Commission Terms of Service

General Terms
  • Prices are subject to change based off demand.​

  • I reserve the right to reject a commission request for any reason.

  • Payment must be made through PayPal.

  • I require half payment up front to start work on the commission.

  • The final payment must be made before I provide access to the completed files.

  • Don't make any payments before I've sent a PayPal invoice to you.

  • You must provide references for the commission unless I agree otherwise.

  • If you provides no references, you agree to grant me full creative freedom.  Revisions still apply as described below.

  • Upon receiving the down payment and references, I will begin work on the concept phase.  I will create up to 5 concept sketches for you.  Once you approve a concept, I will start work on the final image.

  • The timeline to completion can vary anywhere between 1 week - 3 months based off factors such as the commission details or my work schedule.​

  • You will have the opportunity to critique or request changes to the commission at each stage of the creation process - Concept, Ink, Grey, and Color as applicable.

  • Once a stage is approved, any change to that stage later will call for an extra charge, decided based off the complexity and time involved.

  • After final payment is received, the Artist will send a link to a Google Drive folder containing the hi-res, flattened artwork in the following file formats:

    • .png​, .jpg, .tiff, and .pdf

  • There will also be a "Print" folder containing the image files with bleed and crop marks.

  • The Google Drive folder will be active for one year, after which the folder and files will be deleted.  Be sure to back up the files before then.

Copyright & Usage

I, the artist:​​

  • ​Retain all copyrights over the commissioned artwork.​

  • Reserve the right to post the commissioned artwork and any part of its creation process online, in my portfolio, and in publications such as artbooks.

  • Will NOT claim the Intellectual Property (IP) of the commissioned artwork.

You, the client:

  • May upload the commissioned artwork on any website and social channels.​

  • May NOT make profits off the commissioned piece.

  • May NOT alter the commissioned piece without my consent.

  • May NOT use the commissioned artwork for commercial purposes.

  • Retain the rights to the intellectual property (IP).

  • May NOT claim the artwork as your own work.

Other conditions:

  • If you break the copyright arrangement and profit off the commissioned artwork, I have the right to claim up to 10% in royalties.

  • If you wish to use the artwork for commercial purposes, contact me about purchasing a license.

Cancellations & Refunds
  • Both parties have the right to cancel a commission at any time.

  • If cancelled before work is started, a full refund will be issued.

  • Once the concept phase has been started, only half of the down payment will be refunded upon cancellation.

  • After the artist starts on the final image, no refund will be issued unless the artist has to cancel, in which case 25% of the down payment will be refunded.​

  • If you are getting a refund, do not request a PayPal chargeback.  I will transfer the money back to you myself.

  • If you request a PayPal chargeback when refunds are not allowed, you will lose all rights to the commissioned artwork and I will gain the right to profit from it in any way.  The chargeback will be denied and I will supply our correspondence to PayPal as proof that I have completed work for you.  Further, you will be blacklisted from commissioning me again.
