PLEASE DESCRIBE everything you want before I start painting. Watercolor is a medium that is un-reversible. Once painted, there is no un-do button. If you want, I can send a photo of the pencil sketch before color is added as it is the only step where you can still request some minor changes before paint is applied.

No porn, hate, excess violence! I have the right to refuse or quote extra for nudes, mild gore (like zombies) etc.
If what you want is grey area, please message first and be truthful of what you want so I can tell you right away if I can or cannot do it. F.ex changes to the picture, yes I can draw different clothes, no I will not draw a nude version of clothed picture.
Before you even ask, I do not draw balloon-butt boobed anime girls... that kind of artist is in another castle.
Please upload your photo(s) to deviantart/sta.sh where possible, or within known photo sites (flickr, photobucket, picasa, pinterest) and make sure I can view and download the best possible quality needed to work on your commission. You must understand, if your photo is of low quality (such as old photos) I have the right to "invent" details where needed (f.ex. open eyes that are closed in photo, decide clothes/hair color if you want colorful painting from black and white photo and do not know the colors to tell me)
Points can be used for some Digital Items (See Coloring Book page commission on profile).
I prefer paypal, 2.9% paypal fee will be added to the price.
I can also sell through Etsy (3.5% fee will be added before paypal/direct checkout fee) for extra coverage, and through Etsy platform it is also possible to use direct checkout payment instead of paypal. Please let me know early on which you prefer, as it may affect the overall price! Example; $80 painting + $14 shipping =$94. With only paypal: $96.73 Through Etsy: $100,10
