How to order:

 

Commissions open until 12/31/19 or once I have filled all slots.

If you have your quote, the amount of your deposit, and are ready to place your order, simply send me your application via my contact form or directly emailing me at grayrealmstudio@gmail.com (You can also just notify me of your application through any previous means of communication or current email chains you may have with me).  

There is no special application form.  Any message letting me know that you’re ready to place your deposit will be acceptable.

I no longer take first come first serve commissions, and all applications will be curated and selected during a slot opening period.

Please don’t be offended if your order is not chosen, simply try again, and you might be chosen during a following slot opening period. If a customer becomes hostile, vulgar, or passive aggressive due to their order not being selected, the customer may be blacklisted.

 

 

What I will do:

Paintings, drawings, digital art, costumes, fursuits, plush, design, and more (just ask).

 

What I won’t do:

robotic, electronic, copyrighted material, sexually explicit/fetish oriented, or content that would be considered ‘not safe for work’.  (However, some amount of horror/gore {bones, blood, scars, etc} is acceptable).

 

If you have a specific character you would like rendered, I will require a reference to work with.  All special details and traits must be clearly depicted.  If the character does not have a symmetrical design, multiple angles should be shown in the reference.  I will accept a list reference (no image) for some art commissions if it is sufficiently detailed, but please acknowledge the final product will be my interpretation, and will likely not be an exact reflection of your written reference or mental image.

ART CONTRACT 

What to Expect Concerning Drawings, and Paintings

(11/14/18)

-Commissions $25.00 and under must be paid in full upfront-

 I ask a 50% deposit before work will begin on your commission.  The customer is free to cancel the commission at any time, but he/she will not receive the piece, or the 50% deposit, as it is non-refundable, unless otherwise arranged.  Failure to pay in full within the allotted amount of time will constitute cancellation.  After completion of the piece, the customer will be sent a watermarked version of the piece for review before final payment.  The customer will then be given the high-res, and un-watermarked version(digital scan file) after the final payment has been received.  After I have been paid in full, the customer will have sole ownership of the piece, and may use it for personal purposes.  The customer may not copy the piece with the intent to sell (e.g: prints and/or downloads) unless otherwise arranged. I may use the piece for portfolio purposes only, unless otherwise arranged.

Any additional, or conflicting agreements made through other documented communication will take precedence over the above.  Your deposit is considered agreement to these terms, and is legally binding.

FURSUIT CONTRACT

What to Expect Concerning Fursuit Commissions

-fursuit commissions $100 and under must be paid in full, upfront-

           I ask a 50% deposit before work will begin on your commission.  Lower deposit rates negotiable for commissions exceeding $800. You, the Customer, is free to cancel the commission at any time, but will not receive the piece, or the amount of the deposit, as it is non-refundable, unless otherwise arranged.  Failure to pay in full within the allotted amount of time will constitute cancellation. The Customer will receive regular updates to verify that the piece is progressing as desired. After completion of the piece, the Customer will receive a photo of the piece for review before final payment.  The piece will be shipped to the Customer once I have received the final payment. After I have been paid in full, the Customer will have sole ownership of the piece, and may use it for personal purposes. The Customer may not copy the pattern of the piece (referring to the suit structure, not your character’s design) unless otherwise arranged.  I may use the piece for portfolio purposes only, unless otherwise arranged.

Any additional, or conflicting agreements made through other documented communication will take precedence over the above.  Your deposit is considered agreement to these terms, and is legally binding.

Refurbishments Contract

(3/21/19)

          Full upfront payment is required for suit alterations and refurbishments.  The customer acknowledges that an altered/refurbished product may not reflect exactly the original vision, as alterations are not an exact science, and sometimes compromises have to be made.  Not all suits are eligible for alterations/refurbishments, and may be deemed ineligible upon arrival to the studio, due to undisclosed deterioration. Should this occur, the customer will be offered a refund, and the suit will be returned. THE CUSTOMER MUST NOTIFY ME IN ADVANCE OF PAYMENT OF ANY MATERIAL DETERIORATION IN ORDER TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR A RETURN SHIPPING REFUND, SHOULD SELLER CANCELLATION OCCUR.  What constitutes as material deterioration: Foam degradation, fur balding, rotting, black mold, exposure to smoke, excessive sunlight or extreme temperatures.  Customer cancellations are not eligible for refunds, however I will do my best to accommodate certain circumstances.

Any additional, or conflicting agreements made through other documented communication will take precedence over the above.  Your payment is considered agreement to these terms, and is legally binding.

(Q)How does the Queue work?

(A)The Queue is a way for you to reserve a slot when all of the active slots are filled or unavailable.  You can reserve a slot by placing a deposit, and you will move up the Queue as slots open.  Work will begin on your commission after you have been moved to an active slot.  I will give you a wait time estimate before you place your deposit.
