Here is a video on how to handle commission. Not just for the artists but for the commissioner as well.
So if I'm reading this right-- past experiences may cause you to look at jobs with potential clients suspiciously? That's pretty common for most people I think. Definitely a struggle.
Where do you take story commisions?Not as an artist, but as a story writer. I was paid to ghostwrite a fanfic of a fandom that I have decent knowledge of way back.
However, the client also wanted to insert some weird (for me at least) fetishes in there, and wanting "easy" money, I complied.
It all started out well enough, but I just lost passion halfway through. I had a hard time writing the story arc, and it felt like hell trying to write the story while taking note of and inserting his "unique" points since those are really not stuff that I'm into. In the slightest.
The weekly submissions turned into two or three week submissions, and I honestly felt really bad for the guy. I felt that I was doing him dirty because of how nice he was, and he was extremely patient and accomodating to my schedule.
I did finish the fanfic eventually. Closed ending and all. Then promptly resigned. At the very least, I would never allow myself to leave him hanging after all he did for me.
Not sure how helpful or on-topic this is, but I hope this gave you some insights.
I don't anymore. Well.. sort of but not really. Lately I've just been getting a lot of random offers from various sources.Where do you take story commisions?
