So, um... yes, a new addiction called Tiger & Bunny. A new addiction that treats me so well that it had to have a couple of awesome shinies made in its honor. The Great Enabler Schala-Kitty pushed some vector art on me (no, really!) of Wild Tiger's and Bunny's/Barnaby's suit insignias, and, well... I got to work doing them with no background to help me out. For I am a fool that way. But look at how shiny!
Bunny's insignia actually didn't give me nearly as much trouble as Tiger's... but getting the band to work out created its own challenges. So much for thinking it can ever be easy.
It was bound to happen eventually. I'm more than happy to make these along with the standard double-sided or single-sided call bracelets, but this particular one pictured is mine. Ahem.
(If you are new to, or do not know about, the Tiger & Bunny fandom, then Black Tiger is kind of a non-canon fan creation. A very, very good one.)
Not much to say here that I haven't already said. about the first version Plenty of little improvement tweaks to the netting design which would just be boring to talk about, but I continue to be disturbed wowed by the idea that I can still improve upon something I’ve done so many times.
I don't know why, it just made sense at the time: mde a three-dimensional rupee with different designs on each side and "stuff" it so that it's soft and squishy. I'll bet that makes sense to someone. It can be a pendant, a keychain, or just a bauble of bauble-y goodness, and I'm always open for commissions.Date: 29 November 2011
Ask me where my love of gaming began and I'll tell you a tale about a vicious little game called The Legend of Zelda. No matter how many times I had to put the controller down, I always came back. I don't think anything will ever overcome Ocarina of Time as my favorite, though.
And so somewhere along the line, for some INSANE AND STUPID reason, I decided to take on this monster. But damn it's shiny. The color scheme was inspired by one of FusedElegance's designs. The rest is... all me. All painfully me. From creating the pattern from several sources to the (obviously) actual beading and design... yeah. 3,014 individual glass beads, woven together individually by hand over the course of two weeks, and a silk ribbon that refuses to properly photograph in the gorgeously vibrant emerald color that it actually is. I am not doing this again unless I get paid, in full, first. Even if I do want to make a solid gold version on a black background.
