Ooh, neat! I like it :D As always, I love your coloring technique. It's basically smooth shading, but with the littlest hints of brush. ...


Not dead, but not active either... that's the gist of it! I love my friends here and deviantART as a whole, but with so many responsibilities I have to be honest with myself and put some of my hobbies and passions on hold. Here's a little news:

--I got promoted to a full time sales position at my department store! I sell the store's preppy new clothing line, Elephant and Quatrefoil. (That's not its real name, but if you've seen it, you'll be like "Oh yeah, that stuff!" It's like off-brand Lilly Pulitzer.) 

--I still work Thursday mornings at my county's domestic violence and sexual assault recovery agency. If you suddenly get messages from me on Thursday mornings, it's because I'm sitting there waiting for calls to come in.

--Graduate schooooool! I'm applying now, hoping to get in next fall to a Clinical Mental Health Counseling program. There are so many little hoops to jump through. Forms, dates, essays, letters of recommendation, transcripts... 

--I'm still making art, and I am really excited to share it. However, actually sharing it online isn't practical at the moment. I'm tentatively hoping to become active again in January. Retail tends to slow down then.

Everybody, have a wonderful Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Solstice, and New Year!

I lost the password to both my old account and my old email address, so here I am.

-Centaurs, unicorns, horses, and other graceful hoofy beings are my favorite creatures to draw.
-I should probably paint more.
-Wanna talk about Transformers (mainly More Than Meets The Eye)? I’m secretly obsessed.
-There’s a little piece of pencil lead embedded in my right hand. It’s the source of my artistic powers! (No, it’s not)
-I spent a year in Osaka teaching English, learning Japanese, and playing cello. Hit me up for top secret hiking trail information.
-Education: B.A. in music and art. Current job: working at a department store and teaching English lessons. Hey, my degree isn’t useless! I’m saving up for grad school…
-My old accounts are andalasur and Valkeus in case you want to e-stalk me.
-I’m slowly writing the Great American Fantasy Novel. (I think a lot of us are.) I started my first draft when I was 9. It's significantly less terrible now.

deviantART-related info:
-I love helpful comments and critiques! I always return detailed comments on my art.
-I've been on and off deviantART since 2005. You can see my archives at andalasur (2005-2008) and Valkeus (2012-2013).
-I don't always give watch for watch, but I do return detailed comments! I tend to watch people back if they give detailed feedback.
-You can tag me in a journal, but I'll either decline or just answer the questions without tagging anyone else. No chain letters, please.
-Trades, commissions, and requests are closed for now, but I'll open them later when I have time.

This is one of my favourite stories on this site:…

I decided to make it a story based on a picture Cartcoon did for me two years ago. c:
