★ THE BACK ALLEY ★ [MID’S FREE ART, CLOSED]

  • 6TKe5Ut.png

    When you reach the farthest depths of the darkened alleyway, orange eyes stare back at yours through the gloom.




    Hey guys! Taking art requests is really motivating for me and helps me practice, plus I'd love to help you get some art of your characters! I mostly draw cats, but I'm open to giving most other creatures a try, so don't be afraid to ask if you want something unconventional drawn.

    Want to commission me? Message me on dA!

    I also have a PayPal tip jar here! Anything is greatly appreciated but also completely optional!! The practice I get from doing these is payment enough :)


    ★ ALL FINISHED REQUESTS CAN BE FOUND HERE!!



    *QUICK NOTE: most people ask for my usual style of character art so that's what the form is generally for. however! you can also request: pixel art (full-size characters or mini icons) or 32x32 badges/accolades for your clan or group (example here)


    FORM

    Character name:

    Character appearance + description: *try to include one picture reference, prefer point-form descriptions

    Headshot or fullbody?:

    Pose + expression:
    Transparent?:
    Border around character?:


    Music recommendation (optional):

    RULES

    • You can submit an order when I’m closed to quote for later, but only requests made when I’m open will be added to my list - so keep an eye out for when the name of this thread changes to “re-opening soon” if you’re looking to request!
    • One piece of art per slot only please!
    • If you want to make more than one request, wait for 10 slots to clear between your orders so different people all have a chance to get art <3
    • Don't claim my work as your own - please credit me with @/midsummer if my art is in your tags
    • Be accommodating! Since I’m doing these for free, fulfilling requests won’t always be my top priority. But if there will be delays I’ll try to keep people updated!
    • Thank you so much to everyone who has sent a request, it makes me super happy to draw for you!!
