Howdy ya'll! These new Terms of Service are easy to follow and understand, and a heck of a lot shorter than the previous TOS version I had up for years.
Patreon...those that choose to become "Danger First Class" will receive a 10% discount for future commissions. The discount will only apply to commissions $50 or more.

TERMS OF SERVICE
If you use my services, you hereby agree that you:
1: are at least 18 years of age for adult content
2: are commited and able to pay for the work
3: will credit me and include a link to my InkBunny, SoFurry, Weasyl, and/or Patreon account. You are not required to include a link to all of my accounts; only one or more of the aforementioned accounts. (If you paid for a "private art fee" then disregard this number)
4: understand that I reserve the right to cancel a commission at anytime for any reason, but also understand that I will not do so unfairly or without just cause.
5: are a robot or non-robot
Part I: RESPONSIBILITY AND LIABILITY
A: You may do whatever you wish with the work you commissioned. However I am neither responsible or liable for any damages if the image or images you commissioned are seen by children or anyone that you would not want to see them; nor am I responsible or liable for the misuse of any image or images that you commission.
B: It is the sole responsibility of the individual or individuals requesting commissioned work to provide a detailed description of what they want done (Commission Request Requirements can be found in Part III Section 2) and also to provide images or videos of character or characters they want used in the commissioned work, if such reference images and videos are available. If no images or videos exist then a detailed description is all that is needed as long as it follows the guidelines laid out in Part III Section 2.
C: It is my responsibility to ensure that all commissions, either requested or in progress, are dealt with professionally and promptly. Questions can be asked at any time and no one will be treated unfairly.
No individual or individuals will be judged or disrespected unless such judgement and disrespect is unduly put upon me.
D: It is my responsibility to give you credit also for the commission request, and I will add a link to whatever account you want in the description of the work I post unless you wish to remain anonymous.
E: You agree to these terms of service upon paying an invoice for a commission containing adult material. If for some reason you are under 18 and somehow got a commission from me, and you get found with the commissioned work at any point during the commission process; I am not responsible or liable, nor shall I issue any refund.
Part II: TIME-FRAMES, PAYMENT AND REFUNDS
A: Time-frames can vary depending on the complexity of the work. A simple single character sketch will always be completed quicker than a single character full-detailed work. Most commissions can be completed in two (2) weeks or less. Again this depends on complexity of the work and real-world factors.
B: Time-frames to when any commission will be completed are only an estimate and are not guaranteed. Please understand I work a full-time job and also some part-time and side jobs on top of doing artwork. No exact date will be given for completion of commissions. If a commission MUST be completed by a certain date (such as a birthday or another special occasion), then that MUST be established before a commission project begins and a "time-sensitive fee" will apply. A commission begins when I approve of the commissioned work and either partial or full payment of the work has been received and logged.
2: PAYMENTS AND REFUNDS
A: Due to security for both myself and others, payments will only be accepted through PayPal.
B: Payments can be made in full or partially. Partial payments is that the individual or individuals pay 50% of the commission total up-front and then remaining 50% when the commission is completed.
a: Partial payments are only allowed for commission $30.00 or more.
b: Other payment plans are not acceptable. Only 50% up-front and 50% when completed.
c: The individual or individuals have seven (14) calendar days from the completion of the commission to pay the remaining balance. If the remaining balance is not paid within the time allotted, then the commissioned work will be re-purposed or destroyed and no refund for the first paid half of the work will be granted.
C: Payment, either in full or partial, must be made before any work is started. Paying full or partial will not determine the level of importance or order I work any commission unless a "time-sensitive fee" or a "priority fee" is applied. (See Part V Section 2 for fee prices).
D: Refunds can happen one of two ways; full or partial.
a: A full refund will only be submitted if I am unable to complete your commission on my end due to some unforeseen circumstance. A full refund will never be allowed for any other reason.
b: A partial refund will be submitted if any individual or individuals become disrespectful, unrealistic, demanding, or obnoxious at any time while the commission is in progress. The customer is always right is not my motto. Whatever work that is done will be taken and re-purposed or destroyed entirely.
E: Please do not make a payment even after we agree on the work until an invoice in sent to you through PayPal. Any payment made without an invoice will be refunded and you'll have to start the process of paying over again.
Part III: COMMISSION PROCESS AND COMMISSION REQUEST REQUIREMENTS
1: COMMISSION PROCESS
The commissions department operates Monday-Friday. Commissions may extend into Saturday only if absolutely necessary, and there's never work on Sundays.
My commission process is as follows:
1 - Submit a request to me following the guidelines laid out in subsection 2 of this part.
2 - After I approve the request and you agree on the price, you make a payment following the guidelines in Part II Sections A-C.
3 - I start the commission; starting with a sketch or a rough-draft, then the inking, then the flat color then finally the lighting, shading and effects. If you only paid for a sketch then that's where the work ends.
4 - I provide you updates as I progress in the drawing process, and I will get your approval before moving onto the next stages. I email preview images to the email associated to your PayPal account only. Preview images are lower resolution and smaller than the finished work will be.
5 - You will be given three (3) free alterations throughout the rough-draft stage and one (1) free alteration during the flat-coloring stage. If you happen to want an alteration made after already approving the rough-draft and/or the coloring stages, then a "post-sketch alteration fee" will apply.
6 - After the commission is completed, and you've already paid in full, you will be emailed the completed full-sized work. If you made a partial payment, the remaining balance must be paid before I email you the full-sized commissioned work. (See Part II Section B Subsection c for more information)
NOTE: IF YOU WANT THE ART TO BE POSTED BUT WOULD RATHER REMAIN ANONYMOUS, THEN I WILL NOT MENTION YOU IN THE POSTED DESCRIPTION. I WOULD LIKE TO POST MY OWN ART, BUT IF YOU WANT THE ART NOT TO BE POSTED AT ALL FOR WHATEVER REASON, THEN A "PRIVATE FEE" WILL BE CHARGED.
2: Commission Request Requirements
A: Commission requests must be submitted either through private message or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) only. I will not accept requests through any other medias. Please subject the message as 'COMMISSION REQUEST'.
B: Commission requests must include a detailed description, along with reference images or videos if available. The more research I have to do for references the longer the work will take to complete. A detailed description does not have to be multiple paragraphs long or overly complex. To make it easier for you and myself, please provide the details in the following order (copy and paste the below order and use as the format for your commission request). Requests MUST following the guidelines below to be considered.
a: Character or characters that you want
b: What the character or characters will be doing (positions, poses, camera angles, etc)
c: The setting/environment/location (bathroom, bedroom, office cubicle after hours, backseat of a
vehicle, out in the woods, etc)
d: Quality of the work (sketch, inked, flat colored or full detail)
Part IV: MATERIAL
1: There's a lot of material that I will accept. However there is even more I will not accept. Things I won't draw include but are not limited to:
b: Foot fetishes (feral dog paws are okay)
d: Extreme scat
e: Anything to do with being pissed on or drinking piss
l: MyLittlePony/Sonic the Hedgehog/Steven Universe/Lilo & Stitch/Care Bears/Paw Patrol
n: Birds/Griffins (anatomically correct birds okay. No weird humanoid or mixed bird creatures)
r: Changing ages of characters (such as taking a character known to be a "pup" or a "child" and making them older)
s: Farting (feral dogs are okay)

2: Post-Sketch alteration fee (where you request alterations after the rough-draft and/or color stage had been approved): $10 per alteration
3: Priority fee (where you pay for me to work on your commission even if someone was ahead of you or I was in the middle of another commission. Note that this is not a rush option where the commission will get done faster. It just pushes you to the head of the line): $30
4: Time-sensitive fee (If the work HAS to be done by a certain time. This option has to be arranged two (2) weeks before the proposed deadline) : $40
5: Private fee (where you want a commission but don't want it posted anywhere; even by me!): $50
6: Reserve Holding Fee (where you pay to reserve a slot until the a spot opens up. This fee is a one time charge and will be deducted from overall commission's total price): $10
IF YOU DO PAY FOR A "PRIVATE FEE" AND END UP POSTING IT LATER ON YOUR OWN ACCOUNT(S), NO REFUND WILL BE ISSUED AND I AM ALLOWED TO POST IT ON MY ACCOUNTS AT THAT POINT
I'm much OBLIGED that you chose me for the work. It's always nice to have the support and sometimes the attention for things I love to do.
Take care and be safe out there.
