If you commission me, do expect to send money after you approve the sketch and keep in contact with me. Provide the correct email addresses or other contact for me because I will be using that contact to show you progress. This has happened a lot to me where the commissioner will disappear and leave me with no payment. I'm done with that. If you don't approve your sketch within a week, I will cancel the commission. I'm tired of waiting on people taking their time in getting back to me. I don't have a lot of time to sit there and wait on you. I will still be taking payments after approval of the sketch; however like I said, I will not be waiting any longer than a week.
I seem to be mostly having this problem from Furcadian users. This has always been an issue in the past for me where the commissioner will disappear, and it has always been with users from Furcadia. I had no idea why, but I think I'm going to stop offering port commissions for people there if it continues.
