ART: Tsumiko Hajime

There’s been a small clamor for story art for Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox, so I’ve been working behind the scenes with FoxOfTwilight to create a series of cast portraits. We’ll start with the main characters, and over the weeks ahead, we’ll add to the collection. Beginning with the title character—Tsumiko Hajime.

ART, Tsumiko by FoxOfTwilight w

A member of the educational community at Saint Midori’s of the Heavenly Lights, where she grew up, Tsumiko has been working on her undergraduate degree while assisting the sisters with the younger students living on campus. I’d describe her as calm, intelligent, and … diminutive. ::twinkle::

Tsumiko Hajime was everything one might expect from a big-city schoolgirl. Even her uniform remained intact—pleated skirt, wide collar, and a drooping cardigan stitched with a school logo. Argent muttered, “Is she twelve?”

Michael made a soft noise of protest. “She may be petite, but she’s a woman of twenty.”

“And still in middle school? She must be backward.”


“Not unless she makes me.”

  1. I wish I could art! Sigh but nifty char portraits!!! (Right now honestly I’ve had Yoko Kurama stand in as Argent and Kagome as Tsumiko since I got no ability to visualize.)

    • I tend to visualize characters more in terms of their personality than a set of specifications. Which has led to some funny, circular conversations with artists (and my needing to dig for scattered story snippets and hairstyle references).

      …and I like the occasional IYxYYH crossover. ::twinkle::

  3. I’m trying to tell what’s on her buttons. Are they flowers?

    This is great! I can’t wait to see what everyone, or a lot of the characters anyway lol, will look like.
