Tomoyo's Choice, Leiyun's Determination by wishluv
Tomoyo's Choice, Leiyun's Determination
Happy International New Trials Day!!!

I vowed last time that the next picture I upload won't be another Sakura and Syaoran fanart, much as I love to draw those. But I finally did draw a color picture of older Li Leiyun, which is long overdue. Can you guess who is who in this picture? They're mostly original characters from my fanfiction the New Trials of Card Captor Sakura. But you can spot a chibi-Syaoran in the right-hand corner of the picture.

This fanart started out with me wanting to draw Daidouji Tomoyo and Li Leiyun together in a picture--and then after drawing Lei, I thought it was weird to just have the two of them together, so I ended up adding a whole bunch of characters. I guess you can call this group the Anti-Alliance of the Stars of some sorts. I've been meaning to do an "enemy" group picture for ages, so it worked out well. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out, considering I was going to just use this as a rough character study sketch initially.

From top left, going clockwise, it's Black Dragon Li Jinyu, Li Leiyun, Chang Erika, young Leiyun with young Li Syaoran, Kara Reed and of course, Tomoyo. I think Tomoyo came out dainty and ladylike in this picture. I had to redraw Kara's dress three times before I settled for this design--I think the main problem is Kara won't be caught dead in wearing a princess dress. For me, Erika is one of the easiest characters to draw in New Trials--I think it's because she has sharp features. Leiyun always is a hard character for me to draw because he's such a chameleon, but I am satisfied with how he turned out this time. And Jinyu's character design has turned out a lot more bishounen then I originally intended. Who is your favorite here?

I can't believe we are now celebrating 15 years of New Trials of Card Captor Sakura! wishluv.revolutionhosting.net. I wouldn't be here without all of your support, so this one is dedicated to the New Trials fan community over at the Yahoo Group groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/ne… and Facebook www.facebook.com/groups/223023…

Sakura on her Birthday at Tokyo Tower by wishluv
Sakura on her Birthday at Tokyo Tower

Sakura stood on the top level of the Tokyo Tower, hands pressed against the glass, overlooking the cityscape from 250 meters above, minutes before her 17th birthday. She had never gotten a proper chance to appreciate the view from the special observation deck, 100 meters higher than the main observatory and completely empty. It was closed off to the public since it was under renovation. She sometimes forgot how bright Tokyo at night was—so bright that all the stars in the night sky were drowned out by the glare of the city lights.

It was nearly midnight.

She heard footsteps behind her but did not turn around. For she could see reflection of a handsome boy with mussed brown hair and in a black suit in the window. Sakura took a deep breath and turned to face him. They had last seen each other less than a fortnight ago in the Hong Kong harbors. But they just stared at each other in silence, as if to desperately imprint each other’s faces there atop Tokyo Tower, and for this moment be suspended above the bustling city, just the two of them.

Though it was nighttime, and the special observation was dimly lit, outside, a myriad of neon lights lit the Tokyo streets like bursts of twinkling stars of red, blue, green and yellow.

He spoke first. “I’m here.”

“You made it.” She noticed that his face was still flushed, and his chest was heaving.

He glanced at his watch. “Barely. I could’ve gotten here sooner if the darned elevators to the special observatory were in operation.”

“How did you manage to sneak away?”

“Wasn’t too hard,” replied Syaoran. “The Li mansion is infested with cockroaches, so most of the Li delegation is holding meetings at a hotel nearby. Uncle Wutai thinks I’m back at the Li mansion exterminating—Leiyun thinks I’m at the hotel since I’m terrified of roaches.”

“Cockroaches?”

“Don’t ask.” Syaoran said with a sigh, staring at his watch.

“You can’t just leave me with that.” Sakura’s eyes were twinkling. “Really, cockroaches?”

And he placed his forefinger on her lips. “Shush now.” The minute hand reached twelve’ o’clock and in the distance, they heard the chiming of a clock tower. “Happy birthday, Sakura.”

She just stared at him with those iridescent green eyes that seemed puzzled and somewhat amused.

“I have a present for you.”

“I thought you would have forgotten,” said Sakura finally, the phantom trace of the fingers that had brushed against her lips burning. She wanted to add, in light of recent events, with the death of the Great Elder and with the whole hassle of the funeral and traveling, how had he the time to remember? And she realized, he had chosen this specific time and place for this reason.

“It’s just something small,” he said, holding out a rectangular box the size of a book. “I didn’t have time to wrap it.”

“Can I?” she asked, him taking the box. He nodded. She opened the lid and gasped. It was a beautiful gold enamel comb in the shape of clusters of stars of various sizes. She lifted it from the delicate petal paper and realized with a sinking feeling by the weight it was real gold.

“Thank you, Syaoran, I’ve never seen anything so lovely,” said Sakura, turning to the window—because it was dark outside, she could use the reflection in the glass in lieu of a mirror. Carefully, she fastened the comb to the left side of her short golden brown hair, so that it swept back loose tendrils from her face, giving a diadem-like effect.

As if he couldn’t help himself, he reached over and brushed away a few strands of hair and helped reposition the comb in the most flattering angle. “It looks pretty. Like you have shooting stars caught in your hair.”

Happy Birthday Sakura April 1, 2015!

I sketched this fanart in 2013 before I wrote the quoted scene from Chapter 70: The Eye of the Dragon. It was the concept art for the chapter. I think if my fanfic New Trials were a manga, this would make a good color title page. I initially just drew Sakura. And then, I wanted to include Syaoran's back. I actually haven't posted a proper S+S fanart in quite a while. Sakura herself was very easy to draw. But I redrew Syaoran three times--I wonder what he is thinking here. The overall ambiance seems somewhat prom-like, but this is a very cataclysmic moment for those of you who have read the chapter.

I also wanted to incorporate Tokyo Tower in the picture somehow, though Sakura and Syaoran are inside Tokyo Tower. Finally, I settled for a reflection on a building, though I'm not how exactly that works. And there is some subliminal advertising going on by Sakura's grandfather's corporation, if you can spot it.

In case you are wondering, Sakura's hair pin really does exist--it was inspired off of the Rodarte star pins that were all the rage around three years ago, but truthfully, the whole star cluster concept has been around for ever, and I'm sure CLAMP's been doing it even longer as well. I was obsessed with star jewelry for a very long time. When I first got my ears pierced in high school, the first four pairs of earrings I bought were star shaped--and I still wear them quite often. I wanted to incorporate stars into Sakura's dress design, but they were such a pain to draw and color--I don't think I'll be doing stars again for a while. And I can't wait till Syaoran is out of mourning. I never thought I'd get sick of drawing him in black suits, but I have. Also, come spring, I want to dress Sakura and Syaoran in pretty pastel colors.

Happy April Fools' Day!

Warrior and the Angel: Queen Nadeshiko's Knight by wishluv
Warrior and the Angel: Queen Nadeshiko's Knight
Queen Nadeshiko and her Knight, Li Ryuuren.

This is a picture of Sakura's mother, Amamiya Nadeshiko from Card Captor Sakura (and Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle). She is with my original character, Li Ryuuren, Syaoran's father. I drew this more painting-like than my usual style. It's another one of my older fanarts, and started out as a one-layer doodle, but I really like the way Ryuuren turned out, which is rare. He has long hair in this picture, which also is pretty rare.  

I envision this can be a painting of artist Shing's "Warrior and Angel" series. It can also be an appearance in Chapter 61: Fantasia in Memoriam of my fanfic "The New Trials of Card Captor Sakura." wishluv.revolutionhosting.net/…

 ******

Chapter 61: Fantasia in Memoriam

Nadeshiko’s long violet hair was unbound. It blew back gently in the wind like billowy purple clouds. Ryuuren sat down next to her on the golden grass. The watched over little hill over looking the pastures and woods in silence. Only the farthest edges had begun to decay.

“Do you think they went back safely?” Nadeshiko asked without looking up.

“Yes, I’m sure,” replied Ryuuren, closing his blue eyes.

“Syaoran-kun has grown up to be a very dependable young man,” said Nadeshiko, twirling her finger in the grass. “Much more trustworthy than his father, I say.”

“I don’t think Sakura is half as clumsy and spacey as you are but definitely just as stubborn.”

“If it’s the two of them, I think they’ll manage.” Nadeshiko smiled. “No, I’m sure everything will be all right for them.”

Ryuuren smiled softly, turning to glance at Nadeshiko. “I believe so too.” He held out a hand. “Now, shall we return, my dear queen?”

“Yes, my noble knight.” Nadeshiko took Ryuuren’s hands.

Together, they ran down the hill and jumped into a prism-colored entrance. The queen and her knight disappeared from the kingdom as if they had never been there in the first place. Where did they disappear to? Some stories say that they ran off together and lived a quiet, humble life away from the public eye. Other stories say they ceased to be, dying in each others’ sweet embrace. Other stories still say that they parted ways after they entered through a magical doorway to another world. Who knows which story is true?

Card Captor Sakura in Frozen by wishluv
Card Captor Sakura in Frozen
When I first saw Disney's Frozen movie a little less than a year ago, I immediately wanted to draw Anna's green coronation day dress on Kinomoto Sakura from Card Captor Sakura. And I loved her hairstyle as well. I drew this right after I saw the movie, but I'm just posting it now, after adding some final touches. Can you guess who is who?

Sakura is of course Princess Anna, Kero-chan is starring as Olaf the snowman. And Queen Elsa is modeled by our lovely Kara Reed from my fanfiction New Trials of Card Captor Sakura. wishluv.revolutionhosting.net/…

Frankly, I had this huge dilemma of whether or not to make Syaoran Elsa or not. I mean, he played Princess Aurora pretty well for the Sleeping Beauty play. But at the end of the day, I thought Syaoran would not be happy having to dress up in drag for a second fairytale. Not that Kara would be any happier, but I thought she would match the Elsa character well if Seijou High School were to ever put on a Frozen musical. Those of you who wish to may imagine Elsa is Syaoran in a blond wig though.

For those of you who have read my fanfic, you know I wrote a whole chapter inspired off Han Christian Anderson's "The Snow Queen," New Trials Chapter 50: A Winter's Conundrum. wishluv.revolutionhosting.net/… I was looking forward to Frozen since planning/production stage. Yes, I'm one of those geeks who looks up Disney's future projects. While I will always remain an adamant proponent of traditional 2D art, Frozen has come the closest to invoking the glory days of Disney in years. Now, if Disney just brings back its 2D studio.

I also uploaded an Elsa solo version here: <da:thumb id="502298569">

Wind and Sky - Snow Queen Elsa by wishluv
Wind and Sky - Snow Queen Elsa
I know I usually post anime fanart or artwork for my fanfiction New Trials of Card Captor Sakura here wishluv.revolutionhosting.net/, but I actually doodle a lot of Disney fanart as well. Check out the other Card Captor Sakura Frozen parody version as well. I wanted to do an Elsa solo version because the other version covered up her dress.

I drew this immediately after I saw the Frozen movie, but I decided to post it because it's Christmas appropriate. I know Elsa usually has her hair in her braid when she's wearing this outfit, but I just wanted to draw her up do, and it also showed off her earring better. 

And of course the quote "I am one with the wind and sky" is from "Let it Go" sung by Idina Menzel.

I follow your fiction for many year, maybe since 2007, and I want to say that it's brilliant !
Do you mind if I want to translate them all into my language (Thai)?

Anyway, I like your artwork too. It's remind me to the past when I start to drawing from my favourite manga like CCS and TRC

:D (Big Grin)

I absolutely adore your series, it's my favorite fanfiction ever! You kept it pretty much true to the original storyline, added in new characters, created an intricate storyline, realistic personalities, and have a way with words. Although you might want to have someone look over your chapters again because I've caught quite a few typos.

Hello, wish-chan!~ My name would be CuriousStraydog, although you can call me Stray like a friend of mine does. Or even by my real name, Caroline. :heart: I just wanted to introduce myself because I think you'll be seeing a lot more of me in the future. I definitely plan on reaidng your fanfic and your artwork is adorable and so finely detailed. You're already a creative master in my mind.

And from the descriptions I've read on the artworks I've looked at I already know that I'm going to love all the fanmade cards you've come up with. The Age one made Sakura look adorable in a doll-like sense. :iconbigheartplz: I've only ever come yup with one fanmade card and that would be The Dance. XD Cause I looked at the Fight card and thought it needed a sort of sister, if that makes sense. ^^;

Anyways, I'm rambling because you've said you've liked CCS for a long time and so have I. I've liked it since I was a little girl and loved Sakura ever since then as well. And I'm glad I found someone that I might possibly be able to obsess with in the future. Although I can get annoying with my rambling, randomness, hyperness, so if you don't want to talk to me whenever I comment, that's fine. XD I completely understand.~

Anyways, it's nice to meet you and I should get started soon. I actually have a Fanfiction account so I might start with reading it there. My name is CuteVampireCollie on there so I'll probably start reviewing within a couple days or so. :star:
