A collection of common questions that I have been asked.
TOOLS OF THE TRADE
What do you use for drawing and sketching?
I use pencil, usually HB, and paper. I usually use graphite pencils but I like mechanical one too. Sometimes I use pencil crayons for light sketching.
What do you use for outlining?
I used the line/curved tool on MS Paint or Paint.NET. Sometimes a dark black pencil or black heavy-ink pen. Once in a while I use multi-coloured marker-pens for school.
So, you outline by hand and on the computer?
Not for the same artwork, no.
What do you use for colouring?
I use MS Paint, Paint.NET or PhotoFiltre on the computer. But once in a while I colour by hand. I use pencil crayons for school.
What do you use to animate?
I use iaza.com--www.iaza.com/--and I used to use a program called UnFreez.
Are ther any other programs you use?
I use Microsoft Office Picture Manager on the computer. I use it for cropping images, auto-correcting images (lighting) and rotating images.
Can I have a request?
Sorry, right now I'm too busy to take any.
Can we do an art trade?
Well, just ask and see, but when I get three I usually have to say no.
Can you join my contest?
Ill see if I can, but I make no promises.
Can you make me a gift?
No, asking for a gift is like a request. I only do gifts for people who are great frendsand if they've done something awesome for me. Unfortunately, I'm not making ANY for anyone right now.
Can you make me a fanart?
I only do fanart for what I am really interested in, and its only if I have time.
FRIENDS AND CLUBS
Can I be your friend?
I'm tired of people asking me this. I'd like to talk to you and get to know you first! Sometimes people comment and say 'nice work, wanna be friends?' I don't really know you then.
Can you join my club?
Ill only join if its something Im interested in.
Can I use your art?
Uh, no! It's mine and not meant to be used by anyone else.
Can I use your fan characters clothes/accessories for my character?
No, sorry. Id rather you not take my fan characters clothes or accessories for your own. I worked hard, and its what makes them unique.
Can I use your idea?
Well, it depends. Check with me first.
Can I use your TDI Doll Bases?
Only my new ones or any (new or old) ones of fan characters.
Can I use your lineart?
Of course! For some you make have to ask for the full image (read the artist's comments) though.
TOTAL DRAMA ISLAND (in general)
Do you have any tips for drawing TDI?
Practice, practice, practice! You can practice everything, but mainly what is hardest for you. Use references and keep trying.
What is hardest to draw for you? (TDI related)
Hands, ugh. The bodies used to be hard for me, but I practiced and got better.
Can you take a look at my artwork? (specific piece of work)
Just give me the link and Ill check it out.
