Our family adopted a really sweet dog named Ciro on Friday. :) He's a pit bull/labrador mutt and he is 9 years old. He was at our local humane society and I fell in love with him immediately. He's a real sweetheart. He loves to play, his favorite game is fetch and tug. He's already demolished his first chew toy. XD He's really mellow and just wanted to be with you. He's a super cute goof ball and loves people and dogs. He's had some trouble with the cats, he chases them if they move. :< So we're working on slow introductions. He's doing better with that. Our big, burly cat named Ginger is pretty freaked out, but our tiny little cat is much more curious about this new dog. He's adjusting slowly, he still hasn't eaten which is worrisome but my parents told me he will eat soon, I hope, or we'll have to take him to the vet to get him checked out for health issues. But we're all really happy to bring home a new member of our family!! Older dogs are underestimated, no one wants them. But our family likes taking in older dogs. (Throughout my whole life I've never had a 'young dog', I've always cared for old dogs) But old dogs are super sweet, easy dogs who just want love and a nice walk and a little playtime before relaxing with you. Old dogs need good loving homes too, he's been at the shelter for 5 years and needs a good home where he's loved for the rest of his life. Besides, we have good luck with old dogs, we could keep him earthy and active so that he'll last until 15-17 years old. So 6-8 years! (that's the lifespan of some large dog breeds) Don't discount old dogs, they need loving homes too. They also make great 'first dogs' since they're so mellow. ;)

:bulletblack: Point prices are based on the DeviantART point system. 80 points = 1$. Prices are negotiable depending on complexity and addition of characters. The more complex the image, the higher the cost. I will not lower my prices simply upon request however, my work is worth more than a dollar.
:bulletpurple: IMPORTANT: there is a difference between wanting a drawing of an invented creature and a creature design reference sheet. A creature design reference sheet is a scientific illustration, a painting with basic information on the creatures diet, habitat, and behavior and well as a scale reference with an added more detailed description of the creature in the images description. There is typically no background, and it is a profile image.
A creature design reference sheet is different from you original character who happens to be a fantasy creature. The creature design reference sheet is an image and description of what the SPECIES AS A WHOLE look and behave like, not of an individual. And no jewelry, trinkets, scars or characteristics of an individual unless it's part of the creatures anatomy.
The creature design reference sheet is meant to be REALISTIC. As in, it should look plausible, as though the creature could exist in reality. There are modifications of course, but the goal is for me to bring to life a plausible looking animal.
