Commission Terms of Service
Rules:If commissions are closed, please do not ask to be put on a wait list. Closed means that I am not accepting commissions at this time, wait list slots included.
I am willing to draw partial nudity. I will not draw unobstructed shots of penetration or minors in adult situations. If you're not sure what's tasteful, please ask.
Both hetero and same sex couples are welcome.
I will not mimic a cartoon or another artist's style.
Due to issues with my wrist, I am not available for Complete Scene (full background) Commissions, comic work, con badges, reference sheets, covers, digital work, paintings, trades, or spec work at this time.
I will make up to three changes during the sketch stage. No changes will be made once the ink stage has begun. (Sketch previews and revisions are not available for Min-Pin / Sketch Card commissions.)
I reserve the right to choose which commissions I decide to take on. Commissions that make me uncomfortable or that I feel are beyond my abilities may be turned down.
Work Schedule:While my goal is to complete your image in a timely manner, I do have comic work and my personal artistic improvement to see to. I also have a life outside of the studio. As a result, commissions may take a few months to complete.
These commissions are done with Copic markers and Faber-Castell colored pencils. Occasionally, a marker will run out of ink or a pencil may snap. If this happens, the commission will be shelved until a refill is obtained. This may mean a week or more's delay. If this happens, please bear with me. Materials running out is just one of the hazards of working non-digitally.
Ordering:Once you've reviewed the commission options and chosen the one you're interested in, email me a good description of what you'd like me to draw.
A good description includes information and specific details that you feel are essential. Please tell me these. Does your character have any odd markings, scars, or facial characteristics that I should know about? Are any parts of the anatomy like ears, tail, or feet different from how I normally draw them?
While I don't need a full history of your character, a bit of information about their personality helps. I enjoy drawing characters reacting to the world around them. It makes for a more interesting image. Letting me know who they are personality-wise lets me come up with a more fitting expression for them. Please don't assume I'm psychic. Tell me.
References must be received within one week of commissioning me. If you do not get your references in within a week, your commission will be canceled and your money refunded. I can not do my job until you tell me what you want. I'm a busy woman. I do not have the time to hunt you down.
Once I've approved your commission request I'll send an invoice to you via email.
Rights and Redistribution:While you may have bought the commission, I, as the artists, retain certain rights when it comes to the images that I draw.Print Rights - Rest assured, I have no interest in selling prints of your characters. I am also not interested in claiming copyright over your characters. That being said, I ask that you do not make prints of the commission either. If you want to sell prints of your commission, use it as a book cover, or claim some other commercial use, the print rights are available for an additional fee. (Print rights to commissions involving CN:H characters are not available.)
Image Redistribution - Basically sharing the image on my blog, my galleries, and my site. It is my right as an artist to showcase work that I have done. If you desire privacy, that can be secured for an additional $50. You must ask for this in advance. That being said, please feel free to share the commission on your blog, gallery, site, do minor edits, or use it for fun images such as icons and banners. All I ask is that you attribute the original image to me so others who may enjoy the work can find me.
Deadlines:Deadlines must be cleared at the start of the commission. Do not spring a deadline on me after payment has been made. If you do, I will terminate your commission and refund your payment.
Payment:Half the payment is due up front for Max-Pin and Complete Scene commissions. Payment is due up front and in full for all Min-Pin / Sketch Card and Mid-Pin commissions. Work will not start until the first payment is received. The remainder of the payment is due on the commission's completion. Once the second half of the payment is received, the original drawing will be slipped into the mail.
Clients in the USA, please add $5 USD for priority shipping. International clients, please add $10 USD. Commissions will be packed in a padded envelope between foam board to protect the art. Due to the lack of a second car, packages are sent out once a week only, on Saturdays.
My preferred method of payment is via PayPal. If PayPal doesn't work for you or you'd prefer to use another method, please let me know and we'll work something out.
Refunds:If you cancel the commission before the work has begun, your payment will be refunded in full. If you cancel once work has begun, your payment will be refunded minus the amount for work already completed.
If I cancel the commission, your payment will be refunded in full, even if work on the commission has already begun.
Updates:You can track the progress of all current commissions on the blog. If you have any questions or want a report on how your commission is progressing, feel free to email me. I'll respond as soon as possible, usually within a few days or so.
