My Bio

Domian Maysa Waters (pron: dah-MEE-ahn) (dah-doll, dog; MEE- meet, meat, me; ahn/awn- all, awful, ought)...also Maysa is from the singer, Maysa | 20 years old | Female | Libra (star) Capricorn (moon and rising) | October 21st, 2001 | Olney, Philadelphia | Social Anxiety Disorder and Depression...and Misophonia/prone to Sensory Overload


I am an alumna of the Creative and Performing Arts High School here in Philly, and I currently go to UArts, now studying Illustration. I don't really know what I'm going to end up doing in the future, but I hope it's related to character design or maybe book illustration. I mostly draw my characters, which I have too many of. Of course I try to think of the best ways to develop them, and I'm in the progress of concepting ideas for a book series or 2.


Commissions, requests, art trades and stuff like that are closed right now, and I'm not likely to open them back up any time soon, mainly because people would come at me all sarcastic or disrespectful about either the way I draw or ask them if we could do something.. and I don't know why I never spoke up about the way some people in the past have interpreted my OCs, like they would give them a completely different skin color that was NOT in their ref, like lightening them or something dumb like that...Or I would give them a reference that doesn't look like the character

Idk what else I had on here so...

I've been working on video collages/aesthetic boards for my characters for a while now, but the only place I can upload them (because I don't want a copyright strike/warning) is either on Google Photos or Google Drive. Some of the ones I made need some updating but you can click this link to see the ones I made for the members of Cyrano. https://photos.app.goo.gl/ckvBQQD1xfsWcsW86 I'll update whenever I upload more
