A Couple of Things

I don't know whether you've seen, but - following theemdash -  I'm doing a WIP Meme. I've posted a list of all my computer work-in-progress files (meta; my original novel; and TMNT, SG-1, SGA and Sherlock fan-fiction); if you pick a few, I will post an excerpt/snippet for your delectation and delight (or not). theemdashand taste_is_sweet- if you want to pick some more titles, you won't hear me complaining! :D

Re-reading my unfinished TMNT fics makes me feel that they might be worth finishing and posting. I doubt I'll ever write any new TMNT fic, but I'd like the feel of having finished them and got them out there. (TMNT is the one fandom where I feel my skill levels belong.) I think Anthropophobia contains some of my best writing. ETA: definitely plan on finishing/publishing at least one TMNT fic in 2011 - too many people have asked for snippets not to!

In other news, according to my F'list it is Canadian Thanksgiving today. Congratulations and celebrations to the Canadians on my F'list - *I* am thankful for you guys. I hope you have a wonderful day and don't get indigestion! :D

Finally, I've tried my hand at a likeness again. If I have to tell you who it is, I've failed. ;)

ETA - I failed, apparently, as he was mis-identified. It's actually Benedict as Sherlock in the BBC series. :(

umm... In spite of similarly long faces, lots of hair and cheekbones to die for, apparently I failed. :(

I was actually copying a picture of Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock in the *other* Moffat BBC drama. Apparently, I reeeally need to improve. :(

Though... now you've said this, I am going to try my hand at Matt in the next few days. :) I hope that does better.

I think it's Sherlock. So sorry if I'm wrong.

Either way it's a very good portrait.

Well... it misses my definition of "good" if it isn't recognisable! Good technique, maybe, but the likeness is the point after all! But, yes, I was trying to portray Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes in the BBC drama.

:D Yay! Thank you for guessing right! And thanks for the praise, too, Lou. I think I am improving in style? Fewer hard lines which don't actually exist?

Actually, it's hard to find a *well-lit* (ie front-lit, no heavy shadows) image of BC as SH. :( But I did my best. I'll keep practising and trying.

*giggling* I'm going to sound pedantic here, but that's not my intention. I'm actually giggling to myself because I have a pretty terrible memory for faces, and by your definition of 'good' that would make an actual real face I can't place a 'not-good' face due to it not being recognisable. XD
But it matters not, and it turned out to be good by your definition as I recognised him.
(Not bad considering I've only seen one episode of Sherlock and the icons of him floating around LJ. Incidentally, the episode I saw was the last one weeks ago and I really enjoyed it.)

Definitely improving in style I'd say, the face is much softer and less harsh looking. Hair needs work, but hair is a pain in the bum.
