Greeting traveler! My name is Maranda St.Martin. I am a 26 year old illustrator that has been drawing all of my life, but started really creating in 2008, when I was 12 years old. I primarily focus on fantasy based illustrations. I particularly enjoy the themes of psychedelics ( Though I do not personally use them.) , angels, religion, and space.
I graduated from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth for a Bachelors in Illustration. After years of hard work, I am the artist you see today. Primarily using Procreate on my ipad to create my illustrations. I thank you for taking the time to view my work. Do enjoy your stay and have a nice trip!

" Ink is one of the main faces of Yuukonink. A sort of fantastical "sona" for myself. Though she is based off of me. She has aspects of me that I wish I had for myself. Such as being more confident and outgoing. I only feel like her while I create. "

Ink is touted as the true creator of Terigold. ( The world in which all personal illustrations of Yuukonink take place. ) This however, is only one third true. In reality. They are one third of the creator's soul that ended up becoming its own being. They have taken up the role of a deity. Tipping the scale when necessary, keeping balance and creating most of the worlds. Allowing their other parts to have more passive roles and simply exist in Terigold under different identities..
Despite helping to create the universe that their people inhabit. Ink is not popular. Ink takes the role of a God and is therefore rarely seen. Leading to many of the population to not even believing in them. To keep balance, Ink tries not to directly involve themselves too much. Leading to many of population believing they do not care for the wellbeing of them when disaster strikes. With few sightings and little proof other than texts that Ink exists. It widely debated if there was any creator at all.
Ink is of a rare species called " Cloudy Pingdas ", Which are celestial angels that are tied to a celestial body. Such as a star, comet, planet or even black hole. Ink is the most powerful of them all. Being not tied to one, but two supermassive celestial bodies that they can switch from at will. One being a white hole and the other being a quasar. Despite being generally non violent, they prefer to be in their quasar form. Their celestial body is located far away from Terigold, where can generally do no harm. And when not working, they often stay isolated there. Watching from a distance. Making sure there is order.
A unique trait of Cloudy Pingdas is that they cannot frown under almost any circumstances. Even in the face of great destruction, sorrow and terror, Ink will maintain a grin. Be it, less wide and enthusiastic as usual. But a grin nonetheless. Unfortunately, for those who have seen them. This gives off a rather cold and creepy demeanor.
In Ink's passtime, they tend to a psychedelic mushroom garden and grow their own cannabis as well. Ink is very passionate about this hobby. Their plants tend to have supernatural qualities about them. That make them truly out of this world.
Lastly, Ink's name originated from the magic ink they use to create things and in combat. Oils are used from their garden are mixed from the ink that is generated from their scorpion like tail to to give different effects to those its used against and what its used to create.
" Yuu is what one would call my "Fursona". She is a direct representation of me. She has my body type, personality, and same preferences. She's essentially me as an (fantasy) animal and I tend to represent myself as her online. "

Yuu is another one of the three soul fragments of the creator of Terigold/Yuukonink. Instead of a Cloudy Pingda, they are a Cloudy Panda. A weather controlling hybrid of an inverted panda, Raccoon/Red Panda and African Wild Dog. They are the most powerful one though. Being of an angelic variety and able to take a deity like form when in "Creation Mode".
They are responsible for creating of all the animalistic creatures. Unlike Ink, they wish to take no to part in ruling. Nor do they want their greater being/form to even be known to others in the world they have created. They simply wish to enjoy their creations. Only interacting with/showing themselves to the anthropomorphic creatures and beasts of the lands. Yuu is one of the two out of the three fragments that has manifested outside the realm of inner worlds. ( Has come to Earth. ). Instead of creating solely for Terigold like Ink does. The things Yuu does often has the interest of taking care of things on Earth instead.
They are kind, creative, and can get very silly at times. Though, more than anything, they love helping others.
