Commission Terms/Policies

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 24, 2015, 8:13 AM

Just wanted to write this up for future reference! Decided to set down some rules from now on to make my life easier =w=

  • Check if my commissions are open or not before asking me
  • Fill out the proper forms when sending me a note or commenting to request a commission
  • I WILL reject the commission if I am not confident I can pull it off or if I really do not wish to work with the request(due to motivation/procrastination and art block issues)
  • Only request a commission if you have the money on hand!
  • I will be asking for payment beforehand or after I send you a sketch/WIP(if requested) from now on!
    • I have usually accepted payment afterwards too, but I've experienced times when people totally forgot/never paid so I will be asking for payment before to ensure I do not do unnecessary work
  • You MAY ask for a refund but ONLY if I have not finished the entire piece
    • If I have not started at all, I will refund you 100% of the payment
    • If I have started sketching, I will refund you 50% of the payment
    • If I have finished the entire piece or nearly finished, I will not be able to refund you since I have put in effort and time that I cannot reverse, but I will finish and give you the finished piece
  • PLEASE DO NOT RUSH ME!!! If you need something by a specific date, MAKE SURE to let me know beforehand! However, I will not accept urgent requests such as something needed within a week or less unless I have the time and I will charge extra for rush fees(so if you know you want something by a certain date, let me know at least weeks before)
    • You CAN poke/note/nudge me with a reminder or ask for progress if I have not gotten to or made progress on your commission for over 2 weeks or a month; otherwise I will do my best to get to it before then but please do not ask me how I'm doing on your commission like a day or two after I accepted it lol
    • Remember that I most likely have others to finish in line before yours so it may take a little while to do
  • I only accept paypal or points! Paypal is preferred due to the long wait time required to transfer point earnings into cash
  • Do not pay the fees! The fees will be included in the commission prices to avoid confusion or getting in trouble from paypal lol
  • I WILL WORK ON PAID COMMISSIONS FIRST! So if you have not paid yet, I will skip your slot and work on paid ones first until you have paid or I have no others to do
  • You may use commissioned art for PERSONAL USE ONLY aka NO COMMERCIAL USE
    • that includes any use of the art that involves making a profit off of it
    • you MAY print it for personal use or create merchandise for yourself, but you may not sell them to others
    • do NOT upload the art as your own or on public art galleries such as dA(only on or or other file storing sites for personal access)
  • Please credit me for the art when possible or necessary!
    • you may trace for personal practice but you cannot upload the traced art nor claim it as your own work
    • absolutely no posting my art in public sites/spaces without permission! unless it is for your profile or w/ proper credit
  • You MAY add to the price of resells for your adopts if I have done art for them but ONLY if the adopt maker allows it and as long as it is not for more than you paid me for the art.

Well done laying out the guidelines for your commissions. Not many people do this, but I'm glad you're professional enough for it!
I Salute you, Chibi-master!

ahaha ty xDD idk I felt I was making more work/issues for myself by being too lenient with everything so i thought i'd write stuff down and make new rules so things are easier for everyone =w=

That's what you needed to do. Being to lenient, as you just said, can causealot of issues, especially if you are dealing with merchandise (in your case, commissions.)
