FAQ

Hey! I’m gonna answer some frequently asked questions here. Do me a solid and read through this before sending me a message. Thank you!


Do you accept commissions?

I don’t take commissions, but I am open to projects like zines, book covers, etc. If you’re a company looking for an artist, please feel free to message me. 🙂


How long have you been doing art?

My whole life / just a few years. This one is hard to answer clearly. I’ve been interested in art since I was a kid, but I’ve only been serious about art for the past few years. I took a long break from art in my 20s because I was working/busy with life/career stuff.


Will you design a tattoo for me?

No, sorry! Your tattoo artist can likely handle your design needs!
Read some thoughts on this from a tattoo artist.


Can I get a tattoo of your work?

YES!!! You are welcome to get a tattoo inspired by my existing artwork! (PLEASE SEND ME PICS!!!) I just ask that you buy a print or a coffee.


Will you work for free? I will promote you/pay you with exposure! Shipping is really expensive—can I just have a hi-res file?

Nope!

However I do sketch requests on Twitch on the last Friday of every month. Come by the stream and we’ll explain how it works.


Follow For Follow? Please check out my Twitch / Instagram / Youtube / etc!

“Follow for follow” isn’t a great way to build an audience. Most of those people aren’t really going to be engaged with your content. It’s much more important to have people who actually care about you and your work. Numbers aren’t that important. Think quality over quantity in terms of followers.


Can you please give me advice on art, streaming, youtube, etc etc?

I receive a lot of emails and DMs asking for advice, and I’m super flattered. Unfortunately I can’t offer advice to everyone who messages me because it would take up a ton of my time (mostly because I never shut up!)

However, if you have questions about art, streaming, etc please check out the DreamChaser Discord Server. We have #art-biz #strim-biz and #crowdfunding channels. The whole community is full of artists and streamers who have lot of really helpful advice. I also try to answer questions there. I also use topics discussed in this server as inspiration tutorial videos on YouTube.


Can I get a critique on my work?

Yes, there are a few ways to to do that.

1. Post your art in art-critique section in Discord. If someone from the community has time they may be able to help you out. 🙂

2. You can redeem a paintover/redline from me while I’m streaming on Twitch. These are usually quick 10 minute critiques.

3. If you’re a Twitch subscriber, you can submit your work for an in-depth 1 hour critique of your work. I will do it on stream and post a video on Youtube. (Check out the #sub-critiques channel for details)

Fatventure Mag, Vol 1 is LIVE on KICKSTARTER!

The kickstarter to fund the zine I’m contributing artwork to is officially live! Back it on Kickstarter

Here’s a summary of the project:

Fatventure Mag is a printed and digital magazine focusing on active lifestyles beyond the boundaries of weight-loss culture. We’re shining the spotlight on work by fat-identified women and non-binary writers and artists who love spending time outdoors, communing with nature, and being active, no matter what “fitness culture” has to say about it.

Let’s Do an Art Trade!

I’ve always wanted to do art trades but never knew who might be interested and I felt a bit too shy to ask. I thought it might be cool to come up with a way for people who are interested in art trades to let others know that they’re open to it. That’s what sparked the idea for April Art Trade. (That and it’s my birthday month and I just wanted a bunch of art for my birthday!)

The idea is that you’d let people know you’re interested in participating in art trades during the month of April. Look for artists who are open to trades or ask a friend! Once you’ve completed the trade, tag the recipient and use the hashtag #aprilarttrade.

#AprilArtTrade Rules/Guidelines

1. Ask a friend for an art trade!
(Please don’t message artists you don’t know unless they are open to random trades!)

2. Tell each other about your interests!
(Don’t ask for a specific drawing, just let them know your favorite characters, animals, etc.)

3. Set a range for the amount of time you’re both willing to spend on the art trade.

4. Draw something for them and post it with the hashtag #AprilArtTrade!

That’s it! Go make art for each other!

Extra Life Rewards Sent Out

Quick update about Extra Life… all of the rewards have been sent! Thank you again to everyone who donated to the campaign. It was my first year ever doing Extra Life and together we raised $142, surpassing my original goal. Thank you again. 🙂

A post shared by Jacey Chase (@jaceychase) on

Leading up to Extra Life, I did a bunch of sketches of Final Fantasy characters. Anyone who donated at least $10 got access to these. Anyone who donated at least $20 was promised a high resolution download of a finished piece. I wasn’t even sure what the piece would be, just that it was going to be FF6 related. I ended up turning one of the sketches into a finished art nouveau inspired piece that incorporates a lot of elements from the game.

I really enjoyed participating in Extra Life and I will definitely do it every year. If you’re interested in getting a hi-res download of this piece it will be available again next year as a reward, as well as some other new stuff hopefully. Thanks again to everyone who donated and everyone who came to the stream to hang out!

Extra Life Goal Met! Thank you!

Thank you so much to everyone who supported my Extra Life campaign and to everyone who hung out with me on stream!

It was my first year participating in Extra Life and we not only hit the goal, we passed it with $142 raised. In total, Extra Life participants raised over $7 million for the Children’s Miracle Network. That’s amazing.

If you donated at least $10 to the campaign, sketch rewards have already been sent out so check your email. The $20 reward (hi-res artwork) will be going out in a few weeks.
