Goodbye Video-Making, Hello Art

Okay, so that sounded better in my head. Basically, I have had so much going lately as far as video-making that I’ve gotten burned out, so I decided to put it aside for a little while. It’s been maybe a week, and I’m already starting to feel inspired again. Of course, I don’t have the material for what I want to do yet, so it’ll take me some time to start working on that.

So, in lieu of vidding, I’ve been painting. Not really painting, like with an easel and brushes and all that. No, I’ve been working on some hardcore digital art. Okay, maybe not hardcore. It’s probably all relative anyway. But my sister started into it recently, and watching her gave me the itch to give it a try. My first project is almost finished, so hopefully I’ll get it posted soon (possibly with some progress shots, too).

It’s probably also worth mentioning that I uploaded a handful of older videos before my hiatus. They’d been rotting on my computer while awaiting a few easy fixes that just required me to sit down and get it done. There are still a few newly finished videos that I just haven’t uploaded yet, so that will be happening soon too.

So anyway, that’s what’s been up, other than the fact that I’m in doll-collecting doldrums. As you probably know, I’ve been trying to get a BJD forever (about four years, to be more exact), but it’s just never worked out. Minifees have been the closest thing to my dream doll, although there are other kinds that are awesome. One of which is Iplehouse.

Unfortunately, the only sculpt of theirs that I absolutely loved was unavailable. Until the ninth of last month. They just released a renewed version of their HID body, and the Lahela head is available to choose. Sadly, the event is ending on the fifth and I won’t be able to afford her in time. This isn’t close to being the first time I’ve fallen in love with a limited edition doll too late, and I’m sure it won’t be the last. While it’s disappointing, I still love Minifees and would absolutely love to have one. It also helps that the one I want isn’t limited. ;)

So hopefully this hasn’t been too boring…there are more exciting things to come! See you soon XD

Getting Things Done

Short update here! I finally uploaded a bunch of videos to YouTube – some I’d simply forgotten to upload, others needed polishing up. I made them all this year, some months and months old, but I didn’t think to upload them in order. They’re also all different quality as well as far as editing. Anyway, check them out here, I hope you like them. :)

Hint: Some of them are for Eleven and Clara. ;)

See You Soon

Hello! I’m still alive! I’m beginning to think that blogging is just the opposite of how I’m wired or something. Anyway, I’m here today because of a song called “I Found.” You may have heard it. It’s by Amber Run and I’ve been hearing it in videos for Doctor Who, Marvel, etc., for a long while now. It grew on me and naturally, I decided to check out some of Amber Run’s other songs.

One of them being, “See You Soon.” It seemed like a really fun vidding song and I figured I hadn’t made a video the Eleventh Doctor and Clara in a while, so I whipped something up. It’s nothing spectacular, but I thought it was sweet. You can click here to watch. Hope you like it! :)

Hold My Hand

Hey, folks! Finally got around to posting. And guess what? I uploaded a new Doctor Who video! As I talk about in the description on YouTube, it’s far from my best, but it’s finished. XD

I also mentioned how I’m actually a little embarrassed about some of the videos I have on YouTube. When I started vidding, I was obviously inexperienced, and it didn’t help that I didn’t have much material either. I’ll be excited to polish up my better, more recent videos so you can see that I actually have made progress in my skills. So my new upload isn’t anything spectacular, but I enjoyed making it (click here if you wanna watch it).

It’s about one of my many hopeless ships: Eleven and Clara. One time when I was out shopping I heard bits and pieces of “Hold My Hand” by Jess Glynne, and I always wondered what song it was. It wasn’t until I watched a music video with “Rather Be” by Clean Bandit (featuring Jess Glynne) that I got interested in her music and found this song. I immediately thought that it would be perfect for Eleven and Clara, and so the video happened. I hope you guys like it! :)

On Hold

I guess I can stop apologizing for not posting for weeks at a time. Life happens. Things slip my mind. It’s not that I haven’t been doing anything, it’s just…I’ve been doing a lot.

So, anyone following my Pinterest has probably noticed my new board for The Avengers. Anyone following my Instagram knows that I’ve been watching the Marvel movies lately. Most of them, for the first time.

I’ve now seen the first Avengers, all three Iron Man, both Captain America, and both Thor movies. I’m looking forward to the release of Age of Ultron on October 2nd, and in the meantime I’m watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Now is not the right time to go into all the many pros and cons of those movies (and show). There are things I really enjoy, things that hurt my fangirl feels like crazy, and things I don’t like at all. The list is pretty long, so I’ll save it for another day.

So, I’ve been working on fan videos. I have such fun creating them, but uploading is such a hassle and I have quite a few. Some old, not-quite-finished Doctor Who videos are collecting dust, waiting to be completed and uploaded, as well as some tributes to my new fandom. I’m still trying to get to those, but I’m afraid I have more videos hiding away on my computer than I do on YouTube. I have four videos about Marvel characters that are awaiting a final round of changes. Hang in there, I will try to get them uploaded for everyone to see. :)

P.S. While I’m at it, I thought I would mention my doll blog, Likeness of Life. I know it hasn’t been updated for a while, but for those of you who read it, it’s not forgotten about. I’ve been busy with some other things, and a good bit of my free time is spent feeling kind of wiped out. I am planning to get back to work on it, but I just don’t know when. Just know that it’s not ended, it’s on hold. :)

I’m back! I told you I was busy working on some iMovie projects. Well finally, I have a video ready for the world to see. One day I was listening to Selena Gomez and I heard her song “Stars Dance.” It’s edgy. It’s magnificent. It’s starry. And I thought, here’s an opportunity to create something amazing. Now, I’m not sure if I’ve done quite that, but I definitely tried, and am very proud of the results. Let me know what you think. :)

The New “Human” Music Video For Doctor Who

Click on the photo to watch the video.

So I finally did it! I got the updated version of the video on YouTube! I’ve changed quite a few things, and I’m finally satisfied with how it turned out, so I think you guys will like the changes. I’ll also be taking the old version down. I really, really hope you think it’s an improvement. Feel free to let me know what you think! :)

strong enough

Using Taylor Swift’s simple lyrics in B.o.B.’s song Both of Us, I put together a video as a tribute to the Tenth Doctor and his companions. All of them had such strength, each of a unique kind. And someday, they would be strong enough to lift each other. Click to watch. :)

strong enough

P.S. Shortly after publishing my Doctor Who music video set to Christina Perri’s hit “Human”, I watched The Beast Below. Yes, I have finally met the Eleventh Doctor. Saying goodbye to the Tenth is a story for another day, but I’d like to point out something very key that the Doctor says to Amy in his second episode. After she makes a mistake that angers the Doctor greatly, he reminds her that she is only human.

Naturally, I couldn’t resist using this scene to reinvent my video. While I was at it, I found a few other things I felt could be changed in making the video better. I’m so much more satisfied with it now, and I hope to get it posted soon. I’ll be taking the original down, so you might want to watch it one last time before I post the new one. :)

the impossible girl

Hello again! I’m back with another Doctor Who fan video. True, I haven’t watched the seasons with Clara Oswald yet, but I can hardly wait to see what her character is like, and so I wanted to make a tribute to her. When I got the inspiration for this video, I slapped it together and was quite satisfied with the results. I hope you are too. :) Click on the photo to watch.
