Hello, everyone! My art usually consists of both digital and traditional drawings, animations, literature, and sometimes home-photos--mainly of animals, fantasy creatures, anime, and occasional fan-art =3
Requests, collaborations and art-trades are ALWAYS open, so don't be shy to ask!
Also, I am willing to take any and every opportunity I can to become a better artist, so if I draw something wrong, please tell me how to fix it! Feedback is much appreciated.

Art Trades & Requests info: thedragoninthecenter.deviantar…

In general, I use MS Paint and/or GIMP for my digital art, GIMP to color my traditional art, and just pen(cil) and printer paper to draw my traditional art. GIMP is a legally-free program that you can download at

Thank you for your time, and I hope you enjoy what you find here!
For me, it's shading.  I always want to show what's behind what, and perspective and lining isn't enough to show that for me.  Sometimes the correct way to shade makes things blend in, for example (in a photograph of you) the nose not showing on your face because of the lighting.  I don't like that about real life so I change it in my art, to make every feature of my characters stand out, even if they shouldn't because of lighting or what have you. 

Other things I get wrong in my art is probably because I'm not the best artist out there, and I'm slowly improving upon those.  =3

So, what about you all?

Okay so it might take a while because my computer just broke with my old paint bucket and what's sad about that is because I was almost done with the pic. :(
