8 facts about Leah

Sat Apr 6, 2019, 2:30 PM
I was tagged by :iconstefandorfer: to do eight facts about my vampire lady Leah and since I haven't done a journal like that with OC-facts or other fun in quite some time, I took the opportunity! :la:

1. Post all the rules
2. Post 8 facts about your character
3. Tag 8 other people
4. Post their character's names with their owners

Facts about Leah:

1) Leah is a Brujah Vampire from the "World of Darkness" Pen&Paper. That means, she's a vampire belonging to a Camarilla (= a vampiric sect) clan who is known for short temper and enormous strength.

2) When it comes to women, people sometimes say they're either more smart or sexier When it comes to men, people sometimes say they're either more smart or stronger... So, Leah is really sexy and extremely strong (to say it with WoD-stats: Appearance 4/5, Strengt 5/5) but not smart at all. You can tell her a plan in big detail, she won't remember most of it. The best idea is just to tell her when and who to hit.

3) Once, Leah accidentally killed a man. He was standing on the street, proclaiming loudly that the end of the world was about to come (and so on and so forth) and she completely lost it. In a moment of annoyance blind rage, she hit him in the face and .- thanks to her enormous power - killed him.

4) To gain some money and independence to rent a better place, she aggreed to work in the stripclub of a Setite (Setites are another vampire-clan). On the outside that's the only business she has there, but in reality, she also works as his bodyguard because she's strong enough to kill intruders easily. This gives her some monetary bonusses which she absolutely needs - but it's not completely sure if it's a good idea to work for a Setite even if he never did her any harm.

5) Leah is a completely loyal person. She's definitely not the one to backstab others and she's too trustworthy to expect such things of most others. If she doesn't like you, she'll probably let you know by (accidentally) punching your car into pieces.

6) The tattoos she got were made by a friend of hers. The friend ordered a cheap tattooing-machine and they practiced by just tattooing each other random lines and dots. None of them had any artistic talent beforehand and none of them became a tattoo-artist afterwards... xD

7) Leah got embraced (turned into a vampire) at the age of 23. She's in vampiric society for about 41 years now, which makes her around 64 years old. Still pretty young for an immortal being - let's hope she'll have a long unlife~

8) Even with being such an independent, strong woman, Leah has a pretty unhealthy relationship to Zack, the man who turned her into a vampire. He can basically do, whatever he wants, she would never raise a fist against him - and even while he's the older and stronger vampire, she'd give her unlife to save or rescue him at any second, if necessary.

Bye-Bye Patreon!

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 29, 2018, 9:35 AM

I just deleted my Patreon Creator-Page!

Not because I had to. Not because I'm planning to draw less or stop it at all... but I set myself too high standards.
And I wasn't able to keep up with what I planned.

I always felt like people were lying to me when they told me they loved my art but still didn't want to pay a single dollar via Patreon... but I knew it's bullshit and people shouldn't have to pay or proof that they like my art with regular payments.

So for my own good, I deleted the page. Now I can post all the finished art which I still have in my stash!
I can show it to all of you, I can show you what I did over the past year! I can post new art and show what I'm up to!

... and that just feels awesome!

I don't know if I will reopen Patreon someday or if I'll find another platform for me (Ko-Fi or something like that - the possibilities are endless), but for now, I'll just draw and post, comment and fave and live my creative life ^__^

Yayyyyy no more paywalls!! :squee:

btw.: I won't stop my pledges to the amazing creators which I support. It's just not the right page for me as an artist.

Draw Everything June 2018 - My Entries

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 16, 2018, 12:40 PM

Hello everybody!
I'm working on the Draw Everything June this year. Some of you have seen my posts and my explaination about this, so far... now I wanted to create this journal to keep up with the drawings and see for myself, how many of the drawings for the challenge I've completed, so far.

If you're interested in what this is about: It's the so called Draw Everything June III - 2018 Edition  by SenshiStock
She's posting several pose-references over the month of June (something around 21 I guess) and the challenge-participants have to draw a pic for every pose. No matter if full-colored pic, sketch, lineart, whatever - as long as the pose is visible.

I always wanted to take part but either had no time or no motivation or got to know about this too late... so here I am in 2018, finally taking part in a DEJ. #DEJ3 

Please, if you also take part, tell me, link me your drawings, I wanna see them!
Also, motivation feels great if I'm doing a challenge like that, so I'm thankful for every comment I get on my DEJ-submissions. Please... motivate me! QwQ

Lots of characters for trade/sale!

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 1, 2017, 9:00 AM

Hello everybody!
As you know, I do have many OCs. Too many to take care of... so I decided that it's about time to sort out my collection of OCs.
Lots of unused characters & designs are free to claim. Most are for sale, some are for trade, mostly for some CS which I'm currently interested in.

You can see the complete list of characters I'm giving away in this Toyhouse-Folder

Please offer here in the comments or via note~

Hello everyone!
I'm back with a new anouncement. I started making YouTube-Videos!

Take a look, tell me what you think and maybe also subscribe to my channel if you'd like to see more from me! :heart:

My channel: Elythe

Have a nice day!~

Hello everyone! 
I wanted to bring your attention to the amazing artworks of my dear friend nanako87 today. She's an awesome artist, an incredibly friendly person and great friend to me - and if you don't already know her, give her works a look. 
She does lots of things. There are so many pretty traditional works in her gallery and often she unites marker-coloring with motive-papers and washitapes to give them a vibe of not only drawings but also decorated, unique massterpieces. Whatever you like, I'm sure there will be fanarts featuring some character you like. Also, her OCs are all very pretty and unique and she drew many of my beloved OCs over the past years. If you prefer cute animals, you will find plenty of those in her gallery. Cute kitties, cute Octopi, cute Octokitties...~
Aaaaaaand she does not only present awesome characters on awesome artworks, great fanart, awesome OCs, cute beings and tasteful ecchi, but also makes some peoples dreams come true with tentacles, bondage and more :heart:

She has three accounts - depending on what you like, watch one, two or all three of them and give her some love! :la:

Iesha - Mysterious Dancer by Elythe  Iesha Headshot by Elythe How to handle 36 Chicks by Elythe


1. Iesha is a smokecharmer. She can create and control smoke which she mostly uses for dancing instead of veils
2. Her skin is so dark, that it almost appears to be black. This is not natural dark skin - it's influened by the dark smoke she summons
3. She dislikes cold temperatures and water. She does not need to drink but when she does, she prefers juice over water
4. Even though dancing is even better with a group of performers, Iesha prefers to dance on her own
5. The only animals, she really likes are all kinds of birds. Fish are as scary to her as insects and most others are "boring" or "weird"
6. She is not good at making friends because she feels offended way too fast
7. Iesha likes living in the desert and would not want to exchange this for any other environment at all
8. One of her biggest dreams is to live in a huge palace - not as a servant or slave but as the owner of this building


(tagged by CidSin)
Snowstorm by Elythe :COLLAB: Violet and Sharla by Elythe Violet Galaxy by Elythe


1. Even though Violet is an adventurous Bardulf and likes to explore and go on adventures, she also behaves unexpectedly feminine every now and then.
2. As a creature living in the snowy mountains, Violet can't stand summer-heat and warm temperatures at all.
3. While she hates warm temperatures she still enjoys cuddling with other Bardulf when the nights get cold.
4. Violet likes to look up to the sky. Especially in clear nights when there's not a single cloud above, she looks up and counts the stars.
5. She likes to play tricks on people. Sometimes she'll sneak down the mountain close to a human village and show herself - only a little - so there's no proof she's been there. Afterwards, she enjoys the fun when the ones wo saw her want to tell others because barely anyone will believe it.
6. Not afraid of danger, she risks a lot if she wants to have fun, explore or find useful or pretty things somewhere.
7. Even though she's grown up and old enough for starting a family, Violet doesn't think about this. That's a problem for the other Bardulf because they are only few left and it's important to breed and keep the species alive.
8. The only thing she's really afraid of is electricity because there's no such thing in the mountains and it's like some sort of "evil dark magic" in her oppinion.

Flavie Lalee

(tagged by Nairuna)
KaKAO #151 - Dancing Angel by Elythe  the Dance of an Angel by Elythe ACEO #129 - Lovely Angel by Elythe


1. Flavie is a Falover - this means she actually has no emotions. She just acts like she's happy and friendly all the time.
2. Like all Falover, Flavie's only lifegoal is, to find her destined partner for life. Until that day, her life is incomplete.
3. She uses dancing, to attract more people to be around her. This way she thinks it's easier to meet the one person she's destined to meet.
4. Flavie Lalee has the ability to transform into a little bird to hide from society, fly around and search for that one person in secret.
5. The only thing, Flavie actually likes and collects are golden accessoires and parts of her bellydance outfits.
6. While searching for the one partner for life, Flavie meets lots of other persons. This lead to some "friendships" even though she doesn't realize it and always thinks that it's just a fail-meeting because it didn't bring her closer to her goal.
7. The flower-tattoo on the side of her body isn't real. It's just painted. But there's also a wing-tattoo on her back, which will transform into a pair of real wings when she finds her partner for life.
8. Being a light-falover, she's naturally sceptical towards dark-falovers like Raiga.

Comic und Manga Convention in Düsseldorf

Mein erster Verkaufsstand

My first convention is over! It was an awesome day full of new experiences. I met lots of awesome people, other artists as well as friends who visited me and fans of my works.
This day was just amazing. I finally saw that I don't look boring when my works are next to the ones of other people.
I don't think I'll be able to upload a video about the con because that would be a lot of work but... let me say that it was amazing! And I can't wait for the next cons that I'm planning to attend! :squee:

Elythe auf der Comic und Manga Convention

Diesen Sonntag, am 29.11. ist es so weit: Die Comic und Manga Convention in Düsseldorf öffnet ihre Pforten.
Dieses Mal bin ich erstmals selbst mit einem eigenen Verkaufsstand dabei.
Es ist mein erster eigener Stand und ich kann noch immer kaum glauben, dass alles geklappt hat.
Ich bin unheimlich aufgeregt und freue mich riesig darauf, zu erleben, wie es abläuft.
Falls ihr diesen Sonntag in Düsseldorf seid, sowieso dorthin gehen wolltet oder noch nichts geplant habt, stattet mir doch einen Besuch ab :heart:

Watch 2.0 is coming...

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 17, 2015, 1:09 AM

Hello everybody!
I know, I barely ever write journals filled with random information but I felt like doing it for this purpose.
deviantART is working on an improved deviantWATCH-experience and I'm going to try it during the Beta Preview of Watch 2.0
The purpose of all this is to make it easier and stop billions of deviations and journals from piling up in the inboxes. So far I always loved the options, dA had to offer. Of couse it's hard to go through about 1.000 new uploads once in a while but I don't want to miss a thing so I take my time for this. I want people to see my works as well, so I want to look at the posts of others without being able to miss stuff.

So far dA asks Beta-Testers like me to try the new "watch" for 3 constant days and provide them with feedback afterwards. I also wanted to keep you Up2Date.

If you're a Beta-Tester, too, tell me what you think of this!
If you're not, this is my way of informing you on my oppinion on everything ~

For now I'll just start a little list on what I like and what I don't. This will be edited later whenever I have something new to say about it.
Currently in my oppinion there's quite a lot I like but the few contra-points destroy it all. I want an option to "clear" my inbox like before... Q_Q

:heart: Pro
- Appealing look (same colorscheme as deviantART-App)
- deviations are sortet like on a wall which reminds me a little of a Petersburg hanging
- Nice new "save" (aka "bookmark for later")-option if you'd like to comment on something later but currently are in a hurry
- No need to open billions of new tabs for new deviations because they open in the feed-screen in an overlay
- Endless scrolling (people could spend a whole day on the deviation-page scrolling, faving and commenting if they want)

:star: Contra
- No way to "delete" deviations from the inbox if I've already looked (and faved and commented) on them. It's hard to keep up with everything if you don't know what's new and what's not... There's no "248723947320489324 deviations in your inbox!"-message anymore which might be great for some people but I feel like this is missing the general purpose why I liked deviantART over quick-working pages like facebook where everybody always keeps missing about 1/2 of everything they'd like to see...
- No matter if I watch deviations from a group or if I don't: They show up and really flood my new "inbox" aka. "watch feed" and I can only view ALL Group-deviations or NONE of them. No option to just watch deviations of 3-5 groups I'm actually interested in.
- New Journals & Polls are way too unsorted for my taste
- the important letters ä, ö, ü and ß (at least important for germans like me) can be used in comments but after posting, they're transformed into ü etc. just like on the app... That's a bug which needs to be fixed in both, the dA-App and the Watch 2.0 feature.
- If the comments are deactivated on a deviation, you can still comment on it in the new WatchFeed but the "Saving..."-message never disappears and the comment never actually gets posted.
- If a description is longer, it won't be shown fully. Even if you click on "more" it only expands to a set length. To read the full artist-comment one needs to open the deviation-page and go on reading there.


Journal Entry: Fri Sep 25, 2015, 7:55 AM


I just asked the Random Choice- tool for some names out of the list! Everybody was entered once, these with a x2 behind their names were added twice, just like promised~

OMG, I have something to celebrate with you! The counter hit 1.000 watchers yesterday with raelaus being the 1.000st person deciding to watch me! :la:
I've been waiting for this day ever since I joined dA. First I thought I'd never reach 100 but you all were showing me that my art is worth it! Then I set my goal to 500 with the "500 Watchers - Art Raffle" in 2013. At 700 watchers I felt generous and drew a free artwork ( :GIFT: Jessica and Ice Cream) for Karebear-4ever, my 700st watcher. Over the last year I improved a lot thanks to critiques I got here as well as over on Facebook and thanks to this, all the groups I'm part of and all the awesome people here who are watching and supporting me, THIS JOURNAL is in the inbox of 1.000 people right now... unbelievable!

So now on to the promised RAFFLE:

- Be a Watcher (New watchers are welcome, too! But don't just watch to enter the raffle!)
- Fave this journal
- Tell me in a comment that you want to participate
- Wait until the 31st of October 2015

To enter the raffle twice:
- Create a Journal or Poll with a LINK to this Journal and MENTION me so I see it.

- Tell me why you started watching me and/or what you like most about my works.

Sooo, in a little over one month I'll chose the winners with a randomizer. I'll contact you if you won and you can tell me, what you want from me.

There will be FIVE winners!

They will be chosen via a Random Choice Generator. I'll choose 5 people one right after the other and in this order they'll be getting their prizes:
Nr. 1 will get a free Fullcolor Waist-Up-Artwork of ONE character of their choice (Example: :SS: Ramune Bottle from Hell )
Nr. 2 & 3 will get a free Fullcolor Headshot-Artwork of ONE character of their choice (Example: : BIRTHDAY GIFT : Daisy-chan )

DeviantArtist Questionnaire

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 7, 2015, 6:53 AM

After all these journals in my inbox today, I decided to also fill out the #DeviantArtistQuestionnaire
  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

  2. I'm here since March '10 so for about 5 years.

  3. What does your username mean?
    Back when I joined, my username was "SabakuNoElli", meaning "Elli of the Desert". This was a complete fangirl-name stating clear that Gaara from Naruto is mine because I wanted to be the best fangirl in the world with the best nickname in the world xD
    My current name, "Elythe" is the name I chose after I wanted something more professional that's not a Fangirl-Name. Since I wanted to have "El(l)i", El(l)y" or something similar in it and wanted it to sound nice, I decided on Elythe, which is pronounced like "Alice" just with a smoother ending.

  4. Describe yourself in three words.
    art-addict, oc-lover, mangafan

  5. Are you left or right handed?
    right handed

  6. What was your first deviation?
    A fanart of the "Alice in Wonderland"-Movie with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter:
    The Mad Hatter by Elythe

  7. What is your favourite type of art to create?
    Traditional art in manga-style is my favourite.

  8. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
    Making digital linearts. My lines are always traditional, even on my digital works they're just scanned and edited.
    I'm not a digital artist and I will never be, but digital linearts would make some things easier when I wanna practice around.

  9. What was your first favourite?
    This awesome Sprite of the Pokémon Trainer Green in Harvest Moon Style:
    Harvest Moon Green by Micakuh

  10. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
    Everything I like. I cross-fave a lot. I love good traditional works, but I love awesome digital works, too. Sometimes it's fanart if I'm searching for fanarts of a certain series, sometimes it's Ecchi because it's awesome.

  11. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
    Slugbox definitely. I love his works so much. Even though he's working digital and therefore in a completely different style than I do, I love his works and he's a real idol for me.

  12. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
    Again: Slugbox

  13. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    I got to know so many great people on here. I never thought, meeting people with the same love for art would be so awesome.
    There are many awesome people and I love them all like the friends I see every day. Not a single person impacted my life in any way but all of these great contacts I made here helped me to grow as an artist and as a person. This impacted my life.

  14. What are your preferred tools to create art?
    My colored pencils. My set is a mixture of everything: Polychromos, cheap no-name pencils, Polycolor, Stabilo, Lamy, Vivess... I love them all^^

  15. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    The farm I live on. We do have a forest next door and whenever I need inspiration I just need to take a walk~

  16. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
    Hitting 500 watchers about two years ago was a great moment for me. I didn't believe this would happen any day at all, but it did. I'm glad about everyone of these and the over 400 new people who found their way here since then. If I'll reach 1.000 watchers, I'm sure this will be my favourite dA-memory~

Q+A with Maiga (and Milabra)!

Journal Entry: Sun Oct 5, 2014, 3:00 PM


1. Pick one of your OCs.
2. Fill in the questions/statements as if you were your OC.
3. Tag four people to do this meme!
4. Tell people that they been tagged with a link from your journal

OC picked: Maiga
Dancer-Style by Elythe

1. What is your name?
I'm Maiga

2. Do you know why you were named that?
Because... my parents named me that. I guess it's mostly because it's the name of an ancient goddess my family looks up to, so... naming their child who is supposed to become a great healer and priest by that name must have seemed like a good idea for them... I guess.

3. Single or taken?
T... taken *blushes*

4. Have any abilities or powers?
I'm capable of healing-magic. Is this "ability or power" enough for you..?

5. Stop being a Mary Sue!
Being a what? My name isn't Mary Sue, I'm Maiga...

6. What's your eye color?
Purple, just like the color of Amethysts.

7. How about hair color?
White, but my hairtips are dark blue. The older and longer every single hair gets, the more it turns partially blue. I guess it's caused by the huge sources of magic I grew up with.

8. Have you any family members?
Yes, I  do. My mother passed away some years ago but I still have my father.

9. Oh? How about pets?
Nope. But I hope I'll have a magic creature once. A magic insect or mighty dragon or something like that would be great.

10. That's cool, I guess. Now tell me something you don't like.
People who don't take Healers serious. There are so many people who think that attacking with weapons or attack-magic is the only way to go through life... they love to repeat again and again how useless healers are since they always stay back. I guess they tend to forget who heals their wounds...

11. Do you have any activities/hobbies that you like to do?
I'm traveling around, I do have an important goal... I guess I don't really have time to just spend time on doing random stuff. But I like to dance. If I only had the time to practice it a little more...

12. Have you ever hurt anyone in any way before?
Physically? No. I'm there to heal and help people. It's the work of others to hit bandits and monsters...
And I also prefer not to hurt people with rude words either. But since I'm rather quiet most of the time, sometimes I just get loud and angry...

13. Ever… killed anyone before?
No. I didn't have to. And I'm sure even if I had to if someone or... something... attacked me, I wouldn't know how to react because I promised to use my powers to heal and protect and not to hurt, destroy and kill.

14. What kind of animal are you?
A magical, fluffy rainbow-colored unicorn-cat-dragon! No, of course not, but ... I guess it's obvious that I'm human, so... yeah.

15. Name your worst habits.
Sometimes I take things to serious. I've learned to fulfill my duties all my life so I'm not used to just take a day off from time to time and if others want to, it's hard for me to accept this and relax. I tend to go on peoples nerves with how much we have to go on and hurry...

16. Do you look up to anyone at all?
I... *looks up to the sky* ... My mother is my only big idol. She was such a beautiful, powerful and calm person... I wish that someday I'll be like her.

17. Are you gay, straight, or bisexual?
I'm... *blush* in love with my partner. That's all.

18. Do you go to school?
I learned most of my skills at a temple in my hometown, this is the education I had.

19. Ever want to marry and have kids one day?
I guess, I... well... no... I don't think this is possible... *blush*

20. Do you have fangirls/fanboys?
Fangirls? Fanboys? I thought only popular musicians and dancers or people from royal familys have people like that around...

21. What are you most afraid of?
I'm afraid of not being able to complete the task I've been chosen for...

22. What do you usually wear?
Usually I wear my traditional priest-clothing from the temple of my hometown. It's a hot town near a desert so the clothing doesn't consist of too much fabric but... that's normal because in the temple everybody had an outfit like that.

23. What's one food that tempts you?
I love to eat grilled meat and fish. In the temple where I spent most of my life we only had few things to  choose from and amazing meals made from all sorts of meat weren't on the list so I enjoy whenever I get something like that to eat.

24. Am I annoying you?
Not really... but I'm a little confused about all these questions you ask...

25. Well, it's still not over!
Okay..? I wonder what'll follow...

26. What class are you (low class, middle class, high class)?
Class? Is this about the school-stuff you were talking about earlier? As I said, I'm not going to school, I went to a temple where Iearned everything about magic I know by now... so I'm sort of "done with school" if you want to call it that. But I'm not one of the best healers in the world, so if this goes by skill, I'm rather a middle-class healer or... something.

27. How many friends do you have?
My father... the women from the temple... my partner and some people who sometimes accompany us... well... not many to be honest.

28. What are your thoughts on pie?
Pie? I love it, if it's filled with fruits!

30. Favorite drink?
Fresh, cold water.

31. What's your favorite place?
Since I left my hometown, I often thought about the temple and it was a good place but... nothing I would call my "favorite place". Since I'm traveling around eversince that day I don't have any places I spend lots of time at - except for the tent I sleep in...

32. Are you interested in anyone~?
Interested like... love-interest? Well, just like I said, I have my... partner.

33. That was a stupid question.
Yup, it was. Since I anwered it several times before...

34. Would you rather swim in a lake or the ocean?
I prefer lakes. I don't like to have dry salt on my skin when I get out of the ocean so clear, clean lake-water is better in my oppinion!

35. What's your type?
What do you mean..? I don't have a "type" like... "I only like people who look like this-and-that" or "I want to be in a relationship with someone who looks like this and behaves like that"...

36. Any fetishes?
Fe... whaaat..? I... I don't have anything to do with any unusual things and especially not when it comes to... sexual things... Why do you ask something like that? What am I supposed to answer here?

37. Seme or uke?
These are descriptions for the roles someone plays when having sex, right..?
Why do you think I would answer this..?
Questions about my relationship-status, favourite food or place are one thing but this is just too private!

38. Camping or indoors?
I'm always traveling and I like it since I first got on my way.

OC picked: Milabra
The Sceptre of Sun by Elythe

1. What is your name?
Milabra. But you can call me Milly for short.

2. Do you know why you were named that?
Nope. It's just my name. I don't know that it has any special meaning or something like that.

3. Single or taken?
Happily taken~

4. Have any abilities or powers?
Nothing special like magic or being able to fly... I think I'm pretty good at finding treasures but that's not an "ability or power" I guess.

5. Stop being a Mary Sue!
What do you want? What do you mean? Who is this Mary Sue and why should I be her?

6. What's your eye color?
It's an amber-golden-yellowish tone. Something very bright.

7. How about hair color?
A bright orange-red tone. When I'm in the sun for a long time it gets brighter and brighter and if I'm staying out of the sunlight it seems a little darker. Just like hair usually does.

8. Have you any family members?
Nope. No more. I had my parents but... I just know they never came back from searching for a big treasure. Probably a monster was guarding the treasure and killed them, probably they found the treasure and just traveled somewhere else where they don't have to look after the little kid I've been back when they disappeared. Who cares...

9. Oh? How about pets?
Nope. Would be too much of a burden for me. I don't want to have to feed a dog or cat or whatever daily... But sometimes I think a little dragon would be a good help when searching for treasures. I heard dragons can find treasures just as good as dowsers can find water.

10. That's cool, I guess. Now tell me something you don't like.
People who ask too many stupid questions probably..?

11. Do you have any activities/hobbies that you like to do?
My biggest hobby is what I do all day: Searching for treasures I can sell or maybe keep. I also like to craft clothing or weapons with the things I find, when I have the time.

12. Have you ever hurt anyone in any way before?
I tend to get in fights from time to time. That's the problem when being a woman who travels around. Some men just don't know what to say and when to shut up instead...

13. Ever… killed anyone before?
No, I didn't. Mostly because I never had to. At least I didn't kill any humans. If animals count, too, I'm a serial killer because I need to hunt to get something to eat.

14. What kind of animal are you?
I'm not an animal...

15. Name your worst habits.
Worst habits? Probably my worst habit is to forget time when searching for treasures. Once I went into an old ruin and stayed in there for three days. I don't even know why so much time passed without me noticing it. I had some meat and water with me so I didn't even get hungry and when I came back to the nearest city people thought I would've died or went on traveling without taking my other belongings with me from the inn.

16. Do you look up to anyone at all?
No, I don't. I'm planning to find the most interesting treasures and get rich by selling them so who could I look up to? Another treasure-hunter? I'd never look up to a rival.

17. Are you gay, straight, or bisexual?
I didn't expect such a direct question with all this random stuff here. But well, let's be honest here. I'm a woman and I do have a girlfriend, so I guess this makes me lesbian then?

18. Do you go to school?
Nope, I've got more important things to do~

19. Ever want to marry and have kids one day?
Not really. I guess children would need too much time to take care of, so I prefer to collect some more gems and gold and call these treasures my "babies" *smiles*

20. Do you have fangirls/fanboys?
Fangirls? Fanboys? Hopefully one day everybody will look up to me as the most famous treasure-hunter ever. But I guess it's still a long way~

21. What are you most afraid of?
I'm afraid of... loosing. Loosing something important. Even though I tend to forget time when I'm searching for treasures and I fear that someday I'll forget something important because I might spend too much time on this goal...

22. What do you usually wear?
Short clothes which are good to wear in the desert... but also a cloak to keep the heat away from me. Also I wear some self-made jewelry~

23. What's one food that tempts you?
I don't care much for food. I love everything that gives me power. Fruits, all sorts of Nuts and dried meat is great for long journeys.

24. Am I annoying you?
A little. Yes. But if you would be too annoying, I could just stop answering these questions, I guess~

25. Well, it's still not over!
Oh, really? Woooow, I'm soooo surprised... *yawn*

26. What class are you (low class, middle class, high class)?
Class? What kind of class do you mean?

27. How many friends do you have?
I don't have "friends", I have contacts. People I know and who have helpful information about places and treasures. And of course I do have my girlfriend~

28. What are your thoughts on pie?
Pie? It's tasty and I like to eat it sometimes when I get the chance.

30. Favorite drink?
Milk. Milk is healthy and gives a lot of power. But it's not always easy to carry milk on a long journey through the desert without it getting expired...

31. What's your favorite place?
I don't have one special favourite place but I love old ruins!

32. Are you interested in anyone~?
I'm not "interested" in anyone but my girlfriend~

33. That was a stupid question.

34. Would you rather swim in a lake or the ocean?
Lake. I don't like the ocean's salt when it gets dry on my skin...

35. What's your type?
My type? I don't understand this question, to be honest...

36. Any fetishes?
Uhm, no... none of your business, I think.

37. Seme or uke?
Ah, now we're getting to the weird and creepy questions. My type, fetishes and now this. I guess this is another little secret which you won't find out any time son.

38. Camping or indoors?
I'm always camping and I love it. But sometimes I prefer the inn over a tent.

Hey guys!
At first I wanted to thank all of you for the Birthday-Wishes! It was indeed the happiest birthday in my life, so far. Hopefully I'll be able to celebrate with some friends on a weekend where everybody has time for that.

Now I'm finally back home. I spend my birthday shopping with my best friend AnaisKalinin and after the shopping-tour and dinner with my mom I spend the rest of the day with my boyfriend Selmanos - And even with all these things going on, I managed to finish an artwork which is very important for me because it is for an important competition.

But I didn't start this journal to spam you with birthday-experiences and stuff I made during the last two days. I wanted to feature some pictures I got!

Look at these amazing pics, fave and comment them! Appreciate the awesomeness! :heart:

My deviantART Story

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 7, 2014, 8:38 AM
According to my profile, I'm a Deviant since Mar 20, 2010 so I'm here for over 4 years by now. This is a really long time in which lots of things happened.

It all goes back to my time at school, where after years and years with complicated, idiotic classmates I finally met someone with my interests who's just as crazy and creative as me. It was AnaisKalinin, who told me about deviantART someday. She said, that it's an awesome website for artists where people can post their pictures, get feedback and find other artists to exchange comments and critiques with. Back then I had no clue how much this website could mean to me someday.

The first pic I posted was my fanart of the Mad Hatter in the back then newest Disney Movie "Alice in Wonderland".
It was posted here  on April 24 2010:
The Mad Hatter by Elythe

At this point I didn't know anything about groups and how to bring my pictures to other people  to make them notice my works. I just drew and posted and when I didn't get a lot of feedback, I was a little disappointed, at first. The next bunch of pics were posted at the beginning of July 2010 and they all were Pokémon-Fanart. After months of trying and posting and never taking things serious I found my first bunch of groups and the first awesome people which still are great friends to me.
Luckily I knew some people from various german Harvest Moon-Forums which already had their accounts here. This way I had my first contacts here, which were ChelseaCherryblossom, BriniChan and oOLuccianaOo - Es ist toll, dass ihr immer da wart und seid ♥

In 2011 I started the 100 Themes Challenge and finished it during this one year. I worked with Bases and References a lot and drew tons of fanart. Thanks to this I got some watchers and feedback and also found a bunch of groups where I could post my pictures.
Here are some of my best results from this challenge:
:GIFT: Luna X Cinnamon 'Hold My Hand' by Elythe Most annoying girls ever by Elythe My Precious Treasure by Elythe

Also in 2011 I started coloring different linearts by one of my Idols and the best Line-Artist on dA: sureya. This way I learned a lot about coloring with pencils and tryed out various ideas of light and shading. This way I also created one of my most faved actual drawings: The bunny-girl on the right~
:COLLAB: Ninja Girl by Elythe :COLLAB: Renkitty by Elythe :COLLAB: Sweets by Elythe

In 2011 and 2012 deviantART was the website which consumed all of my time. The subject I studied back then was total horror, I had to live at a place with people of which I didn't like most and so I drew and commented on other peoples art in every free minute I had. I also gave up on this studies back then because it was no fun at all and if I would have kept studying this subject, I would have had to give up on drawing forever to have enough time for learning. deviantART was the place I could escape to and I got to know lots of awesome people.
I was extremely happy, when the amazing Aurorella asked me for an ArtTrade back then, when she still had her former account. To trade with an artist who creates such wonderful dreamy pictures made me incredibly happy.

Also I created my most successful "artwork" in 2012. It's a tutorial/reference/help-thing which came into existance only because of a funny idea. AnaisKalinin wanted to make a Hairstyle-Challenge and add hairstyles to Harvest Moon / Rune Factory-Sprites. She asked me if I would just create some random hairstyles so we could kinda work on this together and I drew 50 hairstyles.
With about 3,655 Faves and 425 Comments this is by far the most well known thing, I've ever created. Sometimes I get a little sad because all the pics on which I spend about 7-15 hours hardly ever get more than 50 Faves and this simple thingy is so popular that it hurts xD

Various Female Anime+Manga Hairstyles by Elythe

These were my starting years on dA and the hardest years of my life. After the middle of 2012 I started studying subjects, which I like and which give me enough time to keep working on my biggest hobby and dream: Drawing.

I met lots of awesome people over the last two years, especially three german Artists who draw Ecchi (and lots more) are people I just love to chat with and support with constructive comments, buying commissions, making gifts and stuff. MoroMonster, Fhran and YuukiTheHellgirl - Ich bin froh, dass ich euch kenne ♥

Now at the end of this journal I also wanted to add some awesome pictures I got over my long time here. I collected a big bunch of pictures of my OCs so far but since I can't post them all, I'll just post some great examples of what I got as Trades, Gifts and Commissions:

Kari by Pizzaprinz  <da:thumb id="469753068"/> <da:thumb id="328987875"/>  ...+ Wild Couture +... by ChelseaCherryblossom COM: Caridad by nanako87

I would love to add information about every single year or month I spend here but this would make this journal thirty kilometres to scroll, so I'll leave it this way.

News, News, News (and tagged)

Journal Entry: Mon May 12, 2014, 3:51 AM
Hey guys!
Seems like it's about time for a new journal!

As some of you know, all these works for university kinda kill my free-time but thanks to the fact that I'm working mostly traditional I can always take some stuff with me and work on it during the day~


1) Maybe I'm gonna spam you with Naruto-stuff soon. After redrawing two of my old OCs I started thinking about them and I realized that I don't have enough background-information about lots of them and my old fanfiction is still weird and some of the names and storyparts don't even fit in the Canon-Universe. So I'm gonna rewrite some of the information, redraw all of the characters, rename some of them (or at least I'll ad some last names because for now most of them only have a simple first name like Yuki and Kasumi) and post some RefSheets. I don't wanna go on the nerves on anybody who's not into the fandom because I'm not in either. I just want to edit some mistakes I made years ago~
So be prepared, this will happen!

2) I will have to rearrange some parts of my gallery soon. As some of you know I'm a damn OC-addict and I can't stop thinking of new ones or buy adoptables so I'll have to add some folders for some of my new characters and probably reorder the old ones.
Don't worry, I won't delete old pics or OCs or delete complete folders, I just want to add some new ones and maybe reorganize older ones. Nothing will be gone forever~

3) I'm probably gonna make a little sale when I find time for it. This means I will lower my commission-prices for a limited time - probably just the fullbody ones. This way I can practice more fullbody-artworks, draw some pics for you and get some money for it. There will be some games I want to buy this summer and I could need some money for it, so this way we can all profit from it xD

Here, have some great artworks of my OCs drawn by others:
I just wanted to feature some great gifts & Commissions and my newest OC~

Glowcow Adopt by Porcelain-Nightmares Apadine _Version Dragoon_ by Dragoon-Rekka <da:thumb id="441077618"/>
Maiga by BriniChan <da:thumb id="447260780"/>  COM: Caridad by nanako87

I got tagged by Saoto to make one of these 10 facts & 10 question-thingys~

1. You must post these rules
2. Each person has to share ten facts about themselves.
3. Answer the ten questions from the person who tagged you and make up ten questions for the ten people you tag.
4. Choose ten people and include them in your journal.
5. Go to their page and inform that they have been tagged by you. (it tells them you tagged them if you use icons)
6. Not like "You are tagged if you read this".
7. You have to legitimately tag ten people. 
8. No tag backs.
9. You can not say that you do not do tags.
10. You MUST make a journal

Ten facts:
1) I know I have way too many OCs but I can't stop creating and buying new ones~
2) I'm addicted to decotapes/washitapes because they're a great way to decorate drawings!
3) I haven't played a new videogame for months now. That's somehow weird because there was a time where I bought at least one new game every month xD
4) As much as I hate learning latin, somehow I think it's really fun to translate old texts.
5) Even if my online-team in Pokémon X is kinda strong, I have no damn clue about good movesets. I get most of the information for the movesets of my Pokémon from the internet and just copy whatever seems to be good and useful.
6) There was a time where I slept until noon when I had a free day. Lately I rather stand up at 7 or 8 to get more stuff done during the day.
7) When I'm at work I always steal some paper from the printer and sketch stuff while I should do other things...
8) When I was at school, I hated doing oral presentations. Since I'm at university, I just love doing them because it's not as much work as it would be to write a long text over 5 pages...
9) I always take my 3DS with me, even if I know that I won't meet anybody because I'm just going to the post-office in my small town or something^^
10) Sometimes I love sketching but everything else is "too much work" - then there are days where I'm glad when I can just line some sketches I've left - and finally there are these coloring-times when I just want to color stuff that's already lined. If everything's good it works this exact way but sometimes I want to line my sketches and there are no sketches left xD

Questions by the person who tagged me:

1. If you'd live in a Dystopian world, what kind of person would you be? A rebel, maybe - or someone who just goes with the flow and sees the life in this society as the best way to live?
Depends on how the future looks. If it's a dead apocalyptic zombie-world I would just try to survive and travel with the ones of my friends who survived and spend all my life to find a safe place for us. But if it's some kind of "the politicians control everybody and you're forced to be whatever they want you to be"-world I would try to find a way out, so I think I would be a rebel because I can't just do something when I'm forced to do it. I want to decide what I do with my life and if people would try to control and force me to do something else or maybe do the worst job ever, then... no, thank you, I've done quite enough stupid jobs and I'm not studying so I can spend my whole life cleaning toilets and wearing whatever is the stuff I have to wear, listening to whatever music is allowed and live in whatever place I have to.

2. Do you have a good memory?

I have a good memory concerning names, sayings, words and stuff from games - I probably could tell a lot of fantasy-names I heard during the last days or explain what they came from or what someone said in a movie or video but... I have the worst memory ever when it comes to faces xD

3. What would you rather read if you were forced to choose one: A book about spiders and cobwebs that is about 2000 pages long - or Justin Bieber's biography?
I love spiders! They're damn interesting creatures and I can't get enough of taking photos and looking at their webs when there are raindrops in them so I would even read a book about them in my free time without being forced *-* I guess that's everything that needs to be said xD

4. Which online platform do you like most, and why? (Like DeviantArt, Tumblr, Twitter, Youtube...)
deviantART is my second home! I've met so many great people here! I also use Tumblr and Twitter actively but I could live without them. I love YouTube because of the amazing videos and I like watching and commenting stuff there but since I don't produce any content for this platform and I don't have lots of active people there which I think of as close friends I'll stay with my first answer: deviantART! Here I can get everything I need. I can post my stuff, get feedback, communicate and trade with other artists, spend hours of time on just browsing and commenting other peoples artworks... Really, if there was nothing in the internet but deviantART, I would still spend half of my life online xD

5. Which was the first video game you've played?
I guess it was a "The Lion King"-Game for the old Game Boy Pocket I got for christmas... Later there came Pokémon Red... and when my parents bought an N64 I started playing their games (The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time / Super Mario 64 / Banjo & Kazooie / Rayman 2) so they're all my first games because somehow this all is so long ago... I forgot which one was first and which one I really played or just looked at etc.

6. What scares you more: thunder or lightning? (If at all)
The combination. If there's just the thunder, I know it must be far away because I don't see any lightnings. If there's just a lightning, I know the storm isn't near because there's no thunder. But I get scared by the combination because I live so far outside from town that lignings love to hit our house and destroy our W-Lan xD

7. Have you ever lied to someone about yourself to impress them?
Back in school, yes. I told some kids that I bought cigarettes and that I smoke every day because they did at the age of 12 and I wanted to be cool like them. But it was only stuff like that and nothing serious, I guess xD

8. If you could travel back in time and change one thing in your life, what would it be?
I would change the fact that I studied something law-related for one year. If I could travel back I wouldn't even write the application for this and spend more time on learning for the finals at school so I don't get a damned 2,2 final grade but the 1,9 I could have reached if I wouldn't have been that lazy because I though "Well, I have a job I'm gonna do. I don't need good grades, I don't need to study!" *headdesk*

9. And if you could travel back in time even further than your own life time, what event in history would you change?
Nothing! I would fear that everything would be destroyed and when I come back my life is gone because whatever happened influenced everything, my parents probably never met and I'm not even born! This would be horrible - I would stop existing or have nowhere to go... Oh god Q__Q
