in absentiaI'm away again this month, prolly not too far away from internets, but expect delays in correspondences for up to a week or so ~
apologies for my lack of supportive/random comments over the last year or two, I do log in regular but usually skip my inbox, rarely have time to address anything other than direct queries.
I do keep an eye on things, but at more of a distance.
many thanks to all involved in projects that are too rough as yet to see light of day - those who know me, know how I adore rough works :}
tis the season ~What a busy year this has been~!
You haven't been hearing much from me lately, hardly any comments - not like me at all~! - this has in fact, been the most productive year, artwise.
There's a lot of material created that isn't on dA, or anywhere else (such as the pretty backdrop), and plenty more in continuing production.
Much may not ever be seen - sketchy concepts, just how I like it :} but will remain influential for further projects.
We'll see more next year.
Manymany thanks to those artists who've kept the fires burning~!
Best wishes to you all
stay tuned~!I'll be away on holidays (again~!) for most of this month.
I'm sure to have internet access, but I know from past trips that I won't always have time for it.
From this weekend, I probably won't log in here until I get a day free, which I don't anticipate will happen for a couple of weeks, but you never know ~
Anyhow, although it might seem to be all quiet here, believe me there's a lot of projects in process~!!
Lots of busybusy artists, thank you all :}
Looking forwards to what you all come up with ..
and see you in August~!
hiccupquick notice to say that I'll be away for much of next week ~
will still have internets, can't escape it anywhere~!
but my presence here and response to Notes & messages will be delayed, as navigating sites like dA on a mobile device is like tiptoeing through a minefield of clickables~!
Meanwhile, what's in the works at Alacrityland~?
Most imminent is the new look THEJETTYJETSHOW has been creating for a sci-fantasy Alacrity; a teaser for her face is above (and more on his own page & blog)
A few other character redesigns on their way, most notably by DarrenGeers. who has also been working on a magnum opus :}
Other character studies/references are in the works, by chaos-flare Wotwot and sami-hada, plus concept sketches by Durandus, and something rather different from Bastet-sama
LaceyCrombie and Meiphon have been collab'ing on an extensive pictorial bio, so many amazing sketches~!
Mei is also doing something else, which will simply blow you
phew, thank god that's over~!happy new year, everyone, am glad that we're embarking on 2012 at last~!!
the past year was prettymuch a blur for me, good and bad .. the usual childrearing challenges, plenty of travel (the type where we need a holiday after~!), chasing one personal/family drama after another .. wayy too much randomness than is healthy.
so, fini to the most random hectic and trying year in my memory, good riddance 2011 - the year of the 11ama - and not soon enough~!
but at least dA has been nice to me, what limited time I could escape here, and I hope to be more involved this coming year ~
To cap it off, a few recent features, and hints of some to look forwards to ..
yay, finally received a lovely and distinctive bust from :iconNashya:
verymuch looking forwards to the other I'd commished, which from her last notes, oughta be up as soon as she can get a decent connection ..
another wip by :iconMasterDarken: ..
.. and progressions of his alacrity giftar
Gone for a bit ..hello everyone~!
another journal to say I'll be away in few days ~ this time for a month.
I'll have very limited access to the internet, as anyone travelling overseas with a toddler will know~!
Here's a feature of some recent artworks:
You've seen this one before - but~!
this week, mrpranny has modified her for a smoother animation, put a spring in her step and a bounce to her breasts :}
An Alacrity-acrobat action figurine~?!
Actually a 3D digital model made from scratch, in a kotobukiya style, by anakdesa-baikhati
a pinup trio by doghateburger
As some of you already know, this past year or so I've been pushing Alacrity into a dark-future (with a handful of exceptions).
So here's some cool&sexy samples .. the artist is available right now, by the way ~
still a wip, but well worth a feature~!
Again, part of Alacrity's dark future .. check the artist's gallery to get a bet
Random and Sporadicthat prettymuch sums up my activity here for most of this year ~
which will be even more unpredictable over the next few weeks, as I shall be away on holidays after this weekend.
There will be internets, but my opportunities to access it may vary from "nothing better to do" to a week's abstinence.
This is mostly a heads-up to the following artists, who've been in irregular contact over large~ish and ongoing projects:
:iconbastet-sama: :iconDurandus: :iconFatalholds: :iconJetEffects: :iconRikona: :iconSiegeRedwolf: :iconG-e-e-r-s: :iconSmyton4tw: :iconMarcianek: :iconkandoken:
yes most of them are my regular art-slaves, bless them :}
also the following, who have yet to invoice me:
:iconshikami: :iconklnothincomin: :iconBastet-sama: (for that second project)
You know I'm always prompt about these things, I'm mentioning it here so you know I haven't skipped the country.
well technically I will have but .. I haven't forgotten
I've messaged some of you already, and I should be back in touch
.. almost back~!hi, am still overseas for a couple more weeks, but have a little time to look about online now ~ so many messages~!!
I won't have time until later this week (or next) to comment on anything
(and typing is awkward on this foreign keyboard)
but addressing emails, Notes and of coure any art created, will be my priority when I do.
Here's a quick feature of some works that have appeared in my absence ~
Apologies for any I've missed~!!
[I can't actually view them very well here, have borrowed a little laptop]
I'll be able to comment on them properly when I have access to a better monitor + keyboard
see you all soon~!!

Make deviantArt a fucking better place!!! Part 1Okay, guys,
I think I need to be hard. I am more than 9 years an deviant here on dA. This is good for me to compare the past and now. And maybe have a clue how dA will be in the future.
I have the feeling dA is getting more and more heartless. And I am not the only one. I set up a little poll, and the few who took part gave me this:
The first years I was here, everything here was great! Great artists, nice people who you could talk to (and who talked with you, TOO!), a lot of fun with the community, reaction on my work, reactions on what I wrote for you, feedback like comments and faves and so on. But this has changed extremly. I feel lonely here most of the time. I have no Fun being part of this community anymore. (And I think may have the same opinion, as many left the community)
But what can we do?
This is why I will write some journals, all about this topic. I will tell you my point of few, and

Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!When my friends and I first heard of "that swimming anime" called Free!, this is pretty much what we expected:
Not that there's anything wrong with that hahah, but all we were expecting was to be able to laugh at how exploitable and full of fanservice this show could be because swimming would require everyone to be half-naked. Although it started out that way, the more episodes we watched, the more we realized...
We were wrong. So wrong.
What we got was a heartwarming coming-of-age story with endearing characters and interesting dynamics. It spoke of friendship and learning your self-worth and figuring out what drives you forward.
I'd write more about how I feel about it but it would take up too much time and space over here, so here are a couple of posts that have already done the job well:
1. A detailed literary analysis and trope driven deconstruction of H
