As of July 2014, I am now taking commissions! They are currently open only until the end of July, but if there is interest I will extend them.
I’m still tweaking my prices and what I offer. If you’d like something not listed here, or if you have thoughts on prices, we can work it out!

Terms of Service
When you commission me, these are the conditions you’re agreeing to:
Subject Matter: My dA gallery and tumblr give some examples of what I am willing to draw. Animals, especially canids, are my preference, but I will draw humans or machinery if you want me to. I don’t really have any experience drawing furries/anthros, but I can give it a shot. Just keep in mind I may decline drawing anything I do not feel I will be able to achieve or charge extra for something overly complicated or unfamiliar to me. If you want a background, I am more comfortable drawing nature than, for example, a cityscape.
What I will not draw: sexual content, non-mammals (birds, dragons and wings are okay, but I will probably charge extra), extreme gore (although blood, artistic skeleton-type stuff, and fighting is fine), imitations of other artistic styles (Ginga is fine, it’s just “draw Balto style” or something similar that’s a problem). If at any point I become uncomfortable with what I’m drawing or for any other reason, I reserve the right to decline or stop a commission. See “refunds” for more information.
Payment: You will receive my PayPal address when we have worked out the details of the commission. Please use “payment” instead of “gift.” You can pay at any point in the process, but you will not receive the finished art (though I may show you a lower-quality progress shot; see below) until you have paid.
Works in Progress: I can not guarantee that I will be able to show you the piece at every step in the process, as I often work all in one block of time. If I show you the work in progress and you are not satisfied, please let me know! I won’t be upset with you. If the markings or wrong or the hair is too short, just let me know and I will do my best to change it.
Completion Time: This is my first time taking commissions, and I have a busy schedule this summer, so completion time may be uneven. If you are commissioning something with a deadline, such as a piece for a birthday, then please let me know. I will also try to make my schedule known so you are aware if I am out of town. If I encounter a delay, then I will let you know.
Shipping: For traditional commissions, I do not currently plan to ship them. However, if you really want the hard copy, then contact me and we can work it out.
Rights: I retain full rights to the image, and will probably post it to dA. If you don’t want me to post it, let me know and I will honor that. You can use your image in graphics (or even ask me to make it into a graphic), but if I do this then you are also granting me the right to post the full image publicly.
Refunds: If you or I terminate the commission then I will only offer refunds for incomplete work. If you ordered a drawing with lineart and colors, only to cancel when I had just completed the lines, I would only refund you the price for the coloring.
Thank you to Flann for the backbone of these Terms of Service.
