IF - superstition

where i lived, there's some kind of a belief that when a certain birds called "sit-uncuing" (in my mother language, that is) making noise for days/weeks around some people's place, it's believed that someone is going to die. i'm not a superstitious person, but this thing was happened when my late father passed away two years ago. for like two months the air was heavy by the birds' singing. after my father died, the noise was gone.

IF - scale

i've been wanting to make Tarot card theme for IF's topics since last month, and have been waiting for the right topic all along. finally, this week's challenge seems really fit for that. so here it is, a major arcana, 'Justice'. only i didn't want to make it spooky-full-of -symbols tarot kind of way, i chose the silly kind of card. :D

and here's another sausages for those of you who had left comments on my last post: you have really made my week! (pssh, they are sleeping now.) ^_^

IF - hats

here i played a little with my paint and brushes. boy, its really took some courage to do this, as i always worked kind of tidy with my previous works. but it is something that i have to do. to learn new styles.

from a movie scene

a doodle inspired by a scene in an Iranian children movie. its about a little boy who lives with his grandma and his pet bird. a very sweet movie.

in case you're wondering, the writing's said: "but grandma, i want to feed the bird!"

the eight facts

ok gina i'm going to do the tag here and not on my multiply.... and here the eight facts.
1. i'm an extrasensitive person. i can sense other people's emotion, what's or what's not going on in the air, what's implied from someone's sentences, just from the smallest gesture. or so i think...
2. i don't keep many memories. i tend to forgot things. or maybe i just being careless.. :p
3. you can say i'm a bit cheap but i don't like giving away money to street 'musicians' who don't deserves it. well, the word 'musicians' here is somewhat overrated, because, here, those people are just street people who trade their voices for money, which most of the times, are not melodious.
4. i like to observe things visually.
5. i'm analytical.
6. i pay too much attention on details. feels like i always have to get full explanation for everything.
7. i like chocolates and meat dumplings. and fried rice.
8. i like to read in the bathroom too... :D
i'm not going to tag anyone, though, gina... yeah, i'm a bad player...hehehee

The Grandeur

Surely We revealed it on the grand night.
And what will make you comprehend what the grand night?
The grand night is better than a thousand months.
The angels and Gabriel descend in it by the permission of their Lord for every affair.
Peace! it is till the break of the morning.

Swap Cards

Eugenia gina and I swap each other cards, inspired by other artists with their ATCs (Artist Trading Cards).

Below is what i got from her, with cute characters of Linny lizard and Cc the cat greeting each other. :)

and below is what i sent for her.

this is just as fun as the portrait exchange! :)

the portrait exchange

i just did a portrait exchange with the talented Ammon Perry. Reasons are, one, i want to challenge myself to do portraits again and two, because i like his unique arts. We traded photos a couple weeks ago and then draw each other.

this is his interpretation of my portrait. how funny! look at my face...! that nose is surely a fact. :D

and this is my interpretation of him. me, being too serious. glad he liked it though.
all in all, this is quite fun! :)
