Soooo, this is one of the items I got for Christmas:
I really needed a chair level with my work table in my studio! It swivels too! I should be able to do a lot more pieces in there. Lately, I have been totally hooked on doing computer graphics. I need to get back to something more organic (for lack of a better word).
This is a painting I started YEARS ago…never finished it…hmmm perhaps I will go the 7-11 and get a can of Minute Maid Lemonade so I can finish this one. It is watercolor on Bristol board.
In case you haven’t gone, go look at my flash page with all the Twelve Days of Christmas display..you have to click on the tree ornaments to see the illustrations.
My website is finally complete. Please have a look: DancingChimeras.com I had some problems with the loader ..mainly I didn’t know how to make one, but I soon found a great resource that helped me out with that. The only thing is that I have not had a chance to see how the site looks on a Mac. So if you have a Mac and visit my site..tell me how it looks or send a screen shot.
My web icon hasn’t changed though…and that puzzles me. I will give it few days to see if it changes (I figure the old icon must be stored someplace and it needs time to update).
I solved my one problem with Flash so I have 85% of the new site finished.
It was something really simple but I needed to look at one of my old projects and compare the code to figure out what the hell I was doing wrong.My next big hurdle is dealing with movie files.
To embed or not to embed. The issue is I would rather not “make” a controller for the movie. But looking at one of my guides it would seem that I would have to make a controller regardless. I don’t know yet because I closed the program to give my computer break.
In the end, I am very happy I was able to make some progress on this. It is looking nice. I need to clean up my rollovers for the icons.
I thought I could leave this project alone tonight, but I need to test something before I call it a night.
