I'm kinda lax with my commission related paperwork. Which I suppose is why I've been ripped off a few times?

New Artbook this summer (4 Days Later?)
New icon stuff coming pretty soon (this weekend?)

Ha- I feel your pain man. A couple months ago I was working on something, I had a contract (of sorts) and they still just vanished midway through the project. I established a kill fee but i've yet to get even that.

This art game is tough.

Ohh new icons can't wait :D BTW can you recommend a Erykah album? I heard a couple of her tracks and I like her style.

'New Amerykah, Pt. 1' and 'Baduizm' are my favorites.

Here's a pdf of a contract I think looks pretty interesting. You could modify it to fit your needs I'd wager.

I don't make 'enough' to warrant such a contract (biggest commission was $75), but in the future that is something I'd totally want.

I agree with Mykola, I get money up front for anything less than 250 or so.. it's usually the small-timers that try to rip you off. And when I do have a contract I always include a kill fee.. =p

a kill fee?

It's for if the client cancels the project when it's half done. some people try to do that so they don't have to pay but they use your sketches anyway. Kill fees ensure that they pay a percentage of the final price.

Who needs contracts.

Just demand a 100% down payment before starting any work.

Your skill level MORE THAN allows for that.

I usually ask for 50% down. But it's still a good idea to get contracts, if only to avoid confusion.

true. however, if you keep archive of your emails and IMs, shouldn't be too hard to track back to the original briefs/requests and such, in case you have some disputes later, as in "wait.. I asked for that" -"nuh uh, you asked for THIS" *show them the original email with brief*.

50% down is good, but with your skills and track record I think it's fair to ask for 100% down.

unfortunately, there's still trouble with verifying non-physical evidence as..evidence. Other than the CSI-ish mad skills, it's really hard to prove that a certain e-mail, or an IM log hasn't been altered.. I agree that his skill and talent should ask for no less than 100% down, and the chances that he could potentially rip'n'run without doing any work is about 0%, explain that to the client.. I recommend a peak level of 75% with "low" prices, 50% with higher pricetags. Getting someone to spit out let's say a 1000 bucks for a promise is not so easy.
