PLEASE READ BEFORE COMPLAINING
Over time, I have gotten several questions that were asked so often that I felt the need to write this up. As much as I love answering questions, please refer to this FAQ before you ask me something! If you ask a question that is on this FAQ, I will literally just tell you to read this. So read up before you start typing.
What art program/tablet do you use? What fonts? Brushes?!?!
I use Photoshop CS5 for a majority of my artwork/gifs. I sometimes use Pencil, MSPaint, and online art programs. As for tablet, I use Wacom Intuos3
For fonts I generally use some variety of "Century Gothic". But in my comics I use "Anime Ace" for speech bubbles and "Gills Sans MT" for titles.
This is my brush setting for lineart: [LINK]
What size are your nuzlocke comics?
I don't have a set length but I do set the comic width to be 700 px wide. Length can vary from 7000-10000px. And some comics I go by paper dimensions. Sadly the dpi for the comic files are not print-size...
How long does it take to draw your comics/art/etc?
Doodles usually take a few minutes.
Nuzlocke comics take 5-7 days (provided I take about 5 hours a day to work on the strip). Artwork can vary from 1-6 hours or more.
During med school though, I barely have time to get in even an hour of drawing so...it might take weeks to produce a comic strip.
Can you draw something for me? Art trade?
Unless I feel like it and you are a close friend, I will NOT take any requests. This also applies to trades. I rarely take many of these because I simply do not feel like drawing them (there are also trades that are never fulfilled, etc). But I DO take commission fairly reliably.

Please give me some art/comic tips?
I am not sure if I am well-versed to do this but...for the most part my tumblr's tutorial tag might help you a bit. If you already had read that...here's are some other tips.
Can I critique your work?
You are always free to provide me any feedback on any of my drawings (be as harsh as you like). Just comment or send a note and I definitely will consider them.
THIS DOES NOT MEAN I WILL WRITE A REPLY TO EVERY CRIT I GET. But be assured that I have read them at some point and will try to use it in future works. Unless I really feel like a work is really really flawed and unviewable, I will not redraw it. (I occasionally delete works off my gallery however).
I always strive to improve, even if the progress does not show immediately.
I want to be your friend!
Talk to me regularly, be friendly and patient. I am more than open to conversation and willing to be friends with almost anyone.
What is Nuzlocke?
Look here [LINK]
Do you play nuzlocke via cartridge or emulator? If emulator, what kind and where can I get the roms?
I play all my nuzlockes on an emulator, generally I go for Desmume. (I used No$GBA for Diamond and the rest on Desmume)
As for finding the ROMs, I usually get them through friends. For instance, my White game was given to me via an expired megaupload link. But TBH just look through the torrent sites for the ROMs.
Give me some Nuzlocke game/comic tips!
For game tips, check this thread: [LINK]
For drawing tips, just refer to the previous art tip question before.
Can you add more [IDK SHIPPING/CHARACTERS/OTHER THINGS] in the comic??
No, I already have the script planned out and I do not plan to change it.
Can I draw/write about your ocs/nuzlocke characters? Or cameo them in my comic?
Please do it! And link it to me so I can see it...I really appreciate when people draw my characters.
Do you script the Nuzlocke while you play or after you finish?
I do all the plot stuff AFTER I finish playing.
Which Nuzlocke runs do you read/follow?
I have not read a lot of runs recently so I cannot really recommend any off my head...just search the nuzlocke forums and I guarantee you will find something you'd like.
Do you plan to do a _____ Nuzlocke?
No idea. I'll announce a new run or whatever when I feel like it. I have PLAYED more nuzlockes than draw them out but I am not sure if I want to draw all of the nuzlockes I have played.
Can I be cameo'd???
I do not do cameo requests (unless I state it in my journal). Please stop asking.
WHY U NOT UPDATE FAST ENOUGH???
.......read this and leave.
Oh your a med student? What do you want to be?
I personally get really annoyed by this question because I DON'T KNOW. I will probably let you guys know if I ever decide on a practice.
