Hello~ If you have a game you’d like me to bring to life, please look over my rates, rules & policies.

Pricing & breakdown

Sprites: CELL-SHADE / western flat

Bust $25 | Thigh-up $60 | Full Body $80
+ $10 / minor pose adjustment
+ $3 / expression OR $20 Main Character Pack (8 brows, 9+ eyes, 11+ mouths, fx)
+ $5+ / prop
+ $15+ / outfit x number of poses

soft-shade: 1.25x listed price

  • For character concepts, based off of your description, I will freehand a first draft. I will make a maximum of three edits to that draft. I haven’t had any complaints yet, but if you know you want to workshop the design extensively, you may need to find a different concept artist first.

  • Minor pose change is an arm movement. If you pose requires redrawing entire character, (ie fight stance, slouching, etc) that will be the price of a new base character.

  • Final Fantasy level detailed costumes will cost extra.

CG •

  • Cell-shade CGs start at $90/CG - Soft shade: $125/CG - It includes up to two characters.

  • Simple backgrounds included. Willing to coordinate with a background artist, or modify existing BG assets, but I can’t draw complicated backgrounds.

  • Additional characters, props or complex action sequences will cost extra in a CG. I will notify you if this is the case before starting.

Process • How it works

  • Email an inquiry with game info, quantity of assets, desired art style and project timeline.

  • I will provide a quote & turnaround time based on my current RL situation.

  • If everything checks out, you can send over character profiles, and I’ll sketch them

  • Initial sketches can be changed up to 3 times before proceeding

  • After sketching, I will require 1/2 of payment. PayPal preferred.

  • Then I will proceed to inks & flats, send a WIP, and then continue to final. Once I’m done, I’ll shoot over a low-res or watermarked file.

  • 2/2 of Payment

  • Done! .psds are yours. Good luck with coding! ♡

Rules & policy

  • prices are in US dollars $

  • Maximum of up to three minor edits once finals have been sent

  • Only digital files .psd (sprites) or .png (CGs) will be sent

  • I have the right to decline a commission at my own discretion, but generally speaking:

  • No hentai (…I’ve lost you, haven’t I? ಠ◡ಠ; ), loli-con, incest, extreme torture, pro-hate themes or mecha (can’t draw robots for shit).

FAQ • Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do you do rev-share projects?
A: Sorry, I don’t work on spec normally

Q: Can I do a single test commission first before I commit?
A: of course

Q: So does the 'Base Sprite' price not include any expressions?
A: Only one neutral face. Please add either the Main Character Pack ($20) or additional single faces ($3)

Q: How many expressions are included in the Main Character Pack?
A: Generally the pack covers all the expressions a character will need for the game. Some will have more than others, depending on their personality. You can request additional specific, reasonable ones.

Q: Do you take monthly installments / Can I commission one piece at a time per month? 
A: Ak sorry. Some months I’m completely unavailable, so it’s not a good call. If you need to split it up into batches of sprites and CGs, that is fine.

Q: Can I hire you to do SFW assets for my NSFW game?
A: Tentative yes. I don’t mind assisting for CGs / minor characters, but if you need nude sprites, you’re probably better off with a different artist.

10/10! Would work with again!
— Elijah, Apocrypha
I have nothing but good things to say about [Alita]. She has a phenomenal grasp on characterization.
Very professional, patient, and pleasant to work with! [Alita’s] characters are so colorful, lively, and radiate individuality and personality. Anyone who gets the chance to hire her for their project will be blown away!
— Alex, Lovebird Games
We are working with [Alita] on our upcoming otome and her talent is excellent but speaks for it itself; [Alita] is additionally a wonderful collaborator who brought her own to some characters in the best way and was always communicative and very understanding of our needs as a development team. In specific she is talented beyond belief at fun character looks who all have their own appeal and style! She made our team fall in love with our otome heroine, much more than ever before :D

We are delighted to have partnered with [Alita] and look forward to do so once more in the near future!
— Mero Interactive
I want to say that my jaw literally DROPPED multiple times when I’d open my inbox and see her art waiting for me. And I’m not ashamed to say that I have laughed, gasped, and fangirled while cycling through the many colorful expressions she has gifted our sprites. She made them better than I ever imagined and I could not be more excited to show them to the world when we release the game in the future! If you ever have the opportunity to work with her... TAKE IT!
— Taylor, Lovebird Games
I think I’m currently up to 7 or 8 [artists] including you and you have been the only reliable one (AND the fastest).
— Thomas, Red Eyes In the Darkness
Thank you as always for your *awesome*. ... Two indie RPG developers who I’ve been following were talking recently about having real difficulty with finding reliable people as 3D modelers, composers, and pixel artists have either flaked out on them or just not delivered what they said they would… So I wanted to say I’m really grateful for you because you’ve been that reliable for me.
