Ignition Crisis: Next Generation - Jodi by ArtistMeli
Ignition Crisis: Next Generation - Jodi
Here's a piece for SNEEDHAM507 , in return for helping to spread the word about my Kickstarter back in September.  Jodi is a yoga enthusiast, so I decided to draw her trying out "aerial yoga."  I have a friend who teaches aerial yoga, and I've been dying for an excuse to draw some of her poses, so this was really fun!  
Late Christmas gift for ParlourTricks !  This is a setting swap of her Sailor Equinox, putting her in the Kill La Kill setting.  I took the contours of her senshi uniform and turned it into a Kamui, and made this fake screenshot of her transformation scene. :D

Kamui Shunbun translates roughly into "Godrobe Vernal Equinox!" (I wasn't sure if I should go with Vernal or Autumnal, since there are different words in Japanese for each. Autumnal Equinox is Shuubun.)  I had a friend check it to make sure the Hiragana matches the Kanji properly, as well.  Huzzah for accuracy!  The actual KLK font is Raglan Punch, btw. :3

This was an absolute joy to work on, and might be the piece that finally gets me past the burnout I've been fighting since September.  Hope you like it! <3

Painted this in SAI as a Christmas gift.  I was totally shocked at how much it ended up looking like watercolor!

Well, last week my computer stopped working due to a fried power supply.  Luckily, it was the only thing to go, and I was able to salvage the harddrive.  I'd promised myself that the next time the thing died, I would build a new one, so after a week of tweaking, I'm on an all new rig.  16gb of ram, 3.9 ghz processor, ssd for the bigger programs, the works.  It's performing like a dream, and no more worrying about how many files I have open before it crashes.  XD  

In any case, I decided to start up my art-related Facebook account.  There is almost nothing on it right now, but here's the url:

I plan to still be checking DA about once a week, but if you want to contact me, facebook will be the more reliable place to do so.

Do you do requests and art trades?

Unfortunately I don't, I just don't have the time anymore.  :(  I do take commissions sometimes, but right now I'm working on a video game, so I can only take major commissions at $100+.

Happy Halloween! Pumpkin La 

You know these yokai you're drawing would look really cute as like stickers. You should sell them at a con or something. Maybe a button? I really want a button maker someday > _ <

Thanks!  Hope you had a Happy Halloween as well. ^_^  I've thought about doing art cards for the monster girls, or a very small art book!  Right now all my time/effort are going into the game, though.

Oh I know the game must be eating up all your time. >_< Plus, computer issues. Well, there's no rush. You can make stuff anytime. I have been thinking of making some cool fanart for your game. It's so pretty. :D
