The NSFAQ (Not-So-Frequently Asked Questions)

Q: Who does what?

A: We both make the dolls (obviously), but Digilee handles all of the graphics and webdesign while Goo takes care of the written portion, HTML encoding, and he owns the webspace.

Q: What do you guys use?

A: We both use MSPaint. Goo isn't proficient enough with Photoshop to use it and Digilee just doesn't like it.

Q: Why do you guys use the manga base so much?

A: Goo uses the manga base because it's what he's most comfortable using. It's what he learned to make dolls on. He can and does use other bases from time to time, but that's his favorite. Digilee doesn't like manga bases, though, so if you don't like them then it's best to stick with his dolls.

Q: I want to adopt [insert doll name here]. Can I?

A: All of the dolls are up for grabs except for the dolls in the Special section. If you want a doll in the Special section then we're sorry, but those were specially made by us for other people or for special reasons.

Q: Do you take requests?

A: Yes, we both do. Just e-mail us at gooleedolls@puddleofgoo.com with a very good picture of the character you want us to make (or a really really good description and who you want to make the doll. Note that Goo won't make any Digimon, Pokémon, or Yu-Gi-Oh dolls and Digilee won't make any Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter dolls. Goo is also the one who likes making fanfiction OCs the most. Neither Digilee nor Goo will make Dragonball dolls.

Q: Will you make me a layout?

A: Digilee makes the layouts. You can try asking him. Couldn't hurt. He just might say no. If you have seen Goo's layouts and want him to make you one, the answer is a big no. Goo hates webdesign and he isn't very good at it, especially since he lost Dreamweaver.

Q: Will Goo make a background for my doll?

A: Once again, couldn't hurt to ask, but the answer will probably be no. He basically makes them using a lot of clipart and only makes backgrounds for dolls that "need" them. If you make a request for a doll you might luck out and Goo will ask to add a background to it, but it's unlikely.

Q: Will Goo listen to [insert song title here] and make a doll based on it?

A: NO. N-O. Big no. Why? Goo is very particular about his music. Extremely particular. His song dolls are based on the feelings certain songs give him. His vision of a song doll may conflict with yours since people have different interpretations. You can request a doll with very specific details based on your vision of a doll from a song, but don't ask Goo to listen to the song. You can mention a song title and if you're lucky Goo will like it and make a doll on it (although if you look at his favorite bands, his tastes are obviously rather unique), but it won't be your vision so what's the point?

Q: Will one of you make a tutorial on doll making?

A: It's possible, but highly unlikely. Goo is the writer and he doesn't think he's good enough at dollmaking to coach people on making them. There are tutorials out there already if you are desperate to learn how to make your own dolls.

Q: Who is that on your layout?

A: Actually, we don't know. ^_^; If you know, feel free to tell us. Digilee got the image to make the layout for someone else who then decided not to use it, and the layout came to be our's that way.
