IMPORTANT COMMISSION INFORMATION BELOW (IN THE FORM OF QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS)!!

Q: HOW DO I EVEN COMMISSION YOU, DC?
A: you can reach me here on tumblr through my ask box or fanmail, or email me at mattikunkitten@verizon.net! message me with WHO you’d like me to draw, WHAT they’re doing/wearing/looking at/etc, WHERE they are (if a background is requested), and WHEN you need it if there are time constraints—a priority fee of 1(one) dollar will be added to your total (please only use this as needed, like for presents and such that need to get to people on time for their holiday of choice)

Q: CAN I ASK FOR MORE THAN ONE PERSON IN A DRAWING?
A: absolutely! additional figures will add $9 each to your total, no matter the commission style you choose (hint: that’s a pretty sweet deal!)

Q: CAN I GET A DRAWING OF [INSERT “ODD” REQUEST HERE]?
A: i’m pretty lax when it comes to content, so if you have any questions feel free to ask! very rarely will i decline to draw something outright. keep in mind that if there is excessive gore, violence, or other sensitive content, pornography, fetish art, or anything that might get me in jail if i give it to minors, DON’T BE A MINOR ASKING AFTER IT. i reserve the right to decline commissions for any reason, but will do so at the start—i will never half finish a project before cancelling.

Q: SO HOW LONG’S THIS GOING TO TAKE ANYWAYS?
A: that depends on how many orders i have going at a time, and how complicated the commission is. i will keep a list of the orders as they come, and that information is free to ask after at any time. you will be updated on the progress of your commission (if you’d like/is necessary), and will be sent the file upon its completion.

Q: THIS IS GONNA COST MONEY, ISN’T IT?
A: yes, and all payments can be made to my paypal, or with check or money order (paypal is easiest, and for the love of all that is good in this world do NOT send me cash—the mail system cannot be trusted!!) the price will be determined after you send me the request, and if need be, payment plans or negotiations can be made, but don’t expect to get a fully rendered piece for 10 bucks just because you blink sweetly enough at me. ALL PRICES ARE IN USD, PLAN ACCORDINGLY IF YOUR CURRENCY AIN’T THAT.

Q: I DON’T LIKE THE DRAWING.
A: you will be sent a plan for approval before i start finishing your commission in any sense, so if it isn’t what you wanted when it’s done….tough tooties?


Q: MY QUESTION ISN’T IN THIS PILE OF INFORMATION, HOW WILL I EVER GO ON?
A: if you have ANY questions about ANYTHING regarding your commission, please ask me!! before the piece is underway is the best time to do so, since it makes changes much easier for me to do, and therefore more likely to happen. seriously, it may feel dumb, but i’d rather you ask a million questions that seem silly after the fact than be disappointed because i wasn’t clear enough on your instructions.

even if you aren’t getting a commission yourself, i’d be especially grateful if you signal boost this and reblog! every bit helps~

thank you!!

open always and forever, please reblog

Anonymous asked: Hello yes I was wondering why you color 17 so pale when his skin is actually portrayed as lovely sun-kissed olive that is all good day

i’ve been watching/reading DBZ for a long time (like a long long LONG time) and one of the things i’ve noticed about it is that a.) the colors of the anime don’t always coincide perfectly with how they appear in the manga, especially because Toriyama is notorious for using whatever ink wash he has on hand instead of sticking to any one particular color, and b.) even within the anime the colors are still not always consistent, and there are a lot of points where it depends on the pallet of the scene.

so for example, we see 17 almost exclusively with his sister. next to her, he is definitely darker (at least in anime, in manga they’re pretty close) but this has less to do with him having a tan, and more to do with how alabaster 18’s own skin is. if you compare him to Trunks, who i would actually describe as having olive skin, he is notably paler. this is sometimes difficult to do because being in the SS state causes the skin to glow with the surrounding light, and appears paler. since Trunks is usually in this state when around the twins, they can look to be the same or even in some cases, Trunks might look paler. during the fight between Vegeta and 18 for example, when 17 rushes in you can tell he’s more or less the same tone as Tien or Krillin, perhaps a bit less on the pink side if anything. i might exaggerate it in my art to a point, but again, this has to do with color pallet and contrast. i don’t draw 17 particularly pale, just Trunks rather dark. 

but the most important part of all this is that, frankly, it doesn’t matter. it’s kind of a weird question to ask someone ‘why’ they draw anyone with any skin tone, especially since you phrased it kind of condescendingly, and if you don’t like my interpretation you’re welcome to find other artists, or draw your own art how you like.

3. Copy paste a line from the first smutty fanfic you wrote or fess up to a sexual fantasy you have about a character.
to be honest, i think i have long since thrown away my first “smutty” (i was 12, trust me, it could hardly be called smut) fanfic on one of my room-cleaning adventures, but i will confess that—as a lesbian—if Trunks were a physical person that i had in my circle of contacts, i would ride that dick like a fucking roller coaster.

11. Just how often do you think about your favorite characters getting down and dirty?
pretty much all day every day. the thing is, i want to write/draw adult-themed manga for a living anyways, so for me, thinking about characters having sex is 97% technical jargon floating in my head about what is necessary for the scene emotionally and to continue the plot with as little snag as possible.

14. What would your parent/guardian/family friend think if they saw your tumblr?
honestly it depends? i am a legal adult, so in the grand scheme of things their opinion on whether or not what i do is “inappropriate” is irrelevant. but both my parents are aware to varying degrees that i draw/read smutty garbage, and neither of them….really….care? and while my art blog has a fair amount of porn on it, it’s still my art. and i was blessed with extremely supportive parents, who have pushed me ever since i decided to become a for-money-and-life artist to hang on to and work hard for that goal. so even if i didn’t draw porn, they’d feel the same.

since porn IS what i draw, we have a pretty good agreement on what my borders are in terms of sharing/viewing—when my mom asked if i had a website or something so she could show her friends at work what i draw, she didn’t press the matter when i said it wasn’t work appropriate. my dad actually jokes with me all the time about “sitting in my room all day drawing the hentai yaois”, and honestly, this is the way i prefer it. sure it’s a little embarrassing at first, but i’d rather them be prepared for it when my first book gets published, than having them flip through the pages and being surprise-attacked by dicks everywhere.

as for friends of the family, i’m sure reactions would vary, but i’m kind of out of shits to give on that matter, because in the end, the only person’s opinion that’s worth a damn is mine.

2. Admit to a kink you’re ashamed you like.
see part of the problem is i’m so fucking shameless about the shit i like, and it can change depending on my mood. but i guess the one that makes me the most uncomfortable admitting to would be gore-porn? like i remember reading this one fic where character A was playing around fist deep in character Bs insides in both senses of the phrase, and i sat there reading the whole time like “oh my god i don’t think i’m supposed to find this hot how did this happen how did i get here oh my god”

9. Describe the first time you read a smutty fanfic. What ship was it and what kinks were involved?
it’s been so long i legitimately can’t remember. i know one of the earlier ones was a 17/oc thing i found in a link through on the ToT, and i had no fucking idea how any of it worked so mostly i was reading it g “he put his what in her what? is that even physically possible? what the hell is a “throbbing member?”

10. Any fandoms you’d hate to admit you were a part of?
hmm….none that immediately spring to mind? like, there were plenty of shows i’d feel weird about admitting t liking, but as for being in any kind of “fandom” the only ones i was ever active in were HP, DBZ, and a little bit of CN’s Teen Titans. and none of those were embarrassing so much as being pissed off at people not getting nuance in characterization.

12. Someone found your delicious account/bookmarks/AO3 account or however you keep track of your favorite fics. What’s the one fic you’re going to be most humiliated about?
well i don’t keep track of other people’s fics, cos i don’t really read other people’s fics (not a snob, just literally the only characters i give enough shits about to read fic for are like, the most underrated/mischaracterized characters in the whole series), but if anyone found MY old account, i would fucking die on the spot. (the mere mention of quarters will haunt me til the day i die after rereading that one piece of shit….)

Filed under griffinswings do not specify anything about the quarters if you reblog this keli i know where you live and i will mail you a rotting fish if you dare

Anonymous asked: There was more than that of course. I loved Seventeen's character, too. But the way they just killed him off drove me crazy. His attractiveness was just a silly remark.

that’s fair, i was just double checking. the way it was phrased made it seem otherwise.

but yeah, as far as i (and the majority of the fandom from what i see) am concerned, GT never happened. it doesn’t exist. it isn’t real. these are not the eps you’re looking for. carry on.

To the GT anon

i almost forgot cos i was so upset in my ranting, but this is a point i meant to address:

1.) actually, i thought sev’s design in GT was a little funny—they drew his face weird and that jacket REEEEALLY does not suit his coloring

2.) if you were ok with GT at all, i’m confused cos really, nothing about it was particularly good

but most importantly 3.) if what turned you away from the giant shitstain that was GT was the fact that 17 wasn’t pretty anymore, i understand the squick, but if all you get out of 17’s character is his good looks, i’m honestly a little disappointed and encourage you to look again at how awesome of a personality and brain he is

Anonymous asked: Seventeen was really pretty for his arc in GT until he had a hideous transformation which I will never forgive and that's were GT lost me

see i was going to try and hold back, but this is a topic that always gets me ranting no matter how many times it comes up. for the rest of everyone else who doesn’t want to read this nerd-heavy rant, i’m putting the rest under the cut.

as for you, dear anon:
