I GOT MY IMAAAAAAAAAC a while ago. It's great and sexy and shiny and omg so expensive. But at least I got myself a nice working comp ^___^
Anyway, on to this journal's subject. I have compiled all the questions people often ask me into a FAQ. I'm posting it here and I'll post it on my website later
If you'd like to add questions, just ask in the comments. ABOUT MY ARTHow long have you been drawing ?
Eeeeer.... I have always liked drawing but I only started doing it seriously when I was around 13. At the time it was mostly copying anime pictures that I liked so I guess I really started doing things on my own at 14.What tools do you use ?
I sketch on print paper or in my sketchbook with your average mechanical pencil. Then I scan the sketch and ink/color it in photoshop with an intuos tablet.
You don't want to know how I handle traditional tools because I'm so messy it's laughable.Do you draw males ? There are only girls in your gallery
I like drawing girls better than males. I do draw males, but mainly for commissions. When I draw them for myself they usually remain at the sketch step XDDo you take requests/accept art trades ?
Nope, sorry.Do you take commissions ?
There's a forum post on Deviant Art that lists my main offers here : [link]
And there are details on my conditions on my website : [link]
(go in the "store" section).I see that you ask for upfront payment. How about you make a sketch and I pay you the whole amount afterwards ?
No, I have decided to be unflexible about payment. Every time someone has asked, I've been cheated, so please don't bother asking.Do you sell stuff ?
Yes, I sell stuff on various websites. You can buy prints on Deviant Art here : [link]
or goodies at my CafePress here : [link]
If you're French, you can also purchase many other goods at Absylia : [link]You should really draw anime
My style is what it is Can you make a tutorial ?
I don't think I'm so great that I could make a useful tutorial. I still consider myself a beginner and you don't want a tut from someone who still has so much to learn
If you browse DA a little you'll find tutorials about everything you could dream of ABOUT THE USE OF MY ART :Can I use your art to make icons/wallpapers/whatever ?
Sorry but no, I don't allow this kind of use of my paintings (unless you commissioned the painting you're talking about). In both cases you can't make profit from my art.Can I color your linearts ?
Yes, as long as you credit me for the lineart
If you post it on DA please note me, I'll add it to my favorites I saw your picture posted somewhere by someone else
My only nickname is Holly Bell and my only galleries are at DA, Elfwood and my website, so this is most likely an art thief. Please contact me if you come across someone doing this, or, even better, contact the admin of the site to help me have my pics removed.ABOUT MY FANCOMIC "WISHES : A GOBLIN TALE" :Do you have a fanfic along the comic ?
No, the whole of the story is exclusively for the comic.Do you update frequently ?
I think I do. I do my best to, at least. I could update more frequently but I'm not fond of posting the comic one page per one page and most people seem to think the same.Will there be a happy ending for Jareth and Sarah ?
Come on, you wouldn't want me to spoil all the fun and tell the end now I love the goblins, did you have any model ?
I inspire myself a lot from Froud's books but I try to invent my own designs. I just don't feel comfortable copying Your comic is so awesome, can you draw my comic too ?
Sorry but no. As much as I'd like to give life to every Labyrinth story, it's just not possible. I don't even think my art is that great.How many chapters will there be ?
To be honest, I have no clue. I do draw a storyboard but I don't make it too far ahead. I do know where the story is heading though, don't worry OTHER :How do you [insert random question here] ?
It's incredible the number of people who seem to think I'm Deviant Art's FAQ oO Come on people, the FAQ is just a clic away and will give you more information on DA and how to use it than I could ever give you.Can you make my website ?
No, even if I wanted to I couldn't. I didn't even build mine, my boyfriend did
I know nothing about html, php or whatever so really, you'd be wasting your time with me XDHow old are you ?
I was born in 1987.Do you go to art school ?
As much as I'd love to, no I don't.
Also, just thought I'd advertize my bro's account. He's on DA too, here :
That'd be nice if you could have a look ^__^
Want to help make the world a better place ? Buy prints ! XD
