Sailing Away The Western Fire-stars of Life by AzureParagon

This is really amazing. The first thing I noticed were all the details and swirls of stars and beauty you put into making the outer spa...

*splutters* How...wha...? Don't ask.

Soooooo...donations for whatever now.

You must be logged in to donate.
After spending a long, loooooong time without one after my old computer's fan broke, I finally have a nice new computer, for college and beyond! It is shiny and has a touch screen as well, so if I can figure out some sort of stylus besides my finger, I might be able to use it as a makeshift drawing tablet, which would be fun. Anyway, hopefully I will be able to start posting more art now that I can clean it up better on a computer.

In other news, I'm working on a re-write of my fantasy novel. I think I've managed to get all the crappy first and second draft thingies out of the way, and this time around I hope to have a book that I can actually revise and edit without re-writing (again). Initially, it was slated to have a prologue, but I axed that idea since it was unnecessary and it will be more interesting for the reader to find out the background info of the story in a different way, with the reluctant help of an unreliable 1st person narrator. The beginning few paragraphs are still in third person, and kind of hint at some of what happened in the past. It then quickly transitions in a smooth and connected manner into 1st person, and from then on I think it's staying that way.

Hallo. I'm Skyleap and I'll be your server today.
Today's special is...dragon. It's what I usually draw, in addition to random stuff.

I'm hopelessly incompetent at crocheting. I'm probably the only person who can turn a simple crocheted shower soap bag into a mangled hat for a tiny stuffed animal. I'll put up a picture of it sometime.


So I just went into the living room and saw my mom watching NCIS, which was just starting. Here is what I see:
*dramatic music*
*poodle steps in slow motion into the gleam of a flashlight* *guy holding flashlight narrows eyes*
*opening theme music*

XD Thanks so much for watching me! For some reason I hadn't scoured the internet for your DA profile, but thank you for reminding me to watch you as well! (Because I'm a stalker like that XD)
AHHH your black & white dragon line-arts are AMAZING
Skyleap Featured By Owner May 8, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Hahaha I pulled your dA out of VisionCrow's connections, because I had also not scoured the internet.

And thank you! They amaze me as well, because nothing else I do comes anywhere close.

How are you Sky? :)
Skyleap Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
I'm fine, how are you?

Yesterday I was hopelessly tired, today I'm feeling surprisingly fine. I'm guessing the spring is making me crazy. :la:
Skyleap Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
It's supposed to snow for us on Monday (again), soooooooooo......

I really hope spring gets under way sometime soon.

So, there's one thing I've been thinking...

First I just realized what I had written in the comment below. I swear that if I would have seen your best works before, I would have never even imagined initially refusing you. The whole thing seems like a bad joke, and that even though I did say the Gallery seems empty, I should probably pay more attention in looking through the Galleries completely so that I won't make any poor decision.

But I was thinking, that since you have really helped me at Artist Bestiary, could you possibly help me out with dA-Fantasy-Animals as well? The activity was at its highest when I operated the old group fantasyart-fi, but my life got wrecked soon after we moved to dA-Fantasy-Animals, so the whole group transfer got stuck in the middle. I returned, but as the months have passed, none of the old Contributors are that active anymore. They are all busy - but I have talked with them, and understand that life steals our time so often.

Right now I got one more Contributor to help me out (you can see this in the Valentine's Exchange of the group), so I'm more optimistic, and there probably could be another Contributor, although he more expressed his desire to help at judging contest entries etc.

Still, my original big plans from 19-20 months ago still stand - I wanted the group originally to become a really good group, the kind of where it would be fun to be and to do something more than just sending arts and attending contest. Part of the reason why Artist Bestiary was found in the first place was when some of the members realized that a lot of the things we'd like to do can't be done exclusively on dA - including serious discussion about artistic careers or even projects and collaborations. Or actually, most importantly, a sense of a community. I'd like to try to found a place where people could form social relationships.

Yeh, that's about this. I'd like to hear your thoughts about this and what would you like to do. Thanks again for everything you have done to help me. :3

I'd basically forgotten what the original catalyst for this conversation was XD

That's awesome that you've set up a valentine's exchange! This will be the first one I've participated in!

I would love to help out woth dA-Fantasy-Animals as well! Do you have anything specific in mind?
