alias_sqbr: She's getting existential again. It's ok I have a super soaker. (existentialism)
To try and tide myself over until the next episode I had a look at the AO3 Adventure Zone section, and had a surprisingly strong NOPE reaction to all the fic. So I thought about what fic I would theoretically write, and all my ideas felt kind of wrong too.

On further thought I've decided it's because of the nature of the canon.

I've been doing a lot of experimenting with Artrage. I've gotten enough of the hang of it for game background paintovers but I think I need to get more practice with the fundamentals of painting before I can use it for portraits etc.

I've also started work on a new game, a picross/nonogram puzzle visual novel called Nona&Gram.


Self Portrait: Artrage

more original art, Dragon Age, Star Wars/Pride and Prejudice crossover, Homestuck, Princess Tutu )

Not sure how this is going to look on tumblr BUT WE WILL SEE. Also, one reason there's not much here is that my tablet is dying, if anyone has recs for a reasonable quality graphics tablet that's not too pricey I'd love to hear them!

First, Femslashex treats! Didn't feel like signing up but doing treats was fun and my recipient was lovely.

Dragon Age:

Dragon Age: Fluffy Shoulders (Velanna/Sigrun)

Mass Effect, Undertale, Band vs Band, Seven Kingdoms: the Princess Problem )

Wow I haven't done a general creative roundup since last year. Mostly because I haven't been feeling like making general creative stuff. What I have been doing is...A NEW VERSION OF [REDACTED] OMG.

And now the THREE non Dragon Age arts I have drawn in the last six months, two for exchanges.
Addicted to You, Original, Puella Magi Madoka Magica )

Sunshine, daisies My completely adorable Bethany/Merrill art gift

And now some recs:
Martyred Really well done Flemeth character art, my next favourite work of the exchange.
Ruffles and Lace Cute Harding/Josephine fic
Writing love all over Sweet Josephine/Cassandra fic (a little shmoopy but that suits the pairing)
alias_sqbr: the symbol pi on a pretty background (Default)
[community profile] jukebox_fest is an exchange where you write fic, record podfic, or draw art based on a song (woo for them having art this year!). I did a treat last year and it was great fun. Nominations are open until April 4 so if you're interested in getting involved make sure there's some songs you find inspiring! The list of nominated songs looks promising.

I nominated:
Isobel by Bjork Youtube lyrics
Blinding Florence + the Machine Youtube lyrics
Girl With One Eye Florence + the Machine Youtube lyrics
Seamstress Dessa Youtube lyrics

I was about to nominate The Mercy Seat by Nick Cave but watching the video made me realise it's about an execution not about becoming some sort of doomed judge-King (yes it only took me 27 years shush). I could prompt for my interpretation anyway I guess but am feeling less enthused.

I am going to have trouble coming up with any prompts that aren't about doomed femslashy robots. Also I'm going to have to think carefully about what to offer, because my art style tends to suit happy humour, not the kind of weird angst my music taste tends towards.

To make up for not being able to "finish" a story since fanfiction.net is down and I can't crosspost.

And the rest is Inquisition! )

I wrote some fic! This may not seem very exciting but I haven't written any fic in over a year. Which is to say, not since shortly before my life fell into UTTER CRAP for a while. Hooray for life being less crap and a new Dragon Age game :)

I was boggling that I hadn't done one of these since June then looked at my post titles for the last few months and remembered how sick I was for a while there. But I managed to draw some stuff anyway through the fog :) Also I got a copy of Manga Studio 5, which does some lovely lines and painting...that make my computer cry :(

All art has transcripts/descriptions at the link.

Prettiest:

Snow White and Red Riding Hood


Most interesting:
News From The Sea: A little fantasy comic adapted from this short story I wrote. Created for a Comic Books and Graphic Novels course. Transcripts in chapter 2.

As far as I can tell I got...120% for this comic? And that's getting less than half of the available extra credit. lol coursera. But it was fun!

Person of Interest, Avatar: The Legend of Korra/The Last Airbender, Guild Wars 2, Dragon Age Origins, Mass Effect 2, Red Dwarf, Bastion, Dr Who, Original, Game of Thrones, The Hobbit, Fresh Pretty Cure )
alias_sqbr: (fanart remix)
That was a trip. Never run an exchange before, it was exciting and scary but really rewarding. Not sure how people with more than seven participants manage it :)

Anyway, go check out the great art at [tumblr.com profile] fanartremixexchange or [community profile] fanartremix. Here's mine:


The Avengers: The First Thing You See



The Sandman: Endless Delerium


And my two fantastic remixes: Fetch! (warning: blood) and Here Fishy Fishy!

Remixing and being remixed were both really great. Seeing my art come to life in someone else's head was SO COOL.

Both comms are open to submissions if any of you are inspired to create your own remixes *hint hint*

There's a bunch of fanfic remix exchanges and I love the idea but am much more of a fanartist. Any other fanartists interested in the idea of a fanart exchange? You'd get matched with someone with similar fandoms and choose a picture to create a transformative artwork from: a different point of view, what might have happened next, a larger context, a different character in a similar style, same content in a different style etc.

Ideas about how to run such a thing would be very much appreciated. I think the minimum requirements would be:
-an easily browsable collection of fanart eg a deviantArt account or tumblr tag
-at least three pieces of art in an eligible fandom (where the fandoms would be worked out in advance. And I'd be inclined to include stand alone original art as a "fandom" since a lot of people draw it)

The Remix Redux rules say no changing the pairing, which seems like a good idea given fandom. They also say "no changing the plot" which is less relevant.

I'd personally be ok with graphics, collages, and craft as well as more traditional art but I don't know how other people would feel about that. (Someone could KNIT THE SCARF a character is wearing!) The aim is to use the original work as inspiration, not to make someone a gift, so the assignees preferences are less important. I might let the remix be a fic/vid etc or based on one as long as everyone offered fanart to remix from as well, depends on people's preferences.

Thoughts?

For owlmoose. I am feeling super tired, so this is just going to be some off the top of my head rambles. I am SURE I am going to realise some of this is wrong later. I start with some discussion of the difference between art and writing since I can't see any way not to.

So. The thing with original art is that the art world is SUPER WEIRD.

I saw Frozen and really enjoyed it (though the people complaining about the aggressive whiteness were entirely justified). So I drew some art!


Brave/Frozen: Meeting the princess


And now my remaining other pictures for 2013/early 2014:
Original, Copper Rose )

Moving has horribly sapped my creativity, but while the mess is still not resolved I feel like I have some breathing space now. So! Stuff what I have made! Thank you to everyone who left me prompts, they were great.


A Portrait of Tree


An actual commission! For money! It was an interesting experience, but I am putting off trying it again until my life is more settled.
