Frequently Asked Questions

What do you use to make your images?


I use a combination of tools currently including Poser 7, Vue 6 Pro Studio, Carrara 6 Pro, and Photoshop CS2.

Previously I have used Poser 6, Carrara 5, and Vue 5 Espirit.

Do you take requests?


Update 8/7/06: Requests are currently closed due to significant backlog.

Sometimes. If I'm in the mood and it's something I feel capable of taking on. It also depends on how far behind I am on previous requests. It never hurts to ask. :)

Did you make these characters?!


With a few exceptions, yes. I love to make my own characters (using Victoria 3 or Aiko as as base) so that my images bring something unique to the table that you can't find anywhere else. The only characters not created entirely by me are:

Max (Head from Rianne by Thorne and Handspan Studios from DAZ3D.com used as a starting point)
"The Last Forest Elf Princess" (Entirely Niki Nymphling from Wyrmmaster, no longer available)

That leaves my five colored beauties, Daru, Oola, Rena, Ciel, and Lana. These five were all created by me entirely with the V3 libraries and the body deformers from Wyrmmaster's packags.

Kaiya and Shina were created from Victoria 4.2.

Where did that clothing/texture/prop/etc. come from?


If you have a question about a specific item, please don't hesitate to ask me. The majority of the items come from the Renderosity Marketplace or DAZ3D. I used to have links to my favorite vendors listed, but some of them now contain content I don't feel comfortable offering a general link to here.

Addtionally, the Twi'lek headtails that I currently use come from the http://www.philc.net free stuff archive.

Can I use your art for <insert something here>?


I'm normally accommodating to such requests, but please ask me for permission before using my images for signatures, avatars, whatever, etc.

However, I never permit my artwork to be used by others for commercial gain in any way. Additionally the following uses are not permitted:

Any relation to pornographic/hentai websites
Advertising for businesses, virtual or real
"Tubing"
Image Collection Archives for distribution

If you notice my artwork being used in any of these methods or in any other manner that seems suspicious, I beg of you to notify me immediately. All reports will be kept confidential.

Hey I saw your art at <some sleazy website>!


If you see my artwork posted uncredited (i.e. w/o a link back to my website) at a website, please let me know.

Why? Well, I prefer not to watermark my images b/c I believe it detracts from them. This however does place me at a bit of a disadvantage in combating theft. Thankfully I have not had a problem with this, yet.

If you want my images to remain watermark free, so that they may be enjoyed in full w/o any distractions, please help me out in this regard.

Update 12/19/06: While I have started to watermark some of my works because of these types of problems, I would still greatly appreciate any alerts to this kind of thievery.

Update 3/16/08:

Why don't you make images of male characters?


Well, for starters I'm a guy. I would rather spend my time working on a hot girl than a dude. I have built up an extensive library of materials to work with over the past few years. Almost none of it carries over to male characters (unless you want to see guys in miniskirts and high heels), so I'd effectively be building my library from scratch again. That is why even though great new models like Miki and Victoria 4.2 have come out, I still work mostly exclusively with Victoria 3.0. That's slowly changing.

Plus, I think the base Victoria 3.0 is fairly ugly and I enjoy the challenge of making her beautiful.

One of these days though, don't be too surprised if you find a huge badass Jedi dude posted or something.
