--------Welcome to the FAQ and Information Section!---------

REQUESTS?

-Yes, I do accept requests. Please submit all requests in a note to me with "Request" somewhere in the subject line, along with any specifics or associated references for the request.
That means if I look over your request, I should know EXACTLY what it is you want. Anything you do not tell me up front is left up to me to decide, so there's no going back later and saying "but I wanted" or "could you change". Requests are FREE, so the only thing they cost is my time and effort. Mine. Got that? So please tell me if there are specifics ahead of time. I'll look over all requests and let you know if I accept. If I decline, I will also let you know the reason.

COMMISSIONS?

Commissions are only accepted from friends for now, as I do NOT have electronic payment set up and all payments are done by money order/cashier's check and sent by mail. Obviously I wouldn't give my personal address to just anybody. Besides, I'm not confident enough right now to feel like I can sell a lot of work.

If I get enough requests and those turn into people wanting commissions, I might change this later and get a form of electronic payment set up, but for now that isn't an issue.

CAN YOU DRAW A REQUEST IN SOMEONE ELSE'S STYLE?

No. Take a look at my gallery. I draw in that style. Anime/manga style. I'm not very good at realism and have no interest in copying someone else's style just to please you. There are plenty of artists who just emulate someone else. Ask them.

WHAT REQUESTS DO YOU TURN DOWN?

If it's against the ToS, don't even ask me. The following are things that I will likely decline to work on:

--Yaoi/Yuri/Hentai (or any sexually graphic content)
--Extreme Obesity
--99% of anything involving incest
--99% of anything anthro/furry/animals* [Particularly because it isn't my forte]
--Any project so large it should be commission. (such as one-shot comics)
--Drawing vehicles. (I don't have experience with this, so please don't ask)

*I may make exceptions for certain animal types, especially if references are involved.

Shounen and shoujo ai are okay. They are generally more about interpersonal relationships than anything sexual, and I don't mind illustrating that.


MAY I RE-POST YOUR WORK IF I GIVE YOU CREDIT?

The short answer is no. If it is a request, you may NOT re-post, upload or submit my work anywhere. I am not comfortable with that.
If you have commissioned work from me, obviously you own the work and can do whatever you want with it; as long as I am given credit for the piece, it is otherwise out of my hands.


PLEASE NOTE:

I will reiterate--since I, apparently, have to--please, do NOT ask me to do work that would clearly be commission as a free request. It's a little insulting. In that same turn, don't try to manipulate me to see just how much you can get for free. I have the rule for a reason: submit what you'd like via note and if it isn't accepted, you'll know why and have the chance to modify said request.

I'm not a fast artist, I get distracted by shiny objects and I am obsessively indecisive as I work--but I bust my ass and do a good job considering my skill level. So when I get large requests, they can monopolize my time. I do accept multiple requests, but if you have more than two at a time, the others will be cycled in the queue so that I can fulfill any other requests I receive as well.

=_= Thank you. And remember: Free doesn't mean take advantage of a person's kindness and willingness to work!

Interests
Ah, so the meteor shower is going on for a few days! Last night I got to see two meteors, one was really close! I was so shocked I forgot to make a wish. ^^; During the second one, I remembered to wish and was startled during which by, what I can only describe as the call of a loud, drunk frat guy---which turned out to be a giant owl screaming and cajoling to his buddy as he swooped past us. A moment later his strong, silent-type friend (or maybe her friend?) followed suit, his flight going along the actual sidewalk path rather than diagonal across the parking lot.

They were pretty huge owls, man. And I'd never heard them make calls that sounded so human before--or at least, never realized. Now I'm glad I didn't scream out my window a few weeks ago at what I thought was loud, drunk kids partying.. Jemi pointed out that I would have been the crazy lady who screams at owls. He also was quick to point out that the giant, scary, winged beast I saw (and fearfully dubbed Mothman) must have been the owls and preceded to make fun of me. Yeah, so I thought a huge, burly owl with an impressive wingspan was a fictional urban legend of impending doom. What of it?  ⌐_⌐;

Okay, so now that I've gotten through some errands and things (Jemi hogging the computer on his day off yesterday and getting our windshield finally replaced...$170), back to work! I'm currently working more than one request right now. As always, requesters will be notified of finished requests as I complete and submit them. Please look forward to them! As always, I apologize for the long wait times. I'm a very slow human. Apologies!
