My name is Marina Neira and I'm 33 years old. I live in Pembroke Pines, Florida, where I make a living as a freelance illustrator. I am also an aspiring children's fantasy writer.
My life is all about reading, drawing and writing. When I'm not working on my clients' projects, I like to work on my own stories.
My most important project is Meganeea, a series of fantasy novels for children. You will see a lot of concept art for these books regularly posted to my gallery.
I am sometimes open for commissions. Sometimes I open commission slots only on FA and don't announce them anywhere else, so be sure to watch me there if you're interested in snagging one of those.
Thanks for dropping by!
So… Apparently late last year there was a hullabaloo I missed since I hadn’t been posting to Weasyl for a while… I’m not sure if this was always this way. I seem to remember that in the beginning, I could prevent people from tagging my work. But when I checked that section, I only find an option to prevent people from removing my tags. Can't do anything to prevent people from tagging anymore --if I ever could.
I might just be misremembering, but either way, I find community tagging that I cannot opt out of to be terribly invasive. I am personally boycotting Weasyl until this is rectified. I planned to upload all of my art of the past few months there today, but realizing this, I no longer feel comfortable doing so. It is such an irritating feature and makes me anxious to know someone could tag my work as they please, when I already tag it quite well myself.
Bye Weasyl, it’s been fun! Hopefully you change this in the future. It's a great site otherwise.

Exactly what counts as a prop?
In a drawing with no background, a couch in which characters are sitting on would be a large prop. In an illustration with a fully drawn background, trees, bushes, far off buildings, etc generally don't count as props unless you ask for something complicated/specific.
For example, if you ask for a character riding a tricycle down the sidewalk, the background elements aren't props. However, the tricycle would count as one.
