Hey you guys!! I've finally FINALLY got my comic Tempest Red off and running! It makes me so excited to finally be doing it. If you guys are interested in seeing it, it is being housed here temporarily:…

and I also have a Patreon account for anyone who would like to help fund this hot mess!

..As well as a group here on DA! XD :icontempest-red:... whee! 


Sephirisse: Round 5 by The-MoonSquid
Sephirisse: Round 5
For this round of :icontheoc-pageantofda: 's our characters took a personality test to determine which specific prompt they would be given. Sephirisse ended up with "Inspirational Autumn", which required they in some way personify the emotions of the season... specifically the ideas of thoughtfulness, melancholy and mortality. Another part of the prompt read "Design clothes that suit your OC’s looks and personality, but also the cold weather of autumn". I chose to interpret the latter part as "dressing AS the cold weather of autumn" rather than "FOR the weather". 

Here we have Sephirisse in one of those couture style applique gowns layered with tons of nude silk chiffon which gradients into red at the hem. It was the coldest looking outfit I could think of, looking like snowfall or a chill wind, accompanied by deep red like the blood of the dying. Applique cuffs on her ankles and wrists are meant to create an almost prisoner feeling, as though a slave to mortality. As extra flavor, dolls of those she loves hang about her in a most haunting way! <3 

additional pieces for the pageant found here! ^_^

Made with Windsor & Newton watercolours, Copic multi liner pens, and Arches 140lb cold press paper :3

Sephirisse: Round 4
The fourth round of the :icontheoc-pageantofda: (theme "Runway of Modern Everyday Wear") was more than a little tricky. The bones of the concept was "a mix of practical style and trendy colors", and a list of colors to choose from was given to us.

If it weren't obvious, Sephirisse isn't from earth, but that wasn't my only hiccup. The Tasnhein Empire's elite pride their fashion choices on a fervent LACK of practicality, something of a mark of pride. The more ridiculous and artistic, the clearer it makes that you do not perform physical activities, the better. Being the heiress to such a society, Sephirisse has to be a forerunner of fashion... but, they all know she is a little quirky. She loves to get her hands dirty tending gickma (beasts of burden on her planet), and with not only a royal stable, but ass loads of money at her disposal? She had her own set of gickma handler's gear crafted, and the most fashionable set in existence. Not only is she ready to wrangle and ride those buggy beasts, but she could stroll the city streets, and none would be the wiser! 

For her main color, I chose midnight blue, which can be found on her carapace patterned vest, arm protectors, and thick stockings. The secondary color is olive green, found on her boots, sash, and vest / garter details. She is also wearing a tertiary grey, which can be seen as a protective under suit. 

My other pieces for the group can be found here! ^_^ Painted in watercolors and detailed with inky pens. Sephirisse (and the Gickma) belongs to me!

Slumber Party
Really wish I could have dedicated more time to this... But I just had to get it out of my system! After my Sephirisse and :icongi-ace:'s Slater were crowned masters of the second round in the OC pageant, the two decided to combine their parties into a master party of make overs and videogames! 
Sephirisse: Round 3 by The-MoonSquid
Sephirisse: Round 3
The happiest / most serene Sephirisse will ever look! She isn't much for hats, but she IS down for flamboyancy. The word "extravagant" in the prompt lit her up to her very core, and ran with it. She is so excited to have such a crazy piece of art on her head, she hasn't even noticed that she lost half of her cookies! Done for :icontheoc-pageantofda: 's third round, "Picnic of Extravagant Hats" with Windsor Newton watercolor paints and Derwent inkblocks! :) 

Sephirisse is my character! Just realized that I made her neck a lot shorter than it should be... ahh well XD
