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 :la:
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:… by yuumei… by chi-u
here is a cool dA preloader… by devart

2. Can i use your art for a project or trace/copy/reference it?

Yes, you may do the following things: use my art for school projects (don't forget to credit me), you may trace it, you many try to re-create it digitally or traditionally or with whatever media you want, you may draw my characters (actually i love it when other people draw my characters!), you may repost my art on your website with the condition that you link back, 

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 or :iconyuuza:, if it's on another site then you must link back. Please don't crop or remove my watermark!

If you want to use my art for a poster for your band or thing, even if you don't make any money off of the event, you have to ask me first! Don't use my art for events without asking!

Don't repost my art on facebook, instagram, pixiv, tumblr, etc, without crediting me clearly in the description with a LINK to my gallery. Posting it without credit is like saying it is yours, which is a huge no-no.

DO NOT PRINT MY ART ON BAGS OR IPHONE CASES OR ANYTHING OF THE SORT AND SELL IT!  Making a profit off of my art is a huge no-no!

3. Can i edit your artworks?

No. You can recreate them, learn from them, do studies, but not directly edit them. Please don't use my work in photo-manipulations, don't crop it, don't create renders with it, don't apply filters to it and repost. And definitely DO NOT remove my watermark.

4. Do you do requests?

Only for very close friends, sorry ^^;

5. 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… by niaro) 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.

6. 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.

7. 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… (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 Pattern Tutorial by Yuuza

here's an interview i did for :iconartisticanimanga: 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?

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 :love:. As for animes, I watched so many the list wou

How did you came to the name Yuuza? I'm currently thinking of a nickname, or switching to something else which I will stick with forever, but don't know what. 
Yuuza Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
well, when i came up with it, i thought i had invented it on the spot. I wanted something sounding japanese but not having any actual meaning. Later on i found and old OC with the name Yuuza i had forgotten about! :lmao: it was a male oc btw
Well to come up with a good name, keep it short, easy to pronounce and don't add numbers in it, no one remembers numbers.

I also learned to draw hands from the Burne Hogarth book! Although I still am shaky at applying some of the lessons, lol.
