How it Works

  1. Send me a message, so we can discuss what you want and how much that will cost.

  2. I do a sketch or thumbnail, so you can decide if you want changes to posing, the palette, etc.

  3. I send an invoice for payment once the sketch is approved, - I use PayPal but can also do bank transfers!

  4. I finish and send! Let me know if you don’t want me to post it on social media/use it in portfolios.

  5. Enjoy your shiny new artwork! Post wherever you like with appropriate credit/tagging and don’t claim as your own work.

Commission Terms and Conditions

By commissioning me, you also consent to my payment process. Once you are happy with the sketch for your commission I will send an invoice for the full price, which must be paid before I complete and send the final artwork. By default I use PayPal, but can also organise bank transfers.

I allow for revisions during the sketching process so that I can make the artwork match your vision as accurately as possible and some minor changes to lineart and colour. Any major revisions after the sketch is approved either will not be entertained, or will incur an extra fee for my time.

Once the commission is paid for in full, you have it to keep for personal use (eg. posting on social media or printing onto something for your own use) as long as it is not used to promote sexism, racism, homophobia, or other hateful ideas.

If you plan on using my art commercially (e.g. on merchandise, or in a game or publication), you must discuss this with me prior to commissioning me.

You must credit me as the artist for both personal and commercial use. This means tagging me if I am on the social media platform you're posting to or providing another form of appropriate credit if that isn't applicable.

You do not have the right to sell or otherwise use any of my work for NFTs (non-fungible tokens), even if you commissioned it.

I reserve the right to use the artwork in portfolios/commission sheets, post it online, and reproduce for merchandise, unless agreed otherwise beforehand.

NSFW Terms:
NSFW (not safe for work) mostly refers to art of a sexual nature such as pinups or illustrated porn, but may also include general nudity, gore, and common triggers. I won't draw NSFW art for clients (or of characters) that are under the age of 18.

You can view NSFW art samples on my NSFW carrd and Twitter.
