All files- Rough previews as well as the finished animation (uncompressed avi for animation commissions or a gif image compressed according to Devi-art's filesize limits for icons) are previewed and sent through DeviantART's feature. Other methosd such as a .zip archive through Mediafire or another filesharing site or e-mail will be used if fails or if requested. Files inside a .zip archive need to be extracted first before they can be viewed properly.

Final renders/ finished individual frames can be requested in any image format (Transparent icons cannor be sent as jpg).

.zip archives can be opened and files can be extracted in something like winzip, winrar or 7-zip, all of which are free to dowload and use.
.avi files can be played in almost all video players, like Windows Media Player and Quicktime.
.gif files can be previewed by openning them using an internet browser like Internet Explorer, Safari or Firefox, etc.
.png files can be viewed in any photo/image viewer or editor.

Once you have paid for and recieved your commission, you may request the files again or request any other associated files at any time as many times as you need to for no extra charge.

Commission status is displayed on my devi-ART Profile page darkmanethewerewolf.deviantart… in a custom box about halfway down the page on the left. I will always inform you first if any major complications come up but do note me if you have a query about your commission at any time.

Always note me if you have any questions or concerns.

For examples of my animations, check my Gallery's animations folder darkmanethewerewolf.deviantart… or the commissions folder darkmanethewerewolf.deviantart…

I really want to icon commission you but everytime I check they're closed. Do you know when you'll open again, and is there a way I can have a reserved spot or is it always first come first served? 
DarkmaneTheWerewolf Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2014  Professional General Artist
I don't have a timeframe, sorry, but I do have a list of ongoing commissions on my profile page which I want to clear first before I reopen again. I intend to start afresh and not let myself get swamped with commissions like I have in this instance, so I won't be doing reserved spots anymore, it'll likely be first come, first served.

Oh, ok. D:
Tourists Featured By Owner May 18, 2014  Student General Artist
when do you think these will be back open? I'm DYING for an icon :D
DarkmaneTheWerewolf Featured By Owner May 19, 2014  Professional General Artist
I've unfortunately let my list get much too long >< I don't expect to clear it for at least half a year. Sorry.

I keep my commissions status on my profile page to give people an idea of how things are going.
Tourists Featured By Owner May 19, 2014  Student General Artist

May I note you for a spot? :3
DarkmaneTheWerewolf Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2014  Professional General Artist
Sure =) Just be aware that its going to be a very long wait (Somewhere around a few months at the moment). I have a list going on my profile page to give you an idea, should you want a slot, I will add you to it. Just note me whenever you're ready.

Ehm how do I get and how do I give points?
DarkmaneTheWerewolf Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2014  Professional General Artist
You have to buy points with real money. At the top of all pages on DeviART, two tas to the right of your username is a Shop tab, from the drop down lost, theres a Points option with your balance next to it. Click the points or your balance and you'll get a page where you can buy the points and the option to give them too. If someone is doing commissions, you shoud use their commissions widget to ask for a commission and pay at the same time.
