A badge is something people wear to conventions and stuff with their name/their character's name on it. They're card-shaped, which lends themselves well to large busts and waist-up portraits, so I call mid-sized waist-up character commissions badge commissions :b
Ah, I can kinda see what you mean - just the character reference I was given didn't have him with particularly defined/noticeable lats, plus his arms are mostly tight against his body, so I didn't really do anything for them. Thanks for the comment/critique!
Yeah, "Dark Cloud... if he were a wolf" is totally what I was thinking XD
