Revision: 1.23 | Updated: 15 October 2022

A. General

  1. By purchasing, you get the digital file(s) of the commission. There is no physical item(s) to be delivered.
  2. Due to the nature of the commission as custom orders, I cannot issue a refund. Should there be mishaps and circumstances causing me to unable to finish the commission, I will issue a refund according to the progress that has been made in the commission. I, however, commit to finish the commissions within a reasonable timeframe (from a few days to some weeks, depending on the amount of the work itself).
  3. Prices are indicative, the final price may be different depending on the request itself.
  4. Credits are appreciated but not necessary. You can put "by Konayachi" or to tag me on platforms I'm on with "@Konayachi".
  5. Without purchasing the Extras, commissions are strictly for personal use only.
  6. There will be a stamp + finishing date of production on each illustration. Rest assured that this will not obstruct the illustration in any way.
  7. Removal of stamp is prohibited unless you get for the Stamp Removal upgrade.
  8. I will not do NSFW. I don't have much experience with it, but I'm always open for discussions.

B. Ordering Steps

  1. First, read this Terms of Service page completely. By ordering, you acknowledge that you have read and agreed with my Terms of Service.
  2. Choose the commission types that you want from the commissions page prices list. The availability and prices change over the time, so please keep that in mind.
  3. I may refuse to work on the commission if I think I cannot deliver my best to your expectations due to my skills limit.
  4. Create a new project in the commission type that you want to initiate order. Discussions and initial sketches will be carried there afterwards.
  5. When we are both happy with the sketches, I will put you on the waitlist. I will send you an invoice to pay when I'm ready to work on your commission right away. The work will immediately start upon receiving the payment.
  6. WIP is available upon requests during discussion process. Without requests, I may not provide WIP at all because I work in a fast manner.
  7. Depending on the work queue, complexity of the commissions and the quantity of your commissions, the commissions may take a few days or up to several weeks. If you wish to tighten the deadline, let me know and I will arrange it for an extra fee.
  8. I am open to some small revisions for free (reasonably, 1-3x).
  9. The finished files will be full-sized + date and stamp as my signature. If you buy copyright/ownership transfer licence, there will be no date and stamp on the illustration.

C. Rights and Licensing

  1. By default, the artist (Konayachi) is the owner of the commissioned work. I may put the commissioned works on my portfolio or my website. I will always write your provided name/@username attached on the work. Let me know if you want to be addressed as anonymous in this matter.
  2. All commissions are purposed for personal use only. Personal use includes: PC wallpaper, phone wallpaper, self-print for your own belongings or any use with no profit made.
  3. I also offer upgrades which will allow you to use the commissions more widely:
    • Commercial Use A (your commissions will be used as part of your branding; e.g. banner, avatar, mascot, icon, graphics, etc.) = final price x 2
    • Commercial Use B (you can make unlimited profit from the commissions, reprint it as many as you want, etc.) = final price x 10
    • Exclusivity (your commissions will not appear on my website and SNS for n years) = final price + (final price x (2 x n years)/10)
    • Stamp Removal = final price x 15
    • Copyright (ownership transfer) = final price x 20
    If you are confused, reach me out and I'll help you figuring things out!
  4. Commercial Use A upgrade allows you to use the commissioned works as part of your branding. Allowed uses include, but not limited to profile banner, avatar, mascot, icon, graphics, etc. for commercial activities.
  5. Commercial Use B upgrade provides you perpetual, irrevocable rights over the use of the work. However, it is not ownership transfer. This licence is suitable for mass printing production. Commercial Use includes: merchandises production (t-shirt, stickers, etc.), business logo, commercial posters, anything which will generate profit for you. Purchasing Commercial Use B grants you the right from Commercial Use A as well.
  6. Exclusivity upgrade has expiry date based on how many years you purchased it for. Exclusivity will keep your commissions private for certain number of years (n) which will fully depend on how many years do you wish to purchase the upgrade.
  7. Stamp Removal upgrade removes my stamp and date on the commissioned works. Commercial Use is offered for free with this upgrade.
