Hello everyone,

It has been a very long time since my last actual journal! I have to confess, the status update system on dA is really quite comfortable to use. I usually end up posting short life updates on there rather than writing a new journal XD;;

Either way, a lot of things have happened, and most of them have been quite important beyond my presence here on deviantART.

The End of an Era: From Zephyr to Zane

So, as some of you know, my computer has died. If you don't, here's the short version:
My last computer, Zephyr, was a real trooper that I got in 2011 after my then-also-named-Zephyr computer had an unhappy meeting with the floor and the display crashed. Considering, however, that I had guarded the pre-Zephyr with my life for five years, it was due time to change. That's when I got my new beauty, the real Zephyr, who accompanied my life from that point on - until he, too, meet some grizzly fate.
After five years of water splashing, careless bumping, battery problems etc. finally he gave up. I was very sad.

However, I was much more stressed, because Zephyr died on me right in the middle of deadlines.

Thanks to a very kind classmate, I was able to borrow one of her old laptops for a month - a netbook that was older than my dearly-departed Zephyr - and was able to deliver at least the assignments that I needed. However, with a screen that was so tiny my deviantART looked like a mosaic, and a processor that could not even handle google chrome, it was still quite a stressful month, since it slowed down my work process to thrice the time needed.

EITHER WAY. After a month of waiting and careful choosing, I finally got my new computer  - Zane! He is blue, he is shiny, and dear lord, he is sleek. Here is a picture of that beautiful beast:

I do love him dearly. I am sure he will be a wonderful companion for the years to come as well! *u*


The Quest for Diplomacy or: Stuck between a blanket and a Pillow


So, ever since the beginning of 2016, I had a lot of work to do. My exam period was riddled with loads of tough exams, one of which was on EU constitutional law that I passed luckily, and since they spanned across the entirety of the university exam period, I ended up having to cram until the very last day - and during the exam period, I got a notification from the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna that I had been invited to their examination process, which would happen in February. In general, not a big problem.... but at this point in time, I didn't know that one of my classes would demand so much work from me that I would not have any time to do anything but assignments for it.

Cue tension. Plus the fact the entrance exams went really badly.

Long story short: I kissed my dreams of going to the DA good bye. February and the subsequent March - which was also the month when my computer broke down -  were terrible months for me. I hadn't been that stressed out in a long time. But, after a while I recuperated my strength. I had in the meantime received an offer to go and live in Korea for a whole year while studying for a second masters, which would cover all my living and transport expenses - so I was set on going to Korea, prepared, told people I'd be there.

Then I got an email from the Diplomatic Academy, and not only had I been accepted, but with the maximum scholarship possible. Needless to say, I had not expected that, and suddenly, I was confronted with a choice: Go to Korea to live a year without any living costs and redirect myself to a more economic direction, or go to Vienna, pay for living etc., but coming closer to diplomacy?
I debated long and hard with myself, my family, and with friends.  Which way should I go? Was it worth going the expensive way, or would going the other route be beneficial as well?
Ultimately, neither school wanted to give me a deferral - and I decided that it was time to connect with the Austrian way of diplomacy. So, starting from next year, I will
 be in the capital of classical music, and the heart of European diplomacy. I am more than excited!


Es ist noch kein Meister vom Himmel gefallen: The Tiresome path of getting a Masters Degree

So, here are some less happy news. Basically, I will be rather inactive until at least the middle of May. I have a lot of assignments, thesis research, interviews for my thesis, etc. etc. to do, and the deadlines won't stop any time soon. This means I'll have to cut back on the more detailed artwork for the foreseeable future. I do have the next update to my Undertale short comic ready, which I want to post by the beginning of May!

Other than that, I held a Kiriban for my 111.111th pageview recently! The lucky winner was N30NTECH! :) I will definitely get to your speedpaint commission as well.

I can't wait for when deadlines are going down a little. I'll be sure to explode with artwork!


Of Dragoons and Fantastic Tales

I am currently obsessed with Final Fantasy. FFIV is - right now - my favorite Final Fantasy of all time. I am currently playing FF VI in order to make sure that my favorite game will not change once I play through VI. But! I can now officially say that FFIV is a must-play game. I am immensely in love with the characters - especially one of them. I mean, his design and character arc, and flaws make for one of the most compelling characters in the entirety of the FF history. Considering that I have played this game sometime in 2008 or 9 before, I can say with certainty now that he has had a huge influence on me. He's the entire package - designwise, characterwise, everything! I love him a lot. Just thinking about him makes me emotional T____T


End of the Line

All right, that's all I have to say! This journal has turned out much longer than expected. Thanks for reading it all ;)
I am considering opening commissions once the deadlines die down. Would anyone be interested?

Until then, stay safe, everyone!

We interrupt this transmission for a quick sketch. I love Peridot so much, but the more I watch her, the more she reminds me of a certain other green alien trying to impress his Tallest...

Artist | Student | Digital Art

Hello and welcome to my humble corner on deviantART!



The name's chinara, or Denise. I am a graduate in the field of European Politics, Society and Economics with a distinct passion for art. Particular interests lie with Game Development and Concept Art.


Personally I am a digital artist who did not have the gift of art education, but of friends who helped me along the way. I take pleasure in painting and concepting, even though most of the latter does not make it onto this page.


Concerning my profile, I fear that there is a questional abundance of fanart, robots and odd purple creatures that change their shape more often than they should. Commissions are usually available upon request, so just leave me a note!



That would be all. I will await you across the sea.
