Trying That Plan Thing

I think one of the things I’ve been struggling with (especially when it comes to fulfilling my “post twice” a week goal) is a lack of proper planning. Back in the day it was super easy for me to just plan out topics for interest areas and keep going from there. I haven’t really made myself sit down to do that (granted it was in my private outline in how to achieve said goal because that’s apparently recommendations for people trying to follow through on goals). And I think it comes down to more than just motivation. I’m motivated, yeah, but I haven’t been very disciplined. Now, I’m going to caveat this to say that I’ve actually have been writing privately, regularly, just not here in the public forum and space. I think it’s because I’m not so mindful of what I’m writing when it’s in private, but in public, I’m feeling a lot more conscientious. read more

Andraste

I am beginning a much needed four day weekend. I thought I’d start it out right by finishing a few pieces and started with this one. No special story to go with it, I’m kind of not in the creative writing mood, but I’m pretty happy with this one. I’m thinking of doing a few more renders with this character (will see if I actually carry said renders to the completion line). I’m also seemingly in a monotone mood. Probably because we’ve been grey and dusky every single evening this week? read more

Last Dance

And, yes, I finished it. I’m actually really happy with this piece and that it finally captured what I had in my head.

She dances with playful dragons.

So, a few facts, the main part of this image is composed and rendered in Daz|Studio using Iray. And then I photoshopped the rest (background, a few effects, color blend changes, etc). This also has become my first uploaded piece at my new DeviantART profile. read more

Quiet Weekend

Beyond taking care of the normal everyday things, we haven’t done a whole lot this weekend. I’ve been updating programs and working on a few things to spare. We haven’t had a day of just sitting around with no obligations or getting distracted with being out of the house. The puppies are even being lazy today and not continuing to fight over toys/bones (Luna does not share and will horde all of them between her paws from Tyr). read more
