What program do you use?
Primarily PaintToolSAI. For certain things I will also use PaintToolSAI v2 or Photoshop Elements, but I enjoy drawing in SAI the most. This also means that the brushes I mostly use are the vanilla SAI brushes.
What tablet do you use?
Wacom Bamboo Capture.
How long have you been drawing?
My whole life, really. From when I was old enough to hold a pencil, I've
been doodling constantly, and I never really stopped.
Do you have any training?
Nope. I'm more or less self-taught. I've never taken any actual art courses, and most of my techniques are consequentially pretty simplistic. I'm not able to attend college due to disability, so I make do with the tools I've got.
Are you open for commissions?
Almost always, yes.
Are you open for art trades?
Not usually. I will consider art trades with mutuals, however.
Are you open for requests?
No. If you want me to draw something for you, the proper thing to do is arrange a commission.
Can I post your art somewhere online?
No. I am grateful for reblogs and shares, but please do not upload my work anywhere yourself. That includes art I may have created for you on commission. "Even if I credit you?" Even then, the answer is still no.
Can I trace your art for practice, or color your line art?
I ask that you do not. I can't stop you, but I do not support doing this unless an artist has explicitly granted you permission--which I have not. If you're inspired by my art, I am genuinely flattered, but then I ask that you learn to work from inspiration instead of directly tracing my hard work.
Who is this fox-girl you draw all the time?
That is Daarka herself. She's one of my most prominent personal characters, and I love her dearly. She's used in my writing, and is the subject of a great deal of my art. I have a short introduction to her for my followers that you can check out [HERE].
Do you happen to be a part of Art Fight?
Yes! My profile can be found [HERE], and I'd love to see you at the next fight!
