When you pay for a commission, you want what you ask for right? When your pic is posted you don't want to look at it and say "Well that was money wasted." A few pics in the past, both recent and long ago, have been such pics, and I just need to get this off my chest.
Artists, if you don't want to do something, or don't know what to do, then you can always opt out, we can understand (well most of us). But please do not take an idea and go "I think this is better" without consulting us first. I, and hopefully we, are willing to listen to what you think but whether or not that happens on paper is our decision. A few pics of mine have been either lack luster or all of their original meaning just went right out the window due to an artist not contacting me or at least sending a WIP; a WIP is really nice and ensures satisfaction, and satisfaction means repeat customers. A few artists are not on my repeat list for such a reason.
Don't ask for names, you won't get them and I hold no ill will towards them or blast their talents. But please, ALL artists, ask first, send WIPs, and if it doesn't work out you can always give a refund and back out, cuz I'd rather try again another day rather than get something that doesn't make me want to commission you again.
