I hope you've been good this year

…otherwise, Krampus will come and give you a good beating for being such a naughty child!

Hahaha, Merry Christmas, everybody! I hope you get to spend this day with your family and beloved ones!
Much love!!!
(ノ◕ ω ◕)ノ♥♥♥

So, guess who was the most bitter of the bitter Grinches this year

( oಠ nಠ)ノ

Only because I got zero gifts this year, didn't eat any of the giant chocolate cake nor other fattening, greasy food there was while everybody else was happily stuffing themselves with delicious candy and turkey.

Screw the whole 'this is about spending precious time with your beloved ones' and whatnot! I'm here just for the presents, money and food ヽ(o`皿′o)ノ

Now allow me to remain sitting in my corner angrily staring at you while you finish eating your cake.

...Thinking about it, I think I would have even prefered getting the good beating from Krampus..!

Not that anybody cares

...and just so you know that I'm not dead!
I'm alive! Well, if you could say so; I've been devoting ALL of my time to University, homework, some University projects, finals and my Thesis. I have no life anymore, no time to hang out with friends, no time to read, no time to draw... Hell, not even time to imagine! (Not that the inspiration is here anymore, anyway... ).
All I ever want to do these days is crawl into bed and hide, I don't want to talk to anybody, nor even think anymore.
Damn, it's now 4am and I'm still awake working on some stupid project I don't really care about to begin with. I'm upset and moody and will growl at anybody who dares aproaching me right now.

...Can't I just cry to sleep and wake up some day when my life is not this upsetting anymore and I love everything about it?
I hate everything and everyone and blaaaaarrrrgggghhhhhhh

Can you see how much of a cry-baby/angsty teen I have become in these past months...?

Most unfortunately,

As you may have already guessed, it was my birthday (on the 23rd), and I still can't believe how I still have not actually done anything with my life. All I have ever done is study. For 22 years, study hard. To please others.
All I want to do is to paint and to write and to create.
Now, as every day passes by, I can't help but feel as such a worthless uncertainty.

I don't know anymore.

What a beautiful day it is! Today, 65 years ago, one of the most strickingly flamboyant gifts to music and art was born: You know I'm talking about The King himself: FREDDIE -Youweretooawesomeforthisworld- MERCURY, the master mind behind the astounding marvelousity best known as QUEEN (*Cheers from the crowd in agreement: HAIL MERCURY!!!!!!!!*).

Words fall short trying to describe your incomparable talent, there aren't enough compliments to effectively praise your music and persona: Such a talented artist and a playful performer, always charismatic.. always giving his everything during concerts, exposing his soul to the world in every single one of his songs; you gave us some of the most beautiful, powerful anthems ever known to mankind: all of your songs hold such strong emotions and passion to them, there is always a special meaning to them; even to this day, you keep inspiring not only musicians, but people of all kinds around the world. You were the mentor and the ultimate goal to many artists from all over the world.
You certainly were a true inspiration: no matter what, listening to the astonishing tones of your voice always makes things better.

You were, you are, and you will remain the biggest, the better, the dearest. For you and your music were one of the best parts of my childhood, my adolescence and life; you have always been one of my most dearest sources of inspiration: you taught me it was okay being myself, being creative, being an individual and to always stay true to who I am. I'm sure I'm not the only one feeling this way, Freddie, your music touched many hearts...

You are most dearly, greatly, constantly missed, Sir!
And because of this, we want to wish you a very

My little tribute to you: The beautiful Crest you designed for QUEEN...

Now, if you'll excuse me, I will now proceed to spend the rest of my day listening to QUEEN's complete discography and watching their live concerts... Hell, maybe I'll even listen to father's: A Night At The Opera LP, only because it's such a special ocassion ; u ;

Also! Don't forget to check QUEEN's official youtube channel: they're streaming QUEEN's 1986 legendary concert. A definite must-see!
...And, did you see today's Google logo? FREAKING AWESOME!! Of course, The King didn't deserve any less..!

Imagination & Inspiration

As an artist in the making, to me, it's always important to find a source of inspiration, may it be in the form of beautiful imagery, astounding musical pieces... even a fresh breeze of wind blowing by night, looking at that one lonely star shining in the midnight sky, reading an absorbing book... maybe just laying down in the grass while looking at the twilight sky... anything... anything that makes you feel burningly passionate about life... the right stimulus at the right moment, mixed with your own feelings at some given point can make a beautiful difference.

Lately, a large part of my inspiration has come from religious imagery, thinking of heavily ornamented beings, intricate jewelry, pieces of classical music, everything golden and depicting a sense of holiness, and the work of the great masters of painting.
Almost as much as I enjoy creating, I highly enjoy assembling the right inspirational atmosphere for myself, according to the aesthetical results I want to achieve with a certain painting idea: Herr Mozart's music is mandatory whenever I feel like painting elegantly embellished beings covered in intricate pieces of jewelry and light... Inspiration comes effortlessly to me while listening to classical music, I can't help but getting a feeling of magnificence and opulence... I trully enjoy listening to classical! ; u ;

Now, for this particular painting (barely just a concept sketch by now), my inspiration came from the elegance and sensuality of japanese geishas, rococó, french architecture and art nouveau; I must say, I have highly enjoyed designing my own pieces of jewelry, even if most of the times I have no clue on what I'm doing..! ~ n ~

Still, up to this point, I must admit I'm pretty content with my design... but I still have to design a decent kanzashi to finish the headpieces. WISH ME LUCK. *Click for bigger image if you please!*

Take care and until next post! Have a lovely day c:

1st Giveaway Winners pt1: ☆☆☆~ Joe's Blog ~☆☆☆

**Click on the image for full size**

\(^▽^*) Now, will the beautiful Joeanna please come and claim her prizeeeeeeeeeeeee (*^▽^)/
(Remember that my giveaway prizes were going to be cartoon portraits of the winners)

SO! My very first Giveaway Winner of all times: Miss Joeanna Portia from
"Joe's Blog"! *Click, click*
You should check her blog out too, because it's quite interesting! She's a talented artist, I really like her illustrations, specially the ones portraying musicians and film stars; she's got quite a unique, colorful style, and her use of shapes and color is really cheerful! That's what I like the most about her illustrations.
I also like her vlogs, she's really charming and sooo pretty! :3

I'm really, really ashamed, I know it took forever, but I really had a lot of things going on with Uni and work... and then my computer died on me... and then months passed before I could get ahold of a new computer... and then Uni and work again and... I'M SORRY. I hope you can forgive me Õ n Õ

Now, having said that, it also took me quite some time to finish it: first looking for a cute picture of Joe to draw (stalking habilities have surely paid off!), then trying to portray that and translate into a drawing, then digitally painting, doing the background, the dress print, the details... It was surely some hard work! But I really tried my best and I think it looks nice. OF COURSE it had to be worth the wait! Hehehe …Well, at least I hope it is! ; u ;

So, as you may remember, I made this giveaway as a way of thanking all of you, dearest readers for following this 'ere blog; this really means the world to me. Thank you very much, with all my heart, Thank you!

...Now, back to work, since I still owe 2 more illustrations to:
*** Miss Caroline from Ergy Erg ***
*** Miss Jemina from JeminaJakin ***

Until next time it is! Have a lovely day c:

Cage in a Cave

"Fletcher Christian, he found him a cave
It was sort of a privacy place, When he'd go there nobody could find him

Fletcher Christian, he found him a cave, and he'd go there to be alone

He'd paint a picture, he'd comb his hair
Anything to relieve his depression

Fletcher Christian, he'd go to his cave when he needed to be alone
-"Cage in a Cave" lyrics by Rasputina

Indeed, just like Mr. Christian, I have been a true hermit myself for these past months.
The dark grass my bed, the freshly dug cave my house.
Birds and spiders my friends.
The distinct panther's cry my night companion.
Flowers and twigs now scruffily embroider my hair.
Awaken by the sun. Going to bed at dusk.
I spend my time embellishing the cave's walls; painting some new friends onto it.
Life has certainly been delightful. I couldn't possibly ask for more.

Still, it was only so long before I felt like reinserting myself back into society. Therefore, I came back to my family house and my relatives. I can't say they weren't thunderstruck when they saw me knocking on their door. I reckon the dried flowers, twigs and spiderwebs tangled in my then mane-like hair didn't make the best of impressions.
Perhaps, it was my 'Hello, Mother and Father' growl they didn't quite understand... ( ´ A `U)

Either way, here I am again. Hair washed and face wiped. No dried flowers to be seen.
I feel almost human again!
...Good thing I still remember how to use the silverware...!
...and the computer, as you may have already noticed!
(* ̄▽ ̄)ノ☆

So, how have you been, dearest followers? Any exciting summer stories you'd like to share with me?
Tell me!
I promise I still am 100% civilized & won't bite/growl at you!

I swear I have not been wasting time

I can't really think of something worth saying, so, I suppose the saying 'A picture is worth a thousand words' may be the most accurate one to describe my current situation.
As you can see, this is some work in progress, I'm not even done sketching and I still have many things to figure out about this particular painting. This, I'm thinking will be a watercolor painting (most likely, will end up becoming a mixture of various techniques; most probably watercolors, oil paint and prismacolors), but we'll see what happens!

So, Take care, Dearest Followers and see you very soon!
I guess I was only just checking in so that you know I'm still alive ~ u ~

We Are Men Of Honor (pt. 1)

...And like such, we always keep our word. On my honor, I shall never break my word to draw people as I see fit (...even if it takes a few weeks for me to completely fulfill my word...!) Ó A Ò

...That being said, and before you start thinking of me as a crack-brained sire...! What I meant by these lines was to simply clarify: I always fulfill my word! That is, I STILL have in mind I owe some people artwork (I only ask you to be patient, for University and work have proven to be a lethal combination) but I am working on keeping up with the drawings I have to get done before I expire from this 'ere world!

Yes? So, according to the above statement, here is one of the many portraits I had promised to do:

Let me introduce you to Miss M.:

She is the mind behind the Creature of the Night tumblr (which is filled with beautiful gore imagery (I warn you in advance, in case you dislike gore)); a blog I enjoy visiting, even though I have no tumblr account...! She shows a lot of charisma, as well as some very interesting ideas... now, add the fact that she is incredibly gorgeous, and you've got the recipe for success! Or, in this case, Gorgeousity * w *)/

Now, let's get technical, shall we?

Technique: Hand drawing and black ink using Uniball micro Deluxe in 0.5. Everything was hand-colored using Prismacolor Professional colors. The snakes, as well as the flowers, were digitally added using Photoshop.

I really liked drawing Miss M. although, I must say it was a challenge trying to portray her delicate features accurately, she has some unique features, so it was quite difficult trying to draw her while maintaining her essence. Also, I had never drawn facial piercings before! So it worried me on how things would turn out in the end ; A ; On a brighter note, I really, and I mean REALLY liked drawing her lips! It was interesting trying to portray the femininity and delicacy to her lips on my drawing, but I think I made a nice job in the end c:

So, this was Miss M....Pretty, right? Okay, until next time (or drawing)! Cheers!

Breaking News: Trouble in Paradise

At the risk of sounding like a shallow devotchka for using the title above to discuss a fashion related subject, instead of one of the more important current world issues, let me apologize in advance; but the very important news tormenting yours truly today: Herr John Galliano. More specifically, his sad departure from Dior. More sadly, it wasn't precisely a "departure" , but more of a "YOU ARE FIRED" situation.

The man in question, Herr John Galliano, dearest

I am sure you have already heard about the whole Galliano's Anti-Semitic Scandal? If you have not, the story goes like this:

-Herr Galliano is accused of making some shameful anti-semitic comments at La Perle bar in Paris, as well as verbally abusing a couple nearby.

-Dior decides to suspend Herr Galliano from his responsibilities with the company. Dior chief executive Sidney Toledano says: "Dior affirms with the utmost conviction its policy of zero tolerance towards any anti-semitic or racist words or behaviour". This is when I thought: DAMN, you better not have said that, my most admired Galliano...!

-Sadly, and most terribly, it's Official; he DID said it! And you can read all about it right here. OR anywhere you w
ant, because it's already EVERYWHERE. There's even an infamous video featuring a drunk Galliano ranting against jews. And so, it's done, Herr John Galliano is fired from Christian Dior. Now, as much as I adore Herr Galliano's work, I must admit Dior handled things the very best way, they immediately took charge and made the (wether I want to accept/admit it or not) right decision since that was a trully shameful behavior from Herr Galliano ( ; n ; ).


This was a very unfortunate incident; I'm still quite astonished by some of the things said, I mean, it never would have occured to me that Herr Galliano would even have those kinds of views, specially when he had always seemed to be very open about acceptance of diversity, as well as a respectful, tolerant person. And, while I may not agree with many of the ideas of judaism, nor even manage to understand their points of view, I still respect them, because someone having a different mentality or ideas from what I think is right, does not give me, nor any of us the right to degrade nor hate upon others. Sigh.

Even so, I still deeply admire Herr Galliano as the artist he is. As much as I can't support his rude opinions, I still hope this experience will become more of a chance to change for him, to make up for his mistakes, learn something important from all of this and become a better person. Hopefully, he will manage to rebirth from his ashes and take over the Haute Couture world once again. WELL, if comes to "hoping" and "desiring" I must say, I still helplessly HOPE that all of this was a big, gigantic missunderstanding, and the person in that video is not Herr Galliano, but his unknown evil twin or something...! \(´Д`*\ ) ...... After all, one can dare to dream, right??? Hmmmmmmmmmm.......
*Hopeless sigh*

At least I know I will always admire his gorgeous past work and his influence on the fashion world. I mean, the man was an absolute genious! Despite of his shameful behaviour, one can't just deny that fact; I mean, you can't just "throw his talent under a rug" or something. I remember he was the main reason I even became interested in fashion; I had always perceived fashion as a shallow, empty industry, but it was Herr Galliano's work what trully intrigued me and made me realize how mistaken I was: fashion is a form of art. It allows ideas to become embodied into gorgeous garments; you can express yourself through fashion. Every single garment becomes a master piece, the culmination of an artist's hardwork. Herr Galliano's work showed me that. That is why I will forever deeply admire him as an artist, as well as his beautiful artwork. But enough talk (I think you, dearest of readers may already be thinking the same) and allow me to show you what the fuzz is all about, yes? I think it will be better to remember him by his artwork, rather than by these regretable events.

^Christian Dior Fall 2009Couture^
You can absolutely feel Herr Galliano's passion and fervor for his beautiful artwork

^Christian Dior Spring 2010 Couture^

^Christian Dior Spring 2011 Couture^
A breath-taking collection. One masterpiece after the other

^Christian Dior Fall 2010 RTW^
Even the so-called RTW Collections were dashingly stunning! Such a thoughtful collection: graceful and beautifully structured; the fitting is really flattering, each silhouette: a beautiful one of a kind.

^John Galliano Fall 2009 RTW^
This is my most favorite collection. Everything about it is absolutely gorgeous and perfect. All of the models look like precious deities. Without any exaggerations, I can say this collection is absolute perfection; all gorgeousness and gorgeousity taken a corporeal form
; u ;

Thank you, Galliano, sir, for all of the beautiful works of art you showed to the world, I hope you manage to get back in track again soon, learn from this unfortunate and become a better person... until next time! Peet all!

TOO WEIRD TO LIVE.................

.............................TOO RARE TO DIE

So, guess who is still alive! Meaning, death was not the reason keeping me from updating Dobby Bloggy...?
I'M -FINALLY- BACK after almost 5+ months of neglecting my poor, beloved Blog!

(Caused by me not being able to get a hold of a computer, since my old one sadly, and most unfortunately fell into a comma, resulting in me helplessly neglecting this 'ere blog)
But, once again, I'm here, checking in with you, dearest Followers...!
...I mean, you didn't really think you would get rid of me so easily, hmmm?

Besides, it was one of my New Year's resolutions to actually become a... well, Responsible person in EVERY aspect of life, and somewhere in my mind, for better or the worse, that involves Bloggy, too! So here I am, battery, and mind fully charged with new things to tell you, my estimated readers! I still have many stories to tell, thoughts to share, things to show you...! My mind feels like a topsy-turvy vortex filled with many ideas all of them eager to be made known to the world.

Also, I can't wait to hear from all of you once again! Get to read your posts, and know how this new year has been treating all of you, I want to know how things are going on Your sides of the screen, and stalk... Ehem! I mean, visit your blogs. YES?

I guess this is "HELLO AGAIN, WORLD!"
It's good to be back (yet again) c: So, that's it for now, and until next time, yes?
