uhhhh wowie hi new watchers! I might not be able to reply to every comment on that style meme, but I really appreciate all the comments and how much everyone enjoyed it hoooly hell :heart:

Anyway! You can call me bee, nice to meetcha! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ Tyshea is my SO and we've been writing a lot of stories together for over five years so you'll probably see me mentioning her work a lot it's because most of them are collaborations between us. We do a lot of original projects so if you came here hunting for more fanart based off my style meme you might be a little disappointed, I'm sorry to say!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy my work otherwise!



I was just going to toss this up real quick because ty posted a solaris dump (which atka belongs to yessss) so it seemed like an appropriate time to do so! This was originally just a practice piece because I don't draw my guys as often as I should and he got a universe change recently; I probably draw him younger looking than ty does but it still turned out nice... So, here you go!

I haven't posted any new work yet for Solaris so my gallery folder for it is a bit dusty for the time being, but you could definitely *should totally* check out Ty's solaris gallery

done in easy paint tool SAI, thank you for the comments, faves, and watches! :heart:

: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*

sketchduuuump tiiimeee!!! :party:

an accumulation of doodles and sketches throughout the year. white outlines is a slice of life about a supernatural high school within Tyshea's SalaDays universe! Dramedy and romance abounds! WHIPPIE! A couple characters got redesigned or updated but when am I NOT doing that (I-I'm sorry. Kinda. I try to point it out when I do at least so no one gets horribly lost HAHH) It's okay if you just wanna look at the art though because it's not a wholly active project right now, heh!
Not much to say that isn't already said... tried to keep my commentary more simple this time I keep finding old commentary on dumps that makes me cringe LMFAO

see the main characters of this story here:

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.

RAAAH ANOTHER SKETCHDUMP. I'm sorry that I've been on such a kick with this project lately, but hopefully I'll be able to focus on other stuff again soon (like PT oh my god my muse is all over the damn place)

On the topic of gender neutral pronouns and why we decided to choose it:

Solaris is heavily inspired by the Avatar cartoon series, that being a Wuxia, pan-Asian setting. Me being Chinese American and all, really wanted to put some of my culture into this project, and Mandarin as a language doesn't make any distinction between "him" and "her" (except when it's written, and I'm pretty sure the gendered third person pronouns are more of a modern invention)
Since me and Bee are also putting a lot of Queer/LGBTQIA+ themes in it, I'd been playing with the idea of using gender neutral pronouns for everyone, and Bee was really excited about the idea. So basically in Solaris, he/she pronouns don't exist in their language.

As a note for anyone who might get confused or have a hard time transitioning, it won't necessarily be insulting for you to use gendered pronouns when referring to characters, and sometimes you may catch me and bee doing it too. SO please don't worry! It's not really about the character's identities so much as their culture. Basically we'll still use man/woman/guys/ladies, etc etc... just no "he/she" or "his/hers"

The pronouns we'll be using will be they/them/theirs, and sometimes the abbreviated "em" (inspired by the Spivak pronouns)

WHOO, HOPE THAT MADE SENSE, sorry for the long explanation, but feel free to ask for more detail!


Hope you enjoyed the dump! :icontearplz:

HAPPY FUCKING 24TH BIRTHDAY TO MY WONDERFUL PARTNER OF 5 YEARS, Ai-Bee!

24 is a big year in Chinese astrology since it represents the second cycle of your life (it goes in 12-year cycles based on each animal), so I wanted to do something EXTRA BIG FOR YOU.
Since Kye and Rilu were our first legit OCs together, knowing they’re getting their own story means a lot to me. IT ALSO MEANT A HUGE PROMO ILLUSTRATION, OF COURSE.

I HOPE YOU ENJOY, HERE'S TO MANY MORE BIRTHDAYS TOGETHER!



For those who don’t recognize the characters, they used to be our Avatar: the Last Airbender OCs, but we’ve transplanted them to their own original cyberpunk universe and will be fleshing out the story and world eventually! You can see more here!

CHECK IT OUT ON TUMBLR WITH A BUNCH OF OTHER GIFTS
