Exploring Art 31: It's about the money. Or not...
You know, this week has been pretty horrible for art theft for me. I think the hardest part about this week is not that people stole my work, it is the reaction to being busted.
I've had everything flung out from 'you're not a lawyer, don't tell me what I can and can't do', to 'if you were a REAL artist you wouldn't care about the money'. I've had people call me a bitch and a whore for asking them to remove my work. I've had people state that I am too rude in telling them to remove the stolen work, and that I should appreciate that they gave me 'free publicity'. I've had people tell me they will now be  boycotting my work, and will tell everyone what a shitty person I am and to stay away from my work unless I let them continue to use my work without compensation.
To be honest? I was very close to giving up this weekend. I ended up taking a break and curling up in a hot bath and just crying for a few hours over the weekend. It's painful, it hurts. My pride is wounded, my soul feels

Exploring Art 30: Theft and value of an artist
Hey guys. I've written about copyright law in the past, but there are some things I just.. never thought to mention. However now that Sarah and I are working together, we're dealing with several types of art theft at once. Everything from the recast dolls situation (where someone buys your doll, makes casts of it, then sells it to the public. Yes this is illegal, more on that later), to someone submitting my art to a game company as their own for a job. In many cases we are dealing with ignorance, so I thought I would clarify a few things.
This is going to take a while.
The Recast Situation
There is a new trend in the ball jointed doll industry, where people are taking dolls and sending them to 'professional recasters'. These people then make a mold of someone's doll, and recast it. They then proceed to sell the doll to their customers. The artist receives no compensation for this, nor is allowed to even have a say in anything from the quality of the resin, to the

Your 'Guardian Angel'
You protect yourself through them, vent through them etc, they keep you strong.
You probably have a deep emotional connection with this character.

Your Sunshine!
A character that never fails to make you smile. Maybe they have bright colors.

The Odd One
The odd ball character you're not sure why you have, but you treasure them deeply. Perhaps because they're just so weird?

Made with pride by the DeviantArt community

Haven't done one of these questionnaires in a while. :)

When did you start drawing?
I drew tradtional ink drawings ever since I was born. But I didn't touch digital art until 2014, which is also when I inadvertently discovered I'm musically talented too (music composition). Art is as easy as breathing for me but while I have a natural talent for art and music, I always work hard to keep it going and look for improvements. While most my skill is from natural talent, hard work and practice keeps that talent fresh.

Which hand do you use for drawing?
Left hand. I can't draw or write scrap with my right hand. (But my handwriting is horrible with ether hand actually.)

Which is easier to draw - male or female?
Both are easy to draw.

Which is easier to draw - long hair or short hair?
Either. But I think long hair is slightly harder to draw, but not by much. You just have to compensate for more hair is all.

Is it easier to draw the head facing towards the right or the left?
I just draw whatever way I decide to. Either is fine.

Is it easier to draw the side view of the face or the front view?
Side view and the view between side and front view. Face on shots are a little harder to find poportions, but again, not by much. Though I do prefer side shots more.

What do you have problems in drawing?
Oh boy, where to start?

Ferals are absolute number one worst thing I can draw, I think they're my weakest spot as an artist. Finding a pose can be challenging as I usually need a reference and can't come up with my own poses, drawing hands/fingers can be a pain occasionally, character perspective can be problematic (but background perspective is easy.), straight lines in lineart, faking pen pressure in Photoshop is time consuming and can sometimes be a challenge, vehicles and machines are some weak spots, but are getting better. I also feel that my aquatic and amphibious anthros need massive improvement.

What do you like to draw?
Alien and terrestrial landscapes, spacescapes, oceanscapes, plants and trees, avians, anthros, humanoids, fashion, natural disasters, musical instruments, cooking, tablescapes and anything girly/feminine, science fiction or fantasy. I also like historical fiction too.

Are you a traditional artist or a digital artist?
I started out traditional with just an ink pen and paper, but I'm now mostly digital. But Im planning on selling artwork in my Diaphanous Pencil Style which I use the professional quality Prismacolor® and Holbein Artists® colors pencils to create it with.

But I love both digital and traditional art evenly. Both are amazing in similar and different ways. :)

Where do you start drawing from?
Unlike many artists, I don't have a "sketch" phase. I first start with sticks and circles to determine the pose and where the joints are. Not really a sketch, just a pose reference, but you can say that is my "sketch phase". But I start right off with the lineart.

What is your drawing habit that you are aware of?
I have several.

I follow a routine of starting with pose reference, lineart, background, color and then finishing with shade/lighting.

I usually draw the head of a character either first or last.

I am extremely detailed when drawing (especially and extremely with my Class A Style, which I wish I can showcase that style as it is so beautiful. Not to toot my own horn, but it is.). I have a seemly infinite amount of patience to draw. I have never got annoyed or bored on drawing details or anything else in the picture. (Though I got to admit that fingers can be tedious, but I don't get annoyed or bored over it.)

I have a tendency to use standing poses. (Need to draw someone sitting down for once!)

I shade first then highlight.

I tend to finish the entire background usually before coloring the character. However, any shadows the character produces are usually the last thing I do before a picture is finished.

Any tips for coloring/shading?
While I sometimes do this for my Sketchbook Style, don't use pure black and white for shading and lightning. You are better off using darker or lighter versions of the character's main color or the base color of the lighting in the background. (Eg. Use dark violet and magenta hues for shading and light red, orange, citron, vermilion, pink and purple hues for lightning on a sunset picture.)

How long does it take to finish a piece of art?
Depends what style...

Sketchbook: 4-10 hours
Standard Photoshop: 1-13 hours
Intricate Flat: Never drew in that style yet. But it will probably be around 4-9 hours.
Phixelia: Assuming on 6-9 hours.
Class A Photoshop: 3-17 hours
Eloquent Stroke: Assuming 3-9 hours
Diaphanous Pencil: Assuming from a few hours to an entire day.

What music do you listen to while you draw?
Well classical/orchestral/new age/atmosphere as I always listen to, drawing or not. I hate every other genre of music.

How long does it take you to come up with an idea?
Depends on what but it usually doesn't take very long.

Your favorite drawing utensils?
For Sketchbook: My finger and friend's tablet. (Need my own preferably IPad or Samsung tablet.)
For Photoshop: Mouse, airbrush tool, hard brush tool, fade tool, smudge tool, blur tool, ocapcity and flow tools, selection tools.  I'm pretty bias against using brushes made for doing backgrounds as in my opinion, that's the lazy, uniform, cringy and unrealsitic way to draw backgrounds. If you're going to use them, make them go well with background which I may indeed make a tutorial on how to use these brushes properly. I feel that other then creating textures, these brush's have little to no place in my art whatsoever. If I use them, which is exceedingly rare, you 99.99% likely can't tell if I used them as I use them properly. Its just a little rule of thumb I have. :shrug:

Your favorite color/the color that you use a lot?
Well I got several answers.

Celeste (Hue: 184/185 Light: 50 Sat: 97. A type of cyan.) is my top favorite color. However, I seldom use it save for Jcyapha, Pyspsqalphaya Palms or Septical Realm things. So I can't say I use it often albeit it is my top favorite color.

My other favorite colors are any lilac hue, any cyan hue, any aqua hue, any yellow hue, any pink hue, any purple hue, any pale hue and narangi (Hue 36 Light: 50 Sat: 99). I use these colors somewhat often. But I use any color I need to and usually that what it comes down to. I try not to make everything I make fully connected to me and making a ton of things these colors would be repetitive and unrealistic. The world is full of variety in colors and I follow that variety. I work with whatever color I need to.

I do have colors I like and despise working with. I like working with cooler colors. Lime hues, green hues, mint hues, aqua hues, cyan hues, blue hues, indigo hues, purple hues and pale colors. I prefer to work with colors that aren't overly saturated, bright or otherwise, but I sometimes have to. I don't really hate working with any color in particular. Yellow hues, citron hues, orange hues and pink hues are my favorite to work with in the warm color spectrum but I like every color in it's own way.

I don't hate any color, but I HATE working with a certain color xobination that is often used together. This is red hues being used with black or dark grey hues. I can't stand this color combination, it looks awful, its ridiculously overused and I just don't like it. Pink hues, orange hues and even vermilion hues look better then red hues with black. I don't hate red hues or black alone but using them together...that's a pet peeve.

This is probably my longest answer for a question so far. :/

Your favorite style(s)?

Out of my own styles: Class A Photoshop Style in a heartbeat! :)

Out of other people's styles: Umm...I accept any and all styles. Everyone has a different and unique style even if two artists' styles appear similar or identical. I accept everyine:'s unique style.

Are you satisfied with your current art?
I'm pretty happy with my art as it's a natural ability I possess. But is there room for improvement...of course! I always try to improve my art in any way I can. I'm my own judge and critic.

What kind of artist are you aiming for?
I'm not aiming for anything to be honest. I'm just a will be self-employed digital artist. (Tradigital since I'm offering a traditional style too.)

Edited the Hue for Celeste as I accidenrly put down nines instead of eights. :/

Jcyapha's Profile Picture
Jarreth Fox-Heins
Artist | Digital Art
United States
I'm a 15 year old, 100% self-taught fantasy/ethereal/science fiction artist living in Arizona, USA. I have been creating my stories and creations ever since I was 2-3 years old. (Yes, I was able to draw, write and read at that age, ask my parents.) I have been drawing ever since I was a few weeks old. (Started out drawing traditional trees, I started digital art in early 2014 when I discovered I was good at it.) I've been with recipes since 2009 and I've been writing music since 2013 as I unintentionally discovered I had a talent at that. So I draw, write, make recipes and write music.

Some notes to consider abut me:

* I'm not a one note artist. I only consider myself partly a furry because most of my races and species can be considered "furry". (I prefer them being called anthros...) I draw many things from landscapes to spacescapes to characters to logos, etc.

* I don't mind you watching me just for one thing that I draw specifically. But I would appreciate if you're at least willing to look at everything else besides what you watch me for.

* I draw, write, make recipes and write music.

* I'm a ridiculously private, reserved and introverted person. I may act spirited and vivacious online, but offline life is the real story. (Being online is

* I don't always respond to comments, favs and shouts. I'm more likely to respond to a longer comment then a "cool picture". That doesn't mean I don't appreciate them, I love each and every one. (Unless it's disturbing, creepy, impudent or offensive.)

* I'm not into role playing. So please don't do it on my page and submissions.

* I'm a very, very, VERY nice person. Do not take my niceness as instantly being your BFF. I chose a "friend" carefully and it's 99.9999% not likely you're one of them. In fact, I only have one online friend. This doesn't mea I "hate" you, as if that were the case, I would hate everyone on here. So I don't have something against you if I don't call you a "friend". Everyone on here is a passive acquaintance or just a plain acquaintance to me. I'm just a private person, that's all.

* Albeit I'd love to watch my favorite people, I won't watch you. Sorry. This happened on DA and I got flooded with an aggravating 980 messages a day and I rarely ever look at my notifications unless they were notes, journals, miscellaneous notifications or comments/replies. I'm not trying to sound harsh or mean, but what's the point in watching someone if you're never going to look at what they post? Even if I like their art, I constantly forget about that the most. So I'm not going to watch people. But I will try to visit YOUR page if I really like your art, but I won't watch you as it'll flood my notifications and I forgot to look at what people posted.
