Copy/pasted from my journal announcement on FurAffinity, SoFurry, and Weasyl with some slight tweaking for the blog.
I have decided to open up commissions again. They were fun to do and I would love to write for you guys again.
Also, I’ve decided to open up requests and trades. I finally got around to writing up guidelines for those. All the info can be found under the “About Commissions, Requests, and Trades” menu.
For commissions, I will be taking ONE LAST slot.
First off, this won’t necessarily be a first come, first serve. I will go over your commission request with you via private messages/notes and if I’m willing to do it, you get a slot. However, this depends on how many message me wanting a commission, so it may end up being a first come, first serve if I don’t get a lot of commission requests.
Secondly, I won’t start the commission process until all slots are filled. In the case of slots taking too long to fill up (they don’t fill up by the end of this year), I may go ahead and start on them.
Finally, I do not want due dates. I’ve had this happen to me a couple times already and it got too stressful for me, plus I felt horrible finishing a commission long after the customer requested a completion date. I strive to complete a commission within a month of approval, two months maximum. Writing takes time to do well, and life likes to get in the way…a lot. But I push through and find or make the time to write. On that note, I try to give customers progress updates as much as I can, even if there’s not much progress. This is purely an assurance for you so you’re not waiting months upon months for a commission.
Please don’t hesitate to send a message my way if you have any questions!
