Please know that I am a person, not just a content creator.

For detailed (legal) stuff, check my Terms of Service.

Interacting with my Personas and Characters

Self-inserts/headcanons with my OCs and universes are 100% ok.Ex.: "Oh they're my OC's friend/parent/sibling/etc.",
"Oh they're secretly a wizard", "My oc/sona exists in this universe",
or "Omg they're trans"
, those are always cool with me :)
Regarding the above, do not racebend or whitewash my OCs that are BIPOC
(Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color).
Shipping with my OCs is ok, so long as it follows my boundaries. Content with gore/blood/violence and drug references are okay,
just add a content warning, please!
[For DID/OSDD Systems] I won't care if my OCs become a fictive, that's out
of anyone's control and I don't mind it. :)
If you're unsure if I'd be okay with something, please directly ask me. I don't mind people "simping" over my OCs or sona, but do not actually
hit on me, the artist, no matter what I am doing or what I draw my sona doing.


Interacting with Me &
My Boundaries


Generally Interacting with Me and other Warnings

My accounts such as Instagram, Tiktok, and Tumblr are all 18+.
My content contains a lot of heavy and gory
subject matter unsuitable for anyone under 18.
I am pretty forgetful, so I may forget to respond. It's nothing personal!
Gentle pokes are fine, but please do not spam me.
If you make me uncomfortable repeatedly (including others), I will block you,
especially if you're still hurting people after being warned.
Following back =/= immediate friends, I'm skittish lol I use Tone Indicators, tones don't translate well for me as a neurodivergent person!
If I say / word something weird, lemme know, please!
Do not trauma dump to me / my server unsolicited. I'm not
equipped to handle that without warning.
Do not complain about my public NSFW accounts.
They are labeled as such and you can choose not to look at it.
I don't mind people "simping" over my OCs or sona, but do not actually
hit on me, the artist, no matter what I am doing or what I draw my sona doing.
Please do not speculate about my IRL life and respect my privacy.


ABOUT ME

Eden , AKA. Kismet, "King Kismet"

Kiing Kiismet's commonly used profile picture of their split-colored black and blue themed character. They have curly blue hair over their right eye which is an "X," a black mask with blue teeth drawn over it, red and black earrings with white wording and

My name's Kismet. I'm a black and trans masculine 24-year-old artist and developer in Maryland, USA!
My pronouns are he/it/they + neopronouns, and I go by other nicknames as well. I'm also
neurodivergent and disabled, fighting Multiple Sclerosis since 2018!
I've been creating art and animations for a couple of years and am a recent computer science
graduate. All my life I've been interested in artwork, animation, writing stories, and designing interesting characters of the
fantasy genre for fun as well. I hope to use my newfound knowledge in development to combine these stories
into games and other media that I hope to publish in the future!
In these projects, my goal is to bring more diversity to the table in animation and gaming,
incorporating my intersecting identities of being black, queer, disabled, and neurodivergent in storylines to allow others to feel
seen, and take different approaches to the fantasy and adventure genres in entertainment.
While that's in the works, I'm still doing my little doodles and posting them on the internet,
reminding myself to have fun as well! :)

    ✦TERMS OF SERVICE AND CONDITIONS /w tl;dr✦

    "You" and "your" pertains to you, the commissioner, trader, or requester, and "I", "my", and "me" pertains to KIING KIISMET, and “content” or "works" pertain to any intellectual property produced by me (including but not limited to audio, videos, animations, illustrations, icons, logos, etc.). By buying works from KIING KIISMET, you automatically adhere to my Terms of Service. When ordering things from me, please come prepared with references or collages of references with descriptions so I know exactly what you want, please.PAYMENTWhen purchasing from me, it’s expected that you pay upfront. Of course, if you cannot, that is fine, but HD images will not be released to you and will be heavily watermarked (if at all released to you) until payment is fulfilled to avoid scamming. If you cannot pay in full, then a payment plan can be arranged where 50% of the payment is given to me so I can at least start on the commission.REFUNDS, REVISIONS, AND COMPLEXITY FEESTo file a refund, it must be done within the time the sketch is being drawn. As soon as it’s on the lining stage, refunds will not be accepted UNLESS I express that I cannot complete the commission. In addition to that, you cannot use any of the sketches or linework once the refund is processed; the process images will be promptly deleted and you are not allowed to use the artwork despite it being your character.For revisions, I can revise as many times needed as long as it’s possible, and it depends on where it is in the stage. If revisions need to be made after the work was completed, you must tell me within 7 days of completion.For major design revisions in a current commission (major change of pose, character design, or multiple variant changes), I may charge a revision fee of $10-$15. This fee would be prompted if and only if a major change is requested during the lining stage. Each instance will be charged ONLY, not charging per change. Revisions of 100% of the image are not covered under this, you must order a new piece if you want a do-over.For complexity fees, this applies if the character that I am drawing has, but is not limited to over 4 types of markings, more than 3 extra appendages (appendages count as arms, legs, wings, eyes, etc.), multiple colors on base design (on body), and/or complex clothing and accessories. Complexity will be determined by me only.POSTING MY WORK ELSEWHEREYou are allowed to use the work however you please for profile pictures, social media, banners, etc. as long as it’s not for monetary gain unless you arrange to get explicit permission from me.
