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 I've been Stuck in the Nutcracker and the characters are from my unpublished novella, and the other things belong to their listed owners.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.


Get ready for a frickton of sketchdumps.
I Have Defied Death by ShayLaLaLooHoo
I Have Defied Death
"I have seen war, and died in a foreign land. I've walked these woods, dead, ever since you were born. People have entered these woods and never come out, and that includes myself. I continue to exist after all those I once knew have rotted away. I have defied death herself, but I cannot bring myself to defy you, Emilia."

Surprise! My latest obsession is Washington Irving's "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"!
I've been wanting to adapt it for a while, but was never able to find an original way to. (The Disney version is surprisingly accurate.) However, I got the idea for this character, Emilia Turner, and it all fell into place. 
More about her will be revealed later.

I'm still working on shading, and it shows in this piece. If this looks bad on your screen, see the alternate version in my It may look better, depending on the lighting or brightness/contrast on your screen, or personal preference.
Anyway, fun fun, getting chased through the woods by a guy without a head. Yippee.

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!

I've got them scattered around my folders, mostly in Shiylancs and Nutcracker. The designs I have uploaded here for the Shiylancs are old though.
