San Diego Comic Con Pre-Show Commission List Details




Send an email titled SDCC SKETCH, through my contact link at OR terry at terrydodsonart dot com (my usual web contact) letting me know the following 3 things:


 9” x 12” $400

 11” x 14"  $600

I will do a full figure or 3/4 figure depending on what works best for the composition on the 11" x 14",

and  likely it will be 3/4 or thigh up figure on the 9" x 12"

I do the sketches on 

Color Canson MiTeinte Pastel paper

with Red Col Erase Pencil, Copic Warm Grey Pens, Black Markers, and Prismacolor White Pencil or Pro White

IF you want your sketch in your SKETCHBOOK, just gauge the size to the 9 x 12 or 11 x 14. However, I won't be able to do many SKETCHBOOK commissions as I won't have the SKETCHBOOK until I'm at the Convention.

See below for sketch examples and visit my blog, Instagram, Deviant Art and Twitter for more examples.

I’m not taking Blank Cover Pre-Show requests, IF TIME ALLOWS I will draw them at the show so just check with me in person.

Prices range from $50 -$250
Head sketch to Bust

I’m not taking Remark Pre-Show requests,  IF TIME ALLOWS I will draw them at the show so just check with me in person.

A Single character and I decide if it needs a background but you are welcome to suggest.

Be clear as to what version of the character you want.

I suggest a top 3 list of what you want.


As you will be picking this up in person from me at SDCC , I need this. I’m only taking requests from people actually attending SDCC 

-------THE FINE PRINT------- 

- I’m only taking requests from people actually attending SDCC .

-I will take the first 20 COMMISSIONS requested via email and then CLOSE the list. I will then pick the sketches based on the SUBJECT I want to draw. I will contact you to let you know your piece was chosen, and request a partial payment via Paypal ($200 or $300) to hold the sketch place, and then the remainder from you at the show at the time of pick up.

-Once I stop the list, I will announce it is CLOSED and then I will let the 20 know they are on the list. If you don’t hear within 24 hours of CLOSED then your request was not one of the first 20. I will continue picking sketches from those 20 until the start of the show so everyone should know.

 -SO, not everyone will get a sketch and if you don’t hear from me with 24 hours of closing the list, you are NOT on the list of 20.

-If you do make the list of 20, you're NOT guaranteed a sketch, just that I’m choosing from that list of 20.

- It’s only when I email with the 2nd email and request partial payment, then you'll know I'm will draw your sketch.

-AND, due to my workload, I draw the majority of the sketches AT THE SHOW,  so you may not get confirmation until the day before the show starts (7/20).


Please ask in the thread below so everyone can see - thanks!
