Hair studies for Volunta’s human version. I didn’t like the hair anymore I drew for her in the beginning.
I quickly decided to have Dutch actress and Playboy model Tatjana Simic as Volunta’s hair model. She has this wild hair I want Volunta to have. In the color red then.
Tatjana’s such a sexy woman. And lovely and inspiring too. At the age of 50 she posed for Playboy and she didn’t allow any use of photoshop in her pictures. And with photoshop I mean removing wrinkles, make her look slimmer and everything else to make her look younger.
(The photo here is used as reference for the doodle right below, which also made the breakthrough that Tatjana would become Volunta’s hair model)
The doodle left below is Volunta with the hair of Holli Would of the movie Cool World.
It’s a wild idea of mine that Volunta’s hair of her human form will change throughout the story, as reference to figures like Bulma of Dragonball and wear her hair in styles of famous cartoon ladies. All for the references.
I’m not sure about it yet. It’s an idea I’ll keep in mind. For now I’ll keep Tatjana as hair model.
the wwf’s living planet report 2014, which discovered that we’ve lost half of all the world’s wildlife in the past fourty years, showed more specifically that the population of common dormice dropped by 43 percent between 1993 and 2010.
not only are dormice vulnerable to habitat loss, but they’re hesitant to cross open fields, and the grubbing out of hedgerows in recent decades has removed the wildlife corridors between woods that has allowed the dormice to move more freely to new habitat.
dormice have very specialized diets of berries and nuts, and with less habitat they are unable to seek out enough food to fatten up before their six month hibernation (which was featured in these two posts).
I have to mention that these photos reminded me viscerally of a book I loved reading to my son when he was little. It was all about Sam Vole and how he wanted to go exploring on his own.
Thank you ^^
My thesis is approved to be turned in! And with plenty of time before the deadline.
But I’m not there yet. I also have to do a presentation about my thesis. It has an exact time limit. Not too short, not too long. And questions will be asked afterwards.

who’s sorry now
I do not agree with how the punishment is done, but I do agree this deserved (a soft) punishment. The boy was misbehaving and the mother was just standing there. If it was my kid, I would grab him and tell him “no, you don’t do that!”
