Luhan's song, 'Medals', is the most inspirational song I have heard to this day. I love it so much. The lyrics I've written on the piece read, 'When I need to stand alone on the faraway battlefield / My dreams become my weapon'.

I tried to go for a semi-realistic, semi-anime feel with this painting, leaving the colouring simplistic and the lineart quite stark. I hope it was effective! 
Kim Taeyeon
Because I love Taeyeon's look in her music video 'Rain' so much, i felt I just had to recreate it. She absolutely rocks short hair. Anyway, fangirling aside, let me know what you think! :)
My Life Is A Beauty
The beautiful Kim Taeyeon from her solo debut, 'I'. A fantastic song that I would really recommend!

I hope I've done her justice, but I would love to know what you guys think. 

Have a great day! :D
Megumi Shimizu from the wonderfully dark anime Shiki. As soon as I finished the anime I couldn't wait to get started on drawing one of the okiagari (creatures similar to vampires) as I'd never drawn or painted a horror villain before. I changed the style to semi-realism, which seems to be my favourite style, and it was a ton of fun to draw! Hope the bloodstains look appropriately bloody and stained (never done them before either). 

Thanks, have a great day! :D
Guess Who?
One character from each anime that I've seen (but not necessarily finished) thus far. Plus a Studio Ghibli character. There are some main characters and some more obscure side characters, so have fun guessing! :D

I actually completed this one a little while ago but was putting off uploading it till I had more finished pieces so I could give the impression that I was uploading regularly XD. The thing is, I tend to start a piece and then put it aside and start on another one while slowly working on the first one... it's so inefficient but for some reason I just can't help myself. Any one have any tips?
Hello, everyone! I'm sorry for all the sporadic updates, school is eating up a lot of my time. Thankfully I think that I'll be able to draw and paint a little more now that the workload has eased a bit. I'm currently just sketching anime and semi-realism, and if you would like to see it I'd be more than happy to post it up for you. :)

I really just wanted to ask if there were any styles in particular that you wanted to see from me, be it anime or realism or a style within that spectrum, since my muse has been a little dormant lately and I simply don't know what to draw. If you have any preferences, please let me know! I'd love to draw something properly, and I would if I knew what to do.

Much love,

Hey everyone! Just a few words about myself.
I'm an aspiring artist and I take every opportunity to practise - at least when I'm not doing homework, coursework, or something similar, since I'm in university right now which can eat up oh so much time. I've always been into fantasy and sci fi so I might be seen as a bit of a nerd ^_^ but it's such a wide open genre. When I was younger I used to make up all these fantasy characters with worlds for them to live in. I even used to get my siblings to play with me, and then my cousins!
I didn't just leave it there, though. I drew pictures out of my imagination, but I could never get what was in my mind on paper. So I began to write stories, but still always practised drawing. And that's where I am today.
If I'm not drawing, I'm writing or, most likely, learning languages. I'm studying French, Spanish and Italian in uni, and actually I'm also learning Arabic (Quranic Arabic for now) and Mandarin Chinese. As you can probably tell, languages are my all-consuming passion.

So that's a little bit about me. If you managed to get through all of this, hats off to you! :D
Much love, AnathelaRen x

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on my comic! It means a lot to me!
Reading your bio.. all I can say is YES! EXACTLY!  ME TOO ! My story started when I was about 14, and it never went away!! Yours is like that too, .it's inside and wants to come out!
It is as if  it is writing itself. This sounds a little crazy I know, but this is Deviant art. we are all  mad here. Have you had this experience?
AnathelaRen Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2015
Yeah, I know exactly what you mean! It's a little frustrating that I can't get my story out the way I want it yet, because I don't think my writing or drawing skills are good enough, but I'm sure with practise they'll improve. I agree, we're pretty crazy here! ;) Thanks for the favourite, by the way, and for taking the time to reply to all my comments! :D
