Wondervixen: The Kitsune Superhero

Hello blogger munchkins!  So fall is in full swing now, it's been raining almost non-stop here in Vancouver...which has made for perfect excuses to stay snuggled at home with movies, good books and art! 

I was asked recently by a good friend, who runs a comic in the UK called Reynard City , who is hosting a calendar contest and asked if I'd like to make an entry.  How could I say no?  I love his characters!  I've been following their adventures for just over two years now and what a joy it's been to watch the growth of his brain baby.  It's about three crime fighting hero's that transform into foxes.  I chose Wonder vixen for this contest since she's strong of will, mind and she has a wonderful showgirl like figure that I always like drawing in my ladies and gorgeous flowing hair.  ( I just cannot go on enough about how much I love to draw lots of hair. *squees*)  I originally intended to go with a summer like background...but changed my mind once I saw how nice the fall colours complemented Wonder vixen's fox fur and tail.  She took a little longer to complete...about three weeks as I've been distracted with job searching and pounding my brain over what to name my Etsy shop.  Which I've been stumped with for the last few months. *laughs* I'm so slow to start anything. Ha!

Oh! And before I dash, I wanted to share an awesome pinterest find I stumbled across.  This little cup of heaven is perfect for a cold night and will warm you from head to toes.  When I first made it I thought I died and went to heaven! 

This originally came from a Tumblr post (the art for the recipe is theirs too) and I thank them deeply for posting this...for it is gold!  It's very easy to make.  Make sure though, that you do not use whipped butter...but just plain regular butter.  I stood in my kitchen on my first taste of this...unsure if was a good butter beer recipe...but ended up yelling out, "Yum!" at least 10 times. *laughs*  Try it...if you love sweet things, you'll love this.

Now, off to watch some Harry Potter movies and finish my current paper doll.  Have a wonderful, creative weekend, dear friends.  Thank you for reading.  Cheers!


  1. I can't wait for rainy days to come down here! They are the absolute best excuse to stay home, bundle up and paint all day :)

    I love your Kitsune! That tail is awesome! I always dread doing hair...I love the way flowing locks look, but, I'm still not great at depicting I always enjoy seeing your girls with all your amazing details and gorgeous hair :)

    I'm so happy you are doing more mermaids! I can't wait to see their costumes and little are so creative!

    You've been so sweet to make sure you stop by and say Hi! I've been bad at keeping up with regular postings (or should I say interesting posts, anyways...haha!)and I am feeling pressed for time to get things in Blogland, Etsy World and Real Life ready for the upcoming Holidays....

    Glad you'll be opening a store's the it soon if you can :)

    Sending you big hugs...mmmm, you smell like butter and cinnamon!
