Lunar Queen Levana by miss-a-r-t
Lunar Queen Levana

oil painting on canvas | 16” x 20”

it's is finally doooooone~~~ ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ

Queen Levana from the book series The Lunar Chronicles (fun fun fun books!!!)

I submitted this for a competition being put on by Macmillan (publisher). Really needed an excuse to paint D: Portraits are such a challenge!!

Tried my best to record myself painting this, so look forward to a sped up version on YouTube soon!!!!!!

East meets West in this direct portrait of unveiled Lunar Queen Levana!!

Just as the surface of her orbiting kingdom bends light into the eyes of all those on Earth, so too do her features and accoutrements reflect back onto any who bear witness to her. In this way, she both embodies her seat of power, and wields the thing that frightens her most…

Her clothing and hair ornaments are cut in a traditional Chinese fashion, yet the materials and jewelry are favored in styles worn by powerful monarchs of the Western world. Silver and pearls, both associated in many cultures with the moon, are found in abundance throughout her ensemble, further referencing her astrological domain.

The oval format of the canvas mimics the spherical shape of the moon itself. And in a playful nod to negative lunar power, an inverted crescent moon can be found throughout Lavana’s attire that will be instantly familiar to any Moonie or fan of Sailor Moon! (ू•ᴗ•ू )


Haha, well I have been TERRIBLE about my lack of activity on dA this year! D: And for that I apologize. (´°̥̥̥̥̥̥̥̥ω°̥̥̥̥̥̥̥̥`) sorry guyssss

This year has brought a lot of complexity into my live in positive channels involving wedding planning, work, and travel. I'm ecstatic to say that I'm now officially hitched WOOOO to my long-time partner in crime, who shall be henceforth referred to as Mr.ART heh heh.

I attended both AX and SDCC again this year and have fun pictures I hope to eventually share here;;;; There is already a YOUTUBE video overview available with footage from my trip HERE:


(I'm currently working on my SDCC version :3;;; Hope to have it up soon!)

But overall this has been a great year for me, MUCH BETTER than last year, which was a real struggle with school and health. Man, 2013 sucked. But it makes 2014 all that much better in comparison. (´∇`)

I hope to finish up my Jin!Madara cosplay soon!!!! And start up new cosplay projects! So stay tuned for (eventual) updates! xD

And THANK YOU SO MUCH guys for your continuing support, man I can never thank you enough!!!! (●´ω`●)

Thanks for the watch! <3

You are pretty much the "original" Madara cosplayer - at least, the one who has done one of the most kick-ass jobs on his armour. Kudos.
