The hood is now more visibly Kenny-ish (the original version).
I was 12 and some new friends at my new school let me copy their Sailor Moon trading cards. I was so happy to meet other kids who’d actually seen that super cool show about magic-moon-girls and talking cats (distressingly, it almost never came on TV). So I copied the characters as best I could, and now I give you the first anime-styled anything in my portfolio.
For whatever reason the drawings really embarrassed me and had to stay hidden, but my mom found them weeks later. She was so proud that I could draw something like Japanese Animation, and my dad naturally thought it’d be cool to rent me some Akira, Ghost in the Shell, and Maps.
WHAT THE HELL DAD
(Well, okay. It was pretty cool)
If her style is total eye candy (note: it is), then her characters are heart candy. Hers is a fluid, very animated style (often literally); every update delivers amazing artwork with a little more insight into what makes this intriguing cast tick.
Love this comic! I’ve wanted to draw her giftart ever since we met at Otakon 2011, because she is delightful, as is her work. THIS IS LONG OVERDUE

Just pondering how much I’d been influenced by A League of Their Own as a kid - pretty sure it’s a big reason why I played any sports at all!
This isn’t any character in particular, just a smokin’ ballplayer covered in dirt, waiting to step up with her gloriously impractical uniform.

CAN’T STOP BEING INSPIRED BY JETWOLF’S BLOG
Drawn earlier today with the intention of being “fake screencaps,” to honor Jetwolf’s efforts to write alternate concepts for Mako/Mina’s power up episodes (so they can have their own powerup stories like Rei and Ami - for once!). The scene’s supposed to be Artemis walking in on a serious and studious Mina, him feeling a swell of pride, until realizing that she’s actually…well, you can see.
If I ever draw more, it’s important to scale back the levels of shading and linework variation to make it more convincing. As for crediting, definitely used a lot of references for the colors of course (and if I could get away with painting backgrounds that airbrushy on the regular, I’d be one happy camper).
…………..…Honk if you’re sick of me posting SM stuff
Summary of Sailor Moon, Season 1.
(I know I know, posting way too much dumb SM art allll over this year - blame Jetwolf’s fabulous inspirational Rewatch Blog).
Just a little bit of RE2-lovin’; it pops up every few years. <3 Wanted to draw Sherry wearing Claire’s alternate-costume-jacket, instead of the vest (though I have nothing against Glorious Pink Vest).
Gotta get back to work so the background is a photoshopped RE2 street screencap; yes yes I’m a dirty cheater.
…What the hell color are Leon’s eyes? (The answer: apparently every color ever)
Taking a stab at my old linocut supplies with way disastrous results. Lennaaa, why do you have a beard now?
Got to draw a little guest-art for the pinup section in the back of DREAM THIEF #4 (from Dark Horse). Though only one page, it’s my first contribution to a comic under a major publisher!
I’m pretty jazzed, and way honored to have given anything to such a fun book. Dream Thief is written by Jai Nitz (the standup gent who invited me to draw this) and drawn by the marvelous Greg Smallwood.
Two Amya doodles. The first is Jacqueline, the mysterious assailant who travels with Felix. I love the chance to draw middle-aged and/or muscular women, among all my dainty young lady peeps.
Then, a drawing of Kaden that’s at least two years old, when I hadn’t gotten the hang of her androgyny yet (was trying to avoid lazily clinging to my Watase Nuriko/Shuro roots <3). This attempt at Kaden+femininity *might* have been tainted by my everyone-has-a-long-face phase (ca 2010-2011?), but I still dig the doodle and her rockin’ hair!
Michael Sexton of Everblue has been drawing a short for Amya, totally loving the way he’s been drawing her.
Anonymous asked you:
The girls are assigned similar projects at their schools. The project is to design a superhero identity for themselves, complete with powers and motivation. How well do the girls NOT knock off their real superhero identities? Or do they just go with “I’m a senshi”? I figure their teacher wouldn’t be impressed. Also, which would use the chance to create a BETTER superhero identity? Who just makes “I’m a senshi but not”?
What the hell class is this even FOR? Geez.
Usagi’s identity is Princess Cake. She is literally a princess who eats cake. That is her power. She eats cake and her resulting happiness eradicates all evil in the world and makes everybody else happy. Then they, too, can eat cake.
Could not resist the art potential of Cake Princess. I’ve never reblogged before and way screwed up the formatting but this is in response to Keyofnik’s blog, which is truly excellent!
The second in the newest series of Amya posters. It *might* be no surprise that the lovely and tough Lenna is my favorite Amya character to draw.
Took a break from pages to doodle Rei, a character I disliked as a kid for always being mean and a total hypocrite and now that’s why I love her forever
