FAQ

The following are the questions I receive most frequently. If you have a question not answered here, please email me.

Q: Do you take free illustration requests?
A:  Nope, sorry.

Q:  Can I commission a sketch/illustration/logo/etc.?
A:  Absolutely!  My general terms and pricing can be found here.

Q:  Can I use your art for my book/product/web graphics/etc.?  Is your art available for licensing?
A:  Most of my work is available for licensing through Art Licensing International.  You can contact them for pricing and useage terms.  If you are interested in using an image that does not appear in my ALI gallery, please contact me to discuss availability.  Thank you for your interest!

Q: What art programs do you use?
A: For sketching and inking, I use PaintTool SAI; I love this program and highly recommend it! Besides being cheap (about $60), it has several features that make drawing much easier on my wrists, including a rotating canvas and an amazing lineart tool. For coloring my work (and adding various effects and text), I use Adobe Photoshop CS2. PaintTool SAI is a good coloring program but I find some of the tools harder to control– so I just fall back on Photoshop, as I’m more comfortable with painting in that program.

Q:  What happened to Sabraelle’s Garden?  Do you still make pixel dolls?
A:  I closed Sabraelle’s Garden several years ago because my interest in pixel dolling began to wane and my focus shifted to other artistic mediums.  However, all my dolls and bases can still be found on my pixeling account (Dilli-Dalli) at DeviantArt.
