Going Grey by iesnoth
Going Grey
Artemis goes grey prematurely and ROCKS IT. He would use it to his advantage so much.
Artemis in Slytherin by iesnoth
Artemis in Slytherin
I saw a thought on tumblr about Artemis meets Draco.
Artemis would passive aggressive the kid to death. Draco would feel so helpless and a bit like he was dying in Artemis's presence because Artemis would have his number from day one and humiliate him without breaking a sweat. Because Artemis Fowl II is BA.
Noir Icon by iesnoth
Noir Icon
So, this new icon doesn't translate well into the size of DA icons, but eh. It was a lot of fun to experiment with painting. It was pretty enjoyable since I know my face pretty well. :P
Since I got a DA account back in high school, posting art for an audience has influenced my art immensely. About 80% of this influence is positive: getting feedback, encouragement, connecting with other artists, learning.
But recently, I've been feeling the other 20%: namely, I'm doing art for the attention, not for the love of art. It's been a long time since I was overjoyed just to be drawing something I love, instead of anticipating the feedback or what I can make out of it.

So, I will set forth on an epic quest to regain my identity as an artist! By not posting art for a while.
I'll still be active on this site, replying to messages, and there will be a couple posts I already have in the works coming out (commissions, icon changes), but otherwise I need to do art with the knowledge that no one will see it for a while.

Thank you all for your encouragement and support over the years. This was not brought on by any event, and I am coming back in a couple months. This is simply another chapter in my journey, and I look forward to what I will learn.

God bless!

I'm a 23 year old with 2 degrees I don't know what to do with.
I like film and Internet critics, coffee, Indian food, and a good conversation.
I'm a Christian and an anarchist. Those two things coexist better than you think.
I'm branching out into the artistic world through freelance and webcomics. It's slow going, but I'm learning a lot.

Happy Birthday

It should happen that you find this day the start of one of the most marvelous years in your memory, joyous and profitable.  Growth of the best kind, in wisdom, skill, knowledge and joyous memory should and must take place.  Your smiles should become more frequent and easier, your sighs cushioned with rueful humor, those who know you should note your growing happiness and rejoice thereby.  Take the fond good wishes of those privileged to know you, even if just a little, and use them to build a fortress of smiles around your best ideals and happiest dreams.  May you always remember the days to come with joy and celebration, and may this be a very happy example of a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

This is the best birthday advice I think I've ever gotten, thank you.

I so hope it comes true.

Victoria, for years you have drawn and expressed that which I only wish I could, especially when it comes to the lesser-known Artemis Fowl. You've been an inspiration who has displayed gorgeous art. Thank you, and have a wonderfully happy birthday!
