F.A.Q time!

Since I have been asked some questions quite often (for my standards), I decided to make a


If anyone asks me any of these questions in the future, I'll link them here since I'm too lazy to answer the same questions again.

Q: Can you make a dress up of *insert series/character here*?
A: No.

Unless I have already planned/started making it, that is. It can take anything from a few days to months for me to make a dress up, so if I begin making a game, it's from a series I like enough to spend dozens of hours of my free time on. I'm not going to use my free time on making random request dress ups of series I don't even know just because a stranger would like to get one for free.

And yes, this includes suggestions and ideas as well, or any other word you use to wish/hope/wonder/whatever if I can/could/should do a dress up of a certain series/character for you for free. "Just saying/asking/wondering" is just as annoying.

And if I know and like the series it's pretty pointless to request anything; I don't need any help realising that I could enjoy drawing a subject that interests me.

More on this here if you're interested

Q: Hi! Your dress ups are amazing! Do you know that *insert series here* is very popular, and it would make a great dress up! I know many people who would like to play that, and I'm sure it would be a great addition to your gallery! And there aren't any dress ups on it around so you'd be just the perfect person to correct the situation! (etc.)
A: I can recognise a request when I see one....

Q: Hi! I must inform you of the unfortunate thing that there are no dress ups of *insert series here*, I've looked like everywhere but I can't find one! But since you make dress ups it'd be cool if you could make one etc.
A: I can recognise a request when I see one. Also, it is not my responsibility to cater to your fandom.

Q: Do you do dress up commissions?
A: If you're interested please note me. But I only accept real money via bank transfer (so no points or other nonexistant stuff, or Paypal since I don't have an account), and the price will be in proportion to the work it requires, which may be weeks.

Q: Can you add different poses/body of different age/yaoi or yuri option to your games?
A: This has been asked surprisingly often.
All the clothes have been drawn to fit the doll. If I alter the doll (the pose, age or gender), I need to alter all the clothes to fit the new doll. Considering my games tend to have a lot of items, it'd mean redrawing hundreds of clothes. So the answer is sorry no, I won't change the base doll.

Q: Can I post a character I made in your games?
A: Yes, if you put a link back or at least something resembling "I didn't draw this myself" in the artist's comments or wherever you post your pictures.

Q: Can I use anything in your gallery as base?
A: No, you can't. Please look somewhere else if you want a base.

Q: Can I alter the screen shot I took of your dress up game in a drawing program?
A: You can make minor alterations like changing the colours or adding some detail, but do not transform the outfit into something completely new. That'd be pretty much the same as using it as a base.

Q: Can I make a profit with screen shots from your games (like selling adobtables etc)?
A: No, you can't. I put a lot of effort to making the dress up and most likely didn't get any profit from it, I'd find it pretty unfair that someone else used it for profit when all they need to do is a few clicks. You can make adobtables, but they must be free.

Q: How do you make a dress up game?
A: First you need a Flash program.
Then you can either search for "Dress up tutorial" or check the one I made.

Q: What program do you use?
A: Adobe Flash CS3 Professional and Adobe Flash CS5 Professional for dress ups, Photoshop for other art.

Q: Where is Hinata!?
A: I don't like her so I left her out...

Q: How do I save the character I created with your dress ups?
Here's a site that instructs you. If it doesn't work there's nothing I can do.

If you post your creation anywhere, please link back by either copying the game's web address or writing something about : iconhapuriainen: without the space so you'll get my icon :iconhapuriainen: (these only work on Deviantart).

Q: Will you join *some art group*? Can you add your deviation to *some art group*?
A: Sorry, but at the moment I'm not planning to participate in any group activities. I like to keep my works in my own gallery.

I think that was all for the time being. I'll update this if needed.

If anyone is wondering. The dress ups are still able to be played even in 2023. I use them for references for Seth's outfits and used Flashpoint to run flash (flash23 works best for the file format the dress ups use which is swf)
