  • Some Commission types have a flat fee price while some have a fee price that varies, this will be listed under the commission type.

  • (example: Chibis have a flat fee price of +5 for wings while Shaded Fullbodies may be +20 for wings due to the size and detail difference)

Backgrounds

  • All backgrounds are an additional price added on to the price of drawing characters themselves.

  • Whether a background is simple or detailed is based on how much you ask for in the background. Example: A field could be considered simple but can be considered detailed if it's specified you want a town in field somewhere.

  • Due to the nature of backgrounds, most prices will be a sliding scale and will require a quote to allow for adjustments in price before an invoice is sent.


Simple Backgrounds

+$30 - $60

Backgrounds that are less detailed but still get across the gist of where the character is. (backgrounds that are mainly sky or space are usually in this category)

Quote needed

I'm open to any kinds of commissions and you can dm me about anything you want that isn't listed above! They are priced based on what you want and need a quote to know the exact price.



Custom Designs


Will you design Closed Species?

Yes! However you will be responsible for getting the design approved as well as acquiring any traits or myo slots needed for your design.The only exception for this rule is if I am an official designer of the species you're getting a custom of, in that case I will take on the responsibility of adding them to the masterlist and making sure you have all your traits before accepting the custom!I will not provide any traits or myo slots for you. If I am an official designer then your custom does not need a MYO slot. (This may change depending on the species)

You must provide proof of a rule stating custom designs are allowed or provide proof of permission from the species owner before hand to make sure they are okay with custom designs being made of their species.

General Info

  • Make sure you have an Inspiration sheet on hand when asking for a commission. I give quotes based on what I see on the sheet and what you tell me.

  • I take full payment upfront and will always let you know your total before sending an invoice.

  • I'll ask for your paypal email so I can send an invoice, once the invoice is sent you are allowed to take as much time as you need to pay but it must be paid in full and you must communicate when you need more time and when the invoice has been paid.

All Custom Design Commissions come with...

  • A fullbody; Shading included.

  • Any accessories or piercings and light clothing

  • A head shot to show face details (On request)

  • A smaller lineless version to show markings if its asymmetrical

Commission Fees


quotes are always open, this page is just to let you know what might have a fee but the only way to know is with a quote!

These are just the most common things I draw that are complex enough to require additional fees. Anything else not listed under this may have a complexity fee such as some markings and physical features and will be mentioned in your quote.

  • Any Art Commission Type that has "Complexity fee varies" under it's title applies here.

  • Any Complexity fees for Custom Designs will also be here.


Things that will NOT have a fee

  • Recoloring markings or adding small things/changes.

  • Removing a marking.

  • Making minor edits to the sketch such as horn shape, leg or tail positioning, expression, etc.


Fees

I may not add a fee to your quote if I think it won't be as difficult to draw for your specific custom.

  • Small/Cherub Wings - $5 per pair

  • Medium Wings - $25 per pair

  • Large Wings - $50 per pair

  • Complex Accessories (Intricate jewelry, Hats, Woven Clothing) - $15 - $30

  • Clothing (Outfits, Complex Clothing) - $25 - $50 (Case by case)

  • Certain Markings - $5 - $25 (Case by case)

  • Palettes with all neon colors (I have sensitive eyes) - $50

  • Extra Limbs - $15 per pair

  • Mechanical Parts - $25 - $50

  • Certain Physical Traits (Super long tails, Lots of eyes, Feathers) - $25 - $50


What is General Complexity?

If I feel that a design or character as a whole will take me a while to draw due to a lot of details I may add "General Complexity ($??)" in your quote. You can always ask specifically why there is a general complexity fee and I will always be as transparent as possible.

  • Clean Lined commissions have a fee for heavy clothing that is on a case by case basis for simplicity sake.

  • An abundance of accessories can have complexity fees.

  • Major edits, such as redrawing something after it has been lined, completely redrawing everything and having to redo certain markings that already have a fee applied, will have an extra fee.


Rush Fees

If a commission needs to be completed fully in less then a weeks time there is a rush fee that is dependent on how short the time to work on the commission is.Rush fees do not add to the resale value of the customs that have their value logged in a masterlist.
