A lot of the time, sketches seems to turn out better than
my completed works. The poses are just right, or the imagery
is really strong, and I can't quite recapture it when I draw
the "real thing." Some of these fit that bill.
None of the images are more then mildly

- My original character, Tanya Brown. Actually, that's the
name of the costume; I never gave the girl a name.
You didn't think she was really a cat-girl, did you?

- And here's a peek at the girl under the uniform. Or at least
the part of the face that's visible through the bodysuit.
As you can see, she's not too happy about this
part of the job, but it was this starving actress could
get work at the already well-staffed restaurant.

moves and acts in character just like the actress, but
she denies it's her. When an infatuated guy tried to

- The cast, in order, Ruby, Amethyst, Sapphire, and Opal.
Not shown are the unnamed boy, Prince Jade, and Princess
Diamond. Opal is a quiet woman who has healing powers.

- This prince is searching for his Princess. He was granted
a wish that they would be together in this life, and now he
searches her out, with the help of the boy. The two worked
alone for some time before encountering the others. He wears
a ceremonial sword, but fights with a quarterstaff grown with
his plant-based powers.

clutzy girl, who tries to make friends with everyone.
When she transforms, she's an enthusiastic but clutzy
girl with elemental powers. She's the most powerful
of the warriors, but the one with the least control.

- In her civilian identity, she's a social girl, interested
in gossip and pets, but utterly shy of boys. When she
transforms, she has empathic powers over animals, and can
draw upon their abilities. As her powers progress, she
realises she has empathic powers over men, too. "And then
I realized that they're animals, too!"

- This magical girl isn't discovered until the second season.
Her powers involve chaos and darkness, and she is something of

- And here's the princess, herself, who doesn't appear until
the end of the first season. Her power is to grant the
wishes of others. (Before she was summoned, the boy tried
to fill her role, albeit without the supernatural powers.)
She has also granted each of her followers one wish. It was
these wishes which led to their rebirth, and her disappearance.
