How to Commission an ArtistI've been commissioning artists for a little over two years now, starting with site money on GaiaOnline and moving to dA from there. One thing that's hard for me to ignore is the number of artists who are concerned about being scammed, either because they've gone through that experience before or because the stories and warnings of it happening all the time proliferate. Commissioners have their own concerns about being scammed by artists. The simple fact of the matter is that it happens.

When you use my stuff:
Please link back to the original, or provide the web address if you are posting to a site that does not allow linking.
Please respect my characters, stories, research, and anything else you find here, and do not claim them as your own.
When you make art for me:
If I use it publicly, you will be credited and probably linked to. If I use it privately--as a reference for someone else to draw from, for example--you may not be credited... but the next artist I'm commissioning could probably care less about who drew the refs, and if they do care, they'll ask me.
If I want to post it somewhere where it might be misunderstood as my own work, I will talk to you about it first and get explicit permission.
If I want to proportionally re-size it or turn it into a thumbnail (that links back to the full-sized image), I will not ask you. If I want to crop it or add text, I will ask you first, because I can never remember who has what rules about their art.
I consider stretching an image out of proportion to be a form of libel, and I will never do that.
I do not resell, and I will tell you in advance if the art is a gift for someone else.
If you have any questions, feel free to Note/IM/PM/MM/email me.
If I were a food, I think I would be jello.
I'm silly and colorful and believe in transparency, but not TOO much transparency,
and there are definitely others who come from the same mold-- and I love them all.
I can't really hold much weight,
and I wobble a lot, and I'll trip over myself and bump into things when I move across an uneven surface,
and I'll crack if you handle me too roughly,
and oh, I don't really handle warm temperatures too well (though freezing is fine).
But if you are thoughtful with me,
and set me down on a nice, flat plate,
I will hold myself together and stand upright with a bizarre pride,
happy to surprise you and make you laugh.
