So after a really long time (this has probably always been there and I was too blind to notice) I finally figured out how to organize my gallery efficiently, and did so. While moving artwork around, said artwork decided to play shenanigans; specifically Asmodeus (of course). His was the only piece of artwork I was having issues with. I'm playing merry-go-round with the positions of artwork in my featured folder, and suddenly there's two copies of the big Asmodeus headshot artwork. Okay, I say to myself, and delete one of them. Return to the first page of my gallery and suddenly Asmodeus has appeared there; thinking it's another copy, I go and delete it. Check the back page. Apparently I deleted ALL the copies of that piece of artwork. Uh. Sorry to anyone who favorited or commented on it, it has vanished, I'm not sure where or if it will ever return. Fortunately I still have said piece of art, so a future reupload may be in the works.

Anyway, here's how my gallery is now organized (all alphabetical except for the last one because reasons):

--Auran Comic and Sketches (any and all concept art or pages related to the character and world of my planned Auran comic goes in here.)
--Demonic Stories (all of the writing related to my Seven Deadly Sins characterizations; they're vaguely satirical.)
--Dragons
--Fantasy (dragons aren't copied in to this folder, it's just for other fantasy creatures like griffins, phoenixes, etc.)
--Other Writing (short stories, etc.)
--Poetry
-------------------
Two folders that are more for me than anyone else:
--Squiby
--Crap Old Stuff

All miscellaneous photography, crafts, etc. are staying in the featured folder, but at the front I showcase recent work as well as some of my best pieces for your convenience. Currently in the process of playing merry-go-round with the other folders so that the best pieces are at the front of each folder. All done, everything's organized!

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.


RANDOMNESS:

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*

Pacing
Pacing
Pacing
The heady rush
Of imagination
Breathing hard
Words flying
Across the page
Too excited
Leap to my feet
Pacing
Pacing
Pacing
Some intangible thought
Almost in reach
Capture it
Write it down
Exhilaration
This is my
Imagination
An Idea Strikes
Wrote this a while ago, found it lurking in my sta.sh.

Auran Cover by Skyleap
Auran Cover
Please note that this does not mark the official start of a comic or anything. Just, in the event that I get everything figured out and worked up, this would be the cover for it. I am interested in doing the comic behind this story, I just don't really have the time to commit to it at the moment. I'm doing lots of concept art and story planning, though! Basic plot background below, for future reference (maybe).

The main character is a white dragon with odd black markings named Auran. He, like several other creatures in his world, plays host to some kind of spirit who was killed in a long-ago battle. Each spirit has a different reason for finding someone to serve as a host, whether to earn their way back to life or to finish some business and release the power they hold.

Auran, however, plays host to a dark spirit named Xia. She causes problems for Auran, mainly in the form of uncontrolled surges of magic.

Art, characters, and story © me.

Think I might do something for Halloween with Auran...
{Graduation poem for the Class of 2014}

In school there is a strange effect
It makes the time stretch on
To create one thousand lives
From only a few days long.

One fleeting moment can drag on
Forever through the years
In the first life, we made friends,
In the second, there were tears.

Those friends, they changed
As more lives flew.
Though the thirteenth life
Was not our best, it too

Was soon replaced
And gone.

And on this, our thousandth life,
We are faced by one sunset.
The path we'd walked in daylight
In darkness was not lit.

Application, procrastination,
Modification, exasperation.

Finally the moon
Shone down.

And on this, our thousandth life,
Even in the dream we found,
This moonlit path will vanish,
The alarm clock has to sound.

Ha! You see now!
There it goes!
English Language
Or apartment complex
Or office building
One-oh-one

Wherever our paths leads us
Add an extra number
Just one more
To this thousandth life
To make
One thousand and
One.
The Thousandth Life
My high school did a little Senior Assembly thing, where we take our class picture and have this little ceremony so our parents could get used to the idea of seeing us in cap and gown or whatever. There's a poem that goes on the back of the program for this assembly, and my English teacher this past year asked me if I would write it. I did (and got a lot of compliments on it, which made me feel good), and here it is for my dA, three months after graduation but whatever XD

For this poem, I really wanted certain parts to rhyme because they sounded so good, but I also wanted there to be free verse to increase the impact of the last two stanzas, so I kind of did a mixture.
