What I will and will not do:
• I can't draw humanoid faces, so I'll only be doing animal/furry/creature type of characters. But as long as it's not humanoid, I can try. Even things like insects would be cool.
• I will absolutely never do anything NSFW. The only exception would be the occasional blood and gore, if you consider that NSFW.
Also here's my Terms of Service:
Updated April 2021
By accepting to make business with me, the customer agrees with all of the following:
• Payment is in USD and through PayPal ONLY.
• Payment is taken UPFRONT ALWAYS.
• A PayPal INVOICE will be sent as a link or to the email you give me.
• You can contact me through Telegram (@ShenzaiBird) or email (mainarashenzai gmail.com) for fastest replies. Notes or comments on other social medias might not be checked as often.
• After the details of the commission have been cleared, I will send you an invoice to the email you will give me or a direct link to the invoice and I will add you to my queue. • I will only start any work on a piece after payment is received.
• I will send you at least one Work-In-Progress sketch in which I can do any changes you need. After this sketch is approved, I'll keep working on it until completion whenever I can. Additional WIP stages might be sent upon request or if I have any question about design/preferences.
• A commission should generally be completed within one to two months after I start working on it, sometimes less or more depending on commission type and my queue. If any circumstances come up that will cause me to delay your commission, I'll try to contact you and inform you of the reasons.
• Once a commission is completed, I'll send you a full resolution file and you can share it online on your gallery or wherever you wish as long as proper credit is given.
• I, as the artist, have all right to distribute and use the art for sales and self-promotion.
• I have the right to refuse any commission for any reason.
• I have the right to set and change my prices at any time, for any reason.
• I have the right to add, discontinue, and offer products and services at my discretion.
• I have the right to work on commissions in the order that seems most efficient for both myself and my clients.
• I have the right to alter these Terms of Service at any time, for any reason.
• NO ONE is allowed sell, mass produce, commercialize, redistribute, or use my artwork without my complete written permission.
• If the client changes their mind about the commission, they can ask for a refund for up to a week after payment is sent IF I have not yet started any work on the commission.
• Refunds might not be full price due to currency conversions and/or fees.
To commission me, send a message on my telegram (@ShenzaiBird). Alternatively, there's my twitter (@ShenzaiBird) but it may take longer for me to see the message.
You can see my current commission queue on my Trello!
Character design and clothes design are free of charge! Just give me a description or some general references and I can work with it. This applies to all commission types!
At the moment, additional characters in the same picture are charged just as much as they would be if they were in separate pictures, with the exception of poses in which the additional character(s) doesn't show up fully. (For example, a full-body commission, but the second character is behind a table and only half their body show up, this second character will be charged as half-body.)
I am weird and I love doing discounts for certains species and stuff like that. Currently, I have the following discounts:
• 15% off for bird/gryphon/avian characters with wings. Yes, here we have a reverse wing-tax because I actually enjoy drawing feathered wings! (only applies if the wings of the character will be visible though)
• 10% off for characters that are just weird and it would be hard to find an artist that's capable/willing to do them, or that would be charged for complexity a lot. Got any insect-like creatures with freaky legs, multi-headed beasts with many horns or a character with an ungodly amount of wings? I'm up to the challenge! >:3
These discount apply to all commission types currently in this page.
I also offer a discount of 10% off for patrons of tiers Alphyn and above. This discount currently stacks to the previously listed ones! (So for example, a patron with a winged-bird character would get 15% off for their bird, then 10% off the already discounted value.)
Here are my currently available commission types:
