So now that I have this cool new premium membership thanks to incredi
, I decided I really wanted to get back into doing artsy things, because I haven't been into it for a long while.
So I've got a couple of art projects I'm going to start in the next week or so.
1.) I'm making something for a friend's birthday. I'm going to attempt to make him a plush toy Kodama, because we both really like the Miyazaki movie Princess Mononoke
and it's his 21st birthday real soon.
1.1.) I'm also going to trace my favourite photo of the two of us onto the card I want to make for him, rather than buying him a birthday card. He made the card he gave me for my birthday last year and we both agreed a present just means so much more when it was hand made. I just hope my sewing and tracing skills haven't deteriorated too much. I'll upload photos of it when it's done.
2.) I've got a couple of ideas for the webcomics I want to make, and my art stuff is now sitting in the boot of my car ready to travel back to Melbourne with me tomorrow.
2.1.) I'm going to web-comic-ify what I consider to be the best fanfiction I wrote, which was the main one I uploaded here on DeviantART as well as on my fanfiction.net account, titled 'Detention'.
2.2.) I came up with a concept for another comic this morning, but it needs much more fleshing out. Basically, there world is about to blow up, but there's an organisation that's created a space vessel that has the capacity to hold every registered human being and as the world is about to blow up, they zap people up into the vessel and they start waking up in the beds they've been assigned (organised according to where they live) a few days later. But unfortunately, there were quite a number of people who could not be saved initially for various reason and the beds they would have been assigned have a status of 'unretrieved' next to their names. So this organisation sets up a team to go back to the fragmented earth and try to retrieve more survivors while they try to figure out how to put the earth back together. Like I said, it needs a hell of a lot more work, but I'm really keen to write and draw it!!!
3.) I found all of my watercolour pencils! And I'd completely forgotten I had acrylic paints! So expect me to scan through some attempted stuff using that.
That's about it for now.
