From Paris with Love by Juliette-Capulet From Paris with Love by Juliette-Capulet
So this took for absolutely ever!!! First I drew all the buildings and shaded them, then I took a photo of the drawing and put in on illustrator, I then proceeded to give it on a usb to my art teacher, who tried to print it in vinyl (sticker stuff) but it didn't work, so he tried again the next day and it did... He e-mailed me when it was finished and I was in english when I opened the e-mail and I jumped out of my feet in excitement and everybody was staring at me... Anyway when I got it, it was a big black sheet, so I had to peel of everything that now looks white... THAT TOOK FOREVER!!! I had the help of many friends thought and that helped... Then I stuck the sticker (yes I stuck the sticker...) on a clear piece of plastic and painted the girl with the umbrella on a piece of A3 white paper... *sigh* It is probably the longest taking art piece I have ever... created?

The buildings are the Notre Dame, The eiffel tower and the Sacre Coeur...

Awesome! :D Wish I could draw like that!


By the way my friend :icontherru97: wants to hold a contest and has started a donation pool. It would be really awesome if you were somehow able to help :D. If you don't have points spreading word bout it would be awesome! She is not very popular here, so I'm trying to help her. :)

I can't tell you how amazing this is Giu, there are just no words to explain, but I hope you know. It's seriously the most amazing thing - there is so much detail. I don't know how you did it. You are exceptionally talented girl!

(hey, hey! When I'm older - I'll be able to say I have three original Cattaneo's. How much money do you think I'll make? I may not have to work if I sell them, though I wouldn't do that. I'm keeping your work forever!)

THANKYOU! SO MUCH! Although I'm not sure I can agree with you on everything you said...
Hahaha, I don't think you should put so much faith in sketches :P
But then again have you seen some of Picasso's stuff?

Yes, exactly. You're a regular Picasso Giu. Don't deny it. Actually...you're a regular Cattaneo. Your stuff isn't anything like Picasso's, it's just...yours. Entirely. Until you go and copy a drawing I give you 'cause I'm desperate. But really Giu, you're always saying you don't have your own style, but you do. You just need to develop it.

I'm glad the effort paid off. This is wonderful work. Very nicely rendered. I also enjoy the way the perspective seems to begin normally at the top of the page, and how the buildings seem to...it's almost like they slid down a little to make the perspective work.

All in all, I really enjoy it.

Thank you! Yeah, I tried to play with the perspective a bit, because I've never tried before.

Good god. I want to go to your place just to… look at this! Honestly. This is stunning. The colours, the girl, THOSE BUILDINGS. Everything about this is splendid (Paris is indeed splendid... (<-- the name of one of France's character songs. :P)), and I could simply gaze at it for hours.

Wow.
Gorgeous. Beautiful.
Stunning.

Call me when you're not inundated in homework sometime. I'd call you, but I'm terrible at picking a time when you AREN'T snowed under in essays. ^^;

I should get you and Ruby to come over some time soon! We could do a movie marathon or something?
Thank you :tighthug:, you know your comments always make me feel so much better than I really am?
I'll call you this weekend! I have lots to talk about, and I'm sure you do too, my parents were always amused when you called, because we would stay on the phone for hours...

Anyways I'm sure you're more snowed under than me, I only go back to school on tuesday next week :P sucks to be you right? (that is really meant to be read in the most sarcastic way possible!)

love you

Do, do~ I miss you so goddamned much. Movie marathon sounds great. So long as that marathon involves 'Paint it White'. Because that is the best anime movie EVER (it's Hetalia, and Prussia is in it briefly, how could it not be awesome?).

AWWW. YOU ARE SO SWEET. And =_= what on earth are you doing asleep on a Sunday afternoon? I kid, I kid, I just find it amusing that I, notorious sleeper-in-erer, was up at 8:00, and you, miss awesomepants-active-snuffluffagus (<-- whut), is snoozing~ I HOPE YOU AREN'T SICK. <3

Waah~ You and your private school-ness. Getting a week more hols than me. =_= Love you too~
