SYoshiko's Profile Picture
S. Yoshiko
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
I was born in San Jose California (San Francisco Bay area,) but I grew up in the country. Nature and animals have always been an inspiration. I started drawing as soon as I could hold a crayon. I'm essentially self taught. I made the switch to digital 3 years ago when I got illustrator then 2 years ago I finally bought a wacom tablet and I got corel and then photoshop. It was about time to join the crowd of digital artists - I kept seeing great digital work that pushed me to make the switch. Since then I've been furiously generating pieces and playing with new programs here and there. I have an interest in animation and 3d modeling but I don't want to get too far ahead of myself. Almost all of my art is representational, a lot of which is fantasy, and I have an affinity for strong female figures. I also enjoy depicting animals both real and mythical, so I guess most of my work is of living things - animals or people.

Prices are in USD

commissions below $30 do not get revisions, only prelim and final. 

Every commission is different, and prices above reflect time spent not necessarily content/subject matter. Correspondence, additional revisions, size, and amount of creative license all affect price. Character research, specific locations and attire, jewelry and multiple figures will increase the price. 
The lowest prices in each category represent the option of giving me creative freedom, I work best this way and I do not skimp on detail, it saves time not making changes to the art. 

as a general rule add 40$ per extra person

Commission schedule includes:

Bullet; Red Preliminary sketch 1-2, to agree on design and a payment
Bullet; Red WIP (work in progress) about 50-75% done, chance to revise the progress
Bullet; Red soft final, a chance to add very minor things and adjust things like color
Bullet; Red final full size image delivered and remainder of payment.
  Bullet; Blue no cap on revisions, until satisfaction, is also available for extra fee

All pieces will be around 9"x12"inches / 22x30cm  unless otherwise requested. 

Commissions take about 3-8 weeks
Rush is available for time sensitive projects - depending on my work load and flexibility
rush orders may require an additional fee

For new clients I take a 1/2 - full payment after the preliminary sketch has been approved. 

Return clients may wait until piece completion to pay. Payment plans are available for larger commissions. Deals are available for multiple pages. 

I retain the  right to display finished work in my portfolio/gallery/page or other promotional works like art books and business cards. Please discuss if you want your art to be private - it will effect the pricing.


(please provide me with a non obstructive watermark if you'd like it placed on your image or if you'd like the service of designing one.)

Prices include:
  • Heart permission to use your art as cover art, 
  • Heart enable prints on DA
  • Heart  upload it to your page(s), 
  • Heart to give as gifts, 
  • Heart please discuss if you wish to commission illustrations for a book which will be published and sold, or for advertisement and marketing purposes, as that is not included in the price. 

Please ask permission before altering my art in any way. 

For pieces involving Multiple OC's, only one person may commission the piece without paying extra , if each OC's creator  will be part of the commission process - the price is and additional 50% to account for the extra time corresponding with and editing for multiple people. 

  • References are the responsibility of the client, if none are provided, a detailed description should be provided and artistic license will be taken. 
  • Please provide photo references whenever possible when specific details are important to the piece, such as pose, specific locations, clothing, weapons etc. 

Understand that I am not a draftsman, I have a personal style, please only commission me if you like my styles. If you have a style you would like emulated, please send an example and I can try to adapt to it in my own way. 

Brief and exact information and communication is the key to getting your art as fast as possible. Do not ask me to read a chapter of a story - summarize a scene or outline the key attributes of your characters. There's so many great stories and characters - I wish I had time to read about them all.
