Hey! My name's Lexus, but frankly I prefer to go by Ausie, or Otter. Things I like include, reading, books, Sherrilyn Kenyon, puzzles, lasagna, all dogs, Hollywood Undead, Bones, horses, music, lava lamps, and drawings. I have the privilege of having the best friends ever.

On Adoptables I do holds but only for a few days. I don't like holding for weeks it makes me nervous and fidgety.
When buying art from me you pay up front. If for any reason I can't do your art, you will get a refund even if I have to get the funds.
Discounts only work: When I've stated, and if you are a friend. I'm actually hoping, to (in the future) have any commissions free of charge for my friends. Or maybe half off at all times for peeps.
When buying commissions/trading with me, know that I have a life outside of dA, and I do tend to take time to do art, especially if I don't click with your character.
When trading with me you MUST remember, that I DO NOT comment on your part until my part is finished and uploaded, I used to comment imeadietly after the other person uploaded it and I then got nervous, anxious and everything about finishing my part and ruined it because I rushed. So keep that in mind.
Why are your paypal prices more than your point prices?
Well that's easy. You see I've found that on dA it's kinda hard to get points, or at least a decent amount of points for newer deviants. Like on here 1000 points is really hard to get, but you can get $10 super easy by like, mowing someones lawn or something. So I've made it slightly more for paypal people for this reason.
Can you do gift art for me?
I'm sorry but no, I do gifts for people who I believe deserve more love and need gifts. I also do them for my beautiful friends.
Can I have a request?
No I open requests in a journal when I feel like it, so don't ask any other time.
Can I commission you?
Depends. My Icons will soon be open all the time. And I might do the same to others maybe. Other than that you have to look here to find my Art Status.
Can we do an art trade?
ahh Probably not, I always have a ton to do, especially around the holidays, so unless I ask you try not to ask me. But if you're like one of my idols(you should know who you are cause I've obsessed about your art) then omg ask me any time. Or my friends, for friends art trades are always open!
If I trade a character that has a piece of art by you, can the new owner use that art?
Yes actually, you bought the commission that means that whoever has the character gets the rights of the character i.e. the new owner gets all rights to the art from me.
What do you use to draw?
I use Paint Tool SAI and a mouse. I also use Gimp for animations.
Can I offer on your characters? o.O
Okay this is a controversial question for me, to tell you the truth I'm always open for offers on my characters, but please I beg you don't offer like nothing for them, for my Main characters I'd want like over $200 for and I hate having to turn people down, but most of them are my babes, I suggest waiting until I open a trade/sale journal and seeing if I have any open to offers. <3
Can I be your friend?
//sighs I'm sorry but if you have to ask no. I make friends on here by talking to people. and most of the time by making them a gift xD I am a person who strongly believes to make a friend you actually have to spend time talking to them. I adore EVERY one of my friends and wouldn't know what to do without them. If you want to be a friend talk to me get a conversation going and lets get to know each other and if that becomes friendship well then I love ya!
Can I draw you gift art?
If you want to I'd love that! My babies are my pride and joy and when I get gift art of them I am so happy, so if you want, please go straight ahead and it will most likely be featured on my page! Here are my charries: sta.sh/210arf83cas7 / toyhou.se/AusieOtterPie/charac…
How did your pixels get so good?
Well it's all practice. Seriously go into pixels and go into old icons, and go to the last page. Look there at those icons and then at my current ones. Another bit of advice: Don't butcher your style. I've had times where I've tried to make really small icons that are really good anatomically and god does it NOT work. Just do what your natural style wants you to.
Can you give me points?!
No. No. I'm sorry, but I use my points, sometimes I do randomly give points, like when I see someone who needs some and I have extra, but not often, work for your points and people will respect you more! <33
Would you critisize my work?
Hahaha I thank you for wanting someone like me to help but I don't really have the time!
Do you have a to do list and can I see it to make sure I'm on it?
Absolutely! I usually have one up though it isn't completely updated, if you think that I've forgotten you, Note me, and I'll let you know if I still have you down!
Are you done with my art yet? You haven't finished my art yet have you even started???
PLEASE. DO. NOT. DO. THIS. If you have art I owe you and it's been over 2 months THEN you can note me about it, but if it's been like a week or a little more and you ask me about it I'll drop your commission/trade or whatever to the BOTTOM of my to do list, and if you do it again I will keep your points and cancel your commission. Sorry but this is SUPER annoying.
Can you teach me to art?
Nah, I'm not that good anyway. Just practice <3
Why do you spoil your friends so much?
HAHAHAHAH Why? Because to tell you the truth they are some of the only things that make me smile when I'm down. I can get really depressed and if I see my friends they make me smile and laugh, and well they all have dirty minds like me so we can joke about stuff like that!
Can I be featured on your page?
Nope, I choose who is featured and it's usually only freakin phenomenal people who DON'T ASK, and deserve it!
Have any more questions? Feel free to comment asking me and I'll answer.
