Will take a while so patience is needed for it to flow nicely.

Hello! And welcome to my page. I hope you like what I draw and enjoy it as well. Im a nerdy animal lover from England who loves to draw, voice act, sing [badly x'D] and interact with animals/wildlife. Disney and animation is my life, a different world where anything you can imagine comes alive in reality.
I could say im a varied artist, not an expert but I hope to achieve a better style in the next few years. Disney based, mystic or anything animal related is my preference, however discreet anthro and human occasionally pops up here and there. Traditional artwork and maybe random photos could be added at some point.

I am always open to a chat about anything you may have on your mind, just don't hesitate to ask me :hug::heart:

Just to add, my username was inspired by two beloved pets, Rest In Peace my darling Midnight and precious Merlyn. Miss you :heart:

1. Post these rules.


2. Post 8 facts about your character.

3. Tag 8 other people; post their avatars and write their OC's names next to them.

4. NO TAG BACKS!

Ok, I'm going to give a few facts about Xana as requested however, I am not going to reveal all her secrets ;) haha

Xana... by MerlynsMidnight

1. She has 3 half siblings, one of them being Simba. 

2. Xana resembles her mother, Sarabi more than her father, Scar. Only her reddish brown fur, eye colour and slightly pointed body shape are inherited but modified with other genetics inherited from both bloodlines. [ancestors]

3. Xana will earn a lasting scar/wound later on in life with a purposeful meaning. You will discover this in her later years. [not for a long while yet]

4. During her early teens she was kept isolated by Scar's orders to avoid her becoming "soft hearted and weak" and forced her to train instead of hunting or socializing. I did this to strengthen her character and allow her to show no matter how much her spirit was broken it did not alter who she was within.

5. Relationships towards Xana will remain a secret but I will say that they will teach her about the life she was limited to have in the beginning.

6. Xana dies protecting someone later on in her life. When, who and why will be revealed in the comic. :plotting:

7. Xana was originally designed to be the daughter of Scar and Sarafina, but her looks just did not reflect the design properly so I tried Sarabi and it suited perfectly. 

8. Xana is meant to be gifted, as it has been shown she had a visit from her late grandfather Ahadi. In her case it is more of a de javu occurrence but you will see why I gave her a gift some point soon.


They are the most basic facts I can give, but hopefully you will see why I like her so much :heart:

I tag: :iconhydracarina: Safura    :iconeyesinthedark666: Tora   :iconestories: Alice    :iconthelionsroarr: Roho   :iconzoketi: Zoketi  :iconisharaheart: Pumpkin   

I can't think of anymore currently hahaaa

Hi! I saw your comment on that thief/troll's account and just wanted to say, you're very admirable for being calm and collected about your comment. :) Hope you have a nice day.

I have dealt with enough trolls for a lifetime and being aggressive is never the answer, they will just feed off of it for the fact they are getting attention, even if it is the wrong sort. It is up to her to stop and take it seriously, remind her of the consequences and move on. If she gets banned, she gets banned.
All I can hope for is she is young and does not understand what she is doing is wrong and hopefully learn from her actions, if not then we all know what her fate will be. 

Thank you for the kind words, I am only saying what is fact about her actions. Yes, the original artists have a right to be upset as I would be if she took any of mine but we cannot lower ourselves to a trolls/thiefs level. Being calm, collective and honest is better than getting angry and stressed.

I hope you have a nice day as well :)
