I have made such good friends here at Elfwood and I look forward to meeting and making many more new friends! BTW, I do commissions, but it is at my own discretion and depending on how big my workload is at the time of request and/or requests. I, also, do art trades, just so long as I can take my time and do it right by not rushing through an art piece. If you have any questions regarding art trades orcommissions, feel free to e-mail me!! MORE INFO: In case anyone was wondering, I have many inspirations and I learned a lot of my techniques from a close and dear friend of mine, Tori, who was a copyright artist. And for anyone who doesn't know what a copyright artist is, they draw in a certain artists' exact style. I have another good friend who also inspired me and my hunger for art...her name is Crystal Aura Wilson. I taught myself at the nice age of 12 to draw mirror images because I had been accused of tracing for far too long. But that is not the only style of art I do, either. I, also, look off of photos for poses and some freehand, too. Crystal Aura Wilson has been one of my best friends since I first started to draw in that style of art(mirror-image). My inspirational works are based off of some artists LISTED ABOVE...and many, many more!! I am sure many can recognize some of their stuff in my art. If you have any questions, just ask and I will try and answer as soon as I can!! Best Wishes and may everything you wish for in life be yours!!! ^-^
