FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

COMMISSION PROCESS

Sketching

  • First you’ll get rough sketches from me to decide on a pose/general concept for the commission, that you have to approve in order to continue.
  • In this stage most of the changes are possible and easy for me to do, so if there is anything that you would like me to change, feel free to let me know, as larger changes will not be possible in later stages!
  • I usually do 1-2 sketches to envision your idea – if you want more sketches I can add more for a small fee.

Color Composition

  • Once, the pose is decided I do a color composition.
  • This will help as a guide for the mood of the illustration.
  • If you have commissioned a larger piece with lots of characters and background elements you’ll get a few choices to choose from.
  • If you only commissioned one character with decorative BG, you will get one choice but I can tweak and still change things here you don’t like.

Flats

  • Once the mood and colors are chosen I’ll start working on the cleaner sketch/linework and flat colors.
  • When I send you this draft it is your last chance to request edits and suggestions without having to pay an extra fee.

Painting Process

  • Once the thumbnail is decided and planned (pose, mood, colors), I’ll start with the painting process.
  • The face and focus points of the body will always be painted completely – background elements may stay in a rough shape that only gets defined and polished.
  • In this stage changes are no longer possible as you had plenty of time to ask for changes in the stages before.
  • I will have areas in the painting that are high of detail and areas of rest – meaning: I don’t render every part equally for balance and harmony. I also use texture brushes for some painterly touch.
  • Usually the area with most detail will be the face and center of interest.

Revisions: How do I give feedback the best?

Try to describe your wishes as detailed as possible! It also helps to draw redlines over the sketch I’ll send you. They do not have to be professional but help me so much to understand what you wish to changed. An example of how it could look like – on the left the sketch I did and on the right the wanted changes:

What counts as “complicated design”?

That is hard to say, as it depends on the character. If the design is much too complicated I can offer to simplify the design, or keep it as detailed as it is for an extra fee (that will depend on the complexity). Look at the image below, the left Outfit would fall under “simple design” and the right one would already be a slightly “complicated design”:

Your commissions are closed, what can I do?

If my commissions are closed, but you are interested in commissioning me with a piece of art, you can always check my twitter account (nurilicious_) as I post my Commission openings there~ or join my Ko-Fi Membership as I will inform the Supporters there first of new commission slots!

I’ve seen you work on personal artworks while in process of my commission!

YES. That can and will happen, as I also draw stuff for my Vtuber life and for my own pleasure in my free time. But do not worry, I have given you an estimate turnaround time and usually (if I have not fallen ill, or sth. more dramatic etc.) I will get the job done in that time. If for any circumstances your commission MAY be delayed, I’ll inform you immediately. Please do not be rude, if you see me posting personal projects in between commissions.

No need to ask my permission to have my art tattooed on you. All I ask in return is for you to send me a photo of your tattoo when you have had it done as I would like to see the result ♥

REFERENCES
Using my artwork as a reference for your own art is not a problem. This applies to referencing specific parts of my art as well as ‘style borrowing’ or trying out elements of my digital art approach. All I ask is for you to link to the image you used as a reference and provide proper credit by linking back to my social media accounts or website.

“STYLE THEFT”
Please do not contact me to report an artist who is imitating my style. Please be aware that a certain degree of similarity to my own artwork is not a copyright breach and therefore not illegal, even though it is heavily frowned upon in the digital art community. Please also refrain from harassing artists who do this.
