Commission Guidelines & 50% Deposit
Thank you for considering commissioning artwork with me! Please read these guidelines before you decide to go this route. There will be a message box at check-out where you can include as many details about your artwork as you'd like. In the drop-down menu below you can select the size of your piece.
Here are some examples of pricing for popular drawing sizes. If the size/dimension you're looking for isn't on this list please email me at [email protected] and we'll go from there! However, I am currently not accepting commissions smaller than 8" x 10".
I require a 50% deposit before starting the artwork. This deposit guarantees you a slot in my calendar.
8" x 10" - $480 ($240 deposit)
11" x 14" - $925 ($462 deposit)
If you are commissioning a pet portrait (or any artwork requiring photographs) I will need 5 - 10 photos so I can pick the best ones for a good composition. Please send these to [email protected] with the subject line "commission photos." If you're commissioning a pet portrait It is very helpful if the photos include the whole body of your pet, visible from head to toe! Pictures shot from a neutral angle (not shot from above) are always the best!
I will send you at least two pictures of the artwork in progress so that we can tweak it if necessary before I finish.
The remaining 50% payment for the artwork is due upon completion of the artwork, after which the artwork will be delivered/shipped.
I will start the artwork during the time-slot you sign up for (time-slots are one month,) and it will be shipped on the 1st of the following month if the remaining balance has been paid on time. If the 1st falls on a weekend, it may not ship until the following week.
You will cover all shipping costs if shipping is necessary.
You will own the original physical drawing of the artwork on paper. I, the artist, will own the intellectual rights of the artwork including the right to replicate. I may choose to reproduce the artwork and sell prints of it in the future or use it to advertise my work on my website/instagram.
If this commission is for work that you will need to replicate, such as a logo, please email me at [email protected] (and do not submit a deposit through this form.)
Please let me know if the artwork is a gift or surprise for someone, in which case I will not post progress shots online until after the recipient of the artwork has received their gift.
Commissions do not include frames, but if you would like the artwork to be framed this is a service I also offer! Alternatively you may decide to get your portrait framed elsewhere.
By submitting your deposit payment through this form you agree to these terms & conditions.
Thanks for reading, and if you have any questions feel free to contact me via my instagram @jentoledo.art, or email me at [email protected].
