Sketches & Revisions

An initial sketch of the artwork will be provided for your confirmation. Once you have confirmed, no major changes or revisions can be made to the artwork.

Should these minor revisions be accepted, a maximum of 5 revisions is allowed. Each additional change will be chargeable thereafter.

However, in the event that The Artsy Whim is not able to successfully complete the commission due to reasons not mentioned herewith, a refund will be processed.

The Artsy Whim reserves the right to decline or cancel any commissions that depicts dangerous or derogatory content, sexually explicit content, and any other types of content that may otherwise violate personal terms.
