$10 Experimental Portrait Commissions!

That’s right! Only $10 USD!!!

Lately I’ve been experimenting with different styles to find something I like, and I thought I might open up some commissions while I do so! It’s a simple concept:

For $10, you get a color bust of your OC in whatever style I’m trying out at the time, but only I can decide the style.

Payment by PayPal only and art will be completed in a week-ish 🙂 This is a test run for me, so if it goes well, I may open up proper commissions later, but get this deal if you’re feeling adventurous!

Send an ask to @salesart​ if you’re interested!

Some fruits and vegetables native to this region are: parsnips, radishes, turnips, apples, blackcurrants, and raspberries.
