Terms of Service

Before commissioning me, make sure to read these Terms of Service thoroughly.

 

If there are any changes you wish to make, or additions, you are welcome to discuss them with me prior to paying your commissioned piece.

 

  1. GENERAL TERMS

    • All drawings will include a subtle signature that you may not remove.

    •  I might record the drawing process and post it on my social media.

    •  Prices are subject to change based on demand.

    •  I have the right to reject any order that I do not feel comfortable drawing for any reason.

  2. ​​PAYMENT

    • Before I start your commission 

    • Currency accepted is Euros (€) and can be paid through PayPal only.

    • Commissions can be paid either 100% upfront or split 50% upfront and 50% after sketch approval.

    • Don't send me any payment before I have agreed to give you a slot and requested you to send me the payment.

  3. PROCESS AND DELIVERY

    • I’ll notify you when I have started on your commission and you, therefore, lose the rights to a refund (see point 7 further below for more info on refunds)

    • While I'm working on your commission I will make reviews with you to make sure it is to your satisfaction

    • During the reviews, I will share small images of the work with watermark to show process. You retain no rights to these work-in-progress images.

    • You will be informed at the beginning of the commission how long I expect the work to take. 

    • There might be external factors that may delay or alter the expected time such as health, the complexity of the commissioned piece, other work and con seasons.

    • If anything comes up that will slow the progress of the initially estimated delivery time I will let you know asap.

    • Once the piece is finished you will receive the full-resolution image along with a web-friendly size, or any other digital formats you personally request per time. There is no physical product produced or sent on my part as the artist.

  4. ​REVISIONS

    • No fee will be added if you want something changed during the sketching/lineart stage.

    • From the time the lineart is finished and any moment after that, a fee will be added if you want something changed (unless a misunderstanding from my side has been made)

    • The amount of the extra charge depends on the change you want me to make. You will be told the price before I make the changes. 

    •  If your reference is unclear to start with or you provided no references to begin with changes will come at an extra charge.

  5. COPYRIGHT / USAGE POLICY

    • I, Drimmolo (the artist), claim the rights to the produced drawing, not the buyer. Therefore I am allowed to use the copyrighted artwork to:

      • Promote myself with it everywhere

      • Publish books with it (artbooks, etc.)

      • Display it everywhere to my liking (website, social media, etc.)

      • Post it wherever I want

    • The buyer is allowed to:

      • Use the commissioned piece for personal use unless agreed otherwise (you can upload it on all your social media profiles, forums, etc.)

      • Print the artwork and claim the character(s) as their own, but not the artwork itself.

      • Use the artwork to promote themselves. You are not forced to give me credit when you post it but it is very appreciated.

      • Use the artwork on their Youtube channel and in monetized videos as long as the artwork itself is not the main subject for the earnings. 

    • The following is considered copyright infringement:

      • Reproducing/using the copyrighted artwork commercially - means making money off it in any way.

      • Claiming the artwork as your own

      • Removing my signature from the artwork

      • Altering the artwork without my consent

      •  I reserve the full rights to the image and it's use/distribution unless otherwise agreed upon (rights to the image for your own non-personal use may be purchased at any time).​
  6. REFUND / CANCELLATION POLICY

    • The buyer is not allowed a refund once I started working on the commission. 

    • If for any reason I am unable to start your commission you will receive a full refund.

    • If you cancel your order before I started it, you can get a full refund.

    • If you are getting a refund, do not request a Paypal chargeback. I will transfer the money back to you myself.

    • If you request a Paypal chargeback at any point when you were not allowed to ask for a refund you will lose all beforementioned rights to the commissioned piece and I will have the full right to profit further from it in any way. I will decline the chargeback and supply Paypal with our conversations in which we talk about the commission as evidence that I have completed work for you. You will be blacklisted for commissioning me again.

A short version of this Terms of Service will be provided in the PayPal invoice. This short version will list only the points regarding payment, fees, refund and copyright.

 

Both lists are to be respected and followed. If the buyer breaks any of the points stated above or in the Short PayPal invoice version, they will lose all the mentioned rights to the artwork commissioned by me, Drimmolo (the artist), and I will have the right to profit further from the commissioned artwork in any way I see fit.
