Seriously... I have no actual niche where ALL my work could fit. It's kind of a random scattering of things I love XD

I'd love to get some prints and such.

NEW: If you donate to me (from now on) you get a feature on my main page! (feature's last as many days as you give points.)
~Minimum donation is 10 points for a feature. (which equals a 10 day feature.)
~Donations cannot be anonymous (duh)
~Donators get to have 1 pic featured for every 20 points (the first pic can be for 10-20 points. from there 40 = 2 pics and so on.)
~If you want me to give a small review of your gallery along with your feature, donate 5 extra points or more. More points equals a longer/more detailed review. (and comment if that is what you are donating extra for.)
~There will only be 3 donator features listed on my page at a time. After their time is up, the next donator in line will be put up.

Note: I have a high monthly average of views (which is still increasing anyway.) so you could get some good exposure from this!

^I don't seem to be very balance, do I?^
  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
    Wow, checking on it showed I was almost 9 years deviant!

  2. What does your username mean?
    Tesseri is kinda a mix of words meaning 4th dimension and fragmented glass made into beautiful are (like a mosaic). Shira was just a random tag. 
    My sona username Nova means new star and chases butterflies, and Nocturne is musical, but also derived from nocturnal meaning of the night.

  3. Describe yourself in three words.

  4. Are you left or right handed?

  5. What was your first deviation?
    This apparently
    A shiba inu Ginga-style by Tesseri-Shira

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
    Hmmm right now I love doing detailed, realistic, black and white paintings

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
    I want to learn to translate my skills from the black and white paintings to color realism better than I do so now.

  8. What was your first favourite?
    Wolf Midna by erwil

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

    So many favorites... I cant even list them all

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
    I've met a lot of amazing people who I first met on DA. And I look forward to meeting anyone else who is a member ;)

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    I've had a community of artists to outlet my art to. And that has made a huge difference in how I've been able to go from a shy kid to a social and well developed person.

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
    Computer and tablet

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    Usually in my bedroom when its dark, or out on an adventure

For The Dancing And The Dreaming by Tesseri-Shira
For The Dancing And The Dreaming
The evening of Sept 18, he and I were all alone, and yet not. We were sitting in front of all of the salt lake valley. It was quite and peaceful, private except for the odd hiker who passed by unawares. It was the perfect setting, and such a beautiful day as the sun was sinking in the west. We had spent the better part of the afternoon exploring and adventuring our city. We began at city creek and made our way through the shops and outward. He took me to a place he knew I would love, a bookstore, piled high with books from all over, used, new, and all having a story of their own beyond their printed words. I got a little carried away, but like the anchor he has always been, Mitch was able to keep me from floating away. He has become the rock I can rely on, and I want to be his as well.

Following our little escapade through the city, we went to Ensign Peak, a place he and I had visited before at night to look over the brilliance of the star-like city lights. We climbed to the first little monument on the trail, where some other people had stopped, presumably to enjoy the view as we were. We took a seat looking out over the valley, it was so clear of pollution and clouds, and seemed so pure. The sun at that point was lingering in the western sky, giving off just enough warmth to feel comfortably at ease, and a fresh breeze drawing in the slight scent of fall on the wind. With such a beautiful view, Mitch and I started pointing out how small it all seemed, seeing the rushing traffic on the highway looked like ants scurrying about. How small both our workplaces were made them imperceptible at that distance and height. We looked down into the city upon the roads we had previously just been walking about on, and for all the skyscrapers, it still seemed so tiny.

We had what felt like the world laid out before us, and yet, as the others at the peak took their leave, we were left with just the two of us speaking of sweet nothings to each other, and yet they meant the world. He was sitting a step lower than me, and I had my legs across his lap, leaning into him for the warmth of his body. His face was so clear, and well groomed, hair and beard perfectly done, with a lightly sweet musk about his neck. I brushed my fingers through his velvety hair, and feeling his soft skin on my hand. How I came to find a man, like the one before me was a mystery to me. I was the luckiest girl in the world. I drifted into those thoughts, as a brief silence fell. Then...

Mitch began, asking if I knew why he loved me. He had a myriad of reasons, personal, deep and words that I will cherish. He spoke of how he appreciated me in so many way, I had to hide my face in his neck to conceal a blush that was overcoming me. He slowly pushed my legs off his lap so he could get up, only to get down on one knee. He asked his part, there on the ground, alone with me but before all of the state. Mitch asked me to marry him for this life and the next. He and I could both see the family we would be with each other, the life we would make together, the problems we would fight side by side.

I couldn't believe it was actually happening. I couldn't believe the man of my dreams had really asked me to be his before the entire state, from a spot, he choose for the fact that no matter where we were at in the valley, we would be able to see it; the place that we got engaged. I couldn't get my mouth to function, but I nodded. I love him so much and all I could do was gibber and nod. Now Mitch and I are engaged. I get to call him my fiancé! OH MY GOSH! #>//////<#

Following the proposal, Mitch took me to a lovely restaurant in the city, it was a fondue place and the food was amazing. The ensuing food coma made us both just ready to crash into bed. Ending the night with a kiss sealed that wonderful evening.

Protective by Tesseri-Shira
I'm naturally a protective person. Though not aggressive. But the thought of someone disrespecting or hurting anyone that i care about sets my heart into flames. I've considered the lengths i would go to for my dog Kai, or my amazing boyfriend, and all of my friends and family. The raw fury behind that protectiveness is terrifying, but also awesome. It makes me feel as though i could tear apart a mountain with my bare hands. This all came to mind last weekend when someone did disrespect one of those i cared about. I barely kept myself from lashing out at the perpetrator. So that adrenaline has been boiling around for a couple days and to help release it gently i did this quick painting today. Anyways... yeah.
