Customr Service is Key!!!.
So I told the artist what i wanted and we made an appointment. When I showed up he said he forgot I even wanted it and didnt do anything to prepare. Regardless, I went to another guy in the shop, and he booked me for noon on a tuesday. I sent him an email describing exactly what I wanted and 6 reference pics he could print out or whatever to do the drawing. I got a new job ten days before the appointment so I wrote him an email and tried to reschedule for the weekend. He told me he couldn't reschedule by computer, I had to call him. So I called, and he couldn't fit me in for another two weeks. I booked my new appointment. When I came for the new appointment he said he didnt think I was going to show and never drew up my pic.
