Suggester's words: Commission Guide by =DarlingMionette is a great guide for any artist here on dA who is wanting to start offering commissions or who just wants to reexamine their current commission method. This guide covers everything from work ethics, payments to advertising. A true gem of a guide every artist should have stored away in their arsenal.

Thanks for putting this together! This will help me a lot when I get things ready to try myself out doing commissions! :D I still need to do some more practice drawings before I would feel ready. 

Be The Best You

This is very helpful! But i'm stuck on one thing...If you want people to pay you in points, then do they pay you after or before? And do the points just come to you? I'm so confused XD

This is very helpful for my future plan :) Thank you !
But I just have one question. What will happen to our artworks after someone buy them ? Do they own them, or do we have to make prints and ship to their place ?
