*Sneeze*

It's that time of year when we start to feel antsy and waffle back and forth about what it is we want to do, work on, etc. There will be some major overhauls to our dA site, to this journal, possibly even to a website, as 2011 gets rolling. There's also going to be some interesting overhauls in our lives that we'll address to you at a later time when things are more confirmed.

For Christmas, Blyss's wonderful parents have decided to grace us with the extended set of warm and cool grey Copics so that we can finally present pieces rendered in the grey tones. They've also found it fit to present Carla with a Copic Tracepad. If you haven't seen one, I suggest you look.

I'd like to share something with you now, so that you can see what  a difference colors can make to a piece.

Icon Meme, Art Ramble, Complaint Ramble. O_o

Meme Fun First! 

Icons chosen by spankingfemme 

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.

4. This will create a never-ending cycle of Icon Squee!

1.

My Roy/Donna Titans Year One Icon <3 Made for a friend and my's private RPG Titans: 'Til Hell Freezes Over. I didn't much like Roy/Donna when I started out but they've grown on me, especially as old lovers still friends. This kiss was just so sweet and so outside of shenanigans I use it for sweet moments. <3

2.

More Titans: 'Til Hell Freezes Over - Roy/Dick. If I'm not mistaken this was Theban's art - made into an icon on someone's journal. Not sure if Theban approves or not. Used for private RP fun since we're shipping Roy/Dick a little heavily there. I thought that the sweetness in the two men suited to snuggling Titans. I think the original art featured Sirius and Remus - if I am remembering the image correctly from my days in the Harry Potter Fandom.

3.

My Axel/Owen icon. Made as therapy. Both images are from the issue where Owen dies. I scanned and cropped them together, blinding the background with the tears still on my cheeks. The title: Rogues Goin' Rogue was applicable to my mood at the time. I've always liked Owen and Axel leaning on one another, and I wanted them both to get out of the dark-spiraling team they were in. In RR - it seemed like Axel had realized how in over his head he'd been and Owen was already out. In the fanfiction and private spousal RP logs I'd never post or share we covered them fracturing from the Rogues. It was painfully sweet and I adored it. I've kept the icon, even since distancing myself from the fandom.

4.

Deathstroke is such a pervert. :) The man's obsession with Dick, the general WTF of his actions/overtones with Rose. Maybe I read in to him too much but he definitely seems wrong on a variety of levels. This light-hearted version of that - used to squick some friends, was in tribute to that and is just for fun.

5.

My favorite icon. Harvey Dent/Matt Murdock. I've had this icon for years. They rank of with Roy/Dinah as my main two  OTPs.(is that an oxymoron? main -two- OTPs?)  I didn't even believe in OTPs until I got them.  I use this icon for just about anything as an excuse to have it up. I don't think I could easily explain the circumstances around the spouse and I and the RP that lead to this being so important to us both but, it's the reason why there's a huge poster of Daredevil on the door to our bedroom, taking up a massive amount of space.

I don't like the Daredevil comics much. I did actually like the movie. All AMrvel fans are welcome to throw things - but I've liked most of Marvel's movies and hated the comics. I'm not sure why. Preference I'd assume. I love Two-Face as a character. The B:TAS version made me root for the badguy back when I was a kid and I've always had a thing for scars. When I was five I asked my mommy if I could be branded like the pretty people in the picture book (some interesting tribe somewhere). I used to pour wax over my skin, hot enough to make little red welts appear because I thought it was too smooth. Weird I know, but Two-Face really interested me because of his scars. :D To each their own, right? 

Icon listing was fun. :D

Christmas Cards! 10 Day Challenge, Nanowriomo update!

I'm going to cross post what I posted on dA for those of you more active over here. If you are interested in receiving a Christmas card featuring some of our art, or would like to exchange Christmas cards this year please private message me so we can exchange the necessarily information. Yes we will ship overseas. Since I don't know how long that will take, I'm mailing them out as early as possible, but that does not mean that they will necessarily arrive on time. (Given the holiday mailing situation here, the US based ones may not arrive on time either, but I hope they will.) 

Current Nanowrimo wordcount? 16538

Art update! Nanowrimo! Life!

Blyssie here guys with a large update on a bunch of things. I'm going to be doing Nanowrimo this year! I did it and completed it in 2008 with a novella called Rat and Spider. This year I'll be working on a modern fairytale I'm calling 'Seven Tears' for a WIP title. I'll be dropping my wordcounts here periodically throughout the month.
We spent a rather fun weekend doing a three hour trail hike. We found some lovely caves, here's Carla before one of them.

And we've also got an update on the inking processes of our massive TtDM piece:

Ilness Updates

I think everyone I RP with, chat with, and owe art to at least read this. My dad has had his so-called 'summer cold' that Carla and I both have diagnosed as walking pnuemonia. Carla's going to be going to her own doctor tomorrow to get her diagnosis verified because she really needs to be resting and not at work so we're both going to be out of contact with people for the next few days while I take care of my dad and her and try not to let my own symptoms progress beyond where they are already.

Thanks for the patience guys, we'll get back to you as soon as we can.

WTF: Summer cold - I HATE YOU.

 

That is all.

 

...

Yes BOTH of us. >_< We do share germs quite often. ^_^

Edit: Carla went to work today (9/21/2010) I don't think she should have. I'm not planning on coming out of bed until I can breathe.

Hair?

So last night Carla and I dyed my hair black for no real given reason, but the outcome is kinda cool.

Crappy, necessary webcam shot:
