Prices will most likely change the more I feel like drawing. uwu These commissions will most likely only be open during holidays and weekends.
Please send me a reference sheet of your character and explain what you would like, if you don't send these then your commission will most likely be declined.
If you want to have two or more characters, then say so and if your commission is accepted send an extra 20:points:.
If a background is not described then it'll most likely be a simple one.
