PRIVATE COMMISSIONS POLICIES AND CONDITIONS



PROCESS

Inquiry. Please email me with a general description of what you want painted (number of characters, full body/waist up/portrait, complex/simple background, etc.).


Acceptance. I reserve the right to refuse any commission without explanation. If I choose to accept your commission, I will give you an estimate based on my current price list.


Description. If I choose to accept the commission, please email me with full details of the piece, including any relevant reference you might have. Please note that complex designs (intricate jewelry/tattoos covering large parts of the character's body, complicated fullbody armor, etc) may raise the final price.


Once I gained sufficient understanding of your idea, I will send you an invoice for the full sum and a contract to sign. The invoice must be paid upfront.


Sketch. I will draw 2-4 rough black and white sketches and send them to you for approval. All changes and adjustments to the composition, poses, facial expressions, etc. must be made during this stage of the process.


At this stage, I will accept one round of revision requests. Any additional changes will incur additional revision fees (10% of the full sum for every revision round). Please don't ask for changes that mean a complete reworking of the sketch or go against your previous descriptions/requests (i.e. you changed your mind).


Colors. I will color the accepted sketch and send it to you for a second approval. All changes and adjustments to the color scheme, mood, atmosphere, etc. must be made during this stage of the process. Please note that I reserve the right to make my own adjustments to the color scheme during the entirety of the painting process. These will only be made to improve upon the picture (and achieve the intended mood, if you specified such).


At this stage, I will accept one round of revision requests. Any additional changes will incur additional revision fees (10% of the full sum for every revision round).


Painting. Once the sketch and the colors have been approved, I will begin rendering the illustration. I will send you weekly updates to keep you informed on the progress.


At this stage, I will accept one minor change. Minor changes include small details on a small portion of the image. Any additional revisions will incur further charges that must be paid upfront (10% of the full sum for every change).


Please note that changes to the composition and color scheme are impossible at this stage.



PAYMENT


All payments must be sent via PayPal. If you commission has been accepted, I will send you an invoice for the full sum that must be paid before I start working on the sketch. For any additional charges, additional invoices will be sent.
