|One of my favorite pieces ever!|
I am an art and psychology student going to college at this point in time. I specialize in traditional art and I am an aspiring photographer. I also dabble in fanfiction every now again. You can view my fanfiction in the link below. My subjects of art range anywhere from fan art for various series (be it television, anime/manga, novels, etc.) to original work through traditional art mediums and photography. Besides my love for art and psychology, I love animals. Animals have always been a huge part of my life and I would hope to do something with animals as a career one day. I am an advocate for the adoption of animals and highly discourage buying from backyard breeders/puppy mills. I do however, also support responsible ethical breeding by breeders that have years of experience and are out to preserve healthy dog breeds. I also have quite a bit of experience with a variety of animals. The kinds of animals that have graced my life include dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, fish, hermit crabs, and chickens. At this time, I aid in caring for/own representatives of all of the previously mentioned except for hamsters and fish. Some animals I would like to own in the future include a small herd of goats, a horse, and a leopard gecko.|
In the realm of dogs, Border Collies and Border Collie mixes are my personal cup of tea as far as dog breeds go. Their intelligence, energy, and their strong desire to please make them perfect companions for myself. But I do have experience with many varieties of dogs and I love all breeds and temperaments of dogs. However, I do have breeds that are especially dear to me for various reasons. These breeds include Border Collies (of course), German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, Australian Shepherds, Rough and Smooth Collies, all varieties of Setters, Brussels Griffons, Affenpinschers, French Bulldogs, Boston Terriers, Doberman Pinschers, Labrador Retrievers, Bearded Collies, Old English Sheepdogs, Australian Cattle Dogs, Bichon Frises, Sighthounds in general, Coonhounds, Boxers, Cairn Terriers, Shar Peis, Bull Terriers, Dalmatians, and the beloved mixed breed (aka Heinz 57 or mutt). Rest assured though, I love all shapes, sizes, breeds, and energies of dogs.
Almost all of our animals are rescues from shelters or ones I came across that were dumped. We have three beautiful and intelligent Border Collie mixes (all rescues), Asher, Nellie, and our youngest, Teddy. These dogs are my life and all have suffered some form of trauma before coming to me. I have helped in their rehabilitation and now they are thriving. In addition to my dogs, we have our cats; Oranges, Candy, Atticus, Vincent, Sophie, and Jeanie (Rest assured, they all don't all live together! Atticus and Vincent live with my grandmother while the others live with my mother.). Oranges, Candy, Atticus, and Vincent are all cats that I have rescued from off the road. As for Jeanie and Sophie, they are Candy's kittens (I still refer to them as kittens even though they are adults). All are altered and living happy lives. In addition, I have a hermit crab; Sebastian who is a Caribbean Purple Pincher Crab (what an inventive name, right? lol). This crab was purchased from a reputable, family operated pet store that has staff that are experts in hermit crab raising. I know ideally that hermits tend to do better living in pairs or small communities, but at the moment, there are no hermit crabs available for purchase in my immediate area. Despite this set-back, Sebastian is thriving in is solitary existence. This is my second time trying to keep hermit crabs, so I hope this time will be more successful. I also assist my grandmother in caring for her 12 chickens. She has the following breeds in her flock: 1 Australorp, 5 Brahmas, 2 Delawares, 1 Orpington (the Buff variety) and the latest additions; 3 Americaunas. The latest and youngest member of the family is my New Zealand White bunny that was no longer wanted by his owner. His story is a bit bittersweet. The typical rabbit story that one commonly hears. Someone gets a rabbit, doesn't know what to do with it, and sells it to whoever the Hell wants it. Fortunately, I chanced upon him and considering I have wanted a rabbit for quite a while now (about five years), he's now in good hands. I also was able to meet his breeder (he is actually a pedigree) and she was a joy to get to know. She was very knowledgeable and responsible on her part as a breeder and is happy to know he has a proper and loving home now. Honestly, I don't know why anyone would dislike him. He is the sweetest rabbit I have ever met and doesn't have a mean bone in his body. He loves to be handled, petted, and hand fed. He loves all of us, including the dogs and cats, and is just all around wonderful!
I do hope you all enjoy my work on DA!

|Current Commission Work:|
OPEN FOR COMMISSIONS!
I am going to take three commissions at a time because that's the amount I can handle. I live a very busy life and I have to find time to do these commissions and still have time for other projects and activities. Once these are filled, no more commissions will be taken until these spots are open once more. Thank you for your patronage in advance.
I am working towards enough points for a 12 month Premium Membership. I do not have the resources to physically buy myself a 12 month membership so I am hoping I can earn it through points. Any donation amount would be awesome. I will even do point commissions if people are interested.
Here's what I am willing to do:
The best fan art I put out tends to be in the forms of:
- Adventure Time
- The Slayers
- The Hub's Pound Puppies
- Disney themed work
- Dinosaur King
I am also working towards live action fan art from shows such as:
- The Red Green Show
- The Closer
- Major Crimes
But I am also open to other fan art so long as it follows the following criteria:
- No excessive gore. A little blood is fine, but nothing grotesque.
- Nothing sexually explicit or filled with sexual fetishes (Pairings, both heterosexual and homosexual, are fine but I am not going to create anything that is especially sexual. Kissing and hugging is fine though. I also do NOT do incest pairings.)
- All credit of fan art made by me should be given to me.
The same applies to any original art. Original art includes:
- Animal Portraits
- Original Characters, etc.
- References are required for any original art.
- All art can be done in my personal style, realism, or, in the original style in the case of fan art.
Mediums that pieces will be completed in will most likely be completed in a dry material such as colored pencils, dry pastels, charcoal, and pencil. But I am willing to do something in watercolor or acrylic if it is strongly desired.
5 points = outline (traditionally with pen or pencil)
7 points = basic coloring through traditional medium (i.e. colored pencil, prisma marker, prisma pastel, charcoal, watercolor, etc.). Does not include background.
10-20 points = color job in traditional mediums listed above with background. Point contribution varies based on the complexity of the background.
