I am on tumblr now!
Well I have been on tumblr for about a year, but now that I have worked out how to get my Wordpress blog to crosspost content it may actually be worth following.
alecatmew.tumblr.com

Almost all content is from my blog which can be found here: ale.chenonetta.com/blog/
Some of the older stuff hasn't been pulled across so it's definitely worth visiting my blog if you want to see everything I get up to! For new stuff, content should automatically get posted to tumblr so you can follow me there if you like.

Blaugust 2012

3 min read
Just a post to say, "Hey, I'm still alive".
Want to know what I've been up to? Check out my blog! I've just spent the month of August updating it with a bunch of art and projects from over the last year. Here's the run-down.

Wednesdays: Pieces from Life Drawing classes

Thursdays: Crafts and construction

Fridays: Duck photos (I got stuck thinking of something to put up for Fridays...)

Saturdays: Walkthroughs

Sundays: Recipes. Since I keep losing track of my recipes, I put some of them together so I could refer back to them later.

Mondays: Digital Art. (Well, that was the plan. Just became "whatever art", much like Tuesdays drifted away from being watercolours)

Tuesdays: Watercolours (Ended up being more along the "sketches and scribbles" vein)

AVCon 2011!

2 min read
Hey guys!

So as usual, I'm involved with AVCon, and this year I'm going to be dragging myself away from video games a bit!

I will be sharing a table in Artists' Alley with :iconrosiecoleman: and I don't know what came over me, but I offered to run a panel on basic watercolour techniques on Saturday morning.

I think I only had the guts to put in a proposal because I thought an actual anime-drawing panel would get picked over my proposed panel. Well, whoops, look at that, I got picked by virtue of a looming print deadline.

So if you have any questions for such a panel, or any art you think would be handy to include in my slides, please let me know. I'll be giving artists full credit, of course! I'm actually kinda interested to do a comparison between copics and watercolours, as being an anime con I expect a number of people will be quite interested in Copics. Anyone want to lend me some Copics? ._.

Apart from the panel, I'll be doing portraits along the lines of alecat.deviantart.com/art/Port… and I also hope to get some prints or other stuff ready too. Provided I can get myself organised... yeah right!

Hey guys,
I know I'm hardly around here but if anyone at all cares about what I'm doing, I update a teensy more frequently on my new blog: ale.chenonetta.com

Brief rundown of what I'm doing:
Working at Internode, an SA based internet service provider. Programming.
Started evening drawing classes at the Adelaide Central School of Art.
Graduated. Finally got the damned piece of paper to say that I'm a computer systems engineer today. Worth it? Meh.

Stuff. See you around.

Hey all,

I got a new computer and am starting to do art on it, which gives me a new opportunity to tackle a problem that always rears its ugly head: how do I sort my art? Should I separate images by when they're drawn, or the style of art? Obviously a project will get a folder of its own, but then do I split it up within the folder? When I save images into a simple format for uploading to the web, do I put them in yet another folder? Do I bother keeping them on my computer at all? (Considering there'll be a version online and I have the original .psd or whatever file.) But then what if I want to keep track of WIP pieces?

It's all so confusing! So tell me guys, how do/would you do it?
