Commissions

Info [do not use!]
Any of my commission/YCH options or adopts can be paid via their point equivalent (I round to the $1=100pt conversion)

If paying via points, please wait for me to set up a widget with your name & amount on it, thanks!
Tip Jar
For those who would like to tip, but can't afford an extra $3 for a ko-fi donation (or for those who are only able to tip in points)

Please do not feel obligated to tip!  But, if you want to, it is of course immensely appreciated  <3

((Feel free to click the thumbnails & show some love to these sweet artists!))
Going back to a journal format since it's easier to edit & I still have a few more things I want to add/change when ready.  ((I'll turn notifications on & describe any updates that are more important--like price changes or options being added/removed))

Alternatively, there is my Trello ((which also has a public order queue you can look at--please check there to see when things are due as i find it much easier to organize/update than having a list here on dA))
((btw, in case the watermarks aren't clear, all bases used for customs/YCHs are my own.))

((This journal is just for my various commission options & their specific ToS--for broad ToS that apply to my services in general, read here:  Terms of Service

IMPORTANT INFO / TERMS OF SERVICE
CONTACT
best ways to contact me about commissions:
dA notessrsaraco@gmail.comcontacting on any of my social media accounts is fine too (Shalmons on most platforms, ShalmonsArt on Twitter/Facebook, ShalmonsDraws on Tumblr)if it takes me several days to respond & i seem to otherwise be active, try messaging on a different platform--i feel like i've encountered delivery problems on all of them, so it's entirely possible the message got lost 
PAYMENT INFO
Payment required first. Paypal and deviantArt point equivalents accepted.  (($1=100pt conversion))
If using paypal, you must either be of legal age or have permission from a parent/guardian to use their account!  I can't always tell how old people are, so please be courteous about this.  Illegal paypal use can cause a lot of trouble for

I try to cover as much info as possible both here & in my main ToS, but please feel free to ask any questions!  <3 ))

    • Other ToS:
      • non-humans only (since i've never really seen human heraldry art & am not sure how it should look?)--non-bipedal characters would probably work best, but bipedal anthros can probably be worked into a rampant or similar pose
      • willing to try any of the poses listed in this heraldic attitudes guide--just mention which one you'd like in your order form 
      • paper texture can be added upon request for no additional charge--tbh, i don't really like how it looks, but i haven't figured out a good alternative yet  :'v

    • grayscale (default) Inkwash by Shalmons

    • ((sorry i don't have a non-fanart example at the moment--reminder that i don't actually do fanart commissions due to legal worries  :'c ))
  • Other ToS:

      • Due to the lack of strong lineart boundaries in this style, the transparent version will keep any background accent shapes

3D LOW-POLY

[G] bushelofbees by Shalmons
**Ten $20 "Practice Discount" Slots are currently available!  I am relatively new to the Blender/low-poly workflow & am willing to undersell these a bit until I have a little more experience ((you can still expect the quality shown in the example above--hopefully improved as i go along))
  • I'll go ahead & make them fullbodies by default.  
  • Any species!  
  • They won't be rigged (need a little more practice with that), although I may go back & rig them later for practice.  
  • Prices will go back up once these are filled (Bust $30, Fullbody $50), but I'll make some exceptions if more are ordered very soon after the 10th slot fills.  
  • I will allow multiple purchases per slot, if you'd like to take advantage of the low price (they just have to be ordered at the same time).
  1. -claimed-
  2. -claimed-
  3. -claimed-
  4. -claimed-
  5. -claimed-
  6. -claimed-




  • OFF-BASE
    • Bust $30/3000pts
    • Fullbody  $50/5000pts
  • Other ToS:
    • If possible, it would be ideal to provide a front & back reference for fullbody model commissions.  If you don't have thorough visual references, you may either describe missing details in text/doodles or allow me to improvise.
    • You will receive the finished turnaround gifs along with source files for blender (which is a free program).
    • you are allowed to attempt 3-D printing on your own time & resources, but i can't guarantee it will work & cannot troubleshoot it for you. 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CUSTOMS ((ON-BASE))

  • Available species:
    • humanoid/anthro Humanoidlines by Shalmons
    • canine Caninelines by Shalmons
    • feline Pcat by Shalmons
    • equine Horsebase by Shalmons
    • cervine Cervinelines by Shalmons
    • dragon Dragonlines by Shalmons
    • gryphon Gryphlines by Shalmons
  • Available rendering styles:
    • pixel
    • cel-shaded
    • faux-watercolor
    • flats only (takes $5/500pts off your total) 
  • Pricing Guide:
    • Regular:  $40/4000pts
    • Add clothed/unclothed version:  +$10/1000pts
      • (unclothed version will be "barbie doll nude" for humanoids, but you are free to change this in your own work)
    • Add portrait:  +$10/1000pts
      • (will be side view for humanoid/anthro, front-facing for ferals)
    • Surprise Design (leave form completely blank): $20/2000pts total  ((you are still allowed to choose a rendering style--will be $20 regardless))
  • Design Order Form
    • SPECIES?:  ((anthro can be requested on the humanoid base--head can change as needed, but keep in mind that the bone structure will more or less stay the same))
      SEX/GENDER?:  (will not outrageously affect the appearance that much, unless you specifically want it to. for humans/anthro, specify if you'd like base A or B [purely aesthetic; does not need to correspond w/your description in a traditional sense]--i can do a reasonable amount of body type adjustments for either, so feel free to mention if you'd like something more bulky, curvy, flat, etc)
      PALETTE?:  Link to a reference of your preferred color palette for your custom ((doesn't have to be a literal palette link--for instance, you can link me to a pokemon that you'd like your custom to have a similar palette to))  Please indicate which colors are intended for the skintone/fur colors, if you have a preference
      OUTFIT?:  if you'd like your custom to be wearing clothes/accessories, describe the "theme" of the outfit (ex: knight, casual, ballroom, etc) You may link refs for inspiration if you'd like 
      OTHER THEMES?: any other inspirations in mind? maybe you want your custom to be a "gijinka" of something in particular? feel free to list or link refs any of those here ((if you've also filled out the palette slot, please note that the given palette will override the palettes of any themes listed here)
      • ((Keep in mind that nearly everything in this form is optional--in fact, if you'd like to be completely surprised, you can leave it 100% blank & get a discounted surprise design for $20/2000pts :0 )) 

  • Other ToS:
    • If buying a pixel render, you will receive the 100% sized version of the sprite along with a zoomed version.
    • Your purchase will come with a 50% off voucher for any commissions from me involving the resulting design
    • You may purchase this as a gift for somebody else, I'd just like to know who it ultimately ends up with, so I can edit ownership details accordingly. 
    • As for design credit, linking back to me is appreciated but not required, as long as you don't claim credit for the original design. ((I'd love to see what you do with it though--it's always a thrill to see other people draw your designs!))
      • You may credit yourself for any significant alterations (alternate outfits, forms, etc), as long as this is clearly specified
      • You also of course have permission to commission art or crafts of this design from any other artists. (Tagging me in these is also not necessary, but I'd love to see them! <3 )
    • I know I don't have much control over this, but I would really appreciate that my designs not be used in extremely hateful, propagandist, or degrading contexts, thanks ;v;  
    • If you want to use the resulting design in a long-form commercial product (for instance, in a video game), I would prefer to discuss it first.  (I'm open to this & don't care too much about royalties or whatever, but would just like to do a brief content check for anything immensely objectionable that I'd rather not be associated with)
    • Trades and resells are allowed, as long as it's being resold for equal or less than the total amount of money spent on the design (this includes the value of any additional art commissioned of them). If possible, I would  also like to know who it's being resold to, just so I can update the owner info accordingly.  ((Non-monetary trade parameters can be freely determined by the owner))
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

COMMISSION ORDER FORM

(copy/paste & replace the example text accordingly)
ORDER TYPE/AMOUNT: (ex: 3 50x50 icons, 1 YCH)
REFERENCE LINKS: (visual references for the subject, feel free to attach as many as you like. if placing multiple orders of different types, be sure to specify which is for which.)
PROPORTION STYLE: (for any non-ych/non-32x* fullbody orders--do you want normal or "chibi" proportions? leave this field blank or off if not applicable to the order type.)
*32x are chibi by default, in order to allow more facial detail in a very limited amount of pixels
PAYPAL/POINTS?: (include paypal e-mail if using paypal. if doing a joint payment process of some sort, just describe your payment plan & list who else is involved, if any.)
UPLOAD PERMISSIONS: (list places you're ok with me uploading your commission to [and how to tag you, if applicable] just put "anywhere" if it doesn't matter [generally, i only really post commissions on dA/FA/tumblr, maybe instagram]. but, if you'd rather keep it completely private, just put "private" )
OTHER INFO(for any additional info needed--for instance, embellishment choices on a fancy portrait option.  If ordering a custom character, be sure
