Hi! I'm Miss Momo♥17 years old♥Future midewife ( I'll be heading off to university next fall ) ♥ this is my art blog/ my fashion blog where i post lolita things, I'm really interested in cute things, mermaids, and I'm learning Japanese! (self teaching as of late)
So today is my 19th birthday and my parents have been super secretive about my cake for like a week. Turns out they searched through months worth of NightValeRadio tweets to find a birthday related one for my cake. And the people at the cake place had absolutely no idea what it was referring to and still have no clue what the design was all about.
A punk mermaid speed-draw warm up, which I didn’t finish because I exceeded my allotted warmup doodle time. I saw a bunch of people on twitter retweeting punk mermaids and I was like… yes that’s a thing I give all the shits about, yes, please.
I figure she’s a manatee-esque mermaid, and therefor wearing corpses of dead sea critters like ispods and sea turtles is probably super taboo to manatee-like mermaids. And while fishing lures look silly to us, they’re symbols of DEATH to sea critters, and what’s more punk rock than that.
Maybe I’ll come back and shade this proper, but it was fun. This is the first color drawing I’ve attempted in Manga Studio 5 so far.
COMING OF AGE FILMS FEATURING BLACK GIRLS: YELLING TO THE SKY(2011, directed by Victoria Mahoney)
Yelling to the Sky was the 3rd coming of age film i had ever seen about a black girl, going through struggles that a lot of black girls are going through right now but are hardly talked about or showcased in mainstream media, and it poured a fuel over the intense passion i have for coming of age films about black girls and made that passion even bigger. Zoe Krazitz plays Sweetness O’hara, a 17y/o girl in high school suffering through bullying from her peers, a broken family, and having to deal with the fact that her life might be at a dead end if she doesn’t find a way out immediately. Also features other amazing black actresses like Gabourey Sidibe and Antonique Smith, making it perhaps one of the top ten best films i’ve ever watched.
^ agreed! I actually enjoyed this movie more than I thought I would! It was actually really really good!
