As of right now I'm 31 years old, I have a beautiful wife and am something of a contradiction to stereotypes. I'm very much into anime and comic books so you could definitely classify me a geek yet I also love hitting the gym and am very into bodybuilding. Recently (October 2013) I competed in my first two competitions. I dieted for nearly 3 1/2 months to get ready for them and in all that time I lost almost 60 pounds. Sadly, along with all that excess body fat went some muscle. That loss hurt me a bit and I ended up in last place for both competitions but thats not a problem. Now that I've lost that weight I don't have to worry about so much dieting for next year's competitions! In the meanwhile I have obtained my personal trainer certification and am working toward the competition of my bachelor's degree in physical education. In my downtime though I'm very happy drawing and writing my own creations.

Current Residence: Anchorage, AK

Remembering Where You Came From...

     Hello everyone, I must confess that I'm not the most consistent when it comes to posting journals but I feel that the time has come to post yet another to update those who are following me and may decide to in the future. When I first started my account on DeviantART, I was definitely raw in my artwork and had a great deal of growth before me. Now, some six years later, I feel I've reached a whole new level in my capabilities with my latest drawings of Harley Quinn, Hawkgirl and most recently, the Green Lantern John Stewart. I will continue this trend of comic book and animation inspired works and see what comes of me in the future but with all that said, there is another reason for this post... 

         Something I have always believed in is that when able, you should always aim to give back to your community or those who have helped you get where you are. Sadly, this is a problem for many of us because we most often find ourselves in situations that recall our time or assets back into need for ourselves but when the ability does come, it is something to be remembered. A fellow Deviant Artist has done such a thing and is now holding a raffle for her fellow Deviants. Check it out, sign up and make sure to give her a thank you. When all is said and done, regardless of whether you win, remember to give back. One day your karma will undoubtedly reward you.

Are you open for requests?
ConnerKonEl Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Possibly. It all depends on what your timeline and request are.
Magani1996 Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
Well in regards to timeline I am flexible. However long you think you need to draw the idea is what you'll have. Art is a process that can't be rushed and must come to the artist at his/her own pace. As for the request I really like your work with Disney so I was hoping for a triple crossover for a fic idea I have been musing on.

Idea: In Belle's room of Beast's Castle. Rapunzel sitting on the bed with a portion of her hair laying at her side. Baby Tarzan is lying on top of her hair from the waist up giggling at Rapunzel as she distracts him. Meanwhile Belle in her usual outfit is changing Tarzan's diaper.

Im afraid that may be a little much for me. Disney has always been a troublesome subject for me just because of the eyes and face. I don't know what it is exactly but it proves very complicated. Even over a long period I don't know if I could stay on track with it. Sorry.

Its from a guy named Sega man 4 and its based off of his fanfic no need for jerren and ami. And its not a spelling error. I asked if I could use it and he said yes.

So what are you actually asking me to draw? Obviously you want something with Sailor Mercury and maybe this OC but I don't fully understand beyond that. Do you want me to re-draw the linked image?
