First to consider are the options for your distinctive piece… Let’s say you were interested in having a character from a game you played or story you wrote illustrated. How far do you want your vision of that character to go? We have 4 stages or, Levels, that we use as a basis for our time and your cost.

This is not a custom background, but rather one we design for you. Other Levels can have this for an additional $5 to their cost.
