As I have commissions currently, these will not be done soon. So I don't want anyone getting bent out of shape and overly excited about it. When and if I do select your betta, I will notify you first and for most before I start any work on it =) Once I message you that I'm ready to work on it, it shouldn't take me long - providing for real life interference, which usually isn't terrible. But it'll be a matter of when I can get things done. As you've seen, lots of people have posted, and the shop isn't even online yet xD So you have a while to wait. I simply wanted volunteers and suggested fish people would like seen done in advance instead of scrambling when I need to sell.
Sorry if this disappoints you or anyone else, but art takes a correct mood, and a lot of time. And currently I have a full-time job and come Feb 2nd will have 15 bettas/8tanks and a boyfriend do also take care of before I can dedicate to the art. Thus I really don't want people to get their hopes too high too soon.
I will definitely let you know when you can each get excited =)
