-shaded is the default.
Humanoid Bust: $20
Humanoid Half-body: $25
Humanoid Full-body: $30
This is a drawing that, from start to finish, is painted directly into Manga Studio. There is no line art involved. If you want line art of any kind over a painted picture, it will raise the price.

Humanoid Half-body: $30
Humanoid Full-body: $35

Be as thorough as possible, and make sure to tell me about any details that are important to you. I will ask you questions if I am unsure about something.
Character Pose/Expression: Describe the type of pose, expression, or emotion that you want your character to convey. You can be as vague or as specific as you want. If you are vague, or if you leave this part of the form blank, I will assume that you are leaving the decision up to me.
