|Terms of Service|
This is REQUIRED for you to read through, understand and agree to before I even consider doing your commission for you.
By saying "I agree" with my commission ToS, you are agreeing to my terms regarding commissions, style, edits and shipping requirements. This ToS is subject to change!
Payments Accepted & Shipping Requirements
PayPal ONLY! I will not accept Money Gram, Checks, Cash, Western Union or other forms of payment besides Paypal UNLESS you are local to my area!
My PayPal is firstname.lastname@example.org
Price quotes include shipping to the Continental US ONLY!
I will ONLY ship to the continental US!
If you wish to still commission me and you live anywhere outside of the Continental US YOU will be in charge of arranging for the shipping but be aware that I will not fold the image, mail it in a paper towel tube (I've been asked to do this..) or skimp on my regular packaging in anyway. I want my art to actually look good once it gets to you. If you know you will want to be cheap on the shipping then do not commission me.
Commissions•When you ask me for a commission, please make sure you actually have the funds available for the commission. Please include in your commission request your mailing address, details on what you are wanting, Images of the species to be draw or a very detailed description AND color chart of for the character you are wishing to have drawn. I will look your request over and give you a quote based off of this information. I need this information to give you a proper quote so please do not lie about your location.
•90% of the time I have no issue color matching the colors needed with markers but every once in a blue moon I will get a questionable color, pattern or combination that I simply can not replicate with the supplies I have. When this happens I have a few options that I will consider. If the commissioner has no problem with it I am able to finish a traditionally stated commission digitally. That means that the only tangible finished product will be a print of the digital image. If this occurs and the commissioner is ok with it, then I will finish the commission digitally and provide them a price discount for the commission and print.
•Once I accept your commission request and the quote given to you is accepted I will begin on the initial sketch. Once I finish the initial sketch I will send the WIP to you for approval and/or editing. If the sketch is done to your liking, you are required to send the full payment.
•I will not continue working on the commission until payment is received! Once full payment is received I will continue to ink and color the image, provide you with updates and ask your opinion on certain features depending on the subject at hand.
•If edits are needed for the initial sketch please be very clear on what you want changing!! I can’t stress this enough! Telling me that “the head looks funny” but not telling me funny, how? Does not help me fix the problem. Once the inking is done I am not able the change the lineart so be sure to tell me BEFORE I ink!
•If you are commissioning custom characters such as MLP/Plant Ponies, Adoptables or YCH (Your Character Here) designs you are required to pay the full price upfront! You may pay with either Paypal OR DeviantArt points! These are about the only things I will offer with a secondary payment method!
•The limit of commissions will be at a maximum of one request per customer at a time. Do not ask me to do 4-5 pieces at one time. I am not a machine, I am human and I cannot take all of that on, no matter how much I am being paid. You’ll be rejected immediately. I will only accept multiple commissions from people that I have done business with before and trust!
•If you want me to draw your character, you MUST have a clear COLORED picture of YOUR character.
If I receive an uncolored, pixelated and grainy image I will not accept it because:
1. It’s hard as hell to see
2. It may be stolen
3. I am slightly colorblind....
•All of my work will have my visible signature on it along with one or more hidden signatures along the artwork. Asking me to do a commission for you without a signature will result in a request denied. I will also turn down commissions based off certain details as subject matter, over detailing, backgrounds ETC.
•I will not do a commission for someone who begs me to accept their commission when I am uncomfortable with the subject matter!!
•If I create a custom character for you, please be aware of the following:
-It is your character but should you ever sell, trade, give away or retire it please let me know to whom you have given it to so that I may update the characters description in my archive
-Do not use for hateful, sexist, racist, or vile imagery/speech. ( I do make historical cartoons involving the confederacy and the Union so do keep that in mind, I do not make art to promote hate. I appreciate the historical approach)
-Do not use my art in any way that brings a bad name on my art, and the character I have created. If I have discovered you’ve violated the agreement, I will permanently cease any and all future arrangements for services.
•I reserve the right to use any image that I have done for commission in my personal portfolio.
•I reserve the right to sell prints of any image I have done unless requested not to by the commissioner.
•I reserve the right to make personal prints of any commission for my personal studio.
•I reserve the right to deny a customer if I do not feel comfortable with their commission request for any reason!
•Please understand that I do have a full time job* and a family. I do not just sit on my butt and make art 24/7. Art takes time to create and I do not want to give you a rushed piece of art. So please be patient with me if I do not finish a image in a day/week.
*During ginning season (Early September through Late December/Early January) I will NOT be able to work on any commission. I will not accept commissions after the 15th of June so that I will have time to prepare my co-workers for the c=ginning season and get my OSHA paperwork finished.
If you owe me money from past commissions, and it is an ongoing problem to where you still have not paid me that money, I will remember your name and never do a single commission for you again unless that amount is paid to me! If communications are ignored and payment is not received I reserve the right to sell any and all art pertaining to the commission in question!
This sadly happens...
If you have engaged in an art trade with me, I have finished my end of the trade and it has been over a certain amount of months since I have received an update I reserve the right to alter/edit and or destroy the artwork I originally did. I will not sell the art if it is of a character that is owned by the person in question but I will sell it if it is something generic that the trade maker has no real rights to such as animals (not pets)
I will not bite you
Do not be afraid to ask me questions!
That's how we learn
Opinions are like assholes
We all have one and no one really wants to see them. Be respectful, just because you may not like a images subject matter doesn't mean anyone cares to hear it.
Manners, manners, manners
I'm typically a nice person, just rather blunt.
You be nice to me, I be nice to you.
You don't say?
Just because another artist can do what I do cheaper than I can doesn't mean you can smear it in my face that you're going to go to them instead
