Czech Republic
Hi, my name's Martina, I live in the Czech Republic and I study Zoology at the Faculty of Science, Charles University in Prague.
I have two, no, wait, already three big passions - watching birds, drawing and now also karate! Haha, what a combo, right? :D
I'm just an amateur, but I try to spend as much time practising as possible, because I wanna get better and better :eager: I have a lot to learn, so if you see something that's off in some of my works, don't hesitate to tell me so I don't repeat that mistake next time :aww:
And thank you for stopping by :)

Current Residence: Prague, Czech republic
Favourite genre of music: soundtracks, classical music, christmas carols, or whatever I like...
Personal Quote:
What can't be achieved by force, can be achieved by even greater force!
Quae nocent, saepe docent.
...... meaning (for those who can't speak latin): What hurts, often instructs.(I really like this one especially since I've taken up karate... it's a great quote, there's a lot of thruth in it :D)

Ahh, it's summer and incredibly hot these days...
I realised I haven't updated my journal in some time again and since I use it a bit like a diary and I'm procrastinating at the moment, I'd like to write a few things down :)

After my lapwing season ended (and it looks like I might actually have enough data for my thesis, now!), I went to Croatia on a training camp with my karate group. It was an incredible week and I enjoyed myself so much! We had a lot of fun and fooled around quite a bit, too... :)

I shared the room with three girls and two of our teachers and we had frequent visits from other friends from a room across the hall, shared the dishes, fridges and so on, so it was always very lively around :)
There I even passed the grading for the 6th kyu and therefore earned to right to sow a nice black stripe on my orange belt :)

Just the next weekend there was another, very intensive training camp with 4 or 6 hours of karate a day and some more sports in the meantime. The next weekend there was a visit of two high graded karate teachers from England, so we showed them around and spent some time with them. Yeah, that's basically how I spent June :D

I decided to work on school stuff etc. in July, but I'm procrastinating however I can and go to any karate event there is. There are some planned for August, so until then I need to work harder. One of the projects that needs to be done is to prepare my first ever poster (about my lapwings) for a scientific conference in - tam ta da da! - Iceland! :)  ...and there's still a lot of work on it...

As for the next school year, I hope to finish my diploma thesis and preparing the poster may help me with the deadlines :)
And another news is that, quite unexpectedly, three of my fellow karate students and I have been asked if we wouldn't be interested in helping out our teachers by actually getting our own beginner children class to teach. I'm not very sure if I'm experienced and competent enough, but we decided we'd at least give it a try and if there won't be any major problems, we will get our very own students :) That idea is kind of scary, but exciting at the same time.

What are your plans for summer? :)

Seeing how you can draw and paint, if you are even half as good at karate you are probably a deadly killing machine.
Nachiii Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Haha, thanks a lot :D I definitely a lot to improve in both, too. I haven't been doing karate for too long yet and I'm not too confident in my skills.
Anyway, thanks for your kind comment! :aww:

Ahoj ^^ jen se chci zeptat, jak jsi na tom s kartičkou pro mě ^^;
Nachiii Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Ale nééé, já se tak strašně moc omlouvám, úplně jsem zapomněla! Tedy lépe řečeno jsem měla pocit, že už je výměna dávno hotová, protože kartičku už jsem kreslila... a pak jsem ji našla nedodělanou v šuplíku :facepalm:
No a protože už tam ležela nějaký čas, vidím na ní všechny ty mouchy, tak jsem se rozhodla ji raději úplně předělat. Každopádně hotovo, je to také double ACEO. DOufám že se bude líbit a ještě jednou promiň! :worship:…

Aha,, nic se neděje, to se může stát každému :)
Děkuju mockrát,, fakt se mi moc moc líbí :3
Kdyžtak mi, prosím, pošli adresu do note, abych Ti mohla poslat tvoje ACEO :3

I love the realistic bird art on your page.  Are you available for commissions?  I need some realistic digital images of birds for a project we are doing.  I don't want to share much on your public page, but if you would email me I would be glad to tell you about it.  Thanks!
