Honestly, this would be a good idea since I've spent 3 years making a realistic commission and 2 years on a few trade pieces ;;
I must be such a disappointment to some people..

Yeahh.... ^^;
But at least I try to give updates every now and again so that they know I am actually trying to work on them and not just leaving them to gather dust in my art folder ;u;

Some people would request a refund after a month? :noes:  Oh dear... I may be pissing off a lot of commissioners...

I can't vote on my own poll but if I could I'd say 3 months. Only thing is there are some commissioners I've paid and it's been well over 6 months months now and I've still not had anything ;.;

I guess it would be different for money.  I was thinking points.  I hope you get your commissions! :nose:  Hopefully they have every intention to do them.

I think most of them have had real life things pop up. But it would have been nice to be contacted and offered a refund ;.;

I 've only commissioned a handful of artists, and they have all got the art done within a week or two.
But for me, unless they stated a reason for a long delay in getting the art done (like family, health of computer issues) then I wouldn't really wait any longer than a month.

Yeah but even if they do state these things, surely there is still a limit to how long one should wait?
