THE ART OF STEPHANIE STASIUK MONK
TERMS OF SERVICE
I reserve the right to post sketches, process documents and videos, and the completed artwork to my website, art accounts/social media accounts, and Patreon. I will tag the commissioner and owner of the character in my posts, so please provide social media accounts that I can use for tagging. If you do not want to be tagged in these posts that is perfectly fine. If you are interested in a private commission please note that there is an additional fee for private commissions. If the commissioner is not the owner of the character, please make sure that the commissioner has the owners permission to commission the character. I reserve the right to decline commissions without explanation.
My commissions are digital artworks, and generally they will be delivered as a .PNG or .JPG/.JPEG file to the commissioner. If you require the .PSD file that will need to be agreed upon beforehand and may affect the price of the commission.
I consider my artwork to be SFW (Safe For Work) and because of this, any artistic nudity will be censored and artistic nudity will only be drawn if it is not pornographic in nature. I can depict scenes with violence and blood but I will not draw extreme gore. I will not draw anything that promotes discrimination. Please do not edit my artwork in any way (with the exception of cropping or resizing for banners, icons, etc). Do not remove my signature from the artwork. My artwork cannot be minted as an NFT or included in any blockchain technology. My artwork cannot be included in a dataset used to train AI technologies.
Commercial rates differ from personal rates. The pricing on this page is used for examples of personal commissions only, so please don't use the pricing on this page as your pricing model for commercial work. Additionally, personal commissions cannot be used for commercial use after they have been delivered (for example, you cannot receive a personal commission and use the artwork for prints, shirts, merch, or any other avenue that generates revenue from the artwork as this would be considered commercial). For commercial rates, please fill out the form on the Book a Commission page to discuss your project.
All payments will be taken in CAD via PayPal or Credit Card. The commission must be paid in full before I will start working on it. Your position in my queue is based on (a) when the invoice was paid and (b) if the artwork has a deadline. As soon as the invoice is paid your commission will be added to my queue.*
*Being sent an invoice is not a guarantee that you will be getting a commission slot. The only way to guarantee that you will be getting a commission slot is by paying your invoice while my commissions are open. If you try to pay your invoice after I have closed all of the slots I will refund the payment and you will not get a slot this round.
You can receive a full refund on a commission up until the point where you have received the first sketch from me. If you have received the first sketch from me, you are able to receive a 50% refund if you would like to cancel the commission at this stage. Once lineart, shading, or colouring has started you will go longer be able to receive a refund.
If I agree to take on your commission, you will receive an invoice from me. Once paid, I will provide you first with a rough sketch and then with a refined sketch of the commission and you will have the opportunity to request revisions. Please ensure that all revision requests are made during the sketching stages. Once a sketch has been approved, any additional revisions may require additional fees. However, I will be happy to correct any mistakes at no additional fee at any stage of the commission process (for example, if I miss an important accessory). There will be no fees if I ask for your input on a change that I would like to make.
After the refined sketch is approved the next stage will depend on the commission type. In most cases it will either be lines and base colours or a colour test. Once the colours are approved the next stage will be shading. I may provide more updates than the ones I've listed here, especially if I would like your input. I do try to at least provide a rough sketch, refined sketch, colours, and shading update before sending the final files. Here are some examples of what those updates may look like:
