Why are asks disabled, twitter replies muted, and tapas comments disabled? How do I send you a message?
Mental health reasons. Just can't handle the huge and growing audience... you can email me on my contact page
What brushes / program / tablet do you use?
I mostly use kyle’s megapack! i use photoshop cs6 and a yiynova msp19u+ tablet.
Will you teach me how to make a webcomic? / do you have any tips?
I’m really a bad person to ask for tips, since i mostly kind of bullshit my way through? I’ve also made 1 (and a half) other comics before this one, 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, i’m just not a very good teacher. If you have a really SPECIFIC question about the process i’ll try my best to answer.
What inspired you to make your style / characters?
A huge variety of things that are very hard for me to pinpoint off the top of my head. My style just kind of happened naturally, my characters are inspired by myself and other people i know and other characters i like. Sorry for a not very exciting answer!
Do you have a NSFW blog?
Nope! NSFW stuff is posted on my patreon!
Where can I see your other characters?
I post info about my other OCs on my patreon! I'll send you my OC site if we're friends, just ask!
Can I RP your characters / make a RP blog?
Nahhh 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?
In general, I am fine with tattoos of my art but only if it's Long Exposure characters or fanart of large franchise characters. Please do not tattoo drawings of my other OCs, drawings of myself or of my fursona.. Thank you!! You can also snag a commission slot on my patreon for a custom tattoo!
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, which means you would be charged $30/month for NSFW content and additional rewards.
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?
Fanchars in general are fine, but if I'm being honest 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!
