IMPORTANT STUFF DOWN HERE
I'm starting to use an informal contract of sorts. There's no signing or anything like that. This is just to help protect both me and my commissioners from unexpected mishaps. While it's written in plain English (I'm no lawyer), here's a super simplified list of protections and rights:
For the protection of both parties.
A detailed list of what is expected in the final piece so nothing is forgotten.
Declaration of ownership for all stages.
For the protection of the commissioner:
A schedule of each milestone.
Full or partial refunds available if the artist fails to deliver on time, at all or to expectation
Guarantee of 3 revisions without extra charge
Capability of special requests regarding the handling of the piece.
For the protection of the artist:
Payment plan and schedule if applicable.
The right to request additional money if the commissioner asks for a short schedule, too many revisions, scope creep, or cancellation of project.
Limits on refunds under certain conditionsBASE:

If there's anything you see that could be added or revised, let me know.
I know that's a lot compared to most fan artists, but it will make the rest of the process a LOT easier and less stressful.
So... yeah. I'm open for commissions. If you'd like one, send me a pm.
I'll edit this post when I can't take any more.
