Ericka Hampton’s Commission Info
Commission Status: Open
Art Trades: Contact me can can talk about it
Requests/Freebies:Possibly for the right project
IMPORTANT NOTE: In requesting a commission from myself, Ericka Hampton, the commissioner agrees to read and adhere to the following information provided in the following document. The following commission prices are for NON-COMMERCIAL COMMISSIONS Only: They are not to be resold or marketed, and while the commissioner retains copyright to the subject their commission depicts, I retain copyright to the image itself. If you would like commercial artwork created for publication or professional use of any kind, you are welcome to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a contract bid.
Payment: Payments are to be made up front. At the moment, I’m only able to accept payments via Paypal. Please send payments as personal payments ONLY, as any other option would require extra fees. Please contact me for the proper email address needed to send payment via Paypal.
WAITING LIST: For anyone interested in snagging a commission slot as they free up, I'd be quiet happy to add you to my current waiting list. Anyone on the waiting list will be contacted first when commission slots become available, before I make any public announcements regarding available commission slots. Please review my commission information carefully and email me directly at email@example.com if you would like to be added.
The Process: I will be open for a set number of commission slots at a time, and will complete each commission in the order in which they are received. If you would like to acquire a commission, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org- please note that commission requests MUST be sent to this email address. I cannot take requests from website forums or comment sections, as I offer commissions on multiple websites, and it would be too complicated to run a first-come-first-serve request line in any other manner.
In your Commission Request Email, please include information on the type of commission you are interested in, along with a detailed description of your character(s), any specific details you would like to see portrayed such as pose, costuming or expression, as well as pre-existing reference images of your character(s). Please be very precise and detailed with what you would like (Unless you’d like to give me free reign creatively and have it be a surprise for you - I certainly wouldn’t complain there either! lol) as I wish nothing more then to see to it that you enjoy the end result. I will price your commission based on this email, and assign your work its slot.
NOTE: DO NOT, under any circumstance send me obscene or sexually explicit reference material for your character. I do not create pornographic artwork on commission. In turn, I do not want to stare at pornographic reference images for the 10-odd hours it may take me to complete a commission. If you sincerely do not have any other reference image of your character beyond those of an explicit nature, please censor the material before sending it my way. I withhold the right to deny a commission if a commissioner cannot respect this request.
Please be aware that I am working on multiple projects along side of commissions at any given time, including animated shorts and freelance projects - as a result, I divide my time between these things, and projects with strict commercial deadlines take priority out of necessity. I ask that my commissioners be understanding of my rather hectic schedule. Once you receive a slot, I require payment up front in full before I begin your image.
When I reach your slot, pending I have already received payment, I will contact you immediately to establish how long it will take to complete your image. That amount of time will begin once and only once I reach your individual commission slot, after completing the works of the commissioners in line before you.
As you could imagine, the length of time for each piece will vary depending on the complexity of the image itself - anywhere from two days to a week or two, pending the commissioner is prompt in responding to email correspondence. If anything were to come up that would cause me to take longer then expected on an image, I will contact you immediately to let you know. If I have not received payment by the time I reach your slot, your slot will be pushed back by one and the next commissioner in line will have their work completed first. (Please note that, outside of special circumstances, if I have not received payment within two weeks of assigning a commission slot, you will lose your spot entirely until you are ready to restart the commission process - this, out of fairness, frees up the space for able and waiting commissioners.)
During the creation process, you will receive two sketches via email. The first sketch gives you the opportunity to make revisions - this is your only chance to request revisions to your line art, so please use this opportunity wisely. The second sketch is a preview of what your final image will look like including the revisions you requested based on the first sketch. You will also receive the preliminary flat-color preview of their commission, with the opportunity to request revisions to the colors only. (Lines are final after their revision during the sketch stage.)
IMPORTANT: Again, commissions are allowed one revision to the image's line art sketch phase, and one revision to the image's flat colors in its flats stage. Lines and colors beyond these revisions are final. Maintaining minimal revisions allows me to keep commissions at a reasonable price for non-commercial purchasers, as it allows me to create them on a more time-friendly basis.
Any revisions requested beyond these two opportunities will automatically be charged a professional hourly rate of $25-$35 per hour, depending on the complexity of the revisions requested.Commissioners are requested to pay the additional fee up front before receiving the results of the additional revisions.
Commission List: Alongside email correspondence, you can track the progress of my commissions on my official art blog/ site. My Current Commission List is located at www.erickahamtonart.com
Content Restrictions: I will not illustrate pornographic or fetish-related images, anything involving hateful, racist, or bigoted imagery or symbolism, or excessive amounts of gore. I also will not draw nude characters for clients under the age of 18.
PLEASE NOTE: I reserve the right to add an additional by-case plus-charge for characters or images requiring an excess amount of detail to account for the extra time it would take to illustrate them. I also reserve the right to deny a commissioners offer if the content being requested is at all objectable to the rules previously stated.

*Note: Prices for logos which are considered commercial works have an additional fee attached to the existing price of the illustration. Contact me by e-mail for more information
Let Me Reiterate:
Please note that I accept commission requests through email to firstname.lastname@example.org only.
As I offer commissions through multiple different websites, I cannot accept commission requests through any other manner then through email . Requests made through forum commenting, DeviantArt Notes , journal or blog comments will likely be passed up or asked to email me directly with their offers - Commissioners should contact me directly at email@example.com to get their commission slot. It’s the most streamline way for me to keep everyone’s work in order on a fair, first-come-first-serve basis. Keeping all request correspondence via email will also allow me to spend less time trying to juggle messages from multiple sites, and more time creating as awesome a piece for you as I can manage - And that is, by all means, best for us all ;)
Thanks, everyone! ^_^
