Tips For Commission ArtistsHello! I thought of making this small guide, based from my personal experience, to give tips to artists, mostly beginners, to be more successful at selling commissions, since seeing from my previous journal many had difficulty with it. So here are some tips to help boosting your sales.Tips For Commission Artists by Kawiku
Have your commission info somewhere visible
Possibly, people won't even know you are taking commissions or if they are open if you don't put your commission info somewhere they can see. You can do this in a journal, that I mostly recommend, since it will be showing into your watcher's inboxes and most of your watchers probably rarely visit your profile page. You could still also use the commission widget, or donation poll to write your info. You can also link to your commission info in your signature or the artist's comment of new drawings you upload.
Keep it simple
Don't add too many unnecessary rules or in

Paypal. Entire payment must be received before entire piece will be released. I'll request half to begin with, and then after you've approved a thumbnail, I'll ask for the second half, and then I'll send you the entire piece.
You will receive a jpeg, PSD or TIFF of the image to you. (If is watercolour I´ll do the possible to send you the original, it depends which country I have to send the illustration)
My name may not be removed from the piece.
If you'd like to use the image for a website, that's fine as long as I'm credited somewhere. If you'd rather I didn't, then say so and I won't.
The time depends on how much work I have or how complex the drawing. I usually takes me 4 days in digital, and a week and half in watercolor.
