Pixel Commissions! [on hold]Pixel Commissions! [on hold]2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Commissions are currently: on hold
new commission journal coming soon, but feel free to ask about commissions ^^
Rules & guidelines (read before ordering!):
Do not pay until I have accepted your commission order. If paying in points, I will specify whether you should pay for commissions using the send points option or commission widget.
Do not rush me. Commissions can take a few hours to a few days to a week or so. I have things that take priority in my life before art. Please be understanding.
Yes, you are allowed to order multiple icons! Yes, I can make an icon of your male OC but female icons are my specialty.
After I'm done with your commission, if there's a minor change you'd like me to make, let me know and I'll be happy to fix it. However, do not ask me to change the whole thing.
Do not steal my art. Please do not copy, alter, trace, etc. my work. I've worked hard to make
