Q: What software/tablet do you use to make your art?
A: My software of choice is Clip Studio Paint, and I use a WACOM Intuos Pro Large tablet.

Q: Are there things you won't/prefer not to draw?
A: A list of subjects I accept for commissions can be found here!

Q: Can I use your art for icons/headers/phone backgrounds/etc?
A: See the image use part of my Terms of Service for a longer answer on this, but in short - I don't mind most of my art being used for personal things (phone backgrounds, wallpapers, etc). Please do not repost my work or create RP accounts or similar using art of my original characters or the characters belonging to any of my commissioners. My work is also unavailable for use in for-profit content or advertising. If you're unsure whether or not I'd be okay with you using my work in some way, please contact me first.

Q: Can I commission you for a tattoo design?
A: At present, I do not design art specifically for tattoos. It's not a skill I'm practiced or comfortable in. If you have a commissioned artwork from me that you'd like to give to a professional tattoo artist as inspiration for a proper piece of body art, that is 100% fine. 

Q: Can I repost your art if it's credited?
A: If it's on a platform I use such as twitter/tumblr, I'd prefer if you give the original post a retweet/reblog instead, but always feel free to ask if you're unsure!

Q: Can I use (x artwork/idea) in my personal tabletop campaign?

A: I don't mind people taking inspiration from my characters, creatures, or worldbuilds. That said, I'd rather people NOT use my work directly unless it's a piece I've listed as free-use, since most of my work is made for specific clients or with a personal story/purpose in mind and I would like to avoid it being associated with someone else's projects or worldbuilds. Ultimately, I can't stop you, so if you still if you still feel the need to use it, please always credit.
