Terms & Conditions | Payment & Refunds
These Terms of Service are subject to revision without notice. You must read and understand the below terms before entering into a commission agreement. This ToS is meant only to cover non-commercial, personal use work. Works for any external projects (commercial or non-commercial) must have a private contract agreed upon by both parties.
If you have any questions or concerns about the terms please contact me. By sending payment, you agree that you have both read and understood the ToS.
Commissions must be ordered through this website, or via private message on the same website in which the artist has advertised for work. This is to ensure good records.
I will not create any depiction of illegal activities, sexually explicit (x-rated) materials, or hateful/racist imagery. Mature or adult works may only be commissioned by persons 18 years or older, and the work is a case-by-case basis
at my discretion.
I retain the right to refuse any commission request without question.
Progress images may be posted to my art blog.
Posts displaying progress images to the blog should be considered up to date and current with progress on work. Time sensitive works may be requested to be withheld from the blog.
I retain the right to display the commission on any personal-use website (e.g. portfolio, blog, etc.) or online/offline art gallery. If the commission is time-sensitive, I will delay public display of the art at your request.
I reserve full rights to the image, including but not limited to its use/distribution (i.e., to create prints, merchandise, etc.) unless otherwise agreed upon. Rights to the image for your own non-personal use may be discussed and purchased after work has been completed if desired.
Sketches and preparatory works that were rejected may be recyled for other commissions or personal works.
Do not re-distribute, reproduce, or otherwise profit from the commission, beyond a resale of the original, traditional media commission, or as it applies to the terms of service agreed upon in a commercial purpose commission as described in this ToS.
If the commission is for commercial purposes, I must be notified prior to the start of work. Commercial use of the commission will be decided upon on a case-by-case basis.
Do not exhibit the commission in any commercial website or personal-use website, without clearly displaying the my name and notifying me. This includes crops of works, in such cases where an image is cropped in such a manner where the my signature has been removed you are obligated to credit upon the image. When possible provide a link to my portfolio or gallery along with the work.
You may re-size/crop the commission to create icons, wallpapers, or other graphics to be used in non-commercial digital format, as long as it continues to comply with all terms put forth in this TOS.
Understand that I owns both dogs and cats, which are frequently in the workspace. As such any allergic issues which may arise from having works shipped is not my responsibility. And that you may not legal action against the Artist for such issues. You responsible for informing me of any allergies to materials (e.g., Wool, cotton, etc.) and I am not responsible for you failing to do so.
PayPal payments are the preferred method of payment. Payments sent using PayPal must not be marked as a gift; in most cases I will send an invoice for the commission cost. Money orders or cash may be mailed at your own risk. Any loss in the mail is not my responsibility.
All prices are expressed in U.S. dollars, and payments are expected to be made as such.
I require a 50% down payment on all commissions. For illustrations (digital & traditional) this payment is due when a rough sketch is finished. For yarn tails, payment is due upon order approval.
Full payment is due upon completion. I'll send a proof of the work.You are not permitted to display or redistribute the work in any way until payment is complete.
I reserve the right to place unpaid for work up for public or private sale if unpaid within two weeks of completion, unless given reasonable cause to delay payment. "Reasonable cause" is to be decided on a case-by-case basis. Failure to remain in contact after work is complete, but unpaid for, may result in work being marked as unclaimed and placed up for public sale.
Cancelation of work before work has been started will result in a refund of 100% of payments received. This does not include any fees applied to payment sent through a payment service taken from payment.
Cancelation of work after work has been started, but before work is 50% completed, will result in a refund of all payments except for the initial downpayment of 50% of the total commission fee. I may be reuse or sell the work.
Cancelation of work after work has passed the 50% completion will result in no refund of any payments made towards the work at that point. I may be reuse or
sell the work.
Cancelation of work by me at any time will result in a total refund of any payments sent.
You may not use or claim any production work on the commission after cancelation for any reason.
Revisions to the work may be requested at the sketch stage of work only, with a limit of three. Additional changes will be charged at a rate of 1USD each. Major changes will be charged to in the current value of a sketch commission rate. Very small edits may be considered on a case-by-case basis after the sketch stage of work has been passed.
I am not responsible for shipping costs of the commission. The cost may include packaging, postage, and other shipping related fees.
I am not responsible for items lost in the mail. Commissions sent through the USPS will include insurance covering double the cost of the commission for U.S. clients only. In such cases of loss or damage due to shipping please contact me so a claim may be filed with the USPS. After a claim has been approved by the USPS you may receive a refund of the initial commission fee or a replacement (but not both). International items are unable to be insured and are not covered by the USPS, and, therefore inelegible for coverage of loss or damage.
