Here goes one of my favorite art pieces by my friend Sha or LunarArtist, it’s pretty much Miriam “Miriam-chan” Holliman (original character of mine) meeting Sha Amaranth (personal character of my friend), it’s such a sweet art piece that came into fruition by a really interesting conversation. One of many really interesting conversations… *laughs* Now […]
This is Viktor Amaranth, the tall one, with his significant other, Barley Wood, who is also Viktor’s butler. They’re both bi, and share an intimate bond since their youth. Barley is a half-elf, half-human hybrid, and Viktor is a human descent of faeries. They’re in our upcoming main webcomic.
Hello #artvsartist2021 😘 My names Sha! Short for Alexandria. Tis Russian. I’m not. Well, except for a wee bit, way way wayyy back. 🙃 I’m an aspiring #webcomicartist I mostly draw character designs and romantic couples, cos I’m a girl, and that’s what girls do. 😉 Hopeless romantic, that I am! Anyway I’m a fan and writer of #gothicfiction and #darkfantasy so expect that in my forecast. 👩🏼🎨🎨 Oh yes and before I forget – I’m part of art team @tealightstories with Mikau @octobernocturne Robert @timewillcrawl94 and Matthew @villanimatthew – I’m the #artdirector for the record.
(My description was originally written for Instagram – I’m LunarArtist.Alexandria on there, and will edit in proper tags when I go on my laptop laters.)
I edited my/Sha’s hair to the canon hair colours it’ll be in the upcoming webcomic; here, Jokul Frosti gives me/Sha a kiss on the nose, inspired by the Christmas song that goes, “Jack Frost nipping at your nose”~ 💖
Amy Belle Florel (redhead) with her ‘belle-mere’ (French for ‘stepmum’ – Amy is French American), Sha Pris Amaranth Florel (who is my main avatar in the CTM universe). Today happens to be my 31st life-day, shared with my avatar who also has the same name and everything as I do~ 💖
So the sketch comes from my 2016 sketchbook based on a photo-manip of Emilie Autumn and Amy Lee from Evanescence (my role model), and was coloured in Clip Studio Paint Pro with final touches done in Adobe Photoshop Elements 5.0 at Micky’s suggestion I don’t be afraid to “go darker with the shadows” – I used to use this ‘technique’ in Photoshop when I did my gothic inspired artwork in 2009, then from 2010 onwards I had gone for more of a ‘pastel look’ . . . think I wanna go back to the gothic look, as our stories are dark in nature as gothic novels are. So thankyou very much, Micky! :3 💖
My therapy homework – the social worker said I could visualize, write or draw about myself in social settings to help combat my social anxiety (since I’m refusing to go outside on my own again… 😬) so here I am on the arts street with a peach iced tea from Hyrule Market (which is what we call the marketplace there) since I said I wanna be able to go there on my own someday… hopefully soon!! 😁
The music in the art video is “Stargazing by the Ocean”, a seashore song (that means part of it is ocean sounds) composed by my best friend, Matthew Villani, known as AltoonaYourPiano on YouTube in a similar style to “Mama’s Dream”, the song I used in my last art video. You can listen to the whole song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1rnlengHTw
This art piece and the art video is in memory of Matt’s mom, Patricia “Patty” Villani (who was named after Saint Patrick btw!). She was like a second mama to me, and called me “Sweet Allie”. God bless her beautiful heart and soul in Heaven. 🙏🏻
Milton and Sha from MQ again! This was drawn back when I was really into Gothic Lolita fashion in my late teens. =^.^= 💚 Going to be going through my old sketches and colouring them!
Sha’s curls here are inspired by Mikaila from the gothic manga Godchild by Kaori Yuki who along with Ayami Kojima is a big influence on me and my brothers’ art styles. What’s funny is that last night Micky said this looks like him/Viktor and Amy… he’s right! 😆
I recorded a speedpaint art video which you can watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M73PPE8wOFs
The music in the art video is “Mama’s Dream” composed by my best friend, Matthew Villani, known as AltoonaYourPiano on YouTube inspired by his mother’s dream. You can listen to the whole song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxHxd20qxQ0
The art video and this art piece is dedicated to Matt’s mom, Patricia “Patty” Villani. All my love and prayers to her. 🙏🏻
