FAQ

:bulletpurple: Q: What software do you use for your work?
A: The only program I use is Adobe Photoshop, currently version CS6 Extended. It was the first program I ever got for myself and I got used to It so much I had no need for any other program since. Currently I use it for both animating and drawing, and it serves me well. As for the tablet I use, it's my good ol' Wacom Intuos.

:bulletpurple: Q: How long does it take to make your animations? How do you make them look so smooth?
A: Everything depends on how complicated the pose and movement is, how many elements move independently in different directions/different speed, if it's on loop or not. Things like that, so it does vary a lot. When I'm in my special animating mood I can animate even 3 seconds per day. One second takes about 14-15 frames, so it's 45 doodles one after another (and in the evening I begin to feel like a machine that someone forgot to turn off.) 14-15 fps for me is enough to have my animations look this smooth. The more frames in between the smoother it will be.
___

:bulletpurple: Q: How did you learn to animate? Who taught you? Did you attend some animation classes?
A: Well, it wasn't easy, you see. I had to make a deal with this big fella in black suit, feed a goat some oreos, sacrifice that goat in my basement, and after four years of doodling crappy things, I managed to make something that actually looked good, and I've been animating only quality stuff ever since.

I graduated from this High School of Arts, however, I never had an animation class in my life. I'm a self taught, never watched any 'how to animate' videos even. Everything I know I learned by observing animation in Disney's Dreamworks' productions, sometimes watching the scene pass f r a m e by f r a m e. It was taking forever, but, I guess you can see in my gallery that it wasn't in vain.
___
:bulletpurple: Q: Are you working for Disney already? Or any other animating company?
A: Nope, I'm not. I really hope to get hired by some animating company in the future though. Animating makes me happy, and if I could make some serious money by being happy, it would be awesome.
___

:bulletpurple: Q: Are you planning on making an animated movie/writing a book, making a graphic novel featuring your characters?
A: Yes, I do. Eriu is the only character of mine I love and hate enough to actually write her story down. We'll see what will come to life first. The book, the comic or the animated movie. Can't decide. The life will probably decide that for me.
___

:bulletpurple: Q: Is Eriu a rp character? Can I roleplay with you?
A: Poke me at evora-eriu-mclaggen.tumblr.com
___

:bulletpurple: Q: Do you do commissions/art trades/requests?
A: Commissions: yes (check the commission status), art trades: with my friends only, requests: nope (unless you want to see more of my own characters, can't never say no to those.)
___

:bulletpurple: Q: Is there any chance you will make some tutorials for your followers?
A: I can be a very patient person when it comes to animating, but explaining stuff to people is too much, sorry... Maybe? Someday?

Eriu book, people! Would you like me to post a couple of chapters online, or you'll be patient and wait until the book is printed?

If only I was paid for being disorganised life would be so much easier, so much simpler.
Okay, time has come to finally post a list of commissions that are yet to be drawn and
once again apologise to all who grow impatient with this potato. New year has begun,
promises were made, and the fact that I was left with so much more than one unfinished
business make me feel like a piece of something nasty. I bow to all the people listed below, 
with shame and great respect, and beg your forgiveness.

:iconskythewolfdog9::iconinkierose::iconarofexdracona::icondragonofthesand::iconwaterdancer::iconucaliptic::iconsen-hime:

I got commissioned by MastersOfAnatomy project, and if you check them out, you'll probably
realise why it got on top of my priority list. Everything else, your oc commissions, my tarot
cards, everything else I've got time for only between drawing for them, and until I'm finished,
that's probably how it's going to work. It's a great opportunity for me to get spotted by some
animation studio (and hopefully offered to work side by side with my idols). I could not let this
chance to pass me by. All of your commissions, dA ones as well as those I was asked for via
email, are still here, waiting to be completed, and they are not going to be forgotten.

Must thank you guys too, for if none of you got interested in my stuff I'd probably just keep
sitting on my butt at my parents' house and wish upon a star for a miracle instead of working 
to make my dream come true. Thank y'all! Thank you for your endless support!

Also, Happy New Year 2015! May this year be better than the previous!

hi you are mean, disrespectful and totally fake. Those animations are over drawn of diferent scenes of disney and dreamworks movies, but this is not the only thing i have againts you, i wouldn't say nothing if you just were a little less bitchy and rude. The way you answer questions to your followers and the poor people who admires you is just unbearable. I can not  understand people like you, people who lie and then get mad when they get caught.

No, I think he has a point. It was the grammar that really convinced me, different with 1 f...plus all those specific examples they gave. I mean, its obvious you have drawn over dreamworks animations, thats why all your work looks NOTHING like any of the animations they have produced. I mean, there is not way your art style, possibly influenced by watching Disney as a child, could ever come to resemble their typical styles through hard work and determination, only by "over drawing"

lol

      Your art and animations are seriously really cool. And, no offense to the Disney fans out there, but 2-d animation doesn't automatically relate to Disney. I mean, why go straight to Disney with such a talent when you could possibly make your own animation company or something. (I exaggerate.)  But for real, Disney's not the only one. 
       Anyway, that went off topic real quickly. Ravietta, it'd be really cool if somehow a movie was with your animations. I don't know, I'm really far-fetched sometimes, but it'd be cool to see another really 2-d animated movie these days.
      What am I even talking about, nvm, I write too much.
Anyway keep up the good work, if you're still reading this essay. lol. 
Thx.
