Fan Art Friday: Celestial Balance

Elf

Here is a fun little elf sketch from my high school sketchbook!  I drew this in conjunction with a short story I wrote around the same time, “Celestial Balance.”  The elf in the story has curly hair, but there was no way I was going to be able to draw that!

Keep reading for the story!

Fan Art Friday: Summertime Sakura

Another Cardcaptor Sakura sketch from my high school sketchbook!

I imagine that she’s calling to some birds as she sits in the tree.  The cute little sundress is very summery, and the shoes are ballet-inspired (I was a dancer).

It’s interesting that there are no Clow Cards anywhere in the picture.  Normally my Sakura drawings are battle costumes, but this one is just an everyday scene.

I think I traced some of this, but I don’t remember exactly what.  I love the expression though; it’s very Sakura-chan!

Fan Art Friday: Sakura + Fly

Sakura fly

More Cardcaptor Sakura fan art from my high school sketchbook!

The Fly card is one of my favorites, and it’s one that Sakura uses often, too.  I loved that it gave the staff wings, and later the Sakura Card version gives Sakura herself wings in a beautiful two-page spread.

Gosh, I just love her expression in this one.  I’m not sure what happened that she is hanging off of the Fly staff, but I suspect one of her friends is in trouble down below.  Kero’s expression is cracking me up, too.

In the very bottom corner you can see I signed it “Mei-Mei.”  I’ve been going by this pen name for at least half my life now! 😀

Fan Art Friday: Let it Snow!

LetItSnow

I hesitate to actually call this fan art, because it’s an original drawing and not actually fan art.  But all my sketches have gone under this series heading, so I guess this one can too. 😉

In any case, I hope you all are getting into the spirit of the season!

 

 

Fan Art Friday: Drizzt Do’Urden

Drizzt

Kiri and I will be back soon with our Star Wars coloring book.  In the meantime, have a picture of the most famous dark elf ever.

In college I went through a summer where I read every Forgotten Realms book by R.A. Salvatore featuring his most famous creation, the drow Drizzt Do’Urden.  I blame my husband for getting me hooked (he lent me all of them).  You can clearly tell this is Drizzt because he is dual-wielding scimitars.

I haven’t kept up with the Drizzt books from the past 10 years or so, though Salvatore is still writing about him.  I kind of lost interest after a dozen plus novels.  But Drizzt still has a special place in my heart.
