To Do List


Art Owed To Me

- Hollow and Jaeger - DS-AL-Z


What do you use to draw?

- I use a Wacom Bamboo Create (CTH - 670) drawing tablet and mainly Photoshop Elements 9.0 but sometimes Photoshop CS2 to draw digitally; I use a mechanical pencil and any scrap of paper I can get my hands on to draw traditionally.

What software(s) do you use for your speed paints?

- I use Debut Video Capture for recording my computer screen as I speed paint and I use Windows Live Movie Maker for speeding the video up and turning it into an actual speed paint.

Can I reference/use your art?

- Simple answer, no. I don't usually allow anyone to reuse or reference my art unless I give you my permission which clearly states otherwise.

When did you start drawing and how long have you been drawing for?

- I started drawing back in 2006-2007 and I've been drawing for about 7+ years; I've been doing digital art for a 3+ years now.

Do you take requests?

- I usually don't take requests although I might take 1-2 if and when I livestream through Join Me.

Can I draw gift art for you?

- Sure, knock your socks off; go wild with it. I can't tell you how much I love getting gift art. It makes my day when you guys do that sort of thing for me, I can tell you that.

Donate to my donation pool for :points: commissions or if you just feel like it, either one's fine by me...

You must be logged in to donate.


Sorry I haven't been posting anything or really being all that active here on dA lately, I've just been so busy and distracted by stress and as a result of both, my motivation to even get one simple art piece done has gone down a considerable amount...

I'll get back into the swing of things art wise hopefully as soon as time permits me to do so and as soon as I muster up enough motivation to actually pick up my drawing tablet pen to draw...

I'm haven't taken a break or hiatus or anything, I've just had my mind on other things as of late and I've been slacking off with art here as a result of that..

I plan to hopefully get at least one headshot drawing done this weekend if I can...

Oh, if you want to see sketches and art pieces before I post them here on dA, follow me on Instagram @ MorningAfterWolf...
I've got GREAT news!

I will most likely now be able to do more speed paints/timelapse videos due to the fact I received, the highlight out of several Christmas presents, a 1 terabyte external hard drive for my computer!

I'll try to install the hard drive onto it and get to work on speed paints/timelapses as soon as possible!

Happy holidays and Merry Christmas, everyone!
I'm re-opening one slot for my :points: commissions... If you are interested in commissioning me, please refer to either my Commission Info 2015 journal or my Commission widget on the left side of my page!

When paying for your Commission, please pay through my Donation Pool! Thank you! :squee:

1. I'm currently 18 years old and a Senior in high school.
2.) I've had Photoshop since December of 2011 (I got my first drawing tablet back then for Christmas...) but I didn't start using Photoshop until about either January or February of 2012.
3.) I go to a Votech in the morning for Graphic Design and then go to my high school in the afternoon after Votech (Votech is basically a technical school.)
4.) I wasn't born in the United States of America, I was born somewhere in Europe (I won't say where, only a few of my online and offline friends know where and I kind of want it to stay that way.
5.) My dad passed in September of 2013 suddenly, that was probably the worst, darkest thing that ever happened to me but I somehow managed and still do manage to cope with it and move forward in life.

8.) I seem to have more offline male friends than offline female friends (I don't know why but that's the case..)

What fandom do most of them belong to?: They're all wolves/canines.
Which one is your favorite?: Oh gosh, this is a challenging question, each of my OCs have a different meaning to me and represent different things that also have different meanings to me so I can't exactly answer this question.

In memory of my dad who passed on September 16th, 2013 : Hansi

“I try to live more in the right now than anything else, I’m enjoying life. I don’t take anything for granted anymore..” - Kevin Carlberg

I'm a teenage graphic artist from Pennsylvania who tends to be wary of others on occasion.. I like to spend my time doing what I do best, writing, drawing, and singing, some say I'm really good with all three but that remains to be seen by me..

I love anything with logic and I'm not sure how to explain this next one; here it goes, I also love to figure people out without letting them figure me out... <- I'll let you decide for yourself what the meaning of that is..

I'm fiercely optimistic, I've found some people become intimidated by it on occasion... Regardless, they describe me as a very friendly, intellectual person with an open heart and kind soul, (except when I get mad; that happens, I'm sure I could give the Devil himself a run for his money, but I'd prefer we not go into detail about that here...)

After battling a very mild case of depression for two years, I decided to crack down on it and rid myself of it in January of 2013.. I was temporarily on hiatus from dA due to my fight with the little demon, but after officially returning a month or so later, here I am..
