My contact/paypal:

Current commission status: CLOSED (busy!)
Waiting list open: You are welcome to email me to be wait-listed,
please prepare to wait at least 9 months-1 year.


Dear potiential client:

+ Notes about contacting me: I am an e-mail person.
+ I am on e-mail all the time, or most of the time.
+ If I am going out of the country I will notify you ahead of time and rearrange the changes

+ I don’t use cell phone much, need to know when you will call

+ I do use facebook for clients, fb messenger can reach me.

+ I typically will ask for 20%-50% down payment for first time client,
to whatever I will be delivering after a sample sketch done for your project,after I deliver then I will ask for the remaining agreed amount.

+ We accept stable monthly payment based on your budget needs.


All clients are required to put in an advance after contract signed, and a small sample work has been provided. I will provide my own contract should the client does not have one and the job complexity requires one.

All my contract are “Freelance contractor” work for hire agreement. Meaning I finish the work on my schedule, if there’s a specific date required for the work to be done, a specific contract needs to be provided and signed.


< Guidelines for character description- for writers>

-please use that guideline to check whether you have included everything in your script, very often I get writers who describe their characters too briefly for me to illustrate. If you are very open minded and want to let me decide, perfect! But I still need some bases.

  • What I don’t do: pornographic material, animation for free or below my rates.
  • Revisions: I will provide 1-2 free revisions per item, I will add to the cost at 25 per hour rate if revisions needs requires me to spend more than 10 minutes per item.
    (if I spent 10 extra mins is 0.16 hour = 4-5 dollars)

MY policy: (for my client’s peace of mind)

Rights policy: Typically, if I make work for client, I go with work for hire contract. (e-mail agreement and this page serves as written agreement.) This applies to both my indie/non-commercial client, and commercial clients, my clients are free to use the images as they please. I will not ask for additional reward, even if you went ahead and made 1 million, 1 trillion from it, unless a contract states my royalty share, I will not cause you trouble for it. But I do ask for proper credit given, and let me use it for portfolio, so i may get more business.

Hiring: I do have regular assistants and I will inform you about who worked on the project under me.

Delivery date: I typically do not want to rush a commission, I will try to give you an update every week or every other week. If you need things in a hurry, rates increase.

Additional costs: If you made additional requests, changes, that cost me beyond agreeable time, I will request for more payment to cover time spent. I work only for the quality matching to the amount you pay for.


Normal delivery- weekly or monthly update.


Quick sketch: -25 USD

  • Inking a pre-made sketch: – 25 USD
  • Inked/toned piece: -40-60 USD
  • Redraw your design, and color: – 25 USD and up
  • 1 character, from script, simple or pre-made background: 25-40 USD


Design and layout work:


A single Character turn around sheet ready for 2D animation production needs, frontal, side, 3/4, and back view, colored, starts at 150 USD+ (rates may vary based on complexity)

A single character front and back sheet: starts at $100.


Background, layout, scenes: depends on purpose and complexity

Simple- starts at 50-100 USD (2-4 hours work)

Highest quality– to 750 USD (30 hours work)

Prefer: naturalistic scenery, old/historic buildings


Manga /comic commission:

private, indepent production delivery- no deadline, on my schedule, if I have bigger jobs it may come slower.

  • Sketch only for reference- 25 per page
  • I do take a whole book commission:
    Payments can be split into chapters or sections, we can talk about details.
  • I am not going to proof read for you, what you wrote goes on, copy and paste.
    Please make sure your script has been proof-read, and edited before you send it to me.
    (if your script has too many typos/grammars I will tell you, or simply turn down the job.)
  • I may provide webcomic hosting on my site if my client agrees to it.

2D Animation for private commissions:

Private, independent production delivery– no deadline, on my weekly part-time schedule.

I provide a weekly update to you on the progress.

Payment: You can determine a monthly payment you want and we will work with that.

Storyboarding: (see samples via link)

Indie/non-commercial: starting rate 25 USD per storyboard page based on the script, no limited time delivery.

Animatic: depends on length

2D Animation for private commissions: (from cheap to best)

Delivery time: I will work out a schedule with you if you need it,
but if you have to rush me I will X2.5 times my rates, because of overnights fee plus recruitment.

Cheap: (2-3 drawings per second)

25-40 USD Stills – still shot, nothing moving, with film composite and simple movement.

80 USD – 180 USD: 1 looping animation, such as 1 character simple hair loop, (6-12 drawings) 1 stock background, cleaned/colored. (each new character on the scene is another $60)

In animation, a lot of backgrounds can be reused and repainted.
The reused background count as stock image, I won’t charge any for that, we can only known for certain when storyboard is finished.

Higher quality non-looping full animation: (15-30 drawings per 1-2 second)

Rate: ( sample links are for the quality you will see, not the frame rate)

Sketch animation: 5 per drawing  (around $75 and up per second)

ink animation: 10 per drawing (around $150 and up per second)

Single Shade Colored: 12 per drawing ($180 and up per second)

Shadow, highlight colored: 15 per drawing ($225 and up per second)

– Again, not all shots need high quality animation, some shots could be stills and pans, which will be around 30 USD.
Some shots could be just 1-3 drawings too. On average only a 1-2 shots could be this costly.

We will only know after the storyboard and animatic and proper production character design is made.


Clients can request native files upon final payment or after every periodic payment after the work is finalized, I don’t upload everyone of them because they take up a lot of space…

Effects and rendering: Depends on time


  • You can also provide me your own sound recordings and sound tracks at the start of the project.
  • I can handle basic sound effects if there’s a need.
  • We can also help with casting Voice actors and directing if needed.
  • For professional sound quality I pass it to our partner Greg Lim who’s a sound engineer/musician and he will give you a quote.


I typically give you a try out sketch first, if you are happy with it,
I will ask for 20%-50% down payment after my free sketch for first time client,
to whatever I will be delivering before I do the official bulk of the work,
after I deliver then I will ask for the remaining agreed amount.

* For corporate commercial projects, contact me for negotiation in detail.
