Possible payment by Wikipedia for sketches

lawndart8675309 Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2015
I posted a few days ago asking if artists would be interested in creating and donating portraits. Money seemed to be an issue.

I am now thinking of approaching individuals at the Wikimedia Foundation about payment for sketches.

So, how much would an artist charge for an original, simple pencil portrait sketch of a person?

To answer your question:
Some people tend to charge $1-20 depending on the drawing.
I know some people who charge $15 for full-colored body sketches w/ background vs. someone else might
charge $20 for a colored full body with no background.

It really just depends on the artist. I would say, unless the artwork is astonishing, don't buy commissions that cost $40+ (that's just me, though.) 

(You may have found someone already, but just in case...)

I do commissions (portrait OR full body)
Portraits are 00.75 USD (cents) colored w/ full background
Full Bodies are $1.00 USD colored w/ full background.

You can look for more info here:  $1 Full Body Commissions$1 FULL BODY Commissions 
Additional character per. drawing will add 00.50
Ask me about NSFW
I do not accept points. (yet.)
My prices are final
I have the right to deny anyone of service
Examples of le art:
*I can do portraits for 00.75*

You can contact me via this journal entry, deviant Notes, or email. (

(it has my most /recent/ artwork.)

i believe this belongs to the projects forums until payment is confirmed.

Yes, you may be right. I am sorry. I am new here. To be extra clear again, I do not represent Wikimedia and no discussions have taken place with them about this. This post is simply a probe to see if the community here would be interested and affordable.
