--------Welcome to the FAQ and Information Section!---------|
-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 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)
--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.
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!
