Let's order a commission!
Consider whether I'm the right artist for you! Do you like my chaotic and exaggerated art style? Do you want me to draw weird characters and anatomically funky creatures? I love to work with clients to get what they want, but I work best with freedom of my personal artistic expression.
Thought about it? Cool! Here's my standard procedure for commissions:
Please do not message me via social media, I WILL lose your message.
I will generally respond within 1-4 business days. If I do not respond, feel free to email me again to make sure I don't lose your message.
2. If you emailed me, the text of your email should include basic info:
This information will help me quote a price. I’ll be happy to answer any n’ all questions, and will let you know if my queue is open.
This information is part of the commission form, so if you use the form you won't miss anything.
3. For extra credit, you can include more information.
4. If I agree to your commission, I will quote you a price and ask for the email you use for invoices.
I use Square for invoices. Square does not require you to sign up, but it does require a credit card or bank account.
P*ypal can be used as a secondary option, but I prefer not to use P*ypal because they randomly freeze accounts and I will not use it for NSFW art.
Payment plans can be worked out for commissions over $100.
Once your invoice is paid, I will start sketching!
5. I will send you a sketch for confirmation.
Let me know any changes you'd like at this stage, and I'll happily accommodate them. The earlier we make changes, the better. Beyond the sketch phase, I cannot make major changes like altering the entire composition, pose, or size of the character.
In the case that I draw multiple sketches for you to choose from, you may choose one pose or combine the poses to proceed to the next phase. If you'd like to purchase one of the unchosen sketches to finish as a separate commission, you may do so at a later time.
Once you confirm the sketch, I will go on to the inking phase.
6. I will continue to send you process photos or screenshots at the inking phase.
You may request up to three changes at this phase. These changes should be reasonable for inking, like adding small details, as I cannot erase traditional ink.
I will give more leeway for major changes for larger commissions like dakimakura, but the changes may only be for the digital image if they cannot be changed on the traditional ink.
If your commission type contains color, I will continue to the color phase after you have confirmed the inks. You may request up to three changes at this phase. These changes should be reasonable for coloring, such as altering the hue, saturation, and lightness.
7. Once you have confirmed the final drawing, and if I haven't already sent it, I will send the final art!
Your final image will come in 300dpi JPG or PNG format depending on what best fits the art.
If you chose the mail shipping option, I will mail out the traditional art to the address you filled out on your invoice. If you haven't given me your address yet, I will ask you for your mailing address.
6. Done! Enjoy your art, and feel free to repost the commission art and use it as an icon/banner.
Should you repost the art, credit me as SCUMSUCK, and/or link to my social media (@SKUMSUCK) or my site (SCUMSUCK.com). Please refer to me as SCUMSUCK in any art of mine that you may repost, and do not refer to me with gendered terms.
If ya like how your commission came out, feel free to tip me on ko-fi!
