I figured that this was going to have come eventually. Basically this is a combination art usage guideline post and a "FAQ" of sorts.


Please read first before continuing to the rest of my journal/galleries.

Art Usage Guidelines

-Don't steal.
-Do not try to sell my fanarts in any form.
Sort of obvious.

-Permission, when given, is only for the fanart. Original characters etc. that I create are to stay on my LJ and go no further please.

-If you'd like to use my fanarts on your website please ASK first and get my permission (e-mail, lj comment, or AIM.). I don't bite, and I almost always say "yes". Do not just take and post up without asking permission. Please credit me and link back to my DA gallery. (http://wynahiros.deviantart.com)

-Regarding icons, you don't have to ask if you can use my fanart for them, just make sure you credit me in the keywords.









Frequently Asked Questions

Can you draw such and such for me?
I'm sorry, but I'm afraid not. I don't do requests anymore. Unless you're a close friend (online or offline), or I asked for ideas or otherwise offered to do a picture for you myself.

I do commissions however.

Commissions?
Basically you pay me for drawing. Prices vary on difficulty/complexity/medium and how much time it takes me. Sketches are obviously cheapest. To find out more about it, it's best to contact me by e-mail or on AIM for it.

More detailed information about it and the process can be found here.

That post also marks if commissions are open or closed currently.

Do you sell originals?
Not that much. Dealing with the post office is too risky when it comes to damaged or lost art. It's also much quicker to deliver a digital copy.

I have this comic/video game/book idea idea that I'd really like illustrated. I can't promise any pay right now, but if it gets successful in the future---?
No thank you.

Can I use your line-art as a practice for coloring?
Ask me first please. I'll probably say yes.

Will you friend me back on LJ?
I don't always friend back. This is partially because I'd like to keep my f-list somewhat manageable. Also I view the friends-list feature on LJ much like that on DeviantART - basically a kind of devwatch system at best. So it's nothing personal if I don't friend back, just some more practical matters.

What kind of materials do you use?
2b-8B pencils. I'm currently using Painter IX, Photoshop and Wacom tablet for computer coloring.

Can you teach me?
I'm still learning myself, so I'd be a terrible teacher. There's others far more qualified for that than me.



Hope this cleared things up a bit. If you have any questions etc, please leave me a comment.

It's a pity common sense is so uncommon (and thus that you had to spend time compiling this you could have spent drawing.)

Oops. I did save a few of your Frodo pics on disks. Sorry. They were for personal ogling though, never posted anywhere! If you want I'll delete them and just bookmark your posts instead.

*sheepish*

Oh no, see, that's fine. Don't worry about stuff like that. I mean, personal use like that is cool by my book.

Hello! I've been looking through your DA account and wanted to tell you that I love your artwork and have friended you if that's alright. I also wanted to ask you if I may use some of your art in LJ Layouts, giving credit to you in my userinfo.

I was wondering if you have posted on Library or moria. I am trying to find the picture I think was yours- it was not bombadil - but a frodo/sam.

I do recall sending in a few stuff to Library of Moria, but I don't know if they ever put any of it up.

Hi! Thank you very much!

I'm a recent comer to the FFX arena: I'm a bit late to the party since the game and the PS2 were Famira's, so I only recently got to borrow it. *SO MUCH TIDUS LOVE ZOMG* <333

I know that this is so off topic, but, can you give me a link to your shelob picture? I saw it the other day, and then I wanted to show my friend, and then I couldn't find it!

I've been using this for so long- I hope I did ask permission - for this icon rocks socks. How do I credit using keywords?

Date: 2006-01-10 02:37 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] wyna-hiros.livejournal.com
You don't need permission if you want to use my stuff as icons. To credit, just put it in the keywords or comments of the icon, like "artwork by wyna_hiros", basically.

Friending a fellow Cid/Vin fan was required. (Do you know K. Haruka? If you don't - although, I bet you do - check her out, NOW.)

I found you through the Residentevil4_ community-- your fanart is amazing, and I was even more excited to look through the rest of the stuff on your journal/DA account.

This doesn't really pertain to using your art, but would you mind me adding you to my friends list? :}

Hallo, I've stalked your art about the interweb and I've always been afraid to comment, because I don't want to be a pest.

I'm working on a site, Shinra-Electric-Co.Net (http://www.shinra-electric-co.net), and I would really enjoy it if I could feature your work for the shrines that will go up to Vincent's Monsters.

As you can see, the main skin and the Scarlet Shrine isn't up yet, but my goal is to have those things running by the end of the month and add a new shrine every few months or so. I'll let you know, of course, when the other shrines go up. Thank you for sharing your art with us, I always enjoy seeing your work.

Thank you also, for your time
