Still Learning…

Priestess

I’m not really happy with this image. I really like the costume…but I can never get it to work with anything! And something about this whole scene is a bit…bleurgh.

What I do like–and I learnt from playing about with the rock I left in the scene–was how to puppet wrap an image. Which is how the magical symbols are around the sword. So I am pleased with that. ๐Ÿ™‚

I can’t help myself…

research books

This is how it starts…

I have an idea–a little rabid bunny that won’t leave me alone–and so I need to research it. Because more ideas flow as I dive into wiki pages, and people’s blogs and then, then, it’s not enough. I need a book. One that’s specific to my research…

I have a plan for two fantasy romance novels involving astrology and prophecy. (It’s still brewing, by the way…) And I stumbled across this brilliant book. Yes, it’s an academic text, but it teaches you how to cast a horoscope via ancient methods…and the society, the structure these astrologuers lived in… Bliss!

Ancient Astrology - Tamsyn Barton

Ah, but then…

I see that this book isย a part of a series, Sciences of Antiquity.

You can guess where this went, can’t you…?

It went here:

 

And writing this post…I found one in the series I’d missed. Ancient Meteorology. How? How did I miss this??

So, it’s now on my wish-list. No, I really, truly can’t help myself… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Just to add, if you want to follow me down this path, some of these titles are OP and I got them second hand.
