I've back by sayuuhiro

I've been obsessed with Tokyo Ghoul lately... in case you can't tell.

Stuffed Animals 1 by Mahersal

Anime Club Mascot by Mahersal
You guys don't even know how much I love turning objects/animals into cute people. If I could get paid to do this, I would. I will personify ANYTHING as long as you send me a picture of the object/animal/whatever I'm personifying. 

Pricing reason: This works kinda like a custom adopt, except you already own the object.

Paypal cost: $3

Additional characters are 20:points: a piece.

No backgrounds for this (Ivan is an exception because he's, well, my character).
Chibi Traditional
Movin' Up in the World by Mahersal
Orca Boy by Mahersal
What Now by Mahersal
For those who prefer my traditional style over my digital--because no matter what I do, they look different--this is the commish for you!

Each additional character is 5:points:.

Pricing reason: because I will color the picture no matter what. To me, a picture doesn't look finished unless it's colored. (Or shaded, but I hate shading.)

Paypal cost: $5

Note: Backgrounds are an extra 10:points:. Period. Because my backgrounds are... special. *shot*


Mahersal's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States

Hey, everyone! I'm Maggie!
I'm a twenty-year-old college junior with a Communication major and an English Literature minor. Art is a hobby of mine, but I hope to be a published author one day. Hopefully in the very near future.

I love lighthouses, cats, boats, books, and being spastic fangirl over many, many different fandoms. Basically if I have fanart, I like it. If I don't, it's because I don't feel compelled enough to draw some or I feel I can't articulate my love for it in the best possible way.

Make sure to look through my scraps for sketches too! Who knows? I might digitize them in the future. ;)

In short, I'm hyper, sunny, a spaz, happy, and awesome.

Life is Busy and a Meme

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 7, 2015, 2:06 PM
  • Mood: dA Love
  • Listening to: "Black" by Kari Kimmel
  • Reading: Tokyo Ghoul
  • Watching: Tokyo Ghoul Root A
  • Playing: Sim City

Man, this journal is super cute. I'm sticking with it for a bit. The links work by the way. CLICK THEM! :D

For the record, I got myself a Premium Membership because I thought I'd have time to use dA during the second semester. UM. I WAS WRONG. SCHOOL IS STRESSFUL. AHH.

I reason I didn't post stuff over break? I was lazy. Like, super lazy. I only watched two animes. That's horrible. On the bright side, I finally made the Dean's List, so I got pie. Mixed berry pie. My sisters and I devoured it in one sitting.

So yeah. Since I made Dean's List once, I want to make it again. I'll get another pie. And making the list is super cool. Is this what being a straight A student is like? Geez, it's stressful and I hardly have time to do fun things like draw or write. My poor Target readers have been on a long hiatus. It's still coming. I hate writing wars, so I've been dodging it. I hope to actually finish it this year. Let's see how that goes.

I'm gonna try to draw more. I think I'm going to open up next Fanart Friday to you guys. I'll draw anything that I've watched/read/shown interest in. If I don't know it, don't tell me about it. I'll post a poll very soon! Probably after I finish with this journal.

This is the end of my updates. If you want to read the meme, you're more than welcome. If not, over and out!

MEME. DAMMIT. Tagged by DojangDoll. :P
For the record, I've done this meme before. It's fun to see how times have changed.


    1.     What does your Deviantart name mean and why?

Mahersal was the name of an imaginary cat friend I have when I was little. The story behind it: I took dance when I was little and was trying to say dance “rehearsal,” but it came out “mahersal.” The name since has stuck. I have a stuffed grey cat named Mahersal and my first cat was named Mahersal. And it’s pronounced Ma-her-sl. Not “sal.”

2. What fandom were you obsessed with when you joined and what are you into now?
YU-GI-OH. OH MY LORD. Do you guys remember that? WOW. WOOOOOW. It still holds a place in my heart, but I’m not as hard core as I once was.


Now I’m into Free, Tokyo Ghoul, and Attack on Titan. Who would’ve guessed? ;P

3. How many watchers do you have now? 

132. Some things never change.

4. Name 3 of your favorite artists on DA.

Oh man. Probaby burdge , Picolo-kun , and bleedman just to name a few. I have a lot of favorites.

5. Or lack thereof, move along…

6. Do you participate in clubs' contests here on dA?
I haven’t for years because I’m busy, but I’m hoping to enter the Sports AU contest Haruka-x-Rin!

7. What is your most popular submission

The most viewed is still that silly post I made years ago about Mythshipping, capping over 2,000 views (which is why I still keep it around). This baby Not All What It Seems by Mahersal has over 100 favorites. The YGO fandom is probably the most supportive and nicest fandoms I have come across fanart wise.

8. What are your favorite non-anime TV shows?

Doctor Who, Once Upon A Time, and The Librarians.

9. What are the things you wish you could draw better?

FUCKING HANDS. DAMMIT. Also dynamic poses, shoes, animals…

10. Summer or winter?

11. Rain or Sun?

Sun. (Child of Apollo at her finest.)

12. What's your favorite type of music?

I don’t have a favorite type. If it’s good, I’ll listen to it. I hate country, rap, R&B, and gospel though.

13. PC or Mac


14. Anime or Manga?

Anime. I find it easier to follow because occasionally I’ll forget to read right to left and get confused.

15. Coke or Pepsi?


16. Read or TV?

Here’s a kicker: when I first did this meme, I said read. Now I’m gonna say TV. I still love to read, but I haven’t had time to do so and it seems easier to binge-watch something.

17. How many hours a day do you spend on dA?

Depends on the day. I used to go 6. Now I’m lucky if I can go on for 15 minutes.

18. Name a talent.

I’m a jack of all trades, so it’s hard to just pick one. Singing I guess.

19. Flash or traditional cartoons?


20. What is your favorite fast food restaurant?

Wendy's and Chick fil A.

21. What are your top 3 favorite books (no mangas)?

Old Man’s War… the rest are series. Percy Jackson, Harry Potter. 

22. Wii or PlayStation?

Wii, but that’s only because we have one. If I had money, I’d say PlayStation. (Though the WiiU has Super Smash Bros and that’s my favorite game in the entire universe.) 

23. Name 3 of your favorite bands/singers.

Fall Out Boy, The Hush Sound, Maroon 5

25. Do you like Denny's?

Never been.

26. What is your favorite smiley?


27. What is your favorite type of pie?

MIXED FUCKING BERRY. (Dean’s List Pie is the best kind of pie.)

28. Have you ever stayed up for 24 hours?

The question is who hasn’t?

29. Do you go on dA a lot?

Not as much as I would like.

30. Are you a member on any other sites besides DA?

Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest…

31. Do you cosplay?

I’d like to! But I’m picky and only want to go as characters who look like me. I’m also in the process of losing weight, so once that’s gone I’ll look more into cosplaying.

32. Fruits or sweets?

Fruits. Sweets.

33. Buttered, plain, or salted popcorn?

Buttered and salted.

34. Have you skipped school?

High school? A few times I pretended to have really bad cramps. College? When I don’t feel like getting up. But I made Dean’s List, so you can tell it’s not very often. We’re allowed 3 free skip days.

35. Have you been on a plane?

Three times!

36. Have you swam in an ocean?

Atlantic and Pacific!

37. Have you been ice skating?

I’m not good at it, but yeah.

38. Favorite sport?

To play, water polo. To watch, hockey and baseball. But I don’t sports, so I don’t really watch them a lot.

39. Ever been on TV?

Well as Mac said, I was in a commercial, for Around the World in 80 Days, but I was also on the TV show Zoom once. The crew came to our girl scout camp and asked us to sing our favorite camp song. I sang “Herman the Worman.”

40. Favorite salad and dressing?

Salad: Caesar salad and strawberry spinach. Dressing: Raspberry and sun dried tomato.

41. What do you do to relax?

Draw, go on Tumblr, hang out with my friends.

42. What is the last film you saw in the theater?

Into the Woods. And it was AWESOME.

43. Favorite Sandwich?

The turkey avocado the restaurant I work at serves. It’s so good.

44. If you could go anywhere in the world…

Japan or England.

45. Favorite time of the day?

Right around dinnertime. It reminds me of lazy summer days.

46. What did you want to be when you were little?

Maggie…? My dad called me Pumpkin and my mom called me Mary Margaret. (Even though that’s not my name. She still does.)

47. What do you want to be now?


48. If you could eat with one person, who would it be?

J. K. Rowling. I’d like to hear more of her ideas of the Harry Potter world.

49. What character would you hate to be stuck in a room with?

My own? Calvin. We’d fight. I don’t get along with people like me.

Fandom? A Dalek. I’d die.

50. When is your birthday?

April 13, 1994.

51. Favorite type of ice cream?

Chocolate chip cookie dough and dark chocolate.

The Book Thief. Read it for class AND CRIED BUCKETS OF TEARS HAVE MERCY.

Sephora. I have deep rooted love for make up.  

54. Do you buy / sell / both on eBay?

I’ve bought some school books on eBay…

Water polo.

63. Favorite Day of the Year?

My birthday. October 21. I don’t know why. I’ve always loved that date. That’s why it’s Adele’s birthday.
