Wasen't sure what to title this xD I know there are a few of our members here that earn some money of their art (which is amazing!) and I've always been curious of how it works. When someone contacts you to do a commission, do you ask for payment before hand? Or do you recieve money once the job is done? And if it's the secound way you do it, how can you know for certain that the customer will pay? And how does the money get transferred, through paypall?
Some take payment in advance, some after the work is done. How I used to do it was to ask for payment once their commission sketch was done, but I've changed it to usually ask for the fee in advance now. I've had a couple of instances where the customer vanished after receiving their sketch and since I spend a considerable amount of time on concept and sketch I decided I wanted to be sure the work was worth it.
PayPal is by far the best way to handle money as well. Some artists send invoices, some use "normal" transfers.

prismatic: the board seems to get alot of guest traffic, they prob just need to see a little activity to be willing to stick around

abalancedbreakfast: I do have an idea, it'd combine aspects of Lion RP and a geopolitical RP group I used to be a part of too, imagine playing Risk but with lion prides

prismatic: soo sort of like TLK RP with a game of throne-ish type plot line? sounds like it could be fun Of course there would prob always be a fair mix of those looking to take over others and those content just to hold onto their own lands.

prismatic: The RP I was a part of years ago had many diffrent lands with prides and tribes who had a mix of allies and enemies respectfully. There were always plots going on back and forth between them. It made for very interesting RP
Apr 8, 2020 3:09:23 GMT
prismatic: There was all that and individual plots between characters and it sort of all tied together. Wouldn't be hard to start something like that here if yu guys wanted to. all we'd need is a few of us willing to start a pride as a leader and also willing to RP
Apr 8, 2020 3:11:20 GMT
prismatic: a character or two in the other prides. Then guests that visit hoping to find an active board will see RP going on and hopefully jump in with characters of their own
