Q: What program/tools do you use for your work?
As of the moment I'm using Photoshop CS5 for my illustration works, and PaintTool SAI for my solid pieces (ie. chibis). My default work space is 11"x17" at 300dpi and draw with a Intuos 4 Medium
Q: What about brushes? What settings do you use and where do you get them?
I actually use a whole number of brushes depending on my mood and the alignment of the stars...aka it's all pretty bullpucky :'D I didn't make any of them and honestly don't really know where all mine come from since I don't really keep track of my resources. The rectangle, angled brush is by ~Erina so you can pester her for that. Otherwise the rest are accumulations from ConceptArt.Org forums and such so you'd going to have to hunt those down yourselves (sorryyyyy ;^;!)
Q: Can you please make a tutorial for _________?
Sorry I don't really have the concentration to do so >_< I tend to work on different parts of the image whenever I feel like it so trying to make a concise, step by step method of doing things is actually really difficult for me. I do have a work progress video up on youtube for chibis but...I would advise against using it as a crutch since it's just spawned a billion lookalikes of my really dumb chibis :'D
I do have a livestream though, so if you want to ask technical questions you can always come visit my streams and I'll try to answer to the best of my ability!
Q: Do you do Art Trades/Collabs/Requests?
No I don't :< At least not unless I realllyyyy REALLLLYYY like someone's work and even then I'd just feel bad I won't be capable of trading well so I just don't. Requests on the other hand...I take suggestions but not outright requests. I simply don't have the time.
Q: Would you participate in our charity book/indiegame/comicbook/etc...?
I mostly take commissions only, however I don't mind helping out in charity books when I do have the time. As for your indie games and such...it's not a complete no, but I would have to know what it is actually about and enjoy the premise to actually participate. If the concept and/or progress is disorganized and vague I am prone to ditch seeing as I can't just give you an indefinite amount of work and time. I give a lot of exceptions to friends but this is my general get go.
Q: May I use your work as a wallpaper/icon/signature/article decoration?
Yes o.o! I honestly really don't care what you do with it so long as you're not thick skinned enough to sell/claim it as your own LOL
Q: Ippus Ippus! _______ Went and stole/traced your work D:<!
Eh. It's the internet. Stuff like that happens.
That being said if he/she's selling work for real/pixel gold I'd much rather they CEASE AND DESIST NOW. It's not fair for the commissioners. I have a tendency to only get annoyed when other parties are involved LOL;;;
Q: Dogs or cats?
Dogs. Totally dogs.
