Hey everyone.

Thanks to everybody who wished me a happy birthday today.  It is much appreciated.

Unfortunately, I was actually sick all day.  Not the most pleasant way to spend my birthday, but the well wishes certainly helped.

Still working behind the scenes on my latest commissions.  Sorry to those who are waiting for progress on their commissions.  Between work being especially busy lately, and being sick for the last couple of days, it's been hard to make progress, but rest assured I will get back to you ASAP.

To everyone else, thanks again for all your support, and I hope you all had a great New Year. 

Looking forward to a great and productive 2015.  ^_^

Cheers.

Hey all,

I have finally decided to open up for commissions. I will start with 5 slots, and see how things go from there.

I got a few positive responses when I inquired about people's interest a while back, so I am hoping for some interest here.

I imagine a lot of people are watching me right now because they share my obsession with ponies. And indeed, most of my example pics will be of ponies. However, that does NOT mean you need to limit your subject matter to ponies. I am pretty open. So long as it sticks within the rules...

Here are the rules. :)



I will not Draw:

  • Extreme violence or gore.

  • Explicit substance abuse.

  • Explicit sexual content (keep it PG13 or so).

  • For anything that decide I am morally or otherwise not comfortable with, I respectfully reserve the right to decline the commission.

  • I will be checking accounts for any suspicious activity, such as art theft, multiple deactivations for no known reason, pages full of hidden comments and other such things. If I see this, I may also decline the commission. This is to prevent scam and charge-back.


What I will draw:

  • Main cast ponies.

  • OC ponies.

  • Light shipping is okay.

  • Non-pony characters that do not violate the above conditions.

  • Mechanical characters or characters with a lot of armour may need to be negotiated, due to the detail involved.


When you have received your commission:

  • You may post the art in your own DA gallery or elsewhere, as long as you provide credit.

  • You cannot sell them. You can only use them for personal things like prints for yourself.

  • Only a relatively low-resolution image will ever appear in my own DA gallery.  The paying client will receive a high-resolution Photoshop PDF file that can be used to produce high-quality prints, if desired.


My rights to the art:

  • I am allowed to post the art anywhere, but I will never claim your OC.

  • The art belongs to me, and the OC belongs to you.

  • I am allowed to use the art in art books or prints.


When sending with paypal...

Please include a note so I can make sure who you are ....

e.x Commission order from _______ @ deviantart


Additional items:

  • Deadlines are allowed as long as they are reasonable. (may be rejected though)

  • I do not proceed with any commission until payment is received.

  • I will draw according to your description, though a bit of freedom is appreciated. :)

  • I will only make changes free of charge if it was a mistake on my part. If you were not clear with what you wanted, you have to pay for any changes.

  • PLEASE specify if you would like a particular style, or any other relevant details. Otherwise, I will go with what I think is best.


  • ******I CANNOT REFUND IF I HAVE STARTED YOUR PICTURE******



How to get a commission:

Step 1 – Note me with your idea, and we will decide whether to do business.

Step 2 – Pay up front deposit of $10. This reassures me that you are serious about purchasing the commission, and it assures you (the client) that I am committed to completing it. The deposit will be deducted from the total amount due. Please Note, if you change your mind but have already paid the $10 deposit, the deposit is non-refundable.

Step 3 – We will discuss the details of the commission through DA notes, email, or instant messaging.

Step 4 - I will send you preliminary sketches based on the description of what you asked for. This is to ensure that we are both clear on what is expected.

Step 5 – The remainder of the due amount is to be paid before I proceed with the final production.

Step 6 – I will complete the final product in a timely manner. Any minor changes, within reason, may be discussed until you are satisfied with the final product.

Step 7 – We're done! Thank you, come again. :)



Commission Options:


Basic Shaded Sketches – $15 CAD

These will be uncoloured, but shaded with sketching pencils. I will send you a digital scan. If you want the signed original mailed to you, we can discuss shipping.

How to Pay:
paypal-logo.png

Preferred payment method is through Pay Pal. If you do not have a Paypal Account, follow the link below to create your account. It is simple and easy to use, and means that if any currency needs to be converted, there are no transference or conversion fees for either parties. I accept foreign currency.

Click here to create your Paypal Account ;
www.paypal.com/home

If you must pay by check or money order, I am open to it, though it may delay the transaction, since things will have to be sent by snail mail.

Currency I accept:


Canadian Dollars

US Dollars

British Pound Sterling

EURO

Australian Dollars

Japanese Yen



My Pay Pal email address is the same as my email address. I will provide this to you once we have decided to conduct a transaction. Please first contact me directly, via DA note, before sending any payment.

Please do not send details of what you want until after you have paid your deposit.


BY COMMISSIONING ME, YOU CONFIRM THAT YOU HAVE READ THE RULES AND WILL FOLLOW THEM

Starbat 5
Bit of a NON-pony-related thing this time.  This little design dates all the way back to 2006 when I first got involved in DA.  This was one of the very first uploads I made.  Starbat by Starbat

Every once and a while though, I try to upgrade the design, hopefully reflecting an improvement in artistic skill in the meantime.  I was never very happy with Starbat 4, so here is Starbat 5.  I hope you like it.  ;)
