Me: Yes, because there'll be no mix-ups or confusions later, and it's easy for me to keep track of your order this way and not get anything wrong. So please do your due diligence. Thank you! ☺

( Please attach references to your email by attaching them or inserting them into the text body of your email. References should give me an idea of what style you're looking for, be photos of the person or animal you want me to draw, etc. The more, the better! )
( This section is for you to tell me more about what you're looking for and to tell me about anything else that was not otherwise mentioned in the form items above. The above, after all, is not a full list of all the possible details of your order. Some items might not have even applied to you. This is your chance to tell me this commission is a birthday gift for a friend, or that you're looking for someone to drop by your family business and turn the side of the building into an abstract wall mural painting, or what have you. Maybe you want a scene of a bunch of people marching to the right and forming the word "MOVE FORWARD." Just an idea. )
