1- Do you take commissions or sell publishing rights to existing images?
YES. ALL of them! I have so far done the Dunkleosteus as a commission, and have sold non-exclusive publishing rights to use some of the megafauna size comparison charts I've done in children's dinosaur books. Notable past clients include Penguin (Dorling Kingsley), Deisterweg and Ken Derby!
Not only are ALL my works available (as I have so far sold non-exclusive right-to-publish), but better still, I keep all my PDFs, so I can easily re-arrange any of the objects and make new JPEGs at will!
2- What other projects are you working on/with?
-"Operation Black Mesa" mod for Halflife 2
-Ken Derby for covers of historical information books
-A secret graphic novel of my own
Projects I have previously worked on:
-"Faded Haven" (indepenent game) by Pheonix Dream Entertainment.
-"Red Alert Zero" (my own mod planned for Red Alert 3- though still in concept stages as I am programming the damn thing myself)!
-"Red Alert Paradox" mod for Red Alert 3
3- Can I make a custom artwork (3D sculpture, graphic, painting, Minecraft work) based on your work, for fun/my own use?
YES you can! Just make sure to either link back to my page or credit me by name (whichever one of my names you want to use)! HOWEVER- you CAN NOT use them if you want to use it in a commercial project, advertising project, or video game mod.
4- Can I show your images elsewhere on the net (eg forums) or elsewhere on DeviantArt?
Yes you can! Again, just make sure to credit me, and either link back to my page (or retain the link I write in my works), and DO NOT WATERMARK IT or cut out my own watermarks!!
But again, if this is for some kind of project of yours, we need to negotiate!
Also, I'm fine having my images hosted in DeviantArt showcases/collections also! If you asked me to host a work, and I didn't get back to you, the simple answer is that I was probably overseas ><
5- Are you a metalhead?
6- Are you a Furry?
HELL NO!! (The fake ears are a long story of me creeping out my friends at parties- the mixture of dark gothic and cute kawaii seemingly has a jarring psychological effect!
7- Will you join my club?
MAYBE- I'm super anti-social though. But if I get too many messages or alerts from it, I'll probably pull out.
8- I've noticed an error on your works, do you mind if I chime in?
YES! Please do! If you see a translation error or scientific innaccuracy (that hasn't been addressed in the comments), then feel free to say so. It has been thanks to some very helpful people providing paleo evidence for sauropod posture, and some corrected Russian translations that I have provided some of the works I did. However, I do have some exceptions:
Some threads do not allow comments simply because I'm already aware the information is obsolete or later proved incorrect (my Megaufauna Mk2 chart includes many animals that have been since proven obsolete, or anatomically different since I published it)
Some of my images are blatant hoaxes. If the date is April 1st, you know I'm making it up to troll people.
HOWEVER. There are a few 'corrections' I reject and forward to Paleofail.
a- "I don't like that dinosaurs have feathers now" (evidence that some definitely do, evidence suggesting some were mostly bare skin- anything else is your personal opinion)
b- You want your favorite dinosaur depicted bigger than it really was.
c- You want me to make a dinosaur bigger because someone on the internet said so. If it's not a reputable source, not interested.
