How does it work to get a custom artwork.
1: You contact me and explain me what you would like. We agree on a price.
2: I send you a couple of sketches/mockups to see in which direction the work will go.
3: Once you'decided on one of these sketches, I will send you the invoice.
From that on, half of the final amount will be due. I only take bank transfer within the EU and Bitcoin. I even make a 10% discount if you choose to do so!
4: I will start the inking, colouring upon reception of this advance.
5: Once the artwork is done and you agree with it, the second half of the final sum is due. The final high-resolution file is delivered via Email upon reception of the last payment.
