FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

:damphyr: What program do you use?
Paint Tool SAI and Adobe Photoshop Elements 9.

:damphyr: What tablet do you use?
It is a Monoprice tablet. The model number is WP1062-TAB10. It is 10x6.5, because I like working on a canvas that is almost as big as an actual sheet of paper. It costs somewhere between $40-$50, depending on where you buy it. It's a really nice tablet and it's a WONDERFUL alternative to Wacom, especially if you don't need buttons, touchpads, etc and just want to use the tablet for drawing and shortcut set-up.

:damphyr: Do you do commissions? What are your prices?
Yes. My commission prices are always in my displayed journal.…

:damphyr: Will you draw my comic for me? I have a great idea!
I won't do any manga or comic that isn't written by me, my husband, or a close friend. The legal hassle is too much and I won't do any work for someone unwilling to pay $200/page. This is the industry standard and, while I know that I'm not a big name in comics, that's the industry standard for simply inking a page... and doesn't include panel layouts, coloring, word bubbles, or lettering. For me to charge $200/page for comic work is fairly cheap.

:damphyr: Do you do points commissions?
Occasionally, yes. However, the number of points that each commission costs is equal to the amount of real life money you would need to pay to get those points.
