Where have I been all this time?!

It’s been a long time since I posted in here, hasn’t it? I’ve been going through some personal stuff that took priority over the site. It didn’t help that my laptop finally died…Well…kinda died. The charge port came loose in it, and it couldn’t charge anymore. At the cost to fix it, I might as well put the money to a new computer.

And I do have a new computer! Okay, it’s really a used computer, but it’s new to me, so it counts! And it works! So I have it set up so I can actually work on the site more. And I’m certainly working on this site! I cleaned up the sidebar a lot. There was a bunch of junk clogging it up that I thought was a great idea at the time, but now that I’m older and wiser, I realized that it’s just useless stuff that needed to go. I’m liking the look a lot better! I also cleared out all the spam comments that were all over the place. Next up is cleaning up and editing all the pages of the site. I’ll probably start working on that when it’s not almost 5 in the morning.

And as a final update, I have a new Twitter account for the site! I decided that Ralynkei needed its own Twitter, mostly for quick updates that don’t warrant a full blog update. So if you have a Twitter account, go ahead and follow me there!

More content is on the way!

It’s Ralynkei’s anniversary…

…And I suddenly realized that I really need to do something with this place, don’t I? πŸ˜›

If you’re trying to access my Zazzle store…

Zazzle is currently updating the whole site layout. They’re also updating how the individual shops display, so they’ll look nice and shiny and able to display on any computer or device. I’m sure it’ll be well worth it in the log run.

Unfortunately, this has resulted in my store being momentarily unavailable. I don’t know how long yet. Hopefully, it’ll be back up soon. I’m poking around the site right now, trying to find out what’s going on.

In the meantime, though, I officially started a Ralynkei shop on Cafepress. (and one for Studio of the Silver Fox in general.) I was weary about it at first, but I’m starting to get used to it. I’m even getting a bit of a liking for it.

I don’t have much going on there just yet…Except a thong with the Ralynkei logo on it. I did it because that was a thing that I could do. So there. πŸ˜› I’ll have more stuff for sale as time goes on, as well as a better-looking layout, with icons and color schemes. I gotta pace myself with these things before I overwhelm myself again with too much work to get done at once.

Speaking of sites updating, WordPress seems to have gotten one as well. It’s all in my dashboard, though, so I don’t think anybody reading this can actually see it. :\

I’m still getting the hang of it, since things aren’t where they used to be, but that shouldn’t take long. What I’m more interested in are the new features they seem to have added. I have a checkbox to mark my posts as “super awesome”. And now I got a case of “what does this button do?!”, so of course I had to click it for this one!

So, yeah. sites are being redone, one store’s temporarily down, you can buy a weird thong on another one, and I’m generally attempting to be more productive about this site than I have been. I think that covers it for now.

Store experimenting

So I’m starting to dabble a bit With CafePress. My loyalties are still with Zazzle (*hugs Zazzle*), but I thought it wouldn’t hurt to poke around at the options they hav-I can design underwear here?! O.o

I’m not sure how I’ll work the store system if I decide to do designs on both sites. I might just have a dropdown list on the site with “Shop at Zazzle” and “Shop at CafePress”, because trying to get the individual links up for two separate sites will be way too much of a hassle for me and for anyone trying to buy something.

Completely unrelated note: It’s been a while since I made a Ralynkei-based video on Youtube.Β  Kinda thinking of doing a new one, especially since the last one is a full 4 years old. Thing’s almost as old as my cat. If anyone want to throw in suggestions on what I should put in such a video, feel free to toss ’em in here! πŸ˜€

So who knows? There might be a lot more excitement coming in here soon!

It’s snowing (on this site)!

I found an option in WordPress to make it show snow on the site. Just for the lulz, I turned it on.Β  Should be showing snow until January 4th.

So, who enjoyed their Christmas? If you don’t celebrate Christmas, how did you enjoy the day that almost every store in the universe was closed? Discuss now!

Dear holy kittens! What happened to the site?!

Yeah, my regular readers might have noticed that the site suddenly changed. Change is not a bad thing, of course. πŸ˜‰ Among those changes:

  • I decided it was time to update the general look of the site, and I found a new theme/layout that I think works better, mostly because it has more space. The old layout was good, but it left comics looking cramped and therefore hard to read. D:
  • Facebook page! I officially started a Facebook page! Check out the sidebar on your right to read the posts, and don’t forget to click the “Like” button!
  • I’ve momentarily lost the header logo, but it should be back soon! It needed to be fixed, anyway! πŸ˜›
  • Sadly, Meebo is no more. D: So we lost the one-on-one chat, as well as the chat room I had. Nothing can really be done about the single chat, but I’m searching around for a new chat room for all of us to share!

And things to look forward to in the future:

  • Comics! And then more comics! I have a lot of them in the works as I type this!
  • I’m playing with some ideas for keeping the store up-to-date a lot better. Consequently, I’ve been neglecting the store page. Feel free to go to the Zazzle store page directly, though. πŸ˜‰
  • Prolly a whole lot more as I figure out the new WordPress widgets I have to play with…

Keep checking in from time to time, and see what else I decide to change! And now for a poll!


Edit: I found out after posting this that I apparently reached a WordPress goal of 45 posts. This bring up two questions:

  1. I had goals to accomplish here?
  2. I’ve been that inactive?!

Learn something new every day, I tells ya. πŸ˜›

Dragons Dancing!

Yesterday, I stumbled on ankewehnerΒ from Livejournal, who was taking art requests. I requested a picture of Raenur and Ferim, gave some refs, and left the rest up to the artist. I must say, I’m very pleased with what I got:

This captures the two of them perfectly, especially since I’m always imagining the two of them dancing in some way. =3 And seeing someone else’s rendition of characters that I’ve created inspired me to pick up the pencils and get back to comic-drawing all over again! =D

Now, if I can get my scanner to work with my new computer, I can actually upload those comics…

I never mentioned this?

Apparently, I never updated about the fact that I sprained my wrist several weeks back. (Story here if you want the deets.) But, I did, and now it’s healed to the point that I can get back to drawing. I’m still having some issues with the tendon in my thumb, but I can at least hold the effin’ pencil now.

Of course, that doesn’t help the fact that I’m now three weeks out of practice, and therefore everything I draw right now is coming up like crap. So I’m working on a bunch of practice drawings before going back to comic art, not only because it helps me re-train myself to draw, but it also acts like a physical therapy for the afore-mentioned tendon issue. =P But worry not, my dear readers, for there are arts being made, and comics being plotted out! I just gotta get them to actually look right…

Until then, enjoy my…ranting? =\

I’ve been a BAD artist…

…All not updating this site and whatnot. πŸ˜›

I guess I should start this off by saying that despite comments left in my previous blog and on my forum (and on my Wikifur article, for that matter), I am not dead. Nor do I plan to be any time in the near future. I’m not going into details, but the situation was taken care of, and hopefully, we won’t have any more scares like that in the future.

But now let’s talk about site updating. As I type this, I’m planning and working on new comics. Okay, it’s more like *types a little* *stops to work on comic* *types a little more* *stops to work on comic more*, but you get the idea. πŸ˜€ I think my motivation to do this went way up today when I logged into my Zazzle store and discovered that someone bought the Arjur’s Epic Quote Mug that I made way back after the first comic and almost forgot about. Funny how the first product I make becomes the first product I sell. ^_^ After discovering this, I promptly did the following:

1) Fell over
2) Died
3) Came back to life
4) Was happy that I have a full $1.82 credited to my Zazzle account =3

I must celebrate this success somehow. I’ll find a way.

Speaking of updates and my store, I really have to give the store link on this site a major overhaul. It needs to be more organized, and I have to update the new stuff I’ve since added, like the variety of items featuring a cute picture of Raenur and Ferim. (Yes, each word is a different link.) I’ll be working on that, so don’t be surprised if the appearance of the store page looks dramatically different all of a sudden. πŸ˜‰

And with that, I’m off to draw some more!
