Okay! So just so we all have this clear, art trades ARE NOT always open!!
I open up art trades around holidays, for example, valentines day, St. Patrick's Day, Halloween, Christmas, etc.! And I occasionally open them if I can't think of anything better to do or if I'm feeling generous :P
Anyways the way I do my art trades are very simple.
All you have to do is contact me saying you would like an art trade.
you can contact me by:
A) leaving a comment
B) sending a private message to me here on theOtaku, OR sending me a note on deviant art *Deviant Account: Okitaru369*
C) emailing me at FruitCupProductions@yahoo.com
THEN, once I confirm the art trade I usually have my half of the trade done within a week and will send you a message when it's complete.
And well... that's that.
As I've said before, please ask if you have any further questions and they will be answered.
