Things will be a bit crazy here for a while. I have had big problems with the site that has made it almost impossible to post Art and updates. I have deleted the old site and I’m now taking time to put things together from the old site, my Beta site and some new stuff. That means this site will be a unfinished work in progress for a while. I’m also using a theme that is of my own design with the idea that it will fit my Art and content better, both current and future content. The theme has a lot of work to before it is done, but I can’t stand the ordinary WordPress themes or other free themes built for other kinds of content anymore and I want my home on the web back on track. 🙂

I also have an idea of posting things beyond Art, but still have some kind of connection to it. We will see what the future beholds! So long friends.

Hello! I haven’t been updating much lately with drawings and other things.  I have been working a bit, I got to earn some money and I have been to tired to draw and write anything on my little free time. But that is going to change right now as it looks I have enough free time to both rest and work with Art. I have also bought a  new Computer Screen to play with.

Also, the site has passed 2000 visitors now!  That was my goal for the summer. Maybe it can go up to 3000 before the end of this year?

Digital drawing and painting problems

I have had problems with my Laptop being to weak and getting to hot while working and the small screen size at 15.6″ ain’t the best size to draw on. To fix those problems I have bought a new Computer Screen at 22 inch. It’s a LG Flatron 2220P Screen with a e-IPS panel if I’m not mistaken. It delivers good colors and a pretty good black and white, for a Computer Screen. The only thing that could really be improved on a Screen would be LED back-light as it would deliver better black and white. For the future I hope that buyers won’t have to choose between a LED TN Panel and a ordinary IPS panels. A IPS panel with LED is Gold, just look at a new iMac, is that is pretty or what?

Next of improvements for me will be making the Laptop run cooler and save up money by working  so I can buy a new computer to use with my new Screen.

Or more like 800 unique IP adresses has visited this site since it’s start, Spring 2009. I don’t know how many of them are SPAM carriers, but that number should be low. It feels like this is only the start on the way to become a more visited site!

:party:

I should soon be back to more regular updates. I’m also waiting to get my hands on a Wacom Intuos 4 tablet. That should make it even more easy to draw then before. It was sad when my Wacom Intuos GD tablet broke, but I have been drawing a bit by hand. From now on I think I will mix my digital drawing with my drawing on paper some more.

ArtRage 3 Studio has now finally been released! There are two versions, Studio and Studio Pro. Studio Pro is more expensive then I would have thought, even with upgrade discount. Nothing to do about, ArtRage 3 Studio Pro is probably worth every penny and 2.5 version was really good with a price of almost nothing!

But I don’t have that kind of money, especially not right now, so I will probably upgrade my ArtRage 2.5 edition to ArtRage 3 Studio this weekend. It will be fun to play with! 😀

First two weeks, ArtRage 3 Studio and Studio Pro will be a tad cheaper then the ordinary price if anyone is interested. Look at the official site for more information.

More about this homepage

I’m updating small things around the site, from code to post categories. Hopefully I will also have a email address connected to the site soon. I will hopefully have a working email address for this site soon. Fingers crossed. :hammer:

I’m right now working on building a job application in HTML/CSS, 2 SketchUp projects and a multi character ArtRage Image that I might use as a new header for this homepage. That and other things takes up allot of time and I’m not that good at time managing for personal work, yet.

But I do miss putting up Art on the homepage and I would like to do it at least one time a week. So that’s what I’m going to do! I will be putting something new or updated on the blog atleast ones a week untill the end of 2009. That will be at least 4 updates. 🙂

But I’m aiming a bit higher then that! I have some planning to do. Choosing what I should work on and maybe finding some thing that ain’t on the blog that I want to show. Maybe even something on the homepage that has missed the spotlight! The first of the 4+ posts will be Online sometime tomorrow!

I will also try to link posts that has something to do with each other so visitors can more easily follow up on drawings and other projects.

2010

For next year I’m working on some plans as I want 2010 to be the best year in a long time! I will soon present some goals for the next year when it comes to my art and this site.

I have made changes that hopfully will give a more easily navigated site. Pages affected are “Home” (the startpage) that now has some of the information on the right column and the “About” page that no longer exist. Instead of the “About” page there now is “My Profile” that has all what the former page had and much more, now divided over under pages that exist in the right column when viewing “My Profile”.

One new addition to “My Profile” is “My Wishlist” where I list things I want. More changes will come.

Hopefully I will have some new updates when it comes to art in the end of this month or beginning of December.

ArtRage 3 is on the way, so when it get’s released and I get my hands on it, then it will be happy time!

A while sense I posted anything the last time. I’m working on one of my best drawings to this date and when it’s finished it might be right on the top or the best drawing so far!

I will spoil so much that the theme of the drawing is Star Trek. I won’t post it until I think it is ready for the Internet and even then, it might be far from done.

Not much else in works.

September has been this homepage most successful month when it comes to visitors (and unsuccessful spambots). The future is bright. But I have to do something about the menu-bar as some people have problems seeing it and navigate with it.

That’s all for this time, I think. It’s late here, time to sleep! 😀

Now in a few days I have updated the main font to Courier New for a nicer look, made some changes to the startpage, menu and sidebar. Also, all of the background is white for now. More changes will come. But mostly, new materials will be added.
