Debut...

With all due respect to the very sexy Aisha Tyler, the real star of today's posts is the completion of a commissioned piece by Vidyala of Manalicious of Mataoka:


I really tried not to pester her --you can't just turn on a faucet and have creativity pour out, and in my estimation, she created this beautiful piece in quick time. But...

...as impatient as I can be....

...and as much as I needed this...

...do you see what she added? The necklace...with the phial added?

...do you know what it's like to be really seen? To be heard?

And to me, she captured something I couldn't quite put my finger on, that the character of Mataoka is both sweet, but knowing. Innocence lost and found, I guess. Maybe I'm just projecting, but I see it.

Theme song: Something/George Harrison (my favorite Beatle, by the way)

    1. I wasn't happy with the readability, and before I could fix it JD made a comment. Nothing like a little preemptive critique to make me obsess. I was intending to change it because I knew Vid was working on this, so I just had to grit my teeth and relax. And yes, I am mercurial when it comes to decision making.

  11. Love love love it! I can't wait to get one of Nat...have to sit down and decide what she loves...mostly her fishing pole...she's a very sweet yet solitude-loving draenei, etc.

    I love how yours turned out! The angle, the slight tilt of her gaze, her slight smile...very pretty effect!
