Paving My Own Path~An Artist's Journey by NekohimeKagepuma
Paving My Own Path~An Artist's Journey
My journey has been a long and dark one, transcending the barriers  between worlds. Through worlds of dream and worlds of spirit, I have traveled to find my inner-artist. For a while after seeing this competition, I was absolutely stumped. It was not until recently that I reached my artist's epiphany. Drawing from my experience and spiritual understanding as a witch, as well as the dark inner-workings of a teenage mind, I quite literally regurgitated this piece, reflecting, in essence, my heart. I have journeyed through the self-inflicted cage of darkness, forcing myself to battle my inner-demons. I drew strength from my weakness by making it tangible, thus controlling it. I have trekked through the jungles of life, which seem to ingurgitate all in reach.  I found hope even when lost by connecting with the guardian always guiding me through even the most perilous of places. I have sojourned through the world of spirits, where the possibilities seem too endless to comprehend. I came to enlightenment when I stopped searching and listened to what the worlds had to say. Just like life, the cycle will repeat and eventually I will reach another dark point in my life.

I have many symbolic images hidden in this picture. The goddess Hecate is featured, creating another path that leads into the main one. She is the goddess of the crossroads and I depict her creating such a crossroad because our journey is not always one path. We all reach crossroads in our lives and sometimes we have to make difficult decisions. Though it is often difficult, there is nothing wrong with choosing at a crossroad. Making decisions just reaffirms that we have free will. Only we can create our own journey and only we can travel it.

Itami Wallpaperish Thing by NekohimeKagepuma
Itami Wallpaperish Thing
I really don't know why I made this. I guess I felt like doing something different from my normal style. I haven't done any drawings of my OC Itami in a while so I guess I just had an intense urge to draw her.

Come back when you grow a pair! by NekohimeKagepuma
Come back when you grow a pair!
I haven't done fanart in forever! The World Ends With You is one of my favorite games of all time. I've been really obsessing over it recently so I decided to give drawing something a try. This is Beat (Daisukenojo Bito) battling a Grudge Wolf and a Choirfrog, two taboo Noise. Those things are best fought when holding the light puck so I gave it to him. That quote is one of my favorites that he says during battles!

Here's a closeup of the Grudge Wolf and the Choirfrog

Bullying in middle schools have gotten out of hand. I understand that it's impossible to live in a world without conflict. I also know that for healthy growing, kids need to experience some harshness. HOWEVER, things have gotten to a point that they are dangerous. Kids in today's society are spoiled and not brought up properly. I saw middle schoolers with Iphones and things like that, while I still have the brick phone I received in 9th grade. These kids are cursing openly and saying profane things while adults are present. There are many who are going beyond bullying and harassment and are trying to get others to kill themselves. It sickens me that in six years, middle school has degraded that much. I understand there are "anti-bully" programs they have at the schools, but they are laughable, even when I was in middle school. And it's clear that it is not all the children's fault. Parents are to blame as well. So are teachers, some of which shouldn't be allowed to teach frankly. I want to try to spread the word to stop bullying because it's getting dangerous. I will be trying to arrange to public speak at the middle schools, because hearing an adult say "it's not nice to bully" is very ineffective.

Konichiwa! My name is Amber, but some people call me Nekohime (written in Katakana!). I have been drawing since I was very little, mainly self taught. Eventually I discovered the world of manga and anime, and shortly became an otaku. I have my own stories and OC's. I constantly strive to better my skill and hope to become a manga artist. I loooooove cats and mythical creatures! I tend to be depressed though so most of my works have a dark feel to them. I think that's part of their charm though :)
