trizfores and her fantasies in fanfic

An in depth look behind the scenes and into the mind of the author trizfores.

i don't know why, but it's just been one of those days today in which i just woke up too damn early--as in before 7am. so, i decided to sit in front of the computer and write a bit. but i was wrong, that is not what happened. instead, my creativity decided to flow elsewhere, and that is with photoshop.

honestly, it's been years since i actually touched the program or even something similar to it. i'm serious! shame on me though. i'm supposed to be a multimedia artist, but i really haven't delved on photo manipulating or editing whatsoever in a long time. usually, i like to play around with my digital cameras. then again, the work that i've been doing for some time isn't multimedia related.

stupid and dumb is what i felt like when i opened photoshop. it took me awhile to get around the program and remember the basic tools, but after a few clicks here and there, i managed pretty much. and with that, i ended up making a few arsty fartsy stuff with some photos of alan rickman. hey, he's the reason why i'm in love with snape, and i fell in love with him years before the harry potter books. he's quite a looker with some voice. he is super hot and handsome despite his age--somewhere over 60+. don't kill me! i'm entitled to my own opinions, crushes, fantasies and whatever more.

well, i guess it's safe to say that i'm pleased with the work i've done with photoshop earlier. i was trying to make one of his photos look like it was sketched with color or had some charcoal effect. pretty neat how it turned out. i was following a tutorial and doing some additional stuff on my own.

besides the single picture, i also did some 100x100 icons/avatars. i would have to say i got my inspiration from surfing around lj (livejournal), and checking out a few of the thousands of icons that were in it. i've downloaded a few and used some of them myself.

will i ever post up my own icons in lj? maybe, maybe not. i've had my lj account for some time, and i have yet to post anything on it, even fanfic. some people have told me that it's really the way to get around in the fanfic world--awards, groups, etc. but why? i'm already happy with the few websites that my works are posted in. i can't complain. other than that, i really haven't figured out how to use lj. seems complicated. maybe one day though, i might post my photoshop works and fanfics. never know.

anyways, my brain is completely drained from earlier. i think i'll take a little nap. not sure though if i'm going to write. must sleep...

behind the scenes

GREETINGS! this blog was put up so that you readers would know what i'm doing with my fanfic writing, and anything else related to fanfic. i enjoy reading a few others myself. my stories revolve around hermione granger paired with one of my favorite 3 slytherins--severus snape, lucuis malfoy, and draco malfoy. snape of course is my true love. i think having a thing for alan rickman is the cause of it all. happy reading! :)


about me

My photo
i am 20 something year old that enjoys writing mainly fanfiction in the harry potter universe. i have other things that intrest me such as TV shows and movies, but writing my fanfic is what i do most. so far, it's been a blast posting my stories up on the net, and knowing that people enjoy my work. who knows, maybe one day i'll have my own book. no original stories yet in my mind, so it's just fanfic for now.
