I have a condition known as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.  It can cause excruciating pain and it is progressive.  I have good days and I have bad ones.  I may log in every day for a month or I may go months without logging in.  Please forgive me if I don't answer you communications as quickly as I should.

I am in the process of uploading some of my older work from my old account.  These will be placed in a separate folder called formerly posted as ldymech and each piece will have the date of the original post.  If your stock rules have changed since the original post date and you find me in violation, please send me a note and I will work with you to fix the error.

My stock account


 You do not have to ask to use this stock, just follow the rules below.

1. If you utilize any of my stock, please link back to my account ldymech-stock or :iconldymech-stock: and link the stock used in your comment.  I seldom come to this account so please Note :iconpchesser: Send me a note and leave a comment on the stock you used and inclued a link to your work.  Please don't assume that I will know what deviation contains my stock.   Submitting a deviation without linking the stock is theft.

FAQ #81: How can I create links to other deviants, deviations, or websites?

2. You may use my stock on dA or outside of dA as long as it is for non-commercial use.  Deviant Prints are fine as long as you notify me.  

FAQ #217: What are "Stock and Resources" and can I use them in my submissions?

FAQ #8: What are violations of the DeviantArt copyright policy?

3.   My stock is not to be used in any art that depicts or suggests explicit sex, child nudity or animal cruelty.

FAQ #565: You prohibit the submission of 'pornographic imagery'; what do you consider this to be?
FAQ #12: DeviantArt doesn't allow 'Hate Art', 'Hate Speech' or 'Hate Propaganda', what is this?


5.  Do not use my stock to create stock of your own.

6.  Feel free to manipulate my stock in any way that you wish as long as it adheres to DA guidelines and you follow my rules.

Comfort by PChesser


Originally submitted as ldymech 8/16/2010



I have two pink magnolias in my front yard that are absolutely gorgeous for about two weeks then suddenly drop all their petals within a few days.  It's always a sad sight to see these petals fall like teardrops.  This was my inspiration for this piece. 




This was my submission to beginner manip-contest  "Maiden in White"  it won third place

Cold Rain by PChesser
Cold Rain

Cold Rain

 Originally submitted as ldymech3/19/2011



Don't I know you?
Haven't I seen you some place before?
You seem to be like someone I knew.
Yes he lived here, but he left
When he thought that there was more.

Than cold rain out on the street, I am all alone.
With cold rain down on my face,
I am heading home.
