The Nutcracker Prince belongs to Lacewood Productions, The Mouseking's Tale belongs to GDeNofa, Nuts! I've been Stuck in the Nutcracker and the characters are from my unpublished novella, and the other things belong to their listed owners. If they don't have credits, they are usually mine, art of things I've seen and loved, etc. If you want to use any of these pictures, feel free to ask, unless you already have permission from me. I won't say no usually.


And these are my favs. These are better.


The Headless Horseman (Severed neck) by ShayLaLaLooHoo
The Headless Horseman (Severed neck)
Tagged for gore because you can see the inside of his neck. (It's probably very inaccurate as to what the inside of a neck looks like, but meh.) It's not gross, it's just red with a neckbone peeking out. Thankfully, my style is not that realistic.
See other color variations of this here: whoot/a>

Upon doing research, I realized the Headless Horseman was actually a German soldier fighting alongside the British, and his head got knocked off by a cannonball. Thanks to my Nutcracker story, I knew what German uniforms looked like at this time period. (Seriously these uniforms guys ugh.)
I will be adding to his backstory (and also getting into the mechanics of his ghostness) and giving his a name that will be revealed in the story. His horse, however, is exempt from this rule, and I will tell you that she is named Minerva.
Also he never misses leg day. Look at those thighs. (Bow chicka bow wow)
Um...that's all I can say as of now.
Sleepy Hollow Emilia and Katrina by ShayLaLaLooHoo
Sleepy Hollow Emilia and Katrina
Ehm...well, this is Emilia Turner and Katrina Van Tassel from my variation of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. (Katrina was in the story in the beginning, Emilia is an OC. I promise Emilia fits without detracting anything from the other characters. She does important things and interacts with the other characters without being a hindrance.)

Katrina, on the right, doesn't actually have that body type. In the books, she is described as "plump as a partridge" and comes from a wealthy household, so she's probably well-fed. She is going to be drawn as very round and curvy. I just didn't want to re-draw another female figure, so I copied and pasted Emilia until I figure out the proportions of larger women. (It's gonna be awesome!) Her skirt will be shorter, true to her ankle-showing nature. She'll hopefully be very accurate to the book.

(On the right) Emilia is a schoolteacher, teaching afternoons versus Ichabod's mornings. She's logical and level-headed, which leads to her snarky attitude and her inability to believe in superstitions. (Will this change? Oh ho ho spoilers!) She enjoys reading, but is an awful cook (to contrast to Ichabod's endless hunger.) There's a bit more to her that might end up being spoilers, so I'll stop there.

Anyway, enjoy!

Hey guys. 
Um, I haven't talked to many of you in a while, but I still want people to actually look at this. It's important.

This is going to be about my writing and art, and where it will be placed from now on.

I'm going to dedicate my deviantArt page to fanfiction and art. I am also considering making another blog for larger pieces and things pertaining to my stories, like
character designs, settings, or anything else I may need online.

My original works, (although I'm fairly certain only ZataGoddess reads them,) will be viewable on my Figment account, along with others. This means that original stories, like Holly's Wish and others I was planning on writing, will be taken down from here, edited, and moved there. I'm planning on doing this so I can hopefully get more attention for my writing, and less for my art. So, please check me out on figment, too. It's a great place for young writers.

Speaking of art, please read this, Especially the one entitled Do you take commissions or something similar? I'm doing one last request due to a misunderstanding, but please, no more! I do art trades only, and I'll agree to it if you tell me all the details of the trade first. Don't give me gift art and expect me to do something in return.
I love how popular my art is, (which isn't really that popular,) but I feel like no one reads my writing or journals, into which I put much more effort.
As you've probably noticed, I've bolded the most important parts so that you guys don't have to spend too much time reading this.

Please, pay attention to this part! This is stuff that I'm focusing on or ignoring!
:bulletred: I'm focusing on my Music Meister fanfic so I can wrap it up.
:bulletred: I'm uploading some short stories on my figment, entitled The Shiylancs. This is where I'll be uploading those one-shots and drabbles from now on. 
:bulletred: I'm taking a break from the Nutcracker and any associated things. Why? I had serious writer's block with that story, and my sister told me to leave it alone for a year. So, that's what I'm doing. No more telling me what I should draw and what I should stop drawing.
:bulletred: In fact, I haven't touched my sketchbook in weeks. Don't expect anything new.
:bulletred: Please, please, before I accept an art trade or anything, tell me what's in the drawing! I can't do animals, I can only do people.

Anyway, if you made it to this point, congrats. If you comment, that'd be great. Please, I like hearing from you guys and talking. I'm a person, not a machine that churns out writing and art.

Hey, Shayla, I see you're birthday's next week! Unfortunately, I'm a little short on ideas. ^^; Anything you want me to make you? (I like getting birthday 'wish lists' like this. :D)

Music Meister, Mina, or any of my other OC's would be great!
