My FAQ!!!

What programs do you use?
I use Paint Tool Sai for almost all my work, and Photoshop Elements 5 for things like blurring, small dots, etc.

What type of tablet do you use?
I use a Wacom Intous Draw, small. It's super lightweight and easy to use! I love it!!

What size canvas do you use?
It depends. Always above 2500. Echelon pages are 3477 x 4500.

Do you sketch on paper, or is it all digital?
I used to always sketch on paper, but now it's almost all digital, but that's only because my scanner doesn't work with my new computer.

Do you ever reference when you draw?
No, not ever. I only ever ref things like colors. I don't have anything against it, I just don't do it, haha.

What order do you draw digitally?
Line art, color, background, shading, details and highlights.

How do you come up with titles?
It's pretty random, actually! You'd be surprised how many start out as "wolfy 002" or "commission lion brown". But mainly, song lyrics.

What tool do you use for your line art?
I use the Pencil/Pen tool in Paint Tool Sai, and I have the stabilizer set on either S-1 or S-2.

What tool do you use for your backgrounds?
I use mainly Brush and Water Color, but I occasionally use Airbrush or pencil. depends on whether it's a cel shaded bg or a painted one.

How do you do your eyes?
I use a soft brush, and some small pencil pinpricks of really bright colors. :) (Smile)

How long does it take for you to do a piece?
Anything between 2 hours and 17. Echelon pages usually take 3-4.

Where did you learn to draw?
I'm fully self-taught!!! Though I did take an art history class for one semetser.

How long have you been drawing?
Ever since I could hold a pencil!!! But I only started digital art maybe 2-3 years ago. Basically 8 months before I joined here.

What is your favorite traditional media?
Watercolors, and Oils, although I suck at both.

Do you answer comments/ replies?
YES, I always answer all of my comments, replies, and notes. It may take me a day or two with replies, but I always reply. I love this community, and if someone takes the time to comment, I owe a reply!

How often do you stream?
I try to stream every 2-3 weeks, though I have done them by commissioner request too.

Can you teach me how to draw?
As flattering as it is, I cannot. Drawing is something that has to come from the heart. If I try to tutor you, it will be a mimic of my own art. Find your own style! I do not mind at all giving tips/ brush settings though. :D (Big Grin)

Do you take requests?
Sorry, no, I do not. I will never take requests.

Do you take commissions?
I do! My prices will be updated soon.

When will you open commissions? What type will they be?
I'm planning on opening them officially soon! And right now, only point 'mishes.

Can we do an art trade?
Art trades... They used to be fun! But now, I do have rules for them. Not many, but some. You can always ASK me for one. I don't mind that at all! BUT if you bring it up, you ask, you have to finish your half first. I've been screwed over too many times to finish mine first. I'm sorry, but I don't want to waste time doing something that basically becomes free art.

Can I draw Fan Art for you?
Absolutely!!! I simply adore Fan Art, and I'd love it if you posted it on my profile page, too!!! I find it absolutely mind-blowing that people draw fan art for me, haha.

I really like your characters, can I use them in RPing?
Unfortunately, no. My characters are my babies, and I like them where I can see them. They are also each special to me, and I don't want them to be posted all over the web. Please do not use them. That includes Echelon characters.

Can I use your art for my avatar/forum/youtube video?
Sadly, the answer for this is also no, for the reasons above.

Can I use your characters as a cameo in my story/comic?
That depends. Sarny, Montgomery, Bruce, etc- ask me. I probably will say yes. Please note me privately, and we can discuss it further. Echelon, yeah, go for it. Just credit me, please!

Can I be your friend?
Friendship is something that happens over time. One cannot simply "be my friend". I see all my lovelies as "friends". But true friendship takes time.

What prompted you to join DeviantArt?
I wasn't a member for maybe 5 years, but we're coming up on our 3rd year anniversary!

What do you like more when you upload a new deviation: Critiques, Constructive criticism, or just praise?
Constructive criticism. Critiques I feel can be a little biased, depending on who gives them, and of course I love absolute praise (who doesn't?) But it helps me improve so much to have constructive, honest criticism.

What's your favorite time for making art?
The evenings, definitely. I feel really productive at night. That's why I usually answer comments ate night too.

So, about Echelon... How long will it be?
Right now, about 5-6 "books" each about 100-120 pages.

Who inspires you IRL?
My family is really encouraging, also, I'm a huge fan of many Letsplayers. My favorites are Jacksepticeye, the Game Grumps, Cryaotic, and Thomas Sanders.

What games inspire you?
SO many! the Uncharted series, Bloodborne, Undertale, Okami, Tales from the Borderlands, Skyrim, The Last Guardian, Shadow of the Colossus, Inside, and many, many, many more. I love video games. Heart

What movies inspire you?
I love movies, so I'm inspired by many movies. But here are some of my favorites- LotR's trilogy, Avatar, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, TLK, Balto, Treasure Planet, Zootopia , Bolt, The Princess Bride, Aliens, Mulan, Finding Nemo, WOlf Children: Ame and Yuki, Summer Wars, The Shining, and more~

What TV shows inspire you?
Stranger Things, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Wolf's Rain, Cowboy Bebop, and Attack on Titan.

What Books inspire you?
Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Book of Lost Things, and James Herriot books. There are more too, but I can't think of them right now

What music do you like/ who is your musical idol?
I enjoy alt rock, 80's music, 90's music, and comedy. The bands I follow actively are Thirty Seconds to Mars, Ninja Sex Party, and All American Rejects.

Where do you stand on the controversy regarding LGBT rights?
I think that all people should be respected and treated with kindness, regardless of sexuality. We're all people at the end of the day, and judging someone just because of something as silly and personal as sexuality is self-defeating and pointless. So I don't really have a side, but I think we should all be respected, and sexuality shouldn't be regarded. It's personal, ya know?

How old are you?
I'm 18 years old now!

How many languages do you speak?
English and Japanese! 日本語 で 話してください!私 は 新しい友達 に 作る の が すきです。

The Lion King: Echelon FAQ!!!

So I've been getting a few questions about TLK: E and I wanted to answer them in a FAQ! I hope this clears some stuff up for you!
How many "Parts" will this comic have?-Right now, I have about 6-7 planned.What will these parts consist of?-Part one is what we're in right now. It takes place right around the same time of Uru's birth. Part 2 is going to be about how Ahadi met UruPart three is Taka's storyPart four is about Scar's reignPart 5 is about Simba's return, through to the end of TLK 2 (hopefully)
Part 6 is planned to be about Kiara and Kovu's reign. That's all I've planned to doHow long will each "part" be?-It really depends. I am not planning to have more than 120-130 pages, but no less than 90 per comic. It really depends on how the story progresses.
Will you feature any cameo's in your comic?-YES!!! I've already confirmed one, but I want to have more than that!Can my character be in your comic-I'm... no

Part I- Best Intentions
Part II- Heart and Soul

Hello there! :wave: I am an artist who has a passion for art, video games, and movies. I am the author of The Lion King fan comic, Echelon. I am planning another fully original story as well.

I'm an animal-lover, I have a particular fondness for dogs. I'm involved in Dog-showing, and I show my own rough collies. :-)

I am a total nerd as well. :love: I actively follow several Youtubers, and some I would even say inspire me to be a better person. I love video games, movies, anime, manga, and books.

I'm a friendly person, and I always answer comments. I love to talk to people, so never be afraid to approach me! I'm very open and I don't mind random comments or notes!

Please, feel free to critique my work, I'm always looking for advise!

Thanks for dropping by!

Thanks for faving my camel portrait. I still feel queasy from riding one in the Dubai desert.
