Good morning Callisto VIII...
Google+ will celebrate its 15th birthday in August 2015. While many online communities have come and gone during the last decade and a half, DeviantArt remains because of our passionate and committed community. In that time, we've celebrated many milestones, and it became apparent we were in need of a place to share our victories and our challenges. And since we want to move toward more complete transparency with the community, what better time to also sho

It's LIE-lee ... or just Lulu

Click the banners for the links!

I am Lyhli, but you can call me Lulu. My mate for life is "Beastman," and other family members of my small herd are Aria and my oracle Teaks.

I work with creativity and imagination as my main tools, and animals are my main interest with cartoons and fantasy/sci-fi stories other huge interests of mine. Some of my favorite popular franchises can be found in my profile "interests."

I'm a fan of many, many things. Here's a list of some of my major projects:

:bulletblue: Ethereal Skies comic series about Holli, Tushar, and Aravi. This also includes Skyrim fanart, including mine and other original characters.
:bulletblue: My original universe and all the crazy creations and stories it involves. It's almost as large as the Star Wars universe in structure, feels Doctor Who-esque in story, and is my baby and most prized creation. There may be an original comic series in store that's been in the workings since early 2007.

I do appreciate that my art stay here on deviantArt, and if you want to post it somewhere else, please ask permission first. I am proud of my art, and I don't want it abused.

Journal History


To everyone who speaks English as a second language: let me put some of your fears to rest.

We native English speakers love your accents, and we're happy to help with how confusing English can be. We love hearing about your countries, since most of the internet is dominated by American/English culture. As an American, I feel like I dont "get out much" since the internet has a strong American tone. So please tell us more about where you live! Like, a lot of you buy water and milk in bags? What?? Its the little things like that that we are surprised to hear!

So don't feel shy about your culture or accents. It's all new and fun to us Americans!
There was a little magic left over from this solar eclipse. Just a soft, little trace of magic if you listened well enough. :heart:
My custom follower, as previously mentioned. I wanted to make a woodelf that resembled the snow elves and just see if I could make a follower in general. Eventually I'll try making more complex followers based on my Skyrim characters, Holli and Tushar.

I followed an intensive, step-by-step process on how to make a basic Skyrim follower, and it worked! I'm so happy! Pictures will come soon!
I've been delving back into my own worlds lately, which made me beg the question: How does one learn about an unfamiliar, alien world without getting lost? Say I would take you on a tour of my universe. What would you expect me to show you first so you had a basis for understanding?

1: Journals/wordy posts with a simple sketch (or two). I would describe in factual detail the unique worlds and its workings. Artwork of it would come later.

2: Deviations with brief summaries. Story-like descriptions would come much later to explain what is in the artwork.

3: Something else. Have you seen an effective method of a universe/story introduction that might be helpful?
If there's a few people who have changed my life for the better, it's LadyMetaRose, KingCoin, ceruleetheblue, and Vattukatt.

Story time!

KingCoin and I first met here on dA, and it was during a time of losing one of my best friends and trying to discover myself. Said prior best friend didn't see eye to eye with me anymore, since I was going through some sudden spiritual changes. But if anyone showed me how to be true to yourself and say "forget that, I'm doing my thing that makes me happy," with utmost kindness, it was KingCoin. This includes not hiding personal likes, finding humor in down situations, and shining your brightest because you know what? That's who you are.

He introduced me to LadyMetaRose and ceruleetheblue shortly after. LadyMetaRose was going through a much worse struggle in her life, but she showed me that taking care of yourself means making the most difficult decision and putting your foot down. She proved through action (and to me) that self-improvement doesn't get done without determination, self-discipline, and effort no matter what hiccups may throw you off. So I kept my eyes forward, my feet on the ground, and pushed for better change. 

Ceruleetheblue showed me there's an endless fascination with the natural world around us. With an endless adventure, an endless sense of humor best accompanies that. But no matter how light our surface, our darkness is just as strong. If we are our own world inside, and there is this light and darkness fighting within, what can we do about it while remaining true to ourselves? I dove into my own darkness with no plan, no idea of what I was about to face. And I found one of the strongest parts of me hidden in my own lifetime of forgotten guilt and shame. Unintentionally, she taught me that self-acceptance lets light be light, darkness be dark, and harmony to connect the two.

I first approached Vattukatt and her sister, Escaron about their stones and drawings. It turns out we all have a very similar world within ourselves that we hope to cultivate for the better. They both showed me that no matter how cruel the world, or how grim even minor circumstances might be, holding on to your inner light is the sole purpose of being alive. Even if your light doesn't "fit" anywhere else, or others want to tell you how to shine, you don't listen to them. Your light is yours. It's not supposed to fit anywhere else but in yourself.

I don't know where I'd be without you all.

If there's one thing you must stay, it's true. 
If there's one thing you must do, it's move. 
If there's one thing you must believe, it's yourself. 
If there's one thing you must be, it's resilient. 
Spirit Animals - The Moon by LyhliTheLuminescent

In a dream I had, every person alive owned a horse. They were all a light, creamy color, and they were all kept in a large, dirty pen. This pen was not quite large enough for the vast number of horses here, but it seemed to work based on the horses' behavior. The horses here acted like sheep and had wool like sheep; they all acted the same and traveled together blindly in tight groups. This pen was owned by a few people who oversaw everyone else's horses. Even if you didn't live here, your horse was here, and every city had their own horse pen.

I was excited when my family told me they'd check up on our horses, and drove us all out there. My horse was the purest, brightest white, but she didn't act like any of the others. The pen owners were aware of this and were trying their best to make her behave. She was put in a tiny stable, barely bigger than she was, and her head was tied down to a post on the ground, not allowing much room for movement at all. She was growing patches of grey coloring from her stress.*

They were trying to break her. They wanted her to be like the rest. I was sad, but only melancholy, since I wasn't sure how I was supposed to think about this. She was visibly stressed, but she was supposed to be the same as the others ... right? Would she be happy when she was like them?

On the drive back home, my family was shallowly happy that the horses were doing well.

But I wasn't. Their approval was unsettling. She's a mustang. She's no sheep.


* The grey patches are what happens to her when she's anxious, stressed, depressed, or any negative feeling. Given enough negativity, she'd be a dapple grey, as I've seen in a warning.
Note: compare the essence of this dream to this dream.
Also note that this mermaid form is a form I often take in lucid dreams, to the strong disapproval and disgust of my family.

8 Facts about Holli Lujah 

1: I created Holli Lujah to be me in the Skyrim world, so if you know me, you know her. She's me down to the name, Holli/Holly, and being a little rounder (just enough to be adorably fluffy and keep warm in the cold climate). 
2: I decided on Holli's last name "Lujah" since my family joked about changing my middle name to "Lujah" at one point, a play on words of "Hallelujah." But Holli Lujah has no middle name.
3: Despite the racism in Skyrim against outsiders, Holli never felt bothered by it.
4: My first-ever Skyrim experience was on the Xbox 360, where I played as a red-haired, pale, Khajiit woman named "Holli Lujah." I played on this save file until my game became so large that it crashed and froze every time I stepped outside of my home, Windstad Manor. I plan on making the image of this variant of Holli actually Holli's mysterious mother. 
5: Holli is fascinated by new things, especially that of living beings and magic. My research into the Khajiit forms is story-wise one of her adventures to learning more of her kind.
6: The weapons Holli wields at the different stages of her life reflect how true to herself she is, and a reflection of my own self discovery. The swords and physical bow and arrows in the early stage of her life before college, reflect that she does what she is taught. Her ethereal, summoned bow she learns in college is a transitioning stage as she gets used to magic, learns new things, and learns more about herself. When she becomes a conjuration mage at graduation, she is living true to herself, but continues to discover the deeper parts of her soul. As she grows as a mage, she becomes a powerful druid wielding nature magic when she finds a profound connection with nature, which reflects my life choices of becoming more peaceful and hippie-like, leaving unneeded turmoil behind. 
7: I use the Skyrim mod "Druid Essentials" for all of Holli's druidic adventuring. It's a large, cleanly functioning mod with a new discovery at every turn for druid-lovers, and accurately represents Holli's druid magic capabilities. 
8: While Holli specializes in conjuration magic (representative of my creativity in creating new things), she is trying to perfect completely new spells and scrolls of teleportation, portals, and wormholes. This is nothing more than her fascination and scientific mission to expand magic. Her research and experiments often lead to all-nighters, crashing on the enchanting table, and many, many new recipes for stronger coffee. 

8 Facts about Miles Teak 
(I couldn't decide which character, so I chose two)

1: During Miles' very early life as a science experiment, he involuntarily acquired his cybernetics. He was broken out around age 7 by other people-experiments who rallied together and burned the facility down. This was one of the biggest events in his world's recent history, including integrating and helping the escaped prisoners into modern society. With the influx of people who needed homes, most young children were taken to orphanages and similar places to quickly find families. After a complicated process of moving from family to family, Miles eventually stayed with Tanya's family.
2: During his time in the lab facility, Miles made friends with an escaped animal experiment, an albino, bioluminescent bat he named Comet. Comet appears to have a more sophisticated intelligence than other bats, on par with dogs, and followed Miles during the break-out. Comet's stayed with him ever since.
3: Miles was very socially awkward and didn't pick up on social cues or body language until about 10 years old. Because of this, he is very innocent-minded, although now a functioning young adult.
4: Miles is about 4 years behind in school, not unlike the other escaped prisoners who are learning to function in the modern world at varying paces. He rather enjoys school and learning.
5: His cybernetic half of his body was a prototype material, and as such, he suffers from shooting pains where his natural and artificial nerves connect.
6: Despite his early life, he does not suffer from PTSD or hide his past. Rather, he's very open about it and thankful it was not worse than it was.
7: Miles is his world's equivalent of a Pisces.
8: His best friend is a humanoid dragon who urges Miles to lose his virginity.
