Do I want the summer to go on and on?  Or do I want for Halloween the autumn to come? 

Summer always feels so hectic, and I always have an incredibly difficult time focusing on work whenever it's nice and sunny out, so part of me is welcoming the cooler, gloomier days of autumn.  On the other hand... summer is basketball season for me, and I hate seeing that end.  Given how chaotic the past week has been, though, I think I'm leaning more towards wanting the autumn to hurry up and start already.

Although I managed to finish my fourth design for Fallene's wardrobe and successfully recolor the three previous designs, I still have to tackle all the other characters now... but I've also got my hands full with writing, which keeps becoming more and more time-consuming.  I would talk more about writing on here, except this really isn't the place for it.  I guess this is just a heads-up that there might be a gap between updates.  (I ended up getting rid of that WIP folder, since I still have a difficult time remembering to log in to this site, lol.)

Here's the fourth and final design I did for Fallene's wardrobe lineup.  I was really, really excited to color this because it had so many details— I felt really overwhelmed by it at times XD;;  In spite of the detailed paneling and the jewelry, though, this outfit didn't allow for a lot of different prints.  Most of it is very earthy, so I like how the red jumps out (but without feeling too bright).

I deleted the old version of this picture that I'd uploaded. 

Originally, this proved to be the most challenging outfit to color because the design is so simple... and that proved true again the second time around |DD  Finding an all-over print that looks good is really difficult, but I like how this turned out with the subtle hints of blue and gray popping through the dark brown.  Also, more stripes :3

Again, this is another re-coloring.  Although I wasn't too unhappy with the original version, I still felt that I could do much better... and I did!  The changes in color are subtle, but I think they make a big difference.  My favorite change was the addition of stripy stockings :D

I deleted the old version of this picture that I'd uploaded.  By the time I finished inking my fourth (and final) desire for Fallene's wardrobe, I was really unhappy with the color scheme that I'd used on the previous three... plus I really didn't like the awkward placing of the ruffles in the earlier version of this design.  So, I ended up re-inking A LOT in addition to adjusting the shading and finding a newer color scheme.

This newer version isn't perfect, but I think the costume looks much better now, and it actually looks decent beside the other three.

Hello! I'm Seitou (or Calanthe if you follow me on Tumblr). Recently, I've completed graduate school and gotten my MA in English, and now I'm eagerly pursuing a career as a novelist. My area of interest is 19th century Gothic fiction, which informs nearly all of my writing (the subject of my thesis was the vampire and Victorian Decadence :D). I'm also interested in fairy tales and folklore as well as the revenge tragedies of the late 16th and early 17th centuries.

I'm not as active on dA as I once was, since I'm busy with writing, but I still post work here whenever I can.
