Yes, you certainly can. I've always been iffy about payment for commissions though, so let me lay out the reasons. 
  1. PayPal is annoying. If something happens to the money you're expecting to receive, tough shit, because their customer service is terrible. Also, if done incorrectly, PayPal takes a percentage of it. 
  2. I have to be paid up front. I just do. I've been burned before in cases where I'll allow a friend to pay after the work is complete (but before I give them the piece) and they decide they've changed their mind. If I do the work, I get paid, and up front payment is the only way to really ensure that.
  3. It sometimes takes a lot of time to get something done correctly. Please, please, please have patience! Sometimes I just can't get my head in the right space to do a good job on a drawing, so I'll ask for a little more time to get it right. I am by no means a professional and my creativity and "flow" are hard to switch on whenever I want. Just remember: if these were easy things for me to do at will, I'd have written an entire book, made three Minecraft resource packs, and would have many other projects complete!
When commissioning me, there are some things that you can do in order to make sure I have my head in the right mindset when drawing your character.
  • Describe them as best you can to me. What do they do? What kind of personality do they have? Are there any mainstream characters from movies or games that they're similar to?
  • Check out my other art. Most of my character work is in the Severnim and Warcraft folders of my gallery, and I try to keep my Finished Work folder up to date with drawings. When you find stuff you like, make a list of it and send it to me. I'll refer to those drawings to try and better understand what kind of piece you're after.
  • If you'd like a particular style of coloring, find an example and send it my way. I'm willing to try anything and I'll give you a sample before working on the entire piece to make sure you're satisfied.
Halfway through the work, I always give a preview to see if any changes need to be made. 
  • DO: Specify which small details need to be added, expressions changed, or any other small changes that need to be made. Use my previous work as a preview for the finished work.
  • DO NOT: Ask for the entire thing to be redone, ask for a different character altogether (unless it's a matter of just adding some pointy ears or other small changes), insult my work, or demand that I work as fast as another artist. If there are any problems due to me being the one to do the work, then the solution is to commission someone else.

Stock and Lineart rules:

You are free to use things I post. If you use something for profit, you must speak with me to negotiate a price first. If you use something for no profit, go ahead and use it as long as you link the original in your comment and link your work in the original's comments.

I'm a former student currently figuring out just what the hell I want to be in school for. I'm a World of Warcraft player and roleplayer.

I do commissions! A dollar for a simple sketch, five for more complex, ten for inked, and fifteen for full color.

I run these sites:
Wildheart Fanfiction ( sites.google.com/site/wildhear… )
Silent Hill Directory ( sites.google.com/site/silenthi… )
I would love to make my own game, but I realize that's probably never going to happen. Maybe writing will work out instead. I like dogs and cats and have two cats. I live with my mum and have an older sister. My mother and father are divorced.

Current Residence: I keep my stalkers restricted to the internet.
deviantWEAR sizing preference: medium or large
Favourite style of art: objective. modern art is best as furniture. I'm not a big fan of "fine" art either.
Operating System: iMac
MP3 player of choice: iPod
Shell of choice: wat
Skin of choice: I prefer to keep it on my body
Personal Quote: "Hope for the best and prepare for the worst."
