art usage

This section covers information regarding usage of my creations (illustration, comics, etc.) online, including but not limited to commissioned works, projects and more.

By default, all my creations are licensed with Creative Commons - Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0), which means:

  1. Share - You are free to copy and redistribute the material, as long as you fulfill the requirements on point number 2, 3 and 4.
  2. Attribution - There has to be a visible and clear credit to me, in the form of my account username (Konayachi) or my website (Konayachi.com) - whichever makes most sense, at a glance.
  3. Non-Commercial - You must not use the material for commercial purpose. However, you are free to contact me for licensing fees. Without such licence, I don't allow any commercial use of my art.
  4. NoDerivatives - You must not distribute my art if you modify, transform or build upon, without authorization.

commissions

This section covers information for clients who are considering to commission me and work with me.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions beforehand.

A. General

  1. By purchasing, you get the digital file(s) of the commission. There is no physical item(s) to be delivered.
  2. Due to the nature of the commission as custom orders, I cannot issue a refund. Also, I will only send invoice after our discussions have reached an agreement between both sides. Unless agreed in specific cases, there's no refund available.
  3. Prices are indicative, the final price may be different depending on the request itself.
  4. Credits are appreciated but not necessary. You can put "by Konayachi" or to tag me on platforms I'm on with "@Konayachi".
  5. Without purchasing the Extras, commissions are strictly for personal use only.
  6. There will be a stamp + finishing date of production on each illustration.
  7. Removal of stamp is prohibited unless you get for the Stamp Removal upgrade.

B. Ordering Steps

  1. First, read this Terms of Service page completely. By ordering, you acknowledge that you have read and agreed with my Terms of Service.
  2. Choose the commission types that you want from the commissions page. The availability and prices change over the time, so please keep that in mind.
  3. I may refuse to work on the commission if I think I cannot deliver my best to your expectations due to my skills limit.
  4. Send me an email to initiate order. Discussions will be carried through email after that.
    Alternatively, you can also start conversation through my Fiverr page.
  5. I'll let you know when I'm going to start working. Normally it is after I receive the payment.
  6. Any platform fees are already included in the prices.
  7. WIP is available upon requests during discussion process. Without requests, I may not provide WIP at all because I work in a fast manner.
  8. Depending on the work queue, complexity of the commissions and the quantity of your commissions, the commissions may take from 3-4 days or up to several weeks. If you wish to tighten the deadline, let me know and I will arrange it for an extra fee.
  9. I am open to some small revisions for free (3 round exchanges).
  10. The finished files will be full-sized + stamped. If you buy copyright/ownership transfer licence, there will be no stamp on the illustration.

C. Rights and Licensing

  1. By default, the artist (Konayachi) is the owner of the commissioned work. I may put the commissioned works on my portfolio or my website. I will always write your provided name/ @username attached on the work. Let me know if you want to be addressed as anonymous in this matter.
  2. All commissions are purposed for personal use only. Personal use includes: PC wallpaper, phone wallpaper, self-print for your own belongings or any use with no profit made.
  3. I also offer upgrades which will allow you to use the commissions more widely:
    • Commercial Use A (your commissions will be used as part of your branding; e.g. banner, avatar, mascot, icon, etc.) = final price x 2
    • Commercial Use B (you can make unlimited profit from the commissions) = final price x 10
    • Exclusivity (your commissions will not appear on my website and SNS for n years) = final price + (final price x (2 x n years)/10)
    • Stamp Removal = final price x 15
    • Copyright (ownership transfer) = final price x 20
    If you are confused, reach me out and I'll help you figuring things out!
  4. Commercial Use A upgrade allows you to use the commissioned works as part of your branding. Allowed uses include, but not limited to profile banner, avatar, mascot, icon, etc.
  5. Commercial Use B upgrade provides you perpetual, irrevocable rights over the use of the work. However, it is not ownership transfer. Commercial Use includes: merchandises production (t-shirt, stickers, etc.), business logo, commercial posters, anything which will generate profit for you. Purchasing Commercial Use B grants you the right from Commercial Use A as well.
  6. Exclusivity upgrade has expiry date based on how many years you purchased it for. Exclusivity will keep your commissions private for certain number of years (n) which will fully depend on how many years do you wish to purchase the upgrade.
  7. Stamp Removal upgrade removes my stamp and date on the commissioned works. Commercial Use is offered for free with this upgrade.
