It only seemed like it was about 6 months ago since I sat down and bought janeilh.com. My Kickstarter came and went, the new year started, and now here we are in 2015 almost exactly one year later.

I had seriously considered letting my site go offline due to to the costs to let it continue (it had hit the 1 year limit and was expiring), but I believe that would be greatly counter-productive to what I’m trying to achieve with it. At least it shows up on the first page when you search my name.

So janeilh.com continues to live. And is also the first time I’ve had my own website with my own domain name for longer than a year. Happy 1-year anniversary! May we look forward to lots of new content and updates for the next year ahead.

Sheena Fujibayashi from Tales of Symphonia reaching out from a Garmin GPS, pointing to a driver to where to go next.

So, this has been something that I worked on in 2010. It was a personal flair for me, something I used solely for myself (and shared with my family), mostly for personal reasons and with some issues I was grasping with after my last anime convention visit in 2009.

I had an incomplete project that up to this day never finished. It was a fan crossover thing that was evolving into an audio drama! Finding amateur voice actors and actresses on Youtube, we did lines and it was up to me to put it together. However one character in particular I could never get the lines for. It’s been dormant since.

Hello all!

So, about actually putting up a helpful article here…high time I did that rather than leave this thing up as a name billboard.

I got messaged by a fellow back in January right after New Year’s about woes he was having about a hardware error of a device I owned. Apparently he stumbled upon a forum post and found my page here (don’t know how that came about). Either way my solution was very…um, how to put this; unorthodox and not straightforward. I learned two things that’s prompting me to make this entry:

1. As “Apollo 13ish” as my method was and its works, not everyone may get what to do from my outline of steps.
2. This problem still occurs even after a whole year that I came across my hotfix.

With that I’ve making a more straightforward set of instructions that any average Joe should be able to follow. And as such, Yorina and Dyma are here to help walk you through this.

Something I had decided to do for the holidays, but took me a bit to finish. But this was a retro-styled art of Aunt Maddie from a non-public project I’m working on; this is one of the minor characters of the cast, a curvy redhead waitress at a pub who’s the sister of one of the main characters. Here she’s strutting her stuff and dancing away; one of my other art friends noted how it had a retro feel to it, which I can kind of see that.

Back when I was around in the RWBY community, this Pyrrha cosplayer who’s name I don’t remember was doing this “name feature” event in a Facebook post. She’d take requests from people in the RWBY group, then pose with their name while doing a “casual Pyrrha” cosplay. The result? Something like this.

I had managed to make it into the final list to get my name featured, so this photo was one the cosplayer released in an album. I don’t remember her name, but if I recall it I’ll update the post accordingly.

This was an old drawn piece that I had done in my sketchbook back at ETSU, but decided to do over and give it a shot in digital a few years later. I had bought a bunch of brush packs in an attempt to paint better, and gave a few of those a shot here. These were all oil-painting type brushes, and I think they gave the effect I was looking for quite amply.

This fantastic piece showcases an alien species I’ve had in my head for use in Dawnstar for awhile now, known as the etka. These turtle-like aliens have a very tortoise-like appearance, and have one extra set of limbs to use as arms. They are very versed in laser and plasma weaponry, and cannot speak actual words that humans can understand; hence the translators grafted onto their heads. They lay eggs and are quite adept to climbing with their four feet.

 

The male is on the left, with the female on the right.

 

I’ll do a more detailed writeup of these guys one day. Only time will tell.

I recently started trying out Hexels after seeing some people use in on deviantART. It’s an extremely interesting software and I definitely look forward to doing more with it. Did this in a short sitting when getting a hang of it; don’t think it came out too bad, but I have a long way to go with this. :S

This was an…interesting idea to say the least. I’m just glad Christina put up with me on this one.

 

Basically I had this idea of an Alice in Wonderland scenario, except it was someone from an older period falling into a modern or sci-fi cyberpunk setting (neo Tokyo, etc). This was one of the first times I used stock photos for the background, and had a ton of fun coloring this together. Basically the girl in the middle is getting a good helping of the modern conveniences, along with meeting some cool peeps.

 

It was supposed to evolve into a story, and I had plans for this character to be actually decent at playing arcade games. I didn’t quite get further into the plot beyond that, though.
