Illustration Round-Up | Hatsune Miku
Do you guys know of Hatsune Miku and Vocaloid? Vocaloid is a singing voice synthesizer, and you can choose Miku as your voice to use in the software to make songs. According to her official site, Hatsune Miku means “The first Sound from the Future”, and her voice has been featured in over 100,000 songs.
Here are some stunning illustrations by various artists of Miku herself:
What do you think of Miku? I’ve never used Vocaloid before, but Mike is featured in one of my favorite, silliest videos on the internet, which you can watch here.
Also: if there’s any specific character/game/show/genre/ANYTHING you’d like to see featured here, let me know! I’m always open to suggestions.
Throwback Thursday | 5
I’m back with another Throwback Thursday! Aka the series where I share old, sometimes embarrassing works of mine.
I almost didn’t post these because I can’t find credits for all the images, but I wanted to share my “story” anyway. These two were made circa 2006, when I was 100% dedicated to my “collage” phase. My website was called Clandestine, and I even had a matching LiveJournal. I know. Way cool.
Image credits (that I searched very hard for): Kate Spade 2006 BisBee Handbags by (Tim Walker) | Vogue US March 2005 : Paint the Town (Steven Meisel)
(If you happen to know any other credits, let me know!)
So now that I’ve shared a few of my old throwbacks, I’d love to see yours! Do you have any old drawings or designs you’d be willing to share?
Product & Print | 077
Happy Tuesday! This Product & Print features one of my absolute favorite themes, space. I’m sure if you dug through my archives, I’d have some sort of space/planet/galactic themed post every month. What can I say? There are just so many fun and colorful prints, and unique products, that I could post about this every day.
The Big Planet by Nina Geometrieva | Nebula Ring from AChicFairytale
I would love to have this colorful poster hanging in my living room, and could wear that ring with almost every outfit. Do you have any fun space-related prints or little products?
Wow, it’s my first Friday post of 2015…exciting! This week has been so cold, so I thought I’d celebrate that in today’s post.
This year I plan on taking a vacation overseas, and Iceland is high on that list. This photo of Iceland’s Blue Lagoon found in Conde Nast Traveler just makes me want to visit more. That place is one of the main reasons I’d like to visit.
I LOVE this Periwinkle cosplay by Tink-Ichigo, aka Marina. I’m a big fan of the Disney Fairies franchise, and Secret of the Wings is my favorite. Have any of you seen this movie, or any of the Fairy movies?
Do I have Frozen on the brain or what? This week I already showcased some amazing Elsa cosplays, and today I’m sharing this gorgeous concept art by Brittney Lee. Brittney is such a talented artist, and I love all of her illustration work. She actually worked on the Frozen movie, and her blog archives are definitely worth a visit.
What are you up to this weekend?
Cosplay Showcase 6 | Elsa
Anyone sick of Frozen yet? Yes/No? I admit, for most of last year I was sick of seeing Elsa or Anna, or hearing one rift of “The cold never bothered me anyway”. But now that it’s actually winter and I’m seeing snow, I totally get Frozen, and seeing all the gorgeous Elsa costumes makes me smile. I thought today I’d share some amazing Elsa cosplays with you.
Lisa Rosenberg and Meagan Marie
So what do you think…are you over the Frozen craze? Or do you think it’s still going strong? I think these ladies all did a fantastic job. The amount of details that go into Elsa are just incredible!
