Extras

  • Backgrounds: By default, the background for the set-price commissions is a single colour, or no background at all if preferred. I can draw a background for a negotiable fee.
  • Logos: If your property or otherwise free to use, I can add logos for free, if a file to use exists. If I need to draw one, I will do it for a negotiable fee.

When you contact me, I wish to receive the following (not required):

  • A description of your idea

  • Very gory things
  • Discriminatory artwork

TERMS OF SERVICE & POLICIES

Payment

  • There is always a 40€/rough sketch (uncoloured) down payment for set price commissions and 50€/sketch for projects, character designs and illustrations. Once I finish the piece(s), the remaining cost is paid.
  • Instalments are possible; I understand not all can pay large sums right away and hence will individually make a plan, but a general guide is a 10 % increase in cost.
  • I mainly take payments through PayPal, and I will usually send an invoice. Ko-fi is an option.
  • I have the right to change fees at any time, but the Commissioner pays the price it was at the time of commission.
  • Prices may be negotiable.

Art

  • I will draw a rough sketch for you and change it until you accept it. Note that rough sketches are not detailed. They are to give an idea of what the work will look like and does not include colour.
  • Expect that I need a considerable amount of time.
  • I will update you on the process. This generally happens on Fridays unless Commissioner contacts me on other days, or I happen to be ill.

Usage of art

  • We will decide what the artwork can be used for. The Commissioner can ask at a later date for additional use if desired. This applies to both commercial and non-commercial work.
  • The Commissioner is not to sell copies of non-commercial work without explicit written permission. Commercial work is to be used only for the purpose it’s been drawn and any advertisement for that purpose.
  • All set-price commissions are by default for non-commercial use.
    Using images on or in anything that is created with the intention of making a profit would be considered commercial use, and commercial use would include, but isn’t limited to, merchandise, in publications that are sold, other types of reproduction of the art for profit, and online or offline advertisements and commercial promotions.
  • Fanart is never to be sold unless I and Commissioner both receive written permission. Period. If work is sold, I am not responsible and cannot be upheld in court for copyright infringement.
  • I don’t demand any extra payment for the rights to use my artwork, unless there is a reason for me to receive royalties (so generally not).
  • Fees of 20% of the original payment/6 months are to be paid to me if used outside of decided use. This does also apply to copyright holders.
  • The above terms exist to protect my, and your, rights in the Swedish court, and elsewhere. I’m actually not this strict so just ask and permission will almost always be granted. Some exceptions exist, such as but not limited to, art of characters from my own creative works.

Privacy

  • For legal reasons and tax declaration, I will keep copies of the following:
    – The conversation about the commission instead of a contract (screenshots or emails)
    – PayPal receipts
    – Any email address I have

Other

  • Artwork may be delayed because of:
    – Illness
    – Death or illness of a loved one
    – Technical issues
    – Extreme weather (where I live that’s most likely a snowstorm resulting in electricity going out)
    – Anything I can’t control
  • The terms and policy may be changed at any time without notice, though I will try to let current Commissioners know.
  • I reserve the right to refuse a commission request with no explanation as to why.
  • Commissioner agrees to these terms upon commissioning.
