I'm once again open for commissions so that I can better support myself, my partner, and our pets! They will be open indefinitely until further notice.
If you would like to inquire my business, check out the new TOS and send me an e-mail with the template included!
Any signal boosts would be appreciated~ Sankyuu!
Happy Pride Month! Do crimes, be gay.
Hey y'all, it's been a while!
I went on another hiatus and was dealing with some personal stuff, but I've come back with a new name for the new year. To be honest, I wasn't sure about coming back to dA, but this has been my shitty little hovel of a home for ages, so here we are again!
It was a difficult transition, but I feel really good about letting go of my previous handle, as it had too much trauma and bad memories tied with it. I'm one step forward in healing!
I'm in the process of making changes for other platforms, and I'll be sorting my Gallery out here and clean-slating. So expect changes!
The following information should provide answers to common questions. If something is unclear, feel free to contact me with any questions or any clarification needed.
♡ Full payment upfront via PayPal Invoice ($USD); I will not start your commission until I have received payment. Commissions over $300 are eligible for a payment plan of "Half Now, Half Later".
♡ Payment must be paid within 24 hours of the invoice being sent. If payment cannot be made within the timeframe, your slot will be forfeited for the current queue.
♡ Commissions are not accepted on a first come, first serve basis, and will be chosen based on personal interest.
♡ I reserve the right to deny any commission I feel uncomfortable or unqualified to draw, or I'm just not feeling for. I am not obligated to give an explanation.
♡ I reserve the right to cancel or refuse a commission at any time for any reason, which may include, but is not limited to, poor communication, rude or inappropriate behavior, unforeseen violation of the TOS, or inability to communicate in effective English. Clients will be notified ahead of time in case of cancellation.
♡ While I am able to mimic the look of a series in most cases, I would much rather do work in my own style. Doing a commission in the style of a series may incur additional fees at my discretion.
♡ I do not work with a deadline. My usual my turnaround for a commission is 1-3 months. Personal life conditions may affect the turnaround speed and I will inform clients if I'm experiencing personal difficulties that may hinder progress.
♡ I work on personal pieces between commissions to de-stress and avoid burnout, which can effect the quality of my work.
♡ A max of 2 prompts can be commissioned by a single client at one time.
♡ Please be sure that your prompt is clear and concise. A prompt should include details such as pose(s) for the character(s), expression, mood, or theme. While I do enjoy the comfort of artistic freedom, I prefer to have something to work with.
♡ An ideal prompt description should be no more than a few sentences, or a max of 200 words if you need to clarify details. Please do not send me your character's life story, it's not an easy format to work with.
♡ Clear visual reference(s) and a short description for a commission prompt must be provided. I do not take commissions based on solely text descriptions.
♡ Image galleries that provide a basic reference for a character's species, body type, important features, colors, and clothing, etc. are acceptable.
♡ Once payment has been made, the client is not permitted to change the prompt, idea, or character(s) for the commission. If you have multiple ideas to choose from, feel free to discuss them with me, but otherwise, please be sure of what you'd like before inquiring my services.
♡ If you are interested in my services, please send me an e-mail with the following template:

♡ My work process is done in stages, and each stage is sent as a WIP for client overview and approval. I encourage you to take your time looking over the provided WIP and decide what, if anything, you would like altered between each stage. Please be mindful that any large or frequent changes after the sketch stage may incur an additional fee as necessary.

♡ As the artist, I retain the copyright to the art and reserve the right to display all commissioned work on any personal website, gallery, or blog to promote my freelance services.
♡ The client retains all rights to their respective character(s), but may not profit from the artwork. This includes the sale of digital files, or rights to the image. The client may inquire for the licensing of art via a flat fee agreement to define the terms in which the art will be used, and the territory of use.
