Maryanneleslie's Profile Picture
Mary-Anne Leslie
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
I'm from Vancouver Canada originally and now reside in Arizona. After taking Graphic Design and Illustration in college I decided I would also like to study classical animation which is now basically obsolete but did it ever hone my drawing skills! After experimenting with many mediums and techniques I fell in love with ballpoint pen when I needed a fast and inexpensive method for a job I was not making any money on. I've illustrated a couple of books for people who self published, and have sold several paintings and done murals in between for the cash. As you can probably tell, my favorite subjects to draw are anything Romantic, and I'm particularly fond of costume.


Koimaid by Maryanneleslie
Yep, she needed a background. I was afraid I'd ruin it with the unpredictable watercolors but nothing terrible happened. :)
Koi mermaid by Maryanneleslie
Koi mermaid
Here is a little mermaid with Koi fish. The word "Koi" is a homophone for their word for love or affection. It's in Wikipedia folks. Ballpoint pen and watercolor.
Maiden Mother Crone by Maryanneleslie
Maiden Mother Crone
Here's the triple goddess commissioned by a dear friend of mine. Maiden, Mother and Crone represented by the phases of the moon, and of course embodying the phases of life.  Experimenting with adding color to my ink drawings.

I'm moving and haven't had the time to make a nice new thing. But these might turn into something eventually. They're little vampire fairies I think.
The Skellingtons by Maryanneleslie
The Skellingtons
Of all animated films, I find this to be the most romantic pairing. I think it's because Sally is crushing so hard on Jack and he virtually ignores her the whole movie so when he finally comes around, it's so sweet. We've all been in unrequited love, n'est-ce pas? and his singing voice is so lovely. Anyways I just had to draw them in Victorian garb. Their outfits might not entirely match timewise but I'd like to believe they acquired the outfits from a little grave robbing.

Tag a quality deviant - you’re it! :thumbsup: Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are. If you're feeling the love, pass it on to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, of course nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! Tight Hug

Thank you for being my friend! :heart:
