I seriously hate to do this, but I already lock over 90% of my posts, so it made no sense to put this off any longer.



If you're here to read my fic or other fandom stuff, these are the only entries I'm keeping public. No need to friend me just because of that.

Otherwise, I love friends, so comment, and I'll add you right away. =)

I haven't read any Potter related posts on my flist for weeks. So I can honestly say I went into this completely unspoiled.

SPOILERific reactions/first thoughts after Harry Potter and the Deathly HallowsCollapse )

I cannot believe it's over.

I'm gonna keep it short since I just walked in the door from my 10-day ski trip. It's 1.45 am and I have to be at uni for a midterm at 8.

And we've been driving since forever.

Anyway, to recap, I got bored one evening, had brought no paper etc, and decided to give PAINT a go.

No references used since I had none. No wonderful layers or blending. Just simple pixels in Paint.

And despite the wacky proportions I had fun (it turned out to be very relaxing not worrying about getting things right), even if during colouring not erasing the lineart became a problem.

I hurried to share, since these were just really fun to do.

So, here you have it - learning to draw in Paint (with a mouse, naturally) in four fanart portraits. In chronological order to show the 'progress' in handling Paint. :p

Molly, Hermione, Snape, Ginny - all GCollapse )
****

These were all done during a 2-day period. Insane really.

Photos (I have some really good ones!) and a recap of the trip coming as soon as I'm a bit more rested from my holiday. ;)

Book seven title? I'm sorta sad that it's out. And thought I'd be more excited, but all I can really think is how many fanfics will there be in the next months with the exact same title?

Meh.

And my most prominent thought today? 'Why the bloody hell did I waste two hours of my life on Eragon?'

It's got to be the biggest pile of shite I've seen in ages. The only thing worst have been... I don't even know what, but with Eragon they atleast had decent material to work with and they still managed to churn out a thing where the only acceptable element was the dragon. Grr. Like I've said before, the book isn't among the best fantasy epics I've read, but it is a fun read nonetheless. Compared to the film it's a masterpiece.

To erase the experience from memory I re-watched The Princess Bride with little sis. Now that was fun.

And since bedtime is closing in, I leave you with - 'Rest well, and dream of large women!' =)

So, it's been almost ten months since I lasted posted fanart. I kinda feel guilty. So what you get is Hermione after the final battle.

The one my dear flist saw unfinished yesterday. And please, don't mind the hair. Finding it impossible almost stopped me from finishing, so it can't be helped that when it exploded in my face I kind of kept going.

Title: After
Characters: Hermione
Rating: G
Media used: pencil sketch one of my sisters posed for, scanned in, lineart cleaned up in The GIMP. After that lots of gimping with my trusty mouse and a knitting pattern photo found on google. Lots of references for tears... word of advice, when trying your first realistic looking colouring, don't decide on tears. Takes up way much time. ;)

Read more...Collapse )

I think I'd like to go back to b&w now. Colouring - not as easy as it seems.

Title: A Perfect Day
Characters: Lily/James
Word count: 461
Rating: G, just completely G


Smile now...Collapse )

Haven't done one of these in a while.

Anyway, the short story: an unexcpected hour of free time behind an ancient computer with only MS Paint. A doodle that didn't want to stay a doodle. Later at home, the background added, and her eye touched up in PS. As always, mouse only.

Title: Cissy
Rating: G, since it's a portrait.
A/N: This doesn't look like something of mine at all. Entirely different style. But I couldn't help but finish it after I had started.

Narcissa MalfoyCollapse )

Still unsure whether I like it or hate it.

Now, a good indea in theory, ask for drabble prompts to take up three hours. I hit a glitch with the first one. The damn thing decided to mutate into a ficlet. :p

Title: In the Dark
Characters: Snape/Bill
Rating: PG-13
Wordcount: ~1650
A/N: For lisamarie0921. Her prompt was: Severus Snape/Bill Weasley. Wartime affair. "Bill wonders how he could possibly stay with Fleur now that he knows..."

Strange things happen in the night.Collapse )

As you can see, it's been a busy night/morning. ;)

Title: Whispers in the Night
Rating: PG-13 to be on the safe side
Wordcount 2914
Disclaimer: Nothing but the plot is mine
A/N: My thanks to misscake for being wonderful and betaing this fic super fast. This is a genfic companion piece for The Darkness Within. It can stand on its own, but it contains major spoilers for the last couple of chapters. Consider yourselves warned!

The aftermath of the final battle.Collapse )
