HEY! Shitty excuse for FAQ post page thing!
Since I'm hardly on anymore and people like asking questions that are time-sensitive, I figure this should help alleviate some time pressures and get people on their ways.
CAN I USE YOUR ART FOR A MANGA/MAGAZINE/TATTOO/PENDANT/OC/ETC?
Short answer is yes, but restrictions apply (See next paragraph). If you want it as a tattoo, just go for it. No problem. Nor is it a problem if you use my art on OC's or blogs or whatever. All I ask is for a link to either my page or the deviation (Tattoo people: You don't need to tattoo a URL with the array. But if you do, you get extra Notshurly Points!)
I will not allow it if you intend to sell the product and my artwork is the only thing that is distinguishing about. If that's the case, talk to me first and we can work something out. I'm not trying to dip into your profits. I just think you better have a damn good reason for selling my art on another medium. It can be and has been done. It just requires my blessing.
CAN YOU MAKE ME A CUSTOM ARRAY FOR (insert reason here)?
Short answer is no. I don't do custom arrays any more. I also won't do it if you pay me (unless you pay me, like, a lot. Or with real money. dA points don't buy bread.)
WHEN'S THE BLACK BOOK COMING OUT?
I've been postponing it because I'm an asshole who can't take five fucking minutes a day to throw words on a computer screen. Seriously? I know. Ass. Hole.
That being said, I will be still be seeing it to completion. I don't want to let all you gorgeous people down. IT WILL BE FREE!!! And it will be in ebook (read "PDF") format. I don't want money for it. That's dumb. I've wasted to much of your time making you wait. And you'll still have to wait a bit. Once I make sure I've answered all the questions I can, I'll finish it.
WHERE DID YOU LEARN ABOUT ALCHEMY? SOURCES?!
A vanished artist and his tutorials where the first main source. He is gone (or was last time I checked), but I think his tutorials still exist. I also based my first few tutorials off of his. Exxos, I think, was his name. I also learned from studying FMA arrays and fixing what was fundamentally wrong with them (they tossed shapes together, I went it more depth in my designs).
DO ANY OF YOUR ARRAYS WORK?! HOW CAN I GET THEM TO WORK?!
No. Just, no. Stop. I wish they did work, but they don't. That doesn't mean designs wouldn't work, it just means that we live in plan of existence were matter cannot be controlled by lines. It sucks, but it's just how it is.
CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT THIS ARRAY (insert some array either you or some other person did) DOES?!
No, and I swear to God is you message me on facebook with another array that you didn't draw that you think you're some expert on, I will block you!
I could probably figure out what an array somewhat does, but there's no way I can get to the detail of the original creator of the array. I appreciate seeing some arrays, but please stop trying to impress me with arrays you found on Google. Especially when you can barely speak coherent English....
WAIT, THIS ISN'T HOW THE ARRAY SHOULD WORK! SCIENCE SAYS OTHERWISE! YOU'RE WRONG!!!
Wow, can you please go away? Look, some of my arrays were done back when I didn't completely understand how some scientific process works. Besides, if you really wanna play this game, I will hardcore critique /your/ arrays and will try my hardest to make you cry. Thanks for pointing out my array isn't accurate, don't expect me to reply because I probably already know and likely addressed it.
If you have any other questions, feel free to send me a note or just drop a comment somewhere. I'll get to it eventually.
