(Big Black & White version)
This one is inspired by the powerful drawings
of Angie Wang (and the last CR Fashion Book Issue)
Finished another design for my Design by Humans store! Check it out!
Here’s a thing I’ve had around in my head for a while!
Okay, so I’m pretty sure that by now everyone at least is aware of Steampunk, with it’s completely awesome Victorian sci-fi aesthetic. But what I want to see is Solarpunk – a plausible near-future sci-fi genre, which I like to imagine as based on updated Art Nouveau, Victorian, and Edwardian aesthetics, combined with a green and renewable energy movement to create a world in which children grow up being taught about building electronic tech as well as food gardening and other skills, and people have come back around to appreciating artisans and craftspeople, from stonemasons and smithies, to dress makers and jewelers, and everyone in between. A balance of sustainable energy-powered tech, environmental cities, and wicked cool aesthetics.
A lot of people seem to share a vision of futuristic tech and architecture that looks a lot like an ipod – smooth and geometrical and white. Which imo is a little boring and sterile, which is why I picked out an Art Nouveau aesthetic for this.
With energy costs at a low, I like to imagine people being more inclined to focus their expendable income on the arts!
Aesthetically my vision of solarpunk is very similar to steampunk, but with electronic technology, and an Art Nouveau veneer.
So here are some buzz words~
Tailors and dressmakers!
Stained glass window solar panels!!!
Education in tech and food growing!
Less corporate capitalism, and more small businesses!
Solar rooftops and roadways!
Communal greenhouses on top of apartments!
Electric cars with old-fashioned looks!
No-cars-allowed walkways lined with independent shops!
Renewable energy-powered Art Nouveau-styled tech life!
Can you imagine how pretty it would be to have stained glass windows everywhere that are actually solar panels? The tech is already headed in that direction! Or how about wide-brim hats, or parasols that are topped with discreet solar panel tech incorporated into the design, with ports you can stick your phone charger in to?

Dunguard/Redmer Indirya sketch #2. Usually her hair is a real eye catcher…except when she has to wash it. The amount of Telvanni bug musk and dreugh wax tonic she uses in one wash is INSANE.
Hahaha… This on dash perfect timing.
DARK FAE. Not hard ppl
So I finally created my Bayonetta persona! It was a tough choice, but I ended up going with a lumen sage instead of an umbra witch. If you cast Balder and the ambigous, masked sage aside; the lumen sages are actually super awesome. (well, to me at least TTwTT) They basically have the same powers as the witch’s without the horrible price. I could do without being dragged to hell, thank you very much.
I’m still deciding on a weapon, but I want it to be something projectile. @w@
