1. Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.

1. Icons
I really love how creative and interesting something so tiny can be. It's like a scene or an emotion captured in a tiny little box and I think that's really exciting :P

2. Australia
umm... yes, that is where I live...

3. Doctor Who
Both one of the greatest and lamest tv show of the last 4 years. Sometimes the acting and writing and lighting and sets and all of that jazz are SO off and sometimes it's so flawless you can't but stand back and marvel in its awesomeness.

4. Photography
I only realised this very recently but I am very inspired by pictures. whenever I'm feeling I need a little kick creatively I look at pictures of my favorite models. That inspired me to start taking pictures of people myself because that way I get all the control and if I want someone to be facing slightly further to the left because the light will catch their face better, I can actually change it. And that led me to start a photography course. :D

5. Bad Wolf
my journal is called the Bad Wolf because I made it shortly after watching the season 1 finale of Doctor Who (obviously) and if those words were spread throughout time and space, I figured one and one of those places could be this journal :P
Current Mood: impressedimpressed
Currently Watching: Battlestar Galactica - 4x09 - The Hub

1. I think the exact same thing about icons and I wish I could work that small confidently.

4. Photography is really fun even when you create bad photos n/n? I think if you do it regularly enough, you start to view the world through lens's. Like the way you think how people will look photoshpped :)

5. Oh, THAT's where the bad wolf came from.

4. Photography is awesome. My step-dad's a photograph and I really should ask him to give me some pointers. I'm sure I'd love it.

5. Awww, that's what it means! Good to know. lol

I make my icons at 300x300px and then resize them when I've finished. Maybe that's what you should do?

Hehe, I've always wondered what people thought of that and apparently you're all just very confused by it :P
Have you seen Doctor Who?

2. painting
3. colours

Oh, wow, I'm gonna try that 300x300 idea next time I wanna make an icon!

See, I do the same thing with my walls but I work in 2000+ sizes usually and then shrink down. Even 300x300 is literally the tiniest thing in the world, I find it difficult to manoeuvre in it. Or when I shrink down, it looks very distorted?

I just realised I committed myself to a meme! *hides face*
Any chance I could give my answers here? I am embarrassed to actually write in my journal.

1. supernatural
I love this show for the family dynamic, the devotion between the Winchesters, it just pulled me in like the tide. I hadn't even been into fandom (lurker and fanfic reader) until this show. Plus, the slashiness of Sam/Dean is awesome.

2. painting
I love it. I can't live without it. I need it like air.

3. colours
That obvious huh? I had a lovely teacher who showed me the importance of colours and colour theory in painting. There is so much I have yet to understand about colours and there's ALWAYS something new to learn. If you wanna see how complex it can be, read this article.

4. t:tscc
I've stopped watching it because Lost and BSG has come back on. I need to get back onto it! The reason why I love SCC so much is the female characters. They're never cliches, they're strong and beautiful, and they lead rather than always following. Cameron and Sarah are both characters I really wanna see succeed, more than Derek and John :P
