# 5 Writing Prompt: Press Pause Play

What sets your work apart from everyone else? How do you strive to break the boundaries of previous creators, break the rules, break into YOUR thing?

What would set my work apart from everyone else would have to be my style and how I interpreted the things I’m inspired by and translate and incorporate it into my work. My art style started off organically from just doodles to what I make now. In-between that time (and you can say even now) I just learn and develop different ways and techniques to use while drawing, sketching, illustrating and or just experimenting with the concepts that pop in my head; whether or not it’s for work, personal use or for fun. From either drawing by hand, a mouse pad, or even with a tablet if I can create something that can expand or start on ideas that can be shared, I will be a “happy camper”.

Well, like I’ve stated before, it starts with ideas and expanding off of them, or even starting with an organic completely new idea, you have to know the rules before breaking them; otherwise, how else are we supposed to know if they can be broken. The rules can just be a basic as to always being sensible to a subject matter being portrayed incorrectly to something that’s common knowledge. Granted, if we don’t know the rules, all we have to do is try them out and see what happens, as well as trying to feel out if something you think could work but a rule would need to be broken in order for it to be possible. I think the thing every creator of something would have the same little idea or guideline they follow for, “If you think and want to try out an idea, even if this causes you to break some rules, fine. But keep in mind that even if you don’t break those rules, there is always going to be a result coming from that decision, whether it’s positive, negative, or even a bit of both. You’re never going to really know unless you give it a shot.” And well, I also have that thought process in my head as well.

– – – Commission Outline – – –

Ordering:

Be sure that commissions are open and there are available slots, if you have no knowledge that commissions are available at the moment, ask.

Please reserve a spot on my commissions only if you can pay.

To make a valid order please do it through an email.

Information I will need:

– Your email address.

– Commission info (read below).

I will email you after I approve the form.

Commissioning:

Please be sure to add the following information when making your order:

Commission type (example: sketched, half body).

Short written description (characters look, personality, background, etc).

Reference pictures (please no more than 3; this are to have a better idea of what you want).

Extra specifications (position, expression, mood, color palette, etc).

I will only give each commissioner 2 chances of modification to their commission if what was asked was not met the first time. If both modifications were met and they still want changes, then another contract will be made.

Payment:

I only accept PayPal.

I accept two payment methods with PayPal:

Payment upfront: you pay the total payment before I start working. You will be a priority customer.

Half and half payment: you can pay upfront the first half of the total and the other half when the artwork is finished. You will receive your commission after total payment.

I will get started once I receive total or half payment. Your commission will take me up to a month to get done.

PayPal fees will be added to your commission total. You can calculate your orders fee here: PayPal Fee Calculator

After commission approval I will invoice you the payment via PayPal. Please don’t pay me until I have confirmed via email with you.

Types of orders you can make:

I will draw: Original Characters, Character Design, Fanart, Portraits (of you, a friend, family, pets, etc), Creatures, Animals, Furries or Anthros, Androids and other fantasy characters.

I won’t draw: Fetish (inflation, furrie fetish, extremely large breasts, hate art, feet related and other), Mechs, Hentai or Porn.

** Any characters, landscapes, and concepts that were not created by you will be crediting the artist who has the rights to the character (examples: Edward Elric from FullMetal Alchemist, etc) **

Other:

My commissions are digital only. You will receive a small and large format digital copy file via email.

You cannot reproduced or use in any way the commissions I draw for your profit. You can use them only for personal use (for example: profile pictures, icons or prints). If you are still looking to use the image for personal use, then we’ll negotiate the terms of the image privately for a price.

I will not reproduce or sell Original Characters commissions. However, I may use them to advertise my work. This would be for personal promotion only, not profit.

If you commission me to draw fanart I may use them for convention prints, unless stated otherwise.

I will submit a low resolution image of your commission to my gallery.

Do not upload my work to your gallery. You can featured it in your journal/vlog instead, or use it for a costume widget for your profile. Posting it in your gallery may appear as if you are the author of the piece.

If possible credit me (as Flopa), if you can link back to my Deviantart, Youtube account, or WordPress page even better! I would really appreciate it!

If you want a commission for commercial use, my commission prices in Deviantart would not be used to define my pay. Please contact me at –InsertEmail-.com to discuss any commercial work.
