Terms of Service


Last Updated: 06 Sept 2021


Any of these terms may be modified depending on the requirements of the commission order. However, this will only be done prior to the start of the commision, which shall begin once payment for the commission is obtained. It is the responsibility of the client to bring up any terms that they wish to have modified, otherwise it is assumed that the client has read and agreed to all listed terms of service.

(In other words: if you, the client, are concerned about any of these terms, please let me know before I start your commission! I'm happy to explain and open to adjusting based on your budget and what you need the commission for.)

I. Before the Commission

I-A. Usage & Rights

  1. The artist will not create anything that falls under the following categories/themes: R18+, nsfw, excessive gore/violence.

  2. The artist may turn down a commission for any reason, without having to provide an explanation.

  3. All listed rates are for a personal use contract, which means that the client is free to use the commission however they like so long as it is not for profit.

  4. The client may request for a commercial use contract prior to the start of the commission; terms must be discussed and agreed upon by both client and artist.

  5. The client may request for a private commission. Terms must be discussed and agreed upon by both client and artist prior to the start of the commission.

I-B. Payment

  1. Payment will be based on the scope and terms of the commission agreed upon by both the client and the artist.

  2. The client must wait for an invoice from the artist before sending over any form of commission payment.

I-B1. Method of Payment

  1. Paypal invoice

  2. Alternative modes of payment may be available to clients based in the Philippines.

1-B2. Schedule of Payment

  1. 100% upfront (mandatory for all commission orders below 50 USD)

  2. 50% downpayment, 50% after commission is finished.

  1. The client will receive an invoice for the final payment after approval of the final, watermarked piece.

  2. After final payment is confirmed, the final, high resolution, unwatermarked piece will be turned over to the client.

I-C. Communication

  1. The artist may be contacted via email ([email protected]), instagram (@anonabelle) or discord (available on request).

  2. The client is responsible for providing a working email address and at least one other reliable means of communication prior to the start of the commission.

II. During the Commission

  1. The artist will only begin on a commission once payment is confirmed.

  2. All works-in-progress (WIP) shared by the artist will be watermarked. This watermark may not be removed or altered in any way.

  3. The client may not share works-in-progress in any public manner.

II-A. Timeframe & Communication

  1. An estimated turnaround time may be given if requested, and will vary based on complexity of the commission and the personal circumstances of the artist. The artist will generally strive to deliver a basic commission within a maximum of 20 working days (4 weeks).

  2. The artist will ensure that the client is kept in the loop on the status of the commission, and will ensure that the client receives at least one (1) work-in-progress update for each stage of the commission.

  3. The client may ask for updates, especially if an update hasn't been given after 5 days.

II-B. Contact

The artist's work schedule and availability is as follows:

  1. Monday to Friday (working days). Updates will be given on any of these days. The artist will be responsive when contacted.

  2. Saturday (half day). Updates may be given on this day. The artist may be contacted on this day, but response time will vary.

  3. Sunday (rest day). Messages sent on this day will receive a reply on the next available work day.

II-C. Revisions

  1. Once the sketch stage has been approved by the client, the artist will not accept any revisions that will drastically alter the commission or take up more time than usual to execute unless it is covered by an additional fee, which both client and artist will discuss and agree upon beforehand. Payment terms listed under section 1-B will apply.

II-D. cancellations & refunds

  1. 50% of the total commission fee is a downpayment, and is considered non-refundable.

  2. If the 100% upfront option was chosen and a client wishes to cancel the commission, they may do so at any stage and will be refunded 50%.

  3. The artist may be forced to cancel the commission due to unforeseen circumstances that will render them unable to complete it. In this case, the client may keep the current WIP and receive a partial refund based on the amount of work done.

  4. No communication from or disrespectful/inappropriate behavior on the part of the client is grounds for cancellation. If payment was made 100% upfront, the client will be refunded 50%.

  5. If the artist fails to clearly communicate the status of the commission to the client, the client may cancel the commission and receive a full refund OR opt to keep the current WIP of the commission and receive a partial refund based on the amount of work done.

III. After the Commission

  5. The client retains the rights to their character/s and intellectual property.

  7. The client may not resell the commission or any works-in-progress produced.
