$250? Are you crazy?
I am a working artist and I must set aside a day or two from my normal work schedule to complete your commission or request. As such, I believe this is a fair rate to compensate for my time completing your request. I take lots of time and care in these commissions, and in order to ensure that your request retains a high standard of quality I must retain this rate. This rate is not negotiable.
What can I ask for?
I limit my commissions to 11" x 17" pieces with three characters. However, choice of scenery, location, colors and props is not under limitation. Please scroll below for the Commission Request Guidelines for full limitations.
How do I order and tell you what I want?
1. Buy a commission from the Store.
2. Once you are finished, please go to my Contact page, and enter the following into the Subject line:
"Commission Request- [Order Number]"
In the body of the form, please describe your request and be as specific as possible. If there are things you would like me to reference, please include links. I will be in contact with you shortly after receiving this message with questions or sketches.
How long does my request rake?
Requests usually take up to one month, however, it may take longer. Please keep this in mind if you need a commission for a specific purpose such as a gift. I am more than happy to work with you to ensure that your request gets done in a timely manner.
Can I get a printed copy of my commission mailed to me?
I can ship you an 11 x 17 lustre print for an additional $15.
Commission Request Guidelines:
Once you order the commission through the store, you agree to the guidelines set below. Please do not order a Commission if you have not read and/or do not agree to these guidelines. If you have any questions about these guidelines, please submit them through the Contact page.
2. Commission Refund Policy
If you wish to cancel and get a refund, please send a request for a refund within 48 hours of ordering. If a cancellation and refund is requested after this window, a $50 kill fee will be applied.
3. Dragon Ball Requests Only
This is a request for Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball derivative commissions only. If you would like a Dr. Slump, Dragon Quest, or any other commission that is derivative of a Toriyama work, I will consider it on a case-by-case basis.
4. No Original Characters
As much as I appreciate the creativity behind Dragon Ball Original Characters, I am currently not interested in drawing them. The reference material available for Original Characters is incredibly limited, and drawing an Original Character leaves more room for error or misinterpretation, which requires more time to fix. There are a plethora of very talented artists who are more than happy to draw your OCs.
5. No Explicit Sexual Content or Extreme Gore
If you don't want your mom looking at it, I probably won't draw it. I'll draw missing limbs or goofy faces getting punched, or maybe the occasional exploding Cell Junior. I try to keep my feed relatively all-ages. Anything that defies the level of violence in the Dragon Ball Manga or Anime will not be accepted. I am more than happy to clarify what is or what isn't acceptable upon request.
6. The More Detailed the Request, the Longer the Turnaround
My commissions are limited to three characters, but not limited in terms of background detail, colors, costumes and props. As such, the more complex your commission is, the longer it will take for me to draw it.
7. Limited to Two Revisions
In order to realistically limit the amount of time spent on each individual request, I have limited the amount of drastic changes to the work can be requested. This will allow you to more carefully consider changes (and I am more than happy to provide advice or direction) and keep the work focused.
8. Use Policy
What you do with your completed request is up to you. You can print it, put it on a flag, use it on a wrap for your Miata, I don't care once payment is tendered and the work is complete. I may create prints out of your commission unless I am requested by you not to do so. Just please bear in mind that although this is a transformative fan art, it is still subject to copyright restrictions.
