Hello there! :wave: 

How are you all? I've been kinda quiet here about a month or so again.... Pardon me for that! To show you that I'm not completely dead and actually visit here and get some art done, I decided to show you a dog drawing I did for my SIM game dog. :bademoticon: Go check it out!

Finnish Spitz by KnifeInToaster



I was working night shift the whole summer, so I kinda missed all the pretty summery views, flowers, and all that.. (But I had great time listening my old CDs during the drive to work and back home.. So much nostalgy!) And when I had a chance to go take pictures, I was usually too tired or it was too cloudy outside. :| And now we're living this boring time between beutiful summerdays and beutiful autumndays, so I don't really feel like taking pictures haha. And I'm having some troubles with drawing as well, like, I really like doing the lineart and sketches and that kind of things, but oh man I hate colouring so much...! So I guess I'm having some kind of artblock, hmm..

I also wanted to say that I'm trying to get the hang on tumblr.. Again.. Tbh I don't really get the point of that site. animesweat revision So if you want to see mee reblogging nice/interesting/etc things, you can find my tumblr here  :bademoticon: 

That's all for now I guess. Have a great day! :fallwave:

Hello everyone!

(Sorry for the amazing journal name, naming things is always so easy and everything haha :XD:)

Soo I kinda came back from England much earlier that I had planned. I had good time, but it's better this way. :) I didn't have time to take too much photos, but I submitted one of the horse photos I took.

Oopsy Daisy by KnifeInToaster
I went to see two riding competitions, and this one is from one of them.

I've been back at home about two weeks now. I had to help with threshing because my dad is away, so that's one reason why I've been little inactive here again. Another one is that I'm just lazy. :stare:
    I'm still having some kind of art block with traditional art - I've made few sketches that need lineart and colouring, but I've been super lazy and haven't have inspiration to finish them. I have some vision for the riding drawing, tho, since it's gonna be one of my sim-game horses. There's Finnhorse mare in the conformation picture, but I'm not sure about her colour yet. Plus that sketch need more attention anyway, since it's still quite unfinished.

Untitled by KnifeInToaster Untitled by KnifeInToaster
The sketches I'm talking about. Yes, they're always this ugly before I do the lines and colouring haha :lol:

    And since I have a new computer I can't do any digital drawings, because there's no disk drive in this new one (damn you, technical "progress" and people downloading everything from the internet CURSE YOU!). Therefore I can't install the needed driver for my tablet.. I'm gonna get usb disk drive as soon as I can, hopefully after Christmas at the latest. But before that, I can't do any digital works. 

And on the other news.. I try to expand my skills to baking and handicrafts! I've been doing lots of baking after I got back from England and I hope I'll do something pretty enough that I can submit photos of the baked goods in here. With handicrafts I mean mostly sewing, knitting, and other things like that. I hope I can reuse my old clothes and recycle some other things, like wrapping papers. I'm still learning and doing some planning, but I hope I can show some of my creations here soon! :)


That's all for now. Great day to everyone! Dance!

Hello everyone!


How are you people? I've been quite inactive here lately, eh? Sweating a little... And that's the main topic of today's journal. 

One reason for that is that I haven't had good drawing inspiration for ages. Another reason is that I'm quite unhappy with my current account, and that's the main reason I have barely even logged at all. I've been thinkin this latter problem through. Main reason why I'm not too happy with my current account and it state is that my interest have been changed from when I found my way here in early 2012. Same goes with me as a person - I'm adult now (pfffft, yeah sure), I have some new interests and order of importance in things.. For example. Shortly, I've changed a lot. 
    And this leads to a problem with my old works I've submitted here. And everything in my account, really. I'd like to have fresh start, delete all my old works, journals, etc. But on the other hand, I really, really don't wanna do that, because they show how I've gotten better at drawing. I've thought about making a new account and make a fresh start that way. But I don't really wanna do that, either. So this is a really difficult situation, and I really don't know what to do.
    And with the lack of drawing inspiration.. I still like to draw, but I don't know what to draw, plus I can't concentrate in a one drawing for too long time. I've also started to take interest in taking photographs. This leads to new problems, because I'd like to sort my submitted works clearly in three folders: photos, traditional art and digital art. But since I have so much different works and so much fan art, that leads to new difficulties. Plus I don't have nice watermark to put on my photos, 'cause I haven't yet made a watermark good enough for my liking.
    So yeah. I'm a difficult person, I know, haha :lol: But I'll try to solve this problem somehow, so I can get back in business in the way I used to. :)

Another minor topic today is that I'm leaving to England for few months and I'm not sure, how much drawing stuff I can take with me. I'm quite sure there will be at least some photographs, though. But there's so much things I need (read: want or mistakely think I need) to take with me, but so, so little space... :XD:

That's all for today. Lots of love to all those people that are still watching me, and see you next time. Have a great day! :wave::heart:

Hello everyone! It's art raffle timeeeee! OMG! I can't contain my excitement! 

Last couple of days have been super awesome*, so I thought I'd spread the happiness and joy, and host another art raffle. 

* I was in Gerard Way's concert when he was in Helsinki and got his band's drummer's drumstick (Omg I gets present :faint:) and the whole day was best thing ever because it was the first time I saw him - though I didn't have a chance to meet him. And today I went to visit my old college and saw all the lovely horses there :heart:

Hello everyone! :wave: How are you doing?  

Long time no see, eh? I'm so sorry I've been so inactive here lately! I've been super busy the last few months (mainly thanks to my studies), but I thought I should stop by and say hi. So, hi! Hi! And Merry Christmas! Santa Clause 

Joulu14 by KnifeInToaster


I have so many things I should do during my Christmas holiday: e.g. I need to read three books, and write an essay. But I try to submit here some drawings I did few months back. I haven't had too much drawing inspiration lately, but I try to draw something new, too. :)

I hope you all will have a great time, have some nice presents, and get to eat lots of yummy Christmas food! :hug: Santa La

I almost forgot! We're going to London with my class on next April, so if you have some nice suggestions where a bunch of (history)nerds should go and visit, please tell! Suggestions of good comic shops etc. are also welcome :D

Hi everyone, how are you? :wave: 

Okay so, yesterday I moved to my new school's dormitory. There's super little space compared to another dormitories I've lived before - we don't even have a living room here, for example. Only 2 bedrooms, toilet, little kitchen, and little storage room. I don't even know where I can do laundry! :crying: My roommate is even more shy than I am, and I've spoken to the two another girls only once.. I don't even know the another one's name. :| We just sit in our rooms (I have conquered the kitchen, though, because the food is closer there :XD:), so it's kinda awkwarrrrd..

We had first 'school' day today. Basically, we introduced ourselves to rest of our classmates. They seem nice enough, but oh my god I feel so stupid around them. :shifty: Everyone's seem to know so much more about history than me, and they're smarter.. So if someday I stop logging in to deviantart, it's because I've died from embarrassment. But all the school's staff is really nice and I guess I've actually made some kind of friend from my class, so I got that going for me, which is nice. But when the studying actually starts, I have no idea what to expect from it.

But yeah why I was writing this journal; because I can't be lazy shit 24/7 anymore, I'll be more inactive here. I'm still going to log in every day and answer all the possible comments etc. There's also few drawings I need to do and I'll arrange time for those (though at least the other one won't most likely to be submitted in my gallery), but otherwise I suppose there won't be new art in a while. 

tl;dr - New school, stupid me, more studying, less free time > possible inactiveness



Hope you all are having a awesome day!

...or morning. Or day. Or something. :XD: Anyways, hi everyone, how are you? Hi! I haven't written personal journal entry in a while, so I thought now is a good time.

It seems that my au pair plan is totally failing. What annoys me the most, is that I wasted my whole freaking summer because of this. I didn't look any (summer) job or anything (though I can blame only myself for that), 'cause I was quite certain that I'll be in my way to England in June, or July at the latest. But nooo. :stare: I still have a chance, though, but I really doubt that I have luck with this.

But, there's also good news. I'm going back to school for a year on August! La la la la (Oh dormitory life, I've missed you.. not!) I'll be studying history, probably some archaeology and museology as well. I'm so excited! OMG! I can't contain my excitement! I don't know what I'll do after that, but if I enjoy studying history, I might try to apply in university to study humanities. Who knows!

I was also wondering, can any of you recommend some good meditation music? I found some nice Tibetan and Celtic music from youtube, but I'd like to hear if you have some other recommendations. :dummy: Or if you know any other good ways to relieve stress and anxiety, please tell. Aww 



Have a nice day/evening/morning/whatever!

I graduated two days ago, on Friday 25th. It was awful and I cried so much, and I'm still not processed the fact that it's over. :| Now I'm jobless little hermit, 'cause I can't search any jobs because the Au pair thing. :stare:

Good thing on this month that happened was that I got my first tattoo, yay! :la: Here's pic of it, taken 4 hours after I got it. (That awkward moment when your skin is same color as the floor..) I wanted something what would remind me of MCR but wouldn't be too obvious, so that's why I settled on this idea. Tattooing felt actually quite nice, and I'm started to design new tattoos for myself... :plotting: *wants tattoo sleeve*

Aand just informing you that starting on next month, my monthly journals will only be art features.
