Quotes do not include backgrounds. Background prices vary and will depend on complexity. These are example quotes and your quote might be higher depending on the complexity of your character.

Please fill out my commission form if you are interested in a commission!


What I won’t draw

There is some content that I will not draw, either because I feel that I feel uncomfortable with the subject matter or because I have difficulty depicting the subject.

  • Politics - This includes political stances, topics, agendas, media outlets, messages, mottos, groups, symbols, flags, organizations, and figures in any regard, whether it be liberal, conservative, positive, negative, or parody. This doesn’t include patriotism for one’s country so long as the patriotism includes the nation’s/state’s current official flag. I will not draw flag burning or any other way of disrespecting a nation's flag.

  • Reproductive issues - depicting emotional reactions to infertility, miscarriage, stillbirth, and abortion. This doesn’t include pregnancy announcements, pregnancy, holding a newborn baby right after they’ve been born, etc and I will gladly draw those.

  • Fantasy shipping of real people - Depicting real people (ie: not actors in roles) in a fantasy relationship. Examples include Septiplier, Phan, etc.

  • Pin-up poses, bedroom eyes, pinning down, etc - Anything lightly sexual, suggestive, or saucy in nature. Examples: Nala and Simba in the Lion King during “Can You Feel The Love Tonight?”, licking a popsicle with half-lidded eyes, butt in the camera, etc

  • NSFW material - I will not draw nudity or any sexual content. I will not draw nipples or genitalia. The only exception is if hair is long enough to cover the chest, such as mermaids.

  • Fetishes - I will not draw anything related to a fetish, including more tame or SFW fetishes.

  • Violence, gore, abuse, and self-harm - Includes mutilations, most grimdark, “Cupcakes”/”Rainbow Factory”, unicorns with broken horns (except for canon MLP characters), abusive/sadistic situations, etc. Does not include nosebleeds, light bruises from sporting events (like boxing), or scars.

  • Hateful messages - Materials that are racist, bigoted, sexist, prejudiced, or otherwise discriminatory. This includes materials used to bully or mock others (including celebrities), as well as symbols, flags, etc that are interpreted as hateful in most, if not all, circumstances.

  • Abusive situations - pedophilia, incest, molestation, stalking, sexual assault, abuse/abusive situations, or other forms of related behaviors. This includes suggesting said abuse has happened, such as a crying person in torn clothing or crying child with a hand-shaped bruise on their body, or that abuse is imminent, such as a person standing over another with a belt in hand.

  • Guns or firearms - I will not draw rifles, guns, etc. Exceptions are science fiction laser guns or Pinkie's Party Cannon. Weapons such as bows, swords, blades, etc are generally ok but are taken on a case-by-case basis depending on the context of the commission.


Turn around times

Turn around time is how long it would take to deliver a commission and are measured by the estimated time after your slot reaches the #1 on my commission queue, not time since you paid. It is important that you check in to see where you are in the queue before feeling that I’ve taken too long to deliver your commission. Commissions are worked on and delivered Tuesday through Saturday only. If you’d like ensure delivery in a certain period of time, please indicate this in the form.

Delivered work

Clients will receive a larger image (usually 2400x3000 in size) and a smaller image with a watermark. The larger resolution image is not meant to be shared and is for private personal use only. Commissions may not be used for commercial purposes or to earn money/currency of any kind. If you share or post the drawing online, you must use the watermarked image and attribute the drawing to me with a link to me and preferably using @ starshinebeast on twitter, tumblr, instagram, or deviantart to tag me.


Livestreams

I often livestream commission work. If you would not like me to stream your commission, please let me know in the form. If you would like me to livestream your work by appointment (ie: stream at a certain time so you may watch), you will be charged an additional fee of 30% of the commission quote. Livestreams are only available Tuesday through Saturday 9am to 5pm EST and not available on holidays. If you'd like to me to book an appointment outside of those times or on a holiday, you will be charged an additional fee of 50% of your commission quote.

Uhh, I don't know if it's still open, but I am curious about getting a commission, and some of the details are confusing me on the reference image guidelines. . .

Well, it's mostly that what I was interested in was a reference, like some of the ones you've made, and that isn't really listed in the journal? Did you stop offering that, or is it more of a custom compilation of the usual options?

Darn, was hoping you could 'pony-fy' my fursona up via commission but it seems the three ways you have commissions open will not allow that.

Can I ask the difference between a headshot and a portrait? :>
Reply
:iconstarshinebeast:
StarshineBeast Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Sure!

Assuming you're talking about ponies, a portrait usually includes to the waist area or just a little beyond it and doesn't include backlegs (usually) or the tail. A headshot is from the front shoulders and up.

Here are some examples of each...

Portraits:
Azure Sparkles (commission) by StarshineBeast Sweet Lullaby (commission) by StarshineBeast Kicking Your Butt Is Gonna Be SO Awesome (commissi by StarshineBeast


Headshots:
Twilight Sparkle by StarshineBeast Please Don't!! (Commission) by StarshineBeast That Look in Her Eyes (commission) by StarshineBeast

Sorry that I don't have many recent examples of headshots/busts. They're not a common commission type. ^^;

Time to save up for a bit. I should have enough for the soft cell shade today. Would love the fully rendered one though but I don't think I'll be able to get the extra 1,400 before the rest of these slots get taken.
Reply
:iconstarshinebeast:
StarshineBeast Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Well my slots are always emptying out as commissions are being completed. I think it's been over a year since I've had to close down commissions due to them being full. Because I use my commission money to pay bills, I don't shut them down unless they're full and that's very rarely. If you'd like, go ahead and save up. I'll be around and more than likely available to commission. :3

I only need like 500 more for a refined headshot. I should easily have that by tomorrow. Though if I can get another 1,500 then I'd have something even more awesome X3

How much cost for points commission 
Reply
:iconstarshinebeast:
StarshineBeast Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
They're equal to their dollar cost. 80 points = $1. So a $20 commission would be 1,600 points.

They'd be the same as my pony sheets. :3 The information on those is here: docs.google.com/document/d/1Ad… The options would be a little different, like I doubt your animal OC would have a Crystal Pony form, but the prices wouldn't be any different.
