As I am re-opening commissions (and re-joining life it seems), I felt it necessary to update my commission information for those who may be interested. 
I do still work a fair number of hours at my day-to-day, but with those hours recently in question based in the direction of my company, I am looking to supplement my income to avoid any greater struggle than is already being faced.

Introductions behind us, I'm offering character art to those interested; this would be predominately character work, though very simple backgrounds (abstract, block colour, boarder, simple objects) will be considered, at an added cost. 
All work is purely digital media, made in Photoshop, with digital delivery. At the close of the commission, Commissioners will receive a high-resolution format of the finished image, as well as any additional sketches and preliminary work. During the course of the project, Commissioners will receive routine updates at key points (sketch, lines, base colour, final colour), and may request major changes and/or minor changes at noted intervals. During sketch phase, major changes may be made - this to include, pose, character appearance/design, even a new character may be supplanted so long as the degree of difficulty is comparable. After a sketch has been finalized, accepted, cleaned, and lined, only minor changes will be allowed moving forward - this to include, facial expressions, very minor design aspects, and minute body/limb readjustments.

I appreciate communication a great deal and strive to be as available as possible during the project. I always encourage Commissioners to be absolutely honest with me throughout, so that I may deliver the best possible final product. 

I'd like to reserve the rights to post the completed work to my DA page, however I do understand, and respect, any individual's desire against this, and will honor a request to not post. All posted images will receive appropriate credits to character owner/designer, and - if possible - a link to that individual's site will be placed.
I do reserve the rights to the artwork itself, and do not authorize for my work to be used commercially, or in any other capacity which would lead to the financial gain of others. The only exception to this is with regards to the potential private sale of a character/character design, which is copy write to the Commissioner; should the Commissioner wish to sell a character/character design, packaged with prior commission(s) as incentive, it would be their right to do so. Beside the terms listed, this work is intended for personal use only, and as a final reservation, I reserve the right to refuse any potential commission(s) at my discretion.

I am open to working on multiple, eclectic, character types, such as human, animal, anthropomorphic, monster, and cybernetic. Feel free to request fanart, OCs, custom races, or - should you like it - some of my own personal characters. 

Payments are USD only (points/trades not accepted), and are made via PayPal, which also manages any currency conversions; invoices not routinely attached, but I am happy to do so at Commissioner request. Payments may be made at any time after the Sketch phase has cleared. **This excluding Sketch-only commissions, of course, in which payments may be made at any time.

- Characters which are exceptionally complex in nature, that may extend working time significantly in order to accommodate, may result in additional cost to account for added work time. This is a special circumstance that will be discussed, with terms agreed upon, before any work begins.

For those interested, please send me a note with your request, detailing the kind of work you'd like done. Please be as generous as you'd like in adding any helpful details and reference descriptions and/or images. I will return your message as soon as possible to discuss the commission with you, as well as provide you with a time I can begin, and update, additional contact, and payment information.

Thank you for your consideration!

Missing you and your amazing art! ;.;
ravenshield Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh, Luzan...I am so sorry...
I truly miss you too - so much.
I have been really down for a very long time now, and I'm really letting it ruin so much. I am doing my best to come through it though, and I so appreciate hearing from you! I wish I was being a better friend to you; I've been so distant. I apologize! You have always been so wonderful and I love that I am so lucky to know you!! :heart: 
I promise to try and become more active again, and talk more often!!

I miss you and bet that I´m not the only one!  To be honest, you have your life and we all respect that but hearing more from you would be great :0

Art always help! Also talking to others help too. Maybe we don´t have that trust but it would be fun to talk! Or maybe keep in contact. You don´t need to apologize :D Just take your time and eat food, lots of food!
