FAQ

I love interacting with all of you, discussing art, and talking about the topics we all share a common love for. That's why I keep making art in the first place! :D I get asked some of the same questions from time to time, so I thought putting together a FAQ might answer some things right off the bat. If anyone has any other questions or would like further clarification, though, please don't hesitate to ask!

Q: Who made your avatar? Can I use it?
A: I did! :D You may use it as your own avatar as long as you give credit back to me somewhere on your profile and/or signature and do not claim it as your own.

Q: What do you make your pieces with?
A: A mouse and Adobe Photoshop CS5 + Illustrator CS5. My computer is an HP ProBook laptop with 8GB RAM and Win7 Professional (64-bit).

Q: Do you do commissions?
A: Yes and no; it really depends on what you're looking to have commissioned. I don't have a set type of project for x amount of money. If you have a specific sort of idea you'd like to run past me, don't hesitate to drop me a line! The more details the better. :nod: I am open for both personal/private and commercial commissions.

Q: Can I use a piece of yours in a project, production, or other venture for free? I will credit you!
A: I appreciate the offer for exposure, but I have to pass. I put a lot of time and effort into pieces, and as a professional who counts on my art to help make a living? I can't afford to keep making art while giving it away for free.

Q: Can I use one of your pieces as my personal desktop wallpaper, phone wallpaper, etc?
A: Sure! Personal/private use of my preview images is fine. As long as you don't make any profit from them or edit + redistribute them as your own, it's fine.

Q: Why do you have the dA watermark on all of your pieces?
A: To prevent theft/resale. The theft and resale of digital images is extremely rampant. Many professional digital artists have been victim to art theft and had their images used on unauthorized products/merchandise sold for the thief's profit. This is incredibly common on 3rd party sales websites like Etsy and eBay. Putting watermarks on images and only providing smaller sized preview images are simple measures against theft. I would encourage anyone who uploads pieces on dA - or elsewhere - to do these things, too.

If you have any other questions about my art or a specific piece, please feel free to ask on my profile or send me a note. :)

Happy 14th birthday, deviantART! I am a dummy! As part of the celebrations, dA put out the idea for deviants to post their "stories" about how dA - the site, its users, its art, etc - helped to further us each individually as artists so I thought I'd write something up for myself. ;) (Wink) This account has been registered since March 16th, 2013 but I've been a frequent visitor to dA with other accounts (or no account at all) for many, many years. In the year I've been on dA in this account, though, a lot has changed and I've definitely grown as an artist, so here is my deviantART story! Meow :3

I registered this account in March 2013 in the hopes of furthering my ambitions and skills as a digital artist. Before then, I'd been a professional web developer and website designer but never gave much value to my own original art. deviantART gave me a place to showcase my art to others who truly value art both as a hobby and a profession. After uploading some of my pieces to dA, I realized that not only did a lot of other artistic people out there share my same interests (fandoms, styles, etc), but that a lot of people enjoyed my original pieces and wanted to see more. La la la la


The Divine Triforce by ever-so-excited The Hallowed Mockingjay by ever-so-excited The Sacred Starman by ever-so-excited
Pieces from my first "series" of themed works, the Arabesque Series. (started Dec 2012)

The more time I spent on dA, the more time I browsed other awesome works, and the more time I spent interacting with other art lovers of every background and skill level, the more I wanted to continue my efforts in digital art and broaden my skills. To do so, I set out to genuinely step out of my comfort zone and try totally new styles of art I hadn't really practiced before. From bold typography, to emotive scenes with quotes, to vector portraits, to abstract geometric pieces, to sprite scenes, I've tried a slew of new styles in the last 1.5 years and it's definitely helped me grow as a more well-rounded digital artist. Nod I wouldn't have sought to challenge myself in such ways if it weren't for the encouragement and resources I found via dA.


It Only Takes a Spark by ever-so-excited A Wizard's Well Wishes by ever-so-excited Midna Geometry by ever-so-excited Framed Faux-Paint Zelda by ever-so-excited You Won My Heart by ever-so-excited
A wide array of styles, types, and purposes. (June 2013-Jan 2014)

Just the last 1.5 years on dA has resulted in interacting with hundreds of art lovers, commenting thousands of times, viewing tons of awesome artwork, and overall becoming a better artist myself. :D (Big Grin) Art is incredibly important to me and creative expression is something I need to be do to feel like myself. dA has thoroughly assisted in showing me new ways I can achieve that as well as reasons why artistic expression is something to value regardless of what anyone else ever says. Heart Happy birthday, dA and thank you for giving me such a great place to be who I truly am: an artist! Love

For fandom + art chat, discussion, fun, and more!

Hey there! I'm a 20-something female from the United States living in Australia with a love for gaming, books, movies and - of course - art! I've worked professionally and freelance in website/graphic design in the past but have recently decided to focus more on strictly artistic endeavors such as print design and jewelry design. My jewelry design is a bit more of my serious side, but my digital art is far more fun than anything!

Whether it's historically-inspired takes on modern pop culture, typography prints, or other forms of digital art, most of my works have to do with topics and fandoms I love. My favorite topics/fandoms include The Legend of Zelda, The Lord of the Rings, The Hunger Games, The Sims and many others. I know a few of YOU also like those sorts of topics so I hope you see something you like! :D If you do see something and wish to purchase it, most everything is available for purchase as prints/posters via deviantArt with some other items (like t-shirts, phone cases, etc) available through my RedBubble and Society6 accounts.

Thank you for stopping by!
