Has it been THAT long??? (again?)

So I'm getting ready to post notice of a new TCC (Tetsuko Cosplay Calendar) for March, when I see that I haven't updated this blog since January 6?! Dang! That means I never posted the February TCCs either! Or any of the other art I've done since then...

I gots some catching up to do!

First, though, for the new stuff: a TCC (in the usual two sizes, 1920 x 1080 (16:9) and 1600 x 1200 (4:3)) for March 2012, featuring Tetsuko and her best bud Sonya both as the popular DC Comics character Catwoman:

Plus, I'd done two different TCCs for February: one featuring a new comics superheroine making her debut this month:

...and one wherein Tetsuko cosplays an actual living person - the WWE wrestling diva Beth Phoenix:

PLus, I'd contributed drawings to the monthly themes for deviantART's Female Muscle club. January's theme was "Hollywood Muscle": draw a muscular version of a favorite actress or movie character. So here's my take on a buffed Marilyn Monroe:

February's Theme: "Middle Earth Muscle". The challenge here: a muscular rendition of a female character from epic fantasy, more specifically J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. Well, since my favorite female character from Tolkien is Eowyn, I decided to capture the moment in Return of the King where the blonde shield-maiden of Rohan beheads the flying steed of the Nazgul (wearing a costume I'm sure neither Tolkien nor Peter Jackson ever envisioned...)

And I'll try not to make you wait this long again for an update!
