"It is the time you have devoted to your rose that makes your rose so important…You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed. You are responsible for your rose…"  And there we have the key to understanding relationships. “Le Petit Prince” by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.  Birthday gift for my mom (she would read the story to me from her French edition). I even have a Petit Prince frame for it too, that I found at Goodwill, tho the colors are all wrong for the purple and pink that this wanted to be. Ah well. I still evaluate boyfriends by showing them the drawing in Chapter 1.

Some fanart for my favorite fantasy series. I’ve been wanting to do something for Garth Nix’s Old Kingdom Chronicles for years, tried when I first started getting into watercolors in college but that poor piece was overworked so much paper deteriorated and over all it wasn’t something I felt proud of. So I decided to wait till I felt I had progressed enough to do Sabriel justice…and I think I have.I still want to do a Mogget piece, so that could happen after holidays. Can’t wait for Clariel: Lost Abhorsen to come out. :B

Sabriel Cosplay Preview by ~Chikara-sanI was looking for some Sabriel fanart (and no, goddang it internet, not some Supernatural shipping fanart) and came across this cosplay. Made me absurdly happy to see a good cosplay of her.

Pretty early on in-progress preview shot. Excited to finish this. It’s only something I’ve been meaning to do, for like, a decade. :B

Zomg. Took a day trip to visit the Allentown Museum for the At The Edge show. It was pretty wild to see originals from Frazetta, Mucha, Rebecca Guay, Leyendecker, Brom, H. R. Giger, Frank Schoonover, Jeffrey Catherine Jones, Arthur Rackham…I could go on. And getting to see more work in person from Julie Bell, Boris Vallejo, and Donato Giancola was pretty cool (we saw them at work in person at the Society in NY last summer). I wanted to poke everything, but I controlled myself. 
It was also a nostalgic moment for me when I saw the original art for The Horse And His Boy illustrated by Roger T. Hane, who did the covers of the Collier-Macmillan editions of the Chronicles of Narnia books, which are the editions I grew up with. Anyone interested in fantasy or science fiction art should go check it out before it’s over, especially you peoples in PA. Go. Go. Go!At The Edge. And then we bought the show’s book, because we’re book nerds.

Just some old vectors I did, tweaked a bit for sticker design. If you were familiar with them before this you probably won’t really notice a difference, but I just fixed some stuff that was irking me.

I really do like the “Sprite” style I was using then, I should probably try to do a couple more like this, but consistent with the quality of work I’ve been doing.

Title: The Offering. When I originally started designing this I was thinking of a demon/vampire like monster but when looking for ideas for the background I ran across a public domain photograph of a stone Bull’s head/man beast, and I started liking the idea of tying this in with Greek Mythology. So maybe she’s a relation of the Minotaur. Or offering an unknown…something to him. Bigger here.Blood is difficult. :[ But I like what I finally came up with. It just took forever. :/

Since I haven’t posted anything about stuff I’m working on for awhile here’s a preview of one of the pieces I’m currently working on, (along with the next elemental piece, haven’t forgotten about that, it’s just hard for me to concentrate solely on a series). Not even finished the basic vector stage, taking longer then anticipated but hopefully it we be awesome enough to submit to contests.

This was very fun for me because it combines my love of jellyfish and red hair. :] It’s not supposed to be Ariel, just a redhead with green eyes who happens to be cool with existing with jellies in her hair.
