Art Wishlist, Doctor Who, and other updates
Wow I have a blog don't I?!
Sorry for forgetting about this for so long. Been very busy.
-Huzzah for Netflix! Have watched all kinds of things, like some episodes of Monk I somehow never saw, the glory of the original A-Team (etc.), Battlestar Galactica (both versions), in progress of watching episodes here and there from every series of Star Trek (never did get to see all the originals -- woot!), and most recently going through Doctor Who.
-Some of the Dr. Who villains (and such) are so cool I've decided to do LDDE MOCs of them for the heck of it. Work in progress, I'll probably post 'em in a topic once I finish the series (new version; I'll go to the original show later). Some are modifications of (mini-fig scale) MOCs others have already made, found online (like the Dalek, but I've got an opened version too and both versions are a little more accurate. Anywho, wait and see ).
-So, I finally realized what was up with the BZP profile feeds and "updates" thingamabob, which I'd entirely forgotten about. I've decided to use the "update" (the one thing that actually displays, one message at a time, on the profile main page) to report progress on my Bionicle history retelling, for those that keep asking me over and over. Here's my profile:
I'll try to update this about once a week or maybe more.
-I hope to get it done VERY soon 'cuz it's obvious a lot of you are looking forward to it, and I've had a lot of fun with it so far. Of course, realistically, "very" is defined as "sometime before New Year's".
-No, S&T contest hasn't been forgotten about. It's just that for purposes of something in the entry I was working on judging last, it'll be best for me to go through all the 06 books line by line to check something and I've been putting it off till I need to do it anyways for the history retelling.
-Shards contest -- I've been making gradual progress whenever I'm bored with other stuff. Sorry I haven't had the mental energy to put either contest at the top of the priority list. Soon(ish?) I hope to just take a break from everything else and burn through it real quick to get those polls up. (I'll be doing that first, then memoirs contest later.)
-For the history retelling, I've got a rule that as much art as is available or possible should be included to give a clear sense of the imagery in each chapter. Where canon imagery is lacking (or hopelessly ugly ) I've been searching for quality fan art and have already gotten many artists' permission for a lot of images. But there's still a list of things (so far) that I've yet to find anything good for, and if any of you artists out there wanna take a crack at 'em, here's your chance (bold is highest priority):
-Annona (peering out of a hole in the ground in daylight ideally)
-original Glatorian form of Jungle Element Lord (ideally holding a mysterious-looking orb that has a plot purpose)
-best guess of original appearance of Vorox
-same with Zesk
-Avohkah (zappy elementals in Karda Nui)
-Miserix original (humanoid) form.
-a random, unidentified Order Agent (your choice of appearance, male, titan)?
-maybe scene of Matoran Civil War?
-Toa Nidhiki (I've asked one artist for permission for a good one, but no response thus far)
-Xian Mountain in tiny rock form inside metal box, multiple mouths
-weird mutant scorpion Rahi from Maze of Shadows (your choice of interpretation)
-Karzahni plant (woody vines coating wall of a cave)
-EP Entity (Mask of Shadows form)
-giant jellyfish (one of the First Rahi)
-better interpretation of Bahrag in protocage??
-Tahtorak on home island, Keetonguan riding??
MOCs may work too if it's got a reasonable background (no tabletops or keyboards or the like visible please; the usual draped-sheet backgrounds work fine). Any takers? You'll be credited (in comments in text file version of story and review topic posts/edits going with each chapter, maybe captions if I can figure that out).
