Advice? -Sketchbook Commission

Ok so a post on a friends journal reminded me of the idea of sketchbook commissions. How exactly do these work? Do you really fill an entire sketchbook? Do these tend to be small sketchbooks, larger sketchbooks?

Also, do the sketches tend to be of a person's character or of whatever you choose to draw or a mix of both? Are the artists usually allowed to scan the sketches and upload them? How does this work?

Also, if I were to offer a sketchbook commission on furbid (not anytime in the near future mind you, I need to knock down some major commissions first, current list, I'm looking at you) would anyone be interested? I don't know if it would be worth my time, fun, a hellish experience or what? If I were to do it I'd probably find one of the smaller sketchbooks since I honestly don't see myself filling 120 pages of someone else's wishes, but something more reasonable, sure. Honestly while I don't mind drawing other people's characters I wouldn't mind some freedom to sketch whatever comes to mind. I tend to like sketch pages where people drew really weird things that you normally wouldn't see them upload. It makes me smile XD And honestly most of my personal sketchbooks are like that.

So, thoughts?
