Aries - 2016 Fae Zodiac Calendar by Enchantress-LeLe
Aries - 2016 Fae Zodiac Calendar
I finally have my first Fae finished for the Kickstarter Calendar Project I will be launching in September.  This is the first sign of the zodiac, Aries!  I want this calendar to have a little darker mood than I normally paint, so I am trying a different style.  Let me know what you think!  I will be posting the link to the Kickstarter here when it goes live, but check out my facebook page for even more updates!

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!

Hello!

I just wanted to come on and say a quick yet very sincere thank you to all of you wonderful people that have honored me with watches and comments.  When I feel down about a piece, unmotivated, or feel that nasty art block coming, I just come on here and read your wonderful feedback and it helps me push through it.  I don't always have the time to comment back right away, but you should know that I read every one of them (some of them MANY times) and that they mean a lot!  <3!!   

I have been getting a lot of inquiries about my art commission prices.  For private commissions you can find a general price list Here.  Unfortunately I will not be able to take on any private commissions for the next few months, but feel free to message me and I would be happy to put you on a waiting list.  For commercial work please send me a note, or an email to LeLe@LeslieCasilli.com.

I would also like to share a quick link to my Facebook page.  I check it more often, and I will be doing a few future giveaways on it, so you should check it out! :D  LeLe's Facebook Page!!!
