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.

Storm (X-men)


I want to say first with a disclaimer that I love Halle Berry. She’s a wonderful biracial actress and I was proud that she continues to play the role of Storm. However, when I envision storm, I always envision someone with dark skin like mine. And when I was first introduce to Lupita Nyong’o, I was so happy that actress with the same skin tone as mine was being recognized as beautiful. You see in the black community, there is a great bias against people with darker skin. It too me a long while to figure out that just because I was darker than the rest of my family, that it didn’t make me less beautiful. So when speculation of who the young storm would be and Lupita’s name came up, I was overjoyed, because their would finally a superhero that looked like me on the silver screen.


I was a little a disappointed when they didn’t cast Lupita. So this is my tribute to Lupita and to my favorite African superhero, Storm. This piece was without a doubt a labor of love. I actually almost had a break down over getting her hair just right, because Lupita doesn’t look right with long hair. I am also not really sure I got the head size just right, but I had to finally shrug and make my best guest.

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!

Algo Queda Xander-AGUAnother cover for the Xander Harris centric story that I’m currently writing.  The name is in Spanish because a good portion of the over all series is going to be in Spain or Puerto Rico or Chile. I haven’t decided yet.  I blended two pictures into one, because I love the position of the one picture, but my vision had a window. So I just blended them. together. I wanted to add junk, but I couldn’t get the right picture to do that.  Oh, well!

Xander Harris From Buffy: Vampire Slayer Xander-Updated---FINALSo I’m currently working on a BtVS Xander centric fanfiction story, and I had a vision of Xander that wouldn’t get out of my head. By the way, I really hate plotbunnies. They are evil, evil things. Anyway, this is the result of the that plotbunny. This photo manipulation wouldn’t be as great without my friend Mel, who basically gave some good constructive feedback. So shout out to her as well.

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.

Demon King StilesIf I thought my last photo manipulation composition was hard, but boy this one right here brought me to tears and to near break down. I had to literally quit for the night, and start the next day. However, all the pain, tears, and headdesking was all worth it.  It turned out lovely, and more awesome than I can imagine. I think almost everything in this piece is photo manipulated.

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.

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.

Q007So I love typography posters, but I have no patience for it, and I have to think up a LOT of words to describe a person, hence why I only made up to maybe the neckline this time. LOL. The subjects are my favorite secret agent man and his quartermaster.  I just wanted to show the 00Q fandom love.

Taking Risks by DuWinterSo I thought I would challenge myself and dip my toes into full book design. And let me tell you it was a bitch, and bow down to people who have to do this all the time. I’m not completely happy with the book design, but it refuse to come out anyway.  *lesigh*


I want to thank Duwinter for giving me permission for not only allowing me to do the book cover, but for allowing me to convert his awesome story into ebook formats.  Thank you! ♥♥♥


The book is available for download here and be sure to check out the original verison of this story at duwinter’s livejournal.


ETA: I totally messed up the title to the ebooks and the cover. I have no clue how I missed it. The link is now to the corrected version.

Timeless Swan Queen Wallpaper So I wanted to branch out into the wallpapers, and icons. I wasn’t really happy with my earlier attempts. However, I was inspired by some fairytales, and then I have long lurked in the swan queen fandom. So immediately set out to make a swan queen wallpaper. It didn’t come out all not too shabby. You can download the desktop and phone wallpapers, along with social banners for both Twitter and Facebook.

Emergence Book CoverSo I actually read a transgender Harry Potter fic (which I can’t for the life of me remember the name or the author) and then I read Dauntless by Tsumi_Yuki which featured a very badass female Harry Potter and I was like I WISH I COULD WRITE IT.  I might do some RPG, storyboard/collage, or not!fic for it. You never know. *shrugs*


I actually like Tsumi_Yuki’s version of Harry Potter, but I actually like the transgender Harry’s version name of Aster. It just clicks with me. I also like the reverse that instead of looking just like James,  female Harry Potter takes after Lily. So dark red hair, and green eyes.


I might do more in this verse, but right now this is all I got.

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.

Derek Hale - Banner


I did this because Derek Hale will forever be my alpha *grins*. This is primarily a Facebook banner and icon set, although both can be used for other social networks as well. There is also a plain version with no text on it in the pack as well. You can download this pack here.

Boy-In-Red25I actually got permission to do art for this work(and the rest of The Sum of It’s Parts Series) by @gingersnapwolves (Kouri Arashi) when I was working under another pseudonym. However, I really didn’t like the result and I wanted to give her something that was worthy of her awesome series.

ETA: I totally missed up on the title, so I reposting the corrected version.
