So it was a while back but I've only just managed to sort and upload all the photos I took at Starfury Ultimates.

Just look at Nick & Iain!

So I actually booked for a Convention this year. Problem is, I left it too late following a big announcement which I failed to notice on twitter and had to go with regular ticket as all the Golds had gone.

I was enticed by Starfury's Ultimates in June.  Hayley Atwell and Enver Gjokaj were announced and I thought what the hell.  May be a bit of a punt to get Hayley's auto & photoshoot as she is only there two days but it will be a good opportunity for the new camera to show me what that zoom can do, and in low light as the lighting at those events isn't the kindest to photographers. Plus  I'll be a way back from the stage as a normal punter.  Brett Dalton, B J Britt, Bridget Regan  and Dichen Lachman from Agents of SHIELD/Carter are all booked to appear too. I've had the pleasure of meeting Enver & Dichen before but not the others. Starfury sometimes have surprise guests too so it would be cool if they were more Marvel ones.  Should be fun.

Oh and it's at the Norbreck in Blackpool. I went to my very first Convention (Which happened to be Starfury's End of Days for Angel the Series) there in 2003. Ah happy memories.

Now I need to break out the art materials to do some portraits for autographs.

I know that many people hate this festival day, but I thank my lucky stars that some bloke at work gave me a card 23 years ago, life changing I tell you.

I made some shippy cards - I still feel very rusty in the photoshop department but it'll only improve if I practice!

So Invasion 2 - this weekend. A good time was had although I didn't feel much in the mood to boogie at the parties which was a shame 'cos I heard most of the guests were bustin' out their best moves. Mix of Sci-Fi shows - Dollhouse, Stargate Universe, BSG & Caprica and the Guild.  Eliza made it this time so yay.

I actually got home on Monday but I've had so much to do it has taken me this long  *stretches arms wide* to process all the photos and try to recall some of the Q&A details. [livejournal.com profile] acrazywench  and I were con buddies as usual. We had a blast - the guests were awesome and nothing much spoilt our fun except the GPS trying to send us round in circles Monday morning as we tried to escape Heathrow.

Firstly new art - here's Tahmoh.  You may remember that I kept on mentioning that I wanted to do Enver just in case? - well RL got in the way and by the time I saw Miracle Laurie's inadvertent twitter mentioning him on Thursday night, it was just too late to get something passable done. Next time perhaps.



This probably had to be the smallest convention I'd attended - around 300+ people but that just made it feel relaxed and stress free, queueing would not be the main activity this weekend.  Full size photos and notes are all on the pages linked below under the cut.

I've booked three Conventions this year (!!) and the first one is Echo- 1 (Dollhouse)  in May.  We have Dichen, Miracle Laurie, Fran Kranz and Tahmoh Penikett confirmed so I thought I'd better pull my finger out and start sketching. I'm crossing everything in the vain hope that we'll have a surprise guest in the shape of Enver/Olivia/Harry (or even Eliza?)    oh, anyone on the cast really.    It's likely I'll do a montage of 'dolls' and 'rossum employees' to cover all eventualities.

I made these a week or so ago - the wallpapers out of necessity as I got a super wide monitor for Christmas and needed something 1920 wide :D

Here's that awesome sketch by Georges Jeanty (S8 Artist)   from the Saturday. He uses a couple of A4 reference sheets covered in screencaps of the character in various facial positions/expressions. It was great just to watch him work away at the strokes getting the lines so right, brilliant opportunity although mostly you shut up and watch rather than ask questions so as not to break his concentration.


On Saturday I'd had photoshoots with Summer, Adam and Tom (I'd actually missed my previous chances to get a photo with Tom at earlier cons so I had to go for it this time)  All the guests looked great - hee! Denis the Menace jumper Tom, I've scanned the pics here.

It's always tough to get up early for photo shoots especially with parties and such.(I was being good and avoiding red wine all weekend in favour of vodka).   It get's tougher every con. Needless to say Zach, Dichen, Miracle and Felicia all looked bright and sparkly.

Phew lots of photos to sort through.  And muddled brain to rack - acrazywench took shorthand notes of the Q&A 's but I tried to remember things from the Meet and Greet & autograph sessions.

Awesome group shot from Starfury - love the 'whodunnit ' montage. Especially Summer and Felicia's poses.  To see all the photos click on the Guests names to go to the page in the text under the cut.



Day One - Opening ceremony and the Meet and Greet  )

Day Two - Q&A's Q&A's and autograph sessions. )

Hi - I'm back. And an awesome Convention it was indeed.  

I'm going through the photos,  but I'll add a few teasers here.  Amazing guest list (surprises were Dichen Lachman & Tom Lenk - Thomas Dekker had to cancel the day before). Fantastic to meet these guests again and see some new faces.

Took part in the fan invasion and mass purchase of subway sandwiches  (yes, Zach served behind the counter) great fun. Howled out loud  when whiskey vision cam was revealed - Jonathan once again putting a new spin on his  'Sunday morning special' slot. Watched in awe as the most amazing Miracle Laurie  lead Dichen  and Felicia in a Hula dance, accompanied by her fiance Chris on the ukelele. Not before giving two impromptu performances on the uke herself in earlier Q&A . 
  All the guests were  entertaining and upbeat despite all three shows represented, were at that 'waiting for the sword of damocles news on next season pick up.  Once I've sorted the photos I'll post a proper convention report.

You make fan art of course!!!  (and rip clips ' till you're bored silly)   

I've avoided doing too many dollhouse related pieces until I get to see the show which, seeing as the UK are not down for yet (or is that ever?)  will be by nefarious means, no doubt.   

Mostly from promo pics I bring icons and two of walls. Here are a couple of teasers and the rest for the sanity of my flist are behind the cut. 

 

the rest are here ..... ) In other less exciting news I actually started a new vid project - back on familiar ground, source wise,  but floundering again with an editing program that I am 'revisiting'. Seriously, for all the flack that gets flung around about WMM there are somethings that other programs make so goddamn difficult.  Then again, it might just be me.
