Newest Deviations


Today I am presenting you all, my fellow deviants, with an answer to a question that has been around since almost the beginning of time itself:
How the hell do you pronounce Aorio?

Fear not, fellow citizens. I come here today with answers. All of my friends scratching their heads at this odd combination of letters, Aorio -- perhaps pronouncing it "Oreo" or most commonly "a-OH-reo" -- I am here to clarify.

Drumroll, please...

It's "AIR-eo." Aireo. Aorio. The first "o" is kind of silent, you see.

Carry on with your day, my friends.

Also, I hope you all have been well! I'm very excited to be back on dA where I belong. It's been a solid year and a half since I last plugged in my tablet pen and opened up Flash and SAI and just drew. An amazing feeling for sure!

Please enjoy what is probably the first thing I've drawn start-to-finish in a solid year and a half -- Firesong, who belongs to MegiInkdragon.
Please also enjoy my super cheap slapped-on half-assed ten-minute background very loosely referenced from: (speed paint) by Anfedart
Can't say this is a gift since it was commissioned a long time ago. Here it is nonetheless!

Character belongs to MegiInkdragon. Paint Tool SAI, ~4 hours

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

How old are you/where do you live/gender/occupation?
I am 19, I live in Colorado, I am female, I am currently a full-time cake decorator at a small local bakery.

I don't have any money. Will you do an art trade/point commission/collab instead?
No, sorry! I'm very busy at the moment. If I want to do an art trade I will note you first.

What's the status of my commission?
I try to keep my status & to-do list as up-to-date as possible, so check there first.

What programs do you use?
Adobe Flash CS6 (lineart, cell shading) & Paint Tool SAI (soft/watercolour shading) and occasionally Photoshop CS6.

Awesome! I had paper sketches of your originals which I'll probably upload and send to you just 'cause I have 'em. But yep, those look good.
