My snails have been doing reasonably well. I now have a total of 40 or so Pomatia babes, which I am raising with as much care as you can imagine. I’ve decided to keep them all, including a new clutch that was just laid, and is about 30% bigger than the last (not the amount of eggs but the size of them, which is… eggsciting 🥁). I really adore them. I think my stress levels would be higher without these little animals.
When I clean their tanks, I really take my time, sometimes up to two hours, and do it very calmly and carefully. Afterwards I feel so satisfied and relaxed.
Here are some photos taken after recent cleanings.
With the exception of the newborn Poms, I keep all my snails together, from the Helix Pomatias to the Cornu Aspersum to the Otala Lactea and Bulimulus Guadalupensis. They seem quite happy and have finally begun to thrive.
It’s my second adopt auction! I start the bidding at $75 which is still under I would normally charge for a reference sheet of this level. Plus, you are getting full commercial rights to the character. So, at the very least, I want to recoup a reference sheet’s cost with this auction. This character isn’t meant to be male or female, that is up to you. I can add eyelashes if you want a more feminine look, but I will make no other changes.
With this adopt, you get a bonus, baby version of the reference sheet:

🦴🔥 YOU GET 🔥🦴
🔥 ALL RIGHTS to the character, including commercial rights. You can do whatever you want with the character, including changing up the design in any future art you make or get of the character, you can also sell it for more than you paid. It is completely yours. But you can never claim to have created the character. I remain the creator. 🔥 TWO reference sheets edited to your preference as per the explanation above. Nothing but the text and the addition of eyelashes if you want them will be edited. One reference sheet has a pacifier and diaper, and the other one doesn’t. 🔥 If you do the autobuy, you’ll also get the flat colored, artistic freedom icon.
IMPORTANT: You’ll be buying the rights to this character, however the reference sheet acts as any other commission of a character: I remain the copyright owner of this specific reference sheet image, and the image cannot be edited beyond the text edits I will do. If you post this specific reference sheet, you must always credit me, same as any regular commission. You do NOT need to credit me on any other art you commission of the character, UNLESS I made it, too.
Please be sure when you bid. If you retract your bid, you will be banned from future auctions.
