I'm Lawrence, aka Conter! I'm a digital artist based in Texas and have been drawing for over a decade. When it comes to art, my main interests are in character/creature designs and illustrations that focus on those beings themselves. Branching off that, I have an affinity for armor, mechanical limbs, and making weird [sometimes scary] phallic designs attached to the beasts I draw. Not much else to say about me in all honesty! I generally keep to myself most of the time and don't like talk a lot.

DO YOU TAKE REQUESTS?
HOW CAN I COMMISSION YOU?
Check out prices, examples, and form links on my Commission page!
If anything in there peeks your interest, be sure to have a look at my Terms of Service next before sending in an inquiry.
HOW OFTEN ARE YOU OPEN?
That greatly depends on my workload and schedule. I try and open at least once a month during the beginning of the year. Then I'll begin opening up on occasion as I become free.
HOW WILL I KNOW WHEN YOU'RE OPEN?
For the public, Furaffinity is the best place to keep updated. I'll sometimes make a post on Twitter. Other than that, patrons and users on my discord server get first dibs.
CAN I JOIN YOUR DISCORD?
Sure! You can use this link here.
I SENT A COMMISSION INQUIRY BUT I'M NOT SURE YOU GOT IT.
Shoot me a message and I'll check for ya!
IF I DON'T GET PICKED CAN I SEND THE SAME INQUIRY NEXT TIME?
You're more than welcome to! Please be aware if it was rejected for not complying with my TOS it will not bet accepted the next time.
HOW DO I GET A FULL ILLUSTRATION FROM YOU?
I plan to try opening these up to people in 2021. However, I will be very picky about who I select, because these are such a big time sink and need a lot more back and forth between me and the client. The character(s) and ideas will need to resonate with me as well, so selection will be more strict.
These types of commissions also tend to burn me out quickly, so they won't be open too often.
CAN I GET A COMMISSION WITH ONE OF YOUR CHARACTERS?
Sure! Just keep in mind that it'll count towards an additional character. And, depending on the character you're requesting, I may deny some themes, kinks, and character pairings. I'm the most picky with my human character.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON'T LIKE THE COMMISSION I GOT?
Not much I can say other than I'm sorry. I encourage people to speak up as soon as they can if the image is not going the way you envisioned it. Work in Progress shots are given to ensure I'm going in a direction you enjoy and have a chance to request edits (though this is not always available). If there are certain aspects and/or character details you are particular about, I implore you to let me know from the get go so I can keep it in mind!
That being said, I am not obligated to supply a refund if you do not like the final piece.
DO YOU ACCEPT TIPS?
Certainly! I have a Ko-Fi for general tips and, if you wanna get a little something in return, I have a Patreon.
This makes sure my bills get paid. These also tend to create more high quality and interesting images to put in my galleries. While I also select my commissions based on what appeals to me the most, making sure I'm not overloading myself means I can devote more time to each of my clients and their commission.
This also ensures I have extra time during the month for hand rest, personal art, and avoid burnout.
I have more fun and I get a chance to experiment with these. I tend to work a lot better when there is leniency and wiggle room with what I can do. That and I tend to dive into these images easier than those where I must continually stop my work to check over the outline.
Despite liking to draw full on NSFW , I actually enjoy mature themed works far more.
Or, more specifically, those who have been pleasant or easy to work with. I enjoy who people make my job easier.
Short, well structured, and/or easy to understand briefs and paragraph layouts make my dyslexic eyes happy and ensures everything is easy for me to follow. The easier it is to find and read what I need the faster I can get back to work without having to check up and read again.
ACCURATE AND FULL REF SHEET:
The less I gotta flip between images to make sure everything looks right the better. Doesn't mean I'm not okay with extra images, especially for perspectives and parts the ref may not have, it just makes things easier!
LESS OFFERED FAVORITES:
There is a variety of things I like but haven't gotten the chance to draw much of, or at all, for whatever reason. Coming to me with these things is a good way to nudge me to pick it out among the batch.
Nothing is more frustrating than a client who does not know what they want, changes things halfway, or continuously adds to my workload while I am trying to work. This scatters key details and jumbles them up with other, no longer accurate, info, making my job harder than it needs to be. I charge based on what was in the initial commission inquiry, so when things suddenly change it can mean not only the price is now inaccurate, but my workload too, and this adds unneeded time and stress to the commission.
This is especially true for artistic freedom pieces. When a client grants me artistic freedom, only to change their mind halfway and control the direction of the image; going as far as to add kinks, themes, items, and/or fetishes that were never discussed or accepted in the original commission inquiry, ensures I no longer wish to work with them again.
CONVERSATION ISN'T FOCUSED ON WORK:
If it takes a particularly long amount of time and effort to pry an idea or character out of a client because they are more focused on making small talk, jokes, sexual comments, prying into my personal life, or talking about characters/topics not related to the commission; then I'm not really inclined to even accept their commission when we finally reach the end.
DIFFICULT TO WORK WITH:
Pretty much piggy backing off the two above but with general things. If it was more difficult to talk to you, understand you/your info, make your edits, or get things going than it was to draw your piece, I'm not going to feel particularly motivated to pick out your form again.
NOT PROVIDING INFO:
Submissions where I am asked to reach out to get information for the commission make me less likely to select them. I don't wanna dig through multiple notes to find everything I need, nor do I want to be forced to get gather it all myself just to find out it's a commission I wouldn't have selected anyways.
I like all the information in one place, that's why I use google forms.
BEING OVERLY SEXUAL:
Communication between us must be business only, I am not comfortable with overly sexual conversations, especially while I'm working on your commission.
NOT READING MY TOS:
A TOS is there to show the client the rules and what to expect from the artist they wish to work with. Yes, they are large and hefty on the reading in some cases, but they are important to go through.
I try and answer as many questions I can on it [will/wont draw, turnaround, edits, etc] and make sure it's structured in a way that makes it easier to find what you are looking for. This allows an opening for outliers whose characters, theme, and/or idea may toe the line and want to ask where a more solid line is on a personal level.
If a client makes it clear they didn't read my TOS, why would I want to work with them?
