I acknowledge that some of my mash-ups are combinations of the digitised works of others - images highly available off the internet. If there is any 'art' it is in how I see new possibilities in the original poses and spend my time working to achieve that idea. I've tried to acknowledge all sources and originating artists.

I hope you enjoy the results. Thanks to those of you who fav my work. I'm honoured.

P.S. If you notice that I've taken something of *yours* off the Net, please leave a message. I'll gladly acknowledge you as the originator and add a link here to your homepages. Or remove.




Chiyo's Turn by Lookafar
Chiyo's Turn
Fair enough - Chiyo-Chan wanted to do what her classmates were doing. Borrowing a pair of knee-highs she joyously took the plunge. 

The final surviving photographer, about to get out, turned in time to snap some adorable photos that soon went world-wide via the internet. Onya, Chiyo-Chan; saved the day!

- So, who's left?

So what's with kneehighs in the pool / photo thing? This:…
Sakaki takes the Plunge by Lookafar
Sakaki takes the Plunge
After Kagura-San fled the scene in embarrassment, Sakaki-San realised it was up to her to redeem the reputation of Higashinishi Kitaminami High School. Hastily donning her customised sukumizu, she took the plunge for some close-ups.

Several of the photographers had to be dragged from the pool after inhaling water, but some satisfactory shots were finally secured.

When Bikinis Go Bad by Lookafar
When Bikinis Go Bad
Kagura-San, being who she is, could not pass up the opportunity of diving into a pool full of photographers while wearing knee-high socks. But, as it happens all to often in anime, things went embarrassingly wrong. 
Fortunately, they were all gentlemen and assisted her back into her errant undies.

After that she fled back to the dressing room and took it out on Osaka.

Tomo Gatecrashes the (Pool) Party by Lookafar
Tomo Gatecrashes the (Pool) Party
Hearing that Yomi had a photoshoot on, Tomo decided to jump in too, socks and all - in this case 'all' includes a pair of Y-fronts. Honestly, I've no idea where she got them from.
Or if they're clean. At least she had her sukumizu on underneath. (Very suspicious!)

The photographers went nuts over Tomo, so Yomi got out in a snit. Bye, Yomi.

2014 rather sucked, actually. But I didn't know what was in store for me on Jan 10th when I put up my first deviation for the year: "Vanellope Von Jamesdean" Vanellope Von Jamesdean by Lookafar - a very typical mash-up, and one that I'm very proud of. (The mashuppery, since the original images are not mine.) Fave detail: the reflection in the wet road.

Since then: TWENTY-EIGHT DEVIATIONS! Some being really quick and dirty (borrowed images (always acknowledged) mashed-up or modded.) But significantly a lot of Gif animations - THIRTEEN OF THEM. They DID take a lot of time, and strained my creativity to the max. 

My personal fave: Coffee Tron: Coffee-Tron! by Lookafar - Original Character design (effectively my first), and a load of complex drawing (mostly from scratch) and tinkering to get her to run. Fave detail: the reflection in the shiny counter-top.

Two big series started (and none of them yet finished). And the usual random 'ah-hah' moments.

As to the rest of 2014 - as mentioned it sucked. I became frightfully sick for three months (to the pneumonia-stage), and two valuable people died, 5 weeks apart. Many other painful loses, too. I just haven't cried enough.
I guess Deviant Art is my safe haven, and my 'release'.

Currently my "Osaka Go!" animations have been fun. More story-telling, with a dash of comedy. Hope you're enjoying them.

Thanks for the watches, and all the faves.  Means a lot to me!

Cheers, & happy bloody merry Seasonal Festive Day to ya all!

Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
I was born before TV, before Elvis rolled his pelvis, before Gene Pitney even LEFT Tulsa, before anyone thought of M*A*S*H (but while it was really happening). Louis was still tootled his horn, cars still had running boards and headlights like toads' eyes. All telephones were black and Men still wore Hats. I played in dirt, I teased cows from the trees, I walked to school and I scraped my knees. I fidn't dit, yet damn it I could draw!
A long time later, I came here to hide my secrets.

<sigh> This could turn into an *industry*!

I'm sorry, no. No plans as such. I've three more to do in this Azumanga series, then get back to more pressing projects.

how about finding an artist who already loves those characters and asking him/her?

No, no, not at all. 

text-based communication is tricky, sometimes. I wasn't at all upset by your question.

A belated thanks, Mr Joey Cool. I think I was frantic on Facebook that day.
