Commissioner Question

Hello There,

I am a commissioner and have been for quite a few years and just recently, in the last month, (March - April) I had an artist come out of the blue and say how fabulous my web site is and wanted to know if I could commission them. Now I don't usually commission anyone that comes to me out of the blue but the artist (who shall remain nameless) has rather good artwork and took the chance upon doing so to commission them. Now forgive me if this is rude or comes across as rude but if an ARTIST approaches you for a commission and such, would I be expectant in a quicker turn around? Or faster service then normal since they came to me? Would I still have the normal protection if I had gone to them and they accepted? I honestly think it's the first time I had someone come to me asking me to commission them and was on the back-foot. Is this also common practice or do the artists here rather have customers come to them?

Sorry for the rambling!

I sometimes ask my frequent clients if they would like to commission me to fill up the needed slots or if extra funds are needed. They're pretty happy that I go up to them, but as for random people...I don't know.It's a case by case basis. Some will find it rude and others will be okay with it.

As for turn around, service and ect. I think you should expect for the service to be done like everyone else.You'll still fall under the TOS and any other rules the artist has unless they specifically say other wise.

You should ask them about whether this scenario changes how the commission will be handled.

Thanks! I shall ask about their TOS cause I never actually saw them and since they approached me, I thought I'd be at the front of the line, naive I know cause I don't have people approach me like this and thought the circumstances were different.
