Please make sure to check the artist out and rate them!
…heh, this is late- very- very late-. Deep apologies Roma. Well. I guess my definition of beauty isn’t “looking” or being told your beautiful. But believing in yourself as who you are. ..I haven’t been able to do that since pre-school where i didn’t care who i was as long as i liked me. But now it’s just-…things have changed..and it’s sad that change came as a bad thing.— hmm, that’s a time consuming one to think about~~ But i love observing as in just looking quietly , thinking and studying the things around me. Especially the water and sky. It’s really cool how the clouds move across so delicately while we could be frozen. I love reading, But poems specifically.~ figuring out the meaning is like you’ve just discovered treasure~! Painting and anything related to art is another too~ I love water color the most and how is blends really smoothly. I also like charcoal and a lottt of different shaded color pencils ^^ — Mio dio, i wrote a lot! But im curious if we do have things in common~
*whispers* I also love pizza. #1 food and in elementary i used to take a whole tomato to lunch and just eat that ~ my friends made fun of it but i regret nothing, they’re so yummyyy
Don’t apologise, it’s ok girl. People have busy lives, i understand. And sometimes you just don’t feel like having any dealing with anybody at all, I sure as hell can relate to that.
I understand what you mean when things change when you get older. Because like when you’re a small kid and you fall when you try to walk or whatever people are really positive because you try and all. And even if you’re not as talented in one thing as other kids it doesn’t matter because there’s always things you are better at, right?
But then when you get older suddenly people like label things as being more important skills and then “the mistake” get’s introduced. Because before that there was no such thing. And then people tell you are stupid because you have difficulty in getting some things right. And then people just say you are useless alltogether and you stop trying eventually because you don’t want to give people a stick to hit you with anymore. You even stop doing the things you like and you’ll hate yourself for it too. Soo yeah… that about sums it up doesn’t it.
Ah, so you’re bit of the observer type. Do you also notice when things are out of place, and underlying emotion of people? I do that. I think it’s because my country changed so much and had so many flags that I sometimes didn’t understand, language-wise, that I focused on other signs to get what they’d try to say. By studying their body language, you know.
I love nature more than people sometimes. I still like to lie in the grass and watch ants and snails minding their own business. I once had an antfarm! It was the coolest thing ever but somebody broke it, on purpose, he was a total dick! Now I only look after a couple of colonies of bees. actually they aren’t mine, but of a elderly man in the neighborhood. I don’t read a lot. But I love stories. I like stories about fates the most. I like Italian stories but I also read from other countries. I ike audiobooks but a good storyteller is best!
I’m not that artistic really. I paint sometimes but I don’t like to show any of it because it sucks really bad. I also make many things like figures from aluminium foil and such. Silly little things. I paint in tempera and oilcolor but I like the last better because you can work in layers to cover up fuck ups.
Ah yeey pizza, it’s my favorite snack. But I get fat real easily. Seriously, if i just look at food i gain weight. I eat a hell lot of tomatoes, because they are low on calories. And even when i work out, muscles don’t show, it’s really laim. I kinda gave up on that too, I’m short also. God must really hate me.
So nice to see posts of Sara who is enjoying her Rome visit.
Enjoy your stay, pretty girl!!!
NOTE: It’s not allowed to bring pretty boys back home,
even IF they fit in your suitcase.
Castelluccio (Norcia) is a village in Umbria, in the Apennine Mountains of central Italy. It dates from the 13th century or slightly earlier, but was also settled by the Romans. The fields on the slopes below the village are cultivated; the town is known for its excellent lentils. In springtime, nature is in lavish colors, with red poppies and yellow rapeseed.
Roma no ;A; Don’t cry.
I case someone want to experiment what real terror is go here it’s in english.

There’s always space for yet another armor tutorial, right? (ﾉ´ヮ´)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
Note that the armor I drew would be worn around 15th century, the more into the future the less and less components knight’s armor had (i. e. in early 14th century instead of greaves a knight would wear long boots only; in 12th century knights didn’t wear plate breastplates and instead a chain mail only). Also the design of armor pattern changed by year and was different in every country (i.e. in eastern Europe armors, while still looking European, were heavily influenced by Turkey). so just make sure you always do research whenever drawing an armor. And one more thing to keep in mind is that armors were expensive, knights wearing a full plate armor weren’t an often sight.
Some links that may be useful:
- Armour Archive (I strongly suggest to browse its forum, there is no country or period of which armor wouldn’t be discussed)
- Therion Arms (armorer’s page; each accessory is photographed in big resolution and several time so it’s a nice page to use as reference for drawing)
- Revival Clothing (another store, but both with medieval clothing and armors; I suggest to read the articles, they’re often supported with pictures)
- Basic Armouring:A Practical Introduction to Armour Making (pdf)
- Educational Charts (pdf, shows how armors and weapons changed over the years)
- Medieval & Renaissance Material Culture (actual medieval resources, mostly paintings. And my favourite subpage - women in armor)
- Dressing in Steel (youtube; a demonstration how to dress in armor)
- How shall a man be armed? (youtube; another demonstration but with 4 different knights from different periods)
After the 1450’s joined hosen were used by most instead of the seperate type attached to the underwear. The joined hosen had a codpiece at front which was easier when you needed to pee. Because the hosen are attached to the jacket it’s quite a hassle to get out off your gear if you need to go. (I know this out experience)
Great tutorial! Nicely drawn too!
dayly reminder I am to sexy for my love, my shirt,…
Milan, New york, Japan,…
your party, disco dancing…
my car, my hat, my cat, this song.
Tumblr savior. Just google it, you’ll have to download it based on the browser you use but it’s worth it.

Denver-based photographer and art director Suzanne Heintz was fed up with people asking her when she was going to get married. From her mother’s direct plea, “Just pick somebody!” to others’ woeful sighs of pity, Heintz lived half her life wondering where she had gone wrong. After years of struggling to politely answer the question, she decided to procure the house, husband, and offspring everyone so desperately felt was the pathway to happiness. Purchasing a pair of second-hand mannequins, Heintz set about playing house to achieve the American Dream. From a Parisian holiday to Christmas cards of wildly escalating happiness, Life Once Removedis a sharp, witty critique on the archaic expectations of domestic bliss and fulfillment.
