Terms & Conditions

 
 

"Do NOT try to commission me through my streams. It disrupts the flow of the stream and, frankly, is rude. This is stated in my Twitch rules and I am saying this here. I will not work on commissions unless I have agreed to them through the emails and request forms. This process allows me to keep my work flow fluid and my Streams enjoyable.
Thank you for understanding." - Ray
