I've been doing an auction or two on Gaia in order to practice single-character illustrations that are also available for commission, so I actually have examples when I post up information. It's really enjoyable to paint characters that are not my own, and I'd like to be able to do more of it in the future.
Commissions like this will be $45 per character until Thanksgiving. With or without a simple background.
As a side note, I need to get better at posting on Deviantart, I'm just finding it harder and harder to remain active here. I usually can be found on Tumblr or Furaffinity more often than here, and can link to those sites if anyone is interested.
