Thank you for your interest in my art! Here's a step-by-step guide:
Still testing the waters, so it's only point commissions for now.
Step 1. Tell me your budget. We'll work out the art details from there. I don't set prices depending on whether the figure I draw is full body or half body or only a bust shot because I prefer to draw according to my inspiration and like the greatest freedom there. My point commissions are very cheap, so don't be scared.
Step 2. Tell me what you want! I do human OCs, still life, conceptualizations, costume designs, and illustrations. If there's something else you'd like, feel free to ask!
Step 3. I either accept or decline. Once I accept, I would prefer if you didn't change your mind and back out. If you do back out and the artwork is already in progress, I reserve the right to see it through to the end and to post it. OCs will not be officially credited.
Refusals will be either because I don't draw what you would like to see, or because the project does not interest me. I like to give everybody the utmost that I can do, and loving the project is certainly and important step towards that!
Step 4. Work will begin. Please let me know if you would like to see the work-in-progress.
Step 5. Finished work will be posted. I will mention you in the artist's comments. You're free to use the finished work any way you like.
Step 6. Negotiation for final price. If the finished product is simple, I set a maximum amount based on the client's budget and the client can pay any amount he/she likes up to the maximum price set. If the result is more detailed, I'll fix a negotiable asking price.
Step 7. Payment.
Step 8. Everybody happy!
Note or comment your request to trade. I do human OCs, still life, conceptualizations, costume designs, and illustrations. If there's something else you'd like, feel free to ask!
I reserve the right to refuse if I don't draw what you're requesting, if what you request does not interest me, or if I do not like your style. Also, at the risk of sounding mean, before you ask to trade, please consider skill level. I do try very hard to give only the best artwork, and would like the same in return. The trades I get in return all go to a special favourites folder, which I like to keep personally satisfying.
If I refuse a trade because I do not like your style or because I feel that there is a disparity in...experience...feel free to instead request from or to commission me.

NB: I have opened requests with the aim of offering art to artists who would like them but legitimately cannot afford them. So if you take commissions but ask me for a request, I will most likely refuse unless I really like the project offered. Same if you close requests and ask me for one. I'm just trying to be fair.
Commissions, trades, and requests are open all year round, but work will begin only during my school breaks. If there's anything else I missed, you're most welcome to ask. Thanks for reading!
