Hey lovelies! It’d mean a lot if you would go and rate my designs a ‘5’ over at the Marvel Villain T-Shirt Design competition! :D Click each of the pictures to go to their respective links!



If you only have time to vote for one, please vote for my Art Nouveau design :D

Only a couple of days left, so every vote counts!! :D Thank you so much!! xx OH. And here's the Tumblr link if you would be so kind as to reblog! :D

I don't think I'm really in the running, but Tom Hiddleston will see my Loki art, and that makes me squee :D

Hope you're all doing well! x

Peace,
Rotae

Guff: empty or foolish talk; nonsense

Pretty cool, right?

I have hiccoughs D: The perils of living alone! LOL.

Peace,

Billets-doux: a love letter

DETERMINED TO UPDATE MORE. YES.

There's this new pizza place opened up in my suburb called Pizza Capers. I had it last night. And OMFG I COULD EAT IT FOREVER.

I got an equivalent Pizza Hut Meat Lovers (called a Bonanza), and it was SO AMAZING. The ingredients were the quality that I'd expect from making one myself - probably better - and the crust was just MMMMMMMMMMMM crispy in all the right places!

It's also the first time I've regretted not buying garlic bread, because when I inspected their menu after the fact, they had one with BASIL PESTO AND MOZZARELLA. HOLY CRAP. HOW AWESOME DOES THAT SOUND?! And they have Gelato in flavours that include Peanut Butter & Hazel Fudge, and Pear & White Chocolate Sauce Calzonés. DAMN.

UGH. This post brought to you by the, "Seriously Considering Going Back Tomorrow" club.

Also, I have completely fallen for Tom Hiddleston (contain your surprise, people!!). It feels like a slow, sinking, melty, drowning death filled with poetry.

Peace,
Rotae
Cheer me up, LJ?

Peace,

SO. Something exciting from me now :D

I have a unique opportunity guys: to design my own bookcase.

WHOA, right? And it's going to be HUGE. 3m W x 2m H x.3m D!! It's actually going to be an entertainment cabinet as well, but I only have a 32" tv, so it shouldn't take up much room (plus an excuse to buy a Bluray player to go with my Apple TV :D).

But basically, I'm thinking it'll be split into three sections, with the tv in the middle and bookshelves all around it. AND. ON TOP. OMFG YOU GUYS ON TOP.

I AM GOING TO HAVE HOGWARTS.

OH YEAH. I'm going to design a sillhouette of Hogwarts for the crown (possibly something like this actually), which happened to just pop-up on my flist today! LOL). And then I'm going to paint,

'Whether it's by page or screen, Hogwarts will always welcome you home.' - J.K Rowling

GET IT? BECAUSE IT'S A BOOKSHELF AND A FILM SPACE. I AM SO FUCKING EXCITED. A;SLDKFJA;LSDKJF;ALKSJDF;LAKJSD;FLKJASDF

SO. I'm still in the beginning stages of design: do you guys have an awesome bookcase/entertainment unit? Or have you seen one? Like I said; it's a rare opportunity, so I want to make the most of it with AWESOME IDEAS :D

I also have some NEW ART for you guys!! WOO! I have some catching up to do here actually, but I finished this the other day and I think you'll like it :D


SO. I'm hoping to kinda do a "development" of the Next Gen trio and this is First Year Or, more specifically, the summer holidays between First and Second Year

Have I ever mentioned that I imagine Scorpius being really short for a long time, with Rose - in particular - towering over him? LOL. Don't worry, he'll catch up around Sixth Year But they end up basically the same height (both quite tall).

I really thought about their body types here a lot, actually. I see Rose having the same body type as her dad - tall and slender. Al as having the same body type as his mum (and possibly his dad if he hadn't grown up in a cupboard for 11 years, LOL) - average height and boarding on athletic. Scorpius I see quite like Draco, but being smaller for longer but then actually ending up a little taller

In this picture I see Rose coming up with an idea to do something they're not really supposed to be doing, Al agreeing, and Scorpius being reassured that it's not a big deal and it'll be fine XD

Hope you like! :D

How've you all been? :D

GAH. I am back at school and so are the kids D: LOL.

It's good to know that a lot of you are still here!! YAY!! :D I didn't actually know that until just now because I didn't receive notification of your comments to my last post O.o I'll have to check up on that!

Thank you to everyone who sent me a heart for Valentine's Day!! <3 <3 <3s to karaz, tattooedsappho, bitchet, pixycat, vaguelyclear and comedychick!! :D

SO. I am nervous today because we have to give a talk about our subjects (Art and Media for me this year, with maybe a smattering of Music and Maths), and I'm still trying to figure out wtf I'm doing this year XD My timetable got changed so much in the last two days, that I'm having trouble keeping it all in my head for the first time!! LOL.

I can't start Media until we get software, which I THOUGHT we were getting last year :/ So that's a bit shit, but on the bright side: my Art budget is almost three times what it was last year, and I have a quite large budget for Media too!! The rest of the school got its funding SLASHED, but the Arts are actually doing better :| (First time in the history of ANYTHING that that's happened! LOL). Our Principal was a Music teacher, so she knows the power of the Arts in regards to engagment etc.

HMM. Something else I did recently - that I don't THINK I posted about here - was I created some Tom Felton/Felton and Rupert Grint tshirts and iPhone cases! :D They can be found over at my RedBubble account :) I do personalised ones with usernames on them too :D They actually turn out really well! So let me know if you want to commission anything like that ever :D

ALSO...

Woo!! :D Thanks to the people who nominated me!! <3 <3 <3

I'm up for Best Humour Art - The Round Window, Best Romance Art - Pretty Little Eyes and Outstanding Next-Gen Het Artist! :D If you want to vote for me, you can do so here :)

I think that's it! Gotta go :)

Catch you on the flip side, and wish me luck with the students D: LOL. (I'll need it!!) Wearing my Hufflepuff shirt to produce good vibes XD

Also, it was 32 Celsius here today D:

Peace,
Rotae

Depone: to testify under oath; depose

SO. I am back from my AROUND THE WORLD TRIP OF AWESOME!! :D I had THE MOST AMAZING TIME OMFG. It was very Harry Potter-central, LOL. From Hogwarts, to seeing DanRad (TWICE!! And once I got to talk to him and give him a drawing!! AND go to my first film premiere!!) to King's Cross, to Scotland, to the Harry Potter Exhibition, to Whimsic Alley, to H_E friends, to Feltbeats friends... it was just Harry Potter OVERLOAD.

AND IT WAS AWESOME.

I cannot wait to go back to Hogwarts, guys. Seriously. I spent, like, FIVE DAYS THERE, and it was NOT ENOUGH. Clearly they should just employ me to be Helga Hufflepuff or something XD

I have a BAJILLION photos, which I will upload at some stage if you're interested :D

Whilst I was away I downloaded basically ALL of fernwithy's Teddy stories and have been WADING through them ever since XD I got them to read on the planes, but it's been a week and I'm still reading them XDDD THEY ARE ADDICTIVE. SO. I have lots of Teddy and Lupin/Tonks things on the brain at the moment, which I'm hoping will lead to drawings of some kind >.> :D

BUT FOR NOW. Take a look at this:


The drawing I did of Teddy Lupin here was based on an image of Ben Barnes, which I modified. Then I saw this guy. Holy crap. They are very similar… LOL. Slightly different jawline, and a tiny difference in the eyes, but DAMN. LOL.

That's kinda crazy! :D

That's all for tonight, I think. Going to try and be better at the updating thing (which is all I seem to say in my updates these days ^^;).

LET ME KNOW IF YOU'RE STILL OUT THERE - or have we all jumped ship? D:

Peace,
Rotae

DanRad

Hey guys!

I am currently in London! And I actually have the opportunity to cover the premiere of Daniel Radcliffe's new film The Woman in Black for Feltbeats.com!

As a consequence of this I may actually get the chance to ask Daniel Radcliffe a question or two in the press line!!

And I'm kind of stumbling! LOL. So does anyone have any good questions that they would like to be asked?

(Btw - I DID get to go to the SNL taping!! :D)

Peace,
Rotae

That awkward moment when you're going through audio of yourself talking to the Phelps twins and you relive the horror of realising that YES, you DID say, "I think I could tell you two apart in the dark now" and remembering what that must have SOUNDED LIKE OMFG D:

NOT A TWINCEST SHIPPER. I SWEAR.

But they did laugh very hard. So that makes me feel better XD

More tonight, I think :D

Peace,
Rotae

So... this happened yesterday :3333333333


Hee :3

The photo was taken by the lovely ryokophoenix, who was there as my Feltbeats.com photographer :D

So today, Tom Felton saves a puppy and takes it back - personally - to its owners, and Jamie Waylett gets charged with violent disorder, receiving stolen goods and being in possession of an article - understood to be a petrol bomb - with intent to destroy or damage property.

LOOK AT YOUR LIFE CHOICES, JAMIE. SERIOUSLY >:C

In other news... I have been sick for the last five and a half days :C I had to have two days off work, and I almost went home from work yesterday too. The rest of my time has mostly been spent sleeping and updating my iPhone/iPad to iOS5, LOL XD

At the moment I have a hacking cough, and runny nose and watery eyes :C And I think my sore throat is coming back too. I feel really bad, because I'm meant to have finished my art for the smrw_ficafest, but I literally do not have the energy. I haven't drawn anything in about a week!

BUT. I do have accommodation in New York!! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! :D A combination of an AWESOME apartment uptown (IT HAS ITS OWN GODDAMN TERRACE) and getting to stay with the epic sparkly_stuff!! <3 <3 <3 :D I can have up to two people extra in the apartment for no extra charge, so lemme know if you wanna crash or something! :D [Also, the person who owns it has the last name of KAHHHHHHHHHHHHHN! So, I was super excited XD]

At the moment I'm hoping to catch up with: sparkly_stuff (obviously, LOL), masterofmystery, gryffinclaw, elohisa and raine_waver170! :D I haven't heard from any other NY peeps, so I dunno if you're around or whether you want to meet up! If you do, please let me know! <3 <3 <3

I have been doing some random graphic things over the past few months for hogwarts_elite (i.e. the website that got me my first job in graphic design - yes, seriously) and I've really liked some of them! :D

We were given five keywords for five icons. I didn't place, but I really LOVED my icons (especially the close-up one), so IDEC XD

Duel, Colour, Close-Up, Faceless and Trio:

I also didn't place for this one (I didn't see that we had the theme of "Darkness/Death Eaters" to incorporate into it, LMAO XD YES. Even during voting. I was like, "Wow, there's a lot of Death Eater stuff here O.o WEIRD!" XDDD *HEADDESKS*), but I LOVE IT SO MUCH OMFG. And I LOVED the challenge! :D We had to do a "minimalist banner" for ANYTHING related to HP :D

See? It works on two levels, because he was accepted to Hogwarts AND it was the first time he was accepted by friends! I WISH I HAD READ THE PROMPT! LOL XD The irony of all of this was I DID do a Voldemort one first... *FACEPALMS* XD

This one was for the prompt Light/Order of the Phoenix, and admittedly I did take this prompt a bit... how did Noah put it? Uh... LIBERALLY XDDD But it was a stick figure challenge and I really enjoyed it XD


LOL XD This was actually based on a conversation I had with some students at work, believe it or not... ^^; LOL. If you can't read my writing:
Draco: I can't tell if you're being faceitous or not...
Crabbe&Goyle: ...
Draco: Disingenuous.
Crabbe&Goyle: O_O o.o
Draco: MERLIN! I should just defect! I wonder if the goody-goodies are taking applications... might even have a decent conversation...

LOL. YES. I hope you enjoyed all that XD That's all I have at the moment. Off to do actual work now :C How are all y'all? :D

Peace,
Rotae
OKAY. So I'm trying to catch up on all the art I have to post here ^^; And today I thought I'd do my Tom Felton whip-around! :D I have two portrait pieces and two LOL pieces and I hope you like them all! :D


This piece I did for Tom when I interviewed him the first time! (Or, what I thought would be my ONLY time ever meeting him, LOL.) I'm still not happy with his one from DH2 - it actually looked better in person, but I think I did something screwy to it when I scanned it oops - but I like the one from PS :D

And here's his reaction to it: (you can read the whole thing here :D)
Tom: Wow, I'm getting, I mean, that's made me really emotional! That's exceptional! It's ah- it's definitely the finest bit of um, fan art, or whatever you want to call it, that I've ever seen.
Rotae: Don't! You're getting me all teary now!
Tom: I'm serious! Seriously! That is absolutely amazing, and I promise you, I will treasure that. I would love to have that framed... in my downstairs toilet (laughs) [where he keeps his MTV Movie Award apparently...] and show everyone what I've been doing for the last ten years.

:333333333333333333333333333

AND. Here's the second one I did of him when I interviewed him the second time ^^; LOL. I LOVED doing this one because I had the whole holidays to do it and I could actually ENJOY it and take my time with it, whereas the first one I did during FULL TIME WORK and it was a little rushed, LOL.


I did this from DH2 because the other one had a still from DH1 as there wasn't any promotional material out for 2 at the time. So yeah :D

You can read his reaction to that one here if you feel so inclined :D

PHEW. Now for some silliness! XDDD This one is from DH2 and the INFAMOUS Voldemort hug XDDD


Anyone else think Bellatrix got the raw end of the deal in this scene? LMAO.

I MEAN, COME ON: the woman PINES after this guy, and after YEARS of literally SHOVING her away, the ONE TIME he decides to give the physical contact thing a go, he hugs DRACO?! SO NOT FAIR XDDD [HILARIOUS, but not fair ]

I am actually so happy with this, LMAO XD I mean, Voldemort looks WEIRD as anything, but then... you know... Voldemort DOES look weird! But I think that looks like Tom and HBC!

And FINALLY this morning, some Tupert love! XDDD


I'm blaming Tom Felton for this ENTIRELY. He keeps going on about Tupert and being a real cheeky bugger about it, so clearly he was asking for something like this! XDDD I mean, surely he's learnt from Drarry... XD

He and Rupert did a photoshoot for @bandofoutsiders, which was just awesome, silly stuff, which you should all check out here.

YEAH. Just some nonsense XD

Funnily enough, this is the first time I've drawn Rupert Grint, and I think I drew him much better than I drew Tom! LOL.

OH. And I did this tshirt design for Tom for his birthday XDDD


LOL XDDD Rupert rocked up to Tom's film premiere wearing an I <3 Tom Felton shirt and Tom wondered what he could do to return the favour, so I made him this XD

Hope you like all of them!! <3 Lemme know what you think! Off to do work now. Boo :C

Peace,
Rotae

Ravenclaw: see: WHUT.

YUP. I'm a Ravenclaw on Pottermore. WHAT THE HELL, JO?! THIS IS PUNISHMENT FOR LAUGHING AT buttfacemakani GETTING RAVENCLAW SECOND ON THAT QUIZ, ISN'T IT?!

On the one hand - OMG I HAVE GONE THROUGH THE SITE AND THERE'S POTIONS AND DUELS AND OMGMCGONAGALLLLLLLLLL AND VERNONANDPETUNIAFLAIL AND A;LKDSJF;ALKS DJF;ALKDSJF;LKAJS;DLKFJ On the other... HOW THE HELL AM I NOT IN HUFFLEPUFF?! So, all in all, I feel like this:


Because OMG I AM IN and so many awesome DESERVING peeps haven't got in yet (so I feel like a spoilt child)... but... RAVENCLAW?! WTAF. LOL XD

And Mel, who is like, the least Slytherin person I know got Slytherin!!! WTF.

ANYWAY. NOW. About the awesome stuff: MY WAND. OMG YOU GUYS. MY WAND. IT'S SO LOVELEHHHHHHH.

10 3/4 in, Hornbeam, Phoenix Feather, pliant:

Hornbeam: My (Ollivander's) own wand is made of hornbeam, and so it is with all due modesty that I state that hornbeam selects for its life mate the talented witch or wizard with a single, pure passion, which some might call obsession (though I prefer the term ‘vision’), which will almost always be realised. Hornbeam wands adapt more quickly than almost any other to their owner’s style of magic, and will become so personalised, so quickly, that other people will find them extremely difficult to use even for the most simple of spells. Hornbeam wands likewise absorb their owner’s code of honour, whatever that might be, and will refuse to perform acts - whether for good or ill - that do not tally with their master’s principles. A particularly fine-tuned and sentient wand.

Phoenix Feather:This is the rarest core type. Phoenix feathers are capable of the greatest range of magic, though they may take longer than either unicorn or dragon cores to reveal this. They show the most initiative, sometimes acting of their own accord, a quality that many witches and wizards dislike. Phoenix feather wands are always the pickiest when it comes to potential owners, for the creature from which they are taken is one of the most independent and detached in the world. These wands are the hardest to tame and to personalise, and their allegiance is usually hard won.

I find it interesting that I have a wood that adapts so quickly to its wonder and a core that's hardest to tame! VERRRRRRRY INTERESTING. I wonder what it says about me! LOL XD ALSO. LOL. 'OBSESSION' HEE :3 HOW DID YOU KNOW, JO?! XDDD

Peace,
Rotae
WHOA. Two updates in a day?! WTF. YES. I'm trying to get back into the posting thing. And I'm also procrastinating, because I need to write my 9/10 reports and IDUNWANNA XD

I hope you like my new icon XD It's from one of my recent pieces, and I enjoyed it so much I iconed it XDDD Bella making this face - >:C LAWL.

I have an Art post to do that's going to be SUPERLONGLIKEWHOA (seriously, like 14 pieces or something insane like that), but I'm just going to leave you with my latest one for now :D The reason for this is that Rose's outfit is completely put together by bitchet, and I don't think she's seen it yet!


Scorpius and Rose in Ravenclaw Tower at Hogwarts! :D

Rose's clothes are by bitchet, who put together an awesome sort of shopping list for all things Rose and I got inspired! Scorpius' clothes (and his pose) are all based on/inspired by Tom Felton, LOL, which seems fairly appropriate... XD (LOL. Loafers ftw.)

AND. applespicy is having a "Which ASOIAF character do I most remind you of?" meme and I AM SO INTERESTED OMG. I'm 75 pages into book 3, so feel free to leave me a character that we learn more about in later books, but please leave true spoilers out :D My thread is here!

Speaking of A Song of Ice and Fire, I made the following for sorting at hogwarts_elite:


WINTER BE COMING, WITCH! XDDD I'm actually thinking of making this into a tshirt... XD OH. And having read A Clash of Kings, I think I've come to the decision that Draco is much more like Theon Greyjoy than he is Joffrey Barratheon. Those who have read all the books: do you agree? :D

These icons are ones I did for hogwarts_elite :D LOL. YOU GUYS SO DIDN'T KNOW THESE WERE MINE, RIGHT? XDDD


And finally in graphicy news, I made a banner for DanRadcliffe.co.uk! So go and check that out if you have the time! So stoked to have done it! Now I have a Tom AND Dan site on my résumé! XDDD The irony of all this is, of course, that I actually don't ship Drarry in the slightest XDDD LOL. Cept due to these pictures, I'm seriously shipping Matt Lewis/Tom Felton... LOL.


I mean, look at where Matt's hands are O________________o OH YEAH. LOL XDDD ADORKABLE AND SERIOUSLY HOT.

Whoa. This post ended up huge! XD I REALLY wanna know what you guys think about the ASOIAF character meme though - so please do that if you get the chance.

Congrats if you got through all that flailing XD

Peace,
Rotae

Mundify: to purge or purify

teaberryblue creates little Wordles of the applicant's writing for hogwarts_elite, and I wondered what mine would have come out like (FIVE YEARS AGO OMG) XD Click the pic for slightly bigger :D



I think this makes me look fairly Ravenclaw, actually O.o LOL. I like the part that goes: favourite people Potter character always XD


Back to writing reports :(

Peace,
Rotae

Tags:

So mistressmaybe, lady_dae, Brody and I just saw Rise of the Planet of the Apes and we had a bet as to when Tom Felton would die (because he's basically like, the reason there's an uprising, so we thought it a safe bet that he was going to be the first one killed)...

CUT FOR RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES SPOILERSCollapse )

Peace,
Rotae
