Commission Details and Pricing Buy My Prints Please

Dollar (US) All prices are in US dollars.
New PayPal Icon (Small) All payments must be made via PayPal, however you do not need to have a PayPal account to do so.
Note Prices may vary on a case-by-case basis. Please request a quote to get the exact price for your specific project.

  • Vectors (will provide both image and vector source files)

    • Simple (e.g. icon, pony cutie mark) - $15

      • Reference image/sketch must be provided

    • Moderate (e.g. single character) - ranging from $25 to $35

      • Reference image/sketch must be provided
      • Exact pricing will be determined on a case-by-case basis according to the complexity of the image
      • Examples
        CJHamster (vector commission) by love-mist  Bare Hoof Kick (vector commission) by love-mist

  • 3D Models for the Source Engine (i.e. Garry's Mod & Source Filmmaker)

    • Custom Props and More - starting at $15

      • Exact pricing will be determined on a case-by-case basis according to the complexity of the model
      • Anything overly complex may cost more or be refused

    • Custom Pony Accessories & Skins - ranging from $15 to $25+

      • Can be requested on their own or in addition to a pony character model (see Custom Pony OCs below)
      • Jiggle bones can be included if desired
      • Exact pricing will be determined on a case-by-case basis according to the complexity of the model
      • Anything overly complex may cost more or be refused
      • Examples
        MLP OC - Dusk Glow (model commission) by love-mist  MLP OC - Emosha Nell (model commission) by love-mist  [DL] LE Stud Earrings by love-mist

    • Custom Pony OCs - ranging from $25 to $45+

      • Basic model, provide your own cutie mark - $25

        • A "basic" model is one that can be pieced together from existing model components. If you can put your pony together with the PonyLumen 3D Pony Creator, your model will likely fall into this category (though this cannot be guaranteed with all their fancy updates!). If you have mix-and-match mane front and back pieces, that's fine! If pieces don't quite work together (e.g. there's a gap between them / they're clipping into each other) don't worry! This price covers any minor modeling required to fix those little issues.
        • For this option, you also must provide your own cutie mark. This must be a high resolution image (720 pixels or more) with a transparent background.
        • Examples
          MLP OC - Sky Lens (model commission) by love-mist  MLP OC - Hollyfern (model request) by love-mist

      • Basic model, cutie mark vector by me - $30

        • This option is the same as above, except that I will vectorize a show-style cutie mark for you. The mark will be used on your model AND given to you as its own image and vector file package.
        • You are expected to give a suitable reference image off of which to create your cutie mark.

      • EXTRA

        • Custom mane/tail - +$10 each

          • For this extra fee, you can get a mane and/or tail of your own design modeled by me from scratch.
          • Jiggle bones are included
          • Anything overly complex may cost more or be refused
          • Examples
            MLP OC - Sunflare (gift model) by love-mist  - Introducing: Dixie Thorn - (gift model/pic) by love-mist  MLP OC - Lookalike (model request) by love-mist

        • Accessories & Skins - +$0 to $20 each

          • Existing Source pony accessories can be included with your model free of charge
          • Please see the "Custom Pony Accessories & Skins" information above

How to Request :writer:

  • First, make sure that commissions are open and that there is a slot available for the type of commission you're requesting.
    (Just check the Status section at the top! I always keep it updated.)
  • Send me a note with the specifics! Put something about "Commissions" in the subject line. I will get back to you with a price quote and requests for anything else I need from you (references, option selections, etc).
  • Please note: your slot is NOT necessarily guaranteed at this point. If you take a long time getting back to me, I may need to move forward with other customers. So keep an eye on your messages!
  • Once the final terms and pricing are confirmed, you must provide an email address to which I will send the PayPal invoice and the files for the completed piece(s). (I prefer to email the files so I don't have to worry about how long I have to host them somewhere.)
  • Payment must be received via PayPal within 72 HOURS after the invoice is sent, BEFORE any work begins, or your slot may be given to the next customer. (Remember, you don't need a PayPal account! The way I do it, it works like any other online purchase.)
  • CHECK YOUR MESSAGES OFTEN! I will likely be sending you periodic updates, screenshot previews, and feedback requests. Many types of changes are easier to do at certain stages, so I like to get the work in progress approved before moving on to the next steps. If you take too long to respond, I may continue without you, and you may not get to give the direction you'd like. The sooner you get back to me, the sooner I can keep working, and the sooner you'll get your finished piece!

Additional Terms and Conditions 

(Also known as covering my butt.)

  • Turnaround Time

    • Unfortunately, I can't make any promises about how long any of my pieces may take. It is dependent on a lot of factors, including those out of my control. I will, however, do my best to keep you updated on where things are at.
    • If you are ever concerned about the status of your commission, please message me! I check and respond to messages regularly, and I aim for transparency during this process. I'll tell you what's up.
  • Payments and Refunds
    • Keep in mind the 72 hour payment window noted in the steps above.
    • If I need to cancel your order for reasons not pertaining to you, you will receive a full refund.
    • If you decide to cancel your order for any reason after you have already paid, you will not receive a refund.
    • I reserve the right to cancel your order at any time without a refund for reasons including but not limited to excessive change requests, excessive rudeness, or other harassment. (I really, really hope I never have to do this!)

  • Rights to the Finished Piece

    • I reserve the right to post and display (or choose not to display) the piece I have made for you.
      Of course, if you have something in mind where you would like to keep the piece private until a later date (e.g. a model for an animation that you don't want to spoil beforehand), I am open to requests to do so!
    • I reserve the right to potentially reuse portions of my own work in future pieces. (Because reinventing the wheel is silly.)
    • The "full product" (i.e. full resolution images, vector files, model downloads, etc.) is reserved for myself and the commissioner (you) for personal use unless otherwise stated or requested.
    • If you "re-post" the pieces I make for you, full product, preview or otherwise, I ask that you please credit me and link back to my profile and/or my submission of the piece.
    • Please do not sell any form of the pieces I make for you.
    • Regarding the use of resource/source type pieces (e.g. vectors, models, stuff that I would expect you to constantly reuse):
      • You are not required to credit me for them every time you use them in your work. (It would be nice, but I realize how tedious that could be.)
      • You are free to share them with other artists, including others you commission who may request that you provide such resources.
      • If you wish to provide a public download of these resources, I will gladly host it. If you prefer to host it yourself, please credit me and link back to my profile and/or my submission of the piece.
      • You can sell works that utilize these resources in them (e.g. prints of a scene using a model, prints of a pony with a cutie mark vector) but not derivative works of the same nature (e.g. decompiled/modified models, reworked vectors).

If you have any questions, comments, concerns, etc. regarding any of the above, feel free to ask me! I'll be happy to discuss it with you.
