Hi! My name is Ania.
I'm working on becoming a professional artist!
I'm not going to art school, but figuring things out on my own. One of my dreams is to write a graphic novel. I also am interested in studying animation. For more on my goals, feel free to look at my journal.

[Closed] Contest/Challenge! Draw your OCThe contest is now closed!
Thank you all very much for your amazing entries <3
We will do our best to give you the results as soon as possible, but it will take a bit of time as there are 134 entries ^^
Please make sure your entry has been added to the contest folder:
As described clearly in the rules, your entry must be a new deviation, made with the challenge in mind! Asside from the fact that entering with an exhisting deviation is quite unfair towards your fellow contestants who worked very hard on creating a new piece of art, what is the point of joining a challenge if you are going to submit a drawing you didn't actually make with that challenge
Character name: Saphira
Family members and/or significant others: Mom and dad. No siblings. Engaged to Aelar, who then betrays her. (He is from another royal family, related to her cousin on the mom's side. Aelar's older brother rules the kindom of Arellion.) Her best friend is of not noble lineage, but is employed as her bodyguard during her teen years (the daughter of her original childhood bodyguard). She has a slew of superficial royal friends, but they never have deep conversations and she never feels like she belongs in their world. They think she is weird, but pretend to like her because of her status. Her kingdom is the most important one in the realm.
Personality traits: Co-dependent, naive. Lived a sheltered life as a single child with overprotective parents. She is very nervous and naturally anxious, but puts up an act to hide her anxiety because she is supposed to be a confident princess. She is very fake and doesn't know how to express her feelings, but rather pushes herself to express what she is 'supposed' to feel even if it isn't genuine. She barely lets herself have a personality and is very passive, until she has to fake being a commoner to escape death.
Character history (where is he/she from?): The Palace of Laringrove. Laringrove is a diverse kingdom, one of the biggest in the realm. It connects other kingdoms to each other and is the center for trade because of its perfect location. You can find all kinds of creatures there too, and many of them travel from faraway places in order to take advantage of the lucrative commerce.
Highest level of education: Royal Homeschooling to the level of becoming queen. In her youth, she spent one month of elementary school with Aelar who later became her fiancee. She saw him on and off while growing up. His interest in her was fake, but she didn't see or know it.
Physical traits: Elfy ears. Mostly human appearance. Reddish blonde, amber eyes.
Biggest motivator: Begins with just preserving her life. Later on in the story she desires to be stronger so she can get revenge and take back the kingdom and rule it on her own terms (not the way her parents want, and also undoing the damage Aelar does with his various institutions as King).
Biggest fear: Her assassin who continues pursuing her even after she has escaped.
Things he/she likes: Fruit. Especially exotic fruits. Trying new things. Her royal jewelry. Fluffy animals. The trade center and all the wonders you can find there (after her escape). Shopping.
Things he/she dislikes: Snakes or snakelike creatures. Bitteryots (a delicacy that doesn't taste that great, but every royal likes it or pretends to like it. It is expensive). Betrayal and fakeness. Loneliness.
I will keep updating on my characters and story. Stay tuned!
