If you have any questions not answered here, please feel free to ask!
What is the symbol next to your username?:
+ Many of you have asked how I got the fancy symbol next to my name and what it means. Well, that's the Senior Member symbol. I received this symbol after I served on the Community Relations team for the Anime/Manga community here on deviantART. It was my pleasure and an honor to serve. You can learn more about becoming a senior member below:
FAQ #29: How do I become a Senior Member?
What tools do you use?:
+ For traditional art I use a mechanical pencil, sketchbook, and if I want color I will use Prismacolor Pencils.
+ For digital art I do all my sketching, planning, linework, and painting in PaintTool SAI. I sometimes bring the piece into Photoshop CC in order to do some editing as well. I draw with a Wacom Intuos 4 Tablet.
ART SHARING / USING
May I share your artwork with others on other social media?:
+ I absolutely do love for my artwork to be shared! I do request that you first speak to me about it before doing so. The reason for this is that I may already have the artwork on that particular social media, and if I do I would appreciate having more traffic directing to my original image from that source. (ie: Reblogging my Tumblr post is better than creating a new one with my image).
+ If you share my work, please include a link back to the original piece as well as give me credit for the work so that the people you share it with can easily locate me and the art.
May I use your artwork?
+ Please directly message me with the piece of art you are requesting to use and we will discuss permissions. I may require a fee for using the piece depending on what it is used for.
COMMISSIONS, ART TRADES, FREE REQUESTS, COLLABORATIONS
Are you open for commissions?:
+ Yes! You can see more information about my commissions in the following links:
+ Commission Information - Read this journal for info on what I will and will not draw, how to request, how to pay, and to see available slots.
+ Commission Prices - This journal contains the information on the commission types I offer and their prices.
Are you open for art trades?:
+ No, I am not open at this time. When I do art trades it is almost always with really close friends that I know offline. There are rare occasions that I will open up art trades with my watchers. When I do so it will be via a journal. Make sure you're watching my journals if this is something you may be interested in. If you're interested in art from me now, please consider purchasing a commission.
Can you please draw me a picture for free?
+ Sorry, I do not do free art. If you're interested in art from me, please consider purchasing a commission.
Will you do an art collaboration with me?
+ No, I only do art collaborations with really close friends that I know offline, and even then I rarely do it. If you're interested in coloring some of my art, please consider purchasing a line art commission.
