Person of Interest: Our Lady Of The Machine by sqbr

Root from Person of Interest with a phone and gun looking very vaguely like a religious icon with the “halo” of the Machine’s yellow square around her head (it looked more icon-y in my head). The background is AI code, dirt, and a binary tree.

Nominations Open!

fanartremixexchange:

Attention remixers! It’s time to nominate up to FIVE ELIGIBLE FANDOMS. There are two ways to nominate:

  1. Leave a comment on the dreamwidth nomination post.
  2. Leave an ask at the tumblr community

Your nomination should include:

  1. The pseudonym you’ll be using for the exchange (probably just your username unless you’re commenting anonymously)
  2. Between one and five eligible fandoms.

For a fandom to be eligible, you must have at least 5 pieces of fanart in the fandom, where each piece of fanart fits the rules: complete, representative and designed by you. No collaborations or crossovers.

Anonymous submissions are enabled at both communities for those who don’t have a tumblr or a dreamwidth account. 

Nominating fandoms doesn’t mean you have to participate in the exchange, but please only do it if you’re at least thinking about joining in.

Nominations close August 5th. At that point I’ll make a final list with all the fandoms that got at least 2 nominations. I’ll probably post a preliminary list before that to let people know which fandoms only have one nomination.

Redlining Samara by FanaticalOne

This is not my art! It’s a pretty portrait of Samara from Mass Effect 2 by fanaticalone/theoreticalconstruct. But she asked for feedback and said she was ok with redlining, so here’s my attempt at describing how I’d improve it.

flamebyrd:

I just had this vivid mental image but I can’t draw, so can someone else do modern day Tauriel in a dress and galaxy leggings, because she walks in starlight?

(I think Tolkien elves would totally be on board with the galaxy leggings trend.)

This was fun :)

Tauriel: walking in starlight by sqbr

A modern day Tauriel in galaxy tights and a flower crown with a modern bow. For flamebyrd.

I wanted to keep her in green but it looked awful with the tights.

Fresh Pretty Cure: Setsuna by sqbr
Setsuna from Fresh Pretty Cure redesigned: she has twisting scars up her arms and is wearing red socks, black shoes, and a beige Australian style summer school uniform dress with a clover pattern. There are stylised passionfruit vines and flowers in the corners of the picture.

This dress is inspired by the Perth College summer dresses, since I thought the repeated splotches looked vaguely like passionfruit pulp. I don’t know if any Japanese schools use these kinds of dresses (probably not warm enough!), let’s say she’s pretending to be an Australian exchange student :)

(Just if you want to) could you draw buki and setsuna from fresh pretty cure the same way you draw love and miki? ( just if you want) and i love how you draw love and miki to fit your style SO original! Continue that way :) — monifigu

Aw, thanks, this was actually just the encouragement I needed! My ideas for Buki and Setsuna didn’t hit me with as much force which is why I never got around to drawing them, but the unfinished set did niggle at me. Now I just have to decide on the final details for Setsuna…

Fresh Pretty Cure: Buki by sqbr

Buki from Fresh Pretty Cure redesigned to be a bit more pineapple-y: rounder chin, yellower colours and spikier hair. Also she’s in a manual wheelchair whose spokes form a clover shape because my muse insisted. The background is a victorian wallpaper-esque pineapple flower pattern.

Summary:

Maisie was in no mood for a ball.

She always felt like a fool in formal wear. The ball was full of Pixies and Slyphs looking lovely in ensembles much like hers, but delicate ringlets and a ruffled dress were far less flattering on a seven foot tall Lob covered in hair.
