Hello, my name is Axel.
I'm a traditional artist. For colored work I use mainly prismacolor colored pencil, but I also use markers and pastel. While I'm better at animals, I'm working at getting better at humans. I like to draw anything really.

Apart from art, I have a huge interest in animals. My favorites are ravens, but I also really love roosters, okapis, bats and capybaras.

Feel free to ask me any questions you may have. I answer all comments. Thank you if you fav or watch my work!

Random title since nothing else was coming to me. It's time for an update about what exactly has happened to me this past month and a half. And yes, this is a positive journal. c:

Last month, exactly one year since my lowest moment, I moved from Montana to Alaska to be with my best friend (and asexual life partner) :iconburythemaid: And while I did put a lot of faith in it all, I was very scared after nearly losing my life the first time I moved out. I didn't even want to write a journal about it, because I was so freaked out that something would happen and completely shatter what was left of my will to live.

When I arrived on the plane, I looked for bury immediately. and of course couldn't find her since she chose the exact moment I landed to be in the bathroom! Good thing I know her so well, so I was pretty sure that's where she was. XD Anyway, the next day (or rather the same day since I came in at midnight) we went to petco and acquired the mice we'd been planning to get for so long, Carlos and Cecil. And I just laid there, surrounded by two mice, a chinchilla, a cat, and my best friend, and it all felt so unreal.

As time went by, I was still incredibly paranoid that I would somehow do something to end this without warning. I had a very bad panic attack, and several crying fits after bury told me off for something, so sure that I would wake up and everything would be over. But it hasn't, and I really don't think it will. I am relearning to trust, and that there are people who genuinely care about you. It's something I haven't been able to believe for a long time.

And some days it still feels so unreal that I'm actually here, and not just here but happy.

I put on a brave face and got a job in the kitchen at the university, which I haven't started yet since the school year doesn't start til next week.

I now have two more mice, Kevin and Dana. Yes, all these mice are girls named after Night Vale characters.

Bury has plans to buy a ps4 soon, and I have plans to snatch it (when she's not using it of course).

Star Wars 7 comes out next year, need I say more?

All of this, I feel, is progress. While I still have my down days, overall I feel very blessed.

Also, :iconburythemaid: is a total nerd! She has gotten me into too many soul destroying series (such as Attack on Titan and Hannibal) and sits there laughing as she watches them destroy me. So rude. Good thing I got her back by informing her about Silent Hills while she was at work!

Hello there, Axel! I just
dropped by to give a piece of my
mind regarding your commissions,
if you don't mind.

You are underpricing your amazing
art! ;o;
Your sketches, especially, are at an
extremely low price, and I fear that
you should be getting much more for
all that work! After all, it's only 30 cents,
in USD!

Just an opinion, haha, but I do really
think you're waaaaaaay better than
any other artist who could rightfully
charge 30 points a sketch!
Heck, I've seen users not half as
good as you sell sketches for twice the price!

OMG ;; thank you!
And I know, but it's unfortunate that if I priced them what they are probably worth, no one would buy them. ):

Ahh, that really sucks! ;n;
Could you try and do a poll or maybe
a YCH auction to test that theory out?

Personally I feel that I would purchase
a sketch from you even if the price was
higher, and I can be a frugal person
at times! nwn
