Prismacolor colored pencil Drawing of my Blood Elf Paladin, Korinth, from World of Warcraft in Judgement armor.
Dark Lady Watch Over You
This Lady Sylvanas piece was originally done as a part of a set of World of Warcraft tattoo flash I was working on. Unfortunately, due to complications with the nerves in my arms this was the only one of the set I was able to complete and it took me about a year. Done in Prismacolor Colored Pencils.
I am alive. Life got a little carried away with me for a while and the nerve problems with my arm that prevent me from doing a lot of art still persist. I do, however, intend to try to get through all of the hundreds of deviation stacks I haven't looked at in two years and hopefully upload the one or two things I have actually been able to do in the past two years. :p

I started wanting to draw back when I was maybe 4 or so... you see, my sister had just gotten these Lady Lovely Locks paper dolls. I really wanted to play with them, but was reassured that I was too young. So I decided to try to make my own.

That is when I discovered that I absolutely could not draw. XD Hand/eye coordination and muscle/finger strength did not exist. But from that day on I decided I would figure out how to draw.... and I've been drawing ever since.

I prefer to draw fantasy and anthro, but I guess I can draw realistic stuff too sometimes. The thing that frustrates me the most is that I'm pretty sure I have reached a plateau of my abilities. I keep drawing, but I don't seem to improve. Personally, I blame the period of my life I decided I needed to draw everything "anime" style.... should have stuck with my own style. I am trying to work through this, though. :p

Anyway, somewhere along the lines a friend of mine and I created some critters called Myotes. I really like to write about them and draw them. I decided they needed their own DA, so I created one for them only.
My Myote DA: :iconmyotes:

My other passions include dolls (mostly Asian Ball Jointed Dolls, but I don't discriminate too much. XD ), fashion, dancing, and reptiles (mainly boa constrictors)... oh... and I like pirates. XD

Also... go check out my sister's art: :icongnewi: She's amazing!

Current Residence: At Home
Favourite genre of music: Techno, Heavy Metal/Vis Kei, many styles...
Operating System: Windows XP
MP3 player of choice: WinAmp
Shell of choice: Conch
Favourite cartoon character: Kim Possible
Personal Quote: Neko o tabenaide kudasai!!
It's been a long time. I haven't really been a presence here on DA for quite some time. :p I feel like I need to stop neglecting DA, but really, I have been super busy. The main reason for my current absence is that as of late last summer/early fall I had the wonderful opportunity to become a tattoo apprentice! So finally, a life-long dream is in the process of being achieved. I have been dedicating all my free time to the art of tattoo, so I have not been an online presence nearly as much. I hope to get a bit caught up on DA and to post some tattoo work very soon. :)
