“Peace is what I leave with you; it is my own peace that I give you. I do not give it as the world does. Do not be worried and upset; do not be afraid.” John 14:27

Hello, I'm Taralen. You can call me that name, Sunny (my nickname used by WoW friends) or simply Tara. I'm an artist, writer, gamer, and Lolita. I may draw myself as a wood elf but I am NOT otherkin. At all.
Writing is my passion and art is my hobby, but I'm still a student in both. I am always striving to improve my skills.

I'm brutally honest about my feelings and thoughts, so it may be a bit hard to deal with me if you can't have a conversation without sugar-coating. Other than that, I am a pretty chill person. I love to make people laugh and feel good. I'm very big on environmentalism and pretty anti-consumerism, but I do have a few material hobbies like collecting dresses and figures. Staying in shape is super important to me, and I try to exercise regularly even though I'm stupidly lazy about it.
Divider - Sparkles by Inkori
I have a history of mental illness, and I am quite open about this. I have anxiety disorder which sometimes makes it hard for me to concentrate and think coherently. It also makes it difficult for me to sleep, but I do what I can to manage it. I used to have depression, but I am proud to say I no longer suffer from it.

Waterfall Rain and Fridge Weather

Fri Feb 15, 2019, 4:53 AM
That's how cold it's been where I am.
The rain out side is so heavy it literally sounds like a waterfall is dropping its entire load on the house. It's also as cold as a fridge lately (40 F).

The electricity bill has gone up so high.


ROUND 2: Which title sounds the best? Winner will be the new title for… 

37 deviants said A Path of Ash and Blossoms (winner of previous two polls)
12 deviants said Serenade of the Sacred Lily
8 deviants said Paean for the New Dawn (yes it's just one word change lol)

Hi! Sorry to disturb you but I recently discovered your art (beautiful) and I noticed the link to the webcomic Oh princess is broken... Is the webcomic still available?
Taralen Featured By Owner 11 hours ago  Professional General Artist
No worries! You are not disturbing me at all. ;)

And no, it is not up anymore because it's being reworked to this story:…
You weren't missing out on much anyway since I didn't even finish one chapter of it.

The rework has the same characters except it's much more refined now than it was back when I started it 10 years ago as "Oh Princess." I'm currently working on that story right now, but it's not posted or published anywhere yet because it's still in the drafting stage. However, I am always uploading art for it, so if you're still interested, you can just check back every now and then to see some updates there. I also post lore on many of my drawings and paintings for those who are interested! ^^

Oh I see, well thanks for all the information! Your project looks really good (well, it may be more my passion for elves and fairy-esthetic that speaks here, since I haven't had time to read the story in itself), but still the characters look interesting, and some ideas are really good (like the idea of Letticus gaining weight with the meat ~ it is really funny and clever). 
Also, I wanted to ask you: on the description of one drawing of the Sprite King (i think it's the one where he gets out of "bath"), there is a link to an old drawing of yours that was apparently describing the different groups of your lore and their royalty, or something like that. But the drawing is now missing, so I wanted to ask: have you posted somewhere else the description of the different groups/royalties? 
Taralen Featured By Owner 2 hours ago  Professional General Artist
Lmfao the whole meat thing is no longer canon because I feel it makes no sense now, but yeah I will admit it was funny for a time. XD

You're actually combining two different stories of mine. The one with the fairies is Fairly Enchanted found here:…
That has a completely different setting and lore than my other story A Path of Ash and Blossoms (formally Oh Princess!), so if you are interested in that one, I don't have as much lore posted for it because it's not as developed.
As for the drawings you're referring to, no those were removed because they are outdated, and one of the characters featured on that belongs to my ex co-author who I no longer associate with at all. Thank you for reminding me to remove it from the description. XD
