▾ABOUT▾

Hello!

My name is Choco and I'm a 22 year old graphic designer and illustrator based in Austria. I'm currently studying animation/game art.

I love sushi, spicy food and taking long walks in the rain. Frogs are some of my favourite animals and I even have a collection of frog related items, that doesn't seem to stop growing...

What does the name Chocoreetu mean?
▾▾▾

I love chocolate that's where the Choco part comes from. The reetu part was actually name generated.

I have also been made aware that my name sounds like the japanese version of chocolate which is a funny coincidence.

How long have you been drawing?
▾▾▾

I switched to an art school in September 2014 and started actively practicing digital art shortly after. However, I have been doodling and drawing for my whole life.

Where did you go to school?
▾▾▾

I went to a HTL (Higher Technical Education Institute or Technical College) for construction and communication design, where I graduated in the print and digital media department.

Afterwards I went to university for law but switched majors to complete my bachelor's in game art and 3D animation at the SAE Institute.

Can I commission you for a Tattoo?
▾▾▾

Thank you so much for wanting to have my art on your body! As much as I love the idea, I don't have much experience with Tattoo designing, so I will leave these to Tattoo artists. Sorry!

If you'd like to use an already existing illustration for a tattoo however, then I ask the following of you:

▾▾▾

If it's a commissioned piece you want tattooed, then please contact the commissioner first and get their consent.
Please give credit and tag me in any social media posts (including posts by the shop/tattoo artist).
Please avoid making any major changes to the design.
Consider supporting me by donating to my ko-fi

What are your refund/cancellation policies?
▾▾▾

REFUND:
I normally don't do any refunds, with certain exceptions. So think carefully if you want/can afford a commission right now. I can always put you on the waiting list!


CANCELLATION:
If you cancel a commission BEFORE I started working on it, you will be refunded.
If you cancel a commission DURING or AFTER the work, then you will not be refunded.

▾▾▾

[Please note: You are paying for the hours I spent on it. Not only the work itself. Therefore refunds after I started working on your piece are impossible.]


CERTAIN EXCEPTION:
If you commissioned me, but happen to have money trouble (important medicine, accident, etc) then dm me as soon as possible, and we can work something out.
If you still want the work, then tell me, so I save the work and don't reuse it for personal work or other commissions until you can pay me.

If something happens on my side and I will not be able to finish your commission, then I'll also refund you.


I reserve the right to issue a refund and cancel a commission due to poor communication and/or rude or inappropriate behavior.

▾TERMS OF SERVICE▾

Thank you for your interest in commissioning me!

Please read through my terms carefully and only proceed if you agree to them.
For any concerns or questions contact me.

Please note: These are the terms for personal commissions only.

▾▾▾

TERMS OF SERVICE

▾▾▾

Displayed prices can change according to the complexity, difficulty, size and medium of each individual piece. The prices listed are only a guide/the starting price.

In the event that I can't accept new work, the client will be given the option of being placed on a waiting list, to be contacted when commissions are available again. The client does not need to pay to be placed on the waiting list. Being on the waiting list only constitutes a promise for me to contact them when I'm available for work again. It is the responsibility of the client to give correct and up to date contact information to me.

Clear visual references and/or description of a commission idea must be provided by the Client.

The Client must discuss any deadline expectations the Client has with me before payment.

No refunds after I begin working.

I will not discuss a commission with a client via public forum. Communications about commissions between Client and me can be made through e-mail or DMs.

Artist's Rights

▾▾▾

I reserve the right to decline any work for any reason.

I reserve the right to use/publish and/or livestream and record the commissioned artwork unless discussed otherwise.

I retain the right to display all commissioned work on any personal website, gallery, blog, or journal. If the commissioned work is a time-sensitive gift I may delay public showcase at the request of the Client.

I retain copyright to the commissioned artwork, unless discussed otherwise.

I reserve the right to turn down work with deadlines I can not reasonably accommodate.

I reserve the right to issue a refund and cancel a commission due to poor communication and/or rude or inappropriate behavior.

I may recycle sketches and preparatory works that were rejected by the Commissioner for other commissions or personal works.

Client's Use and Understanding

▾▾▾

The client does not own the right to reproduce the artwork for any profit whatsoever.

The client agrees this is strictly for personal use. The client owns the right to use the commissioned artwork as they like (they may resize or crop the artwork to create icons, wallpapers, or other graphics to be used in non-commercial digital format, but the Client cannot alter the artwork itself), as long as proper credit is given to me, the artist.

The client agrees that I retain copyright of the commissioned work unless discussed otherwise.

Payment and Process

▾▾▾

Payments will be made with Paypal in EUR (€).

Payments will be made up front before work on the commission begins. Orders over 100€ may be split up.

Please don't send payment before we came to an agreement on what exactly the work shall entail. I can only give exact prices after our discussion.

Artwork Adjustments, Corrections and Previews

▾▾▾

Clients will have the opportunity to direct alterations of their commissions at multiple key stages. Changes can be made while the work(s) is/are in the sketching phase(s). If the client is not satisfied with something tell me in the sketching phase! Huge alterations cannot be made after the sketching phase and no complete changes to the pose after the pose is approved unless the Client wishes to pay extra fees.

There will also be a chance for input during the coloring stage, to insure the colors are accurate.

If not discussed, the client will not receive any previews.

Important Notice

▾▾▾

I will not handle depiction of sexually explicit (nsfw) materials, religious, controversial and hateful images. Artistic nudity, violence, gore, and humorously offensive work will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

The Client must read, understand and agree to all the terms above before entering into an agreement with me, the artist. By sending payment, it is of my understanding that you, the Client agree to the above terms.

If the client fails to follow any of the above terms, I (the artist) reserve the right to terminate or cancel current projects and refuse any or all future work.
