I tend to disappear from dA for extended periods of time these days. I still check my messages, but don't submit much art anymore. I'm finding that I just don't have enough time these days to sit solidly at the PC for however many hours I need to finish off the sketches I do.
I draw a lot of scalies as I love that I can make them all different colours, add horns, spikes etc. There's just so much variety to them. I also prefer to draw women, as they're more curvy and graceful. I find men too angular, and don't like the results when I try to draw them.
1)Do you do requests/trades/commissions?
Unfortunately not - I used to do commissions, but these days I just don't have enough time for it.
2)Can I have your email/facebook etc?
Nope. Not unless I've known you for a good long while, I'm not giving it to you. I had an incident in 2006 with a wierdo that found me via devart when I still had my msn listed, and I don't want that happening again.
3)What tools do you use?
Well, I sketch my art on paper, then scan it (or take a photo with my iphone if i'm feeling particularly lazy) and do all the lineart and colouring with Photoshop CS5.
I used to have an old Wacom tablet, but upgraded to a Bamboo. It's amusing to know that my cheapo Bamboo is actually better than my old expensive tablet, and larger too.
4)Can I use your artwork/character for such-and-such?
Depends on what you want to use it for. You're free to ask, but I'm not going to guarantee that you can do it. I deal with these requests on a case-by-case basis.
