the fact of the matter is even small doodles like these take me like half an hour to feel comfortable with. ANYWAY. this is an OC i am trying to develop… 金烏玉兎 is an old japanese literary phrase that means ‘sun and moon’ but literally is read as ‘golden bird and jade rabbit’. i’m not sure where the phrase originated but looking it up, it seems most associated with a series of writing on onmyoudou called 金烏玉兎集 written by abe no seimei. (onmyoudou is like… a very old form of divinitory system that was used by japanese rulers until its outlawing in the meiji era. you know. the era of perry.) ANYWAY it made me… think of some OCs… idk
jade rabbit person comes from the moon and is ready to totally take over the mochi industry with the special moon-style mochi no one else offers. i don’t have a name for them yet. the moon is different than the earth in a lot of ways and gender is one of those ways (because i say so)
babycarbink ILL DRAW A NICER ONE LATER a pink rose means friendship in victorian english flower language
I SPENT LIKE… 40 minutes on this… and i only used references for the horns so 9__9 and i put color for future ref but uhhhhh the lines look better on their own so whatever
its narí my goat!!!! person!! yes. she’s supposed to have braids but i cant do those well. babycarbink drew her better once upon a time
i drew this around the end of January 2014, for my friend’s birthday. it is based on their ideal patchouli. ideal pathcouli has dark skin and looks like this one chinese actress but i cannot… draw realistically enough to do said actress’s beauty justice… so here is a cartoony patchy
because of said friend though i keep thinking of patchouli as being desi and making her way to the Flandre mansion from India. she learned all the magic there was to learn in India and decided to make her way to Europe… and somehow got stuck serving some bratty Frenchvampires along the way.
anyway every art program i attempt to use crashes my computer constantly and i could not complete this because my comp crashed like 5 times.
but i’m proud of her feet. maybe a silly thing to be proud of, idk, those shoes are nice to me.
FOR GAY MASTER GAYDRIAN, MASTER OF THE GAYS
they sent me a really amazing new year card and it was amazing and i cried and i sent them a crappy card in comparison so i did this. it took too long and is not very amazing but its the first thing i’ve finished in ages. i hope gaydrian likes it.
did you know i didnt know people shipped this until a few days ago. naruto fandom is amazing.
Aoi is beyond sad because she’s just a mother who loves her children but has to follow expectations of her society and culture. She didn’t ask to be born into that kind of life.
This has been sitting as lineart on my desktop since September (according to the file info??) and coloring this I just noticed all the fucking awful things about it BUT AT LEAST ITS COLORED
i might practice shading on it idk
