And Now A FAQ
Archive Your Art?
MAYBE. You must e-mail me and ask first. I reserve the right to control where my art goes, so just because you ask doesn't mean I'll say yes.
Fanart I'm more apt to say yes on then original art.
You may use fanart for LJ Icons. I don't mind, and you don't need to ask. Credit is cool, but I'm not gonna track you down and beat you.
HOWEVER, please do not use my original Horror, fantasy, and personal art for your icons without getting my premission first.
ALSO pleas don't use anything that was a commission.
You can request something, but I most likely won't do it. I really don't have the time. If you want something, commission me.
Most likely no. If I am doing trades, I'll say something on my livejournal.
What Do you Draw With?
I use several media, though my mine ones tend to be marker (I use copic, prismacolor, and Tria Pantone) and watercolor. For my marker pictures, I usually work on smooth btistle board and for my watercolor pieces I usually sue eitehr illustration board or 140 lb Arches watercolor paper.
The main thing I use constantly though is a pencil and a sketch bok. I take those where ever I go.
Who Were Your Influences
Mostly Comic artists like Wendy Pini, Colleen Doran, Jack Kirby, Will Eisner, Al Ailliamson, etc. I was also influenced heavily by the artists George Barr, Virgil Finlay as well as by Classical artists like Rapheal and Carvaggio .
