Personal use includes: Social media profile pictures, wallpapers, personal website display, or physical prints that are not for sale or distribution to any other party (If have need for other uses, please email me for clarification).Any Work done or made available to the client must NOT be used for AI (Artificial Intelligence), Machine Learning, AI/ML Training, NFT, blockchain or any for profit platforms or purposes, and in any future technology. Such usage is completely prohibited and will result in legal action taken.Clients may not claim Work as their own or anyone else’s and therefore must credit me as the Artist as "samijen".Payments, Cancellation, RefundsBefore starting the project, commissions are to be paid upfront full price before starting. Invoices will be sent over once I receive your form submission. Do not send a payment without my request.If the Client requests cancellation, a full refund will be given only during the sketching stage. Once Work begins after the sketching stage, refunds are not possible unless initiated by the Artist.If for any unforeseen reason I cannot complete the Work, I will take initiative to inform you and provide a partial refund if Work done up to this point is accepted or full refund.Prices are in USD, and paid via the clients preferred payment method (Paypal, Stripe, Ko-fi).By engaging on any project, once Work has started, or transactions have been made through Paypal, Stripe, or Ko-fi the Client acknowledges the product and deliverables are DIGITAL and there is no physically shipped goods to receive.

“Characters design” fee is if you don’t have any solid character references, and would like me to design your character based off of a description and some photo references. We'll take the time to visualize your character together before getting to the actual commission :)

Commissions are to be paid upfront in full price before starting!
✦ What tablet do you use?
- iPad Pro 12.9inch (6th Gen). Occasionally I will use the XPPen Artist 10 Pen Display (2nd gen) when drawing on my laptop.
✦ What art program?
- Clip Studio Paint (Pro version).
✦ Where can I send you a small tip?
- On BMaC or Ko-fi.
✦ Can you teach me how to draw?
- You can buy my art class on CLASS101. It's not live, so you can study at your own pace. I'll also give you full feedback as you learn! Alternatively, I have a few tutorials on Youtube.
✦ Can I repost your art?
- Depends. You'll have to ask me personally which art you want to repost and where you'll post it. I'd like to be in control of where my art goes and seen by who. Reposts on Pinterest is fine though, as it's use as a reference and resource site for other artists!
✦ What about social media/discord profile pics/header or phone wallpaper?
- Sure! Feel free to use for that.
✦ When will you open for commissions?
- Not sure, it's very spontaneous.
