Ahh, so hard to pick a favourite one, these are all lovely ^^ Especially the coloured ones have a certain feeling of old magazine advertisements, like in 1920s.

You actually sew some of these designs, am I right? I make / modify clothes myself, but hence Im a goth theyre all rather gloomy and / or basic. Simply put: black :D

Thank you! I hate to color my pictures for the fact that I normally end up with trash, the few good ones are the only ones allowed on DeviantArt. But thank you ever so much more for loving them!

I want to be a costume designer so I do sew when ever I have the time, but work (which I also sew for) is taking up all my time so I am stuck sewing this boring stuff for work and not my own designs. Aw but goth has some amazing looks to it! You can do so much with just simple black! I have an antique tuxedo with tails that I wear with a top hat and petti (sp?) coat, it is one of my favorite gothic styled outfits. But really I don't feel comfortable unless I am making others uncomfortable, you know? I really enjoy looking at your style though, it is a more fun version of goth. And I adore your hair! Your too pretty to be a guy, are you sure? XD Have a great day!

I usually end up spilling some water or leaning on the pic and messing up everything. Thus I enjoy drawing so much more than painting :P

Ive been thinking about using some computer program for colouring (such as GIMP), but though itd possibly be "cleaner", it just wouldnt be the same.

I have tried painting but I have no skill for it I guess becuase it always turns out a big mess. I enjoy working with ink pens the most, that is why so many of my pieces are black and white.

I use GIMP right now but only for when I am bored and wish to try out new stuff. I seem to only be good at cute little pictures when it comes to computerized, which isn't really me so I am unhappy with it. I have just drawn this really crazy looking picture of a man pulling a woman's heart strings, I really need to upload it... anywho today is spring cleaning so I should get back to work. How has your day been?

Phew, been busy bee lately... not that Id have actually got anything useful done, just been buzzing around like heck. Its spring, I guess - but no spring cleaning for me, thanks :P

I like painting, though I feel that I dont have any special skill for it either. I somehow enjoy it, anyways, playing with colours and all. I have these "periods" (no, no menstruation :D) when I use only certain colours, which also reflects to my clothing. A couple of years ago it was black and red, now its been green and blue, mostly.

I just tried GIMP, but its a real pain in the neck trying to get proper pics, coz I have to use mouse for drawing >.< Wow, that sounded... weird. I suddenly had this flash before my eyes of little, squeking and squirming mouse, dipped in paint.Oh well, guess I need some sleep. Take care =^.^=

Poor little mouse! Although he most likely deserved it... but anywho it does help to have a tablet so I can understand why sticking with none computer art is a good thing. I really love your paintings though! I think you have a real talent with that!

*gets egomaniac* Its sooo nice to hear compliments ^^ Ehem,seriously speaking; I have been teased about the way I look and my style for several years, almost all of my time in elementary and high school (for over 9 years that is). So I cannot describe how much it means to me that some people actually DO like the way I look - its tough to be "different", eh :) Guess I still have somewhat low self-esteem, but I try to overcome that.

Urgh, I know exactly how it feels like to not to be able to do the things youd really enjoy, to be creative etc. >.< I keep my fingers crossed and hope that youll be able to fulfill your dream :) Hehe, this must sound like flattering, but I really do think youre talented and Id like to see clothes youve designed.

It really is ice to get complements! Wow, that is horrible that you would get teased. I mean I understand how that is possible, I used to get it alot, until I accidentally punched the quarter back XD He deserved it... In all honesty and in a none creepy/stalkerish way I really think you are just beautiful so I just don't see how people have any right to say otherwise. You should hold your head high, they are all jeoulsous (sp?)anyways!

Well it really is a good job so I shouldn't complain and it will look good on my collage resume, I just hate having to bite my tongue when I wish to yell my opinion of her ugly clothes I am forced to work with. And thank you! I really do need to put some pictures up of my sewn items. I am not good with cameras, everything turns out blurry.
