Naturally, for the part of the Nutcracker Prince and the Sugarplum Fairy, I had to cast actual ballet dancers- Rue and Mytho from Princess Tutu.  Mytho is already an actual prince anyway, and Rue wouldn't stand for anyone else getting a premiere part like the Sugarplum Fairy (also, in this one she not only gets her solos, but dances with the MLP gang in the Waltz of the Flowers) .  Costumes by me, poses by Google Images.

Nice! What was your inspiration for Mytho's uniform?

I kind of smushed together a few different designs I saw in photos, but it's been so long I couldn't tell you where I found them XD

I am so behind in my anime watching that I don't know who any of these characters are T_T It looks like you had fun drawing this, though!

I had a lot of fun drawing it, and I'm glad you like it!  BTW, El Hazard goes back to the 90's.

For how much?

It depends on the commission.  You can take a look at my journal, where I have some samples and general pricing to give you a rough idea.  Go ahead and send me a private note through deviant Art and we can discuss this in more detail ^_^

Here are my commissions. I want to see Princess Tutu:

1.Shoes are stuck in a yellowish glue trap.

2.Legs being wrapped around by vines.

3.And lastly, her shoes getting polished.

Eeee they're sooo lovely!  Their outfits are beautiful and I love how the music sheet for the Nutcracker Suite IS the background!
