Gecko Girl -- WIP by oomizuao Gecko Girl -- WIP by oomizuao
A sketch I did just now, inspired by several things. The haircut is a type of haircut that I'd really like to have, and the leopard gecko is a pet I'd love to have if keeping reptiles as pets was legalized in Norway, and her rose tattoo is inspired by my visit to Attitude Tattoo Studio in Oslo yesterday (which is the same studio where I got my wolf tattoo! The more you know.. ;p ). The piercings in her ear are there because reasons... :p

So, myep.. Work In Progress. I really want to add some line art and colors to this, but I don't have the time this week, I think.
Anyways, I hope you guys like it :)

This is absolutely gorgeous! I am so in love with your style, it looks clean yet sketchy at the same time (how does that even work?..^^)
And leopard geckos are amazing! I have one myself, named Salazar <3 I hope that you can get one some day 'cause they are wonderful pets!

Much love from Denmark

You are now cursed. You must send this on or you will be killed. Tonight at 12:00am, by Bloody Mary. This is no joke. So don't think you can quickly get out of it and delete it now because Bloody Mary will come to you if you do not send this on. She will slit your throat and your wrists and pull your eyeballs out with a fork. And then hang your dead corpse in your bedroom cupboard or put you under your bed. What's your parents going to do when they find you dead? Won't be funny then, will it? Don't think this is a fake and it's all put on to scare you because your wrong, so very wrong. Want to hear of some of the sad, sad people who lost their lives or have been seriously hurt by this email?

CASE ONE -
Annalise [Surname Removed] :She got this email. Rubbish she thought. She deleted it. And now, Annalise dead.

CASE TWO -
Louise [Surname Removed]: She sent this to only 4 people and when she woke up in the morning her wrists had deep lacerations on each. Luckily there was no pain felt, though she is scarred for life.

CASE THREE -
Thomas [Surname Removed]: He sent this to 5 people. Big mistake. The night Thomas was lying in his bed watching T.V. The clock shows '12:01am'. The T.V misteriously flickered off and Thomas's bedroom lamp flashed on and off several times. It went pitch black, Thomas looked to the left of him and there she was, Bloody Mary standing in white rags. Blood everywhere with a knife in her hand then disappeared. The biggest fright of Thomas's life.

Warning... NEVER look in a mirror and repeat -'Bloody Mary.Bloody Mary.' Bloody Mary... I KILLED YOUR SON' Is it the end for you tonight! YOU ARE NOW CURSED

We strongly advise you to send this email on. It is seriously NO JOKE. We don't want to see another life wasted. ITS YOUR CHOICE... WANNA DIE TONIGHT? If you send this email to...

NO PEOPLE - You're going to die.

1-5 PEOPLE - You're going to either get hurt or get the biggest fright of your life.

5-15 PEOPLE - You will bring your family bad luck and someone close to you will die.

15 -25 OR MORE PEOPLE - You are safe from Bloody Mary

Rich tropical wonderland, so full of wonders we can't even count,
a kingdom of freedom, but we cannot see, possibilities, variation, but also dangers in the place;
learn to listen in- and outside, learn to see, learn to hear and no harm will come there near.
The wise do at first disguise, so to know later who they can stay with and who to let better at the side.

Leos are AWESOME, though only one of mine likes to sit on my shoulders for any length of time; the other likes to wander off down my back after a few minutes, in the hope of exploring the bedspread...and the floor, if I can't catch her before she makes it to the edge... _

A fantastic piece, here! Keep it up!

no traditional is not for all stuff made not digitally. you have the traditional folder under the fan art  section and  the traditional folder under the manga / anime section. The reach of manga / anime related artworks is far much higher than the traditional artworks. Traditional folder is for traditional artists (being regular illustration or fine arts) not for mangaka and manga illustrator

:iconoomizuao:
oomizuao Featured By Owner May 29, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
cool! :D and thanks a lot :hug:
As far as I know, they're illegal because Dyrebeskyttelsen (our animal welfare association thingy) thinks that if reptiles were legal, people would abuse and neglect their reptiles, or even dump them somewhere when they don't want them anymore. I personally think that's a weird thing to say, because if they were worried about that, keeping pets of any kind should be illegal..! Dogs and cats, rabbits, hamsters, fish, you name it - they all suffer the same type of abuse and neglect that they worry the reptiles are going to get, and our country isn't doing anything at all to prevent that. Heck, we don't even have animal police...! So I think their reason for not legalizing reptiles is kind of a stupid excuse. They should worry about the welfare of all kinds of pets in our country instead.
Also, people do keep reptiles as pets in Norway. People 'smuggle' them from Sweden, or they breed the reptiles that are already in Norway and sell them to other reptile fans. And the reptiles are actually being taken well care of..! And when their owners feel they can't take good enough care of them for whatever reason, they sell them to people who do. But this is still illegal, the whole reptile thing, which I think is stupid. Seems to me that these illegal pets are being better cared for than our legal ones. :-/
So, in my opinion, if selling bunnies in pet stores to kids who have no idea how to care for one is legal, but letting people who go through a great deal to get a reptile, do their research and get the necessary equipment to properly care for one isn't legal at all, then I think we've got a serious problem...
I think the debate is about whether reptiles should be sold in pet stores or not. Personally, I don't think ANY pet should be sold in pet stores. Not even fish. Pets in pet stores are merchandise, that's all. Of course, some pet stores actually take good care of their animals, but I'd support good breeders or (and especially) adopting a pet before buying any from a pet store.

A little rant there, sorry :B  but yeah, reptiles are illegal. We're trying to legalize them, but so far we haven't had any luck.

That's such a weird law. Not only for the reason's you've already covered, but also considering that most reptiles in the pet trade are tropical species-- even if they did escape/were released, they probably wouldn't survive a Norwegian winter long enough to establish an invasive population.

What about arthropods as pets? Are they also illegal?
Reply
:iconoomizuao:
oomizuao Featured By Owner May 30, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
That's true, good point!

and arthropods are legal, yes. They're sold in pet stores. At least tarantulas and scorpions, I don't know what else as I haven't paid much attention to that aisle of the pet store to be honest. Arthropods freak me out... ^^;
