Update Archive

2015

  • 5/20/15
    • Finally updated all of the galleries! They are now up-to-date.
    • Changed website background to a recolored tile image.
    • Next time, I shall focus on updating [Hortensia Moon] with older artwork.
    • I might consider writing a blog entry on my introductory experience on a unfamiliar medium.
  • 5/4/15
    • I forgot to post a formal update notice a few days ago, but there were few things I updated. Unfortunately, I have not added new artwork yet. I will do so soon!
    • Removed several links from [About].
    • Added link to [Hortensia Moon], my art archive website, to [About] and [Gallery].
    • Finally reorganized [Gallery] and restored the default buttons. I got rid of the accordion format because it is not terribly appealing, and [Gallery] no longer has more than one gallery per category.
    • Updated [Offline] with updated information. So far, 3/4 events are through [Pastel Crown]!
    • Removed some links from [Links]. Dead ones, and loss of interest for some links.
    • On the backend, I removed a slew of older blog icons. They are primarily icons based on older artwork, and a ton of Umineko ones. I actually made a insane amount of Umineko icons, but I used a few types, and sparingly at that.
    • For a few days, I tested out a simple recolored tile background. I reverted back to the forest one because the updated tile background wasn’t particularly interesting or appealing.
  • 4/15/15
    • Finally removed a number of older artworks from this site.
    • Removed several links from [Links].
    • I have established a art archive for a number of my older artworks called [Hortensia Moon]. I will properly link it in the near future.
  • 3/4/15
    • Rewrote [Gallery] descriptions. They were terribly written so I was compelled to simplify it.
      • Next time, I’ll try to get the galleries up-to-date. However, this will likely be the start of my organization attempts, which includes the omission of older artworks. Many could still be viewed at my deviantART account, and I still intend to launch a standalone website for my older artworks eventually.
  • 1/30/15
    • Updated [Gallery] page’s layout.
      • Trying out buttons for [original] galleries for now since I didn’t like how length it looked with the over-sized buttons.
    • Updated [Offline] with updated information. I’m going to Ninja-con for sure~! <3
  • 1/24/15
    • Discovered a way to bring back sidebars!
    • I also fixed my blog’s single post page style sidebar as well.
      • Next goal is to add a border to separate the sidebar from the content.
      • Otherwise.. I’m pleased with the outcome!
    • Updated ALA 2015 Artist Alley Report with photos.
  • 1/21/15
    • Fixed right margin layout width.
    • Removed [circle & links] tab in home page because it was redundant.
    • Reorganized the gallery structure again.
    • Removed separate fanart and original pages. The accordion page format sure is handy~
  • 1/20/15
    • Added ALA 2015 Artist Alley Report.
    • I also changed the layout after several years~
    • I’m still trying to get the layout to cooperate, though. Should it remain stubborn.. I might revert back to my previous and heavily-customized layout.
    • I should add that over time, I will adapt the content to fit with this new layout until I feel the desire to revert my website back to its original layout.

2014

  • 11/14/14 – Updated [About] page.
    • I added some statements and moved the image to the right. I should consider drawing a new illustration eventually.
    • Removed the additional links in this page. They were there to fill this page up… but it’s a rather poor filler.
    • On a side note, I tried trialing new WP themes in attempt to renew this website’s appearance, but I found this heavily customized layout the best for my needs. I think I should just update or refresh the graphics to renew this website’s appearance instead.
  • 10/16/14 – Updated fan art gallery organization!
    • I ended up merging the smaller galleries into a single page and implemented anchors to the sections in question. I felt that it’s easier to manage the gallery in this manner.
    • I don’t think I’ll be able to do the same with my original work due to how massive some galleries ended up.
    • Fixed a few tags so a few fan art artwork should appear in the appropriate section(s) now. Notably KH:LoH and Time_Less works now show up in Original > Everything.
    • I also removed a few interest links since I check those very, very sparingly nowadays.
    • Lately, I’m casually thinking of moving a sizable amount of my older chronological artwork into a subsidiary website so that I can have better control over it. This is still in the planning stage, however. It all boils down to how I will structure it, hosting, and degree of maintenance involved.
    • The current system isn’t terrible, but there are some restrictions, and I cannot backup the data (sans illustrations) because there are no external database backups I can retrieve said data from.
  • 10/14/14 – Updated art galleries!
    • Commissions > 2014 > +2
