Can I use your artwork?
No one may copy, edit, steal, sell or redistribute my artwork in any way.
You are welcome to use an image as your desktop or phone wallpaper, or as a print-out for personal uses, but please do not use my images for anything else.
You do NOT have my permission to repost my images on the internet.
Screenshots of things you have made in my games are fine but please DON'T upload them to DeviantArt because you did not draw it.Why do you not reply to my comments?
Because I get so many visitors now, I just don't have the time to reply to every message. : ( So, while I eventually get to read all of them, I decided that I will only reply to comments on my profile, Notes and on my most recent deviations/journal entries.
I'm honestly so sorry!Here, I made you a gift. So can you please make something for me?
While I very much appreciate the gift, it is very rude to bribe people like that.
I also won't give points away just because someone asks- point begging is rude.What do you use to make your art and games?
The vast majority of my digital art is drawn in Flash, which is created in vector style. Vector art is very smooth and clean because it does not pixellate during creation. I reccommend using Flash for creating vector art, but Photoshop is also good. I have always used a mouse to draw but I am now practicing with a tablet. ^_^
The way I make games is by using software called Flash, with a code called Actionscript. I learn most of my codes through tutorials in books or online; sometimes I collaborate with ~Oyer
on actionscript. Basic games usually take 1-2 weeks for me to make, bigger games can take 1-2 months.
I currently have a chronic illness called M.E. so my game-making periods generally vary from a week to a few months.
For pixel art I use good old MS Paint! I use Photoshop to make the transparrent background, then I animate the art by putting frames together in Microsoft Gif Animator. You can quite easily do everything in Photoshop, but this is just the method I am used to. ^.^ ;
For my traditional art, I use your typical clicky pencil and colourless eraser, and colour using Crayola colour pencils.
Crayola colour pencils are very vibrant and I reccommend them to anyone who enjoys creating bright and colourful drawings!Where can I get Flash?
Flash is very expensive; but if you are a student, you can get a massive discount if you show proof to the store that you're in education.
If you can't get it that way, you can download the 30-day free trial of the latest version from the official Adobe website, here: [link]
If you want to use Flash for longer than 30 days, my advice is to seek out Flash MX, an outdated but still fully functional version that should be fairly cheap. Sorry, but I don't have time to help you make your own game. : (How do you usually work?
Inbetween sleeping. I have the chronic disease Myalgic Encephalopathy (M.E.) so I need to rest quite frequently.Why are some of your games on DeviantArt just pictures or previews?
These games were sold to a gaming website, so they can be played on that website instead.
You will see a link to play the game below the screenshot in my artist's comments. ^_^:What is the name for your type of clothing?
The big frilly dresses etc. are a style called Lolita Fashion. It is very popular in Japan and stems from the rebellious Harajuku culture.
There are many substyles of Lolita fashion; my personal favourite is Sweet Lolita, but I also like a bit of Classic Lolita.
You can learn more about the fashion here: [link]
and here: [link]
. Wikipedia = [link]
I get most of my clothes from a japanese store called Bodyline ( [link]
Some come from Qutieland ( [link]
) and Anna House ( [link]
These are some of the cheapest yet high-quality lolita fashion stores available for customers outside of japan. It is a myth that lolita fashion has to be expensive!
~ COMMISSION FAQ
~What to do if you would like a commission:1 Please send me a private note telling me what you'd like
for your commission, with at least 3 reference pictures.
(A quick summary of their personality would very useful too!)
2 I will send you a reply note confirming your order and will
ask for your PayPal address so that I can send a money request.
3 Once I have been paid I will start work on your commission! Expect it within 30 days.
4 If you are in the waiting list, you don't have to pay until
I'm ready to start your own commission.
(Just in case you wish to cancel. ^_^)What payment methods do you accept?
Paypal only please. : ) Sorry, no points or other payments.
I can only do commissions for members who have had their DeviantArt account for over 2 months
(for security reasons).Can I cancel my commission once I have paid you?
No, sorry, but once you pay me there are no refunds.
The reason for this is that I will have already started making your commission, so I would have
earned nothing from the wasted time!
(However if on the rare chance I personally have to cancel your commission then you will get a full refund. ^_^ )What can I do with my commission?
All commissions are for personal use only and strictly forbidden from commericial use (e.g. you can't use a mini dress-up commission for a games website.) Using your chibi as a DeviantID or personal DeviantArt Journal decoration is fine.
Thanks for reading, and feel free to Note me if you're still unsure about something!
