(Frequently Asked Questions)

When I'm not getting flooded with spam at my "studios"-related email address, I generally see the same few questions over and over again. Please check below to see if your question is answered before you email me!

If your question isn't covered in this FAQ, go ahead and contact me. ::smiles::

Q: Can I use one of your pictures for my RPG character's portrait?
A: Yes, as long as the usage remains non-profit. I require that all images used on web sites be properly credited to me with the following statement: © Copyright Maggie Wang. All rights reserved. Please read the Copyright and Usage guidelines for full instructions.

Q: We are developing a new game/RPG. Would you be interested in joining our team as a concept artist/illustrator?
A: This depends on the project. I have a full-time job at this time that keeps me up and running from 9 am - 6:30 pm daily, as well as five web sites and a steady stream of paid commission work to maintain. Email me with details on your project and I'll let you know if I have extra time in my schedule.

Q: What do you use to create your art work?
A: My base medium is graphite pencil for all of my work. Most of my black and white drawings are graphite, although I also use charcoal for wildlife drawings and pen and ink for illustration work. My colored images are scanned graphite drawings colored with a combination of Adobe Photoshop and Jasc Paint Shop Pro.

Q: I'm just starting out as an artist. Can you give me any tips on drawing?
A: Practice, practice, practice! Take as many art classes as you can at your school or college, and study the work of artists whose work you admire. If you'd like some portable instruction, check out my list of favorite (and useful) art books.

Q: Can you draw Jean-Claude, Anita Blake, Edward, or Richard from the Anita Blake books next?
A: I'll certainly think about it. It's hard to find time for side projects and fan art these days, but I do plan on drawing all of the main characters from Laurell K. Hamilton's books when I have some free time. In the meanwhile, take a look at my Anita Blake gallery.

Q: Can you draw my roleplaying character for me?
A: Yes and no. Yes, I can do a custom character portrait for you, but no, it won't be free. My black and white portraits are $25, while colored work is $50. I wish I could help out every gamer out there who asks me for a drawing of their character, but with an average of 3-4 requests per week, I'd never get any of my other work done. For more information on commissioning a portrait, please follow the Commissions link.

Q: What is GemStone III?
A: GemStone III is a text-based multiplayer online roleplaying game from Simutronics. I have several characters in the Prime version of the game--Myrael, Shonin, Sydrian, and Synne. You can visit my character shrine, the Ta'Zen'Shihr Pavilion, to see bios on my characters and other GemStone III residents.

Q: Can I use one of your pictures for a tattoo design?
A: Sure, but only if you promise to send me a picture of the final product!
