    Catching up post 3: silliness with narwhals

    narwhal Spike
    This August, sb_fag_ends celebrated its 5th anniversary with a comment party (posting and responding to prompts in the comments). Besides making a Spuffy cocktail version of Harmony's Spuffel fantasy from Buffy S10 #10 in response to the "Spuffy drink cocktails" prompt, I was also inspired to create some artwork by foxstarreh's narwhal prompt, or more precisely, by the delightful narwhal!Spike fic that shapinglight wrote in response to that prompt.

    At some point in shapinglight's story, Spike wonders how he is going to eat without his horn getting in the way. Good question, I thought. Somehow I'd always thought that narwhals used their horns to spear fish, but on second thought that seemed rather impractical.

    When googling to find out how narwhals do eat, I stumbled across a site with The 7 Most Interesting Narwhal Facts. Some of these facts turned out to be pretty interesting indeed (I thought so at the time, anyway) and inspired me to create some silly pictures:

    Summary

    Here is a whole bunch of icons that I had not yet posted to my LJ. I made them for the past round of seasonal_spuffy, which had as its theme "A New Era". That made me think of the Aquarius song from Hair (This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius), so I decided to make icons for each zodiac sign. Each icon comes in two versions: one with, and one without the zodiac symbol. There are also a few extras. ETA: I added a few more extras for the Pisces symbol icon, because I've never been happy with that one (the version without symbol is fine).

    Summary

    I wasn't happy with my Oz icon at all, and I'm really lucky it didn't get me eliminated right off the bat. Based on the feedback I made a new version (1a below), but unfortunately that one sucks too. I still like the concept, but I guess it needs a better icon maker to execute it properly.

    My Anya icon I was actually happy with, but it still got me eliminated. According to feedback, the icon was too busy and the font colours didn't fit with the rest. So I made a new, more subdued version (2a), but I find it a bit boring. I actually really like the bright pink (and it's on the Game of Life box too, anyway) so 2b is now my favourite version.

    The Dawn icon I made for the comeback challenge (combining two textures from colorfilter; below are the single-texture versions) got me back into the game, but that only lasted until the next challenge. At least I got the chance to icon punk!Spike, which is always a pleasure. Below is a full colour variant, but I like the one with black and white Spike better.

    Spike against Satanklaas by Double Dutchess

    Summary

    WARNING: ONLY FOR VIEWERS OF 16+ YEARS OLD.

     

    Background information: Saint Nicholas (in Dutch, Sint Nicolaas or Sinterklaas for short) is basically the Dutch version of Father Christmas / Santa Claus. He travels across the rooftops on his horse, and his helpers go down the chimney to leave presents for children who have been good. This takes place on 5 December (supposedly Saint Nicholas' birthday), not at Christmas.

    In the Dutch horror thriller "Sint" (2010), "Saint" Nicholas is actually an evil robber from Medieval times who was burned to death on 5 December 1492, and since then returns every full moon on 5 December to go on a killing spree.

    The vid is an Angel the Series / Sint crossover where Spike and the Angel team take on the evil demon "Sint" Nicholas on 5 December. The song I used is "Satanklaas", a heavy metal spoof version of a popular Dutch Sinterklaas song. This is a literal translation of the refrain:

    Satanklaas, you know him well
    Satanklaas, Satanklaas, we'll all go to Hell
