COMMISSION INFORMATION

SLOTS

I will only be taking two at a time so I don’t get too overwhelmed with them!

  1. TAKEN

  2. OPEN

TERMS OF SERVICE

  • Commissions are for personal use only. You can display it on your personal page, make edits to it to use on your website, etc. If you are unsure of whether you can use it for something, please just ask! No one else will be allowed to use your commission unless you give them permission to, again, for personal use only.

  • Commissions for commercial purposes will come at a later time when I am able to hash out all the details, but for now I will not be taking them. This means that the artwork cannot appear on anything that will be sold.

  • Character belongs to the commissioner, but as the artist I still have rights to the produced artwork to show as samples in the future (I will not be using them in any way commercially). Your commission will be watermarked when posted publicly, you will receive the non-watermarked PNG image.

  • If you are selling your rights away for the character to someone else, you cannot charge them more than what you paid me for the commission piece.

  • If you would like the commission to be private (i.e., I will not post it anywhere,) please let me know beforehand.

  • The Paypal account you are using must be your own.

  • Invoice will be sent within 24 hrs of accepting your commission, please pay within 48 hrs to proceed.

  • Commissions are done in the order they are placed, and will be done within 2 weeks (assuming the commissioner replies to the WIP in a timely manner. Estimated delivery times may be slower if you take longer to reply!). If you have a deadline please let me know ahead of time, I will let you know whether or not I can complete it by then so there will be no stress for either the commissioner or artist.

 

PAYMENT

100% of payment is taken upfront. if for whatever reason your payment is on hold, your commission will not be started until the payment has cleared.

For any reason you need a refund in the middle of the commission process, here is the following amount that will be refunded to you:

  • Not started: 100% minus paypal fees

  • Sketched: 75% minus paypal fees

  • Lined: 50% minus paypal fees

  • Flat coloured: 25% minus paypal fees

  • Fully shaded and completed: 0% (no refunds on completed artworks)

 

CHIBI SAMPLES AND PRICING

At the moment, I am only taking commissions for chibis! My commission rate is 50 USD/hr, chibis usually take 1.5h-2hrs to complete for one chibi depending on details. You will be quoted once you email me with all the information below!

Examples of (but not limited to) things that may increase the price of your commission:

  • Detailed weapons, armour

  • Semi-transparent clothing

  • Clothing with lots of patterns (everything on the pattern will be hand drawn from scratch unless you provide me with the pattern and specifically ask me to use that)

  • Pets/companions

  • Wings

  • Lots of colour

  • Small accessories (bracelets, necklaces, etc.)

You will receive a WIP at the sketch stage only, please make sure you request any changes at this time. You will not be charged extra here as this is just the preliminary part, if changes are asked later it may be more difficult and additional charges will apply. Please feel free to be as critical as you like, this commission is for you! If you would like additional WIPs at different stages (you can pick at what stage you want to see another WIP), +$5 USD per. If there are any mistakes on my part (e.g., I missed a crucial part of the design) once the commission has been completed, I will fix it free of charge. This doesn’t include for example a change of pose, as the entire image would need to be redrawn and was something that should have been specified at the sketch stage.

I can do up to two characters per image, I can do people or animals but am not open to NSFW at the moment.

Please make sure your character is fully ready to draw, I unfortunately cannot accept written descriptions as these are commissions for existing characters, not character design. (You are welcome to find a picture of certain clothing you would like to see the character in online and I will draw it based on that reference image)

Full res digital file will be sent to the commissioner via the email you contacted me with. Simple background is included (solid colour or gradient)

If you would like a physical print please see additional costs below:

  • +$5 USD (4 x 6 in print)

  • +$10 USD (5 x 7 in print)

  • Shipping fee: $3 USD to anywhere in the world

DO'S AND DON'T'S

As stated before I’m comfortable with doing anything that isn’t NSFW, I can do fan art or original characters. I can draw you from a photograph but please make sure there is a full body or multiple references with exactly how you’d like to be drawn (clothing, hair style, etc.) I can draw pets to go with characters, weapons, armour, and so fourth. If armour is too detailed some details may be simplified, you will be notified ahead of time if this need to be done.

Information I need from you, please email xiumaiart@gmail.com with the subject: Commission

  • Fully coloured reference image of your character (I will be drawing a full body chibi so I need to know what everything looks like from their hair to their shoes!)

  • Your paypal email for invoice (please include this even if it is the same email you’re using to communicate with me)

  • (Optional) Give me some background information about the character, something simple like personality so I can get your character right!

  • (Optional) If you would like to be contacted on IG for WIPs I can send you a DM, but this can also be done through email.

  • If you have any special requests for poses or anything like that, please let me know. This includes important things that may define your character that you want me to pay special attention to.

  • Background: base price commission comes with a solid or gradient background, please specify the colour here! You can also leave it up to me if you’d like, I’ll pick a colour from the image that suits the background. Detailed background (scenery) at additional cost.

 

Upon filling out this form you agree to everything listed here! Once your email has been received, you will receive a confirmation from me once I’ve read it letting you know if your commission has been accepted, any other information I may need from you, or any other changes that need to be made along with the quote and turnaround time.
