I actually don't have enough artwork to last a whole month, sorry about that . But the grand opening will still happen. Be patient and stay tuned!
Here's a little sneak peek for you!
Dragon MonthNow that I'm back, and my birthday is coming up soon, I wanted to do something special.
I'm announcing April to be Dragon Month here on my DeviantArt. I'll be posting a whole ton of dragon drawings. I'm mostly doing this because I really love dragons and I love coming up different designs for dragons, yet I noticed that I never really posted any dragons here. I'm not promising any upload schedule 'cause you know how well that turns out, but I will promise that I will be very active this month and will post quite a bit of art.
~Stay tuned for some awesome dragon art! ^^
Quick QuestionI recently found a new way to create outlines around my drawing
The new way is much more smooth, but kinda grew accustomed to the sharp corners of my old outlines. Which should I choose?
Yesterday was the Happiest Day in my Life.I'm obviously exaggerating here, but I went super giddy twice yesterday.
I was already having a good time because I went to an amusement park with my family, but something amazing happened.
My good friend :iconerikservin: surprised me with a wonderful gift.
He made a 3D model of Pyrelien and Animated it. Go check it out it was amazing.
But soon after that, I received another message and I won silver in :iconfakemon-united: 's monthly contest.
Yesterday was just one good thing after another.

I'm Back, plus announcementsSorry for being dead for so long.
I know you're tired of me saying that, but now I'm back for good.
I'll be able to post art at least once every two days with all the art I made over my break.
Also, I'm expanding a little bit.
I have a Twitter now. It's a little barren right now, but I'll make announcements and tease upcoming art.
I also created a Discord server. There you can hang out with me, make suggestions, and I even made a place where we can critique one another's art in hopes of improvement. Come on in there's plenty of space! ^^

Happy Belated Valentine's DaySorry for being such a ghost recently. I bet you guys are just sorta used to it now.
I've just been really busy. But, I'm here now! And only 3 days late to Valentine's day.
I might be making a few changes around here and tell me if you approve:
More character refs for Grimoire and Gauntlet. (Which should be in development in spring. WooHoo!)
I'm going to start a redesigning Pokemon like I do in collab just without the collab part.
A special surprise!
Just Updated Brefall for the last time! ^^ >>>>>
How do you like the new design? Hope you enjoy!
An Announcement for NovemberMe and a couple of my friends are going to start working on a special project during November.
During this time I won't be able to post very much art.
I'll still be active within this community and interact with you guys, but don't expect art from me in a while.
As for this "special project" I'll reveal it to you guys late November and hopefully many more monthly updates will follow!
Art UpdateI updated a good portion of my Orimons' art. It's not too much of a design change that they needed revamps, but the changes are still noticeable. Go check them out. Did you like the changes? Is there any change you recommend?

You can enter any traditional or digital drawing of an eye(s).

Community Project: The Vector Colouring Book! The Vector Colouring Book
At some point in our lives the majority of us have encountered colouring books. This could have been from your childhood, maybe your younger family members or your children... or if you're like me as a way to relieve stress!
These books of printed line art were coloured in by traditional tools... of coloured pencils, crayons and felt tips. For some of us, this was the doorway into learning and appreciating art.
There was a lot of satisfaction and joy in being able to finish a page or even a book! Often the hardest challenge was to stick inbetween the lines.
It's with this nostalga that I bring you a two stage Colouring Book project!
What is Vector Art?
In digital art there are two layer formats: raster and vector. Raster formats are based in pixels and vector is based in paths and points.
When you resize a raster image, you are expanding the pixels. Your program has to try to estimate what the colours woul

The Anti-Cliche ContestThe Anti-Cliché Contest
"An anti-cliché is a literary device or figure of speech that twists the meaning or phrasing of a known cliché. Although not named as such by literary critics, many writers, comedians, and poets have made use of the anti-cliché to provide a memorable and often ironic phrase, line, or passage."
