So I often to get asked to do illustration that I don’t have time/patience for. In such cases, I try to pass the work off to someone who both wants and needs it. I do not take a percentage. Here’s the job:

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.

I think I could handle this, if you want to pass along my name? Love drawing organic forms like bamboo, even if the majority of my work is figurative.

Hey Kez :) I'm interested in taking this guy on. I'd be on his scale, but I really need to know what he means by bamboo background before I can give a fair estimate. I have 1 example of kanji work on paper, and I took a Chinese (not the same I know) calligraphy course in college.

Example of past work: sta.sh/01iqrwyvnxj4
That's traditional, but I can do digital. 

I require 1/2 payment to my paypal after I sketch something he approves, then full payment after he receives a watermarked finished product. I will send a finalized finished product via email after full payment is received. Timing will be reliant on the final design.
