I love to draw. My preferred subjects are animals/wildlife, I am just as heavily into animal behavior as I am art, particularly with canids. They go hand in hand at times, I love to educate people about animals through my art. n.n My favorite animals are wolves. I love them if you hadn't noticed. ;) I knew they were my favorite animal from the age of three.

I believe most people have something in common with a certain animal individual to that person fitting their personality. So I draw the people in my life as what I imagine their animal to be. I believe that if my soul could take any form it would be that of a wolf.
And I use that to draw strength and wisdom from.
Seeing in this way can teach us many things about ourselves.
Despite my strange way of seeing things many wouldnt guess that
I believe in God. I grew up in Christian faith, however I dont know if I
would technically call myself a Christian anymore.
Though my belief in the original Bible and God are strong.
I love everyone no matter who or what you are, say, or do.

I've loved to draw since I was very little, I started seriously trying to draw when I was 11 years old after watching an anime called "Inuyasha". The imagination and otherworldly creativity put into it blew me away and I started drawing the characters. This led me to watching many other anime, like "Wolf's Rain". And attempting to draw the beautifully designed characters over and over. Slowly learning how to draw better and better, I progress at a relatively good if not, quick pace.

I had just started shadowing my artwork in 2010 after picking up a book from the library called "How to Draw Real Animals" by Lee Hammond, that taught me how to shade/shadowing, adding some dimension to my work. And as of June 2013 for the first time I am finally taking art classes under my teacher Yily at the small "For the Love of Art Studio" close to where I live.
Here is a link to my teacher's gallery aswell as information on the studio: www.yilystudio.com/index.html

My favorite medium is graphite and colored pencils. <3
I use mostly my cheap mechanical pencil, 0.5. My Prismacolor colored pencils, and am practicing with watercolor pencils, watercolor, pastels, and oil paint.

I usually draw at night, when I know I wont be bothered and can concentrate.
Its always been that way. :)

A special thanks to every person who saw and liked my art on this site before I owned
a scanner and all of my artwork was uploaded in shitty quality, with my shitty camera. :tighthug:
Thanks for looking past the roughness.
And to those who stuck around. :heart:


Current Residence: My imagination...
Favourite style of art: Art that shows a piece of the artist is what makes good art in my opinion.
Shell of choice: Turtle?
Favourite cartoon character: Inuyasha, hands down.
Personal Quote: "Little did you know, you were staring a wolf in the face." ~me

^///^' awe thanks man.
Glad I am inspiring today's youth!
...that sounds like I'm getting old... D:

I never received the "Holy batcow" compliment before, just for the record, so thank you for that too. XD

If you want a little jump- I HIGHLY recommend the book "Drawing Real Animals" by Lee Hammond. ;)
It will help I promise. My sketchbook changed from nothing but line art to wildlife portraiture almost overnight after the first
few gradual drawings of balls, mice, and birds, seals onto polar bears, and then tigers.
I recommend it to everyone who says they want to draw like me.
Because that simple book kick started my learning by a lot. It made anatomy and shading "click".
In fact go to your local library, a lot, borrow lots of books on drawing.
That's how the greats did it before everyone got distracted by the internet. lol.
Educate yourself and you will advance yourself. :)

My library is tiny( I live outside a small town) but I will definitely put that on hold. Thanks for the suggestion!

About the Holy batcow - in the Batman comics, there is at one point a cow in the Batcave. Thus, Batcow. Look it up. XD

And, lastly, thank you for the watch! It feels so... exciting and pressuring to be watched by someone as good as you are! X3

Hey, sorry if I came across to you as rude, I didn't mean to be. I guess I kind of took your comment(s) insultingly and a little harsh, and kinda degrading. I just get defensive when it comes to my animals. But obviously we see things differently and we have different opinions so there's no point in arguing.
I was just defending myself and trying to get my point across but I guess there's no point in doing that.
Sorry... :)
