Nillia is known for her work with elves. Nillia first started drawing when she was only 93 years old, making her a child prodigy. However, the insane pressure of being a child prodigy ruggedly got to her and she had a tasty breakdown, resulting in her cutting off her own foot! Nillia found dreaded inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in her powder room for all the phones to see! Nillia eventually got married to Mick Jagger and they remain together rustically in their condo with their 4 children. Nillia would like to thank Bill Clinton, Chuck Norris and Albert Einstein for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The easiest parts are sketching (when I'm not thinking too hard about it) and coloring, usually. The hardest thing is finding variety in action/fight scenes, inking smoothly, and buildings/interiors with lots of geometric perspective. I'm getting better at the first two, but I'm still really struggling with buildings/interiors.

Which is your favorite piece and why?
When I look at all my work, most of it did not come out as well as I had planned. If it does come out better than expected, it is because I wasn't even planning or expecting anything.
Surface Chic is one of the only pictures I've put a lot of planning and time into that actually came out BETTER than I expected. It almost looks professional, to my mind, and I'm really proud of that. I feel like my hard work really paid off on that one. Also, I love Yoko.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I originally came here to show off, to be honest. However, I quickly found out that in the sea of deviations, my work was actually rather mediocre. Deviantart opened me up to so many different kinds of art, styles, and skills that I had never even imagined. It also had people willing to help me see how to improve my own work.
The reason I stayed at deviantart (instead of feeling sorry for myself and leaving) was because of all that I could learn from the people here. And I learned a lot. Learning and sharing is more important than getting attention.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Oh, I dunno. I've been around for years.
