Oxley and Zacria as SQUASHY MOTHS!!

Ox and Zac are Sam’s characters, mothy 80s synth pop alien boys who are too cool and utterly adorb. 

I tried to take some cool photos with filters over the lights so Ox had a pink light and Zac had a blue light but turns out coloured polypockets aren’t very good filters, so I just settled for yknow, conventional lighting. (Which I also struggle with.)

They are like plushies but with plastic hands and feet and heads. I sculpted the originals in fimo, made a mould in silicone and then cast in polyurethane resin, painted with acrylics and sealed with a matt varnish. The bodies are minky stuffed with a combination of steel shot and heavy fibre fill. The steel shot is at the ends of limbs so they flop aboot.

I think these guys have interfacing in their top wings but not the bottom (I was experimenting). They are airbrushed with jaquard silk dye using some stencils cut out of card and acetate. Ox’s wings were pretty straightforward but Zac’s caused me some concern, I tried to get as close to their sort-of canon design as possible

Okay I’m done now. Sam I hope you like them ;_;

A really old alternate universe where Zacria and Oxley’s species were a bit fuzzier and more moth-like in appearance, based on a really cute photo of a moth foot that Bel and I cooed over (I had to attempt to interpret it into something larger, which lead to this…). I’ve been meaning to post these for months but I kept forgetting…

It got progressively cuter though and they’re fun to draw in pchat with Bel’s Denby, help me?! I need to draw more canon things haha

Far away
This ship is taking me far away
Far away from the memories
Of the people who care if I live or die

Starlight
I will be chasing the starlight
Until the end of my life
I don’t know if it’s worth it anymore

Hold you in my arms
I just wanted to hold
You in my arms

My life
You electrify my life
Let’s conspire to ignite
All the souls that would die just to feel alive

Starlight" — Muse

At last, a proper trade for Sam! This song seems perfect for them. :3

Ox and Zac are so fun to draw. <33 This was a big challenge for me, but I’m really happy with how this turned out! *__* I HOPE YOU LIKE IT, SAM.

Top left: Oxley and Zacria for Jacobin! These two are adorable and your art style is as well! You draw men so well! And your colors! @u@

Top right: Byrd for Ginsengandhoney! You’re such a very creative artist! You have such an awesome style. It’s pretty inspiring! I LOVE seeing your art on my dash and it just always makes me smile. :)

Middle left: Candyfloss for Lydia! You’ve got a really good sense of humor, I always laugh when I see stuff you post or reblog. You seem really friendly and upbeat, and I’m glad I get to see the stuff on your cool blog(s).

Middle right: A croc for Killigan! I was really excited about doing this, mostly for the fun of the phrase “christmas croc” jk but I didn’t know what…species of croc you would like most? So I left the body color out incase maybe you wanted to color it…or if I ended up coloring it and messing it up

Bottom left: Haha this is a two-for-one! (I typically draw a bunch all close up together, I hope you guys don’t mind!) The left is Thomas for Cookiehana,and the right is Emery Bay for Mesopsyclone! Cookiehana, your art is really inspiring! I feel like you are so comfortable with colors, using really bold colors together and always having them turn out so beautiful! Meso, I really appreciate you sticking around with me! As soon as I saw this chara, I was like “D: I must draw him!” I really hope you get to post more art, it’s lovely and adorable! C:
 

Bottom right: Girahim for ilikebruises! I hope you like! XD I ended up putting him in a really tacky-looking sweater (it looked so much better in my head!) I hope that’s not…like out of canon or anything? I don’t know much about skyward sword…or the zelda games for that matter….

More to come!

A Zacria I drew while putting together my book Higher Love, I needed to draw a punky version of him to match this Oxley I drew back in Feb! Obviously I need to draw a couple picture of them in these outfits now (Oxley would definitely want to take a million selfies of xir own outfit as well as Zac’s)…

Completely forgot to upload any of the new art that I did for the book, as well as art I made for merch I sold at SMASH! so I’ll post some more in the coming week.

2. In what I’m currently wearing.

bugsprout: I only answered #2 here as I got the other prompts in separate asks. :) This isn’t what I’m currently wearing anymore though because I’m so slowww with posting art.

Oxley gets to wear my pjs (it’s getting a little chilly in Sydney lately so I’ve taken to wearing my hooded blanket, lol). Zacria is wearing the outfit I wore while running errands the other day. They both somehow make my clothes seem more glamorous than the reality….

OMG! I will be tabling for the first time at SMASH! on the 9th and 10th of August (this weekend!!) I’m tabling with my pal jenmondain, with a guest appearance by zooque! Find us at ★ Table 19 ★

I’m going to be selling prints, stickers (shown above) and my book Higher Love, a collection of my Oxley and Zacria illustrations!! I’ll post some more detailed photos of my merch in the next two days. Hope to see you guys there, come and say hi! <3

I wanted to do that 100% meme just so that everyone can see how chaotic my canvases are at working size. I tend to draw for print resolution (not that I have printed anything yet, but it is a goal…) and I don’t draw zoomed in to 100%, so it’s often messy as HECK.

Going to take this chance to let people know that I have gotten their asks about doing a tutorial/process thing and I am definitely going to do one; I just haven’t had time to work on anything that would show my process that well! Soon…
