Do you do requests, gift art, or trades?
I have done gifts for people, but only my closest friends. I dont do trades or requests. I have too little time to work for free.
What wont you do?
I will not do anything distasteful, hateful or extremely gory. I will not do any form of porn (there is such thing as tasteful nudity and it is my decision what meets this standard and what doesn't). I won’t draw anything that makes no sense to me, such as Sonic characters with more anatomy then they should have.
When buying a picture from me, you must state your intentions for how you wish to use it. You are obviously free to post it on your own personal website so long as due credit is given along with a link to my DeviantART page (give the page you want linked here). If you plan to distribute the picture in the form of posters, t-shirts, or any other such media (for example, in online stores), there will be an extra charge for the right to do so. Also, if you're asking for a commission that includes your own character(s), the image stays under a shared copyright -- You retain the copyright for your own character(s), whereas I, the artist, retain the copyright of the image created. I will not deliberately redraw your character(s) without your prior consent. In return, I must ask that you please use my artwork only in ways previously agreed upon. All art is © 2008 Rachel M. Carlini. All rights reserved.
I will expect payment after verification of sketches; if your picture is a sketch, I'll need payment up front. I'll accept payment via cash or check (via Snail Mail) or Credit/EBT through Paypal.
