Workflow

Please note,  commissions are not worked on in the order  they are received. If you have a deadline for your piece, please tell us ahead of time to see if we can meet it. 

 

  • When work on your commission is started, you will be sent updates loosely in the following order: 

 

WIP ⇒ Lines ⇒ Base Colors ⇒ Final render ⇒ Any Additional Details

 

  • If you would like additional updated, please let us know ahead of time so we can accommodate you. 

  • Not all commissions will include all of these steps, but will still follow this general order.

Changes to Your Commission

  • During the WIP phase, all changes will be free within reason. 

    • Repeated attempts to change entire poses, make edits, etc. during the WIP phase may result in rejection of your commission. ​

  • After the WIP is approved, a few minor changes are allowed at no additional cost. Multiple minor changes or major changes will incur an additional charge. What is considered a minor or major change is at the discretion of the artist. 

    • Charges will start at $5 and increase from there.

  • Changes to completed work are not accepted unless the changes are minor. (ie. adding a scar or a birthmark)

Commercial Terms

What qualifies as "commercial" for BANMOKU: 

  • Use in stream assets such as overlays, png avatars, panel art, etc. ​

  • Use for merchandise designs 

  • Use as official Vtuber references 

  • Use in promotional materials on Twitch and Social Media 

Commercial rights for all artwork is available upon request and will incur an additional, variable  fee depending on what the commission is being used for. (ie: merchandise fees are different from stream art fees) Please tell us ahead of time if you would like to use your art for commercial purposes. If you would like to inquire about commercial rights for artwork that you’ve previously obtained, please reach out to us via email.  

For merchandise designs: 

  • We do not offer manufacturing packages for any merchandise at this time. We can offer advise based on our own experiences.

    • BANMOKU is not responsible for any issues in manufacturing. ​

  • If you are looking for merchandise that is not described on the website, you are welcome to email us with the header [MERCHANDISE INQUIRY]. 

  • For custom merchandise requests, please include a template, or sizing for the merchandise you’re looking for as well as the character reference.

  • An inquiry does not guarantee acceptance.  

  • We do not know or  have recommendations for manufacturing on products we have not previously created. 

Please note that in some cases, we may require contracts for commercial works. This will be done at our discretion and we will always let you know before any work or payment is exchanged. 

Final Notes

  • If you are not happy with your commission, please let us know! We want our commissioners to be happy with their purchases and will do our best to make sure it's to your liking.​​

  • Please understand that while your characters are all amazing, we do not accept commissions unless we feel we can draw the character well. 

  • If you file a chargeback against us after work has been completed, we will assume you are a scammer. You will be blacklisted and publicly called out to warn other artists. There are no exceptions for this.
