Terms of Service

General Info

By commissioning me, you agree to abide by these terms and are confirming that you are 18 years or older.

  • Please keep in mind that I work up to 40 hours a week at my RL job. I try to get commissions finished within the span of 3 months, but if you find yourself waiting longer than that please feel free to ask for an update. I will always try and communicate with you on the status of your commission!

  • I may be better with some characters/species than others. While I can do almost any species, my style unfortunately does not do justice for some. I haven't come across any yet, but with this in mind, know that I'll never turn down a challenge.* If you aren't satisfied with your finished piece, please tell me and I'll try to fix it up for you the best I can!

  • Species I can do: Canines (wolves, dogs, foxes, etc.), Felines (lions, tigers, house cats, etc.), Ungulates (horses, antelope, hooved mammals), Primates (humans, apes, monkeys) birds, bats, bears, and some fantasy species (ask). If you have a custom species you'd like me to try, feel free to ask me about it before commissioning me! I'm still practicing reptiles, but I can try one if you'd like.

  • I reserve the right to refuse a commission if I am uncomfortable with it, likewise, I will not take commissions or work with people who make me uncomfortable.

  • You may not alter my work. I keep my .psd files, so if you need something fixed I will fix it for you. This is only for small things such as a marking I may have missed or if your reference has been updated. If your commission has been completed and you change your mind about bigger details such as a pose or expression, I will not accept the request.

  • I will not add on to a commission that has already been completed. This includes adding another character or element to the piece.

  • You will receive your commission as a .png; I do not give .psd files.

  • Animals/most fantasy creatures

  • All payments are to be paid upfront. I will not start your piece until payment is received!

  • If you need to delay payment for whatever reason, I'm very understanding. Just talk to me about it beforehand and we can work something out.

  • Most sales are final. I do not give refunds after a commission has been completed.

  • I reserve the right to cancel a commission at any time. (i.e if something happens and I’m truly unable to fulfill your commission or if my TOS has been breached) If it has already been paid, I will give a full refund.

  • If you decide to cancel your commission and I haven’t started working on it, I will refund you fully. If I’ve already started work on it, I will deduct the amount off your payment for the work that I’ve completed.

  • I take payments via PayPal only. Please send payments to [email protected] under FRIENDS AND FAMILY.


  • Once you pay for this work, it is yours. You may do what you wish with it; upload wherever you please to use as an avatar, forum icon, social media avatar, etc. However, please give me proper credit when it's due by mentioning me or linking to my accounts.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why the handle "Why So Melancholy"?

My username comes from the line in Sleeping Beauty when Maleficent visits Prince Phillip in his cell."Come now, Prince Phillip, why so melancholy? A glorious future lies before you - you, the destined hero, of a charming fairy tale come true."For some reason that singular line sticks with me and honestly, I have no idea why. It was my first url on tumblr I had that felt like it was something. And I guess it just carried on into my art handle. There's no sad story behind it or anything! I just like it.

What program do you use?

As of right now, I use Photoshop Elements 11 and a Huion Kamvas Pro 16 tablet!
