Hi guys! :wave:

I know it's been forever since I wrote a journal entry, but lately I haven't been much on deviantart. I wanted to tell you where you can find me. 

You can see all my work and follow me on:

Besides this, in case you are wondering, I am very happy these days! I moved back to Madrid and now I'm going to a photographic studio where I am learning how to lighten. I am also using other faces besides mine, as can be seen in my latest work, "facade.".

I want to work as a fashion photographer, so this is all very exciting for me :)

And how are you guys doing? :heart:


last night I was inspired.

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 18, 2013, 11:04 AM
"Last night I was inspired.
It was a sad, cold, lonely night. Thoughts screaming, yelling at me. I literally wrote nonsense on the wall for hours, about beating hearts, fragility and failure. About skeletons that had no legs and hissing fangs that glared at me. 
Once again my cruel best friend arrived, embracing me with its gleaming coldness. She was dressed in silver and scarlet; our favorite colors. She danced as I wrote and sang as I cried. And then I was suddenly left in the dark; lonely, hating her -hating them-, and crying. 

Yet it was strange that what I only got to feel then, was inner peace."

"Anoche fui inspirada.
Era una triste noche, fría y solitaria. Pensamientos chillando, gritándome. Escribí cosas sin sentido en la pared durante horas, sobre corazones que laten, sobre fragilidad y fracaso. Sobre esqueletos sin piernas y colmillos siseantes que me mataban con la mirada. 
Una vez más, mi cruel y mejor amiga llegó, abrazándome con su frialdad brillante. Iba vestida de plata y escarlata; nuestros colores favoritos. Ella bailó mientras yo escribía y cantó mientras yo lloraba. Y entonces, de repente me dejó sola en la oscuridad; sola, odiándola -odiándoles-, y llorando.

Aún así, extraño fue que lo único que sentí fue paz conmigo misma."

thank you!!

Thank you for wishing me a happy birthday!! I have been really busy, this weekend I've been in Valencia for another exhibition, two weeks ago I was in Madrid for the PhotoPentax Congress, and I'm working like crazy! I've been published in a Korean magazine (PHOTO+) and I am the cover for Artzine's 16th magazine.
School is killing me too. So I apologize if I haven't been able to do much. :(

Back to the topic, thank you, it means so much to me <3

I feel lonely.

Life is a disaster right now, as if everything was crumbling down, and I don't know how to cope with such pain. I once thought I was in control of the situation, but it's getting worse and I don't feel like myself anymore. I don't know what I did, nor what I'm doing, but it is probably something horrible of which I deserve punishment.
It's hard to wake-up every morning, to get up, it hurts to pretend. But it's fine, experience has taught me well.

I'm probably better off alone anyway.

Sounds like a lie, when all I did was write an embellisment of the truth.

master of decadence.

Although it might not seem so, she had been the killer in the crowd; that night she had come to hunt them all down. No mercy, she did it one by one. Surprised? Allow me to explain, such devil, such wicked heart, black and untamed. Afraid? Listen close now; her show is about to commence.

She hisses, she snarls, and she whispers, and she laughs. She's the prettiest of all, with evil mind, sweetly to prowl. Bony fingers of long sharp nails, her lovely hands were made to tear flesh. But fragile she is and one day she might break. Just a beautiful sinner now wasted away. Oh, such enchanting cadaver, dancing and dead.

And as she keeps dancing she starts pulling you down. Down into a dark place you alone would never have found. You shout, stupidly unbowed. But sadly at night, only silence is loud. And as her silhouette continues to skulk, twirling around, you finally understand. She's the master, a queen with no crown.

And although her heart is cold and her teeth are sharp, she once had been human like us, so keep that in mind. She will love you. She will force you. She'll leave you behind. First you'll be falling, last you'll be blind.

Haunt your demons.

Chain them up, hunt them down.

He could hear it, the bloody figure walking behind him over nimble feet. Then his eyes were forced to close as cold, bony fingers covered his sight. Nails like claws buried deep into his cheek as she breathed softly, surely bloody lips drawn into that scornful smile he both loved and detested.

"You're mine."

And then she was gone, back into the sweet torments of his mind. And then, like venom, she left him on the floor, dead and strangely calm.


I had to get this out of my head.
I know, I'm weird.

How ironic.


So I uploaded this as a curiosity and sudden realization

damn make-up. by cristina-otero

And my god, when I saw this afternoon the response, like 400+ comments? A hot debate I created about beauty, being natural or not. I kinda feel like a troll :la:

But on to the point,

Please, I just want to say before anyone jumps into conclusions, I am neutral on the matter.
I don't care if wearing make-up is good or bad, or makes you look better or worse.
I'm just stating the obvious; people can be transformed by make-up.

My purpose of this is to actually show make-up is another form of ART, and to me, being the most important tool in my work, makes wonders.
Sometimes being natural  is boring (NOT ugly I say), and my goal is to create characters that can't exist but are born and molded from my head to you by makeup. And they are not always beautiful, not to me. But I don't care.

I don't know if any of you get it, what I'm trying to say, or if it makes any sense.
But whatever, thought I had to say it. :)

thank you for everything.


To be scared after you hear the radio from your parents' bedroom being suddenly turned on. The only logic reason to this is that Troll (my dog) did it, because I'm alone.

....Of course it was him. He's such a troll. :lmao:

I dyed my hair today. It's a mixture of orange and pink. I'm looking all weird, which makes it even more exciting :la:

If you want to see it, i posted a picture in facebook…

I'm loving it :love:

PS: sorry for such a weird journal entry :D
Thank you for telling me about this


This lady right here, or man I don't care, has cropped, edited and not credited me. She wisely cut my signature and changed the color of my deviation even in death it grows. by cristina-otero

Nice job, girl.

What really pisses me off is the fact that this has a lot of notes, which means my original is not being put out there.

What am I supposed to do in this case?
Hello everyone! :wave:

I wanted to announce that I've got a new camera!! :la:

It's Pentax k5. I haven't had time to use it, but it's looks amazing!! I'm really excited, and surely tomorrow I'll be shooting with it! It's definitively much better than the one I had before so I'm sure I'll notice some really big differences.

I'll tell you how it goes!!


Hola a todos! :wave:

Sólo quería anunciar que hoy fui a recoger mi nueva cámara!!:la:

Es la Pentax k5. No he tenido tiempo de probarla, pero tiene una pinta buenísima!! Tengo unas ganas locas de que llegue mañana para poder probarla! Es definitivamente mucho mejor que la que tenía antes, así que es estoy segura que notaré grandes diferencias

Ya os contaré como va!!

thank you

Thank you so much for the 200k pageviews. I never thought I'd reach that many. Really, thank you.
Also for the +11k followers here on dA, as well as the +11k in Facebook.

I can't believe it, it's amazing.

Thank you for all your support, it's mind-blowing what you did with the thieves; in a few hours they were all gone. I really appreciate all you do, all the love I receive.

If someone were to tell me when I started two years back from now, that I'd have all this, I'd laugh at it.

I wish I could answer all of you, but it's impossible.

So, thank you. I can't really express this feeling.
