Hi, I'm a freelance illustrator and book cover artist for Rotwang Studio!
I've always loved drawing, and since I was a child I realised that I was actually pretty skilled in that, so it's always been clear to me that my study path would've led me to make illustrations.

I attended an arts high school and after that, the NEMO Academy of Digital Arts, in which I studied Entertainment Design.
I've been improving my skills since then, both traditional and digital, and I've just recently got into 3-D illustration as well.

This is my usual worldwide pricing and conditions for one custom book cover illustration
(Note: for bulk commissions such as card games, RPG's, tabletop games or other projects just ask because flat-rate prices are applied for the entire work)
- € 300 Eur (around $ 348 USD - Exchange Sep 2018) for exclusive use* in resolution for book cover print.
- Add € 50 Eur (around $ 58 USD - Exchange Sep 2018) for full wrap around cover for paperback with all graphic layout, title and writings.

My usual commissions work as follows:
- You send me a brief of what you need adding drafts and reference images.
- I confirm the price (it may differ if the work is very complex).
- After receiving a 50€ (Euros) advance payment, I will start to work and send you via email drafts watermarked in low resolution.
- After definitive approval of the images and complete payment via PayPal, I will send you the definitive in hi-res in jpg format without compression or different file format if needed.
Payments via PayPal.

* "exclusive use" means that you may use in exclusive the illustration for your cover, for promotional purposes and/or to produce promotional material (such as t-shirts, gadgets and so on) or any other way you want to use it.
Of course you do not have the right to resell the work to third parties as if it were yours, because I maintain the intellectual rights and ownership of the work.
These conditions are related to a single commissioned illustration. The greater the number of commissioned illustrations in the same purchase order, the lower their unit price.
