She died to free his soul
Ahhhh, sweet revenge for the people of both Orelus and Altair.

Yoyo is hung and nailed to a cross. She will die to free Lord Alexander from his torment.

Ah happy days are here again!
A Demonic Pieta
Another classical art inspired piece.

It is based off this version of the Pieta:…

This is where Amirani was freed from his misery from Mist's loved ones, and is given a second chance in the afterlife. She is preparing to give Amirani's corpse a proper burial to show respect to the fallen demon prince.
The Birth of Alk
Behold! Lord Heylel's most beloved and cherished creation!

This was inspired by Botticelli's version of "The Birth of Venus". Only this one has a supernatural twist.
A bust of Iseult
I swear, when it comes to Rage of Bahamut fanart, let alone 34 art of the game, there is hardly any pictures on Iseult.
What a pity, because I think she is such a gorgeously designed character and love the artwork of her.

I draw a lot of monster and non-human pics. I love monsters a lot, as well as gross out humor, fantasy and horror. Just warning you beforehand, though I do draw beautiful characters, but I can't guarantee my artwork will be easy on the eyes. Because IMHO, beautiful Barbies and Kens all the time gets boring and monotonous.

My favorite artists are Yoshitaka Amano, Brian Froud, Keita Amemiya, John Bauer, Marion Ponsoit, Hieronymus Bosch, David Teniers the Younger, Utamaro, Frank Frazetta, Hokusai, Hiroshige, Francisco Goya, Jan Mandijn, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Tomomi Kobayashi and Stephen Gammell. They all have inspired my art style in one way or another.

My favorite books to read are sci-fi, fantasy, horror and action/adventure stories.

I'm creating my own original universe called "The Realms of Alerfa". I'm still developing the realms and inhabitants as we speak. Stay tuned for more info on this series.
Okay, here I go. I am going to be blunt and honest with myself.....

Personally, I don't mind writing fan fiction and all, it's a fun way to kill time....

But however....

I think I like writing original fiction much more.

It seems very rewarding to create my own characters, my own worlds and my own story lines.
Sure, it is time consuming and takes a lot of research to write your own original fiction, but it is well worth it in the end.


I enjoy writing original fiction more, so I can also prove that I am no mere "one trick pony" when it comes to writing and storytelling.
I can write unique visions of my own, and share them with the world around me. I feel better about myself when it comes to writing original stories.
It feels good to know that people are interested in my original characters and original story lines. 

Hell, I even have fans of my own writing fan fiction based off my original series "The Realms of Alerfa". What does that tell you there.


Does it mean I'm giving up on writing fan fiction?

Well...the answer is....

No! No I am not giving up cold turkey on fan fiction. I'll still be writing and updating fanfics here and there.

But a lot of fanfics are going to take a backseat to my original stories and series. I want to do some more character building and world building before I go back to writing fan fiction.

I hope I'm not disappointing anyone, it's just how I feel about writing at this moment. 

All we can do is try our best and practice until we get better and better. Mental growth is such a wonderful thing, don't you think?

Okay, not gonna lie... I sort of looked at your playing mood at your journal....

And I just noticed your playing Demon's Crest....

Omg! That is seriously one of my favorite Capcom games I grew up with as a child!:heart: I thought me and my brother were the only ones who grew up with that beautiful underrated SNES game.:iconhappytearplz:

I love that game too.

I think one of the obvious reason why it flopped in the Western hemisphere is the fact that the game takes place in Hell and you play as a demon from Hell.

That's what I assumed.

Its a shame it doesn't get much fanart or recognition from most Capcom games :(

Actually, my brother told me it was for another reason. I sadly forgot why, but all I know is that it was released at the same time when another popular Capcom game was released. So, I guess it didn't sell well like the others did?

Ghouls and Goblins is good, but Demon's Crest was much more interesting to me when we were kids. Honestly, I really love the story the game had about a human realm and a demon realm. All those crests had different elements a demon would possess, the sprite artwork was amazingly detailed, their monster designs, and wow... Firebrand himself, I always wonder what his story was like aside from Ghouls and Goblins. The game was challenging no doubt, but it was very fun too.

And man, the OST was so beautiful. I always love the OST in the game and even around my teen years, I would always play the OST music over and over a lot. It's just the beautiful gothic tones and organ music, it just relaxes me.

Hey I have another question....

I may dislike problematic pairings, but I don't really hate the shippers that do. I mean as long as they're respectful about it and have valid reasons, then why shame people for shipping a pairing you hate? 

I see SJWs do this in fandoms a lot, people actually believe if someone supports a problematic pairing then it means they are pro abuse.:roll: Don't you find it stupid people do this shit in other people's fanart?

I mean, I don't like a lot of hero x villians pairings (unless done right) or incest pairings (like T-cest) it doesn't mean they support abuse or incest IRL.

Why is this hard for SJWs to chill out and move on?

I don't get it either.

Like I said, there are fetishes that I don't care for (feederism, extreme weight gain), but you don't see me mocking and bashing people who find those fetishes hot.
Live and let live I say.

I think they just want to find something for the sake of bitching :/

Exactly! Plus, I may not like a lot of characters fangirls and fanboys favorite the most... But I'm not going to mock them if they're mature about it. And just because they happen to like those characters, it doesn't always mean for shallow reasons.

As someone who recently took a psychology course, people REALLY need to understand psychology before they bitch about fetishes.

Hi I just want to say I just love your art so much. My sis moonlight told me about you and showed me your pics. They are so beautiful! Keep up the good work. 
Guei-Girl Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2016
