Said "At the moment, my graphic novel with still no publisher in sight, but don't feel shy to send me a message if you're looking for an artist-for-hire!"

This is the second piece in the Sleeping Beauty series. Basically, the prince is taking his sweet time to show up (as some men do), and the princess has no choice but to wait if she ever wants to see the light of day again. Medium used were Copic markers (they're the best).

This is one of my main characters for my graphic novel (no publisher in sight). He's the misanthropic type, but he's not afraid to take out a few ghosts and demons. His face is colored with fiery colors why? There's a candle nearby. Basically, the idea for this drawing came from a scene in Lord of the Rings.

This was just an idea I had for a story, and this is a scene from said story. The person in the piece had lost his sister as a child, and while he was sleeping one night, his sister's ghost paid him a little visit. She was buried the red bracelet seen here in the drawing. Medium used were art pens.

I did this as an illustration of my favorite fairy tale as a child: Sleeping Beauty. This was the first piece where I used extensive detail.

Here is where it gets fun. These two, who here I shall call K and R, are the main characters for a graphic novel that I am hoping to publish. They have a special "job" that for the most part keeps them up in the dead of night.

This piece was inspired by a very distant memory I have of seeing a woman's funeral procession on TV. In the memory, the woman was wearing white, was covered by a white and thing funeral shroud covered in dark red roses. As it can be seen here, the dress is colored black and the woman's hair is longer and darker. The medium used were art pens.

This is a personal favorite of mine. The story is the woman in the artwork is a daughter of a powerful family and, as many know, powerful families have enemies. The medium I used were Copic art pens.

I had just begun to experiment with painting when I did this. It illustrates the struggle the multitudes of people face by trying to achieve inner peace, which is symbolized by the pale multi-colored wave, as water has often been a symbol of inner peace. The dark background with the handprints represent the people who are trying - and being blocked - to reach the wave.

A still-life painting I had for an art class. I used red as the background color to give the painting a warm, and almost homely, feeling.

This is a combination of surrealism and fantasy. The ocean is the mermaids' playground.

This is the painting I had submitted to the Fairchild Garden Challenge. It is a water flower that I had painted to make it appear as if it was emerging from the leaves.

This started out as a mental image I had. The dark sky and the black color of the mountain are to give it an forebodding mood.

This was just a result of a bored summer afternoon. My aunt was talented with floral arrangement, and I was able to learn a few things from her.

I did this painting for an AP Art class. The assignment was to paint an advertisement for a popular service or product. I've been pretty satisfied with it.

About Me:
Hello, people of Earth! How are y'all doing? I hope you're all doing okay; I'm very new to this website but I am in no way whatsoever new to art.

I have loved drawing since I was in diapers and I got serious about it when I was middle school, around the same time I got hooked on Japanese animation. I draw whenever I can, and I paint whenever I'm in the mood. I'm very comfortable with different kinds of art media, but my favorite medium to use are Copic markers; granted, they're not cheap, but they have a very wide range of colors and they can work like paintbrushes, only without the paint and funny-smelling water.

I've only got two major goals that I can list to date: get my Master's Degree in Environmental Science so I can kick King Coal and Big Oil to the curb and bring in solar...
