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.

Random Favourites

My tastes are varied and, thus, I favorite a variety of things. Some things here are gifts to me, some things are fanart, some are original, and there are even some photographs here.

Wishlist

I don't really have any room on my walls for prints, and expect no one to ever get them for me, but I do like these. Think of this as a secondary Favorites gallery.

So, ArkNorth and I are here watching the Oscars. Well, he's in the living room and I'm in the bedroom because I wanted to stretch out on the bed and it's my Chamber of Warm (the heating here makes it warmer than most other places in the house, and cooler in the summer).  

The guy who accepted the award for Best Adapted Screenplay (for "The Imitation Game," which I haven't seen yet), in referencing the sad fate of Alan Turing, talked about how when he was 16 years old, he attempted suicide because he felt weird and felt like he didn't fit in.  He accepted the Oscar on behalf of all the "weird kids" out there and encouraged people to "keep on being weird."  - One of those standard "I made it, you'll have your day" things that I always PAGH! at because I think "I never had my day and I'm too old and it's too late for me."  

ArkNorth shouted at me from the living room: (My real name), stay weird! 

I came running into the living room shouting "SKULLS!"  

And then I expressed that I think it may be too late for me, but still... Skulls.  Skulls, indeed.  

Tonight, the status of my Internet: Working.  Tommorow night, it will probably cut out again and might last for an entire day, considering how we think it is something with our neighborhood with one of the hub-boxes getting cold / not liking single-digit and below nights.  

Can't wait for spring.  I took a walk today in the 40 degrees.  It was nice.  I want more of that.

Now that my Internet seems to FINALLY be back up (I still don't trust it), I present art I dabbled with over the days it was out.  

My take on Cuccoos from the Legend of Zelda games.  They aren't like this in every game of the franchise (they are notably tame in Twilight Princess), in most titles, fans can expect the cute little chickens to be the most deadly of monsters.  

Especially in Hyrule Warriors. Attack the bonus-Cuccoo and you'll be greeted with an entire army of the things.  

Feeding the chickens was always Link's least favorite farm chore.  In this image, did he get away to nurse his wounds (and to look for a new hat?) or did he actually FEED the chickens?

My Internet is absolute trash right now.  

It's been out for over a day, and been jittering for the last couple of weeks. Turns out our entire neighborhood hub died or something. We've been on the phone back and forth with repair guys all day.  Their truck broke down in the snow or something... (was actually worried about the

For those of you whom I talk to on Trillian / AIM and various people around forums who might be missing me lately, I offer my sincere apologies.  

This weekend, I was busy entertaining Slagpit, so that nixes my online time right there.... too much cleaning up the kitchen and watching him play Skyrim and watching Monty Python and subjecting him and ArkNorth to OH, NO, HOLY CRAP, SHE'S GOT A NEW VIDEOGAME, WE WILL NOT HAVE OUR TELEVISION AND COMPUTER UNTIL SPRING. 

ArkNorth got me the most romantic Valentine's Day present a man can get a Legend of Zelda fan: LINK!  Kidding- Zelda, Midna, Darunia, and almost everyone who's ever mattered to Hyrule, including Pretty Hairs Ganondorf!  

Yeah, I've been playing Hyrule Warriors for hours on end.  I mean... I'm losing track of time.... Started a game today around 4:30 PM.... decided to quit at Midnight.  GAH!  Cia was a hard boss - especially since I didn't go with the character/weapon recommendation and decided to pit two dark sorceresses against one another and was dedicated to using Midna.  Yeah, yeah, Cia, you can make circles of darkness and summon Dark Links.... I've got Dark Wolves...which, in a way, are also Dark Links when you think about it... 

Fans of Twilight Princess who are wondering if the amiibo is worth it for the Spinner.... that stupid, stupid, STUPID useless weapon (in TP) suddenly becomes TOTALLY BADASS in Warriors!  I mean... that version of the Spinner IS HOW THE SPINNER IS MEANT TO BE.  I didn't know if the Smash Bros. amiibo worked with the game or you had to get a special one... you don't! It works with the Smash Link.  I haven't tried the Smash Zelda yet... I got that as a gift, as well.  

Um... I am in my 30s, yet I am such a spoiled child.   

But, yeah, that's why I've been kind not online as much lately.... Also, I just unlocked the modes with Pretty Hairs Ganondorf, so... yeah.  

See ya.

(Though I do have fresh inspiration for fanart).  The cuccoos...

I was poking around on Tumblr this fine evening.  It's not normally a place I go, but I'll poke around it sometimes if I remember a specific blog I encountered through a link on TV Tropes or something.  I've found that if I Google my Internet-name and "Fan Fiction" that a few people who run fan communities on Tumblr have my work on their recommendations pages.  (So far, all Legend of Zelda fics.  My other pieces haven't caught onto as much popularity).  I rather loved the description of my Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess horror fic, "Wolfhide" as being both good and something that readers would need therapy for upon a complete reading.  Anyway, tonight's foray started with looking up a webcomic / Hunger Games splice community I'd seen once and found interesting (looking it up again)... and I wound up doing outright searches for various fan communities just to see what's out there as far as blogs for my fandoms.  

Hey, if someone wants me to join Tumblr, they should ply me with shiny, shiny fandoms.  

Anyhow, that's how I wound up looking up "Super Smash Bros" and finding this BEAUTIFUL THING OF BEAUITFUL-NESS:  

supersmashbrothersfanfiction.t…  

It's not actually a fan fiction community, apparently.  It's a community where people submit out of context quotes gleaned from fan fictions.  According to the rules there, they will take quotes from well-written fan fictions as well as poorly-written ones, but they get a lot of badfic quote submissions, because they are hilarious.  

So, I've been scrolling through (I won't lie, I'm curious as to if anything I've done is there), but mostly just laughing my head off (quietly, it's 3 am and I don't want to wake anyone up) at quotes that are insane for being out of context.  

Some of them are a little racy, since, face it, about 90 percent of fanfic in the world is pairings, particularly badfics with their poor attempts at sexytimes, but I think my favorite as of writing this journal entry is this very simple feature: 

41.media.tumblr.com/e4ee72f113…  - "Why are you doing this?' Greninja said in a ninja way because he was a ninja."  


It's just... Yes, it makes me realize that a major hobby of mine (fan fiction) ... is delightfully weird. I wouldn't have it any other way.

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.


Enjoy!

Current Residence: Hyrule.
Favourite genre of music: Classic Rock, Alternative, Various
Favourite style of art: Fantasy, Nature Art, Surrealism, Realism, Anime.
Operating System: Windows XP
Shell of choice: Hmm... something made of bone?
Wallpaper of choice: Painted animal bones cover my walls.
Skin of choice: No skin. Bone.
Favourite cartoon character: Vash the Stampede.
Personal Quote: The more I learn about nature, the less guilty I feel about eating its creatures.

Thanks!

Sadly, I don't find as much fresh material as I used to, since I live in a suburban apartment now (strangely enough, a few skulls have found me on roadside walks, still)...

I do live next to a cemetary but... no... just no... though it has been joked about in my household. XD

You're welcome! I love your work.

I live in the city too, but a lot of people online sell skulls, so I get those to paint. I've cleaned the bones from roadkill before too, but even that is difficult when you have neighbours close by!

LOL at the cemetery jokes! I work at a funeral home so yeah.. similar jokes!
