As much as we would like to support you, we have to stay loyal and professional to what we do to ensure that everyone is treated fair and equally, and new pieces of art can be created for everyone to experience. Therefore we have put together our FAQ to answer some of the most frequent questions we receive through our email and social media channel. 

Please respect that all images provided are under copyright by Darren Wilden Fantasy Art.

Do you provide tutorials?
No. But we do encourage those who are interested in becoming an artist to search on YouTube or other social media channels for inspiration and techniques.
Will you edit my photos?
Can I edit your photos?
No. It is a clear violation of the Darren Wilden Fantasy Art copyright (also see our Terms of Use). If you are the owner of a license for using one or more pieces of art for your prints, merchandising, advertisement - an editing option has been granted. This option does NOT include our regular license. If you are in doubt of which license you have, make sure to contact us.  If you can have purchased a website / blog license your editing is limited to cropping only.
Do you offer free licenses?
No. As much as we would like to provide everyone with free services, we cannot run a professional art studio this way. These pieces of art are made with a professional approach to both the artistic view and further technical processing (manufacturing, print production, TV production, magazines, digital marketing, and advertising). Fan art have been made available as prints starting at very low prices, so everyone can enjoy these worlds in every room of the home. 

Can I bargain a price for a print or license?
No. We have done everything possible to make all these options available for fans and followers, so all prices are final. FineArtAmerica are paid for every print, materials and handling of orders, so most of your spending goes to them. Our website, blog and social licenses are very low already, to ensure everyone can make good use of it for their marketing purposes. 
How much time do you use to create a new art piece?
About 2-3 days. Ideas, taking the photos, drawing, 3D modelling, and painting the details to ensure the best experience takes time, so a lot of energy is put into these creations to ensure that fans and followers will have an enchanting journey into these fantasy worlds.

How do you create your pieces of art?
Imagination plays the biggest role, but I usually take a lot of photos on my journeys, and stock them for later use. If I do not have what I need in my stock of over 5000 photos, I either model it in 3D or digitally draw and paint it.
Do you have a background with art?
I have worked as a designer in my early years for LEGO, and my world of creating art just took off from there. As a kid I used to sketch draw all the time, so being creative is a big part of who I am.

Who are your fans and followers?
I am very fortunate to have a wide variety of people from around the world following the social media page. Some of the people are Game producers, Movie producers, Writers, Photographers, Passionate art fans, and fans who enjoy following the worlds I create. Hopefully the work I do will also make you want to join Darren Wilden Fantasy Art on facebook. I hope to see you there.

How often do you post a new piece of art?
Quite often, however, I can be busy working on other projects at times. But I always try my best to give fans new worlds to escape into on a regular basis. Many fans are very loyal to me and I want to stay loyal to them as much as I possibly can.
