Heathers Fanart- Magical Girl Veronica

Hello everyone! Emma here. I’ve been listening to Heathers The Musical a little too much lately, and while browsing Pinterest I came across Cafhune’s Magical Girl AU. For those of you who don’t know, AU stands for Alternate Universe. It’s like taking the story and changing something about it. For example, if you take Hamilton (or any other historical story) and modernize it. Modern AUs are very common. In this Magical Girl AU, the Heathers and Veronica were classic anime magical girls, like in Sailor Moon. I don’t watch much anime, but a bunch of my friends do, plus the concept is pretty familiar to me. Either way, I was hooked. I loved the designs Cafune had for the Heathers and Veronica, not to mention how incredible the art was. I decided to sit down and draw Veronica in the AU. Sorry for the kinda-bad-quality picture. I changed her design a little bit (that skirt was too floofy for me), but I still really like how this turned out. You can check out the AU for yourself here. Again, credit to Cafhune for their wonderful AU and designs.

If any artists are curious, I used alcohol markers, liners, and colored pencils for this drawing. The exact colors are Ohuhu brush PB6 and BR1, Ohuhu bullet/chisel 63, Touchnew skin tone 107, and Copic B41 (one of my few Copic markers). I also used a Sakura Decorese white gel pen, liners that I cannot read the name of on the packaging, and just regular Crayola colored pencils. I don’t know if anyone cares, but when I see art I like, I usually want to know what materials were used.

Thank you so much for checking out my blog! I hope you liked the drawing, I had a ton of fun making it! If you have any feedback (both constructive and positive), questions, or just something to tell me, leave me a comment, and a link to your blog! I would love to visit you!

Inspiring Quotes to Get You Through Quarantine

Hey everyone! Emma here. I know we’re all still suck in quarantine, and for Communications class, we were given a choice board of assignments to choose from for this week. I decided to make a quote collage, with seven inspiring quotes to help you get through quarantine. Thanks to this article and a little misadventure my class had back during week 1 of the 2019 Student Blogging Challenge (you can read about it here), I knew how to put the slideshow into my post. Most of the quotes in the slideshow are from musicals, but they’re still really inspiring, even outside the context of the show. I also highly recommend these musicals, the songs are really good! I really like all of these quotes, and I hope they can give you that little extra boost to get you through the day.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog! I hope these quotes helped cheer you up. Do you have any inspiring quotes you like? I would love to hear them! If you have any questions, comments, or just something to say, I would love if you could leave me a comment and a link to your blog.

Life: Then and Now

Hey everyone! Emma here. Over the past month, everyone’s lives have been flipped upside down. We’re all trying to adjust to the quarantine, and everyday life as been very different. I’m here to share what my life was like before the quarantine, and what it’s like now.


Before the quarantine, my life was pretty normal. I went to school and did my homework. I took dance classes three times a week, and listened to show tunes and drew in my free time. I walked home with my friends on sunny days when I didn’t have dance, and probably spent too much time looking at memes on Pinterest.


These days, I come downstairs at 10:00 Am and start my schoolwork for the day. I eat lunch around 1:00, and I still draw and listen to musicals when I’m done. I’ve been watching way too much YouTube. If you’re looking for recommendations, check out Overly Sarcastic Productions (warning: some cursing) and Hilariously Scary (I have plenty more, so ask and ye shall receive). I haven’t gotten properly dressed since school let out, so I mostly sit around in my pajamas. Every once and a while me and my friends video chat, so at least I can hear people’s voices and see their faces.

Overall, I really miss school, seeing all my teachers and friends, even the people I don’t like very much. Although I miss school, I’m so glad we can still talk to each other through video chats, and I think the state made the right choice shutting everything down.

Thanks for stopping by! This was a bit of a shorter post, but I wanted to post something, given how inactive I’ve been. How do you feel about the quarantine? Are you doing school at home? If you have any questions, comments, or just want to tell me anything, I would love if you could leave me a comment and a link to your blog!

Blogging Challenge- Week Five

Hey everyone! Emma here, back for week 5 of the Student Blogging Challenge! This week’s theme is music, and like the Broadway nerd I am, I made a “Guess the Song” quiz for a few Broadway musicals I’m into. I made the videos below with WeVideo. It was super easy to use and it works very well, not to mention it’s completely free (I think. Don’t quote me on that. Everything I needed was free, though). It’s overall just a great, simple video editing software.

How to take the quiz:

Watch the video below. You are given a five-second clip of ten songs from popular Broadway musicals. Then, leave me a comment with your guesses. If you don’t know all of them, that’s okay! Just try your best, and don’t feel like you need to guess for all ten of them.



See if you can guess this song. It’s from a musical that is not on Broadway, but it has an awesome soundtrack and was one of the first musicals I got into. This might be a little difficult if you’re not a hardcore musical fan, so I’ll give you two hints, plus an extra five seconds of it.

HINT #1: Theater fans and book nerds alike may recognize the musical this song is from.

HINT #2: Kristin Stokes sings this song

All About Me

All About Emma

Nine interesting facts about me!


  • I am a twin. I have an identical twin sister named Lily, who shares a lot of my interests. She’s my best friend and I get a lot of my ideas for stories, drawings, and animations from her. She even helped me name this blog!
  • I’m a dancer. I take dance classes three times a week, and have been for almost eleven years. I do ballet, jazz, and pointe. Don’t ask me to pick a favorite! I really enjoy different aspects of each style, but I really like learning choreography. It’s very difficult, but I love it and it’s really shaped who I am.
  • I’ve never been out of the country. I have never been out of the United States in my life, or been further west than Kentucky, for that matter. If I could travel anywhere out of the U.S., I would love to go to Greece, or to visit New York again.
  • I’m a huge book nerd and fangirl. I love reading and probably fangirl a little too much for my health. Right now I’m reading the Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan, the Alex and Eliza trilogy by Melissa de la Cruz, and the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson.
  • I’m a writer. I love writing stories, and I have so many ideas I want to write about. I hope to get published when I’m older, if I can stick to an idea. I keep starting a story, getting bored of it, and dropping it. I’ve really only stuck with one (my first), and I’m even on hiatus from that. I shift interests quickly, and I can never seem to stick with one plot.
  • I’m an artist. I love drawing and art of any kind. I work digitally with my drawing tablet at home, and traditionally in a sketchbook, printer paper, the back of schoolwork, or any paper, really. Currently, I prefer digital drawing. The things you can do with layer styles and changing the opacity make it so much easier to, for example, make something look like it’s glowing. Not to mention line art is worlds easier with that undo button!
  • I’m an animator. …okay, not really. I would love to make animatics and animations, but I can never seem to finish one. Similarly to my writing, I loose interest and drop it. If I can ever finish one, I hope to make a YouTube channel in the future where I can post them, along with speedpaints.
  • I’m a big fan of Broadway musicals. I love Broadway (and other) musicals and am currently obsessed with the soundtracks of Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen, along with BeetlejuiceMean Girls, and Six, to name a few. If you find art on my blog (I promise you will), it’s probably fanart of a musical.
  • I’m an okay singer. I like to think I don’t sound like a dying animal when I sing. I’ve definitely improved my singing over the years, and my friends keep telling me I’m good, but I don’t know. I know for a fact that I’m not the best, but I really enjoy it. You can often find me in my bedroom, belting songs like “For Forever” from Dear Evan Hansen or “Heart of Stone” from Six. I really only sing show tunes.
