I love to sculpt, origami, and occasionally make jewelry. In my spare time I play various board, card, and computer games. I also love reading SciFi!

I'm a chemist at heart, so I look for subtle differences in clay and paper to improving my technique. My sculpting interests vary, I tend to sculpt a few times a year and seem to change styles each time, but have come down to a detail-oriented form of laying out a sculpture project and slowly taking my time to perfect it. I started Pokemon back in 1999 when I first came across a Poliwhirl pokeball. It was most adorable! I took a break for a while to learn other subjects to sculpt. Lately I have been experimenting with origami and exploratory writing.

And I didn't thank you for the faves and the llama! Thank you for...well, those! :)

(I keep asking people what the llama's mean, but no-one actually tells me. All I know is they are big, stinky, spitty things! I need an education in DA matters!)

I think the llamas are some sort of dA in-joke, i haven't figured it out myself :XD:

Do you need to swap some kind of tokens to get them or something? Is there a kudos-based system?

To send a llama, go to someone's page and click the "give" menu at the top right, select llama, then it will verify your password, and voila~ llamas everywhere!

I've looked through your gallery, and there is so much of it that I like and can relate to that I have to put you on my watch list. All of your stuff is lovely, but some of it is just "wow"!
You have imagination and skills by the bucket-load. :)

Oh wow that really made my week! I've been having a rough time lately so I've been trying to write and fold origami to relieve my emotions.  Thank you soo much for the feedback and faves!  It means the world to me :heart:  I checked your gallery too and your works are amazing!

Thank you. I'm always disappointed with my own stuff, especially after seeing some of the really excellent work displayed on DA.
What I liked immediately about your gallery was the billions of little figures that would appeal to collectors and fans, and that's what kind of motivates me as I've always been a collector/maker. When you spot a fan-made item that's really well made you just kind of go "ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh." In a good way.
Sorry to hear you've had problems (if that's the right word.) Hope things are better now for you. Just pour it all into your artwork/writing, so at the end of the day there's something positive and new to look at.

Thank you sooo much!  That truly inspired me.  I will think of something new to sculpt, since it's been a few months.  Please don't be disappointed with your work! It is really good :D
