Whew! Done. This was a lot of trial and error and switching around, and no green this time. Which is sad, but sometimes, no green. That’s life. I’m posting my color sketch too.
This was loads of fun though, I haven’t done a group shot in a long time! This is going on the program book for this year’s Anime USA. Go check them out!!
I forgot to post this! Probably because I still don’t feel very confident about it, I seriously need to work on my coloring, among other things.
This is for alliebirdseed, because she has amazing characters and stories and is generally an amazing person.
Kinixuki draws my babies more than I do omfg ;_;!!! You have no idea how much this brightens my day/week/life in general, thank you so, so much for this. I’m just going to continue staring at this for a while and being stupidly happy for the rest of forever.
… and now line-art, after some shuffling and rearranging!
This image is going to be for a wrap-around cover, so certain characters (mainly the show’s mascot) needed to be on the right. I was a little worried it might flow weird, but I think it’s okay! Now I just have to figure out colors for everything.
Mess, sketch, and line-art for Recipes for the Dead: Steam Minted Meringue!
I feel like I’m drawing a lot of piles of roses lately, this is the third time I’ve invoked that particular space filler. I can’t help it though. They’re all curly and fun. And technically thematic to the issue!
mess and sketch! I hope we get to use this, but I like the comparison of the two anyway.
This has been a week of drawing piles of characters. Stay tuned for flowers and cookies!
I really want to do something about Ferguson but I live states away and have no money to fund anything. Do you know of any petitions or SOMETHING I can do, because I've tried my hardest to get the word out, we new to reach out to these people. I feel like we aren't doing enough there has to be something.
Okay there’s a lot of different posts with multiple links each on how to help and some of them overlap so I’m just gonna compile all the relevant links I can think of here:
Contact the Ferguson Police Department and seek information on those being detained, the protests, legal procedures, etc.

- DO NOT reblog photos of Mike Brown’s body lying on the street. His family has requested that these photos not be spread around. Please respect their wishes.
Very importantly, stay alert. Read everything you can on the subject. The reports on The New York Times, Al Jazeera, and other news outlets are very limited, especially because the police in Ferguson are going to great lengths to keep reporters out. Seek out what you can online and from first hand sources, if you know anyone in the area. Listen to the stories of those who have been affected by this tragedy and other similar ones. Educate yourself as much as you possibly can so you can help make sure the right people are heard.
And here we have my cat Sophie, who has taken my room mate’s bed.
It is hers now.
Photos of Fran from the MechaCon X Cosplay Contest! They ran out of time so I didn’t get prejudged (booooooo) but I still won the Judge’s Award from Rufflebutt which was fantastic!
Photos from Chad Wright, CoastCon and Alpha to Omega Mission respectively.
This was collapseddominos' costume from the same convention, which is a hundred times better so go look at that and not at my potato face.
No seriously, actually this costume was awesome to see come together. I helped with some of the finishing on it, but she’s been making this one for like half a year. It’s all hand done and it’s held on by magic and velcro.
