Watch your thoughts for they become your words. Watch your words for they become your actions. Watch your actions for they become your habits. Watch your habits for they become your character. Watch your character for it becomes your destiny. -- Anonymous Quote

Greetings! My name is Destinie, and yes my friend that is in fact my real name. I'm 30 years old. I've been married for five years to my partner (lordpenguinman) of twelve years, and we currently have no children. Children will be a thing for us eventually, though. I adore kids.

I live in North Carolina and work as a freelance Illustrator, Comic Artist, and Graphic Designer. In fact, my husband and I are currently working on a comic project called Grimoire Rose that I hope we will be able to share with the world sooner than later.

Many of you have asked how I got the fancy symbol next to my name and what it means. Well, that's the Senior Member symbol. I received this symbol after I served on the Community Relations team for the Anime/Manga community here on deviantART. It was my pleasure and an honor to serve. :rose: You can learn more about becoming a senior member below:

FAQ #29: How do I become a Senior Member?

And that is the tip of the iceberg on who I am. I hope that you will stick around and get to know me better. :) Ta ta!

Nijbelung - ref / Sketch by Ryltha Some Kind Of Free AdoptHello Sweeties! :heart:
Yesterday I started working on my new fantasy project, called Meragor! 
Meragor is a small, pale moon, where an ancient and magical race live, the Nijbelungs. Here are the first ref pictures of the female ones:
Nijbelungs live in perfect harmony with nature. Their silvery skin with the darker markings fits perfectly to the moon's white land and of the blue and plover-leaved forests to which they live. Their eyes and the crystals on their forhed shine from the inner magic they have. Skillful hunters only kill for food but most often they eat fruits. Their homes, in the heart of the forest, are decorated with magical turquoise/blue crystals and lanterns. 

Design your own Nijbelung (male or female), with hair stlye ( always rasta ) skin a
