🡒Who are you?

hi, i'm Elfen! you can also call me Elf or Eiv.
i'm in my 20s and i'm a trans male (he/him) asian-american artist!
i make art as a main source of income, but i'm incredibly slow at it due to disability.
my accounts and work are rated PG-16, so please don't follow me if you're under that age!

🡒I'd like to appeal to be removed from your blacklist or correct information!

you can e-mail me through my business e-mail.
i recognize that some of my information may be incorrect or inaccurate, as i receive it second-hand and i do not check up on the people i blacklist/block.
this does not, however, guarantee a removal. in addition, being removed from the blacklist doesn't guarantee you being unblocked.

please don't e-mail me asking why i blacklisted you. either you know, it's for my personal comfort, or you broke my T.O.S. (though i will always inform people of T.O.S. strikes). remember that my work is my space and i have a right to be comfortable within it!
(if you are rude or passive aggressive to me I have the right to not respond to you nor help you. please keep these interactions professional, thank you.)

🡒Do you take commissions/art trades/requests?

Commissions ($$$) open periodically, and I will usually make a post for them (on Toyhouse exclusively at the moment). My commissions page here is a WIP.
Art trades (Art for art) can be discussed if we're friends.
Requests (Free art) are never open.

🡒Can I take inspiration from you/your art/your designs?

mild inspiration is fine, but i will contact you if it's too close for comfort.

🡒Can we be friends?

i'm really awkward and introverted, so i'd rather not be asked this!
if it happens, it happens! but please don't try to push uninvited conversation with me, especially if we're strangers.
also please keep in mind that just because we are in the same discord server or we've interacted a few times, does not necessarily mean we're friends. i am uncomfortable with people claiming we're friends when i barely know them.

🡒Is the big watermark really necessary?

yes. don't remove it.

🡒Why are all of your characters male?

i put parts of myself in every OC i make, so it's what makes me most happy. also i'm gay.
also i don't owe you anything. i make OCs for me, not anyone else.

🡒Do you know about this discourse/how do you feel about this discourse?

i don't want to hear it or participate in any drama or discourse, thank you.
if i need to block someone or boost a PSA, you can let me know of that.

🡒I have x problem with you/You’re following/liking something bad!

please PM me about it as soon as you're comfortable doing so and i can remove/unfollow it ASAP!
if you have a problem with me personally, as well, i would be glad to discuss it in private. i often do not realize when i'm making a mistake so it helps me to learn when i'm told it's bad.

🡒Why are you constantly making adopts/commissions/stuff for us to pay for 🙄🙄🙄

(the wording of this question is just a joke i'm sure you guys would be respectful)
art is my "full time" job, a.k.a. my only source of income. and to be honest, most, if not all of what i earn just goes right back into creating art and such for you guys.
to give the quickest summary possible, what i earn goes into keeping the Vixenkin CS up and running (and implementing new things), food for myself, and other accommodations for myself as i am disabled and currently bedridden. very little of it is ever spent on extra little things like art for myself nowadays.
