Yes! I finally wrote this up! Feel free to ask further questions. If I get one a lot, I'll add it here.What program do you use for your digital pieces?The GIMP
. I'm actually using a slightly outdated version since I'm used to it and don't care about the updates they've made to the program very recently.
I have, in the past, used other programs, I always mention the media at the end of the artist's comment, so you know what I used.How do you paint with the GIMP?
For the most part, the program works very much like Photoshop or other digital programs like that. I'm not good at explaining how the program itself works. I did a walk through showing how I work here
. Are you taking commissions?
I'm not, for the time being. I'm currently suffering from some kind of illness. I don't know what it is, but it's slowed me down a good bit. Sometimes I can't draw much, and sometimes the quality of my work suffers (you wouldn't have noticed, I don't post that - I don't even save it). I have good days, but they're unpredictable. Since I can't trust myself to be reliable, I've decided it's best not to take commissions. If my situation changes and I begin taking them again, I'll make it known.How do you pronounce your first name?
Muh-GAIR-uh. Emphasis on the second syllable.Are you writing/will you write stories about the characters and world in your art?
I was writing about my characters, but the aforementioned illness has slowed that down as well. Actually I've all but stopped writing simply because I can't sit up that long, and when I'm particularly tired I can't write a readable sentence to save my life. Still, I work on the stories and everything anyway since it's basically involuntary at this point.
I'll get back to it eventually.What are the Agents?
Short answer: Agents are an extremely powerful type of magical creature in my universe. I'm using "agent" in the sense of "one who acts or exerts power". They are beings that are all mind, they're physical forms are created entirely out of magic following the orders of their unconscious mind and personality. That's why their so weird looking and no two look even remotely similar.Long answer
(which includes more about their life cycle, since people asked).What is Sornal? Why does he look different than his sister?
Sornal is a dog/bird mutt of a man, and his excessive height is from gigantism. He and his sister Enka are half siblings. They have the same father, who is a dog, accounting for the dog traits in both, but Enka's mother was a rabbit and Sornal's mother was part dog, part bird.(character) looks creepy/mean/scary is (character) evil?
Chances are they aren't really. Which is not to say all my characters are perfectly nice or have hearts of gold, just that their superficial appearance and apparent demeanor isn't a good indicator of what they are capable of. I don't create villains in any real sense, but I've always believed anyone can be the villain in someone else's life.
