This is an Edited Cross-Post from Monday Molly Musings (January 5, 2015) about Christmas Vacation Projects
Project #3 = Daughter's Superhero RPG Covers
About once a month or so, we play a role-playing game with the Peer family at their house. I've written about it a lot more on my Family Gaming blog. Because it's a super-hero game, my artistic daughter had the brilliant idea to immortalize each of the RPG adventures in a pretend comic book cover recap. She pencils and I ink and then colour a scanned reproduction. I have to say that it's very relaxing to trace lines and colour pictures. These three covers took about two evenings to complete. You can see the other seven "issues" here and here.
Project #4 = Son's Minecraft Book Trailer
My children received some nice presents for Christmas, including some Minecraft mini-figures as well as the novel Descent into Overworld by Liam O'Donnell. This book is special to us because we had a chance to be "beta-readers" before it was published. My son and I decided to make a mini-video promoting the book using our iPad's StoMo software. It took a bit longer than usual because we accidentally filmed upside down and used Windows Movie Maker instead of iMovie to assemble the final product. It took a half-day to finish.
