Most people call me Mel which is short for Melissa. I'm a fairly private person, I tend to keep to myself. I live in the northeastern part of the US, I have 3 children and an assortment of hobbies. Much of my past time on the net revolved around free form, text based role-play, also know as RPG in some circles. I created and played a variety of characters, everything from a deaf old man to a unique immortal warrior. My imagination is still filled with images inspired by my past RPG experiences, some of which are reflected in my artwork. I spend a great deal of time in the woods, bascially everyday. My Great Pyreness Hugo and me tromp all over the mountain forest that's about 50 feet out my back door.
I had deleted most of my gallery here, the older images, so I do not have nearly the number of images I used to.
There's more of course, but I do have a personal website, it's listed below. If you'd like to know more, visit my about page!
I post on DA, and on RDNA. Deviantart has been a wonderful experience for me, I have learned a great deal since I am there.
I go by Justmel on RDNA, though I post there very infrequently.
I'm very active on Deviantart, and I use MCKrauss. http://mckrauss.deviantart.com/
