Finished up the clothing for the Cleric Sailor Moon,  next up will be finishing the shield, staff, and sword.  Then I’ll work on her armor.

I bought some fabric for my dolls (from here), including some that I wasn’t sure about, but I wanted to include some skin tones that were darker than just Pale Flesh.  I bought Honey and Caramel, and while the values were pretty good, the overall tone was a little odd for flesh - too yellowy.
I’d also recently picked up some Rit fabric dye, and decided to try hand-dying the fabrics to round out their tones.  So using a mix of Wine Red, Kelly Green, and Lemon Yellow, I dyed 1/3yard each of the Honey and the Caramel fabric.  On the furthest left is the un-dyed Honey, then the dyed Honey - which was dyed after I did the Caramel, so there was less pigment in the dye bath.  The middle right is the un-dyed Caramel, and the furthest right is the dyed Caramel.
Over-all I’m happy with them, and I may do another 1/3yard each of these two colors so that I’ve got more colors to work with.

ATLA reference in the Simpsons

I never knew About this! Too bad they got the order of the element cycle wrong…

This has been circulating again, and I felt like pointing out this was (as far as I can tell) the second Avatar shout-out that The Simpsons has done.

I was watching The Simpsons, s22e12, and something very familiar happened. Bart points emphatically and shouts “To the Library!”  
Although, Avatar may have been referencing something earlier than itself that I haven’t been able to track down.
I also remember one other show doing it recently, but I can’t remember right now.  (Possibly Family Guy, which given that Mike was a director on that show before working on Avatar, would be a nice tribute.)

I’d almost forgotten, until I was going through a list of other entertainer’s that have passed away this year, that we lost Bob Hoskins back in April.
Makes me worry about Maggie Smith (age 79) or Dustin Hoffman (77).
Darnit, now I want to watch Hook, but I don’t think I can do so without crying - I mean, besides the scene when rufiozuko dies.  That one always gets me.    *gives the internet hugs*

Working on a promotional piece for “A Bird Story” by Freebird Games.  I handed this off to Kan to use in the press release, and then realized I hadn’t gotten around to drawing the boy’s foot.  Haha.

A Bird Story - Announcement Trailer

I’m currently working on some promotional art for this, and did some pixel art as well, including the floating island at 1:08

Heart cast in resin, shown with no backing (on white), smooth foil backing, and crumpled foil backing.I’m definitely going to use a foil backing, the only question is do I go with the crumpled or the smooth.  Thoughts?

Back side of the shield put together and primed.  There’s also an elastic strap under the handle that fits more tightly on the doll’s arm to hold the shield in place.
The outside edges are still rough because there will be one more layer of foam filigree edging the shield that I’m waiting to order some of the auto-body wrap for.
I’ve decided that the filigree will be the super shiny vinyl wrap, the front of the shield will be painted white, and the metal on the back will be more traditional “steel”, while the body of the shield in the back will be wood (which is also why I left the back a little rough)
The two large rivets were sculpted from sculpey, and the small flat rivets were pressed into the foam using the hollow of a pen I took apart.

toshhowl said: Hello, I'm sorry for bothering you, but I have an inquiry about a specific resource I believe you may have done for RPG maker. That is, if you are Tana of the aforementioned community. If you are though, the resource is of a fox sprite. I simply want to use it and potentially make edits to it for a non commercial game.

That’s me.  I’d like to verify that the sprite you’ve got is the one I actually did.  A lot of pixel stuff for rpg maker got attributed to me when other artists made them.

 

This is the fox sprite that I made for Aveyond 2 by Amaranth Games, so if it’s the one you’ve got, I would only ask that you make sure to include credits to me either as Tana, Alisa Tana, or Alisa Christopher.  If it’s not the one you’ve got, you should notify the site that you’ve found it on that it’s not mine (or just give me the link so I can do it), and use this one.  ;p
