X-Ray Fox
And my drawing for today! Im going to be doing a series of animals like this, and ill just call them "X-Ray Animals". Each one will have a random shape across it showing some part of their skeleton. 

His legs are kinda wonky, but its been a while since ive drawn animals digitally. Otherwise I really like this guy! 

Ideas for other animals? :)

Coming for 2018
My first drawing for this year! 2017 was a shitty year for me. It was an eye opener in many ways, and I am definitely going to come for everything everyone said I couldnt have, or said I would never be able to achieve without the help of someone else. Im going to prove to myself I am worth it. I am going to accomplish so much this year if it kills me. I have made goals for myself and I will accomplish them come Hell or High Water! Lmao. 

And now that Ive got a handle on my depression and my anxiety and coping much better than how I was, I look forward to drawing a lot more often, and sharing here like I used to. 

To all who still view my deviations, thank you. <3 

My persona, NightTracker, busting through her old life and into a brand new exciting adventure! Bring on 2018!

A special gift for a dear friend of mine of her little dog, Callie! I wanted to do another style collage and had a lot of fun with this one. Friend absolutely loved it, made me so happy! 

Styles are -
Ink, zentangle (not too great at these things lol), rainbow
Lisafrank, realism, chibi
Sketch, sepia, and my style of cartooning.

A special pet portrait commission! This kitty has cancer and doesnt have long, knowing what this feels like I wanted to use several of the photos the commissioner sent as a part of the commission, but didnt know how, then one day it just kinda hit me to do something like this. A different style for each photo! A nice 9x12 collage. The commissioner loved it, so I felt very accomplished and satisfied. <3 

Im not too great at mimicking styles, so it was a learning experience! 

Left to right -
Lisafrank, Realism
Realistic sketch, my style of cartooning
Another realistic portrait, then my hand at a graffiti rainbow portrait!

Not too great at it, but im sure with practice ill get better. ^_^

5x7 pet portrait commission. This time of a beautiful recently passed goldendoodle, Heidi. 

This one didnt scan the greatest, but for the most part, out of the three small portraits this one is probably my favorite.

NightTracker Gift by Alikrea

Ill post another big batch this coming weekend, more than likely. :) I enjoy sticking a bunch of them onto one canvas then posting them so I dont litter my gallery with dozens of portraits. Youll notice that a lot of them are quite messy, as in pieces erased here and there, thats due to my screen at home being stupid and I didnt realize my sketch pages werent as white as my canvas when I scanned them in. I do sometimes many doodles on one page, and when I separate them via photoshop to give each portrait some space, I manually erase the pieces of the drawing close to it. If that makes any sense at all. =p Will prolly fix those and re-upload them soon, as seeing how messy they are on my work screen is irritating. =p Id like my gallery to at least try and look nice. XD 

In other news, nothing much. Not liking the cold weather, and just keeping myself in a habit of drawing something every day! And soon to come, humans! Yes! Im so proud of myself lol. Ill be uploading well, kinda semi character sheets (what will become their character sheets) of my human characters from Nexus. The four soldiers, the ninja, the samurai, the two scientists and possibly the pit fighter, not sure on him yet. I still have no idea what I want him to look like. 

Yaaaay. Back to work!

I am a professional artist living in Kentucky. Im employed with Hultman Graphics as a graphic designer, making anything from the random signs/ads you see around the cities, to T-shirt designs. I do commission work outside of my graphic designing.

If anyone is interested in a commission, please contact me via DA Note.

I sometimes sell the artwork I create if I feel willing to let go of something. If anything within my gallery catches your eye, let me know and ill give you a quote.

Im working on my own personal graphic novel/web comic of which id like to publish someday, as well as my own little series of children's books.

I am sometimes slow to reply here due to projects, work load and general life business, however, I try to check once a week, should anyone have any questions. :)


I'm an optimist and (sometimes) a realist. I like to try and keep a level head on level ground. Though sometimes my optimism turns into denial. =p

I'm a hobbyist dog trainer and my current rough collie and I work together as a therapy team. We travel to nursing homes, hospitals, schools and libraries making peoples days much brighter. Cardinal performs her tricks for the waiting children and seniors with joy and loves being loved on by whomever she meets. She carries herself with pride and seems to glow when around people and I'm very proud of her.

You will see many photos of her in my gallery. I cant help that, shes a wonderful photography model. :)

I may seem unapproachable but if you want to IM me or email/note me and strike up (or renew!) a conversation, feel free! :)

Have a wonderful day. <3

Current Residence: Paducah - Kentucky
Favorite genre of music: Everything. :3
Favorite style of art: Traditional, though Im leaning toward digital (Since I need digital skills for illustration work)
Operating System: Windows 7
Personal Quote: Be positive, it could turn out great!

I know a lot of people on DA no longer want thanked for watching another’s account, but I believe that doing such is a way of someone saying they look forward to pieces you have yet to create; and that is such an inspiration. Each watch tells me someone out there encourages me to keep working on art, even when it becomes difficult. So I think it is worth the time to take a few minutes to express my heartfelt <thank you</b> for liking and supporting my work. Many thanks for the +Watch. 💜

Haill and Sæl! ☯️
