Since I've noticed that I keep getting the same or similar questions I thought that it was about time I got a FAQ for myself. /*e*/:iconsparklesplz:

Commissions - Closed by SweetDuke No Requests by SweetDuke Trades - Friends Only by SweetDuke Collaborations - Friends Only by SweetDuke Gifts - Friends Only by SweetDuke Kiribans - On Hold by SweetDuke

1. Do you take requests? Nope. I typically only draw for others when I feel like it, not because they ask me.
2. Do you take commissions? Sorry, commissions are currently closed.
3. Do you take art trades? With friends only, if ever.
4. Can you post a tutorial for " "? I'm not really that great with tutorials, though it would probably help you a great deal more to check out the various tutorials I have in my favorites.
5. Can I post your pictures elsewhere? Only if you give credit to me and link back to my DA.
6. Can I use your pictures as an icon/for a fan fiction/as a new character for a role play forum/to make something to sell/some other project? For these things specifically, even if you gave credit I do not want my art to be used as such. ESPECIALLY if the image you wanted to use was one of my original characters, I do not appreciate it, it is not flattering, and I more or less view it as extremely disrespectful to both my character and me as the artist who worked hard to create the character (that last bit is mostly directed to those who would try to use my OCs for their roleplays).
7. Can I make my own characters based off of your own OCs or adoptables, but with this change and that change? I get this question a lot and I don't think people are understanding the difference between being inspired by something and plagiarizing something. Please stop asking me this question, it's like if I wrote an essay for class by doing my own research and forming my own solutions to how it's written, and you came up and asked if it was alright to hand in the same essay, but with a different title. But the content is the same, word for word.

As a rule of thumb, if you feel the need to ask my permission if it would be okay to make a character design for yourself, then what you're asking to make is already likely too similar to what you're drawing "inspiration" from and it becomes copying. Your designs will gain a lot more originality if you take inspiration from multiple unrelated sources rather than a single source that happens to already be someone's unique idea that was executed in a way that appeals to you. Doing that was how I put these characters together in the first place.
8. Can I create my own fan art of your characters? Of course, I'd love to see it as well if it's ever posted~ c:
9. Would you be willing to help with this project I'm working on? No thanks. I've got plenty on my plate already.
10. Would you like to join this group? No thanks. Not unless I was interested in the first place (and I'm really trying to cut down on joining groups because I'm asked OTL).
11. What program do you use to draw? I mainly use Photoshop CS3, from start to finish.
12. What program do you use to animate? I animate using Flash, Photoshop, After effects, or some combination of the three.

That's all I can think of for now, I hope that answers a lot of curious people but if you don't see your question here then shoot me a note or something.

Journal Entry: Tue May 23, 2017, 8:00 PM

It's been so long since I made a journal here omg

I'm sorry everyone aahh ;7;

I've been so busy in the last few months, you guys only see like 20% of the things I work on really. A lot of my time is taken up with making adoptables and doing commissions every month on FA, then a few days are spent each month to do some kind of personal art, whether it's fan art or OC stuff. That's the stuff I've been posting here that you can see, it's on my twitter as well. I haven't forgotten about the OCs like Spades or the Knights of The End masked guys that I was working on either! I said I wanted to be more consistent with my OCs and I meant it but it's been crazy trying to balance everything. That pokemon picture with Blaziken, Empoleon and Decidueye for example, I had been waiting for months to finally have a chance to draw that idea out. I've been meaning to design the Knights' weapons for a long time now, among some other pics I had in mind for them so I hope I can return to that soon. o(-<

Aside from that I had also been working on animations for my portfolio for a few months, as well as new business card art and setting up my demo reel and all kinds of stuff related to that. I went to an animation job fair and had an interview a few weeks ago at a local studio, so I hope I can hear back from them soon. Then amongst all of this, I've been working in little increments on a game with a couple of friends, though unfortunately it's still far too early in development for me to show. I hope I can reveal what it is eventually~ ;v;

So yeah haha, to sum it up I've basically been up to art, art, drawing, animating, designing, arting, ART ART, DRAW DRAW, and maybe a little bit of playing Zelda.

I also wanted to share my portfolio animation work on DA, but it won't let me submit the files since it's not swfs, so here's the links to them on twitter:………

I hope all is well with everyone here too, and thanks for sticking around and following my stuff! qvq

Hello Lanmana! I am terribly sorry to bother you, but I wanted to ask you a small question.

You see, I am trying to get others input and feedback on my art. And see what people like about my art, and what they do not like about my art, and what I am good at "Or as I like to call them my Artistic Strong Points", and what I can try to improve. 0U0

So if you could just take a REAL QUICK look through of my gallery, and give me your input and feedback on my art then I would really appreciate it. ^U^

If you do not want to help then I COMPLETEY understand! I am sure you are very busy and have better things to do! But if you do help me out, then it would be highly appreciated.
