Hello my dear friends!
How has the new year started for you? I hope well. :heart:
I've been working a lot lately: family, studio renewal, lots of art! But it's just fine this way! :aww: 

I wanted to let you know that I've finally opened an online store on Redbubble. I think they have 
fair/affordable prices and quality over there. ;) So if you like go check it out and I hope you can 
find something among my artworks that suits your taste. Or maybe a great gift for someone you love/care? ;)
I'd be happy and thankful. :blowkiss: 

Lots of love and stay tuned for more art to come! :kiss:

Hello my friends, 

letting you know that I'm still alive, just a bit slow and maybe a bit "less social" these months...
due to some personal issues (nothing really scary, I guess? XD ;) ). But I'm slowly trying to sit 
again in front of my computer and take more care of my social-art-life there, and of course get 
back in touch with you. ;) 

I'll upload some new stuff soon, so, if you're still there and not bored of waiting for me ^^; stay tuned.
Hug you all and wish you a wonderful day. Even if it's that hot where you live, take care and be safe! :iconcocoloveplz:
[EDIT 20. April] Added some new items! ;) Check it 
out and thank you so so much for supporting me and my art! :heart: :love: 

Hey my friends! 
I just wanted to let you know that I'm selling some ORIGINALS on Ebay,
so if you're interested check it out. ;) I'll put more on the next days. :heart:

Society6 new item promo *-*

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 12, 2015, 1:38 PM

To celebrate the fact that *now* I'm an adult (guess what...) and also that I'm officially a freelance artist since this month (woohoo) I decided to upload and share with you one of my works for the exhibition in October (me and some other great artist are holding "in-town"). Here's the link to my Society6 shop with some (I hope) nice surprises for you!…

And also because today a new member was added to my family (made of 5 persons and a little/small 2 y.o. doggy): Ira, a cute Sphynx cat-girl! I'm so excited because I always EVER wanted to have a Sphynx cat but never could because, well... all peeps around me were all "ugh bleah what's that!?!" But since I have a wonderful husband, yes, he really is in more than one way (!) now I have a little cute no-fur pie on my stomach (literally, sleeping on me right now XD). And.... I'm just so happy! :excited: :D

Thank you people for supporting me and my art! Hug you all and wish you a wonderful Sunday! :iconfloatingheartplz:

Check it out! :heart:

Vacation time - BACK!

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 8, 2015, 8:04 AM

EDIT: Back at home and alreadz started working again on some paintings (and also on some little things to post here as well XD). Gotta hurry because I have so many ideas in my head that need to come out as soon as possible, before I get lazy! :rofl: 
Yes, finally, even for me comes this time. :D
I will leave tonight for Italy and will be away 2-3 weeks. I don't know if I'll have internet down there, so... in any case... have a good time and see you at the end of August! :blowkiss: 

P.S.: When I'm back I'll officially be a Freelance painter and illustrator, as well as art teacher for children (to begin with). Hurray! :la:

DeviantArtist Questionnaire

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 7, 2015, 5:16 AM

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
    Over 7 years.

  2. What does your username mean?
    I initally had the nick "Nube85" which was the name of my vampire OC on a RPG game (without the 85, that is my birth year...). Now I go by GiovyLoCa which is my real name, sorta. :D

  3. Describe yourself in three words.
    Dreamy, sincere, caring too much of others forgetting my priorities... >_>

  4. Are you left or right handed?
    Right handed.

  5. What was your first deviation?
    Beyonce Speedpaint Portrait by GiovyLoCa
    This is what I found...

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
    Depends on my mood, really. XD

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
    Digital art (Photoshop, still a mystery to me...)

  8. What was your first favourite?
    Princes of Paris by giz-art

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
    There's not a favourite type, I fave what I like even if it's made by "beginners" and if I see there was put effort and love into it. :) As long as it gives me some emotions, I could fave everything. U_U

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
    There are too many I admire. 

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
    :iconstefaniarusso:, :iconcristianaleone: and so many more. I would do an "all the awesome people I met on dA", which are a lot and you can see on my friend's list, because they all are awesome. All the names would make this journal meeeega long. :heart:

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    :iconstefaniarusso: was the one who had a big and great impact on my life/me. Thanks to her I discovered my security and that everything can change from bad to good if you only have the will to stay strong and wait for things to change. And to follow and believe in your dreams because they CAN come true. :huggle:

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
    Pencils and watercolors (and my Cintiq 22HD  of course). :love:

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    My room/studio, where I listen to music and watch streamings while working. It's like my own little world where I can escape.

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
    When we used to upload art here just because we were inspired and wanted to get better or "like that one artist" we admire. Back then it was for fun, making new friends, get constructive criticism and more. Nowadays it is all about money and popularity... sad. :(

Massive Originals Sale on Ebay

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 3, 2015, 12:58 PM

One day left!…

Honestly I need the money to print my stuff for the exhibition in October so... ^^;  I'm cleaning out a bit and decided to sell some originals on Ebay (don't really like that Etsy... -.-). If you're interested and want to grab some for you, check it out. The auctions only last 2-3 days and some of the artworks start at 1€!!! :wow: There are old and new ones, and even some I didn't publish here on dA. ;) 
Also, if there's something you saw in my gallery but not in the auctions, just ask. I may have it somewhere in my room... :meow:
Thank you for your attention! :love:…

I swear I live XD

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 29, 2015, 12:41 AM

Yes I do, sorry for the silence. I was in "knock-out modus" the last whole week and now that I'm (slowly) almost recovered, I'm struggling to find the best way to get back to all the projects I have in my mind/on my desk. ^^; This week will still be hard, but I can't wait for it to be over so I'll have some more free time during the day and not only at night when I should be sleeping (I guess my KO was caused by this as well...). 
So yeah, I'll soon start working on some of the Fanart drawings, those who inspire me most ;). Sorry but I can't do all of them, even if I wanted to, time doesn't allow me...

Also, thanks to brutusbg for the nice visit and morning last week and sorry for my "babbling", I'm at 30% in the morning and this percentage is reduced if I'm sick. :rofl: But it was a nice day and I'm happy we could meet. :huggle: 

Now that I've written a lot about nothing XD, I'll move to the "process of becoming a professional". U_U Yep, because this is one of my main goals for next year. :nod: (Better if it happens by the end of this year though ^^; ). :wave:

Fanart Requests? [CLOSED]

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 16, 2015, 1:41 AM

EDIT: Suggestions are now closed! Thanks to all who commented with wonderful characters. I'll try my best to do as much as possible, since I really like them all a lot. :heart:

Since I don't have a lot of fanart in my gallery (but it seems to be very important for some reasons... :shrug: ), I'll open suggestions for free fanart requests. Everyone is welcome to suggest any character related to Games, Anime/Manga, other Animations (like Disney, Pixar etc...), Books/Novels. 
I won't do realism though, it's more time-consuming and right now I don't have the time/feel like working on one single drawing for weeks. XD
There won't be any promises, but I hope to do as much as possible as long as the characters look interesting to me. ;p
Feel free to spread the word, anyone is welcome, and it would be much appreciated. :thanks:

Hugs and love, 
Giovy :blowkiss:

Win a drawing =) [WINNER]

Journal Entry: Fri May 29, 2015, 12:43 PM

EDIT 08/06/2015 Thanks to the participants. Entries are now closed. Since the entrants are 8, I will still use the random generator to pick the winner. The chosen one will be announced soon so stay tuned! ;) 
And the winner iiiiiiiiiisss.... => #5  Raffle by GiovyLoCa
Congrats, I'll start asap with your request. :clap:

You were warned, I wanted to do a contest/give-away or something, so now! :D 
Since I had announced it before... After having a hard weekend and week due to my youngest daughter having health issues... She has "Pfeifferscher Drüsenfieber" and it was a torture until they discovered about it, that was today (almost 1 month later!). And working 7-8 hours a day as well wasn't helping... :faint:
But now she's on the way of recovery and feels much better, she started eating and playing again, and I'm soooo happy! :happycry: 
For a mother it's the worst thing ever to see your child in such conditions and not be able to do nothing... >_< 

Anyway, since I'm not "overhelmed enough" XD I decided it's time to celebrate so I will give away 1 Slot for free art. There are only 2 rules, very very simple to follow. 

1. I will decide about the kind of artwork if sketch/illustration/portrait/digital/traditional.
2. You have to comment with a link to the character you'd like. OCs are welcome, fanart is fine as well.

The winner will be chosen on Sunday, 7th June (or whenever through the week if I feel so... ^^; ) through
:rose: If there are less than 10 participants, I'll simply close my eyes and point my finger on the monitor. XD
:skull: If the participants are less than 5 the give-away will be cancelled. :(
But I'm sure you want to win some free art? ;) 
So then, go on,spread the word and comment with your favourite OC/character and I'll give you a number. 

Good luck (and always thanks for friendship, support and kind words)! :iconcocoloveplz:

Hi there,
I'm Thomas (still 'Laura' on my documents), an Italian Ftm who started his transition 2 years ago and I'm about to start my teraphy within few months.
The transition in Italy works this way: you have to go to the psychologist every 2 weeks to receive the permission to start hormone therapy.
When I started the sessions I had a job and I could pay for my sessions (which costed around 620€ per year), but then in October 2013 I was forced to dismiss because customers couldn't pay me anymore. Well, I must admit I was happy at first: that 8 to 5 office job was really stressful, since I'm a digital artist, a graphic, and a video editor,
but I couldn't find a job in my field so I had to take the first

Main reasons for being quiet

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 31, 2015, 3:58 AM

I apologize for the lack of updates/uploads lately. The main reason is that I'm working on the comic for my final exam at Comicademy and the delivery date is this week. I know I had plenty of time for finishing it before, but if you take in count the job, family and other things happening, time is not really my friend. ^^; So I worked hard spending my nights for coloring instead of sleeping but I'm proud of the results so far, even if I'd love to sleep... :faint: My schedule is like this right now: Day = Job from 5-8 hours, Evening = Family/household, Night: Drawing/painting like hell, Weekend = Church for my son's communion + lessons, more work and a bit of gaming/reading a book if possible to distract myself. :blush:
I try hard not to neglect commissions as well, since they're always on first place to me, and I try to keep them first, drawing here and there before I start or continue on anything else.

As you can see, I'm not being lazy, just a bit overhelmed until the mid of April. ^^; I'm so sad I cannot sit down, turn on the music on my pc and draw while singing, I'm sooooo missing it. :icondesperateplz:
Also, I'm planning to do a streaming with requests or maybe simply showing what I'm working on (and hopefully finish some more works waiting on my pc XD). Though there will be an announcement soon enough. ;) I only ask you to be a bit more patient. :tighthug:

Hug you all and thanks for your support and friendship. I wish you a wodnerful day! :iconcocoloveplz:

Screencap overpainting?

Journal Entry: Wed Mar 11, 2015, 1:28 AM

So I wanted to try this thing out myself, seeing so many. :)
I know I want it to be an anime/Disney animation, but I don't know which one. 
The suggestions are up to you and I may do a video about the process as well, maybe ready for the weekend over Youtube. ^^
So go on, tell me who you'd like to see me paint over in a screencapture and I'll do my best to make him/her/them look more "painterly" like. :D

If you have screenshots, then you're more than welcome to show me. Maybe you can upload them in your and link to me? Would be nice. :aww:

I'm curious to see the results. :XD:
