ref commission advice

Before I start, I'm gonna say that I understand that every artist does things differently and I should always check their TOS before commissioning them. But I'm asking for advice on these things in a "is this normal/customary" kind of way.

I've never commissioned a ref sheet before and I'm not sure how to go about it because of two big questions I have.
  1. It's pretty common to see clean and dirty versions of ref sheets. If I wanted both, would I have to pay extra to get two copies...? Did you have to pay extra for both copies?
  2. Is it considered...impolite or rude to ask for a .psd/.sai file of your ref sheet? For example if later you want to change the text because you edited the character. If not would this cost extra too usually?
Any advice on this would be appreciated, like I said I know everyone is different but I want to see if there's a general consensus.

1.) echoing everyone else. . . I would not charge for an adult/clean version, but if I put myself in the place of another artist who'd prefer to charge for different versions, I think i'd see charging more for requested censors (for example, if you request to add clothing to make it clean, then that should cost more). if you just ask for a clean version without any specifics, then I'd see myself charging less.

2.) it's not rude, but it's also a personal question. I see myself kind of protective over my layers, because too many people want to swipe those latex secrets contained in my art. @_@ Id probably flatten those things before sending the psd. . . It depends on the person really, but if they don't want to send it, let's hope they don't make a big scene about it. XD
