This page is officially dead. I've decided to finally phase out DA entirely. You can find my art on Fur Affinity and Weasyl.


I don't do requests, I don't do the points (ripping off the artists) bullshit, either. I don't do free art of any kind. There's even a stamp directly under my "Newest Deviations" section which states the same thing.

I make a living off of doing PAID commissions for people. It's my job. It's my only income aside from lawn mowing and yard work in the Spring and Summer, and if you have looked out the window recently you will see that yard work season is nearly over until at least March. Free doesn't put gas in my car or pay my bills. In fact, I don't even charge a "commercial rate" for my art. If I did, people would hate me even more. Most artists online already massively undercharge for their work, especially in the anthro community. I had to figure out a way to create a happy medium of getting a fair price for my work while also not scaring the commissioners away, and even still it's tough because of the quality and time I put into my artwork. Sometimes I still make under minimum wage per hour for certain things.

If this makes me sound like an asshole, I really don't give a shit. I stopped giving a damn about what people thought of me after high school.

And this is exactly why I hardly ever come to this place anymore. People want everything for free over here. From teenyboppers to full grown adults running a "business".

That's a really nice looking character design, and I really appreciate you using proper credits for the body base.
