Terms of Service

Commissions by GoldenDruid - Official Terms of Service

1) Displayed  prices are subject to change according to complexity, difficulty, size, and medium of each individual piece.  Adding additional characters to a commission will increase the total amount.

2) A clear and concise visual reference and/or description of a character(s) and commission idea must be provided by the Client. After which, a preliminary quote will be provided by the Artist.

3) The Artist will start a commission once the total amount has been received.

4) Unless it’s a speedpaint or sketch card, the Client will have the opportunity to make one change to their commission in the rough sketch stage.  The Artist will present a rough sketch to the Client for approval before continuing on to completion.  No more than one free revision (or equal in terms of small alterations) is permitted. However, the Client is allowed to purchase extra changes to the rough sketch.  The complexity and quantity of these changes will result in a new quote for the total amount.  This amount will need to be satisfied prior to completion of the artwork.

5) The Artist reserves the right to reject critique and redline pertaining to artistic skill or style preference (i.e. anatomy, coloring style, etc.) if said critique reduces the artistic quality of the piece.

6) If the Client wishes to cancel their commission prior to the coloring stage (before or during the sketching stage) they will be issued a refund equal to half of the commission’s value.  They will receive no artwork after cancellation.

7) If the Client wishes to cancel their commission during or after the coloring stage, they will not be issued a refund.  The Artist will finish the commission or deliver it as-is depending on the Client’s wishes.

8) The Artist reserves the right to cancel a commission for any reason, but the most common reasons for cancellation include rude or inappropriate behavior, or the inability to communicate in effective English.  The Client will be issued a partial refund.  The Artist will retain payment equal to the work already completed.  The Client will receive no artwork.

9) The Artist will not accept commissions that depict any of the following:  trademarked characters not belonging to the Client, illegal activities, sexually explicit (18+) materials, fetishes, gore (excessive violence), and hateful images. Artistic nudity, mild violence, and humorously offensive work will be considered on a case-by-case basis. The Artist reserves the right to reject any commission for any reason.

10) Upon completion of the artwork, digital copies will be emailed to the Client.  Nothing will be mailed via the post office. (No prints, CDs, originals, etc.)  Only badges and sketch cards will be mailed to the Client. Additional shipping charges apply.

11) The Artist retains ALL rights to the commissioned artwork, including the right to make prints and merchandise, and the right to display commissioned work on any personal website, gallery, or journal. If the commissioned work is a time-sensitive gift, the Artist may delay public showcase at the request of the Client.

12) The Client retains all rights to their respective characters.  This does not allow them rights to the commissioned image.

13) The Client may not profit from the artwork beyond the resale of a physical original painting or drawing (if it was traditionally created).  The Client may not profit from the sale of digital files, reproduction of the commissioned artwork, or the sale of rights to the commissioned image.

14) The Client may create up to three prints for personal use (display in their home or as gifts).  Client may also resize or crop the artwork to create icons, wallpapers, or other graphics to be used in non-commercial digital format, but the Client is not granted permission to alter the artwork itself. The Client may upload the artwork to their personal website or gallery, provided that the Client includes credit to the Artist within the title or description of the artwork, that the artwork is presented at a reduced resolution, and that the artwork retains any and all watermarks applied by the Artist.

15) Sketches, and all other forms of preliminary visual work that have been rejected by the Client are the property of the Artist, and may be used by the Artist for any future commissions or personal works.

16) The Client must read, understand, and agree to all the above terms before entering into an agreement with the Artist.
