Working on superhero stuff.
A little process work and some detail shots of my Haruka & Michiru Leyendecker inspired piece.
When I went to MetroCon last month Lisa Villella had a booth there with a print of the Iwatobi swim club modeled after this Leyendecker piece. Well I immediately bought the print because of my intense passion for both J.C. Leyendecker and Free! Iwatobi Swim Club. Then I was bitten by the idea to do the same concept with Sailor Moon.
I looked through some of my favorite Leyendecker pieces and settled on this one for a picture of Haruka and Michiru (Sailor’s Uranus and Neptune). I treated the process as a sort of master copy to learn what I could from Leyendecker’s handling of brush strokes and shapes.
About a month ago my friends and I attended MetroCon in Tampa and premiered our Lolita Disney Princess group. I designed/made the Ariel and Aurora dresses for Dani and myself.
Sorry I’ve been so lax here lately. I haven’t been able to dedicate much time to art with work and other obligations but I figured I’d at least give an update on the sewing side of my creative endeavors! This is a dress I designed and made for a Lolita Disney princess group that was inspired by Ariel and the Sailor Lolita fashion aesthetic. This dress will be worn with the rest of the group at MetroCon next month.
In anticipation of the upcoming remake I’ve been watching a lot of the original Sailor Moon series lately and felt compelled to draw my personal favorite senshi, Sailor Uranus. I used Nao Takagi, who portrayed her in the live action musicals, as a facial reference.
Final design for Touchstone! His outfit was a big step outside what I’d normally do, especially the kilt and the tights, but I had fun with it.
Trying out hairstyles for Touchstone. Facially I based him off a mix of Michael Ealy and Chris Evans and I’m leaning toward the top hairstyle.
