H! Welcome to my profile =D
I'm 18 years old, graduated a year early from highschool (I was homeschooled), and I'm training to become a professional ballet dancer, dancing 6 days a week :heart:
When I'm not dancing, I enjoy drawing :) I've loved to draw since I was a little kid, but didn't take it very seriously until I joined dA. I do mostly traditional work, but the occasional digital or photography piece will pop up here and there. I am currently taking some art classes at the local community college and will be pursuing art on the side along with my future ballet career.
I hope you enjoy my gallery, and feel free to leave a comment, ask a question, or note me if you would like a commission. :meow:

Thanks for looking! :huggle:

I though I'd just share some of my recent favorites with everyone!

by :iconcfischer83: . This very beautiful graphite work inspired me to start my own drawing of Carey Mulligan! I love the creamy smooth shading and details in the headband.
Carey Mulligan - Daisy from The Great Gatsby by cfischer83

by :iconemilianocapotorto:  I'm intrigued by super dark atmosphere and her expression.
Iside-nocturnal-45x35-oil-on-canvas-19.05.2015 by EmilianoCapotorto

by :iconkandarval:  I love the boldness and the style of coloring in this piece!
Mountain by Kandarval

:iconhuanle: Has recently become one of my favorite artists! I really admire her style and the fantasy feel of her paintings.  All her subjects are beautiful and I love the detail she puts into her work.

Windchild (reimagined) by HuanLe

:iconddgrafix: I always love David's choice of subjects and his style of painting!

Overwhelmed by DDGrafix

:iconclementine-petrova: I love the mystery behind the subject.
The Rose by clementine-petrova

That's all for now! I will do another one soon featuring photography and other works :) :)

Fun tag I found while going through the thousands of deviations, journals, and messages I've accumulated throughout the summer. Sweat Drop revamp 

1- What's your current wallpaper. Describe it, or better : show us !

Wallpaper by SquirrelGirl15
This is the gorgeous Evgenia Obratzova and David Hallberg in Manon :) <3

(Next question is "What's you're favorite OC?" but I'm going to skip that since I don't really do OCs :| )

3- What's the most viewed / faved deviation in your gallery?

My most favorited is this:

A walk down Diagon Alley by SquirrelGirl15

However my most views/comments is on this:
My HAIR by SquirrelGirl15   ._. ._. ._. ._. ._. ._.  -___________-

4- In your humble opinion what's your most underrated deviation, the one that deserves more exposition?

Passion by SquirrelGirl15
Maybe this piece, since it received a lot less favorites than most of my other submissions during the same time.  Probably because it's black and white, probably because the scan turned out grainy and my shading and cross hatching look like shit :XD:  Probably because no one knows the subjects very well :shrug:

5- What's your current main project ?

A couple days ago I started a large (15"x11") drawing of Carey Mulligan as Daisy in the Great Gatsby Great Gatsby - Raise Glass  I'm really excited for it since it's larger than what I normal do and it also has lots of little fine details :) :)

6- What's the last deviation you put in your fav and why did you fav it?

No name by naeloj  by :iconnaeloj: I think the atmosphere and the brushstrokes are beautiful! :)

I tag :iconlady2: :iconforest-paix: :iconkenzielovesmusic21: :iconmynaophelia: and anyone who would like to do this! It's different than most tags which is why I like it :)
