Worth it to make a commission progress LJ, so that people can see progress on their pieces?

If I ordered a commission from someone, I'd personally think it'd be more fun if I didn't get to see it until it was completed. :>
But I agree. I think they should ask/you should charge if they want to see it progress.

Charge a little extra if they want a progress report, more work = more money

I'd recommend against it. If people need to see some sort of record of their progress, I'd think that denoting what stage their commission is in (sketching, inking, etc.) should be enough.

I try to show my clients how their work looks after each important stage is finished and get input then.

It might be more work than you need, considering you already have an LJ and such. Maybe use the Google list sort of thing to link to any progress shots you might have?
don't know if you could do that, but maybe it'd be more convenient? xD

i just have this: [link]=pbAipc-6xcHyjNHbsWNf8Qg

if i need to have a sketch reviewed, i'll send it to them, or if i've been taking longer than i should, i'll show more WIPs to let them know it's still being worked on.

i wouldn't mind uploading more WIPs, but there's a bunch of junk in front of my scanner that can't be moved until the house gets sorted out :\

stupid link. it's just a google doc that keeps track of payment, shipping and progress (written as percentages). i'm sure you've seen a billion other artists do the same thing.

Naah... LJ would probably be too much, but I'd suggest posting a few WIPs maybe? :D

Pretty much, but I'm trying to figure out a decent way to link image progress in there somewhere too.
