FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

:damphyr: Do you do requests?
Yes, but only if I'm not busy with commissions or personal projects. However, requests come with restrictions. I will only do fanart requests of things that I am a fan of and only canon pairings or pairings that I enjoy. I will do crack pairings, such as Drapple, Watson+jam, or Mycroft+cake. If you want something that involves an OC or a pairing that I don't really care for, you'll need to commission me. I will flat out refuse to do any request that is a fetish or has adult content, whether you attempt to pay me or not.

:damphyr: What will you do requests for?
Sailor Moon, My Little Pony, Adventure Time, Ava's Demon, Monster Pop!, Gravity Falls, Dollicious, Hotel Transylvania, The Avengers (and related movies), Batman, Young Justice, Teen Titans, Supernatural, Sherlock, Disney movies, Pixar movies, Gibli movies, Lord of the Rings, Evangelion, Doctor Who, X-Men, K-On, The Walking Dead, Harry Potter, Homestuck, Star Trek, Star Wars, Dune, Beetlejuice, anime by certain studios (Gainax, BONES, CLAMP, and KyoAni), Rahxephon, Escaflowne, Strawberry Shortcake, Lady Lovely Locks, Peppermint Rose, Rose Petal Place, Rainbow Brite, Welcome to Night Vale, Nightmare Before Christmas, and Scott Pilgrim.

:damphyr: What are you willing to do for art trades?
Currently, I will do art trades for custom MLP toys in the G4 generation or custom plushies in the G4 style. I'm also willing to do art trades for drawings if I like your style. Be sure to send me a note first! :heart:

:damphyr: What program do you use?
Paint Tool SAI and Adobe Photoshop Elements 9. However, I don't use all of the tools fully. I'm still using the same tools/tricks that I used with Adobe Photoshop Elements 4 and the same tools that I used with Adobe Photoshop 6 from the early 2000's.

: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: Can you make something (t-shirt, print, mousepad, mug, keychain, etc) for me and post it in your Zazzle store so I can purchase it?
Yes. In fact, if you let me sell the design to other people, then I will do a design for free. If you want me to make you a private design, I'm afraid there will be a fee. The fee will depend on what item you want me to put a design on.

: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. You will not find any of my commissions under 700 points unless I'm having a sale.

:damphyr: Why does it take you so long to get back to me? T_T
I have a lot of messages in my inbox and I have social anxiety. To be honest, I want to address everyone personally instead of looking like a I copypasted the same message of thanks or otherwise over and over because I am legitimately grateful but it wouldn't seem that way because I can't think of a unique message to reply with. =/ So I'm pretty bad with putting off replies.
