FIND ME ON:
Over the past few months I have been getting more and more notes/comments/emails asking me all kinds of questions. I tried to answer them all as thoroughly as possible, but eventually it began taking more time than I could spare, so - stealing the idea from some other artists on the site - I decided to put together this FAQ. Hope it helps.
--- Why don't you create your own models instead of using Poser?
Read here: tasharene.deviantart.com/journ…
--- What tools do you use?
Poser Pro 2014, Photoshop CS3, Wacom Inutos4 Medium.
--- How much experience do you have?
I'm basically a self-taught artist. Learning the tricks of the trade since 2005.
--- Why do you watermark your art?
My art is not public domain and the only reasonable way to stop thieves from taking my images and re-posting/selling them as their own, is to slap a watermark across each and every single one.
--- Can I find your art on other website galleries?
No, dA is the only place where I display my images and if you find any of them elsewhere, please report it to me ASAP.
--- Can I use your art for ... (insert anything here)?
Not without my written permission. In other words - ASK FIRST, preferably in a note. Also, see below.
--- Can I print your art out for personal use?
It's not that I can stop you from doing that, but bear in mind that the images in my gallery are low dpi/low quality, watermarked versions of the original art, so they are not suitable for print.
--- Why none of your works are available as dA prints?
Because, due to technical issues, I am unable to properly color manage my images, so prints may be drastically different from the intended look.
--- May I use your art for non-profit work like banners, sparkles, tubing, signatures or animations, layouts?
Absolutely not. My work is copyrighted and is not public domain.
--- Have you ever received a Daily Deviation feature?
These definitely aren't my best works, but I'm happy and proud that someone deemed them good enough for the feature.
My art has also been chosen to become a part of Deviantart's Community Pride Flag ( danlev.deviantart.com/journal/…? ).
It may not be a DD feature, but I'm equally proud of it, and here is the image in the original colors:
--- Can you do me a fanart of...(insert anything here)?
In most cases - no. I very rarely do fanart because I dislike using concepts I do not own, it puts too many limitations on me as an artist.
--- Can you please watch me?
Why should I? If only to increase the number in your statistics then the answer is no.
--- Would you like to join my contest?
As a rule, I avoid contests because of the deadlines and limitations that come with them, so my answer will most probably be "no". Sorry.
--- Do you do erotic art?
Yes. I'm kinda famous for my troll porn, too.
--- "O'haaaii! I'd like a cake/llama/whatever badge, can you give me one?"
I ignore and immediately hide comments like that. Don't spam, please. Also, read here: tasharene.deviantart.com/journ…
--- Do you play video games?
You bet. Anything except shooters and RTS is fine by me, including MMOs.
--- Do you roleplay online?
I don't roleplay by default. I never really could get into that, it seems totally not my cup of tea, so I'm sorry, the answer is: no.
--- Biggest pet peeve?
Here on dA? That would be commenting on something in my gallery only to ask me to visit your gallery. Also, read here: tasharene.deviantart.com/journ…
--- Can I have your aim? MSN? YIM?
Nope. I value both my privacy and my spare time, so I only talk to a few people via IMs, sorry.
More questions? Ask nicely and I shall answer.
