What do I call you? Calling you "Faster" or "faster-by-choice" is kinda awkward.

I've got quite a long list of nicknames I've accrued while on dA for all these years but you are free to call me:
Keturah (kuh-TOOR-uh, my actual name)
November (my fursona's name)
Lonny (short for Cephalon, my Inkling OC's name. My Splatoon clanmates call me this. I prefer this, not Ceph. Please and thank you!)

You're a furry? What does that mean?

It means I'm a huge fan of anthropomorphic animal characters--ones that have human traits such as the ability to talk, walk upright like humans and the like (Bugs Bunny, the Lion King, Sonic the Hedgehog, etc.)! As a result I'm drawn to things that features these types of characters, like Sonic as I mentioned above, Pokemon, Splatoon and some other things.

It does not mean I have sex with animals or wear my fursuit only for sex. Please do not let the deviants of our fandom sour your impression of furries. We are a friendly, creative and accepting group of people. :)

What drawing programmes do you use?

Manga Studio 5 and Photoshop CS6

Do you take requests?

99.9% of the time, the answer to this question is no. I reserve those for friends. Occasionally I may do requests via stream or art raffles, but usually you will just have to commission me.

Your commission prices are too high! You should lower them!

The prices of my commissions account for how much time I spend on them, which is why they're high. Sorry, but if you want art from me that badly you're just going to have to abide by those prices and commission me. (Or wait for one of those aforementioned art raffles or something but I rarely do these so I don't advise this.)

Do you accept points for commissions?

Points are worthless as far as currency goes. I'm not charging 20 points (or should I say 20 cents) for an art piece. Besides, if I charged points for my artwork, you'd need several thousand anyway. These commissions are part of my income and help me survive!

Can I use your art for...?

NO. Unless you have commissioned a piece of artwork from me or are a friend I have given permission to do so, you are not allowed to use my artwork for ANYTHING without my say-so.

I saw your artwork on (insert website here). Should I ask them to take it down?

Only ask them to do this if they are using it in some way without my permission (i.e. tracing it, calling it theirs, removing my watermark, using it in their own artwork). If it's a site that I'm on like deviantART, Tumblr or FurAffinity, I'll look into it myself, but as long as they credit me or don't remove my watermark I don't really mind. Just ask me if you aren't sure.

You said something rude to me! You're so mean!

Okay this one, I apologize for if I do snap at you, but creepy, rude, or willfully ignorant comments will usually get a snarky response back. Also sarcasm tends to occasionally fly over my head and I may interpret that as rude. It just kind of annoys me sometimes when people make obnoxious comments or ask me questions I've already answered a bunch of times.

Can we be friends?

Not by asking, we can't. I prefer to make my friends naturally.

In addition, I REALLY do not like when people comment on my profile (or worse, send a note) just saying hi. I get wanting to try and start a conversation but just saying hi doesn't give me much to go on and doesn't tell me anything about you. If I get a note like this, it WILL be ignored. Please, if you're going to talk to me, have something in mind to talk about so we can actually have a conversation.

Will you draw more of (insert thing here)?

Only if I'm in the mood. Please don't hound me about this because that will only make me less likely to draw the thing you're asking about.

Can I draw your characters? Can I request a commission that involves them?


B: Usually the answer to this question is also YES, but it can vary depending on your idea! Just send me an inquiry about it and we can talk about it more.

PS: Please do not use my characters for your own personal projects or RPs. I really don't want my characters involved in something I know nothing about or worse involved in something weird or creepy. I wouldn't do that to your characters so please don't do it with mine.

.:My Everything:.



"Hey, the name's Cephalon! Next to me is my star, my bright light, my wonderful Krystal.

Let's see... how to describe Krystal... well she's a sweet and adorable firefly squid who literally lights up my world. And for a cool guy like me who can't sit still and gets in over his head sometimes, she's super patient with me and really helps set me straight. And gosh, is she ever beautiful... I'm really lucky to have her. Krystal thinks I can be a a dork and a worry wart sometimes, but it's okay. I know she loves me, heh.

We've been a thing for about 3 months now. Never knew life could be so bright with my Krystal before... No way am I ever giving this up anytime soon."



Kry, I'm really glad you're my friend... I don't think I'm very good at making friends and keeping them, but I'm glad I met you and that you've been with me for these past 6 months. I appreciate that we have so much in common, that we get along so well and that we can brighten each other's days so easily. It's funny because I think about how you find friends when and where you least expect it, but I'm thankful that you're in my life and for all the time we spend together. I'm always gonna be here for you when no matter what and I'm thankful that you're there for me even when I'm at my worst. Goodness knows I need it.

You're like a sister to me and I'd do anything in the world for you. I really treasure our friendship and I enjoy your company and presence; I really don't know where I'd be without someone like you to stick by me all this time. I love you and I want to love you for as long as I can, just like Krystal and Cephalon will for each other.

Hi there. Wanna say that I really like your work. Quick question: is there still plans for your Mario related projects? No rush, though. Take your time on them if you need to.
