TERMS OF SERVICE
By engaging the services of this illustrator, you are commissioning artwork in her distinctive style, as exemplified in her portfolio. This illustrator does not replicate the styles of other artists.
All orders must be accompanied by a Brief in Word or PDF format.
The Brief should include information about the artwork's dimensions, resolution, bleeds, file format (e.g., PNG, JPG, PDF, AI, PSD), preferred color scheme (if applicable), theme, delivery timeline, character details (gender, age, skin tone, hair color, hairstyle, eyes, clothing style, etc.), and comprehensive information about the scene or background.
Additional requests should be documented as appendices to the Brief (not conveyed via chat to prevent loss of information).
Any details omitted from the Brief will be considered as extra work.
In the case of ADDITIONAL WORK OR UNFORESEEN EXTENSION OF WORK arising from changes to the original briefing, charges will be based on the illustrator's standard rate of 50.00 euros per hour.
This service encompasses illustration and design; it does not include editorial services. Decisions related to book format, file format, sales, proofreading, and marketing remain the responsibility of the client. While the illustrator can offer suggestions, these matters are beyond the scope of the illustrator's expertise and are not part of the contracted service.
This offer does not cover sketches specific to character design.
Official revision requests must be submitted in document format (Word or PDF) to ensure accurate record-keeping and revision count.
This offer does not encompass text revision or editing; these are not within the illustrator's purview. The manuscript provided to the illustrator for text placement must be the final, reviewed version by the author.
This offer includes 2 revisions: the first for the sketch and the second for the coloring stage.
Sketch revision: At this stage, the client may request changes related to poses, expressions, backgrounds, and scenes not aligned with the initial brief.
Color revision: During this phase, the client may request changes only concerning color, light, and textures. Major alterations to finished artwork may prompt a fee of 50.00 euros per page for additional revisions involving changes to poses, expressions, backgrounds, and scenes not stipulated in the sketch phase.
Should the client choose to CANCEL the project for any reason, full payment of the agreed fee is expected, unless the illustrator is demonstrably in default.
The delivery timeframe will be clearly outlined in the Brief and agreed upon in advance with the Illustrator.
The Illustrator will make every effort to meet the agreed-upon delivery date and will promptly notify the Client of any expected delays.
Upon delivery, the Client must raise any objections if the artwork does not align with the brief. Failure to do so within 7 days of artwork delivery shall be considered acceptance of the work, and the commission/delivery will be deemed complete. Subsequent requests will incur additional charges.
If the Client modifies the original brief, necessitating subsequent changes, additions, or variations, the Illustrator may require additional compensation for such work. The Illustrator retains the right to decline changes, additions, or variations that significantly alter the essence of the commissioned work.
Sales rights are retained by the author. However, the illustrator reserves the right to showcase the work in her portfolio, on social media, and through other means solely for self-promotion and business purposes.
The illustrator retains the right to have her name displayed on the book cover as the illustrator.
The responsibility for copyright registration and associated costs rests with the author if they wish to register their book's copyright.
