Why are comments disabled on some sites? How do I send you a message?
I have a hard time handling so many online interactions at once! Feel free to email me on my contact page.
What brushes / program / tablet do you use?
I mostly use Kyle’s Megapack brushes, Photoshop CS6, and a Yiynova MSP19U tablet.
Will you teach me how to make a webcomic? / Do you have any tips?
I’m really bad at explaining my process. I’ve made one (and a half) other comics before Long Exposure, so I think it’s kind of just about jumping in, making mistakes, and learning from experience! Googling tutorials on the subject is also a good idea. If you have a specific question about the process I’ll try my best to answer.
What inspired your style / characters?
A huge variety of things. I try to find inspiration in any art, music, characters, people, and other media I come across.
Do you have a NSFW blog?
Nope! NSFW stuff is posted on my Patreon!
Where can I see your other characters?
I post more in-depth info about my other OCs on my Patreon!
Can I RP your characters / make a RP blog?
Nah, they’re still my personal OCs so that just feels too uncomfortable for me (Mitch and Jonas have their own blogs on tumblr @bitchell and @jonaslights).
Can I be kin with your OCs?
Noo, not comfortable with it, sorry!
Your character looks like (some other fictional character)!
Not at all a very flattering thing to tell an artist! No thanks!
Can I get a tattoo of your art?
I am fine with tattoos of my Long Exposure art or my fanart. Please do not tattoo drawings of my other OCs, or drawings of myself or of my persona(s). Contact me if you'd like a personal tattoo commission.
What is Patreon?
Patreon is a membership service for creators to provide content, as well as ways for artists to build relationships and provide exclusive experiences to their subscribers, or "patrons." You give me money, I give you art and comics.
What do you charge for your Patreon?
The lowest tier is $1 per comic update (I post a batch update 3 times a month on average, so you would pay $3/month).
How can I see NSFW art?
My NSFW art is posted in the $10 tier.
When am I charged?
Patreon takes the money from your account sometime around the first of the month.

Can I make a fan-character for Long Exposure and ship them with one of the canon characters?
Fancharacters are fine, but I find it a little off-putting when people ship their characters with mine without my permission! Same goes for making fan-children, siblings, and other relatives of my characters.
Can my character be in Long Exposure?
I open cameos for patrons occasionally, so if you want a chance at your character appearing in Long Exposure you'd have to be a patron!
