Client wants an 8.5x11” black and white digital drawing of the seven virtues of bushido (slightly modified to fit him and as text, not illustration, already written) and a detailed background/frame of bamboo, leaves, etc. This image will be engraved/embossed on a silver plaque by a jeweler of his choice whenever he has the funds to do so. He believes the jeweler will handle any shading, so this will mostly be line art with bold shadows and overlaid text.
Amount: he’s pretty cheap, looking to get it done for ~$45-50 USD. Comment here if you're interested, and I'll pass on your information. If you have a different bid (only higher, no undercutting, folks) feel free to post that. Please don't PM, just comment. I really hate the PM system on here :/
I will forward the info to him, and he will pick a style that suits him. Sorry I don’t have more details on the job itself, I only got a vague idea of what he wanted. So I’d recommend getting a GOOD idea of what he wants before you spend your time doing any sketches.
If you are going to spend more than an hour or two working on this commission, it's probably not for you. Not unless you really need the money I guess, in which case, more power to ya.
