I'm available for private commissions as well as potential employment opportunities.
Commission General Terms
By commissioning me, you are agreeing to the terms of service.
I. General Terms
Contact me through email (via contact page or firstname.lastname@example.org) detailing your concept or idea. Please include the following necessary specifications such as size, colors, number of pieces, deadlines, etc. Provide neat references if possible.
Commission completion can take anywhere from one to two weeks. (It will very likely be faster than that, but I give myself extra time as a precaution).
Do not send payment until ALL details have been discussed and you, the commissioner, have been given the approval by me, the artist to do so. Commissions must pay a 50% deposit upfront. Commission will only be started once the 50% deposit is received. The other 50% of the deposit should be given once the commission is complete and delivered to the commissioner.
Payment can be made through PayPal or Venmo.
If using PayPal, please use only the "goods /services" option when sending payment. Select as "service/no address required". Do NOT send using the "family/friends/gifts" option. Invoices may be used in the future by the artist.
Only USD accepted.
III. Customer Satisfaction
Work in Progress updates will be delivered periodically to ensure the satisfaction of the commissioner. WIP's might be given if I, the artist, have any confusion about the commission. Please respond accordingly to such updates to maintain the deadline of the commission.
After a commission is finished, only small changes are permitted such as small coloring/marking mistakes. Any great changes such as outfit change, entire color pallet revisions, new pose/design, etc will come with an extra charge.
Please be clear with your concept to receive the most visually accurate commission. Do not edit your commission in anyway after it has been completed and delivered unless it has been approved by the artist.
IV. Copyright/Usage Policy
I, the artist, hold every right to the produced drawing, not the commissioner. Therefore I am allowed to use the copyrighted artwork to:
-Promote myself within any social platform (This does not mean I can use your commission to make money or profit off of it by making it into merchandise)
-To display or post it anywhere to my liking
-Watermark/signature is mandatory and will not be removed
The commissioner is allowed to:
-Use the copyrighted artwork for personal use only unless agreed otherwise
-Print the art and claim the right of their character(s)/figure(s) but not he drawing itself
-Use the art to promote themselves with proper credit given to the artist
The following is considered copyright infringement:
-Reproducing/using the copyrighted artwork commercially without the discussion and consent of the artist
-Removing any watermarks/signatures
-Altering the artwork without my, the artist's consent
V. Canceling/Refund Policy
I have the right to cancel and refund the money for your commission at any time. (This is highly unlikely, but is included in case of emergency that would leave your commission uncompleted). If payment has not been sent, the commissioner has the right to cancel the commission. The commissioner has no right to cancel of demand a refund from the artist under any circumstances after payment has been received.
If the commissioner files a chargeback against me, your right to everything I have ever created for the commissioner will be retracted. I, as the artist, have the right to sell the copyrighted artwork to new buyers.
