Hi! I'm Kitvin, but you can just call me Kit. I've been a furry since late 2014, and I'm finally starting to get more involved in the art side of the community.
I do art and paw/armsleeve commissions. Check out my commission info for more details, and PM me if you're interested in something!
(Before commissioning me, seriously, please read my commission terms. It makes everyone's day easier.)

DarkFox Studios Fursuit Status:
May open for partials late 2018/early 2019.
Currently open for paws and armsleeves.
I've started on the handpaws, and sewn up a bit more of the tail. Armsleeves are next, and after that are feetpaws once I get shoes for 'em.
I haven't been able to work on the head recently, as it takes energy that I just haven't had.
Bodysuit will be the last thing I do, because it requires enlisting the help of a friend or two to make the DTD.
If you haven't already, you can see photos of my progress under my "Fursuit" submissions folder.
BY PURCHASING ART FROM/COMMISSIONING ME, YOU ARE STATING THAT YOU HAVE READ AND AGREED TO MY TERMS/INFO.
All prices are in USD. I only accept payment through PayPal (please do not use the “family and friends” option!) or Venmo, and work on your piece cannot begin until I have been paid in full.
I do not do refunds on art. I do not do so on fursuits or their parts either, unless I have not purchased the materials yet. Please note that these are only basic prices, and are subject to change without notice. If your design is complex or very detailed, it will be more.
When contacting me for a quote, in your very first message you need to state what it is you are asking about, and send a ref sheet of your character. By commissioning me, you are confirming that you have fully read and agree to this text in its entirety.
I do not do NSFW or ref sheets. Do not ask.
Art commissions are taken on a first come, first serve basis. I do not do reserves, nor do I currently have a queue. If I feel that I cannot take on any more commissions, I will close until I finish the current pieces. I am almost always open right now, though this may change as more people commission.
All pieces come with a simple background of your choice: single color, two color ombre/fade, simple pattern, or a free-to-use image. More complex backgrounds (landscapes, etc.) will be more, and will be discussed when you ask for your quote.
All of my work is digital. I will send progress photos to you upon request, max 2 per week. I am busy during the weekdays from 9am to 6pm, so I most likely will not respond to inquiries during these hours. I do not have a current estimated wait time, sorry.
DarkFox Studios is currently closed for fursuit commissions, except for paws and armsleeves. Hopefully towards the end of 2018/early 2019, we’ll be open for at least fursuit partial commissions. Currently, I offer three styles of paws, dubbed “Basic Toony Paws”, “Canine Paws”, and “Monster/Beast Paws”, each having add-ons available.
Paws are one-size-fits all, but if you’d like to ensure that they will fit, you can send me a tracing of your hand after paying for your paws. Your ring and middle fingers should be together, as this is how they will be when wearing the paws. If the paws will be too small, I can make them larger at no extra cost.
Armsleeves are custom-fit, and I will require measurements that will be discussed once you have paid for your order.
Shipping will be discussed when you ask for a quote, meaning my prices do not include shipping costs. I do not know shipping times. I only ship within the United States, and I am based near San Francisco. All paw shipments will come with care instructions.
Terms Of Service
You must be 13 years of age or older to commission me, and you must be paying with your own money. If it is discovered that you have used a parent’s credit/debit card without their knowledge, or someone else’s credit/debit card without their knowledge, there will be consequences.
I only accept payment through PayPal and Venmo. Do not use the “family and friends” option. I do not do refunds, unless it is for a fursuit/parts of a fursuit and I have not yet purchased materials.
I will occasionally have discount codes or sales. These cannot be combined or stacked. Once a sale is over, it’s over. Discount codes are unique for each person who receives one, and expire once they have been used.
Disclaimer: All of my original characters and original work belong to me. DO NOT use them for roleplay, fanart, or anything else. Exception: Fanart is acceptable if you ask for permission FIRST.
DO NOT: copy, trace, steal, claim as your own, or heavily reference my art. If this occurs, the appropriate actions will be taken to remove my work or the traced/copied/heavily referenced work from your profile.
Any character(s) in commissions do not belong to me, and this will be stated in the description of every commission, with a link to the owner of the character(s). All commissions will be posted on my social media pages, so be sure to include a link to one of your social media accounts when messaging me for a commission. This link will be listed in the description of the post including your commission so people can find the owner of the character(s). If you do not provide a link, I will use the one associated with the account you are messaging me from.
If you are sharing (reposting somewhere else) my art or work in general, you must give credit, including a link (one is perfectly fine) back to my Amino, Tumblr, Weasyl, or Twitter. All links are provided above. If I come across a post including my art or other works that does not have a link, I will re-post/re-blog/comment on said post with a link to one of my social media pages.
I am not responsible for packages lost or damaged during transit, please contact the postal service for any shipping issues!
I do live with a dog, and while all paws are cleaned, brushed, and disinfected before shipment, there may still be risk of a reaction if your allergies are very severe. Please keep this in mind.
Any and all ref sheets you send for a commission must belong to you, free and clear. I will not do art with stolen characters, or art of characters that are not yours. The exception: If you have asked the owner of the character and they have agreed, then and only then will I make art of characters that do not belong to you. You must provide proof of their agreement. Whether it be in the form of a screenshot, or asking if the other person will chat with me for a moment to confirm that they gave you permission to use their character.
These terms and info, and my prices are subject to change without notice, but I will try to inform everyone if they are modified.
