I schedule a 'fanned' pattern so several commissions can run concurrent at different stages. So if you have a project in mind, let me know and we'll find the best time for its completion.
I specialize in creating unique custom projects, from single figures to entire armies.
When painting for a client, the same care and devotion goes into the client's project as a personal one.
To be direct, what many studios label "tabletop" quality is something I would not be enthusiastic about pushing around a tabletop battlefield myself. Therefore I hesitate to use the term "Tabletop Quality". If you are interested in this style of painting, I would not reject the project out of hand, but I am more interested in working on higher quality projects, so accepting the commission would depend on my schedule and the interest of the project.
If you are looking for something more than minimally serviceable 'Tabletop' quality, you have come to the right place.
Commissions don't have to be large projects: Do you want one single miniature for a Role Playing game, or an Army commander? No problem. Do you want an army of hundreds of miniatures? Not a problem either.
If you are a dedicated painter, who prefers to paint their own miniatures, this studio can still provide you with more than just inspiration and ideas. Many who prefer to play with miniatures they paint themselves find they don't have time to assemble, or don't have the time or skill to create the conversions they envision. If you find yourself in such a situation you have found the solution.

"Army Class" is the 'Tabletop Quality' of a few colors and minimal shading and highlighting.
Squad Class: A higher level of painting. Good Quality. Something I'd be happy to push around the table myself. Recommended for large armies or small squads when on a budget. Often good for heavy use miniatures as well, such as Blood Bowl. Many colors, Shade lining between items such as weapons, helmets, straps, etc, At least 3 levels of gradation between shade & highlight. Eyes are painted & can include simple iconography.
Elite Squad Class: A very high level of painting. Win or lose, your miniatures will look good doing it. A good choice for finely detailed models that you want to stand out. Command sections for large units, Blood Bowl teams, skirmish squads for games like Warmachine, Malifaux, Blood Bowl, Mordheim, Infinity, Alkemy, etc. Similar to Squad class: just more focus, care & attention given to make them something even more special.
Character Class: The highest level of painting I offer. Not limited to individual miniatures, but well suited to them. If you want a group or even an entire army with that level of care & attention however, I will be happy to make that happen. Appropriate for very detailed miniatures. This class always starts with a white base coat for maximum color impact and effect. Wet blending and multiple glazing layers are used. The painting class you want if you want your miniature to stand out and look appropriate as a centerpiece. Smooth blending, freehand design, limited pallet with wide spectrum of lights and shadows, all of these aspects can be found in this type of painting class.
Terrain: A nice army looks even better on a nice battlefield. Terrain is the finishing touches to a nice miniatures game. With full experience in terrain painting & creation, there is no limit to the battlefields you can have from Laughing Ferret Studio. Look for terrain ready to buy coming in 2012. I'm always accepting commissions for any type of terrain at any time.
