I'm Caytlin Vilbrandt

Artist & Storyteller

I am a disabled artist who lives and breathes comics, storytelling, art, and design. I write, draw, and maintain my webcomic Tamberlane for my day job, but I also do illustration and graphic design on the side. When I'm not scrawling stories, I'm usually dabbling in coding or game design, reading a heckton of books, or watching media analysis on YouTube! I live with my lovely husband and two silly cats in Seattle, Washington.

WHEN DO COMMISSIONS OPEN?

Due to my varied obligations as well as my chronic illness, I open for commissions extremely rarely. When I do, I announce it first to my $50+ patrons on the #cayts-commissions channel on the Foxglove Comics Discord, and then on my Twitter 24 hours later.Every once in a while, I do participate in charity or giveaway streams where I offer sketch commissions. Keep an eye on my Twitter for those announcements.Finally, by far the easiest way to get a commission is to support my Patreon:

  • Patrons paying $50 or above get quarterly single-character sketches.

  • Patrons paying $100 or more get quarterly single-character sketches OR 1 telegram sticker OR a previous sketch colored.

  • $250 folks get monthly colored 2-character sketches or 2 telegram stickers.

WANT A DISCOUNT? FIRST DIBS?

Supporters on the Tamberlane Patreon at $25 or above get special deals for commissions!

  • $25 patrons get a Pink Discount of 15%.

  • Patrons paying $50 or above get first dibs on the rare times I offer commissions.

  • Patrons paying $100 or more get a Blue Discount of 25%!

Discounted prices are listed on each commission type, with the full price first, then the 15% discount and then the 25% discount!

This is a truly collaborative experience as we work closely together to make the best possible outcome, together.

FULL COMMERCIAL RIGHTS

Depends
If you would like to purchase the full commercial rights to the artwork, such that I am not able to sell the artwork myself at all and you are able to use it worldwide and without limit, please contact me at artist@cvilbrandt.com. For commercial work of this scope, the prices are quite different and are on a case-by-case basis.

Make sure you check out the Terms of Service before applying!

If there is no link to a form below, that means I am not currently open for commissions.

Terms of Service

By commissioning me (Caytlin Vilbrandt), you (the client) agree to the following terms and conditions. If any of this is unclear, or you have questions, please ask before submitting a commission!

Prices & Payment

  • All commissions will be conducted via Ko-Fi.

See my commissions page or the commission advertisement if applicable for current prices.

Request Restrictions

I reserve the right to decline any commission for any reason without explanation.
You must be 18 years or older to commission me.
If you're not sure what I'll draw, feel free to ask!

I enjoy drawing things like...

  • Anthros, animals, humans

  • Retro anime styles

Examples of things that incur a complexity fee...

  • Highly structured backgrounds, like a city

I will not draw things...

  • ...that are NSFW/fetish material, unless I am specifically advertising commissions as Zesty Marmalade. For more information on what I will accept for NSFW, see my NSFW Request Restrictions

Conduct & Process

I will handle all correspondence in a respectful manner, and ask that you do the same! I will reject all business from anyone who is rude to me, my mods, my fans, or anyone in the stream. (See Refunds and Cancellation)PLEASE NOTE: Unless otherwise noted, I generally do not do my commissions as First Come, First Served. I select commissions based on how much I like the ideas and characters, and what sounds most fun to me. Remaining time and detail requirements also play into my choices.Here's the typical process for commissions:

  1. You read the TOS. (Hi! You're here!)

  2. Purchase your requested commission on my Ko-Fi commissions page.

  3. If you are not sure whether your commission request qualifies as complex, please feel free to ask me!

  4. If your commission is rejected, I will message you on Ko-Fi with the reason why and refund your request.

  5. If your commission is part of a stream, I will add you to the queue.

  6. If your commission is a longer term commission, I will email you at the address you provided and note the commission details, the total for your piece including complexity fees, the estimated delivery window, and any questions I have.

  7. If I determine your request incurs complexity fees, I will contact you and invoice you via PayPal. Payment MUST be received before I start your commission.

  8. If your commission came with revisions or WIPs, I will email you at different steps of the commission accordingly.

  9. When your piece is done, the final file(s) will be emailed to you. I will be posting all finished pieces on my Twitter and Patreon. If you wish to be credited, please be sure to leave your usernames in the correct field on the form (if applicable)!

Refunds and Cancellation

I reserve the right to decline or cancel a commission for any reason, without explanation. If I cancel your commission due to poor behavior towards myself or others, you will not receive a refund.You may cancel your commission before I finish it. You will receive a full refund if I have yet to start working on it. Once work is started, partial refunds will be offered based on what has already been finished.

‼️ Do NOT file a chargeback as a means to receive a refund.‼️
Contact me instead so that I may simply send the money back myself. If a chargeback is filed against me without my consent:

  • You will be forbidden from ever commissioning me in the future.

  • You will relinquish ALL rights granted by me to use my work, both commercially and non-commercially.

  • All correspondence between us may be shared with other artists, with PayPal during dispute resolution, and even publicly at my own discretion.

Rights to Use My Work

You are paying me for the time, resources, and tools used for creating your custom artwork, not for the artwork itself or anything it depicts. You may purchase the copyright or any additional rights from me separately at a significantly increased price.

I, the Artist, ...

  • ...may distribute my work freely and at my own discretion.

  • ...may use my work for commercial purposes, unless you purchase those rights from me, in which case I may NOT do so.

  • ...shall NOT claim your characters or ideas as my own.

You, the Client, ...

  • ...may crop and resize my work for use as a personal avatar without credit.

  • ...may use my work for badges and emoji on Twitch on the condition that credit is given to me in your channel info.

  • ...may crop and resize my work for use as emoji elsewhere without credit, and may grant others permission to do the same.

  • If you'd like to restrict who may do this, you yourself must enforce it.

  • ...may edit my work, or have others edit my work, on the condition that you state clearly that it is derivative of my work and NOT a collaboration, and link directly to the original as posted publicly by me.

  • This does NOT grant you permission to remove my signature/watermark, but you may add your own as well.

  • Selling such a derivative work is NEVER permitted.

  • If the original is not publicly posted by me, a link to this website is acceptable.

Anyone, Including the Client, ...

  • ...may print out my work for personal non-commercial purposes.

  • ...may trace my work for inking or drawing practice on the condition that they link directly to the original as posted publicly by me if the derivative work is ever shared.

  • Selling such a derivative work is NEVER permitted.

  • ...shall NOT remove or obfuscate my signature/watermark without prior permission, or take credit for creating my work. This would be considered theft.

  • ...shall NOT mass-produce or sell items that include my work or otherwise use my work to gain profit without first acquiring written permission from me and all other copyright holders who may have their property depicted in the work.

  • This permission from me comes at an additional charge. Feel free to contact me for more info.

Are you over the age of 18 and therefore of legal age to view adult content?

Zesty Marmalade

I enjoy doing NSFW/adult artwork from time to time, and when I do, I publish it under the name Zesty_Marmalade. I am a firm believer that sexuality should be a healthy, non-shameful thing, and that there is, for most folks, a strong line between fantasy and reality. Although there are many topics I won't entertain in my artwork, some folks unfamiliar with my NSFW side may be surprised by some of the subject matter I put out. Proceed at your own risk! ;)Note: all NSFW requests must also abide by the request guidelines set out in the Terms of Service.
