1. — ( sticky! ) commissions and requests



hi! thanks for dropping by. currently I offer:
  • requests for up to 15 icons for free
  • commissions between 30 - 100 icons


15 icons is free, 30 and over is a commission.

— please do not link me galleries. please link me specific high quality screencaps you like. I prefer caps to be given to me in a zip for ease of downloading.

right now, I cannot make my own screencaps.

— for requests, please give me a maximum of 20 caps. I like to give some extras.

— tbh I do not care if I do not know the canon you're after. I will icon live action (tv and movies), comics, animation, and video games. I'm not a fan of photoshoots and will not icon fanart. as for me being unfamiliar with characters, I'm not using the icons at the end of the day, so I'm happy to make them even if I'm canon blind.

I also don't care for spoilers; I go on tumblr and twitter and spoil myself on purpose, so please don't think you're going to spoil me for something. that's on me to communicate to you.

— if you haven't heard a confirmation I received your request after 10 days, drop me another comment or pa edit.

turnaround time is at least one weekend. I work full-time, so I have limited availability during weekdays. because of this, requests will be shuffled in with the commissions.

— please do not send me points until I've confirmed it is done! I'm not comfortable accepting points until I know I have been able to meet your request. once I've confirmed, feel free to send half the points first, obtain your icons, and the rest after, or all of them in full. I'm not comfortable taking paypal, but if you prefer it, maybe we can work something out. (I ask for DW points because that's where it goes, anyway, and it is my preferred method.)

— please credit peaked or shithouse. the icons commissioned will not be made available for public use.


I will make icons to trade for dreamwidth points, as well as gather screencaps and make my own caps if absolutely necessary. bigger commissions take a lot more time than a quick 15-20 icon request. what I consider a commission:
  • 30 or more icons.
  • please note any screencap gathering costs an additional number of points.

the pricing is as follows:
    1 point per icon (minus 15 as the first 15 are free), so it ends up as, for example:
      — 100 icons for 85 dreamwidth points.
      — 250 icons for 235 dreamwidth points.

    if you cannot provide screencaps please be aware that in this instance the 15 free icons is not included in the commission and the 15 points I deduct are added.
    • for a commission under 100, if I have to gather the screencaps myself, this will be an additional 15 points.
    • for a commission over 100, if I have to gather the caps myself, this will be an additional 30 points.
    • if I have to make the screencaps, for both types of commissions, this will be an additional 60 points. * for finding a download that's workable/high quality, capping, getting fussy with the capping to ensure you get good angles and variation, and then sorting through said capping.


    I will provide samples of how the icons will turn out if you request it. this is so you can see how the caps will turn out as icons. if you find you don't like them, then I won't be offended if you pull your commission. with requests for samples, I'll provide 5 - 15 icons of various caps provided.

    I will do commissions that are between 30 - 100 icons. anything between 100 - 250 will need to be negotiated because I do not have as much free time as I once did and I want to manage expectations as best as I can. c:

    IMPORTANT NOTE turnaround expectation: 100 icons = 1 week. 250 = 1-2 weeks. I work five days a week, so this is an estimation of my time factoring in my availability outside of work hours. Thursdays are the best time to slot in a commission as I'll make time to complete it on the weekend.
