If you commission an artist, please be aware that:
- there’s a difference between “giving artistic freedom” and “leaving the artist with no idea what to do”
- they are not being paid to go looking for references for you. Unless you tip extra, don’t make them go on a goose hunt for what you want
- the artist needs to be organized but so do you. Please keep track of things on your end and make sure you make the artist aware of things like what to avoid, what you would prefer to see, and specific details you would like. If they don’t do exactly what you want, consider if it was their fault or if you left something out.
- understand that most artists on here are working for pay that is well under minimum wage, and providing the best quality they can possibly create for you. They are not just art machines, they can only do so much.
