:bulletblue: General Info :bulletblue:

Where are you from?

As my profile says I'm from Canada. Right now I live in Toronto, Ontario even though i wish i lived in Martinique or some place warm XD.

When did you start drawing?

Well like most people would say here Ive been drawing since I could hold a pencil but I started to pick up the pace about 2 years ago.

Are you really half blind?

Yes I am =.= but people seem surprised when I tell them. Even thought it has some perks I'd give anything to see fully :( and my condition is something that can't be cured right now. I made my art teacher cry once XD she's like "I wish the rest of the class was like you" and then she says "AND DON'T TELL ANYONE THAT I WAS CRYING!" Nobody in my class liked her except me :( she was a bit weird but i like that uniqueness in her <3 She retired last year and I was really sad :( She said that its surprising that I am visually impaired because I supposedly seemed more enthusiastic then the rest and that I didn't really show any sign of weakness. Im like Kay o.O

Can i use your linearts?

It depends on the lineart I have a "free lineart" section in my gallery. Other linearts not in that folder are probably commissions or trades and you need permission from the person who bought/asked for it.

:bulletblue: Materials :bulletblue:

What do you use when drawing?

For sketching I use my amazingly squishy Uniball Alpha Gell Shaka Shaker pencil OMG I LOVE THIS PENCIL! It has a grip made out of a gell that can stop and egg from breaking from 5 feet! Its amazingly soft and squishy and they come in all different coloures and styles.
I use both Copic Multiliners and Micron Multiliners to line my pictures but I don't use Microns when im using my Copic Markers.

What do you colour with?

I use my amazing box of 132 Prismacolour Premier Pencils and some Copic Markers I bought individually. I just recently got my 132 set and i used to use a 36 set of prismas and some Faber Castell Polychromos the I bought individually along with some Faber Castell Albrect Durer watercolour pencils, even thought i don't have a lot of them.

What do you use for highlights?

I use a Sakura Gellyroll pen in white for small highlights that require careful placing like highlights in eyes. I also use Copic  Opaque White Ink with a brush for bigger highlights like stars and large pictures.

:bulletblue: My Page :bulletblue:

How did you set up a background in your custom boxes?

First of all search up custom boxes on the front page there are some really helpful guides there. You will need a code. To get this code look up custom boxes like i said before, If you are having issues I can send you the code by email since here you wont be able to see all of it.

I have a inner box but i dont want that little header thing on it. How do i get it off?

I played around with my coding in a seperate test box until I got it just right. Again if you want the code send me a note with your email and I will send you the code i used.

I pasted my background into the box and it works but it doesn't reach the edges. What do I do?

If it isn't obvious... You enlarge it! I use paint to enlarge my background. My background is set to 3400x3339 so if you spread the new canvas to that length and with then copy your background into it. Stretch your background but be careful with   which edge you grasp because If you pull the one at the side or bottom it wont look good. Stretch the one in the bottom right corner. Save it repost it copy the link into your code and there ya go XD.

I have a background/Inner box but all my test is out of it! What do I do?

Oooh its simple :3 Just put all your text before the last <#/div> (remove the #) If you dont have a <#/div> at the end at all add one or a few until you have it the way you want.

Have any problems or don't understand something feel free to ask me! I love to help others. <3

I took a look at your page and i think i know whts wrong. Go into paint (If you have it... if not ill do it for u.) and zoom out to 12.5x then increase the size of the canvas to as large as you can get it. MAKE SURE U CAN SEE ALL EDGES OF THE CANVAS. If you cant sometimes the thing you use to increase the size of the picture disapears and you will have to do it over again.
Copy the picture onto the canvas and pull it until it reaches all sides of the canvas and covers all the white space. Save and then re post it. Right click the picture on your deviation page and click copy url or what ever it says. Paste it into your costom box and there ya go ^^
