    So I'm in the middle of doing a multi-piece request for someone.

    I'm still fairly new to the art world. I plan to start accepting commissions when I get more skilled, and get access to a PC and art apps. I want to know more because I know nothing about commissions except that they can make you good money based on your skills in art.

    Sorry in advance if this has been discussed before. I couldn't find any threads in which it was. Hi all. So, cutting to the chase, I've never had to verify the age of a commissioner. All of my NSFW commissioners have been close friends or acquaintances that I can confidently know the age of...
