Design Updates

Interested in a design update? You can find all the information for that commission type here on this page!

What is a Design Update?

Think of it as a mystery makeover! Basically, you show me a design that you have, and I combine some information you give me with my own artistic license to surprise you with something new.
This is intended for character designs that are in need of some refreshing, and that you don't have anything too specific in mind for.

How is a Design Update different from a Custom?

Design updates lean heavily on the original design, and are more focused on tweaking and polishing it to make something new but still clearly connected to the original. Custom designs, on the other hand, are focused on building a brand new design from the ground up. If your idea results in a completely different design or you have a very specific, focused vision, this commission type is not a good fit.

Submitting your information

Please read the information carefully. Slots open in limited quantities on regular commission posts.
If I feel your requests are too specific, I may decline the commission.

This does NOT come with a work in progress stage. You will receive the design fully finished. This works best if you like my design sense and are open to being surprised!
