Fandom: Aquaman/DCU
Characters: Aquaman
Content Notes/Warnings: bare pecs and a delicious happy trail, so use your judgement about where to open it!
Medium: digital painting

Artist Website/Gallery: Razzah on DA
Why this piece is awesome: Almost all the Aquaman art I'll be reccing is from after the current Momoa incarnation came out, but some, like this, date from the casting announcement before we got to see what costume DC were planning. I like the various fusions of old Aquaman details with the artists' imaginations that result, and this is a good example. It's also as hot as hell - wait for the pic to load then click through for the close up - it's worth it! (Those eyes, the pecs, the hairy belly, ulp).

Why this piece is awesome: Because [tumblr.com profile] tcustodisart is THE artist to check out if you're a fan of Mikeyway. Their site is filled to the brims with Mikeyway throughout the MCR eras and beyond.

Deer Eyes is a good example of how well this artist can depict Mikeyway's occasionally haunting yet always sharp gaze. Surrounded by darker hues, your eyes can't help but focus on this Mikeyway: a little awkward and a little friendly. If anything, the doodle style enhances the overall vibe.

Bite-sized Anti-procrastination

Little by little we get over the hurdle, past the obstacle and little by little we make a difference. We may not have the time, the energy, the power or the ability to tackle the whole, but if we examine things carefully we can find the bit that we can do, the progress that we can make - the steps that begin the journey.

In the middle of the week, we have our anti-procrastination day. It's a great opportunity to look carefully at the things we've been avoiding starting and thinking about why we aren't getting anywhere with them. There are any number of reasons and it really doesn't matter what they are, they were good reasons before, but now is our chance to reevaluate and to begin to look for a way past them. Remember - this comm is not about having to manage to complete the whole of a task in one go, it's about finding first the way to start and then the way to continue it until we can overcome it. Tasks don't have to be daunting and beyond us, because all we're looking for at any time is the next step.

Can you think of something that you'd like to begin? Something that bit by bit you could overcome? What's today's part of that task going to be (or tomorrow's if today's is the planning stage)?

Here we go! Let's Halloween!

FIRST: This is based on an event I participated in back in 2008. I've tried to modernize it a bit, but I will be the first to admit it may not be perfect and I am quite willing to make changes if warranted. Also, I firmly encourage participants to make their own changes/additions if they so desire, as long as a couple of basic guidelines are followed.

1. Copy This!



2. It'll give you something like this to paste in your journal:


[community profile] monthlysupergo

Kalloway's Door


DW username: [personal profile] kalloway
AO3 username: [archiveofourown.org profile] kalloway

You may get: Fic! (drabbles-or-longer), icons, recs, meta, picspam, etc.

Please leave me: A fandom, pairing, character and/or prompt, or a general request. Multiple requests are fine! Or just leave a 'fic or treat' and you could get anything!

Light is on for: everyone from SuperGo, everyone in my dwircle, anyone wandering by! No need to have your own door post. Don't be shy!

Fandoms, etc.: Saint Seiya, Final Fantasy VII/AC, Final Fantasy VIII, Gundam SEED/Astray/Destiny, Gundam 00, Twin Signal, Kiddy Grade, Macross/Frontier, Generator Gawl, Gundam Build Fighters, Voltron: Legendary Defender, Tekkaman Blade II, any of my original stuff, anything with dragons or robots/mecha, or float me an inquiry because I'm sure there's plenty I haven't listed.

Other info: DNW flat out rape/non-con, but everything else is open~


3. Customize if desired.

4. However-
• If you post a door, you must have it at least open to other [community profile] monthlysupergo members. Opening it to the rest of your circle and visitors is up to you.
• Try to give something to everyone who knocks.
• If you knock, you may get the fic of your dreams, or picspam of your fave, or an icon of skittles or other silliness. That is all okay. It is just like real trick-or-treating where you don't know what you'll get and you have no expectations to bring home a sack of king-size butterfingers.
• Now I want a Butterfinger, dammit.
• SAY THANK YOU!

5. Leave a link to your Door in the comments.

6. If I've totally bungled something, especially the HTML, let me know. ^^;;

7. Feel to put up your Door any time between now and the 31st; try to give out fics, treats, etc. on the 31st.

Go Knock On These Doors! )

Why this piece is awesome: for one thing, it follows the red and black aesthetic of the art I recced previously. What really caught my eye about it, though, was that, for a simple portrait of a relaxed-looking Frank, there are certain touchtones. Among those, his penchant for wearing hats and 8948416854 layers of clothing. I also dig the geometric touches that enhance, rather than distract, from the overall piece.

 Anyone else going attempt NaNoWriMo this year?

For the first time in years, I am seriously planning on writing a story. I have no plot, but my main characters are loud and demanding.
