My take on the clever force that is Grimes.


Angry Kara Zor-El


Rarrrrr! Beast in the beauty… don’t piss Kara off! (:


Angry Kara WIP


I am enjoying Supergirl. The instant I saw this scene, I had to paint it! This is a very angry Kara Zor-El, in an episode that deals with, among other things, the recently outed Supergirl’s anger issues. She is in the process of blowing a very bad robot to atoms… she channels all the pent-up rage she’s been holding back about the loss of her family/planet, to defeat a particularly tough opponent. And, in fact, tries so hard she accidentally drains her own powers for a few days, so she gets, in the next episode, to cut her finger, catch a cold, and break her arm. Love it! And, of course, she’s just so damned cute!

To get the awesome texture on her top, I photographed the top of a 3V Lithium Cell battery, which had the exact pattern I needed, then took it into glorious Photoshop CS5, and made it into a tiled texture, which i then desaturated, then placed over her top, and set to ‘multiply’ Really pleased with it (:


Hammer of the Wind


And, here she is (:


Hammer of the Wind WIP 3


Here is my girl’s Elven sword (:


Hammer of the Wind WIP 2


Finally finished her chain mail!! Jeez, that was tedious! But worth it (:

Between hours spent laboriously toiling away on the mail links, worked on other details to relieve the monotony, but most of the time spent on Hammer since the last WIP I posted, has been spent on that mail. Yay, now I can really get going… I’m loving my Wind Hammer!

As always, I have listened to a constant musical diet whilst working on this, from Grimes and Helicopter Girl, to Cults and KT Tunstall, but two tracks I’ve thrashed a bit, are Maleficent Flies, and Escape from the Tower, both by James Newton Howard… they are perfect Hammer soundtracks! I can totally see her single-handedly kicking Troll ass with Escape from the Tower blasting in the background (:

Joy and Peace

Wishing you all joy and peace, whatever xmas means to you. Life is short, those we love are everything… cherish them.
