Terms of Service for Private Commissions


Prices are subject to change based on demand. I have the right to reject any order for any reason.

Currency accepted is USD or other currencies and can be paid through PayPal. Commissions can be paid either 100% upfront or with at least a 50% down payment before project approval. Don't send me any payment before I have agreed to give you a slot and requested you to send me the payment.

The time it takes to finish your commission varies 1 week - 3 months depending on factors such as health, the complexity of the commissioned piece, other work, and show seasons. Once the piece is finished you will receive the physical product within the determined shipping or local pickup time.

You get 3 rounds of changes on the commissioned piece included in the price. A fee will be added if you want something changed on the final commission - unless a misunderstanding from my side has been made. If you wish for me to change something in the drawing you have previously approved, I will charge you a fee to change it. The amount of the extra charge depends on the change you want me to make and is usually based on an hourly wage. If your reference is unclear to start with changes will come at an extra charge.

I will NOT claim the intellectual property (IP) of the commissioned artwork. I will NOT profit further from the commissioned artwork unless you (the customer) break any of the terms.

The buyer is not allowed a refund once I started working on the commission. If for any reason I am unable to start your commission you will receive a full refund. If you cancel your order before I started it, you can get a full refund. If you are getting a refund, do not request a PayPal charge back. I will transfer the money back to you myself. If you request a PayPal charge back at any point when you were not allowed to ask for a refund you will lose all before-mentioned rights to the commissioned piece and I will have the full right to profit further from it in any way. I will decline the charge back and supply PayPal with our conversations in which we talk about the commission as evidence that I have completed work for you. Furthermore, you will be blacklisted for commissioning me again.
