Unless you purchase my consent to use my work commercially all custom artwork is assumed 'for personal use' and therefore you are not allowed to make profit on said image. Images that are made to enhance a product that is intended for profit or promote the sale of a product that is intended for profit are considered 'for commercial use'. If you plan to use the artwork you hire me for commercially we will discuss a fee and once paid I will send you a signed document stating that you now hold the rights to reproduce the art for profit.
I reserve the right to post any artwork on my home page as a reference to my skill for future customers and to use any artwork myself for personal use. This line will be stated in the document when rights to sell are sold to the customer. Whether or not I will also hold the rights to sell the artwork as well as the customer who has purchased rights to sell is to be discussed upon agreeing on the fee.
The cost to purchase the rights to use my work commercially can vary based on the size of the project. The basic rate for "Shared Copyrights" (where you and I both hold the copyright) is +50% of the cost for the work. If you want to buy the "Full Copyrights" (To exclude me from being able to reproduce the piece) please email me for a more accurate quote.
You may choose to purchase the rights for sale to your custom piece of art after it has already been created for you. Likewise, you can choose to upgrade your artwork (ink, color, background, graphic design) as the image progresses rather then right away.
