That’s right, the octopus girl I mentioned a few months earlier has RETURNED! (See I Know You’re Sick of my Weird Mermaid-Like Things By Now, But…)
Oh, and did I mention, she has a name?
So anyway, I’m assuming you guys really want an explanation as to why the heck Neon Cheetah has been replaced as the header image.
As time went on since I first adopted the name and character, I started to realize that Neon Cheetah didn’t really…fit. I’m rather salty, introverted, and a bit reserved, and somehow, an anthropomorphized cheetah with rainbow spots and dyed hair didn’t quite match up. And I had started having more and more fun drawing Pearl in her various forms, that I thought that she might be better for me anyway.
So Neon Cheetah isn’t dead or anything, don’t worry. I just feel that I needed a bit of a change.
Also, the rainbow, leopard print background on here kinda hurt my eyes after a while. Yeesh. You couldn’t even see the home button.
So now, here are a few Pearl portraits I’ve done since her last blog appearance.
Currently on my bulletin board. This is pretty much where she first had clearly visible gills.
The lyrics here are from Car Seat Headrest’s “America (Never Been)”. Beautiful song, if you haven’t heard it already.
I might’ve been a little heavy-handed on the tilt shift on this one, but heck, I’m still proud of it.
I also ended up making a Christmas ornament of Pearl, as well as a bookmark with her on it, along with the Betty Smith quote, “The world was hers for the reading.” She’s also involved in another project I’m working on currently. That’s all I’ll disclose for the time being.
Until next time, everyone!
