You're always welcome to resubmit your commission at the next available opening!

  • My completion times are anywhere from 1 - 6 months. Delays can extend up to 6 months.

  • Commissions on average are currently completed within a 2 - 3 month period however burnout periods can be long with Illustrations. Illustration commissions will take the longest due to the high amount detail involved.

  • Current completion times are set at 1 - 6 Months. Some commissions are extended beyond others, depending on circumstance and are case by case if this occurs, I do not single out or exclude clients when choosing what commissions are completed before others.

  • Depending on the size of the commission, my current workload and availability, I may take longer to complete your commission than anticipated. I will try my best to complete commissions within the allotted time, however this is not always the case and time may delay your commissions due to complexity or detail, or simply because of other commissions before it.

  • Commissions should not take longer than 3 months to complete for Icons and Busts, 6 months for Illustrations, however circumstances may arise which may delay them further than originally anticipated.

  • If for some unknown reason I do not complete your commission within the 6-Month Paypal Buyer Protection your refund and commission are still valid and I can either exchange your commission for other commissions that make up the value you paid for your initial commission or I will refund you within a reasonable time period where I am able to secure the funds, minus Paypal fees and charges for transactions.

Set Dates & Schedule:

  • I make no obligation or commitment to complete a commission within a set time schedule or specific date unless discussed and agreed, my commission schedule is subject to changes at any time and delays.

Real Life Events, Delays & Public Holidays:

  • I will do my best to complete your commission in all time within my available schedule, please understand that real life does happen and I will need your patience and understanding while working with me. My time schedule is limited, freelance illustration is not my full time job.
