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!


It would be helpful if you sent people this commission sheet I made if they're interested in commissioning me. I would appreciate shares of this sheet and everything below in general.


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.

Yeah I know, the title isn't the most clever nor my best, but I think it's the best descriptor of what I'm gonna talk about tonight.


I don't think I've really made it that much of a secret as everything about me is almost always going to become public knowledge, but I am a LaVeyan Satanist. If that's your first time learning this, welcome. I won't go into huge detail about what that is, The Church of Satan is carrying that torch for me just fine, but in a nutshell, LaVeyan Satanism is an atheistic religion (though religion is used very loosely, I'd call it more an anti-religion than anything) that uses the figure of Satan as a symbol of the core values of the practitioners. I follow the Eleven Satanic Rules of the Earth, the Nine Tenets of Satanism, and though I don't have the Satanic Bible, I'll purchase it in the future as it's a $10.99 paperback. Might even get the sick CoS membership card later on in life as well.


That's a very cursory explanation of what Satanism is and I'd be more than happy to provide more information, but that's not the focus of what I'm writing about now. I'm talking about what I can only call Satan-shaming. This is a goofy term I coined for what I've been experiencing from not only ill-informed strangers, but from my closest friends as well. In essence, Satan-shaming is a phenomenon that occurs when I bring up Satanism in any context, and without fail, someone I know will either make a quip or an extensive rant about how LaVeyan Satanism is nothing but edgy garbage.

While I understand that yes, there are other Satanists that - I'm sure - go out of their way to harass religious people and they might be reeling from that, I'm a bit at a loss as to why I get thrown under the bus so hard. I never have time to explain why I chose this religion, why I like the rules and tenets, I just get bombarded with the sentiment that Satanism is edgy bullshit.


Like I said before, it's one thing to hear this from strangers who are just, to put it bluntly, dumber than a box of tacks, but it's a total other thing to hear Satanism is the religion of those with a low IQ from people I consider friends. I'm going to get a bit personal here and fill you in on some backstory about me and why I chose to follow LaVey's teachings. I've gone into this before; my parents, especially my mother, are abusive people. They are also very hardcore conservative evangelical Christians. To condense the two decades I've been alive, I became jaded and distant from Christianity, not only because of the bigotry and abuse I faced from my parents, but because I was taking issue with the Bible and Abrahamic religion in general. If you've been raised Christian or even religious, you're gonna know what I'm talking about when I say that I wasn't allowed to question anything. I wasn't allowed to have philosophical debates (which is something I actually like to do), I was just supposed to believe in something without question and blindly believe in something that I couldn't see. It got worse when I was institutionalized in 2017 and I peaked in my "I'm so sick and fucking tired of hearing 'just pray!' when I literally have a mental disorder that won't go away because of sky daddy" beliefs. I was already on the road to being an atheist already because I just couldn't agree with the religion in good faith (no pun intended)...and then LaVeyan Satanism shows up.


I had been off-and-on again with Satanism up until, I'd say...2018? I had already been distancing myself from Christianity, I stopped being forced to go to church (thank..Satan?) and when I re-read the Eleven Satanic Rules of the Earth, I cemented that this was going to be the set of beliefs I wanted to maintain for my life going forward. It was a very personal decision and a very cathartic one. I felt like I was really discovering myself and I was finally able to choose something to follow for myself, as opposed to being forced into a belief that was, in my eyes, a shield and fall-back for discriminating against others and prejudice against marginalized people.


When I get told my beliefs are just edgy poser shit, I take it more personally than I honestly should. It's something that really gets to me considering how close I want to follow these rules and tenets, and I really hate that even my friends want to shit on me for it. I know it's probably that I'm just too sensitive about something that doesn't matter, but I really do wish my friends would stop assuming shit about something that's very personal and dear to me in my journey as a person. I really wish they'd sit down and just talk with me about what I believe and why instead of insulting my intelligence or laughing at me. It's starting to wear me down and honestly? It really hurts.
