  • Optimization & Post Purge

    Working on optimizing images; image loading times have always been an issue for this site, so these fixes ideally will help.

    I’d like to rethink the entire log structure, which means potentially purging some posts, if things end up going the way I’m hoping it might.

    I consider this site to be pretty transient when it comes to “content”, since it serves primarily as a sketchbook, but I figure it would be fairer to give a warning in the meantime.

    Moving forward, I’m hoping to create a quick updates/journal section for this site, and most posts relating to that will end up there. We’ll see!

  • soundlounge/site 2.0 cont

    The dream…is steadily becoming alive on the SoundLounge. Very happy with the results so far ^^

    The SoundLounge tends to be the guinea pig these days, particularly because it’s more “removed” from personal work.

    • Found a good way to copy a consistent layout across all pages, the best part is it will also copy easily (hypothetically) to the other sites 🙂
    • Responsive layouts!! They are still a little funky here and there but considerably improved, in my experience.
    • New layouts for entry pages so the columns don’t freak out.
    • Need to start thinking about how to wrestle flexbox into submission within WP, the logistics of which…idfk. It’s so much easier in plain HTML/CSS but now we’ve got this…medium to work in lol.

  • Had so many dreams for September, but some wrist pains caused by…clicking a mouse too much in Illustrator and XD??? and some general back pains caused by a poor work setup have put those plans back quite a bit. Honestly surprised it’s only been 15 days since I put myself on break, it feels like way longer.

    Started working on a better ergonomic setup after that bit of annoying wake-up call. It can be hard, as a chronic penny-pinching cheapskate, but it’s one of those things you know you can’t keep bouncing back from like a teenager anymore. Waiting to hear if W*com releases some new tablets for the end of the year (hate them, but their products are damn sturdy), but a replacement for the ol’ tablet is definitely in the works. Can’t keep drawing on a 13HD forever (I think this thing has got to be at least 8 years old now, and god does it run hot.)

    Long way of saying extended hiatus until then, but hopefully will bounce back come December or early next year. In the meantime, been watching a playthrough of Mass Effect again (getting emo about aliens) and pouring a lot of time into a personal DAoL wiki. Extended break isn’t a terrible thing, especially since the dulled compulsion to draw is giving some time for writing (and planning vacations), but I won’t deny that it isn’t a little annoying lol.

    Practicing wrist posture for this one; the going is sloooow.

    It’s…September??? Gotta find some time for birds.

    Recently got Zero’s Negating Cube and it’s deeeefinitely a Twacey Style.

  • August Exorcisms 8

    The international man of mystery in that I still have zero idea how to draw his stupid mug.

  • OC Memes Part 1

    Been taking a break for the end of August to wrap up some business. Hearkening back to the days where we’d just answer meme prompts vs waiting to be asked, I’ve filled out a series of prompts found on Tumblr after the jump.

  • Cutting this month into a half in case I lose steam the second half (honestly counting on it, balancing work-life-fun-personal art gets harder every year).

    That said: pretty happy with how things have been going so far. This month has been a focus on studying old anime I’ve enjoyed, watching media I had a feeling I’d like but had kept putting off, and getting sucked into MMORPG hell.

    Also been taking the time to actively study more in the background, trying to reabsorb knowledge I glossed over the first time.

    Favorite so far this month is a doozy. It’s a toss-up between the Rocco studies and Tracey Embracing Violence in ToF.
