Commission Policies

ART CONTRACT 

What to Expect Concerning Drawings, and Paintings

(1/30/2022)

 I ask a 50% deposit before work will begin on your commission.  The customer is free to cancel the commission at any time, but 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 or full sized file) after the final payment has been received.  The customer must notify me in advance of commissioning a traditional media piece if it is to be shipped upon completion, so that shipping and handling fees can be factored into the quote.  If advanced notice is not given, but the customer wishes to purchase the original piece, this can usually be done at the additional cost of shipping and handling fees, though exceptions may sometimes apply, and I am occasionally not able to fulfill this request.  After I have been paid in full, the customer will have 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.  Otherwise defined as 'commercial use') unless otherwise arranged.  I may use the piece at my discretion, unless otherwise arranged.  If the customer wishes to use the piece for commercial purposes (e.g. prints and/or downloads, etc.) commercial use of the piece can be purchased at additional cost (usually 3-5x the standard rate).  Full copyright can also be purchased at similar rates.  Copyright and/or commercial use of the commissioned piece can be purchased at the time the order is placed, or at a later date, however, the piece may not be used in ways that would constitute commercial use until the aforementioned rights have been purchased.  If commercial/copyrights are purchased at a time after the initial order is placed, and a quote has not already been calculated for the additional fee, the quote your receive will not likely exceed 5x the value of your order (however the amount of the quote will be ultimately up to my sole discretion).

Unless purchased by the client, it should be noted that sole ownership to the copyright of the piece is retained by grayREALM Studio (referring to the original artwork created by my hand, at the request of, and with permission from the client, and not to any character designs or intellectual property belonging to the client therein).

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.​

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

FURSUIT CONTRACT

What to Expect Concerning Fursuit Commissions

(3/12/2022)

 

-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 upon customer cancellation, unless otherwise arranged.  Failure to pay in full within the allotted amount of time will constitute customer cancellation.  For full and half suits, a Duct Tape Dummy (or 'DTD') will be required, and the customer acknowledges that a DTD must be provided upon request in order for me to complete the order.  Failure to provide a usable DTD upon request will constitute customer cancellation.  For other costume orders, a variety of measurements may be required, and the customer acknowledges that said measurements must be provided upon request in order for me to complete the order.  Failure to provide measurements upon request will constitute customer 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.  Failure to pay in full within 6 months of the completion of the order will constitute customer cancellation.  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.

No refunds upon customer cancellation can be provided 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

(1/29/2022)

     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 or miscommunication.  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.
