FAQs - because apparently I need one




Do you do free requests?
- No.

Why? : c
- Because I need money to feed myself. Life as an artist is kind of hard.

Even if I'm one of your dear friends?
- If you are one of my friends, you should know better than asking for something for free. Usually, I'd be happy to shower you with gift-doodles as I see fit.

What about RP groups? I see you do plenty of art for those! D:
- I do those for fun, as stress relieve. I've already cut down on them since I don't have time. Clockhearts is pretty much the only group I'm still keeping up with, the rest are kind of being put in the back burner. I don't mind joining more RP groups/participate in more RPs as long as I won't be pressured to draw. Typing up a few paragraphs is something I'd still have time for.

Hey wanna join my charity artbook? Everything goes into -insert charity fund here-!
- No, unless I get at least a free copy of the artbook myself.

OMG why are you so mean/selfish? D:<
- Sorry, maybe that's why I don't have a lot of friends. : c At the moment, I really can't afford doing anything big for free.

Why are you so busy/what are you working on?
- I'm working on Backstage Pass. We are kind of in a crunch at the moment and I'm pretty much drawing for it from the moment I wake up to the moment I go to bed. So if you don't see me around often, that's why.

What about the old works you own? I've been waiting on my RL commission for 239583 years.
- My deepest apologies on those. I swear I'll get them done!...just not now. I won't be freeing up until the end of the year after I'm done with BP. If you want to ask for a refund, I'll make an exception this time and say you can do that.

Will you join me to work on another game project after BP?
- As long as I get paid immediately, sure. If you try to promise me that you will be sharing royalties and expect me to work for free, no.
For work inquires, feel free to note me or e-mail me at etooaya@gmail.com

I have a question, but I'm sure you are busy so I won't bother you...
- Don't hesitate, I won't bite! (probably) I try to answer all my notes if I see the need to answer them as soon as possible. If you have any questions, feel free to ask via note or on tumblr.

I was at AX and bought the Haru and Rei bookmarks (they're gorgeous!). I wasn't able to buy the print 'Alternate Prince' but I wanted to let you know that I absolutely love your art. Good luck with all of your future projects!

I saw your art and thought you were familiar then I realized, you made RE: Alistar, one of my favorite visual novels~! 

I was inspired to make visual novels myself and I was wondering if you could help me out.

I'm looking for artists for my visual novels but I am not sure where to look. I've tried deviantART and I can't find anyone. If you have any suggestions, I thank you.

I know you're probably annoyed by all the comments, and I'm being hypocritical for adding another one.
But your art is seriously like some of the best I've seen anywhere.
I'm talking about everything as a whole.
Just 
Wow.
