First of all, this is magnificently done. The use of highlight and accent colors on the eyes is suberb and truly reflects the strong em...



A Perfect Summer Day by Aquiavel
A Perfect Summer Day
Whew, I'm so happy I finally finished this^^ Inspired by a lovely mini vacation my mom and I went on 2 weeks ago :3 The water was beautiful and there was a slushy stand (the orange one is passion fruit, the blue one is blue raspberry) We had a blast and is was so cool to relive it as I was coloring this :) I tried different fur shading styles too, and I think I finally found a methods I want to perfect (the one on the right) which is a mix of my fur clumps on the chest and more fur-strands like on the neck. 
Oh hey! This is the first legitimate piece (I think) with my mom's fursona Amyla! Huh, she's come quite far from this introduction->…
And it's a debut for floppy Aqui ears! (I really need to practice shading those ohmygod) 
This was a fun learning experience, I had a lot of fun and I feel like a learned some things^^ as always! critiques are welcome
I hope you guys like it! :'3
My mom is making me get a pedicure and everything tickles so bad I look like an idiot Dx
Pony Aqui by Aquiavel
Pony Aqui
I figured I'd try my hand at ponies again, I'm hoping to increase business that way since the fandom is so large (and I haven't gotten any orders in a while) 

I'm open for commissions! If you have a pony character or characters, and would like a button, badge, keychain or drawing of them, please note me or comment on here :3
thank you guys so much!
When you commission me, you are agreeing to these terms and conditions

      Rights of Use 
As the artist, I reserve the right the display commission pieces in my gallery on dA, fb, and other online portfolios. In all online publications, I will post the owner of the characters drawn (if owned by commissioner or a third party) with a link, if possible, to the original owner. I will not resell commission pieces as prints/designs etc unless I receive permission from the commissioner. If the commission wishes to repost, submit or display my work, then credit must be given to me on the submission. The commissioner is free to edit and use the piece(s) they ordered in any way (I just ask that you credit me if you recolor the lines digitally and the like)

      Things I Will Not Draw
-heavy fetish art
-inappropriate behaviors (please ask me and we can discuss what is deemed inappropriate)
*if you really want something similar to the above, I won't post it in my regular gallery, but I may post it to my stash 

       Payment Methods and Payment Plans
PayPal is my preferred method of payment, however, if you don't have an account, there are other ways to pay for a commission, they're listed here
-Amazon Gift Cards
-Cash mailed in cards
I WILL NOT accept personal checks, art in return (I do art trades sometimes, but if you approach me for a commission, don't back out and say you'll draw me stuff instead, that isn't fair)

      The Process
Once the commissioner and myself discuss/agree on a commission type and what the buyer wants as well as the final price, I will sketch out the piece and send it to the commissioner. This is the commissioner's chance to ask for revisions. Once the commissioner approves the line work, I will ask for the total payment. I will resume work on and finish the piece after I receive the payment in my PayPal account (or when the money/card is received via mail). I will post the finished product on dA (unless the buyer specifically asks otherwise), usually dA mentioning the buyer and the recipient if the commission is a gift for someone else 

If I take on a commission and something happens after the line work is approved, and I've received the money already, I will refund your money. I'm a pre-vet student, so sometimes things happen, I will try everything in my power to make sure things like this (dropping a commission) does not happen often, that's not fair to the buyers

I will never share your paypal, address, or other info with any other artist or party, your information is safe with me

       Deadlines and Turn-Around
I am a full time student majoring in pre-veterinary medicine, so once school starts my studies take priority. I will be very honest when discussing turn-around time with the particular commission type and order size. I don't want to make you guys wait long for art, I always do my best to be prompt. Queue length, school, order complexity etc affect my turn around time. If, and only if, the commission is a birthday/holiday gift for somebody else, I will allow the commissioner to set a deadline for me. This is the only time I allow this, I don't work well artistically under deadlines and I don't like to rush something someone is paying for.

I can always be contacted here through notes or an email I'll give to the commissioner. If I have multiple orders, I will post my queue with progress in a journal I'll update regularly

If anybody has any other questions or want clarification, please don't ever hesitate to ask me! I hope I don't sound mean here, I'm just trying to be clear and protect the parties involved :3

Hi guys! I just wanted to let you know that today is the last day of my button sale :)
But one button and get 25% off the second! I do pet portraits, pony characters, fursonas, original characters, and even kissing couple buttons! Just a reminder, my buttons are $6.25 each (before the discount) and there's a $5 shipping fee inside the US ^^
If you guys are interested please comment here, on my profile, through notes or whatever you are most comfortable with :) final paypal info exchange and address exchange will have to take place in notes though, for our protection ❤️
Thank you guys!
