Request: M + E by branmuffinpower
Request: M + E
Yes, like a real artist, I have finally completed a request. A friend of mine asked me to make this for his girlfriend and I was very happy to do so. I was given two PPG style avatars of the couple and asked to making them "floating around or watching a sunset" and I came up with this. In the original work there is a Chinese idiom written in the sand, "有緣千里來相會" which apparently means that if two people are meant to be, 1000 miles won't separate them.


I had a lot of fun making this one. The biggest accomplishment for me is the background, because it is not an area that I usually excel at. I would really love to do more of this type of things in the future.

I have not been as active as I would like to be lately. Luckily, school is almost out for the summer and that means time to get back to art. As I have done in the past I've created a list of tentative projects and their current status. Since I haven't worked a lot lately, much of this will be the same as the last time I made a journal entry, but I hope that it will be updated more in the next few months.

I was brought to deviantART in about 2004/2005 when I frequently used to check if my favorite artists had updated with any new Teen Titans fanart. Shortly following that I began a similar obsession with Avatar the Last Airbender fanart. Everyday after school I would come home and check for updates. Even though I was drawing at the time, and even though I was admiring other deviantARTists, I never felt the compulsion to get an account until a few years later. I didn't realize it, but it was definitely fostering my love of art and art history.

Looking back on it, I maybe should have gotten one sooner. Even though what I was drawing was not particularly impressive, I think the act of sharing and getting feedback earlier down the road would have helped me improve more quickly than I did. I did not draw a whole lot in my college years because I took up the fine art of Lindy hop, a dance that predates World War II. Now that I'm home again and don't have the opportunity to dance much I have rekindled my love of the visual arts. It's a balance, you know?

I mostly do fanart, sadly. I do frequently write little gag strips about dancing, but most other stuff is fanart. I have A LOT of old Harry Potter, Avatar & Teen Titans sketches trapped in my old sketchbooks, but I admit since the shows/books all completed their run I do not feel as inspired by them lately. I developed a big love of Diablo: Lord of Destruction when I was about 14, but especially as of recently I have been feeling inspired by it.

I am pleasantly surprised that someone else read this story too. Today this fanfic the best of all fanfics and books on a Diablo theme, IMHO. I don't know English well, so I didn't read all first part and "Sands of Ages".(
Hope, you will make more pics on Diablo II and "LI" themes.)
And what is your character in game?) I play usually as Necromancer.)

I actually think I've already done that one lol. But I'll look back through them and see. I'm having writers block so I'm thinking about writing backstories for the chars while I think. I've got Scorpious' up in my gallery if you want to read it, I'm not going to put in on ff.net for a while until I decide whether or not it's going to be a one shot or a chapter of a book.

Hey, a thought occured to me. What character class is your favorite? Which one do you normally play? My guess would be you like necromancers and amazons ;)
