I've slowed down a bit in writing that Mystrade fic, but I drew something! It's just a quick sketch, but I wanted to post something for Valentine's Day, so here's some Mystrade sap.

Also posted on Tumblr.

I'll take care of it )

Merry Christmas DW and LJ friends! I'm spending the day with my parents eating too much (as usual).

I haven't posted the Christmas cards I made for [personal profile] polarforscherin and [ profile] schwimmerin yet. I know the former arrived safe and sound, I hope the latter did too. Anyway, I'm putting them behind a cut, just in case [ profile] schwimmerin hasn't received hers yet and doesn't want spoilers. ^_^'

I'm not really surprised to announce that my first Inktober was pretty much a failure, as I only drew 3 pictures. It's better than nothing, but still. On my defence, I can say that my free time this month has been spent either sick (2 weekends in a row, definitely not funny), proofreading (I'm helping out a neighbour on a project of his) or trying to find a damn flat. I even found what had the potential to be my dream home, but it was on the third floor without lift. And I mean European third floor, not American: ground floor, first floor, second floor, third floor. The flat was great and the price reasonable, but the thought of walking up those stairs after a long day at work, maybe after a stop at the supermarket, carrying heavy bags... Not so much. Oh, well. It's frustrating, but I'm not giving up.

Anyway, here are my three Inktober drawings:

So, [personal profile] polarforscherin's Christmas card seems to be lost forever. :(

Luckily, I always take pictures of the cards I draw before sending them, so she can at least see what it looked like:

Hopefully it's one of those cases when letters turn up randomly months or years later. Never say never! XD

And while I'm on the topic of Christmas cards, here are the other two I sent this year:

Three out of four Christmas cards have reached their recipients, so I can share them here.

Christmas cards sent! I had to send my special errand boy (aka my dad) to the post office because I could barely stand this morning, but I'm feeling better now. The power nap I took in the afternoon definitely helped.

I also decided to be productive and doodled something:

I hadn't drawn anything Harry-Potter-related in years, and I mean literally years, and since I've been in a Hermione mood lately, the choice was predictable.

I should also work on the Mystrade fic I started, but I don't know if I can actually write the dirty bits. I'm getting old. XD

So, that comic strip. It sounded funnier in my head, I swear. Also, someone must have had the same idea before, I mean, come on...


I told you it would be silly )

I spent the whole afternoon yesterday working on a comic strip. It really shouldn't have taken so long, but I'm terribly rusty. It took me a while to figure out what style to use, then this happened:

I drew on paper and coloured the pictures in Photoshop. The only problem is I don't have a decent scanner at home, so I had to touch up the lineart of every single drawing, which means it took me twice as long. Oh, well, hopefully I'll be able to post the finished strip either tonight or tomorrow.

And yes, it's going to be silly.

Merry Christmas! I survived the usual intense eating and I'm finally ready to post the Christmas cards I sent my LJ friends. Oh, btw, [identity profile], I got your card on the 23th, thank you! I don't know if you got mine before flying back home, but this year's card isn't very Christmassy, I wanted to be original but I don't know if it worked.

Anyway, here are the cards:

Anyway, I hope everyone liked their cards, I loved yours and had a lot of fun drawing them, these were pretty much the only drawings I did this year. That will have to change next year.

Sorry for posting twice in a day, but I've just finished my first [community profile] trope_bingo art and I wanted to post it before going to sleep. It's genderswap! I've wanted to draw something like this ever since I read "Some kind of Freaky Friday" by [personal profile] delicatale (because the way she described female!Steve was damn hot), but I never actually did it. Until now! I also thought of writing something to go along with it, but it would end up being too similar to the bodyswap story I'm currently writing, so I just drew the fanart.

I drew it on paper and coloured in with Photoshop, it's nothing fancy but I'm glad I finished it. Also, I suck at drawing hands and shoes, but that's nothing new.


I got a little carried away drawing Steve's eyelashes )

I was supposed to go to my cousin's place for lunch with my parents today, but I really wasn't in the mood. So I stayed home, relaxed, watched two Hawaii Five-0 episodes from Season 1 (just to check if the DVDs I got my mum for Christmas work, of course) and finally finished the H50 drawing I'd been working on. Last piece of fanart of the year!

I wanted to draw some Christmas fanart but I've been terribly busy and not really inspired. I'm working on something right now, but it's not Christmas related, so I'll post it when it's done, maybe on Boxing Day.

But I do have some Christmassy fanart! The card I sent to [ profile] schwimmerin, it arrived on the other side of the Atlantic safe and sound and before the 25th!

Farin wishes everyone a very rock'n'roll Xmas! )

And here's our new Christmas decoration, an adorable owl family we got at the arts and crafts fair a couple of weeks ago (the silver snowflake was not included):

Hoot! )

Another crazy day at work. People make the most unbelievable mistakes while filling in the most basic forms, then of course they turn everything in at the very last moment so we have to run back and forth to meet the deadline. Sometimes I think I take my job too seriously, it feels like I'm the only one who gives a fuck in that office.

Anyway. [ profile] angrylogic and [ profile] kiviraat got my Christmas card! I'm SO impressed with how efficient the postal service has been this year. I hope things will go on like this and I'll receive my Amazon parcel tomorrow. Fingers crossed!

Today I was finally able to watch the latest H50 episode. I downloaded it days ago but didn't have time until this morning. Things at work are still insanely busy, I'm alone in the office doing the work of 2 people and on top of everything else today we launched the new website of the local newspaper I collaborate with. I'm exhausted. Hopefully I'll be able to fix the last ongoing problem at work next week, so I can relax for a few days over Christmas.

And while we're talking about Hawaii Five-0, I said I would buy Season 1 for my mum, right? Well, I couldn't find it anywhere. It was released in July and it's gone. Luckily I found it on, I should receive the parcel at work on Tuesday.

Here, have a spoiler video from next week's episode, it cheered me up immensely (unless you don't like Steve/Cath, in that case don't click):

Aaand [ profile] urania_chan got my Christmas card! I didn't know what to draw this year, so I used one of her LJ icons for inspiration.

I survived the arts and craft fair. I used to go every year to buy Christmas presents, but I didn't go last year and the one before and had forgotten how huge and crowded it is. There are stands from all over the world, with lovely handmade objects and delicious food, but man, I'm exhausted now.

[ profile] polarforscherin got my Christmas card! She asked for "Sherlock harpooning a pig in Mycroft's office/Diogenes Club". I didn't draw exactly that, but hey, there's a pig in the picture!

Can you imagine Mycroft's face? )
gothikmaus: (Xmas)
Aaah, I'm enjoying my day off immensely. Sure, I checked my work email this morning because there are a couple of things that are still ongoing, but I forwared the important ones to my boss and the others can wait.

I was thinking of going to the Christmas market, but I didn't feel like facing the cold and the hordes of Christmas shoppers. So I slept in, had a waffle for breakfast and caught up with some online stuff this morning, so now all I have to do is finish two Christmas cards. I still need to buy a present for my friend S, my dad and my mum, but I know what to buy, so it shouldn't be a problem. Actually, I've already bought a present for my mum, but my dad didn't know what to get her, so I suggested the Hawaii Five-0 DVDs and kindly offered to buy them for him. I am so very generous. Can you believe they released Season 1 on DVD just a couple of months ago?! I wanted to buy it for my mum last Christmas but couldn't find the DVDs anywhere and then last summer I found out it hadn't been released for the Italian market yet! Oh, well, at least they're here now.

And while we're talking about H50 and Christmas, [ profile] azziria got my card! I only sent it on Monday or Tuesday, I'm very impressed.

The Steve/Danny drawing is finally done! \o/ I coloured it very quickly, I didn't have the energy to do anything else.

This is that H50 picture I was talking about. As some of you may have seen, [ profile] rocsfan had pretty much the same idea a few days ago. I didn't know about her entry at first (I was walking to the office when inspiration struck) and hopefully no one will think I'm stealing other people's ideas. Since we all know how much Steve loves grenades, it was kind of inevitable that more than one person would get the same idea, right?

I had what I thought was a brilliant idea for a drawing while I was walking to work earlier, but I've just seen from an icon that someone else has already had the same idea. /o\

At first I was all "Aw, damn, now I can't draw that anymore." But it's not the exact same thing, just a similar concept and I had that idea before seeing that icon. And I'd really like to draw this. (It's Steve and Danny, btw.) I just don't want people to get mad and think I'm stealing their ideas... D: (Also, if I'm perfectly honest, it's not such an original idea. I'm sure a few other people in this fandom must have come up with something similar. I should just stop fretting and start drawing, y/y?)
gothikmaus: (H50 - Steve/Danno)
Dear LJ, your timing is really awful: you worked perfectly well this morning, but when I finally have a free moment to post, you decide to throw a tantrum. I hate you.

Anyway, let's make this quick while LJ is working. Here, have some sappy Steve/Danny fanart. Drawn for [ profile] h5oartvalentine's Valentine's Day fest, I used this prompt from [ profile] sexycazzy: Steve/Danny - Steve plays the guitar to Danny at his small apartment.

I used this picture as inspiration. Background pattern found here.
