I've recently started doing commissioned illustrations again and something I've always felt was a good idea was providing a rough draft of the finished work to the client so they could right away let me know if changes needed to be made. However, it seems like a good percentage of the time "rough draft" is ignored in my message and I get back "this doesn't look detailed enough, can you add more shading to it?" which...of course I will. So now I'm rethinking even providing that unless I know the customer already and feel like we could have a good back and forth. To any artists that provide commissions, do you provide a rough draft or do you follow the request and description as best you can and hope for the best? My worry is that I'll deliver a finished product and they'll have a lot of revisions because they weren't able to give me input sooner. To any customers that buy commissions, do you prefer the chance to give input earlier in the process?
