Interested in a personalised, digitally painted badge? You've come to the right place!
All slots for 2018 has been filled. I'll auction off one badge in August - keep your ears open!
What is a ConBadge?
If you've ever been to a convention, like Blizzcon, you might've noticed that some attendees carry an personalised badge with their nickname on it, additionally to the entry pass. That personalised badge is what I offer to create for you.
My badges are as detailed and rendered as my paintings, so they double as a commission! The process of getting them made is very similar to regular commission paintings. You send me a form with what you'd like made, and I'll keep you updated throughout the process. When it's finished and you've approved of it, I send it your way!

Painterly vs Polished
Painterly style badge is a bit different than my polished works. It's is a lot less detailed with limited revision. It's A3 and not A2. You'll receive a rough sketch and the final image. Other than that, it's pretty much the same!
Terms of Service
1.1 Client Requirements
Client must be above the legal age (18+)
You must be available and reply to my emails within 24 hours (weekends excluded).
All references must be provided before the commission starts. I can work from visual and/or written references. Please only include the information I actually need - I don’t need to know who the mother of their grandfathers’ cousin is.
Payment. I expect the invoice to be paid within 24 hours unless agreed otherwise.
Read the Terms of Service in full.
When the commission is completed, post only the watermarked version online.
All rights and ownership of the artwork remain with the artist.
The commissioned artwork is for personal use only. That means:
You cannot alter, modify, distribute or use it for commercial purposes. This includes but is not limited to: selling the artwork in any way shape or form, using the artwork as a business logo, using the artwork to promote your business/book/website etc.
Limited usage licence is given to the client - I draw this for you to cherish, use as your social media avatar, wear proudly at conventions, put on your OC pages and print out and hang it up on your room.
Minor changes such as cropping or adding text are allowed.
Do not edit out my signature.
If you wish to post a commission from me in your deviantart gallery, you must include “by Naariel” in the title and post the watermarked version.
I have the right to alter, modify and post the illustration on social media, patreon, sell it in my shops, create merchandise, etc.
1.3. Custom Frame
If none of my current frames interest you, or if you have a specific frame in mind, I am more than happy to work with you on creating a custom frame. Due to the nature of frames and the amount of work that goes into them, I'd like to make the frame available for future conbadge clients. But if you'd like to be the sole, unique, exclusive owner of the frame, that's possible too.
Custom Frame: £60
Exclusive Custom Frame: £120
2.1 Payment and Prices
Payment via Paypal.
When the deal is agreed, I will send you an invoice to your paypal email address.
I will not start working on the badge commission until payment is received.
Roughly 4.2% of the total price are PayPal fees (varies slightly depending on your country).
50/50 payment can be arranged.
Exclusivity (not posted to social media/not sold in shops) can be arranged for a fee.
Tips are very welcome! My invoices allow tips to be added with the payment. You can also send tips via https://ko-fi.com/naariel
Time consuming elements and work will increase the price. Below is a quick guide for what you can expect. Contact me for a correct price estimate.
Wallpaper Version: £5
Shoulder Armour: £25
Phyiscal Print: See 4.1
Custom Frame: £60+
PS: Only wallpaper, physical print and custom frame will be charged for in Painterly Commissions.
I can refund 90% of the payment if I haven’t yet started on your commission. No refunds after I’ve started.
If I fail to complete a commission due to illness or any other reason, refund will be paid in full.
3.1 Technical Information/Drawing Process
You will receive four digital images of the finished painting. Two high resolution (with and without frame), and two lower resolution versions (with and without frame) for posting online.
My default canvas is A2 with 300dpi.
Process pictures, sent on email/twitter.
Average turnaround time from sketch to finish is 3-4 weeks.
I will not draw anything that can end up on /r/ImpracticalArmour or light clothing. (See my NSFW commission info for this)
No robots. I am not at a sufficient skill to produce a satisfactory result.
No guns that aren’t in game. If they are in game, it’s fine.
Corrections are fine at any point during the painting process - but let me know what you want corrected as soon as possible!
I will do one revision of the image after I’ve showed the finished product. That means you must write in your replying email if you’d like something changed. Any changes after that point will cost £5.
I am only human and I can read wrong/make a mistake. Please look carefully over your commission to make sure I got everything right.
3.3 Retention of Images and Files
I will store the files 6 months after completion. If you lose your print after that, I cannot guarantee I still have it.
Badges are printed on 280 gsm Satin photo paper, laminated with the badge motif on both sides. I offer any size that is in the A3 ratio (11.7 x 16.5 inches). The default size is 9.5 x 13.5 cm / 3.7 x 5.3 inches.
If you'd like a print of your commission without buying the goodiebag, this section is for you. Prints are printed on 280 gsm Satin Pearl Photo Paper without border. These prices are only valid if a print is ordered -before- the commission is completed.
A3 £ 10
A4 £ 7
A5 £ 5
If you want with a border just let me know. Please note a small signature will be present on the final print.
Shipping will depend which shipping option you’d like. Most countries allow for your print to be tracked - let me know if you want tracking and I’ll let you know the shipping costs.
I can only replace a print that’s been lost/damaged if you choose with tracking.
Products are sent without tracking unless agreed upon otherwise.
