I've noticed that there are a lot of people out there who are unfamiliar with the commission process, and can often feel like they are stumbling over their words when contacting an artist. So, I decided to make a short guide detailing some of things I've noted over the years of working as a freelancer. If you are an artist, feel free to suggest additional details in the comment section below!
Preparing for a Commission
Money is Everything
Ensure that, before you contact an artist, you have enough money to purchase what you want. If you are operating on a tight budget and may end up spending that money on something- don’t contact the artist. It’s extremely frustrating to have a client backout, or ghost you completely. Backing out after only a few messages is extremely insulting to us, and leaves us with a sour impression of you. Remember- freelancers aren’t your neighborhood Walmart, every dollar
