... well, apparently the fake tree won in the end... nobody watered the real tree... i blame myself for that, because I noticed it was there, yet did nothing about it...

lol villz, it was a money tree! those things dont even die when you set fire to them! (*cough* so im told). if you left it outside it would still be alive lol. good thing is, all you need is a couple leaves or a branch from another, shove it in the dirt, WATER IT and itll grow back in no time. those shriveled bits may even have a chance

it is not drugs, it is lack of human contact...
i think, i don't know, sure it is drugs... let's blame that shall we?
oh, how to fix too much drugs, go to doctor, get more drugs, great fix...
fuck off
that rabbit is nice

ps, i dont want money... should i still plant it?
i dont really want it to die, but what it represents makes me want to burn it

I still see some bits of green in there Ville, hope is not lost!
Clear out the dead bits, put the green bits in the dirt, water it and who knows, it might bounce back.

My money tree was owning when I moved into my new place, then after a couple of months it lost all the green and parts of it kept breaking off when I'd touch it. I think I was over watering it. Now it seems to be growing again. I don't think it was getting enough sun either so I keep the blinds open near it.

what lens/camera did you use for that shot? think it might have been a bit better if it was a bit sharper/in focus?? army men arent really well molded to begin with!


i guess this can go in here, had to get a shot of the new batteries cos well... theyre awesome

lol, those are some colourful batteries

yeh took with the holga lens on the d80... really not good for focus no... not close up especially, should have put the macro on it, that or just used a normal lens, but i didnt have it with me that day, so a bunch of garbage shots resulted, but army men scattered

^ i think it wouldve been cooler to see that scenario set up with real building in the background. some colour on the drawn bits will make it pop a bit more too. either that or more detail (patience?) when cutting out the scenery would work too


finally got around to shooting one of my fave figures not quite how i originally pictured it but it seems to work (:

alot of the time was just trial and erroring seeing what works best by dummying bits on to see how they look. its time consuming but you get a more cohesive product in the end. this was actually the 3rd incarnation, the main thing is not being scared (or lazy) to pull it apart and start again (or strip and repaint it)
