Greetings!

My name is a secret but you can call me Rika ;D
I'm a 26-year-old German-American who was born in Fort Carson, Colorado but raised in Nuernberg, Germany. Got the American half from my father. I'm currently studying English at the FAU-Univerity for becoming an English teacher in the future. I am interestet in alot, but art-wise I'm kinda stuck with Pokémon and Monster High related stuff and some very own creations for ages now. That is why you will find alot of these on here.

Besides art, I also adopted my very on Pokémon Browser Game called Pokemon-Villa that is keeping me busy.

Anyway, if you like my stuff, feel free to fave and comment it and also don't forget to watch for instant updates. :3

F.A.Q.

:bulletpink: What programms do you use?
GIMP and PixelEdit for spritework
Photoshop CS5 White Rabbit and Paint Tool Sai for drawings
Flash on some rare occasions.

:bulletpink: Can I use some of your Sprites?
NO!
Unless you aren't the owner of said Fakemon, you cannot. Case closed. I will not answer to this questions anymore.

:bulletpink: Will you join my project as a spriter?
NO!
I have my own project(s) to work on. I do not have the time for another one.

:bulletpink: Okay, will you at least sprite some of my/our fakemon then?
Probably not.
Definitely not for free, unless they are so awesome that I cannot resist spriting some of them. So you can show me your fakes and maybe be lucky some day to get one for free but do not count on it.

:bulletpink: Do you take Commissions? Point Commissions?
YES.
Check below which commission types are avaliable at present. You can ask for something else as well but I might say no.

:bulletpink: Whats with Art Trades and Collabs?
I DO!
Just Ask ;)

:bulletpink: Why are your commissions so expensive compared to others?
Because I'm calculating with real money here. Compared to that, my comissions are still rather cheap. I finance my premium membership with them. If it's too much for you, then think about this: Time is worth money, especially when you have to use up your time for somebody else. That is how every legitimate working place in the world works. Art requires time. So PAY for the work you want somebody else to do for you. It's simple as that. And if my "workforce" appears to be too expensive for you - find somebody else. But from what I know, I already am one of the 'cheaper ones' on DA.

So I just updated my old commission sheets and added a new one. I figured that I was calculating with outdated numbers and sorta got less than I was actually expecting. This probably also was due to the fact that I calculated with USD and not with EUR. Now I used current figures and the currency I'm familiar with. This explains the slight overall price increases. They are still pretty low in comparison to other Artist here on DA. Oh, I also changed them to payment in advance.

I'm thinking of using the commissions tool of DeviantArt again...but since DA is taking a fee for that...I would have to increase the prices again to get the amount I imagined for my art. So...what do you think about that? :/

Furthermore I actually might add Sprite Commissions again. Still not TOO into that Idea. Mainly because I still have that one free request sprite Pokemon line to do that I really struggle with. And I am afraid that I get similar commissions that I just am unable to do for whatever reason. And I don't want to disappoint... :/ So...what are you guys thinking? Should I? Or better not?

Monster High Mystery Adoptables
I seperated the Mystery Adoptables from the pure headshot commissions because I want to offer sort of fullbody adoptables as well.
So if you want to support me, why not via commission? :)

Status: open

Further Info:

- You are not allowed to resell a mystery adoptable.
- You can purchase a mystery adoptable for somebody else. But tell me beforehand for whom it's going to be.

How to commission:

Just send me a note with the necessary information. If everything is settled, send the points/money and I will start working as soon as possible.

Payment Info:

- Payment in advance!
- Payment via Paypal, Donation or just send the points straight away
- If you want to pay with art, ask if that's possible. However, I expect a similar quality as I'm providing.

Monster High Fullbody Bio Art Commissions
Since I really LOVE doing those (over 30 own entries to the fandom, thank you very much!) I thought why not offer commissions properly..you know...since I do not stink that much at doing those anymore and all :D I hope the prices are reasonable? So if you like my style and you want to support me and my work, why not via commission? :D

Status: open

Further Info:

- I usually work with visual references (eg. pictures) but if you only have written references, make sure that they are as clear and distinct as possible.
- I will send you a sketch as soon as its done. You will have to confirm or suggest changes in order to make me go on with the outlining and the coloring.

How to commission:

Just send me a note with the information.
