Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays everyone! :holly:

I'm just gonna post this up now because it's finished- my other x-mas gifts will have to wait til' tomorrow.
This is for *Tyshea, aka my favorite person in the world. You might be outta town right now, but I can still spoil you rotten, right? 
pandas by Emoji-kun

These are her SalaDays OCs; Ash the vampire, Autumn the banshee, Mint the werewolf, and Ren the death god-- and the reason we met, more or less. I've drawn Autumn and Mint before here and there, but I think it was a good excuse to draw them all together. :'P Please accept this CYMK nonsense, my love.

Done in SAI in a day because I went crazy.
Thanks for looking, and for faving/commenting/watching! :love:

Hey guys! :wave:
Happy december! My thanksgiving was ~+*spectacular*+~, but now I return... with arts. ヽ( ★ω★)ノ

This was something I did over a period of a few months or so.. I wanted to thoroughly check how varied my skintones, hair-preferences, facial features, and naming conventions were to make sure there wasn't an imbalance of any one thing. I had a bad history of using pretty light skintones on just about everything when I started creating PoC characters, and I was worried that I still did it without thinking sometimes... but with that said, I'm pretty happy with the turnout of this! *waves tiny flag*

These are all main characters of various original stories of mine (ones developed enough to be drawn, anyway) but I can already think of three or more off the top of my head that I didn't include here because they're still concepts. *lays on side sadly* (I had to force myself to stop) This is also not counting like my pokemon gijinkas, since I haven't designed most of them yet either. Also no guys' version for now, though I plan on doing something fun with all my male identifying OCs sometime though! ;P If I can in the future (and don't outgrow this style by then, ahhh) I'll add more characters to this.

I also would very much love love to do more sets like these for my other WoC as well, but that relies on my free time. We'll see!

And now, a bulletpoints about each of them; starting at the center top with Charli and going clockwise! If they don't have links, I don't have a satisfactory drawing of them yet/this is their first updated debut. Please note not everyone is human... seems obvious enough? :XD: A lot of them are super-heroines, or magical girls. I won't be upset if you don't read it though ahahaha OTL/// /talks to self instead

:bulletred: Charli: [Asanbosam] She does slam poetry, enjoys beatnik culture, and adores caramel flavored beverages.
:bulletorange: Theodora: Dora is slightly reluctant magical girl, a history major, trans*woman, and a walking encyclopedia. Hardly ever smiles.
:bulletblue: Linette: From another time, a medieval knight-in-training that loves adventure and naturally inclined to help people. She falls in love with a grumpy witch.
:bulletpink: Natifah: Tiffy's trying to recover from her rough history. She loves nail art and cute makeup cases and her new unexpected boyfriend. She'd like to be a hairstylist if she could afford college. Abagael's younger sister.
:bulletorange: Trae: A short tempered tomboy with a lot of misplaced anger and a pretty rough life. A klepto and a pyromaniac. Is bestowed fire powers and dons the title "Salamander."
:bulletgreen: Shawntay: Shawn's a solitary, tech-savvy computer wizz who works at a computer parts shop- Discovers computer chips that give her cyber-mech abilities and armor. But what about the other chips? oooh!
:bulletpurple: Wynona: A laid-back, vain, intimidating beauty. Doesn't typically throw around her temper but is quite proud. She likes wine a little too much and it ends up giving her an ability she never expected.
:bulletblue: Irinora: [Giant from this fantasy race- her element is water.] She's a little scary and hardly ever seen, nevermind heard. Not much is known about her...
:bulletred: Teresa: [Apple Tree Hamadryad, "Monster High fancharacter.] She's very go-green and is also rather tall, at about 6'5".
:bulletyellow: Danica: [Lamia] her family is from Egypt. A fierce bellydancer and a bit of a maneater; good friends with Nadia.
:bulletred: Elise: Tormented by night-terrors, paranoid, and a little bit on the edge. Would really just like some friends. Can see "shadows."
:bulletpurple: Rorie: A quiet, to-herself person. Avid appreciator of music, oftentimes found with earbuds, plugged in. Has ice powers and knows how to use them, though.
:bulletorange: Sorrel: [eagle harpy] a steadfastly loyal friend, and a big sister personality. Very protective of those in her Nest, and proudly bears the law-enforcement position of Valkyrie.
:bulletblue: Jess: A New York ladykiller thrust back home to her dusty rural Texas hometown. Vain, proud, and smug as all get-out. She's half Spaniard.
:bulletblue: Kristyn: An extremely frail/ill girl but wise past her years. Has an endless fascination with astrology and gains superpowers from another planet.
:bulletpurple: Abagael: No-nonsense and street-smart. Intensely protective of her friends despite struggling with her own inner demons. Dyes her hair far too much, which inspired her younger sister Natifah to do the same.
:bulletpurple: Georgie: A quiet studious tomboy with a lot to say but not many friends to say it to. Can't see a thing without her glasses. Gets earth powers from a bashful but intelligent little mole.
:bulletgreen: Quinn: Japanese-American. Suffers from a little bit of bad luck, but works hard for her dad and little brother despite that. She's a stick that could use a good yank out of the mud.
:bulletyellow: Nadia: [succubus] Fashion-model in the making- sharp and intimidating as she is gorgeous, but she's honestly mild and relaxed about most things. It's just her intense face. Good friends with Danica.
:bulletblue: Belle: [TMM fancharacter] A to-be science major wholly invested in entomology. A bit of an oddball, lovely and eccentric, but probably more observant than what would make you comfortable to know.
:bulletpink: Avril: Grumpy gus cybergoth girl opinionated to her grave. However, she's levelheaded and her reasoning is sound if you can get past her bark and general meanness. Also gains superpowers from another planet.


:faint: ...Well, if you read all that, have a gold star. :star:
These were all sketched on paper, photoshopped together in bulk, and colored in SAI.

Feel free to let me know who caught your interest the most, I'd love to hear about it. :love:

It's time for cute rainbow things and magical girls! Wahoo! (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧

I did Watermelon (Whitney) on a whim in November, Blueberry (Belle) on the day before *Tyshea left California to visit me, and pumped the last three out in the last two days as stress relief. Apparently nervousness makes me productive. (ノ)´∀`(ヾ) I missed these guys and it was a good excuse to play with facial features and stuff and things.

Sparknotes for those who are new! :la: 

Tokyo Mew Mew is a magical girl series about five girls infused with the DNA of endangered animals, in order to protect the earth from an alien force threatening to pollute the planet into extinction and reclaim it as their own once more. It was the first manga I ever read and along with Sailor Moon on TV, it was the reason I started drawing seriously, so I have a huuuge soft spot for it and designing things for it. So these are my fan-characters I made a little bit ago. That post's a little bit old, but the information on it is up to date if you feel like reading it. :P Otherwise;

Monique, aka Mew Peach, has lion dna. She's a competitive femme-jock and the leader.
Keira, aka Mew Kiwi, has sea turtle dna. She's a handsome, smooth-talking surfer gal.
Peobe, aka Mew Plum, has rhinoceros dna. She's a quiet and introverted little prodigy.
Whitney, aka Mew Watermelon, has eagle dna. She's an uppity fun-loving firecracker.
and Belle, aka Mew Blueberry, has beetle dna. She's an elegant, dreamy, eccentric geek.

Do you have a favorite? :love:

:iconcuteheartz: Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!!  ( ˘ ³˘)♥ :iconcuteheartz:

HI EVERYBODY! It's been a while wow 8( The year is already going full-speed. Anyway I bring you PT valentine's, as I may have hinted at in the past few Ty-Livestreams :heart: Some of you might recognize that wee sammy chibi from a pt dump, which was actually for last year's V-Day that never came to be, haha orz/// This is what that was all about!

I tried to match an angel/devil theme to each of them based on personality, but make them all a little different if I could help it. I added some recent updates to some of their designs, it's been so long! Sammy's getting more sunkissed, Jess got a hearty update recently, and I'm trying to push Mona into the more pointedly curly-haired strawberry blonde redhead spectrum! More on that later though :P

I did all of these guys myself in SAI, and Ty did the composition and typography for me! //smooches for you :heart:
I hope everyone enjoys the sappy oneliners we thought up for all of them, WAHAHAH

Be sure to let your friends and family know how much you love them today! :iconawwloveplz:
Thank you for all the faves, comments, and watches! Which one do you like the most? :love:

HEY I'M BACK :la:
The move went pretty well! We only had a minor overcharge for the U-haul, the rain while we moved was generally pleasant and refreshing (we were sweating like pigs anyway right) and the unexpected third trip due to having the other u-haul place fuck up our order ended up being a blessing, because only heaven knows what mom would've been like behind the wheel of a 14 footer instead of a 10. I was clenching my buttcheeks in terror through the whole first ride.

ANYWAY ENOUGH ABOUT MY BUTT

RIGHT BEFORE WE LEFT I WATCHED WRECK IT RALPH? FINALLY?? TWICE???
AND EVERYONE KNOWS WHAT THAT MEANS

S~U~G~A~R
JUMP INTO YOUR RACING CAR

:iconexcitedlaplz:

So hi this is me
My name is mashup of lemonade + rebecca. Lemonade and keylime pie are two of my favorite desserts/treats... and since minty type things are far more popular, I decided to go with those. I LOVE SOUR THINGS! :dance: I'll probably draw up a car never later on... I'll call it The Cooler. 8-)

I think that's it, then. Glad to be back. Gonna go draw even though I should be cleaning my disaster of a (new!) room.

Drawn on paper, colored in SAI, fancy effects done in Potatoshop7, it took about forever. }:'|
Thank you for the comments, faves, and watches! :love:

oops ty did one :heart:

30 Day Magical Person Challenge List HERE


REBLOG EACH SET ON TUMBLR!
Set 1 (1-6) :star: Set 2 (7-12) :star: Set 3 (13-18) :star: Set 4 (19-24) :star: Set 5 (25-30)
:iconsparklesplz: ~+*ULTIMATE SEPTEMBER MAGICAL GIRL INTERLUDE*+~ :iconsparklesplz:

I ENCOURAGE ANYONE THAT WANTS TO READ THE BLURBS ON EACH OF THESE PIECES TO CHECK OUT THE TUMBLR LINKS ABOVE TO THE SETS.
That's where I rambled on about each of them more in detail. Characters featured here are 90% ones I already own that I've either revamped for this challenge or just cameoed for the fun of it, so if you recognize someone, that's probably why! *w*;

If you guys can't tell by now, the magical girl genre is my lifeblood. From random fan characters, assorted loose characters, or actual series Ty's helped bring conceptual life to like recently, this is one of those things I'm totally nuts for. I've wanted to do this challenge like crazy- far before the 30day Monster girls one, but I had to legit mentally prepare myself for it for a while before I could. OTL// I really like it when the genre is diversified, so things like super heroes and solitary heroines definitely feel magical girlesque to me, hence why some of these probably don't fit the frilly pink staple that is mahou shoujo. But yeah, I hope you guys enjoy this month long explosion of designing I did to kickstart my productivity again!

If you're interested, also check out my

30 Day Monster Girl Challenge!


Each was done in Paint Tool SAI on a 500x800 canvas with a tablet and lots of patience/endurance. I dunno how I survived. Text is added in PS7.

So guys, here comes the hard hitting question... :evillaugh:
TOP 5 FAVORITES ANYONE? And why? I'd love to hear your faves! :dance:

:iconyellowsparklesplz::iconpumpkinplz: Happy Halloween! :iconpumpkinplz::iconyellowsparklesplz:

I felt bad not posting anything today so I whipped something up real fast last night, wahaha. Just finished it, actually. All my X team are witch themed this time, so I thought it'd be appropriate for Halloween before I missed out. I could only manage to finish one in time though. @//w//@;

:iconbutterfly1plz::iconbutterfly2plz:
:bulletorange::bulletyellow::bulletgreen: Willowring :bulletgreen::bulletyellow::bulletorange:
Vivillon (High Plains) | Shield Dust | Calm | Likes to thrash about
She's a generally content bookish person by nature, but otherwise a restless busybee (busy butterfly?) that has trouble sitting still if she's not preoccupying herself with some potion or spell.

Done in SAI, text added in Photoshop 7. Lovely lace border from here!
Now I'm gonna go trick-or-treat on animal crossing, eat ridiculous amounts of candy and pastries, and watch b-flick scary movies with mom later. Hope you guys are having a decent Halloween!

:iconpurplesparklesplz::icongreensparklesplz:REBLOG IT ON TUMBLR HERE!

So there was this super great prompt floating around;
Draw Yourself as A Magical Girl by artofcarmen
You can also see her post here on DA!
All you have to do to participate is draw yourself *gender identity regardless!!!* and tag it as #magical girl art :D


SO! HECK YEAH I WANT IN ON THAT (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻
Then naf decided she’d give it a go too! so we did THIS and then she was like “LET’S PUT THEM TOGETHER” but I was like OH GOD MINE IS SUCH A SPARKLY ATTENTION WHORE THOUGH. ...but she MADE IT WORK ANYWAY LIKE HOLY WOW? :wow:

So her mahou-sona is actually the villain to my heroic :star: COSMIC MOTH! :star: self.
Sexual tension abounds. (you can also call me spacebug)

The prompt uses things we’re passionate about or like a lot to help figure out our outfits, so:
:bulletblue: Bee: Fairies, yellow/teal/cyan gradient, and shooting stars/space
(astrology but you wouldn't really see the constellations I was gonna put under my cloak so I’ll do it next time). I’ll think of a mascot pet later. @_@/)
:bulletpurple: Naf’s is based on Monochrome, Ninjas and FASHION. ..Also a panda. heh

I did mine in SAI, and Ty did hers in Photoshop CS5! And then she fancily merged them together there. :)
Thanks for all the faves/comments/watches! That's all for my magical girl interlude... for now. :paranoid: :heart:

:bulletpurple::star::bulletblue: Happy birthday, Stella! :bulletpurple::star::bulletblue:

Sorry I've been a little quiet this month! I've been working on something you all should get to see at the end of the month! :'P
I can't believe how much my stellababy's changed since her last b-day picture. Time sure flies when you're drawing your hands off... *waves limp hands* To be fair, all of the girls have been slowly growing, and I did draw her not too long ago for PT's second anni, but even in that amount of time she's grown.

I had a very specific idea for this picture (and I only regret how small the res is... *bonks self on head*) But I've always loved the fact StellaGale's story has a very obvious astrology/astronomy and nautical theme to it (in comparison to SamSara's day/night, sky/ocean theme) because I really love Stella being my little starlet.

A lot of things have been going on this year in terms of Ty and I's personal growth and ambitions as artists within the QUILTBAG/LGBTQA* spectrum, and we both decided something really important recently... When we first made this story we ourselves were still relatively new to the idea of being truly out... but our activism has shifted the way we've been handling issues and presenting our queer characters.

Stella has been a difficult character for me to work with because I've been keeping a major part of her story marked as a spoiler, so her development has suffered for it considerably. Both Ty and I have dropped hints about it before, but I think it's important at this point to be upfront about something very integral to their story.

We are completely aware that this may change some people's opinions or preferences for Stella or this couple, and for that, we are not sorry. I hope no one feels any differently considering we have plenty of similar characters in our galleries, but if you do change your mind, I would be pretty disappointed in you.

So without further ado; for her birthday, I'm going to share a more accurate summary of what StellaGale is about.

Arc 3: Stella & Gale
Gale, a masculine cis-gendered lesbian working as a tattoo artist and a small-time rockstar, leads the hopelessly heartbroken life of a bachelor and struggles with her watered down dreams. She crosses paths with Stella, an ambitious fashion-major trans woman who has just finally found courage in her ability to "pass" to try the lesbian dating scene instead of the safe-haven of gay men she'd been accustomed to but now is finding herself alienated in because of her changing identity.

They're a truly star-crossed couple, but they both realize that it takes a lot more to completely trust and commit yourself to someone while fighting your own inner demons and limitations as a human being.

Stella and Gale are about identity, gender, and what it means to be who you want to be.


And I think that should do it. :thanks:
Thank you for all the favorites, comments, and watches!
