Previous thread: >>6335888
This thread is for discussions about commissioning artists through platforms such as Fantia, Skeb, Pixiv, and other similar sites.
The majority of artists who use these services are Japanese, so if you want Western ones, it would be better to look elsewhere.
Feel free to ask questions and recommendations for specific kinks/fetishes.

Fantia Commissions
https://fantia.jp/commissions/
These commissions are reserved for supporters but artists may allow those in the free plan to request too.

Skeb
https://skeb.jp

PixivRequest
https://www.pixiv.net/request
>Help! I can’t request R18/R18G because of my payment method!
Change your UI language to Japanese, and you should be able to.

it would be against their rules. you can try 1.5x their standard amount.

anyway to be able to use the suggested price for a request after canceling an order from the artist without having to wait or get a request accepted with the increased price?
>>
>>6382596
make a new account
>>
>>6382596
>>6382601
New account won't work if you're using the same credit card or something that connects it to the original. I'm assuming they use IP tracking too. I tried making multiple accounts for one artists and it wouldn't work, so it's something they're connecting. The sad part is the artist had no idea there was a penalty (I PM'd him about it) and would have lifted it if he could. A lot of these rules should be optional for artists, and not mandate they all have to deal with them. Many artists don't know that them declining a picture for one reason or another can potentially penalize the requester with a price increase on future requests. This is what makes pixiv better, on top of the lower base prices. It's too bad it just doesn't work for us westerners.
>>
>>6382879
that penalty is a setting that artists can turn off.

> It's too bad it just doesn't work for us westerners.
what's the problem, can't request R18?
just change your ui language to japanese
>>
>>6382887
They can turn it off but it's not as obvious as it should be. I talked to an artist about it in twitter DM's and he ended up making a public tweet announcing he had no idea it did that to some people he declined and apologized, since he only usually declined stuff because he didn't understand them,
>>
>>6382889
oh yeah, I don't disagree with you abut the UI of the site, it needs improvements. That's probably why they said the next big update is an overhaul of the whole site layout.
>>
>>6382892
Some users who live in the same country and city have some differences in UI too. Some of my friends have a text box called "references" to separately link references in, so the damn URL's aren't taking up half of their limited characters. Me? I don't, just cuz. I only have the normal description box and I have to link it all in their.
>>
>>6382919
It pops up depending on what you write. If it's not there just type URL or reference.

let them fix their website before an app.

And afaik per someone in the previous thread, its better for skeb not to have an app so that the puritan bloodhounds wont attempt to oegally shut it down

Not seeing an artists request queue on skeb can be pain, I wish I was a more patient person ha.
>>
>>6383902
The lack of information always sucks for commissions anywhere. You never know if you're week or two pending requests is due to the artist busy with others or because they're currently not actively taking requests. Patient or not, it's a terrible feeling having to dedicate an amount of money to something and not know if you're going to get it. What if another artist you like opens up? Do you cancel this one for them or continue waiting? More feedback would help.

Why the in the fucking fuck do artist get a whole fucking month to decide to accept your request or not. This is especially triggering when the average days is around 2 or 3 and they still seem to ignore it. I really wanna message them on pixiv/twitter and tell to hurry the fuck up, so I can find their replacements.
>>
>>6385983
Depends on the artist but I only message lesser known ones and some never even answer

If they take a month to even decide then they need to fuck off
>>
>>6386019
Some do that to have a lower average delivery date (on skeb at least) An artist "accepted" my request at the last day to accept and delivered right on the same day.
>>
>>6386046
That's retarded. What would he have done if you cancelled it before the "accepting" deadline and he was in the middle of finishing your stuff?

Subscribed to Fantia for the first time. Never thought it would be so jew-y.

If an artist doesnt accept my request within 1 and 1/2 to 2 weeks then i will usually dip.

It woukd be more polite to me if they outright quickly rejected the request. Some people shouldnt open their request windowsz

yeah fuck fantia, also if you unsubscribe for a month when money is tight, you lose ALL your previous months and have to pay for them again, fanbox is much more reasonable

I submitted a request on Skeb and I get a message from my credit card company declining the charge. I told them to accept the charge and it was showing as pending on my cards statement. I got a message later stating the artist accepted the request, but now no charge is showing on my card statement. The payment page however is in status 'payment confirmation'. So is it saying it was confirmed, or is it waiting for confirmation? Shouldn't the charge amount authorized be the amount I paid?

Is something fucked up? Supposedly your card is charged when the artist accepts the request. I don't want to lose my commission since it was accepted, and I don't want to screw things up for the artist either.

Sometimes it bothers me a lot when an artist clearly has time to read your request but doesn't accept or reject it? I usually check their twitter activity to see if they've been online and can see they've been actively tweeting or liking stuff in the past few hours, which is about a day or two after I've already accepted a request. It doesn't bother me that much when an artist has an estimated acceptance date, but when they don't have anything (pic related), it gets upsetting. There's no way to tell if they're going to wait two weeks or a month to read and accept/reject it. It's even worse when you have the choice between waiting on this artist or immediately choosing a slightly inferior western artist who is open for coms and taking them RIGHT NOW.

I know it's only been a day, but they've been actively browsing twitter since I uploaded. They even liked a bunch of stuff in the past hour and even 30 minutes ago. Maybe it's because I've dealt with other artists who remained open but don't actively take commissions, so they have people just wasting their time. There are plenty of artists who will leave their requests open and only accept stuff when they feel like doing them, which could take weeks or months. The system needs to be better than this, especially when we have some artists doing loophole shit by waiting until they finish a work to accept it, so they can have the 1-3 day clearance rate. Skeb had to make an announcement over artists doing this a year back. They asked users to not be so quick to cancel requests because an artist may be working on it before accepting (lol?), and also asked artists to stop doing that as well. They should have just called artists out and threatened it with a temporary ban.
>>
I see there's a draft option inside the requests tab, is there anyway to use it? It sounds convenient but I don't see anywhere to create them for a request later.
>>
Worst when an artist makes you wait until the very last few days of the deadline till they even remember to start on your commission.

But yeah, a marker that let's us know they've at least started working on our commission would be nice. It's so annoying not knowing anything. It makes skeb commissioning artists who don't have that 1-2 day acceptance rate and 1 week completion rate less appealing. It's gotten to a point where I'd rather commission inferior quality western artists just for the security and less anxiety. Skeb feels more like a hassle at times... and we're paying customers. I get the site creators wanting to give artists freedom and protection, but this is at the cost of their customers feeling like shit.

>>6387427
Isn't that only for skeb or jap artists? That's why it lists skeb and pixiv. It's to talk about those Japanese artist based sites and talk about the pros, cons, and issues people have with them. I'm pretty sure you blogposting about some western autist upsetting you because he asked for your characters' names isn't what this thread is for.
>>
>>6387359
>>6387405
didn't you mention this in previous threads?
Wasn't it already resolved?
Anyway, you should label your character sheets or whatever.
Kinda like this I guess:
"Belongs to: (You)"
"Designed by: (Artist)"
>>
I'm surprised skeb has no penalty for artists who have abysmal complete rates. Or maybe there is, and ordinary users just can't see it. I once had an artist hold me up for two months and then he didn't deliver, turned out his completion rate was was 30%

Any official mangaka artists on here?

Also any good ecchi skebbers that you would recommend?
>>
>>6388289
I recommend following all your favourite artists on twitter. Once they open their skeb, you will get a notification. If they already using skeb, they will have it linked in their bio. Though from experience they tend to ask for a fuck ton of money. Though nowadays I prefer to browse the new artworks category on skeb. You can browse and pick what you like and the prices are reasonable. This way I found some gems that provided insane art for dirt cheap prices.
>>
>>6388341
I already am. But almost everyone I like is so mega successful that they don’t and will never have skebs. I have been doing the new artworks category as well but I like this idea of having somewhat official art by a mangaka

Kind of an unrelated question, but what is the best method/program for watermark removal?

Photoshop and a combination of redrawing (if needed) and the "Content aware fill" option. Though DMing the artist for a clean version is way easier. Frankly I never needed to do that as the artists always provided a PSD file where I could remove text and watermarks.

Context does matter. Some artists just don't like trying males or femboys, unless they can pass as mostly girl-like. You mention they're leaning fem without much context, so we don't know if it's some weird as faggy look char or someone actually ugly, and the artist doesn't want to do that kind of stuff. "Kosmos"

Yes, they always charge you the moment you send out a request. They will release the charge if you cancel or the artist rejects the request. It's one of the annoying parts of this site. It's why people don't like how hard it is to know when an artist is not taking requests but still left their request forms open. It's not about the wait, but the fact that our money is held up while we wait on it.

God i would hate western artists to have skeb, mostly because it would compound some of their horrible attitudes and work ethics

it upsets me when the art that gets drawn for me got an artstyle slightly off from the artists "regular" art, it feels rushed even when I pay the recommended amount..
>>
>>6391058
that just means that's the quality for the price and their regular art is more than that
>>
>>6391181
if regular art doesn't match their recommended price they are nigger jews that should be lynched.

>>6391181
so I have to "guess" their price? its dumb..and its against skeb's rules to ask artists
>>
>>6391181
That's such a bullshit practice. I'm all for giving power to artists but in this case, we requesters pretty much get screwed over.
>>
>>6391229
Congratulations, you now understand that Skeb is gambling. Some artists do their normal style in the recommended amount, while some will be a bit lazy, but those are rare.
>>
>>6391219
so you wouldn't mind if the recommended price is very expensive but you get their "regular" art?

>>6391229
I would like something of a description box or a price list but skeb doesn't want any of that shit.

>>6391494
that's why I don't like skeb's policies. they're too in favor of artists, there should be a compromise.

I believe before. the delivery time was how long you finished from when you accept the request.

For instance, you send a request on the 1st day, they accepted it on the 7th day, then finished the request on the 8th day. Their delivery time is one day. (7th day to 8th day)

Now, with the new change, their delivery time would be eight days (1st day to 8th day)

wanted to clarify I sent a request but it got rejected but I noticed originally i requested at an old recommended price 8k but now the recommended price is like higher at 15k now.

alright, here's how it is.

You send request#1 to Artist A for $150
Crossposting ON

Then you sent request#2 to Artist B for $100
Crossposting ON

When one of these artists accept their respective request, the other one is cancelled.
Obviously, when the artist accepts, the charge will go through.

Does anyone know if there's a markup fee for if you want to resend a request? I know there's an additional price for some time if you cancel a request before the artist approves and try to send one to them again, but in my case the artist had to reject my request due to time constraints. So I was wondering if there'll be a markup fee for if I'll try sending the same request to them next time they open.

don't think it will be there

After waiting for 2 weeks only to get declined, I literally give artists only 2 days to accept, otherwise I'll replace them.

>>
>>6402266
That's good to hear.

What happened was that I sent in the request yesterday, but they later tweeted that they changed their completion deadline from 60 to 90 days just this morning and encouraged to resend requests. I didn't wanna cancel mine because of the markup fee for when you request again so I just waited to see if they'll accept or decline the current request.

They apologized for having to reject requests due to the initial shorter deadline anyways, so I'm fine waiting for when they open again to just resend my request then.

one was on day 2 with a three-day response expiration and another on day 5 out of 30th.

Honestly I wasn't hoping for either of them to go through and I was following their twitter.
The former got accepted which cancelled the second one.
Then the artist for the second one posted something like "while I was thinking about how to draw the request, it got cancelled. I think another artist approved them. I hope they don't think I'm neglecting them."

Sorry bud. You not saying anything about the request on twitter made assume you didn't give a shit.

I've only tipped once and that's because I went through this entire thing where my instructions weren't clear which resulted in a bunch of wasted time because I had them redraw some shit

>>6404105
I tip all the time and I wonder if I should.
Usually close to 20% percent.
I have a few artist I tip heavy because they seem to appreciate me and they do a lot of work for me. For them it's closer to 30 to 40%.
Also if I don't like an artist I just never use them again. I've had some slow fucks that didn't even give me a good service. I regret tipping them.
I'd say tip for the second commission after you know you like them or try to tip if they did a good job on the first.
No I don't have a ton of cash buy people treating me well and going beyond need tips in my opinion.

It's really weird. I see a couple of artists charging less on their pixiv requests by a big margin. They'll charge like 10k-15k on skeb, but the base price on pixiv is about 5k-8k. It really makes me wonder how artists are calculating things, or if there's some big fee difference both websites are charging them.

well, the fees for them is: skeb(6.8%) vs pixiv(10%)

I've seen some people use skeb for complete quality while they use pixiv request for lesser detailed/sketch quality pictures.

anyway, my initial picture was that artist's "commercial" quality drawing and this one is the quality of the skeb. I can see the difference between the two but I still think the price difference is too much.
>>
>>6410095
Maybe you get full distribution rights with the commercial picture? That would explain the price.
>>
>>6410242
nah, don't think. It's probably "the level of quality is on par with what I draw commercially".
I think the high price is because he makes a lot of mistakes during the drawing process, so he spends a lot of time redoing stuff.

Its different per artist. Some pixilate or blue the whole image on their socials if you choose the hide option. Others only share it on their paid fanbox. There are some that don't share it at all. But they can always choose to share it even if you hide it on skeb. Your best bet is to check if they have some private skebs in their completed works and check if they released that on their pixiv or twitter.
>>
>>6413619

Is there some kind of incentive for artists to wait til the last minute to deliver or is it just procrastination? It feels a little too deliberate.
>>
>>6413827
Most of the time skeb is something that is accepted on the side of their usual work routine whether that is their hobby drawings or if they're serialized that shit
Rather than being incentivized to deliver it late it's more like there's no incentive to deliver it early
>>
>>6413827
there are no harsh penalties for missing a deadline. if they're busy with their real jobs and/or doing commercial illustrations, these commissions are on the lower priorities.
>>
>>6413827
Not much penalty for doing this. Remember, artists used to start commissions before even accepting it, then accepting the commission the day before they're finished, to have a quicker finish rate. The website tries it's best to make sure artists are respected, not scammed, or rushed, but also does these things at the cost of its customers. There's so many features and rules easily abused by them, and it sucks.

Yeah, I guess he was just being lazy then. Here's a tip, be very specific towards what you want in every situation. You want a full body picture? You make sure you tell them what you want. I'm not blaming you for this happening, just letting you know that us experienced skeb users have had to deal with some kind of commission detail hiccup and know not to give them any room to do something else anymore. Since we can't see the sketch to give corrections like with western artists, it's extremely crucial you make sure they understand exactly what you mean.
>>
>>6415952
I don't think they were lazy because most of the art they did was half body.

That was my very first skeb, but 9 other skebs were finished before that one. The artist literally sat on my request for 3 months and they did it from start to finish in a couple of days out of the blue two weeks before the deadline.

Saw the stream of it being drawn in progress and was surprised the artist is female because women drawing Bara are unicorns

Honest question: does this really look like it's worth 32k yen?
I've been following this artist for some time (because I'm interested in commissioning something too) and I've been monitoring the requests they make. One of them was this. Some person paid 32k for that.
Because I just don't see it.
I'm just thinking that if I was the requester, I'd feel ripped off because the artist can make this type of quality: https://www.pixiv.net/en/artworks/86374782
Not to mention, the artist waited until only a few hours left before the deadline to submit it. Seems like they phoned it in.

>>6416566
Yes it is, since one is 5 pages and the other is 1 page. Most artists ask between 10k-20k yen per page, so it's actually quite cheap.

Looking to start making requests on Pixiv instead of Skeb, but i have a question.Will you get banned or anything if you switch your account to Japanese to make a R18 request and switch back after it's done?

I don't mind waiting 2 months for a request to be completed but waiting an indefinite amount of time to know whether your request is accepted in the 1st place is stupid.

Pic related set me back 10k. it's simple sure, but he's able to emulate the anime art style of Naruto really well so for me that price was worth it. If you're worried about quality don't make your request too complicated and keep it at the10k range for a commission that has 1 character featuring a faceless/lower half male.

also he's pretty busy with his job so expect a long wait time from him.

Nope. you're literally just changing the UI language. No reason for a ban.

Yeah I figured as much, thanks for the answer. What about translating form English to Japanese? Is it automatic or do you have to translate your own request before you send it off?
>>
>>6417513
I translate my stuff beforehand
>>
>>6416176
Yeah just specify you want something like that pose and not the exact thing because often times they won't want to just trace someone else's shit
>>
>>6416566
Price = "How much you have to pay me to consider your idea rather than either doing my normal job or hobby pictures I want to draw"
not necessarily the actual "value" of their work.
It's why you often see people who are serialized costing much more money even if there are hobbyists who might be more technically skilled

So how does it work? I got an email but it's all in japanese.
>>
>>6419957
just send a request and your artist(s) will get 100% of the revenue
>>
Hm. one question i have about the email sent out is this bit

"・Skebでは事前に料金表等で納品物の品質を保証する行為は禁止されています。
「○○円以上はカラーになります」「3日以内に必ず納品します」といった掲載はできません。過去の作品を金額と共に掲載することは問題ありません。"

Is that saying that artists can't have a price sheet for commissions? Or is it specifically forbidding certain things? I know very few japanese artists have a price sheet, but i just want to make sure. If they do ban price sheet that's kinda weird, even for a place like skeb.
>>
>>6420050
The reason price sheets aren't supposed to be allowed is that the recommended price is supposed to be your price
They don't want people to have some off-site bullshit that people can't see basically, users are already disadvantaged as it is under skeb's TOS
>>
>>6420051
I suppose that makes sense. One artist I've gotten a couple of commissions from did post a price sheet, but it was written as both pixiv request and skeb. Nothing unreasonable on their price sheet, but still, good to know I guess. The artist has the base price that gets you one good quality drawing, just if you want alts or stuff, or less detail, that's when the price changes. I guess I just won't really talk about it as to not get the artist in trouble.

Also I wonder why that is that pixiv request isn't available in english, but if you change to japanese and nothing else, they don't care. I wonder if it's an oversight or just pixiv covering their bases, but not really actually wanting to restrict it.
>>
I got like 3 appeals even when I haven't commissioned in like 2 weeks
>>
>>6420060
probably an oversight. typical japanese web design. it took them over 1.5+ years to "fix" foreign credit cards
>>
my request got done. it's slightly off from what I expected. I still like it though.
I asked for a girl to be straddling a sleeping dude and the perspective is from him. I didn't mention any fucking or penetration but they drew that in the picture

>>
>>6420483
yeah, you're probably right
>mainly draws sex
you're not wrong
>>
>>6420476
Oh. well if you got the money then you can do it
>>
Are requests always public? And do they have an intermediary who will translate for you if you request in English, or is it better to ask in Japanese?
>>
>>6420849
for skeb, if artists turned the option on, you can make it hidden.

for pixiv, you would need to write in your request that you want it hidden, they may or may not do it.

both use machine translators
>>
>>6420856
What's the best way to get your intent across if you only have basic Japanese skills, but not enough to describe a commission in detail?

Pay a translator that does doujins?

>What's the best way to get your intent across if you only have basic Japanese skills, but not enough to describe a commission in detail?
DeepL is pretty reliable, I've come to find. I use that for both Skeb and Pixiv and I haven't had any seriously mistranslated commissions aside from one time when DeepL translated string bikini as string panties. Speaking of translators, commissioning translations is pretty good. I think you can get them cheaper if you just have them do the script and you do the editing and typesetting yourself, but if you're not confident in your editing abilities, I'd just pay them to do the editing too. It'd just take longer.

>>6420856
Pretty sure there's no option to make requests hidden on Pixiv, since the request needs to be uploaded to Pixiv before it can be completed. At least, I haven't ever seen a request get deleted afterwards.

the option to hide it on pixiv is up to the artist. that's why I said:

>Going through my Skeb Follows to see if I can think of something to commission

>Only has delivered three requests in total and to my knowledge has never closed up ever so they're not a particularly busy or popular artist
Stuff like this makes me realize that the end of the day Japanese artists can be just as egocentric as Western artists.
I've seen similar stuff happening where literally who artist with 200 followers on Twitter whose Skeb is an affordable 5000 Yen gets cocky after one or two deliveries an they bump their price just to never see a request again. Crazy how little self-awareness there is out there.
>>
Does my request get auto cancelled/refunded after passing the Approval deadline or the Complete Deadline?

I wonder if this artist will ask me to resend again, because it feels like i dont even exist.
>>
>>6420985
I think it's unfair to call him egocentric, cocky and unaware if you don't know him. I think many people forget that an artist's pricing isn't necessarily dependent on how highly they think of their own work. It could very well be that they just value their own free time that much. I as a commission artist set very high prices and barriers to entry because I like taking lots of time with many revisions in close cooperation with my clients, and I earn enough money through work and investing already so it doesn't need to turn a profit. I know that there are people out there with drawings twice as strong as mine for half the price, and that's okay. High prices also tend to weed out poorfag NPC types who always assume the worst of others and gossip behind your back, leaving only the nice, candid clients with deep pockets
>>
>>6420985
Do you think their art is good enough for 20000 yen?
>>
>>6421155
I suppose you raise some fair points form the artist side.
However, it's hard to understand or see those things from the client side. People eat with their eyes, and they will judge things first and foremost on the quality of the drawing and if the drawing appeals to their particular tastes.
>>6421175
Hell no. I can double that and get a full background with two or even three characters with even variants from other follows I've got. And who actually have faster response/complete average days at that, too.
>>
>>6420985
>Only has delivered three requests in total and to my knowledge has never closed up ever so they're not a particularly busy or popular artist
Definitely don't assume low activity means low popularity necessarily
There's a serialized mangaka that had his requests set to 20k and constantly tweets his skeb thing out so I assumed he doesn't get many requests and sent him one, turns out he must just be discerning as fuck and only accepts certain stuff

I've also seen artists raise their prices solely to decrease the amount of requests they get on the regular as a filter
>>
Ill take a break from skeb. Maybe 1 or 2 requests for the entire winter hibernation. Cant stand these long times to have something delivered
>>
>>6420985
50 dollars for potentially hours of work depending on complexity/colors is underselling yourself if anything
>>
>>6421784
So whoever takes the longest to do something should be paid the most regardless of the end result? You heard the man, everyone. Those of you who waited until 5 minutes before the deadline for your deliveries to arrive should actually be grateful since it means you got the greatest possible delivery, and should in fact give the artists a sizable boost because them taking so long to deliver means their work was super duper ultra extra valuable over that of someone who delivered quickly and timely.
Quality of the work is what should primarily define the value, or price, of one's work, not the amount of time spent of it. It is one of the many variables involved, but never should it be the primary one since it's one metric that wildly differs among people. This doesn't apply to art but practically every time of job in the world.

>>
>>6421791
what are you going on about? i never said anything about delivery speed, i meant that art (potentially) takes a lot of time to make, so raising your price accordingly to match how long you end up working on it makes sense (if the artist spends 10 hours to finish it at 50 dollars then he is valuing time at 5 dollars an hour, which i would say is underselling yourself if your work is good)
if your artist is a lazy shit that takes 30 days to finish a piece then don't commission him, its not like he's spending every waking moment of the day working on it
like you said, you're paying for the quality of the final product and the final product itself, not for him to finish it fast, that's a bonus- obviously everyone wants their work done quickly so that they can spill seed to it immediately but i don't know why you're bringing up delivery speed when you proceed to say quality defines price
>>
>>6421791
>Quality of the work is what should primarily define the value, or price
Cocksucker #424923 on /h/ doesn't get to dictate prices based on his own idea of "quality". Price is set by the producer (artist) and the market indicates whether it wants his products or not, based on a variety of factors, including: drawing quality, delivery speed, communication, social clout, personal preference and rarity of the subject matter. This isn't even a situation where the artist is selling something important like potatoes, but luxury goods (porn drawings). If I am an artist who is generally unwilling to do commission work and I draw a hot new fetish and a guy comes up to me and says "holy shit dude let me commission you" and I say "no" and he says "holy shit I'll pay you 10 grand for it" I'm not going to go "welp price should be based on quality so I can't accept this" and deny him

"Tweeting" as in posting a pic on your twitter for all the world to see? How do artists try to earn more by putting deliveries in fanbox and whatnot? Or does it mean something else?
>>
>>6422568
Basically if you intend to distribute outside of personal use, you have to request it.

I'm after what I'm tentatively calling "corruption/NTR style." I see more Korean artists with it [ratatatat74, gungnae] but some Japanese artists draw it too [sanuki_(kyoudashya)]. There's a similarity that I can't put my finger on, I think it might be the faces.
In any case, do any of you know some artists with that kind of style/look that take requests? I tried one (https://www.pixiv.net/en/users/63543012) but he blew me off, probably because I offered him barely over his minimum to draw my OC.

Nope, just start using your name from now on. They only reply to inquiries involving the laws and regulations.
Basically, "fuck you"

I see. Also is there a way to check what triggers the NSFW flag and can they ban you if you try to go around it. The request is SFW, but I suspect fellatio gesture フェラ素振り makes the site think it's NSFW. Or is it nipple 乳首?
>>
