I predominately go by Zedrin, ZombieZephyr, and Storm Shock. I am a flash animator, digital artist, and an engineering student. Don't be afraid to say hi or ask a question, I don't bite, much. :> Common sense goes a long way with me. Note though I don't engage in small talk.
Resident of Arizona, currently at ASU in their engineering program.
Some FAQ stuff:
business email: firstname.lastname@example.org 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: [link] Can I vector your work?
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.) Do you have a Tumblr?
I run Ask-Mafia-Octavia
. My art blog is [link]
and my mod blog is [link] Do you take requests?
No, at least not now. I do take commissions when time allows. Hi, I'm working on a big animation project, can you help me with it?
No. But it'll make you super fam-
No. It won't. There may be payment involved!
You're free to commission me, but things like 2 hour movies take a studio of people working on salary several months, if not years, to complete. I honestly doubt one person would be able to pay enough to occupy that much of my dedication. Animation commissions are best kept no longer than a minute. PLEASEPLEASEPLEASE JUST DO MY ANIMATION
If you've read up to this point, you know it's a bad idea to send me your fanfic ideas. Whether or not you've read this, I am not responsible for how butthurt you get when I vehemently shoot your idea down, which will happen.
I don't do this out of anger or hatred, but when you're having to keep score of all the stupid ideas you've had sent your way, I honestly don't care how I come off to someone who wants to add to that.
Like, seriously. Don't ask me to animate for you. I've got my own team and my own projects. What's your steam? [link]
Feel free to add me, but do note I don't play much anymore. I'm always up for a chat, just make sure you have something to talk about! (I ignore 'hey' 'sup' messages cause I get a lot) What software do you use?
I use Flash CS6, Photoshop CS6, Illustrator CS6, After Effects CS6, and am familiar with Blender. Can you teach me flash/how to draw?
As much as I'd like to, I don't have time. I really want to make tutorials when I get the chance. My group, #Pony-Animators
has several resources posted to the front page at least, where you may get some help. If you have any questions on specific aspects of Flash, feel free to send them my way as well and I'll see if I can help!
I also frequently do recordings of my speedpaintings, all posted to my Youtube. [link]
They may offer some insight to my methods, and I answer any questions about my process.
