1 I Have a Request For a Stained Glass of (Insert Character Here)!
Firstly, check my gallery. Specifically the folders titled "Stained Glass Project" and "Commissions". Is your request in either folder? No? Well, the only stained glass windows I have plans for are those on my donations list, which can usually be found on my profile page, or my current commissions list, which can usually be found below the donations list. If the character you suggested is not on either list, I do not have plans to make a stained glass for him/her. You will have to make it a commission. (As of August 9th 2012, I'm reserving the right to change my mind for any future Disney or MLP characters.) 2. Why don't you have a stained glass for Aurora (AKA Sleeping Beauty), Cinderella, Belle (Beauty and the Beast), or Snow White?
I base all of my stained glass designs on the Stations of Awakening from the game Kingdom Hearts. Here are those four princesses as seen in the game:images.wikia.com/kingdomhearts…images.wikia.com/kingdomhearts…images.wikia.com/kingdomhearts…images.wikia.com/kingdomhearts…
I don't feel that I could ever improve on these gorgeous original designs.
And this is why I'm not making one for Belle in her gold dress, nor Aurora in her blue/pink dress.3 But I don't have the money or points for commissions! And/Or Several of My Friends Want to See It Too!
In that case, I'll put your suggestion in the next poll for my donations list. If it wins the poll, it will be made when the next donations goal is met.4 Tell Me More About That Donations List!akili-amethyst.deviantart.com/…5 What are Your Commissions Rates?
My commissions list is currently extremely long. Please only order a commission now if you do not mind a several-months wait.6 What Is the Difference Between Requests and Commissions?
Requests are when you ask me to make something for nothing. I might make them, if the moon is right and if I feel inspired to. That is, unless a whole lot of you want the same thing, then I will put it on my donations list, which I hope to complete eventually. Commissions are something you pay for, and I will complete as promptly as I can. You partially own the finished piece, and can do with it whatever you want. I must ask YOU permission to use it or feature it anywhere besides my DA gallery and DA groups. I want to feature your commission in groups, because unless you state otherwise, I'm going to assume you would like lots of people to see it. And groups are a great way of getting more exposure for a piece of art.7 Hey! Your Designs Are Not Stained Glass, They Are Stations of Awakening!
Yes, I know. Obviously you did not read FAQ #2. I credit the game for the Stations of Awakening design in most, if not all, of my designs.
For those of you that don't know what a Station of Awakening is, follow this link to the Kingdom Hearts Wiki: kingdomhearts.wikia.com/wiki/C…8 Who Is This Character You Featured?
Please read my artist's comments.9 Why Didn't You Feature (Insert Related Character/Symbol Here) to This Stained Glass?
I didn't think the character/symbol was important enough to the center character and/or story, and/or I didn't like that character. Or the piece was commissioned that way.10 How Do You Make Your Stained Glass Pictures?/What Program Do You Use?/How do you get that stained glass effect?
I use Photoshop CS4. I either find coloring pages of existing characters or I make line arts of my own. Then I put them all together on one of my templates akili-amethyst.deviantart.com/…
and color them like in my coloring tutorial: akili-amethyst.deviantart.com/…
The texture comes from using a brush in this set: synchromesh.deviantart.com/art…
As for the vectors, I found this tutorial very helpful: www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYSpfq…11 Are You Still Selling Pony Swag?/How Much is Pony Swag?
I am not currently selling Pony Swag.12 How Do I Pay?
Paypal. TheFairyLady@hotmail.com That being said, please don't send payment until I have officially accepted your commission.13 Can I Get a Commission as Swag?
If you got the commission from me, yes. You are the only one who can order it as Swag, too. Unless you give me permission otherwise.14 Whatever Happened To That MLP Coin Idea?
Coin FAQ: akili-amethyst.deviantart.com/…15 OMG Read My Fanfic Plz!
Please do not take this personally, but I DO NOT read fan fictions. I can barely get myself to finish the books they are based on. I'm really not much of a reader. I'm more of a video/visual person.16 Best Pony?
Princess Luna17 Hey! You Forgot Something You Were Going to Do For Me!
Find the box on my profile page titled "Commissions". If your screen name is not there, gently remind me in a note please! I don't mean to be forgetful!18 Hey! You Should Send These to Lauren Faust For Her to See!
I believe she has already seen at least one of my designs. I was told she even signed it for the lucky Brony! (It was the 'Fausticorn' design!) I plan on sending her one of each coin once I find a mailing address for her. Please DO NOT send her any of my coins!19 You Can't Really Consider Yourself a Brony if You're a Girl, Can You?
Even though I am a 25-year-old feminine woman, I still consider myself a Brony. Only for the simple reason of: Normally, I would not watch a show meant for little girls. Meant for little boys, yes, because seriously, who DOESN'T like Duck Tales or Gargoyles? Come on. And I watch Disney movies regularly because they are family films, which means adults can find things to enjoy about them as much as little kids can. But shows meant for little girls never tickled my fancy. Until Friendship is Magic came along.20 Are You Going to Make Bigger Line Arts for the Disney Princess Designs?
Yes, in due time. I have to make them from scratch, and it takes me a few days to complete one! And that's during the time when I have no life!21 Who is Orion?
Orion is the name I gave my beast of a computer on which I do all my art.
