Please make sure to check your emails/instant messages regularly.
All commission related communication must be kept impersonal and professional. I am not your therapist or agony aunt.

If it's not a way you would speak when buying something in a shop or talking to complete strangers, please do not use it with me.
This will ensure that nothing will be misunderstood in the process of your commission being completed.
Image Rights and Distribution
All rights to the finished works or any artwork created by me in the process of completing your commission are retained by the artist. You may not sell, redistribute, or reproduce these images in any way without prior permission.
I, as the artist and copyright holder for an image, are permitted to:
Post your art online anywhere I wish, without permission from you. EXCEPT in cases where it has been previously arranged to keep the commission private.
Make and Sell prints of work I have done for you, with permission from you.
Make and Sell collections of work, without permission from you.
Use work I have done for you in personal portfolios, without permission.
You, as the commissioner, are permitted to:
Post the finished commission to your FA or other websites, giving credit to me as the artist wherever possible, with a link to my FA profile/Twitter/website. The exception to this being the following sites: pinterest, we heart it, tumblr, e621, for these sites you must ask permission to post before doing so. If I refuse you may not post the work to these sites.
The high resolution version of the finished commission may be used for printing for your private collection only.
Use the commissioned work as an avatar/icon online, giving credit wherever possible via a link to my FA or website.
Use the commissioned work as a badge, credit card background, or other personal item.
Print the commissioned work for personal use.
You, as the commissioner (and anybody else) are not permitted to:
Use the work commercially in any way without prior permission. This includes selling prints, merchandise, books, CDs, ect, featuring the art.
Create a Non-Fungible Token (NFT) of the purchased artwork. Under no circumstances should my art be involved with any cryptocurrency.
A licensing fee may be required before you can use the art commercially. This can be obtained at the time of commissioning, or anytime thereafter.
Refunds MUST be discussed with me, privately, prior to one being given.
Refunds (full or partial) will only be given if:
The commissioner requests a full refund after 2 months of waiting for their commission to be started but it has not been started. (the exception being if there is a queue of 5 or more commissions in front of them in my work queue.)
The commissioner has not had any updates or communication regarding their commission after 2 months from payment. Full refund will be given.
The commissioner is genuinely unhappy with their commission (a partial refund will be given, or the work re-done) (specific reasons must be given)
I cannot start/complete the commission for whatever reason, whether it be personal problems, lack of skill, or a difficult commissioner to work with (a full refund will be given if I haven’t started, I will give a partial refund if I have started work.).
A partial, 50% refund will be given if, at any point, you cancel your commission from me if I have started work on it.
I have the right to cancel a commission and give a full or partial refund at any time for any reason. Full refunds will only be given in cases where the work has not been started. Otherwise a partial refund will be given depending on how far I’ve gotten with the image. The money I keep from a partial refund is to compensate for time I spent working on the commission.
Private Commissions & Livestreams
If you wish for your commission to remain private, and to not be posted online by me, please tell me so in the order form. Choosing this option will incur a private commission fee to compensate for potential lost sales as posting completed commissions is a large form of advertisement of my services.
This fee is non-negotiable.
If at any time I find that you have posted the work publicly yourself, I hereby retain the right to also post the work regardless of you having requested it be private. The privacy fee is non-refundable.
While I don't always livestream as I work, I may do so in some cases. If you do not want your commission livestreamed, please let me know.
If you would like your commission to be posted after a certain date, please tell me in the order form, I'm happy to accommodate these requests and they will not incur the private commission fee.
Any and all alterations to the work (with the exception of minor colour related changes) MUST be made at the sketch approval stage.
You will be sent the sketch for approval before more work is done, if you do not like what has been drawn at all, you're entitled to one complete redraw of the sketch from scratch. Please provide additional details of what you would prefer if the entire sketch is not to your liking.
Once linework has been started no changes to the pose or details may be requested. If you absolutely MUST have something changed at this stage you will be asked to pay an extra fee depending on the complexity of the alterations requested.
Minor colour related changes (such as changing the colour of a marking or tattoo) are usually able to be made after the commission has been completed. These are the only free changes allowed after the commission is complete.
If you notice something wrong with the commission more than a week after it's completion that only requires colour changes, I am happy to correct this for free. If it's a substantial change such as edits to the lineart or adding entire markings you will be asked for a fee depending on the complexity of the change you want.
I will not make alterations to commissions more than 6 months old.
I will not make alterations to work drawn by other people.
Breach of Contract
Any breaching of the terms herein will result in the cancellation of your commission and forfeits any right to a refund regardless of the completion level of your commission.
Unfinished commissions from clients who have breached the Terms of Service may be re-used in any way I see fit after character specific details have been removed.
Chargeback of funds via P/aypal constitutes a breach of contract.
