Another promotional poster

Liz_Leia_BRBWaiting for final Legion approval on this one, but it should be alright.  Our base membership is.. well, kinda dismal and we’re looking for more members. We only have about a dozen costumers to call on across the state, and not everyone can always take time off to volunteer.

New Web Banners

500x150_RPX Conference

 

A few days apart.

I’m working on turning the rainbow deer into an illustrator file, and it’s coming along pretty well. I had a few requests to turn it into a print, so that’s exciting.

So far, I’ve sold three copies of my Midna Instructions PDF. I’m thinking of lowering the price to see if I’ll get more sales.

I did another thing – Rebel Legion

Blue_Ridge_banner_Darinus

A new Jedi Knight member of Blue Ridge Base/Rebel Legion asked for a sig banner, so I made him one.  The Darth Vader is a 501st member – he’s not from a movie screen shot.  “Darinus” is an OC, with a cape instead of a robe in grey tones and a purple lightsaber.  He’s only got the one costume so far, but when he gets more I’ll update his banner be animated.  Though, now that I’ve said that, I’m tempted to go back and animate a glow on the sabers and make them vibrate a little.

The right round logo says “Nexus Temple” – all Jedi are automatically members so we all get to use that logo in addition to the BRB logo.

I’m amusing myself again.

BestPilotMeme

 

Made this for a friend.  Heard about Ford’s on set accident, looked it up, went to Wikipedia and found out he is an honest-to-god helicopter pilot and really has personally saved a couple of lives.  Pretty awesome, actually. My husband’s alternate title was “is actually a pilot”.

Tropical Storm web banner

More web work for work. We like the ‘ominous’ look for hurricane season.  I’m currently working on my annual duty of cranking out 2 versions of animations for every storm name so they’ll be ready before hand, ‘tropical storm’ and ‘hurricane’.

I did this thing also

I like getting to do pretty web banners. I’ve said it before, but it’s a nice break from the on-air format.

More friend requests for ‘shopping

Posted by in Art, cosplay, costumes | No Comments

Danielle on fire

For whatever reason ‘fire’ keeping getting requested.

I threw this together for my friend Danielle in about 30 minutes. I think she’ll be pleased. Still, I wish I could get people to give me original files instead of just the facebook upload photos.  The bottom-most layer isn’t really good enough for facial details, but I think it works overall.  I ended up just leaving the bushes behind her green just to leave a counter-color opposite all the reds.

Once again, going for kind of a ‘book cover’ sort of feel.

Danielle is Sorsha here, from Willow.

Godzilla and Friends

Godzilla_and_Friends

My best friend has been bugging me to make her a ‘badass’ photoshop ever since she saw the Jedi confronting the Balrog. So I spent five minutes on this and posted it to her facebook wall.

I’ll make her something nicer soon, but she and her husband (right) will get a kick out of it anyway.

More fun with Lightsabers

Mara_Book

 

My second take on this ‘stalking pose’ from the Star Wars informal photoshoot day on May 17th. I had played with it once, tweaked it, and then ultimately slapped myself on a free existing downloadable background.

I jacked up the lightsaber glow effects, fixed a few lighting issues and probably added an extra filter or two. Overall, I’m happy with it. I really wish the original photo hadn’t come out blurry, but I think it works alright for the ‘book cover’ type effect that I’m going for here.

I love wearing my Mara.
