i tend to like 11x17 or 17x11 at 300 dpi and i'll crop it to whatever size i feel suits it best

Don't do many commissions, and haven't done any in ages. I do have some free requests lined up though.

Regular Size: 300dpi and usually at least 10x10 inches, but usually at least 20 inches wide if I want to get them printed.
Commission Size: The same as Regular.
Free Requests: Vary. If I did them to try to improve something (in other words redraw it a million times until it's right) they're usually smaller and not very printable because I don't care to print them. 300dpi 4x5 inches. If I did them because I was bored and really liked the idea, I might make them bigger so I can print them.

whatever size that i have been doing
currently 4k x 5k
I draw with 300dpi or higher and draw on 1.5k pixels by 1.5k pixels or higher. It depends on what ideas I have for the image the commissioner wants ^^

Its not the canvas I worry about. Its the DPI. And I use 300 DPI for everything~

The same size I always draw my regular stuff. Unless otherwise requested. People buy commissions for reasons :B
