|Instagram is good for sketches too|
So, growing up I did a lot of drawing, especially of The Lion King (clearly! Lol ). I don't know how or when exactly, but I ended up discovering 'The Lion King Fan Art Archive' and, though I never joined the community, I loved to go on to the site and view everyone's artwork. It was a real inspiration to see the skills on that site, and it kept me motivated to keep drawing, to keep practicing and improving with the hope that, one day, I’d be as good as some of the artists on there.
One of those artists was Not-Quite-Normal. Her animations were amazing, her characters were unique and fun, and her artwork (and that site in general) always remind me of my youth! Even now I sometimes find myself going back and watching her animations. This piece is dedicated to my favourite animation of hers; it features her character Lencho being visited by a friendly eagle, and it introduced me to a brilliant song. You can check out the original animation here: fanart.lionking.org/Artists/No…
Anyway, I hope you like it!

I'm 19, I love drawing and writing, but I'm find it hard to take the time to do it now-a-days! Lol! I tend to be inspired to draw when I have more important things to do I said I was a traditional artist rather than a digital artist because, the only thing digital is the colouring- I draw everything by hand and I paint by hand. I’ve never sold any paintings because I find it hard to give up any of my artwork, but I’m hoping in the future I could sell a few on the side as a hobby.
I love music, and how it can influence your emotions and actions through life. I’m in to almost anything really (RNB, nnnnot so much!) but I especially like heavy metal and country western music- big contrast, I know, but that’s how I roll. One minute I could be listening to ‘Slipknot’ or ‘In This moment’, the next I could be listening to Sara Evans or Tim McGraw, or even Glee…
I’m into Dragonology, I love dragons and, though I’m easily scared, I’m fascinated by ghost stories- certain members of my family have experienced actual encounters with spirits, no joke, but thankfully I can’t see them (think I’d wet myself if I ever saw something like that).
The last random, insignificant fact about me is that I don't swear. I have no problem with other people swearing, in fact I find it very funny, especially when used at the right moment, but I don't swear myself.
If you've anymore questions about me or my artwork, just send me a note and I'll get back to you asap
