Hey, you can call me Sola! I’m a young adult female artist in the US with a healthy obsession for animals, nature, and storytelling which shows in my art and characters! I’m a recent graduate of my state college’s four-year Animation B.F.A. program, and I am now slowly, steadily working towards my goals of being a professional illustrator and published author in the next five years. I got my start in digital art on a virtual pet game website called Chicken Smoothie, took private and public art classes all throughout school, was top of my class in an interdisciplinary arts scholars program at college, and have decided that I want to make a priority of staying creative for the rest of my life. I’m not very great at social media, but I’ll try my best to share in-progress work with you all. When I’m not working on art, I’m usually writing, reading, working another job, practicing competitive swimming, or getting friends/family together.
My favorite animals are the cliches... felines, canines, and dragons, if they count. But I’m also super in love with some quirkier critters: bats, viverrids, alligators, and owls. And if they were real/still alive, cryptids, monsters, aliens, hybrids and dinosaurs would totally be in my corner.
Being a writer, critique comes fairly effortless from me so if you’d like some in-depth feedback on your art I’m happy to lend it! I especially like seeing the work of fellow character, animal, and creature artists, since you all motivate me to create!
Also, spread the word, $10 Commissions are open!

Hey, Sola! Strangely, I've been wondering about you lately (I'm a mutual from your old account). So this is where you've gone off to. Your new artworks are excellent.
