It's finally that time! :3 The start of a new series! It's the "Inspiration Series" featuring lovely people... Be prepared for lots of great posts. :D
I really wanted to show you all who some of the amazing people that inspire me are. They are all beautiful people that have not only inspired me by their artwork, but also by the kindness that they emit. It's so wonderful... :3 It's like a wonderful bundle package of awesomeness.
Though something everyone should know: I asked permission to feature these artists artwork. These artists do not, in any circumastance, want their artwork reposted onto another site. Go to each of their sites and personally find if they allow reposting and/or reblogging. Because if they say no, then don't do it. It's illegal.
Piku-chan = Fabulous Person All Around
Seriously. She's one of the most talented people that I've ever seen. When I saw one of her art pieces, I was instantly hooked. I'm quite positive the first thing that I ever saw from her was her beautiful Miraculous Cinderella AU that she's been doing. Gosh, though. That AU is one of the most beautiful things that I've ever read and seen in my life. It's so indescribable. Her art style is so unique and eye catching. It makes you want to look at everything and see the detail, hard work and effort that she put into everything.
Some cool facts about her: She loves to draw, especially illustrating and character design. She has studied animation and loves concept art. She also loves fantasy, sci-fi and supernatural. :) She's great...
Here are some of her amazing pictures:
Aren't her pictures just so beautiful? Like I said, the detail, lighting, colors, etc. are just mind blowing! I love everything she does! :3 Go show her some great support by checking out her great Tumblr page:
Tori is another outstanding artist. She also loves the Miraculous Ladybug fandom. And I'm pretty sure that's how I discovered her, too. Some awesome Miraculous Ladybug picture caught my eye and I danced away towards her site and began to look at all of her beautiful art works. :3
Tori has a very cute, simple - yet complex, art style. Everything she does - to the detailed finished pieces or her quick doodles - just throws her essence of drawing and what it means to be an artist at you. You know: In a good way that makes you want to keep being inspired by everything she does.
More cool facts: She's a Storyboard Revisionist who worked on Equestria Girls. Isn't that epic? :D I can't get over how cool that is... :3
She preferred that I didn't feature any of her artwork, and I completely respect that. You should go view her art work on her Tumblr page:
Haiyun has the cute simple art style that Tori has, but this is applied in a different way because she draws manga. And everyone knows that if someone draws manga, then their art style is going to be so much different than another persons manga art style.
I was allowed to feature some of her artwork and they are spectacular! I can't really describe her art style, so hopefully her pictures can say what I can't.
The picture of Marinette with the bun was the first picture I ever saw from her. I instantly fell in love with the way she had drawn her. It was wasn't crazy elaborate, but was worth a second look. Then another. And another. Yeah, I just sort of fell in love with the picture. And quite quickly everything else. :3
By the way - for those of you not educated in Japanese, the second picture with the girl sporting the great pink hair, yeah, those characters (katakana, respectively) that are floating say "doki doki". Doki doki means the quick beating of the heart, usually used when someone is love struck. <3
Aren't her pictures exquisite? You can check out more of her pictures over at her Tumblr page:
But one thing that I recently found out, and I absolutely adore this, is that she has a store! :D A store! Full of amazing items like Miraculous Ladybug Clear Book Tabs, a Card Captor Sakura Self-Inking Stamp, etc. There are so many great things that I would love to fill my room with! X3
Go and check out Haiyun's Store:
Haiyun - Store Envy
These spectacular (or should I say "miraculous"? :P) people have inspired me so much. It's kind of crazy how much these people have inspired me. But what's crazier is that I have more people who inspire me! They come from every where on this earth. They go and put all of their amazing talent into pictures to either tell those untold stories, to inspire and impact others, or just to make them smile for themselves (which ends up making others smile as well!). :3 Isn't great?
So please, go and waddle (? I.. I don't know) around their Tumblr pages (and Haiyun's store!) and get inspired to do something great. :D
I want to give a huge shout out and thank you for all the artists featured in this post! (And the many more to come!) You all are so lovely and please keep on inspiring, creating art, and expressing yourself!
Talent and inspiration comes from all of the earth...
What inspire you?
So when you enter my page now, you can see that the button is different and that the words that are above it are different as well.
The words above the button is telling you that you have creativity, color, passion, a wonderful vision, and inspiration. If you don't know it, then go dig deep. I found my love to draw manga watching Cardcaptor Sakura, Bianca found her love to write reading amazing books, and there is so much more inspiration that can get your creative juices flowing.
So I changed the button (and the button link) to Michaels. This wonderful place to buy any thing that has to do with crafts (because almost everything is a craft :3).
If you were wondering what it was before, it was this:
CLIP STUDIO PAINT
Clip Studio Paint is a place to.... you know, it's easier for you to just look. I really like the site. It is very informative and they show you the free trial in a video. So yeah! Go explore.. :D
Anyways, your artistic ability comes from who you are. You are a super SUPER special person and all you have to do is explore the endless possibilities of what form of art your supposed to do. :3
And if you need some inspirational quotes or wonderful amazing pictures to get those creative juices flowing like a river that will never EVER stop. :3
:3 For those of you who have read our Twisted Two blog know that I absolutely LOVE Cardcaptor Sakura. But do you know Cardcaptor Sakura is?
Cardcaptor Sakura is a Japanese show and comic about this magical girl called Sakura. She stumbles across this book that she finds in her fathers study. She opens it after looking at the very intricate cover and finds that it is filled with cards. She picks up the top card and reads it causing the cards to scatter, so she releases the cards guardian. (I'm trying to tell you the main plot of the story without ruining it all....) She then tries to collect the cards that have been scattered to the book so that the she can fulfill her contract.
That's all I can give to you all without ruining the whole thing. Sorry. Also (this is really important so I'm going to put it in italics, bold it, and underline it) the correct way to watch this show is the Japanese version with English subtitles. If you want the whole show ruined for you, then you can totally watch the English dubbed version, but my opinion is the Japanese one. I love that one the best.
Now, if you are new to this blog and have no idea what she looks like, I'll show you a few photos! :3
I did NOT draw these pictures.
These pictures are with her best friend Tomoyo. Tomoyo is a very happy girl who loves to make outfits for Sakura and tape her while she is doing her cardcaptor job. (She absolutely adores it... :3)
Well, I hope you all go check out Cardcaptor Sakura!
Tell me in the comments what you like about Cardcaptor Sakura or what your favorite show is!
I have drawn 2 new pictures and (so far), they are awesome! The first new one is my name all 3D-ified. The C and H are all part of my love of fashion, the A is covered in vines, the R is going to be about Cardcaptor Sakura, the I is going to be a waterfall, the S is going to be candy, and the M is going to have the Master Sword (LoZ), 2 Wands (Harry Potter), and a Light-saber (Star Wars), while the A....
The last and final A in my first name, I'm having troubles with.
Should I do the A in honor of my love of Ninjago or should it about Princess Tutu (I love the show Princess Tutu; some people might think it is weird).
Please give me your opinion by commenting!
Now! The other drawing is a girl (obviously; I will do some guys in the future). She is crying, but should she be watching TV, and that is why she is crying? Or should she be heart-broken because her beloved one moved away?
Please comment and give me your opinion about this too!
(P.S. I know the design I'm going to do for Princess Tutu.)
