Hi guys!

So, I decided to make a "F.A.Q." where you can find all the important and basic information about me and my work gathered neatly in one place. I'll probably add more Q&As later, so let me know if there's a specific question you think should be included and answered here. Bunny Emoji-72 (Kawaii) [V4] 

Life-related Questions:

Q: What's your name?
A: My name is Johanna-Stephanie, but my in every day life
I use my middle name and everyone calls me "Stephanie".
Please call me Stephanie/Stephie/Steph or by my current nickname Shipwreck. <3

Q: How old are you?
A: At the moment, I'm 22 years old.

Q: Where do you live?
A: I live in Athens, the capital city of Greece.

Q: What languages can you speak?
Greek: Fluently
English: Fluently
Japanese: Beginner

Q: Do you go to University/What do you study?
A: Yes, I'm a University student (4th year). I attend the "National and Kapodistrian University of Athens"
in the department of "Social Theology". "Social Theology" is
 a science that studies religion
and its effects on human societies as well as it's development as a phenomenon throughout history. 
Apart from the main courses that focus on various religions, I also get to study courses on art, sociology, philosophy, psychology, ancient languages e.t.c.

Q: What kind of job are you aiming for after finishing University?
A: Ideally, I'd like to be able to support myself by making money as an artist, at least part time.
My dream is to also work as an otome-game/visual-novel artist/developer and to make my own manga series.
I'm also preparing for another kind of profession that's connected to the degree I'm studying to get.

Q: Why did you choose the username/artist name "Stephie-Jo"?
A: "Stephie-Jo" was originally a nickname that I came up with in 9th or 10th grade. I don't remember how I came up with it,
but I was probably looking for something that sounded unique and ended up combining my first and middle name
to make it up. I do think that this nickname sounds veeerry cringey, but I guess it stuck.

Q: Do you have any other social media accounts?
A: Twitter, Tumblr, Toyhouse.
(I post my art there too, so feel free to follow me, if you'd like)
I also have a Discord if you want to chat with me!
Add me: Stephie Jo#2039

Art-related Questions:

Q: How long have you been drawing for?
A: I've been drawing traditionally ever since I was very young (basically ever since I can remember).
I've been drawing digitally since November of 2015.

Q: What tools do you use?
Graphics Tablet: Wacom Intuos Comic
Program: Clip Studio Paint Pro

Q: How often do you draw?
A: As often as I can manage, especially when I'm feeling inspired. However, since
I have a pretty tough schedule and there are a lot of days when I'm tired or
not in the mood, I'm not able to draw as much as I'd like, unfortunately. I usually
draw for a few hours every other day, or, if I'm lucky, on consecutive days.

Q: Do you stream your art process?
A: Yes, I do, occasionally! Come join!
(make sure to follow me, so you get notified when I'm streaming)

Q: Do you do commissions?
A: Yes! I'm currently accepting pointPoints commissions!
Please take a look if you're interested~!
Point Commissions - CLOSED!Hi guys! 
So, after a long time of planning to, I have finally decided to open commissions!! I'm very nervous since this is my first time doing this! nervous neko emoji 
Unfortunately, due to several reasons, I'm not yet able to accept actual money, so for now the currency I will accept for my work will be DA points (Points). I thought it would be a good opportunity to collect some points for in-site purchases and for commissioning other artists. Bunny Emoji-72 (Kawaii) [V4] 

Bear Emoji-35 (Shocked Exclamation) [V2] Commissions are: CLOSED Bear Emoji-35 (Shocked Exclamation) [V2] 
Estimated time of receiving your commission at this point of time: 3 weeks - 2 months
(If you're not okay with waiting that long, then please don't order)

Q: Do you do requests?
A: Occasionally and only for watchers. I always make sure to notify my
watchers when requests are open, so if you're interested in getting
some free art from me, keep an eye out for any updates.
Here is my Request Box:
  Request Box - CLOSED!Hi everyone!
This is my request box. I open it occasionally when I feel like experimenting and drawing adorable characters.

What I Offer:
Type: Since I'll be taking requests for experimental purposes, I will not be specifying the type of artwork that you will be receiving. You may get a sketch or a lined chibi/bust/half-body/e.t.c. drawing. It will sort of be like a surprise. ^^
I WILL DRAW: girls, boys, kemonomimi, fantasy-themed characters.
I WILL NOT DRAW: 18+ concepts, heavy gore, extremely masculine characters, old people, fanart, mecha, anthro.
Keep in mind:
Snowflake Please don't be upset if I don't choose your character, cause there's still a chance
I might choose it the next time I feel like drawing a request. ^w^
Snowflake Please don't be upset if you receive a sketch while someone else receives a

Q: Do you do art-trades?
A: Art trades are always open, but I'm only able to accept them occasionally (unless the offer
is too tempting to turn down). If you're interested in trading with me, you need only
DM me and I'll let you know if I'm available.

Q: Do you have any drawing tips?
A: I'm still a beginner, but I wouldn't mind sharing my current 
drawing techniques and general tips with you. 
Don't hesitate to ask if you ever need advice.

Q: Can I use your art for...

A: If you want to use my art for something, please make sure to ask me first!
Do not use my art without my permission!
Unless, of course, the drawing was made specifically for you, in which case
you can use it however you like (but not commercially),
as long as you credit me as the artist.

Q: Can I draw your characters?
A: Of course, you can! It would make me happy if you like my OCs enough to want to draw them! <3

It would make me feel very uncomfortable.
It's something only I will do when/if I choose. )

And of course, please don't claim them as yours
and make sure to credit me as the creator. <3

Thank you so so much! Bear Emoji-04 (Shy) [V1]

Stephie-Jo Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes I am! I'm still a beginner, but I'm doing my best! Bunny Emoji-72 (Kawaii) [V4] 
DSegno92 Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I just know some random words. And only one kanji out of...500?
Stephie-Jo Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hahaha! I also know very few kanji! They're kind of hard to learn!
DSegno92 Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I guess. In college I've seen exercise books of those who study Oriental languages: pages and pages filled with ONE character each.
Stephie-Jo Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank god for apps that can teach us every single kanji whenever we wish to learn, right?? Bear Emoji-01 (Good job) [V1]
