Here's an initial template for potential Angel Pigeons and artists to use.  Please read and if you want to be an Angel Pigeon, contact and artist, work out the details of how much you'll be giving them and how many commissions (and what type) that will entail and ask them to post the details along with the text below.   Always feel free to tag this account.   This is a work in progress and will be updated as needed.  Check back for updated text.  I'll pin this post so it's always available.

----- last updated 9/15/2015

An Angel Pigeon has chosen to support this artist.  This means that The Angel Pigeon will pre-pay one or more commissions from this artist and they will do commissions for people of their choosing.  Angel Pigeon's purpose is to support artists and art fans by paying artists even if the Angel Pigeon doesn't have any specific art needs themselves.

There are some rules though:

For the artist:
* The artist will not reveal the identity of their Angel Pigeon.
* The artist will decide, based on the amount of money donated, how many commission slots are open.
* The artist gets to pick from those who request based on how clearly the person defines the art to be created and the artist's ability to draw what is requested. If an artist isn't good at what you request, they shouldn't be obligated to do it.

For those requesting art:
* Don't be a dick. If you are selected, you are getting something for free from an artist who is working hard to hone their craft.  If you are unappreciative or become difficult to work with, the artist has the right to cancel the commission.
* While the Angel Pigeon expects an artist to do their best to deliver the finished art in a timely fashion, as is professional and courteous, there will be no time limits put on completing the art.  Please be patient, most artists have lives, sometimes chaotic, that come first.

For those who want to be an Angel Pigeon
* Copy these rules to pass along to an artist of your chosing.
* Make sure the artist agrees to the rules.
* Be generous.
* Don't disclose your identity to anyone but the artist.  This isn't about self publicity.
* Pay the artist a proper rate. At minimum it should be their going rate, but if you think they undercut themselves, offer them a proper rate for their talent.
* Recommended: Either start with a dollar amount and let the artist determine how many commissions they will do for that price, or start with how many commissions the artist is able to do, in a relatively short time period, and base the amount on their commission rate times number of commissions.

And just like that, +Fluffy the Wonderwolf joins the ranks of the feathered friends!

If you're interested in some wonderful fluffy artwork, please let her know on her original post.

Thanks +Fluffy the Wonderwolf!  Can't wait!
I'm breaking my short lived absence because I have 2 Angel Pigeon commission slots open! An angel pigeon commission is when one person sponsors free art for another person. So, 2 people are going to get "free" art from me. :3

1 small traditional piece (full color, 1 character, no background)
1 digital portrait (full color, shaded, head and shoulders)

If you're interested, email me at wonderwolph@hotmail.com with information about your character and some reference pics.

For those we haven't met yet, let us introduce ourselves. We are Angel Pigeon. Most of what you'd want to know about us is on this profile or at http://angelpigeon.com/ but we're happy to answer any questions.

Mostly, we wanted to say Hi and let people know that we exist.  But also make sure people know that if you're a fan of art and artists and want to help support this project, ANYONE can be an Angel Pigeon.  All you need is a few bucks and a desire to help.

An Angel Pigeon's role is to provide funds and select an artist to be the beneficiary of those funds.  If you have a few bucks and no specific need for commissions but still want to help your favorite artist(s), drop us a line and we'll explain how it works.

In the meantime, check out previous Angel Pigeon artists on this profile and in the gallery on http://angelpigeon.com/
