Just a quick note to say that I am still alive, but that I will no longer be doing free requests in the new year. I have a lot more work than I used to, and I can't justify spending time making requests without getting something in return. At the same time, this shop is not as busy as it used to be, so I feel my services are perhaps no longer required in the same quantity.
I will still accept art trades in lieu of payment, so if you want to try an exchange do contact me and we can see if there's something workable. Otherwise, I'll be operating on a commission basis using deviantArt points. Whether or not this thread stays open is down to whether I can justify keeping it open, or indeed whether having a commission-only shop is allowed in the rules.
However, there is still one more week in which I'll be working for free, so if you do want a belated Christmas gift, there's still a little time!
Thank you all for your support over the years, and I hope you enjoyed your requests.
