    Hi I'm marty and I'm a recovering art depressive. I think I've been drawing the same characters too much and hyper-focusing on small flaws while not feeling passionate about the things I draw. So I will try to branch out, to see if that makes a difference. There are some very strict rules however:

    Rules:
    • You give artistic freedom. I will disregard a lot of design decisions (maybe). This will not mean I will not respect your character's ginger hair or their racial coding, but if you show me a lot of art ref with long hair and I think short hair looks better, I will draw short hair. If you want only one specific view of your Character, this isn't for you.
    • I will only do busts right now. That may include some form of collar/upper body clothing, but can also be devoid of it. This will be priced in the ranges of 30 to 40 USD. I will not shade this excessively unless I think it looks good. I will only apply minimal shading as seen here, which means a basic cast shadow under the eyes, nose, lips, ears, hair, but no cheek or body shading.
    • Just because you sign up, does not mean you will be chosen. I think it's important for me to get out of my art depression by simply picking things I feel enthused about, rather than doing every single person who signs up. Just because I don't pick you, does not mean your OC is ugly or boring. It just means that with my flawed and limited personal perspective, it failed to motivate me.
    • You will pay on Paypal after completion. The price will be told to you after completion, however the price should be within 30-40 USD. You will additional pay for transaction fees on top of the total. Because Paypal has confusing fees (something like 3.49%+0.49 cents) I will simply put the transaction fees at 5%. This means it will never cost more than 42 USD.
    • You will not be sent progress shots. If you do not like what I have drawn, you can decline the piece in post. If you decline the piece in post, I will put it up for auction on MassiveCraft while offering to change some surface colors for the next buyer, and then they can have it by auction or purchase price buyout. No hard feelings.
    • Some busts have the option of being expanded to full bodies, maybe probably later. Every time I work on a bust, I always make a 3d reference model that I can re-use for future drawings. As such, completing a purchase like this is in a way an investment, but not a guarantee of return service. I retain all rights to cancel submissions even after I have started yadda yadda.
    Read all the rules? Cool. Still with it? Cool. Just write a reply to this thread with a link to your Character App. If your Character App does not have all Character Art on it, additionally link an Imgur Album with all Character Art on it. If you have 18+ refs, please crop them so I don't have to see unnecessary bits. In fact if you have art of your character with inflated breasts please crop those too. That's a super turn-off for wanting to draw them.
