Hello Deviants! I have recently been trying to save up for a new laptop and have actually managed to save up quite a bit towards it (around $2,500), but would like to speed up the process a bit more and try to get it saved up for as soon as possible so I can have space on my old computer to work on more art and get even better at my work and such. Looking to get up to earning about $1,500 or so. So! That being said, I've decided to open up slots for commissions similar to the work I do on here! I will be open for both OC and characters you may like! They can be full body or half body portraits like my character memes, of which I'm willing to

Hello, all my followers! Came up with a bit of an issue involving my computer running out of extra space, space which I definitely need if I want to continue making art and character memes and what not. I've had this computer for almost eight years and its about time I got a new one. So, I've had a thought! I am opening up commissions! For five dollars a character, I will draw any character of your alls choosing! I can do 1, 10, or 25 character memes for you featuring your favorite characters from anywhere you wish! Book characters, video game characters, movie/television characters, comic book characters, Internet characters, its your choice
