Update 20150830: Wow! Only reopened for a few hours and already several inquiries. I've added one piece to the queue and I've got two or three more that may be added as soon as details are worked out and deposits are paid. Thanks to all the interested parties for the support!
Hello, everyone. I have caught up on all commissions and my rush period at work is over for now, so I am reopening for sequences as well as the regular offerings of commissions. I know some of you may want to get projects in for Halloween-- if you do I'd recommend contacting me as soon as possible.
When I reopened for regular commissions a week or so ago, I made some revisions to the procedures, specifically regarding payment. Now that bigger projects are back on the table, it might be a good idea to revisit them.
1) Commissions totaling $50 or more require a 10% NONREFUNDABLE deposit before I begin work.
2) Commissions totaling $100 or more will require half the total cost paid upon sketch approval before the inking and coloring commences.
If you have any questions about these procedures, let me know. These rules are in place to protect both myself and to help the client. This summer I had two projects that, upon or just before completion, the clients told me they would not be able to pay for a couple of weeks or more. I have been in touch with them since and based on communications with them these issues should be resolved this week, but it did put both of us in an awkward situation. I also had a few cancellations.
By requiring a deposit, I hope to keep people from signing up for a project they may not be sure they can afford. By requiring the half payment after sketch approval for the bigger projects, I'm also protecting myself by assuring I collect at least some income for my work. I'm also hoping the folks who want the bigger projects might find it easier to pay for it in a few smaller parts instead of one big sum at the end.
Anyway, as always please note me if you have any questions about the new procedures or anything else you want to know about commissioning. Hopefully some fun Halloween themed projects--or maybe even early Christmas treats--are awaiting me!

The Options (Click to view):
1) Request a commission by noting me on Deviant Art at :icondragonfly177:. Let me know what kind of commission you’d like, and who it would feature. Links to references are appreciated, especially if it’s an original character of yours. I’d also be interested to hear what it’s for (your own personal enjoyment, display on your dA page, profile art for an OC or Fan Fic character, a gift, etc.). (See additional notes on sequences below.)
