The Star by AlyssaStehle
The Star
I finished it~! 

The star placement took a while.  Almost as long as coloring the character.  For "bear suit" reference I used the Annie Lennox music video for A Whiter Shade Of Pale.  I wanted a soft cute looking costume.  The first sketch I drew like this was too sexy almost.

Sailor Suit And Poppies by AlyssaStehle
Sailor Suit And Poppies
I was browsing online for poppy reference photos and I came across a beautiful piece of fabric.  I wanted to hang it up like a tapestry.  The character is a cartoon version of myself.  The fishnets are supposed to be peach colored but I was too lazy to do it right…The brown boots I'm wearing have recently died.  I loved them to death.  But as a replacement I got some red go-go boots <3  
I’m being wrapped in delicate chains
Little bells sparkle at the distance
As I dance in the moon’s silver rains
Quietly through sleepless clouds of gauze
I will ascend into heaven

The earth rolls slowly beneath my feet
This is the swing that flipped me inside out
Heads or tails, a coin abandoned in the street
Carelessly kicking up dirt as I ran
I was singing in my sleep
-Inside Out- (2009)
Do you remember Nickelodeon's "Inside Out Boy"? it was because of him that throughout my childhood I'd always imagine being turned inside out if I went over the bar on the swing set.  I love swings.  They are very relaxing.  I'm impressed I was able to rhyme in this poem.  Thats unusual for me.  
Goodbye, goodbye
A thousand times goodbye
Fall asleep, fall asleep
A thousand whispers from the sky

Return, return to the stars
Endless inspiration from above
Like the moon, born anew
Singing a song of love

Hello, hello
A thousand times hello
Fall asleep, fall asleep
A thousand whispers from long ago
-Return- (2009)
I don't remember my inspiration for this poem very well, but I remember my grandpa's interpretation very well.  He says it was about the time right before you fall asleep when you're memories are almost like dreams.  He says it's exactly like falling asleep.  I always liked this simple poem.   
I went to a neighboring city for 4 days.  We were trying to get to Colorado but my friend's car got stolen.  So we got around on the bus and walking.  It wasn't so bad since the weather has been surprisingly warm for October.  Aside from the fun memories I got some fun "souvenirs"  Like red go-go boots and a couple Deee-Lite CD's.  An added bonus is when I returned home our land lady left me some empty pots for next spring.  

I'm a little crazy for pots, because we live in an apartment I can't very well rip up the ground, but I can have potted plants….like over 30 of them….right?  I mostly grow marigolds from seeds I've collected from previous summers but last weekend I acquired some plants from my grandpa I intend to keep.  I call them "Geezer plants"

sorry but do you mind submitting your deviations to :iconanti-editorsalliance: to the correct folders. that's the only reason why they are being denied. great pieces
AlyssaStehle Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Alright I re-submitted to what I sincerely believe to be the correct folders. If there is a problem with anything please explain it to me in detail so I know for the future.
