Hey all. Thought you might like to see how the brains behind the freaky artwork operates. I'm a junior in high school, 17 years old, and I live in lovely middle-of-nowhere Michigan. As a general rule, I tend to be very hard on myself when it comes to my artwork and writing; I know I can do better than what I have here. I just need a lot of practice. So if I say 'this isn't very good' or something like that, and I'm talking about my own work... For Goddess' sake, please tell me I'm wrong. Gimme a much-needed self-esteem boost, k? (Just tell the truth while you're at it.) Some prevalent themes in my artwork are dragons, elves, and lately mythical Japanese creatures. I also sometimes try to include spiritual themes, which will mostly relate to the fact that I'm Wiccan. (No, the crucifixions I draw, and all the bloody stuff, have nothing to do with that. Usually.) Now, some people have a tendency to hate on anime-style art, simply because it's anime. I'll say this; I have learned to draw in the anime style, I am trying to learn different styles as well, and I will draw in whatever style seems to fit the kind of picture I want to convey. Sometimes anime works a lot better, and sometimes realism is what I need to use. If you want to dispute that... well, that's what the comment option is for, isn't it? I hope I didn't scare you away. Or that you actually read this, and you probably didn't, in which case I wrote all this for nothing. But, anyway, have fun looking at my stuff, and please leave a comment or two at the door.
