- After negotiation, I will send an agreement form that overviews what we've discussed via email or preferred contact. The agreement can be changed if there's clarifications or corrections.
- After the agreement is signed, I will send an invoice. After initial payment is fulfilled, then I'll start your commission.
- Any change of deadline(s) will be discussed through email or your contact of choice. If time is not an issue, I will try to complete your commission within a month as a deadline (I'll let you know if there's any immediate delays on my end so you won't be charged).
- Refunds will be permitted if there's a miscalculation on pricing or the commission is cancelled. The percentage of your funds will be returned to you depending on the time spent working on your commission (60% if canceled in the early stages, 10% if near completion). Refunds are not permitted if the work is finished or shipped.
- If you want changes on your commission(s) or converting your commission to a print before completion, please be aware of extra charges. I give one revision for free, then sequential revisions will cost more.
- For traditional artworks or prints: final work will be shipped to you. Shipping costs will depend on your location. If I can contact you locally, please let me know the days you're free for drop off.
- For digital images: final images are sent via Email or Private DM of your choice. WIPS are sent as screenshots.
- I have the choice to turn down your offer(s) if it doesn’t comply with my ToS.
