So what is this story about? Keep reading below :D

"I am no sinner. I am no witch. I am nothing."

Rumors abound about Berenice's ancestors, though she wishes only for a peaceful life. That would be possible, if it weren't for these black dogs that haunt her. Only she can see them. Is she losing her mind?

This stalking, though, is only the first of her problems. Her world turns upside down with the return of Iszak, the boy who abandoned her six years ago to "go back to his water kingdom."
He's not the only unexpected visitor —there's also Beatrix, a traveller with a suspicious interest in the local folklore and in Berenice's private life.

Who can she trust? Are Iszak's intentions honest, or is his visit somehow related to the book that Berenice's family has been guarding for generations,
supposedly full of spells long-lost to the merpeople? In the middle of this chaos, Berenice knows that retaking control of her life will come at a high cost
—a price that shall be paid in blood.

Below are the main characters as I imagine them; Berenice, Beatrix, and Iszak the selkie.

Berenice by LiberLibelulaThe Visit of the Selkie - Beatrix by LiberLibelulaIszak the Selkie by LiberLibelula



The Visit of the Selkie tells the story of 19yo Berenice, a lonely girl who lives in a tower by the sea. She has an angry cat, a shotgun, and lots of repressed feelings. No friends. No family. As you might guess, her life sucks and she's an anxious mess. Nothing could have prepared her for what's to come: a rekindled passion, unexpected allies and foes, and fear, so much fear. Sure, love may overcome any obstacle, but she might as well end up dead... or worse.

Also, selkies! Witchcraft! Angst and paranoia! Romantic landscapes and storms! It's the perfect read for a rainy day. You can grab a cup of hot chocolate and lose yourself within its pages. If you love fairytales, mythology, period dramas and intimate stories, you will very much enjoy The Visit of the Selkie.

I even made playlists for this story long ago. You can listen to them on 8tracks: REMEMBER ME and BERENICE.

Or maybe you don't feel like reading about magical drama, and you'd prefer a bodice-ripping romance full of hilarius smut? Well then, I have good news for you, because my other novel 'THE LADY AND THE BANDIT' is also translated to English, ready to fulfill your dirtiest cravings of historical passion set in XIXth-century Spain! Available both in Kindle and Paperback too ^^

Hello my lovely people! I know some of you are waiting to have your commissions done, but as I mentioned before one way or another, from this 9th to the 16th of July I'll be travelling to the Celsius Festival of Avilés in Spain and won't be able to work. Don't worry; as soon as I'm back home and recovered from the trip, I'll retake your commissions and have them done asap. You know I'm fast ;)

I tag you, current customers, so you don't miss this. I'll be sending you sketches before you can even notice my absence!
:iconspidertee: :iconravenkanzaki: :iconyukiemaru110: :icondrawingpleb:

I hope you all have a great July. As for myself, I'll be presenting my novel "La Visita del Selkie" at this big literary festival, so please, wish me luck!

Kisses,
Libertad

Hi lovelies! They told me that, in order to gain visibility and get my novels known, I should have a blog. But, however shy I might be, a Youtube channel seemed the best option, and in exchange, I'll offer you silly faces, random intros and conversations about something we all probably love: BOOKS! (and occasional Speedpaint videos, of course)

Audio is in Spanish, but English subtitles are available. Just remember to turn yours on! Let's find cool books together :D
Also, I have an Instagram account now, so if you're there as well, let's keep in touch!

Yesterday he was at work, the car he was driving was old and something failed. It fell off a cliff and, though the other 3 coworkers will heal, he died suddenly. At least I have that: he didn’t suffer. He didn’t have time to be scared, or hurt. We’ll miss him a lot. He was only 67.

If you have pendant businesses with me, I’ll try to go back to commissions asap, but please give me some time. It hurts too much.

EDIT: 29th of June, 2017

Hi, people. It’s been a week, and thank God my family is better. We’re still mourning and missing my dad terribly. When I hear the doorbell ring, I still somehow think it’s him, by reflex, and stand up to go open for my dad, just before realizing that it’s not him, nor will ever be again.

I miss the way he joked, and sang terrible songs on Sunday as he urged my mom to get pretty and go out together, and the way he stole pieces of sausage and ham from the fridge when he thought no one noticed, and how he’d scratch his back on the wall corners like a bear.

He’d been working like a mule since 7 years old, and had impeccable work ethics. He paid his workers religiously, gave them huge Christmas baskets and always reserved the most dangerous tasks to himself, so if anything bad happened, it happened to him. He went to school only for 20 days, and still he managed to build his own company from scratch and give a job to countless people. He’d been through so much, and still he was so devoid of malice, like a child. He was terrified of snakes, but when one crossed his way on the road, he’d get off his car and move it away with a stick so it didn’t die just like that, under his wheels.

He could hardly read a book and lacked much culture, yet he absolutely loved having a daughter who painted strange things and wrote silly romance novels, which many parents don’t. At least one thousand people passed by his coffin that day, and there were so many flower crowns that I could barely see it. He wasn’t perfect, but he was loved, and respected, and a good person, and had balls of steel.

It won’t be easy to go without him.

But we’re smiling and kinda… joking again, and going out for groceries, and everything’s slowly getting sorted into place. We’re still sad and confused, and the void of him is everywhere we look, but… There’s nothing else to do. I wanted to thank you all for your words and comments, and your lit candles and prayers; your dedication and support was moving, and it helped a lot with my mourning. I didn’t expect so much love from people across the internet.

Thank you all so, so much for your kindness. Really.

I’m back to commissions again, so when I finish a couple, you may expect a silly, horrible Star Wars romance cover soon, as a token of my gratitude. I don’t know how else to appreciate.

So do you want some designs for your OC or some culture of your novel/story, explore a thematic or simply order some pretty outfit designs? Maybe some design for your cosplay? I can do it! Male, female, alien, anthro... whatever, as long as they need some clothes! ^^


Bullet; OrangePRICES
Note that these are orientative numbers. A simple pajama would cost way less than complex armor or robes, so don't be afraid to ask me, I'm flexible ^^
There's no limit of outfits per commission and there can be different models or OCs for free up to 2. A higher number would increase the price a bit.

(OPTIONAL) sketches sheet --- 30€
In case you want to have more options to pick from, or are unsure of what you're looking for, you have the option of the Sketch Sheet. Here, I fill a notebook page with small sketches of designs for you to see and choose. It comprehends about 20-25 sketches whose purpose is to see silhouettes, flow and the basic aesthetics. This page needs investigation and a lot of brainstorming, so it has the basic price of 30€.
However, if you're looking for an aesthetic I've sketched before, you'll have access to other sheets I've done previously. Just ask!

Here you can see some sheets. Some of the sketches are finished in the following pictures, as in Zori (the green-haired girl):
WardrobeSketches by LiberLibelula
The mannequin is your OC --- free (If it's winged, furry or has a complex design, I may charge a little.)
No color --- + from 10-25€ per piece
Colored --- + from 20-55€ per piece


Here you can see some examples and varying grades of complexity.

So this is how it works. After I receive the payment, I start your commission. I'll stay in contact through the whole process, showing you the sketches, lineart and color, so you can tell me if I have to make changes. And when it's finished, I upload it to my galleries and Social Media ^^

Bullet; OrangeHOW TO ORDER?
Bullet; PurpleI use Paypal and, if you're Spanish, also bank transference.
Bullet; PurpleSend me a note and tell me what's your petition. If you can, give me some image references, I´d appreciate it. Explain to me what do you want as exactly as possible. The character's personality is relevant, so don't be afraid to tell me about them! :D
Bullet; Purple After agreeing and accepting the order, send the payment to my PayPal gmail, and I will start doing your comission right away. If the work is complex, I'll send you updates until I finish it, that way you can point me any fixes needed.

Bullet; OrangeThese commissions are only for your personal use. If you're interested in a work for commercial purposes, please let me know in your note, or contact me at: LiberLibelula@hotmail.com

I'm very excited to begin! And you? :iconhurrdurrplz:

Hi people! Today I realized that, after almost 5 years in DA, you've surpassed the number of 2000 great persons following this account.

Thank you, thank you so much. I've shared with you everything I could paint, and you've helped me with every single comment, fav and watch. You've given me a lot in return for the little I could give you, and a great part of what I learned, I got it from this wonderful site and the people that also share their advices and their art. Thank you for following me, because you make me know that somebody out there is waiting for my next picture, and maybe my work is helping to improve other people's lives.

When I have a bad day, or I'm afraid that I'm not good enough, or I simply cry because sometimes the world is so big and scary, you're there, even if you never speak. You helped me to become a part of a web where anybody can reach me and I can know wonderful people who put me out of my comfort zone for the best. Seriously, I don't know what would I've done without DeviantArt and you.

Sorry for my poor english and my lack of skill when it comes to give thanks in an eloquent way, but I really mean it from the bottom of my heart. Thank you so much.

I hope you all have a marvelous day and, like Neil Gaiman said: Make. Good. Art. :iconhurrdurrplz:

:bulletorange:You can also contact me at: LiberLibelula@hotmail.com



:bulletorange:HOW TO ORDER?:bulletorange:

:bulletpurple:Send me a note (or contact me via email) and tell me what's your order. If you can, give me some image references. Tell me about the character's personality and story!

:bulletpurple: I'm flexible with prices, themes and poses. If you can't afford something, we'll find a more economical way by changing the background or the coloring technique, so don't worry and ask for anything you need.

:bulletpurple: After agreeing and accepting the order, send me the payment to my PayPal gmail, and I will start doing your comission. I'll show you the uncolored sketch, so you can point any mistakes or needed changes. When everything's allright, I'll go on and send you updates, so you know I haven't been abducted by aliens, until I finish it. Just be sure of all the big fixes needed before I start the hard work and color; otherwise I'll have to charge you some extra.

:bulletorange: No big waiting! No angst! I'm fast! (Or so it's said) I´ll try to finish your commission as soon as possible. The time needed depends a lot on how complex is the picture and how busy I am at that moment, but I don't need more than a month to finish a big commission.

:bulletorange: I will post the final work in mi DA Gallery and in my Social Media. You can ask to remain anonymous, no problem with that.
