FAQ

Q: how can i place an order for something?
A: email me at samdejesusjr@gmail.com

Q: what type of work do you do?
A: i typically deal with figurine commissions, usually based on popular video games, however i am more than happy to do commissions of whatever character you like: fictional characters, cartoons or even your own original character.

Q: how do you make these figurines?
A: these are originally 4-inch Kidrobot Do-It-Yourself blanks, that have been modified extensively to resemble a character. i can also use other items (such as action figures) in order to make the character less cartoony. these are one of a kind sculptures that have been built with clay and paint, so they are susceptible to damage if mishandled or dropped (read: not a child's play thing!)

Q: how much?
A: depending on the amount of sculpting needed, my work starts at $100. more detail necessitates a higher price! for example, a simple figure such as fav.me/d3cpsqy will cost $100, while custom action figures fav.me/d3jvqbv will go for as much as $300. orders over $300 will also be charged 2.9% in order to cover Paypal's transfer fee.  i will ask for 50% of my quoted price to place you into my commission queue.  the other 50% is taken when i begin work on your project.  shipping+insurance is paid after the commission is complete.

Q: what about discounts?
A: i am doing a new loyalty discount system starting in 2014.  after you order a sculpture, you are given a 5% discount for the rest of your commissions for the next 365 days.  if you spend more than $500 within that time span, you get 10% off of one commission.  if you refer a friend who places a commission with me, you earn an additional 5% off your next order.  the maximum amount allowable is 15% off of one commission.

Q: what about shipping?
A: shipping costs are also paid by the buyer. this includes packaging to protect the sculpture and insurance in case of damage.

Q: when do you ship?
A: i ship only after shipping payment is made. my shipping days are monday and thursday.

Q: how can i pay?
A: i take payment only thru paypal and dwolla. all orders will require a relatively small advance to be used towards materials.

Q: what about refunds?
A: as a buyer, your opinion is sought throughout the creation process - you can ask for specific requests or modifications. all sales are final.

Q: how long does it take to make one?
A: depending on the character, anywhere from 3 days up to 2 weeks. please also take into account my current commission queue.

Q: do you make art other than toys/figurines?
A: yes i do! i can make drawings and paintings, either on paper, canvas or skateboards. the price of these also depend on the amount of detail (time) spent on the object.

$300 is the base for a 6-inch figurine.  this is because it is figurine with a decent amount of detail/colors.

the dragon's height would be at 6-inches, but with her form will probably at least 10 inches in length.
