Any artists want to go ahead and help me finished up a half finished piece that an artist abandoned? They've got pretty much everything sketched, and they got half of it (most of the really hard parts) colored, but after that WIP they just fell off. This is a finished piece by the artist, and they just left me hanging with mine halfway through. Would obviously pay, hence why I'm not in the color thread.

Out of curiosity, how much time do you usually spend on a sketch?

I aim for around an hour total, sometimes it's more if I need to experiment with the poses or the client wants revisions

Question.
What are "slots"?
>>
>>1103123
Sent one off your form recently, hope I did it decently enough.
>>
>>1103131
How many spaces they have for taking on commissions.

i.e. six slots means they can take six commissions
>>
>>1103131
Most people like myself treat slots like reservations, or waiting in a queue with limited capacity

>>1103132
No worries, got your submission!
>>
>>1103148
>>1103165
Why have a limited capacity though? Couldn't you just have an infinite queue system?
What's the benefit?
>>
>>1103178
Gives an indication of how long it'll be and also stops the artist from getting swamped.
>>
>>1103178
>>1103179 This
Having too many slots means you either aren't going to get to finish them all quickly, or you effectively have a giant waitlist, which may discourage potential customers
>>
>>1103200
But if you have enough clients that you have a big waiting list, what's the problem with discouraging further customers?
>>
>>1103228
If he has six slots open, then he doesn't have a big waiting list. Why does it matter so much to you buddy?
>>
>>1103228
Lots of artists like to do commissions in slots because there's an "end" if you know what I mean. You do 6 slots, then open six more when you're done.
It makes it feel less like a constant slog, you can control what kind of commissions you're getting too. Tango has got sketch slots atm, so obviously want to get some quick work done.

I never understood it before, but that makes a lot of sense. I feel really weird when I have endless commissions
it's even weirder when I'm on retainer (well not in the sense of getting paid) on an ongoing project, but because it's still in alpha none of it has to be done right away, and i'm even getting paid to sketch

>>1105533
It's fine. No one's going to find out unless they read your emails. And no one's going to leak your emails because then they'll never have another customer.
>>
>>1105533
...How would anyone ever know?

I can't imagine any of the artists here go around posting lists of their clients or anything like that. Especially if you ask them not to.
>>
>>1105533
People typically don't care.

Anyway, I wish more artists would specify if they drew furs and pones. I have a few friends with fur/pone OCs and I want to get them art. Maybe there's something in the /trash/ about that kind of art.
>>
>>1105533
I have a bunch of artwork that i was asked to either never say whom commissioned it and or simply not post it. So doing something like that for you would not be too much of a change for me.
>>1104193
>>
>>1105577
the only way anyone would know is if it was a distinctive OC
and even then it's like.. you don't have to post it online. you can just keep it to yourself. I have a few clients like that

The most you can really do is tie an ambiguous email name to your PayPal account.

If you're worried about it just tell the artist you'd like to remain anonymous.

How do you remain anonymous as the artist when receiving payment, by using a Paypal Business account instead of a Private one?

Sorry if my question is stupid...

>>1107607
Yes, using a business account lets you show your business' name instead of your personal name.

I wouldn't worry too much, though. Most artists around here can be discreet if asked to.

So I just noticed that a recent client of mine has uploaded my work on paheal.
This is fine (I was actually planning to upload it myself), but I forgot to sign the version I sent him so there's nothing linking it to me in case anyone who sees it goes "wow, I'd like to see more of this guy's stuff".
Is there anything I can do to link it to me, except upload a version with my signature?
>>
>>1108315
The way I see it you have two good options:
1. ask the commissioner to put in a request to paheal to replace the file with the one that has your signature (which you'll just put on imgur or something so they can access it online easily)
2. put your name in the tags and just trust that people will believe the tag was put there legitimately. They're rarely contested. Plus if you post your file somewhere else you can put it as the source (I think you don't have to be the uploader for that)
>>
>>1108315
Tag yourself as the artist. Post it somewhere else like tumblr or pixiv and then fill in the source section with the link to your page. Or simply comment on the image and say, "Hey, I did this piece, if you like it, check me out."
>>
>>1108325
>>1108329
That sounds good, thanks!
Regarding sources, I only uploaded one of the three variants I made on my tumblr. Would it be inappropriate to link the other variants to the same tumblr post?
>>
>>1106885
I know that furry is frowned upon outside of /trash/, but I'd like to see some anthro girls consensually getting dickings by monsters and such.
>>
>>1108341
nah, upload the variants instead. a lot of people like variants so it makes you look like a good commissioner
>>
>>1108356
I don't think many people frown on it outside of memery
I can totally draw that shit. i love monsters.
I've got a little furry shit on that furaffinity site, kairuhakubi on there. most of it's not online at all though, and I only use FA for commissionry. furries have deep pockets. so far sadly not a lot of bites
>>

Is there a way to post thumbnails on tumblr?

>>1108433
oh I thought you meant paheal
i dont know from tumblr
>>
>>1108435
No, the variants are already on paheal; I was wondering if I could put the source for all of them as the one variant I upload to my tumblr or if that's a faux pas.

Sweet, checking it out. Guessing tentacles generally count as a second character?

>>1108064
I was thinking a bit more hardcore than that. (The word hardcore no longer means anything.) Not to the point of guro though.
>>
>>1108558
>Guessing tentacles generally count as a second character?
Personally I consider tentacles as disembodied penises, and I don't charge for them. Other artists might disagree, though.
>>
>>1108443
Hmmmmm. nah I think that's fine.
>>
>>1108785
I would only charge a few extra dollars for tentacles, unless they had to have detailed octopus suckers along the bottom of each one
>>
>>1108785
>>1108881
It feels like an individual basis thing. One or two isn't more work than a floating dong and could easily be free, but a character all wrapped up in tendrils would be considerably more work.

Not unless you want like really complicated patterns and shit. Otherwise they are free. Same with floating dicks, only if you want an excessive number of them.
>>
>>1109098
honestly, most of the time I see stuff like "who enjoys drawing ____?" I go "uh, everyone, if you're paying" but I understand maybe they mean who has the PASSION for it that comes out in art..
if they have a specific character in mind, I definitely assume that's what they mean. Someone who really likes a character... aaand someone who will probably take the price down a bit because they enjoy drawing that character and can do it easily without a lot of preparation
>>
>>1109098
To be fair I wouldn't commission someone if they're unfamiliar with the subject at hand and is uncomfortable drawing it.
>>

>>
>>1109098
Characters tend to have personalities. Those character traits and mannerisms can and often do come through in the art. If someone is not familiar with the character a piece can feel shallow and unsatisfying.

Fun person to work with here, I can vouch for them being a friendly person to get a bit of work from, and PWYW sketches is a nice deal, I think!
>>
>>1109434
Wow, awesome that you were in this thread posting the whole time and just happened to be here as soon as they showed up to vouch for them within minutes of their arrival.

This completely impartial third party testimony is very moving.
>>
>>1109502
You're just now noticing this? Lots of these artists have been pulling the old near-immediate "thanks for this I highly recommend" trickeroo since early iterations of this thread.
>>
>>1108558
Well, i would not mind doing something like that. Here is my commission info.

>>1109434
I almost feel bad for you dude. This is just sad.
>>
>>1109098
I've had so many commissions where the artist just hasn't captured the look right.

And if I want a trap, I want an artist that understands the appeal of it.
>>
>>1109652
How much of a discount would make you consider it worthwhile to risk commissioning an artist who hasn't shown they know what they're doing with a specific character, or some slightly niche thing like traps?
Others feel free to chip in with their opinions.
>>
>>1109679
I wouldn't be looking for a discount.

Sometimes in the past, I've asked an artist if they wouldn't mind doing a 2 minute headsketch. I've had a few good commissions from that.

Sometimes even an artist I've commissioned before will just get it wrong so it's up to the commissioner to try and figure out who's a good fit for the particular image. I'm almost put off by the "draw anything" tag.
>>
>>1109686
So, putting something like "If you want something that's not represented in my gallery, I'll be happy to draw you a quick sketch to let you see if I get it" in my sheet would be a better idea?

Maybe but I'd be worried about people taking the piss out of it so it might be better just to get them to contact you if something's not covered in your gallery to discuss it first. Then it's up to you whether to provide a sketch or not.

Pic related. Trying to figure out the best artist to make some sexbotified Rick and Morty characters.

how profitable is doing porn commissions?
Can I quit my job and just do this?
>>
>>1109886
It's possible, but depending on your local cost of living, what you're willing to draw and your skill as an artist and businessperson, it could be really hard. Definitely don't expect to make a living off of it before you've spent a while doing it.
>>
>>1109907
I just want to make about $300 a month, that's how much my current salary is anyway
>>
>>1109502

>>1109510
>>1109554
>>1109859
It's reasonable for artists to namefag, but as a commissioner, I'd feel it's kind of unnecessary. I'm not the guy who just touted that artist, but I do almost always immediately make a post about my experience with an artist after I've finished a commission, and oftentimes, it's right near a post from the artist saying he's open again. Should I start namefagging if I'm a regular commissioner who's vocal about his experience with artists?
>>
>>1109886
Overall, i make somewhere between 300 to 500 per month, and that is including all of commissions i do including porn.

Now, i think i should mention two things.
1-I have to work my fucking ass off to do all of that work to make that amount of money and a lot of work just to find new commissions and new clients.
2-Some times ill make less then 200 and get very little work.

In other words, being a freelance artist is not all it is cracked up to be... Well, unless you are already extremely populor and can charge like 100+ for a sketch. And ya, i have seen that done before and people will throw their money at some artists, no matter how much they charge for their work.
>>
>>1109938
freelance sounds really risky, have you worked as an in house artist, how is it?

I really want to shift my career from a programmer to an artist
>>
>>1109924
That's definitely possible. In the two months I've been doing commissions, I've averaged a little over $150 per month, and I haven't even tried advertising outside of this thread yet.
>>1109782 is me, in case you're wondering what level of art that is.

But get your porn commissions business set up to take the slack before you quit your day job.
>>
>>1109925
I guess so. I just happened to have popped into the topic right when the artist had given me another mail message (time zone differences are a pain) and figured I'd taut them a bit. Done it a couple times already when I got a piece I'd like to share and a person I want to shill (usually santystuff around here). Didn't think things would end up blowing up like that after going to bed.

This was a draw request I did, what do you think? How would do in the porn commission business.
I also feel a little guilty going into this, adding to the competition. I'm not the competitive type and my mom, who is an accountant, said I would fail as a business man cause I always do things for free
>>

You would definitely fail as a businessman if you always do things for free. Listen to your mother, anon.
>>
>>1109993
Honestly, focus on improving first. Your art has way too many issues for it to the marketable

Study anatomy before trying to draw anything lewd
>>
>>1109993
You've got the gist of it, but you do need more practice. Do some figure drawing, analyze perspectives and anatomy, you'll get there yet.

>>1110004
To be fair, I see a lot of artists in this thread who don't necessarily understand anatomy at all.
>>
>>1109993
Like I said, I've only been doing this for a few months, so I'm hardly an expert, but your basic construction, perspective and anatomy feel kind of weak. Try getting into the habit of doing 30 minutes or more of studying (not just drawing from imagination; use reference!) every day.
How long did you spend on that piece?

>>1110004
>>1110012
I've been practicing everyday since November, I actually ended playing vidya last was the Overwatch Halloween event cause I really want to work as an artist. Being a programmer is numbing my brain
>>1110016

currently studying anatomy but because of the latest SU leaks I've been drawing fanart haven't really practiced lately
>>
>>1109957
Never done that before. What does that imply, being an in house artist?
>>
>>1110087
like you're employed as a regular employee for a studio or company
>>
>>1110043
Okay, pro tip; don't use a five-character drawing that you spent an hour on as a portfolio piece. That's twelve minutes per character.
It's very rare that people want quality that low. Something drawn like the study you posted could easily be sold if you spent a few more minutes cleaning it up, so try and spend that much effort on every character you draw whether it's commissions, requests or just fan art you draw for fun.
>>
>>1110095
yeah, I wouldn't expect that to sell, that's my only NSFW request I've drawn

It's just that I only get 2 hours of free time when I get home from work. I want to draw as fast as I can so I can do more draw requests. Draw requests are so fun for me I'd only sleep for 6 hours(this definitely contributes to the stress) cause I spent the night drawing.
>>
>>1110139
Well, in my experience you don't get good at being fast by trying to be as fast as possible, but by taking your time to do it properly so you eventually don't need to spend as much time to do it properly. It sucks, but you're gonna have to be patient with your draw requests if you want to make things that could eventually get people interested in commissioning you.
>>
>>1110093
HA! Never had anything close to that. Would not mind having it though.
>>
>>1110156
well, it was just a draw request though. cause in my mind when anons have a draw request they want it asap. but if someone was paying me I'd give my all and probably spend 3 days

>>1110163
if and when I quit my current job in-house would be the safer bet, freelance seems scary if you don't have clients

>>1109350
I enjoy doing furry shit,
http://www.furaffinity.net/user/shushup
>>1103637
>>
>>1110182
Yeah, but you gotta spend that time so prospective clients can see that you know how. Otherwise they'll see a portfolio full of rushed art and assume that's all you're capable of.

When you see a request you'd like to do, just tell the anon that it'll take a while. Post WIPs in the thread. I know /aco/'s drawthreads can run for several days at a time.
>>
>>1110193
never thought of it that way, but I wouldn't consider my draws as portfolio pieces but rather just doodles

What do you do when you get a first sketch of your pic and it's just nothing like you had imagined, in a bad way?

The artist didn't really get what you had in mind, or doesn't really know how to do the bodytype you asked for and stuff like this?

How do you salvage a pic without writing a wall of text about everything that's wrong?
>>
>>1110706
At a certain point the wall might be the best option beyond cutting your losses and saying they just aren't what you're looking for. Better than slowly picking at it email after email, or sucking it up and paying for something you don't want.
>>
>>1110706
It's best to be honest with them. don't be mean about it but just be clear that this isn't at all what you wanted, and ask if they're willing to start over.. if not, just cancel the whole thing. if so, apologize for not being clear enough(even if you were) and get more specific about what you do want.

I think he said something about going into service(military?). I might be completely wrong, but it's a shame if that is the case since I was hoping for him to add more to the animation I got from him whenever I get my hands on more money.
>>
>>1110846
Funny, I was going to ask this earlier, and came up with similar answers to love-bumble. I had a similar thing happen recently, though writing instead of art. It's interested to see how other people do it, the kind of style and prose and such they'll use.
>>
>>1111634
Not bad. Meant to ask you recently to gauge something since you've been pretty amiable about answering questions on what you do and price ranges and stuff, what would a naked animu girl holding a plushie version of the giant robot she pilots likely cost from ya?
>>
>>1111804
unless she's doing complex gymnastics whilst holding it, I'd say that'd be really cheap. Assuming she doesn't have a really elaborate hairstyle, and assuming this robot plush should be really simplified down, shit that one could easily be 16 bucks. Like, I WANT to say 18, because I don't like going below 18, but.. naked really takes the price down. and hell, you said holding, not even hugging, which is a more complex pose. Hell if the anime is something like Ebichu or Chi's Sweet Home I could take that down even further, since that's roughly equivalent to Adventure Time style and I used to do single-character nudes of those for 12 bucks

of course if you wanted said robot to NOT be simplified, I DO do robots. wish I got commissioned for robots. I wish they made complex-looking plushes of robots.
>>
>>1111817
oh and that's including color and shading and all that, because honestly that doesn't take enough time to be worth providing a discount for leaving out. Not for nudes anyway. Not unless it's painterly shading
>>
>>1111817
Sounds about like I expected, really. It was between that idea or the SD-style robots concept I mentioned several threads back if you remember those minor discussions, and much as I enjoy the idea of maybe making my own box-art one day, the allure of anime tits is always a strong pull.
>>
>>1111829
Ohhh yeah you wanted the lots and lots of robots. I have a vague memory of that, though I don't recall it being SD

I cannot recommend this guy enough.

As you can tell, he's friggin' talented. He works fast too, follows details well, and has expert advice (I learned a lot about drawing fundamentals).

The only stipulation is that the fee is always negotiated case by case. How much did I pay? Can't say exactly, but it was worth it.

>>1114165
As I said, case by case, it wouldn't be right for me to disclose what I paid. There's also the fact I paid for more art ontop of this (which I can't post due to.. reasons) so I couldn't say how much I paid specifically for this piece alone.

Another example of his work (in case you can't access pixiv).
>>
>>1114186
So why exactly can't say say how much you (were) charge(ed) for the pieces?

This is some 2/10 shilling here.
>>
>>1114189
I could see some artists asking people not to do that. I've considered it... but I figure, better to have them hear a price I gave and demand the same, than not contact me at all because they don't know what I charge.. Besides I can easily say "well that's not the EXACT same thing, I'll need to charge more" or "i kinda undercharged that guy, I could use another buck or two on that"

but aside from that he's giving a good explanation: he commissioned multiple things at once, so he can't itemize. not if it was commissioned as a group
>>
>>1114167
I don't get that at all. I imagine most people looking to buy have a budget in mind.

Depending on the quality you might be willing to go over that but with no idea what someone might charge AT ALL I'm not sure I'd bother messaging them just to be told "Yeah, that'll be $300" or something.
>>
>>1114227
Kinda in the same boat there. Definitely tempted and all, but the idea of lobbing a simple pin-up idea that way and being told it's potentially twice what I was hoping to pay would be disconcerting, to say the least. Though getting told up front would be better than the alternatives, and it would give you a ballpark estimate to go by later, at least.
>>
>>1114235
>>1114227
Same here
I like having at least an idea of the price at first or else I'm not even going to bother, what's the point of wasting both my time and the artist's time if he ends lobbing a three-digit price for a simple pinup?

It's either some really fucking bad shilling from >>1114126 or he's shy about some fucked up stuff he commissioned
>>

It shouldn't be the responsibility of the consumer to name the price of your product.

Oh, I aint shy, it's just restricted is all (and I ain't posting it on imgur now).

Also, >>1114193 has it right: I asked for multiple things and I can't break down how much a single pin up would be.

>>1114193
I'm not exactly sure why the artist asks quoting by inquiry only, but if it's to avoid having precedent of how much this or that will be, I'm for it.

Wuts the harm in asking? So he shoots you a $ way beyond your budget; big deal, no need to be discouraged. As >>1114270 sez, negotiate, and see what he'd be willing to pump out in X.00 range.

Now I gotta wonder why all this attention. Is it just because quote inquiry doesn't jive with commissioners, or that and the art is top-tier?
>>
>>1114275
>the art is top-tier
I can promise you that this isn't the issue.
>>
>>1114277
You drunk, go home.
>>
>>1114270
Or save everyone's time by drawing up a price guide. Even just saying "Prices from $X" is better than no price at all.

>>1114275
No harm in asking yeah. They come back and quote a price outside of my range then I just say "Sorry, that's more than I was looking to spend, thank you for your time" and move on.
But it's three steps more than it needs to be.

Scenario A:
Price guide!
Me: Well I can't afford that, time to move on with my life.

Scenario B:
No price guide!
Me: Hey artist, what would you charge for X?
Artist: $Y
Me: Sorry, I can't afford Y

Never really tried negotiating with people, doesn't sit right me with. Although I suppose there's a difference between "You want to charge X, I want to pay Y for the same thing" and "Okay, you want X, what could you do for me at Y?"
>>
>>1114274
I wasn't suggesting that, but if anything the ability to name your price is a freedom. and anyway no matter how we slice it, this is barter.
the main problem here is that it's done by email. In the old days when the only way to order a product was through the mail, you'd wanna give as much info as possible in your request, to keep the correspondence short. I got a commission weeks ago that I still haven't finished nor gotten money for because the guy takes almost 24 hours to reply, and always replies while I'm asleep.
point is, you can whine about how the artist isn't doing a good enoubh job making things easy for you by providing the information you want, or you can just contact them and receive it.
>>
>>1114285
yeah, Negotiation needs to be more than simple haggling. In this case it's a custom product, and the artist has the disadvantage of not knowing how difficult or time-consuming it will be until they begin (or how much refining you might need them to do). There's a reason most commission/patron based arts in the past have been massive projects, things that would sustain you for weeks or months from a single sale.
It's best to be flexible on both ends. More than once I've said "I could do that for X, as long as you don't care about a background, and if you can find me a pose to reference so I don't need to spend any time constructing it myself" and they're usually happy to. most of the time, time-is-money only applies to the artist.
>>
>>1114290
>point is, you can whine about how the artist isn't doing a good enoubh job making things easy for you by providing the information you want, or you can just contact another artist and get the work done

Yeah, exactly.
>>
>>1114296
exactly. They're not hurting anyone but themselves
>>
>>1114299
I have no idea how these poor anons would get by if they didn't spend their disposable income on nsfw commissions. Weep for the ones who decide to not commission this guy as they truly are the ones being hurt most by this outcome. Truly.
>>
Purely out of curiosity, does anyone do edits matching the original styles/colors of stuff, or is that actually harder than drawing things from scratch?
>>
>>1114313
If you're really an anon, stop it. You're honestly not helping the artist. You're making it look like he's shilling himself, and currently getting out of control.

If you're the artist, oh my god, you've got some issues, dude.
>>
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

This brow beating stops RIGHT NOW!
>>
>>1114285
>difference between...
Yes, exactly. Instead of having a price list tier levels of art, why not just see how far you $ can go.

I do see the point in a price list, but again, too much precedent makes for too much expectations, so why not just say how much you got and get something of said value, or vice-versa.

>>1114290
Personally, I don't mind exchanging through e-mail, even if it takes a whole week. After all, wuts the rush?

>>1114292
>disadvantage of not knowing how difficult or time-consuming it will be
Truth is this was exactly my case. I felt kinda bad in the end so I gave a bit of a gratuity. But, yeah, no matter wut, an exchange is gonna have to happen in terms of pricing somewhere, even with a price list.

>>1114299
>>1114313
Meh, makes for a truly niche service. Can you imagine (insert steak house chain here) with a drivethru? It's kinda wut the price list is.

>>1114324
I can assure you, I'm just his loyal and satisfied client. Hell does he care about 4chan (I'm actually his first and only hentai commish)

>>1114331

what? i clearly said the artists aren't hurting anyone but themselves.
>>
>>1114335
i would love drivethru steak
i mean if i had a car

i guess what i want is delivery steak
>>
>>1114323
It depends on the kind of edit you're looking for. If you just want, say, a bikini removed or something recolored, that's easy.

On the other hand, if you want to switch a floaty, frilly dress that makes up for one third of the picture for a naked version, that's going to be some serious editing that most people would rather draw from scratch.

That being said, money talks and I'm sure some artist *wink wink* might do it for ya. >>1104606 *wink*

>>1114335
>Personally, I don't mind exchanging through e-mail, even if it takes a whole week. After all, wuts the rush?
Bills don't wait for no one, bro.
>>
>>1114342
Well, I'm glad to see you aren't disillusioned into thinking steak is something so bleedin' fancy. For that reason, maybe my example doesn't prove so effective...

Point is often you don't see pro artists (the fancy restaurant) making price lists (the drivethru).

>>1114349
>Bills don't wait for no one
?.. I'm talking about negotiating price, in which you 'wud' have some $ put aside.
>>
>>1114359
I'm telling you what the rush would be as an artist. What I'm saying is that I prefer it when I can settle on the work details, price and a sign-off sketch without wasting too much time figuring things out through email.
>>
>>1114359
I don't know if that's really a fair comparison. even fancy restaurants have prices on the menus.
I almost always see price lists for everyone doing commissions. I just don't do them myself because I'm quite on the other end, I'm trying to charge the bare minimum I can and still get a decent value for my effort, and everywhere I look I'm being undercut anyway, by people with more skill.

what I don't see is a lot of pro artists doing commissions period.
>>1114376
tell me about it. I'd rather have an agent.
>>
>>1114122
I guess I should drop my price, I was really having to much fun.

I think the thing is your never really obligated to do a request, so its all about the clients budget.
>>
Hey there guys i have a question, so when you send money with your Paypal what method do you choose:

Send money to your family and friends?
or
Pay for services where you have the refund option?

Sorry if you don't understand englih is not my first language.
>>
>>1114514
Well, if the artist is not too well known or I'm unsure about them, I choose pay for services the first time I commission them.

If they deliver promptly and without any problems, any subsequent commissions I usually pay as friends and family so they get the full amount.
>>
>>1114518
thx for answering
>I choose pay for services the first time I commission them

but do they get mad if i choose this for the first time?
>>
>>1114525
I've never had an artist get mad because of this, but your mileage may vary. I'd say if they're well known, or you're okay with a bit of a risk, just choose the friends and family option.
>>
>>1114527
Actually im gonna tell him that i will choose the refund option, just to see how it goes the first time.
>>
>>1114514
>>1114518
>>1114525
>>1114527
>>1114528
Getting money from a slew of "family and friends" transactions can and probably will flag you as dodging paypal services, and dodging inspection / suspicion is important for lewd artists because it's against paypal's policies. If you really want the artist yo receive all they should, just toss in an extra buck or two. It doesn't affect you that much, and it makes for a nice gesture.
>>
>>1114546
So what you are saying is to choose the service and refund option right?
>>
Question to you artists:
When it comes to communicating, would it be better to sit down and have a chat/streaming session to discuss commissions and updates rather than playing email tag? As pointed earlier sometimes it takes awhile going back and forth with emails, but I understand if it won't work due to time zones differences/work schedules.
I'm just wondering if chatting somewhat face to face would speed up the process a little.
>>1114549
Not that anon, but yes.
As good as your intentions might be, trying to avoid Paypal fees through the "family and friends" option is a bad idea. Like what >>1114546 said, Paypal will investigate and terminate the artist's account if they're dodging fees and doing business with adult material.
>>
>>1114588

A paragraph for all the stuff that would dictate the price and include references of the characters present and then another paragraph for the actual content of the commission you'd like to see.
>>
>>1114588
Generally speaking, direct real-time contact is better for figuring out the specifics of a commission, but email has some advantages when it comes to things like providing references.
Personally, I prefer email, since I like taking my time to think when writing, but if a client wants to discuss things a little faster that's fine too.
>>
>>1114661
But do artist know who you are? I never commissioned somebody but the 2 anons where talking about sending money with paypal, don't they see it?
>>
>>1114674
Paypal tells the artist your name (or the name you've given Paypal, anyway), and you usually get the name of the artist as well (if they're on Paypal Business, I think you only get told their business name).
>>
>>1114588
As a commissioner, I normally send my first message over tumblr messenger if a tumblr is given, asking if it's okay. Afterward, if it is, I typically send refs and final transaction details ("I'm sending you x-usd for this like that") so tge record's there. Elsewise, I just communicate solely by email, which is also fine.

>>1114674
I have a secondary paypal with a made up name. I funnel money into it from my normal paypal. It's actually pretty effecient because
a) it gives 0 indication that I've been spending money on porn on my bank statement.
b) it gives me a clean-cut smut budget. I definitely overspend as it is, I make a lot of non-smut commissions, too, I just enjoy paying different artists, and if I didn't make myself go through an extra step or work out of an allowance, I'd probably break the bank.
>>
Just finished getting a commission from Doink ( >>1103013 ) What >>1112583 said is definitely correct, I've never had an artist so ready to roll up his shirt sleeves and get wrist deep in the autistic lore behind a character I was commissioning.

How do I console this argument? I post about every artist I commission, after I get it. If you want, as a sign of solidarity, I'll tag your post number when I reblog it from him on my tumblr where I reblog all my commissions?

>>1115262
People tend to use a set of expressions or mannerisms while posting that is easily recognizable after a while. When "one person" starts sounding the same as "the other guy" whom he's excessively shilling for, you gotta admit that's really suspicious.

And then the guy notices he posted the same expression as two different people and starts deleting posts to fix the problem, so yeah... samefagging is hard.

Oh, so that's what you were going for? The position and line of the nose indicate that you're looking at that face from straight in front, and the neck also doesn't help. You know what? Here, I hope you don't mind if I make a few adjustments to your pic.

There, if you do something like this, it looks more like the head is tilted downwards and less like it got squished.

Also, those lines in the blue circle, what are they? If it's for the boobs, they're upside down, if they're for the pecs, they're in the wrong place.

Aside from that, the torso looks a little too elongated, but that may be because you drew the legs too low, I think.

That's my thirty four cents.

At this point, paypal is too entrenched to be budged that easily. Even if someone DID do literally the same thing but better, people are lazy and prone to stay with the "safe" option. Also, there's the matter of getting sellers to accept the new service - part of what makes paypal popular is that it's accepted nigh EVERYWHERE. Bitcoin's fairly established at this point, but there's still a fuckload of places that'll take paypal but not bitcoin. The paypal killer would have to survive as an inferior option for years, and it's still not guaranteed to catch on. Which is unfortunate, of course! But that's how it is when you're up against a giant, ancient monstrosity like pp.
