Photo manip & finger painting

 In the picture, you can see a Cosplay of Natsu Dragoneel from Fairy Tail.

And a crappy Fanart of Banette for my Pokedex-Project. 'D

There's something special about this painting (besides the poor quality 'D), because I only used my hands (and a brush for the white highlights) to create it. And with hands, I mean hands! I rolled up some handkerchiefs on my fingers, dabbed them into the paint (watercolor) and started painting :D.

It was quite funny, but it also caused a huge mess .. so, I wouldn't recommend this method 'D

Giveaway and Moleskine

As promised, here is the Giveaway for 200 likes on my Facebook Fan Page :3

You guys are awesome, seriously! Thank you soo much for your great support <3 



I also finally finished my first Moleskine sketchbook! :D (full-view please!!)

There are some pages missing on the collage and I blurred some parts, since those pages contain some personal thoughts and names/quotes/drawings of friends (it's a kind of diary to me).

I'm really sorry for all the crap here and there, but I promise: I'll try to make my second sketchbook much better than this one! 

Some sketches out of it, which I have drawn recently:

 Our beloved Akatsuki members Pein/Pain/Nagato, Deidara, Konan, Itachi, Hidan, Tobi/Madara, Sasori, Kakuzu, Zetsu and Kisame :)

I love Naruto (Shippuuden) so much! I can't explain how inspiring and motivating it is to me, but one thing is for sure: it became an important part of my life :3

Inspired by the homonymous song by my favorite band Linkin Band <3.
