Hey guys! Sorry for the slow updates as of late, but Im almost out of school, then I can finally get back on track with commissions, comics, and other stuff! So hang in a few more weeks, yeah?

While Im busy, I still make time to help people out and reply to comments when I can. Lately, I've been getting a lot of people asking for help and advice on their own art. That, or people ask what I use for programs, tablets, how long it takes me, brushes, ect. So Im gonna answer a few here! If you have any other questions for me, whether its technical, about your own work/ constructive criticism, or even personal goals and issues, Im always willing to listen and help where I can!

Q: What program (its not an app) do you use?
A: I use a rather old and outdated version of GIMP. GIMP 2.6 I believe. Its not the best program out there and lacks a few things that newer programs, such as SAI, have. Its not advanced or fantastic, but it's simple and easy to remember for those who have bad memory or find the simpler things better to use (like myself). 

Q: What tablet do you use?
A: Wacom bamboo. Its probably the best tablet to get and some of them don't cost more than $60. Most of the artist's I've talked to use Wacom as well.

Q: How long does it take you to draw a picture/comic page?
A: It all depends on the picture. Pictures with full body take longer than a bust and an indoor scene may take longer than a forest scene. I draw slower than most artists (Vopsea never lets me forget) so I may take longer than you as well. Some drawings, when Im lucky, take 7-8 hours. Comic pages take around three days unless I have trouble with a pose, causing it to take more time.

Q: What brushes do you use?
A: I make all my brushes, though I usually use the default ones.

Q: How many layers do you use per image?
A: TOO MANY. The basics have: Sketch, background sketch, background line art, background color, lineart, base color, shade 1, shade 2, sometimes shade 3, lighting 1, lighting 2, and the complicated ones (like comics) have a lot more.

Q: Can you criticize my art? I want to improve.
A: Always! If you send me a link, I can do that. Or I can browse your gallery for one as well.

Q: Where did you learn to draw and how did you learn anatomy?
A: I'm a self taught artist. I've never really gone to a school for art unless I was the one teaching the class. Anatomy, like everything I draw, was learned through practice and observation. Searching for life references will help you on your way to understanding the human or animal body structure. Dont get discouraged when you cant get it right, you're learning, and even I make mistakes.

Q: Can I buy a commission? How much are they? Can I buy them with DA points?
A: Commissions are currently CLOSED until I can finish school and get the time to do them right. When I open them back up, I will be posting ALL the information needed. All commissions are usually from 17 to 35 USD not including background costs or additional requests (ei other characters, animals, or heavy effects like heavy rain or LOTS of fire). All commissions are paid through paypal using US currency. I do not accept points as payment (Doubtful I can write DA points into bills for rent and power).

Ah, no. I think bases are the worst form of art. if you want a base, find a coloring book. They hold the same amount of value and teach you just as much (aka nothing)
