IF YOU'RE HERE TO ASK ME TO PARTAKE IN A CONTEST/RP/GIVE YOU A FREE REQUEST BOY DO I HAVE SOME BAD NEWS FOR YOU|
I predominately go by Zedrin. I am a flash animator, the head animator behind Silly Filly Studios, a digital artist, and an engineer. I'm not very chatty but don't be afraid to ask me things, especially for technical help.
Currently a resident of Arizona, and an engineering graduate out of ASU.
If you like my art and characters, consider supporting me on Patreon!
Some FAQ stuff:
Do you RP?/Can we RP?
Can I use your artwork in my site/post/Facebook/Youtube video?
Certainly! Just provide some link back to the original piece, such as in the description. Please use the fav.me (example provided) shortlink on the right hand side of any deviation. (Just copying the raw URL sometimes redirects to your own inbox instead)
If you're posting it to tumblr, as before I don't mind as long as you provide citation (either in the description or through Tumblr's source option), but you may find it easier to just reblog from my art blog: zedart.tumblr.com/
Can I vector your work?
I'm tempted to say no to this because of BS I've had to deal with. You may, but because I've had issues with people thinking they can then sell these vectors, I ask that you disable downloads of the image and clearly state that they are NOT for commercial use. (Clever users can still get the image without trouble to use in wallpapers, etc., this simply deters the more foolish ones.)
Also make sure you're actually doing a vector. I can respect ACTUAL vector work. To make sure you know what it means to vector something, please look at my infographic: fav.me/d686h1r
And even then, if I say to take it down, then you agree to take it down.
(And don't try to say something silly like a raster recolor of an image counts as vectorization. I work with vector graphics for animation for a living. You'd have to be sinfully stupid if you think you'd be able to get that by me.)
Can I publish a trace or make a base of your work?
You may not. You may use my art to help you practice (even though tracing doesn't help as much as people think), but if you trace my work I ask that you don't publish it.
I am adamantly against bases due to sourcing issues with them and that they are essentially tracing as well.
I am fine with people using my art as a reference, such as using it to compare their own art or poses, and publishing it (and there's nothing I could legally do even if I wasn't). Do note this does not involve tracing.
Do you have a Tumblr?
Yes. If you just want my art, my art blog is zedart.tumblr.com/ If you want my shenanigans and doodles, my mod blog is zedrin-maybe.tumblr.com/
Oh, and my nsfw is zedrin-butts.tumblr.com/
Do you take requests?
If you follow my blog I sometimes take generic sketch requests, especially of my own characters. I do take commissions when time allows.
Hi, I'm working on a big animation project, can you help me with it?
But it'll make you super fam-
No. It won't.
There may be payment involved!
You're free to commission me if I have commissions open, but things like 2 hour movies take a studio of people working on salary several months, if not years, to complete. Animation commissions are best kept no longer than a minute.
PLEASEPLEASEPLEASE JUST DO MY ANIMATION
This question is in this FAQ because there are people who literally resort to begging like this.
What's your Steam/Skype?
I no longer give those out. If you want em, you'll have to get to know me instead. :v
What software do you use?
I use Flash CS6, Photoshop CS6, Illustrator CS6, After Effects CS6, and am familiar with Blender. I also use programs like Audition, Audacity, and Premier.
Can you teach me flash/how to draw?
Ask me questions on this stuff! I can't teach people one on one, but I'm always willing to answer questions on drawing and animation.
I also frequently do recordings of my speedpaintings, all posted to my Youtube. They may offer some insight to my methods, and I answer any questions about my process.
I'm unwatching you because I don't like what you draw
I've got a contest! All you have to do is draw my OC!
I'm going to make fun of you.
