So I was looking for a certain illustration as inspiration for a project. An illustration of Thom Yorke of Radiohead. I still haven't found the illustration, but I did notice something else rather amusing.

Not surprisingly, my tumblr dashboard has turned a lot more fannish and a lot less photographic in the last few weeks.

I'm really looking forward to seeing This means war (Das gibt Ärger) in the cinemas soon. Just so I can witness things like this.

Kirsten Bell remains adorable. Also Sloths!!!

[personal profile] oxoniensis has started the next porn battle.

On another note, my buddy R had no juice on monday and rather than freeze is ass of he spent the night on my couch playing Uncharted 3. Gaming is not good for me. Even watching other people play. But damn, that thing is exciting. Very Indiana Jones. I can totally understand them wanting to turn it into a movie.

I am slowly catching up on shows and am a bit emberassed to say I really enjoy the Lying Game. I'm not even sure what else I caught up on. I think I watched the entire first season of Sherlock AGAIN. Fringe remains awesome and if you aren't watching you totally should be!

Tried a tutorial the other day and ended using my own techniques again. Still liking the result:



Happy belated birthday [livejournal.com profile] oxoniensis, [livejournal.com profile] thiana and [livejournal.com profile] icequeen3101

Happy birthday sweetie!!  I hope you have an awesome day detecting and stuff ;) This is for you. An experimantal something which I hope you will like. In this, both Sherlock and Mycroft are Spies in the Secret Service and are entangled in a web of conspiracy. Or maybe not ;)


As for the materials I used, several brushes from brushking.eu and publicity images I found on spoilerfix.com.

[livejournal.com profile] legoline write this really nice fanfic called Change of Scenery as a birthday present for [livejournal.com profile] roadrunner1896. And I made a cover art for the both of them. It's a crossover between Sirens and The Golden hour.


Anyway, happy birthday sweetie!!!

Snagged from one of my favorite coms [livejournal.com profile] daily_flan. There is an image and a video on the production site of Joe Flanigans new movie the over side. I made very awesome icons from it. I'm saying that because a) it was so much fun making these while watching fringe (I'm at ep 14 now, I think...) and I'm really really happy with the result!




[livejournal.com profile] mcshep_match is already over again. My team, team play, lost. But not by much :) >ou can find a masterlist of all stories and artworks here. It was a lot of fun doing this again and the artwork I created for it, was a concept I've been planning for quite some time...

So yesterday I was all "action" and in a sudden bout of wanting to post more and use more icons, I renewd my paid account. Only then I didn't do anything with it. No icons uploaded, nothing done. Maybe today ;)

I've got 5 wallpaper work in progresses in various stages (two are for White Collar and the incaption one has totally misfired). I'm not going to show you all except one. Because I cannot keep it to myself anymore. It's a piece I've been planning to do for [livejournal.com profile] legoline for ages. Back then she was still heavily into Supernatural. So it's SPN centric.

I will not tell you the actual story of it yet, just show you the first stage which is pretty fandomless, but I'm still so damn happy and proud of the result. Also see a picture of most of the images I used for this composition.




See larger version (the original will be even bigger).

The next stage willbe very tough and tricky. I haven't figured out yet how to do it. But leT's hope for the best ;)

So... if I made icons or art in fandoms.. certain fandoms.. what would you like and do you have images you really love? I might use them to create something...

Posting art every day...do you like it or is it getting on your nerves? In this one I tried out tons of things in Adobe Illustrator. I'm mastering that better and better now that i'm practising again.



I'm having a lot of fun with this mean. Not just because I love the old spice commercial and all incarnations of it, but well..it's fun.

Remember I said I'd try something creative every day? This is Saturday, Sunday and Monday ;) It isn't the greatest stuff in the world, but it has helped me tremendously to understand the wacom pen in combination with photoshop better. And actually getting visual and hand coordination in order is improving as well for me. Also all three are testament to my impatience.



2 more... one special guest )

[livejournal.com profile] mcshep_match has started! Which means tons of awesome art and fanfiction. Go check it out, th first two entries have been posted.

Also, I guess you all know by now who has a twitter. Have I mentioned that I watched all episodes of Sisters with Joe Flanigan in it yet again?

Happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] aurora_84!

I have made myself a vow last weekend. I would create something graphic every day that is NOT work related. And I would try out new stuff. So addition to some True Blood icons (seriosuly!!) I made this artwork for So you think you can dance. Because I love dance. Yeah.and I know Dance Day is tomorrow and not today...

It's Jeanie Mason from season 4. I really liked her a lot.

WTf Livejournal? Where is everyone. I just went back 40 and I'm alredy through my flist reading. This is strange. Who of you all is now actively using dreamwidth. Do you believe everyone went there or is fandom just less active generally?

I participated in [livejournal.com profile] mcshep_match this year and had a blast. I was even on the winning side! Team War YAY and I have this awesome banner to show for it.

McShep Match Team War Winner
So if you have yet to read the fanfiction or look at the art, go do so!

This is my entry. My prompt to use was Red Herring. Klick in the Preview image to see the actual entry.

MIA Red Herring

Give me some love. I needs it.

Listening to "Die Frei Fragezeichen". I cannot believe those have been around for 30 years.

ps: Small rec: get really awesome fonts for your art at http://www.fontex.org.

Honey, you rock!!! Which is why I saved this just for you.

A few weeks ago, [livejournal.com profile] svmadelyn asked me to do a skin for the Merlin Big Bang "Box of magic." I agreed to it, and having wanted to do a certain kind of Merlin artwork in forever, I concocted this, which was the wallpaper version of the header done for my skin. The entire background is comprised of many images. There is a Camelot there too if you look close enough. the unicorn had to leave after several attempts. It didn't look all that good!



Version 1 | Version 2


Happy birthdaaaaaaaaaay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So basically even though my To Do list is a whole lot longer than I care to admit *cough* and RL is pretty much kicking my ass (I need to simplify...). I went and not only rewatched Ollian (not all of it mind you) and far worse read bad fanfiction and made fanart about my recent crush/obsession whatever you want to call it. And yes, the name is Chris Pine.

So basically there were promo pics for this horrid looking movie which I will probably see anyways and I went and played with Typography.

Shameless Photoshop and Xara 3D experimentation. This journal has been artfree for far too long, so I'm gonna post what I created last sunday.


version one | version two


Textures are my own only. Images of birds from Stock Exchange.

I'm doing workout for my back but I definately overdid it yesterday. My whole back is sort of hard and thus I have this monstrous headache.

Happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] speakfree!!

Anyways, sometime in january I decided I needed a new userinfo and thus revamped my livejournal style as well.

The userinfo cost me a lot of my patience because livejournal doesn't play by normal html and css rules. The intention was to have a sort of alternate universe including some of my favorite shows. And I do think the new userinfo has sensible information. What do you think?


Anyways, what good is the carnival season if I don't use it for something good. I finished the layout this weekend! Now it works in ie6 as well. If you still find glitches or see them... if you could check it I'd be very grateful. I've cleaned the whole lj css and tweaked a lot of the base style. Would anyone be interested in using it? Because I would share it.

I've incorperated the rotating script into this layout and so far I have 7 headers so far:

  • SGA: Sheppard, Vegas
  • Terminator the Sarah Connor Chronicles
  • Merlin: Merlin/Arthur
  • Lost: Daniel and Sayid
  • Lost: Ben and Jack
  • Verbotene Liebe: Ollian
  • ASWT: Luke

And will still make some others for Supernatural, SGA, Ollian, the Mentalist, How I met your mother and a few other shows I love. Maybe even Smallville and Star Trek Voyager. So comments, suggestions and critisism are welcome. Or maybe just feedback :)

Check out my brilliant present by [livejournal.com profile] animotus here.

ETA: wohoot! There's a new Terminator: the sarah Connor Chronicles!!

Remember I said I want to catch up? The entries for [livejournal.com profile] sga_art_santa have finally been revealed and well here is the preview to mine.

Please keep in mind that I didn't have a lot of time, haven't manipped in over two years and well, it's kind of off to me. Has it really been december since I created any art?

I've been meaning to share this with you! The amazing [livejournal.com profile] animotus made this for me for christmas! Isn't it just amazing!



Anyways, I've been collecting some absolutely brilliant fannish recs!

  • SGA, McShep: Escape Velocity by [livejournal.com profile] aesc and [livejournal.com profile] dogeared
    This is an entry for [livejournal.com profile] artword's astronomy challenge and is a bit based on spoilers for the episode Vegas. The way it's built up is really cool.
  • Merlin/Arthur: Of the earth by [livejournal.com profile] newkidfan
    Visially one of my favorite fanarts in quite a while. Mixed media. I just love the composition a lot!
  • SPN: Thorn in your side by [livejournal.com profile] animotus
    Brilliantly composed and textured SPN art featuring all your favorite characters (Dean, Sam, Cas and Daddy Winchester!)
  • SGA, McShep: Be my yoko ono by dayln03
    This music vid is just sweet fun without any hassle.
  • SGA, McShep: Casa MShep by [livejournal.com profile] berlinghoff79

  • SGA, McShep:The Touchstones of Our Characters by [livejournal.com profile] velocitygrass

  • SGA, McShep: Heart Arrhythmia by [livejournal.com profile] lavvyan
    Well, I have a sore spot for Shepard and McKay/Keller fics which later turn into McShep. I love suffering John as long as he gets his man in the end. Rec me some if you know any.
    The cover, even as a printed version can be found here by [livejournal.com profile] newkidfan
