6am in Nagano… I shot these all within 1 block of each other on the same street while traveling on assignment last month through Japan.
She had blue skin,
And so did he.
He kept it hid
And so did she.
They searched for blue
Their whole life through,
Then passed right by-
And never knew.

My sister is accepting commissions! She is a fantastic artist, and does pixel art very well, but she is also amazing in other styles, too!
I asked her for Magik from the X-men. I am trying to get an awesome collection of the women from the X-men from a bunch of different artists. It’s pretty cool so far! I will post them later.

Hi! I am currently opening Commissions! Otakon is coming this week, and I’d like to raise some cash quick so I can afford things there. I have no registered number of slots open or closed, and only a limited amount of time. Any commissions asked for during August 7-9 will be late due to me returning home from Otakon.
Things I won’t draw!
- NSFW situations of any kind. Actually, pretty much everything else is free range unless it is offensive!
At the moment I am also limited to Pixel work, demonstrated in pictures 4,5, and 9, and traditional artwork. Other examples of what I’ve done can be found in my #artstuff tag on my tumblr.
Th rates will be $7 for traditional no color and $10 traditional color. Paintings will be $10-15 dollars depending on size. Sprites will be $4-7 depending on size.
To pay me, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org using Paypal only. Thank you!
Sophie, the girl, is given a spell and transformed into an old woman. It would be a lie to say that turning young again would mean living happily ever after. I didn’t want to say that. I didn’t want to make it seem like turning old was such a bad thing — the idea was that maybe she’ll have learned something by being old for a while, and, when she is actually old, make a better grandma. Anyway, as Sophie gets older, she gets more pep. And she says what’s on her mind. She is transformed from a shy, mousy little girl to a blunt, honest woman. It’s not a motif you see often, and, especially with an old woman taking up the whole screen, it’s a big theatrical risk. But it’s a delusion that being young means you’re happy.
