Now that the masterlist has been posted at [community profile] sgareversebang, I'm free to repost my art. I know some of you have already seen it, back when I linked to the post at [community profile] sgareversebang, but I wanted to post it in my journal as well. The small version definitely loses something in the ensmallening, so be sure to check out the full version after the cut tag.

I intend to do a dvd-commentary at some point, which seems like it'll be a lot of work, but fun. Also, I don't tyipcally name my art, unless it goes with a story and then it usually gets the story name attached. This challenge was unique in that the artists created their art and then stories were written based on the artwork. Part of the process in submitting the art was naming it, so I chose the title from the Vangelis song. (Because I love Blade Runner and there's a lot of green in it, people. Yes, I'm lame. :D)

Title: Memories of Green
Medium: Photoshop collage
Notes: Beta: [personal profile] gblvr. The colors and themes for this picture were inspired by the covers of old sci-fi novels. This is probably the single most labor-intensive art project I've ever worked on, with the most layers (over 100), changes (basic composition changed at least 5 times), tweaks (eww, how did I not notice that before?) and mutations (unexpected but happy surprises). But in the end, it's my favorite project as well.

My SGA Reverse Big Bang artwork has been posted, yay! You can see my art here, along with its companion story. I ended up naming it Memories of Green after the Vangelis song from Blade Runner. Mostly because I'm lame and there's a lot of green in it. I'll post the full art here once the master list has gone up at the SGA Reverse Bang community. If you like SGA, go check out all the amazing art and stories and tell everybody what a great job they did.

I beat my laptop back into working order so I could finish my SGA Reverse Big Bang preview, but the laptop still insists there's a stuck key when there's not. I think the keyboard's just dead. As long as it boots and lets me use a USB keyboard, I don't care (I take my netbook everywhere, so my laptop stays at home and gets used for the things my netbook can't do).

As stress relief from working on the RBB picture, I tested out some new brushes I downloaded. This was the result:

J claims to have gotten an eye injury from looking at it, but that can't possibly be true.

Art betas? Please?

I swear it doesn't look like this:

If you're worried that your eyes will bleed, please see past artwork:

SGA Big Bang 2009
SGA Big Bang 2008

(If your eyes still bleed, I apologize. :D)

Can I get some art betas up in the hizz-ouse? For my SGA Reverse Big Bang art? It's fairly finished, but I wanted a few people to check it out and see what they think.

If you're not familiar with SGA Reverse Big Bang, the artists go first and the authors write stories based on the art.

So I'm free to make any old thing I want. This is not my SGA-RBB art, but it could have been:


Army Squirrels. Atlantean Elephant Defense Force. Strategic Indian Corn Projectiles.

(Also? First post to Dreamwidth after having the account forever. I'm totally moving over here because I've had enough of LJ's shenanigans. Their stupid outboundlink crap is making me crazy.)
