I don’t understand he is a “Beauty guru” don’t they make thousands of dollars? But he couldn’t pay her 100$? Like what is 100$ going to do to your bank account if you’re rich.

I'm a fashion designer. No one cares about your personal issues. Business is business. Pay the money on time. If you can't manage money then don't make money. You don't deserve it. Thank you.

Jesus Christ! Do you tell your land lord “you should feel honored I’ve payed you for the couple months I’ve lived here, I’ll pay you the last month a year later, but be grateful I’ve already paid you for your apartment.” No!! STOP TREATING US ARTISTS LIKE GARBAGE!!!

Y'know I feel like if he didn't spend money putting ground up stones and flowers on his face he'd might not have to worry about money :/

this is gonna be heLLA late but my best friend is an artist and she just started to do commissions, i told her to set up her paypal because she was taking commissions FOR FREE and even though i should not have any business in how she runs her work i was worried she was going to be taken advantage of- like many artists and it’s super unfortunate. i hope ppl actually have some COMMON SENSE and pay artists FIRST, not AFTER.

It's sad that artists are so used to people trying to scam them or get free art out of them that they even have to worry about this sort of thing. Like just missing one payment with your artist most likely causes them a mild anxiety attack.
It's just sad man. Artists deserve better

i don’t even have to finish the video to gather this — if you “don’t have the money” DONT ASK FOR THE JOB. if you aren’t at least able to pay up front if she asked, literally don’t ask for the job. basic human decency. whether she blew it out of proportion or left things out, if he wanted that job he shouldn’t have waited a year to pay. if i were her i would’ve sued him for more

everytime someone asks him a question even remotely related to something he IS guilty of he gets super pissy and fed up out of nowhere and starts a low key twitter tantrum. just pay your artists people, dont try and offer "exposure", ask what the price is for what you want done and if you cant afford what they ask for you either save for it or try and find an artist who charges rates that are aligned with your budget. real simple, i dont get why people still try and stiff artists out of money cause "they should appreciate the EXPOSUREEEeeee"

I've only had 3 commissions one 2 years ago for a 20p dragon design, which I refused to do at first because I design cats, anthros, ferals and humans, bear in mind I was only 13 and I was naive. He refused to accept that I didn't draw dragons and would harass me every single day, then once I gave in and finished a dragon piece for him that I had to reference hard, he refused to pay, so I refused to give him the art, he only saw sketches and the colour pallet. I told him my rates were extremely cheap because I wasn't having issues with money and I was young and didn't think my art was worth much. Luckily this year I made a great friend who's an author and she commissions me for character designs and often pays me extra since my prices are so low and she's one of my closest friends

if this was me i would make them pay upfront atleast 25-50 dollars and as i progressed with their commissions i would ask 5 dollars a day that i do projects for them.

tell me if this seems fair or not

He said he needed to pay his bills so he couldn’t pay her? I’m sorry but once you make business with someone that becomes your bill as well. I’m a hairstylist and if someone wouldn’t pay me because they need to take card of their bills? So am I just not suppose to care about mine because you don’t want to pay me? IF YOU DO BUSINESS WITH ANYONE , THEY ARE PART OF YOUR BILLS!

A tip for all artists ! When someone commissions me I do a sketch show it to them if they like it then THERE they pay me and I Finnish and give it to them, if they don’t I can make another or if they want to call it off I tell them now is the time to do it. Don’t make people give u the money after u made the art because what’s stopping them from just taking it?

You pay an artist more, or tip them greatly because you believe they deserve it. Not to pay them for future works made for you.

This still doesn't change the fact that artists are treated like trash, people think art is a distraction but no it takes hours to make a piece just to get paid $15. Please respect the art community I'm sick of getting paid 10-20 dollars for something I put my sweat and tears into.

I have a friend like "Thomas" that friend was a guy, he told first day in school that he really need 2 dollars or 100 pesos (php) I gave him the money and go on w my day. The next day I told him I really need the money since I'm still young and I'm broke. Few months have passed, I always remind him from w the money. He never really told me anything after that. Well a few years have passed I really don't need the money at all. I could see him struggling with his life. But I can't care less. He is a very nice person but he doesn't care about things. Like that, he also apologize to me and I accepted it. But I can never give him my money ever again.
