"help me pay my student loans!"

Commissions are SUPER CLOSED.



- Is this a fun, interesting, or exciting commission?
- Is this going to take a long time (not that that's a bad thing!)? A short time? Where does this fit my schedule?
- How long is the current queue?
- Do I desperately need money to pay bills this month?
- Does this client seem reliable, informed, and responsible?
- Do I just love this character or idea? I mean come on! I'm shallow! I like to draw things I like! You know I love fanart of certain things.

Please understand that I sometimes get a huge flood of notes and stuff, and I simply can't get back to everyone, let alone ACCEPT every commission. It's beyond me!


1. I'm in no way obligated to accept every commission offer! I can, will, and do pick and choose commission offers. I won't accept a commission for something I don't like or don't think is interesting. It isn't fair to you if I did, because my heart wouldn't be in it. And it's not fair to me, because frankly, I don't have to do something I don't want to do.

2. I'm in no way obligated to only accept commissions when I say I'm open. I take interesting commissions when they come! I won't say no to an awesome idea. I can, will, and do conduct private business when I choose to, even when commissions are closed!

3. I DO NOT GIVE PREVIEWS OR SKETCHES FOR YOU TO APPROVE. You won't see it until it's 100% done. *GASP!* Only commission me if you like my work a lot, and trust me to exercise slugbox-judgement. It's just faster this way. For everyone. You. Me. And other commissions waiting.

4. I may or may not stream your commission, with or without notifying you or your presence in the stream!

5. Human Cteno: $5000



These prices are ESTIMATES and AVERAGES!

Depending on how specific or open you are with your commission, and how complex the character is, the price will vary! If you say "Go nuts, do what you want." Your job will be much cheaper! If you say they have to be standing a certain way, or doing something specific, interacting with stuff in specific ways and from certain angles, your price will be MORE.

Character complexity is also something to consider! If you're OC has a billion buckles and colors... that's not necessarily as easy! If you want some giant tentacle orgy with specifcic tentacles and stuff, that might be more! Backgrounds can also add a big cost, as that's drawing a whole scene! If you just say "Tentacle hentai, GO!" that's cheaper! If you're a fan of an artist enough to commission them, you might as well give them freedom though, right?

Non-Humanoid characters are subject to the same prices!

2/3rd figure $50ish

Generally, Hentai starts at below-the-belt-nudity.
Obviously, hentai cannot be posted to deviantart. In which case you'll only be provided the full resolution image, and will be posted elsewhere.
- No lolicon.
- No gore.
- No transgender/shemales/etc.

Commissions include the high-resolution .png you can print, which is at least 8.5"x11", if not larger.

By default, I'll just come up with something nice for a background using basic colors, shapes, and such. I'll play around with it.  

Payments are done through Paypal only. Details given once commission has been set up. In your payment's note section, INCLUDE YOUR DEVIANTART NAME, or I might not know who it's from or for what...

Barring special cases, all payment is due up front. I'm fast, reliable, and cheaper than most other artists offering the same publicity and art. That's my policy. In addition, unlike most other commissions you can buy, I guarantee your completion dates up front, so no there are no "Hey, I wonder when I'll get my commission?" thoughts. You will KNOW when it is coming.

You will receive a GUARANTEE DATE once payment is received. The date is the GUARANTEED latest day your commission will be finished. I ALWAYS quote more time than I need. Life has a way of blowing up, and I don't want to be caught behind schedule. Generally it's a two or three weeks. Sometimes, however, it could be a few months. I've never been late on a commission. Ever.

I DO NOT give preview sketches for you to approve anymore! It slows everything down, and forces me to spend more time on sketches than I need to in order to "impress" clients. NO MORE! You know what my work looks like, so if you don't trust me to make it awesome without your input, don't commission me!


If a $1 payment comes before a $1,000 payment, the $1 job still gets priority for a slot.

I don't usually work on multiple jobs at once, since that holds up EVERYBODY. However, if I get art-blocked or something, I may work on commissions further down the queue to revitalize my spirit! I may even finish them first. HOWEVER, this will NOT affect the guarantee dates for ANY slot. Your guarantees can NOT be pushed back.

I don't reserve slots for the general public.

1. You CAN post the image online on your personal blogs, deviantart galleries, and sites.  I personally think this is a douche thing to do... since you can just as easily link the deviation I submit in a journal or something, but I won't complain. Except in that previous sentence.

2. You CAN make edits and crops to the image, assuming I am given credit. However, please do not post it to any groups.

3. You CAN print the image out as well, for personal use/entertainment.

4. You CANNOT sell the image online or through print. If you'd like to make money off my art, ask me how.

5. You CANNOT use the image in any advertising campaigns. If you'd like to do this, ask me how.

6. I reserve the right to post the images anywhere online, and can use it as PART of any future compilation print products or portfolios, digital or physical. However, I can NOT sell said work as a standalone piece. That right is yours alone. Again, If you'd like to keep the image private, or have me not post it, there may be fee, since commissions normally bring in needed publicity as well as funding.

If you'd like to remain anonymous about "certain" commissions, that's fine. However, YOU MUST TELL ME AHEAD OF TIME!! Be default, I'll list your DEVIANTART name on the queue AND on the commissioned piece, even if I post is elsewhere! If you don't want me to do that, you have to say so!

If you'd like to remain anonymous on the queue, I can post a _____plz icon instead. If that's not enough, I won't even put you on the queue at all if you don't want. You'll still recieve an ETA and guarantee, but it won't be public.

However, If you'd like to keep the image private, and only ever seen by you and I, tell me ahead of time. There IS an extra fee for this, since commissions bring in vital publicity as well as money.

The best way is through a deviantart note. DO NOT SEND ME A NOTE ON TUMBLR. Provide references!! PLEASE REMEMBER: Don't be disheartened if I don't get back to you for several days, weeks, or never at all. I get dozens of orders a week, and I simply can't take or respond to each one! Try again later!

I don't speak Japanese, Spanish, or leet. I speak and type in English, with punctuation and capitalization. I don't type in third person. If I can't read your note, I won't take the job. I probably just won't respond...

Hello, Mr. Slugbox. :o) Just wanted to greet myself to you again. Actually I wanted to ask you something if you don't mind. ?-)
MaciaPaladin Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2015
Here's an oddly specific question, or rather a series of ideas leading to a question:

- Hentai/pantsu fantasy comic with catgirls (some of it already exists online)
- Max 1x weekly
- You only work when the Patreon is up enough to cover your fees (running a campaign to try and hire an artist. We've done it before)

It's a longshot, but I'll never hit the jackpot if I never play the lottery. (of course, some would say, the best way to win is never to play lol)

Is this even remotely on the planet of interesting to you? Don't want to put too much detail here unless this is something you might want.

This is completely random ofc, but what program do you use to make these things digital?
Paradox-pony Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Hhh slug... I was wondering, is there any possible way you could take points? 

I don't actually have enough yet (I have about 20$//sob) but basically here is my situation,

Sadly I still live with my parents and I honestly don't have the guts to ask them to lend me 75$ to buy hentai, Nor do I have my own paypal account (though I DO have access to one of my parents account but I rather not use it in fear of them finding what I'm buying) I generally don't want my family to see this since, well its my family and i'd be essentially be buying porn

Is there any way if i get the point equivalent to 75$+ you could perhaps set up a commission widget so you can transfer the points to your paypal?

If not, I understand and I will find a way but I have always wanted to commission you so I really hope somehow I can do this.

I honestly do not expect you to answer considering how busy you must be, But if you do it would really be helpful, If not ill assume its a no and try to find another way

Oi.. I need more money. I have $40 on my PayPal. ;~; But out of curiosity, I have a Nepriem OC ([link]). What could you do with her? ouo? I've had her for a couple weeks now, I'm in love with this OC. I haven't given much thought as to what all I could do with her. n.n'
rozga-chan Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012
So are their no charcges for edits it the image does not come out the way we wanted it to, due to the no sketch approval and all.
Slugbox Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012
No edits. Please don't commission me if you don't trust me 100%. But commissions are closed, regardless. If you want more of a say in what you get, there are thousands and thousands of other artists you can hire!
rozga-chan Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012
NP, was just wondering that. I love your style to pieces, and wish to get something from you one day, but I better makes sure i have ever little detail covered if I only get one shot at it.

Hmmm, this seems like a good use of my blood money...

Problem is I'm not sure how to request my character. Do I come up with the pose or what she's doing or am I able to leave that up to you and your thoughts?

When my money comes in I would love to commission you. If you have the time. I'm Roxion on your streams. I'm relatively quiet, cause I'm kinda shy. But I have a girl character I would love to see in your style~
VideoG2 Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
'Bout to come across around 100 bucks, these prices are perfect for that!
Girlfriend loves your style, even drew your character and you ended up reblogging it on Tumblr, so I think I'ma buy one of these for her pretty soon. :D

In this context, art sexualising underage girls (or characters that look underage).

An underage anime girl
Miss-It-Girl Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2012
No, that would just be a loli. A lolicon is someone with a sexual attraction to young girls.

I think I should let you know, that your commission journal is an all-times reference to me, as it is the most complete, effective, mindful and honest description of all the stuff to be warned about; both the clients and us - the artists!

I'm writing an update to my commissions' terms and stuff, right now, and I couldn't help myself but to come back to take another read at yours, to make sure I'm not forgetting something that would later worry me for have not included. I seriously hate doing post-edits (and yet, I have to make them all the time) sigh

Thus, a THANKS to you for this, and my admiration for how frank and clearly you state your mind out over these matters.

So helpful. :,D
Slugbox Featured By Owner May 29, 2012
Feg! You are seriously an inspiration to me, and every time I see your works pop in my inbox I just get a big smile! I'm honored you find this all helpful! Really!!
