Seraphim has thrown herself into travelling, blogging, and painting…

SadGirl2

… sitting up alone in her apartment, listening to Elle King singing ‘Good Thing Gone’…

SadGirl3

… surrounded by all her comfortable, familiar stuff…

SadGirl4a

… stuff that never hurts her, or lets her down… stuff that she can understand…

… when the music ends, it’s too quiet, and she’s still alone.

The Rookie WIP

TheRookieWIP

It’s been too long since Seraphim did a painting. She needs to feel passionate about what she paints, and can’t really just make herself paint unless she really loves her subject. She recently watched ‘Alita: Battle Angel’, and loved it to bits, as she knew she would. She now has several paintings planned, but has started with this one. The full title will be The Rookie: “How you doin?”… Seraphim loved the scene where Alita, the rookie, rolls up to the start-line for the trials, and is her usual happy, cute self, being friendly to the hardened killers all around her, not realising they are all there for only one reason… to kill her! Of course, as soon as she is warned about this, we see her face change from happy teenaged android, to totally confident, 300-year-old killing machine!

This may look pretty amateur at this stage, it’s only an hours work… give it a few more hours, Seraphim knows, from experience, it will look fabulous.

The Promise

ThePromise

Today, Seraphim visited ‘The Promise’…

ThePromise2

… the recommended windlight is very stark, has a very limited palette…

ThePromise3

… Seraphim loaded black & white into her camera drones, just knowing it would look stunning…

ThePromise4

… she wasn’t wrong…

ThePromise5

… it did.

Continuing a Theme…

CornHub

This morning, Seraphim took her new D-Lab Flying Saucer for a spin, later that day, she read this post, by the always-interesting Ricco Saenz, it led her to the Cornhub sim, a sim whose theme is…

CornHub4a

… flying saucers…

CornHub5

… flying saucers and apocalyptic decay with that usual Fallout flavour…

CornHub7a

… as someone who actually is from another planet, Seraphim finds this stuff delightful…she loved the palette/lighting here, finding the juxtaposition of colour/harshness quite beautiful.

 

UFO Trippin’

ufoTrip

Seraphim had one last D-Lab flying vehicle to take for it’s first spin. Accordingly, she climbed into her D-Lab Flying Saucer, and set out from Bunny Field…

ufoTrip2

… she flew past Tattoo parlours…

ufoTrip3

… road-side diners…

ufoTrip4

… cafe’s…

ufoTrip5

… marina’s…

… cosy gardens…

ufoTrip7

… and road-side attractions…

ufoTrip8

… finally landing on the ground floor of Placebo Gallery, which she has decided to keep. She stood, for a long time, looking at a picture of her beautiful, sweet Zoey, wishing with all her heart to see her soon. When she bought her D-lab flying vehicles, she specifically got the two-seater ones, except the Inago, which was just too cool not to get, so she could take Zoey with her on flying adventures. She hopes that will still happen.

Space Truckin’

When Seraphim bought her D-Lab SP-Inago, she also bought several other D-Lab flying vehicles, one of which was this super-cute D-Lab Mini Air Truck. She took it for it’s inaugural spin around the block, today, going left from her gate platform, this time, and right around the block, so she came back from the right…

spaceTruck2

… it’s years since she’s made this circuit and, though there was the usual wasteland where once there were homes and shops, she found the coastal part still built up, and even saw some places that were there years ago…

spaceTruck3

… the coast was very picturesque…

spaceTruck4

… and, heading back inland, it was nice to see the cute topiaries beside the Circuit La Corse…

spaceTruck5

… she flew her gorgeous little space truck on into the dusk…

spaceTruck7

… really enjoying being on the road again, free as an alien in a levitating truck…

spaceTruck8

… finally touching down, once more, in the ‘Bunny Field’, next to her gate platform… home again, home again.
