Okay so mostly this is just for me to keep track of my art, and also for people who are considering to ask me for commissions. Feel free to comment and critique, though if you like, I appreciate your input.
Okay so I've done some really cringeworthy drawings in the past so I'm only going to put up the ones that I like.
My art mostly consists of character drawing. Sometimes landscapes, sometimes generic pieces. I will rarely draw a fully detailed BG behind character art. For commissions, it's characters only. The only time I add objects to a character drawing is if their pose requires it. For example, sitting. Obviously I'll draw a chair for them to sit in.

Commissions are free, but allow for a few days for me to finish.

If you'd like a commission, send me a private message.

I don't draw explicit scenes any more. I'm done with that stuff.

I do draw character compilations, where more than one character is present in the drawing. These take me considerably longer, though.

I have a wide range of art style for you to choose from. You can use my drawings here as references on my various drawing styles. If you want a commission, mention which of my drawings has the style you want, or leave it to my discretion. Up to you.

Types of drawings with one character: Facial profile, bust, full torso, full body, full body + facial, 'mood chart'

Drawings of 2+ characters: Facial profiles, busts, full torsos, full bodies, 'group photo'.

If you'd like a commission, just keep this in mind: The more detail you give me, the better it will turn out. If I make your drawing and you're not happy, it's probably because you didn't give me enough detail. So don't get mad at me, because it was all on you.

Keep a look out for artwork, I'll be updating this topic as I make more art. You might even find your commission advertised here.

Update 1.1: I also offer the uncolored lines of your drawings if you want a copy of them.
Also, I--like most artists--appreciate at least a mention when my art is used, but I don't require it. If you want to make me happy but don't want to mention me, you may also ask me to sign my art instead so that you don't have to say anything, and I still get my name spread around. Up to you, though.

Update 1.2: I know I said 'allow me a few days to finish', well, that may also end up getting extended to a few weeks, especially if I'm taking classes, and/or if I'm swamped with commissions. If you don't want to wait that long, check with me to see what my current schedule is like. I'm guaranteed to get back to you if you PM me, so don't be shy.

Update 1.3: In addition to signing my username 'Redthorn Anvil', I will also start signing my last name 'Holst' on commissions. [As a side note, Holst was the name of a fantastic composer for orchestra.]

Update 1.4: My school semester is starting, so I'm not accepting commissions as of now. For those of you who already have commissions on hold, I will still work on those as time allows.

Here are the first three examples of some stuff I can do for you. More examples on the way. Note that these are just for reference. The art style and portrait style do not determine each other, meaning, if you like #1's art style, it does not have to be a facial portrait. You can mix and match any style to any format. So when you order, you can say "I want a group photo of (characters) done in #3's style", for example.

#1 Facial

#2 Group Photo

#3 Mood Chart

@Redthorn Anvil You are really good, and I will never turn down character art. I need to get some stuff done, but I would love to dig up char refs and request something when I finish!

Thanks, and don't rush, I'm not going anywhere I promise XD
Also as a small update, you can also request the uncolored lines of your drawing from me if you want them. [I'll edit the main topic shortly.]

#9 Facial/Portrait

Note: Um, I really don't like to do commissions in this style, but if you absolutely must have it like this, I maybe might let you. Maybe. It won't hurt you to ask, anyway, but in case I say no, have a plan B alternate.

#10-Pencil Sketch/Semireal

I don't have access to a drawing pad/pc right now, so. I mean if you want a pencil sketch then feel free to ask for one, It's just not nearly as clean, obviously.

@shylarah To be honest, I actually like my pencil sketches better than my digital ones--they just look crappy to me on the pc because I'm too lazy to use a scanner. Also I never color my sketches.

@POOHEAD189 Ah, thanks--I like to keep a theme going, since I'm Redthorn 'Anvil' and all. Might as well have a Forge too, right?

First off, great art, man. Second off, would you like to collab on an RP? You can be the GM or co-GM. It would involve drawing a bestiary of races and beasts and stuff. You don't have to take up the offer. Just thought it'd intrigue you a bit.

@Spinosaurus Heyo--as a favor to me, try to tag me so I know you're talking to me and I can get back to you faster, yea? Anyway, I'd love to help you out, mate. I still have a few commissions I gotta finish up, but I can slip you a few artworks in-between jobs and the next semester is starting soon so I likely won't be able to crank out oodles of drawings for you all the time, but if you're cool with that, hit me up with a PM on the details! I'd love to give it a shot!

#12 Bust w/ 'cartoony paint' is what I'm calling this style for now
This was a request from a good friend of mine. [To everyone else waiting on me, I know, I know, I'm sorry.]
Also, this thing is bloody massive. Original size is 4000x3000 [rounded generously. Whatever the size a sheet of legal paper is in pixels. I recommend opening the drawing in a new tab to see the full size.]
As you might be able to tell, I have this thing for super thick lines.

Whoa, dude... this art is amazing. The fact that you're so generous as to just offer up your skills for people is mind-blowingly awesome. So, @Redthorn Anvil I'm wondering if you're still open for commissions? I have a couple characters I'd love to see in your style if you are.
