I've got some commissions open! I've got examples of my work below as well as my Terms and my prices! Please consider commissioning me! Also, please read through all my terms before commissioning me! Thanks!
It would be helpful if you sent people this commission sheet I made if they're interested in commissioning me. I would appreciate shares of this sheet and everything below in general.
WHAT I WILL DRAW: NSFW, mild gore, anime, OCs (mine or your own), fanart
WHAT I WILL NOT DRAW: Anything with illegal elements (such as child pornography or bestiality), full - blown furries or scalies (not referring to humanoid characters with animal features!), excessive gore, art that promotes hate or witch hunts someone
When requesting a commission, be concise, yet crystal clear about what you want! Send me as many references as you can, and as a general rule of thumb, a wall of images is better than a wall of text. If you exhibit any behavior that isn't professional, I will decline the commission. Follow all rules I've listed above and you should be fine.
II. Payment Methods
I accept USD (United States Dollars) [$] through PayPal transactions. I can accept no other currency at this time, and I expect commissioners to convert their currency at checkout. Full payment is accepted up front before I start any commissions.
I'll do my best to give you updates on my progress, whether through here or through another means of communication. I will give updates in writing or through low-res, watermarked WIPs if the piece is taking longer than normal until the piece is finished. I'm going to communicate with you to the best of my ability to ensure I am creating exactly what you want. I will do my best to update if something is preventing me from delivering by the due date, etc. The time that it takes to do a commission depends on the piece, but I will try not to take longer than 3 months on one piece, and the average piece should take between 1-3 days. Factors like how many commissions I'm taking at a time should be considered when you commission me, be sure to ask how many slots are already filled!
IV. Customer Satisfaction
I'm gonna do everything in my power to make sure that every customer that commissions me is 100% satisfied. After a commission is finished, ONLY MINOR CHANGES are allotted without an additional fee. This includes but is not limited to small coloring/lining mistakes. If you want anything significantly greater than that to be changed, it will be extra, no exceptions. This includes but is not limited to an outfit change, outfit addition or subtraction, background change or anything that makes me have to redraw it completely. If your reference was not clear from the start, you are not allowed minor changes without a fee. It is detrimental that you have a clear reference and know exactly what you want when you commission me.
V. Copyright/Usage Policy
