TERMS OF SERVICE
PAYMENT AND WHEN?
-I take payment after or before I do work, though I prefer to take it before. I will usually sketch up something immediately to get an idea of pose for you!
-Payment is usually required, if it wasn't paid upfront, after the sketch and pose have been finalized. Until then, I won't do any more work after the sketch and pose have been done until payment is sent.
-However, if payment was sent before, I'll work with you.
STREAM CLAUSE: If I drew it on-stream while you watched, you don't get the full picture at all until you pay me.
-My turnaround is generally same-day if you're around, but sometimes this doesn't happen. It's never more than a week of turnaround, unless I've had an especially bad mental space.
I do my best to let you know when it can be expected. I will communicate with you if things don't pan out as expected.
-Please be patient. I have depression, and motivation can be hard to come by. However, I encourage you to check in on me and ask about how it is going!
ABOUT STYLE & SUCH
-Default 'background' is either transparent or white. You can ask for a solid block of a color of your choice for free, no matter what tier ($10, $15, etc.) you chose.
-I won't imitate other styles; what you see is what you get, and honestly, if you're commissioning someone it should be for their style! I'm aware that I study other styles (such as Sugimori, or Paper Mario Style) but I still don't offer these on-demand. If a certain style's not on my prices page, it's not available as a commission type.
-I'm happy to work with you on designs; you can give me things such as moodboards, or animals, and colors, and I'll work with you to create it.
-My style is very varying with shading. Please know this if you ask for shading; it's one part of why my shading is much cheaper than most other people's shading, as it's essentially a grab bag of what shading sort or brushes I decide to use.
You will also have to tell me if you want it shaded, as if you don't state so, I will assume you want it flat.
-Refunds are provided, but only partially, in the case that I've done some work. They're not covered at all if I've given you the completely-colored picture.
-Refunds only cover what I haven't done, if you ordered more than one picture. (ex: order 4 telegram stickers, i've only done one, i'll refund for the remaining 3.)
-If I've only done an sketch, I will refund everything except for a small amount USD. -If I've done the lines, I will refund a little over half.
-If I've done the coloring before you've told me you'd rather cancel, I'll only refund about half (please remember that I work fast).
However, if you decide you want an refund after seeing the full thing, after okaying it at each stage, you will get nothing back.
WIPS & CHANGES
If it's not an in-stream commission, I will be sending you along an sketch that's very barebones (for me) and meant only to convey the pose and whatnot, to see if you like it. It's not meant to have details.
If you okay the sketch/pose, then I will move onto the lineart phase, and send you this after I've finished. It's at this point that you can ask for changes, but remember that I have an edit policy as well.
After you okay the lineart, I will move onto the coloring phase. Often this is where it ends, as flat colors are very easy to do, and after that you get one final chance to okay it or ask for fixes. Fixes cost extra when it's shaded, however.
Please know what you want and make sure you look at my examples first so you know what you're getting, and make sure you've read all of these terms (particularly the STYLE section).
I will change things around at request, but after enough edits (generally 2-3-ish major edits) I'll charge for an complexity fee.
Asking me to change something excessively while you aren't sure what you want, then deciding you prefer the first version of what I had done will automatically incur an complexity fee.
I may ask for the complexity charge after I've finished all of the work; if you don't pay up if I ask for one, I won't take any more commissions from you in the future.
Worried about privacy? Check my Privacy page. The only catch is that if I'm not familiar with you/I took a lot of commissions at one time (which is uncommon, as I tend to work on them in order) I may have to ask you for your initals to make sure the payment is from the right recipient. I try my best not need to do this though.
You will have to tell me if you don't want something posted on Deviantart and/or Twitter, otherwise I'll use my own discretion about it.
ON EDITS OF MY ART: Please do not edit my art without first asking me and telling me what you want to edit it to be. Please understand that I may decline the edit, depending on what it is, as well.

Such as anglerfish, hatchetfish, deepsea sharks, moray eels, bobbit worms, etc. Drawn as long as it's not too photorealistic is fine.
I am fine with lobsters, crabs, nudibranches, angelfish, most sharks (but not deepsea. Nurse, Tiger, Great White, are fine), manta rays, etc. If unsure, just ask.
