Well, here's my stuff I've made most recently, ways to improve and critism are greatly helpful, so please comment! They're posted roughly in chronological order.

BannersImage
At this moment in time I discovered the glorious GIMP and was able to use brushes for the first time! Hers one of the earliest gimpy creations, for timx4.
Image
More early gimpiness. I do love this one :)
Image
This is pureley to fuel my own Firefly fangirlishness :P

Loadsa Torchwood banners I made :)

Blends/Wallpapers

And now enter latest obsession, Torchwood, the start of many new graphics! This was my first Gimpy wallie.

v Was on blend spree this week, and these are results. The bottom one has a bit of blood and is a wee bit macarbre, so squeamish people do not look.
Image
^Was oh so very proud of this one :)
Image
Not so proud of this, but its better than most, Lyrics from Patience, by Take that.
Image
More Torchwoody stuff. The pic really bugs me. Gwen looks more pretty after just being shot than I do after hours of getting ready. :annoyed2:

Image
^Manip contest entry.
**New**
Image
^My background at the moment, shrunken a wee bit. *hisses at Saywer*

Image
^Just random muckings about, but it came out pretty well :)

Image
My LJ header, which I can't get to work properly :annoyed2: Yes, it matches my old sig set.

A wee update!

v People fed up of my obsessive Gwen/ Owen shipness will be glad, this'll probably be the last banner of the two I ever do, judging by the trailer he's gonna cheat on her... :'( The banner is practically identical to another one I did of them a while back, but they look so good in orange, and these were the sweetest caps ever :)
Image

Oh, and I'm willing to write tutorials on any of the effects, if your interested.

EDIT: 14th December
Image
^For a manip contest.
Image
^My urrent banner, I was sooooooooo proud of this, despite breaking my promise of keeping the love actually one till christmas.

Thank TN *tacklehuggles*

Huge update today, with more to come :)
vCurrent sig set, featuring Suzie Costello of Torchwood, one of those evil genuises who don't get enough love :P
Image
Image

A firefly manip, following Arwen's tutorial, switched Inara's face with a different picture so she didn't look so morbid. Didn't come out to well, but it was my first try and all...
Image

How cute did David Tennant look in this episode? I desperatly wanted to hug him. Banner sucks big time, but those caps just had to be used.
Image
This was made soley to satisfy my Mal/ Inara squeeing. God I love that quote :p
Image
Susan, from Pratchetts Hogfather. They did a brilliant job of it :)
Image
First of some club banners I'm making for my fanclub. Just some random mucking about with the brushes really.

:blink: I tend to just much about with the layer options, choose a texture, find out which looks best.

But anyways, first update in a looong time, as I've gone on a small spree lately

My first colourization! *squee*
Image
It's far from perfect, and I didn't bother with anyspecial effects, but it canme out pretty well for my first try :)

My scarily huge Huddy love needed to manifest in some fan art. I'm working on a drawing of House, but its not finished yet.
Image
(Lyrics are from Black Balloon by the Goo Goo dolls BTW)
V Note the distict absence of Sulley here! :annoyed2:
Image
And a few banners, some requests, some sigs, some made purely for the sake of it.

Kess, have I ever said how much I adore! your stuff!!?

First off, I must comment on your unique style. Everything is so glowy, and the colors are beautifully distinct!! I love it, so creative and different.

-Favorites-
I'm in love with your Firefly banners, especially "You can't take the sky from me." I love the theme song so much... and it's a great banner.
Jate!! I never thought I'd see another Jate person [I'm not really either way myself, still undecided] - AWESOME blend!!! I love the colors.
I'm not like a monster fan of House or anything - but that's one of the most beautiful blends. And Hugh looks so handsome in it. eHeh.
And lastly, the finding Neverland banner was so lovely. I love the text and the blending is stunning.

WOW! Thanks so much for all the comments guys, I'm glad you like my stuff!

Here's a much needed update. I'll try to update more often, but I'm useless at remembering. f anyone wants to use the banners, they;re welcome too, I probably never will.

Some Huddycentric House pieces I've made. 11 days to go! :bounce:

Image
Image

A colourisation of the gorgeous Dr Cuddy. Or not so gorgeous now I royally mucked up her makeup. -

Image

A header for the contest down at the 206_bones community @LJ. Stupid rules said it wasn't allowed to be shipcentric, which made it very tricky, cos everyone knows how crazy I get about my ships!
Image

A wee blood ties banner. Went a bit overboard with the brushes and textures here, and now you can barely see Henry or Vicki! But I tihnk the colours looked quite pretty :) -
Image

Comments / Critism is love!

Wow! Amazing update, Kess! I really love your colourization and the Bones blend. All your other pieces look fantastic as well. Great job!
Keep up the great work! :)

Oh, Miss Kess.

:swoon:

So, I already knew your artistic talents [s]were[/s] ARE brilliant. But seeing all of your artwork laid out like this has just FLOORED me! :swoon:
The first stuff you've posted is just glorious, but somehow (I've no idea HOW it's possible) that amazing talent has just gotten BETTER! ACK!
You really do have a unique style, and what a beautiful style it is! If I knew how to use GIMP or Photoshop or whatever programs you graphic artists use, I'd NEVER be able to compare to you!

And your colourizations! Look so REAL! Seriously. They look so...fresh, and alive and glowing! And I use the word "glowing" in the sense that they look alive....does that make sense? XD

Anyway, GREAT work! Keep it up! I'm sure I'm pretty safe in saying that all of us here at AU absolutely adore your work! :D
(I especially love all the House/Bones/Doctor Who/Torchwood stuff! *SQUEEEE* :happy:)
