So I've been thinking about how there are people out there who make Magnificent Seven icons, but there are very few who also create larger sized graphics, such as banners/headers, collages and wallpapers.

The recent BigBang showed that very clearly. We had to open up artist sign ups for people who were participating as writers, and then on top of that, have the artists create art for two writers. All of them rose to the occasion, but it wasn't an easy task. I'd like to see more artists participate in the next BigBang - which we will hopefully have. (I'd also like to see fanmixers, but that's a whole 'nother topic.)

For that purpose I've created a comm, mag7wallpapers, and I'd like to invite all Mag7 fanartists to think about expanding to larger sized graphics - not necessarily wallpapers - and start posting in the comm. I intend to eventually post all my graphics there, to have them all in one location on Dreamwidth. There's nothing much there at the moment, but you're more than welcome to join. :)

So I've been working on my [livejournal.com profile] m7land character poster for the past few days, but haven't been able to concentrate on it much. We've all been waiting to hear about whether the president of our university would be extradited to Serbia on false accusations of war crimes. Not surprisingly, all charges were dropped and he returned home yesterday. The case had already been reviewed and dismissed by the Hague Tribunal, and now the UK judge in charge of the proceedings, a District Judge Timothy Workman, ruled the same, stating that: "These proceedings are brought and are being used for political purposes and as such amount to an abuse of process of this court." My colleagues who were present report that the Serbian prosecutors were dressed down by the judge for wasting the British taxpayers' time and money. The cost of the trial was estimated to be several hundred thousand pounds.

I finally finished the poster this evening, unfortunately too late to qualify for the challenge, so I'm posting it here instead. I created it to look somewhat like a movie poster, and I had to take screencaps myself, since there are very few good Nathan screencaps out there.

This is something I feel should be rectified, and once I find the time, I will try to upload at least some of the screencaps I took.

Yay, I won the Group Wallpaper competition over at [livejournal.com profile] m7land! I envisioned Jock Steele coming up with the title for his dime novel. :)

I'll be eternally grateful to whoever comes up with a cure for insomnia. I tried everything, but nothing seems to work. I finally got up, turned on my computer and started fiddling with Photoshop. The result is below:

...which was supposed to be posted last night, but I didn't finish it until after midnight. I have others to post, but they're still WiPs. They will see the light of day eventually.

My second NaBloPoMo. This is cutting it close, right?

I have two wallpapers for you tonight. I haven't spent too much time on them, as I just wanted to create something. It took maybe 35 minutes, and I usually spent an hour or more on a single wallpaper.

The Past. Sarah and Adam are important to Chris, so I thought it was time for them to get their own wallpaper.

I just entered the [community profile] fanart50 challenge here on Dreamwidth! I know, I must be crazy, with all the stuff that's happening now. But I couldn't help myself!

I am really looking forward to doing this! It will be quite a challenge, similar to what I have going on [community profile] 7men1destiny, but not quite since this is strictly fanart, and the fact that I'm going to draw the boys (and maybe even some of the townspeople). It will probably be a year-long project.

I'm going to be posting the results here, with notices on LJ about any new drawings I upload. Any comments should be left here, just so I liven this place up a little.

OK! First, the wallpaper:



Then, the question: Is anybody else having trouble accessing [livejournal.com profile] 7men1destiny? I posted an entry, and now I can't open the page. It keeps loading and loading, but never actually loads. I can open the entry, but not the front page.

Yep, I have finally posted them! Comments are welcome, feel free to download to your computers and share the Mag7 love.

The first one I called First Look, since it is about the first glimpse Vin and JOsiah have of Maude:



More after the cut... )

Working on...
