Amateur artist. I attended painting classes for five years during high school, then turned to self-teaching, and I'm currently taking painting classes again. I favour graphite, ink, oils, watercolour and wax crayons. I like drawing landscapes and trees, fanart (mostly Tolkien, DW, Harry Potter or Sherlock-oriented), warrior-women and horses. Regarding photography, I like depicting sunsets, trees and nature in general. I also paint miniatures.

I've been cosplaying as an established hobby since Autumn 2013 (and cosplaying OC Tolkien characters since 2003). I consider cosplay to be a hobby purely for fun, and I deeply despise any kind of cosplay elitism or jugding behaviour.

-Fandoms: Doctor Who, Sherlock, Tolkien, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Star Wars, Avengers and the Marvel cinematic universe, Brave, Frozen and 2014's Maleficent, Astérix, Tintin.

ABOUT REAL WARRIOR-WOMEN, OBJECTIFICATION AND THE CHAINMAIL BIKINI (because I see a lot about this on here): I'm very much against anything sexist and against objectification and pornography (different from natural nudity and non-objectifying sexuality). Regarding warrior-women, I am VERY MUCH against the chainmail bikini model: Armour should be practical, useful and protective, not "sexy" (or ridiculous, more like, as I personally don't find a chainmail bikini sexy at all. Just have a look at the Hawkeye iniciative to see just how ridiculous all the attire and poses usually given to women are). Corsets, high heels, skimpy, uncomfortable loincloths, overtight clothing or armour, breastplates with cleavage,...All of these are things a real warrior-woman would NEVER wear, and the 'warrior-women' portrayed in such a way are highly unrealistic. Warrior-women want to protect those parts that are more sensitive and/or vital: The breasts, the chest in general, the genitalia, the thighs (where the femoral is!). And let's not forget about all the come-hither gazes and suggestive poses...warrior-women, real warrior-women, are not here to decorate anyone's world, and neither are women in general, and I find it rather disgusting that they are portrayed in this objectifying (plus unrealistic) way like 90+% of the time :/ .

I can't stand any kind of objectification, be it male or female. This applies not only to warrior-women, but to women (and men) in general (to men too, we're starting to get the ridiculous, objectified, unrealistic male warrior image as well, courtesy of comics such as 300, for example).

I'm tired of seeing so much objectification, not only here, but in the whole Internet! Where is all the healthy erotica and tasteful nudity that expresses sexuality and the beauty of the body without turning it into a piece of meat, full of contorting poses, come-hither gazes and distasteful hypersexuality? There is a LOT of difference between natural nudity and non-objectified sexuality, AND pornography/objectification. Pornography includes objectification and submission of any of the parties involved, and as such, I'm totally against it. I've never found objectification and submission 'sexy' AT ALL. Sue me!

-ON THANKING FOR FAVOURITES: I deeply appreciate people who favourite my work, and I'll generally try to find time to thank you. But I'm pretty busy and can't always comment on every profile, so I'd like to issue a general THANK YOU! here just in case :)

ON BLOCKING: Be warned that if I see to much distasteful objectification and/or disgusting creepiness in your favourites or your gallery, I will BLOCK you, because I don't agree with the depiction of human-beings as grotesque and dehumanized pieces of meat for your pathetic turn-ons (this very much includes bondage, which I find intensely disgusting), and I don't want to see my material among your favourites, or have you interacting with me in any way. Hate comments on this subject will be deleted.
Same goes if you promote sexism and mysoginy in general, rape culture, racism or homophobia.

ALSO: THIS IS NOT A DATING SITE, for heaven's sake. I sincerely appreciate non-creepy, well-meant comments about my work, or about me in general (especially if this isn't out of context - cosplay work, for example), but this is no place for creepy/objectifying/downright inappropiate notes or comments. I will delete and completely ignore such comments. Learn about respect, please, I'm just a random stranger to you and I DON'T KNOW YOU, why did you even think it would be remotely OK to private message someone and make them potentially very uncomfortable just because.

Twelfth Doctor WIP I

Twelfth Doctor WIP I

Finally started on the Twelfth Doctor drawing (later painting, with inks and/or watercolours) I'm planning for LFCC this next month :D I find Capaldi's Doctor often pretty challenging to draw, so not bad for a first session, I think!

13 questions meme

13 questions meme

I got tagged in a 13 questions meme by my Elven-friend mailea-analia (https://www.deviantart.com/mailea-analia) (thanks ^^!) So here goes! 1. Marvel, DC, or Both? Marvel cinematic universe. Not a fan of DC, not because of any rivalry, but rather because I'm more familiar with the Marvel universe and more attracted to it. Also, because I especially resent the way the female characters are objectified with unrealistic 'fighting' outfits in the comics (both DC and Marvel), I stick with the cinematic universe, where they're portrayed in a better way, thankfully. 2. Favorite Fictional Character EVER? Always such a tricky question! I have so many characters I like...Let's see: Favouri
