Hi! I decided to create a new, fresh thread to host my FAQ in. The other one was old and also quite a mess.

 

In this FAQ I've combined common questions I received on this website as well as a few others (when relevant). It's mainly just a time saver since I don't have to repeat myself and people who are interested will find an answer much quicker than by waiting for me to reply to PM. That's generally it!

 

DNR follows in the next post.

This is a FAQ, meaning that all the questions answered have been asked a couple or more times and I'm just saving both myself and others some time, I hope.
 
 
Art:
 
Q: What is your art setup?
A: I use Procreate on an iPad Pro. Photoshop on my pc for editing.
 
Q: Will you draw me a thing?
A: I no longer take requests through the forums, but you can try discord. I'm slow though.
 
Q: But I want some art now!
A: Click here for my commission info. 
 
Q: I really want a drawing but I don't want to pay.
A: Please click here for a solution.
 
Q: Can we do an art trade?
A: Possibly! It really depends, I don't have much time and don't want to leave people hanging, so it can take a LONG time. I will not be offering trades through the forums.
 
Q: Can you help me with editing?
A: Edits as in 'turning character A into character B'? No, sorry, that's too cringy. If it's just PS editing tricks like lighting & colours and stuff, yeah!
 
Q: Where did you get the banner template?
A: I made it. If you want to use it to make your own for whatever website, drop me a PM. I don't need credit or anything.
 
Q: Can I use your work for reference, edits or otherwise trace/redraw it?
A: Drop me a message and ask. For recolours it's a hard no though, because they require no skill to make and are just art theft with extra steps.
 
Q: Can I repost your work?
A: Yeah sure. Please don't post any of my stuff on pinterest though. That site is such garbage.
 
Q: Why don't you post in my art request/trade/contest threads? Is my art bad?
A: Nooo! If I haven't posted it means I either haven't seen it, I simply don't like the rules, or I just don't understand the post. I also block some awful places like pinterest entirely so any embed through those end up as broken images for me.
Regarding trade threads, I'm not interested if it has a list of rules to begin with.
 
Q: What brushes do you use?
A: The default ones. Mostly the square painting brush.
 
Q: Will you be opening another art request thread?
A: I'd love to but it's very unlikely.
 
Q: Can I request art elsewhere instead?
A: I'll occasionally offer to draw stuff in the SoD Discord.
 
 
Etc:
 
 
Q: Where are you from?
A: I'm from the Netherlands. 
 
Q: What do you do?
A: I'm a computer- and embedded engineer of sorts.
 
Q: Can you help me fix my game?
A: No... Contact support maybe?
 
Q: Why does your typing style change so often?
A: Context, paralanguage, mood, drugs, idk.
 
Q: Your words seem serious and/or intimidating. Did I do something wrong?
A: I guess it's because I generally don't do that roleplay/exaggeration/mood slash command thing. Don't worry about it.
 
Q: Do you want to roleplay with me?
A: I'm always up for tabletop/P&P. Drop me a message! I'm familiar with the (A)D&D 2e, 3.5e, Pathfinder, CyberPunk 2020 (and older), Dark Heresy, Paranoia and Traveller systems, and I don't mind learning something new! 18+ only because I'm old and would only like to play with fellow olds.
 
Q: Where else can I find you?
A: Check out the links in my signature. You can also find me in the SoD discord, or PM me for my discord #. I play WoW retail and classic, PM me for info.
 
Q: Do you own the SoD Discord server?
A: No. The server is owned by Nessie. I'm just a jannie.

I edited an older post w/ an update because I assumed it wouldn't bump the thread and change the posting date, but apparently I was super wrong.

I'll be opening requests again soonish ;)

The Q&A is normally for quesions, but digital art is art created with digital technology as opposed to traditional art, which is created without the aid of technology.

Hey, welcome to my signature. I don't have much, like to keep it simple.

(Thunder, by Katarile. TYSM)

 

Thunderbird is a very strong and fearless character. She sails the skies with her trusted dragon, Smugde, and touches the seas with her heart. Her father was a sailor of the Løken tribe on an island called Kalfa. Boats have always been a big part of Thunder's life and adventuring is natural to her. In fact, she lives to travel and explore. She never stays in one place for to long because she believes there's to much she hasn't seen. She is fierce, intelligent and an excellent strategist. She loves to learn and is quick to learn it. She can find her way out of tight spots with ease. She is also an excellent axemen. She is swift, agile and flexible. You'll most often see her training on a large sea stack while Smugde either plays with any animal or dragon nearby or sleeping in the shade. She is very adaptable and fairly easygoing, yet, she does have a temper and is not afraid to show it. She will storm off or even give you the silent treatment if you make her really angry. She does not trust easily but will be loyal and kind if you earn it. Dragons trust her relatively quickly with the help of her Hobblegrunt who is kind to all species of dragons as long as they are fairly kind to him. But he does not trust people as easily. in fact, he does not trust people at all. It took Thunderbird two years to earn his full trust. Now they are in separable, they fly in the sky and touch the seas with their hearts, as one.
