Hello! I'm a bit if of a stranger recently, but my new computer came (eventually) so I'm back. Well I bloody well hope I am, I seem to be jinxing things and they break lately.

Also, in case LJ goes down again I have a Dreamwidth account here  I'd be so sad to loose touch with some friends, so add me. I'll only be using it as back up and maybe cross post art or something (need to get over my grumble with twitter and go on there more to.)

Speaking of art I have some to share soon once my new scanner comes (guess what broke as well? JINX!!!) I may not be doing as much art as I have lately though. I was very lucky to be asked by the brilliant [livejournal.com profile] withlightning  [livejournal.com profile] knowmydark  and [livejournal.com profile] dreamlittleyo  to work with them on the X-men Big Bang. I'm so honoured and want to give them my all, because I'm going to suck so much at it (I've seen who some of the artists signed up are and mannnnnn...so good) , so most art I do will be for their stories. I'll try to sneak in some new pieces now and then though ;)

Ohhh I really can't wait to see this next year, AVENGERS TEASER ♥♥. (Tony is secretly groping Thor there while his boyfriend Steve fumes XD) So excited to be a comic book fan in these past months and coming years ♥ I just have to try and bribe one of my evil friends to go watch Captain America with me now *pouts*

lastly I leave you with some X-men recs for stories that I've loved lately

ANYTHING by [livejournal.com profile] manic_intent  I’m so happy to see her in x-men fandom, her dragons Age fics are a fave of mine. though is a stand out for me is All The Worlds In Between, by manic_intent .  

The God Boy and the Soldier  AU where Charles never made it to the college, and somehow fell into the hands of bad people who had interests in his power, Erik was still with Shaw and trained into an killing machine. One day he ran into another boy in the research center, who was locked up and being experimented on like a lab rat.

Utopia Erik kept Charles locked away in a safe house until the conquest was over. Now that he's established himself as the ruler(ish) of this new world-order, Erik brings Charles to his new home/palace and informs him very politely that he, Charles Xavier, is to be his new consort. Charles is less than pleased. Cotton walls http://archiveofourown.org/works/213285 In large crowds, Charles finds it difficult to control his telepathy. While they're on their recruitment road trip, Erik tries to help. WIP.

Actually, most of my faves are here on my Delicious so to not spam your flist check them out there. Of course if anyone has recs to share with me, i'd love to be poked XD

I missed you all *hugs* (runs away to start her XMFC BB fail art X_X

Well that is it, my poor computers coughed its last (Stealing mums laptop to post this) I turned it on yesterday for it to make some popping noises, then just not work at all. Been told my whole motherboard and processor have gone ;_; Poor Bodie (yes I named my computer :P), you’ve been with my 4 years, and lived thought my flogging you to death with Photoshop, I’ll miss you. Thank goodness I ordered a new one last week, just waiting on it to be built now ♥

I’m a bit depressed about everything going wrong though, so I’m going to post some art instead, and not bore you with my boring aggravating life, and to distract myself from moaning about my boring aggravating life XD




Note to self: Stop abusing green and brown, there are other colours in the rainbow )
Sorry, to those I owe emails and comments to, and more. I am trying to convince my mum to lend me her laptop more often until my computer arrives. Possibly be here by next week, but that's too long a wait. So, hopefully should be back to comment, reply and stick to the commitments I have, especially to Frida and Mel X_X  Best shoot off, i'll be online again as soon as I can.

my thread


Awfully egotistical is it not? *looks sheepish* But, I’m having a terrible time, been trying not to gripe, but what with my computer dying, not buying a new one because of money and indecision, still being a bit breathless when I exert myself, job hunting being really unpleasant. I also feel I lost touch with some friends when I was ill for a month, we just don’t talk anymore, and it’s getting me down. Add to that Twitter and my messengers’ being an arse and not letting me on.

I just need a hug. I hate that fandom has moved to Twitter because I can’t keep up and get to know people, and those I do know have seem to have forgotten I...

Off to sisters for a barbie and to get terribly drunk in the midday sun. Only mad dogs and Englishmen girls ;P

Sorry, I'm spamming with art again. Because of my computer problems I've been really bored, I draw a lot when bored.

I’m trying to not do a woe is me I hate my art post (again) because i don't hate it, but recently I’ve been feeling I’m missing something in my art, maybe I need to be more adventurous with what I draw, poses and perspective. This will be my new plan of attack. In addition, I was told I do ‘same face’, which bothers me more than I care to admit. So, to try and kick myself out of this low art mood I finished colouring in some old Dragon age 2 and fantasy doodles I did when I was ill.

It worked, I feel happier XD

Preview: Because theres a lot of stuff and big pictures under this here cut. And ramble, oh christ do I ramble X_X



Lots of fantasy blokes behind here..god I need to draw more ladies, not laddies X_X )
 
Though a new [livejournal.com profile] inception_bang  starts up in August, and I’m all signed to draw for [livejournal.com profile] xmenbigbang  Love, love working with writers ♥
loobee: (by your side)
I’ve been a bit quiet lately, this is due to my old fart of a computer being on its last legs. Doing art is a lesson in patience, and my god let’s not mention how much it won’t load anything without being crash central. I miss everyone I cannot gossip with because of it D: Hell I miss everyone any way D:

If you couldn’t guess I am getting into X-men fandom again (I say again, as like Star Trek, X-men is an old fandom I’m revisiting in a new package XD) Contrary to popular belief this doesn’t mean I’m suddenly going to ignore Arthur and Eames, been with them for a year now, just being terribly audacious and flirting between two pairings I love now. If I can beat my art block I should be doing more E/A with the lovely withlightning for [livejournal.com profile] ae_match  ♥

Seeing McAvoy talking about the  bromance between Xavier and Erik Lensherr, really hit to why I like this paring and that man ♥

It’s kind of a love story, like “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” which, really, was a love story between two men. This is the first time in their lives they’ve met someone who is an equal of sorts, someone who understands them and can connect and push them too. Especially Charles, he’s fascinated with Erik and his potential. For Erik, Charles is the first person he’s trusted to really tell about his past and the first person to understand the horrible things he’s been through. 


Mcfassy is proving to be adorable, they’re so comfortable in each others space, a hug and a ‘settle petal’ ♥ Och I’m in LOVE ♥ My god awful lifelong crush on McAvoy doesn’t help this at all, yes I even fancied him when he played Mr. Tumnus, and wished this Lucy could have met him too, shut up *laughs*

I am working on a X-men fic recs list. But, I have to show this instead Eric and Charles bromance in the comics part by [livejournal.com profile] ishtar79  I was scanning my comics to do this myself, but thank goodness for this as it’s awesome-er than anything I could do. Seriously this ship is too easy and i'm getting so nostalgic for my youth reading those comics XD Oh god 90's comic art is hilariously bad, the man boobs XD
loobee: (by your side)
I think I have fallen a little in love with these guys…again ♥

your frequency is pulling me in closer, till i'm home )

And, in case anyone missed it I drew Charles too in this post. And, again i'd like to pimp my Tumblr ♥
loobee: (by your side)
So saw it the other night.... *SPOILERS*

And, thought it was brilliant. Like everyone I’m enamoured of Charles and Erik’s portrayals. Both James McAvoy and Micheal Fassbender excel as Charles and Erik respectively. The first making Charles a cheery good hearted man (prone to a bit of partying) put into a position where he has to learn to lead and show the way whilst Fassbender's Erik is a bristling presence of anger, power and determination. There was such trust and tenderness flowing between the two of them, their friendship was so effective that you really do feel bad for both of them when they part ways.

In fact, Erik's distrust of humanity is served well and it's almost his film in this respect as he struggles to be the man Charles believes he can be, before being the man (villain of the piece) Sebastian Shaw has made him. A line of his late in the film is particularly telling "I've been at the mercy of good men under orders before. Never again".

Like the other X films there were maybe too many characters. I would have loved for the First Class to have more character development time, it was a bit disappointing we didn't get to know them as well as we should. Esspecially as characters like Havok and Banshee are quiet the old timers of the comics compared to Angel and Darwin.

On the other hand, I'm glad that Mystique and Hank got quite a bit of screentime. It's their relationship and interactions with the lead pair that helps illustrate how people end up on either side of the equation. Just realised that Beast was played by Skins' Nicholas Hoult, no wonder I kept thinking I recognised him, doh!

I think the main failures, if I have to think of failures, were the villains - Emma Frost was damp and poorly acted, she lacked The White Queens of the comics biting wit and sarcasm, while Kevin Bacon just didn't pop for the big bad and made a very unconvincing Shaw. It just felt to me he was playing Kevin Bacon. Most of the baddies were just relegated to henchman, but then so were Sabretooth, Toad and Juggernaut, so it again doesn't bother me too much.

I’m not sure you can call it a true prequel to the other X films, because of some continuity gafs. Beast building Cerebro, when Charles said Erik helped him build it in X1 And Charles being seen to walk when they talk to Jean Greys parents. Speaking of which, I was surprised that that was included so early in this film. I was convinced that the filmmakers would save that, and Charles being confined to his wheelchair, for a future installments. I really thought Magneto would relent at the last moment and send the missiles out to sea where they couldn't do any damage. But it was such a lovingly realised film, from the wonderful 60’s vibe, to the bromance itself ♥

Any fic recs? I’m off to trawl for Michael Fassbender and McCavoy pictures so I can get the hang of drawing them :P If anyone has pics, don’t hesitate to share them.

I did have go at drawing Charles.

X-men thoughts coming soon *geek (cough) geek* But, I thought it may make up for choosing Team Angst if I post some art *runs to hide from some of her friends on the ‘other side’ *laughs** Honestly though, I went for angst as I’m completely stuck on ideas for the fest, I know I do angst better than romance when blocked.

I embrace pain, suffering and sacrifice, and gain strength from obsession. It is true that they have given me scars that will never fade, but for that, I am grateful, because they show me what is within me, and what is within reach of me.

Hi! Remember me? *waves*

I am so sorry I haven’t been around; I rather worried some people too for going missing. About a month ago, I had a pretty bad asthma attack, I was taken to the hospital because I could hardly breathe. My own fault for working with a lot of dust at old my job (finished that non pay thing now, thank god) So, been stuck at home on a nebuliser, tired, having a hard time doing anything because you need to breath to move, and horribly bored out of my skull. I’m okay now and the doc says it was just a one off reaction and to try and avoid allergens (laughed at that because that’s impossible, what am I NOT allergic too? LOL) but yeah I’m much better and missed everyone, god I feel so shy right now, it's been so long...

Thank god for TV, Film and my Xbox for keeping me sane in these boring times though ♥

OH GOD! Dragon Age 2 owns my heart right now, stomped all over it as well. Anders you, asfhdhshs……*explodes*  Will say my thinky thoughts on it in another post, I have LOTS of them regarding that game. It’s like Red Dead Redemption, in that you become so involved with the characters you can’t help but react when things don’t go so well.

DOCTOR WHO IS AWESOME, AS ALWAYS. Nuff said ;P Tis the show that has everything I adore. And, SUPERNATUAL season ender ASFAFSAFS ♥ I think a lot of shows just have me staring at the telly with a 'Oh christ when's the next season/episode coming up? OMFG I'm going to explode!!!' face 0-0

I’m also on a serious fantasy/comic fantasy/ historical fantasy kick at the moment. I finally found the time to sit down and watch The Eagle and I LOVED IT. Roman Britain is one of my favourite historical periods. My own home town was once Roman, and I remember when I was young helping an uncle find Roman coins in the fields. It was amazing to pick them up, and to imagine the Romans who used to live there so many centuries ago. Also, I don’t know, I just have such a serious adoration for this kind of movie, where opposites start with hate and slowly become friends (and men look broody and built ♥) Jamie Bell gets to be amazing and broody, plus Tatum portrays angst and hurt VERY WELL ♥
 
Also, saw Thor which was brilliant, rather like the first Iron Man it doesn’t take itself too seriously. Plus Loki was amazing, loved that they gave him depth, and didn’t make him such a cartoon villain. Bring on X-Men First Class tomorrow night XD So excited to see Xavier and Eric’s epic love affair, and EPIC falling out on screen lol I’m going to be picky I know it, as there’s nothing I don’t know about the X-men (huge X nerd) I’m already frowning over lack of Scottish and Irish accents for Moira and Sean D: I will behave and go in with clear eyes.

I'll stop flailing like a big geek now XD

I have been drawing while I was poorly, here’s a sneak peek of things to come.

Eyebrows of doom posse... )I promise I will get replying to messages that I got as soon as I can. Forgive me if I’m a bit slow. I’m still rather shattered. So off to bed right now, will catch up tomorrow and reply then ♥

There are too many people I adore that I may miss on there, so I want to say it here. I LOVE YOU ALL ♥♥♥

I sort of burst out crying when I read what people had to say about me. I'd gotten so used to convincing myself that people didn't like me, well this goes to show I'm an idiot of GODZILLA proportions. THANK YOU ;_; -♥

I also realised reading it how much people don't really seem to know me, or I don't know them as much as i'd love to. So I thought i'd do that thing again where I throw myself at your mercy. ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT ME OR EVEN MY ART, ASK AWAY?

Also, urm if anyone wants to talk or keep in touch, this is my contact info.

I want to thank the lovely [livejournal.com profile] darjeelinger  for picking me to work with, it’s been great fun listening to her ideas, and she’s been really brilliant. She came up with some wonderful creative ways to pull at poor Eames’ mind, which really the whole picture was about. I’m fascinated by the idea of a forger, who really shouldn’t need a totem, loosing himself to dreams. It's wonderful twisty read, thank you so very much sweetheart ♥

Title: The Road Less Travelled
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Rating: PG
Notes: It’s been ABSOLUTELY brilliant working with [livejournal.com profile] butterflythread. I was so happy when she claimed my art and I love the direction she took my original prompt, it was like the clash of a bad TV program ‘WHEN GAME GEEKS COLIDE’. She’s been so patient with me, especially when I was unable to be around as much as I wanted. Thank you Nellie, you’re awesome, and I hope we get to team up more. I also want to thank [livejournal.com profile] platina  and [livejournal.com profile] weatherfront  for being amazing cheerleaders when it came to the art. Because it’s based on the game Fallout 3, I went completely comic book style with the new art to reflect that universe more, it was so much fun. The original prompt was for a much darker idea, so I’m glad we went lighter.

Thank you so much for looking, and I hope you like it. beware of the huge pictures I have under the cut, may take time to load.

Oh, my god please let 3 weeks go by as fast as James Bonds cracks at the ladies. Work is so tiring as soon as I got home yesterday I did nothing but sleep ;_; I want to art but I feel so burnt out of late ;_;

Actually leaving my list of art to do here as I’m terribly forgetful, its things I said I would do, so if I missed anything just poke me.

1. Piece for one of [livejournal.com profile] celestialangel ’s stories
2. The dogs of Inception (may do a post at the weekend, as this is about all the dogs (and cats) that people have introduced in fic, JZ, Sonny,Sammy,Cigar Dogtag ect) felt like doing something fun with pets.
3. VERY belated birthday pic for [livejournal.com profile] five_ht  asfgsfagsds!!!!!!
4. Eames in the chauffeur hat from 'Juice Box' fic for Nancy
5. Vampire Arthur for [livejournal.com profile] ilovetakahana  
6. ABSOLUTELY SELF INDULGENT (for me as well) zombie/Death Proof/Deathrace 2000 A/E fighting on car picture for Nellie ♥

Will get round to all that once I stop feeling so knackered. May take a wee break after my R!BB though to recharge, i'm getting old you know *laughs* 

[livejournal.com profile] ruric  hun, I was wondering if you got my email? I’m just seeing how you’re doing with the fic, and if all is okay your end. Sorry I’m so behind on stuff, but I haven’t heard from you in an age so I really hope things aren’t too stressful for you ♥

I’m so, so scared for the R!BB posting. I’ve only done Nellie extra art because I didn’t get the other fics in time to draw for them, and I feel absolutely awful about that. I hope the guys forgive me, and I’ll be sure to draw art after as a massive thank you ♥

CRIT POST: Because all I am mentioning is art, I would like to open myself up to crit on that. Last time I had one only 2 people give me crit (and very useful it was too) so I’m just saying don’t be afraid, and if you think there’s anything I could improve on or need to keep my eye on just tell me. I know I do tend to get carried away with drawing too much fabric on my clothes, plus I’m the world’s most lazy painter XD

This is for the lovely [livejournal.com profile] delires  is a absolute darling, and wrote a fic to go with this piece, Burning Bright. Absoloutely 100% tiger themed, and with drunk Arthur for good meassure ♥

ONE ART BLOCK SUGGESTION DOWN, SO MANY MORE TO GO! OH GOD 6 DAYS TILL R!BB POSTING *colours like a banshee and panics*

I must vanish now to get ready for my 'I don't get paid, man this blows' work tomorrow. I don't want to go as it means my net time is so cut down, i'll miss you all though *sobs*
loobee: (Default)
1. I am not going to be around much in the next few weeks, as I have to do another 4-week volunteer job thing. I’m going to be so behind on the R!BB’s because of it, I’m officially the slowest reader EVER. I’m also the worst R!BB partner ever, I really need to get back in touch with everyone before I get bogged down in work.

2. But I wanted to thank everyone who left a comment on the JFC ILU meme in the last post. I wish I could say how much I flipping love you guys, but words would never be enough. You are the most awesome friends, and you make my sad days just shine, I’m happy to know you all ♥ I LOVE YOU FLIST ♥♥♥

3. I’m also going through a horrible art block again. SO WOULD LIKE TO ASK... NAY BEG FOR ART IDEAS. Anything you would like to see me draw, fics I could illustrate, ANYTHING!! I already have clowns and cowboys suggested to me, but still have this god-awful block, I get sad when I can’t draw or come up with cool images in my head. And, I do have a picture for [livejournal.com profile] celestineangel  to do too. HELP ME BEAT THIS ;_;

4. In addition, to bore you a little while more. I’ve been cleaning out my art folders, and thought I’d post some art I don’t think I’ll ever finish, but I actually liked the ideas behind them.

What's in box number 4 Bob? )

I know I should be on hiatus, but just have to say FUCK my new computer! *pardon my French* It's fans sound like a jet engine, so I can't hear anything, I just got the blue screen of death, and my browser crashes.

I can't even share in the love of the Warrior trailer, (fucking hell he could lift me with just one of those arms, UNF!!) because I have to pack this evil thing up so my sisters boyfriend can have a look.

I should just never be allowed to do anything lately, because I break EVERYTHING. Computers, alienating myself in fandom, being too scared to go back on Twitter, being too nervous to flail with fun people, life in general. I just want to cry. If my life had a face I would punch it D: Tomorrow i'll go lay in the sun, and wish life had a reset button I could push.

I NEED A HUG ;_; And just to be a little self centered.


Oh thank god the R!BB's start on sunday, I get some amazing art and fics to cheer me the hell up ♥

I caved to the Dave ;_; This wee beastie will arrive in a few days. You have to admire a machine called 'THE DECIMATOR' If I vanish you know it’s because I’m stuck wondering how to fit the cards in what slots, blown it up, or that i've got a hold of Dragon Age 2 to play on it  XD Sat now trying to save everything to my external drive, because if I lose my art and fanfic folders I will cry tears of blood. The Dave is envious as I'll have 6 cores over his 2 *bwahahahaha*

I better remember to save my R!BB art 0_0

Oh, I posted some art to [livejournal.com profile] cherrybina's Inception kink fest (so waiting for a free day to read EVERYTHING, because my god it's full of awesome.) I couldn’t resist drawing [livejournal.com profile] seraphinhunter's military/uniform kink prompt though. Only posted it yesterday, but thought i'd post it here too before I have to change computers and vanish.

we're in the army now )

I think my style is changing a lot lately, or maybe I need new specs? I'm slowly crawling closer to drawing full on porn, almost, YES I DO KNOW THEY NEED TO BE MORE NEKID FOR THAT *laughs*. Though, I really wish I was faster at drawing, I guess I’m not because I always do a lot of detail in my art, but I'd SO love to draw a comic sometime  ♥

I don't think I've been this excited in quite a while ♥

I’m still not getting notifs, and everything is dying, bloody nora LJ X_X
