"Free Raffle": Win a free portrait!

In addition to my digital art, I need a couple traditional art samples to display in the shop for potential customers! So I'm going to have a "free raffle" with all of your guys to see who wins a portrait! (: (I will also be working on the sketch requests I had from a while back.)

1.) Just post here with the picture that you'd like drawn. I work best with photo references when drawing portraits; quality doesn't matter, as long as I can see any markings!

2.) In the end I will choose only 3! I will enter all of the names in the "Random Student Selector," which will randomly generate the "winners" after I list everyone.

3.) I will draw the portraits on a smaller canvas (they're easier and faster to complete than large ones) in graphite, colored pencil, or Prismacolor marker (or mixed media). They will be drawn on either 3x5" or 4x6" paper. Size is determined by the composition of the reference.

4.) These are completely free! The only "catch" is that I will be able to display them in my portfolio, as well as at the company shop, as commission samples. Per requested I can mail you the original, but not until I get a high-quality print made for my portfolio.

5.) I can draw anything, including horses, you'd like. I've done a few portraits of people, horses, and canines. But I'm more than willing to give anything a go. I have more experience drawing animals (equines, canines, and some feline; I haven't drawn a human in a while).

The "raffle" ends on February 5, when I will be using the generator to select the "winners." JustDressageIt already has a free portrait as a gift; there are 3 more slots available.

Have at it, you guys! (:

I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.

Awesome, Zim! Consider yourself added.

At the present moment I only have digital art samples; I have been on hiatus due to the lack of scanner access. But now I have it, and can continue doing traditional art and traditional commissions! (Insert giddy sound of your choice here.)

You can see samples of my digital art here.

Clam a llama down, calm a llama deep down in the ocean blue like a barnacle. Sitting in the tight place! Gotta love the Mighty Boosh!
