Megaphone Before Commissioning Me Megaphone 
Please browse through my gallery to get an idea of my work. This will give you an idea of my current level of artistic ability, the material I am best at, and the style you will be getting. There are some styles (such as the thicker lines in this piece) that I will not be offering at present because they simply take too long and I would have to charge a lot more to compensate for the time spent.

I also no longer offer templates/linesets for Gaiaonline B/C pets or adoptables here on DeviantArt. I really enjoyed doing them but the drama, fallout, and harassment towards myself and those who ended up owning the lines was not worth it and I am unwilling to alter the conditions of use for my artwork to avoid these problems.

Email Send To Commission Me:
Send me a note here on DA or a Private Message on Gaiaonline specifying what kind of commission you are interested in. Please include references, visuals, descriptions, and anything else I would need to fill your order. If I approve the commission, I will send you confirmation and any questions I may have regarding the piece.

Dollar (US) Payment:
→ I accept payment via Paypal only!
→ Payment must be in USD.
→ If you are getting a work beyond lineart, you can request a partial pay plan. You can pay half when I begin and half when I reach the middle point (lineart). For my own protection, I will not begin a piece until at least half the payment is sent. This must be agreed upon prior to sending payment.

Gallery What you will get:
→I will send you the high resolution .png version of your commission either via a link from my Slack or via E-mail if you are willing to provide one to me. I will credit you as the owner of the character(s) and the piece in the description below.

→During the process (if it involves steps beyond lineart) I will send a WIP for each step for you to approve. Once approval has been received, I will move on to the next step towards completion.

Painter Artistic Use:
→ The owner of the artwork may use the artwork they commissioned as they see fit (icons, profile pictures, signatures off-site, etc.) so long as I am credited for the artwork.
→ I reserve the right to upload or not upload the work to my personal gallery here on DA.
→ My artwork cannot be used for commercial use unless otherwise specified. (This means I don't want to see the design up on Redbubble or Etsy without my permission- which I likely will not give.)

Thumbs Up Expanded "Do's":
→ I am generally most comfortable with fantasy pieces. I can do most races and most animal species. If there's difficulty, I'll let you know.
→ I have a lot of fun with Pokemon and can draw them rather quickly, so the rate on Pokemon is reduced from what it would be in a standard commission.
→ I don't mind doing fan art but the fan art content must be canon to the series. I don't do slashy stuff out of respect for the original work. I also will not do artwork for some fandoms (such as Undertale, Homestuck, Game of Thrones, etc.) because they skirt a little close to my personal discomfort zone. If you request one such work, I'll be sure to let you know.
→ I can do modern characters, I'm just extremely weak with technology so cars, machines, etc. aren't something I can add.
→ I can do Sci-Fi based characters as well but again, I am very weak with technology and mecha. I can attempt to do some- but it will likely not be my best work.
→ I can do backgrounds but please, please, PLEASE look through my work and see what I have been doing in the past. I'm always trying to improve but I feel that this is my weakest point in any picture.
→ I can do wings- but I will charge a bit more. Wings take almost as long to ink and shade as the entire character's outfit, hair, and body so they do require a little more payment to make up for the time spent.
→ Animals are fine! I'm comfortable drawing most species.
→ Anthros are fine as well! If something gets too close to the furry spectrum, however, I may refuse.

Thumbs Down Expanded "Don't's":
→ As aforementioned, I don't do non-canon pics. This includes, but is not limited to, shipping pics between characters and/or OC's.
→ Demonic or Satanist themes. This includes demon characters. Actual demons. Yokai and Oni are closer to monsters than actual demons, but they'll be a case-by-case basis.
→ Pagan, Wicca, or Occultist themes are a definite no-no. I can do villains and darker scenes, but if something is glorifying outright evil, I will not touch it.
→ I will do absolutely nothing sexual. This includes nudity.
→ LGBTQXYZ content is an absolute no-no. This includes characters of that orientation regardless of what you'd like them to be doing in the work. Yes, I understand that a character standing there is pretty innocent, but the references I often have to look at are extremely offensive.
→ Extreme gore is a no no. I can do violence but there's a line that I won't cross. Again- glance through my gallery to get an idea of how far I will go.
→ Technology. I suck at it. If you want a mecha suit or some such thing, I can point you towards someone else that's much better at this than I am!
→ Again- I do not do templates for adoptables or BC pets on Gaia.

Pencil I reserve the right to refuse service and content.

I am not obligated to do artwork for anyone- and refusing doesn't gain me anything. I'm not forcing a service on anyone, I'm offering it. If there's something I am not comfortable with or someone I'm not comfortable working with, for whatever reason, I have the right to refuse.

Tigryph Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Awesome! I'm always a little nervous that I'm asking too much but it takes me a long time. XD I have to take frequent breaks to ice my arm or shake it out. ><;
B-Angelo Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thats cool! Just do what you can!
Tigryph Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I will! Thank you :)
SkyeSparrow Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2016
Actually, you're probably asking too little considering the time investments you have listed... (Way lower than minimum wage!) ...but at least the prices are something more people can afford. *hugs* : /
Tigryph Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah... it's way less than Min. wage but I have to work slowly or I agitate my arm >< I know things are tight for everyone so I tried to keep things affordable. If I improve or if things get to where I'm taking days to finish a project I might alter things a bit.:hugs: Thank you for your advice and support ;; You're awesome!

A very good setup, methinks. :)  I think the prices are decent too.  The dos and dont's are decent, I think; I would do the same ones.  Overall, I think this is a good start.  You might be able to bump things up once you get started, but for now, it's not too high or too low.
Tigryph Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you! And yeah, I'm gonna flesh out the do's and don'ts a bit in the desc so there's no confusion. XD
Fantasized-Teravan Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2016  Professional General Artist
My pleasure! Sounds good.  It always takes a little time before those things get really hashed out.
