Payment

Paypal invoices are preferred but other methods may be discussed

Work will not begin until the commission is paid in full, unless otherwise agreed upon.DO NOT send money on your own; all standard payments are made through invoices. Any money sent outside of invoices will be considered a tip.Payment plans can be negotiated, but work will not continue past the value that has already been paid (ex: if you have paid enough to cover the sketch and lineart but the finished product will be colored, I will do the sketch and lineart but will not begin coloring until that portion has been paid).Tips are welcome but will not make your commission a higher priority.
Fees
Deadlines
I must be given a minimum of five days to work on sketches and two weeks for full color digital images before rush fees will be applied; the work time for traditional work will vary.The artist may apply rush fees at their discretion. The amount will vary case-by-case.Commissions with deadlines will be given priority over those without. Commissions with closer deadlines will be given priority over those with farther ones. Without deadlines, commissions will be worked on at the artist’s discretion. Revisions
Revisions that are made because of the artist’s error are free, provided the commissioner points it out immediately. Those made because of the commissioner’s error, a mutual misunderstanding, or lack of communication may be subject to additional fees at the artist’s discretion.Please condense revision requests into as few emails as possible, and take the time to double and triple check the work before asking for revisions. Revisions after the second email may require a fee. (Ex: send one email asking to change the expression, tail, and paws, not one email for each).Major revisions during the sketch stage may require a fee, the amount of which will vary case-by-case.Revisions to the pose, character shapes, expressions, etc cannot be made after the lines are inked. Character design
commissions may have up to two marking changes before they will be charged. Complex Characters & Backgrounds
Complex character designs and backgrounds warrant a fee that will vary based on complexity; the fee is set at the artist’s discretion.Things that constitute complex characters include but are not limited to: wings, excessive limbs, intricate markings or textures (tiger stripes, wood grain, etc), feathers, armor or complex clothing.
Additional materials
Applies mostly to traditional work; the price of canvases/paper, mediums I do not already own, colors not included in the sets I do own, and any other additional materials may be added to the total price. Shipping and Prints
Traditional works may be shipped to the client upon request. The fee will be the price of the shipping service, and if necessary, boxes, envelopes, bubblewrap, or any other shipping materials.Prints can be requested at any time for an additional fee.
Work Process
Inquiry: The artist and client discuss the style, content, and price of the commission. Neither artist nor client is bound to anything at this point.Payment & Filled Slot: The artist will send the client an invoice via Paypal (unless otherwise negotiated). Once the artist receives the payment, the client will be added to the queue and the commission slot filled. Payment plans can be discussed. Work will not begin until paid in full, unless otherwise agreed.Sketch: The artist will lay out the pose, fill the characters out, and apply details. The lines will be rough and unfinished.Though not always provided by default, the client may request a set of thumbnails to choose from before starting the sketch stage at no extra charge.Sketch approval: The artist will give a preview the sketch to the client. The client may request changes to the work that has been done (in which case steps 3 and 4 will repeat until the client is satisfied or the artist is unable to continue). Once the client gives their approval, work will continue. This is where the process for sketch commissions ends.Color: The artist applies washes of flat color without shading.Shading: The artist will apply lighting, shading, shadows, and highlights according to the style agreed upon during the inquiry. The client can request changes to the colors, markings, or lighting.Shading approval: The artist will give a preview of the completed piece to the client. The client may request changes to the lighting and shading (in which case steps 7 and 8 will repeat until the client is satisfied or the artist is unable to continue).Emailed files/shipped product: For digital work, the artist will email two versions of the finished product, one with a watermark and one without, to the client. For traditional work, in addition to the files, the finished product will be shipped to the address provided by the client, provided the client has paid for shipping or another arrangement has been agreed upon.
