Exploding Bear

Professor Sir Duke Emperor Bearington III, esq.
Hey everyone, I'm not one for long introductions, so I'll just cut to the chase.

I'm looking for an artist willing to draw a sketch/reference of my black bear fursona. Since this will be my first ever commission, I have no visual references but will be more than happy to provide a detailed textual reference for what I'm looking for.

A little bit of key info:
  • I'm just looking for a simple sketch/colored reference for my black bear fursona, preferably an SFW full body with more or less realistic proportions. I can provide a textual reference, or draw up a laughably bad drawing in MS Paint to better illustrate proportions and stuff
  • I'm looking to spend anything up to about $40 USD, but will be willing to go higher if what I'm asking seems a bit unrealistic to you
  • I don't really have a strict time limit for the finished product, but if it could be completed within a few weeks to a month, that would be awesome
  • Since I would be using this piece as a reference for future commissions and such, I would enjoy being able to observe the in-progress piece before it's finished, if only to make sure we're on the same page
If you're interested or have any questions, please either reply to this thread, PM me, or contact me on FA. Thanks so much for your time!

Hey! Id love to help you! I'm used to first time fursona that only a textual description, I send lots of wips so you're sure to get what you want and I usually get a ref done within less than a week! My refs start at 40$ cad for a back abd a front view.

Also if that can help I saw a black bear from less than 3 feets away x))

Hey there! I would happily draw your fursona for a base price of USD $30, and for $5 more, I could stream the process for you on my Twitch channel any weekday or weekend after Nov 12 (I have an outdoor art festival I need to prepare for, so the week before the 12th is going to be a little hectic!).

You can check out my Twitch here and browse my gallery here. I also have an in-forum market thread here, where you can view my TOS and other prices.

I've drawn many fursonas based on rudimentary or vague details and have yet to dissatisfy a customer, so I very much look forward to the challenge of drawing yours!

If you're still looking, I'd love to design your character! I've worked on several first-time designs and concepts based on written descriptions only, and I've also drawn bears (here's a recent bear ref I've done: www.furaffinity.net: Zeke Reference Sheet (Commission) by valery91thunder ).
I do digitally flacoloured reference sheets for 40$. Price includes three fullbody views (generally front/side/back, but they can be changed!) up to 5 closeups for details/accessories OR expression headshots, a chibi front/back view and a colour palette. My Weasyl gallery is dedicated to completed ref commissions: ValyceNegative's submissions — Weasyl
I do SFW art only and I'm used to draw any kind of species/breed/hybrid/humanoid character! Payment is via Paypal only, and I provide sketch and coloured WIPs for approval. If interested, you can either note me on FA: Userpage of valery91thunder -- Fur Affinity [dot] net or email me at alkalinesparks [at] hotmail [dot] it!
