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.




Millennium Osaka by Lookafar
Millennium Osaka
Another homage, of sorts - honoured the late great Satoshi Kon and his fabulous award-winning movie 'Millennium Actress'. If you haven't see it yet, put it at the top of your bucket list, NOW!

Otherwise - nothing new here. Everyone has done this sort of thing before - swapping characters into another scene. I drew nothing from scratch except that single hair in the middle of her forehead.

This was a challenge nevertheless! Every face had a different orientation, size and colour.  But I got there. 
(THIS IS THE THIRD VERSION. I keep seeing little details I want to fix.)
Yotsuba and Flowers
This is an animated version of the original scene in Kiyohiko Azuma's glorious "Yotsuba&" manga - available via the World Wide Interweb! 
See it right here:…

No original content from me - as usual. 

(In fact it is a leftover from the Sakaki-Running sequence I've yet to finish. I'd planned to include a 'guest appearance' crossing the scene behind Sakaki-san. But since my ambitions always exceed my ability, I dropped the idea.
So Yotsuba-chan and Fuuku-san get their own moment instead! Yay!) 
Run.Sakaki (Shadow Test)
Part Two in my current project honoring the work of
and of "Azumanga Daioh" creator: Kiyohiko Azuma.

Sakaki-San is now fully clothed and skinned, and is running slightly faster than before (better streamlining!)

I took the liberty of redesigning her sports uniform to show off her midriff (this would NEVER happen in a real Japanese high school!!) - just to show off her navel. (Hey: Now we're all navel-gazing!) no seriously, it was to try and retain something of nsio's line work. Ditto the natural creases and seam lines on her rompers (Stop perving, boys!). I even managed to replicate the lines on her limbs as reflective highlights. 

So what next? 
Well the hint is in the cover art of "Hair Test".
Next week.
Sakaki Running, HAIR TEST

I became enchanted by an animation created by

With nsio's permission, I've hereby begun another homage - in this instance to nsio, AND to Kiyohiko Azuma. My sincerest gratitude and admiration to two world-class artists, both streets ahead of me.

This is a 'practice-piece' in advance of the final version. I wanted to first test out a method of converting nsio's muscular/chubby OC 'Sayaka' into the leggier Sakaki-San, and also test her hair motion. (NOT EASY!!) Hence the title.

And since I love how the original moves, especially how the anatomy lines sway so hypnotically, I want to put this here to signal the source, as well as the destination.

As I love curves, Sakaki-San is finally going to be ALL WOMAN (instead of just her boobs).

The red hair? I have my reasons!
The cover image? Purely a contrivance. (Or is it?)

Stacy in a Little Black Dress by Lookafar
Stacy in a Little Black Dress
Another homage to a great Deviant:

As always, I'm only adding color, while finding ways to preserve the original line art, style and characterization.  Here's the original:…

My gratitude to 14-bis for allowing me to tinker. It was a good challenge.

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!


Lookafar's Profile Picture

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.

Ever had a fetish that no one else seems to have, so there are no pictures of it?
Lookafar Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm not admitting anything here! (But yes, theoretically, that could happen to a few poor wretches. How lonely!!) 
tophxomi Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm one of them.

Well I for one am intrigued, but I am entirely too much the gentleman to ask, so as to spare you the anguish of exposing your private anguish in such a public place.

hello i was wondering if you plan to put powerpuff girls z and panty and stocking underwater?:)
Lookafar Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Was meaning to tell you that your reference to Panty and Stocking set me off in a very different direction.

It's up now, called "Lisa gets her Panty on".
Not quite what  you were wanting, but I want to acknowledge the nudge you gave me.
COMPUTERMANMIK428 Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2015
sorry it didn't settle well with you.
Lookafar Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
<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?
