Music Inspiration - Phoebe by daKisha
Music Inspiration - Phoebe
"Lovers" sung by Jackie Evancho

There was a field in my old town
Where we always played hand in hand
The wind was gently touching the grass
We were so young, so fearless

Then I dreamt over and over
Of you holding me tight under the stars
I made a promise to my dear lord
I will love you forever

Time has passed
So much has changed
But the field remains in my heart
Oh, where are you?
I need to tell you I still love you
So I reach out for you
You fly around me like butterfly

Your voice still echoes in my heart
You are my true love

There was a field in my old town
Where in spring all flowers blossomed wide
We were chasing butterflies
Hand in hand 'til close of day

Your voice still echoes in my heart

Link to song >…

This song reminds me a lot of Phoebe because she lost her love at a very young age. Some say he was lost at sea. Others say their love was forbidden because he was from the royal family or a dangerous rogue . It's all very romantic and mysterious. Phoebe swears she will never love again, but many doubt her because she's relatively young for an Ecathi. (87) Ali has brought a lot of happiness and joy into her life, helping to numb the pain and loss for the past 25 years. But Phoebe still pines for her love and goes to "their field" each year on the anniversary of his death/disappearance. (It's still debated amongst the other members of the pard if he's still alive or not.)

Marley Portrait _ 1
I haven't been home in a while, and I've been missing my precious girl. So I was inspired to practice my canine-drawing-skills and use her as a model.

Marley's a Golden Retriever in-case you were wondering.

Western Disney - Flustered by daKisha
Western Disney - Flustered
I wasn't able to post a Western Disney picture for you guys last week so I wanted to make up for it by working extra hard on this one. I'm really excited to hear what you think about it. I think it's my favorite image for the series so far. 

P.S. The horse is based off John Rolfe's horse in Pocahontas II.

"Pocahontas, what are you doing with my horse?"
"I won't let you go, John. You've promised to help the army track Kocoum down."
"He's innocent. Those men started it. Kocoum was just protecting--"
"No? What do you mean no?"
"I told the army no. I know Kocoum is innocent."
". . . Oh."
"Now, if you'll give me my horse, I'll go to town and get the brown sugar and molasses you said you need."

*This is part of my Western Disney series.

Mohinder - 8 by daKisha
Mohinder - 8
I've had this setting around on my computer for almost a year. I figured it was time to finish it. I didn't feel like re-doing it with my tablet so it has the original pen lines. The line art was made before I had my tablet.

    Rhodesna watched Ali gently swinging upside-down in the breeze as she hung from the old beech tree, reading a book. Most of the bark had been destroyed over the years from the wind and sea and its leaves had become threadbare. But growing from its roots was a new sapling. Her ear flicked back as she heard someone walking up behind her. 

    "Punctual as ever, Mohinder," the pard leader observed.

    The young Ecathi came up beside her, his gray coat standing out against the bright sand. He looked quizzically at Ali but did not comment on her unusual reading position.

    "You summoned me."

    "Yes, I have a mission for you, but you will have to decide for yourself if you want to take it on."

    "Does this somehow involve Alexandra? I would assume her presence here is not a coincidence."

    He doesn't miss a thing, Rhodesna thought. "No, it is not. You see, my ambassadors in Bisgard have told me the number of humans in Suria and the capital are growing. And I don't foresee that growth stopping anytime in the near future. They present a new opportunity for trade and commerce."
    "You wish to trade with the humans?"

    "Yes, but not here. In the capital. That's where Ali comes in. She's close to mastering her human form. Quite remarkable for someone her age. She's eager to learn about the human culture, and she has some trading skills from working with her cousin. I know I can trust her loyalty to the pard."

    Mohinder looked back over to Alexandra dangling from the tree. "But her methods are --"
    "--unorthodox. Yes, I know. But they work."

    "And what's my job?"

    "I know it was your greatest desire to become a royal guard in Bisgard," Rhodesna said gently. "I hate to see your talents wasted as a hunter for the pard. I'm giving you the opportunity to be Ali's bodyguard in Bisgard and my eyes and ears in the human world."

    "But, with all due respect, you know the reason why I failed the tests for the royal guard was because my human form was too weak. I'm not going to blend into the human world well with giant ears and a tail."

    "It may be years before Ali is ready to go to Bisgard. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to study the human culture with Ali as well as train with her in your human form. And then, if you're ready, you will go to Bisgard with her."

    Mohinder stood in silence, his wide eyes hopeful.

    "You don't have to give me an answer now. Just promise me you'll think about it."

    Mohinder bowed his head in respect. "Yes Rhodesna."

    "Ali can open up the doors to a future you thought was long ago closed to you. You only have to unlock it. She will make you smile again."

    "I smile," Mohinder said, slightly puzzled by Rhodesna's comment as she began to walk away.

    "Not as much as you used to Mohinder. Not as much as you used to."

If you read the whole thing, kudos to you. Sorry if there's any typos, spelling or grammar mistakes. I'm typing this at 1:00 in the morning and sleep is calling.

    As you may have noticed, I have been very inactive the past 3 months. There are several reasons, but they are all really good reasons.

    The main reason that I am so busy is that I am back at college, finishing my senior year. I am the editor of the school's literary magazine so it has been taking up a lot of my time, but I have gained so much experience from it. I even got the chance to illustrate a children's story that the magazine accepted for this year. I have also been recruited to create a logo for my county's school district, a logo that they will use on letterheads and polo t-shirts. I thinks it's great that I, an alumni, can give back to my school. So yeah, there have been lots of good reasons why I have been busy.

    I am taking a photography class this year so I will try posting a few photos. I'll try not to bomb you with photos. I won't post more than one a day.

To the people I owe requests, (who are listed below) I am sorry but I am not going to be able to do them. I just don't have the time for them. :iconhinatafox790: I will be able to finish your's but to the rest of you I will be sending some points your way to reimburse you all.
