All my newest submissions!


This week I went in for a physical and a check-up on my wrists. Health-wise I'm doing well enough. I do need to get a blood test but so far, my doctor's pretty pleased with my well-being. My wrists, however, have gotten a little worse this week. My weakness isn't improving and the pain comes back in waves. Some days I can get by just fine but some days I'm taking anti-inflammatory medication as often as the bottle will allow me to. I drop things far too often, I fumble things, and over the last week just eating with a fork has been something of a struggle. My doctor is not happy with how my last nerve conductivity test was conducted since only one tendon in one hand was tested. He's going to refer me to another specialist for a more in-depth test and a second opinion. He's assured me that shot or surgery, we'll try to find a solution. I'm really hoping that it all gets squared away soon. My boss is concerned that I can't work long-term because of how often I'm dropping things or the difficulties he's noticed I have on the floor. I've assured him that I can work just as hard as anyone else if given the chance so we'll see how it goes. I refuse to sit around feeling sorry for myself if I am still able to work an honest job that I frankly am in love with.

Art-wise I'm starting to really push myself to at least sketch something once a day. I'm going back to my roots of traditional work and I think it's really helping me to get over some road blocks in my artwork that I've been facing lately. I'm hoping to get one completed CG work done a month and completing a sketch set every week to show off on DA.

Other than those things, not much is going on in my life. Thank you again for all your thoughts, prayers, and support!

Just because...

:bulletwhite:"Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: "What! You too? I thought I was the only one."

C.S. Lewis

:bulletwhite:"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."

C.S. Lewis

:bulletwhite:"The Christian does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us."

C.S. Lewis

:bulletwhite: "If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world."

C.S. Lewis


"We are not necessarily doubting that God will do the best for us; we are wondering how painful the best will turn out to be."

C.S. Lewis

:bulletwhite: "What draws people to be friends is that they see the same truth. They share it."

C.S. Lewis

Commissions & Trades I'm waiting on: 

Some of these are pretty recent but there are a few that are slowly gathering dust. I'm leaving them up as a reminder to myself (and hopefully the other artists involved). 

At this point...these sit here as "Buyer Bewares": 

:bulletblue: Two character full body lineart from :iconhoneyroastedferrets: - My end of the trade is complete as of September 14, 2009

:bulletblue: Five Chibis from :iconmalisjuju: - Paid on December 29,2012 | 1/5 received |

Latest ParaChiMar Artwork:

 Thalion Koi by Saimain

Seriously! How beautiful is this?! I cannot thank :iconsaimain: enough for giving Thalion some life this year. He's one of my oldest, most dear characters and she's captured him perfectly. Thank you so much! ;A; He's stunning!

Legacy of Para group on DA!

:iconbluekillerdonkey: and myself decided it's about time we start up a group for ParaChiMar: The Legacy of Para. For those interested this group is pretty much just a good place to dump all of our LoP artwork, trades, commissions, and fanart into. I've also made a small stamp collection to celebrate. Check us out. :3
