Private Commissions: Closed 

I will be open again for the 2019 holidays!

Terms of Service

Below are my basic terms of service for private commissions only. These are illustrations intended for personal use, that may not be reproduced, resold for profit, or used for any other advertisement purposes. For a commercial contract involving the acquisition of usage rights, contact me at sharpe.n.alexa@gmail.com

 

Before I Begin Work

Here's what I'd like you to send me as soon as you contact me:

 

1. The type of illustration you'd like (black and white or full color)

2. References! I'd like a clear idea of the characters you'd like me to draw for you. Visual and written references are both great. Please feel free to send me as many as you'd like, whether that be in email attachments, google drive links, Pinterest/Mood boards, etc.

3. The email you would like me to send my PayPal invoice to

*(note: I will not invoice you until I've confirmed your commission/scheduling!)

 

Your Usage Rights

On completion of your commission, you have the following permissions:

 

  1. You may freely post the commission on your websites and social media, or use a cropped version as an icon, banner, forum signature, wallpaper, etc. I only ask that you credit me on  

  2. I will provide you a print quality 300 dpi digital file of the commission upon its completion after I have received payment. You may have the image printed for personal, non-commercial use.

  3. You may not publicly share the full 300 dpi image. Online use is limited to web quality versions of the image (72 dpi).

  4. You may not solicit the commission as your own work.

 

My Reservation of Rights

I retain all rights for the image that I have not expressly granted above. You may not reproduce, repost, or resell the image commercially.

 

  1. I retain the copyright of the produced image, including preliminary sketches and concepts. I reserve the right to use the image in my portfolio, as well as the right to share it online on social media.

  2. I will not work with hateful, racist imagery or child pornography (NSFW involving characters under the age of 18).

  3. I generally accept all other NSFW requests (nudity, fetish, gore). I’m happy to discuss your ideas; I review each one on a case-by-case basis.

  4. I reserve the right to refuse any commission request.

 

Preliminary Work and Revisions

My commissions are a multi-step process, and I rely on your feedback so that I can tailor your illustration to you! Here is how I like to operate:

 

  1. I will send you 1 sketch for your approval. You can request 1 series of edits that I will meet, free of charge.

  2. At the completion of the final work, you can request 1 final series of edits that I will again meet free of charge.

  3. I ask an additional fee, to be negotiated separately, for more edits or major changes to the final commission. This fee will also apply if you want a complete re-do/you'd like me to make a different sketch.

 

Payment

All Payments must be made through Paypal. I will send an invoice to you after we have agreed to move forward with the commission.

 

  1. All commissions must be paid upfront.

  2. My commissions are digital products- I do not handle printing. When I've completed your commission, I'll send you an email with a google drive link, where you can download your piece as a hi-res image.

 

Cancellation and Kill Fees

Cancellation (‘kill’) fees are due based on the amount of work I’ve completed.

 

  1. I will refund you 100% of the fee if you choose to cancel before the sketch phase.

  2. 50% of the fee will be returned to you if you cancel after I’ve already made the sketch.

  3. I cannot refund you after the commission has been completed.

  4. I reserve the right to cancel any commission. In all instances of a cancellation from me, I will refund you 100%.

 

 

I do not provide a print service for commissions. However, If you'd like to get a print of your commission, I can suggest Printkeg; they do single runs for posters!
