What's up? :D I'm Ez! :wave:

I live in sunny South Africa where I spend most of my time indoors, except when I'm leisurely walking around doing errands, strategically plotting my every route to stay in the shade. B-)

In my free time, I work on my illustrated novel project, The Valiard Mansion. If you want to learn more about that, you can pop by my Gallery or visit:

If you wanna ask me anything, just drop me a Comment or a Note. :meow:

Hope you enjoy my Gallery! :hug: :heart:

Hi, guys! :D

Hope you enjoyed Chapter 12 of Valiard. :aww:

Anyways, I'm going back to revise Chapter 5 now, which is the chapter where Theodore and Adam visit the Valiard Mansion for the first time. 

I'll be inserting a Fan Art Section into the revised PDF, so if you have done any Valiard art you'd like to have featured, let me know!

Priority will be given to spoiler-free pics as far as the plot stretches in Chapter 5. The deadline for submissions is Thursday, 28th of May. So if you'd like to draw something quick, you have time to do so! :aww: I publish only five artworks per chapter, but surplus works will be published in the revisions of previous/following chapters, so don't worry about being excluded. ;)

Even better — Chapter 13 will need fan art, too!

I'm also working simultaneously on the new Chapter 13, which is scheduled for release on May 31st. If you'd like to draw a scene from Valiard that takes place after Chapter 5, I'd still love to feature it in Chapter 13! :D Maybe after reading Ch.12, some of you could draw some Teen Rutheo stuff if you want! :la: I'd love to see that! :XD:

The deadline for Chapter 13 submissions is also Thursday, 28th of May. :meow:

To submit your Valiard fan art, follow the instructions in this Journal entry:

Get featured in Chapter 11 of Valiard!Me again! :blush:
I think you guys know the drill by now. :giggle:
Want to share your Valiard fan art?
Draw your favourite Valiard character or scene and get it published at the end of the official chapter PDF for all Valiard readers to see! :D If you've already drawn a character and want it included in the next chapter, just let me know. I will not automatically publish every fan art or gift art piece I'm aware of — I want your permission first.
E-mail the following to
:bulletblue: Attach a high-resolution version of your fan artwork.
:bulletblue: Submit a short description (80-100 words) of who you are and what inspires you to draw.
:bulletblue: List an online profile where people can find you (your deviantART, Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc)
:bulletred: Indicate a name by which you would like to be identified. Normally, I just post your first name as it appears on your e-mail information, but if you'd like

Anyways! The revisions I'll be doing to Chapter 5 will be cosmetic only. No plot changes whatsoever. It's just a chapter in particular that is long overdue for some cleaning up. Several names have changed since I first wrote it and it SORELY needs an illustration of the actual Mansion, which I'll be adding now. :faint: If you have recently read Chapter 5 and noticed some mistakes, feel free to let me know. I appreciate any help I can get. :D

And that's it from me for now. I super look forward to seeing your artworks! :dummy: :D :star: Have a great day, guys! :hug: :heart:

Do you believe in ghosts and hauntings? 

162 deviants said Yes, but I've never seen anything to prove it.
157 deviants said No, but I still like the idea.
116 deviants said OMIGOSH YES! Because I've had a paranormal experience! (Leave a comment and tell everyone about it if you like!)
61 deviants said Kevin Bacon.
36 deviants said Don't be stupid. Ghost stories are just tourist attractions.
29 deviants said Ghosts are fudging a-holes. All they do is make creepy noises and close doors. Like, WTF? You're a GHOST! DO SOMETHING AWESOME!
24 deviants said Why aren't ghosts active during the day? Dat don't make no sense.

I absolutely love your story! I'm so jealous that you can draw like that! But I'm so happy I found your drawings and sketches because I've looked at your sketches and redrew them and ive picked up your style. So thank you! Keep up the great work!

I hate you. I really do. I loathe your talent that is sucking me into reading all of Valiard Mansion, going through your gallery and starting to do more sketches of your characters when I'm on finals.

If I fail, I'm blaming you.

God bless.

I love you QuQ Loki's wink
