**(Commissions and Requests are closed until further notice...)**
1. "Can I make icons/avatars/manips/etc of your artwork?"
Sure. It's actually quite flattering when people do so :). The only thing I'd ask is that you ask for permission if you plan to use my artwork for anything big, website layouts, headers, and livejournal backgrounds included. Nine times out of ten, I'll say yes :).
2. "Do you take requests?"
I sure do. When you submit a request, I will reply back to tell you if it's been selected and when you can expect to see it (I wish I could accept all requests, but this is unfortunately a hobby that I do in addition to school and work). In any case, you can send them to me via e-mail, but before you do please review these guidelines:
a) Requests must be limited to the Harry Potter Universe and Canon pairings. This means that I'm perfectly happy to draw characters created by J.K. Rowling in situations that could happen or have already happened in the world that she's written. It is only in rare circumstances that I will take requests for slash (same-sex) fanart and fanon pairings (like Harry/Luna, Ginny/Neville, Hermione/Snape, etc.). If you've REALLY got a hankering for anything that falls into the latter categories, please refer to question #4.
b) You must specify if you prefer the drawing in color or in black and white. Bear in mind that color prints take much longer than pictures drawn in graphite alone.
c) If you are requesting a scene from fanfiction, please submit your request with a link to the story.
So there you have it. Request away!
3. "What mediums do you use?"
My favorite question. I use Prismacolor colored pencils, Faber Castel Artist Pens, and Graphite Pencils. The links go to my favorite brands, which I try to talk up as much as possible because I really enjoy using their stuff.
4. "What's the difference between a request and a commissioned artwork? How do I commission artwork from you?"
Requested artwork not only adheres to the qualifications set above, but it is also free to be downloaded, manipulated, colorized, iconized by others. A commissioned work belongs to you and you alone, matches the qualifications you set forth providing that they stay within the Potterverse, and is subject to a commission rate, as you will be able to keep the final product after it is completed. If you would like to commission artwork from me, e-mail me and we'll discuss rates and any other particulars.
If you've got a question that's not answered above, feel free to contact me. Your feedback is always appreciated :).
