|Legend of Zelda fan art. Link's companions annoy us... then they make us love them.|
|I work in a variety of mediums and my works have a variety of themes. You'll find everything from painted found animal bones and other nature art to fantasy pieces, to original writing and even lots of fanart for some of my favorite things.|
Hello, I go by Shadsie. If you want to know my age, I "live outside of time." |
I am an artist of varied mediums, some of them unusual. My favorite medium is acrylic paint and I frquently use animal bones as a canvas. I find these out in natural places and meticulously clean them - I don't kill any of the animals to make my art, they're all just found.
Otherwise, I paint on canvas and paper. I draw, I sculpt a little and I even do a bit of digital work - in short, I work with whatever I can get my hands on and do a lot of experimenting.
I have an associate's degree in graphic design, but it hasn't seen much work. I have written fantasy novels that I'm seeking publication for and have not obtained yet. Otherwise, I am prone to becoming obessed with various entertainments and will do fan art for such. My gallery is split between fan art, works on skulls and bones, artwork related to my unpublished novels, original misc. artwork and my jewelrymaking experiments.
I am willing to take concrit on all works unless specified, even on older works for which I am too lazy to enable the new "critique" feature on.

The Cat CurseThe Cat Curse
Tradition holds that cats are magical creatures. In ancient days they have been everything from benevolent to wicked and, even today, they appear in films and stories as little tricksters. Those who have shared their lives with cats can attest to the animals having a special quality about them.
Not all magic is good magic.
My love and I live with a cat that's a bona-fide goddess. We do not know how aware she is of the extent of her power, but if you don't believe in curses, this true story is not for you or maybe it is. Reading this series of events may make a believer out of you.
My household consists of Bob, Welsper and me. Welsper is the fiercesome feline. She can be best described as a quiet little cat, except in the morning when she wants breakfast or when the house is quiet and she thinks she's alone. She cries loudly when hungry and loudly when lonely.
Second Floor RearSecond Floor Rear
It was a pleasant and downright boring evening in June when the Zombie Apocalypse happened.
Bob and I had just pulled into the single parking space allotted to us in front of the sub-divided house we shared with other tenants we never bothered to get to know that well. Our apartment was the one on the second floor rear. We'd been living there since winter and were still getting used to the place. It sat across the street from a cemetery that had seen continual use for over one-hundred years.
It's a peaceful place to walk in, really, when the corpses aren't popping up out of the ground.
To this day, I haven't any idea how the fresher members of the undead horde were able to pop the lids on their modern caskets. Those things are thick and pretty well-sealed. We just watched as, among the dancing fireflies, people just started tearing their way out of the ground, the finery they'd been
