Designer currently in Finland 🇫🇮
First time holding a baby bird!
Today's a nice wet day.
I am having so much fun with 3D these days! And I'm also learning a lot. This is a clock with the minutes arm stabbing an eyeball. Both are melting. I still have to texture it, but I'm actually kinda dreading that part...
Living under a bridge.
I went to the Pixar exhibition in Rome for its 30 Years of Animation. It was fun explaining animation to those who are not in the field and seeing them realize how much hard work it requires. Here's a video of something I feared would give me an epileptic attack.
Great last night in Rome before coming back to Helsinki. We went to my brother's Escape Room and it was a blast! Valerio wants to kill me for ruining his pose.
A drawing I made in class instead of listening.
So people like my mother and seeing me work / eat / chill by the fire / die in winter / when I was 17. Noice.

I think I'm done for the day #dead
What I look like vs what a chinese app wants me to look like. I used an app called Meitu. It has many different options to modify your face, but the main idea is "This is how your eyes should look. Decide how much". Through many sliders, I maximized the modifications. Thin lips, big eyes, slim chin, tiny pointy nose, no dark circles, no acne, whitened skin... I do think that technically it's a good app. But when I finished "fixing" myself, I basically saw what my mother always wanted to see on me... a pretty Isra if she did things right. If she exercised. If she ate less. If she used all the products the women in her life tried forcing her to use. Even since I was little I fought against their ideas. In the beginning it was due to laziness. I couldn't be bothered to take care of my skin and be beautiful. With time, I became disgusted by what society requested me to look like so I could be respected as a human being. So I forced myself to completely stop caring about my looks, as a silent form of protest. Despite all this and my mindset, I like the photo on the right. It is how I wish I looked. Not for others, but myself. For my self confidence which, whether I like it or not, it is slightly connected with my looks. With how I feel. But the thing is I don't have the physical or mental energy to do anything about it. I am too busy caring about my work, my mental health and the valuable friendships I have built with time. I wish I was born in another time when I'm not bombarded with ads with pretty women, when I don't have to go to pluz size shops to get pants that fit, when my worth isn't measured in race, centimeters or kilograms. Because, honestly, fuck that. I am so much more than dark skin and a number on a scale 🖕🏽
Material exercise from this morning that I am posting because THIS IS SO FREAKING CUTE!!
A blue 3D stone.
Pikku Kakkonen Game Jam photo in Yle, Tampere!
Throwback to when I was rolling around the studio in a mocap suit. One of the most fun things I've ever done!! Really wanna do it again ❤
My first Korean BBQ in a Chinese restaurant in Finland. Also my first KBBQ ever.
Team meeting was called off this morning, so I attempted a self-portrait. It was... weird. But in a positive way. Though I think the drawing itself isn't that good, this might be the first time I drew a "normal" girl. A "different" girl than the ones I usually draw, who are perfect in my mind. I have to admit, I don't dislike this girl I see now. Although it's not me, because DRAWING YOURSELF IS FREAKING HARD WHEN YOU KEEP LOOKING UP AND DOWN FROM MIRROR TO PAPER
Social media popularity rules claim that you should post once a day at the perfect time of the day. But I'm having fun. So here you have a redo of the previously made pixel acorn. Except now it's not pixel. Yay.
A test strawberry. First time drawing with graphic tablet. Super hard. Any feedback is appreciated.
I hate ink. How the hell does it work!?!?!?

A photo of my mother waiting for me at the bonsai garden. She would kill me if she knew I posted this pic. But she never will. Because she doesn't have Instagram. Heh.
Basic sea sunset photo to needlessly fill your Instagram feed.
Since it was announced that Rinoa is now a character in Final Fantasy Dissia NT, my inner child fangirl started emerging again. Here's a throwback to maybe one of the best years of my entire life.
Guys guys guys omg those of you who know me well know I like experimenting in the kitchen and this time I thought I would totally throw up or feel sick. BUT. BUUUUUUUUUUT. I took this pic thinking I would send it to my mother like "look at this disgusting mess are you proud of me" BUT IT WAS NICE!?!? Avocado cream with milk, salt and pepper. Tomatoes. Penne rigate. Microwaved leftover honey + soy sauce baked chicken. I guess it was nice because the avocado cream spread nicely all over the pasta and the chicken balanced it out. I'm talking as if I know what I am saying but I am no chef or food connoisseur I just like doing weird stuff. Maybe this isn't even weird but totally normal to others but IT IS WEIRD TO ME. LOVE IT.
