Bluetip's Commission Info + Rules!

[mood| busy]
[music|Joe Hisaishi - Spirited Away OST]

After several years of not taking commissions, I've finally opened em back up! The commission tab on Fur Affinity doesn't seem to be working lately and I have absolutely no idea how to work the html cut tags on there, as well as on deviantArt, so I'll be keeping it in this journal for now!

Some of this stuff is still under construction!

Thank you to everyone in advance who comes across my page =^.^=

Commission Info/Rules

Things To Note When Commissioning Bluetip:

1) Bluetip works a full time job, therefore he will try his best to get commish work done as soon as possible.

2) Please note that Bluetip might be slightly picky when it comes to accepting subject matter and content. This means that he is very enthused to do creatures/anthro/furry versus human characters, complex mechanoid creations, objects, environments.

3) The client, (you), must wait until Bluetip has responded and replied to your note/email/PM/etc. stating whether or not he can accept your commission.

4) Bluetip feels that for the quality of work he creates and the amount of time he spends on a commission and its details, he can't undersell his art for how hard he works on a certain piece. He has been told in the past that he undersells his work so he feels he has now set some fair prices. He's very conscious of this and the last thing he wants is to overcharge people! If you feel it might be too costly, let him know and something can be worked out! This dragon is open to haggling within reason ^__^
 

The Basics:

I am always available to be reached at: bluetip13@hotmail.com, rainepye@gmail.com or via PM on Livejournal, FA and dA.
Livejournal = bluetip_echelon
Fur Affinity = Bluetip
deviantArt = The-Bluetip

What Will Bluetip Draw?

I will draw most kinds of furry art - anthropomorphic and feral animals and a wide variety of creatures as well as Pokemon/Digimon. I am open to erotic/adult artwork (fetish depends, ie I will do vore, watersports, kinky, etc) if requested, however, I still reserve the right to reject a commission request depending on whether the subject matter/content may make me feel uncomfortable.

Reference/character sheets as well as certain fanart is also do-able!

What Bluetip Will NOT Draw:

Any racism, pedophilia, extreme violence/torture, etc. If you're not sure, feel free to ask!

Stronger points: Creatures, dragons, beasts, organic anatomy, animals, vicious subject matter,

Weaker points: Perspective, detailed backgrounds, humanoids, technical such as cars, robots.


Payment:

Payment will be due up-front before any work begins on your commission. I accept Paypal worldwide for your convenience but can also make exceptions!

You will have 2 weeks to send payment after being put on the list. If payment is not received within that time you will be removed to make room for people who ARE ready for a commission.

Paypal is: bluetip13@hotmail.com

You MUST ensure that you include your username, (be it deviantArt, Fur Affinity, etc.) so that I know who this commission is for. Please include this in the SUBJECT line. It's too exhausting to search 5,000 emails in the attempts to find your payment receipt!


Copyright + Reproduction Rights:

You may use the commission for any non-commercial purposes (websites, avatars, personal prints, etc.). You paid for the art, therefore, it belongs to you.

The reproduction rights are NOT included in a commission. Commercial re-use (selling prints, using for print products you are selling) without discussion with the artist is strictly prohibited. If you are planning on selling prints, etc. this must be discussed beforehand.


Commission Process:

If you've received a commission slot, I will need your character's description and obviously, the more detail and refs, the better. It is important to tell me everything that will aid in a closer resemblance to your character. If you've forgotten something important, I normally won't change this once the sketching stage has been completed. Character sheets are always welcome as well.

A regular commission process from Bluetip normally takes this path:

Once payment arrives on my end, I will begin the process! I will draw a sketch of the commissioned artwork according to your description and send it to you for any corrections and approval. Once the coloring process has begun, I will not be able to do any major changes without extra costs. Of course it is not mandatory that the sketch be sent if you don't really care and are just waiting for the final piece.

When you are content with the finished piece, the artwork will be sent to you, either the high resolution files or the original artwork when applicable. Shipping is always at your own risk since I have absolutely no control over the postal system once it's out of my paws. Additional protection/insurance for the artwork is optional and most definitely available!

Shipping costs are NOT included in the commission's price and will be calculated depending on your exact location.


Price Estimations:

This is important. It is possible that price adjustments be made accordingly depending on the amount of details (ex. if you want a background with billions of flowers or berries/etc, or if you have a much more complex character, especially when wearing tons of jewellery, gear and so on).

The price on your commission, as discussed above, can vary depending on the detail, subject matter, complexity, number of characters etc. This can be further discussed during the early stages of your piece. Additional characters will be discussed during this time as well considering an additional character, such as a small mouse versus a large beast or dragon, is very different and thus, will be priced accordingly.
