I have completed another deviation request for my friend Eric. Featured here is Minako Aino clad in an Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) gown.
Sleeping Beauty gown (c) Walt Disney. Minako Aino (c) Naoko Takeuchi.
- this is the 2nd time I'd be drawing Mina clad in a Disney girl character's outfit. The first one; she was in Alice's dress. - to be honest; I really don't know what sparkling thingies I'm gonna draw on her necklace and crown.
Page 13 of Kerry's Royal Shoes - a shoeshine themed manga for:
Queen Kerry Adarvez intends to confirm Arthur the shoeshine boy's fetish for women's footwear. She also wishes to see whether he can control his love or stay away from temptation.
- it's been a long time since I last posted new pages for Kerry's Royal shoes. The last time I did it was the end of january after I was hospitalized. - looks like I flunked at something. I forgot Sailor Mini Moon's choker in panel 1.
I have completed yet another giantess/shoeshine alt POV deviation for Eric's OC Danielle Adarvez right on time on her birthday. (whew!) I also did the same for her with the giantess/shoeshine last year.
- I had to make sure I don't disappoint that fine young lady on her special day. So I had to get this finished throughout the night. - if you look closely, my jacket's blue color clashes with her blue inner skirt. - I really like this... her shoes are blue, my favorite color.
Yeah i know it's been a long time you heard something from me or the other admins regarding the group. Originally this group was created to aid those who have trouble using photoshop. We asked a lot of advanced artists to share their knowledge or give useful tips, so we all could become better. But i think most of you do not need personal help with your work or need feedback.
For those who are interested in learning a quite simple way to achieve a painted look, i can recommend my tutorial i made recently. It's completely free of charge, i only want you to note me if you want to download the files. This technique is also useful to enhance the total look of your work.
Also for those you want to learn some new things, i can recommend to search youtube for tutorials about using gradient-maps. I always use at least one gradient-map in my work and often 2 or more to get the mood i want.
I also am starting a new contest called : "CURSES AND WISHES". Maybe you have seen my work "midas Touch" which i recently submitted. It is a based on the curse of the greek king Midas, who could turn everything into gold by touching it. So be creative and make a work which is based on a curse or a wish. Some suggestions:
a reaper's boat picking up some wandering souls that did not follow their reapers before, and crossing over to the other side. the boat has the moon as it's source of light, and trails of fog and clouds to hide the boat. the boat color is dark so it won't be easily seen on night skies. every night the boat slowly moves across the sky as the moon moves across the sky. if the remaining souls never follow the reapers they will eventually become ghosts.
James smiled stroking his beard as he looked in his PO box. It had finally arrived! The package was large, and aptly so! It was a commission from the legendary craftswoman Mermaidlover86 on deviantArt. She was a master at crafting mermen/maid tails. James saved up for almost a year with a part time job so that he could afford a commission from her. He saw others, and theirs looked wonderful!
The college senior opened the package carefully with his pocketknife to not damage it, and could barely contain his excitement as he looked down on his very own merman tail! He had always loved the ocean and was fascinated by everything in it, including merpeople. He had embarrassing memories of wishing that he could meet a mermaid, and hoped he found one whenever his family went to the beach. Now that he reached his twenties the magic of such things have diminished; however, he could still enjoy such things as much as anyone else has their own guilty pleasures.
This tail was everything he asked for. Sure, she sent him pictures, but he could now pick it up and hold it to admire the artisanship. The red scales had a regular pattern but a keen observer could see the artistic additions such as a scale shorter than the others here or a recessive bluer scale there. Each slight imperfection mirrored real fish enough to give the work a life of its own! He laid the tail on his bed and searched the box for anything else.There was a note beneath the tail written in flowing cursive.
Thank you for your commission! I had so much fun making it.
If you ever need any help concerning it, call my business number 1-800-546-5000.
Enjoy with many blessings,
This will be perfect for his pirate merman costume! He already recruited his roommate to wheel him around the party, and maybe he could pick up a girl to wheel him out. He remembered all of the times as a kid that he dressed up as a pirate thanks to Disney’s Captain Hook. He even made sure that his younger brother, Elijah, had an interest in pirates. Well, Mom did not have to draw a moustache beneath his nose anymore! Now he had his own and only lament that he cannot connect it to his chin beard for the full on goatee! Although, being a lifelong pirate fan has its perks. He already had his own jolly roger prepared on a wooden pole so he could wave it around as he said his “Arrrs”, and much more importantly, a classy tricorn hat with feathers. He red multiple books on historical pirates and the romanticized, one could argue it’s why he was a history major in college now.
Enough diversions, James decided it was time to do the deed and try out the tail. It will likely have the flaw of all tail costumes: the feet with be noticeable near the fins. He put is phone aside on his bed. Next, he took off his shorts, left his shirt and boxers on, and then took the merman tail. He stuck his hand down the hole where the feet were supposed to go. It felt soft inside as if it was made from something different that the firm outside layer that the scales cut into. The hole could also open up wide so James could stick his legs in without too much effort. So, James put it on the rug on the floor lamenting really how there was no way to do with without it getting dirty.
James slipped his legs into the tail. It was a bit cool at first but the material insulated his body heat well so the inside warmed up fast. He slid his feet to the tip of the tail easily pulling the waistline up to his like a pair of pants. They covered his boxers well. Satisfied, James tried to take the tail off so that he could get some candy for the party, but his fingers couldn’t get between the tail’s material and his skin.
“What?” James said confused, “she wasn’t kidding when she said the thing would look convincing with how skin tight it was! How am I supposed to-”
Suddenly, a strange feeling washed over him like bubbles rising up within him. All of his hair from the waist up disappeared as if it was never there execpt for the hair on his head which lengthened to past his shoulders. He watched in terrified curiosity as his body slimmed to more feminine proportions. There was a strong pressure under the tail that drew his attention there. His feet, knees, and heck his legs felt like they were dissolving… the scales started to glisten like a fish’s… The tail was clearly no longer a costume; it was seamlessly a part of his anatomy now!
James gasped, but then covered his mouth. He sounded more like a she! To top it off, his t-shirt rustled as unmistakable breasts popped into existence. They were modest sized, and she… wait why was he trying to rationalize this!? He, and well with the costume making him a she, now had breasts! Where was a panic button when you needed it?
She rolled over, wincing at her new additions jiggling some as she did, to try and reach her phone. She pushed her pesky new long hair out of her eyes as she wormed her way closer to her bed where the phone rested. Maybe she could call Mermaidlover86 since she made this accursed thing, or maybe- She froze and glanced to the door terrified when she heard it open. Her roommate stared slack jawed at what was on their floor. It was clear that he did not recognize James.
Southern Britain, where present day London is located, during the period of the cold late Pleistocene, known as the Wurm stadial.
A tense encounter between two massive Cave bears, each weighing 1000 lbs or so, roughly equivalent to well grown male Kodiak brown bears in size, and even more formidable, an archaic subspecies of the polar bear, Ursus maritimus tyrannus.
From front to back:
Two Cave bears Tyrant Polar bear Woolly rhinos Woolly mammoths Rein deer
Throughout the harshest period of the Wurm stadial, both Britain and Ireland were connected to the continent via land bridges and were in so called periglacial condition(probably similar to today's Hudson bay area, Alaska) where even the polar bear is believed to have once roamed.
The polar bear is a very young species and these ancient variants are believed to have still somewhat retained ancestral brown bear elements. They most probably be larger on average than modern day Polar and Kodiak bears.
Fossil distribution of the cave bear is mainly centered on the central Europe, but in the Eemian inter-stadial and Wurm stadial, its northern most European ranges included southern England. Britain thus probably be the only locality where distributions of three Eurasian ursids of the Ice Age, the cave, brown and polar bears were overlapped.
Britain during the Wurm stadial was also a home to other representative Ice Age mega fauna, most notably Woolly mammoths, Woolly rhinos, Megaloceros deer, rein deer and musk ox.
Hey, everybody. It's been a while since I've made any dolls, but here's a new one I made. This is one of the 3 Starlights that I made. First up is Sailor Star Fighter, aka Seiya Kou. This was one of the first dolls I made using Verdy-K's frontview base.
Credit goes to Verdy-K for her frontivew base that I used, and also her Starlight template, and also SSMU for the hair, earrings, tiara, and headset. Oh, and the colors I used to make it, as well.
My own version of Princess Serenity or Neo-Queen Serenity from Naoko Takeuchi's Materials Collection ^^ I always loved this sketch of her, it's a shame that it did not make into one of the artbooks. I have a lot of SM sketches and concepts lately, maybe I can finish a few in the near future, I have a SM Crystal screencap re-draw in progress too :3

Scouting out the area for attractive men pure hearts! Whoops... my friend didn't tell me that my phone was in my pocket when he was taking my photo. Oh well! You can at least see the coat yokes that I nearly destroyed my hands on! This was my first time working with interfacing, creating buttonholes, and inserting lining into a garmet, let alone making a fully functional coat! All of the hard work sure paid off though! I won my first costume contest with this cosplay. The costume took about 6-8 hours a day for a month (some procrastination was involved) to complete. This includes tasks such as dying the wig, inserting wire into the scarf, making shoe covers, and creating the cormorant sticker for the briefcase.
P.S. On the left side of the photo, you can see that I am wearing Eudial's slippers. Thank goodness for slippers! My feet started killing within the first few hours of the convention, so I ended up wearing the slippers most of the time in what I called "snail trolling" mode.

Eudial is going down and apparently so are my shoes. I apologize that the back coat yoke button and belt loop are not visible, but I swear they are both there! The scarf is just in the way.

One nice day, things were very peaceful. Well, not everything was peaceful at Naru's house. Naru was busy pacing around her living room, writing down in her day-planner book. She was still wearing her pjs and bunny slippers. Today was going to be a busy day for Naru because she has lots of events scheduled today and she wanted to be on time for everything. Naru: *pacing back and forth* "Lets see. At 9:30am, I have to go grocery shopping with mom. 11:00am, I meet Alice for brunch. 12:15pm, spend time with grandma. 2:05pm, go to work and fill the day shift, which should take about 4 hours if I'm correct. If possible, I should be able to get back home to get dressed for Angel's school play, which should start at 7:00pm." Naru started getting dizzy from thinking too hard. She flops down on a chair and wipes her forehead. Naru: "Phew. Good gosh. Today's gonna be so busy today. I barely have time to breathe." Suddenly, Naru shot up and looked at the living room clock. Naru: *panicking* "Ahh! It's already 8:30am! I gotta get dressed!" Naru sprinted up the stairs in about 5 seconds. She bolted into her bathroom and turned on the shower. Jumping in, Naru scrubbed her body with soap, and washed her hair with shampoo and conditioner. After rinsing off all the suds, Naru dried herself off with a towel and styled her hair into a ponytail. She then ran into her bedroom and through on a pink shirt that had a sparkly star on it and blue jean shorts. Naru grabbed her purse, cellphone, and day-planner and ran downstairs. she grabbed her car keys and sprinted to the garage. Her car, Elsey, is a cute little pink car with whitewall tires. Naru loved Elsey and took very good care of her. Naru went inside Elsey and started her engine. Elsey sputtered for a bit before coming to life. Looking at the fuel gauge, it showed Elsey had 3/4 of a full tank. Naru: "Hmm. You have enough gas in your tank Elsey. I'm sure you'll be ok." Naru backed out of the garage and drove down the street. As she was driving, she spotted Daisy at her house. Daisy was dressed in a light blue tank top with a yellow flower on the front, wearing yellow shorts, and happily giving her car Florela her weekly bubble bath. Naru parked Elsey along the curb and stepped out. Naru: "Hi Daisy. Whatcha doing?" Daisy: *scrubbing Florela's wheels with a soapy sponge* "Hi Naru. I'm just giving Florela her weekly bubble bath. How are you?" Naru: "In a hurry. I need to pick up my mom from her house cause she needs help grocery shopping." Daisy: "Ah. I see. Well I shouldn't be keeping you. Have fun." Naru: "You too." Naru walked back to Elsey and sat inside the car. She turned the key and Elsey's engine cranked and struggled to start. Naru rubbed Elsey's dashboard, coaxing her to start. Naru: *pumping the gas and turning the key* "Come on sweetie. Please be good to me. Pretty please." Naru turned the key again and Elsey's engine sputtered to life. Naru clapped her hands and patted the dashboard. Naru: "Good girl Elsey." Shifting gears, Naru drove down the street while Daisy went back to washing Florela. About 30 minutes later, Naru arrived at her mom's house. She beeped the horn twice and her mom walked out of the house and got in Elsey's passenger seat. Naru: "Hi mom." Mom: "Hi sweetie" *gives Naru a kiss on the cheek* "Ready?" Naru: "Yeah. All set." Naru backed out of the driveway and the two made their way to the store. Moments later, they had finished their shopping and Naru drove her mom back to her house. Mom: *stepping out* "Thank you so much Naru." Naru: "You're welcome mom." Mom: "Are you going to your cousin Angel's school play tonight? It starts at 7:00pm." Naru: "I remember. I'll see you there." As mom walked in the house, Naru backed out of the driveway and drove onto the street. As she drove, Naru was talking to herself. Naru: "Ok. Grocery shopping with mom. Check. Now it's brunch with Alice. And it's only 10:12am. I'm ahead of schedule. This is great." Suddenly, a loud bang was heard that scared the jeepers out of Naru. Naru: "AHH!" Naru suddenly pulled over to the side of the road and stopped. Breathing heavily, Naru tried to calm herself down from the sudden experience. Naru: "What... the heck... was that?" As she was thinking, a hissing noise could be heard. Naru listened and knew what it was. Naru: "Oh no." Naru exited Elsey and went to the front of her car. There sat Elsey with her front right tire completely flat. Naru: "Awwww. Poor Elsey. Are you ok sweetie? Don't worry. I'll get you feeling better again." Naru got back in Elsey and cranked her to life. She drove back onto the street. Elsey's flat tire flopped along the road and Naru had to work hard to keep her in a straight line. About ten minutes of flopping later, Naru finally reached a gas station. She pulled up to the repair bay, where a mechanic saw her. Naru got out and spoke to the mechanic. Mechanic: "I see you blew a tire." Naru: "Yeah. How fast can you fix it?" Mechanic: "Should take a few minutes. Bring it on in the bay." Naru got back into Elsey and turned the key. Elsey's engine once again struggled to start. It took Naru three tries to start Elsey, but she managed to drive into the repair bay. Parking Elsey, Naru got out. Naru: "Mr. mechanic. If you don't mind, could you have a look at my engine too please? It's been acting like this today." Mechanic: "Sure thing ma'am. I'll have a peek." Naru left the mechanic to do his work while she went inside the little station store. She had to use the bathroom. Then she bought herself a bottle of water and went back outside. She met the mechanic, who was looking at Elsey's engine. Naru: "Did you find the problem?" Mechanic: "Hmm. I think your igniter is getting worn out. I can replace it." Naru: "Ok." Another five minutes went by. Soon, Elsey's tire was replaced and the two were back on the road. Naru looked at the time. Naru: "Oh man. I'm going to be late for Alice. Unless the traffic's good." The traffic was good, and Naru made it to the restaurant on time. Parking Elsey, Naru walked inside and found her best friend Alice. Alice: "Hi Naru!" *hugs* Naru: "Hi Alice!" *hugs* Alice: "I'm so glad we get to do this together." Naru: "Yeah. I hardly made it here on time. One of Elsey's tires blew out, so I had to take her in to get better." Alice: "Awwww. Poor Elsey. She's glad to have a caring owner like you." Naru: *smiles and blushes* "Thanks." Naru and Alice enjoyed brunch together, talking about their cars and cute boys, and other girl things. After brunch, Naru and Alice said goodbye to each other and went on their way. Naru was driving down the street, headed towards her grandma's house. Naru: "Ahhh. That was the best brunch I've ever had. Alice is right. We should do that again." Twenty minutes later, Naru drove down a country trail that led to her grandma's house. Since there was a rain storm yesterday, the trail was pretty muddy and slippery. Naru struggled to keep Elsey on the path and away from the mud holes. Naru: "Come on baby. You can do it. Stay on the path." Naru managed to reach her grandma's house without getting Elsey stuck, but Elsey's whitewall tires were a bit muddy from the muddy path. Naru got out of Elsey and walked to the house. She rang the doorbell and was greeted by her aunt. Aunt: "Hello Naru!" Naru: "Hello." Naru walks inside and finds her grandma sitting on her chair knitting. Naru: "Hi grandma." Grandma: "Ohh Naru sweetie. How are you?" *gives Naru a hug and kiss* Naru: "I'm doing good. I have a busy day today, but so far, everything's been going according to plan." Grandma: "Oh that's nice dear. Are you hungry?" Naru: "Oh no no no. I just had brunch with my friend Alice." Grandma: "How is she?" Naru: "She's doing great. We chatted together and had fun." Naru's visit with grandma lasted from 12:15pm up to 1:05pm. Giving grandma a hug and kiss goodbye, Naru left the house and headed back to Elsey. She noticed her slightly muddy wheels from the trail. Naru: "It's okay Elsey. I'll give you a bath tomorrow." Naru got in Elsey and started her engine. Thanks to the new igniter, Elsey started up without a hitch. Naru made a U-turn and drove back down the path. Along the way, Naru was fighting the mud to keep Elsey moving forward. The drive didn't last long when Elsey suddenly lost control and both Naru and Elsey ended up driving into a mud hole. Naru hit Elsey's gas pedal, but the mud was so slippery that Elsey's rear wheels couldn't get any traction. Naru kept trying by switching gears from reverse to forward and back to reverse and then forward again, but Elsey didn't budge one inch. Her wheels were now very muddy and some of the mud ended up on Elsey's sides and fenders. Naru took off her shoes and socks and stepped out, the messy mud squishing under her bare feet. Naru: *disgusted by the mud* "Ew ew ew. So muddy." Naru went to the back of Elsey and tried pushing, but Elsey was too heavy. Giving up, Naru went back into Elsey and called her aunt for help. Naru: "Hi Gloria. It's me Naru. Can you do me a huge favor? My car is stuck in a mud hole and I can't get it out. Can you come help me please?.... Great. Thanks. See you soon." *hangs up* The time now was 1:45 and it took another 5 minutes for Gloria to arrive. Naru: "Thanks for coming." Gloria: "No problem. I'll have you out soon." Using a rope and her car, Gloria managed to tow Elsey out of the mud. Naru: "Thanks Gloria." Gloria: "You're welcome Naru." Naru got back into Elsey and the two took off down the path. She managed to get back onto paved roads without getting stuck again. Naru looked at Elsey's gas gauge and saw it was below 1/2 full and close to the 1/4 point. Naru: "Hmm. You still have plenty of gas left Elsey. We can make it." Naru then looked at the time and saw it was 2:00pm. Naru: *gasp* "Oh no! I'm gonna be late for work!" Naru accelerates Elsey faster and she drives back to the city. Sadly, Naru doesn't reach her work building until around 2:20pm. Naru parks Elsey and runs inside. Her job is being a lab secretary for scientists. Although she's not as smart as the genus scientists, she knows her way around a desk. Her organization skills come in real handy for handling important files, scheduling appointments, and keeping things in order. Luckily for her, Naru went to her desk without getting into trouble. She sat down and looked at her planner again, making check marks as she went. Naru: *breathing heavy from running* "Okay. Lets see. Grocery shopping with mom, check. Brunch with Alice, check. Visit to grandma, check. Now the only things left are to work here and then it's off to Angel's school play." Naru put away her planner and went to work. Organizing papers, taking phone calls, sending out messages. Naru's job was pretty easy since she was great at keeping on track. Hours passed by and finally, Naru's shift was over. Punching her time card out, Naru made her way back downstairs and out to the parking lot. She got in Elsey and started her engine. Naru: "Phew. I am exhausted. I wish I could go home and relax, but there's one last thing I need to do." Naru drove away from her work building and back to her house. She got out and went upstairs to change from her current outfit into a nice ruby red, knee-high dress. Naru also put her hair into a cute bun and had a jeweled hair clip on. Finishing with makeup, Naru wore red heels and went back to Elsey. When she started her engine, the needle was now bellow the 1/4 point, but Naru didn't notice. She backed out of the garage and went back into town. Arriving at Angel's elementary school, Naru parked Elsey and went inside. The theater was packed with people, but Naru found her family and sat by them. The lights went out and the curtain opened. The play Angel's school was preforming was "Cinderella." Boy narrator: "Once upon a time, there was a lovely family. A father, mother, and their beautiful girl. One day, the mother got very sick and died. So the father married another woman, but this woman was really mean to Cinderella. Years later, the father died from the same sickness as the mother. Poor Cinderella was left all alone with her evil step-mom and step-sisters. They made her do all the chores and took away everything she had." The lights come up to a set of the inside of Cinderella's house. Angel played Cinderella and was dressed in her dirty, rag outfit. Three more girls entered, playing the mom and sisters. Their clothes were much better looking. Mom: "Cinderella! Why are you still here!" Angel: "I was scrubbing the floor like you asked me too." Mom: "Well you're too slow. We've been waiting for our breakfast for a whole five minutes!" Sister #1: "Yeah! Just because you live here too doesn't mean you can be lazy!" Angel: "I'm sorry. I'll get started right now." The play lasted about 2 hours, filled with happy, sad, and funny moments. When the show ended, Naru, her mom, dad, aunt, and grandma praised Angel for a fantastic performance. Soon, Naru was headed back to Elsey and got in. She turned the key and Elsey started up with a sputter and cough. Then she drove back onto the street. Naru: *relaxing while driving* "Phew. What a day. Thank you Elsey for helping me" *kisses Elsey's steering wheel* As soon as Naru kissed Elsey, Elsey's engine started to sputter and cough. Her speed was slowing down as she coughed more and more. Naru: "Huh? What's the matter sweetie? Are you feeling ok?" In response to Naru's question, Elsey gave one last cough and sputter before coming to a stop. Naru turned the key and pumped the gas pedal, but Elsey's engine only cranked, sputtered, and coughed. Naru kept trying to start Elsey. Naru: *trying to start Elsey* "Oh come on Elsey. Please start for me. Pretty please sweetie pie." After countless attempts to start up Elsey, with no success, Naru gave up because her engine was getting weaker and weaker to the point where nothing would happen. A light came on the dashboard and she knew why. Naru: "Awww. You're starving. I guess I was too busy today to feed you. Oh well, at least we made it through the day." Naru called her friend Daisy and asked her to help them. Soon, Daisy and Florela were towing Naru and Elsey back to her house. Naru and Daisy pushed Elsey into the garage and the two girls said goodbye for the night.
In this story, Naru has a very busy day filled with lots of different activities. Naru tries to stay on schedule, but there are a few bumps in this journey. In fact, Naru's so busy, she doesn't pay much attention to Elsey's gas tank. Will Naru make it through the day before Elsey's tank is empty? Find out in this edition of Naru and Elsey's Adventures.
This drawing was an artistic collaboration between two of my friends my university, Leidy Avellaneda and Sonia Parra and me.
Leidy started with the body shape bases and proposing the concept with the girlīs pose for the drawing. Then Sonia continued giving it the basic forms of the girlīs hair and clothes. And I finished this artwork by drawing the details on what they gave me and giving it a background according to the concept.
I HOPE YOU LIKE IT!
Please comment your toughts on this artwork, my friends and me would apreciate your opinions. ^_^

Boy this was a doozy. I sort of underestimated the sheer size of this one, not really considering this when setting out the thumbnail options for this piece. In some ways I wish we could get a closer look at the girls, but the distance of the scene is nice too. It's nice to see so much, but the tradeoff is that we're so far away. It's sometimes too bad we can't have everything, ne?
I was thinking about what said about the previous ones: how the gel restraints, while nice, looked a bit like they could slide right off. I had to agree... to some extent. So this time I took the details and blurred it a little, trying to make the restraints look "stickier" and less slick. I think the result is really nice!
This piece really was, to me, a practice in textures. The texture of the conveyor belt vs the hard plastic "strapping tables". Trying to make Anna's shoes look like suede or a rich velvet, while having Val's shoes "polished" up to the patent leather. And the little puffs of exhaust coming out fo the machines, I think look nicely shaped.
I suppose if I had a critique, it might be the style of the eyes for Sally and Anna, but it was a tradeoff I had to make. Since we're so far away, the expressions needed to be exaggerated enough that it could still read from a distance.
What I like most about this is all the little bits of story and narrative we get. You could really look at this piece for a while and maybe still not get it all. Each of the robot's interactions with each of the girls. The costumes under glass. There's something just... fun about it.
Hopefully the next one around we can get a closer look at our damsels ^_^
