Art Trade/Commission information
Yes, I do art trades and commissions. Although I refuse to draw anything Homophobic, Racist, or insensitive to those with both Political and Religious Beliefs. (FYI, I'm a democratic liberal, but I respect all views so long as mine are Respected as well). If you're interested, feel free to hit me up in my comments or a private note.
Art Trades! Simple as pie. Draw something for my new group which can be found by clicking here horace-x-simmons.deviantart.co… and I will be willing to draw just about anything for ya- except anything Homophobic, Racist, or insensitive to those with both Political and Religious Beliefs, as stated before.
Commissions start at $20 per character, fully colored (digital only). Though I'm willing to do simple line art for a character for only $10. All commissions will be done through Paypal and I only accept USD currency. If I have difficulty drawing your character, I will refund you the money. If you want something a little more than just a character sketch, send me a private note and we can work something out.
I am an artist living in the Boston area (Well... at least the halfway point to Boston & Cape Cod). Some call it a hobby, I say it is my calling in life... well, aside from Animal Rescue and my job as a Wildlife Conservationist. Just know that I can be very opinionated, and I don't really care what people think of me. I'm me, and that's all I can really be. If you have any questions or concerns, or just want to hit me up for a conversation, feel free to do so. I promise, I don't bite... much... muahahahaha!
