watercolours, pencils, indian inkNotes:
This is a commission for my dear, lovely, excessively classy cluegirl
, so no stealing of the art for your own usage, please!
Clue is working on a book of her original poems and song lyrics, with accompanying illustrations from a variety of artists (of which I am one!). She gave me free reign to choose whichever of her poems inspired me, and I came across this smile-inducing, sun-shiney poem of hers called "Liberty Dances
". As soon as I read it, this image instantly popped into my mind. It was a pleasure to work on. ^_^( liberty dances )
I am really looking forward to seeing Clue's finished book, it promises to be a very unique, eclectic mix of poetry and artwork. Teh awesome. :DAlternative LJ link
So like.... you know how I said I was totally going to draw some full on Merlin/Arthur smut eventually?
keep my promises. ;DTitle:
NC-17, not worksafe (SRSLY, you guys xD)Medium:
Open Canvas, used photo refs for their faces.
This piece of superfluous filth was inspired by an AMAZING delicious fic I read a couple of weeks ago called No Magic Necessary
. I don't know why it hit me so hard, but this fic pushed a hell of a lot of my buttons in one go... while I was reading it at work! Whoops...
Thank you to draykonis
for her continual moral support whilst I was working on it. :D( Merthur smut!! )
Follow The LightFandom:
Ink, watercolours, pencilsNotes:
So today was son_of_darkness
's birthday party (fancy dress theme: fairytales!) and for his present, I drew this for him. :D Kye was pestering me for Merlin saves Arthur with magic, and Arthur sees!
art, and... this is the first half of that I guess. :D
Just imagine that dazed, injured Arthur turns his head to look blearily at Merlin, only to stare in amazement at the glowy magic ball that he recognises from when he was rescued in the cave with the Mortius flower. He looks from the glowy ball to Merlin's intense focus on the ball, realises what this means.... and passes out from blood loss. :D
Dun dun DUN!!!( follow the light )

All I Need Is Your CooperationPairing:
This was my contribution to the 2008 hd_holidays
fest, a gift for the luvly jubbly ravenna_c_tan
! I was nervous that this picture wouldn't be kinky enough for her, but she seems to have been happy with it. *beams*
It's Auror!Harry and Prisoner!Draco, with bondage, nekkid, and total abuse of authority. \o/ Thank you very much to nefyr
for his crazy supply of gay porn and all his helpful suggestions. :D
Enjoy!( harry/draco smutz )
Thank you to all you lovely people who left comments on the HD Hols post when the art was still anonymous. :D Who knew the armband and Auror coat would be so popular? xD I am particularly flattered that people in the HD Hols guessing polls
thought my art might have been drawn by sherant
, or red_rahl
. Awesome. *smugface*

House Unity, The SecondPairing:
This was my contribution to the smutty_claus
fest of 2008. My recepient was i_octopus
. :D :D :D I had fun designing these next gen characters, as I'm not really into them at all - they're non-entities to me, LOL. I also made an attempt to go back to the more elaborate background that I used to do back in the day. :D Thanks a bunch to cluegirl
for her beta advice. ♥( rose/scorpius )
Thank you immensely to everyone who reviewed the art when it was still anonymous during the fest. :DDDDD I was really surprised so many people enjoyed it, as the pairing was a challenge for me. So much love for fandomers and their generosity. ♥

And my totally amazing and unique Snape/Hermione gift fic was written by the incomparable florahart
!!!!!! *leaps for joy* I knew it would be a big hit; I saw that it was rec'ed all over my flist. And rightly so!!!! For those who haven't read it, I highly recommend, even for those who are not very interested in the Snape/Hermione pairing, this story will make you believe it is possible. :DSeven Year Hitch
, by florahart
. Best ever!!!!
Room 2: Occupied (xDDD I know, lame, I'm sorry)Fandom:
House M.D. 8DDD!!!!!Pairing:
This is birthday gift art for sillyshy
, and also a thank you for the paid time and extra icons she got me for my
birthday, heee. Lou originally asked me to draw her some Jared/Jensen, but I was a failboat and couldn't manage it, so she suggested House/Wilson instead...
And this thing happened in 3 hours, flat. xD Yayyy. I feel all fuzzy and happy, drawing House/Wilson again - I've only done so once before, in October 2005! :O I don't think I've improved a great deal, oops. My semirealism technique is still crap. xD
Anyway, enjoy. :D( house/wilson! )

So, who on my flist is going to Comic Con 2009 straight after Azkatraz?? :D
I wasn't intending to go since I'm not into comics at all, but I've been told it's got lots of non-comic fandoms represented too, and that it's outrageously huge and well funded with big name special guests and stuff. I'd be kicking myself if I let such a convenient opportunity pass me by, but I'd only go if someone(s) would like to accompany me, share a room etc., visit the con events and doss around exploring the city inbetween.
So, anyone wanna go with me? :3
*shuffles feet, twiddles thumbs*
Slipping Into Dangerous TerritoryPairing:
NC-17, oh yeah!Warnings:
NWS, implied other pairings, "solo" 5th year Harry, as the snarry_games
mods so delicately phrased it. *grin*Medium:
Indian ink & watercoloursNotes:
My third time in the snarry_games
! :D And once again, I did a sequential piece. Thanks a million to my fellow Team Phoenix members, thanks to the mods, and special love and hugs to cluegirl
for her invaluable advice and beta help. ♥
My prompts were "canon", "back to the wall", and "dangerous games". I LOVE OotP!Snarry, and I feel that somewhere, one of JKR's pre-edited drafts of OotP contained just such a scene as this. :P( snarry! )
Because the art is NC-17, you will have to join snarry_games
to see it.
NC-17, not worksafe! Nudity and very mild bondage.Notes:
Another commission for the lovely jubbly melusinahp
! Despite the title, this isn't chan - Harry's meant to be 17, and aroused against his will. :D I had a lot of fun working on this, and I tried out a different, softer method of colouring. Am relatively pleased with the results. :D( little boy )
God, I haven't posted art since JULY. It feels good to be back in my artsy groove. :D I've also got snarry_games
done and dusted, but of course I can't post those yet..... :P
Hi guys! :D So, Azkatraz. Crashing on people's floor/couch/kitchen table for a week after the con, yes yes? *blinks hopefully*
I intend to arrive on (I think) 15th July in the company of the lovely son_of_darkness
. We intend to stay at the frightfully pricey con hotel for the duration of all the fun fandomy events, which I believe end on 21st July.
Is there anyone who lives in San Fran and would be willing to let me stay with them for the week after the con? I've never been to America before, and I would love to have the opportunity to do some sight seeing and shopping with local people (LOL, local), and just generally have fun hanging out. :3
For the time being, I'm planning to stay for one week in SF after Azkatraz before heading back home to London. I haven't really thought about visiting other cities/states, and to be frank, I don't want to waste time on icky long road trips. But.... no absolute fixed plans yet, so you never know. :D It depends on who'd be willing to let me crash and do silly touristy things with me. :DDDDDD
So.... Any takers? *hopeful smile* Just to give a brief description of me: I am a teetotaler, and I eat vegetarian & seafood. I'm really a very nice house guest, I promise. :D
(x-posted to LJ)
Oh my god, you guys!!!!I AM COMING TO AZKATRAZ!!!!!!!!
I have permission from the parents! It is official! Insha Allah, if I can raise the money and nothing detrimental occurs,
*bouncing off the walls*
Where's my muppet flail icon when I need it!!!!
I am EXTREMELY DISTERSSED. T_T
So my Flickr account has been locked down because I have too much smut art on it.
My Photobucket account has been stripped of all its smutty content.
I've reverted to a free account on LJ so I have no LJ Scrapbook.
And my website is STILL being a giant turd and not letting me hotlink pictures - I don't know whether it's an unfixable problem or if my webmistress is just not doing anything about it (because I have asked her about this several times).
I have NOWHERE to store ANY art. EVERY SINGLE ONE of my hotlinks are BROKEN.
WHAT THE FUCK. *cries emo tears*
Is there someone who is good with techy website stuff to see if they can fix the hotlinking issue? I use dreamhost. Pleeeeease? D:ETA:
My website hotlinking problems are no more! alchemia
is a genius! ♥ ♥ ♥ Lots of my URLs are still dead, but thank god something is working at least!
commissioned me to draw the characters from her very interesting-sounding gay-themed original novel The League of the Green Carnation
. :D The novel is set in a men's college in 1900-1910 America, I believe, and I had awfully good fun with the costumes in this piece. :D I attempted to photoshop the picture to give it an old photograph look... with debateable results. xD But hey, I
thought it looked neat!Title:
League of the Green CarnationRating:
Open Canvas, PhotoshopNotes:
As per the usual rules, do NOT use this art without anthimaeria
's permission first. :)( green carnation )
The characters are:
- Thomas Ardesco
(with black hair & goatee), the impatient grumpy Professor who's not as gay as he thinks he is.
- Celeste Douglas
(with massive flowery hat), the romantic, emotionally messy dreamer who aspires to be an actress.
- Sebastian Clay
(with blonde curly hair), the athletic, priveleged student who tries to live up to his family's expectations.
- Phineas Lofting
(with brown hair, laying in the grass), the intelligent, working-class student who has his head in the clouds.raitala
also drew some really awesome portraits of the characters here
commissioned me to draw gift portraits of Peter Howe
and Sevan Stephan
, the actors who currently play Sam and Gimli (respectively) in the Lord of the Rings
musical at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane.
Tonight is the closing night of the show, which I'm sorry to hear because I went to see it 2 weeks ago (courtesy of wildfyre
♥!), and I thought it was fantastic. :D wildfyre
will be presenting the portraits (framed!) to the actors after their closing show this very evening, which is awfully exciting! I hope she takes photos. :DCharacter:
Gimli (Sevan Stephan
ink, watercolours, and colour pencils( gimli )Character:
Samwise (Peter Howe
ink, watercolours, and colour pencils( samwise )
Sam was definitely my favourite character in the musical. :D He and Frodo sing a song to each other, and it's so ridiculously slashy and precious, I could have wept with joy. :3 Behold, this clip which shows a snippet of the song: Squee
On The ProwlCharacter:
This is a commission for the awesometastic tbranch
. As per the usual rules, do NOT use this art without his permission first. :D This was a challenge to draw, as Pansy is a character I have rarely drawn. Yay challenges!( on the prowl )
In other news, I am leaving to go to Bangladesh in a couple of weeks! I am ridiculously excited, and also apprehensive as there will be no TV, and internet will be sporadic at best. *wails* How shall I cope!???! xD
