I am an 18-year-old who loves animals. I love all kinds of animals, and currently have a dog, fish, guinea pigs, and chickens. Our family also has three other dogs, a cat, and a horse.I am a Christian and hope to honor God through everything I do - including my artwork :) I go to an awesome church and am very thankful to be able to hear excellent preaching every Sunday.I have drawn horses ever since I could scribble unintelligible images with crayons, though up until a few years ago they weren't too pretty :P  I also have a DeviantArt account, which will (obviously) be updated much faster than my account here, and more often with non-fantasy art. However, I will not abandon elfwood  :D  It will just take longer for my most recent pics to get uploaded here.I like to use graphite pencils, colored pencils, ball-point pens, fine-tip sharpies, watercolors, acrylics and am trying to get into oils. I draw/paint mostly horses/unicorns/pegasi, and *try* to draw people. So far I'm not that great at people! I also love photography...Sometimes I am just out of ideas for equine drawings, so any requests will be well considered. I can do art trades, too, although I will probably only do horse-like or other animal creatures. I am also doing the thing where I will draw something for each 100th commenter... so yeah...I have been working on backgrounds recently, and hopefully most of the critters in my gallery will have one. Meanwhile enjoy the pics that are up and leave comments if you feel like it. I would love critique and suggestions. You can say my artwork stinks or is awful - but if you do, please tell me why :) Thanks for visiting my lil corner! If you comment me, I will comment you! UPDATES Still working on way too many projects at once to be able to get anything done! Argh! College doesn't help, either. I have like, what, 50 WIP's? Sad, I know XDI have a wyvern's account... all the great writers here have inspired me to get some of my work critiqued. I write because I like to write, and not many people have read my stories, so they may not be much good at all. I guess I will find out :P I still have to upload something... ah I am a procrastinator!  Also, my younger sister has an account at  :)  I got rid of several old pieces that were starting to really bother me... hopefully no one will miss them. I don't! :P I like Animals, reading, writing, art, philosophy, Christianity, photography, jewelry-making/beadwork, gardening, and on and on and on... Favourite movies Uhhh... does LOST count? Eee, I love LOST. Favourite books Most Robin McKinley books; C.S. Lewis' space trilogy; Lois Lowry books - I basically like a good story. I tend to veer away from popular series... never read Harry Potter... don't intend to. Maybe that's good, maybe that's bad. Meh. Favourite music Relient K, Switchfoot, Linkin Park, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus - but above all, I LOVE soundtracks :) Esp. The Village, Pirates of the Carribean, etc. etc.
