I always loved Bon-bon. Even before I knew about the Lyrabon ship. I always thought her her color scheme was so eye catching and it was amusing how she could never maintain the same voice. Although, I find it kinda sad how she's over shadowed by Lyra.
I don't do free art for random people unless they are my friends or I really want to/have the time to do so. I just don't have the time or energy to do that. At least if I get paid to do it I can use that money to buy food and pay my bills.
