Thanks to the AFA awards I’ve started doing some art work again and even started rebuilding lucid fanart I’ve got some cool looking designs, I’ve just got to piece it together, it may take a while as I’m making it responsive, and combining the two programs I use to run Lucid Fanart into one. So hopefully soon I’ll be able to show you a brand new site. But for now how about some brand new artwork.
Hey Everyone, Happy Halloween, I hope you all had a great night and got lots of sweeties, I just wanted to post a quick update, with a gift for everyone just downloaded it and save it to your site if you want it :), I got some wonderful awards from my affiliates: Carmen, FioNat and Ingrid and you can see the gifts here on my awards page,and to tell you all about the wonderful new affiliates I have:
also a few new pieces of artwork, all three created for a challenge at Buffy Forums.net a challenge called Heatwave, which basically asked for shipping wallpapers, that showed a romantic connection.
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 have also done a few pieces of art work over the month of August W00t I told you I would lol.
Nearly another month since my last update, but this is a special month for me as it is my birthday tomorrow, and I wanted to do something special for elucidation, I see other community sites doing freebies and bundles so I thought I’d make some freebie stuff that people can use, also becuase this month someone opted for freebies on the poll at the bottom of the page.
In this bundle you get my all time favourite gradients, I have three in this bundle that I have used all the time but I’ve never put them in to a gradient set till now.
– Two tone set which has various tones that fade into a similar tone [view gradient]
– There is also a a HDslr set which are bright red and orange gradients which I have been using to help me recreate HDR style photographs [view gradient]
– And my favourite one which I have called heaven and earth because it combines earth tones and sky tones to bring out the colours in photographs which have both sky and other features in it [view gradient]
I have also added some photographs I have taken of torn paper, I always find it hard to find torn paper that is big enough to fit on my wallpapers, the torn paper in this bundle is very large and maybe a little blurry in section but the size of each piece is at least 1920px in width or height depending on whether it is landscape or portrait which should be big enough for almost all wallpapers (15 photos in total) [view photo set]
and finally I have made some textures out of the paper stock photographs (8 Textures in total) [view texture]
you can download the bundle here or you can have a look at my gallery and download each part individually.
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
