Hey guys! This is just a little announcement about me.

So I am an introvert (surprise,surprise!) but if you ever meet me in person you'll know that around my friends I act like an extrovert. Being on the internet for a while as an artist and a role player, I've noticed that I get comfortable with very few friends and I'm intimidated and overwhelmed by anyone else. My introversion was fine on here for a long time. I always sent replies, I said thank you to everyone who watched me, and I tried my best to reach out to everyone. But now that I've had this giant raise in watchers, views, comments, and favorites, I take one look at all of my notifications and feel completely overwhelmed.

You guys are all amazing and wonderful and I LOVE reading your comments especially, I want to thank you but I also want you to know how much I appreciate your attention! I'm sorry that I don't reply as often and I'm sad that I can't send those thank you messages anymore. Sometimes I feel like posting a popular picture is like sitting in an auditorium and I'm just little old me with a sketchbook, but then I have a massive wave of people looking over my shoulder, making comments and pointing. It's a little scary for me, and the thing with the internet is I can't close my sketchbook, it's continuously open. So I feel like everyone is staring at me all the time! So I'm just gonna keep going, I'll try to respond more, but just know if I don't, it doesn't mean I don't like what you have to say or that I'm not thankful, I am. Thank you so so much.

This (AND college, AND my two jobs, AND my family life) is why my commissions are closed and I DON'T do requests. I'm just a tiny, overwhelmed child, please take mercy on mePearl Emote 10 

You guys are wonderful!!! I love you!!!

So if you didn't already know, this past week my Humanized!Disney Animals went VIRAL!! Them eyebrows 

It has been crazy up in this place, I've had emails galore, and a giant influx of watchers! Hello new watchers!!!:wave: revamp 

I've been working very hard on some new animal to human sketches(mostly Disney but some NON-Disney, oooo!) and I was wondering if you guys would like to see works in progress and unfinished sketches or if you would rather just see the final image! Many of the sketches I have done may never see the internet because they aren't where I'd like them to be. But if you guys want me to post them and give me constructive criticism, just say the word and I'll post them!I am a dummy! 

Thank you all so so much for your support and I hope you continue to like my work!!Hug Love

1.) How long have you been on DeviantArt? 

8 very long years. I've been a Deviant since Jun 27, 2007. I got the account when I was 11. It was a sin, I know. But I didn't use it until I was 13 or 14, so there.

2.) What does your username mean? 

My sister made an account named verylyssa, so naturally I followed and did s0alaina, and my little sister is muchmckenna. Silly I know but that's all it is. The zero was just to spice things up a bit and make life harder.

3.) Describe yourself in three words. 

Princess. Loving. Goofball.

4.) Are you left or right handed? 

RIGHT!

5.) What was your first deviation? 

Something awful probably. The oldest stuff I didn't delete is in my Vampire Knight folder.

6.) What is your favorite type of art to create?

Pencil drawings, character designs, and fan art.

7.) If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

Ummmm.. My own? I'm still trying to figure out my style. (Or I'd just steal all of Glen Keane's talent)

8.) What was your first 
favorite?

AHAHAHA I have NO CLUE. I started organizing things years ago but then I stopped because I have too many favorites.

9.) What type of art do you tend to favorite the most?

The stuff I think is beautiful and cartoony and FAN ART.

10.) Who is your all-time 
favorite deviant artist?

I'd have to say Ravietta and The-Ez, they are so talented and so nice and wonderful and I love them so much.

11.) If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

All you friends out there! djeffers , The-Ez, Ravi, PenPal-Olive, Sharkielle, and toxic-pink-choco for example. The list could go on forever. Most of my close friends on here, I know in person actually.

12.) How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

All of you make me feel so special and I want to thank you for all your support!

13.) What are your preferred tools to create art?

PENCILS, photoshop/sai, colored pencils, and water colors.

14.) What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

School actually. It gets my brain juices flowing, AND MY DRAWING FOR ANIMATION CLASS THAT'S SOME MAGIC SHIZ THERE.

15.) What is your favorite DeviantArt memory? 

Uhm... The folder in my favorites called "My shrine to Zero and Vampire Knight". Man, that folder has 14 pages of pure fangirl lovin'. Ugh. I'm so ashamed.

 I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve, but may you have a Merry Christmas all the same!

Merry Christmas everyone! Welcome new watchers and hello to the new! It's been a crazy year but I'll save that stuff for my New Year's post ;) I was really happy, yesterday we didn't have any snow and this morning there was a thick layer of snow on the ground! A white christmas miracle!!

What were some of your Christmas traditions? I would love to hear from you guys! My sisters and I always share a bed and watch movies together on Christmas Eve until we fall asleep. Then in the morning we go out in age order and take turns opening presents. We eat breakfast at a family friend's house and man is there a lot to eat! Our friend has EIGHT boys! So we make around fifty pounds of bacon, and a whole lot of German pancakes. That's about as far as tradition goes! My older sister moved to Washington with her husband (AND my unborn niece!!) so it was just me and my little sister this year. We watched the final episode of Boys Over Flowers, our favorite K-drama. It was freakin awesome, and then we watched Muppet's Christmas Carol. I got some clothes, makeup, and TEA. Everything I could have asked for! We may also see Into the Woods, but we'll see.

    Kizzy was a very social girl in her family group. Always kind, cheerful, and very passionate. She traveled many places and seen many things.


    One day they travelled very close to an expansive forest called Evermore. The elders warned all the children to never go in the forest because witches and other dark things lurked between the trees. Kizzy heeded their warning and stayed at least ten feet from the edge of the forest. A fortnight later, they were still slowly making their way along the road, and when no one but Kizzy was looking, a small girl ran into the forest. Kizzy feared it may have been one of her sisters and ran after her. The twisted trees became more and more threatening but still the girl ran through them, her eyes searching. After running for what seemed like forever, Kizzy stopped running and stumbled to the ground to catch her breath. The little girl appeared before her and it was indeed Kizzy’s sister but Kizzy had never seen the girl before.

“You can see me.” The girl said in an eerily emotionless way.

“Who are you?” Kizzy asked, fighting her fear with courage.

The small girl ran away again, giggling. Kizzy ran again. Minutes dragged into hours and still she chased the girl, not knowing the way out and finding a strange peace in knowing she wasn't alone.

Abruptly the forest had changed. A tall ring of trees surrounded her in a perfect circle. The little girl crooned, “You can see me. You can see more. You can see much much more.” She held out a tiny hand for Kizzy to hold, and Kizzy couldn’t help but be entranced by her. And despite how her instinct screamed at her not to go anywhere near the strange little girl, she clasped her hand with a ferocious curiosity for this strange peace in her.

Suddenly, the girl’s edges began to flicker and her tiny hand gripped Kizzy as hard as a vice. “YOU SHALL SEE.” The girl’s voice had changed as steamy ribbons began to blaze from her spectral body. Kizzy began to feel a deep shredding pain in her eye as she stared bewildered into the girl’s now demonic eyes. She looked away and watched as her hand began to absorb the girl and much shrieking could be heard from both girls. When it was over, Kizzy lie  curled up on the frosty ground shaking. She could hear so many voices; see so many things.

“Too much. Too much. Too much. Too much. Too much.” She whispered.


EPILOGUE

When she had recovered she walked out of the strange circle of trees with her broken body, and walked a short distance before she was at the road again. A family was there but it was not hers, until an old woman cried out.

    “Kizzy! ” She hobbled over as fast as her stuppy legs could take her. She held Kizzy’s face and looked at her eyes. Kizzy could not look back into her eyes, not after what had happened.

    “Kizzy. You look the same as the day I lost you!” This forced Kizzy to look at the woman, anywhere but the eyes she pleaded with the voices. Her eyes accidently found the old woman’s. It was her younger sister.

    “Florica…Sister.Flor...Florica...”

“Kizzy, I haven’t seen you in over seventy years!”

    When I was little I was always drawing. And everyone always told me I was good at it, so I never stopped. When I was 8, my sister discovered an anime how to draw book and we became obsessed. I began drawing anime. Now, the thing with anime is...you’re trying to draw in everyone else’s style. If you’re going to draw something from Chris Hart’s book you want it to look like something from Chris Hart’s book. If you’re drawing something from Naruto you want it to look like something from Naruto. Get the picture?

    So when I was 14, I started branching off and saying “Heeeeey! I can draw cartoons now!!” So I did. I started studying How to Cartoon books, Disney, Dreamworks, and all sorts of other styles. I worked hard studying these styles.

    Now I am 18, I am inspired by Glen Keane, Claire Keane, Ravietta, and The-Ez, most of all. I love these styles. But are they mine? Absolutely not. You see, I’ve spent almost 10 years copying everyone elses’ style so much, that I haven’t found my own. That’s why my art is so diverse. I’ve been playing everyone elses’ over and over and over again and I’m good at it. I don’t have my own voice.

Now to turn this over to you...How did you find your style, your art, your voice?
