More wordcount spreadsheets for 2014

A little late to the party, but I made some more word count trackers, this time with Supernatural themes. There’s one each featuring Cas, Dean, and Sam, and also one featuring all three taking turns every month. So if you’re a SPN fan the boys will keep you company throughout…

Spreadsheets for 2014

There was supposed to be a whole thing where I write about Eirtakon and all the wonderful people who came by and recognised me and my art and actually bought quite a lot of it, but… here’s the thing. I came home from Eirtakon, and immediately got sick. And then…

NaNo, bandwidth, and assorted weirdness

My webhosting provider sent me an email telling me I’m running out of bandwidth. I looked into it and wow, my spreadsheets have been seeing a lot of downloads. You people are crazy. And I’m crazy for uploading the damn things to my website instead of using a free filesharing…

NaNoWriMo 2013 word tracker spreadsheets

It’s that time of year again, where we all gear up for National Novel Writing Month. And like every year, I’m making spreadsheets instead of actually working on silly things like, oh, a plot maybe. Who needs a plot, anyway. Have some work tracking spreadsheets instead! >> Updated: please click…

Misha Collins portrait – process outline

It seems that people are actually interested in process outlines and work-in-progress shots and stuff like that, which surprises me even though I’m interested in other people’s process and WIPs. But my own? I know my own process. I’m the one doing it. It’s not interesting to me. Sometimes, when…

Starfield tutorial

I’ve been meaning to post more tutorials on here, so here’s one. This is a pretty straightforward, simple method to generate a starfield in Photoshop. I haven’t tried it in other programs, so I don’t know if it’ll work, but you can always experiment. You don’t need any particular artistic…

Celebration Europe!

I spent last weekend in Germany, at Star Wars Celebration Europe. My first-ever Star Wars convention, and it was a blast. I got to hang out with some severely awesome folks and saw a ton of amazing costumes, and of course there were panels with some of the actors: Anthony…

ArcadeCon and other things

Once again, I’m overdue writing this, but that’s just life, and me, because I take a while to process things. Especially if they involve lots of people, which this did. Two weekends ago I took myself and my work to ArcadeCon‘s Artists Alley, not knowing what to expect but hoping…

Starfield & Nebula brushes

I do a lot of space art, and recently figured out that it’s a lot easier to do that with custom brushes. I made a few brushes to create a starfield effect, as well as one for painting nebulas. You can also use these to paint clouds, fog, fire and explosions…

Book review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Yes, I’ve decided to start doing book reviews, because what the world really needs is another opinion on books, specifically my opinion on books. Clearly. I’ll start with “Cinder” by Marissa Meyer, because it’s the most recent book I read. Here’s the summary: Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets…

Digital Colouring Tutorial

One day, I’m going to get into a proper routine, and update my site regularly. One day. I don’t know when, but it’s going to be amazing. I’ve been making things. None of them were blog posts, but some of them were pretty good anyway. One of them was a…
