A gown of sorts, this time inspired by the Monarch Butterfly (one of my favorites)!!:la: I wanted this one to look more regal and elegant so that it stays true to it's name!

Since I've been asked about medium multiple times, I'll just say here that this piece (along with the rest of the butterfly series and 95% of my gallery) was drawn completely in photoshop CS4 with a wacom tablet. The paper textures are added in afterwards for the traditional feel :aww:

Also, since it's already the 22nd where I am, happy thanksgiving to those who celebrate!!:tighthug: Here, have some virtual pumpkin pie! :pie: :chew:

I've entered a contest over at sketchstreet again! :D This time, the theme is 'tweed jackets'! (..hence all those tweed jackets XD.)

Edit!: Unfortunately I did not win this round, but the votes were pretty close and I'd just like to say a huge thank you to those who went over and voted!! :tighthug: It meant a lot to me! :,D

Here's a dress design, featuring human Toothiana! :love: She has such an awesome character design, how could I not? :la: Her color scheme was fun to work with, as was finding ways to incorporate the wings, plumage, etc! I read through Tooth's backstory and discovered she was originally Southeast Asian, which I tried to show here. :aww: The story was really interesting, but kinda made my heart all sad :C.. Somehow I didn't expect Tooth to have a dark history :ohnoes: I read her story here: [link] but beware of possible spoilers and sorrow..

On a more cheerful note though, I watched rotg yesterday and I loved it! :la: I felt that the plot pacing could've been better, but the character designs, overall theme, and ANIMATION just completely blew me away!! :,D Yeah.. I'm quite obsessed right now :T.. expect more rotg from me XD

I actually really love drawing super long flowing hair, if you couldn't tell already! XD Believe it or not, this started out as Marceline fanart, but I got carried away with the colors and somewhere along the way, she lost her clothes. Oops. :T So now I guess it's just a random drifting gal? xP

Also, a wip version of this design was used as our school's magazine cover! :aww: : [link]

Bookmarked/ tumblr'd here!: [link]

Here's Starling, a character from my story the Valiant and the Vain! :la: oh wow.. I should really update the plot O: Anyway, Short description time!!

Starling is Auberon's sister and although she had no involvement whatsoever with Auberon's wrongdoings, she was also cast under the spell. Instead of turning into a peacock during the daytime like her brother, she turns into a starling bird. Like the bird, she can very accurately mimic any sound/ action and uses it to her advantage (such as mimicking Felix's cry to lead Laurebelle to their fortress.) She later becomes one of Laurebelle's closest friends. Starling doesn't actually have wings by the way.. it's just metaphorical of what she morphs into :XD:

More backstory to VatV here: [link]

Also, I think I've decided to give all my characters their own little dremzle! :la: Because everybody needs their own dream guardian right? :D plus I just like drawing those cute fluffies ^.^ So the little floating creature is Starling's dremzle xD (more on dremzles here [link])

October, as you may or may not know, is breast cancer awareness month! So here's a sketch in honor of that. :aww:

My earliest watchers might remember my deviation to this cause from last year, in which I mentioned a friend of mine whose mother was fighting breast cancer. She was the one who made me aware of the campaign and I'm really glad to say that her mom had gone through with the surgery and is fine now! :,D There are however, many women who are still fighting, and although most people are aware of such a disease, most aren't of the early detection plans/ possible preventative precautions and such :T So if you'd like to learn more about the campaign or help with the cause, here's the website! I encourage you all to take a look see! :meow: [link]

About the drawing itself, hopefully the incorporated ribbon is obvious enough! At first it was going to be another one of my typical fashion sketches, but then I thought a different angle would look better ^^'

Here's another rotg inspired outfit, this time based off Nicholas St. North, just in time for Christmas! :D Apart from the original outfit, I also tried to incorporate elements from traditional Russian sarafans as well, with the puffy sleeves and patterned line going down the middle. I was extremely tempted to give her swords, but decided against it. XD
The extra sketches are just there because genderbent North looked a little lonely by herself, and what better company than elfie, Rudolf, and real!North? Besides, I didn't really want to upload them separately :T

Anyways, :iconreindeerplz: happy holidays everybody!! :la: I hope you all have a wonderful break! :tighthug: :iconreindeerplz:

Here's a quick sketch I did while taking a break from finals studying :T inspired by Disney’s Paperman short! :D Sadly, I haven't seen it yet, BUT I stumbled upon [link] , which shows an overview of the very interesting animation process, (a combination of both 2d and cgi animation!), and I got inspired anyway! :,D You should go watch it! Slightly confusing at first, but also super cool! :la:

But yes. I really wanted to design a Edwardian-esque outfit as seen in My Fair Lady, with those fabulous floppy hats and everything! :,D
