DAZ 3D
FantasyBackgroundStore.com
FantasyBackgrounds.com

If you wish an image from a site not listed above, you will have to purchase it once I approve the image.

What forms of payment do you accept?  I only use PayPal.  Half of the payment is due after you sign the contract.  The remainder of the payment is due once the project has been completed.

How long does it take for a cover, graphic art, or romance trading cards to be completed?  Expect a waiting period of 3 days to 2 weeks.

What all is required of me?  I have created a questionnaire that you need to fill out and a contract that needs signed.  For Print, make sure you have the final edits in.  I will NOT create a print cover unless you have exact page counts.

How do you work?  I like to think of creating art as a journey--it takes time and there are many bumps in the road.  However, the journey is made much more simple when you allow me to create.  Give me freedom to interpret what you need.  I will always follow the questionnaire so you don't have to worry about receiving something that you didn't ask for.  And if you don't like what I have created, I will start again.

Do you have terms that I need to agree to?  Yes.  There is a contract you need to sign before I begin work on your project.

If you are feeling particularly pro-active and you wish to hire me, then the following are the questionnaires that I need you to answer. Please take your time in completing the questionnaire.  I will charge extra if you change your mind regarding colors, themes, etc.  After all, I have spent time creating what you asked for and if you decide you want something else, then that will take even more time.
