I've been getting quite a few questions lately and instead of answering the same questions over and over I've decided to do an F.A.Q. If you have any questions that haven't been answered here respond to this thread with them. General FAQ
Q: Do you take requests or art trades?
A: I generally do not accept requests or art trades. While I understand that people would like there charcters drawn or see my approach to a certain commercial character, I don't have the time to take art trades. I also find accepting these would be unfair to anyone who commissions me, since they are paying good money. Please don't send me notes asking about requests or trades. If you really want me to draw something for you I am available for commissions. [link]
