*I won't draw NSFW art for clients (or of characters) that are under the age of 18, and may ask for proof of age. I also have the right to refuse a commission if I don't feel comfortable with the subject matter you've requested (for example, ships I have major issues with or themes that are triggering for me). If we can't come to an agreement and you've already paid through Ko-Fi, I will refund you.
terms of service
By commissioning me, you also agree to my process and terms as outlined on this page.
The time I take to complete a commission changes depending on factors like work, but you usually can expect the completed commission within a couple of weeks.
In order to complete your commission in a timely manner, I need to be able to contact you, whether that's on social media or via email. I can't be held responsible for delays if the client doesn't respond.
Once you are happy with the commission I will send the full-sized image(s) via email along with an invoice.
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 before I begin. I may ask for you to pay a licensing fee or to agree to additional usage rules depending on the project the artwork is for.
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, and if that's not applicable, providing a link to my website and/or my name (either draweththeraven or Raven Byrne).
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. No exceptions.
I reserve the right to use the artwork in portfolios and commission price sheets, post it online, and reproduce for merchandise, unless agreed otherwise.
NSFW (not safe for work) mostly refers to art of a sexual nature, 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, and may ask for proof of age in some cases.
