Here is a list of fics and fanarts I created for lj-related occasions (exchanges, fests, etc.) Older HP and ASOIAF fanarts can be found on my deviantArt. Most of my ASOIAF fanarts can be found also on tumblr, including fanarts not created for lj.

There are more to come in the future! Stay tuned ;)

Hi! This is a quick post to share with you two news:

1. I'm I’m building a shop on Etsy. I’ll be selling some old fanarts (ASOIAF and HP) and a few original art pieces. I still have to upload some pieces, but you may already give a look. Please please please spread the word :D

2. Today the Kickstarter campaign for "Death Saves" started at Kickstarter (well...) It is a fantasy comics anthology, featuring "Roll of the Die" which was drawn by me. Please have a look.

Thank you!

An old Snape sketch (which I probably never shared before), dated from almost exactly ten years ago. Go figure. HBP still had to be published. Feeeeh.

During the Christmas holidays, I realised I've been reading HP fanfics for more than ten years. I started reading in late spring/early summer 2004. The first fics I read were Harry/Draco. I started reading SS/Hg only after HBP, so it would be... ten years in September, more or less. Incredible.

So, on Wednesday I went to watch The Imitation Game. I liked it immensely, and I even shed a tear or two. Practically since the beginning, the movie made me think of HP, and especially of Snape's work as a double-triple agent. Turing's dilemma, after breaking the Enigma code, about which Nazi attacks to prevent and which to let pass, felt to me incredibly like Snape's dilemma (see: Charity Burbage, etc.) In fact, I read almost the entire movie in a Snape/HP related key.

(By the way, when the movie ended I told my friends I went to theatre with that The Imitation Game made me think of Harry Potter. They laughed, but for me it was just so evident.)

The reveals for the sshg_giftfest were posted this afternoon, and now I can safely say that I was the author of Black, White which I drew for crmediagal. If I can say that of myself, it was one of the drawings I was most proud of, of lately. I wanted to embody what SS/HG represents for me, more of less, and I was really happy with the result.

Many thanks to edolin who drew the fabulous Severus Snape's Advanced Chocolate Making for me. <3

Other favourites from the second half of the fest (in random order):

My gift (the gift for me?) has been posted over at sshg_giftfest and it's simply fabulous! I believe this is the first time I receive a whole comic. Leaflet. Or how you'd call it. Thank you so much, Mystery Artist (who I suspect being edolin) for Severus Snape's Advanced Chocolate Making. Also the title is delicious, I know.

Other favourites of mine in the fest, so far, have been (in random order):

- Present, Past, Potential (fic) Summary: Hermione reappears after years of absence, and Severus finds he likes her company. But there’s something not quite right.

- Embrace (craft) Summary: Item 1: Snape and Granger, in an passionate embrace. I would imagine that she overpowered him, which is why they're laying on the floor.

- Severus Snipe (fic) Summary: Rolf and Luna take Hermione snipe hunting. She catches a different sort of snipe than she intended.

- Happily Ever After the Fact (fic NC17) Summary: Hermione receives a letter from the Ministry informing her of a bit of new legislation, and attempts to deal with it in a unique way. My nod to the genre of Marriage Law fics [...]

- Mistress of the Stacks (fic NC17) Summary: An archaic danger is rampaging through the Hogwarts Library, and it is up to Headmaster Snape and Mistress Granger to solve the mystery in the stacks. But can they overcome their contentious history to fix the problem, or is history doomed to repeat itself?

I'm sorry I don't have the time to elaborate further on their merits, but I consider myself lucky enough that I got to writing down this list before forgetting completely.

There are still not one, but TWO weeks left for the sshg_giftfest awesomeness, so please go there to join the fun.

I am going to make a confession.

I am incredibly fascinated by romance novels.

Long post featuring drawings and short recsCollapse )

I have been wanting to do this since ages! It took me weeks to complete it, but here it is. A seasonal color chart according to Carole Jackson’s Color Me Beautiful.
Ever since I first read it, Color Me Beautiful has been a permanent source of inspiration for me, in my choices for clothes and make-up. Although I’m not a purist, I generally follow her advice for my season (in my case, Summer.) I tend to identify people’s seasons as soon as I see them, and it’s not usual diversion for me to mentally figure people’s seasons on the tube, for example.
In the years, there has been more sophisticated types categories, bringing them up to 12 or even 16 seasonal charts, but I’m not familiar with them, so I won’t mention them here.
Winter is by far the most widespread season. From wikipedia:

Dominant skin tones (an individual’s skin may include more than one): “Very white”, “White with delicate pink tone”, “Beige (no cheek color, may be sallow)”, “Gray-beige or brown”, “Rosy beige”, “Olive”, “Black” (blue undertone)”, “Black (sallow)”.

Although there are PoC belonging to other seasons, the wast majority of people with olive- and darker- skin tone belong to Winter, as well as almost any person with black hair and very dark eyes. They are the only season allowed to wear pure black and pure white, as well as electric blue, magenta, ecc.
Summer people show:

Dominant skin tones: “Pale beige with delicate pink cheeks”, “Pale beige with no cheek color (even sallow)”, “Rosy beige”, “Very pink”, “Gray-brown”, “Rosy brown”.

Summer and winter people should avoid yellow-based colours and make-up, as well as use silver- or white-gold based accessories. (Diamonds anyone?)
As for Autumns,

Dominant skin tones: “Creamy ivory”, “Ivory with pale golden freckles”, “Peach”, “Peach/pink (may have pink/purple knuckles)”, “Golden beige”, “Rosy cheeks (may blush easily)”, “Golden brown.”

Autumns usually have an easy time finding their clothes, since brown- and beige- based colours are very common.
Spring is the most bright and light of all Seasons, although they might have a lot of troubles finding winter clothes in their colours.

Dominant skin tones: “Ivory”, “Ivory with freckles (usually redhead)”, “Peach”, “Peach with freckles (usually golden blonde, brown)”, “Golden beige (no cheek color, needs blush)”, “dark beige, coppery”, “Golden brown.”

A teaser from today's issue of The Endling. This chapter would have made the perfect end...
