Note: As of this writing, I am headed down fairly dire straits in regards to my financial situation once this week is up. To put it bluntly, I'm going to be living in either a motel or a shelter once this week is over due to lack of other options, and if I'm not careful or I'm just plain unlucky, I'm going to be homeless soon after that. I don't like to ask for handouts, and I still don't see a reason to start, but if you've had any interest in buying some art from me at any point and have disposable money at your fingertips, now's the best time to ask for something. I'm only doing simple stuff like neck-up portraits and weapon drawings (because I really don't have time for anything else, and frankly, I need fast money), but if you're willing to provide the cash, I'll do what I can to give you the best images I can put out.
Terms & Conditions
Read this carefully. None of it is negotiable.
Please come to me with an idea already in mind. It doesn't have to be spectacular, but I need something to work with.
For headshots, a simple facial reference will suffice. For more complete character drawings, bring at least 2-3 reference images with you; one of the character you want drawn, one of the pose you want the character drawn in, one for specific clothing if applicable. (Read: If you want the character in a different outfit from the one they're wearing in whatever main reference you give me.) When asking for backgrounds and items to be included in the drawing, bring the appropriate references for those as well. Depending on the nature of the drawing, I may also ask for additional reference images beyond what you've already provided, so keep that in mind when you approach.
EDIT: Alternatively, an extremely detailed description of your character and their features will suffice for a reference, if you're capable of such. You'll still need to bring a reference for the pose though, unless you're fine with me just putting them in whatever pose I feel like.
Once I've started on the drawing, I will update you on my progress at my own discretion. The quality of my work is usually at its best when I've been left to my own devices, so please, do not message me for updates.
Edits are a time-consuming affair, especially after the initial sketch has been finished and drawn-over. Once I've had to edit a picture three times (after the sketching stage), any alterations beyond that will cost extra. Once I show you the initial sketch, make sure you are absolutely confident in how it looks before you approve it.
When it comes to characters, I only draw humanoid OCs. I will not draw pictures of furries, feral animals or canon characters (including faceclaims of such) to sell to anyone. No exceptions.
My only means of accepting money is through PayPal. The only currency I accept is USD($), but art trades can be negotiated if so desired.
The Golden Rule: Treat the artist the way you want the artist to treat you. Kindness and respect = We get along, I draw you something. Disrespect = No sale, I tell you to get out of my face. Should be a given.
Note: As I have said already, due to my current IRL situation and needing to complete multiple commissions fairly quickly, I am only capable of providing headshots and weapon drawings at the moment. I apologize for the inconvenience.
