DW's Guide on Art Commissions
Dwwrider’s Guide on Art Commissions on deviantART (last revised June 2016)
This guide is based off of my personal experiences of commissioning artists on deviantART.  I hope future art commissioners or artists who take commissions find this information useful.  I’ll try to update this guide once a year and look at the title to see when the last update was.
All the information in this guide is a recommendation and results will vary.
Table of Contents:
Phase 1: Determine the Subject/Topic of the Commission
Phase 2: Search for an Artist on deviantART and Other Websites
Phase 3: Learn about the Artist’s Commission Availability, Rules, Rates, etc
Phase 4: Communicating with the Artist
Phase 5: Developing a Commission Write Up/Description with References
Phase 6: Payment
Phase 7: Give Feedback to the Artist
Phase 8: What to Do with a Completed Commission
Additional Tips & Pointers

:iconahoyplz: Ahoy there! I have been thinking of opening commissions for a while. Just never got around to doing it... as usual!

I am actually kind of nervous about this since I have never really done any transactions online before. To keep things as simple as possible, the commissions will be kept strictly through Paypal! Please note me with the subject "Commissions" and we can discuss your request there. I prefer payment upfront; my email for commission related stuff is All messages will be replied to ASAP!

Even still, I am learning my way around Paypal. If you are requesting and have experience with Paypal / how commissions usually work and willing to help me a little now and then, you have no idea how much I'd appreciate that! :love:

Important! I will do requests for objects, animals, characters, OCs, etc. However, if you want something specific done, supplying some sort of reference would be helpful.

Regarding avatars specifically, details such as: whether you want the entire body or just the head if it is a character, whether you want text on it, if you have a color palette in mind etc would also be helpful. In other words, please be specific!

The prices have been reworked quite a few times to make sure everything works for you and me alike. :) Please also note that the time frames are a little extended because I have some things going on in late July / early August that may pull me away for a little while. Just trying to be as honest as possible! I really don't want anyone to be disappointed because of my false promises.

Time Frame: 2 weeks maximum

*Simple animations are ones that involve sparkles, blinking eyes, floating things, etc - slight edits from frame to frame that are easier to do

**Complex animations are ones that involve more dynamic movements such as moving limbs, spinning figures, etc - more time consuming edits that require the complete redrawing of the part from frame to frame

Plant Form by victor-c , Plant Form - Colored by victor-c

Time Frame: 3 weeks maximum

These will be drawn on 8.5 x 11 paper and scanned. I will send you the original large file.


As mentioned above, I prefer payment upfront.

I reserve the right to decline a request if I don't feel I'm able to do it, or if the requester is being uncooperative in any way.

No lewd or inappropriate subject matter, of course!

The commission is free for you to use however you want (with exception to commercial purposes), although I would appreciate credit. You cannot claim the work as your own creation or redistribute it.


I seem to always bite off more than I can chew... it doesn't help that I am a slow worker either. I will start off easier with 5 SLOTS OPEN. I must receive payment first before a slot can be reserved for you! All other requests discussed during this time will be given priority when I open the next set of slots.
