Private commissions

If you want to hire me for a private commission please read through this page to get an overview of my services and current rates.

If you are looking to hire me for commercial/non-personal purposes, you can see apart from this page and instead please write me an e-mail over here


About commissioning me

Before you order, please make sure to have read my Terms of Service futher down below. These terms apply to private/personal commissions only. This information is NOT applicable for commercial work, therefore the art can only be used for the client’s personal purposes.

When I have commission slots open, you can use the form at the bottom of this page to order. Please be aware that the form is just sending me an e-mail with your commission request. Once I have recieved your e-mail I will get back to you with an estimate of the final price which you then agree upon. If I cannot take your commission for any reason I will let you know as well.

All prices below are base prices and include a single character. Things that might increase the price is complex character designs, not being able to provide a good visual reference, complex backgrounds, amount of detail in the image in general.


Character

Single character - fullbody. The character is fully rendered. My style is typically stylized/cartoony characters with semi-realistic rendering. Turnarounds are also possible but the price varies a lot depending on the complexity of the character. Ask for this when you place the commission order :)

Simple backgrounds are either a solid color/shade, simple symbols or a gradient. Detailed backgrounds can be as simple or complex as wanted. The price will adjust accordingly.

Estimated price - simple background: $125

CHARACTER - DETAILED BACKGROUND:

Estimated price - detailed background: $175


Halfbody character

Single character - halfbody. Usually cropped at the waist or thighs depending on the pose and character’s design. Plain/solid color or very simple background. The character is fully rendered. My style is typically stylized/cartoony characters with semi-realistic rendering.

Detailed backgrounds can be as simple or complex as wanted. The price will adjust accordingly.

 

HALFBODY CHARACTER - DETAILED BACKGROUND ONLY:

Portrait / Bust

Single character - headshot/bust. Usually cropped around the shoulders / chest area. The character is fully rendered. My style is typically stylized/cartoony characters with semi-realistic rendering.

Outfit of the Day - Drawing

Do you want me to paint you in a cute or rad outfit you wore? I have a special commission category just for this purpose! I will turn you into a semi-realistic cartoon character and draw you from the reference you send me. Please be aware that I will not make any major changes from the reference (outfit change, hair change, etc.). An OOTD-painting is will be referencing directly from the image you send me.

About OOTD orders:

  • Please only send one image - and send me the one that shows your outfit best

  • To order an e.g. a fullbody OOTD drawing, you must be able to provide a fullbody reference of your outfit (no additional photos of boots, accessories, etc.)

  • You are allowed to send me a fullbody reference but order just a halfbody.

  • You will get the standalone drawing I made of you as well as the side-by-side picture with your reference.

  • Please be aware that I post a lot of my work on my website and social media pages. I might post yours as well along with your reference.

OOTD - SIMPLE BACKGROUND ONLY:

 Estimated price - halfbody - approx. knee-up: $90

 Estimated price - fullbody - displays the entire outfit: $110


Terms of Service

If you have a problem with any of these statements, they may be changed if discussed with me prior to ordering your commissioned piece.

 

1. GENERAL TERMS

  • All drawings will include a subtle signature that you may not remove.

  • I might record the drawing process and post it on my youtube.

  • Prices are subject to change based on demand.

  • I have the right to reject any order that I do not feel comfortable drawing for any reason.

  • Don't send me any payment before I have agreed to give you a slot 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!

  • Amount of reviews depend 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 1 week - 3 months depending on factors such as health, complexity of commissioned piece, other work and con seasons.

  • 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 full-resolution image along with a web-friendly size. Note that there is no physical product. Depending on where you live, we can arrange to print your artwork. Just ask :)

 

4. REVISIONS

  • A fee will be added if you want something changed on the final drawing - unless, of course, a misunderstanding from my side has been made.

  • If you wish for me to change something in the drawing 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, Nadia Axel (the artist), claim the rights to the produced drawing, not the buyer. Therefore I am allowed to use the copyrighted artwork to:

    • Promote myself with it everywhere

    • Publish books with it

    • Display it everywhere to my liking

    • Post it wherever I want
       

  • The buyer is allowed to:

    • Use the commissioned piece for personal use unless agreed otherwise (yes, you can upload it to your dA, Instagram, tumblr, etc.)

    • Print the artwork and claim the character(s) as their own, but not the artwork itself.

    • 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 it's 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 regards 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. I will transfer the money back to you myself.

  • If you request a Paypal chargeback 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 with our conversations in which we talk about the commission as evidence that I have completed work for you. Futhermore you will be blacklisted for commissioning me again.


If the buyer breaks any of the points stated above they will lose all beforementioned rights to the artwork commissioned by me, Nadia Axel (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 ordering your commissioned piece.
