Communication MochaWolfroo is a business and communication should be kept professional at any time. the artist will request one or more forms of communication, in order to communicate with the client before, during, and after the commission has been completed.

If the client ceases communication after the commission has been completed, a refund will not be made and the artwork will be kept until a response has been received. the artist and the client may have an online alias that they prefer to be spoken to as (i.e. in place of their real names).

However, if the client does not wish for the stream to contain their commission, they have the right to express that decision to the artist. the artist will respect the client’s choice. If the client requests an adjustment to a part of the work that is already completed, the artist may not be able to complete the adjustment. Such modifications should be noted at the appropriate time, when an image is given to the client for approval.
Transactions and Pricing MochaWolfroo only accepts commission work through paypal, as it is simple to use and secure. When the final details of the commission are discussed, the artist will ask for an email address to send a commission invoice to. the artist does not accept payment through the use of the “Paypal Me” service. If a payment can not be paid, the artist will keep the client in their queue, however, the client's artwork will not be delivered until the amount agreed upon is paid in its entirety. the artist will only accept partial payments upon request or on special occasions. For example, if the client requests multiple commissions and they only send payment, which amounts to the equivalent of one of their commissions. the artist does not do work “for exposure”, by any means of the definition. If the commission requested involves a complicated design of a character or a scene that requires more time than is usually expected, or if the client requests an expedited delivery, the artist reserves the right to raise the amount on the quote above the listed base price, as they see fit. MochaWolfroo does not work on a “First in, First Out'' basis. the artist does not rush commissions for a set deadline and due to the artist’s current life conditions, the time to complete the commission may vary. These conditions include, but are not limited to, free availability, local employment scheduling or the requested level of detail of the commission (i.e. full render). If the client requires the commission to be done by a specific date, the artist can prioritize the commission requested, however, they may request an additional fee for inconvenience if the requested date is less than one week prior.
Artist Rights the artist reserves the right to refuse any and all types of commission for any reason. A commission will not be forced upon the artist by the client of any of their affiliates by means of blackmail, doxing, or the spreading of misinformation for the purpose of ill will. If such an attempt occurs, the artist has the right to refuse any future communication and business with the client in question. If “artistic liberty” is requested, the artist may work on the commission in any way they see fit. If a theme or specific feature is requested, the artist will make the best attempts to keep the commission with the specified conditions, as everything else will be dependent on the artist. The client may suggest changes to the work, however, if the client is unsatisfied with the final commission, the artist reserves the right to deny any more changes to the clients final product. For instance, if the commission work had a high level “finish”, and the time and effort to adjust the commission would be more work than what was paid for, the artist has the right to refuse to make the change.
