Ahh, there's nothing like finding some new and interesting to work on to break up the more casual stuff. Plus it's also a reason to finally update my journal.
Two are actually Avatar-related. Yep, while the movie has been out for ages and I've had an inspired journal CSS for a while now (that keeps bugging out of me so I apologize if it displays crap on some monitors, damn HTML volatility) I'm only now finally doing some serious hommage to it that I'm sure will make everyone happy
The first will probably be my next deviation, something really cool that I've been working on for ages already and is nearing completion by now. But since it's coming soon I might as well not ruin the surprise, but my first fan-art for it will be something that surely would make jaws hit keyboards and make up for the long delay, and I don't say that much, so I'm speaking out of excitement and a little bit of pride I must admit
The second is something more for myself, being a real-life thing best appreciated in person. But is actually the one I'm more excited about doing for that reason alone. I've had my aquarium for almost 5 years now and during that time I was happy conforming to the "fake reef" look that I've sometimes seen in other aquariums and is vividly colourful. But times have changed and my creativity has grown since then, so the tank will be getting a makeover!
Most present decorations that have now faded and been stained by algae over the years will be replaced with something a little more...Bioluminescent (try saying that ten times!) I'm giving the tank and avatar theme too. To some it may be a fandom gone too far, but to me it's because I just love shiny glowy vegetation, and also the interest and well-designed aquarium brings to the room. So that's been my top priority lately as I regularly buy all kinds of fake tropical and alien-like plants, as well as blue submersible lights and maybe glowing gravel off ebay in preparation for the dramatic change that my brother referred to as "Pimp my Tank"
But I have another damn house move ahead so I likely won't be setting it up too soon, I gotta wait for the stuff I bought on ebay to arrive anyway. But one thing I can work on meanwhile is making a custom background for the aquarium that if it looks "artistic" enough I may post here, it'll be the neon forest scene and I hope I can find a place that prints large images, Anyway, photo's may come if I can get one decent enough but being a long way off from completion I wouldn't hold your breath
The third isn't something started by me personally but I may enjoy contributing to it, though I'm not sure if the original artist wants the idea promoted yet before it's started so I'm not going to say what. But I will just say it will be inspiration and maybe even fun for anyone interested in the space-art genre, so of course I volunteered to be a contributor after being pre-selected
And so that's it, I guess these things will gradually be done and released over time, it at least gives me stuff to think about and look forward to
