Life Is The Foe
Life is the foe;
Death is the friend;
Hate is the good deed;
Love is the sin.
Hope is Hell;
And joy a sick vice;
Grief is healthy;
Despair is paradise.
Happiness is filth;
Dreams are atrocities vile;
Banality is the cleanliness;
Sorrow is wholesome in style.
Courage is damning;
Fear is redemption;
Comfort is a punishment;
From which pain brings exemption.
Dark is light;
And light is dark;
In my mutilated soul;
And my desecrated heart.
 Leather Purse by kikyobelladonna Henna Montage 01-12-14 by kikyobelladonna Composer's Sheet Music Gift Set by kikyobelladonna Memorial Tattoo 3 by kikyobelladonna Love Music Redux by kikyobelladonna

I've been a member of dA for 7 years. This site has seen me at my best and my worst and I've picked some pieces to illustrate my growth both as a person and as an artist. The first item is a poem I wrote in high school after the murder of my husband (yes, I was a teenage bride). It was a screed that reflected both my grief over his death and the hopelessness of being unable to escape my abusive family. The second image is the leather purse I made for my aunt. It represents a time when I was finally starting to expand as an artist and was the last time I tried to build bridges to my family. The third image is the henna art I did to celebrate a new year and a new sense of purpose after cleansing my life of the last of the negative people in my past. It took me nearly a decade but I had finally been able to break the cycle of abuse and addiction that plagued me for the majority of my life so far. The fourth picture is the first birthday gift I was ever able to give my father, whom I did not meet until I was 25. The fifth image is the base of a memorial tattoo for my late son Raziel Kane Darnall who was stillborn in November of 2010. The final image is a drawing of myself and Raziel's father Anthony as the OCs of a comic we were writing before his loss. I feel that it illustrates the skills I have refined and my return to digital illustration. This is my dA story and I thank you for reading it.

The Yu-gi-oh! Nursery
***PLEASE NOTE: I cannot recall where I got all the body bases I drew from so please shout yourself out if you see your bases. It is not my intention to rob anyone of credit for their hard work but I was given a large file of body bases by my art therapist and I don't know where they all came from.***

A cute commission for my best friend. Left to right: Plushie Red Eyes, Baby Jōnouchi, Baby Anzu, Little Kisara, Baby Blue Eyes, Mahado, Baby Seto, Plushie Obelisk, Mana, Plushie Ra, Baby Marik, Young Ishizu, Baby Yugi, Plushie Slifer. Hiroto and Bakura not included per my friend's preference.
