Prince Naoki Sora, a character from my story. Japanese-Taiwanese, speaks English and Japanese, though the latter won’t really be a big part of the story at all and he understands it better than he speaks it. (I’ve decided that the story takes place in a made-up Kingdom - not changing the time, that’s staying as 2014, but a made up location where his mother rules as Queen.)

Naoki’s face and Ellemern’s party wear! I’m really happy about this weee

Sketches from yesterday and today. :3 ellemern and naoki concepts (appearance and party wear, still not sure how naoki should look…), Loki, and two random doodlies who look like siblings. ^^

"So I decided I wanted to play with the idea of reflections, and a modern version of the little girl in the original painting. It was only after a lot of sketching that I ended up playing more with the idea of time than just modernizing her: as you can see above, the reflection on the left is dressed in something close to the original, while the middle girl is modernized and the reflection on the right is futureistic. It’s moments in time, reflections, and a bit of reality distortion and stillness too, as well as ‘appropriating’ the girl’s dress and translating that into different styles, and I ‘eyeballed’ the colors from Las Meninas to use for this as well."
^ what I wrote in the submission box for this assignment :3 Yup, it’s finished and I’m really happy with it. The hardest part was the futuristic version ‘cause I’m not creative when it comes to fashion so i had to look through lots of references and redraw it a couple times before I was content, and i shortened her hair for the future ‘cause it’s a futuristic sort of style, when paired with that sort of outfit. ;v I also changed the modern one’s skirt because it looked a bit odd and kind gladiator-esque ^^; 
*dances*

Another concept of Ellemern. :)

New plan/composition: vignettes! Since they’re on tracing paper and I’ve drawn all these little details so many times now I think I might flip them like the pic above instead of the whole process to transfer them facing the way they were originally. Still unsure whether I’m gonna ink them or not… Probably since the details are so fine and painting right on it will smudge or lose clarity..

I can’t decide which is better xv top is somewhat non sequential, with the order as flight, death, fall; on the other hand, the second option looks a little weird on the left , as one part has the top of the cliffs and the other the bottom. Considering separating them and moving them round to find a better composition… The drawings themselves in the second one are better though, I think. ^^

A sketchy sort of illustration thingy for the last paragraph of chapter 50 of a fic I’m reading called Shifting Views. Bloop. How do draw Bruce,foxes, and sofas???  xv

WIP: based on Las Meninas, this is for my online art history course. I’m playing with time, reflections, and a lil bit of reality distortion maybe, with the little girl in her past outfit in one mirror, in the center in a present day version of her outfit, and in the mirror on the right she’ll be in a futuristic outfit when i’m done. ^^ The colors, apart from those for lines, are meant to be the same as those in the original, from the walls and floor to the girl’s clothes and the flowers.

Her Primeval OC Damien (fc jon michael hill), by request, for Jackie. He works at the same zoo as Abby, and I’m pretty sure that’s Wellington (?) So I googled their logo for the shirt ^^

Concept art for my original story Cinderell - based on Cinderella- of Ellemern. He’s Indian-American, transgender, bi, dislikes being short and likes his hair long. Among other traits. He’s the main character and falls in love with the Prince, Naoki, who is Japanese-American. The story is set in the present day.
