Just a quick update on everything, especially those with current commissions out with me. I'm currently on vacation for the next 9 days, but I've got my tablet with me and plan on working on your commissions whenever I can!
I'd also like everyone to know how I do things so there are no concerns about your commission and so that I can be completely transparent - like a vastly overinflated balloon!
With a big collection of commission orders like I've just had from opening them up temporarily on the old price guide, I work on things in order based on time of the payment followed by time you contacted me. Meaning if you contacted me first but paid last, you would be at the end of the queue. I do this because money and time is precious, if you've handed over your money to me I want to make sure that you get your drawing!
I have been looking into a publicly accessible queue status system to make this easier for everyone to see where they reside in the queue, but it's difficult as some people want to remain anonymous in their commissions. Does anyone have any suggestions to remedy this? Maybe assign some sort of ticket queue number individually?
As far as the drawing process goes, after we agree on your idea and I've received your payment, I will sketch up your idea based on where you are in the queue upon payment. The sketch is a rough idea of your commission and can be easily changed so that I can get your drawing just the way you want it (to the best of my ability hehe). Once you confirm that you like the sketch, I proceed to line or colour or illustrate it depending on the level you bought. Throughout this process I will try to give you screenshots of the progress until it's done.
Lastly, if you have not received your initial sketch yet, this probably means that I am still working on other commissions ahead of you, so please don't worry, I haven't forgotten you. If you ever have a concern please note me.
I hope this has been helpful! If you have an idea for an anonymous queue system please comment!
