full terms of service
The commission is finalized upon payment. By sending the payment, the commissioner agrees to the terms of service below.
i. Commission request
Commission requests MUST be in the format provided on the option page. You may choose to add extra information before or after the form, so long as the proper format is used. If you do not have an account on DeviantArt, or would prefer to send the form to me via email, you may send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. I reserve the right to decline a commission request for any reason.
All commissions must be paid in full upfront. Payment is transferred via Paypal, unless specified on the option page that I accept payment in DeviantArt points. The prices specified are in USD. If unable to pay in USD, arrangements can be made for you to pay the equivalent in another currency.
If you would like your commission to be sent to you by a specific date, you must specify it in your note/email to me BEFORE sending payment. I may or may not accept the deadline depending on my availability. In case of an illness, accident, unexpected trip, or any other personal situation that would significantly slow or halt my progress, I will contact the commissioners and provide them with an estimated deadline.
Once I have completed the commissioned piece, I will note you with a link to the file in my DeviantArt Sta.sh. You may request to be notified via email instead. The final commission piece will be delivered to you in PNG format unless you request it in a different format.
v. changes to finished piece
Once I have sent you the finished commission, you may ask for small changes, such as color changes in specific areas, minor alterations to the lineart, resizing of the image, or the inclusion of any small details I may have left out or simplified. If you would like to request major changes, such as full outfit change or background change, there will be a fee. If you wish to have the entire commission redrawn, you must pay the full price of the commission again.
As the artist, I may choose to display your commission on this site as an example, on any other site as an advertisement/example of my work, or in a digital portfolio. As the commissioner, you retain the right to any and all of your intellectual property used in the commission, such as your character designs. You also have the right to use the commissioned piece for any personal use. You do NOT have the right to claim the artwork as your own(as is or altered), nor to make profit from it in any way.
vii. canceling and refunding
If the payment has not yet been sent, you, as the commissioner, have the right to cancel the commission. If the payment has been sent, you do not have the right to cancel or demand a refund under any circumstances. I reserve the right to cancel your commission and refund the money for your commission at any time.
