03 Nativity Shed with Art by DragonTamer2000
03 Nativity Shed with Art
Now for the grand finale.  I'm still working out what materials will be available, but even if all I can lay hands on is paint, this should give a very basic idea of how the shed will look when opened up, before the figures are added.  The Star of Bethlehem will hopefully be in reflective paint, or more ideally in something that can be lit with solar power.  The black area in the middle (the doorway) will be about three feet deep and backed by a wall separating the nativity from the rest of the shed, which could be used for anything from a chicken coop to a plain old tool shed.  During most of the year, the figures and all related decor will simply be in the foremost section.

So, that's my idea.  Let me know what you think.

Merry Christmas!

02 Nativity Shed Doors Open by DragonTamer2000
02 Nativity Shed Doors Open
This next diagram show the doors open.  Please note that the opening behind the doors (outlined in red) is actually smaller than the area of the doors themselves, partly to give more room for making the front end good and solid, and partly for the aesthetic purposes of the shed (see figure 3, whch actually gives a more accurate idea of the size and shape I have in mind for the doorway).  The front doors (outlined in blue), as you can see, will cover almost the entire front of the shed (black) when opened, which is actually their main purpose.  The top door (the downward-pointing triangle from fig 1) will be held in place by hooks.

01 Nativity Shed Doors Closed by DragonTamer2000
01 Nativity Shed Doors Closed

In honor of the most famous carpenter in history, and the Christmas season in general, I decided to show a design I've cooked up for a shed I'm hoping to build in the next few years to showcase my Nativity scene at Christmas time.   Please forgive the crudeness of the pictures.

This first one shows the shed more or less as it would look with the doors closed; structure outlined in black, doors in red.   As you can see, the door design is a little... unusual.

Well, I've been gone from DA for a long time, so here's a quick update.  I'll no longer be submitting Farmville art; as much fun as it was, it's too time-consuming.  I may try to brush up on my art skills over the winter, but my main focus is on writing.

I currently have one completed fantasy novel, and more in progress.  No word yet on publication, though I'm working on it.  I was going to post samples of my books in progress on here, but after considerable thought I decided this site wouldn't offer enough protection of my material.  However, I will be posting fan fiction on here, at least in teaser form.

A quick list of some of my ideas:

New and improved versions of the Toby Series (some of you may know it from Balto Source)
A few anthro-verse stories about the Balto cast, rated T just to be safe
An X-Men story called "The Genosha Project" about a non-mutant journalist spending a year among mutants
A Bambi fanfic, yet to be detailed
Land Before Time stories, yet to be detailed

I'm also considering my own version of a rebooted Road Rovers series, which I know would be a thorny idea for many fans of the old show.

All thoughts or questions are welcome; let me know what interests you!

Sorry to report this, but after consideration I've decided against posting teasers of my work on here.  I'm wary of the Terms of Use, and my understanding of the staff's respect (or lack thereof) for intellectual rights leads me to think that anything other than fan fiction is best left off of here.
