Okiku - Reflections by SpectralPony
Okiku - Reflections
What is a reflection? We usually consider the word as meaning one of two things? The throwing back of a body or surface of light, heat, or sound without absorbing it; or we think of it as a serious consideration. We reflect upon something, but like the first one must stop to think if we are truly absorbing it or not? 
When we think, we absorb. We mull a problem over by taking it apart piece by piece in our mind before coming up with the appropriate response or solution. Why then would it be called reflecting? We are not simply spitting the thought right back out before it actually touches us...or are we? 
How many times have we gone through life with a similar point of view? We mean well, we truly do, but what percentage of it all is copy/paste? How many times is it just day after day made up by the same motions, the same schedule as yesterday?
Going even further into reflection, we can also consider what is reflected in us. When someone looks at you, what do they see staring back at them? Is it a reflection of themselves or something wholly different and unique? 
I don't want to be the same mindless stare greeting their own. I don't want to reflect others or a day-to-day of mundane monotony. I strive to be unique. Someone that can smile and maybe in turn put a similar smile on another face. If something is reflected back, I want that to be it. A smile. 
What about you? What is your take on reflections? 

((Late nights tend to become thoughtful as the hours draw on. ^-^;; Plus it has been a long time since I did a more serious Oki piece))

Oki's Cafe
"Welcome, welcome to the Okikoffee Cafe~! The tiny cafe where the coffee is always fresh and the ghosty is always working!"
*nod nod* 
"What  can I get for you today?"

(Just a cute little piece I wanted to put together. ^-^;; Okiku takes her job very seriously.)

Reflections - An Excerpt by SpectralPony
Reflections - An Excerpt
Nature is so peaceful, isn't it? That moment of complete serenity at the transition of day to night. The closing of one chapter and the preparations for another; each different in its own respective elements but yet tied together so seamlessly by life and the full of one complete tale. 
And yet...I wonder where my particular story lies? I was born to live in the sun. All flowers are. We crave the light of day and the nourishment it can provide us. And yet...it would seem that the bulk of my tale encompasses the dark of night. Where then lies the middle ground? Where can both come to a compromise? 
It cannot be that one must make an absolute choice, can it? And if so...then whose chapter must end?

Pumpkaboo - Traditional Chalk Art by SpectralPony
Pumpkaboo - Traditional Chalk Art

Pumpkaboo is a bipedal Pokémon that resembles a pumpkin. It comes in four different sizes: small, average, large, and super sized. The pumpkin body has a pair of circular holes carved out of its rind that resemble eyes. The ghostly body that lives in the pumpkin is black with a pointy collar, yellowish eyes with no visible pupils, a pair of fangs, curved ears and a curled stem. Pumpkaboo can release light from the holes on its body, making it similar to a flashlight.

The spirit residing in the pumpkin is trapped in this world. Pumpkaboo can carry wandering spirits to where they belong, so they can move on.

(Part of a new ongoing series of Pokemon related chalk pastel pieces. ^-^ I thought it appropriate to begin work on these, especially with the 20th anniversary of the Pokemon franchise coming up in 2016. Please look soon for fine art prints of these to appear here: www.expressionsoferi.com/)

Hey everyone. Very sorry for the overall lack of updates and work. I've been asked to be a vendor in an upcoming art show, so I have been trying very hard to get a number of traditional pieces ready in time. 
I've also been in and out of the hospital quite a few times these past few months due to a continuation of heart problems. The doctors currently have me adjusting to a new schedule of medications, but it has left me very drained over all. That, with the stress of the coming show, and attempting to finish my coursework on time...it is a lot for me to handle right now. 
I am still working hard to get comics up weekly, and I have plans for a lot of new art work soon. Thank you all very very much for your understanding in this and your patience with me in this time.
*big hugs to all*

Hello!
My name is Oki. ^-^;
I'm not very good at much of these 'biographies' so please bear with me.
While I specialize in the digital arts, I also am an avid writer, baker, and patron of the traditional styles of artistry. I cosplay quite frequently and currently am hard at work on a webcomic while finishing up my schooling.

I've noticed that I automatically refer to you as Miss Okiku, not sure why, but I though that might interest you :)
