2. Explore and find the perfect platform to commission an artist with a good commission contract.

You must take care of important details in the initial contact.
Don’t hesitate to ask artists and see to yourself if they are taking commissions and will accept the type of work you would like done. Many artists can be contacted in different platforms like portfolio sites or emails or websites or social media pages and it can help make the connection for you.
Here are 4 basic things you need to consider and every contract must have:
- Creative Process
This is the place the artists should detail their necessities. For instance, on the off chance that you need a picture of your pet, the craftsman may request that you send a few away from of the pet. Likewise, this is where you organize how regularly you'll get visual updates, some drafts, progress photographs, and so forth, and in what structure.

The contract must have the full description of what you verbally agreed on. You must make sure that everything is well-written and both parties will benefit from the agreement.
- Agreement of Payment
Paying ahead of time is significant, as it permits craftsmen to buy materials, and spread their underlying costs. So as to expound on the value, the craftsman will likely rundown the costs of different pieces, as a perspective.

The course of events ought to contain time gauges for all aspects of the creation procedure. It ought to incorporate an installment plan, cutoff times for drafts and compositional reviews, (with their endorsement), and the time expected to finish and convey the work.
