For too long I have worried about Disney Fanart looking like something they would do. IN their own techniques. Or you know having that cartoon feeling clearly in each image I did of their characters or even my own. Now I wonder why? I mean I want to be as good or better than them in quality. Its been my dream since I saw the LIttle Mermaid. I didn't remember it 100% correctly until later the wording I had on that day "I want to be as good as Disney" I never said I wanted to be an animator or had to be to do so.

Anyways I'm not saying that its bad that I've done so many cartoons nor will that go away. BUT it will flourish in MY OWN way because even if Disney wanted me magically one day to actually work for them...(which will probably never happen because well who knows) but well the truth is I don't think it can or will...and even if it does why should I compromise what I really want to do. I have wanted to put more depth in my art for a while but I just really never knew how.

I mean people say wow you've got a great eye for perspective, or color. Or even ask if I airbrush or do watercolor with my work. I tell them its all 100% digital which shocks them. I say you know I hand draw the characters, scan then color. :D

I just really want to see some of my art pictures take a nice leap away from Disney's line obvious art. I hope you guys understand me. But lets make this clear, everyone should be free to do art their way. That's the magic of being an artist. Don't worry if Disney or Pixar or whoever will like it. Do what makes you happy as an artist, and people will see that passion in your work.

Don't ever compromise yourself....

Hyacinth by ADreamandaWishFanart
Hyacinth
This is Isabelle's older sister Hyacinth raises Isabelle after their mothers death. Originally in Sinborn Wings, she was weaker and looked dif. Anyways she has blindness yes but she is a strong character has powerful magic, and can heal. She isn't the sheltered girl she was in the original book. I like the change. Hyacinth was someone I always liked but I did not like how I portrayed her as weaker because of her blindness. She can touch you and if you are willing to let her do it she can see what you saw. So its cool :D that's how she knows what things look like.

Her little sister uses it a lot to guide her along at times, but still the point is even when her visions are cut off and she is blind she isn't a weakling.

Freedom of a Flight
Isabelle makes a comeback, this is her official outfit, that green dress, I mean she wears other things of course LOL! But that's her official. Anyways her hair will remain strawberry blonde, and her lips  have gone from blood red to slightly red. I hope you guys embrace this new look, and I am trying to figure out how to bring back "Sinborn Wings" I might change the title to "Tainted Wings" or something.....

I have other ideas for the story and it changed from love to rape, the demons are called demons and angels angels....and I think Isabelle's mother Daniah died.. so Hyacinth is her 'mother' to a degree...as her eldest sister.

Anyways :D I hope you enjoy all the new stuff and ideas. I am coming back refreshed, renewed...and ready to roar on in life!

Creativity! HERE I COME!

Tribute to the Past
I drew the original concept Princess Michelle in 2009, everyone was so interested in her story and from there bloomed the story. "Mirror of the Soul" which is done on writing and now in editing!

Book 2 Love Transcending is going so well!

Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
I draw and do digital and traditional pictures, and I am currently working on 2 books. I was for a while against selling my own work because I was concerned that it would cost me my license for creativity. But honestly now I believe that its not going to hurt me to do this. I also need all the extra money I can get to support my terminally ill mother.

I love writing, and drawing, and I even enjoy singing. I have fun in life and I try to help others out as much as I can. I don't need to be 'famous' to be successful or happy. This does not mean I don't have dreams or want to keep drawing and writing and even getting published. But you will find I am not focused on that.

To top it off I am also a Christian! I will be putting up more Bible art so if you love that then look at the gallery!

See you sooN!

If I were to chose between Walt Disney or DreamWorks to produce Mirror of the Soul and the other books in the series. Who would you choose?

I decided you needed a little pick me up, so I made you into  Rapunzel. A little experiment with face montages that I might do more of in the future. Hope you like it!

Oh my goodness!! I will have to look into your book because if you write like you draw I'll be hooked on it for hours! I'm so happy for you, it seems there are so few young writers these days, so I'm always happy to learn of one. But oh...your dear mother will be in my prayers, and if you ever need moral support, feel free to shoot me a note. You're so brave for dealing with so much. Keep fighting, soldier, and never stop wowing the world with that talent!

Thanks for your prayers for mom! I also am blushing over your compliments and thank you for your kind words. It helps me keep going and keep doing what I'm doing. I don't need to flow the way everyone else is. I want to do things my own way and shine in that way. I really believe you will love Mirror of the Soul, its me as a Princess. In 2009 I drew myself as a Disney princess adn I was plump not skinny...and Aurianfae one of my friends begged me for the story of Michelle and from there it just grew. LOL IT took time, and eventually I found the right path for the book. But since 2009 on and off I"ve worked on pictures and various verisons of this book. BUT what I am putting out now is 100% for sure the book. So yes there are older copies up that you could read if you wanted but they were not persued for many reasons.

Anyways :D I really am glad you are interested in the stories. I am working on Chapter 9. :D almost half way into my book now! :D

I gathered you needed a pick me up after your recent woes, so I put this together as a present ...

A Moment Of Quiet Contemplation

I said I'd give you an outing as a pink faerie princess, so here you are! Oh, I fired up a complete new set of wings for you ... you're "flight testing" them as it were!
