An example of commissioned artwork work flow
- You contact me via my website or my Artfinder store regarding your interested subject, budget, medium and any special request etc., along with several reference photos attached.
- I will draw a concept digital sketch based on your information. This digital sketch is for both of us to visualize the whole concept, composition, color theme etc. Please keep in mind that you won’t see too much fine details such as fur or whisker in this sketch.
- If you like the digital sketch, then I will send you a contract for both sides to sign. On Artfinder I will make a commission proposal. Please keep in mind that you do not have any obligation for this digital sketch. We won’t proceed to next step if you don’t like the sketch. 😀
- Both sides agree with the contract and sign.
- You pay for the 50% upfront deposit. Once the deposit is received, I’ll start working on real canvas. Please keep in mind that the deposit is non refundable. In case you don’t want the finished painting, I will keep the deposit to cover my expense.
- Work in progress. Please keep in mind that the average processing time might be shorter than I mentioned above. I always put extra days in case of any unexpected happens.
- After the painting is done. I will take a high resolution photo for archival purpose. The painting itself will be protected by retouching varnish.
- You pay for the rest 50% right before shipping.
- Once the final payment is received, I’ll package and ship your painting. It will always require a recipient’s signature as proof of delivery no matter which carrier I use.
- You receive the painting. ❤
Note: The reason why I include Artfinder here is because they have a straight forward and easy to use commission system. Yes they will take commission fee after the final sale. But if you feel more comfortable working with me via a platform, they will be my choice. 😀
