Pst! I have a secret to tell you.
I’ve always wanted a cute chibi of Cymre. I remember seeing the ones on Wowhead’s various guides and thought they were the cutest things. Especially the ones they had for Love is in the Air, Lunar Festival and Children’s Week. They all made me think of my hunter Tallys who was a female Tauren with ‘green eyes’. In fact, that was her nickname for a while on my old server. I was also told by an old guildie that she had the most seductive tail in the game.
Since then, my hunter no longer sports the fur but the muscular physique of an orc. However, I can’t help but think of how she used to look when I see these chibis.
Last week, I was so impressed with Navimie’s Chibi commission by the wonderful and talented Sleepingfox that I sent her an email to say what a great job she did and to find out more. It didn’t take long before I decided to go ahead with a commission of my own.
In fact, it only took about a day to complete the arrangement so I could begin my one week wait (in anticipation). I admit, I originally asked another artist to design an avatar for me but after waiting several weeks while my name reached the top, my hopes of an awesome avatar plummeted when she told me she didn’t think she’d be able to design it according to my specifications. I might have overdone it with the details but that was only because of what I had seen her accomplish with other ones I’d seen on Twitter and through Gravatar.
The week my special comic was due to be published, I was doubly excited as I believed it was going to be the week I also received my brand spanking new avatar. I was ecstatic when she said my first email detailing the costume and hair would be doable. But I think the other details might have thrown her off which is why I received that disappointing DM sometime later. Ironically, I would have been ecstatic for just the costume, it just wasn’t meant to be.
So when I saw this commission from Sleepingfox, I knew I had found the person to create my awesome scrumdiliumcious chibi of my beloved main.
So what did I ask for?
As you may know, I love Tyrande’s outfit so I asked if she could use the one she has on the loading screen, including the boots she wears in-game. I also requested a whip and bubble wand since she’s into Discipline, as Coolidge will tell you…
Lastly, I’ve been wanting to create a star-gazer costume for the longest time as I love astronomy so I asked her to substitute the leaves in her hair for stars. Just look at the way she pulls her hair back :)
You know I think Cymre might have found her new ‘Cymre Jones’ outfit :P
I just LOVE how she turned out!
Thx again Sleepingfox for doing such an exceptional job with all the elements I gave you :D
