When writing fiction, visualising characters is the most important part to me. Characters are almost always the basis of my stories. I got into a habit of trying to recreate their appearance with Cast Cards, used a lot on fanfiction forums.

This blog is simply a celebration of art in images and a way to mentally 'see' people and places featured in my stories. Massive Disclaimer: most (if not all) of the images do not belong to me (I found a lot of them on Google) and I have only used them to create a different artistic view, so all due respect is given to the creator or artist of the images when possible.

Queen Of Diamonds

I loved making the banners to these. I loved it to itty bitty pretty pieces. It just seemed much more unique than my other ideas. I'm sure you'll recognise some of the celebrities.

The Story

I wrote this one for the lovely Adrienne Kanee`. Dash included. The basic story follows five long-time friends trying to hide/deal with/make the best of their poker (gambling) addiction with disastrous consequences.

However, due to my inability to to write a proper story from start to finish in any way shape or form I have no idea what those consequences would be. I could barely get past the start of the story, which was a shame, because the characters were screaming at me to make them into something.

Kiss Kiss Bandits Member Banners

And of course, I eventually got bored enough to make these.

Chante's was the very first banner -all of the others are based on the structure of hers. These were made for the Bandits, the girls who were reading the story and supporting, musing over the possible happening of the plot. Thank you girls. DVTJ never would have been so long without you.

The Images

Microsort Word, Paint. Found the pictures off Google. Lovely, aren't they? I may have used some twice for other story banners, possibly in the Fury's Finest banners.

Kiss Kiss Bandits Ad Banners

First, a brief explanation.

The Kiss Kiss Bandits is a part fictional legon I created in 2010. Fictional, because I created it for a story I was writing, Divas, Vixens, Thugettes, Juliets. Non-fictional, because my readers were so enthusiastic that we made the REAL Kiss Kiss Bandits, which I must say was very fun.

The Images

The Images above were the advertisement banners for the group (the banners for the story were slightly different and I will post those shortly). As we were using the Kiss Kiss Bandits forum at the time, the banners would go in signatures (aka. siggy) and the small square pictures as avatars (aka. avii). The very first ones were the top banners for the forum itself.

The ones with my signature on it, mzdarkstar, were the ones I did. The ones with Noir were by a lovely girl called Shakira who wrote the most beautiful prose. I think some are still available for reading on the Kiss Kiss Bandits forum (link above).

The following images were ones I collected to inspire me for the pictures above. You can, no doubt, guess what the KKB's theme is now.
