That’s right! I am doing commissions! Saving up for moving out and getting ready for the real world~

I take paypal, and would also discuss bank transfers by e-mail if you’re ok with that (the latter doesn’t take a percentage out of the transaction…), but we can discuss that over messages/notes! I have also taken cash and checks sent through the mail and can be open to that as well.

I will be taking first-come-first-serve, which means whoever makes the payment first will get me working on it. Whoever else wants one will have to wait until another opening comes up. Once I’m paid, I will get started as soon as I can. (I will keep this post updated and going around when it’s open again!)

NOTE: If it is a full body picture and over, I will send a preview of the pose before working farther for your approving before carrying on with the rest (or livestream the process and you can view it there, unless asked not to). AFTER THAT POINT IF YOU ARE NOT SATISFIED WITH THE FINISHED PRODUCT AND REQUEST FURTHER DRASTIC ADJUSTMENTS YOU WILL BE ASKED TO PAY EXTRA FOR THE EXTRA WORK.

The list of the prices is all under the cut and I hope all the specifics aren’t confusing.

I put up some samples to at least help give an idea for the pricing and possible range, but really I’m going off of the base on the list and some things are left up to estimates based on the time and effort it would take me after you describe specifics you would like, which is why it can vary.

If you have any look of preference in a request that isn’t listed here but you’ve seen me do before in my other art, feel free to ask! Just feel free to ask questions about any of it!~

Krista and Tatiana Hogan are craniopagus twins, meaning they’re connected at the head.

They share a structure that connects Krista’s thalamus to Tatiana’s. The thalamus is a double-lobed organ that plays important roles in processing sensory input and creating consciousness.

Since Krista’s and Tatiana’s thalami are connected, scientists and members of the Hogan family think the girls might view the world differently than the rest of us do.

For example, Dr. Cochrane believes the girls can see through each other’s eyes. He came to this conclusion after covering Krista’s eyes, placing electrodes on her head, and watched Krista’s brain respond after shining a light in Tatiana’s pupils.

Other times, one girl will be watching TV while the other is looking somewhere else. Suddenly, the twin not watching TV will start laughing at what’s happening onscreen.

Their “thalamic bridge” also affects their sense of taste. Krista is a ketchup fiend, but Tatiana hates the stuff. Once, Krista was eating ketchup, and Tatiana furiously tried to wipe it off her own tongue even though she wasn’t eating any ketchup herself.

Perhaps the strangest phenomenon of all is that the twins sometimes use the word “I” to describe both of themselves at once.

As of 2011, no one had run any conclusive tests on the girls and their odd condition. However, scientists who have observed their behavior and brain scans are flabbergasted and excited. While no one can say for sure at the moment, it really does seem Krista and Tatiana can share private thoughts and perceive what the other is sensing.

As someone who wants to study consciousness in the future, I can say this is one of the most extraordinary cases I have ever heard of.
