academia and video essays

i recently completed my fine art honours thesis on memes and their role in art history, which i want to publish and/or turn into a video essay! for other work check out my academia page and past essays/video transcripts.

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 a PayPal invoice so you can pay; this is done after the sketch and before I send the finished work.

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

  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

Payment: By commissioning me, you acknowledge that you consent to my process, which includes the parameters for pricing and payment. Once you are happy with the sketch for your commission (or sometimes lineart if you ordered a colour commission) I will send an invoice for the full agreed price and expect that to be paid before I send the final, full resolution artwork UNLESS there was a deadline and outstanding circumstances that meant you couldn’t pay the full price in time, in which case I need to be notified and paid as soon as possible.

Ownership: Once the completed commission is paid for in full, you can use and share it wherever you wish for commercial and personal use. However, it is common courtesy to appropriately credit artists and I request that you acknowledge me as the artist instead of claiming the work as your own. This means tagging me if I am on that social media platform or providing my name/username (draweththeraven) and a link back to my website if I'm not.

NSFW Terms: ‘Not safe for work’ mostly refers to art of a sexual nature such as pinups or sexual intercourse, but may also include non-sexual nudity, gore, and common triggers. I will not draw NSFW art for clients (or of characters) that are under the age of 18, for both legal and personal reasons.
