I am an art hobbyist from the Pacific Northwest of the U.S.. I joined the deviantART community to learn and grow in skill, and, of course, to admire all of the artwork shared on the site.

Mass Effect fan art makes up the bulk of my gallery here on deviantART, but I'm beginning to work on original projects (finally), starting with a series of sculpted parrot ornaments listed for sale in my etsy shop.

Heeeey how are you doing? :hug:

...I will admit I have been tempted to ask if maybe you might like to do a trade of some kind. :B I still need to think about whether I'd be able to do it though, hahaha

Hey! Sorry I haven't replied to any messages lately - DA hadn't been working properly for me for a couple weeks so I've been neglecting correspondence here.
First, I wanna say, feel free to note me any time you feel like you need to unload. I got your note, and it was pretty deep. I won't go into specifics here, but know I empathize with your experiences and think it's admirable that you're dealing with your past.
That aside~ I don't think I'd be able to do a trade any time soon simply because Halloween is coming up next month and I'm going to be making a paper mache horse mask for my daughter, which should be a time consuming and learn-as-you-go process. Hopefully it leads to a new hobby, though!

Thanks for the kind words :hug: Honestly I figured you were busy :) It's kinda that time of year after all XD XD

Anyway I'm not sure if I could really do a trade right now either, especially since it still feels like I'm trying to get my energy back for projects I am already committed to. XD Back during the time when I was doing several craft trades at once (among other things at the same time) I really, really ran myself ragged... and I think to this day I'm still paying the price for that, lol. 

I wish you the best of luck with your Halloween project :D

....Speaking of Halloween (and potential spooks), I was wondering if you could just wait a little of a video I made. It's part of my attempt at a Let's Play.

I'm not even asking you to watch the whole thing. Just... skip ahead to the 12:30 mark and watch for just a little bit, and you'll see me get genuinely spooked XD XD www.youtube.com/watch?v=yz2C7x…

Hey there, doing alright :) Been having a busy few days so now it's time to relax!
Thinking about doing some sculpting - my Garrus bust just sold (and I never, ever thought it would) so now I have the urge to sculpt another. I'm kinda bummed about it parting with it! I set the price highish thinking no one would ever buy it, but if the price was right I'd let it go, and then, surprise! It sold. It's a good motivator to get me sculpting a replacement though, so there's the silver lining :)

Woooow congrats on the sale :D Whatcha gonna make next?

I'll admit that I have been half-tempted to try making some MLP plushies or something, because I bet I could pull it off... I'm just not really sure if it's worth the effort. And if I wanted to sell one, well... my camera isn't the greatest quality so I'm not sure if I could entice people with good pictures, hahahah.

Thanks :) I think I'm going to shoot for ME2 Garrus, with the scarred up armor and the face bandage. I've also been thinking of making a Tali with a removable face mask, and have been looking into how to create a transparent purple visor.

You should totally go for making MLP plushies, they're so  popular I bet they'd sell well. If anything it'll give you something creative to do, and you could always borrow a camera (or even use a cell phone that takes good pictures) if you know someone who would lend one.
