Art Corgi is a site for artists to organize their commissions and sell their commissions in a safe and friendly environment.
They seem to be really interested in taking care of the artists that use the website, making sure they get paid and don’t get screwed over by customers who don’t pay or try and take advantage to artists.
They’re launch day is today! So make sure you guys check it out!

Actually, Please do not sign up for this site.
When it comes to the artist’s work in regards to copyright and liscensing: 

The copyright of all art you create and sell through ArtCorgi will remain with you. Your clients will be given a worldwide, fully-paid, royalty-free, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-commercial, perpetual license with the right to reproduce, distribute, transmit, create derivative works of, and publicly display their commissions for personal purposes.

What this means is that while you can keep the ‘original piece’ all other rights regarding the piece are not solely yours any more. 
The client gets to sell your work, print it on any merch they would like, reprint it, make as many copies, alter it. 
This is not a benefit for the artist, this is a benefit for the client only. This is a bad ‘contract’.
For example: 
A client could commission you to do a drawing a bitchin’ mermaid. So you do and get paid some where between 75-300$. Sounds great right? Maybe that for you equals in at like 10$ or more an hour! …. 
but here’s the kicker after you’ve agreed to it… 
The client who paid you 300$ for that mermaid, can take that picture, and sense they now own the liscense for the work, and you agreed, they can now while they can’t sell the liscense ( thats what nontransferable means) They can place it on shirts and sell it, for 15$, which adds up! they can do this any where in the world, and they can do whatever they want with your work and never have to even mention you again, let alone pay you a proper price when used like that. 
THe clients do not have to state what their uses for the art is going to be, but to put this into perspective.
Art that would go apparel (so say, for redistrubtuion) regardless of royalities, Runs at between 1,800-6,000$ (according to Pricing and Ehtical Guidelines handbook) and that’s not even getting into royalities or reselling copies of the work.  Here, they can print it on a apparel ( the client ) sell, it, and only have to pay you around 75 - 300$ 
and thats all they have to pay you. 
Now, I get that there is a difference between people intending to use the work for just personal use/rp use whatever, and people wanting to make a profit from not paying the artist a decent wage. 
That said, Please do not use this site. I can’t stop you, but it is a very bad idea and could up causing you to cut yourself off from making more than what is essentially chump change.
especially in a world were ripping the artist off is so commonplace its becoming increasingly hard to make a living as a professional free lance illustrator.

Bolded for emphasis.Non commercial means they can’t sell it. So yeah, they could print up tshirts or whatever. But then they’d have to give them away for free. I don’t see how that gets them any profit at all!

I really want to make a Spirit Wolf hat type thingy, it’s not like I don’t have the fabric but I also want to sleep at a reasonable hour because I think that’s why I dread waking up in the morning afternoon so fucking tired

If you want a cheap powerful sewing machine keep checking value village every so often! That’s where I got mine and it was $25 and it works great on fur!

Get an older looking one they’re generally more sturdy :D

Why we never declawed at the cat shelter I worked at.

Also, it can cause males to spray, sorta. Makes them more aggressive in other areas to make up for not having claws.

I may be in need of a haircut…

you should just braid all the fluff

Nooo braiding is my nemisis.

I’d offer to braid it for you, but then it would just end up in semi-fancy knots because I can’t actually braid.

Am I the only one who can actually braid then?(I told her I’d braid it all for her and she complained she’d look like a dwarf)
