Hello, I go by Shadsie. If you want to know my age, I "live outside of time."
I am an artist of varied mediums, some of them unusual. My favorite medium is acrylic paint and I frquently use animal bones as a canvas. I find these out in natural places and meticulously clean them - I don't kill any of the animals to make my art, they're all just found.
Otherwise, I paint on canvas and paper. I draw, I sculpt a little and I even do a bit of digital work - in short, I work with whatever I can get my hands on and do a lot of experimenting.
I have an associate's degree in graphic design, but it hasn't seen much work. I have written fantasy novels, which can be found on Amazon Kindle in both digital and paperback formats:
"A World of Rusted Dreams"
- In a future world a young girl named Mira lives in the town of Rust, which makes its living from scavenging the remains of the past. Discontent to remain there without having at least one great adventure in her life, she summons a Guardian from the Heavens to protect her on a journey to her nation's capital city. Guardians are spiritual companions that only come to those summon them with earnest hearts and can only be seen by those that believe in them. www.amazon.com/dp/B00HMGYHTK

"Malarkey and Belinda"
In the small nation of Serrif a creature is born as the first, the last and the only of his kind. He is derisively named “Malarkey” by the man who commissioned his creation as a way to spite the mages in his employ who thought his birth impossible.
Malarkey is a gryphon – a re-creation of a beast that had been extinct in his world for almost a century. His kind were creatures of loyalty and could be bonded to a single human as a protector with an unshakable faith. He was created to serve the king of Serrif, Lord Cirrit, as a weapon of war. But instead, the bond that is the blessing and curse of his blood finds him pledging his life to Belinda, the house slave assigned as his caretaker and adoptive mother.
As turmoil rises at the edges of their kingdom, as well as from within, the gryphon and woman must rely upon each other in a quest for mutual freedom. They must navigate a deadly world in which both men and beasts are against them. But still, they have each other – and for as long as they both survive, that might just be enough for the two of them to spread their wings and fly.www.amazon.com/Malarkey-Belind…

Otherwise, I am prone to becoming obsessed with various entertainments and will do fan art for such. My gallery is split between fan art, works on skulls and bones, artwork related to my novels, original misc. artwork and jewelry-making.
I am willing to take concrit on all works unless specified, even on older works for which I am too lazy to enable the new "critique" feature on.
