An Art Assignment is required when both sides agree on all the terms. This is a legal documentation to protect the interests of both sides. 20% of deposit is required to cover the artistís starting expenses when contract is signed. An Art project normally takes 45~60 days to be completed depends on the artist schedule and complexity of the art project. All fees must be paid in full before the delivery of the finished painting.

When artist and you reach an agreement on the initial design and terms, he needs space of self-imagination to create the painting. Remember, too many or too detailed requirements may not help the artists. The artist will be the person who finalizes the project and controls the overall effects based on his professional view.
