Tutorial Tuesday: Commissioning Do and Don'tSo I'm back at it! The incredible amount of re-blogs and likes I've received the last few weeks on my tutorials have been overwhelming so I've returned with new tutorials!
I have a list here of at least a dozen different things I want to teach all of you, (and I'm sure that list is going to grow.) But I thought today we'll ease into it with some of the dos and don'ts when getting a private commission from your favorite artist.
Now I should start off by saying that these are based off my own experiences. Every artist is different and they have policies, preferences, and procedures they prefer. So be sure to ask them how they do things so that everything goes smoothly. In my experience though, following these guidelines will significantly increase the chances that the artwork you commission will come out amazing. So here we go!
DO: Tell the artist what you want.
This is simple but the most important.
