Fan Art Friday: Happy 4th of July!

Another sketch from my high school notebook.  I don’t know why these Chinese and Japanese characters from Cardcaptor Sakura are celebrating the US Independence Day, but hey, I gave them cute costumes.  Li Syaoran is Uncle Sam, Sakura is the Statue of Liberty, and Meiling is doing acrobatics in a festive parade-watching outfit.

I hope you all here in the US have a great holiday weekend (if you’re really lucky this year it’s four days :)).  Even if our country’s not perfect, we have a lot to be proud of and thankful for.  We can celebrate and look forward to an even better future together.

Fan Art Friday: Sakura calls on JUMP

Sakura jump2

 

Another Cardcaptor Sakura sketch.  Here she has her staff from the second story arc, with the Sakura cards, and she has just used the JUMP card (maybe still in her hand).  The costume is my design.  She has cool boots, and some kind of tulle coming out from an underskirt.

I really like her hair in this one!  And the cape.  I was obviously trying to indicate some movement during her jump.

This is dated 2003 at the bottom.  This is when I was in high school, almost 15 years ago!

Fan Art Friday: Sakura-hime with Sword

Sakura-hime

Another sketch from high school: Cardcaptor Sakura in a medieval-ish princess dress—an original design based off a ballet costume I wore as a Court Lady in Cinderella.  It would be scarlet if there were color.  Sakura has already used the Sword card to transform her staff.

This drawing was also slightly inspired by the episode where Sakura and Syaoran perform a gender-swapped Sleeping Beauty.

KERO-CHAN CHECK!

The brooch at her waist is the wing design that she uses all the time (on her staff, etc.).
