HOW TO BOOK YOUR CHARACTER ART?
Want to see your characters come to life? Character art is a great addition for your book (could be used as a full page chapter header), to create character cards or many other uses. Character art comes without title treatment and focusses mainly on the character. Ready for going on an epic adventure together? ;-)
STOCKS USED FOR CHARACTER ART
Any third-party stocks used to create your character art are purchased from legitimate and respectable stock sites (such as Depositphotos, Shutterstock, ...), under a basic license (max. 500.000 end products). A basic license means that you cannot sell merchandising (like e.g. mugs). It is possible though if you purchase an extended license yourself (you’ll receive a stock list at the end). This also means that I do not use AI works generated by an AI bot.
All payments are done through PayPal. A payment plan is possible, but please contact me first to discuss possibilities. Add-ons can be added at any time, for an addition fee (see current price list).
REFUNDS AND CANCELLATIONS
Cancellation before start: if the client chooses to cancel the booking before the scheduled date, the booking fee ($50) will serve as a cancellation fee (non-refundable). If already started working at the project, the client is owed 50% of the project total sum. This is to cover resources and the time taking during the project up to the point of cancellation. If cancellation is the case, client will have no rights to any mockups sent to the client and agrees to destroy them. Any tracked changes or work unfinished will not be implemented.
When buying character art created by Secrèt D’artiste, you are purchasing the right to "use" the artwork, not the copyright on the design itself. The copyright remains from Secrèt D’artiste, unless stated otherwise. If you want to obtain full copyright, please get in touch. You have my full approval to use the design of the character art to make your own marketing materials for your book such as: banners, profile pictures, headers for various social media platforms, your website, etc… I can help you with this, just let me know ;-)
WHAT NOT TO DO
You are not allowed to make changes to the character art, unless agreed upfront.
You are not allowed to give this to another designer or another agency, to put on text/typography on my artwork.
You are not allowed to copy/paste pieces from the character art and create your own artwork.
You are not allowed to use my designs to make series continuations yourself, unless agreed upfront.
You are not allowed to resell your character art, unless you have a written permission from me.
