|Feel free to browse through my gallery folders! My "Featured" folder contains what I feel is my highest quality, but also non-controversial artwork. My other folders contain my complete works! I enjoy working with many different styles, subject matter, and mediums. I often deal with hard subjects in my stamps, journals, and comics, but I welcome respectful disagreements. Feel free to share my artwork on DA and other websites, but please credit me if you do so. Thank you!|
I'm a Christian artist who specializes in animals, fantasy artwork, and portraiture. My other studies include philosophy, hermeneutics, and environmental biology (emphasis in zoology.) I'm not perfect and I've made mistakes just like everyone else, but I try to put the past behind me. We can't change the bad things that have happened. Life stinks sometimes, so laugh at it! I aim to be a positive influence on others, but I won't deny the evil that exists in the world. I want to help spread love and joy.
I have a very tender heart, and I have and will stand up for the voiceless, be them human or animal. I have obsessive haters because of this, but haters gonna hate! I've been bullied verbally and have even received death threats from said bullies, although they deny it and try to shift the blame on me, all in typical bully fashion. If you've been bullied, I really sympathize with you. Words can hurt worse than anything, but don't give up! Always remember that there are people out there who care about you even if it looks like the entire world hates you. If you need someone to talk to, feel free to message me! You are not alone.
I also have a strong sense of justice and I value purity very highly. I think that's why I love unicorns so much, aside from the fact that they're happy, sparkly horses! They stand for many things I believe in: compassion on helpless creatures, sexual responsibility and restraint, and caring for the environment.
NLD: I have been professionally diagnosed with non-verbal learning disorder (NLD), which means that I have difficulty picking up on social cues, reading between the lines/picking up on subtext, etc. I speak very literally. It doesn't affect IQ or my ability to perceive reality. Sometimes I say things that may come across as angry or harsh when I don't mean them that way. I'm actually a very goofy, happy person by nature! Most of the time when someone gets offended by something I said, it's because they read something into it that I never said nor meant to say (remember, I speak literally). If I ever say something to you that hurts your feelings, please tell me. I acknowledge that I have difficulties in this area, and I don't want to hurt anyone.
ADOPTABLES / COMMISSIONS
My commissions are currently CLOSED. I'll reopen them hopefully in December and then again in May, but right now I'm very busy. I'm sorry!
I make dragon species adoptables that anyone is free to purchase, and I take requests for art. I currently accept both points and actual currency (PayPal.) Because I'm usually working on several different projects at once, please don't expect your request to be finished overnight. If you have a deadline you need it for, please let me know. Thanks!
I upload low-resolution, watermarked copies of my art onto dA, but as I own the full-size unmarked images, if you'd like a print of something, feel free to ask and I'll see what I can do!
I am pretty easy-going and I don't enjoy blocking people, but I will block people if
A) I feel threatened or unsafe by their messaging me (such as if they are stalking me, they have or are threatening to steal personal information, etc.)
B) they are exceeding hateful and/or are spewing childish insults (I don't mind opinions and respectful disagreements, but hatred is a different animal, and I want no association with it.)
C) they have exhibited willful ignorance and they are pushing that ignorance on me.
D) a debate has turned into an is-to-is-not type of fight / they're repeating themselves like a broken record without taking my position seriously / they're repeatedly strawmanning something I have said.
As you can probably tell, all these things have happened to me before. If you believe I have blocked you unjustly, you may *respectfully* contact me through a *neutral* third party. I understand that I frequently misunderstand people (it comes with having NLD,) but if you respect me, I'll respect you, even if we disagree about something. I do not block people for disagreeing with me. Anything less than a *respectful* attempt to mend a relationship is block evasion and is against DA etiquette policy.
However, as I believe in second chances, I generally unblock people after a period of time.

“Now for the matters you wrote about: “1 IT IS GOOD FOR A MAN NOT TO HAVE SEXUAL RELATIONS WITH A WOMAN. 2 But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband. 3 The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. 4 The wife does not have authority over her own body but yields it to her husband. In the same way, the husband does not have authority over his own body but yields it to his wife. 5 Do not deprive each other except perhaps by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. 6 I SAY THIS AS A CONCESSION, NOT AS A COMMAND.” (NIV)Interesting, huh? Almost every single person who brings up this Bible passage to preach sex sex sex leaves off the first and last verses. Paul is permitting couples to have sex. He is not commanding couples to have sex. He allows it. Sex is not the most important part of marriage, and thus it should never come before another person’s well-being. Love does not equal sex. Obviously Paul is not recommending complete abstinence within marriage, but also neither is he commanding that couples sex it up every night like many Christians believe. Thus, sex should NEVER be what glues your marriage together.
"If marriage were a pizza, sex is the dipping sauce you dip your leftover crust in."It cracked me up when she said this, but it explains the truth so well. There's nothing wrong with dipping sauce, but it's not meant to be the main point of a pizza, nor does it hold the pizza together. It's something optional and enjoyable on the side that you dip your leftover crust in. You can have a perfectly good, enjoyable, and functional pizza without dipping sauce. Now obviously if you really, really like dipping sauce, the allegory sort of breaks down, but I think you understand the point she was making.
When Live Action caught Planned Parenthood in 2011 attempting to aid and abet sex traffickers prostituting 14- and 15-year-old girls, Planned Parenthood told the media that it would retrain thousands of staff to identify and report child sex traffickers.
But a new Live Action investigation shows that Planned Parenthood’s claims were nothing but a bald-faced lie!
In fact, former Planned Parenthood manager Ramona Treviño recently revealed to me that the abortion giant instead used those sessions to train staff how to identify undercover journalists investigating its facilities! Click here to watch:Live Action also searched public records to check the abortion chain’s 2011 claim that it had reported the suspected child sex traffickers to authorities. The responses from law enforcement show that Planned Parenthood failed repeatedly to report the suspected crimes to local police departments, state police, or even child protective services.
