Commission Info

SDink's Commissions

STARTING DECEMBER 1st 2012 I will be raising my prices to $150.00

Commission Status:

I Now have a job so I do not think I will be taking on anymore commissions, so sorry but thank you for your continued support ^_^


How It Works

1) I will make a post stating when I will be taking commissions. I will then make another post on that day and time and the first people that post in that thread will get the slots.

2) If you get a slot email me and make arrangements to send head and fill out face up form.

6) I receive head and paint it then take pics for you.

7) Once approved to your liking I will Invoice you via pay pal. Once I receive payment, I will mail out your head. For international orders, I will only be able to ship on Saturdays.

~Turnaround Time will be one 2 weeks from the time you send me your head, (usually quicker but I am giving myself some leeway) I would also prefer to receive the head at the beginning of the month to keep true to my schedule.I'm sorry to have to do it this way but I cannot think of another and I don't ever do waiting lists. For now I am only doing face ups as I cannot commit to anything bigger at this time.Please follow the status updates via my Twitter I post the progression of your status of your commission there.

~Important Information:


Basic Face Up: {YO, MSD, SD and Larger}.........$150.00

What this includes:

Airbrushed Face Up to your liking.

Sealed with Mr. Super Clear Flat

Lips sealed with Tamiya Gloss or Liquidtex gloss

Basic Eyelashes Provided and Applied (unless you have your own lashes I will apply them)

Final Portraits of your doll when it is finished.


~I will only be doing face ups ONLY, no body blushing, no modding or tattooing, I only do this on custom dolls. You will be able to choose your color scheme and style.

~I only will work on un-modded heads (sanding may be ok if the job is done really well)

~If you want a very specific look (such as how many eyelash strokes there should be or symmetrical brows) or a very specific character in mind, then I am not the face up artist for you. Sorry, my work is not perfectly symmetrical nor would I want it to be. Also I will not copy a face up done by another artist, nor will I copy a previous face up done by myself. If there is a previous face up done by me you really like, we can talk.

~I do not have a "waiting list", I want to be inspired when I paint your doll, so I take on commissions randomly.

~Heads should arrive clean. If you prefer me to clean the head for you, there will be an additional charge of up to $15.00 depending on how much work is involved.

~I do not do partial face ups ie: brows only.

~If after the face up has been completed, you want more than one thing changed or added, an additional fee will be charged. The fee will be determined by how much work is required.

~Payment is not required until after I have completed your doll's face up and you approve it, then I will invoice you via paypal.

If you have any questions please email me: cherylaustin@sbcglobal.net

My decisions are not to hurt or offend anyone, I just want to enjoy what I do and I also want to customer to enjoy what they get :)


About Mailing: Please let me know if you DO NOT want insurance as I will have you send me an email stating that you take full responsibility if they get lost or damaged as I will not. Also please make sure when you send the head that they are in a nice firm box that is not damaged as I will not take responsibility for that either.

Again, if you have any questions ask here or please feel free to email me: cherylaustin@sbcglobal.netAlso just out of common courtesy it would be nice if you can drop me a qiuck email letting me know you received the head once I mailed it back to you *___*

I see now. Thank you very much for the info! Sorry if my email was a bother to you.

Aug. 17th, 2009 03:01 am (UTC)
Oh no, please do not think that ^_^ there are just so many emails I get and I don't want to keep anyone hanging so I figure this may be the best method ^_^

Sounds reasonable, as always.

Are you amiable to painting a normal-skinned Bambicrony Elf?
Aug. 17th, 2009 03:09 am (UTC)
Bambicrony's are fine! I used to have one!
Aug. 17th, 2009 04:31 am (UTC)
Great! If I get tired of my big fail first faceups I'm torturing my new girl with (I really need to do this, though - work on my own doll), I'll go for a lottery slot so you can make her knock-me-off-my-feet stunning.
Aug. 17th, 2009 03:22 am (UTC)
What if I WANT to fill out your form? You can't STOP MEEEeee! ::fills out form multiple times::

Aug. 17th, 2009 09:59 am (UTC)

Aug. 17th, 2009 10:53 am (UTC)
Love the idea of the lotto system. I've been eagerly waiting for your slots to open up again.
Aug. 20th, 2009 06:00 pm (UTC)
Yay! I shall enter. I just hope I got the timezone conversion right, so I don't send it too early ^^. Just one question: When we enter, do we need to pick a number? Or do you randomly attach a number to each applicant's name?
Aug. 20th, 2009 06:05 pm (UTC)
Email me and I will give you a number ^_^
Aug. 24th, 2009 10:42 am (UTC)

I was wondering if you are actually taking commissions via lottery in February? Or if you're still taking a break and we should watch your website/Etsy for more info. Thanks! :D
Jan. 31st, 2010 05:25 am (UTC)
I am currently not taking any commissions. For updates it's best to check my LJ or my site:


If and when I do take them I will post it both sites ^_^
Feb. 6th, 2011 01:38 pm (UTC)
Good afternoon. I admire your work. I looked through your entire log, but did not find this doll here. I would like to know her name. Sorry if badly written message. I just do not speak English)
Apr. 7th, 2011 06:29 am (UTC)
Really can't wait till you're able to take up commissions again. I'd love for you to work on my Soom Ender or Iplehouse Arvid someday. Will cross fingers and toes!
Apr. 29th, 2011 04:20 pm (UTC)
Hello, do you have your Avrid now?
May. 14th, 2011 05:09 am (UTC)
I'm really a fan of your works...I would really love to commission you for my Crobidoll Ys or my SSDF Flood...I'll definitely wait until you open some slots again! ^0^
