Hi Kikira here! 

I'm starting a new collaborative project with my friend lady-miku called "Cirque de Mystere."

A fun story about a Wannabe Magician that stumbles his way into a Circus filled with magic and mystery. 

She will be writing the story and I will be illustrating/designing the characters and some select scenes. 

Here is her short synopsis - A young boy who dreams of becoming a magician, a snake charmer searching for love, a ringmaster of the day, and a ringmaster of the night. There's more to this circus than meets the eye, and its up to a young apprentice to discover just what happens to this Circus when the sun goes down. 

The first few chapters have been uploaded onto her site so please stop by and feed the creatures:

  Cirque de Mystere 1
Nanterre, France 1887:
    The town was nearly empty, and many of the street lamps had been blown out by the harsh March wind. A rattling of carriage wheels echoed across the town square, through the vacant alleys and across sleeping rooftops. These carriages, large and dark, were pulled by bulky horses at a slow pace. The damp air fell heavily over the hooded figure who, with his whip, led the hushed procession through the sleepy town.
    Another cloaked figure, one belonging to a small woman, rushed from one of the carriages to a nearby wall. With a flick of the wrist, a colorful advertisement was posted upon the once barren bricks. With a twirl of her cape, she quickly returned to the side of the carriage, quite eager to continue their trek.
    Through the hushed town, only a short walk out of the gates, lay a large and empty pasture. The grass was thick and tall, untouched for many years. It had once belonged to a farmer, but had been purchased from


I will be uploading the first characters in the next few days when I get all the main cast together! So keep an eye out!

Cheers! 
Kikira OUT :heart:
Hi! Kikira here! 
I know it's been a while since I've been active on Deviantart. I'm posting an update first to let people know I'm still around and kicking haha, but also because of a slight change in my gallery. I'm thinking of posting art here again, so I have moved my older pieces into another folder - titled 'Old Work', this is just to un-clutter the main page and give myself a fresh start. They are still available for viewing so don't worry! I'm not sure what I'll be posting as of yet since many of my pieces are works in progress at the moment, but there will be new art on the way! 

I want to say thanks to the people that still come by and look at my artwork even though there hasn't been much activity here as of late - and an even bigger thank-you to the watchers that still follow me! 

I hope everyone will enjoy the new artwork and the improvement the last few years has made! 

Kikira OUT!!
I've decided to leave my work up here since it would be unfair to take them all down, and from time to time upload gifts and or trades just because I have friends here I can only contact through DA. 

My website is slow going atm, due to being busy with my job but its getting there XD.

I may also be uploading some new work in the near future, depends on when I give them to people, they're kinda a surprise :3

Anyway just decided to give a heads up and to let people know I'm not dead.

Kikira
Hey there peeps! 
Just wanting to let my watchers out there know that I moving off of this website. I'll still be checking in for notes and other things like that, but as far as putting new work up thats probably not going to happen. I've been thinking of doing this for a while now, and well recent events have kinda made me a little hesitant to put my work up here, due to the increasing amount of art theft (not to me personally but to my friends) so seeing as I am going to be making profit of my work at some point, I would rather not get involved with any of that messy business. So that kinda seals the deal. 

Once I get my website up and running, I'll attach a link to one of my journals so that you can still check out my art. So its not goodbye forever :D 


Hey there! 

So I don't usually do promos, but I really think my friend lady-miku deserves some attention from you wonderful people.
She's a great writer and fantastic person, so if you like a good fantasy story please visit her, read, comment and or watch. :) 


Some of her works: 
<da:thumb id="394268142"/>
Hey! So I'm like a month into my summer vacation and well I still have a ton of requests and other misc art stuff I'm working on that... haven't been finished yet. I haven't had time to work on any of them due to my job, but not to worry! They should be done at some point in time. 
Thanks to everyone being patient with me while I get all this stuff sorted!

Kikira :heart:

Hey there DA!
Thanksgiving break is here and I'm finally on vacation. Well three days in, but having too much fun to write anything. To my requesters yes I am working on your stuff. They will be done hopefully before the end of the week but who knows.

150 deviations so that means I have an announcement. I've been on DA for a while and have decided to change my fursona. I know this kinda has nothing to do with a lot of you, but just a little heads up.

Thanks to all my watchers and have a happy THANKSGIVING!

Kikira OUT! :meow:
...sorry it's taking this long for all of your requests. I know you asked for them somewhere in... August, and I'm working on them a little bit at a time between breaks in school work. So just a heads up, and again I am really sorry... ^^;

REQUESTS:

1. :iconladylirriea: OC Seran [COMPLETE]

2. :iconmike16r: OC Kerrigan

3. :iconfleetinggoodbyes: OC Akiye and Taiyou
Yay! After many days of drawing I finally finished all my requests. I really had a lot of fun with them and they gave me the opportunity and pleasure of drawing things that I normally wouldn't have the chance to draw. There were a lot of challenges with them, like my computer giving out on me over the course of a few drawings... it's fixed now, and many other things; but after all that work I must say that I am quite pleased with them and would very much like to open requests again when I have the time to do them.

Now before you all jump on me about the few of you that still have requests pending. Hold on. I don't want to get buried in comments. Not that I will QAQ

I will be opening up one final request slot. But there will be only 3 slots this time. Again it is first come first serve and anyone left over will go onto the waiting list which is about 3 months time. (Please also note me the information after I have confirmed your request, I dont want to have to sift through comments when looking for specific information. It also makes it easier for me to ask questions in case I have any.)

School is starting for me soon and I need time to pack and other things, so if you do not want to end up on the 3 month waiting list (I won't have time to work on them during school, and I also want to do personal drawings during that time) you can always just say so, it won't hurt my feelings or anything. ^_^

Kikira out! :star:

Reminder: Requests will take about 3 days each; depending on the complexity. I will note you if there are any complications that will make the time span longer.

REQUESTS:

1. :iconladylirriea: OC Seran

2. :iconmike16r: OC Kerrigan

3. :iconfleetinggoodbyes: OC Akiye and Taiyou
I'm offering 5 slots to be opened at the moment for requests so if anyone is interested its first come first serve. :)
Each picture will take about 3 days each.


1. [CLOSED]

2. [CLOSED]

3. [CLOSED]

4. [CLOSED]

5. [CLOSED]

If you want a request comment and then note me the details.

:star-empty: :star-half: :star:
So I've been working on my line-art style lately and need some tips on how to make it smooth and have the lines thinner. I know its a weird thing to ask about how to make the lines thinner, but every time I draw the lines end up being really thick and dark... O^O

So if any of you have tips out there, or brush sizes to try out please comment! It would be really appreciated!

Thanks!

~Kikira
Yup I'm out of school for the year so you know what that means? Lots of time to do absolutely nothing... *shot* No but actually, I'm going to be working on all those things that I said I would and finally finish them, and yes Lady-Miku that means all the requests I told you I would do... Anime...I didn't forget your birthday... be patient... even if it is a month overdue.... and for the rest of the people whom want to make an art trade, request or commission! I have the time. :)

Oh and that animation that I started in 2011... finally gonna finish that. So look forward to that... and if not. :iconcryforeverplz:

So that's all for now! Kikira out!

:heart:
Happy mother's day to all you mothers out there being lovely and wonderful, and a BIG shout out to my mummy! I LOVE YOU!!!! HAPPY MOTHER"S DAY!!!

XOXOXOXO Kikira!
:iconeatingbrid: needs more watchers, and no I'm not advertizing cuz I want something out of it or that she's and attention hog, but because she has a very small social life and I want her to meet people and feel a little more welcome. She has only me and two others as friend right now... all of which she knows IRL so... yeah. If anything just say 'hi'. She's really sweet and funny and amazing at art. Yup that's all for now.

Kikira :heart:
So my friend :iconeatingbrid: (who is an amazing artist) is giving away 4 digital art requests for anyone that wants to participate. It is first come first serve. She is amazing at realism and can do many different styles. (she just started on deviant art, so don't be alarmed with the small amount of work.)

Anyway yup that's happening so go! Go! GO!
