I've moved to saint_vee on Dreamwidth and will no longer be updating this journal. Well that's obviously not accurate. I'm crossposting entries from Dreamwidth, so this journal will still be updated whenever I post fic or art.



I had so much fun both reading & doing the art for romanticalgirl's Write What You Know. She's an amazing writer and I love her Pete and Gabe so, so much.

I painted Pete and Gabe at the fair with Jake after Gabe's performance.

Dear Bandom Stuffs It writer,

I already know my gift will be amazing because Bordertown detective story, and even if you went with something entirely different that means you have an awesome brain and I'm sure I'll love whatever you came up with. So I can't wait to read your story! Unfortunately, I'll be mostly without internet from the 23rd through the 28th and may not be able to read it right away. As soon as I get back I'll be devouring it, I promise!

Bandom Big Bang 2010 roundup!

I did a mix for Need You Wild by fallintosilence and boweryd, which you can find here. The cover art is modified from an etching I did.

I also did art for two stories--elucreh's Waiting for an Indication and manipulant's Into the Woods.

Here's my art for Waiting for an Indication:
The ChartCollapse )

I actually stalked collaborated with manipulant for Into the Woods. I wanted to do more than the three pieces I managed, but I was working in a new style and new-ish medium (again! I need to learn to avoid this for BBB) and didn't have the time.

Title PageCollapse )

Red Riding HoodCollapse )

Sleeping BeautyCollapse )

And then I have tons of in-progress shots for the Red Riding Hood illustration.

seriously, tons. also some commentary.Collapse )

I learned a lot about watercolor and the specific technique I was aiming for, and will probably revisit it in the future. I'm aiming for something like what Tir-ri does, and I owe most of what I know about using masking fluid to some of her comments. Definitely check her work out, it's amazing.


bandombigbang art recs, part the first!

So bandom has some seriously talented artists, and bandombigbang is their time to shine. There's been some amazing art posted this year--so much, in fact, that I'll probably need to make three or four rec posts for it.

First up is theopteryx's art (MCR, Frank/Gerard, G) for You Don't Know a Thing About My Sins by criminalsofwar. I highly suggest checking out the fullsize of this one. Her use of color is always so amazing, and I love the weights of her lines. And Frank lighting Gerard's cigarette! Such an awesome illustration.

brille did a great digital painting (G) for oxyidiot's Waiting For the Sun, fullsize here. I love the super-restricted color palette, and the atmosphere it evokes. This feels like a magical, lonely place full of all sorts of secrets.

speep did an awesome cast lineup (MCR, G) for mcrnut's Of Love and Superpowers. I have a serious thing for the way speep draws legs, they always have such personality. I love Mikey's toaster and Ray's feet! And the little "approved by the comics code authority" sticker, such a great detail! Ooh, and how Frank's shadow has a little bit missing because of the fireball! Nice.

leatherteal drew the most adorable illustrations (MCR, PATD, TYV, Ryan/Ray, Spencer/Bob/Brendon, PG) for clarityhiding and okubyo_kitsune's There's Something in the Water Cooler (Or Maybe It's Just Love). Bob and his cat calendar! Restaurant Wednesdays! Spencer's face in the last drawing, seriously! In more artsy news, I love her lines. Seriously, seriously love. And everything is stylized but you can still tell exactly who everyone is and what they're feeling, which is difficult to do!

aredblush drew five amazing pieces (PATD, Spencer/Brendon, PG) for sunsetmog's A Presumption of Functionality. The level of detail in these is just incredible. I'm a particular fan of Brendon in his workroom with Spencer peering around the door, but all five are just fantastic.

desticex created a great piece (The Used, G) for schneestern's Possibilities in Basic Space. I love the colors in this, how muted they are and how they fade into each other. I love the strong horizontal lines, the broken fence curled on the ground, and I really love the marbled texture she used.

Check all this stuff out, I promise you won't regret it!
