FAQ

Journal Entry: Wed Mar 1, 2017, 6:47 AM
Decided to make a "Frequently Asked Questions" journal since I get asked the same questions quite often.

ABOUT MY ART

What software do you use?
Clip Studio Paint Pro and Adobe Photoshop CS6 for edits


What tablet do you use?
Wacom Intuos CTH-680/S3. I also use my Surface Book to draw.


What canvas size do you use?
Usually around 3000px or 4000px


Why isn't there many traditional pieces in your gallery?
Well, believe it or not, I actually enjoy working traditionally much more than I do digitally. I don't submit many traditional pieces simply because I always make mistakes that I am unable to fix. With digital art, I can just hit the "undo" button and try again! But with traditional art, my mistakes can't really be fixed.


Why is there only girls in your gallery?
I find girls much easier to draw. Whenever I try to draw boys, they end up looking feminine, and the body tends to look very square.


Is Candy Meow your persona?
Yup, she's completely based off of me <3


Can I draw your O.C.s?
Absolutely! I love seeing my O.C.s in different styles. Just make sure to credit me for the character and show me when it's done!


Can I re-upload your art to my gallery or other websites (with edits or without)?
Absolutely not. I've been asked this many times, and it's something I am not okay with. I will not give you a hard time if you ask me. However, a few people gave me a hard time about the fact that I said no, and they tried to convince me to let them use my art. Do not do this! It is very disrespectful and you need to respect the artist's decision.


Can we Art Trade? Are Commissions Open? Do you take Requests?
All of these questions are answered on my front page, so make sure you read that before asking.

OTHER QUESTIONS

Can you please watch me?
Please do not ask me this, it makes me uncomfortable. I will watch you only if I love your artwork. 


Can I have points please?
Do not ask me please. If I want to donate to you, I will. But I will not give you points if you just ask me.


Can I have your phone number/address?
Believe it or not, I have been asked this before and the answer is NO.


If you have any other questions not already answered here, just comment below with your question and I will answer. It doesn't have to be about my art, you can ask anything~!! <3

I wish cool hair colours existed naturally though, it would be so awesome :3

Who the heck asked your phone number? Haha

How about...your age~? I think is less random than asking about your address...

But in case you don't want to answer that...when did you draw your O.C. for the first time? Did you inspire in something? Besides you~~

The person who asked for my phone number was a middle aged man who was married. He donated $20 to my PayPal and then asked for my number. I was so confused and weirded out...  >.>

I can tell you my age hahah~
I turn 24 next month, however when most people guess my age, they usually say 18 or 19. 
Although sometimes I feel like I'm an old lady because I get tired very easily hahhaah~

The first time I drew Candy Meow was December 24, 2015~ I ended up changing her design a little bit~
I basically just put my favorite things into that character:
~pink is my favorite color
~I love lolita-styled clothing
~I wear that hairstyle
~I love candy
~I say "meow" randomly when talking in person

Well, I guess your number is worth more than $20 haha~ (Just kidding. If you donate someone, is because you want to support him/her, not to get a number)

If I tell you the truth, I thought you had 19-20 years hahaha~ But I'm not surprised. You can be cute regardless the age <3 And I tell you why you get tired very easily. Because your cuteness is so big that you can't carrying it with you all day <3

That's a very sweet christmas present indeed~ So, if I say your O.C. is very adorable, I would say you're adorable too? I agree with that then <3

Exactly, I hate people that give only to get something in return!

aww hahahah~ that's a nice explanation for my being tired hahaha thank you <33

well...I don't have green hair or pink eyes! aside from that, we are pretty much the same girl~ <3

Ohhh what a shame. I really like green hair. That's one of the main reasons I love your O.C~

Can I ask more questions~?

-What kind of music do you like?

-...have you thought about getting your hair green?

Hahaha sorry about that last question~ But green is my favorite color <3

My two types of favorite music are both super different! I really like heavy metal and cute Japanese pop <33

I've dyed my hair lots of times~ the only "fake" colors I've done are pink and purple <3  I don't want to dye it green...I already know it would look weird with my skin tone

Dolmenator Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2017  Student General Artist
Heavy metal? Now I'm impressed haha~ From all types of music, heavy metal was the last that I thought.

Ohhh :( Anyway, I'm sure you look cute with that colors <3

FINAL QUESTIONS. Sorry I'm a bit curious OTL

-Do you like videogames? You have a favorite one?

-Te gusta hablar español?

And that's it. Thanks for answering my random questions <3

hahaha nobody ever believes me when I tell them I listen to metal (I mean people I meet in person) ~ they just assume I only listen to cutesy music, which I do like <33

I love video games~!! <33  I don't know if I have a favorite now because they are so many...but my first favorite was Final Fantasy IX <333

Me gusta hablar Espanol~ pero no se me da tan bien como el Ingles~
