Private commissions are for personal use only, if you are interested in hiring me for a commercial project, please feel free to email me with your inquiry.

Please note that all commissions will be done digitally in Adobe Photoshop. I am not offering any traditionally drawn or painted services at this time.

What you will get

You will receive a 300 DPI file of your commission in TIFF format. All sketch commissions will be 8.5x11" (2550x3300 pixels). Paint commissions may vary, but will be a minimum of at least 8.5" (2550 pixels) on its shortest side.

  • If you are interested in commissioning me, please send an email to tancharles.89 [at] gmail [dot] com. I will not respond to private messages or notes via DeviantART or Tumblr.
  • Please use Sketch Commission - Greyscale” or “Sketch Commission - Colour”  in the subject header of your email for sketch commissions.
  • Please use Paint Commission - Single Character” or “Paint Commission - Custom Order”  in the subject header for paint commissions.
  • Please include a short brief (3-5 sentences at most) of what you would like to have commissioned from me, and I’ll let you know if I’m able to do it.
  • If I accept, please fill out the commission form below. Please follow the format, it makes it tremendously easier to find the information I need quickly instead of navigating a huge wall of text or a threaded email conversation.
  • Turnaround time is about one week for sketch commissions and three weeks for paint commissions, this will vary depending on how full the queue becomes and how busy I might be with work. I will provide you with a more accurate ETA via email should things change.
  • All payments must be made in USD via Paypal*.
  • Full payment must be made upfront once I agree to do your commission.
  • I will not draw anything that is hyper-sexualized, ultra-violent, or furries.
  • I reserve the right to deny a commission if I deem it inappropriate or if I feel uncomfortable or unsuitable in tackling the subject matter.
  • No queue-skipping, if I have completed a commission for you and you would like another one, you will be placed at the end of the queue.
  • These are private commissions, meaning they are for personal use only and not meant for commercial use. If you are unsure about this point feel free to email me and I will do my best to clarify.
*I am looking into alternate payment methods, but for now PayPal is the only method of payment I will accept.

If you are interested in using one of my artworks or hiring me for a commercial project, please feel free to email me at tancharles.89 [at] gmail [dot] com.
