Get Snakepitted!

5/13/2017 UPDATE! My computer is currently broken and I cannot use my scanner until it gets fixed, so please do not send any portrait requests right now. I will remove this message once I get going again. Thanks for understanding!

Hello friends! I will draw a Snakepit-style portrait of you for just ten bucks!
Here's how it works:

1. Send me an email (bensnakepit@gmail.com) that includes your name the way you'd like for it to appear in the caption and a nice, clear photo of your face. Just your face, please. Don't ask me to draw you riding a unicycle through a flaming hoop in the middle of the desert while a horde of demons drops political leaflets from a WWII bomber plane. Just keep it simple, because I dunno if you can tell, but I can't actually draw very good.
I'm happy to draw multiple people (you and your spouse, kids, etc) in the same panel, it will be $10 per person. Please be sure and give me the name for the caption of each person you want me to draw, and specify who is who!

2. Wait for me to reply with a confirmation email. That way you know I got it and your photo is clear enough and all that stuff.
Please DO NOT SEND PAYMENT UNTIL I HAVE CONFIRMED WITH YOU!!

3. Paypal $10 USD for EACH PERSON drawn to bensnakepit@gmail.com, then be patient and wait about a week. If you want me to draw you and your partner, that's two people so it will be $20. If you want me to draw your band, that's four people so it will be $40.I only really get time to draw stuff on the weekends, so if you send me something to draw on a Monday, I'll get to it that following Saturday. I promise I'll be prompt about it or your money back. If I send your drawing and you don't pay me within a week of getting it, I will be kinda pissed off at you.

4. In 7-10 days, I will email you back a high-resolution digital file (jpg, pdf, tiff, whatever you want) of your 3"x3" drawing. 
If you want me to mail you the original drawing, it will be $5 extra and you'll have to wait two weeks to get it in the mail (I'll still email you the digital file within one week) If you want me to send you the original PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR MAILING ADDRESS IN YOUR EMAIL.


Here are some examples of ones I've drawn (please note: if I've drawn you and you don't want your drawing posted here on my blog, just let me know and I'll take it down. Thanks!)
