Paint everyday.

I'm going to count digital art in there because it is artistic expression, just as photography is. Although, really, I should get out the paper and draw at the very least. *looks warily at sketchbook*

Anyway, this is today's pretty.

The GIMP is not behaving. I've been trying to save my progress for a couple of hours now, and no can do. I can and have saved each layer, but can't save it as a whole, even merging the layers.

I'm not sure what to blame, the program or the computer. Probably the computer.

grr, anyway.

Also, rude people suck.

That is all.

I am not exactly thrilled with this, but, well, working on it beat being bored, but even so, I think I've run out of steam on this particular drawing.

Done with graphite on white sketch paper, then I mucked about in photoshop quite a bit.

A different Hermione from my usual one. And I still cannot draw a 'pretty' Snape. Nope. Not going to happen. )

It's now also up at my deviant page. http://averygoodun.deviantart.com/art/Domesticity-118604146

Photoshop and I have been making amends today. However, I think I need to get a book and actually learn how to use it properly.

This took me all day and this is just the background! )

Here's another tinted plant.

Okay, if you have any constructive criticism, now is the time to give it. Otherwise, I'll be emailing this out this afternoon. (Compliments are always welcome at any time, though. :-)

Same thing, only cleaned up some )

Babe's sick again. We think he pulled a muscle from coughing so much. :-(

I can't believe how busy this week has been, and how much there is left to do. But, on the plus side, I made my first batch of bread of the season yesterday, and managed to get a decent dinner on the table in a timely manner. If I can get the frames for the triptych done by tomorrow night, I'll be happy. Oh, and the mats for the photos.

Here's my favorite pic to come out of my affair with photoshop.

I need to post these so I have them somewhere in case Geoff needs to make more room on this computer for work stuff.

Photoshopped pics )

Well. I spent longer on that than I intended. Oops.

Here are two more dreamscenes. The first is more how the scene appeared in the dream, but looking at [livejournal.com profile] alienor7710's recent photos, I was inspired to create version #2.

Thursday night I was traveling in the west. I was so far west, the mountains were to the east. Below the mountains was a vast, vast plain, flat as a pancake and washed of any saturation thanks to the harsh midday sun.

And here I thought my subconscious had given up such obvious puns! )

Geoff and Babe have disappeared. *shrug* I'm sure they'll turn up somewhere at some point.

In my search for them, I got on my bike and rode a bit. Not a very long ride, in fact it was a very, very short ride, but it was good to do. Even if it does prove that I am pathetically, horribly, shamefully out of shape. *shrug* It's my own darn fault.

But having the house to myself leaves me in a quandry. What do I do now? Do I paint? Hmm. That would be a very good thing to do, but I think I might wait until the light is a little dimmer so as to control the lighting of my arrangement a little more.

Write? That's another good idea. Question is, what do I write? There are the meme prompts I owe to [livejournal.com profile] maddyriddle and [livejournal.com profile] pigwidgeon37, there's the half-written chapter of SMHC, there's the expansion "No Comparison" needs, and then there's the graphic novel I have yet to start. Of course, I really need to figure out the main character's past before I write very far into that one. What was her role in the Apocolypse? Why are They out to get her? What is her motivation in being the Guardian?

Speaking of which, remember this pic I posted a while ago? Well, here's what it's based off of, which is what I'm thinking of using as my cover image for my graphic novel.

The Guardian )

I think I'll limber up with the prompts first. :-)

Playing around with GIMP some more.

It's been a while since I've done anything that's not, um, fandom related, so I thought I'd bring out the GIMP tonight and play around some more. This is the result:

Untitled, as always )

Reloaded to show edited version. Geoff didn't like the void of the previous version...

And because I'm feeling very medi'ochre' (sorry, I can't help it) at the moment...

give averygoodun more *HUGS*

Get hugs of your own

First, I'd like to mention that my scabiosa, which was looking like it had a week to go before it bloomed for the very first time, was broken off. Smashed to the ground. Sundered. I am less than pleased. I do not want to have to resort to those 2' high wire fences to protect my garden. They're ugly and tacky and I'd much prefer it if the kids (including my own) would just keep. off. the. bloody. garden.

Not pleased at all.

Second, I'm also not pleased about the picture behind the cut. I've decided that there are so many things inherently wrong with it that I'm not going to bother finishing it more than I already have. What bothers me about this failure is that I really like Snape's face. That and I've put an awful lot of hours into this and only in the last couple days have I realized that no matter how much I work on Hermione's face to make it look halfway decent, the picture is still buggered due to other (numerous) factors.

This doesn't please me, either.

bleh )

I think I'm going to go have a chocolate cookie and go soak my head. Or similar.

Still not done completely, but I think it's working a little better now.

Dear Heart )

I'm satisfied enough that I've put it up on my deviant page along with a bit of story text.

Next up will probably be a cleaned up version of "The Book." Maybe.
