Twisted Fairytales: Belle by Chuchy5
by Chuchy5

Wow, this is very nice, very deep and meaningful. The quote is your description is very mysterious and profound, it adds depth instead ...

Bella Morte by Kendra-Paige

'Bella Morte' means 'Beautiful Death' in Italian...and that's exactly what this is. Angelina looks so soft and graceful and ethereal, f...

DARIA by MartaSyrko

This is gorgeous! The warm colors, even in winter, are a great touch. The blurred background looks busy, so it makes her look very peac...


This might just be an awkward analogy, but you know how some women -- and apparently some men -- get "baby fever"?
Despite having a pretty busy summer so far, I think I have drawing fever right now Da Vinci Fella (Artists) 

There's the other 10 or so Shakespeare couples that I know of and want to draw, which my muse luckily came back for (I don't have ideas for everybody but I'll think of them and consult :iconflute-maniac: if I need help lol) and now for some reason I'm also dying to make some Loveless fan art. But for that I don't know what to draw :| (Blank Stare) I have an idea in my head for Mikado again, and an even darker one than this, but I don't think I want to draw it...since it's very similar to the drawing I already have of her, it would probably feel like repetition. For a less serious one, I also have a vague idea of a drawing of Ritsuka and Seimei in chibi form doing karate...:D (Big Grin) 

Maybe if anything interesting happens in Carciphona, I'll think of a drawing idea for that, too...or I might even think of an idea for what's going on now :) (Smile) Like Veloce reaching desperately for her beloved Vocruen, tears streaming from her eyes as Vocruen slips through some broken glass between them into a dark fragmented XD

I'm a dreamer and an artist just like all of you . . .

I have been drawing since I was six years old. I didn't think much of my drawings, but my classmates were stunned by them. I drew a pair of pink Converse sneakers when I was nine years old, and my mom was so amazed she got me to sign it and made copies of it to everyone she knew. Then she consigned me to a ton of art courses in drawing, painting, and a little of ceramics.
Art is a natural talent and a gift. Sports have different seasons, school ends eventually, but art stays with you forever.
To me, music and art are the most beautiful and compelling forms of self-expression and catharsis. Art is the breath of life in me; it is my passion, my joy, and my sanctuary. I draw and write whenever I feel the pull - I have much more time in the summer, but despite school, workload, and stress, I draw and write in between.

I mostly do photography, anime art, fan art, realistic drawings, and literature. I have many art pieces, I am the founder of Ran-maoFC and a contributor to PhotographySeasons, and I update my journal entry every few days to weekly :)

I know it looks like I'm asking for a lot but every bit will help!! I have a new group, Ran-maoFC, and when it gets enough members I would like to have contests for it but I don't have any prizes besides features :( So if you could donate, that would be nice!
