|This is an adaptation of someone else's piece. Thought Shadow Link, Sheik, and Midna should have fun in the Shadow world with a really competitive wii game. ^~^ This is kinda old, but it's one of my faves.|
|A character I created, loosely based upon Kid Icarus. She's a pheonix chick with angel wings. She's pretty tough. I really struggled with the fire-brushing on this one. Couldn't get it to do what I wanted it to do. :/ Any advice? The fingers and toes are kinda clumsy, but it was a quick pic, ~1 hour. All comments and advice welcome...|
PrologueGeneral Andoen walked the dirty streets of Peor somewhat skiddishly. This was a very poor part of the restless merchant city, and he was anxious to be through it. Each eye, from the venders to the beggars, seemed to be sizing him up. He was cloaked, hood raised, and trying his best to be unassuming. He had private business to accomplish this evening, and it was best that he not be seen. As he made his way rather briskly down the street, he came upon the slave market. A few men (one rather large and wealthy in appearance) were haggling over a rather tender looking (though tussled) young girl who looked to be in her twelfth year. Her black eyes stared at the men timidly, and her unkempt hair did nothing to detract from her overall beauty. She was just one of several slaves, all ages and genders, lined up against one side of the street, all chained together neatly. Andoen shook his head. The Palace had no need for more slaves, nor did his ranks need any more filling. As he squeezed betwee
I recline upon my bed and stare blankly through the night,
Wond'ring how it is to sleep in peace and quiet respite,
Trying to grasp a memory, an ounce of recollection,
Trying to remember my bygone bodily perfection.
My eyes flutter and they shut, like butterfly-whispered beats,
But they do not receive the rest for which I silently entreat.
My eyelids heavy on my being, without even slight relief.
This web of shadows lace my windows--might I count each leaf?
Silent lucidity trecks the track of deathly night
As I worry and I wonder, putting shutters on my sight.
I toss and sweat and dehydrate. Irritated, I contemplate
Each hour of recorded time during which I am awake.
I heave my breath constantly, drowned in my reflections--
And the phlegm and the acid in their nightly inspections.
I watch the placid ruby digits rythemically pass the time.
I watch the shadows dancing upon the cielinged dust and grime.
I watch the steady breathing of my companion at my side.
I zone. I space. I get up and
BattleI am sensitive, little Jill
Watching Jack fall down and break his crown
In the well.
If he'd just listened,
I tried to tell him.
Jack is gone.
I sit and stare
At the water,
The chill creeps up and draws me in
And tries to swallow me whole.
But no! Run away!
Save thoughts for another day!
Run! There're others
Run! Grab your hood-
To grandma's house you go!
No time to stroll on slow!
She might have an answer!
But the wolf is out to get me.
The wolf is out to get me!
I run on fast,
But he's hot on my trail!
I'm trying to outrun him
But I'm afraid I'm gunna fail!
Will I fall
Like Jack did
Into the well?
I'm runnin' home!
I'm runnin' home!
I don't see the wolf anymore
But I know he's out to get me!
When I get to the house,
I want to stay out!
The door is open.
The glass is broken!
There's blood on the floor!
I don't want to see more!
There she is!
Yet there she's not!
IT'S THE WOLF!
He got her!
But there's no h

Hi. Call me "Kay-chan" or "Kegan". I may change my name/alias from time to time, but no alarm. If you must, just call me "Kay" or "Blue-Rose". Either will universally suffice.
Anyway, if there is curiosity about it, I am a christian. I am also an american. Due to the tainting of these titles over time, I cannot completely take pride in having either. I am honored to take up the title christian because it means 'little christ', and I long to be like Him, but because of the centuries of injustice and ignorance associated with the title 'christian', I cannot completely embrace the joy of the title. Same for the title 'american'. I appreciate my freedom, but my countrymen and I disagree on many things....I cannot take pride in a country who obsesses over celebrities and gorges on ridiculous amounts of wealth and vanity while half the world starves and suffers. I don't want to be like that, and I cannot take pride in a title that associates me with those things....I'm sorry....
Regardless of my strange ideas and ideals, I am an amateur artist. I do it as a therapy and an entertainment. I simply enjoy it. I do not see myself ever getting as good as my fellow artists here, in visual or literature, but I do so enjoy viewing/reading works of art. ^~^ And socializing with people around the globe. I am grateful for the time others take for me. Please do talk with me! I love to gain new perspectives on all sorts of things. And don't worry about offending me—I have three brothers. Offending me is a tough job at this point. So, if you have questions, comments, or recommendations, go for it! I may need them.
Anyway, time is wasting. Don't waste your life on my rambling. Go live it. We only have one....and no telling when that one will end. Best be sure of the important things while there is still time, and live a full life while we can.
