Terms of service

By commissioning me you confirm you understand and agree with these terms and conditions


Commission Slots and Availability

My commission slots open 28th of each month. I take from 6 to 10 orders and work on them throughout the month. Each order takes roughly from 2 to 6 days to complete depending on complexity and client response frequency. I have mandatory days off on the weekend and will not work on commissions or answer emails.

If my slots are currently full, you can ask to be put on the waitlist for next month, which will secure your spot for the next time I open commissions. Please be ready to provide necessary info for your order and payment when I contact you back (usually on 26-27th).


Terminology

You are the commissioner/client. I am Demitsorou, the artist. Artwork/product/piece is the artwork commissioned. Those terms of use make a difference between "personal use" and artwork commissioned for "commercial use". Those terms are defined as:

Personal use:

Displaying the commissioned artwork online, in places of free accessPrinting it for yourselfNon-profitable

Commercial use:

Displaying the artwork in places of paid accessUsing the artwork as a mascot, for merchandise, or as a logoPrinting, publishing, redistributingProfitable

When you commission me to draw something for personal use, you pay me for the service provided rather than the final product. You are given some displaying, sharing and editing rights over the finished product. Your rights over the finished product are limited and will be explained through this document.

For commercial use commissions, a contract will need to be made. Contract must include things such as intended use, period said artwork will be used, agreement with my terms of service, deadline, values negotiated, etc. Please keep in mind that commissions for commercial use have completely different price from personal use commissions since you will be buying rights upon the artwork.

The commission rates as outlined in the pricelists are for personal orders only. If you wish to hire me for commercial work, be it freelance contract or other branding, please contact me through the same email as outlined here. The commission rates as outlined in the pricelists are final and are not up for negotiation.


The Commission process

Contact me if you're interested in a commission via email ([email protected]). Please title your email with "Commission" or similar so I am aware of the reason for your inquiry. In the email itself, state what you want (type of commission, i.e. a character design, a refsheet, or an illustration), and I will send you a Google Form to fill out the details and provide references.

The form I send to fill out will give you a good approximation of total price for the commission, but the final pricing may wary slightly. I will do my best to outline to you why your commission costs more or less than you expected.

The form must be filled out within 48 hours after you receive it. If it isn't, I will re-open the slot for someone else to take it.

Research my pricelists before committing to the commission so you have a decent estimate. If you are unsure if your order is going to fit within your budget, please let me know your actual budget so we can figure out what works best for you. Do not spam me with 'price checks'.

Please be professional and neutral when communicating with me, and avoid using overly friendly or familiar tone. Do not strike up needless conversations or small talk during our business.

You will only commission me to draw things you own or have permission to use. You hold all responsibility regarding permission to draw who or what is being portrayed. If you happen to not have permission to commission me certain thing, you will be the one who will have to deal with legal issues. If I get any messages regarding legal issues, I will expose your email as the commissioner.

I will not draw anything illegal or extreme. More info on what I will or I will not draw can be found in Restrictions section at the bottom of this document.

Once we agree on what is to be commissioned and payment is done, I will send you work in progress shots (sketches, colors, etc.). One is done after the other is approved, certain types of commissions might lack one or more of those steps. I expect you to look over the work in progress shots I send and approve them, or request edits, before the final product is sent.

Expect some degree of artistic liberty. I cannot replicate specific art styles or design elements one to one. I will try my best to satisfy what you require of me, but allow me to have certain freedom of expression.

No physical goods will be shipped, all work is done digitally, and all the final images will be sent to the client by email.

After the final product is sent the service you paid for is completed.


Edits

Edits can be done as I send you sketches/previews for approval. You can ask for edits up to two times per step for free. Afterwards any other edit in that step will cost 10$. If more than 5 edits are done overall, each extra edit will be billed 20$ regardless of which step is it. I wont do more than 8 edits in an artwork.

Edits can only be done regarding which artwork step is being sent for approval. You can ask for alterations in a sketch while the artwork is being sketched, changing its base structure. Coloring edits can be done while the artwork is being colored. You can't ask to change something in the artwork’s base structure during the coloring process.

You will be informed of how many edits you can ask for each step. Once the final result is approved the artwork will be sent and absolutely no edits will be made.


Payment

Payments are done exclusively in USD, 100% upfront, and through PayPal invoice. Commission will not be started until the payment is processed. I will not do commissions for free.

The payment must be completed within 48 hours of you receiving the invoice. If it isn't, I will re-open the slot for someone else to take it.

50:50 split on payment is possible if the order is over $600. That way you will pay me half of the cost before I start, and the second half upon me completing your order. I will send high resolution finals only after receiving the second half of payment.


Refunds

If for any reason you want to stop the commission and get a refund, contact me.

If you want a refund before I sent the sketch for approval, I offer a full refund.

If the sketch I sent was approved, I offer no refunds.


My rights

I keep all the rights over the commissioned artwork. This includes, but is not limited to:
Distributing my artwork on galleries, portfolios, printing on art books, using it for self-promotion, or price samples.I can reject an inquiry without giving an explanation.I will always credit you as the commissioner where the commission is displayed.


Your rights

If you buy artwork from me for personal use:
You cannot publish, make merchandise of, nor mass print the artwork or alterations of it for profit.You can print it, keeping it as a physical copy for yourself, but it must not be submitted to mass printing sites.The commissioned work can not be used in commercial or non-commercial projects/organisations.You can share the artwork anywhere you want, with the exceptions of places where one would need to pay to view it (i.e. a paid tier of your patreon).You can crop and alter the artwork for an icon. You agree that all alterations of the artwork will still follow the terms stated here.You cannot edit, alter, or crop the artwork in a way that removes the watermark.You must always credit me as the artist of the picture wherever you display it. You can do so by leaving a link to one of my sites near/as the picture, or by stating my business name (Demitsorou) as the creator on a line next to it.You can not claim the artwork as made by you.

Commissions of commercial use have their rights stated in the contract
