still having problems with internet explorer 7, but all other browsers should work, let me know if you find anything wrong. Comments and (constructive) criticisms are encouraged.
Web hosting advice? Anyone?So, I've finally got my website almost ready to go live. The question is, where do I host it? There's so many web hosting sites out there I don't know where to start.
Price is paramount, since my artwork isn't currently making any money and I only have a part time job.
I am based in the Uk, and my domain is jenberry.co.uk. My website is written in PHP5.3 with a MySQL5.1 database and is currently only 160MiB in size although I'll need room to expand. I want it to be easy to synchronise the files on the website with any changes I make offline (using, for example, rsync), and it would be useful if they had the phpmyadmin tool.
I'd be grateful if anyone could share any advice or experience about finding web hosts.
What to do with premium membership?So I've just been given membership by :iconmeihua: for winnig the :iconbirds-club: contest (thanks a lot.)
Not to seem ungrateful, but I don't really know what to do with it. So I've added a sitback slideshow to my page, but other than that...
*plays with journal skins*
Auto resize? WTF?Art isn't just about the picture, the presentation and viewers experience is as much a part of art. Some pictures are best viewed small, like speed paints, and pictures where the whole matters. Some pictures are best viewed large, so that they fill the screen and draw the viewer into it. Some pictures are very long, such as tutorials, and comics, and the length should not be restricted.
!Give back the artist's power over their own art!
Here's an example of the problem:

Edit: hooray, DA redeem themselves. I knew we could count on them.
How should I reorganise my gallery?Currently my gallery is split into fantasy and non fantasy, and I don't think that adequately reflects my range of material, so I need to reorganise it to better sell myself. Is subject matter as important as medium or style? I'm beginning to think not. So I was thinking I should organise it into the following folders:
Pen pictures (the ones that are currently on sale, see previous journal entry)
Digital concept sketches
Traditional concept sketches
Commissions and gift art
Where the last two overlap with the previous.
But then if I'm going to have overlapping categories, why not have ones for animals, and fantasy as well? But I think its best to keep them to a minimum. What do you think?
Pen commission sale: half price for one week onlyOk, so I'd like to get some commissions, and since I'm jobless at the moment I feel my time isn't worth so much, hence I can offer you commissions at almost half the price! How good is that? Sale lasts one week, so the closing date for requests is Wednesday 10th March. (This deadline may be extended or reduced depending on interest.)
The sale is on my pen work of animals which normally costs £25-£35 (+p&p), I will now do them for £15-£20, so this is a great time to get a portrait of your pet or just your favorite animal. The sale also includes my photoshop black & white sketches, normally £40 http://nunt.deviantart.com/art/Demon-queen-155280262 I will now do them for £20 and they aren't restricted to animals.
Examples of pen work:
Monochrome A4, normally £25, now £15.

1 artwork per dayHi all, since I'm jobless and therefore have free time, I've set myself the challenge of doing one piece of artwork per day. I'm currently in my third week and although I've missed some days out, I did manage to do 7 each week. I will be uploading them to my scraps unless there's a particularly good one.
I've mostly been working on drawing faces, but there is other stuff too

can anyone tell me how thumbnails work? Do you have to have a subscription or something?
New photography account: photonuntI thought my photos were cluttering up my DA space a bit, so I decided to make a separate account for them photonunt.deviantart.com . I will soon be deleting all my photos from this account, I apologise to those of you who have favorited them n stuff but it is better this way.
GraduationI thought you might all like to know that I have now graduated from Cambridge University with a BA honors in zoology, grade 2.1. It is everything I was hoping for so I am happy. Going to Cambridge, it's easy to lose perspective, but I realize that I have a very good degree from one of the top universities in the country, if not the world. I have enjoyed my time there a lot, and am very sad to be leaving all those wonderful people I've met and called friend. You can't get rid of me so easily though, I'll be back next month for those of you still there in the holidays, and I'll be visiting next year, especially since my boyfriend will still be there doing his fourth year. As for my plans, I'm doing several voluntary research assistant placements, one in Cambridge in July, one in Spain in September, and one in South Africa in October and November. So I'm rather exited, and rather busy. But despite this, I will probably still have more time than I did at university, so in theory I'll get s
EXTENDED Design Contest! [CLOSED]Hello... Is it a contest you're looking for?
Well, you see, me and Berry have shipped her OC and Sunrise for years, and we never got a legit family for them... So, because it was her

Collective Feature #20Updates:
Firstly, I want to thank the anonymous user who gave me a 3-month Premium Membership. I don't use the features much, but I like the journal themes, so thank you!
Secondly, I wanted to thank everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday! Being at college, nothing excited happened except classes and work, but I did get to help out at a dodgeball tournament our club hosted, so that was kinda fun.
Thirdly, who else enjoyed the 70=80 degree temperatures and gorgeous weather on Friday + Saturday? Cause I know I did! It was short lived (back to rainy, windy, and cool) but I hope you all made the most of it! I drove up to Teatown Reservation to see if there was any growth, but there was very few. They opened up their "Wildflower Island" to the public and I hope to go back in a couple of weeks when things begin to grow more.
I already know it's going to be one of those weeks because this morning I burnt a finger on the

Comissions: Opened o.o!HELLO THERE
YES! I'M MAKING COMMISSIONS. BILLS TO PAY, NEED TO SURVIVE LOL
In all seriousness, I wanna start to make commissions. After talking to Alyssa (walkingmelons on youtube) about prices, I'm leaning towards following her policy. So if you want to commission me here are some details:
A fully colored digital drawing (like this one): $40 (may charge extra if there are more than 2 characters)
A fully colored digital drawing only focusing on the upper body part: $30
Since I'm just starting with the commission thing I wanna take it slowly and patiently, maybe in a future I'll be able to draw only sketched or simple colored drawings which will be cheaper, but for now I'll focus on what I know I can do better. If you are interested, send me a note named "Commission" and then add what you want. I'm thinking I can only take maybe 2 commissions per week to get started, when I get the hang of it I'll probably be able to take more in.
As for the time, it depends. If I'm inspired I might jus
