Terms and Conditions:
If you have a problem with any of these terms, they may be changed if discussed with me prior to paying for your commissioned piece.
1. GENERAL TERMS
All paintings/drawings will include a signature mark that you may not remove.
I might record the 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 painting for any reason.
The currency accepted is USD and can be paid through PayPal or Square payment service.
Commissions can be paid either 100% upfront or split 50% upfront and 50% after sketch approval.
Don't send me any payment before we have agreed to a contract and requested you to send me the payment.
3. PROCESS AND DELIVERY
I will 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 I make it just right for you!
The amount of reviews depends on the complexity of the work.
During the reviews, you will see work-in-progress and these images will usually include a watermark and be smaller than the finished piece.
The time it takes to finish your commission varies from 1 week - 3 months depending on factors such as health, the complexity of the commissioned piece, other work, and exhibitions.
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 completed painting or full-resolution image. Note that if you commission a physical painting the cost to ship will be calculated once the piece is finished. Painting weight can change depending on whether or not a texture has been used. Depending on where you live, we will arrange an invoice for the shipping cost.
You get 3 rounds of changes on the commissioned piece included in the price.
A fee will be added if you want something changed on the final painting - unless a misunderstanding from my side has been made.
If you wish for me to change something in the painting you have previously approved, I will charge you a fee to change it. The amount of the extra charge depends on the change you want me to make and is usually based on an hourly wage.
If your reference is unclear to start with changes will come at an extra charge.
5. COPYRIGHT / USAGE POLICY
I, Ashley Wright (the artist), claim the rights to the produced drawing, not the buyer. Therefore I am allowed to use the copyrighted artwork to:
Promote me 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.
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 its use/distribution unless otherwise agreed upon (rights to the image for your own non-personal use may be purchased at any time).
6. CUSTOMER SATISFACTION
I will do everything I can to make my customers happy!
If you have a problem with anything in regard to the commissioned piece please tell me right away so we can find a solution together.
I am willing to change some of my terms for you if you ask before I start on your commission. If you, e.g., do not want me to post your art anywhere, we can discuss this.
7. 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/Square Refund. I will transfer the money back to you myself.
If you request a Paypal chargeback/Square Refund 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/Square with our conversations in which we talk about the commission as evidence that I have completed work for you. Furthermore, you will be blacklisted for commissioning me again.
If the buyer breaks any of the points stated above they will lose all the beforementioned rights to the artwork commissioned by me, Ashley Wright (the artist), and I will have the right to profit further from the commissioned artwork in any way I see fit. If you have a problem with any of these statements, they may be changed if discussed with me prior to paying your commissioned piece.
What do you get?
Drafts/mockups that you must decide which one I should continue with (depending on the complexity of the commission there might be fewer or more drafts)
Sketch and/or final sketches that you must accept before I continue the work
Insight and involvement in color plan (depending on the complexity of the commissioned piece)
Full-resolution file (approx. 210 x 297 mm at 300 DPI) of final drawing or Physical Gallery Wrapped Canvas with 2" sides. Final file formats are usually PNG.
