Commission tutorial by `alexds1 The suggester states, "This Commission tutorial is a very useful and informative resource that could help everyone considering offering commissions. It's laid out very well too, in typical dA comment style, and once you have read it from the top all the way down to the bottom, there's a couple of hidden jokes waiting for you as well.:D"

Commission tutorial



Yes it's true, new monthly tutorials are now available via my Patreon
>>>>> Get new tutorials and impress friends, children, strangers, etc with your charitable nature here <<<<<

Over the past three years I've done loads of successful commissions, and have commissioned others successfully as well. I have never had an issue with my transactions because I did my research before I started, and asked others who were doing commissions themselves how they were managing. However, not everyone has the time to go and note everyone (or, if you're getting noted, you may not have time to answer inquiries constantly)! So for your perusal and reference, here are some helpful tips to help you get started with taking commissions on DA.

This tutorial is more for people who offer commissions, but I have a few words for those who take them as well:

- Do your research. Make sure you're getting art from a reliable artist!
- Art costs money. Don't haggle down, its insulting. Don't forget, you're also getting free advertising when they post it to their gallery (for example, who here doesn't know Audley's Castor ;3 )
- Don't be afraid to pimp the artists who did good work for you! Here is my list!
