Hello there, and welcome to my profile! :)

My name is Liesbeth, though online I prefer to be called Elby.
Here on Deviantart I still go by "Elby-manga-addicted" though my artist name has changed to "Elby MA" which is short for both "Elby: My Art" and my current profile name.

I love fantasy, cats and a whole host of geeky things, so you'll see a lot of those here.
I'm really, really, REALLY bad at uploading regularly, but working hard to change that!

If you want to have a chat or ask me a question, feel free to do so! (Though I warn you I'm much more active on tumblr and pinterest than here :') )

Sailor Moon is bi... Right?
So yeah I've been watching Sailor Moon Crystal. And besides being overrun with nostalgia, I also cannot get over the implication that Usagi is bisexual/romantic. So, naturally, I had to draw something for it :p 

Sailor Moon/Tsukino Usagi belongs to Naoko Takeuchi.

Alouetta - Wood Elven Winter Design
Here's the full outfit, uploaded separately so I don't need the mature content warning the lineup has. [lineup of this outfit: ]

Ken'Ichi Alouetta is a character in my books "Tales Of Eminae" and belongs to me.

Wood Elven Winter Outfit Design
Yesterday was my last free day before my classes start again, and I spent it working out this design!

This is an example of how most wood elven women dress during winter in Eminae (the setting of my books).
I used my character Ken'Ichi Alouetta as a model, and thus chose the colours according to her scheme, but these kinds of outfits are worn in all sorts of colours. Wood elves typically wear long coats witch heat charms to protect their wings whenever they go outside, but I chose not to include that in this design because I am planning a separate sheet for coat designs.

I absolutely love designing and working out outfits like this, but it is very time consuming, so we'll see if I can upload more in the future!

The Dragon's Coven - body overview
Phew! This took me much longer to finish than I had hoped!

Anyway, here's an overview of some of my characters. They're the main focus of the first book in my Tales of Eminae series, and will continue to be important throughout the story. This was an exercise for myself to draw their different body types, with all blemishes and scars included. I've also referenced all their faces off their face claims, which will I be practicing on more in the future. What gave me the most trouble was their hands; in the story people who use magic very often will have their magic leave traces on their hands, which is something I wanted to make both visually appealing and a clear indication of the type of magic they use. But of course I was way too ambitious at first, and the things I came up with were MUCH too complicted to draw over and over again... But I'm quite happy with what I ended up settling on :)
Also, I'm going to be using these as templates to draw a gazillion outfits on, lol. Hopefully I'll find it within myself to finish and upload them!

Hello there!
I once again got tagged, so, for a change I'm gonna be not-immensely-late with replying :XD:

I got tagged by :iconcamprodon: So here I go, answering her questions! ;)

Her questions:

1. Do you have a pet? If yes, what kind of animal and what's its name?
Why yes, I do! I have three lovely cats and a very cute dog! They all have their specific owners within our family, so, my dearest loveliest, sweetest of all time pet is the adorable Ciska! :iconcutekittenplz: (<- that's not a picture of her but she's about that cute, well, very much cuter, but you get the point! :p )She's been the cat that rules my world for.. I think about eight years now? I love her more than anything or anyone in the world :heart: :heart: :heart:, truly, I'm not kidding ;)

2. What is the worst lie you ever told?
Uhhh... I don't know! I really dislike lying, so if I ever do lie, it's always a white lie, because otherwise my conscience will keep haunting me about it forever! And... white lies are kind of by definition not really bad, y'know, they're used to prevent arguments and stuff? I seriously haven't got a clue what lie would be the worst... But if it'll make you feel better, I once lied about my ex? Would that be bad? D:

3. Who would you like to hug if you are given the chance? :D (Big Grin)
Many people actually! For starters, my own characters, I would really like to sort of comfort them for all the hurt I bring them? It's really horrible, but I love them too, so I'd like to let them know that :3  aaaand... My mum? Since I'm in dorm school and will go to college next year, I'm not around that often and I know she misses me a lot, so I can never give her enough hugs! Aaaaand, my cat. I'm always in ofr hugging my cat! :D  And then... My best friends who I haven't seen in over a year... And other friends whom I haven't seen in a way too long time... And that one special person... And... My favourite fictonal characters, though I don't suppose they'd return the hug since they have no idea who I am... ^^;  I'm gonna stop now before the list gets so long you'll stop reading! :XD:

4. Are you interested in politics? Why (not)?
NOT! Absolutely not! For one, it makes my head spin! so complicated and we Belgians seriously have too many politicians and it's just too damn hard to keep it all straight when they start to argue! Like, I'm interested in the things politicians want to change in our country, I'd like to know beforehand when they decide to cut off certain buses and stuff, but all it's really ever done to me is frustrate me, and so, whenever someone starts about politics, I just get this irresistible urge to either stop listening or throw a table at their heads... Yeah, not a fan of politics!

5. Do you believe in god? Why (not) and if yes, can you please describe the image you have in your head of god?
I do, in fact, believe in God! I'm a catholic, and not afraid to be honest about it. I'm aware a lot of people think I'd want to convert them, but honestly, Jesus thought us to love and respect the people around us, like ourselves. If we give ourselves the freedom of religion, it's only natural to give others that freedom as well :) So no worries! I only preach about my religion when someone makes ridiculous assumptions about it like that one ;)  And my image of God? Hmmm... I sorta figure he takes many forms? Like a leaf flying through the wind and through the window inside the house, the small crackles of the fireplace, the amazing feeling of sand through your bare feet... Simply put, I see him as all the good and beautiful things in this world. Generosity, a compliment from a stranger, I see him in all those things :) While controversially, I also kind of see him in the bad things we do to ourselves... Because he gave humanity the freedom of will, and so some people think it's God punishing us, but I rather think it's one of the gifts he gave us, and that it's us humans who decided to drag in to ruins... But! There's this quote my mum often uses, and I actually have no idea where she gets it from, and it goes "God works in mysterious ways". And she says it when there's something I cannot fathom, something I don't understand, or when I'm surprised how a horrible event could have led to a happy end. And I think that's also a way to see him? Like, we do what we want, but eventually he'll make sure some good comes to us as well, even if we can't really see how he's planned all that :)
Oh, and I should probably also mention that as a kid, I used to think he was in the clouds, but not like, living atop the clouds, but rather, that he was the clouds, and that when he'd help you, they'd shape into two big hands who'd hold you and keep you warm and safe and... it was a really weird idea but thinking about it now, it seems kinda cute? I guess :XD:

6. A short one C: Mountains or the sea?
Arrrgh, difficult choice! Let's see.... both are cold (often) and both can be fun... one has bugs, other has too many people... Both have great views... One has beautiful plants and wild animals, other has shells and sandcastles and dipping your toes in the water.... I guess it's a tie for me? (sorry omg I'm so bad at making choices! :doh:)

7. Another short one: Books or films?
Are you kidding me?! I can't choose again! :o Books are often nicer because the story usually had more depth, but movies often have gorgeous music and everything looks pretty... Ugh, can't I say both again? It'd be so much easier if I'd been given a specific example! Like, I'd choose the Harry Potter books over the movies, but the Middle-earth movies over the books! That good enough of an answer for you? :p

8. What is your favourite/ most used emoticon on dA?
Uhmmm... I don't really know? I guess it'd be one of these: :squee: :glomp: :D ^^; :p :) or :XD:

9. Do you consider yourself a patriot? Why (not)?
Uhhh... What's a patriot? (gotta look that up!) Ah-ha! I get it now! No, I don't suppose I'd be a patriot, I don't even particularly like Belgium! I mean, it's a good country to grow up in, it's also very woman-friendly, and there's lots of opportunity, but I realise that like any country, there's ups and downs and there's also many negative sides to Belgium... I'm even relatively sure I'll eventually settle down in some other country, so no, I don't like Belgium more than other countries, and I wouldn't defend it 'till death without a very good reason to, not because it's the country I happen to be born on. We're all human, and we're all born on this planet, that holds much more meaning to me than countries...
10. Tell me something about yourself almost nobody knows. It can be everything, from a broken leg you once had to a secret hobby or a fandom.

Uhmmm... I guess something not a lot of people know about me, is that I'm actually very much into the cardgame yu-gi-oh :) I really like it, and have since I was a kid, I sort of just dropped it for a few years because I couldn't get my hands on a specific deck, and I kept losing against my brothers. But I picked it up again around last year, and with some investment, I now have the deck, and I'm busy building a lot of others :p I would like to tell you, for all the people who know the game, I'm not the kind of player who really plays to win, I play because I like my deck and the cards in my deck, and I enjoy the most to play very long duels where two players just have fun showing the other what their deck can do, on a friendly basis ;)  (I'm not a ruthless exodia user like so many ohters out there)

My questions:

Oh no! I've gotta make my own questions now? Darn! Okay... Here goes...

1. What was your favourite tv-show as a kid, that you still like to watch now?
2. What's your greatest inspiration for your art?
3. What's your favourite childhood memory?
4. Any idea what you'd wanna name your kids? (If you ever have any?)
5. If you're in puberty, or out of it already, what's one of the things that changed about you since you were a kid, that you're grateful for?
6. What is a song that gives you goosebumps? Or the lyrics make you emotional? And why? :D
7. What's a childhood dream you still wanna make come true?
8. Would you rather go back in time, or forward to the future (you can come back), and why?
9. Random one! What do you like and dislike the most about each season?
10. How would you want to die? (weird question, I know, but like, if you would die that way, you could die contently)

I tag:

:iconellietje: :icongromba86: :iconaustencovers: :iconanzuli: :iconmiyatoriaka: :iconrikachamadesu: :iconclessxmint:
You guys don't have to do this if you don't feel like it, but if you want, go ahead, I'd love to see what answers you come up with! :D
And of course, anyone else who feels like doing this you don't need permission! ;)

  • Watching: My adorable cat, sleeping on my lap :3
