I just wanna be your lover
No matter how it ends, no matter how it starts

Forget about your house of cards
Fall off the table, and get swept under

— House of Cards by Radiohead


With their flipped images, high-ranking cards can represent duality, secrets, and— almost literally— a two-faced nature.

SamSara at it’s core is very much about secrets and what drives us to hide ourselves in a place where appearance and school hierarchy is really everything. This is a story about finding how to be honest, how to be vulnerable, and what brings out the best and worst in a person.



Ace of Hearts: The suit of hearts is ruled by Spring and Fire. It represent emotions, love, youth, and vulnerability. Aces represent the beginning, desire, and the individual. This is a passionate, optimistic card.

Sara represents the lowest and the highest value card, much like day and night. She’s dormant and withdrawn, sheltering a wounded heart- but shines brightest and is at her strongest when honest, heart exposed.

Queen of Diamonds: This suit is ruled by Autumn and Earth. Diamonds represent money, entertainment, responsibility, security, judgement, and values. This card is known to be a flirt and a gossip.

Blaire’s marionette strings represent the control she has over several different things, and the consequences of losing that control and freedom to puppeteer them, getting tangled in her own web.


Jack of Clubs: Clubs are ruled by Summer and Air. Clubs represent irresponsibility, youth, and intellectual growth. Jacks are the adolescent, the young boy. This card sometimes indicates a young, playful admirer.

Tammy’s emotions are young and theatrical, represented by masks. Masking her negative emotions suggests she cannot properly express them, confront them, but the dramatization of them will still keep attention on her.


King of Spades: This suit is ruled by Winter and Water. Spades is the suit of wisdom and maturity; they represent transformation, conflict, and acceptance. This card is an authoritative, ambitious, self-serving card.

Gwen is an ironfist; controlled and steadfast- much as a ruling King. But much like water against a stone, her resolve too can wear away and the self-preserving teacher finds herself worn thin after battle.

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:

:star: Tumblr Post Here! :star:

So I was REALLY excited Ava’s Demon was having a design contest… I’d wondered what mine would look like when I first started reading and now I had an excuse to design her! Yesss!! “ヽ(´▽`)ノ”

I really really really love themes and hidden meanings and the way the canon characters both match yet also foil an aspect of their demons. I really wanted my demon to represent both good, bad, and neutral things. So ok lets see how well I can summarize this oh gosh.



:bulletyellow: My demon’s name is Notimbia Apeiro!
Notimibia is an anagram of Ambition, and Aperio is from the Greek word Aperios/Apeiron, meaning infinite.
I struggle with my ambitions, anxiety, and self doubt- Ambition is a close word to me because it’s powerful and overwhelming. I drew myself with my hand on her arm because I’m afraid of her and her power, but I also depend on her. I liked how ambition is infinite like the galaxy, which I also associate with; So my irises are space-y blue-green with a stylized yellow star like a compass rose!

:bulletgreen: About her design…
I wanted her to be a condensed powerhouse- A supernova star, with a boiling core of energy and potential. Our element is light/lightning, which I figured was a good way to summarize all that “potential energy”. Light can be invigorating, but also unstable under pressure. When I’m drawing energy from her, I’d glow from my eyes/mouth/nose/hair. Then extreme situations would I start conducting electricity and zapping things (in the way that Ava’s extremes include vomiting lava and burning stuff!) The times I do let her “help” me, I get wired and go very fast. But afterwards there is a crash and a long period of fussing and being exceptionally jittery/nervous and reluctant to try again.

I’ve always associated with fairies, which is why my door is on my back where wings would be and are vaguely wing-shaped. Also, it’s incredibly hard to reach from its location, and equally hard to open because the handles are conductive. No pain no gain, right? Just need to be ambitious to open it...

For Notimbia, I decided to blend that into her (as some space fairy alien race) but also bring in something more sturdy than the bees and moths I usually liken myself to- So I chose a beetle; in the way her skin is sectioned, her serrated horns, and her multiple arms- which also double as a metaphorical “more hands = more opportunities"

I wanted a visual dichotomy of how she’s both masculine and feminine in the opposite way I am. Tall vs short, thick vs thin, strong vs petite, short hair vs long hair, multiple eyes vs bad vision, ambition vs apprehension. She has the strength to do incredible things, but as per terms of our pact she’s restrained by me, which is why her gauntlets are chained together. (But our pact was willing)

Also, I figure the inside of my mindspace would be like space and a surreal fantasy forest with a lot of liquid bodies of stars, space, fairy-type sprite beings, and glowy bits. A star forest!

If I had to pick a sin for her to represent… Ahh, it’s pretty hard. I’m personally most like Sloth (apprehension, inaction) but I feel like this would be best associated with Greed, as in constantly wanting to do more/be better/not being good enough. I’d have to spend days re-configuring how this design represents that though omg… I headcanoned that other demons that were an embodiment of an emotion or state of being were lesser forms of the sins- so not quite as high in rank, y’know? But yeah!

:bulletblue: About Notim!
Notim herself is a very ‘tough love’ personality. She’s ‘less talk more action’ and she can get very frustrated with the way I refuse to act when she would have. She’s confident, decisive, and impatient when I’m the opposite. She also a bit self-serving and unsympathetic of “distractions”, whereas I can’t seem to let little things go. She’s tried being cruel, parental, a teacher, and a drill sergeant with me- all with mixed results. She’s a bit reluctant to be outright gentle at first, but learns a little patience and kindness do go a long way in motivating her less-than-brave host.

When she wasn't a ghost, she was a warrior, a soldier, and a leader or general of some kind- She was moderately less exasperated and more… well, freely ambitious! She also enjoyed competitive alien sports. (Which naturally, I can’t even look at without getting nervous, nevermind participating in. She thinks I’m the most timid unmotivated space-lamb that she’s ever seen.)




And… I guess that’s everything I have to say! This was really really fun to think up and do research for. +__+ I feel satisfied! Thank you for reading if you did omg that was so verbose! Oh, and be sure to check out all the entries in the #ddcontest2k14 tag on tumblr, there’s some awesome stuff in there!

Sorry for random bare-bee-back gpoy shot hahaha.... *runs around shirtless and gets back to work now sorry sorry*
Thank you for the faves/watches/comments!! :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:

:bulletyellow::bulletyellow::bulletyellow: A unicorn of few words, LanternLight is content with the silence of the mysterious yet peaceful forest she presides over. She lives in a quiet cottage tucked away in a garden of the glowing flowers she grows throughout the wood to help guide travelers through it.


I was itching for an excuse to try doing more background work after I did the gravity falls piece in my style meme... and it ended up bein' poni-related, oooh! ( 。´∀`)ノ Lil' Lantern here is an OC pony I made a year or two ago but I don't typically post much of my pony work because reasons, but I really like how this turned out so *boops* up it goes! Lantern is a very quiet little guiding-light type of pony that never seems to be lost but is never entirely there either, very distant and thoughtful. u//u Other than gardening, she likes animals and exploring uncharted places-- and although she may end up wandering awhile she always finds what she's looking for eventually. She also really likes things that glow, so seeing her gently splish-splashin in puddles and ponds in the moonlight is not too uncommon!

Done all in sai last night, I binged on drawing until 5am ahahahah~
Thank you for the favorites/comments/watches :heart:
