Sometimes i get asked the same questions over and over again, so to make things a little easier, i've made this journal to answer those questions. This way i won't sound like a broken record every time i answer them. This journal will be updated as more frequently asked questions pop up. Where did you go to school?
Sheridan College in Oakville Ontario. I studied illustration interperative. What kinds of pencils do you use to draw?
I use a mechanical pencil mostly at a .5 thickness and a 2H lead. The 2H lead is soft enough to leave a dark enough mark, yet hard enough that it won't smudge as easily as say, an HB lead. What pens do you use to ink?
I rarely ink my drawings. I'm terrible with it and would rather give my drawings to someone who knows what they're doing. If you see a drawing that i've done that looks inked, it's most likely not inked and it's just my pencils. if I do ever ink anything, i'll say in the description what i used to ink it. The only other time do i use inks is during conventions and i'm sketching for people. Do you work for Udon?
Yes Are you available for commissions or requests?
Fortunately for me (and perhaps unfortunately for the person asking this question), Udon gives me enough work to keep me busy enough that i can't do any outside comissions. I VERY rarely do free artwork for anyone unless its for something or someone special. All the personal artwork you see in my deviant art is done during my personal time. Time that I'LL decide what to do with. I apologize in advance to those wanting to ask about commissions. the best way to get a commission from me is finding me at a convention that i'm attending. i usually try to do as many as possible. Can i colour some of your lineart?
Anyone is free to take the lineart from my page and add colour to it. I'm grateful that people appreciate it enough to want to add colours to it. I do however ask that I'm credited for doing the line art and would appreciate a link back to my page. I rarely give away hi res linart to people though, and when i do, it's because me and the colourist have already made a private agreement about it. Will you enter my contest?
While contests can be fun, i just don't have the time to enter them. sorry How do you get your lines so clean? what is your process when doing an illustration?
The amount of times this question is asked almost baffles me because the answer can be found right in my journal! Just click on my Step By Step
link and you'll find the answer! SPAM
This really isn't a question but i suppose it still applies since i've been getting SO much of it lately. if you send me spam notes or messages on my dA (sent to a mass of people at once, either advertising their site or contest they're holding, or maybe direct links to their work). i'll simply ignore it, hide it, or delete it. i pay for a subscription so i won't get advertising on my page, i don't need it sent to me from other members, thanks! it's fine if i get personalized notes and messages but i won't even look at the spam ones.Can you get me a job or work with Udon?
Probably not. I don't really have much of a say on who Udon hires to do work for them. Once in a while I may recommend an artist for them to look at, but I'll only do that with people that I've known for a little while and can rely on them to hit deadlines and be easy to work with. It's generally easier just to contact them directly for work. Although I'd advise that you read their FAQ first before doing so since they're not always looking for people.
before you ask me a question, make sure i haven't already answered it by clicking the Frequently.Asked.Questions
