Creatures 007 by Zanikal
Creatures 007
more sketchbook critters! the one on the top right is inspired by (i think?) a resident evil monster, and the one on the bottom right i drew on the train (rather shaky, but it was fun anyway). 
  • Mood: Affection
I realize that I don't really have a lot of communication with you guys, so I guess I just wanted to say thank you so much for following my work, especially those of you who have been following me since the beginning - you all have really inspired me to keep doing what I do and I value each and every one of you. Just one nice comment is enough to fuel my work for days (no joke)! That being said, I don't feel like I know many of you and I would really like to: if you have the time, please leave a little intro for yourself in the comments, and/or what you would like to see me post more of or new things to try (I mean, besides more content in general haha). 
Here's my background, for those of you who don't know me well: 
You might know me as Zanikal, but my friends and professors call me Disme (pronounced Dime): Zanikal is actually one of my character's names, and I picked it as my username literally because it was available, and at the time Zanikal was one of the two main characters in the book I am writing. 
I'm a 21-year old sculpture major in my senior year, but my background is almost entirely in illustration - I figured that I had more to learn in sculptural materials than in illustration, so I put my money towards that and I don't regret a thing (but we'll see about my wallet)! I've been drawing since I was 2 years old and never stopped; mostly I drew during lunch, social gatherings, and class, but nowadays I only do it during class or sometimes by myself. My mom was an art teacher and all four of my sisters were artistically inclined, so you can see where I got the idea. I enjoy a wide range of materials to work with though, primarily pencil, photoshop, yarn, cast metal, super sculpey, wire, and wood although I've dabbled with practically everything. Cameras put me off (and are way out of my price capabilities), hence the general lack of evidence for some of this work. 
But besides art, I very much enjoy video games (or watching people play video games, when I can't afford them), reading (psychology, fantasy for not-children, the old classics, and cultural/social studies), writing (as I may someday reveal on this site, but I'm a little self-conscious about showing incoherent bits of it), gardening (when I have the time), and cleaning animal bones for my personal collection (which also includes oddities of all sorts). I also love dreaming - literally. I have, hands-down the strangest dreams ever and I write them all down for future reference. I think I'd like to do a series based just on my dream-scenes sometime. ANYWAY I'm rambling: enough about me, what about you??

Fairly eccentric, perfectionist, very unopinionated, and very curious. Contrary to popular belief, rather friendly.
