Officially halfway through the Fae paintings for the 2016 Zodiac Calendar!  Thank you everyone who has taken the time to comment, follow, and fave... your support means the world to me! <3
Cancer - 2016 Fae Zodiac Calendar by Enchantress-LeLe
Cancer - 2016 Fae Zodiac Calendar
Finally Cancer is finished! Cancer is represented by the Crab. They are a water sign and their colors are Sea Green and Violet. Some words that describe a Cancer are: Emotional, sensitive, group and family orientated, seeks security, patient.  This was a challenge to keep it from appearing too creepy and awkward with the character half in the shell.  I hope I was successful @.@

Please check out my other signs as well!

First I would like to send out a huge thank you to :iconilikecommas: for the gift of DA subscription.  You are amazing, THANK YOU!!! <3


I had a talk with a great artist friend of mine a while ago.  We were sharing our dreams and I was telling him how much I wanted to work as a professional freelance artist in the gaming and cover illustration field.  I always thought that that was the ultimate goal.  But after I was finished gushing over what I thought I wanted, he asked me a very simple question.  He asked me something you would think I would have thought of but I hadn't really entertained because I was either blindly following that one goal or I thought it was too crazy an idea to ever be a reality for me, and that was "Wouldn't you rather just do the art that YOU want to do for a living?".  I kind of shrugged it off at the time because it didn't seem realistic, but the more I think on it the more it seems pretty obvious that that would be the optimal goal and maybe just maybe it was something I could dream of as well.  I see many artists pursuing this avenue recently.  Amazing supporters through platforms like Patreon and Kickstarters are able to help make the dreams of those artists a reality.  Don't get me wrong, I would still adore working as a professional in the industry, but it is not the only goal anymore.  I want to make a living doing art that I want.  I think that art that you are passionate about, that came from you 100% is something you will put your heart and soul in.  It will be the best you create because you love it.  I don't think I am ready yet for Patreon (I still need some more artistic growth before I believe anyone would want a tutorial from me), but I do want to do a project that I can focus on painting what I love, and hopefully it will resonate with others and they will want to share in it as well ^.^

So I am now starting the largest project I have ever taken on, and I am my own art director.  I will be painting a 12 month calendar of Faries based on the Zodiac.  Because I want to.  I would be delighted if you would come on this journey with me.  I will be posting often on my Blog with the Wips and thoughts on the pieces, and I would be more than happy to hear your thoughts as I work.  I am aiming to have them all done and ready by the end of the summer, and to have a September Kickstarter campaign for the calendars, timelapse videos, and other goodies featuring the art. I am soo excited!  I feel more motivated than I have in a long time, and I can't wait to see if this is successful!

Hey! How are you?

Since my old account was hacked, I'm sending this message again!

First of all, I'm a big fan of your art, and for that reason, I decided to create an account here on deviantART to warn people about its arts being plagiarized, and specially you, that there's a guy called "João Vítor" who edited your "Morgana portrait" art and posted it on his facebook claiming that it's his art (he also putted a watermark with his name in the bottom right corner of the image) I find it an absurd and I think you should try to contact and talk to him about this unscrupulous plagiarism. Here is his facebook profile: www.facebook.com/profile.php?i…

Since that his photos are locked (only friends and friends of friends can see it), I'll post the screenshot of the plagiarism in my gallery to warn other people about it! My mission in this DeviantArt account is to make a collection of plagiarism proofs AND expose them in my gallery, reporting those who shamelessly steal another artist's art. 

Wish you the best!
