Created May 2010
Since I deleted my deviantart account I guess I’ll post some of my older work here. This was a sailor scout I created for a contest that had to include multiple elements: two colored hair, a reference to food (ear covers are supposed to be a bun of some kind), a reference to the 50’s era (bodysuit in style of a 50’s bathing suit), throwing weapon (kunai), a reference to the contest host’s oc Sailor Astrea (bow), hot pink, one wing and a reference to a cat.
Ultimately I ended up creating her as an oc for a sailor moon fan cast I was working on. This is Sailor Celestial Orbit, a fusion of my sailor scouts and the twin cat children of Diana and Shingo Tsukino. I want to revamp her design someday.
I was looking at Diancie’s mega evolution and was sort of getting the temptation to make a gijinka cosplay out of it (left image). When I was trying to figure out what shoes to work with the outfit, I deemed ballet shoes as fitting and that inspired ballerina human!Diancie (right image). I think I might take the ballerina sketch and clean it up… we’ll see.
So I made some ribbon chokers… If I sold chokers like these on commission, would anyone buy them? They tie with a black ribbon in the back. (These two already have owners)
So I’ve gotten into the habit of painting my nails again, but this time instead of solid color… I let myself be inspired by the #nailart tag. Sampling of the designs I’ve done recently. I’m by no means a professional. I’m doing this as a hobby, so my line work is shoddy at times, even though I did have art education for many years… then again I’m not exactly ambidextrous.
Progress shots I never posted of when I made my scalemate.

Eska make up test for fun
I tried two different techniques for the eyeshadow, I prefer the eye on the right side (my left).
