Frequently-Asked Questions

1. What formats and files do you deliver?

For artwork, I can provide high-resolution JPG, PNG and PDF formats. I can also provide AI and EPS files for vector artwork. If you need layered art in PSD format (Photoshop) or as PNGs, let me know early. Animated work can be provided in MP4, GIF or JPG/PNG sequences.

 

This is original art created for the project you specify. If full copyright or non-disclosure is required, there might be an additional charge. Please do communicate such requirements early on!

 

I might be showcasing work I have done on my portfolio and list the clients, unless a non-disclosure is agreed on before the commencement of the project.

2. How can I make payments and what are the milestone payments?

 

Larger projects require milestone payments—mostly at 50% completion. High-quality files are released after the final payment. Depending on the scope, I might request an advance. You can transfer payments to my Wise borderless account, which accepts USD, Euro and GBP. It works similar to a direct bank transfer to a local bank in your country.

If you have a Wise account, you can simply transfer funds from that. Wise is fast, less costly than Paypal, and they have the best exchange rates. I can use my account to send you US, EU or UK bank details to facilitate fund transfers. I'll email you the invoice and a payment link.

​3. Do you accept all projects?

 

No, I will only accept what fits my skillset and availability. I also do not produce art or animation I'm not comfortable working on. These include extreme gore, animal abuse and pornified content.

 

I don't accept character art projects that may objectify females (e.g. "fan service" in anime and games) or those meant for stories that contain smut. I'm vegan, so I can't take on advertising work related to meat, dairy and other animal products.
