I created this piece as a gift to my lovely followers and supporters of SilverFlame Art. If you click on the thumbnail in this entry, it will take you to my main site, where there is a link to the full-sized, high res download. I hope you all enjoy!
Last week, I spoke a little bit about the Walkers Between Worlds, how art itself can be a magickal act, how it can connect to deep truths, dreams, and the divine. Today, I’m going to write further on that subject, detailing some methods you can use to infuse your art with these connections.

Honestly, not much is happening in my life that doesn't involve work. I've been pretty steady with commissions since I started up again, which is interesting to me since a year ago I couldn't even give my work away for free! It's like the dam broke. I'm all for it. Still starting slow, but I'm looking for it to steadily pick up.
I've picked up a side project in Beyond Flatland again. I tried to let it die at the end of last year, but it's something I just couldn't shake, so I rebuilt it on a different platform. This, too, feels different than it did last year-- it feels like the energy is flowing, rather than being blocked, like it's starting to come alive even though there are only a handful of users. Even the site itself seems to have shaken off the issues it had last year; it's working perfectly, whereas before something kept breaking every time I turned around. Yes, that's partly due to the change of platform to one more suited to the community-oriented site I'm working toward, but even so, it's just one more thing that falls into place. I'm not sure it should have a large user base, to be honest. What I'm trying to do with it is a sort of focused magic, about connection and creation and multi-dimensionality, using imagination as a catalyst. The people who should be there will make their way there.
I'm wondering if I should just delete the silverflameart community here, since it's only got a handful of followers, and use this LJ to post updates about the main site, links to fiction and articles, art, etc. The community doesn't really have many followers, and I think I'd reach more people by using my LJ. Eh, maybe I'll just leave it up in case it suddenly starts picking up. I'll do most of my updates here, though.
Good morning, friends and SilverFlame Art supporters! Amyla here. Last week was quite a time, getting things ready for the new crowdfunding art blog! It feels wonderful to be getting back into the swing of things again. Anyway, it's Monday, which means that I am opening for $5 sketch prompts from now until 5 p.m. CST. This is a weekly event on the new silverflameart blog--$5 Sketch Day.
The concept is simple: Go to silverflameart, leave a prompt in the comments of the Sketch Day post, a short description of something you'd like to see me sketch. Use the payment button at the bottom of the entry on my blog to pay, and I'll post your sketch both in a reply to you in the comments and in a personal message, where I will link you to the full-sized file.
Also, the first three prompts are free!
So, come on by and leave your prompts! Please be sure to read the info on the blog post carefully before requesting.
Some sample sketches:
I heard from my medical service. I have a surgery consultation and other tests coming up in February. No clue how long it will take to get things moving from there.
Other than that, things have been well enough. I'm putting most of my focus on the crowdfunding project for the time being. I'm one-track minded. LOL.
