Commission Terms

-A partial down-payment must be made before I will begin work. Any commission that is not 100% paid for will have at minimum one watermark obscuring the work, commissions must be paid for fully before this is removed.

-If possible, I will provide the final .PSD file upon request so that the commissioner can create their own edits of the image.

-Any revisions made to the drawing 10 days after completion may incur a fee.

-Commissions are nonrefundable at my discretion and commissions cancelled by the buyer may not always be refunded. However, refunds will be given if the commission is not completed due to a fault on my end. Such as if the commission is not completed within the given deadline or if you have received no updates from me for 30+ days and want to cancel.

-Unless confidentiality is requested I retain the right to post a low resolution+watermarked version of the artwork to my website and public blogs.

-If artwork is not fully paid for in a reasonable amount of time (60 to 90 days after the final invoice) I retain the right to edit and resell the image. This will usually be done as a “YCH” (Your Character Here) sale, where the work will be stripped to the base, advertised, and then edited to suit the new commissioner. (Note: I may extend the payment timeframe if you talk to me about it!)

-I may reject commissions without explanation.

-If you represent a large businesses and want to use or purchase my artwork for commercial purposes, my prices will be different. If you do not clarify that I am creating work intended to be used by a large business and buy artwork using my freelance rates, I have the right to demand compensation.

Commission Copyright Policy

Artwork received for free (“requests”) do not fall under this section and may not be used commercially without prior permission. Please see the “Free Artwork” section of my copyright page for more information on requests.
YCH sales, while considered commissions, have their own copyright policies (please see the YCH section of my copyright page for more info).
Art that has been paid for with art (referred to as “art trades”) are considered commissions and fall under the rules below with the buyer being referred to as the “commissioner”.

-Anything you commission is, after completed and paid for, owned by you. You are permitted to use, edit, repost, resell, etc, any commission that you have paid for and which involves characters that belong to you without crediting me in the description.

-Commissioners have sole responsibility for reposted artwork, and I have no obligation to assist the commissioner if it is used by a 3rd party.

-As copyright is owned by the commissioner, purchased images are exempt from my website blacklist and commissioners may repost the purchased art with no restrictions.

-Although copyright is given to the commissioner, if they are asked about the origin of the work a link to my website or online profile should be given and credit cannot be taken for the work’s creation.

-If a commissioner buys an image of someone else’s character the copyright for the artwork is transferred to the character owner and not the commissioner.

-Copyright is not transferred on cancelled commissions or commissions that have not been paid for within a reasonable amount of time (60 to 90 days) after the commission’s completion, and I keep the copyright to the art. Cancelled commissions may not be used for any purpose.

Payment Options

When paying for commissions through methods that allow multiple currencies, such as PayPal, my prices are in AUD. However, if buying through methods that only display prices in USD, I will charge USD to minimise currency conversion costs and simplify the payment process.

Paypal

If you want to buy a commission through Paypal please send me an email at catwyton@hotmail.com, or use the order form above.

Please include the type of commission you want, details on the character(s), your primary contact email, and the email you use for Paypal payments (please specify if it is the same as your contact address). Note that I will not do sexual content via PayPal commissions, as per their ToS.

If there is a deadline, please specify in the initial email. And if you want to work closely with me on the commission, please include your Discord details so I can message you with updates.

After confirming the details of your commission are correct, I will send you the commission’s invoice via PayPal. The minimum 1/3 must be paid before I begin working on your commission and you will not be added to the waiting list until the payment has been made.
Do not send me any payments without receiving an invoice.

You will receive frequent updates on your commission for feedback. I’m more than happy to make changes to sketches and colours; however, any major changes (e.g, pose, expression) after the lining stage may incur an extra fee.
All previews of commissions will have a minimum of 1 watermark obscuring the work unless you have paid for your commission in full.

After the completion of the commission, you will have up to 60 days to pay the rest of the invoice in full. Once the invoice has been paid I will send you the full resolution image with the watermark removed via a dropbox link; this link will expire 30 days after it’s creation, so make sure to save your commission!

Direct Bank

Direct bank payments are only avaliable to people inside of Australia, using either my account details of my PayID email. If you want to pay me directly into my bank, please sent me an email at catwyton@hotmail.com, or use the order form above.

Please include the type of commission you want, details on the character(s), and your primary contact email. If there is a deadline, please specify in the initial email. And if you want to work closely with me on the commission, please include your Discord details so I can message you with updates.

After confirming the details of your commission are correct, I will send you the commission’s invoice via email, with payment details inclosed. The minimum 1/3 must be paid before I begin working on your commission and you will not be added to the waiting list until proof of payment is provided.
Do not send me any payments without receiving an invoice.

You will receive frequent updates on your commission for feedback. I’m more than happy to make changes to sketches and colours; however, any major changes (e.g, pose, expression) after the lining stage may incur an extra fee.
All previews of commissions will have a minimum of 1 watermark obscuring the work unless you have paid for your commission in full.

After the completion of the commission, you will have up to 60 days to pay the rest of the invoice in full. Once the invoice has been paid I will send you the full resolution image with the watermark removed via a dropbox link; this link will expire 30 days after it’s creation, so make sure to save your commission!

Art Trades

If you want to contact me about art trades you may use my order form, though the best way to do so is on a website such as deviantART or tumblr so that I can see your own online profile. Your technical skill level doesn’t matter as long as you’re willing to put effort into the art. If you’re interested, please don’t hesitate to send me a message!
Obviously, I reserve the right to reject an art trade if your style doesn’t appeal to me, but this doesn’t happen too often.

I expect the same amount of effort in return for art trades; if you buy a full body you will have to pay a full body, if you buy a headshot you will pay a headshot, etc.

I will do a rough sketch of your commission and send it to you for confirmation on the pose and character details. I will not continue work on the sketch until you have begun work on your half of the trade and shown me your own rough sketch.

After confirmation of the rough sketch, I will complete the line work and send again for feedback. If you are happy with the line work, I will finish the trade. I will send you the unwatermarked version of the drawing after you have completed your half of the trade.

DeviantART Points

If you want to pay with this option, please include your deviantART account name in the commission order form, or contact me directly through my deviantART account through a comment on my profile or a private note.

Please include what type of commission you want, details on the character(s), and if there is a date you need the work finished by.

Due to deviantART’s points handling system, I will ask that the commission is paid in full before I begin work and will set up a custom widget for this. Please do NOT pay through my donation pool or the default “send points” option.
I work with the conversion of 50 points = $1.

Flight Rising Treasure/Gems

If you want to pay with this option, please contact me directly through my Flight Rising account, and include what type of commission you want, details on the character(s), and if there is a date you need the work finished by.

I will ask for a 50% deposit of the commission price before I being work.
I work with the conversion rate of 100g / 100,000t = $1.

Other

I’m more than happy to discuss payments through other methods, such as online currencies and gift cards! These will have their own conditions attached (such as being non-refundable) that I will discuss with you before the commission is started. Because of this I will generally try and round up the price for you (eg, you buy me a $7 game, I’ll see about doing a $10 headshot instead of a $5 one).

I will redeem gift cards after the rough sketch stages of the commission are completed+confirmed, and after that refunds will not be available. Either email me at catwyton@hotmail.com or send a request through my commission order form for more details.

  • I’ll consider trades of in-game items or DCL for games I own on steam, as well as inventory items or items from my steam wishlist.
  • I will consider trades for Animal Crossing New Horizon items / recipes / bells, though I am fairy picky.
  • All gift cards must be valid to redeem in Australia.
  • My preferred cards are iTunes, Google Play, Steam, Netflix, and Kobo cards. I will also consider Playstation Store, XBox Live, Microsoft, Nintendo eShop, Blizzard, and AusPost eGift Cards.
