Commission status: Closed


Are you looking to commission artwork that ranges from cute animals to badass fantasy creatures? From super adorable animated pixel journal dolls to awesome fully coloured and shaded anthro art at a fair price you can't knock? If so, I'm your artist! This journal is SnakeBite studios' central commission info hub, you can it linked across the various different websites that I have joined and offer commissions on!



Just a quick heads up, I've had to switch to posting examples of my work as links in the pricing and examples section of this journal since the Eclipse redesign has messed up thumbnail embedding in old, pre-eclipse journal entries.



If you don't have paypal or are not a resident of the UK, don't fret! DA point commissions are also available at the link below.






HOW TO COMMISSION ME:
Fill in the form provided below and send it to me in a NOTE or PM (depending on what site you're contacting me on), please do not post it as a comment on my profile. Notes/PMs are easier for me to keep track of and don't get lost in my inbox. This order form acts as a written contract/agreement so if you don't fill it out correctly or don't use it at all, your request will be declined.

When filling the form in, please do not remove anything written in bold text, thank you.

USER NAME:
(Your username)

COMMISSION TYPE:
(Choose one of the available options for your commission)

CHARACTER REFERENCES:
(Links to character reference images. Visual reference is a MUST and needs to be clear, easy to understand and as accurate to the character's design as possible. If certain aspects of design in the reference are not correct for some reason, please tell me before I start)

COMMISSION DESCRIPTION:
(Description of what you want drawn. Vague descriptions will be open to interpretation, so unless you're ok with me running with my own idea and direction based on the given info, you need to give me the important key details so I can provide you with what you're looking for, and please keep it short and to the point. You will also need to provide reference images for desired poses and other important features)

AMOUNT TO PAY:
(How much the commission will cost you. Base price plus the additional cost of any extra characters, animation frames etc. This will be edited to add on any additional charges for corrections, redraws, rush fees etc. later if there are any)

CONFIRMATION:
(Leave blank. This is for me to say whether or not I can do the commission. I will send your form back with this filled in)





PERSONAL COMMISSIONS TOU/TOS:
By commissioning me, you (the client) affirm to have read and agree to be legally bound by the following Terms of Service listed below. Failure to abide by the Terms of Service may result in a rejected/ cancelled commission with or without a refund, and/ or a blacklist/ public service announcement. Please note that these Terms of Service may be subject to change without prior notice.

Please note that as the artist, I retain all rights to the art I'm paid to draw regardless of the subject matter and characters featured, and I can use the work in any way I see fit. This may include uploading to social media/other art gallery sites I use as promotion of my services or selling altered versions as prints, stickers etc. in the future.



Bullet; Green Credit MUST be given in all circumstances where my art is used

Bullet; Green The client may use the artwork for private, personal things eg. to print out and hang on their wall, use as a desktop wallpapers etc.

Bullet; Green Line arts may only be coloured by the client it was made for.

:bulletred: Art created for personal/private use is not be reproduced or used for commercial purposes by the client in any way, eg. selling as prints and other merchandise.

Bullet; Red Do not claim my work as your own.

Bullet; Red Do not remove my signature or watermarks/copyright etc. or alter or edit my work in any way except for resizing.

Bullet; Red Do not repost/redistribute my work anywhere without my permission. You are paying for my time and materials, not the rights to the art. I reserve the right to file a report for copyright infringement if my work is uploaded without permission and proper credit.

Bullet; Red If I give you permission to upload to your gallery/social network profile/elsewhere, please use the smaller resolution version with my watermark on, provide a link to the original displayed in my gallery in your submission description and disable comments if possible.







ART FOR COMMERCIAL USE
The prices you see listed in this journal only apply to personal/private commissions. Art made for commercial purposes will be priced based on minimum wage per hour for my area instead of a set flat rate.

If you wish to commission me for artwork intended to be sold on merchandise or other commercial uses, please discuss the project with me before hand and I will give you an estimate of how much the project is likely to cost, and write up a contract and licensing agreement for the project if you wish to go through with the commission.

Please note that as the artist, I retain all rights to the art I'm paid to draw regardless of the subject matter, characters featured or purpose in which the piece was created, and I can use the work in any way I see fit. This may include uploading to social media/other art gallery sites I use as promotion of my services or selling altered versions as prints, stickers etc. in the future.






PAYMENT:
I accept payments through paypal, or if you are a UK resident that doesn't use paypal for whatever reason, I can also accept cash/cheque payments in the post though it is not really ideal.

Before you order anything, please make sure you have enough funds available to cover the price of your commission and any additional fees for corrections etc. that may crop up. If you need time to save enough money so you can afford a commission, please hold off on ordering anything until you have enough.


Paypal payments
- I take 50% up front and the remaining amount plus any extra charges for corrections etc. after I've finished and uploaded a watermarked version of the art to my gallery.

- The remaining payment must be sent within 7 days after completion. If I don't receive the rest of the payment within that timeframe, I will sell an altered version of the piece as prints or digital downloads through DA's premium content platform as compensation.

-Please wait until I've agreed to do your commission before sending payment.

- When sending payment, please use the goods and services option if available




Cash/cheque payments
- Unfortunately due to the limitations of this method, I can only accept full payment upfront

- Again, like with the paypal option, Please wait until I've agreed to do your commission before sending payment. Any payments sent before you have received confirmation will take longer to refund back to you due to postal delivery times if I don't accept the project.

- Please make sure that cash is concealed and loose coins are taped down inside something like a greetings card before posting it as a safety precaution

- Please include a note of your username somewhere so I know exactly who the payment is from, so I can give confirmation that I've gotten it.





CANCELLATION AND REFUNDS

As the artist, I have the right to cancel and refund a commission at any point in time for any reason.


Refunds
Bullet; Green If something happens that prevents me from starting your commission, or you decide to cancel before I begin working, you will get your payment back in full.

Bullet; Green If I have started working on your commission but can't finish it, or you change your mind and want to cancel part way through the process, you will get a partial refund. How much you get back will depend on how much work I've already done. You will also receive the PNG file of the unfinished commission along with your refund should you want it. Please keep in mind that I might recycle parts of cancelled commission projects into new pieces later on if you ever plan to take the incomplete commission to another artist to be finished.


Bullet; Red There will be absolutely NO refunds when the piece is completed. Should you try to file an unauthorized chargeback after your commission has been finished, you will not recieve the full sized, unmarked version of the piece and will lose any and all permissions to it since it would then count as unpaid. You will also be permanently blacklisted from commissioning me again, and an altered version of the artwork will be sold as prints or digital download as compensation.








WIPS AND REVISIONS
I will upload a sketch for you to review and point out any changes you want made.

- The first review and minor corrections is free, but any more changes requested after the first free one will have a small charge of £5.

- There won't be any more changes made to the composition, poses or designs after I start the line art. Make sure you point out all the changes you want made during the sketch stage.

- Only small, simple changes like correcting colouring mistakes can be done after the piece is finished.

- There will be extra charges if a redraw is requested. The cost will depend on how much you want redone.

- You're welcome to request progress shots throughout the process if you want them, but please don't demand one every day.






TIME
- Turnaround time should be within 2 weeks, however there's a possibility it may take longer due to other factors such as health and family related things. You'll be notified if problems that prevent me from getting your commission done in a timely manner pop up.

- If you have a deadline you need the art by, please discuss it with me beforehand. Additional rush fees may be charged, but I can't guarantee that the art will be up to my usual standard if I have to hurry to meet your deadline.

- I won't accept commissions with very tight deadlines such as things that need to be completed by the next day.





DELIVERY
All commissions are digital works. I do not have the means to print and ship a physical copy of the art to you, but you can print it yourself once you receive the full sized, unmarked PNG of your commission if you want.

When the piece is completed, I will upload a watermarked version to my public gallery. Once I have received the full payments for the work, I will upload the full sized, unmarked version to my stash and send you a link to it through note/private message. You don't need a DA account to view private sta.sh pages, as long as you have a link to the page, you can access it to save your finished commission file to your computer.

If you are sending payment through paypal, please note that the full sized, unmarked version of the piece will not be released until paypal's chargeback/dispute grace period has passed for the sake of preventing unauthorized chargeback scams.


I don't give out the original mdp (FireAlpaca's native format) files of my work, I keep those private in case I have to deal with art theft or copyright infringement and need to prove I'm the original artist.

STYLE OF ART
- All artwork will be done in my own style(s). I will not try to mimic another artist's particular drawing style.

- My style may change depending on what I'm drawing and if I am working from a reference or not.






SLOTS
I'm only taking one slot at a time. If the slot has already been claimed, you'll have to wait for it to be reopened again if you wish to order something. I do not do reserves on commission slots, it's first come, first served.






PRICES AND EXAMPLES:
These prices are based on the amount of time it takes to complete the drawing.

There's a maximum of 2 characters per drawing for the base price, any additional characters will cost extra. Coloured pieces with no background will be transparent, and sketches/linearts will have white backgrounds by default. You can request a single colour background of your choice instead of the default transparent or white one if you prefer at no additional charge.

Examples will be updated when I create new pieces. The art posted here as examples may contain subject matters that I don't actively draw and won't do for commissions.
