Sakura's Star Key pendants by Nanahuatli
Sakura's Star Key pendants
This is a project that spent a long time in the works, and also a lot of time either not being worked on or drying. It's Sakura's Star Key, from the third season of Card Captor Sakura. I've always loved that anime and this item in particular. It's so cute!
I made it in cold porcelain, with a wire skeleton and a plastic bead in place of the original's jewel. I painted the whole piece with acrylics and sealed with water-based varnish.
I was commissioned for only one of these, but since I had no idea how to go about it, I made several to practice and try out different methods. I wasn't able to make the center star faceted, however, so I used paint to create the effect. Because I let the ring dry for too long, I had difficulty attaching the skeleton for the wings and key. I also learned that the star should be bigger than the diameter of the ring, because they shrink in different directions when they dry and the star ends up being smaller. I only figured out how to make wings that pleased me when I was on the last key. XD Oh well. I would like to make more, but it's frustrating, so it'll probably take a while.

What do you think? I hope you like them!

Nicky Kick by Nanahuatli
Nicky Kick
   Finally! I was able to upload this one. It's a drawing of my friend NickyKirei delivering a Taekwondo kick. I'd attempt to use the proper term but I'd embarrass myself, so let's just stick to "Taekwondo kick". I used one of the photos in her gallery as reference, so it doesn't get any closer to the real thing without changing the artist. The whole thing is drawn on black paper with metallic (background) and aquarelle pencils, and the lines were made with a golden gel pen.
   Man, is that pose hard. The fact that the original has the same loose clothing made it even more difficult to understand the anatomy. The background acquired a nice metallic shine after a number of layers, and fortunately I think the effect wasn't entirely lost at the scanner. I'm pretty happy with the scan, actually. While I wasn't aiming for it, I get an oriental feeling from the finished work that goes well with the theme. I still have mixed feelings over it, though. What do you think?

Hello, guys! I wanted to ask your thoughts on something. I've been planning to make a series of drawings with sailor fuku as its subject. The idea would be to draw the same character over and over with different sailor fuku (or maybe school uniforms in general) as a way to "collect" them (because I love school uniforms). Besides, it'd be good practice on anatomy and character consistency. I was planning to use Nima at first, but it then occurred to me that I might want to do the same for military uniforms (ok, I have a thing for uniforms) and she'd be better suited for that. But I don't have many OCs and I'm not sure anyone else is suited. So, who do you think I should use:

- Nima anyway?
- Tomo Shepard (who is not really "my" OC as much as a version of an existing IP)?
- Lettuce girl? (You haven't seen her yet but I'm working on her design. She's a lettuce girl. Shush.)
- Or should I get my shiz together and come up with a shiny new OC?

My mind is devoid of ideas for a new OC, so I could use suggestions, too.

Any contribution will be appreciated. Thanks for your time!

You're welcome! Though I should be chastising you for catching my eye right when I was going to sleep and keeping me up looking at pretty crafts. ;P Just kidding, your jewelry is very original and lovely.
