hi there!

My name is Raven, and I am an artist and writer based in Australia (Awabakal country). My work is heavily informed by life as a queer autistic person.My current art practice is predominantly fanart and digital illustration, but I am always working to expand my practice. My academic experience deals primarily with the role of online meme culture in shaping contemporary art.

And while you're here, please consider donating to the UNRWA or PCRF, or sending eSims to Gaza.

Note: I may ask you to sign a contract for some commissions, e.g. for commercial use.

Pricing

  • A standard commission is a character commission (e.g. fanart, OCs, and portraits) in my usual art style. This can include people, anthros, and large animals, fictional or otherwise. These commissions use the price list on the previous page.

  • Payment is due upfront, and you will not receive the commission until the cost is paid.

  • Projects that can’t be charged on my standard table (e.g. logos or animation) are considered professional work, and will be charged at an hourly rate - please contact me for information!

Timeframes

  • If it is a standard illustration, you can expect the completed commission within a couple of weeks.

  • If there is a deadline, please let me know as soon as possible!

  • I can't be held responsible for delays if the client doesn't respond to questions or checkups.

  • I allow for revisions during the sketching process, and minor changes to lineart and colour.

Usage

  • Once the commission is paid for in full, you have it to keep for personal use forever (eg. posting on social media or printing onto something for your own use) as long as it is not used to promote sexism, racism, homophobia, or other hateful ideas.

  • If you plan on using my art commercially, you must discuss this with me beforehand. I may ask you to agree to additional rules and fees.

  • You must not claim that the art is your own work. Please credit me if people ask who made it!

  • I can use the artwork in portfolios, social media posts, etc unless discussed otherwise.

  • You do not have the right to mint any of my work as an NFT ("non-fungible token"), or to use my work for NFT or cryptocurrency-related projects, even if you commissioned it.

  • I do not consent to any of my work, including commissions, being used to train AI ("Artificial Intelligence") image generators or being used in projects that involve AI art.

NSFW Art

  • NSFW ("not safe for work") mostly refers to art of a sexual nature, but may also include general nudity, gore, and common triggers.

  • I won't draw NSFW art for clients that are under the age of 18, and might do a background check to confirm your age.

  • I will not depict characters as under 18 in NSFW work, and have the right to deny your request if I am uncomfortable with drawing the given character/s in an explicit way.
