    passerineart:

    I’ve been presented with the most adoring designs and intricate personalities, I’ve been introduced to a plethora of gorgeous styles and artistic abilities I am envious of. I’ve seen my characters the way you see them, presented in your lines by your sides as you’ve taken up your weapons to fight against Sins as Magical Girls from the Sassy Sister Universe.

    Thank you and thank you all for making this possible, for letting me see all your ideas and designs. Thank you so much for the tremendous support you’ve given me, for the praise and flattery and for pushing my story along as you all inspire me to keep working. Without your support, I doubt I’d be able to make it this far with my universe. Without your support, I doubt there would be any Sassy Sisters the way they are today.

    So thank you all, I love all the contributions and alll the entries you’ve shown me, and my magical girls are probably just boiling over with their egos by now! It’s been a great ride and I’ve enjoyed myself so much, and I hope you have, too!

    With more than 50 entries, I had to come to a conclusion and find my winners. It was hard. Really hard. So we added one extra winner and one extra honorable! With help from my judging panel we finally settled on four winning entries of the Design Yourself As A Magical Girl contest, as well as 6 honorable mentions, who will all be rewarded!

    So, here we are at last;

    Sushicore!

    ♡ Fighting sins by moonlight! Avoiding people by daylight! ♡

    Your piece just blew us all away and was immediately running for first place; the amount of detail is astonishing and the style, composition and use of clours is just spot on. I love the dynamic between you and Chrisphie and you both look amazing. This entry truly had everything I was looking for, a kick-ass personality and bio, a beautiful and eye-catching design, and a composition that made us all impressed. 

    I personally adore the way you used your own style, yet it all seemed to fit right in there in the Sassy Sisters universe, something which blew me away. The style itself of the image reminds me of a stained-glass painting. Thats my weak spot. ; - ; So thank you, thank you so much for sharing this lovely piece of work with the world and most of all: CONGRATULATIONS! ; 7 ; <3

    Your prize is: one full-body, flat-shaded drawing of yourself/an OC of yours + 5 days of promotion on Petitepasserine!


    2nd Place goes to:

    kasiabanas:    Entry for Passerine’s contest.KindleWeapon: Needle and thread/Cuts, stabs, stitches  and ties.//    damn oh my gosh you&#8217;ve got such STYLE&#160;; ___&#160;; holy goodness this is so unique and beautiful and I just, I&#8217;m all over your art style wow! I love kindles design too ahh SO GOOD 💕  thank you so much for joining and good luck!

    This might be a bit cheesy but when I first saw your entry, I had to double check if you were truly joining my competition because your technique and style is the technique and style of people I aspire to be. It’s just so professional, theres a red thread through the entire piece and it had me staring for quite a while as I took in the fact that such a talented artist was joining; and drawing my characters. I blushed quite a lot.

    There is not a single thing I dislike about your entry. It’s different in the most delectable way and seeing you interpret my universe was an honor. Your piece embodies the more dramatic sides of the Sassy sisters, and I love it.So thank you ever so much and CONGRATULATIONS! ; 7 ; <3

    Your prize is: one waist-up flat shaded drawing of yourself/an OC of yours + 3 days of promotions on PetitePasserine!

    3rd Place goes to: 

    Hacuubii!

    hacuubii:    My entry for Passerine’s contest v//////v ANIMU CLEMENTINE  At first I thought I’d use Liling for this one… I thought Clementine is so cute and popular so everyone would probably draw her. I really wanted to stand out haha. but then I couldn’t get Clementine off my mind&#160;; o&#160;; I think she’s too important to me. She helps me accept my body every time I see her on my dash! instead of thinking “I’m not THAT chubby…” I think “Yeah! I’m chubby! and I’m also cute and magical like any other girl can be.” so thank you Clementine! Thank you Muri! ♥  My magical name would be “Daisy Daydream”? I think haha this is embarrassing. My sin is probably cheating on boyfriends constantly. I wanted my outfit to be more “Pajamas” than “Lingerie” since I don’t really enjoy being sexy as much as I enjoy looking innocent and cute.   I guess I could be Clem’s friend? I really hope so&#160;; o&#160;; so nervous she’s too perfect    Daisy Daydream oh my gooosh I can&#8217;t get over how original and creative all of you are with coming up with magical girl names&#160;; __&#160;; SO CUTE and oh gods THIS IS GORGEOUS&#160;; A&#160;; I&#8217;m so glad Clementine makes you feel that way ahh! you make a positively adorable magical girl and I think no matter your size or body everybody are able to make beautiful and super cute magical girls oh boy&#160;; __&#160;; &lt;3 thank you so much for joining my contest and good luck! I love the design and clementine oh BOYYYY this is so cuuute

    Your entry was the sweetest of the confectionery; it had both me and my judges melting with joy. Your piece represents the magical girl genres shoujo-feeling and the happy-go-lucky sides of the Sassy Sisters; and the character you picked couldn’t have been more appropriate! I just adore this piece, the composition is simple but sweet (literally), and you two look so adorable together!

    I also remember your weapon was one of the weapons I really liked, as well as the entire design of your magical girl self! So thank you so much and CONGRATULATIONS! ; 7 ; 

    Your prize is: one waist-up skech of yourself/an OC of yours + 2 days of promotions on PetitePasserine!

    This was one of the entries that legitimately had me gasp out loud in real life. This is exactly what I was looking for design-wise, and I just love how you’ve gone gothic as opposed to all cutesy and light, as pretty much all my own designs are; this almost makes me want to go gothic again, and thats a huge feat. ; - ; 

    The eye for detail you have is just amazing, and the golden details of your design is what won all the judges over immediately. We just could not include you and your amazing piece of work! So thank you so much for joining and CONGRATULATIONS! ; 7 ; 

    Your prize is: one waist-up skech of yourself/an OC of yours + 1 days of promotion on PetitePasserine!

    Honorable mentions: 

    There were so many amazing entries so restricting myself to 5 honorable mentions was very difficult… so we extended it to 6! In the end, I felt that these entries really portrayed what I was looking for, so congratulations to all five of you! You will each get a promotion of your blog (your chosen blog, either your art or main blog) for one day! <3

    kiyori-n: This piece is so lovely, I just love both of your expressions because it looks like you’re talking gossip about some nasty Sin on the horizon… so cute. I love it, congratulations! ; 7 ; 

    yurifairy: This piece actually made me open SAI to practice composition because, well, damn that composition is GOOD. I was just amazed with this entire piece, it’s so amazing. Congratulations! ; 7 ; 

    agent-lapin: This is a classic example of eye-candy deluxe, the colours are so warm and sweet I could just drown in it, and you two look so amazing together that I wish I were you??? I love it. Wow. Congratulations! ; 7 ; 

    So with that, thank you all so, so much for your participation, it’s been such a fun ride and I hope you’ve enjoyed yourself! Congratulations to all of my amazing winners and honorable mentions, you all did great and I’m so proud of all the people who joined my competition!

    People are losing their fire and forgetting about Ferguson. That’s exactly what the police want, though: for all of this to just go away and for people to forget about it.

    Don’t let that happen.

  • sunvapor asked : What the fucks happening in Ferguson?

    clehmentine:

    Alright, i’m gonna sit down and basically explain the situation in this ask so everyone of my followers knows why i’m so pissed.

    Michael Brown, a 17 - 18 year old african american boy was unlawfully shot (8-10 times supposedly) by police in St Louis, Missouri on saturday, august 9th, 2014. He was unarmed, and had done nothing to attract suspicion other than the fact that he was black. His body was left in the street for 4 hours. (beware: somewhat graphic image linked)

    There are several claims from witnesses (see: Dorian Johnson’s account and video [HIGHLY RECOMMEND READING UP ON HIS ACCOUNT, ITS VERY SPECIFIC] — Brown’s friend who experienced the situation first hand, La’Toya Cash and Phillip Walker— Ferguson residents nearby the incident),  that fall together in generally close claims. However, the only one who’s claim seems out of place is the police officer’s who shot Brown. Who, by the way, is put off on paid administrative leave AND who’s name remained under anonymity for his safety (However, attorney Benjamin Crump is looking for a way to force release his name). He claims that Brown began to wrestle the officer for his gun and tried attacking him after he told Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson (22) to “get the f*ck on the sidewalk”.

    According to Johnson, after a minor confrontation on the officer’s part where he grabbed Brown by the neck and then by the shirt, the officer pulled his gun on Brown and shot him at point blank range on the right side of his body. Brown and Johnson were able to get away briefly and started running. However, Brown was shot in the back, supposedly disabling him from getting very far. He turned around with his arms in the air and said “I don’t have a gun, stop shooting!” By this point, Brown and the officer were face to face as the cop shot him several times in the face and chest until he was finally dead. Johnson ran to his apartment and by the sound of his account, seemingly had some sort of panic attack. Later he emerged from his home to see Brown still laying in the streets. People were gathered with their cellphones, screaming at the police.

    According to msnbc, the police refuse to interview Johnson at all, despite his amazing courage to come forward. They didn’t wanna hear it. They only listened to the cop’s account of it all and were vague with the media on what they thought happened. They’ve also refused to commit to a timeline in releasing autopsy results and other investigation information.

    Numerous rumors are sweeping around such as Brown stealing candy from a QuickTrip, the store he emerged from calling the cops on him, Brown reaching for a gun, Brown attacking the cop first, ect. But these have all been debunked. (I know a lot of these have been debunked, but im having a hard time finding sources. if anyone could help out and link some legit ones id be SO grateful)

    The event in and of itself was terrible, but now it has escalated beyond belief. Around 100 or more people, mostly black, went to the police station to protest peacefully. Things quickly turned bad as martial law got involved and authorities were bringing in K9s, tanks, heavy artillery, ect. The heavy police presence only made things worse as riots began to break out and looting and vandalism started. [ x ] [ x ] [ x ]

    Now, as of very recently, the media has been banned from Ferguson. There is also a No-Fly zone above Ferguson for the reason of “ TO PROVIDE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTIVITIES ” as said on the Federal Aviation Commission’s website. Cop cars are lined up on the borders to prevent people from entering/leaving. Media outlets are being threatened with arrest. It completely violates our amendments and everything.

    It’s becoming increasingly scary and difficult to find out whats going on over there. I’m afraid this is all the information I have, though. If anybody else knows anything about the situation, please feel free to add on or correct any mistakes i’ve made as i’m no expert on writing these things.

    And as a personal favor, i’d really appreciate anyone to give this a reblog in order to spread the word. I think it’s a shame that this is going on in our own country yet so few people know about it. Help me make this topic huge and get this as much attention as possible.
