  • All drawings will include a subtle signature that you may not remove.

  • I might record the drawing process and post it on my Youtube Channel.

  • Prices are subject to change according to market conditions.

  • I have the right to reject any order that I do not feel comfortable drawing for any reason.

3. PROCESS AND DELIVERY

  • I will notify you when I have started on your commission, no refunds will be issued after this.

  • While I'm working on your commission I will make reviews with you to make sure I make it just right for you!

  • The number of revisions depends on the complexity of the work.

  • During the reviews, you will see work-in-progress and these images will usually include a watermark and be smaller than the finished piece.

  • The time it takes to finish your commission varies from 1 week - 3 months depending on factors such as health, the complexity of the commissioned piece and other work commitments.

  • If anything comes up that will slow the progress of the initially estimated delivery time I will let you know asap.

  • Once the piece is finished you will receive the full-resolution image along with a web-friendly size OR you will receive a physical print in your chosen size depending on your preference.

4. REVISIONS

  • 3 revisions to the commission are included in the price I have quoted. 

  • A fee will be added if you want something changed on the final drawing - unless there has been a misunderstanding on my part.

  • If you wish for me to change something in the drawing you have previously approved, I will charge you a fee to change it. The amount of the extra charge depends on the change you want me to make and is usually based on an hourly rate, to be agreed upon in advance.

  • If your reference is unclear to start with changes will come at an extra charge.
