Commission Information

Bullet; Red Requests: Currently closed, generally open ONLY for friends or for very special occasions announced via journal
Bookdiva Terms of Service Bookdiva 
I have the right to close commissions at any time and refuse any commission for any reason (i.e. lack of time, motivation, broken equipment, lack of skill at that particular subject, etc.).I expect payment in full before starting your commission.I accept PayPal in USD

Some other useful bits of writing for commissioners/artists:
'Real Currency' vs 'Digital Currency'
Needed to share this journal because I'm so bored of seeing base and adoptable-makers saying "NO SELLING THIS FOR MONEY/REAL CURRENCY! But points are okay." Like... if you had to buy them and you're using them to barter goods then they're a currency and they have value in USD or whatever national currency you used to purchase them (and yeah, the "value" is always off - I assume to keep things simple but it's still incorrect). Why do you think artists always ask you to use the commission widgets instead of the Give Points or Donate button, lol?
I always feel like selling adoptables on bases with that rule for cryptocurrency, lmao, because it's essentially the same idea (not really, one is complex blockchain tech, the other is more like arcade coins, but same theory). No, you can't hand somebody a bitcoin in a store, it's a digital currency (which is what they label dA points as a lot of the time).
How to Run a Legitimate Freelance BusinessLike, say, taking commissions or hosting YCHs! Adoptables and F2U/P2U Lineart bases will get a section at the bottom because I think they're a slightly different animal.
So lately I've been getting frustrated by some people on dA. They have immense artistic talent Painter , but they don't seem to know exactly how to conduct business professionally, which is essential in freelance work (I'm a freelancer, among other things, so I'm not talking out of my ass). A conversation between Starquilled and I prompted me to make this little tip guide for people who have those amazing art skills but aren't quite sure how to go about spending them. I hope this is some use to someone out there, and feel free to share this around. ShoutBox 
First off, before you start taking commissions, you should write up a Terms of Service, which is basically a contract
