I recently graduated and I need commissions to pay living expenses and student loans while I look for a permanent job. Until then, this is my income.
I usually do work in anime or manga style, but can do semi-realistic work, as well. I enjoy doing fantasy, modern or urban, cyberpunk, historical periods (from pretty much anywhere), and I have recently been working on steampunk and sci-fi. I don't normally draw mecha. I can do some anthro like Final Fantasy or Legend of Zelda, but will not do furry art.
I can do fan art, original character art or initial design, illustrations or portraits, concept art, and I've recently started making comics. While I can do some mature work there will be an $8 fee after proof of age and content approval. I will decline anything that makes me uncomfortable.

I will start with a basic sketch to map out characters and a background (if applicable). Once one has been approved I will ask that at least half of the provided estimate be sent to my paypal account (only given to buyers). I will provide marked progress shots, with a time count, to esnure the buyer gets what they want and to show where I am. Once the commission is finished I will send a watermarked and shrinked final. Once I have been paid in full you get the actual work, large file, or best scan that I have.The tiny typeCommercial work will either need to be paid with a quarterly profit margin or 1 to 3 times the amount of the work depending on the purpose. I will want to retain rights on most projects depending on its nature. For comics or ongoing projects payments can be done in arranged installments.
There are cancellation and rejection fees which are tacked on to the commission price. Fees and final price are based how much of the commission I completed, rejected work will have to pay based on 25% of the sketch and inking phase, 50-75% for colored or completed work. Cancelled work may have rights transferred back to client, especially in cases of character design and concept art.
Buyers are not allowed to reproduce outside of contracted intention or modify artwork, re-sell without paying royalties to me, or claim it as their own. The only exception is if rights are purchased or surrendered voluntarily to the buyer. I retain the right to include all work in my portfolio to use as examples for other potential buyers. I may also request permission to sell reproductions of artwork online or at conventions. I may also request to record video footage of work for my youtube channel.
Failure to pay for work in reasonable time or after a certain amount of requests, or breach of rights and use, will result in reports on this site, paypal, or civil action based on what is done and severity. Client will also be blacklisted.
