TIME AND PROCESS

Commissions usually begin sketching after 2 weeks .
Can take up to 2 weeks- 3 weeks to complete after that.
Please allow up to a max wait time of 2 months.
Wait time also depends on how full my queue is and what
placement you are in my queue.

I send updates directly to the client when starting, upon sketch completion, and finished product. Although I may send more during the process. My queue will always have current progress posted to it. If for some reason you aren't on there after 48 work hours please dont hesitate to let me know ! Becuase of kofis system though its rare to miss anyone.
I absolutely encourage the request of changes I will even do whole new sketch if you aren't satisfied with a pose. If after you have approved the sketch and change your mind a fee may incur depending on changes.
Compensation amount varies and will be quoted specifically to each change.
I'm usually very lenient so don't be scared to ask !!

REFUNDS

Please only request a refund only in the event you : no longer own the character, do not want art anymore, any reason other than you needing money. Do not treat me like a bank. I require 2 business days to issue a refund after it has been requested. The refund stages below will be based on what has been sent to you:
A commission that has not been started can get a 100% refund.
A commission at the sketching stage can get a 50% refund.
A commission at the lining stage can get a 25% refund.
A commission at the coloring stage or after cannot receive a refund of any amount.
If you are dissatisfied with a commission, please tell me! I will do few or small edits anytime after completion.

CHARGE-BACK INFORMATION

I offer manual refunds so at no point should a charge-back be issued. Upon issuing a charge-back the client should be able to prove some sort of negligence, neglect, & loss of communication on my part regarding a manual refund. I keep dated logs of all communication between every client and I.
If using a charge-back to void my refund policy the following actions will be taken :
The client's rights to the product in question will be forfeited. The product may be resold or utilized in other ways as compensation.
The client will be subject to public blacklist to warn fellow freelancers of their charge-back.
Not required but lets me know you read this:

***Things to note about my style
***

These are just some things I've been asked to change in the past but want to make it clear it is apart of my style
and will not be changed! All of this is a part of me.
In general take into consideration my style isn't realistic
and I never try to be realistic !

TEXTURES! TEXTURES ARE A BIG PART
OF WHAT GIVES MY ART LIFE !

Overall these are things I will not/wish not to change
as I feel its an extension of my art and myself!
Its a big part of what adds the life into it for me.
In general please consider
my style before commissioning me !
