I have no idea if I still have any regular followers on here, but just in case I do, I thought I would tell you guys: I have a patreon now.

Patreon is a website where you can pledge an ongoing monthly amount to support artists that you like. (In return, you get access to little perks.) I am going to be moving soon and making some huge changes in my life, and I am seriously strapped for funds, and I thought, hey why not, I’ll set this thing up.

Pledges can be as low as $2 a month. Go check it out, every little bit helps.
Deep-Sea Clowns by littlecrow
Deep-Sea Clowns

Deep-Sea Clowns

This was a commission for a friend who asked me to illustrate a very bizarre dream he had. I hope he liked it! And now I can say that I have done an illustration of deep-sea clown angler fish monster things attacking a submarine.

Sherlock and Mycroft doodle by littlecrow
Sherlock and Mycroft doodle
When they were kids, Sherlock would crawl into Mycroft’s bed if he had a bad dream. Of course, if Sherlock was in Mycroft’s bed, then Redbeard would want to be there, too.

Sailor Moon, Ukiyo-e Style by littlecrow
Sailor Moon, Ukiyo-e Style

Prints available here.

Next project completed: the Sailor Scouts done in the style of traditional Japanese woodblock prints! (circa late 1700s)

I had already researched ukiyo-e in college once to write a (very bad) paper, but it was fun to go back and do it again. TBH I thought this would be a quick, easy thing to rattle off, but the simple look og traditional-style Japanese art is deceptive. Like much of Japanese aestheticism, it’s about taking something that actually takes a lot of skill and effort, and making it look easy and elegant. Lesson learned.

Sailor Moon, Sailor Venus and Sailor Mars are based off of everyday fashions for courtesans, Sailor Mars is based off of the traditional shrine maiden (miko), and Sailor Jupiter is based off of onna-bugeisha, or female warriors. The ponytail is traditionally a boy’s hairstyle, but I mean it’s Sailor Jupiter, she has to have a ponytail. The word on Sailor Moon’s obi (belt) says moon, the word on Sailor Mars’ jacket says fire, and the little bunnies on Sailor Moon’s kimono are because kind of like how we say there’s a man in the moon, in Japan they say there’s a rabbit on the moon, and the Japanese show is full of rabbit puns. (for instance, Sailor Moon’s Japanese name literally means rabbit)

Etc.

I originally had this coloured in a much more muted colour scheme more in line with the actual colours of the traditional woodblock prints, but it was getting difficult to recognize the figures for who they were, so I saturated them and matched them closer to the cartoon colour scheme to make them more identifiable.

Hi. Would you be interested in collaborating on a Doctor Who fan project? Totally non-commercial, of course, as I've no intention of upsetting the BBC. You'd get points for your effort tho! Please look at [link] for details. Thanks for your time.
