I've been meaning to make a FAQ journal for such a long time but i was so lazy... and i'm not lazy now so here it is
These are questions i've been asked a lot of times. If you have any other questions you can ask here C:1. How do you make your flash comics? Can you make a tutorial? What programs did you use?
I made the flash comics art in Adobe Photoshop (or any art program) and i made it have buttons and so on in Adobe Flash. I'm making a tutorial but it's very long (already made 40 pages and i'm not even half way) so it will take a while. Here are some other tutorials that might help you: [link]

by $devart2. Can i use your art for a project or trace/copy/reference it?
Yes, if it's on dA please credit me in the description with a link to the original deviation and my name clickable like this =Yuuza
, if it's on another side just give a link to my gallery or page. Do not remove my watermark please! 3. Do you do requests?
Only for very close friends, sorry 4. How do you make your animations?
There are 2 ways i make them. The blinking chibis with Adobe Photoshop's animation feature (here's the tutorial i learned from [link]
) and i save it as a .gif but that encodes the image for the web and a lot of color and details are lost so it will only look good for an animation with a small color palette.
I make the other animations using Adobe Flash (i make the art in Adobe Photoshop or Paint Tool Sai). There is no loss in details or color like this.5. Can you join my contest?
No, sorry, i have a lot of bad experiences with contests on dA and i just don't want to put my time and energy into something like this anymore.6. How do you make your art? What programs do yo use? Do you take art classes? What books/materials/sites do you learn from? How long does it take you to make a drawing? For how long have you been drawing? Are you going to make an art tutorial?
I paint until it looks decent, no special techniques. If it still doesn't look good then i add a texture.
I use Photoshop and Paint Tool Sai simultaneously (i joggle between them but lately i use Sai a lot more).
I don't take any art classes.
There is only one book i use for drawing hands "Burne Hogarth - Drawing Dynamic Hands" you can read it online here [link]
(i know it's not very obvious i learn from it but give it some time QAQ)
I finish a drawing in 3 days if everything goes smoothly, 5-7 days for the very complicated ones. If i have a hard time drawing something i either drop it or drag it on for months O.o.
I've been drawing digitally since i joined dA and traditionally since i could hold a pencil in my hand
As for tutorials, here's one i made on patterns
a step by step

here's an interview i did for
if you want to find out more about me
Interview with YuuzaHello, this is *TheGreatMillz33, one of the administrators of #ArtisticAnimanga! Just recently, I've been able to interview one of the group's wonderful artists, =Yuuza. She is well versed in creating traditional and digital works of fantasy. I hope you enjoy the interview!
How about you give a quick introduction of yourself?
Hi there, nice to meet you. I’m Yuuza and I’m an anime artist from Bucharest, Romania.
What other interests or hobbies do you have other than art? Any favorite anime, games, shows, or books that you love?
Other than drawing, I also enjoy playing the guitar (I’m don’t play too well but it’s good enough for me)
As a favorite game, that would be chess, I really don’t play any video games. A recent favorite tv show is ‘the big bang theory’ which I really, really love . As for animes, I watched so many the list wou
