This was something I whipped up for the r/touhou community. I took Yukari Yakumo and created “nose art” in line of the Stars in Shadow universe. Didn’t make it too “pinup-y” if that made sense. Mainly just wanted to make her the girl of attention toting a giant cannon.

I almost missed this one, but was browsing Twitter one night when I saw that Moon Studios were having a giveaway, in which they’d hand out some Ori-themed merchandise based on who submitted artwork. They’d pick some they like, then give those winners a prize. I never tried entering my art in contests like this (I always thought I was subpar and kind of still do), but I just decided to try something and get a piece out there.
This was the final result. I wasn’t too happy on the background but the overall piece was all right. I definitely liked the concept! So I entered it into the competition. We’ll see how it goes.
EDIT: Wow. I actually got selected and won a prize! This is just mind-blowing and completely floored me. I never expected to actually win something out of this. Thank you so much, Moon Studios. You guys are awesome!
This is the video process for the Cuphead x Overwatch piece if anybody’s interested. This is actually the first time I’m doing a video of my art process, so please enjoy and let me know if you’d like to see more of this kind of stuff!
This took a little bit of brainstorming, but partially grabbed people’s attention. But do enjoy this Overwatch x Cuphead crossover.

This had been sitting around for quite awhile. About two months before I got Overwatch in 2016, I asked Christina to take Widowmaker, put her in a shopping cart and come up with something. This was the end result.
Apparently it was such a good result, that Sombra’s VA and even Allanah retweeted it. Lots of people loved the idea of Widowmaker in a shopping cart for some reason, I guess.

This was something that was a long time coming. According to my Things app, I’ve had the idea of “putting Sheena from Tales of Symphonia on a bike” since the beginning of 2010. Glad to finally have it see the light of day.
I had real fun with this one in particular, especially with the background and setting up this nighttime “urban” ambience. City was a little tricky but I finally tweaked it to give it that night glow I wanted.

This was waiting to happen after Paola finished the last piece. Surprisingly while this amazed a lot of the RWBY fan community, a lot of them were on the fence with this one. Oops?

After playing Ori and the Blind Forest for awhile, realized how Lindsey Stirling’s music style was quite similar in certain styles of the game. This idea brewed of Lindsey Stirling doing her thing with Ori looking in awe. DashingIce was happy to oblige.
While this did get posted to my Twitter with both parties tagged, this never did get any recognition from them unfortunately. Still, it’s here and there for posterity.
Idea mine. Artist dashingice.
This is the last piece of the Disney/Touhou crossover series currently. I may do more in the future, but for now the project closes out with this last and seventh piece.
For the longest while I knew I wanted to put someone in Reimu’s outfit but it took well over two years till I finally came to this combination. Special thanks to Animazement buddy AnnaC93 for suggesting this to happen.
