Terms of Service


General rule

  • All commissions and adopts purchases only include the digital file of the illustration. By sending the payment, I have the right to assume that you are aware of what you're doing, you must be over 18 to purchase my products. 

  • All prices listed are for personal use only. You can print out the illustration for yourself but you can not sell it to anyone else. Please request a quote if you want to commission for commercial purposes. ​

  • Paypal fee is included in the listed price.

  • I will send the digital file that you have paid for via the platform that you have contacted me with in the first place. Please make sure that I am added on your contact list to avoid my message been blocked.

  • I am not liable for keeping the finished commission or adopt file. It is your own responsibility to save the file to a secure place.

  • I have the right to reject a commission if I think it does not suit my style or I'm not confident with the theme. Please do not take it as an insult in any way.


  • The digital illustration that I sell is categorised as a "customised product", therefore there will be no refund provided after I have started inking, even if you have changed your mind or simply does not like the result. The product does not have any resell value nor can it be "restocked" or used for other customers.

  • When I send you the sketch screenshot, you will have the chance to opt-out and end this commission request without any charges. However, you will not be able to use the sketch in any way or form. 

  • You have the chance to provide feedback to my work when I send you the update screenshot. Please utilise this chance to shape the illustration to your liking. 

  • Commissions generally take 1-2 weeks to finish(when there is no queue), I will try my best to finish it as early as possible, please inform me ahead of time if you have a deadline that I need to meet. 

  • I have the right the upload the resized version of the commission to social media. The private commission will cost extra 5USD.

Deviant Art Adopts

  • Hold is available with a valid reason

  • Only claim or bid adopt that you can afford, I will blacklist any user that back off payments without further notices.

  • Please understand the idea of "adopt" before you claim, you are adopting the design I made, not any physical animal/human.

  • There will be no refund for adopts even if you have changed your mind.

  • Resell price should never be higher than the original price.

  • Please inform me when you are transferring the adopt's ownership.

  • You can change the design however you want after you have paid for the adopt.

Usage Permission

  • Please never claim the design as your own creation. 

  • You do not need to ask me if you want to use my fan art for social media icon or wallpaper. Credits are appreciated however not necessary in this situation. 

  • Do not use a commission artwork for any purposes if you are not the one who requested it. 

  • You can repost my artworks with proper credits linking to the original source.

Commission process

Explanation for new clients 

Step 1 Email

Fill in the request form and send it to me via Deviant Art notes or email. I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Step 2 Sketching

After I accepted your commission, I will give you my payment information and start sketching.

A WIP will be sent to you before I start inking. Please point out any pose, character expression problem, and I will fix it before I start inking.

There will be no major changes* after you have confirmed the sketch.

Step 3 Inking

I will start inking after I received the payment.

An inked(line art) version of your commission will be sent to you after a few days; this will be the last WIP you will see before it finishes. Please point out any missing or incorrect detail. 
Remember to reply to my email/note again so I can start colour in.

Step 4 Colour in

The commission will be done after I finished colour in. I will send you the file via DA stash or email.

Thank you for commissioning me! 

*major changes include changing pose or outfit, adding new character or item. I will charge an extra 30%-40% for these types of changes.
I will accept minor changes such as changing facial expression.
