Sort of a similar idea to this:

Only this time the blinking effect isn't just a digital one. The picture can actually blink. Here's a gif:

Ghost Girls by Loonaki
Ghost Girls
The Ghost Girls are a pair of twin dolls I made last December (2013). They both took me only a solid week of work, mainly because they are simpler than Sophie and Daisy. The Ghost Girls only have some parts like forearms, hands, feet, neck and head made from polymer clay. The rest of the bodies are just wires and fabric.
Their hair is made from cut up fake hair extensions, which are glued to the head (as opposed to an actual removeable wig).
I also never made actual clothes for them, even though I did plan to. Maybe someday.

My dear dA community!

I keep neglecting you, I’m sorry. So what follows is a rather lengthy update on everything that’s been happening.

Firstly, a short synopsis of my life this year (so far): struggle with my job to the point of being really unhappy about it, generally struggling with everything else as well, ongoing artblock, a wonderful journey, finally realizing this can’t go on and quitting my shitty job, getting a new job that I will start next week that I hope to heavens will be better than the last one (though, it can really only get better, I just have “new-things-anxiety” about it).

 

So, but now to the exciting, meaning art-related, stuff:

52 Weeks Of Art Project going well

Despite my motivation to create not being insanely high, blame life, I managed to not give up on my 52 Weeks Of Art Project yet. I finally updated my dA-gallery with the things I made that are worth it (lots of them only made it to scraps, so you can check that out as well, if you like).

Ghost Girls

I made two new dolls. I actually made them last year… last December to be exact. And I have yet to post about them on deviantART because I initially didn’t take high quality pictures of them and they didn’t have their own clothes either. End of story is that they still don’t have their own clothes, which leads me to not taking good pictures, because what’s the point. BUT I will probably post about them soon anyway, just expect it to be lower quality photos than usual.

Hilde

My dear grand aunt passed away a few weeks ago, and from all her belongings my mom brought me back a beautiful old baby doll, I suspect her to be from around 1920-30 and I instantly fell in love with her (and called her Hilde). She was broken and very worn down, so I did my best to repair her. She’s been my main focus these past days and I will post about her in more detail soon as well.

 

And lastly

Ireland

Probably the best thing that happened to me this year was getting the opportunity to spend all of May in Ireland! Northern Ireland, to be exact… specifically in the beautiful town of Derry. I loved each and every second of this trip and I miss Derry a lot. Telling the whole story here would be way too long, just so much: It was a European work experience program my school offered, I went to Derry with 3 other people from my school (other students also went to London, Copenhagen or Istanbul), I stayed with a really sweet host family, I did work experience for 3 weeks, I had the nicest boss and coworkers ever, I visited as many places as I could manage in my free time and marveled at the beautiful countryside and city.

To keep all those memories together, I made a scrapbook and collected pictures and tickets and such. When we came back to Germany, everyone who took part in this work experience program had to hand in a project about their stay for a contest. What can I say… I won the contest. Here is the video I handed in along with the scrapbook:

 

 

 This was a stay I’m so glad I did and will never forget.

 

Thank you very much to everyone who keeps supporting me on here, even though I’m absent so much. I can only say, I will try to be more active, because I still really like deviantART and its community.

 

Thanks for reading,

Have a lovely rest of the week

Could you post a tutorial on how you take your hand drawn art and then digitalize it please. I just started college at this art school in Tennessee and i am not understanding some of their digital art classes.

All I do is scan my paintings, or photograph them (natural light is best!) and then digitally adjust lighting and contrast (you can use simple free software like GIMP for that). That's it, really. :] I hope that helps a little.

Quick question:
Are you going to the 2014 Connichi convention in Kassel, Germany?
