Not much. It's just a quick chibi drawing. ONE chibi drawing. No or some color (I tend to accent things a lot). Will be done in pencil or pen. Tell me if you want it shaded or not.
I often draw doodle chibi on looseleaf so if you dislike that, please tell me as well.


the-TomatoBoss's Profile Picture
Seren Ryu
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
Genderqueer artist, fan, and blogger ((I guess you can count part youtuber)).

Haha, I don't submit a lot of work because my creative thinking gets blocked really easily.
I don't think I'm that great of an artist ((or author as a matter of fact)), and even though I'm always discouraged by all the other great artists on deviantART, that only means that I have more room for improvement!!!

And of course, name shown is not my name; the pen name I use. You may refer to me as Mikhail, Seren, or whatever you want, really.

I'm not going to beg.
I just thought that having points might be nice because there's so many awesome authors and artists that I would really love to show appreciation for instead of giving my measly "this is amazing!"
I apologize because I am not able to draw as much as I used to even though I do check deviantART daily.

If you would like, I also opened commisions. PLEASE DON'T THROW A BUNCH AT ME. I NEED TIME. TIME IS PRECIOUS.

Just saying.
Thanks! Danke! Grazie! Gracias! спасибо! Takk! 谢谢! ありがとう! Merci! Thank you!
(Also, I know this is random, but you guys can always tell me if you want your language up there too)
