Dreaming... by AeiriMuse Dreaming... by AeiriMuse
"Just dreaming... dreaming of you."

2006


Yes, this is a drawing I did of Frosty as he slept under my computer chair on my mother's birthday. We both hung out all day together, with her on our minds.... and he kept my feet warm.

I think of all my drawings of him, this one has always been the highlight. And this was back in... 2006. What a whim of that day, eh? XD I'm just playin'. I haven't tried to really draw just Frosty in a while actually. I should hunt down pictures and redraw him for refs of Seriph or something. hehe

Meh. This is actually my second account on this site. Long ago, I was trying my best to come up with the best name for my main character. Nona is her initial name, but then she has a code name SilverStar. At some point in my story, she uses it as a last name. It's a really complicated story and background. It came a long way since my art seven years ago.

Though, silver is a rather common color/metal nowadays. I suppose I like it for more than one reason. It also helps that I live in the "Silver State." lol

Either way, again, it's nice to meet another Nona. (I'll never forget your name. XD) Hopefully, you'll get to see more of my art than these from last year. I've been pretty set back art-wise. School gets in the way a lot.

Woudn't you know it, this is my second account here too xD

I'd like to hear that story, if it's all right with you. :) You also have an OC named after you? <3

Yes, it's a common name, I suppose xD; My username was an attempt to crete something strong yet beautiful, and Thesilvertalon was already taken xD nevada, no? Cool, I live in an apple. :D

It's certainly nice to meet you too, Nona =D And yes, I'd like to see more of your art, but I won't push you. I'm busy with school as well xD;;;; (aiming to become a scientist =P )

Well, it's not my real name. Which is why I sign everything Nona Natalie Rae, or Natalie Rae Spittell. Nona is a nickname I got from a childhood friend, but he was the only one that called me that originally. Then, I named my main character that, and because I kept working to develop her, my friends called me Nona. (also it's shorter than Natalie Rae lol) Originally, canine was the only attribute I could completely convey for my characters because I had a pet dog, so my original name was NonaOokami.

I would love to ramble on about Nona's story, but then I'd be revealing my book series I'm going to create. I apologize, but I've stopped giving out the information about it for a while now. You'll come to find that I no longer post personal art online; I only post requests, gifts, contests, and commissions. (Commissions, however, have been down because I need to re-evaluate my costs.)I do this because I hate having to do stupid stuff like my characters to protect them from being used elsewhere. I spend a lot of time researching names and dealing with my own mental stability putting the info together. (My imagination is... awkward. I think it's cool, but it can be a curse sometimes.) So, I'm not too excited of letting someone listen to me talk about something for a half an hour, when those ideas took a process of a year and a half to research and piece together. (Right now, I'm still working on categorization and a translation of a language in my head to English. - Yes, my mind is backwards with some things. lol)

I'm currently in school for Computing and information Technology and Creative Writing. (Awkward mix, huh?) I chose not to take art classes due to the fact that my only benefit from the ones I've taken are that they provide me work ethic for assignments and they have a due date. (Meaning that I work consistently on them over time; there's no chance of giving up part of the way through.) College level classes are so expensive here, and usually art classes cherish the pieces that I've done following techniques I learned in elementary; which, to me, means I have not learned anything new from them. Writing and publishing jobs, however, have become selective lately. If you have a degree, you are noticed much more easier. *shrug* Computers is my backup. I'm pretty handy with troubleshooting electronics, and I'm good with people. It's also my current job. I enjoy that I've gradually become more adept at it.

Science is cool, I'm just not into it as a profession. A lot of my research for my story has been scientific, though. It's awesome to meet someone going for that direction. You're my future of health, energy, discovery, or protection from ill forces. Right on. :3 I admire people like you. What section do you think you're heading for?

Ps. Sorry for the long response. I've been talkative lately. ^ ^

Oh I like that. Shorter name, person called you that x33 that's adorable. It happened to be my birth name =w=;;; And I suppose 9 is a lucky number because of that? xD;;; I don't know. *gasp* you have a dog? I love dogs I wish I had one ;w;

A book series? ooh~ It's kind of disappointing that you don't post your personal art anymore. >: Even copyrighting your characters doesn't prevent people from stealing, though, I know that through personal experience. So I find I'm not the only one whose imagination is eccentric to others... But listening to someone talk to someone else is actually refreshing when the recipient wants to listen.

Ironically, none of my OC's stories have science involved, unless you count genetic mutations. =P Aww ^///^; I'm not sure if I'm exactly future of health or energy material. Discovery? Maybe. ;) *gets bricked* xDD I'm searching for an interesting sub-field in chemistry. I just know radioactivity and biochemistry are no-no's. Radioactivity: VERY dangerous. Biochemistry: VERY complicated. But then again, it's always fun blowing things up and setting them on fire (so long as no one gets hurt.) Have you seen flame tests? When you place a metal into fire, the fire turns a very pretty color. =3

Um--what do you mean by Information Technology? ^^; Sorry I'm a little slow. I think it's interesting that you work with computers as a job. It seems to be something not too many people can really grasp.

Wow, this reply's kinda long too. ^^; But I do enjoy talking to you, Nata--...Nona. =D What say we continue this in note....? If you want, if you want. :)

This is SO cute!!!!! This is a drawing of your dog?? So what kind of dog is he? He's so beautiful--like a wolf! Great proportions, pose, and FUR! I love how you draw fur so very much :D

This is actually one of the oldest drawing of him that I've done. He's my pride and joy. His name is Prince Frosty, and he's a purple ribbon purebred American Eskimo.

I guess you can say that over the years I've worked on making the fur look realistic. I've also worked really hard in identifying how to use it around the face to give it more form... and on the legs and body too.

Thank you very much for leaving a comment. =3

No... We didn't train him. He was originally my mom's birthday present. That's why during her birthday and Mother's day I spend the day with him.

Yes, it is a horrible loss. I'm still saddened greatly by it, but she still, and always will, be in my heart and mind.
