Queen_PSpaintingI recently joined SuicideGirls, because they have a ‘fanart’ group (loath that term ):), where members can/are encouraged to draw/paint, any of the entire collection of delicious subjects. SuicideGirls is an ‘alternative’ pinup site, alternative meaning tattooed/pierced sweeties who come in a vastly wider range of sizes and shapes than conventional ‘pinups’.

This is my first post on that site, the super-gorgeous Queen_ (: Yes, there is a lot of hours work here (:


Angry Sprite


Sprites are slow to anger. If you, or any number of other people, are unfortunate enough to actually enrage one of these, otherwise, gentle creatures, you are pretty much dead.

Being top-of-the-chain Elementals, Sprites are capable of channeling any, all, or a combination of the energies that make the universe, including antimatter. A seriously threatened Sprite is capable of giving off an energy pulse strong enough to flatten several city blocks. It was one such Sprite, when cornered by several armed reindeer hunters, who blasted thousands of trees flat, as well as the hunters, in Tunguska in 1908.

Blink of an Eye


My latest girl singer crush. This song makes my throat ache. It’s so perfect to listen to when working on the newly developing Miho/Alice relationship. The studio/album version is my fave because you get to hear the gorgeous growl in her voice that doesn’t seem to register in any of the, still, beautiful, live versions. The only thing better than a powerful female singer is a powerful, growling female singer… Grace Slick, for instance… jeez, that girl could sing! Anyway, you can probably expect an Amanda Jenssen homage painting from me sometime soon. Also, anyhow, Miho and the Immortals is coming on nicely. I introduced Miho to the mix because Creaturina and Alice are just too, damned powerful/indestructible to have a decent story/character arch/development… Miho is delicious and totally helpless/vulnerable/gorgeous, she will soften our lethal Alice, and provide a weakness/achilles heal for the indomitable Alice/Creatuie combo. Still, if I was a bad thing, I’d seriously think twice before thinking she was an easy mark… wouldn’t you? If Alice loved you, would you feel vulnerable? I wouldn’t (:

Since posting this, and in my search for images of the gorgeous, hugely talented Amanda, I came across this. I am an inveterate Leonard fan, and particularly adore hallelujah, and knew, instantly, that Amanda could pull this off… and she does, easily. Actually, I think she could do it better (more power), but who am i to say?, just a besotted fan.

Did this listening to Amanda Jenssen Hymns for the Haunted and Sharleen Spiteri Melody — aural gorgeousness! (:

Poser Babe


Isn’t she gorgeous? I’ve hardly done anything to her in Photoshop, perhaps twenty minutes work.
