Mortal Gods Extract
It was dark now; the moon was a glittering silver coin tossed up high into a sky encrusted with gemstones. In a tiny forgery, a boy and girl slept soundly, unaware of the things that they had set in motion. Their guardian was hammering metals late into the night, too troubled to sleep, for he could feel something stirring. But he didn’t know what. And somewhere over the Woodwroth Ridges, past gaping ravines and waterfalls that shouted at rivers and boulders, past the towns, villages, cities and camps of people, their little lights and fires glittering and shimmering, something dark coiled, stirred and shivered with glee in its deep slumber in a long-abandoned temple. The ground cracked and crumbled slightly as it turned over in its long death-like trance, mumbling dark, unspeakable words that even the Ancients of Yaruvallah never dared to speak. And simultaneously, a vicious shudder crept over the land as it searched for Destiny, who was lurking in a tiny market town, scattering

Tears of the Snowdrop
A simple story for how this picture came about, instead of my usual in-depth explanations xD. So, I was up at the cafe where I do my volunteering and my first job of the day is to put the signs out, which is when I spotted a lovely clump of snowdrops which had a dusting of dew on them from the rain last night (hence the name Tears of the Snowdrop). Needless to say that it was a great opportunity. In short, I'm very happy with the result and this is one of favourite photographs of the year so far. I hope you enjoy. 
The Watchful Robin
Yo, people, it's Earwig here with more photographs and weird names to boot! As promised, here is another picture that I've been meaning to upload. This one is from late February (this year) and was taken in The Botanical Gardens of Edinburgh, a lovely spot to visit at any time of the year. However, Spring and Summer would probably be the best times. Regardless, I was lucky enough to get up close with a robin - a lovely little bird well-known for it's iconic red-breast. This was taken on a phone, which really shows how close I managed to get. I'm pretty proud of this picture and I'm especially pleased that the robin allowed me this rare opportunity. 

That said, thanks once again for your patience, and I hope you enjoy. 
OC: Willow Lazuli
Phew whee, man it's been a while! Sorry about that, by the way. Stuff's just been going on and truth be told I need to get back into the drawing side of things. I still have a bunch of photographs to upload, however! Anyways, without further ado, this is Willow. She's a character in my currently-in-progress book series, Mortal Gods, and is thirteen-years old. In this picture, however, she's either five or seven. (I originally planned to feature her in her own mini-story, The Woodland Well, for an art project, and I may yet do it - she'll be about that age in that story).  In case anyone's wondering why it's done so simply, I've recently been setting myself a challenge to draw more characters in a set time - she took me about fifteen minutes. Challenge yourselves and have fun!

Name: Willow Lazuli. 
Age: In The Woodland Well: Five-to-seven. In Mortal Gods: Thirteen. 
Gender: (In case anyone fails to notice xD) Female. 

Basic Information: Willow is girl from a clan background - the clans of Yaruvallah are people who live solely by the laws of nature, living in tents, moving around in accordance to the seasons. They are typically peaceful healers and hunters with a unique brand of nature craft; but have nearly been hunted to extinction by other people. Her clan people share a lot of similarities with the Hunter Gatherer clans from hundreds of years ago and the more recent Native Americans and how they were mistreated when the the newcomers arrived. In Mortal Gods she is one of six main characters you are introduced to. 

I'm not going to say anything more than that for the moment because SPOILERS! She is going to be in my book, after all. That said, I hope you've enjoyed! I aim to post my photographs soon, so keep an eye out. Thanks for being patient with me, <3

Willow Lazuli is a copyrighted character that I own. She is NOT open for use by others be it in book or art. Fan-ARTS (as in art only, no appearance in any kind of fan book or something) are permitted but you are to ask me first. It isn't hard to send me a note. I will also want full-credit for said fan-art - make no mistake, I SHALL find out if anyone tries to bunk off my designs. 
Deviant ID, 2019
The time has come again for a new profile picture, which is scary because it feels like only yesterday that I had my 2018 one taken! (Which is also ironic because at the time of uploading this, THIS photograph was taken xD). Anyways I hope you like it because I think it's a pretty good photo! Have fun in the snow people!
The Snow Dog
As many of us are probably aware, Britain is enjoying some snow for the first time in forever! At least me and my friend Kyle were, anyway. This photograph was taken yesterday and features Kyle's lovely purebred Irish Border-collie, Grace! This is the third time Grace has featured in my gallery - she seems to be a rather photogenic dog. Anyways, that said I hope you're all doing well and that you enjoy this picture and the snow!
Family Stuff:
Yo guys, thought I'd post this quick journal update and whatnot. Basically, there's been a ton of stuff going on recently. I've been seeing grandparents who live a few hours away from me a lot, which is always good, but it has meant postponing a lot of art. Hope you can all understand that, which I'm sure you do. But I'm delighted to report that I have a ton of good photos to upload! 

However, not everything is good. One of my grandparents, who lives very close to me (aka not the ones who live faraway) has just suffered a fit due to his stroke a few years ago. It was completely unexpected and happened on this Sunday, before his birthday. So far, its going ok, but I'm just trying to defuse any family tension at the moment.

Also, there is another extremely private matter which is causing some distress, but I'm not going into any details as it is incredibly personal. But I'm going to make it clear there is a lot of stuff on my mind currently.

Unfortunately, I have been suffering from artist's block a lot. Often enough, I often get a little depressed - I don't have too much self-confidence with my work. This is not because I have no self-pride, but I often see other people's beautiful work at college - and I try to up my game a lot, but my brain sometimes convinces itself that I'm not - well - not good enough sometimes.

However, I'm really enjoying a new art style that I've gotten into and I'm beginning to feel a bit better about my stuff. Sorry to have to mention all this but I often get these feelings and this is one of the nastier versions of these thoughts. But, as you will soon see, I have got some stuff drawn up. Also, expect a new art style until I develop my Computer Art Skills (still an on-going project).

College Stuff:
So far, I'm really enjoying my new college. There's lots of lovely people and it keeps you on your toes. My college work comes with a HUGE pile of things to do which involves practically ALL of my spare time getting eaten up. I don't get in from college till around 5:30 or 6PM, British Time - which doesn't leave me with much time to design new, personal things when I've got to get food and do any looming college projects. 

A Final Word: Firstly, I'd like to point out that by no means in any way that I'm not quitting DA or anything like that. What I would like to draw attention to is that I don't have as much free time as I used to. Family matters have been getting quite climactic recently and quite worrying sometimes; college is getting busier and busier and an awful lot of my time, in college or out, is dedicated to not losing sleep over worrying about how many sketchbook pages are complete. As for my art problem - that is temporary and is already leaving me for the moment.

That being said, I hope you're all keeping well and you can expect more regular uploads in either the next few days or next week, all depends on how college goes this week. Love all of you guys, and will see you all soon.


Mr-Earwig's Profile Picture
Artist | Student | Digital Art
United Kingdom
18 years old, roughly six-foot at full body length (not too bad, I suppose). Wacky hair - its all the place - curling, wavy, straight and whole host of colours (mainly rich brown, but I have flashes of blonde and ginger lurking in the brown depths) simultaneously! I won't say too much about the fact - personal information and I'm not quite ready to give a full-on view of my body. Anyways, the face is decent - a few angles, barely, freckles and big blue eyes and typically a grin.

Since I consider myself a more "humble" type of person, I won't say I'm a good artist - Hell, I'm probably one of the worst - but I'm still learning; and I'm going to an art college, soon, around the time of me writing this. I am good at writing, I've currently got a book in the works along with many more book ideas brewing in my head; I would also consider myself a decent photographer. Anyways, I know my drawings are probably terrible and not the best at all, but I hope you enjoy your time on here. Also, check out my group YouTube Channel, The BEK Team (we're very small, but we provide decent gaming content - I hope):…

My personal goals: Learn to do art/digital art and photography professionally. Write my books; and learn animation. I also plan to become a better YouTuber in order to help my small YouTube group get bigger and better!

Anyways, have good days, enjoy life and food and drawing and gaming (there was a lot of "ands" there ... oh well) !

Hey, thanks for faving  Skyrim: Savages by Magnus-Strindboem  !  It's a rare first choice out of the gallery, may I ask how you came to add it?
Mr-Earwig Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2018  Student Digital Artist
I don't really know, it just appeared on the main page for me. My Skyrim hype has kinda been exploding lately. Elder Scrolls 6 is around the corner, the original makes of Fallout/Fallout: New Vegas (Obsidian Entertainment) have just announced a new game, The Outer Worlds, and well Bethesda have done the most recent Fallout games. Anyways, I liked it and it looked cool. 
Magnus-Strindboem Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I just wondered, I keep a small numbers of Skyrim scenes on my profile, bit for nostalgic reasons, and never put them into any groups, so they are rarely noticed... But I'm happy you like it.
