| In commissioning me,
you are paying for my time and my services. As the order
is made, it will be bound by my terms of service. I may
decline a commission at any given time should my terms of
service be broken.
All orders will be paid in USD. PayPal is the only
form of payment I am accepting at this time.
Do NOT send payment until I have accepted the order AND
have sent you the invoice with the necessary payment
information, as this may result in your order being
delayed. Payment must be in full and upfront before
production begins (the exception being animation
commissions, for which I will take a non-refundable 50%
deposit before beginning the project and the remaining
50% upon completion) unless stated otherwise. If needed,
we can negotiate a payment plan with a non-refundable
50% deposit; however, final payment must be received
BEFORE final product is delivered.
Please note that the prices listed in the art and
animation commission pages (in the price charts and
price estimate calculators) are only estimates and do
not convey what the actual cost of your order may be.
The final cost will discussed and negotiated by email
after I have received your order form.
All prices are subject to change and may increase with
excessive design work, multiple revisions, etc.
Art and Copyright -
In commissioning me, you are buying my time and service
ONLY; I still hold full copyright over the finished image,
and can use it in my portfolio, post it on my art blogs
and in my digital or printed art books and printed objects
(T-Shirts, etc.) or show its creative process in
Things I will draw include:
- Original characters, tasteful nudity/sexual
situations, and mild violence
Things I will NOT draw include:
- Fanart/Copyrighted characters*,
porn/explicit sexual situations, complex mecha,
excessive violence/gore, and anything offensive that
promotes hatred, discrimination, etc.
feel very strongly about getting paid for fanart, but
if the creator(s) of the original source has given
permission, I will consider it.
The work will be completed as soon as possible; however
if a deadline is agreed upon, then the work will be
finished before that deadline, provided that the client
sends back all necessary forms in a timely fashion. Please allow for no less than a
week for art commissions or three weeks for animation
commissions. This process requires mutual
communication as multiple steps must be signed off on
before I can continue at certain stages, so that you get
the best out of the experience. So please be sure to
check your email frequently within the time leading up
to your deadline.
My work is not to be edited, copied, traced, or
redistributed, in any way, without my explicit and
As the commissioner, you have the right to use the image
or animation for any personal matters. Commercial use
(anything for financial gain) is only permissible if you
have properly paid for that kind of service. Please note
that the prices listed on the art and animation commission
pages are for NON-Commercial commissions only. CLICK HERE to find out how you
can inquire about commercial rates.
Do not claim the work to be your own. Credit for my
work must be given when it is posted on your blogs or
wherever you post the product you have commissioned from
Refund Policy -
If at any point in the commission process I am feeling
uncomfortable, I retain the right to decline the
commission and will refund you in full.
If you cancel the commission during production, I will
refund you back your money with the exception of the
non-refundable 50% deposit and any additional revision or
design fees. If the final product has already been sent to
you in any way, no refunds
will be given.
This is why it is important to sign off on everything at
key steps and to have good communication throughout the
production process. I will do my best to provide frequent
updates when necessary and to offer any suggestions I
think may help you get the best results. By working
together we can make your vision a reality.
I respect and value the privacy and security of the
information I collect from you, the commissioner, in
order to complete these transactions. The information
you share with me through email, forms, contracts, and
payments, etc. is used strictly to process and fulfill
will not sell or redistribute the information you
provide to any third party. I may use/retain the
information from your order to process your commission
purchase, give a refund, provide customer service,
improve or customize my services or fulfill applicable
financial, tax, legal or compliance requirements.
The links I provide to process and fulfill your
commission are not accessible from my public website;
only myself, the commissioner and anyone they decide to
share such information with (though this is NOT
recommended) will have access to these customized pages.
Any links and pages regarding your transactions with me
will be erased upon
completion of each commissioned project.
Additional Animation Elements -
If you only need a few frames animated, I can add a
simple animation as an additional element to an ART
Commissioned image at $3+
per frame, depending on the complexity of the
animation. This add-on is limited to no more than 5
frames (Good for avatar thumbnails, simple banners,
etc.) and is only available for "Art Commissions". If
you are interested, please inquire about it when sending
Thank you very much for your time.
