Random Favourites

deviation in storage by briannacherrygarcia

hey, got a minute?

help spread awareness

-It'll be over soon- by oomizuao

just a little box to try and spread awareness of sexual abuse and child abuse.
The deviation above is drawn by me, and the Artist's Comment contains some of my views on this subject, and how I want to help the victims the way I can - through art and through spreading awareness, letting them know someone cares.
Hopefully, more awareness on the subject, getting more people aware that these things actually happen to millions of children on a daily basis, will increase the chances of the victims getting help, and hopefully break the silence.


Elise Marie Syvertsen
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
My name is Elise. I'm 25 years old, and I have a passion for everything creative.

When I was approximately four years old, I dreamed of being an animator, making my own characters and stories come to life. Growing up, I figured making comics would be easier, especially considering the lack of animation schools in my country. I've been making stories for as long as I can remember, sometimes to help me cope with my own reality but mostly because I enjoyed the excitement of the journeys my stories could take me out on, even if I was just sitting in the classroom with my headphones on.

I don't have an education and consider myself self-taught. Drawing anthropomorphic characters is what you may call my "comfort zone", but I enjoy drawing a vast variety of things and I want to learn how to draw as many different things as possible, trying out different styles. Art-wise I'm very lazy, which is why I'm currently on a minor on-and-off break from deviantART, where I'm slowly expanding my artistic horizons in the persuit of trying to reach my current full potential, curious to see what I'd be capable of creating if I'd put a lot of effort in it for a change.

I am also writing stories, not just drawing them. My biggest project so far is one called "SPIKE", which is pretty much what 90% of my DA gallery consists of so far. It's a long lasting project that I'll doubt will ever really end, but as far as the writing of the novel goes I'm pretty close to completing it as of now.
I've posted 16 chapters of it (chapter 0 to 15) here in my deviantart gallery - which are actually the rought first drafts from quite a few years ago now, but even so they have received great reviews and feedback from my fans and readers and I've been told repeatedly how the story itself have found a special place in many people's hearts, which means more to me to hear than I can possibly begin to describe.

I am very thankful for all the love and support I have received, and am very grateful for all my fans, watchers and visitors. I sadly do not have the capacity to reply to every comment, and unfortunately I'm even dreadfully slow with replying to notes, but I read every comment and feedback I get, and I truly appreciate all of it.

I am no longer posting "SPIKE" chapters online, but my promise to my reader still stands:
When the story is finished, one way or another you will all get a chance to read it.

Even if I'll have to personally send you a copy of it, you will get the chance to read it as a whole one day. That's a promise, and quite frankly the least I can do to thank you all for the incredible support all this time :heart:

other useful info:

I do not take commissions.
I appreciate the steady interest people have shown me regarding this topic, but I have decided not to take any more commissions on deviantart, simply because I put far too much time and effort into it which delays the commissions - often with a delay of several years, unfortunately - which is not a good thing for neither the commissioner nor me.

You may share my art if you want, I appreciate the free advertising in fact and take it as a compliment when people share my art. So share all you want, and if you want to show some more support - just link back to my page or give me credit when you share my creations. That way, if people like what they see, they can find more of it here at my deviantART page :)

You may not - however - steal, re-color or alter my drawings.
I don't mind tracing as long as you credit me for the drawing you traced and link back to my page. Tracing my art and claiming it as your own is not ok. It's very rude in addition to showing a great lack of creativity on your part. Tracing other people's art for practice is alright in my opinion, we've all been there at one point, but I'll encourage you to make your own drawings from scratch and not copy the work of others.
In short: please share, just don't steal.

I draw online on Livestream every once in a blue moon, but I never schedule them. I announce my livestream sessions through journal entries here on deviantart.

I do not take request.
I will not draw anything for free unless I for some reason randomly feel like it, or if it is to bring joy to someone I appreciate or to people I know in person or are very dear to me.
I might accept art trades if I feel like it, but like with commissions they put a lot of self-inflicted pressure on me which may cause a very, very big delay. How fast I work depends on my mood, pretty much. Sad but true.

I like making new friends, but I'm terrible at staying in touch. Don't worry though, it's nothing personal, and it doesn't mean I've forgotten about any of you, I just such at keeping contact.
I don't mind talking with my fans and watchers or making friends with them, I'd actually prefer that way more than being one of those artists who ignores their fans. Just don't take it personal if I take forever to reply, for reasons previously mentioned.
I also want to help people, be someone they can talk to, ask for advice from or just if they want someone who'll listen. I want to help people, but that said - I can not solve anyone's problems. Also, I treat people like they treat me, I don't judge anyone, and I do not want to waste my time hating anyone, so I prefer being kind to people and treat everyone with mutual respect. I will not be taken advantage of though, so if you want to befriend me in order to get free art or in hopes of getting spoilers or unposted chapters of my novel, then don't bother contacting me. If you're in need of someone to talk to though, for whatever reason, even if it's just for a fun chat about similar interests, TV-shows or the most random things, don't hesitate to contact me!

If you have any music recommendations or anything you'd like to share with me, please do! If you want to show me something you've written, just be prepared that I might say no to the offer. The reason for this has nothing to do with you or your writing, but has actually more to do with how even though I love writing, I don't actually like reading... I only read when I on very rare occations feel like it, and then it's only for a brief period of time. This is why I've started reading countless books but hardly every finished any of them (I never loose track of where I was though, or get the plots mixed up, but it takes me forever to bother continuing, despite how much or how little I might love the book). I also will not give feedback on anyone's writing if I'm asked to do this, basically because I feel I am in no position to give critique on other people's writing. I don't have any good writing advice to give either, other than if you want to write, then write, and write the kind of book you would want to read, regardless of what other might say. If they don't like what you write, they can read something else or write their own story.

I can give feedback on art if asked, but I do not like giving critiques. If I do, I like giving constructive criticism, the kind of feedback that's encouraging and inspiring and not the other way around.

Also, if you want to make fan art of my creations , characters and whatnot, then you don't have to ask me for permission. Fan art is awesome, I love it, I take it as a big compliment and I love seeing my characters in other people's styles or just seeing how others express themselves through art in general. So if you wanna do fan art, do fan art! And please let me see it when you're done :aww: (also, don't be afraid to send me a reminder or two if it takes me too long to reply. I'm very forgetful and easily distracted, so me not replying does not mean I saw it and didn't like it, it most likely just means I haven't seen it yet, so no worries :) ).

Fun fact: I ramble and have a bad habit of writing "Wall of Text" replies to everything or rant for hours.
Like I've just done here in this Bio..... :XD:
So I'll shut up now.

Ask if there's anything else you need to know.

Hi everyone! I'm randomly going to go online on Livestream and draw equally random things now, for the first time in ages..! :)  I hope to see you there ^u^

Also, this is the first time I'm livestreaming from my current laptop, and I'm using dual screens (via HDMI), so I hope I can get the whole streaming thingy to work properly :)
I also hope my internet connection will stay stable, especially since I'll need it to run both livestream and spotify.. ^^;

To tag a quality deviant: And you’re it! 

Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how many followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love themChili Anime Emoji (Snuggy hug) [V2]
