Lady Sakura and Lord Syaoran by wishluv Lady Sakura and Lord Syaoran by wishluv
Happy Halloween 2012!!!

Kinomoto Sakura and Li Syaoran from Card Captor Sakura, dressed up in pseudo-Victorian style clothes.

I wanted to draw a fun Halloween CCS picture but I came to a realization that that the CCS crew always dress up in costumes so Halloween is not all to different. In the world of CCS, at least for Tomoyo, every day is Halloween. If I begin 20 pictures, I might finish 1. I didn't have a lot of time at all because of work, but it's been a long time since I did any sort of linework at all ever since I sprained by middle finger, but since I was drawing something I enjoyed, I was able to finish it pretty quickly and rather thoughtlessly.

I wanted Sakura not to be smiling (usually it's the other way around. Syaoran should be scowling and Sakura smiling). I'm not sure what's going on here. I think Syaoran's just happy to be holding Sakura's hand. Whenever I draw S+S in Victorian-esque outfits, they look more like their Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle counterparts, I think. I love drawing the two wearing coordinated outfits and the muted color palette matches autumn, my favorite season. Or else I would have done a more Gothic theme and drawn the photo shoot from New Trials Chapter 68: Regeneration.

This one's dedicated to the New Trials of Card Captor Sakura Facebook Group [link] for being awesome. Thank you so much to all of you.

God, I really want to read your fanfic now, but it's already late and I should get to bed soon. I can try to start it soon. Your fanarts are not only gorgeous detailed but then have me uber curious. :meow: Very well done. I also like the dark background. Very fitting of their Victorian-styled clothes.~

Interesting. A bit Halloween-ish, haunting, and Syaoran looks like he just stepped out of a movie set - I love the texture on his waistcoat, and on Sakura's skirt.

You're right, they do look like TRC Sakura and Syaoran. I'll be honest and say that my first reaction was that they both have an abundance of hair, compared to the size of their faces. And Sakura's body looks too androgynous. Sorry for being blunt! Maybe its just me but I never liked the starved-look of the TRC art-style :( I'm still stuck in the shoujo phase where I want S+S to look a bit chubby and cute. ^^;

Belated Happy birthday, Wish-chan!

ohhh the border, background shading...and the clothes are exquisite - the colours, the style and they're matching!
I love the little frill at the end of Sakura's sleeve and Syaoran's blue coat just brightens up everything...

And now I ramble:

I love how you said: "In the world of CCS, at least for Tomoyo, every day is Halloween." - so true...
Hmmm I bet Sayo the fashion connoisseur put this outfit together. Sakura is upset because he made her change before they left the house (like with her date with Eron) and now they're late for Duchess Tomoyo's Halloween Tea Party

He's smirking...uh smiling because he gets to hold her hand as they gingerly tread through the grand courtyard, which mysteriously became enshrouded in mist (thanks to Earl Eriol).

Unbeknownst to the kawaii couple, they are the key entertainers of the pre-tea party, as the live feed of their trek is recorded by the high resolution, low visibility cameras Duchess Tomoyo installed in the courtyard foliage and displayed for the viewing pleasure of the Star Alliance on the 32 inch flat screen of the tea room.

Another entry into the Li Syaoran Blackmail Diaries!

Happy Birthday Wishchan!!
Happy Halloween fellow NT-holics!!
(maybe I should turn this into a fanfic? :D)

Looool!! Yes, please do turn it into a fanfic! I love reading NT spin-offs no matter how short or long. If you look on the Event page for Wish-chan's birthday, a fan posted a collection of missing Kai and Meilin moments: [link] Note the "Download" button on the bottom underneath "Shared with: Public" and "View Larger".
Actually, this could work as Part II of what :iconselenityshiroi: recently posted in her latest journal entry: [link] and here's a rough sketch of the fanart: [link]

Maybe I should launch a NT fans collab project called the "Li Syaoran Blackmail Diaries" where fans can write scenarios or draw pictures of what they think is in Tomoyo's collection! :giggle:

hmmm I never mustered up the courage to write a fanfic before...A one shot maybe I could manage...I'll try

Amethyst Beloved you are soooo active in the fandom - organising these events; compiling and contributing to the fanwork; commenting and commending everyone...how do you manage to fit this in your daily life? You must be super organised :D

I've noticed that you've been supporting the spin-off fanfic writers in the group. If you have the idea, give it a shot!

Regarding being active in the community I allow myself to be an otaku over one hobby at a time. A few years ago I was into ballroom and Latin dancing. I went to three different studios five times a week for a couple of years before meeting my husband at one of the studios. So it fits in my daily life because that's what I enjoy spending my free time on.

The NT fandom has so many talented people so it's just a matter of being encouraging. There are so many places where people share their work (:dalogo:, :facebook:, Youtube, and fanfiction.net) so it's worth having everything in one place. So thanks for your kind words! You've been a long time fan of NT and I always enjoy reading your comments and posts. Before I finish, do you mind signing my make-shift guestbook and leave a comment on my NT Fan Project site? [link] Thanks!

That's a awesome picture you have there :D It's really nice. Syaoran's facial expression is the best in this one. Hmm but hist fingers look like they are a little too long. The colors really give off the attumn mood. It's sad that Sakura is sad :D I like the dress but I think that her head is a little too big. I think she would look better with less her on the right. But maybe it's just me:P And which girl wouldn't be stiff to hold Syaoran hand xD That doesn't really change the fact that I love this picture :)

Happy Halloween! ^^ Thank you for updating every once in a while, your fanfics really inspires me. Since I'm working on my own fanfic it really helps me when I get a writers block or don't know how to continue the story. Thank you Wish-chan! ^^=

(By the way, I'm going to use this as a reference picture every time I draw Syaoran from now on. That's how well you drew him.)

Oh my god Syaoran's facial expression made me just completely fall in love with him again (for the god knows millionth time)! He's so sexy... You drew him so well in this. On another note, happy (late?) birthday.

Oh, and I'm going to be perfectly honest... I'm a little critical of how you drew Sakura in this one. She looks too stiff and lifeless, especially in the face, and her body looks a little disjointed, especially around the arms. (It's difficult to describe.) I figure that you'd appreciate this type of critical feedback, so that's why I provided it. Normally I love how you draw Sakura.

But your coloring is exceptional, and this is probably the best that I've seen of your drawing Syaoran. Keep up the great work. :D Also great fashion choices. (I love the Victorian look.)

I always appreciate any feedback.^^ You are completely right about Sakura looking lifeless and stiff. I was intending to draw a Gothic picture and make her very doll-like and "flat" aka xxxHolic-style. But then I decided to draw Syaoran and he insisted upon being a dandy and all smirky and happy. So I am pretending it was intentional to be so from the beginning--Sakura uncomfortable with a more forward Syaoran. ^^

Wow, they look incredible for Halloween! Sakura looks like she's kind of uncomfortable with Syaoran, lol. But he is holding her hand so that's a step in the right direction! The border is gorgeous. I love the way that Syaoran's tie and Sakura's bows are the same material.

Aww, I would have loved to seen Halloween pics from you. I always enjoy seeing what kind of themes you come up with. ^^ And yes, it is hard because they are always wearing costumes for the rest of the year.

Thanks, I'm glad you like my pics ^-^ I did draw a picture of Sakura recently, which AmethystBeloved thought looked like a costume you described for Sakura. Of course, it was intended to be New Trials(she's got the staff from Arc 4), just didn't really have a specific chapter in mind

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE!!!

My Halloween idea turned into Victorian, too! (Except, you know, you actually finished yours...)

It looks wonderful, and the clothing is gorgeous. The colour pallette is perfect, too, and it does make you feel the season. You always use such pretty textures, too.

Happy birthday!

Mine is going to take ages...research for four dresses and three suits. I'm regretting it already! But also not because, yeay, Victorian fashion!
