An Artist opens a Commission Request which passes three stages:1) Ideas Collection
First two stages generally last for two days, the third stage generally lasts for three days.
Every registered member of Whentai may suggest only one idea for each of the artists while the Request is on the first stage named "Idea Collection". We provide our members with enough time (generally two days) to collect as many ideas as possible. All ideas are reviewed by an artist and the support team. Some of the ideas might be rejected by support team if they don't fit the rules, and some of them might be rejected by an artist if they are too complicated to create. There are some certain rules of what is prohibited in ideas, you'll see the announcement while adding the idea. Sometimes Artists write their additional requirements down in the comments section of the poll, read them thoroughly. If your idea was rejected you'd receive a message about it in your PM. Then you may re-think your idea and suggest it once again. If you idea was approved, you'd receive a message in PM about it.
After the first stage ends the "Votes Collection" stage comes. Generally it lasts for two days so as many Whentai members may participate in the Poll. Every member of Whentai might vote once for an idea in the Request completely free of charge. This was made in order to choose the best idea among others. The idea that gets the most part of the Votes in the Poll wins by the end of second stage. It will be created by the Artist.
The most popular Idea goes to the Artist after the second stage ends and he got a few days for creating the artpiece based on the winning Idea. Artist uploads the result within the period provided for creation (generally three days). Then you might enjoy the Commission made by an Artist based on your idea!
