Terms of Service

     These Terms of Service are relevant to non-commercial projects only.  The Client must read, understand and agree to all the below terms before entering into an agreement with the Artist (Shandy  Salyer Huff).

By sending payment, the Client agrees to the following terms.

  • The Artist has the right to refuse any commission request.

  • The Artist reserves the right to issue a refund and cancel a commission due to poor communication, rude/inappropriate behavior, or an inability to effectively communicate in the English language.

  • The Artist will not create any depiction of illegal activities, sexually explicit (x-rated) materials, or hateful/racist imagery.

  • The Artist will not reproduce a copyrighted image or character without consent of its creator.  This means do not send me a photo taken by a company or photographer, they have been copyrighted and I will not use them as references.  Send me photos that you have taken yourself or someone in your family or friend that permission to use the photo will be easy to get. 

  • The Artist retains all rights to the commissioned artwork, including the rights to distribution (i.e., to create prints, merchandise, etc.).

  • The Artist retains the right to display all commissioned work on any personal website, gallery, or journal. If the commissioned work is time-sensitive, the Artist can delay public display of the art at the request of the Client.

  • The Artist is not responsible for shipping. The Client must pay the cost of shipping on traditional work(s).  Digital Art can be email without cost.  Unless you wish to have it download on to a CD which there is a charge for the CD and shipping.  Pick up is welcomed.

  • The Client may not re-distribute, reproduce, or sell the Artist's work, or profit from the artwork, beyond the resale of a physical original painting or drawing (traditional media only).

  • The Artist is not responsible for printing (digital media). Works will be uploaded to this site and will be available for Clients to purchase at the cost of printing (no markup).

  • The Client may not exhibit the Artist's work in any online/offline art gallery without the permission of the Artist.

  • The Client is advised to specify the size of his/her commissioned image, whether digital or traditional. Excessively large images will cost more. Excessively small images, may reduce the price.

  • The Client may resize/crop the commissioned artwork to create icons, wallpapers, or other graphics to be used in non-commercial digital format, but the client cannot alter the artwork itself. (Digital Art only)

  • Client rights can be negotiated for an added fee. If the commissioned image will be used for commercial purposes, the Artist must be notified prior to the start of work. Commercial use of images will be decided upon on a case-by-case basis, and will result in an increased commission price. New terms of service must be decided upon before the Artist begins any work on a commission for commercial use.

Client Information

I require the following information of my Client.
I will not share Client contact information.

  • Email address: I must have the Client's email address before proceeding with a commission inquiry, if I am first contacted by the Client via deviantART's "Note" system or Facebook. (Only deviantART members have access to the "Note" system. Using deviantART's "Notes" alone, is not a reliable means of communication for my needs.) If the Client does not have a deviantART account, disregard this message and simply proceed in contacting me via email or Facebook.

  • Phone Number: I will not call the Client unless there is a conflict of interest, schedule, or payment.

  • Age: If the Client is under 18, he/she must supply contact information for his/her parent or guardian. I have the right to contact the parent/guardian of an under-aged Client, to ensure that there is no conflict of interest, and the Minor is able to pay for the commission.

  • Physical Address: I only need an address if I am shipping a traditional art commission. If you are picking the art up no need to send me an address.

  • The Client must make commission inquiries as specific as possible. Clear and concise visual references and/or description of a commission idea must be provided by the Client.
