    Hello TW, due to shoulder surgery and recent possible reinjury (fell while I was in a boat.. Redneck problems.), I may not be able to get my summer job this year when school lets out. However, as y'all know.. No money = No mods.. and No mods = No fun haha. Luckily, I have been blessed with an ability to draw portraits, wildlife, etc. pretty well I believe. So, after speaking with tcBob, I've decided to experiment and offer custom drawings and portraits in order to fund a few mods. Here are a few of my previous works, though I get better with every portrait.
    Jason Aldean:

    Teddy Roosevelt:

    Mallard Drake:

    The Man in Black, The Most Famous Middle Finger in Showbiz, Johnny Cash:

    Those are just a few, and there are a few more in my gallery if anyone wants to check them out. As you can see, they're good quality portraits. (There's a reason I have many repeat customers.) I can tell you from experience that they make great meaningful gifts. Prices are unclear as of now, though usually 8x10 portraits usually run $30 a head. However, it varies with size, number of subjects, etc. PM me if you have any questions, and I'll get back as soon as I can. School is still going on, so I can only take limited orders at a time to ensure that each customer gets their order in a timely manner. So for the first order, I'll take the first 3 orders, and then go from there. So if you're interested in portraits, wildlife, trucks, or just about anything else, post on here or shoot me a PM. I'd rather discuss prices and especially shipping info over PM though.
    Thank you for your time and consideration, Matthew.

    Thanks so much. Normal size (8x10) runs about 30 dollars a head if its portraits, and other things like animals, I'd just have to see what it is. I have to pick up some bigger paper if there's interest in bigger sizes, so that would be just a little bit more. What do you have in mind?

    Wow my post got cut off. In the first post I meant to include that pricing would be about 30 dollars a head regular sizing, and it would go up just a tad with size. Plus you pay shipping. However, shipping a structured envelope with a drawing inside generally isn't much at all. I have a lot of people that use these as gifts for Mother's Day/fathers day/Christmas/etc. they make pretty meaningful gifts.

    Holy crap.

    Seeing people able to draw things like this makes me convinced somethin' ain't right in my brain.

    That's sick

    Haha Madjik you should be able to relate to this particular talent. I've been drawing since I was little and my parents said even then if I didn't think it was perfect I would scrap it and throw it out. Little OCD maybe? But thank you haha

    Thanks, it's been a fun hobby. I've really enjoyed it.

    Thanks man! It all depends really.. Some take me a couple of hours.. Some take me a couple of nights. And a lot of times it takes me a few times to get it just right because I'm kind of a perfectionist about it and if something's wrong it just drives me crazy until I throw it out haha. It can be frustrating and nerve wracking at times. But for the most part I guess generally speaking.. 2 or 3 hours of solid work.
