  7. Commissions are for personal use. If you would like to commission for commercial work, please inform me.

  8. Should the client request a work in progress photo, I will be sending a lower quality file with a watermark. It is a procedure many artists take to protect their work from being stolen. The finished work will be in the proper quality (300 dpi or 350 dpi).



Can you negotiate with the prices?

No, those are flat rate prices. Those prices are fair for the time and effort I will be putting in each artwork I create. In addition to lowering the prices from what I have found online to make them more accessible. If I charge by the hour the prices will be too high.



How long are you going to wait to receive the artwork?


It depends on what number you are on the commission list and if you have provided all the information. The Time Table is a rough estimated time, it is subject to change. I will contact you in between to let you know about the progress. In addition, you can check my Commissions Status Board for immediate information. 


What is the difference between a request and a commission?

A request is asking politely or formally for something. When you are asking for a request, I have all the rights of the drawing. More importantly, I choose the complexity of the art, if and where I publish it, when to start and when to finish it and lastly, I choose if I get to do it or not. Nobody is paying me for the time and effort I put in the requested piece. I ask you to not republish, trace, copy, edit or claim credit over any of my requested art. Contact me before posting it to social media. I might not like the work and not want it to be uploaded.


A commission is an order for something to be produced in response to such an order. It means to buy something, you pay for what you ask for. You choose the complexity of the art and pay accordingly.
