I have different outlooks on certain things about life, outlooks that don’t really fall into a certain group of belief systems really at all. All though some of the elements are derivative from one predominant set of beliefs.

When I try to think to myself about what the best guidelines are to writing a good story is the next important thing for me is the foundation. The previous blog, Article 1.0 – The Beginning, was the beginning to this story. I must say I am very pleased at the reaction it got; I don’t think anybody who read it really realized what it was really, as a written peace, what the purpose of it was.

As I mention in the previous blog, a story has a good beginning, middle and an end. It has begun, so now what is the middle. Obviously the middle needs to have quite somebody to make this story worth reading. The foundation is the story, the world, the reality you create for the reader.

So... I'm Leana de Klerk. I'm lucky enough to beable to actually only do my art and survive with it. I'm not by any means rich from it, but I survive...

The two things I do for commissions is covers for novels and then just plain photo manipulation things... You know the type where you tell me what you want and I make it...

My prices are negotiable, but here are the normal rates:

one model + bg ->>> $50
one model + bg + unlimited extra painting ->>>>$100

$10 per extra model added

I am also a mentor and part of the mentor ship program at Photomanip101
