Artist Appreciation: Andrea Hrnjak | allonsykimberly.com

Artist Appreciation is a monthly segment where I feature an artist whose work I admire. This month’s artist is Andrea Hrnjak.

Andrea Hrnjak is an illustrator based in Vienna. Her artwork features animals, plants, and other elements of nature paired with beautiful, hauntingly ethereal women. The subjects, color palettes, and light strokes she uses in her art evoke a feeling of wildness and spirituality. Here a few of my favorites pieces by Andrea Hrnjak:

Casual Cosplay: Auron (Final Fantasy X)

September 23, 2014

Casual Cosplay: Auron (Final Fantasy X) | allonsykimberly.com

CLICK HERE FOR OUTFIT DETAILS

Ever since  my very first play through of Final Fantasy X (nearly eleven years ago!) Auron has been one of my favorite video game characters. Now, as I play through the HD remastered version of the game my admiration for him has been rekindled and I wanted to put together an outfit inspired by the mysterious, sword swinging, guardian.

This outfit is primarily composed of a faux leather top, to mimic Auron’s armored breastplate, and black leggings (but you could swap those out for black denim if you’re not a member of the Leggings as Pants Club). Even though Auron’s character and outfit are very masculine, I wanted this outfit to still have a feminine feel, so I opted for a soft floral print kimono cardigan to represent his Samurai robe. The charcoal scarf is meant to imitate his cowl and the belts and buckles on the boots mimic the belts on the sleeves of his robes. The katana earrings are homage to Auron’s weapon of choice and the blue nail polish adds a nice color contrast to the kimono while emulating the beads on his belt and the chain of his Saki jug. And last, but not least, a pair of sunglasses, because you can’t be Auron without a cool pair of shades.

October 2014 Desktop Calendar Wallpaper
(Free Download) **FIXED**

September 22, 2014

October 2014 Desktop Calendar Wallpaper (Free Download) | allonsykimberly.com

**Because I’m a complete dunce, the original files I uploaded had incorrect dates listed for the October calendar. I have since fixed my error and re-uploaded the correct desktop calendar wallpapers. So, if you downloaded any of the files before today (Oct. 1) you’ll need to re-download them to get a correct calendar for October 2014. My sincerest apologies to anyone who had already downloaded this wallpaper and was hoping to use it right away. I’m an idiot and I’m going to wallow in my shame now…

 

To download this wallpaper, choose the resolution you need for your desktop from the list below(to find out the resolution of your desktop click here). If you don’t see your resolution listed below, try choosing the closest size that’s LARGER than your resolution. It’s always better to shrink a picture down than to stretch it out to fit your screen. :)
