Just like I made my tattoo guide, I also need an up-to-date handy FAQ to end the questions that I'm getting daily
, and this is gonna be the journal that I will be linking everybody to.If you want any question added to this FAQ, feel free to comment
Yes, it will be getting updated over time. OKAY, LET'S START Are u a boi or a girl?!
White, straight cis male here, yo.For how long have you been drawing?
My dA account is 5 years old now, and this pretty much marks my time of steady everyday work. I'm not counting earlier failures and childish school scribbles, because everybody did that.What tools are you using?
I am mostly digital artist at this point.
If I happen to work traditionally, I often use Copic Markers combined with ink liners, B and HB pencils and occasionally watercolours.
But my primary tools of trade are my trusty Wacom Intuos5 M and Photoshop CC. Never have I tried any other art software, most likely never will. Photoshop master race. I grew up on that.Additionally, which Photoshop brushes are you using?
These I can share, because I'm using 100% free brushes used by most digital painters. I assure you that those are pretty generic and even repeat, because as with every tool, it's not about the tool itself but how
you use it. Download and EXPERIMENT. Can you teach me how to art?!
Short answer: no
Long answer: I am a horrible teacher. Most I can offer is my art itself and maybe timelapse videos that show my process www.youtube.com/user/FoxInShad…How about just a little advice if I show you my art? PLEEEASE?
Sorry, I am one big pile of art philosopher mess. This is the best piece of advice that there is out there: zenpencils.com/comic/90-ira-gl…
Eh, I'd love to help out each and every single one of you, but understand that it would eat up my time completely. Best you can do is a shit ton
of work, and you should start that by finding yourself those 4-6 hours for daily
practice. And look how others do art. End of transmission.Can I use your art on my YT video, website/whatever?!
Okay, I have no fucking idea why, but people are always asking me for permission to use commissions I made for someone else
For them you have to ask the character owner, not me. They have the rights over the artwork.
For everything else, you have to ask me for permission, since this is judged mostly case-by-case. I am usually fine with personal use, but stuff like websites is a whole different story. Write me.Can I order a drawing from you?
In case you haven't noticed yet; yes
, I do make commissions. It's my job. I wrote down all of the technical details somewhere else so I won't bother explaining them in the FAQ:
Important changes in commission policy PLEASE READ
This annoys me as much as you, but this is forced on me rather than chosen, so let's overcome these obstacles together, shall we?
The changes are as follows:
The prices are going to be increased slightly in order to fit better to my local tax law. I really don't want to get you into details of that. Check out the current price list:
First time you place an order you will have to sign "Contract to perform a specific work" with me. This includes sharing personal data with me (but you'll get mine in exchange...) and also you'll have to send me a scan of a signed page. Photo will do as well.
This is completely normal among freelancers, imagine you are treated like a company ordering art assets from me. I need a paper for that.
All the personal data is completely safe with me, as I don't have any interest in sharing it. Still, it's required.
I need this only once. If you or
I am usually open for incoming orders, and if I am closed this means that I am a bit overwhelmed atm, but I am usually back to business shortly after. Check regularly.Are you open for requests/can I do an art trade with you?
Big surprise: I don't do requests, unless I clearly ask the audience for certain ideas/suggestions. If you want me to draw your OC, I am currently busy drawing other people's OCs, so you can join the waiting list and ask for commission
As for the art trades, I am usually the one asking for an art trade. Sorry if all of this sounds cocky but I am simply forever overwhelmed by drawings with which I pay my bills.What was that track that you played on your livestream?
