Terms of Service

Before placing a commission request, please read the terms of service. By commissioning me, you are agreeing that you have read and agreed to these terms.

General

⬩ You the client are agreeing that you are at least 18 years of age by commissioning me.
⬩ You the client are agreeing that you have the necessary rights or permissions to commission artwork of any characters/trademarks requested
⬩ The commission cost covers a custom digital artwork. Upon completion, a digital file of the original working size will be sent to the client. The commission does not include a physical artwork.
⬩ I reserve the right to refuse any commission request for any reason.
⬩ I reserve the right to stop or cancel a commission due to rude behavior, abusive behavior, repeated failure of communication on the client's part, or any breach of these terms of service.

Requirements

⬩ A visual reference for a character, unless you're commissioning a character concept. Character sheets are preferred.
⬩ If a character's design is unusually complex there may be an additional fee for the work.

Rights

⬩ This terms of service refers to personal use commissions only. For commercial use commissions, please contact the artist for a commercial contract at rococo@rococospade.com .
⬩ The artist retains the right to any art created, including rights to display it digitally. Commissions will be displayed on my social media and on my website, and possibly within my physical portfolio.
⬩ The artist retains copyright of the finished artwork. Clients are allowed a nonexclusive right to print and display the work for non-commercial purposes. If a client wants to repost the commission to their social media they must credit the artist.
⬩ If a client uses a personal-use commission for profit (such as selling prints or merchandise) they will be found in violation of these terms and will be blacklisted. They may also be pursued for damages.
⬩ Copyright of depicted characters is not assumed by the artist.
⬩ Commissioned artwork will not be used for prints or other merchandise without the express written permission of the client.
I don't offer private (unpublished) commissions at the moment. However, I can withhold from posting commissions before a certain date if requested by the client.

Payment

⬩ USD payment, currently Paypal only. I will send you an invoice if your commission is approved. Please DO NOT send me money outside of Paypal invoices!
⬩ Full payment is required before a commission will be added to my queue.
⬩ A payment plan can be discussed if the commission's total cost is above $200.

Cancellations and Refund Policy

⬩ Once sketching has begun, only half of the commission cost is refundable. If the commission has progressed beyond the 50% mark for a given piece, the piece is not refundable.
⬩ If I have to cancel the commission for reasons other than rude or inappropriate behavior, I will refund the cost in full.

Corrections and Revisions

⬩ If a correction is required due to artist error I will correct it without charge.
⬩ To qualify as an artist error the detail, color, etc must be clearly visible on client sent references OR mentioned clearly in the brief.
Otherwise:
⬩ The client is offered three (3) revisions free of charge for art that has not progressed beyond the sketch stage.
⬩ Once the sketch has been approved for line art, the three free revisions are only valid for minor changes such as expression changes, hand gestures, or color adjustments.
⬩ Revisions can be requested further but will be charged for at the artist's discretion based on size, complexity and estimated work time.
⬩ Due to the nature of character designs and reference sheets, I will be contacting you regularly with wips and will not charge for revisions unless they require redrawing an excessive amount of the design (excessive in this instance meaning more than 30% of the design.)
⬩ In any case: I will not move forward between drawing stages (sketch, ink, flats, shades/final) until the client approves of the design or artwork. By agreeing to an approval pass, you agree that I have not missed any key details and may proceed with the image.

Time and Progress

⬩ In general most commissions can take up to 1-2 months to complete after they have been paid in full. This time can be shorter or longer depending on demand, complexity or outside circumstances*. This is an estimate. Please refer to direct correspondence for a more accurate time-frame
⬩ I will do my best to communicate any delays immediately.
⬩ Commissions are worked on during week days.
⬩ Once work has begun on your commission, I will update you 1-3 times a week.
⬩ Rejected sketches will be recycled into other projects, possibly including original paintings or YCH works.
⬩ This artist does not offer speed orders or deadlines, sorry. I can try to meet them, but there's no guarantee.

Commission types:
Sketches and speed paints have an initial rough sketch sent for approval. Sketches may have one (1) revisions, speed-paints may not.
For line art through painted finishes, clients are allowed three (3) major revisions at the sketch stage free of charge and more minor tweaks later in the process.
Reference sheets and character designs, due to the nature of the comm, have five (5) major revisions included in the base price.
Character design base price covers a front and back view.
Reference sheet covers front, back, face shot and detail shot, and 3-5 props.
Extra characters each cost +100% of the initial commission cost, not including the cost of background.

Note:
I do not recommend painted reference sheets due to the likelihood of details being unclear or lost. Instead please consider flat color or anime shaded options. Thank you!
Backgrounds:
Simple backgrounds such as flat colors, shapes, or patterns/gradients are included in commission price, complex backgrounds will incur a fee ranging from $25-$100+ with the lower end being natural backgrounds like forest and the higher end being perspective or detail heavy environments like a city.
Speedpaints:
Speedpaints are priced at $75-$100 and do not include wips or revisions beyond an initial approval sketch sent to the client after payment. They require clear character reference. I will do my best to deliver a polished piece within the timeframe, but simple prompts and designs are encouraged for this type of commission. I may simplify a character's design at my discretion without consulting the client. Do not choose this commission type if you want wips or revisions.
