Prince Charming is a stock character who appears in a number of fairy tales. He is the prince who comes to the rescue of the damsel in distress. This character is often handsome and romantic, a foil to the heroine, and are seldom deeply characterized, or even distinguishable from other such men who marry the heroine. "Prince Charming" is also used as a term to refer to the idealized man some people dream of as a future spouse. Five of my cousins got engaged this year! Five!!! Three of them found their prince charming and two of them are princes! :) Congratulations to you all! I love you.
Hey! What do you think of this beautiful lady? Ready for the royal ball?? This is actually an old character we designed for a video promo. What colour do you think her hair should be? We still havent decided. :)

It's snowing!! or it was snowing when we started doing this digital painting but now it's stopped. Buuuuuut we're up and running again. Yianni is working but still drawing, Im studying and working but would like to keep drawing so there you go, we're going to try and keep up. Did you slip and fall on your butts yet? I've seen a couple people so far.
Goodmorning everyone! Havent had time to paint or digital-paint for a while. We're both really busy with work etc. I'm in Cyprus now and its nice and sunny and beautiful and wherever I go there are bloomed flowers and butterflies!! Enjoy it while it's still spring because come June- expect drought and dried leaves. :)
Valentine's day is a day where people are suppose to celebrate love... BUT people buy chocolates, flowers, teddy bears, sexy lingerie la lala lalalala lalal lal la
The primary motive behind Valentines is MONEY. And plenty of it! Hallmark is cleverly cashing in on the sales of Valentines Day greeting cards. The same with people who sell flowers, candy and cute cuddly bears. Society forces you to feel obligated to celebrate a day which alienates half the population and puts the other half in financial stress... People now expect gifts to be exchanged in a Valentine’s ritual. Giving gifts to make someone feel special should have personal motives- motives of honestly trying to make that person feel good, not a commercialized ritual which society expects.... When it comes down to it Valentines is a overrated capitalistic invention by Hallmark to make money..
So happy unimaginative, consumer-oriented and entirely arbitrary, manipulative and shallow interpretation of romance day everybody!!!!
Its valentine's day today!! A lot of people organise activities especially for this day, whether it's a romantic dinner, a trip or even a party, there's a whole host of events taking place everywhere... Who doesn't like a little romance? It's a day where you're supposed to celebrate love................. ... ........ ....
We've been asked to design the Carnival Party Invitations for Rotaract Famagusta.... After a few changes this was the outcome.. What do you think? If you want invitations for the carnival, mardi gras invitations, birthday party invitations.. let us know :)
Have you seen Walk off the Earth's cover of Somebody that I used to know by Gotye, played on one guitar? I can't stop playing this video. And the combination of voices is great. It's amazing how many sounds they get simultaneously out of one guitar.
I felt like drawing the bearded guy (Mike Taylor) on the right.. i think his performance in the clip was awesome:P The whole group is pretty cool.. might draw the other members soon... we'll keep you posted.
Hey there! It snowed last night.. and then snowed some more.. and some more... it's the first time since we're in the UK that we live in a place with a backyard.. so we had our own private batch of snoooow!
We completed a new Villa Emba promo... We were on a tight schedule so we decided to make it in a form of an animatic. Mostly still images and animated subtle movement with the puppet tool (After Effects). Their theme is Royal Palace and it's for the New Year's Eve party at Oxo Hall in Limassol. Here is the frog that features in the clip. Will be posting a few more images in the following days along with the video clip.. Keep an eye out for the hot princess.
Alright everyone, so we've got a new project and everyone can get involved.. ok. so here's what we've got:
Stephen Lynch, who is an amaaaaazing singing stand up comedian has a song that goes something like this:
If I could be a Superhero
I would be Awesome Man.
I'd fly around the world fighting crime
According to my Awesome Plan.
And if I saw criminals trying to lie,
Hurting other people and making them cry
I'd haul them off to jail in my Awesome Van.
Because I would be Awesome Man
If you want to hear it as well go to the link below.
right. so thats an idea for the project
now, we've got our own superhero...... his name is Shopper Man, and this is his little poem...
If I could make up a Superhero
It would be Shopper man
He’d walk around with all the women
To find Gucci bags from Japan
And if my girlfriend asked me to shop
I’d call Shopper man to shop till she drops
I wouldn’t have to kill her with a frying pan
Because I would have Shopper Man
Sooooooooooooo, want your own??? Tell us your own version of a superhero following the guidelines below.
When this superhero would be needed:
Post your descriptions on our One and a Half page!!!!!!!
Social networking can be a good means for business, marketing and communication. I accept and embrace this. What i don't understand is the public logging and posting of everyday routine and actions, your whereabouts, and your interactions. I find posts like "Jo is having burgers with Bill, while they're playing footsie at McDonald's Soho, London" or "Just got my payslip and will be walking to the bank in half an hour to deposit it", incredibly stupid. Got no problem with Jo and Bill and their footsie, or that you got your payslip - unless you owe me money - but who the f**k cares?? Maybe robbers, rapists and killers.. that's who! So maybe you'll get a few likes from a few no-lifers that you probably interact with them only through FB or Tweeter. Or maybe your friend who is sitting right next to you and that's even more annoying, since he's freaking sitting RIGHT NEXT TO YOU!
It's recommended to think before you speak... well.. it was recommended.. now people don't really talk so that's not an issue. So now its probably best to say: THINK BEFORE YOU POST!
Some of these examples might be extreme, but I've seen similar in the past and I'm sure you have too.
Στρουθοκαμηλισμός = Τρόπος συμπεριφοράς που αναφέρεται στο εξής παράδοξο: παρότι κάποιος βλέπει τον κίνδυνο, αντί να τον αντιμετωπίσει, προτιμά να κάνει ότι δεν υπάρχει, ελπίζοντας ενίοτε ότι το πρόβλημα θα λυθεί μόνο του.
Ostrichism = Way of conduct which is based on the following paradox: althoughone sees danger,rather thanconfronting it, one prefersto pretendit isn'tthere, hopingthat the problem willsolveitself.
