Fred rarely takes on commisions as he is too busy with his own work and is generally uncomfortable drawing characters other than his own. But if you want to ask, the best way is to send him an email.
Fan works are fine, we encourage our readers to be creative when MegaTokyo inspires them, as long as it's respectful toward the characters.
We even have a Fan Works forum section just for these sorts of things. Can I use images from MT on my own site? Certainly, as long as they are labeled as coming from MegaTokyo. Is there ever going to be a MegaTokyo anime?

Warmth is a story idea that Fred has been kicking around and occasionally working on since before MegaTokyo began. What is a dating sim game? There are several subgenres with varying levels of interaction, ranging from games built around long passages of text interspersed with an occasional multiple choice question to games where level building is required to advance. They often, but not always, contain adult scenes. Many of them are adapted into anime series.
Did MegaTokyo invent it?

All the comics are available for reading on the web. You can also ask questions in the Story Discussion part of the MegaTokyo forum. How much time has passed in the story? Piro and Largo have been in Japan for about two months. Chapter 0 spanned fifty-two days and each chapter after that through Chapter 9 is one successive day. Chapter 10 picks up again nine days later.
They were surprised to find that an adversary of theirs from the game lives in Tokyo. In addition to what is in the comic, Thomas Knapp has published 5 books and 1 short story about MegaTokyo Endgames. You can find them in print on Amazon, as well as for the Kindle, Nook, and Kobo e-readers.
Will Piro and Largo ever get home? That would be telling. When are we going to get backstory on the characters? Back story is developed and shown in the comic when it is relevant to the current story arc. That is to indicate when a character is speaking Japanese. Where are things located in MegaTokyo? Several locations have been mentioned in the comic.
The Japanese characters tend to have darker hair, except Junpei who dyes his various colors. Colored versions of the characters can be seen in Dead Piro Day comics, the book covers, and the posters and prints sold by MegaGear. How do you pronounce Piro? Piroko is for Quake and other shooter games, Pirogoeth is his Endgames character. Yes, he does prefer playing using female characters.
Where did the names Piro and Largo come from? Piro is a pet cat in the dating sim game Kanon, it was named after a Russian meat-filled bun called a piroshki. MegaTokyo is itself the name of the city in Bubblegum Crisis. Other characters may be skeptical. What does the cool thing do? Where did the idea for Ping come from? Ping is an amalgamation of robot girls archetypes from anime and dating sim games.
What is the truth behind Miho?
But a lot more has been revealed in chapters 11 and Which characters are based off of real people? The real life Tsubasa asked for his character to not be involved in the comic anymore. When is my favorite character going to be in the strip again?
Merchandise Can I buy comics or Fred's artwork? Fred sells original art and fine art prints though his Megagear store.
The original art are one-of-a-kind originals, both of the panels that go into the comics as well as non-comic illustrations. The comic panels are pencil, but the non-comic illustrations are often both in pencil and colored with Copic markers. Fine art prints are prints of these same artwork or of full comics, on fine archival paper and using a high quality printer.
The original arts are more expensive than the fine art prints, but they are often worth it. What about tshirts and other swag? Fred used to sell t-shirts and other swag through the Megagear storebut his t-shirt printer and dye-sub are both broken and he can't justify the cost to fix or replace.
So those items are not currently available. Based on the interview with Pukey, the conclusion now learns much more heavily towards the scam side of things. Another person, Chris Conlon, tweeted that his picture was being used without permission.
As of this writing the developers list has been changed to only include 3 people, Psychoactive Charm the man in the suitMichael Harms the person of record for the campaignand the aforementioned Virgo Hiroshima no record of which could be found online. In reviewing the persons online presence I found that they follow MDE on Twitter, to which they explained they had followed them since high school because the videos and pranks were funny, but that they were not involved with the campaign or any prank.
The picture on the phone is from the Dark Skyes Kickstarter page and is the person identified as Virgo Hiroshima. The name and photo match the identity of the unnamed person I referred to in the last update. Thanks TSP for posting this to the comments before I had a chance. Did everyone just pull out? What do they have to do with the Dark Skyes campaign?
Remember the picture of the developers? So they like pranks, big deal right? Then Sam released the following video. Warning, it gets pretty offensive at the end.
In he video Sam states: Could just be a coincidence. Either you recognize Dark Skyes as a prank that will result in a funny piece of gag software at bestor you believe that this entire situation is a orchestrated takedown of Michael Harms legitimate attempt to make a MLP game.Fun With:Deviantart Flash Games
This brings us to the final point. Either way, Michael would be home free. The next response from Michael, also posted on March 10th was much more defensive, understandably so. He says in part: A lot of people have expressed interest in seeing the alpha build, as well.
Saying that he has no time for PR is either the defense of someone with nothing to show, or one of the worst Kickstarter campaign organizers of all time. This strategy has been seen before. The creator makes a number of shill accounts to pump up the pledges in an attempt to restore faith amoungst backers then they back out at the last minute, or simply pays themselves back with the Kickstarter funds.
I reached out to Michael the night we posted our original Dark Skyes announcement asking if he would be open to an interview, and the next day he messaged me to say that I could interview him and gave me his Gmail address.
On the 10th, after the accusations had started, I emailed Michael 10 questions.
