If you have an idea for an image type, style, or add-on that is not listed here, such as a piece in my gallery you like the style of, feel free to message me for a price estimate. I am always willing to try new things and am happy to help work with you if you have a specific idea in mind. Please note that the MINIMUM order for a commission is $10.


ADD-ONS:

Shading can be done either as cell shading, painted shading, or gradient shading. Cell shading is +$10, gradient and painted shading is +$15.
Cell: Example 1 Example 2
Gradient: Example 1 Example 2
Painted: Example

Exceptionally complicated characters (for instance a Cerberus with 3 heads, a character with 20 pieces of jewelry, etc) will have a minor fee added due to the extra time they require.

Backgrounds can be done as either transparent, minimal (simple texture or graphics), rough painted, or full painted.
Transparent: Example
Minimal: Example
Full Painted (from more simple to more detailed):
Example 1
Example 2
Example 6
Example 7

Transparent/Minimal backgrounds will not add a charge. For painted backgrounds, it will vary in price due to how detailed the background is; minimum of $10, maximum of $75 for exceptionally complicated settings.

Two characters in an image is double the price, three is triple, etc. (This does not include the price of the background). If a character is being majorly overlapped/obscured, that may reduce the price.

ToS:
PAYMENT:

I only take payments via Paypal - no mailed cash, checks, credit cards, and ABSOLUTELY NO DA POINTS.

For orders under $30, you must pay in full, upfront.

For orders over $30, I require at least 50% of the payment up front and the remaining 50% before I show you anything beyond a cleaned sketch. Or you can pay in full upfront, your choice. Paying in full is suggested, but not required. I cannot do payment plans, please only pay in at most two increments.

My prices are non-negotiable. Please do not try and haggle. Additionally, I do not accept payments from 3rd-party accounts - you must pay me with your personal PayPal account, not someone else's or a shared one.


REFUNDS:

If you need to back out of a commission, please tell me as soon as possible. I will refund you in full if I am not past the cleaned sketch stage. If I am past that, I'll try and refund you for an appropriate percentage of your payment. I understand that financial issues come up (and sometimes I work slow and that annoys people, no hard feelings) so I will try and work with you to get a refund if you require one. However keep in mind there are limits to this; I can't refund you if the picture is very close to completion, and I definitely can't refund you in full if progress has already been made. 

If you require a refund, please send me an e-mail labeled REFUND to Hzs91@hotmail.com or note me on this account.

As the artist, I have the right to refuse a commission for any reason, at any time - including while the commission is in progress. If the commission is in progress and I no longer wish to continue working on it with you, I will refund you in full, regardless of completion level. If you refuse a refund after I state I wish to drop the commission, I will consider your payment a donation to me.

If I send you a question or WIP while I'm working on your commission and do not hear back from you in 30 days, I will consider the project abandoned by you and will halt all work until I hear back from you. It is YOUR responsibility to keep me updated if you change accounts/contact info.


ACCEPTABLE SUBJECT MATTER:

Below is a list of things that I consider myself proficient and/or comfortable in drawing:
-Animals, any species
-Fantasty animals, any species
-Weres, anthros, taurs, and furries
-Minor to moderate amounts of gore (surface wounds, blood, fighting)
-Tasteful, discreet nudity

Below is a list of things that I certainly can draw if requested, but do not consider myself particularly skilled with. If you want one of these to be the main focus of your commission, you may be better off finding a different artist who specializes in them:
-Humans/humanoids
-Wings
-Mechanical objects (cars, machines, mechs, robots, etc)

Below is a list of things I will NOT draw. If your commission must feature one or more of these, I will not accept your order:
-Anything explicitly sexual (a character nude on a ref is fine. characters with erections, having sex, etc - not fine)
-Excessive, explicit violence (i.e. heads exploding, innards falling out)
-Racially/demographically offensive material
-Detailed Veins or hearts
-Fetishes or anything related to them (i.e. characters rubbing their feet, in lingerie, vore, etc)
-Tattoo designs (I am NOT comfortable with my work being used as a tattoo)
-3rd-party copyrighted characters (ie. Pokemon, MLP, anime characters, etc)


TIMING:

While I can't guarantee that I will get your commission done lightning-fast, I will try my best to get your order to you in a timely manner. Please note that depending on the type of art you order, your waiting time will increase/decrease - for example, a simple sketch will take much less time than a colored image with a detailed background. Due to the unpredictabilities of life, commissions may take upwards of 2-3 months; if they go longer than that I am usually able to offer discounts as compensation. However I try to keep to a turnaround time of under one month.

You will get as many WIPs of the picture as you feel is necessary  Typically I give one for rough sketches (to choose a pose/composition you like), one for the cleaned sketch (to ensure the character is drawn to your liking), one for flat colors (to ensure the design is correct) and then the end image which you can tweak to your liking, if needed. You may request more (or less) frequent WIPs, however keep in mind that the more you request/send back, the longer the process takes. If that's not a problem I'm happy to communicate with the best I can.

If having a specific deadline is important to you, please specify that WHEN YOU ORDER. It's inconsiderate of you to ask for a commission and send me a note a few weeks later angry at me because it needs to be done right then and there. If you are polite in your explanations I will almost always be more than happy to work with your schedule, but please remember my limitations... I can't paint an entire picture in one day. Allow for time if you have a deadline.

Rush order jobs may incur an additional fee depending on the complexity of your order and how much faster you want it.


CONTACT:

The easiest way to contact me is by sending me a note, although my email at HZS91@hotmail.com also works fine. I will send you work-in-progress images at the concept, sketched, and colored stages so you can verify everything is correct and/or suggest changes you'd like. When completed, I will send you the finished image and a high resolution copy of the image.

I am always willing to work with the customer so the final image is exactly to your liking. That being said, please try to be as specific as you can when offering critiques, and have photo/art references if necessary to help you explain. I will not charge a fee for doing some (less than 5) revisions of a picture, but keep in mind that it does slow down the process if your critiques are vague or contradictory. 


USE POLICY:

By commissioning me, you are agreeing to pay me in full for any work of art past a sketch. I will not start work until I have at least a 50% deposit, and will not show you anything past a sketch without the other half. I am fine with waiting if you need time, or if need be, refunding you. I can NOT refund you if you've already received art that is complete or nearly-complete.

Upon completion, you will receive two files, one in display size and one in working size (hi-res). Do not repost the hi-res file, it is only for your personal private use. You may edit it or use it for icons, layouts, etc, but please do not post the hi-res file itself. You may post the display size file wherever you wish, all I ask is that you please give a link back to my DA/FA page, or at least have my name marked down somewhere. Otherwise, they are yours to use as you please. You are welcome to make your own additions/edits to the image (provided they are not derogatory, of course) but if you intend to have another party do any editing/work with the image, you MUST clear it with me beforehand.

If I am particularly satisfied with how an image turns out I may ask to submit it to DA/FA and/or use it in my portfolio; you are free to decline if you want to keep your image private or remain anonymous.


If you are interested in commissioning me and I am open, please note me :) Thank you!

Would you charge extra if someone wanted a speedpaint of their commission, and if so how much extra? Or will you just turn that down? I'm actually very curious about this.

I see a lot of people that charge the same or more than what you do and don't include nearly as much. I'm super impressed, and it would be an absolute pleasure to take you up on one of these at some point! you do quality work for a very fair price and that's somewhat of a rarity, at least for me. i might've just been looking for artists in all the wrong places though, but compared to what i've seen you really stick out!

Also, the price of a cell-shaded image of two characters would be...? I'm guessing (assuming it's a complicated, $15 background), $33?
