Q: Do you take requests/Will you draw my OC for me?
I don't take requests. Ever. Sorry!
Q: Okay, so do you take commissions?
Typically if you want to guarantee a commission slot your best bet is through my Patreon. Often only sketch commissions will be open when I'm traveling and such! I usually announce when commissions are open first on Twitter and then shortly afterward on dA or tumblr. Just keep an eye out!
Q: What about commissions for freelance work/contract work/concept art/published works/etc?
Email me at leekfish at hotmail dot com, since I can answer inquiries about these on a case by case basis.
Q: Would you be interested in making/contributing art to [charity event/auction/etc]?
This is another case-by-case question, but chances are if you're a convention or someone seeking prizes for auctions/raffles I'll likely need to decline, since I'm usually overbooked on charity work as it is. For 2014 I created a current total of 14 charity pieces- and that's just if I'm not forgetting anything! Please understand that I contribute whenever possible but I'm very very VERY busy as it is!
Q: What tools/software do you use?
For digital work, I primarily use a 13HD Wacom Cintiq with Photoshop CS6 and Manga Studio 5. I also dabble in traditional mediums, in which case most often I use Faber Castell ink pens, Prismacolor colored pencils, and Copic markers. Depends on what I'm working on!
Q: How do you make your prints?
Currently, I print from home on my Epson Stylus R2000 on Epson Luster Photo Paper. When I first started doing conventions I had prints done at Office Max/Depot on light cardstock, but I've also heard CatPrint recommended.
Q: Can I draw your OC(s)?
Um, yes!! Seriously, I never understood why people feel they need to ask- I love seeing others draw my characters. As long as you credit me for the character design and you're not selling it, we cool.
Q: So... why the username "LeekFish"?
it's really not all that interesting of a story- once upon a time Christina got nicknamed Fish for a while because of a really stupid inside joke and just kinda rolled with it. Later she combined it with fandom junk (Hatsune Miku's "character item" is a leek/spring onion) and decided "that's so ridiculous I have to have it" and here we are
