Q: Can I have a higher resolution version of a particular painting?
A: I'm afraid you can't. Most of my art is digital art, so the high-res version of the image is the original file, apart from the sketch. There are however exceptions. If you are the one who commissioned a particular work, and you buy the rights from me. Then the work is yours, and so is the high-res version. Prices to buy the original work vary from commission to commission, please ask for them.

Q: Do you take commissions?
A: Yes, sure! For now, use the contact form to enquire about a commission. All details (theme, size, materials, pricing) will be discussed by e-mail.

Q: Why "lildragon"?
A: lildragon means "little dragon". I have always been fascinated by dragons as a child, for various reasons. Dragons are strong and elegant creatures. If there would be anything I'd like to be, it'd be a dragon.

Q: Why "Black Lotus"?
A: If I were to say that now, it would spoil the entire story of the upcoming story I intend to illustrate. Please hang in there for a while :-)

Q: What materials do you use to make your works?
A: Obviously, that depends on the type of work we are talking about. In case of digital work the answer would be: Photoshop CS and my Wacom Graphire4. Occasionaly, I experiment with Corel Painter IX, Illustrator CS and Flash MX. In case of traditional drawing methods, the answer would be: Winston Aquarel, Gouache and Acrylics. For sketches (which are often meant to be scanned to be coloured digitally) I use F-HB-B graphite pencils.

Q: Is your art limited to the manga style?
A: No, certainly not. I'm studying to be become an Illustrator for children's books or comics. This does not mean I confine myself to this particular style, I'm willing to try other things. For example, I'm also perfectly able to draw portraits or animals or other realistic things. If you would like to have such a drawing commissioned, you can always ask by using the Contact Form.

Q: What is this RSS and why are you using it?
A:
RSS stands for either "Really Simple Syndication" or "Rich Site Summary". The purpose of this RSS system is to allow people to keep track of updates of a particular website, without visiting it. There is a special script on such a site (usually a .xml file), that is loaded into a program or site (called an RSS reader). In this program, you will have numerous RSS links inserted, of the sites you want to track. Whenever you open that program (or click "update), the program will check all those sites (using the RSS feed code) wether updates have been posted or not. If there are, you can visit the site immediately. This is incredibly useful, and that's why I decided to incorporate this into my site. You can find the link to my RSS feed on the bottom of the homepage. For more information, check Wikipedia.
