Been trying out a lot of new art techniques lately (instead of writing up my guiding qualification, yes, I'm procrastinating) and thought I'd share them here. Some of these are made following tutorials exactly so I'm not making them public or claiming creative credit - those that are unique to me are posted on my tumblr 'cos it's so much easier to upload them there from my phone...

Title the biggest mistake of all (I didn't return your call)
Artist WhiskyInMind
Fandom(s) Leverage/Avengers (MCU)
Character(s)/Pairing(s) Quinn/Eliot, Quinn/Clint
Fic Nobody's Hero
Author [livejournal.com profile] theron09
Community/Challenge [livejournal.com profile] thebigbangjob 2013
Artist's Notes I GOT TO WORK WITH MEGAN AGAIN!!! Hee! No, seriously, this was an absolute joy to work on. Such a wonderful fic (which I'm assured will have a follow up because she can't leave it like that!) with such emotional and emotive pairings and just... Go read the fic. And then come back and listen to the soundtack as if it's the radio in Quinn's head, 'cos that's how I compiled it. (Yeah, Megan, there's a soundtrack under the cut I didn't tell you about... *grins*) I can only hope I came close to capturing the images that the story conjures up.

My entry for [livejournal.com profile] leverageland's Heist Seven, Challenge One: The Big One (a big bang-esque challenge to take ten hours to create something Leverage-related.

In case the icon table isn't displaying properly in my layout, here's the lj-light version

very image heavy, including gifs )

Total time (not including the unposted fic) aprox. 11 hours.

*phew*!

Tutorial originally posted over at [livejournal.com profile] teamgrifter for the 'Eliot Wallpaper' challenge. I promised a couple of Hitters that I'l post it once the heist was over... so here we go! And, if you're interested, I am actually right at this moment creating a gallery of 'Hide' screencaps (the CK film these screencaps come from. :) It will be here once it's ready!

What we're gonna do is take you through the making of this wallpaper, step by step.

New post - phone wallpapers - 'cos I was bored with the defaults on my Nokia and decided to work on something.
Samples:


Yesterday's post of a wallpaper for the lovely [livejournal.com profile] inspired_looney

Thumbnail:


And a special offer for my flist - I want to make more large graphics (wallpapers etc), prompt me? Gimme a character/pairing/fandom and a quote or lyrics or something? (As well as the size you want.) I'm also happy to make fic art) It might take a while, depending on how the inspiration strikes, but fire away!

So there are two challenges going on at the moment over at [livejournal.com profile] leverageland, the first is an 'inspiration tree' where someone posts something then other people write/create something inspired by something in that first post. Here's my stuff. :) (so far, I still have one left to do)

below the cut are wallpapers, icons, a fanmix and a PG rated manip )

And the other challenge was that we were given two random prompts. I got:

- Motorcycle
- The crowd spread out around like a meat blanket, she climbed onto a post box to get a better look.

So, one of the challenges at [livejournal.com profile] leverageland was to draw a picture either of a character or an episode.

I've always wanted to be able to draw - my Dad was really good, my sister is pretty good, I've never had the patience.

But I gave it a go. And with loads of tips from the ever-patient (and incredibly talented) [livejournal.com profile] thedothatgirl, I came up with this:
below the cut, to save your eyes! )

AND IT PLACED FIRST!!!

*SQUEE!*

Ahem, okay, I'm calm now, honest!
