Sterntaler

And even more art. ;)

The picture is called "Sterntaler" which is the titel of a German fairytale from Grimm's Fairy Tales. As far as I know the English title is "The Star Money" or "The Star Talers".
The fairytales tells the story of a very poor but generous little girl who gives away all of her possessions in acts of good-heartedness. In the end, the stars fall to earth before her and turn into pure gold. She ends up rich.

The stock model for this one is Miss Cherrybomb







And some in-between/WIP stuff...



black cherry

Whoah, new art! Really! :D

"black cherry"


The words in the background are from one of my favourite poems called "Invictus" by William Ernest Henley.

"Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul."

Let them eat cake...

Long time no see! :D

So I've finally finished my exams and have some time on my hands. Unfortunately, I can't use it for making art because my Wacom tablet has somehow become unable to install on my computer. Which is weird, because it has worked fine before. But now the computer is not able to run the tablet software. I need to find out what's wrong with it, I have some pictures in the making which I want to finish.

But now, having time on my hands - what to do? Well - BAKE!

These are just regular cookies, made with vanilla-flavoured dough and with lots of sugar icing. The ones with the letters on them were gifts for friends. 





And these are two types of muffins - "Russischer Zupfkuchen"-Muffins (no clue how to translate that...) and cherry muffins with cinnamon (so yummy!).

wear black, bleed glitter II

More WIP of the popart/neon craziness picture. Need more work on the hair, though.
I don't know which one I like better - the black based or the white based one...
