Scraps Clearing

Mon Jan 7, 2013, 4:12 AM








I cleared out some old and horrible scraps which I considered not desireable in my gallery anymore. Those were quite hidden as well. To everyone who faved them: thank you very much! I totally love and appreciate your support on everything I do!

It was just time to clean up some old tiny scribbles or weird photos to make some more space for newer pictures (not that space would matter here) ~ but it was more a personal thing. :D

However, I saved all of them in a folder, and still have the original files.
They will be uploaded on my sketchblog soon, where I plan to dump my old stuff.

Work in progress screenshots, photos and updates on my art and plans can be seen on my Facebook page! The link is here ~> www.facebook.com/AlectorFencer

More is yet to come! :D

Plans on new paintings:

:bulletgreen: Myre Character design sheet

:bulletgreen: Princess Mononoke

:bulletgreen: Dragons of Incense: Dammar

Thank you so much for watching and supporting me! Much love!

~ Alector

I hope...

You all had a wonderful and warm and happy Christmas and a great start into the new year 2013! Thank you so much for the support, comments and favourites <3

Sunkissed by AlectorFencer
~"Sunkissed" Bookmark ~ one of the many for you to choose!~


Everything is set up for the Winter/Christmas bookmark sale I wanted to make this year and it comes with a great offer!

As winter time and Christmas time is approaching, there is a chance to make colourful gifts to brighten up the snowy and grey winterly days. :]

Therefore I make bookmarks now, for all the others who love reading, just like myself.

Information about the bookmarks

The bookmarks have been printed on a high quality paper plus a cellophane finish for sturdiness and extra vibrancy. This guarantees more debth and vibrancy in colours. They are scratch-proof as well as tear-proof too! The backside of this bookmark is made of handmade plant fibre paper from Nepal from a fairtrade source.

Due to this, each bookmark is unique. If you wish, I can hand-sign them for you as well to make it look more like a little unique piece of artwork, hidden in the pages of your book, or simply as a small collection. :]

Size/material

4.3 x1.8 inch (11x4,5 cm)
300 g/mē print on card, cellophaned
175 - 250 g/mē handmade/hand-dyed paper for the backside.

And as a special offer, you will get one bookmark free for each four you purchased. Each of your choice.

:thumb338805852:


Thank you so much! <3







I totally do, and I already started at my gallery folder buttons! There are so many ideas yet so little time to find out how to implement them. :0

Usually I'm quite a loner when it comes to learning something new but my time became more sparse over the years, I would take ages to revamp my page here. I wonder, if anyone of you can help me come up with suggestions how to put an idea into CSS skins for my DA front page and gallery folders. :>

I know a little about CSS and could learn about it quite well but I don't seem to dip my head into it at the moment, and the more I look at my page the more I have the wish to give it more "punch", to make it prettier. :D

Thank you all so much for the feedback on my first dragon illustration for "Dragons of Incense". If all goes well,I shall have the book ready by late spring next year and it will come with lush colourful prints, explainations, scribbles and thoughts. All packed with dragon goodness. :D


:bulletorange: Also, keep in mind that there is still a chance to get yourself or someone else a Christmas present by purchasing the limited Print and CD by Fox Amoore and myself!
The print itself is double sided sturdy card with a matte finish for extra vibrance. The CD includes five beautifully composed tracks by Fox Amoore.

Still 10% off and not many left!

If you don't know where to go, find the link here: Story Time by AlectorFencer and :thumb331571334: for extra information.

Thank you for your support <3


Cake!

Wed Oct 10, 2012, 2:05 AM







Is not a lie. I have it. *noms*

Back from everything, and back to work on commissions. Thank you all for the patience with me <3
Will update my journal again soon. This is just a placeholder for now.

I have all sketch homework from EF ready, scanned and will send them to you this evening.
I finished all the sketches I had to finish at EF but couldn't find the commissioners afterward.
Everyone, who won one of the door sign auctions will as well get contacted by me shortly.

Expect me to become more active in the art community now. Hopefully I can feature many awesome artists again and make more question/redline corners for my support to you. Perhaps I will be streaming traditional painting soon as well. :)
Many more projects are in the making too. :)

I will keep you updated. <3

You can follow my Facebook page to see work in progress shots and some images I probably won't upload here or in any other gallery: ~> www.facebook.com/AlectorFencer

So far so good,
see you around

Absence

Thu Jun 28, 2012, 7:53 AM







Actually I haven't been away so much really, just turned very inactive lately because of all the conventions that I attended from the beginning of May till now.

Since earlier this year I've been preparing for three conventions at once while working on commissions and private projects. I'm sorry for my absence and also for the big list of notes that I haven't yet managed to reply to. My life is very busy at the moment and I tavel around a lot.

The days seem to pass so quickly as well! As soon as I get up and work, time is running me away and I'm desperately trying to get all my other things done. Notes and comments therefore come very short. Thank you for your patience with me, and thank you even more for the ongoing support on my artwork. You have no idea how much I appreciate it.

I still love this page, I love this community, and I will try my best to become more active here, for my friends and for artists. :)

~ Your Alector

GOH at Zodiacon and more cons in 2012

Thu Apr 5, 2012, 10:37 AM







Thanks to the awesome staff members and features I have been selected as Guest of Honour at Zodiacon - The Sky Is Falling and look forward to go there!

There is still loads of space left and registrations are still open too! The location is surrounded by the lovely nature near the Seč dam, all part of the protected landscape area Železné hory/ Iron Mountains, so loads to see and explore, if you plan to stay a little longer. I will even take my mum along for some couple of calming days, get to know more people and relax. :>
This con is stuffed with lovely and friendly people, is loated in one of the most beautiful landscapes whilst staying very affordable, too!

You can meet me there as well as at: Mephit Mini Con, Confuzzled, BerliCon, ScotiaCon and Eurofurence!

So plenty of chances to stumble across my path.
I will also have some nice stuff to be taken along with me, but I will put a light on it later. :)

:bulletorange:>>>IMPORTANT:<<<:bulletorange:

Whilst being so scatterbrained I totally missed out something. You might have noticed that I took down the Artbook of the official Red Lantern Backgrounds for now because I didn't come up with a proper preorder offer. In a couple of days I will be rolling open the books again, whilst coming up with some nice offers for you. The ones who have already ordered "Red Lantern - The Backgrounds" will of course take part of the offer, too!!!

Commission slots - "Monochrome Beauty"

Tue Jan 17, 2012, 10:03 AM







I want to get into the flow of traditional painting and swing the brush over paper to create painterly effects over sketches and have fun experimenting with your look.

Beautiful Monochromes is a little deviation from digital painting and to create a row of greyscale drawings, slightly washed pencil stokes and subtle highlights to bring your character alive on paper yet trying to create something dreamy.

The drawings will be created on sturdy smooth watercolor paper whih you could as well hold in your hands or put against your wall.

I am open for 10 slots. One monochrome painting is offered for 30 Euro and can optionally be sent to you.  :)



Please drop me a note if you are interested. :]

Thank you <3

I wish you a wonderful Merry Christmas, a lot of love, warmth, cookies and happiness. :)



Enjoy your Holidays. <3

Also, thanks a lot for everyone who bought prints. I sent them off weeks ago but some of them seem to be on their way still, which is probably due to the crazy Christmas business the post has to deal with. At the post office they sent me around because of the mass of parcels, letters and packets I had. The queue there wasn't much clearer as everyone had at least a huge packet with them.

Nevertheless most of the prints arrived safe and sound at their owner's. Please let me know whenever you receive yours. <3

PLUS I now have a Tumbrlrlrlrll account! ---->> alectors-organic-matter.tumblr…

Have fun!

My absence.. explained briefly

Wed Oct 19, 2011, 12:05 PM







...because I can't type much since my hand is wrapped up in a wrist support band since it started hurting so badly that I couldn't clutch my pen anymore.

But that is not the reason, it's just a casual information.
I'm working hard on the backgrounds for the comic Red Lantern at the moment. The deadline is near and there are a bunch of huge background paintings to be done still.

I've been boogiing non stop to get all backgrounds done that are still needed for the completion of the first Red Lantern issue.

Something that is aside costructions and indoor shots, I'm working on forets shots right now. ;)
Keep your eyes open for possible submissions. Thanks a lot for your patience; notes will be replied asap.

Red Lantern, the comic can be read here: www.rukiscroax.com/redlantern/
