Is yours not here? Note me! I am human, and have concentration issues, so it's entirely likely that yours just slipped my mind.

My birthday badge




Peeps I'm looking for new books or book series to read in the coming year.

I like me some fantasy or scifi, I like stories with animal characters or with creatures, but they don't have to be there.

Gimme your recs!

My recommendations (fair trade, right?)

-Temeraire series by Naomi Novik: it's the Napoleonic wars, with dragons as airships. Need I say more?

-Airborne series by Kenneth Oppel: from the author of Silverwing, now we got an alternate world with super-zeppelins and sky pirates and cloud cats and ghost ships. Really fun read!

-Song of the Summer King by Jess E. Owens: DA's own ElementalJess, do check out her series about gryphons and dragons and this amazing fantasy world. You want well written animal characters? Look no further. Also bring tissues. Lots of tissues. Especially for the last book (darnit Jess!)

-The Old Kingdom series by Garth Nix: (currently on this one) We got necromancers that put down the risen dead with magic bells, we got kickass female protags, we got nightmare fuel, and we got a shape-shifting dog, among many other things.

-The Dark Lord of Derkholm by Diana Wynne Jones: from the author of Howl's Moving Castle, this is a story about how corporations and fantasy worlds don't mix. It's also a story about how family comes in all shapes and sizes, and even though your siblings might be gryphons, they're still your family.
Update: Ok it is set up now. I will start posting stuff as soon as there is stuff to post.

:star:With few exceptions, I will no longer be posting animations here on my DA. They'll be on my Patreon now.

Ok, I made this thing.

It's not done yet, still needs some banner art and I gotta sort out the reward levels a bit more.
Thinking of having it focus on animations and illustrations, with a sprinkling of 3D work here and there.

:star: What would you, potential patrons, want to see in terms of creation and rewards?

About me
Twin sister :iconcomixqueen:

Name: Olivia. Call me Nekno unless you're my buddy or have met me IRL.

Born and raised in México City, México; currently living in San Francisco.

I graduated from Academy of Art University in 2015 with a BFA in Animation and Visual Effects. Currently freelancing with a day-job as a lab tech at my old university.

I have so far freelanced in the mobile game industry and the animation industry.

I'm a huge biology nerd; I love to learn about animals of all kinds, and so am full of largely useless (but interesting) information about them. Ask me anything.
I am also a docent (educator/tour guide) at the San Francisco Zoo.

Career goal: Be a creature designer/character animator. Maybe also an illustrator and a creature modeler. We'll see, still learning.

Favorite animals: Cats in general, cheetah = top fav, Smilodon close second. Mola mola, Moose. I have a weakenss for Knabstrup, paint, and draft horses.

Hey! I just joined a group similar to Tokotas. It's called Innola, actually i think they might be in the same universe? Well it's giant cat things. Since you like kitties I think you'd like it. Plus it's the first time I'm in a group like this. If you join say I introduced you! :D 
nekonotaishou Featured By Owner 5 days ago  Professional Filmographer
I saw them! They look interesting, but I'm still thinking about how much I would enjoy drawing all the species details. I might join later on, but right now I don't feel so inclined. If I do join, I will certainly refer you :)

Alright. I was thinking of joining Tokotas, but I got intimidated at how big the group is. 
nekonotaishou Featured By Owner 4 days ago  Professional Filmographer
It's big, but I've yet to run into an un-friendly person. If you do want to join, I'd gift you a geno to start :)
