Big Sister's Big Celebration with Little Ponies by Tabascofanatikerin
Big Sister's Big Celebration with Little Ponies
There is my big sister's birthday again!
And I had the idea to let her celebrate with ponies...from "My little Pony" to be exact.

Is she a fan? I don't really know if she still is but back then when we grew up together we loved watching the 1980's cartoon and playing with MLP toys.
However, actually we never got into "My little Pony: Friendship is Magic", the newest reboot. I guess she has never watched it and I watched the first episode or first two episodes and wasn't really keen on continueing.
But the point wasn't to feed a "MLP: FiM" fandom we don't share - it was congratulating my sister in a way that also pays a tiny little tribute to the classic princess ponies from the 1980's.
If you don't know: There was a couple of episodes that told the story of a kingdom where only princess ponies live - each of them with individual powers and designs - but their biggest issue is who should be the rightful Queen. They learn to know Spike the little dragon, the bushwoolies, some regular ponies and also their human friend Megan. The kingdom gets under the threat of a villain and his sidekicks, he wants power by stealing the princesses' magic wands but in the end he dies and everything's fine.
I think this story is as rememberable for me as it is for my sister.

If you'd like to get a quick look on the original ponies, here's a YouTube clip which also includes their probably most iconic song:…

In this picture I tried to "convert" the classic characters to the new "Friendship is Magic" style. It was the first time I tried this style so it might not look that great but it was also fun, I admit ;)
My sister is in the center, of course, as Megan which fits because both are blonde. She's surrounded by Spike, two bushwoolies, the princess ponies and by myself (dressed as Megan's younger sister Molly).
Next to my sister is the princess pony Royal Blue (the blue pony with the red hair) because she always said back then that this was her favourite princess pony.

The environment is suppoused to look like the original from the episodes, including the castle. However, I upgraded the castle a little bit.

The total Package(s)! by Tabascofanatikerin
The total Package(s)!
My good friend :iconzwerg-im-bikini: has her birthday today. So, as the tradition goes, I sent her a little package including a drawing which is this one.

It's mostly based on the fact that she moved into another flat with her husband after ten years. It surely was a pleasant event as the flat is bigger and the area where it is seems to be great.
The moving process might be over in the meantime but hey, if nothing reminds her of this event in the future, then my drawing does ;)
So there are two great things to celebrate: The new home and her birthday.

From left to right: me, her husband and :iconzwerg-im-bikini: herself.

Drawn with pencil and coloured pencils.
Bing Bong by Tabascofanatikerin
Bing Bong
I was in the mood of doing a quick acrylic painting of Bing Bong, a character of the latest Pixar movie "Inside Out". I saw it about three or four weeks ago. I enjoyed it very much and Bing Bong was also one of the reasons if not one of the main reasons. :aww:

Painted with acrylics.
Princess Dress Collaboration: Princess Iron Mouse by Tabascofanatikerin
Princess Dress Collaboration: Princess Iron Mouse
This is my entry for the "Princess Dress Collaboration" of the group :iconsailorsenshi:.

I did this for fun and also since I found it interesting enough to dress up a not-so-popular character (there are not only the main characters and villains listed but
also a lot of side characters and minor sailor senshis). So I chose Sailor Iron Mouse from the last season of "Sailor Moon".
Sailor Iron Mouse is shown as a character that was turned evil by Sailor Galaxia (who also is her boss). Iron Mouse is part of a team of "Sailor Animamates". She is
childlike and a bit crazy, I think. However, in the anime as well in the manga versions, she gets killed.

I intentionally did not seek out my favourite character or something out of the list, I'd rather wanted to be challenged. So I chose one of the minor Sailor senshi and
gave her a princess dress.
It was not easy since there's really no information on if there's an own culture or home of Sailor Iron Mouse as a reference.
I chose white as the major colour since her Sailor senshi dress is already pretty much white and I created a cloak-like dress since I think this wouldn't look bad and it
would be something different apart from standard sexy dresses or fairytale dresses. After all, in many cultures royal dresses should cover the body in a decent way. I
thought maybe this would quite cool if Iron Mouse would go to a dinner or something dressed like that. Also, I didn't want to draw her especially sexy since she seems to
be clearly underage.

Made with pencil, colour pencils (Iron Mouse), water colours and Adobe Photohop (background & little effects).
Operation Christmas Child 2015 by Tabascofanatikerin
Operation Christmas Child 2015
It's that time of the year again :)

I think you've already heard of the project "Operation Christmas Child". It is a project that has been going on for many years now and it's about packing shoe boxes full
of gifts for poor children in poor countries (like countries in East Europe, Haiti or Kenya) for christmas. Where I live and where I come from the same project is called
"Weihnachten im Schuhkarton" (Christmas in a shoe box).

Like last year I packed two shoe boxes. This year they're for two boys (one between 5 to 9 years and one between 10 to 14 years).

This is what I packed this year.

Boy aged 5-9 years (top)

1 pair of gloves, 1 wool cap, 3 knee-lengths socks, 1 stuffed white tiger, 1 bouncy ball, 1 toy police car, 1 Yo-yo, 1 wooden maze, 1 mini puzzle, 3 chocolate bars, 1
big lollipop, 4 small lollipops, 1 bag of fruit candies, 1 pack of grape sugar (orange), 1 washcloth, 1 toothbrush, 2 toothpaste tubes, 1 comb, 1 small can of Nivea skn
cream, 3 different notebooks to write/draw in, 1 ruler, 1 eraser, 1 sharpener, 1 ballpoint pen, 3 pencils, 1 set of coloured pencils, 1 acrylic picture (with photo and
greetings on the back)

Boy aged 10-14 years (bottom)

1 pair of gloves, 1 wool cap, 3 knee-lengths socks, 1 skipping rope, 1 rubik's cube key ring, 1 cardgame "Uno", 1  mini puzzle, 3 chocolate bars, 1 bag of fruit candies,
1 pack of grape sugar (currant), 1 big lollipop, 4 small lollipops, 1 washcloth, 1 toothbrush, 2 toothpaste tubes, 1 comb, 1 small can of Nivea skin cream, 3 different
notebooks to write/draw in, 1 ruler, 1 triangle ruler, 1 set of fineliners, 1 eraser, 1 sharpener, 3 pencils, 1 acrylic picture (with photo and greetings on the back)

Again I'm quite happy with the boxes and I think it's the first time this year that a few more items like skin cream and certain card games are allowed as well. However, this time I tried to
find one scarf for each box again and couldn't find any that wasn't way too expensive (on the other hand I don't wanna buy way too cheap clothes, either. Who knows under
what conditions they were made?). So I had to give up the scarves this year but I sincerely hope to get some next year again.
Right now I'm in my lazy, vacation mood, slurping tea and still asking me one question whenever I check my DA feeds:

How the hell can you produce one masterpiece after another in such short times?
How can you draw or paint that fast that you still manage to produce great artworks?

Usually I wouldn't claim that a fast artist is a good artist. But I can't restist comparing myself to others and it's kinda confusing, amazing and frustrating at the same time to realize that other artists can create more and better pictures in only a few days while I already need a phase to put a freaking piece of paper in my hand, sacrifice a good portion of time to create an artwork that mostly sucks in the end (even though I tried hard). 

Then I think it must be some kind of education. Maybe the artists producing fast AND well have studied art in colleges or universities, thus have also learned to work fast. Is that so? In my case, as you can tell, I never had the opportunity to visit a college or an university.

If it just was for self pity I would't post this journal. But I keep asking me this over and over again and maybe YOU can give me a good, reasonable answer. In that case: Thank you in advance!

Now, back to my vacation which will hopefully bring SOME creative stuff. After all, I have more time now.

  • Reading: Blog "Grickle Things"
  • Watching: Nothing at the moment
