*Last Updated: --- --- *


Hello!! I'm Salphe, a little hobbyist hoping to start freelancing more!
I love birds and bright colors with all my heart.
Any problem can be solved by talking to me!
I don't bite, and I appreciate strong communication between myself and anyone I work with. It just makes things go easier!


I respond the quickest on ToyHou.se and Twitter!

- Streams casual/quiet work streams infrequently

"What can you draw?"

Will Draw:

  • OC's

  • Fanart (Fandom Dependent*)

  • Humans

  • Anthro/Furry

  • Monster/Feral

  • Closed Species

*pretty much guaranteed fandoms are Pokemon, FFXIV, most Tales of, most Zelda, and certain Fire Emblems!
Please be wary of spoilers with me, I'm VERY slow at finishing games/shows and I tend to quit on things when I get spoilers qwq

Weaknesses:

These are things I struggle with, or that take me extra time to draw.
I won't necessarily decline these, but I might charge a fee for some!

  • Long, noodle-y tails, cords, chains, etc.

  • Frills and lace

  • Backgrounds (in general, but mostly inorganic scenes with man-made structures like buildings.)

  • Armor, weapons, fight scenes, etc.

  • Heavily Detailed designs (FFXIV, Fire Emblem, that special and GORGEOUS brand of "High Quality" CS design, etc)

  • Mech(a)

Won't Draw:

  • Gore (Mild blood like a bloody nose is ok)

  • Sensitive Materials (generally, anything needing a TW)

  • NSFW (strictly nudity might be ok in certain instances. Don't be surprised if I decline, especially if you're a stranger.)

  • Large and complex props/vehicles (run it by me!)

  • Real-Life people, actors playing characters, etc. (Meaning no fanart of live-action shows/movies, sorry! Pets are cool though!)

  • *Undisguised* Mignyans and other fleshy designs.(i personally find the meaty-bits unsettling, but the base designs for Migs in a lot of cases look really fun!)

Sketches + Doodles

Grab-bag!! Kinda..?

(AKA: The brushes I use change on a whim,
so you might get a surprise :D !!!)

Please Note:

  • My sketch style, or more specifically the brushes I use, vary wildly! Everything is based on what I'm feeling at the time!

  • These are meant to be quick and loose, so expect armor, frills and lace, mechanical bits, etc. and complex designs to be simplified as I see fit. However-- if there are details that are too important to simplify or that you're afraid might be left out, please tell me! These characters are your babies, after all, I want to do right by them!!

  • All posted images will have my big ol' watermark, the file you receive will have a much smaller signature on it. (Feel free to ask for the watermarked version, too!)

  • If you specify BW / Monotone and want to tip, and your tip equals or exceeds the price of a Full Color sketch, your order will not be upgraded automatically.

  • -- -- --

  • With Regards To: Fullbody Humanoids, Human-faced and Plantigrade-Anthros

  • -- Faces are hard. Feet are hard. Please expect wild variation here... Stylization may at times lean more cartoonish, or simple, or detailed.

  • ** -- "Humanoid" applies to any creature with human anatomy, including Lalafell and children, but does NOT apply to furry/anthropomorphic characters (like Hrothgar). Please ask if you are unsure!

You CAN:

  • Request a specific color (BW / Monotone Only)

  • Request an action, expression, mood, etc. (Encouraged! If I can't get a given pose to work, I'll try to match its mood/energy as best I can.)

  • Ask about props, pets, and other objects. (Vehicles and large objects are likely to be denied, but you can ask regardless!)

  • Ask about decorations/environments. (Small things like flowers, flames, whisps, bubbles, etc. will likely be accepted. Environments and sceneries are not guaranteed, but will be considered!)

  • Ask me to revisit a previous BW / Monotone Commission to add Full Color OR Ask me to turn it into a Full Piece. (BW / Monotone Only; Both options will be given a discount on the secondary Commission, but to what extent is TBD!)

You CANNOT:

  • Request that I try to mimic previous sketches. (You may ask for similar decor ex: plants, etc.)

  • Request a re-sketch. The Commission is the sketch. I will gladly make small adjustments and fix things I may have missed, though!

  • Edit or "finish" a sketch without my EXPLICIT permission.

Terms of Service

Commissions

By doing business with me, you automatically agree to the following terms, as they are clearly, plainly linked with all sale advertisements.
Failure to follow my terms can and/or will result in anything up to and including permanent, public Blacklisting.
These terms are subject to periodic updates and adjustments as time goes on.
*Credit me on Toyhouse as MiiNiiRU ON SITE*Last Update: 8/11/2021
< General Updates and a Refresh >


General

  • All prices displayed in any listing will be in USD unless advertised otherwise.

  • I reserve the right to decline, cancel, and/or refund a commission for whatever reason at any time.

  • You must be 18 years or older to commission me. I will be checking socials to verify, and I will decline your order if you cannot provide proof of age. My apologies!

  • All items are Digital Goods, meaning that nothing will be shipped.

  • You must notify me if you change Usernames or Accounts in the middle of a transaction (trade, purchase, or otherwise), so we can continue communication. I am not responsible for refunds in the case that I cannot find you after a change of this nature.

  • Once the Commission is finished and delivered, you are solely responsible for keeping up with the files. I may or may not still have them at a later date, so please responsibly back-up your commissioned pieces.

  • I retain the rights to the art I create, including for use in but not limited to: portfolio work, commission examples, promotional examples, etc.

  • I require clear, verbal confirmation and communication in any and all transactions. Please confirm that you have sent payment, that you are ok with the contents of a trade and/or purchase, and confirm closure of transactions. A simple "thank you!" or "ok!" is all i'm looking for. I will not accept read-recipts as confirmation (dA Notes, Twitter, etc.) I will, however, accept Transfer notifications on ToyHouse as confirmations in trades.

WIP's n Edits

  • This is a little new because I haven't ever provided these in the past regularly, but I want to try to! I might fumble the ball a couple times but I'll do my best until I get more used to it. WIP/Edit terms are subject to random updates until I iron out how I do them, I apologize in advance!

  • I'll provide WIPs (Work In Progress updates) for work! I will only provide WIPs for Sketches and Lineart stages unless otherwise requested. (WIPs are unavailable for certain commission types.)

  • I won't continue moving forward with a commission until I receive feedback or approval for a WIP.

  • I will also do edits! The Sketch stage is where I can do the largest edits the easiest. I'll do any minor editing and one entire re-sketch (drastic pose change, character change, etc.) free of charge, but if you want another entire re-sketch I will charge an additional fee equivalent to another sketch commission.

  • ---- Minor edits + 1 entire re-sketch (pose change, character change, etc.) are free at this stage within reason. (Sketch-Commissions are exempt from this regarding full re-sketches. Instead, they'll cost 1/2 base-price the first time, and then full-price for any additional re-sketches.)

  • ---- Additional re-sketches for Non-Sketch Commissions will incur a fee equal to another base-price Sketch Commission. (ex: If you order a FB colored sketch, you'll only pay the base price and not the colored price.)

  • I can only do small edits after I finish lining and begin coloring.

Usage

  • Any art I create is only for My use and the Commissioner's use. If obtained through a character transfer, Customer Usage rights transfer with it (i.e. the original buyer no longer has permission to use the commissioned work)

  • Art of mine obtained through character transfers still must abide by these terms.

  • My art is for personal, non-commercial use only. (i.e. don't sell on RedBubble, Society6, Etsy, etc. IF you're looking for commercial-use work I'm more than willing to talk it out, but I might still decline in the end.) "Not for Commercial Use" includes Promotional Material for Commercial Projects, like Comics or Games.

  • Do Not claim my art as your own.

  • Do Not Redistribute or Edit my art in any way without my explicit permission. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • ---- Attempting to relocate or remove my signature or any watermarks present.

  • ---- Cropping a signature or watermark out of an image*

  • ---- Reposting my work without proper credits.

  • You can upload any commission you get from me on ToyHouse or other character database sites with proper credit! If you're using ToyHouse, credit me as an On-Site artist as MiiNiiRU; otherwise, provide clearly visible credit.

  • I do NOT allow my art/designs to be used in NFT's or NFT-adjacent purposes, commissioned or not.

*Cropping for icons, backgrounds, wallpapers, etc. is fine, but please provide a proper working link back to me that can be easily found.

Purchasing

All Sales are Final. Unwarranted Charge-Backs will result in immediate, public Blacklisting and Blocking. If there was a mistake, get in touch Immediately.Payment is required Up Front before work is started, and refunds are Unavailable if I have started your commission.

  • While my goal is to generally get orders done within a month of payment, please allow for a 2 ~ 3 month turnaround for all orders, of any size, unless discussed otherwise. You may check in with me as you please, but refrain from asking more than once a week. Pestering me will likely slow me down, and if I feel it borders harassment you may have your commission cancelled.

  • I'm willing to consider payment plans for large orders, meaning anything $100 and over. I'd prefer that payment plans be fulfilled in one month, unless discussed otherwise. Work on this commission won't start until at least 50% ~ 75% has been paid depending on amount, and I won't proceed past the sketch stage until payment has been completed. Please stay in contact during payment plans.

  • If for whatever reason I'm unable to complete your commission during my quoted turnaround, I'll let you know!


If you have any questions or concerns, please PM me on any site you find me on!!

  • I reserve the right to decline or cancel a purchase for reason at any time before Payment (money, trade, etc.) has changed hands.

  • I require clear, verbal confirmation and communication in any and all transactions. Please confirm that you have sent payment, that you are ok with the contents of a trade and/or purchase, and confirm closure of transactions. A simple "thank you!" or "ok!" is all i'm looking for. I will not accept read-recipts as confirmation (dA Notes, Twitter, etc.) I will, however, accept Transfer notifications on ToyHouse as confirmations in trades.

  • As a general rule, my designs are not intended for nor priced for Commercial Use, so please: Do not use my designs for Commercial Purposes* or turn them into Species* without approaching me first.

  • I do NOT allow my art/designs to be used in NFT's or NFT-adjacent purposes, commissioned or not.

*RE: Commercial / Species

When Making Edits/Redesigning

You may edit the design however you please, so long as you adhere to the below:

  • Do not drastically edit beyond recognition. When placing the original and an update side by side, you should be able to clearly tell that they're the same character.

  • Do not whitewash designs made by me (where applicable, i.e. humanoid designs). You may darken and otherwise adjust skintones as you please, but do not make darker characters lighter.

  • Do not make edits to the original art, and do not attempt to remove/relocate my signature.

  • Please use a base (with permission), commission someone, or draw the updated art yourself if you are updating the design.

When Rehoming

  • Let me know when you are rehoming one of my designs, and to whom it's going. This is for me to keep track of where they are, to prevent scamming/theft, and to check that the recipient isn't on my own private blacklist.

  • Please don't rehome my designs through Amino. I have not dealt with the site myself, but I've heard many a horror story of scams and resells of designs someone does not own. I'd rather avoid the issue altogether if possible.

  • Make sure the next owner is aware of this ToS.

  • Optional, but give me a ping if you put em up for offers! I might be interested in gettin some back! ;^)

Sale / Trade / Gift

  • Gifting and trading is fine! Please be respectful and responsible, though! I'd prefer not to see my designs be used as mere fodder.

  • Do not resell designs for more than you paid unless REASONABLY adding on the worth of commissioned or personal art. Art made as a gift/trade may not be used to raise the resell price. Please refrain from creating art for a design purely to inflate their price in sales.

Purchasing

All Sales are Final. Unwarranted Charge-Backs will result in immediate, public Blacklisting and Blocking. If there was a mistake, get in touch Immediately.Payment is required Up Front.

  • When buying from me, be able to or ready to pay within 48 hours of claim and confirmation. No transfers, if applicable, will begin until then.

  • ---- I'm open to discussions about holds and payment plans for things $100 and higher! Generally, I'd prefer to keep holds under 2 weeks and plans no longer than one month. Lengths are of course dependent on amount, and are case-by-case! Please communicate with me on these!!

  • When trading with me (via other characters/customs/art), please be able to complete work within one month or your normal turnaround period for your art/customs!! No transfers will begin until then.

  • ---- Again, completion length is up for discussion depending on amount/complexity!! Please communicate with me!!

  • Failure to complete payment with no clear attempt at notifying me will result in your claim being revoked, and the design being put back out for offers, or handed to the next interested party. I will not chase down customers past one (1) reminder.


If you have any questions or concerns, please PM me on any site you find me on!!

FAQ

What Programs/Tablet do you use?
Clip Studio Paint + Paint Tool SAI (2)! More often CSP.
I use a Cintiq 13HD and/or a Cintiq Companion 2! I am looking to upgrade to a bigger screen someday... Both screens are rather small for my poor hand.I also use an 8Bitdo bluetooth controller for my hotkeys! I have the bigger version that has ~22 buttons on it that you can program with a 3rd party tool! It's been super helpful qwq!!


What brushes do you use?
[[ TBA, someday i will get to this... i have a lotta favs <:D;; ]]


I don't have PayPal, how can I pay you?
At the moment I only accept payments through PayPal, as it's the only service I unerstand qwq! However, it's possible to pay an invoice with a credit/debit card instead if need be! I'd send you a direct link to the invoice instead of sending it to your PP address.


I'm a minor! Can I still get art from you?
Yes and no! I'm not comfortable accepting money from minors, because I can't guarantee I won't be charged back by an angry parent... With the potential for it or something similar to damage me financially, and moreso legally, I'd prefer to just remove the chance altogether.
On the other hand, I generally don't mind paying minors for Art or Designs that I'll receive! We're all saving for something!Art and Design TRADES, however, are totally on the table!

*RE: Commercial Usage + Closed/Open Species:

Last Updated: May 30th, 2021A general blanket rule is, my designs are not intended nor priced accordingly for Commercial Use, nor do I desire my designs to be turned into OPEN/CLOSED species on any site.HOWEVER:

  • If possible, please ask me about Commercial Use before you purchase a design from me. There will likely be a Commercial Use Fee.

  • If you find that you've grown so attached to a character I have designed and wish to use their design in something commercial (comics, games, VN's, etc.) Please approach me and talk to me about it. I am not cruel, just very wary! I'm also likely interested in your idea, I'd love to know what they'd be going into!

  • If you find you have the passion to create a species and wish to develop a community around it, please approach me about it first. I don't want and will not tolerate a design I've made being turned into a massive cash-grab (I do understand that some very passionate projects fail, though)

  • You may turn one-offs into private species for headworlds or personal stories; all I ask is that you don't make a billion, nor are they separated and adopted off separately from the original design without changing their species.

TL;DR Please just ask me before you start planning anything.If you're going to buy a design from me with the intention of using it commercially, give me a heads up beforehand!
If you own one by me and end up wanting to do something commercial with it, just come say hey!!
