vi. PROCESS

1. DM me via Twitter or Discord (only applicable to returning clients)

2. I reply to your commission and issue a price in which the commissioner must agree on to continue.
3. Once everything has been agreed on I start on the sketches.
4. I send the sketch(es) to the commissioner. Once the sketch(es) have been approved, revisions aside from minor colour changes WILL NOT be accepted.
Please make sure you are happy with the posing and expression in the sketch. Changes after approval will be subject to extra charge. For instances of incorrect references provided, any completely new sketches requested will be subject to 50% fee of the original price. 
5. Once the sketch(es) has been given the OK from the commissioner, I will send them the invoice.
6. Once they pay the invoice I will finish the rest of the commission (lineart, colouring, etc.).
7. The final artwork and files will be sent to your provided contact (email/discord).
8. In the case where the commissioner asks for adjustments after I have finished your commission, there may be an additional charge. The charge is subject to change depending on the difficulty of the revision.

Please specify if you need time to pay
