Blixa,

These are all great. I'm most in love with the first of your set. Are you taking any requests?

Zee.


Brooksie?

That would be glorious!

I was actually thinking of 1820 European fashion. I've been working on it but it is proving more difficult than expected.

I'm not a huge fan of Regency costume, despite my love of the Brontes. It's too night-gowny for my tastes and the close fit of the bodice above the high waist always looks tight and binding to me. Especially under the arms.

Anyway, I found a portrait from the era which featured a lush brocade shawl. So I used that for a sketch. I'm going to leave it like this, because it doesn't really grab me the way other things do. If I were going to spend more time with it, I could bring out the pattern on the brocade better, but this gives an impression of the parts of the outfit I liked the most: the shawl, the neckerchief and the coral beads:

BTW Just Me, the simple act of taking a shower has forever changed in my mind since reading your little story.

Yes.

I'm a little embarrassed to admit it was efficiently voyeuristic. Well done!

Nice. I've never heard of a tuning guitar before.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guitar_tunings#Alternative_tunings
I use "alternative" (non-standard) tunings. I have experimented with 128 different ways to tune the guitar over the years and now regularly use about 55 different tunings through "waveform modeling". The tuning I use in the above piece has the 5th & 6th strings tuned down about an octave and a half and the other 4 strings doubled up with 2 different alternative tuning notes each ~ so I am essentialy playing a "virtual" 10 string guitar on a 6 string electric. It was also just 1 take of 1 guitar.

Hey, what about this for a story plot:

Some Liberal sneaks into the Salt Lake Temple, steals some of the South American gold tooth filings from the Temple Matrons and fashions it into a ring.

George Romney then steals the ring back, but inadvertently loses it to the Warren Jeff's fundamentalist group. George's son Mitt reclaims the ring, but is eventually defeated by the Nigerian Prince Obama. Finally, Sherri Dew gains the ring and returns it the the Temple Matrons, but Salt Lake City is destroyed in the process right after the heavier Sister in the soprano section of the Tabernacle Choir sings the final song, Ride of the Relief Society.

Think it might have some potential?
