Please read in full before contacting me with requests or questions!
STEP 1: Send me a note with your commission request.
ALSO: All communication should be via notes on DA. I might agree to email exchanges but it's better if the paper trail is kept as simple as possible.
The final image will be a size of your choosing, within reason. My working files are in the range of 2500x3300 to 6500x10000 pixels. The images I post on DA are usually around one-half to one-fifth that size. Smaller files can be sent via email. Larger files can be upwards of 50MB in size, in which case an alternate delivery option (Dropbox, MediaFire, etc) may be required.
Payment is via Paypal. My apologies to anyone who does not or cannot use Paypal! In the future I may accept payment via other means but for now this is the only option I am offering. Payment is required upon completion. When the work is finished I will send you a Paypal invoice.
Once payment is confirmed you will receive your image in the size and format you choose (JPG and PNG are the most common, but I can provide many other formats). I can also provide the PSD file (version CC2017) with the original scan and separate layers (if it is a color image) upon request. Please note that this is likely to be a very large (100-500+ MB) file!

Example line art and colors:
If it's not clear, color tends to slow things down significantly for me and time is money. Most of my line art is very simple because I plan to color it, but if you commission a B&W image I will add the necessary details and shadows.
There aren't many things that offend me. A peek through my gallery should make clear that I am comfortable doing pin-ups and stuff that's a bit outside of the mainstream. My attitude is that there is nothing wrong with asking for something. The worst that will happen is that I will refuse. The more hardcore the request, the farther you move me out of my comfort zone. But I don't know how that will affect quality until such time as we try.
There are some things that I will not draw. This list is not comprehensive but should give you an idea of where I draw the line (err, pun not intended):
1. I won't draw anything depicting children or animals being abused, sexually or physically or otherwise. This includes requests to draw a character that is actually an adult but looks like a child/teenager. This does not necessarily include anthropomorphic characters-- I will take those on a case-by-case basis, but I am not going to humor any attempts at blurring the lines of what is or isn't acceptable.
2. I won't draw depictions of rape. There is a potential gray area here: a BDSM scene might not make it clear whether the action is consensual or not. I'll take those on a case-by-case basis with the same caveat: if I'm not comfortable doing it, lengthy explanations about why it's really not what it seems will not change my mind.
3. I might not draw ideologically offensive images. That's also on a case-by-case basis though I'm less likely to object to this than to the previous items on the list.
4. Anything else should be fair game, otherwise I will let you know if what you are asking for is something I will not draw.
If you have any questions, please send me a note.
And now... PATREON!
Yes, I am on Patreon. My page is www.patreon.com/miltonteruel
All Patreon posts prior to August 26th 2017 are open to the public. Future content is restricted to Patrons only. At present I will be posting at least one patron-only image or page every month, but that number will likely be higher.
I have not yet created content tiers-- for now, your support will allow you to see all of the content I upload each month. I am considering adding some tiers that will allow patrons to make requests each month, but I have not determined how those tiers will work yet or if I will try something else instead.
In the meantime, I have so few patrons that those who sign up can help to decide what gets posted each month. Hey, if you're one of the few putting money in my pocket, you're one of the few who gets to help shape the content! If the list of supporters grows large enough I'll probably have polls to determine what gets priority in any given month. You gimme what I need, and I'll give you what you want!
