ANTHROCON 2012 // Short Hiatus // Commissions
Hello everyone! It's that time of year again! I will have artwork for sale in the Anthrocon Artshow this year. Follow the link to see what I will have available!

Thanks for looking! // Spreading the word. <3

For the record, I will not physically be at the convention. Once again the sweet Synnabar will be agenting for me. I do intend to make an appearance at some point at anthrocon(or any convention for that matter). It just wasn't in the cards again this year: My significant other and I decided to buy our first house! Which leads me into my next point:

For the next 2 weeks or so I will be on a short hiatus. I am moving into my house, and of course I will be busy with the move and unpacking at the new place. However, I will be setting up my studio space asap so I can finish my remaining commissions(3)! Then I will take a new batch of commissions for the year! So if you are interested in commissioning me, this is a heads up :)

Thanks for reading and have a creative day,


Nabyn Sketchbook and Composition Question :B
I usually don't post to LJ with art stuff anymore(I tried a blogspot for that XD), but most of the people I have on here are artists and I'm hoping to get some feedback.

This is a concept I had floating in my mind since the beginning of winter. I just had to get him out. The general idea was to draw a white stag (Inspired by celtic mythology) in a winter setting. I often have visions of deer with bright orbs of light cradeled between their antlers. So that is what the circle currently represents. I think I would put him in a night setting, and perhaps name the peice "Northern Light", or "Northern Star".

This particular deer is based off of the prehistoric megaloceros, or "Irish Elk".

This piece is intended for fun, so the background will be very simple, not too many crazy details. Perhaps a wash of northern lights or a dark night sky with the Stag being the main focus.

What I do need help with is the composition. Which do you feek works best? Feel free to even suggest another that isnt listed here. I really don't mind that this image is very "formal" or "central" as a composition. I'm just rather undecided! X3 So I far I think I like numbers 3,4 and 5! 2 would have been cool but hiding his epic antlers makes me feel sad XD

Thanks for your input!

While im at it I guess its worth mentioning that I've started a Nabyn sketchbook. I'm just getting started and poking about. I hope this site really kicks off, I love it so far.

You can subscribe to my sketchbook here:

PS: Anyone else have a nabyn sketchbook? I'm on a subscribe spree XD

Thanks for looking!

Update :B
Hello everyone :)

I realize I haven't posted in alittle while here. I am still alive! Around the holidays I got very busy (like everybody else) and took a bit of a hiatus for myself to rejuvinate. I have at least 3 personal pieces started, plus a few commissions. Since I'm working on several things at once, and work another job outside of commissions, I didn't have the time to finish anything yet, haha!

But art is on the way. I haven't forgotten about my art blog either (, its just a matter of at least getting sketches in the "presentable" stage before posting. I'm actually a bit conflicted about this because I really love's ( sketchbook feature. Wonder if I should post to both, or just pick one?

I am nearly done my batch of commissions, so I do intend on taking more commissions within the next month or so (give or take). I am *slightly* augmenting my commission prices, particularily in the traditional art category. I discovered that some techniques, subject matter, etc take more effort than I charged for--so that will be adjusted but it's nothing dramatic.

Another (rather unexpected) event that recently occured is my significant other and I have decided we are ready to purchase our first home. This process will be very time consuming but I'm willing to work overtime on art to make sure I get enough done regardless of this. I still want to send art to the anthrocon artshow, etc.

Soo, thats whats up with me, mostly.
I hope to share more art with you soon, thank you for reading. :)

PS: I post frequently about art related things on my twitter!!/ArtofSekhmet
PPS: getting ready for work at my mother job now :C
What I would give to be able to paint all day , everyday :)))

This amuses me :D
In 2012, sekhmet resolves to...
Cut down to ten video games a day.
Go drawing three times a week.
Buy new big cats.
Lose ten mythical creatures by March.
Volunteer to spend time with animals.
Backup my narnia regularly.
Get your own New Year's Resolutions:

Hahaha, I WISH I had time for /that/ many video games. But I don't . And drawing only 3 times a week? Not enough! :PP

Holiday Wishlist
Step One

- Make a post (public, friends locked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ(( *--or DA). The post should contain your list of 5 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Harry/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.
- If you wish for real-life things(not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

Step Two

-Surf around your friends list (or friend’s friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:
- If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.
- You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people
out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not - it's your call.
- There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

A good samaritan found this cat today in a gutter by Clark Park, half dead. He is now at the Cat Doctor with a body temperature of 90 (normal is 102) and blood PCV of 8. The Cat Doctor housecat, Diamond, is currently donating blood to save his life. During the exam, the vet found that this cat has a microchip. When called, his "owners" reported that he was acting sick, so they put him outside. If this makes you as angry as it makes us, please channel your anger in one of two ways: visit our website at and make a donation to help us pay for his care, or share this post and encourage others to do so.
