General questions

Do you draw on paper or digitally?
I draw digitally only, but it's a lot like traditional drawing. The techniques differ a bit, but I still work from scratch.
Find some of my designs on my youtube channel.

What programs do you use?
I use Photoshop most of the time, it has everything I need.

Do you take on commission work?
Yes, I do take on commissions of character designs, creature designs, pet portraits, props, and the occasional minimalistic background.
Animal portraits | Character designs | Creature designs

Can you draw a portrait of my father/mother/sister/uncle etc?
Nope, I don't do this, that's a personal preference.

Can I commission you for something you didn't mention on your website?
You can always ask! I do my best to specialize in said things, but there are other things I can do too.

I like to commission you but I don't have the money to do so, what can I do?
Just like you, I need to pay the bills. At this moment I don't have a solution to this problem, but I'm looking into it!

Do you sell prints or products of your work?
Yes, I sell prints around the would through the services of Displate, this includes custom made art just for you, but this is very limiting when it comes to sizes and dimensions. If this service is not what you're looking for and you don't live in the Netherlands, I recommend seeking out a local print service, they sure can help you out! Instead of a physical print you will receive a digital file. The prices on my website are digital file only, printing services add to the price.
I also offer existing prints and products through Displate and Redbubble, go ahead and have a look!

Can I interview you for my blog/magazine/podcast etc.?
Maybe, the best way is just to contact me and tell me a bit more about what you would like to interview me about and what it's for!

What kind of info do I need to include in my character/creature/prop designs commission inquiry?

  • Is it a character, creature or hybrid design?
  • Are reference images available or does it need to be designed from scratch?
  • Do you need a portrait (headshot) or a full-body illustration?
  • Does your art need a detailed background or is a textured background enough?
  • A rough description of your creature, character or hybrid.
  • How many artworks do you need?
  • What is your deadline?
  • What will the artwork be used for?
  • Did you ever commission art before?


What kind of info do I need to include in my wildlife/pet/farmanimal commission inquiry?

  • Do you know this animal yourself?
  • Do you own the reference picture? If not, I will need written proof from the photographer that it's okay to duplicate the picture in an artistic way.
  • Do you want a portrait (headshot) or a full-body illustration?
  • Do you want a detailed background or a textured background?
  • Are there any touch-ups you'd like me to do?
  • What is your deadline?
  • Did you ever commission art before?


What is the process from A to Z when I commission you?

  1. We first have e-mail contact regarding the project to fill in the details and make sure we are on the same page.
  2. I will then summarize the things we discussed in an e-mail, to double-check and to have everything in one place.
  3. 50% of the payment needs to be paid to reserve your slot, after which I will start with your artwork on the given date.
  4. When I start with your artwork I give you a heads-up
  5. If it's a character/creature/prop design (something non-existent) I will send you a sketch or roughly colored piece to check in with you if I'm heading in the right direction.
  6. When everything on the artwork is in place (colors, shapes, eyes, nose, mouth, etc) I will send you the file, this counts for any artwork. If there seems to be anything off at this stage, I can still correct it.
  7. When approved I start working on the details, after which I will send you a finished draft of the artwork, minor details can be edited in this phase, but large changes are not possible anymore.
  8. When the final image is approved as well, you will receive the full-size  image after I received the second half of the payment.


Do you work with a contract?
Yes I do, that way we both know exactly what to expect!

How long does it take you to complete an artwork?
The actual artwork is usually done within one, at most two weeks, but there may be a waiting list, that's why you need to reserve a spot beforehand through payment. This waiting list may vary and sometimes slots open up, feel free to contact me to find out how long the current waiting list is.


How much in advance should I contact you if I want a commission done?
When you know you want to commission me, contact me right away. You could reserve a slot early if you know what you want to commission at any given time, but it will also prepare you if there happens to be a long waiting list at that point.



License questions

I want to commission you for commercial purposes, is that possible?
Yes, that's possible!

What does 'Only for personal projects and use' mean?
This only applies when you commission me for a personal artwork or buy an already existing artwork, these are artworks you cannot monetize in any way, shape, or form and when posted online, the proper reference to me is in place.

How do the different licenses work?

  • 'Personal use' cannot be monetized in any way, shape, or form, and when posted online, the proper reference to me is in place.
  • 'Commercial license' can be monetized up to 25000 pieces, reference to me is very much appreciated, but not mandatory.
  • 'Extended commercial license' can be monetized unlimited, reference to me is very much appreciated, but not mandatory.

Can I use your images for my logo/blog/website/business etc?
If you commissioned me for said images and have the proper license to do so: Sure. If you commissioned me for a personal piece, don't forget to reference me. For any other purpose: Please contact me beforehand.

Can I print any of your old works?
If you payed for them: Of course!




Payment questions


How do I pay you?
This can be done directly to my bank account or through Paypal.

Will i receive an invoice?
Yes, you will receive an invoice alongside the confirmation e-mail.

How about tax?

I don't include the tax in my commissions, you are not paying for it through me.


Social media

Can i share your work on social media?
This depends, just contact me beforehand and I can inform you about that.

I contacted you on social media or through mail but didn't get a reply, how come?
I'm being contacted a lot by many people day and night, eventhough I wish I could answer everyone every time, I can't sadly. When you contact me, make sure it's clear what you would like to discuss right away.
