Hey everyone, its been kind of a busy month for me I’ve posted three time already and its not even November!!! w00t I feel like I’m on a roll, I’m finally getting that buzz back that I used to get when I did art work, its been too long, I just wish I had more time to do the work! but that is me being lazy but its coming along. quite a bit update this weekend, I went through my old Live Journal and downloaded all my old icons, and there was quite a lot of the. well I’ve uploaded them here for you, I have also added new affiliates and new wallpapers. I also have plans for some more HTML/CSS tutorials, I want to do a CSS structure post, and show people a basic PHP include.
Icons: Not only have a got loads of the old ones up, but I have also made some new Legend of the Seeker icons from the very first episode. Well lets see, a list of all the old ones
Fanart: I have two new pieces of fanart, from a challenge at Buffy Forums, and this challenge is really cool basically to create a wallpaper to do with either fate of connect a character with a star sign, well I’ve done the latter, and I wanna do one for each star sign, I doubt I’ll submit them all, probably wont finish them before the end of the challenge but I want to create all the star signs and here are the two I’ve done so far.
Its been a busy couple of weeks for me, work has really been taking its tole but I haven’t forgotten Elucidation Art, in fact I have even won an award over at Buffy Forums in the past month for my Tears wallpaper I plan on entering a few more challenges, but I am finding some of the subjects really challenging, they really make you work for it over at Buffy Forums lol, but I guess that’s why they have some of the best Fanartist on the web.
Okay so its October so another Site of the Month, and this month it goes to Brinneydee Designs!
Reason: I have recently found Brinneydee Designs and I have fallen In love with the designs and wallpapers she has created, I really enjoy the fresh and creative ways she presents her work, she is able to focus on the character essence in her artwork, and inject it with amazing colour and vibrancy to each piece of artwork.

So like I said I have dome some art work which is below and I have also made a collection of icons for Legend of the Seeker season two that you can check out
and here are the latest wallpapers I have created.
Unfortunately this is almost a week late, I was on holiday last week an although I didn’t go abroad, which I never get to do anyway (*grumble*) I’ve been down south away from my computer so I’m very sorry for the delay but I would love to announce my Site of the Month September 2010 as Immortal Memories, I have been a huge fan of Monica for ages, and her artwork keeps getting better!
Some of you may have seen my Birthday Bundle I put up, I’m keeping an eye on the poll at the bottom of the site, so please keep voting, and this bundle came as a result of the poll, so if you want to download it you can download it here or view the individual downloads in the gallery.
I Love Immortal Memories, I have for a very long time, Monica has such a clean and fresh style of fanart, each piece is clear and high quality, the best images with the best textures, I love the crisp feel to her art work. Not only does Monica have an amazing fanart site with helpful donwloads which I have used over the years, but she also has an amazing gallery of images, it is so hard to find quality images especially of TV shows usually they are small or poor screencaps from the tv, [read more
I have also done a few pieces of art work over the month of August W00t I told you I would lol.
Wow July really flew by, I have been so bogged down with work I haven’t had chance to do a single piece of art work… ok probably a big fib but I have been so tired from working that I haven’t had the energy to spend all day on the computer and come home and spend all night on the computer as well, this is one of the draw backs of finding a job in something that you enjoy doing as a hobby it doesn’t make it an enjoyable hobby, as well as draining all the inspiration out of you… but enough whining, I vow to make at least one piece of art work every week of August, and by George I will do it lol.
One new affiliate this update, so I would like to welcome Reviews Gone Askew to Elucidation Art
Since its a new month there is a new Site of the Month: Vision award, and this month is dedicated to the hard work and beautiful artwork of Bre at Primordial Souls
I have been a fan of Bre at Primordial Souls for a long time now. I love how she presents her work and how unafraid she is to try something new, the different way she experiments with light and colour blows me away. She has an amazing skill of bring different images together, her work always looks so delicate and intricate every time I look at a piece of work by Bre… [read more]
Its been a month already, where does the time fly, well I have just put the finishing touches to the new site of the month award which I am going to award to Dana over at Chosen Art check out the award below and the awards page with the new Site of the Month I also have three new affiliates, and one new piece of fanart which you can see further down in this post. take a look at the amazing new affiliates below:
( post a comment on any blog post or use the contact form here to become an affiliate )
I have been a huge fan of Chosen Art since I got into the fanart biz, and Dana has been a real inspiration over the years, she has this amazing talent for creating fictional scenes, especially with her work with SMG and Dean Winchester, I have seen over time her skill develop and with each new piece get get even more jealous of that skill.
I don’t have much else for an update as I have been really busy with my paid work 🙁 (well avoiding my paid work when I get home so I feel bad if I do fun work) but I did manage to add one new piece of art work, one piece I have wanted to do for a while now, I have finally finished watching Supernatural up to the end of season 5 and I love it, to my soul lol, but I have never seen any fanart on Bobby Singer, and I thought his character was totally amazing in the show, so I’ve created my own, and I’m really happy with it, I wanted to work mainly with stock photography as you see a lot of that kind of art now, and I wanted to pull away from the type of artwork that I am probably most know for (over kill with the Gradient maps lol I know I know its just so easy to use gradient maps to give it a feel) but I tried something new and I think it came out alright.
A quicky update today, I have some wonderful new affiliates that you need to checkout, and some brand new fanart as well. I wanted to post these affiliates earlier but I didn’t have enough to put into one post so here goes you can view the affiliates here or you can go and see all my affiliates on this page.
The brand new fanart; Well I think I might be going over board on the supernatural, but my fear is that I’ll watch up the latest episode and I wont have made any, so you will probably see a lost more fanart in the coming weeks regarding supernatural. but I’ve thrown in a new twilight piece just to mix things up a little bit though.
So its the month of June, and Elucidation has been up a month, and yes I’m still here lol. I have four new pieces of art work that I’ve added to the site. I think I’m getting back into the swing of things, slowly but surly. I’ve also added a few new pages to Elucidation. I’ve added a page for people to get hosted here, I will only accept Fanart Sites! just to let you guys know. I have also added site of the month again aka Visions. and this month its Black Lagoon. I know I’m one day early but its work tomorrow and I wont be able to do this until I get home and I’ve been itching to post something all week but I didn’t have enough art work or enough pages.
Reason: I’ve always been a major fan of Wenj at Black Lagoon, she has an uncanny way of painting a picture to emphasis the emotion of any piece of artwork. But I think the main reason I am giving her the award as my very first Site of the Month… read more
