I realised all my fairies/wizardesses/whatevers were looking more like Wings, so here's one that's more Rhia (plus some extra elf guy).



They let the females have much better fashion sense in this game.

Hopefully this post turns out properly from my iPad... I had to try the adorable fairy from [livejournal.com profile] wings128!

ETA: As mentioned in a comment below, the LOTR-themed wizards.



ETA 2: game here

Guys, I am so excited.  For the first time in forever, I feel creative again.  As some of you may remember, I used to make wallpapers and icons fairly often, among other creative pursuits.  Then, even though I've felt a lot better recently, I just didn't have that creative drive.  Which, okay, is a good trade for not being depressed/anxious/whatever, but kind of sad.  Well, yesterday I was flipping through the wallpapers on a sci-fi website that has a lot of (really, really fantastic) SGA and SG-1 papers.  There was a place where you could submit your own papers by email to the site admin, and if he thinks they're good enough, he might put them on the site.

Some of the things there blew my mind how much layering had to go into them, but some of them were easily on par with things I've created in the past.  So I thought, why not give it a go?  I found a screencap from Hot Zone that I'd been working on before, and finished it up, then sent it in.  But I thought I should do one completely from scratch.  So I spent no less than four hours on it this evening, and I really like it.  The base image is a cap from The Tower, and then I've used stuff from other caps.  I'm not sure whether to send it in though.  What do you think, internet?  I've scaled it down here; it's 1024x768, which is the size the site wanted as a minimum.

More GIMP stuff.
The original:
Enhanced:
Posterised:

I like to think I've gotten fairly decent at manipulating layers, masks, and colours.

In completely unrelated news, I (might) be working on SGA fic.  On non-cracky wing!fic.  It might even have aspirations of becoming a novel-sized work.  There are notes, so I consider that to be a good start.

Ah, more artwork I feel the need to share, since I spent not inconsiderable time on it.

Today I at least turned my not-feeling-well into something semi-productive: I messed around with GIMP for several hours and came up with this:

Happy Christmas to all who celebrate! We've had a nice (if very wet) day so far, and I've made (hopefully) good use of one of my gifts already. It's a book called The Artist's Guide to GIMP Effects, and it's a really nice tutorial/refresher for all skill levels. I played around with a few layering/colouring/patterning effects, and here are the results (original art by people who aren't me):



Photobucket won't let me upload .xcf images, so I can't show the variations that are still in layers, but these are two that I finished. I spent about an hour on the elf, and about 2-2.5 hours on the face. It had about six layers, and almost as many layer masks. The hair was frustrating, and I'm not totally satisfied with it, but I wanted to finish it up. The originals looked like this:

So I went to a gallery opening tonight with Darryl, Kaylie, and Kevin (who's back visiting!), and I saw this marvellous painting of a girl in a bedroom. The thing that made it marvellous was that on the bedroom wall was a poster for Miyazaki's Spirited Away! Such a cute, beautiful movie.
