So the one thing I miss about writing is world building. It’s actually my favorite part of the writing process, and I have been tinkering with a world building making a secret society or underground of witches (which is gender neutral in my world) called Witchkind. I had the vision of a piece connected with my Witchkind world. And to me, Stiles is connected to this world (plot bunny ahoy)! And then I found the model for his body, and it evolved into a rocker/glam  rock kind of feel. The hardest part is getting the background just right. This piece was so difficult, with so many, many pieces. I really love the end result though.

Scifi3So I wanted to do some scifi book covers, and I actually recently purchased some scifi stock images and I saw the model while searching through Deviantart. I just had to make it. I really love it and although it looked simple, the text was the hardest part.

CreedSo I thought about selling this, but to be it reminds me too much of Assassin’s Creed for me to do anything commercial with it, despite the fact these images are licensed for commercial use. This book cover took me forever to do, and the roofs and setting up the city, and getting the lighting and shading just right was the hardest part of this piece. This really was a labor of love, and I’m so proud of how it turned out.

Ladybug-Stilinski-FinalSo this another book cover by author that has given blanket permission. I did this piece over the weekend. Iam admittedly, not completely happy with it. I just couldn’t get the proportions and scale right for anything. I would like to note that the car that I’m using in this photo is not of the original jeep. This is why the jeep has plastic cover than the middle one in the show.  All in though,  I think it came out alright just the same.


Notice: By the way, I accidentally deleted my tumblr blog. So a lot of things you liked or reblogged are now gone. I am going to repost those posts eventually, but I just wanted to let you guys know!

Love and Marriage by Astolat So, I have long been a fan of Astolat. I mean she was the founding memebers of the Archive of Our Own, or as I like to call it my second home. It also a universal truth, that if there is a fandom out there, nine times out of ten Astolat has probably written for it. Then add to the fact that she has given blanket permission for any transformative work of her fanfic? It’s kismet for an artist or a podficcer. So, as one of the the latter, I decided to do art for this cute little fic. I was introduced to ‘Love and Marriage’ by the podfic that was done the lovely kalakirya, and have become a favorite fic of mine ever since.


As for the cover itself, it didn’t give me too much of a hard time. I think the hardest part of this cover was that I had a hard time getting the size and proporations right especially when it came to the marriage certificate and the wedding rings. Also getting the right coloring was also a struggle. I wanted something that gave the permission of romantic and fluffy. I think it came out alright as well.

Perdido Book Cover ap_bookcover3Okay, after a week of being so sick that I couldn’t freaking work,  I actually got the acutally urge to write. So I wrote this sad little Buffy fic (I recently read the comics) and I got caught up in a whole lot of Buffy feels. I decided to write a biracial latino Xander (because I love shoving diversity everywhere I can) and ended up with 800 words of weird notfic.


What I posting right is actually the second draft of the cover because I accidentally chose to work with stock that was for DeviantArt use only.  So I had to change the model at the last minute.

Strive Seek Find Yield Star Trek So I always been a huge fan of this fic, it is in fact one of my favorite Star Trek reboot fics.  So when I read that she has given blanket permission on any spin-offs such as fanart and podfics on her works, I nearly jumped at the chance to take a crack at producing a fanart for it. This piece looks very simple, but in fact far from. I had to manipulate everything, and it was way harder than it looks.


ETA: This is like the third time I had to repost this because I keep messing up the title.  I should never post while sleep deprived.

Mahdêl by Starr Falling (Cover Art) So tomorrow is my best friend Starr Falling’s birthday. However, I’m in fact a terrible bff, and human being,  because I forgot yet again to send her card.  So in hopes of making it up to her, I did this art for her story which I got permission months ago to do.


So this is a special shot out to my best friend, one of the three people in my life who encouraged me to be an artist. Who always listens to my rants, who is there to always enable me, and to cheer me on. I love you honey, sister of my heart, partner in crime and my forever platonic life partner.Happy Birthday!  ♥♥♥♥


ETA:   You can find the original story here.

00Q BDSM Cover ArtSo I needed more practice, and I just made an awesome new friend Xphil98197, and I asked her to prompt me and this was the result. Now, the summary completely lit fire to my imagination. This was also inspired by my recent find that I found at the library of Renaissance/Roman Art. This piece was like 90% photo manipulation on my part and it was a real good stretch of my skills.

Sterek Book CoverThis was done at the request of the fabulous Plot Queen, who basically gave carte blanche to do what I wanted. I actually was so nervous about doing this piece that I scrapped at least once version of this cover, before making this final piece. I love how it came out, and it’s a bit more violent than I usually go with my art, but it really fits the story.  But most of the credit goes to AshenSorrow who made such a fabulous pre-made background that just fit the atmosphere I was going for. So kudos to he/she/ze for that.


So do you love it or hate it?  I always love feedback, and feel free to tell me what you think.

Red Queen to Overwatch  by BootsnBlossoms, Kryptaria I’ve have always been a fan of BootsnBlossoms and Kryptaria’s 00Q fics. I loved the James Bond movie ‘Skyfall’ (it’s my favorite movie out of the Daniel Craig’s Bond movies), but both authors made fall in love with James Bond, Q, and Alec Trevelyan. So it goes without saying that I was overjoyed to get permission to do art for one of their stories. Now I do admit, that I was going to art for ‘Ordianry Numbers’ but it has no shortage of art for it. So, I decided to art for ‘Red Queen to Overwatch‘ instead.

Book Cover of Coming Undone by KouriArashiSince my first poster that did for my favorite story of Kouri Arashi’s (gingersnapwolves) series ‘The Boy In Red’ got so much love from my fellow fans, I decided to follow that  up with a cover for the first story in the series, ‘Coming Undone’. I don’t know if I will do more covers for the rest of the series (They are like 15 fics so that is a heavy undertaking).  Anyway, I hope you enjoy this art and feel free to follow me here on tumblr or my site to keep up with further updates!.
