01. Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper at their LiveJournal.
02. Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
03. Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on!

Click on the image to see it bigger.

This is my current wallpaper, which I made myself about... six months ago? It's a blend of a background that I loved, an image I loved - of a girl taking a giraffe for a walk in a city! - and a lyric brush someone else made but that I really like. The 'theme' for this piece was 'determined individuality', reinforced by both the surreal image and the lyrics. I really like the colours and the composition of it, which is why it's my current wallpaper :)

However, I'm considering making a new one - Star Trek! It'll have to be good, though, I'm pretty attached to this one.

New layout

I went to the lj comm [ profile] freelayouts to see what they had and found this beautiful layout of a lily, by [ profile] minty_peach. I'm really loving it right now - I liked my old one, but it's nice to have a change :) What do you think?

Anyway, if you wanted a new layout, this is the place to go. Loads of beautiful graphics work - makes me wish I knew more coding! You have to join to see the actual layouts, mind, but it's worth it, just don't add it to your flist if you don't want the clutter.

Hey, long time no post :) (well, relatively speaking.)

Just a check-in post, really... not a lot going on. I'm in a sticky spot with writing and haven't done any TNT in days. I'm starting to get annoyed at myself. I do this all the time, too.

However, I have been making various graphics things over the past couple of days, for various reasons, so I thought I'd share :D

Okay go!

Today we're driving off to the (hopefully) sunny south of France for two weeks. TECHNICALLY we're going to have wireless internet at the place we're going to. Realistically I just don't know how good it's going to be until I get there. So be prepared not to hear from me for a couple of weeks, though you probably will :)

My aim for the two weeks: write a load more of The Night Tower and get back into the swing of writing for the summer. My current wordcount, so I have something to compare it to when I get back:

Zokutou word meterZokutou word meter
18,381 / 100,000

(Damn I love this wordcount widget, it makes me happy to see it ^-^)

Also, look at the spiffy new icon I made for The Night Tower-related posts! I love making specific icons, I'm such a geek XD (I will admit though, most of the image was already there when I made this... I just did a lot of colouring work on it. And the text is mine. But it still looks AWESOME. I'm modest too, you know.)

BTW - if anyone wants me to make them icons, of anything, I'm always up for it. Actor related, pairing related, your own writing related, just let me know. I love doing graphics work, I just need more ideas of what to do.

(Come to think of it, I posted a load more wallpapers in my scrapbook today. Remind me to link them here.)

This entry has a lot of things in it but is not very long. Perhaps that sums up my whole livejournal, actually... I feel like I say a lot but don't write very much. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

Ooh, also, Susan ([ profile] blondeyetti) made me fanart! Click on the thumbnail to see!

I got such a lovely response to my last trio of wallpapers that I made some more!

And lo, [ profile] wickedkitty said unto me, "You should totally make wallpapers."

So I went forth and produced wallpapers. And here-th they are-th :)

tahariel: (typewriter loves you)
So I made icons for most of my longer writing projects in the last couple of days, because I felt like it. Even if I'm not working on it at the moment, I felt it should have its own icon. And so I'm posting them here for you to see in case I never use them.

Can you guess, (for the icons where it isn't written on them, of course), which one is for which project? Can you remember what they were about? There may be a prize!

Three banners for you this weekend :) One I made last week and two over the last couple of days. The Supernatural banner (the third one) is the one I'd recommend if you only wanna look at one (time, bandwidth, whatever) simply because it turned out so cool (yes, that is me being immodest. Again.)

So anyway, please look and give feedback :)

Jack/Daniel - Ghost of a Shark

Summercon 2006 banner for [ profile] svmadelyn

Supernatural - Brothers in Arms
tahariel: (Jack and John - heroes)
Yay, Jack/Daniel banner goodness for all!

Go here for Jack/Daniel banner goodness
ETA:And now also here!

God, I read so much fanfic. I've read so much SGA stuff that now I start reading a fic and can't remember if I've read it before (which for me never happens, I remember pretty much everything I've ever read and how the plot goes and even specific scenes down to dialogue sometimes depending on how memorable it was.)

Lucy's boyfriend Dan was over last night and met Dad for the first time and was generally nice and not annoying or weird, so he gets an approval rating. I managed not to do my usual overkill rambling thing that I usually do when I meet new people because it makes me anxious. This is a Good Thing because it makes me sound like an idiot.

When are people going away to uni? I head off on the 19th. If anyone wants to get together and do stuff before then, next week is the time. Drop me an email and we'll organise something :) I know I promised a zoo trip but I forgot. Sorry! Maybe next year?

You know the drill by now.

Jack/Daniel - Let me tell you...

McShep - I never know...
tahariel: (Default)
Another new banner! It's McShep (surprised?) and, yes, big .png file. I like it when you leave feedback, things you like and don't like. Yes, this is me asking :)

See it here
tahariel: (SGA - John - agent)
I made this to go on my folder for uni, because as a lot of you know I love to decorate my folders. It's big. Like, really big. So if you want to see it it may take a minute to load. But I hope you think it's worth it. It came out really good :)

It's a McShep (McKay/Sheppard) banner, though subtly so. (As in, no outright kissing or anything... dammit.) A lot of the coolness comes from the texture I used for background, which is by the amazing [ profile] gender, who makes loads of great stuff. You can see it here. Feedback would be greatly appreciated.

(If you're interested, this is the texture I used to make it.)

And, oh god, [ profile] ionaonie this is your fault, I signed up for a fanfic challenge at [ profile] spook_me
tahariel: (Smallville - blue love)
I made new banners and stuff and lookit now my journal is blue and green and has McShep at the top ^-^

Please tell me if you like it because I am very pleased with it and I want other people to shamelessly praise it and make me feel good (ha ha, yeah, no, really)
tahariel: (Brandon Routh)
Just met Lucy's boyfriend, Dan - he seems at least presentable and capable of speech, though I have been banished upstairs and out of the way :D They're out walking the dog right now. He kinda reminds me, looks wise, of a young Matthew Hoggard, the England cricket player - same sort of hair, though more tawny. His laugh is sort of annoying, though, like a snigger. Won't tell Lucy that.

Yesterday me and Susan went to London to have a professional photoshoot done, with full make-up and sets and everything. It was loads of fun, and some great shots were taken, though the prices are extortionate and they tried to trick us into paying loads of money by suggesting we were paying £49 for three digital copies of images but we would in fact have been paying £99 because they said it as 'using your deposit, you'd only pay £49 today!' but because we are both amazing mathematicians (read: we have brains) we just kept saying, 'yeah, sure, no' until he eventually brought it down to £57 for three pictures plus the contact sheets with thumbnails of all of them which is actually very good for professional shots.

Also, new graphics work! This has been made for [ profile] ionaonie to go on her lj, so hopefully she'll like it :) I'm emailing it to her separately as well, but I wanted to show off, so here it is in all its glory. It's a Superman Returns banner, high quality png file, long load but coolies, you may have picked up on the drill by now :)

Damn, I want Lucy and her boyfriend to come back now so we can order pizza because I'm hungry!
tahariel: (John/Rodney - heartbroke and waiting)
I made a high-quality png banner to stick on my planner for uni because yes, I am that obsessively fannish. I didn't like the writing all over the front of my planner telling me all about it, so I made McShep, because McShep makes me happy ^-^ It took, like, three or four hours to do. Note the photomanipulation of John and Rodney in the top left corner that turned out really cool *beams*

See it here! Go on, you know you want to! It may take a minute to load because it's a big file, but it's pretty!
tahariel: (Jpop - brightly coloured girl)
I was so pleased with my Superman Returns banner that I decided to make a tutorial for it to show other people how to do similar things, and hopefully have a lot of fun doing it :) So, here goes!

We are making this from these three pictures.

I'm just a man in a silly red sheet / Digging for Kryptonite on this one-way street )
tahariel: (FFX - Tidus - on my tide)
Please go look at my journal and tell me what you think of my new header and colourscheme. I'm quite proud of it, so... I'd love to hear from you all. I loved Superman Returns and Brandon Routh, and I wanted to make a new header anyway, so... let me know :)

tahariel: (SGA - John - agent)
I got fired for something I didn't do yesterday. My boss (who you recall had been away for a week) claimed I hadn't done the work she asked me to do while she was away (which I definitely had, y'know, I could tell by the way that it took HOURS) and so I lost my steady income.

It's not that I want the job back, because I'd hate it now, but I really don't want to be thought of as a slacker, y'know? So I'm writing a letter to the temping agency to tell them what actually happened. Debbie can think what she likes, the bitch. Woulda been nice if she'd actually asked me what I'd done instead of just jumping to conclusions.

I made a nice header image for my lj, but I don't know how to put it up at the top, so I'm asking around and hopefully someone can help me and it'll be gorgeous. (Wanna see?)
