  • If your commission is declined please do not feel deterred! I am only one artist, I'm not always able to take on all commissions submitted! You're always welcome to resubmit your commission the next available opening! I try to select a range of commissions and clients, sometimes an idea may just not be chosen at that very moment but it is still an idea I'd love to be able to bring to life.

★ Work In Progress (WIPs):

  • There are no wips or revisions for small artworks under $100 USD. You will receive a final image without a preview and adjustments unless character design error is made at fault of my own. You are responsible for providing all of the correct and accurate information on your forms.

  • WIPs are provided at set stages throughout Half and Full Body Illustrations.
