Have a question? I may already have the answer! :D

Updated July 27, 2013

Do you take requests?
->NO. I'm sorry, but if I started taking requests, I would be swamped. Currently, I'm ignoring any requests.

What about commissions?
Not at the moment. I really want to, but I'm busy with some personal stuff at the moment. What I'm trying to do is get things set up on my end so I can do either sketches or OC reference sheets. Start out simple with stuff I can do quickly and move on to more complicated stuff.

Why do you have so many reference sheets? Are they your OCs?
Unless stated otherwise, those are all characters from Doctor Who drawn in the style of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. There are so many because I realized there was an abundance of pony!Ten on DA and decided to correct this imbalance. I did the reference sheets because not only are they quick, but because I can show off each character's cutie mark without worrying about composition so much.

Will you draw my fan character/OC/this scene from my fanfic/a comic?
Sorry, but no. (And doesn't this count as a request?) The only people I will draw ponies for are friends I know in person. Same goes for story illustrations and comics. Depending on the complexity, that's anywhere from six hours to several days worth of work for a freebie. 

Are you going to draw [charcter]? / Have you drawn [character]? / Will you draw [character]?
PLEASE check my Master List first. Chances are, I've already drawn the character you're asking for. :)
If you can't find the character you're looking for, I may or may not be planning to draw them. Here's how to tell:
        Doctor/Companion- They will get a reference sheet.
        Major/Recurring Character- Very good chance I'll be drawing them.
        Minor/Bit character- Most likely will not be drawing them.
        Spin-off/Audio/Comic Character- No. If they're a companion I've "met", then maybe.
Please keep in mind that I'm just one person. I cannot draw every single character that's ever been on the show and therefore I must draw the line somewhere for my own sanity.

Are you going to draw a reference sheet for [character]?
Sorry, but no. I went and got severely burned out on the reference sheets, so now I'm only doing them for companions, Doctors, and some major characters. I'm not going to draw a reference sheet for everypony for several reasons:
          1. Those things get incredibly tedious after a while.
          2. I hate spamming people's messages and flooding my gallery with what are essentially variations of the same picture. 
          3. It's really, really hard for me to pick a cutie mark for a character I know almost nothing about.

Will you draw a Dalek/Cyberpony/Weeping Angel/other alien?
No. Trotsworth already has some amazing Daleks and Cyberponies. Even Davros! And TheLastGherkin has a Weeping Pegasus. I'm not going to do any of those because I'd essentially be copying their designs. As for any other alien, it really depends on if I can find a suitable MLP translation. (Humanoid = pony, Silurian = dragon, Sontaran = Diamond Dog, etc.) 

Will you draw more Sherlock/other series?
Probably, but keep in mind that I can only focus on one series at a time. I have already done a few Sherlock ponies, but considering the demand I'm getting for Who, I'm not going to do all of Sherlock.

Why is this character a(n) earth pony/unicorn/pegasus?
I choose pony types based off of the characters' personalities and an occasionally consistent system I made up. I deliberately made all of the incarnations of the Doctor earth ponies because I like to think that it shows how much humanity's rubbed off on him. Still, it all comes down to personal preference. You can imagine/draw these characters as whatever kind of pony you feel is best. :)

What does [character]'s cutie mark mean?
Woo, boy. That's a question for a whole 'nother FAQ. I'm currently working on a guide to all these cutie marks. Stay tuned.

I hate this character.
Look, it's okay if you don't like a character. Nobody says you have to. But please remember that other people might like that same character. Please don't leave hate in the comments. Drama can explode shockingly fast online and I'd rather not deal with flame wars in my gallery. (Especially since I've got so many pictures and I don't get a notification unless the comment is a direct reply to me.) From now on, I will be hiding those kinds of comments as a precautionary measure. 

I hate My Little Pony.
Once again, that's okay too. I don't expect everybody to like the show. (My best friend doesn't care for it at all.) And I understand it's annoying when That Thing You Hate starts seeping its way into your fandom. I'd appreciate it if you didn't leave your hate in my gallery, though. To my followers: If somebody does leave hate, please let me deal with it on my own. Do not reply, do not flame, do not go to their page and leave hate. That's not cool, and Princess Celestia will be very disappointed in you.

Can I use one of your character designs/cutie marks for my avatar/emoticon/Facebook/etc.
Here are the general rules for using my stuff-
If you WILL NOT be making money from it- then it's okay with me as long as you credit me. This includes:
            Avatars, chat icons, emoticons, forum signatures, etc. 
            Using the designs as a reference for your own drawings.
            Using the cutie marks for your own characters. 
            Making free downloadable papercrafts.
            Commissioning a plushie based on my design.
If you WILL be making money from it- Such as selling prints, making things to sell based on my designs, etc. Basically, if there's money involved, then the answer is "Absolutely not, unless I get a cut."  If you're unsure about any of this, please ask me.

Can you help do an animation?
I'm sorry, but I haven't the time, skills, or software to do any sort of animation. The same goes for programming games of any kind. If, however, you'd like to use my designs for such a project, please see the previous question.

Will you join my RP?
Thank you, but no. I don't really RP.

Why haven't you responded to my comment/question?
It's probably one of several reasons. Either I'm not at the computer, I'm really busy, I can't think of anything substantial to say, I forgot, I was swamped with messages, I read your note but forgot to reply, or you asked me a question that I've already answered repeatedly. 

Your reply made no sense.
That'll happen. :D No, either I thought I was replying to someone else or my brain decided to step out for a bit.

Can I make a suggestion for your mare/stallion base models?
If you want to, but please keep in mind that I can't make something as awesome as generalzoi's Pony creator because I lack the necessary skills and software. My main intention for the models was to provide a springboard for other people's character designs, which is why I didn't include things like clothing, mane/tails, and accessories. 

How do you art?
I usually start with a sketch either on paper or on my tablet. I play around until I get something that looks good, then do lineart and colors as needed. I use a Wacom tablet for most of my sketching. For lineart and very simple pics, I've started using Inkscape. (free, open source software) The rest I do in Photoshop.

Why do you ship Master/Derpy?
That whole ship actually started out as a joke. I noticed everyone kept pairing her up with Ten and I thought I'd be all different and ironic...and then it grew on me because that pairing is incredibly hilarious. It's also very one-sided. Derpy is head over heels in love, while the Master merely tolerates her because she's actually a brilliant physicist. Sadly, that sort of skill set isn't in demand in Equestria, which is why she delivers the mail instead. (Also, in my headcanon she's partially deaf and has strabismus, which the Master is able to help her manage.) So to him, she's not so much as a love interest as she is somepony he's not likely to kill. She's never going to change him or his ways, but while he's in Equestria he does mellow out just a bit. 

On a side note- I don't really care if you call her Derpy Hooves or Ditzy Doo. I know who you're talking about either way. But I personally think of her as Ditzy "Derpy" Hooves. This is because Delgado!Master tends to be more formal and calls her "Miss Hooves". It just looks weird to have him call her "Miss Doo". 

Okie-dokie, I think that should cover everything so far. I'll be updating this if you all have any further questions. 
...well, lots of the same questions, I guess. Check back every now and again to see if anything's changed.

Random question time!!! I don't know if you'd ever considered drawing her but I'd like to know what kind of body color you would see for the Osgood?  (from The Day of the Doctor)
I ask because I think you have a really good sense of.. style? art? for body colors and such and I kind of want to draw her myself but I always pick the wrong body color unless it's white.. x.x

I couldn't see this question in your FAQ (and if it was in there, than I was just overlooking it by accident...), so I'm going to ask: how do you design/draw the cutie marks? / what program do you use to draw the cutie marks for each character? I've been designing my own ponies on :icongeneralzoi:'s Pony Creator, and creating cutie marks for my characters out of pre-designed cutie marks on :icon8-bitspider:'s Pony Me 6.4 (Name Generator/Cutie Mark Maker) - however, I would like to create my own cutie marks. I was just curious as to what program you use, because you're really good! I love your work! :)

I draw and design them in Photoshop. First I do the sketch, then I trace over it with vectors and save it as a separate file in case I need to use it again.

I see you've answered the question so I'm going to let you know this.

I'm doing a triple crossover of things, and ponified Doctors will show up in it, either as main characters or in the background during some points. I would like to use a few of your pony doctor designs for the comic. I have a few of my own, but I love yours. X'3

Can I suggest characters from the Tommy Westphall theory that Doctor Who falls into?
Can I use a historical character such as The Beatles or will Shakespeare?
Can I use fictional characters that have popped up in Doctor Who such as The Crew of the Enterprise (Kirk in particular) or the cast of Casablanca?

Oooh...I was looking at your Master List, and I noticed a little something....

Is there any chance that you may, at some point, add the TV companions Katarina and/or Sara Kingdom to the to-do list? I know both of them had *extremely* short runs (Katarina was in about 1.5 serials, while Sarah Kingdom managed just 0.5 serials in total), but technically they were there; barely. Even though they're often not counted by most fans. ;)

I thought Plato dated a poet and the relationship didn't end well. Or he didn't get cast in the role he wanted. "Well, screw you! You don't get to be in my city!"
