About the Artist
I, D. "Mintaka" Peal, have been drawing for years, but I did not turn on it seriously until late 1999 in my senior year of highschool. A rekindling of my love of art was born after getting Final Fantasy IX, and wanting to suddenly draw fanart from it. It's expanded from there, to retouch an ancient project, Crystara, and other things. Illusions was th rename of Memoria, my first art site on the web. From Illusions came Kikkyou, which is what I currently use for my art gallery. However, feeling a keen need to collect the past to her, as a look back at the long road of learning, I collected the files from the remaining mirror of Illusions I discovered on Prohosting and have recreated it to a degree here. Everything here is mine - this is how I've drawn, this is what I've done. And you can see, clearly, just how far I've come.
