Commissions

Greetings!
It's been a warm and beautiful week here in Squirrel Creek land! We're working hard to prepare for Kitsune Kon next weekend (March 20-22, 2015), and we're excited to be debuting some new products! In the meantime however, commissions still need to be created and sent to their new homes. But how does the commission process typically work? Well it varies slightly from person to person, but this is a general step-by-step:

a) Trading e-mails, to confirm ideas. You can contact us either through our Etsy Store: etsy.com/shop/squirrelcrkcreations or e-mail squirrel.creek.creations@ gmail.com
b) Agreeing on price. If you have a specific budget, we'll try our best to work within it. Commissions start as low as $30, and average around $65-$85. The more complex, the higher the price.
c) Once payment is sent, we'll send you concept sketches for your project. This is where the fun begins! While some of our sketches are drawn on paper, we also like to utilize drawing tablets and photo editing programs. That way we can make quick and easy changes to the concept designs. Want to see it in blue? No problem. Add polka dots? Can do! Photoshop makes these changes quick and easy so we can make the project you're envisioning.
d) Once the concept is agreed upon, we'll start on the project, sending periodic updates to make sure it's being completed to match your expectations. Depending on time and availability, we'll send progress pictures while working on your project. That way you can watch it come to life!
e) Final confirmation from you.
f) Final touches such as top coating.
g) We'll ship it out.
h) Enjoy your custom order!

What can we make for you? We've made tons of various projects in the past that vary from the very simple to a whole costume, mask, pants, armor and all! Some examples of what we've made in the past: Fursona masks, custom animals, pet masks, armor, winged-crowns, lower face masks, ocean scenery masks, capes, non-leather crown, giant squid plushies, custom eyepatches and more! We'll work hard to help make your vision come to life!

What can't we make? Although we'd love to be able to create everything and anything you have in mind, there are a few restrictions on what we can do. For example, we can't make anything copyrighted. If it's an original design, it has to be your creation or you have permission to use it; we don't want to step on anyone's toes! These are the main two no-nos for us.
Those are the basics for the commission process. Contact us anytime and we'll get back to you asap so we can start making your visions come true!
Cheers!
