Frequently Asked Questions
Is this digital or traditional?
I worked in traditional mediums for years before I began exploring digital painting in 2013, so it's not surprising one has influenced the other. My digital art is created using Photoshop and a Wacom Intuos. I sometimes also use Corel Painter and Mandelbulb 3D (a fractal generating program).
Most of my traditional work now is graphite or watercolor, but I do create originals based off my digital paintings. These large pieces are one of a kind artworks, on canvas or fine art paper, usually framed. They are a mix of digital, acrylic and sometimes other mediums. I only sell one piece like this, a specific size too, as the original. Originals are sold through my Store, the Changeling Artist Collective, Conventions and occasionally Gallery Shows. My large originals are often reserved for convention art shows.
Graphite was my first love. There’s something very satisfying about picking up and pencil and bringing something to life on a sheet of paper. My paper of choice is Stillman & Birn Zeta Series. I’ve used a lot of different pencils over the years. My current favorites are Tombow Mono100’s. I occasionally play with powered graphite, graphite in mechanical pencils and watersoluble graphite too.
What brand of Gold Pigment do you use?
I prefer Kremer Gold Watercolor. It comes in a pan. They have a few different golds, this is one the I use: IRIODIN® 300 GOLD PEARL, Colibri Gold.
Where's your Bird Whisperer Art?
My art for the Bird Whisperer Project is a mix of sketches, drawings and finished paintings. Some pieces are NFS. If it's a digital painting, you'll find prints in my store. The best way to purchase a traditional piece is to follow our page and contact me. We post new art on the last Wednesday of the month.
Do you take commission requests?
I’m open for book cover illustration and gaming illustration. I will occasionally accept personal commissions as time permits. You can email your project and/or ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I love your Alchemy drawings. Do you ever design tattoos like these?
Yes! I will create a little alchemy just for you. Get in touch with me for more details: email@example.com.
What is the difference between Open Edition and Limited Edition Prints?
All of my prints are produced by a professional printer using archival quality inks and paper. Limited Editions are numbered/signed and limited to a specific run of prints (25, 50, 200, etc). These prints ship from my studio to you.
Open Editions are printed with the same inks, but on a standard matte paper. These prints are not hand signed and they ship directly from my printer.
I recommend framing my prints to protect them and prolong their life. You should refrain from placing them in direct sunlight, heat or humid environments.
How long will it take to receive my order?
Orders are shipped in 7-10 days. Once shipped most domestic orders take anywhere from 2 to 10 business days to arrive depending on the efficiency of your local postal service.
Do you accept orders placed outside the US?
International orders are not available through my shop, but you can contact me directly to discuss placing an order.
What if my order arrives damaged?
If your order arrives damaged please contact me within 14 days. You can send photos of damaged artwork and packaging to firstname.lastname@example.org. Prints can be replaced!
