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A: A mouse and outdated versions of Adobe Photoshop CS4 + Illustrator CS4. My computer is a refurbished HP Pavilion desktop from 2009; I'm not sure I could even run CS5 or CS6 on this ol' thing.

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. :)

by ever-so-excitedthank you to my over 200 watchers!


On March 9th, 2014, I officially hit 200 watchers and I have to say thank you so so much to you all! La la la la I started uploading my works to dA back in March 2013 and never expected to have such great responses to so many of my pieces or interact with so many awesome people. You guys are really one of the biggest key motivators to helping encourage me to keep making art, keep growing as an artist, and push forward in making it my full-time career. Nod Your feedback, your critique, your heart-warming compliments, your suggestions, and your requests are always welcomed. Thank you so very much to the now 200+ of you who have watched me and continually showed your support via favs, comments, or just dropping by now and then! Your support means the world to me and I wouldn't be able to keep making pieces without you. Huggle!

To those of you who aren't watchers: thank you for your favs, comments, gallery requests, journal features, llamas, and everything else! Love You, too, are crucial in motivating and inspiring me, so you all deserve thanks, as well. ;) I'm so glad I decided to open a dA account and interact with all of you. It's one of my favorite things and I'm going to keep on doin' it. :D I hope to keep making pieces you all enjoy seeing pop up in your dA messages and I appreciate your support once again. Thank you! Heart

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!

Greetings and good afternoon to you!  Apologize for the delay in getting in touch with you, but wanted to let you know that your Zelda artwork print arrived beautifully, and safely!  :D  It came a few days ago although things have been hectic and my connection to the interwebs is oddly limited. 

The metallic print that I ordered looks wonderful against the Ivory-white contrast of the painting honestly, and also brings a neat effect to it.  Although I feel the non-metallic print would look just as beautiful in it's own likeness, wanted to give it a shot since the tones and contrast within your artwork seemed to compliment the print type well.

Anywho, really appreciate your kindness and consideration for adding the original print as well to your shop.  Hope to continue seeing more gorgeous works of yours, and if I'm lucky soon I hope to pick up a print of your latest Midna artwork!  ;D  She's amazing looking btw!

I apologize for my own delay as I've been busy with moving preparations but I'm glad I got the chance to really go through your comments now! :D I have to say a huge thank you again for purchasing a print but also for giving me such detailed feedback on it. :worship: Selling stuff through RB et al is great but not having the ability to see/proof any of my works before they ship out to someone is always kind of nerve-wracking. :faint: So to have someone like yourself who did buy something give me such awesome info about the end product is extremely helpful and I have to thank you just for that. I've been curious about the "metallic" finish and I think a lot of people are hesitant about buying it; I've probably had less than half a dozen prints sold with it including yours. I'm glad to hear you enjoy the finish and that it compliments even a more traditional looking piece. The only other print anyone has purchased in "metallic" is my Twilight Princess Hylian Shield, which kind of makes sense, so I'm really relieved to hear it's not some over-the-top finish that could distort a more traditional work. Again, I really appreciate you taking the time to give feedback on the final product versus just saying something like "It looks awesome!" ;) It's very helpful and I'm glad I have your experience to refer to in case someone asks about the metallic finish in the future.

I really appreciate your kindness, consideration, and support. :D As an artist it helps further my motivation and overall work. :nod: I hope you enjoy my future stuff and thank you so very much again!

No need to apologize, do understand things can be busy more often than not!  :)  Especially if you're in the process of moving!  ;D  Happy to help support your work and do try often to leave decent feedback for others, especially when I do really enjoy something and try to express in words (though it's usually tough haha) what about an art piece really grabs ahold of me. 

The metallic finish does look very good, but I could see how someone would still prefer the Matte version just cause it really seems a lot to do with taste as well.  From a bit of research, apparently the Metallic finish doesn't work so well with prints that have a very high White color tone value/contrast.  I guess if something is too white within an image for that type of print, it becomes bleed looking in that area and reflects too heavily back or something along those lines.  Though since the contrast in the Zelda piece lean towards an Ivory white, it came out wonderfully.  If you don't mind I'd love to take a picture sometime for you once I get the final frame for it.  :)

Thanks again as well to you for YOUR own kindness haha, it means just as much to me to receive a friendly and kind message back from you!  Wish you luck on your future works, and also wanted to thank you for adding me to your watchlist and especially for donating to me a Llama!  ;D  <3

I honestly didn't know any of that about the metallic finish. From anything I've read it just sounds like a more ultra-glossy finish but RB doesn't really define what they mean by "metallic". dA's three different finishes - Matte, Lustre, and Glossy - are ones I'm definitely familiar with, but in comparison to RB I just haven't been sure. Your info and description of "metallic" is wildly more helpful than any info RB has offered. :D

I'd actually love it if you took a photo. :worship: I've only seen photos of products from three other people, all of whom I know personally and could talk to at length about the items; seeing a photo of a framed print would be a first, though. ;) So if you do take a photo ever? I'd be beyond grateful to see it. :nod:

As I replied on your actual profile, you're quite the multi-faceted artist yourself and we have a slew of shared interests/commonalities so adding you to my watchlist was a given. ;) You deserve more than a watch/llama for your feedback and support but it's the least I could do! :love:
