Sometimes I look at old pictures and I think- who was that girl? That girl on the left was sad. I used to lay in bed and cry.. I wanted so much more out of my life and my weight was truly holding me back from being happy. I never imagined being where I am today. I used to make every excuse as to why I was over weight- you know the “I’m big boned” or “my body was meant to be this size” all of which is total bullshit- but at the time I totally believed it! I had no idea what my body really looked like under all those pounds- 130 to be exact! Now it’s hard for me to look I the mirror and see what the rest of the world sees. Obviously I know I’m no longer “fat” but I also don’t see myself as “thin.” Sometimes I feel like a whale- how is that even possible? Extreme weight loss is a total mind fuck. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I just hope you know- if you’re that girl on the left- you are brave, you are capable, you are significant- and you can accomplish anything 💕

We often go with Kana to used books stores to find interesting materials. Last time I bought an old album about Japanese bridges and found in it one that I know pretty well - The Full Moon Bridge in the Koishikawa Korakuen Japanese garden. I go there to paint often because it’s one of the few gardens that don’t mind if you use a tripod (or two).

I did this picture during a pretty long session (about 5 hours). I first made a really basic sketch in 2H pencil and then painted with my Schmincke set. The foliage proved to be really difficult to paint in this style with just watercolours so I used some white poster colour paint (NIKKER brand) and mixing it with the watercolours added some details.

The light kept changing drastically because of fast moving clouds and I got rained upon halfway through the painting. I managed to finish it somehow just before a huge storm approached.  

Technical stuff:

  • Medium: HOLBEIN saunders WATER FORD natural 300g/m2 cold pressed F4
  • Sketch:  Mitsu-bishi Hi-Uni pencil 2H
  • Colours: My Schmincke 48 colours watercolours set
  • White details: NICKER poster colour

面白い資料を探しによく古本屋へ行きます。最近手に入れた日本の有名な橋が載っている写真集で、よく知っている橋をみつけました。絵描きに三脚を使える、小石川後楽園にある円月橋。

長いセッション(5時間)の間でこの橋を描いてみました。かなり固い2Hの鉛筆で軽いスケッチを描いた上で、シュミンケの水彩で着色しました。葉っぱが多すぎて、こんなスタイルだと水彩だけでは足りなかったので白いポスターカラーも使いました。

描いている途中で雨に降られて、雲の流れが早く光もすごいペースで変わっていました。大方描き終わった時に嵐が来たので、今回は本当にぎりきりでした。

Hi, I’m Sasha and this is my journey to reinvent myself. Of course, it was only about weightloss at first. But through time I realised this is me, my health, my body, my decisions and my life. Which is the one and only I have.
Also without your support guys I won’t find motivation, tumblr society helps a lot!

Okay but have you considered...

…. an abs reveal?

Imagine if Chat ad Ladybug started being super aware of each other’s muscles because they always end up on top of each other or in super close quarters/tied together during fights. Now picture Adrien and Marinette ending on top of each other (maybe in gym class) and there’s a sudden realization

I know these abs
