So, I decided to make a "F.A.Q." where you can find all the important and basic information about me and my work gathered neatly in one place. I'll probably add more Q&As later, so let me know if there's a specific question you think should be included and answered here.
Q: What's your name?
A: My name is Johanna-Stephanie (In Greek it's pronounced Ioanna-Stefania).
In my every day life I use my middle name and everyone calls me "Stephanie".
Q: How old are you?
A: At the moment, I'm 21 years old.
Q: Where do you live?
A: I live in Athens, the capital city of Greece.
Q: What languages can you speak?
Q: Do you go to University/What do you study?
A: Yes, I'm a University student (3rd year). I attend the "National and Kapodistrian University of Athens"
in the department of "Social Theology". "Social Theology" is a science that studies religion and its effects on human societies throughout history. Apart from the main courses that focus on various religions, I also get to study courses on art, sociology, philosophy, psychology, ancient languages e.t.c.
Q: What kind of job are you aiming for after finishing University?
A: Ideally, I'd like to be able to support myself by making money as an artist.
My dream is to also work as an otome-game/visual-novel artist/developer and to make my own manga series.
I'm also preparing for another kind of profession that's connected to the degree I'm studying to get.
Q: Are you in a relationship?
A: Yes. I've been in a relationship with my boyfriend for 4,5 years.Q: Why did you choose the username/artist name "Stephie-Jo"?
A: "Stephie-Jo" was originally a nickname that I came up with in the 9th or 10th grade. I don't remember how I came up with it,
but I was probably looking for something that sounded unique and ended up combining my first and middle name
to make it up. I've thought of cuter "artist names" since then, but I suppose this one is the most personal.Q: Do you have any other social media accounts?
(I post my art there too, so feel free to follow me, if you'd like)
Q: How long have you been drawing for?
A: I've been drawing traditionally ever since I was very young (basically ever since I can remember).
I've been drawing digitally since November of 2015.
Q: What tools do you use?
Graphics Tablet: Wacom Intuos Comic
Program: Clip Studio Paint
Q: How often do you draw?
A: As often as I can manage, especially when I'm feeling inspired. However, since
I have a pretty tough schedule and there are a lot of times when I might be tired or
not in the mood, I'm not able to draw as much as I'd like, unfortunately. I usually
draw for a few hours every other day, or, if I'm lucky, on consecutive days.
Q: Do you stream your art process?
A: Yes, I do, occasionally! Come join!picarto.tv/StephieJo
(make sure to follow me, so you get notified when I'm streaming)
Q: Do you have any drawing tips?
A: I'm still a beginner, but I'd love to share my current
drawing techniques and general tips with you.
Don't hesitate to ask if you ever need advice.
Q: Do you do requests?
A: Occasionally and only for watchers
. I always make sure to notify my
watchers when requests are open, so if you're interested in getting
some free art from me, keep an eye out for any updates.
Here is my Request Box
Request Box - OPEN!Hi everyone!Q: Do you do art-trades?
I've decided to create this request box for the times when I want to experiment a little bit and improve my drawing skills, as well as enhance my gallery with the types of artworks that it lacks.
I will only accept a few requests (1-4) at a time, so please don't be upset if I don't accept yours.
Also, note that I will only draw the characters I like the most! <3
What I Offer:
Type: Since I'll be taking requests for experimental purposes, I will not be specifying the type of artwork that you will be receiving. You may get a sketch (simple/coloured) or a complete-drawn chibi/bust/half-body/e.t.c. drawing. It will sort of be like a surprise.
I WILL DRAW: girls, boys, kemonomimi, fantasy-themed characters.
I WILL NOT DRAW: 18+ concepts, extremely masculine characters, old people, fanart, mecha, anthros.
A: Art trades are always open, but I'm only able to accept them occasionally (unless the offer
is too tempting to turn down). If you're interested in trading with me, you need only DM me
and I'll let you know if I'm available.Q: Do you do commissions?
A: Not yet, but I'm preparing to open commissions very soon.
Q: Can I use your art for...
A: If you want to use my art for something, please make sure to ask me first!Q: Can I draw your characters?
A: I don't mind it if you do, but please
DO NOT DRAW MY CHARACTERS IN MATURE (NSFW) CONCEPTS!!
This is something only I
will do when/if I choose. And of course, please don't claim them as yours
and make sure to credit me as the creator. <3
If you want to know more about me, or feel like asking me a question that wasn't included here,
please visit my "QnA Box" and ask me anything!
QnA Box! (Ask me anything!)Hi guys!
So, along with the "Meet The Artist" meme (click to see), I decided to construct an "Official F.A.Q.", sometime soon, so that anyone who is interested can find out all the basic and important information about me and my work easily.
However, before I do that I decided to open a "Q&A Box", where you can all ask me questions! You can ask me about anything: my art equipment, my art techniques, my interests, my opinions on something e.t.c. I will answer anything as long as it's not offensive and it doesn't put me in an uncomfortable position! Some of your questions may even make it to the "Official F.A.Q.".
Go ahead and leave a comment, asking me anything you'd like to know!
