Hi everyone! Happy to announce that All Commissions are open! OPEN sign  Here are some samples from previous clients!


Gemsona Commissions are not restricted to only Gem Characters! I can do Steven Universe OCs as well :3

Please note

Gemsona Commissions are for fully developed characters only! If you haven’t come up with a weapon design yet, it’s totally optional.

However, if you want me to [help] come up with the character design of your gemsona, please refer to my main commission journal. We’ll discuss more details via email.

Send requests by Email:
with the heading "Gemsona Commission" 

Include the following:
Your DA or Tumblr username (so I can contact you and give proper credit when finished.)
indicate: "Full body" or "Half body"
Please send complete references of your gemsona as an attachment or link in your email.

ALL final payments will include the minor PayPal fee, example: 
Order: [$8+ (paypal fee: $0.55 )= $8.55 (final total amount)]

Feel free to use the PayPal fee Calculator to confirm your total payment.

*One-shots Stories are typically between, but not limited to: 4-8 pages maximum. If your story exceeds the maximum, don't worry about it. The Page Rate Does Not Change.

    You must prepare a COMPLETED (Fully rendered and Colored) Reference Sheets of all characters with your Scripted/Story. (They can be in Story format or bullet point, just make sure that they are chronologically clear [Beginning, Middle, and End]. If you are struggling to keep your story within 4-8 pages, I'm more than happy to help you work it out. No worries.)

:star::new::star: Animation Commissions :star::new::star:

  Recently, I've gotten a request for doing small animations. So I'm making them available in my commission listings. Please provide references of what kind of animation you are looking for, as well as character references.

Turn-Around Time (a.k.a How long will it take?) :star:Updated

For Illustration Commissions:
  • Unless there is a given deadline, I try to complete within 3-4 weeks maximum. For any reason, there should be any delay or a needed extension; I will contact you immediately AND publicly announce it on my Status Update.
  • Last-Minute Request Fee is an additional $50 USD on top of the Commission's Total Amount. 

For Animation Commissions: :star::new::star:
  • Each Animation project will vary and strictly a work-by-the-hour basis. There is no set Turn-Around Time for Animation Commissions. However, I intend to work as quickly as possible for simple gif animations.

Payment and Procedures

Paypal Stamp 2013 by Roderic-Rodriguez
  • Once we confirmed the total amount:
    • For larger payments: I prefer half of the payment up front and the other half after completing your commission.
    • For smaller payments ($50 below): send your payment upfront. 
  • I will include Paypal fees in the final payment amount. (Feel free to use the Paypal Fee Calculator to determine your total payment.)
  • For any reason you need to cancel your request before I start any sketches, you will be fully refunded.
I Reserve the Right to:
  • Refuse service to anyone.
  • During the sketch process, feel free to edit as needed. If you are still not pleased with the end product (hopefully, this won't be the case.) I will refund half of the first payment as compensation for labor.
If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to note me or email me at

From what I hear it's fake either it was planned to be in the game but was removed or DJ Kavinsky said it would be in the game to promote his new album at the time
