“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me … Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.” – as quoted in The Wall Street Journal (Summer 1993).
I'm not an apple fanatic by any means, but I will acknowledge a game player when I see one.
Christmas presents dont substitute for a familly. Even if she lives in this big and warn house, Even if she get a lot of presents, Everything is cold today.

This character is called Jade, indeed it's a new character I wanted to draw something for Christmas, but something which is supposed to be original, not too foolish or macabre.... I was inspired by a photo [link] from ~ForestFaeri (Thank you ) The pose is hard to do, very hard so indeed I drew bad the pose ^^
Hey guys! Happy Saint Patrick day! hope you have a guiness in your hand . Here goes an Irish story for this day. This is an old pic, hope you like it
graphire/PSCS/6hours/music: Therion - Cu Chulainn [link]
Let´s Wikiattack! Cú Chulainn ([kuːˈxʊlɪnʲ] ( listen), Irish for "Culann's Hound"), also spelled Cúchulainn, Cúchulain, Cú Ċulainn, Cúchullain or Cú Chulaind, is an Irish mythological hero who appears in the stories of the Ulster Cycle, as well as in Scottish and Manx folklore. The son of the god Lug and Deichtine (sister of Conchobar mac Nessa), he was originally named Sétanta.
He gained his better-known name as a child after he killed Culann's fierce guard-dog in self-defence, and offered to take its place until a replacement could be reared. At the age of seventeen he defended Ulster single-handedly against the armies of queen Medb of Connacht in the epic Táin Bó Cúailnge ("Cattle Raid of Cooley"). It was prophesied that his great deeds would give him everlasting fame, but that his life would be a short one. This is the reason why he is compared to the Greek hero Achilles. He is known for his terrifying battle frenzy or ríastrad (similar to a berserker's frenzy, though sometimes called a "warp spasm" because of the physical changes that take place in the warrior), in which he becomes an unrecognisable monster who knows neither friend nor foe. He fights from his chariot, driven by his loyal charioteer Láeg, and drawn by his horses, Liath Macha and Dub Sainglend. In more modern times, Cú Chulainn is often referred to as the "Hound of Ulster".
May you all enjoy the day with your loved ones. Have a Happy Valentine's Day.(I know, it's a bit early for that) Alright everyone, go lovebend your heartstrings. Consider this a part 2 to my Christmas pic. And i know Mako's scarf is probably thicker in weave, but i made it silk-like for added effect. You can download/print it if you like.
