Getting ready for Seasonal Spuffy this year was a test as I’m still having significant back problems and have been on the computer almost not at all for a number of months. (It’s a whole new world!! And I miss the old one.) :-)

I was able to complete some manips, but was unable to do much with the finished products My apologies and I hope you enjoy them as they stand.

In other news, I did buy tickets for WriterCon 09, have reserved a room and have looked over the list of others who are definitely attending. I’d love to know who else is thinking of joining the fun.

I hope everyone is well. *hugs*

Other Skies, Other Worlds

Thank you so much for all the wonderful comments! I’ll reply to each, of course, but a general hug to everyone who took a moment to let me know they like my stuff.

Title: Other Skies, Other Worlds
Rating: PG. Worksafe.
Medium: Fan art, manip
Base: Spike base is a promo shot from Eragon; Buffy base is the art piece Red Sonja by the fantastically talented Donato Giancola. I sure would love to find more bases for fantasy-ish females that don’t have boobs bigger than their heads and are actually wearing clothing!
Other pairings: None
Warning: Most of my stuff is big and may bog down dial up users.

My Posting Day

RL has been a complete bugger for me the last couple of months (the stillbirth of my grandson, the deaths of an uncle and cousin, my mother’s rapidly declining health topped off by our most hectic time of the year at work) and I was nervous about getting some pics done for today, my posting day. I’m very glad to have finished a few and though they don’t follow the comedy theme, I hope you enjoy them.

Title: None
Rating: G. Completely worksafe.
Medium: Fan art; manip
Base: Photo of Sarah Michelle Gellar and Seth Green from the recent cast reunion.
Other pairings: None

Last Post for Me

I’m kind of bummed that the quality of the bases for this one were not the best, ’cause I think this dress is unbelievably gorgeous. And timeless. Still, I enjoyed working with this piece, and hope you like it as well.

Thanks for letting me take part this year! :-)

And there’s still more…

Two banners with similar coloring – an autumn theme I had thought to use for all my seasonal_spuffy pieces, but abandoned when I decided I wanted a bit more variety.

Under the Stairs is the first time I’ve used a screen shot of Buffy & Spike together for a piece of fan art. I like that you can’t really see their faces, but if you’re a fan of the pairing, you immediately recognize the scene. And for me, of course, it’s kind of Journeys related. :-)

Yup, me again.

This post is a bit of a cheat, because, in a slightly different version, I have posted the bride magazine piece before at my journal. But, in all honesty, it’s among my personal favorites of the Spike/Buffy pieces I’ve done, and I wanted it to be part of this community. (I’m so bad like that – a real rebel. *snort*) And yeah, even though you can’t see him, Spike is all over this piece.

Strong Hearts is new and, like so many of my pieces, big. :-) Main texture by uglybusiness.

Enjoy!

Second Post

I know that this is not an All Human AU community, and that vamps aren’t supposed to be able to have kids. But I figure – Hey! If Angel and Darla could manage it, Buffy and Spike could, too. If you’re of the school that doesn’t buy into our favorite couple having kids, just enjoy how comfortable they look with each other, and pretend they’re babysitting!

Two versions, just for fun. I also have blank versions of these and am happy to personalize them for anyone who is interested – say, for a baby fic? :-)

Textures by awmp, Shady Medusa, Black Lagoon, Exchanged stock, Lunestas, Plumerri, Lee Textures, Vampkiss, Oxoniensis art and Resurgere.

Seasonal Spuffy is Open for Business!

Yikes – it’s the 15th and my day (along with our hostess, ). I’ve never had a posting day at a com before, and I’m excited about taking part.

For my first post, I’m sharing the banner I made for the comm, and which the members kindly chose as the winner. :-) I’ve made a couple of icons to match, snaggable by anyone who would like to use them on their posting day. (Icons are kind of a bugger for me to make, so I hope they’re usable!)

I also have this banner in a blank version, and am happy to personalize it for anyone who would like to use it for their LJ, their website, or a fic.
