I’m sorry for the slowness of several of my sites recently. It’s due to the server being busy because of so many busy sites. My host will be adding two new servers, and will move many sites from the current server to the new ones to ease server load. This should make all sites faster again. They’ll be working on this the next several days, including the weekend.
I don’t know yet whether my sites will be moved or not. I’ll let you know once I know. Some sites, such the Xena and The Vampire Diaries sites, the gallery is so slow when I try to add pics that it’s next to impossible to do it until it’s working better. So no updates at least on those particularly slow galleries until the server load eases.
Made this wallpaper a week or two ago, featuring Jeri Ryan:
I’ve started to do some non-digital art in addition to Photoshop stuff since May. Mostly prompted by the fact the my migraine’s been bad enough that I can’t be on the computer as much as I’d like, but I still wanted to do some art, preferably something colorful.
I’ve always loved colors and lovely abstract paintings, and for some reason I’d been watching a lot of videos on Youtube about acrylic painting. I’m not sure how that happened – I’ve never really been before interested in painting, or knitting or anything I’d do with my hands except baking. I think it’s because I’d been spending a lot of time on Etsy, and been seeing all these wonderful craft items people have made and are selling, such as paintings, handmade journals, handmade dyed paper and so on.
So I decided to try some acrylic painting myself! It doesn’t smell and looked like a lot of fun. I quickly discovered I love acrylic pour painting! It’s much fun, but also quiet and meditative. I made a post about it over at Crystal Fires back in May, with photos of my first attempts.
During the summer I made around 10 acrylic pour paintings, here are photos of some of the best ones: Continue reading Acrylic Pouring
I’ve always wanted to make a wallpaper featuring Osiris from Stargate SG-1 but somehow never got around to it… until now 🙂
I’ve added 11 textures which can also be used as digital paper.
300DPI / 3600×3600
Head to Textures & Digital Papers page to see previews and to download.
I’m finally done re-uploading and re-posting everything. It was a huge undertaking and took me over 40 hours of work to get everything up again, spread over several days. I’m sorry it took so long!
While going through things and re-organizing, I even found two wallpapers that I apparently had uploaded to my deviantart but never to here, or at least they weren’t among my files here. Not sure what happened there. I made them in 2011, and I’m pretty sure I made both of them for a landcomm challenge on Livejournal if I remember correctly
I wanted to re-organize the backend, and the only way to do it cleanly without deleting images I shouldn’t and leaving images I didn’t actually need was a clean restart. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while now…
