Hello there everyone :) My name is Anne Stokes and I work as a freelance illustrator. My artwork has been used on many products including books, games, t-shirts, posters, jigsaws, sculptures, greetings cards and jewellery. I love the world of fantasy and being able to share my ideas and characters with other people through my art.

I post here on DA under the name Ironshod. Thats is a long story, but it seemed like a good idea at the time and now I'm kind of stuck with it ;)

I hope you will enjoy looking at some of the artwork in my gallery. DA is a great place with so many other creative and interesting people to talk with. Sometimes I do get rather a lot of messages and I am afraid I can't answer then all, as then I will have no time to paint new pictures! I do appreciate everyone who takes the time to comment.

Current Residence: UK
Favourite style of art: Fantasy

Dear Anne Stokes,

Your work captures fantasy superbly. I write fantasy and would like to use your "Crystal Ball" for a cover with your permission. I will give you credit and of course send you ebooks that I write.

A wrong has been righted and I should have added you to my watch list back when I discovered Silverback around back in 2012.  You have beautiful work here. (:

Your work is breath taking. I would like, with your permission to use your Ice Dragon Image for a custom Magic the gathering card. Your art will get full credit, and I'll even email you a copy of the finished product, which you can post here. As thanks for your permission all watch you and give a llama as well. Thank you for your time.

You are among my favourite dragon artists, and I have lots of merchandise with your artwork on it! In your pictures of dragons with girls or elves, you portray their friendship brilliantly.

Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!

I got that from a friend and now am spreading it amongst some friends.
