This section is ever-growing and will be added to over time. If you have a question that isn’t answered here, please don’t hesitate to email me and ask.
- Can I use your art on my website/mousepad/poster/wall etc?
While I do not permit my artwork to be used for free on any other websites, products or the like, I do welcome you to inquire about licensing my art for a fee for various purposes—be it promo art for your website or event, or to be used on products. Alternatively, you may either commission me for some custom art for your purposes, or you may purchase artwork on products or as prints through my official Etsy shop.
- May I use your artwork in an article I am writing in reference to fantasy art, artists or art techniques?
Yes, I am happy to have you feature my art in an article so long as it falls under fair use (e.g. educational or demonstrative, not for profit), and so long as the artwork is properly credited to me (a link back to my site is optional but appreciated ). Watermarks must not be removed from the artwork if used in this way.
- How do you produce your art?
While I still work traditionally when drawing or conceptualizing an idea, currently the majority of my colour work is produced directly in Photoshop, Painter or Illustrator (or a combination).
- Is it still art if you use a computer to do it?
Absolutely! The computer doesn’t do all of the work for you when you wish to paint digitally. While you may use certain shortcuts to make the process go more easily, the same can be said for other real media applications. For my paintings, I utilize techniques that are more or less indistinguishable from the traditional methods of painting; every brush stroke and detail is applied one stroke at a time, layering and blending colours together for a more authentic and organic look. The best part about using the computer is that there’s nothing to set up, and no mess to clean up afterwards!
