OPEN FOR COMMISSIONS!

I've got some commissions open! I've got examples of my work below as well as my Terms and my prices! Please consider commissioning me! Also, please read through all my terms before commissioning me! Thanks!


RULES


WHAT I WILL DRAW: NSFW, mild gore, anime, OCs (mine or your own), fanart


WHAT I WILL NOT DRAW: Anything with illegal elements (such as child pornography or bestiality), full - blown furries or scalies (not referring to humanoid characters with animal features!), excessive gore, art that promotes hate or witch hunts someone


LEGALITIES


I. General


When requesting a commission, be concise, yet crystal clear about what you want! Send me as many references as you can, and as a general rule of thumb, a wall of images is better than a wall of text. If you exhibit any behavior that isn't professional, I will decline the commission. Follow all rules I've listed above and you should be fine.


II. Payment Methods


I accept USD (United States Dollars) [$] through PayPal transactions. I can accept no other currency at this time, and I expect commissioners to convert their currency at checkout. Full payment is accepted up front before I start any commissions.


III. Process


I'll do my best to give you updates on my progress, whether through here or through another means of communication. I will give updates in writing or through low-res, watermarked WIPs if the piece is taking longer than normal until the piece is finished. I'm going to communicate with you to the best of my ability to ensure I am creating exactly what you want. I will do my best to update if something is preventing me from delivering by the due date, etc. The time that it takes to do a commission depends on the piece, but I will try not to take longer than 3 months on one piece, and the average piece should take between 1-3 days. Factors like how many commissions I'm taking at a time should be considered when you commission me, be sure to ask how many slots are already filled!


IV. Customer Satisfaction


I'm gonna do everything in my power to make sure that every customer that commissions me is 100% satisfied. After a commission is finished, ONLY MINOR CHANGES are allotted without an additional fee. This includes but is not limited to small coloring/lining mistakes. If you want anything significantly greater than that to be changed, it will be extra, no exceptions. This includes but is not limited to an outfit change, outfit addition or subtraction, background change or anything that makes me have to redraw it completely.  If your reference was not clear from the start, you are not allowed minor changes without a fee. It is detrimental that you have a clear reference and know exactly what you want when you commission me.


V. Copyright/Usage Policy


I hold all the rights to every drawing I make, not the commissioner. This means I am allowed to use the copyrighted artwork for:


- Promoting myself with in any place or site

- Publishing books

- Display it anywhere to my liking.

- Post it wherever I want


The commissioner is allowed to:


- Use the copyrighted artwork for personal use only unless agreed otherwise

- Print the art, and claim the right of their character(s) but not the drawing itself

- Use the art to promote themselves with proper credit given to the artist


If you break the copyright infringement in any way, every right you had to the drawing will be retracted.


The following is considered Copyright infringement:


Reproducing/using the copyrighted artwork commercially. (Meaning making money off it in any way)

Taking Credit for the creation of the artwork.

Removing any watermarks/signatures. 

Altering the artwork without my, the artist's, consent.


A Purchase of Commercial rights to the artwork will always be 300% of original price.

With commercial rights you are allowed to make any sort of merchandise with the artwork.

Use it in books, covers, as props, change it to your liking and promote your own brand with it.

Credit is still required for usage of the artwork, even if altered or edited.


VI. Cancelling/Refund Policy


I have the right to decline or cancel and refund the money for a commission at any time.

You have no right to cancel or demand a refund from the artist under any circumstances after payment has been made.

If money has not yet been sent the commissioner has the right to cancel the commission.


If you file a chargeback against me, your right to everything I have ever made for you will be retracted and I have the right to sell the copyrighted artwork to new buyers.

You will forbidden to ever commission me (GraySlate) again.

Your name will be publicly posted everywhere I want for others to watch out for. 

I also have every right to file a complaint and I have all the right to the money you have given me.


Any questions and/or concerns should be brought to me (GraySlate) when first requesting a commission.

When I look back on my forum posts I realize that I always have zero luck fostering supportive discussion. I can't tell if this is a problem with me anymore, as I have a problem with my warped perception already from being gaslighted and living in an abusive home, but I'm slowly starting to think it's not. I've heard people say over and over that DeviantArt is a really toxic place and that the community sucks, and I really didn't believe it since I always had such positive experiences on here. That is until I started going to the forums. Let's just say I would rather have 20 more years of closed species and kin drama than ever go to the forums again. It's kind of a shock to me that the community in that part of dA is so uncaring and volatile, and that I barely hear anyone talk about this problem.


This might seem out of nowhere to some so let me fill you in on what went down last night. Last night I created this forum post after a really terrifying incident with my dad. It's completely detailed in that post but the TL;DR version is that my dad blew up on me, yelled in my face and backed me into a corner and made me feel like I was going to get hit, only because I said I didn't want to upgrade to the latest iPhone. I didn't even say that I didn't want it in a demeaning or nasty way, he just lost his temper and made me feel unsafe. I really needed to get that off my chest and out of my system because I don't really have anyone I can talk about this with IRL and I thought that sharing that to the forums would make me feel a bit better.


I have never been more wrong about anything in my life. I checked the replies to the thread today and I was absolutely assblasted to read what people had been saying. Everyone in the comments was berating me, telling me I was an ungrateful brat, and that I should just suck it up, even though my dad threatened me and made me feel unsafe in my own home. Out of all of them, I only read one, one comment that was in full support of me. It felt like people just didn't read the part where I said that I felt suicidal because I felt trapped and I felt like either killing myself or running away was what I had to do to avoid another situation like the one from last night. To those people: Just say my dad should've beat me and go.


It's heartbreaking to see everyone jeering and laughing at me in the comments when I posted something from when I was so vulnerable and afraid. Even when people were commenting "don't kill yourself," it felt so backhanded because I knew these same people would tell me to do a flip off a bridge because I'm apparently so spoiled. You wanna know something? This isn't about the iPhone upgrade anymore. I legitimately don't care about anything tech or Christmas related or what have you. My main issue is that my dad screamed me into submission and made me have a breakdown over something so stupidly minor. Worse yet is that my dad made a non-apology to me today where he said he was (allegedly) sorry for yelling at me but not sorry for why he did it? He made a bunch of excuses for lashing out at me, as abusers often do, and I don't feel like he said sorry to me at all. I truly don't think he'll even remember he blew up at me, but I'll remember it til the day I die, whether that's by my own hands or not.


I've learned my lesson about this, then. The forums are full of toxic, vile people who will side with my abusive parents because they take away that I'm a spoiled brat. I'm absolutely not, I don't ask for jack shit, I was even prepared to have a phone with a non-functioning camera and shattered screen for the next millennia. I always buy my own things when I want or need them, and I really think of myself as a humble person who doesn't whine or complain like other people do. I always do the chores my parents ask of me without backtalk, I do everything they say, and I'm grateful they put me and my brother through college and that I can still live at home while I go to school. The thing I don't appreciate is the permanent psychological damage I've received from them and people saying that I should just let that shit happen because I deserve it. I formed a mood disorder at the hands of my parents and it's something that's used in their mind games and manipulation, what do these sick people have to show for themselves? I'm done with people justifying my abusers and I want to find a community that doesn't allow this kind of vile derision.


I got so worked up I started sobbing as I type this up, I feel like such an idiot for trusting the forums in the first place. I've made the decision that I won't be posting in the forums again, for anything ever, and I'm going to work more on boosting myself on my own page and my other social media that haven't turned into vacuous holes. I feel small and insignificant again, and tomorrow might be different, but for now, I'm still reeling from the fact that the majority of dA forum users would say I deserve to live in fear of my abusive father.


Anyway, you can go in the forum post and shit all over me too and call me an entitled and selfish brat too if you want. I have no self-esteem already so it probably won't hurt more than it already does.


Also this might be my last vent on Newgrounds since it didn't go over well with people here either. Thank you for your input.
