Art Summary 2017

So… we’re in the final post of the year. First year I told myself I was going to be constant with my posting on social media, and I re-started my own site and brand as Calico Chimera. It’s been a bumpy ride, to be honest, but I am happy with the results, especially as well, it’s the first time I am able to fill one of these Art Summaries with one image per month (and choosing some months was HARD), and I’m really happy with the results.

(BTW, the blank template is from DustBunnyThumper at Deviantart. Credit where Credit is due)

I did notice that I forgot to post some of the images here. Sure, I decided that Deviant Art would be mostly for fanart, and everywhere else for everything, but I never posted the Horsemen and Squires in Art Noveau borders here! That was a big overlook! (So I guess I will post them in 2018, just for competition sake). Also, I have to balance more my finished color original pieces and the fanart since this year it looks as I did more fanart (But of course, that doesn’t count comic pages, or sketches)

Most of this comes, of course, thanks to the amazing support I’ve had this year. And since this is the last post of the year, I can’t let it go without thanking Mandi Gordon, Writer’s Block writer and Dream Keeper Robin’s editor. Half of the illustrations here wouldn’t exist if she hadn’t supported me, pushed me to my limits, and kept pushing me from under my drawing table.

In any case, thank you for reading this, thank you for being with me and supporting me through 2017. Here’s to 2018 where I hope we all have a much better year!

Wonder Kidanakash Nedakh


I adore Atlantis: The Lost Empire. I think that it’s one of the most underrated movies of the Disney animated canon, and that Kida should be in the Princess’ line up because she is THAT Badass. I adore every single character, from Milo to Gaetan, and I think it’s a crime that more people don’t love the movie.

That said, I also adore Nubia, Wonder Woman’s black sister. Even if her origin in the silver age is a bit cringy, and she was pretty much ignored post crisis (She appeared, people forgot her and man, she should’ve been the new Wonder Woman instead of Artemis) and now she’s pretty much relegated to an alternate earth that well, it’s a bit problematic, I still love that she finally has an official Wonder Woman outfit. And because she, like Kida, is very overlooked, well, the combination was obvious.

(I am a bit mad that the scanner lightened Kida’s skin so much, as I tried to make her the same tone as she is in the actual movie)
