I typically work on a half-up-front half-when-completed bases for most commissions, but I am open to other options in regards to projects like comic Kickstarter projects, Zines, etc. There are some exceptions I am willing to make, but please know that failure to complete a payment for a completed project will result in your being blacklisted. I will only provided heavily watermarked and low-quality images for check ins before the final payment, and I ask that you be up front about private use and commercial use of your commission as the prices and permissions vary between those two types of work.
Non commercial rights grant you the use of the art commissioned from me as private use. You may post it, share it, use it as references, modify it for personal use ONLY, use it for profile pictures, phone backgrounds, etc. You are NOT permitted to use it in a way that promotes your brand, business, or any other way that will provide you income. You may not sell it, you may not use it for merchandise, you may not submit it to contests, and you may not claim it as your own work. I also do not grant any permissions for my artwork, commissioned or not, to be used in NFTs, submitted to any AI models, or used to train AI/ML models for private OR commercial rights.
Commercial rights allow you to use the art commissioned for sales, merchandise, advertising, etc. You will own the artwork, and be free to use it for promotional, (some) publishing, etc. Selecting a commercial permission will require additional information, and a contract. I will reach out via email for these details and to have you sign the contract.
