Sailor Mercury Cosplay WIP by Scisyhp
Sailor Mercury Cosplay WIP
Damn straight!
I'm doing Sailor Mercury since she's my favorite Sailor Scout! The costume fits like a glove, breathes well, is super comfy, and so cute! :3

I used a tutorial on how to create one as well as obtain a pattern for a leotard for ice skating.

The torso is essentially complete if I were to do it for a photoshoot. But there's some minor tweaks that aren't visible in the pictures that I want to fix. Such as the leotard's neck's missing elastic, which isn't visible. There's also a gap that's located between one of the hip rolls and the skirt.

Anyways, enjoy!

Twilight Sparkle Cosplay Update #2 by Scisyhp
Twilight Sparkle Cosplay Update #2
Hey guys. This is nearly the finished product! New updates are:

-Added some dimension to the wings to make them appear like cartoon wings.
-Made a badge in the form of Twilight's Cutie Mark through an embroidery machine.
-The horn is now visible because I could now showcase the wig!
-Found some cardigan socks that were purple, lavender, and gray. They were bought at Target by sheer luck. I was originally searching for formal dress socks that were of a solid light color, like white.
-The wig! It finally arrived!

This will be debuting at Anime Iowa 2015! Try and find me!

Classic Sara by Scisyhp
Classic Sara

Do not anger her
Her wrath is most strong
Lest you'll vaporize

Completed the first scale drawing of Sara for the first time in a long time. If you don't know her, she is my personification of the strong nuclear force, the one responsible for holding atomic nuclei together. This poor character needed a massive update since most of her recent drawings had either her dress exerted under non-gravitational forces, or in a dramatic pose.

Enjoy! My next drawing will be Gwen!

Twilight Sparkle Cosplay WIP by Scisyhp
Twilight Sparkle Cosplay WIP
Hey there peeps! Been busy with researching J/Psi and whatnot. I've been spending more time on that than free time during this summer as opposed to last summer. 

This is what I've been working on in my spare time as well as Sara's concept art.

Twilight Sparkle is currently composed of the following:
A purple sweater vest that I bought off Amazon and sewed inside to make it more form-fitting.
A white lolita blouse, which is being reused from Meiling.
A navy blue pleated school uniform skirt bought off of Amazon.
Black pantyhose
Brown penny loafers.
A pair of craft-foam wings attached to a coat hanger.

I created a craft foam horn, but isn't shown here.

I have yet to get the wig in as well as create the embroidery patch for Twilight's symbol.

In addition to the usual crossplay getup, I've also installed hip pads made out of high density foam. They sure do make the difference. If you're completely new to my crossplay, prepare to be desensitized. This is nothing new to me, and I really enjoy sharing it with the rest of the cosplay club at ISU.

This and Meiling will be heading to Anima Iowa this summer.

Classic Winona Front by Scisyhp
Classic Winona Front
EDIT, April 15, 2015: I've properly scaled Winona so that she is at the proper height that I wanted. With EMily 5' 4" (163), I planned on having Winona being 4' 10". 

Back to drawings at last! I've finished up a cosplay season and returning my creative braincells to digital artwork. I'm continuing my series of front view concept art for each of the personas, since the art style has changed dramatically over the years. In addition their outfits have been in multiple poses.

I'll be doing Sara next and then Gwen. I'll also be finishing up the coloring of a commission I was asked of long ago before I went into cosplay. Once I'm done with that, I'll see about the princess drawings I wanted to do.

We're closing in on the end of the semester and everything is going alright. Research is going along quite nicely, as well as my computational physics class. Both of which have been extremely valuable experience. And hopefully we'll be nailing down a date for the oral prelim soon.

Stay safe!

Well, summer is finished and I'd figured I'd do an update.

One new report is that I'm hitting a break with some of my drawings. Right now my creative interests are with legos and fixing up cosplays. And so production times for these drawings has increased substantially. I am trying to finish up a commission for a friend on the Escapist as quickly as possible. Any other drawings that I planned on doing are on hiatus, if only because I've just been hanging on to for them for too long and I couldn't keep up my promise.

I'll let you guys know when I'm in better creative spirits.

Right now I'm also in the middle of being a full time RA with 6 credit hours worth of research this semester. There are no classes to worry about, so there's no more homework and no finals. However after next semester, I will likely be preparing the final touches on an oral prelim for my research.

I am joining a cosplay club this semester at ISU, and hopefully it'll be a good deal! They plan on doing their own internal panels at meetings to present tutorials on how to make cosplays, from sewing to working with foam or plastic. And, at least I think, it will help the production of my own cosplays (even if I've had to outsource a seamstress to make a whole costume every so often).

I did beat an abnormally large amount of games this summer:
Wasteland 1
Final Fantasy 3 on DS
Starcraft HotS single player campaign on Normal
Siege of Orgrimmar on WoW
Touhou 6, EoSD (1cc on Normal, Reimu A)

So that's about it. I'll let you guys know how the cosplay club turns out and when I'm in a better phase for drawing. Their first meeting is next Monday.

Stay safe!
-Nels.

United States
I am a graduate student in physics at Iowa State University. As of this moment I have completed my Bachelor's in Science in Physics and I'm currently working as a TA (teacher's assistant) while doing graduate classes at Iowa State University.

If you want to know my guidelines for commissions or requests please scroll down a few paragraphs.

I like physics, period. It's one of my favorite subjects, and I'm enjoying every minute of studying it while at college. And most of the time the drawings here are nerdy with references to all things science associated. Some of them are sketches, some of them are photoshopped colored versions of sketches. Just to let you guys know, you will not fully get the idea behind these nerdy pictures unless you know what the fundamental forces of nature are. And I'm not talking about earth, fire, air, and water. I'm talking about Gravity, Electromagnetism, Strong Nuclear, and Weak Nuclear. If you want to learn more, just ask me! I love to explain stuff! Again, this is me being a total nerd, so for right now just try and see these as four girls who are avatars of the four fundamental forces of nature. Enjoy! :)

Right now the writing is kind of on hiatus, and I don't know exactly when in my life I'm going to pick it up. However I do want to pick up where I left off which was with two wonderful girls on the purple planet of Alpha Centauri.

***Re: Commissions***
I have been noticing an increase in people giving me requests over the past year or so. So now I'm going to list out some parameters for some of you who wish to have me do something for them. I won't ask for a price other than your patience. While I am joyous to see you people want to see me do some artwork for you, please keep in mind that the artwork is a hobby, not a job. My job is researching nuclear physics and working as a teacher assistant. If I don't have time to work on something in my free time, I don't have time. So here are the parameters:
-No fetish artwork. By that I mean no sexual fetishes.
-No grotesque or gory artwork.
-No bodily fluids or solids involved.
-No fanservice or sexualization.
-If it involves my own physics OC's, in addition to the above it also needs to involve physics concepts in a strong way. That's been the impetus behind their drawings since their conception. If I don't have enough room within the parameters of the request to do something with physics, then the request will be declined.
-I have not done that much fan-art of published characters, so I really don't have anything against it. However if he/she/it is from a series that I haven't watched or read, I probably won't feel as motivated.
-I have little to no experience with drawing animals.
-Not so much of a parameter, but there have been people in the past who have thought that their original characters may seem too complicated. Complexity is irrelevant for any commission that I do. All that matters is if the bar has been raised enough so that I can learn.
-You like cute things? I like cute things as well. If I think your commission sounds cute, it's a guaranteed hit.
***------***
Also, if you're giving me llamas, I'm no longer sending out thanks. Why? Because comments on artwork are a lot more valuable than a useless badge that does nothing and represents nothing special.
