Eccola! So this took forever but...
Birthday, Miss Tatti!
For those of you who don't know her prepare for a brief fangirl rant.
I love her work, she is such a talented artist it's truly inspiring to me. Her style is very unique and all her pieces are top-notch. She also cosplays with her friend and photos of their cosplays can be found here
. Anyway, I have only interacted with her a few times
and it made my whole day
but she's very sweet and I would be willing to put all of my money on the fact that after her mother, I am her biggest fan. So naturally I just had to draw her something.
This piece was inspired by two of her cosplays, one of Barry (or as I refer to him as, Pearl) from Pokemon and of the BLU Sniper from Team Fortress 2.
I know she did Barry but I've only ever drawn Pearl (his manga counterpart) so most notably the hair is not the same as Barry's, and I slicked it out of his face to look more like the Sniper's. I also altered the Sniper's insignia to resemble a pokeball (ooh, getting creative I know) but left him in his own clothes with Snipe's accessories.
As for the cockatiel, Tatti has (I think?) two of them but ironically cockatiels are from Australia, the same place of origin as the Sniper so it is not such a random addition in the end.
Anyway, I do hope she likes it and I send my love and warm wishes to her
Tantisimi auguri, tesoro!
