I WILL NOT draw anything against the general rules of DeviantART. I WILL NOT draw porn or anything NSFW. I WILL NOT draw an OC that is designed to be a part of a preexisting story that you are NOT the author of (i.e. Your fan character for Bleach or Naruto). I WILL NOT draw fanart unless I like the show in which case I'll just draw it without being commissioned. I don't want to be paid for that, but feel free to suggest something as long as you don't mind being turned down if it turns out I don't want to. I reserve the right to refuse your commission if for some reason unstated here that I don't feel comfortable drawing it. That being said I don't normally do that so please feel free to commission me!

I never thought before that my style was so particular as to infer that I have "guidelines", but apparently I do. I will not mention any names, but according to my latest commissioner not only am I rude, but I have a "coloring code" that shalt not be strayed from! Yes, I have realized now that I have a particular style, but the anger that's stricken me was more from the foul way this person conducted themselves and as our time went on together I began to pick out each and every flaw that I had previously decided to overlook. Grammar and punctuation was one of these nuances that bothered me so much that even before my patience had worn thin I still felt the need to reach for rag and twist it as hard as I could, hoping it may relieve some stress. I wanted so badly to ask her if she'd heard of a shift key because typically in the English language sentences begin with CAPITAL LETTERS!! Admittedly, though I tried my hardest to be polite, I was probably pretty rude to her. Although, I was thoroughly offended by her need to wait until I had adjusted one thing and sent it back to her with the hopes that it had met her expectations and then dash those hopes only to find qualm with something else! Maybe that makes me an angry person, but aside from that it's made me realize that I should be more clear about what I will and won't do.
To start, I will not longer accept commissions of unoriginal characters. If they don't belong to you or your friend, don't ask me. I won't do it. I don't do nudity or anything NSFW. I'm thinking about discontinuing color in general, but that remains to be seen. I am, however discontinuing chibi commissions. NO MORE CHIBIS. Above all I ABSOLUTELY REFUSE TO USE RIDICULOUSLY BRIGHT NEON COLORS. If you don't like my style, commission someone else. There are plenty of people on DA that need the stress a lot more than I do.

Updated my F.A.Q.! Let me know if you have any other questions and I'll add it to the list. lol I'm cleaning up.
Do you take requests?
I don't take requests and I won't be taking requests in the future. Sorry. If you've seen me offer a request, it's because I was either in a good mood or I know that person and I enjoy gift arting them or I liked their request.
Do you take point commissions?
Yes I do, but only for small things like busts or chibis.
Will you give me points?
No. I'm not going to give you points unless I really like you or your art or your cause. Please don't ask me this because it will earn you a permanent spot on my "don't ever give this person points" list. I hate being asked for gifts. If I want to give you something I will, otherwise... I won't.
This goes for points, requests, AND ESPECIALLY watching you or being your friend. If I was your friend, you wouldn't have to ask.
Are you going to finish Energy24/6!?
Yes. I'm actually in the process of revamping it, but it takes fourth priority to My webcomic, Novel, and commissions. Once I finish the timeline for it though I'll be doing art for it again.
How come you're never in the chatroom? (probably talking about RPdream
Because I hate what it's become. I did try to go back and be involved again, but it's just not the same and it's not fun anymore. Plus the management sucks and I'm no good at running that sort of thing.
What do you sell in your shop?
I took it down, but you can still find some of my designs selling at kingdomotaku.com and check out their DA @KingdomOtaku
What kind of payment do you accept for commissions?
Paypal only! I can negotiate points for things like busts and chibis, but nothing else.
I believe Kingdom Otaku accepts credit cards.
How much do you charge for commissions?
Samples, prices, and everything is in that link. It goes to my artblog. All my prices are listed in my gallery folders too, if I do commissions for whatever's in the folder.
Or you can see my Journal Entry here: lanternleaf.deviantart.com/jou…
I feel like I'm missing some, but I'll just leave it at that.

lol. I'm doing a survey! Because draumstafur told me so! And I wanted to... xDD
Why did you join this site?
I'm not gonna lie... I wanted compliments! xDD And Money... lol. But also because I'd been practicing a long time and I finally deemed my art worthy of posting for others to see. Then I got here and found that the community participation was a lot of fun.
What does your username have to do with you? Is it a combination of your favorite things, or a character of yours?
Well, I've always had a fascination with lanterns, ever since I was a child, so that's where the lantern part comes from. And the leaf part actually doesn't come from my alter ego, Leaf, as I made her after the username. I'm often called a hippie or a "tree-hugger" IRL because of how much I care about the environment. I guess I like plants more than I like people, but because of that I began using a leaf as my personal logo so I just combined my two favorite things to make LanternLeaf.
What is your current icon of?
My DA anniversary picture. It was the piece that marked me being satisfied with where I was as an artist.
How many watchers do you have and how many people are you currently watching?
I'm watching people 73 and have 63 watchers. lol. I'm not that popular.
Do you have more than one account?
I have an old account, but I don't ever go on it.
Name 3 of your favorite artists on DA.
What deviant do you admire because of their personality?
yuumei because she cares about the environment and her artwork is just so meaningful.
How many people on here do you actually know in reality? Post their avatars.
Do you comment, fave, or both?
I try to comment everytime I fav, but sometimes I get so lazy...>.> Usually I comment more than I fav.
What do you typically post on deviantart?
My finished works that I've finished. Sometimes I post scraps... It's all finished digital art. Commissions and trades...
Do you participate in clubs or contests here on DA?
I participate in clubs! I'm in a lot of them.^^ Sometimes I'm too busy to be really active though. I participate in any contest that interests me!
What is your most popular deviation?
Of course... my most popular pic is my "NaruSaku-Finally" fanart... I liked the couple at the time and, I mean, I'm grateful for the attention, but... Really? Fanart? I guess it's to be expected, though, since I'm not really popular.>.>
What's your favorite submission in your favorites gallery?
lol. I know that seems fast, but it's really a hard decision!! I have so many that I ADORE!! I mean... ugh!! I gues I just love this the most because the characters are mine and hunterGON is another one of my favorite artists!!><
What are the things you wish you could draw better?
BACKGROUNDS!!!! Seriously! Scenery is my BIGGEST downfall!!!! UGH!! I must practice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!><
Are you a subscriber?
YES! And I plan to keep it that way....>.>
How many hours a day do you spend on DA?
Are you a fast, slow, or medium typer
I don't think I'm especially fast, but I don't type slow...
What is your favorite emoticon?
I use and and of course. But I think is still my favorite.
What is the most annoying thing people ask you?
"Are you okay?" I know it sounds weird, but just... ugh. I'm fine, okay? I'm ALWAYS fine. Seriously, I'm not the kind of person that gets angry at things. I like to rant sometimes because it's funny, but it's usually an act. I'm actually very passive, but people seem to think I have some kind of temper. I also hate it when people tell me to calm down or feel the need to physically stop me. if you want me to stop doing something, then say so. Only children continue to do things just to annoy you... That's got to be the only thing that really pisses me off.
What is the most annoying comment you get?
I don't think there are any terribly annoying comments that I've gotten. It's little frustrating when people ask questions that I answered in the description...
What inspires you?
Art and Literature. Believe it or not, music rarely inspires me. It isn't often that I hear a song and go "I have to draw!" It's more like I see something I like and go "OMG! I just thought of something!" or they come to me randomly. Most of the time, a story or a poem is what really inspires me.
Do you use any traditional media?
I actually draw everything out in pencil before I scan and Photoshop them. I used to use colored pencils, but to be honest, I can't deal without the undo button! And I experiment with colors a lot, so it sucks to choose a colored pencil, color it and then realize I want something to be a different color...>.>
Do you associate people online with their icons?
Sometimes. I try not to though, because sometimes people have misleading avatars. I purposely put I pic I drew in my avi so people will see my art when they look at my avatar. It's my opinion that everyone should do that... but to each his own.
Have you ever suggested a Daily Deviation?
Oh, I guess not. I should though. I've always wanted to have one of my pics suggested and you know what they say! "Treat others how you want to be treated!"
Everyone has considered leaving DA once or twice. Have you? Why?
Only on my old account because of spam and I wasn't all that involved. But never with this one.
