Digital Artist Agreement
All orders have to come with a Brief in word/pdf;
The Brief has to inform the size of the artwork, resolution, bleeds, file format (if PNG, JPG, PDF, AI, PSD, etc…), the color scheme of preference (if any applicable), theme, delivery time; information about the characters (gender, age, skin complexion, hair color, hairstyle, eyes, cloths style, etc…), detailed information about the scene/background.
In case of additional requests, it has to come in a document as appendices of the Brief (not via chat, to avoid loss of information);
Information/details that weren’t included in the Brief will be considered extra work;
In the event of ADDITIONAL WORK OR UNFORESEEN EXTENSION OF WORK as a result of changes made to the briefing will be paid based on the illustrator’s normal rates.
This is an illustration and design service, not an editor service. Decisions regarding book format, file format, sales, proofreading, marketing can be made by the illustrator as a way of helping the client, but they are not part of the contractor’s expertise and are not part of the contracted service.
The request has to be an official document (word or pdf) not via chat, to avoid loss of information and to make it easy to count the number of revisions.
Revision of the text or editing is not included in this offer, and it’s not part of the illustrator’s work. The manuscript sent to the illustrator for text placement must be the final reviewed version.
In the event of CANCELLATION of the job for any reason whatsoever, the client is liable to full payment of the agreed fee, unless there is a demonstrable default on the part of the illustrator.
The delivery time shall be clearly specified in the Brief and previously discussed with the Illustrator.
The Illustrator shall use her best endeavors to deliver the artwork to the Client by the agreed date and shall notify the Client of any anticipated delay at the first opportunity.
The Client shall make an immediate objection upon delivery if the artwork is not in accordance with the brief. If such objection is not received by the Illustrator within 7 days of delivery of artwork it shall be conclusively presumed that the artwork is acceptable.
If the Client changes the brief and requires subsequent changes, additions, or variations, the Illustrator may require additional consideration for such work. The Illustrator may refuse to carry out changes, additions, or variations that substantially change the nature of the commission.
All sales rights are reserved for the author. But the illustrator reserves the right to showcase the work in her portfolio, social media, and any other means for the sole purpose of promoting herself and her business.
The illustrator reserves the right to have her name on the cover of the book, as the illustrator.
It is the author’s responsibility to register the copyright and bear the costs of it if she/he wishes to have her/his book registered.
