I always recommend Bill Galvan. Great guy with great prices. He has lots of portraits as well. Here are ones from his Instagram of covers my brother or I have purchased

For a full figure sketch most artists will be well north of $200.

I have gotten some great sketches from current and former students of the Joe Kubert school who charge less than the bigger artists because they are just starting out. Keep in mind that the rates go up as they get more experience and demand.

Here are some artists (and their sketches) that might be closer to your budget:

Josh James





Max Fuchs






Chris Pugilise





Idan Knafo Kurbis





Nick Justus






Fernando Ruiz
Scott Hanna
Len Danovich
Erik Klaus
Bella Rachlin

You should be able to find most of these artists on Facebook.

It doesn't have to be charcoal specifically, but that's the look I have in mind.

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions! It's always fun to look at the art and there are a few artists I might reach out to. Keep them coming!

@RyanHicks Unfortunately Rogue was sold before I had a chance to see it. I took a picture of the sketch because I liked it so much. The other sketch that Idan is holding up is mine though.

Quick update bump - I took the plunge and put in a commission. I should be getting a preview pic soon, so I'll update more when that comes through.

Here's my preview pic. The comic is off to CBCS, so I'll actually have it in hand in... a year? Thanks to @RyanHicks for coordinating!
