daring acrobatics

RATING THE BAT EMOJIS

a good friend!! more realistic than the other contenders but overall a nice solid bat. a cutie that belong in a child’s textbook about how bats are friends. i wanna boop the big ol snoot.

spooky boy!!!! more like a halloween decoration w the lack of facial features and little yellow eyes but the lil feets are an absolute plus. ears leave something to be desired. nicely anatomical.

a thick lined pointy friend!!! the lack of fingers in the wings is a little disconcerting along with the odd nose, but the addition of the little light colored tummy is Good. could be better, but i wouldnt turn this friend down in a pinch.

hmm. this friend could definitely use some work. the oddly patterned fringed wings and lack of feets make this bat more of a bat-symbol than a true bat. a risky move that im not sure they pulled off. looks like he’s made of cardboard. mediocre friend.

oooh, an artsy friend. the wings arent anatomical in the slightest, but the blue-gray coloring is easy on the eyes. an adorable nose, but also upside down compared to typical bat noses. needs feets and a lil tail, the rounded butt looks weird.

big boy! a chunky friend. the little thumb bumps on the wings are definitely in the wrong place, which is odd they included them at all. the gradient lets us know he’s chubby, but don’t really work on the wings. a nice long tail and teeny feets! needs bigger ears, and not sure about the glowing eyes. could be worse.

oh wow!! a daring acrobatic friend!!! i love the smiling face, but not sure about the rabbit ears and odd finger placement on the wings and humanoid feet. needs batsy toes. like the chest fluff. a friendly halloween decoration, but too human.


aaa!!!!! what a great friend!!!!!! very fluffy and small!!! red eyes are out of place like theyre going for the forced spooky look, but i still love her! i want to nuzzle the poof and wrap her in a little blanket. could benefit from teeny thumbs, but still a good bat. take out those color contacts, friend, you dont need them

Here’s the power duo from my acrobat!au, Lan Fan and May! <33

Look at them cuties.. but caution though, these two might look very cute and friendly but they are in fact “monsters” in disguise.. whenever they perform, they destroy the show with their fierceness and presence.

Also May in this verse, as you guys can probably see, isn’t as short as in the Manga. She is only slightly smaller than Lan Fan (who is slightly shorter than Ed (in this verse he’s around 1,66m and so Lan Fan is around 1,63m and May is 1,59m))

Now i have to draw Ling and Ed together, probably doing something stupid, but i don’t know how i’ll do that ^^’

Hm, hope you guys enjoy~

Here’s another new design we are developing, inspired by Mirror’s Edge.

Most of you know that pants are a new thing for us, but we think development is coming along quite nicely. The inspiration of these pants is clear, and we’ve worked hard to get the look just right; but looks aren’t everything, and in this case we want these pants to pay homage to their source of inspiration in the practicality of the design. So along with the zipper at the back of the calf which tapers the pant leg, we are also trying to design them with a superior range of motion, not to mention durability, so that they can be worn by even the most daring and acrobatic traceur.

At the same time we want to maintain the fit and style of a casual pair of pants (with a twist, of course), so that non-acrobats will also feel cofortable in them.

All that said, we haven’t been able to decide on a name for this product. We have two possible options at this point; one that’s a little snappier, and one that is more indicative of the inspiration for the design. So we’ve decided to put it up to a vote and get some feedback, to help us make a decision. 

“A hunting unit that quickly entered the spotlight for their daring displays of acrobatics during hunts, even climbing on the Monsters to attack them! They have been guarding Barubaré from the Daren Mohran that inhabits the desert in which they live.”

Done and dusted! I really like this one, I can’t wait to face this monster next year. This is the first of four designs to come.

Goodreads Summary:

The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called “Le Cirque des Reves,” and it is only open at night.

But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway–a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love - a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands.

True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus per-formers to the patrons, hang in the balance, suspended as precariously as the daring acrobats overhead.
