Xella

Hi! I'm Alicia 'Xellandria' Kilpatrick, more commonly known as Xella around the internet and, well... just about everywhere else, too. I'm a both a digital and traditional artist who's been lurking around the fringes of both the World of Warcraft fandom and BlizzCon since the beginnings. When I'm not doodling elves and goblins and pandas and the like I can usually be found in-game—leveling alts or battle pets, or collecting transmog and hoarding shirts.

I'm excited to offer con badges for the first time this BlizzCon season, and hope to see some of you in Anaheim this coming November!

You can find examples of my art at XellArt, and a list of my current marker colours here.
If that's not quite enough Xella for you, you can also find me on Tumblr, Twitter, and Twitch.

Example Badges

Badge Styles

This year, I'm primarily offering a hybrid badge—inked digitally, coloured traditionally! Badges are die cut, 4-5" (10-14cm) in the largest dimension, backed with a complementary patterned paper, laminated, and slot-punched for use on a badge or ID holder or lanyard. You'll also receive a high resolution digital scan of both your completed badge and the uncoloured inks.

If you prefer my digital colouring style or if international shipping costs, timing, or reliability are a concern, fully digital badges are also available—please note that this option does not include a physical, mailed copy of your badge; you'll need to print it out yourself.

When?

Barring extenuating circumstances, badges are typically completed and delivered no later than 2-3 weeks past the sketch's approval and payment. International shipping may require a longer period for delivery due to customs, and in my experience customs wait times can't be reliably estimated. The entire process from initial interest to completion usually takes less than a month, but you'll receive a personalized estimated time for completion with your quote so you know when to be on the lookout for more information!

What's Your Process?

  • Fill out this form to let me know you’re interested in a badge commission! Tell me about your character—include as much or as little information as you’d like. Keep your eyes out—you should receive a reply email within a day or so.
  • Once we’ve agreed on a price and discussed the details, I’ll do a sketch of your character and email it to you for approval. If there are changes you want made or anything you’re unsure about in the sketch, this is the time to mention them or ask.
  • The sketch is considered finalized and no additional edits will be accepted once payment is made, so please be sure you’re happy with the sketch!
  • I accept payment via PayPal; a link will be provided with your sketch. Other payment options may be considered, please email me for more information.
  • Once payment has been received I’ll finish your commission within 2-3 weeks, email you a digital scan of the completed badge and a copy of the uncoloured inks, and mail you the physical copy (if applicable)—shipping within the US is included!

Terms of Service

  • You may repost or edit the artwork for your badge for personal use (avatars, forum signatures, and the like). Credit is greatly appreciated, but not necessary.
  • I typically stream my commission work on twitch.tv/xellandria, and this may include some or all of your badge. If you don’t want your badge streamed, please let me know as soon as possible. On the flip side, if you'd like me to let you know if/when I'll be streaming work on your badge, I can do that too (though I make no promises that we'll both be conveniently scheduled to each other!)
  • I also post the finished products to my art tumblr; if you would prefer your badge not be posted, or posted after a delay (e.g. if you’re giving the badge as a gift), please let me know.
  • Changes or additions to your badge will not be accepted after payment is received; please be sure you're happy with the sketch!
  • I retain the right to refuse commissions for any reason.
  • While I will do everything in my power to make sure your badge arrives in a safe and timely fashion, I cannot be held responsible for lost, stolen, or late packages.
