So it’s been five years to the day since I started my
historical (or, well, historical-ish)
Disney princesses series. I have no idea
how it’s been this long – I feel like I drew some of these yesterday – but it
seemed as good an opportunity as any to revisit Belle now that I’m five years
older and wiser. And now that I’m way more into the 1780’s/90’s.
I drew that original Belle on a whim, fueled by my sister’s
time working as a costumed interpreter at Colonial Williamsburg, and assuming
it would be a one-off piece. In the long
run, despite all their now egregious flaws, I owe this series for some pretty cool jobs, meeting a ton of cool people, developing
an unexpectedly voracious appetite for historical fashion, and eating a fair
amount of humble pie along the way.
I think this Belle probably marks the swan song of my historical Disney princess series. Much as I’d love to continue
doing it forever, I’ve got a lot of exciting personal projects that I’m ready
to dedicate more of my precious free time to.
I’ll probably continue designing this stuff in my off hours – who am I
to resist drawing the likes of Slue Foot Sue and Katrina Von Tassel – but I’m going to
focus less on polished illustrations, and more on the research and design. When you get right down to it, that’s the aspect of this stuff that I love. :)
Thanks to everyone who stuck with me over the past five
years, and here’s to way more historical fashion in the years to come I can’t even put into words how lovely y’all’ve been.
Sniper+medic getting driven somewhere by driver in 13! Pls and thanks!
thank you for the request but also fuck you for making me draw cars again
EDIT: oh fuck i forgot. medic’s shirt says “1970 Exotic Animal Organs Convention”. he’s telling driver all the parts he wants and where he’s going to implant them. sniper’s just excited for the tasting panels.
After a round of some very simple communication, Stan manages to convey that he is quite proficient in mechanics, but to his disappointment it wasn’t with much kindness that he was offered a job by this alien, it was for more labor with little to no pay. But as far as he cares at the moment it’s better than being stuck out in the multiverse with nothing to his name, fairing only a little better than he was on Earth before this catastrophe.
Considering I’m only 5'1, thank the gods that Alex Fierro doesn’t have a thing for giants
I decided to get over my fear and finally post some of my art. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I’ve started taking art seriously only a couple years ago and recently started using a style. I wouldn’t mind some constructive criticism considering I know I can really improve, just please don’t be mean (I’m sensitive😂)
Also I’m working on a pretty neato project. ٩(๑❛ᴗ❛๑)۶ I can’t wait to share it with you guys! It’s been a progress trying to focus on improving my colors and composition so hopefully it’s getting somewhere 🌸
YOU SHIP QROWIN OH MYGOD - ahem. Can we expect more art of them in the future ??? :D
YOU’D BE SURPRISED because I definitely will spam a lot of them
Have a charity ball AU thing where our fav snowbirds is stuck and forced to call it truce for a night (the peace of both kingdoms is at sake so they better act like mature adults they’re supposed to be for once)
I am not selling my art anywhere except society6 (currently) && I have not given anyone permission to sell/reproduce/distribute my art.
So basically aside from the few (like, 6 pcs lol – and that’s just because people wanted me to put them up for sale) prints up on my society6, I make no money off of my art as I only make them purely for my (and the fandom’s) enjoyment.
If you see anyone selling my art, please do not buy from them as they most likely stole it from me and are unfairly making money off of it. Also I would appreciate it if you report them to the proper personnel (if it is at a con or something) or tell me (if you saw it online).
IDK what to feel about this because I’ve been getting a lot of reports about this happening lately so aaaah ;;; I don’t want to upload smaller res art because I want people to be able to look at them properly so I think I should just make the watermarks more visible? I don’t knowww hahaha omg this is all new to me
