TERMS OF SERVICE

Last ToS Update: August 29th, 2022 – PAYMENT section: Changed the payment plan to only be available for returning customers.


By ordering a commission, you accept these Terms of Service between me (Nurilicious, the artist) and you (the customer/commissioner):

IMPORTANT

  • The amount shown does not include VAT pursuant to § 19 UStG. // Im ausgewiesenen Betrag ist gemäß § 19 UStG keine Umsatzsteuer enthalten“.
  • The services of these digital commissions does not include shipping of a physical product of any kind.
  • The commissioner receives a digital copy of the commissioned piece without a watermark, in full resolution for their personal use and one with watermark (more in detailed description see “Rights” section further down). Further redistribution tied to any financial gain is strictly prohibited UNLESS commercial rights have been purchased.
  • Please always write in a clear and nice manner.
  • Any ill behavior (like unaccepted social acts: racism, fascism, etc., not ceasing certain behaviors upon artist’s request – eg. being overly flirty, condescending manner of speech/writing, etc) will not be tolerated and your commission will be cancelled if it occurs (non-refundable).
  • I will not draw problematic and illegal themes, such as pedophilia, rape, sexism, racism, violent and gory images, trypophobia
  • The commissioner can’t change the references and descriptions of the commission drastically after they made the payment.
  • I normally work on commissions from monday – friday (exception: holidays), so please contact me only on business days regarding questions, as I may otherwise not be able to answer questions within 48h. If it is a pressing matter, state that clearly in your email/message, as it will help me to see it faster and be able to response to those messages first.
  • Nothing made by Nurilicious may be used in any blockchain-related technology, to include NFTs, cryptocurrency, or future inventions in the space.

EXTRA FEES

  • Without any additional payment we can agree upon to not post the art before a certain date (f.e. Vtuber debut/model reveal/birthday of the person you wanna gift the art etc.). Please let me know in the commission form under “Additional Information”.
  • A rush fee can be put on orders depending on how quickly you need the art done and my current workload. They are negotiable within an additional 30-50% fee. But please don’t ask for extremely rushed deadlines (shorter than 5 days). Commissioning me implies the agreement to my own timings.
  • Complicated Designs will increase the price depending on complexity: 20-100%

PAYMENT

  • Payment is accepted in Euro (€) through PayPal or Stripe. All payments are due upfront and in full.
  • A payment plan is possible for orders above 150€ for returning customers and can be discussed prior in the commission request.
  • I reserve the right to increase my prices for all of my commissions at any time, due to my improving skill level, increased demand, etc.
  • Nurilicious will not, under any circumstances accept payment via bitcoin or ethereum, or any other crypto currency.
  • Invoices must be paid within 48 hours after receiving it, unless agreed otherwise prior to sending the invoice.
  • Invoices will be sent 2-5 days before the commission work begins.
  • I will begin processing your order only once payment has cleared. The finished file will only be delivered, once payment has been paid in full.

WAIT TIME

  • The wait time before I start your commission can vary depending on different factors such as: health, order of commissions, rush commissions, complexity, work etc. If any of the above situations occur, you will be notified ASAP through e-mail or direct message on twitter, if your commission was set for a specific deadline. For all “normal” commissions, please check for a social media post on my twitter with the caption [IMPORTANT FOR COMMISSIONERS] or similar. If you have any questions in those times, you are free to contact me through Mondays to Fridays!
  • After filling out the commission form, I will contact you. If I am willing and capable of working on your commission request, you will receive an estimate of cost and estimated turnaround time for your project – usually 2-5 working days after sending your information – and you will be free to decide whether or not you’d like to commission me after receiving it.
  • Once, the request has been accepted, it will be placed in a waitlist and you’ll receive an invoice usually 2-3 days before I start working on your project that has to be paid in total, before any work on your commission will start.
  • The easiest way to estimate waiting time is to visit my waitlist – under normal circumstances (if I am not fallen ill or else), I finish commissions in around 7 to 20 business days, depending on complexity and amount of commissions at that time.
  • I stay in contact with all my commissioners during a commission and will notify you once I’m able to start your commission.
  • Please make sure to check said waitlist and make yourself familiar with the waiting times, before placing your order.

COMMISSION PROCESS

  • I will send you a rough sketch, that you have to approve in order to get on with your final commission. In this step you can ask for changes – like different expression or adding something I missed from your description. There will be NO included bigger revisions after the sketch was accepted!
  • I will keep you updated through several stages (sketch, line art and flats) with images in lower quality (72 DPI) and each time you will have the opportunity to change details to your liking. However, I won’t correct finished commissions.
  • All commission orders must include request details and good coloured references at time of purchase.
  • You can of course order multiple commissions, if slots are available. (f.e. 1 Headshot + 1 Chibi Commission ordered at the same time)
  • Commissions are normally completed in the order in which they are accepted BUT please note that some of the clients pay a priority rush order fee if they have an earlier deadline. When they do, their queue number goes up.

REVISIONS

Included in every base price is:

  • 1 major revision in the sketch phase (f.e. change expression, change hand gesture etc. if you’re not happy with it ~ also if you’re unhappy with the whole pose, I can still change it here!)
  • 1 revision in the lineart phase (f.e. adding something I’ve missed from the sketch/idea in the first place)
  • 1 revision in the flat colouring phase (f.e. changing the skin/hair/eye color)
  • Each additional revision will be charged with an extra fee.
  • After that phase and when the shading is done, I will not correct finished commissions!

RIGHTS

  • The commissioner still owns the copyright to the characters and will be mentioned as the owner of the character.
  • Emote & PNGtuber commissions are created solely for the client and may be used on their own platforms (etc. Twitch, Youtube, Discord, etc).
  • The commissioner may commission a third party to animate emote commissions, as long as credit for the original artwork is given (the artist can refer to a very good artist for those works if needed).

  • I have the right to post the artwork, use it in my portfolio, promote myself, stream the work in progress (if not otherwise explicitly denied), record it’s process as a timelapse video and share it, display and/or publish the piece on any website, publish it in artbooks (with proper credit), etc.
