I don't think I've ever quite appreciated how useful having a Deviantart account can be until now.

A few days ago my laptop's hard drive got wrecked, and with it every last document I'd ever stored on it. Ironically I'd been asking about cheap back-up methods only a few weeks before, but in the way that I do pushed the task aside 'for later.' Now my chances of recovering old work lie solely on my old email habits.

And Deviantart ones, too.

I am so grateful now that I uploaded (and left!) so much of my old writing up in my gallery. I've found pieces I completely forgot about, but would have sorely missed, I'm sure, once I had noted their loss. Of course, it's far from everything, but what I've managed to easily recover thanks to this site has significantly lessened some of my anxiety and grief.

Luckily I have most all of my artwork in physical form. But if I ever want to quickly access it again, well, Deviantart is here.

So thanks, old friend.

You totally undersold yourself! I struggle with drawing female anatomy but you've got it down pat.

hey i hope u don't mind but i *might* be drawing a picture of nevermore?  i'm wanting to draw something but tired of colouring the two pictures i was, and i've always really loved her design and concept (i love that poem in general though, i have a dress from modcloth based on it!) and... well, nostalgia.  i'm not making any promises, but i'm totally feeling it, so if i go ahead and do it before you can respond, i hope you're OK with that love :heart:

haha YES totally fine!! :] Lemme know if you end up doing it! I'd love to see how it turned out. I remember way back when you drew a beauuutiful picture of her and I printed it out and carried it around in my binder throughout high school, I loved it so much. <3

o hai u still on?  do you have a current reference of her or is the most recent upload a good one (or any of the more recent uploads)?  i noticed you changed her a bit (i stilllll remember!)  also, is that angel guy still around?  i forgot his name. sa... something? something with an s, maybe?  by the way, i don't exactly remember her backstory, etc. (i'm going to assume she has one) or if you never told me.  mind?

and i'm flattered you took it with you throughout high school, haha.  that's the second time my work has been out in the real world far from here.  the other time was when a friend of mine was in class and apparently everyone was crowded around a computer saying how "good" something was, and she looked and it turned out to be a drawing of mine they were looking at!  these are the things i will always remember.

Ahhh I feel so bad for not responding sooner. I'm not used to checking dA regularly for messages anymore, it's been so looonggg

Probably the most recent upload is the best reference, but honestly you can draw her however you please. There was a period, mostly around high school, when I drew her constantly and so her design was relatively consistent, but as the years have gone by I've been drawing a lot more infrequently--so every time I do draw her, she looks a bit different anyway. 

Her backstory exists but it also kind of makes no sense in that wonderful freshman high school charactersss!!! kind of way?? In short I always envisioned her living on a different plane of existence or something, where she'd been basically isolated for ages before ye olde Seraphim (angel dude) and her sort-of-alter-ego Her came along. Also there were a bajillion ravens who sorta flocked her and made life miserable because hey, Poe. In my head, though, she's something of a calm, melancholic presence--a creature who's known a lot of grief and sorrow yet still maintains her quiet beauty and gentle wisdom. At this point it's that essence that matters more to me than her somewhat convoluted background. I have no idea if that helps you at all, though, so apologies if not xfd

:] I'm not surprised at all to hear your art gathered a crowd!
