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. http://alecatmew.tumblr.com Almost all content is from my blog which can be found here: http://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.

AVCon 2011!

AVCon 2011!

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 ~rosiecoleman (https://www.deviantart.com/rosiecoleman) 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 kn

Updates and where to find me.

Updates and where to find me.

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: http://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.

How do you organise your art?

How do you organise your art?

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 confusi

Art dump, ahoy!

Art dump, ahoy!

Wow. I haven't been here in over two years. Crazy how the time seems to fly and trudge along at the same time. Over the next week or so I hope to start uploading the art I've done in that two year break. Maybe I'll even start snooping around to catch up with what's been going on around these parts...

Back. Kinda.

Back. Kinda.

I'm not really back. I just thought I better say hello again. I've wiped the thousand or so messages that I amassed while I was away. I've been through some people's galleries, but not others. If you want me to look around yours, poke me! I said that I'd do the sketches and the pimping but really, my heart's not in it. Sorry, but you won't be seeing that at the moment. So, while I was away, I joined ComicSpace and uploaded stuff there. The GIHS comic is old, but there's a page of Kyari's Kingdom and a three-page thingy that are probably going to remain exclusive-ish to my ComicSpace page. While we were in America I got a lot of sketching

2006, 9000, 10, and other such numbers.

2006, 9000, 10, and other such numbers.

I've been pretty silent, but I have been alive and I'm ready to report on what's going on! Well, 2006 is coming to a close, and looking back on a year of art, I'm pretty pleased with what I've done. What about you guys? Found a new style? Made huge progress? Also, with exams and various other stuff, I managed to miss the fact that I got 9000 hits. So a big thanks to all of you out there! Maybe I'll do something to celebrate at 10,000. But you know me, whenever I say something, I don't actually do it. Eh. Quilth (https://www.deviantart.com/quilth) totally pimped me out, (yo) and so I have to do the same! I'll look through the galleries of the first 10 people to post here

Sketches Meme

Hey, We all know the deal. I'm claiming a sketch from the awesome !poinko (https://www.deviantart.com/poinko) and now you can claim one from me. First 10 people to reply (not sure if there will be 10, hrm) get a sketch by me, just give me a link to a description or reference. Then you have to offer the same in your journal! Ask away! (Oh, and I said I wouldn't plug my progress with the

8000 hits! Quick update.

8000 hits! Quick update.

Whoa. Just updating, hey. I had a slight art slump lately, but I've also been working on that list of 100 things, you've seen it around, right? You can see my progress here I won't bother you with anymore updates for that until it's all done. On other fronts, I want to get down to some realism. Or something closer to it than the cartoons I've been doing lately. Unfortunately, I don't really have the time... I don't like to break up time spent on picture, especially a digital one. Actually, I feel like a bit of portraiture... hrm. Lastly, I'm playing around with my avatar and what I want to use. So if you don't recognise me around, well,

Comic hosting?

Comic hosting?

While I'm not yet ready to get Da Capo out there, I do want to find a place to host it. I know my brother probably doesn't want the traffic through his site, however small... and I don't want to have to update the pages manually or install some updater script on his server. (I have no idea how, for starters >__> ) So... I know of Comic Genesis (Keenspace) and uh... that's it. Anyone have suggestions or comments about their experiences with hosts? It'll all be greatly appreciated!

Drastic Measures

Drastic Measures

With exams and study, I managed to accumulate over 300 messages... and while I feel really guilty about doing this I know that I'll just continue to put off a return to this place if I don't clear them. And I honestly don't have the patience to go through each. So I've just trashed them all. I could sugar coat that, but really, that's what I've done. I'm really sorry for not being around, and I will hopefully get to each of your galleries in time. Meanwhile, I might actually upload some more art! Hurrah!
