That said, I'm out of work due to breaking my arm in November and am waiting for short term disability to kick in. In the meantime, however: COMMISSIONS! ARE! OPEN!

Hi there! I set my eyes on quite a few of your wonderful bird art that I would gladly feature in my brand-new raptor group ArsRapax | DeviantArt

Can you pls submit them to our gallery! Ive collected and filtered it here in the favorites folder with your username:

Orphydian - Hobbyist, General Artist | DeviantArt

This thematic really fits you, shame that you haven't done more real birds of prey. I think it's your best. If you did but you haven't uploaded here on DeviantArt pls consider doing it since I'll probably feature that too 😁

Also, you are free to join us!

Happy Birthday, sorry about the clone trooper birthday cake, the fangirls hijacked it!
Feliz Cumpleaños... Dios te Bendiga Grande y Abundantemente...!!!

If all else fails, consider supporting this group as their building a new site:
