I am Wind. Just Wind, but you can also call me Ellie (my real name) if you want. Not a very creative name but it fits! I am a 21 year old digital artist. I draw mostly canines, but I also enjoy drawing other styles such as Invader Zim and Lion King as well as creating fursuits. I love art, but it is not my true calling and I intend to go into wildlife biology in the very near future.
As you may have noticed I draw a lot of Frodo from the Lord of the Rings. I saw LOTR when I was 9 (would have been a year sooner but my parents wouldn't let me watch it when it came out; thought it would scare me) and I have been hooked ever since. Yes I will admit that I do have an unhealthy "relationship" with Frodo, but he is everything I look for and want. I do know he isn't real though, I'm not that crazy! But I hope I can someday find my Frodo in real life.

Why wolves? Although liking wolves/having a wolf fursona has become a pretty cliche thing on the internet world I have always felt an affinity toward wolves since childhood that I can't really explain. I like wolves because I like wolves, and for no other reason.
What program do you use for your digital art?
I use Photoshop CS2 and a Wacom Intous4 tablet.
Can I use your art?
Well that depends; you may NOT repost my art and claim it as your own or use any of my characters without my permission. But you MAY reference my art, do fan art, or even trace my art, BUT I require that you do credit back to me if you do so.
Can I use your characters in an RPG?
No you may not. I'd like my characters to remain with me.
Will you RP with me?
NO! I have so much better things to do than sit and dink around with someone I don't know. Besides, I like to write my own stories, so please don't even bother to ask.
Will you help me with my art?
Certainly! I love giving tips and tricks on how to draw things. I also have a few tutorials in my gallery that may be useful.
Why do you have two fursonas?
I made up Wind back in middle school, she is the me I wish I could be; wild, free, strong. My silver wolf character (also Wind, but more commonly called Ellie) is an exact representation of me in wolf form since I can't draw people.
Are Ellie and Wind separate characters?
Well... yes and no. They are both a representation of myself and are actually both named Wind (I will only refer to "Ellie", which is my real name, to avoid confusion). Wind the WindWolf is the imaginary me I wish I could be, while Wind is average everyday me, mostly because I can't draw people. But they are both Wind.
Can you teach me how to draw?
Not really. I'm still learning myself, and I don't really have a technique for doing things. I usually start with a circle for the head, but that's about as far as my construction lines usually go. If you want my advice I say to look at the real thing you want to draw. Learn about it, and then really all you have to do is just practice.
