What program do you use?
Primarily PaintToolSAI v2. This also means that the brushes I mostly use are the vanilla SAI brushes. I occasionally use ClipStudioPaint for special effects!
Lately, this has expanded to include Procreate on iPad.
What tablet do you use?
Wacom Bamboo Capture; alternatively, iPad (7th Gen.) + Apple Pencil.
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.
Where can I learn more about the dice you make?
All of my dice (and related) content can be found at Shop.Daarka.com!
Are you open for commissions?
You can check the present status on the [Commissions] page!
Are you open for art trades?
Not usually. I will consider art trades with mutuals, however.
Are you open for requests?
No, unless otherwise stated. If you want me to draw something for you, please see my [Commissions] page!
Can I post your art somewhere online?
No. I am grateful for reblogs and shares, but please do not re-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. You can see her and the rest of my characters [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!
