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


F.A.Q.

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?
A:
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.

Uh, no, the point is to dress the characters. You have to go elsewhere if you're interested in underwear.

but if the point is to dress them , then why not allow the underwear to be changed

Because the purpose is to dress them so it would be pointless to include an option that would require them to be undressed.

alright , but why not add a option where you can switch the kind of underwear instead of removing the underwear completely

It absolutely wouldn't because including content where the doll is required to be unclothed would go completely against the idea that the point is to choose clothes for it.

It should have been obvious from my first response that I have no intention of creating this option so at this point I assume you keep insisting just for the sake of being annoying, and the fact that you demand me to include an underwear option for you is pretty disturbing in general. If you don't drop this topic I'm just going to block you. If you want to focus on underwear you'll have to go somewhere else.

This is probably going to be the stupidest question in the world, but how do you pronounce your name? I want to talk about your games with friends and my family, but I want to be accurate!

Either way it's cute!

This is actually a fairly common question and should probably be in the F.A.Q, but I haven't updated it in ages so the answer can only be found hidden in my website (which I haven't updated in ages either):

If you're familiar with Japanese, it's ハプリアイネン. If not, uh...

"Ha" (almost) as in hut
"pu" as in put
"ri" as in riddle (or not, but I can't think of a better example)
"ai" as eye
"nen", rhymes with ten
Something like that.

I have a question. If someone commissions a game, do you post it for anyone to use?
(I don't know if it's possible to make a game that only certain people can use or not...)

I post the stuff I create on deviantArt because once in a blue moon someone takes their time to write an interesting and insightful comment, which is very rewarding. Keeping the finished work private can be discussed though it'll show in the price.

I have a few questions;

1. Do you ever trace to get results you want? When you do some series (Such as Madoka Magica in your dump) do you trace? It looks super like the original.

2. You seem sorta aggressive when you reply to people, is it just because you think they're being stupid, or did you even mean to sound like that? (Not trying to be rude or anything ^^;)

3. (Goes kinda in hand with 2) Do you enjoy making dress ups or is there another reason you do it?

If a preloader of a dress up has the logo of the series it is probably traced from the official art and I can't remember any more if any of the longer ponytails in the character creator template I use were traced or not but no in general I don't trace. 

A lot of comments I get are people asking for free art, or spamming the comments without even trying to give feedback on the work itself or stuff like that; it doesn't really motivate nice replies either. 

And sure I enjoy making dress ups, obviously otherwise I wouldn't make them (apart from the ones I was paid for I suppose) though I don't really know which part it is that I like. Years ago I wrote a lengthy ramble about making dress ups on my website and the last paragraph is about this.

What if we design a character from a game for a different series? Is that okay? My example is using your Witch Guardian Maker v2 to design a character for a series like Naruto. I know you have a Naruto Creator and I like using it to design new characters but I think the Witch Guardian v2 is more optional in designing new characters. I just wanted to ask. I read it entirely so I won't make requests or anything like that. I enjoy the character creators you make.

Yaoi in Japan means “Boy’s Love” (I think) And Yuri is basically the same thing only it’s with girls.

If you mean first creating something in my dress up/character creator and using that as an idea or reference and drawing the character yourself, it's ok.

I don't really plan them like that, I just get an inspiration at random times and start a work, and then it's up to luck if I manage to finish it before I lose interest or get a new idea that dethrones the old one.

I got a question, I don't think it's on this. If itis, sorry.

Can we redraw the character dressed up?  Not like as a base or anything. For example: This is your style    sta.sh/0yuumwur74u  I completely draw it in my style. I will credit you.

That's ok. And if you use my works for inspiration for character designs and draw everything yourself (including the pose, no copying/tracing) you don't need to credit me if you don't want, though it's always appreciated.

My name is Mamalovesya and I am in need of some help. I'm working on a flash game project as we speak and I was wondering if I can ask, what code did you use for a save button? I understand if you are busy so please take you time
