Adia's story, Part 1Upon the eastern front, a premature daylight slowly envelops the land. Its rays, tendrils-parasitic ivy embellishing the eastern scape. A lively, portside city full of constant hustle and bustle. Caige was the “city of opportunity”.Adia's story, Part 1 by Hazrak
Anyone who was anyone travelled to, lived in, or visited, hoping to make their dreams a reality.
Among the heavily populated streets, a girl fought her way to the Saffron Avenue subway. Her jet black hair grazed the neck of her leather jacket, and her citrine eyes darted about the station. Boarding the train was never an easy task in this part of town, the walls tagged to the nines. Adia Balewa, an immigrant, was beginning to understand that attaining her dream would be far more challenging than she’d ever conceived...

settled on the view of the true Acropolis- a kingdom of morning clouds, billowing and bathed in dawn’s glow. Gentle- ethereal even- streaks of lilac, butter yellow, periwinkle, and the like, surrounded the plane like magic.
From pale lips, a sigh rasped outward, half in sleep, half impatience. Cold bronze eyes drift from the window to the owner’s wrist, lackadaisically observing the time. Good, only 20 minutes before we land… Jae mused inwardly. Raising her left hand, she tentatively touched the tattoo below her eye. Her family, no… that wasn’t right… those kkangpae were not her family… the Black Qilin were ruthless, had she not fled, they would’ve “made an example of her”.
She had heard Adelade of Alba was to arrive there at the same time as she. She snorted, realizing that she and Jae were worlds apart. Jae snapped back to attention as

Righty all the way
5. What was your first deviation?
It hurts! IT HURTS!!!
6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
For me, it's a tie between written word, and simple paper and pencil.
7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I truly wish I was a master of painting. Otherwise, I wish I was just a master at what I do in general haha
8. What was your first favourite?
I still truly believe that this is a masterpiece.
9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
I admire the art that makes me envious of their skill. It never mattered what the subject was, but if I wanted to see my characters in their style, that was what I favourited. Also, anything that inspired me to work harder, and create something new was there, too.
12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
I've have many come and go, though some stay around. Tazi-nee has mentored me, helping me to expand. At first, I was sort of copying her, trying to be just like her. But, she showed me how to make things my own. I also have to thank a deviant who no longer uses the account, , but helped me explore ideas and concepts, as well art styles I had never worked with. She also helped me as a friend. I'd also say the user allowed me to be myself around her. I didn't feel like I was trying impress anyone, just shared a camaraderie of sorts.
13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
Pencil and paper, mostly. Sometimes followed by Prismacolor colored pencils, and ink pens. And, on special occasions, I will pull out the Photoshop and tablet.
14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
In my room, backyard, or anything nature in general. The beauty of nature often swells my heart and mind with ideas.
15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Becoming friends with Deviants I admire, and finding a mentor that helps me grow artistically, and emotionally
