I had posted my TE Megumi a while back, so I thought I'd show off some more non-pony art.

Kasumi Sindou from Touhou: Marine Benefit, drawn in only seven colors.


Pastel Otohime! (Also from Marine Benefit)


I love silent movies. I would do anything to see London after Midnight, but sadly it is lost (hopefully not forever, but probably). Here's Luna, the bat girl, drawn a semi-anime style.


An original piece titled "The Phoenix". I recently found an earlier version I had done.


Another original piece "The Black Rose Phantom". The ghost character has goat-style pupils.

Beautiful work! I do so love your fanciful style.

Also I love your taste in film. I too long to see the original London after Midnight, as I dearly love Chaney's acting and Tod Browning's directing (his Freaks will forever be in my top five classic horror films) I watched the restored Turner version, but still would do handstands to see the film in its original glory.

If the film was found and restored beautifully, it would be my dream come true. From what I could see from the stills, London after Midnight looked pretty awesome. The sets and costumes (specifically Lon Chaney as the vampire) were stunning. I've watch the reconstruction several times it's kind of my comfort movie I'm weird I know. I have a few ponified London after Midnight sketches around. I should scan them some time.

I would LOVE to see these sketches if you ever find them! What delightfully gothic, atmospheric pics they must be!

I couldn't find my ponified sketches. I did recently finish these two Day of the Dead versions! It took me forever to learn to draw Chaney's vampire. These two were perfect for that look.

AUGH! I LOVE THEM! They're so beautiful, and I love the attention to detail: Marigolds and candles.

His eyes are rhinestone because Chaney was a rare gem! It's really beautiful. I love your colour choices. He was such a sympathetic character, you really captured that.

I just wanna hug that poor vampire. Lon Chaney was a master at make up and expression.

He truly was a legendary thespian, paving the way in make-up effects for generations to come. Imagine how truly dedicated he was to his art, using painful braces to visually cripple himself for the cameras, knowing it would cost him physically. Some of the makes ups he used affected him as well, as they contained chemicals such as phosphates, causing him burns and skin problems.

Even in the end, he continued to act and during the filming of Thunder he contracted pneumonia which ended up being exasperated by the fake snow he inhaled. Months later he was dead of a hemorrhage in his throat. His quest for authenticity pretty much brought him to a bitter end. But his loyalty to the person he was portraying would never allow him to do anything short of his very best.

And I loved his sympathetic treatment of characters, always wanting to show them as willing to sacrifice themselves for the greater good, even his villains. He believed in the power of redemptive behaviour, and insisted on seeing it in his roles. I think of all the classic silent actors, he was the most thoughtful and intellectual.

(I'm writing a book on horror films, with segments on actors/actresses, can you tell who will be one of my subjects? LOL!)
