Who Am I?:
The short answer is, I don't really know. Hi, I'm Raptor, formerly known as Raptorfang or Twin Oaks Ranch if you're an oldie. I'm an anxious bi dude who likes listening to bad music, drawing strange pictures, creating what only I would consider "poetry," and occasionally writing various short works of fiction that feature some of my many characters, all of which usually include vague commentary about society and peculiar speculations about the meaning of life.
And in case you've ever wondered, it's Raptor as in the bird, not Raptor as in the dinosaur, though I guess they're related closely enough for either to work. I do realize that the '-fang' part is kind of contradictory to the former, but you'll have to ask the younger version of me who came up with the name originally about that.
status: OPEN (PM if interested)
rules: these will be discussed prior to order confirmation, but here they are anyway:
1) do not use my art in any sort of hateful or negative way
2) do not remove any of the credits present on the image
3) if revamping a design by me, credit me as the original designer on all future references [my credits will be on the image, so this should not be hard to do]
3) PM me before reselling/giving away so I can make note of who the new owner is
4) do not resell/give away offsite
5) do not resell/give away tags/sigs/custom character drawings on their own; they must only be resold/given away with the design depicted in them
6) do not repost my art to your DeviantArt or any art-sharing sites of a similar nature [Sta.sh is fine of course]
> custom designs
I'm currently only doing horse designs. I also already have a set selection of F2U bases that I use, so keep that in mind. Pricing starts at 100k for a simple custom and goes up from there depending on the complexity of your order. Before you start coming up with a design idea, please keep in mind that I will not do galaxy designs (they often require the use of stock images) or designs with "Native American" markings (I don't want to make anything that could be culturally offensive), am unable to do most add-ons due to the poor quality of my drawing tablet, and really suck at appaloosa patterns. We can discuss specifics via PM.

> character sketches
I occasionally offer up free character sketches on the forums, but if you want one when I'm not offering them up for free, then it'll cost 75k. They will almost certainly be busts, as I feel I am not good enough at fully-body art to charge people for it, and will be in my cartoony style. If you would like to suggest a certain pose/expression you of course may, but for the most part with these I kind of just draw what I see fit. These are 100% one-of-a-kind pieces, and the lines I draw will not be used again unless I happen to end up really liking them, in which case I will refund your payment as compensation for it no longer being a unique piece.

Talking just for the sake of talking makes me uncomfortable, so please do not PM me if your only goal is to chat. Additionally, please try to avoid carrying on a conversation for longer than necessary. I ask this of you not because I'm standoffish or rude or anything, but because often grow quite nervous with small talk and therefore would really appreciate it if things were kept short and businesslike. Thank you for understanding.

A Brief History of Twin Oaks Ranch:
Twin Oaks Ranch, or TOR, started out back in 2015 as a ranch with no specialty or purpose, one that took in horses of all breeds and disciplines, but eventually shifted to just a Thoroughbred racehorse housing and breeding facility. After a short hiatus in early 2016 where no progress was made, the ranch shifted focus again, downsizing significantly and adding a new objective to the agenda: color. Still a racehorse ranch, its horses now sported not just pretty coats, but rare coats. Over the next few years, more breeds were added, each bred mainly for color but with a small focus on stats pertaining to their respective disciplines as well. Today, though not very bustling at the moment, the farm is still clinging to life, having held that same agenda for quite some time with no plans to change course.
TLDR; Raptor has spent the last four years of his life trying to breed a smoky cream RbRb frame overo Thoroughbred without the use of any sort of coat-altering items - with no luck.
