Spiders are important predators. By one estimate, the spiders on one acre of woodland alone consume more than 80 pounds (36 kg) of insects a year. (Those insect populations would explode without the predators.)
Spiders employ an amazing array of techniques to capture prey.
They play tricks:
Some pirate spiders of the family Mimetidae fool their prey: other spiders. They vibrate the spiders’ webs the same way a struggling insect might. Then, when the host spiders come close, the pirates grab them.
Spiders of the genus Scytodes catch prey by ejecting a glue from their chelicerae (spider mouthparts that end in fangs and inject venom into prey). Once it hits, the gooey substance shrinks, trapping the prey in place.
They use a home field advantage:
Lynx spiders of the family Oxyopidae hunt on plants. They are agile, jumping from stem to stem, and have better vision than many other spiders.

So I need to get some money in for various reasons, but I still have to work a lot (albeit much fewer hours than I need, hahaha—) and so I figure I should focus on doing some (quicker) sketch commissions~!
Simply put, I’ll do semi-clean sketches for the prices above, with samples as shown above. All orders go via email. Payments are done via paypal. Prices are per character; additional characters cost $5 each, no matter size.
OCs (with reference)
Fanart (if the character is unfamiliar to me, I will ask for references)
Avatar art (for sites such as GaiaOnline)
Male & Females
Children (note though that my forte is with characters between age 15 and 25 (approximately))
Animals (once more, my forte is humans, but I can draw animals with reference with varying result)
Boy’s Love/Girl’s Love/Romance
Animal features on character (Wings, tails, ears, etc)
Armor/jewelry/weaponry/complicated clothing designs (might lead to extra charge, and references will be needed)
Mecha (armor and weapons are alright, but I am not comfortable nor very good at drawing robots)
old characters (that is, physically old-looking, as I am not good at drawing this)
Chibis (not a style I’m particularly good at)
Mature content (excessively gory or sexual)
I may also do palette commissions based on the 100 palette challenge. Give me a palette and character and I’ll do a headshot/half-body in that palette for $15. It may end up looking something like this.
Any questions? Throw them my way~! I’m hoping to be able to do five-ten of these at a time, so the slots are semi-limited of sorts???
