You did the angling of her face very nicely - it's hard to get that foreshortening right. The coloring is pretty, with the use of compl...




TheyNamedHerRheulea's Profile Picture
Stacia Joy
Artist | Student | Digital Art
United States
Born on Good Friday in the Midwest, I grew up surrounded by forests and animals and thunderstorms that split the sky. Practically a wild-child, I survived mainly by crafting weapons out of sticks, making up characters to be my comrades, and adhering to a strict diet of cookies. After I grew up a little I relocated to New England to study illustration at RISD:CE. Three years later, I'm not in the Pacific Northwest, having moved to be close to mountains, good coffee, and a bigger writing community.

I have been writing for ten years, and creating art for about as long. My focus is on speculative fiction and illustrations that explore themes of relationships, self-exploration, snark, and a fascination for the natural world. To learn more about my storytelling projects and novels, visit my website.


Small talk kills me. I'll take my coffee black, thanks. Yes, the hair is real.


Now this one is a digital replica of an actual linocut I carved earlier this year. But with my current situation traditional printing isn't in the picture, so I'm making it available now as a digital print. 

This is the first of a short series: NOBLE CRESTS. The Latin here translates to "Faith, fierce, brave".

Available as a print here on DA now, but in future directly from me! 
Cleaning up my gallery today! My style and content has drastically changed since I first opened this account. Time to freshen up!
Thought of this design last night, whipped it up tonight. The nightshade is an added touch to the original, but I think the addition is a good one. 

Been really wanting to get back into linocuts, but don't have time/funds at the moment, so this at least let me release some of that line-centric, graphic creativity pent up inside. This is a little messier than my usual finishes, but I like that, so far. I need to learn to loosen up more with my linework, so maybe this is a baby step in that direction.

I'll probably have this available as a print - and maybe actual linocut prints at that - some time in the future! 

Art © :icontheynamedherrheulea:
Another updated character design for SNOWFALL, a retelling of Snow White inspired by Feudal Japan and rich with sorcery, shapeshifting, and the celebration of true beauty in its many forms - and disguises. 

The more I work on this concept-world, the more I love it. It's letting me explore femininity from so many different angles, from the fierceness of the queen, to the aro/ace/andro Huntress, to the soft sweetness of the little princess, here. I've already begun concepting how she changes as she grows, as well, maturing from one vein of femininity to another, and finally blending them once she is full grown and knows herself. 

It's a very cathartic bunch of design work, all-round. 





Bare Bones Collection by TheyNamedHerRheulea

"BARE BONES is a collection of poetry, prose, and freeform writings by author/illustrator Stacia Joy that peels back the thick skin of expectations, self-preservation, and societal norms in an attempt to honestly communicate what life with depression and PTSD is like; a glimpse through the stark lens of rediscovering emotional fluency that reveals the juxtaposition of pain and beauty in its rawest form."

Yes, I am finally beginning to share publicly the writings that have helped me process, and are currently helping me process, living with PTSD and the repercussions of (now mostly healed) depression. It's time. Silence doesn't change anything. 

Feel free to read along and either find camaraderie in your own battles, or walk a little way alongside the fighters, learn, and become an ally.
