The fact that I am not very good at sticking to one thing for very long is hardly a piece of information which was elucidated solely from the artvent fiasco. It is more a thing that I have known for a very long time and become frequently frustrated with myself about. Actually I am rather pleased that Artvent lasted as long as it did seeing as it was a spur of the moment idea, and one that required a lot of work for quite a minimal payoff (i.e. no payoff at all).

So now it's the year 2011 (twenty-eleven or two thousand and eleven: who cares?) and I just thought I best stick my head in and say a couple of things about stuff and then sod off and it'll probably be july before I do another entry in here. Actually I know I say who cares on the subject of the pronounciation of the dates but imagine if in 1999 and years previous we'd been saying one thousand nine hundred and ninety nine. That would certainly make 'Party Like It's 1999' less catchy.

This is the cut text )

Clone 666 found himself drawn inexorably to the dark arts while in life. He dyed his hair an unusual colour and consorted with the spirits of the dead. When he met his unfortunate end he came up with an elaborate and quite frankly rubbish scheme to bring himself back to life. He breathed life into a formation of crystallised souls that would later be known as ‘Fool’s Paradiso’. The purpose of this creation was to lead unwary souls into his fake heaven trap whereupon he would feast upon their souls and get his life back. The key flaws in this plan was that Fool’s Paradiso was so intimidating that nobody would follow him, 666’s fake heaven was really unconvincing and even had he succeeded consuming the soul of another does not bring you back to life.

This artvent for some reason has taken me all day to draw and I have no idea why. Man I suck at time management. Anyway without further ado here is the first of the three artvent pictures (actually perhaps this is the reason it has taken me so long, I don't know).

yo )

In case you are wondering what is going on with the guard's head it's a helmet which has on it's front an image of Sister's face. She rules over the trapped population of her 'Paradise' through a mixture of physical force, constant brainwashing and a creepy kind of love and caring, claiming to be protecting her prisoners from the horrors of the outside world. All the guards wear Sister helmets... as do all the whores.

Todays picture is a snapshot from the same time period as the first. Some kind of apocalyptic scenario has turned the Principality of Jormungandr into a vast rolling desert. Jormungandr has found herself a new kingdom to rule; the liberated population of a floating city previously run by a perverted cult leader called Sister.

picture in here )

This one was tricky to draw in terms of how I was going to present the floating city in a way that was interesting to look at. Floating free it's just a big circle with a J on it and some exhaust pipes and stuff. I decided that while Sister would have been happy to float free; and thus keep the inhabitants captive to her whims, Jormungandr would have redocked it with it's original docking platform.

This picture is not an actual scene but more a sort of amalgamam of the entirity of The Great Unknowable Unknown; yet another spin-off of The Prinicpalities that I really should finish off at some point. The annoyed looking guy is Sue Sugarsnatch, who hates his name and his life. The green floaty Cortana lookalike is Ixcalibur, where I originally pinched the name from.

Well I certainly hope that my new feature is going to last a little bit longer than my reviewingess did. Every day I'm drawing a picture/composing a peice of music/writing a short peice of text (because hey writing is an art I'm pretty sure) for the purpose of... actually I'm not sure why I'm doing this. It's a december thing. They will all probably be set in The Principalities and the first one presents a bleak future for the Principality of Jormungandr.

the art itself is behind the cut and you can see it by clicking here, so do so, now! )
