Yes, I'm open for sculpture commissions~

Note or email me for an estimate, I don't bite. :3
I mostly price things by size, followed by complexity. For example, a 4' iguanodon running on one foot would be more than a 4' crocodile standing on all fours. A 4' velociraptor covered in feathers would be more than either, particularly if the feathers weren't something easily obtainable or had to be sculpted.

Things I need to know:

Species or reference
Is it the whole creature, half, or a bust?
Open or closed mouth?
Is it going outside?
Do you want a base(a small, basic base is included in the price estimate for anything that obviously needs one, like anything standing on one or two legs), if so that's a separate estimate.
Position(if you aren't sure, I can sketch samples)
Colors(Again, I can do samples.)

Payment: I can take personal checks or PayPal, and I start work once I have half down as a deposit. The remaining amount is due after completion and once I have the exact shipping price.


FYI: Most feathers are illegal to possess in the US, even things like blue jay feathers. Only domestic or non-native bird parts are allowed. Chickens, of course, are the easiest to find and come in an amazing range of colors and patterns(although it isn't always easy to find skins of rarer breeds), they can also be dyed. There's also quail, pigeons, starlings, grouse, pheasants, peafowl, parrots, etc.

I've bugged you a couple of times with questions and stuff in the past already, but right now I am finally starting to work with chicken feathers. Got freshly plucked ones from about ten chickens and I must say: I tip my hat to you. This is SO much work, haha, cleaning them and getting them ready for crafts. :)

Heh, well plucked feathers are really hard to work with anyway. It's a lot easier with whole chicken skins.
