Writing Tips - Myths You Probably Believe
Girls will read books about boys or girls, but boys will only read books about boys:
False. The gender of the protagonist in children's or young adult's literature does not matter. For example, in the 90's, Goosebumps was really popular. About half of them had first-person female protagonists. This more closely ties into subject matter. Something like The Princess Diaries--written for and by females will largely be enjoyed by an exclusively female audience. Something like The Golden Compass/The Northern Lights, which has a female protagonist but has subject matter like adventure, is very accessible to both genders. If you care about having an egalitarian audience, and you know how to write well—whether or not you use a female protagonist—you will most likely succeed.
You need to revise your novel/work like 10 or 20 times until it's perfect
Honestly if you're efficient, and you pay really close attention, you only need to do it like once. (Unless

Nicholas Sayre
Inspired by events from The Creature in the Case. Nick is here holding the dagger glowing with charter marks.

A commission by the lovely
So I've been reading the Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas (on the second book now) and I really like the character Rhysand...a little bit...ok a lot.
But yes, they're great books, a real high fantasy adventure with beauty and the beast themes (at least in the first book I felt).
Today I was feeling miserable. 
I go through very low points and I usually, eventually, dig my way out. 
I've called this piece hope because at the moment it's all that's keeping me from giving up art.
The messenger from the north on her way to the Old Kingdom.
Inspired by the character Ferin from the book Goldenhand by Garth Nix. 
I felt my previous illustration of Lirael was lacking so I re imagined it.

Inspired by Lirael and the upcoming book 'Goldenhand'. 

Lots of goodies in my shop!
