What's New?

After The Heatwave --September 8th, 2022--

Hey fuzzies, how was your summer? I'm showing up to let you know the heatwave did not kill me: quite the contrary, since it's been a very writing-centered season. Let's have the past updates in review!

I've been attending the Etnacomics convention this past June; I'm already used to travelling by plane, but it was the first time I've brought a suitcase full of comics along with me! Oddly, this time our gadgets and commissions were much more popular, so even if we had a positive turnout we came back with an equally heavy suitcase...
Speaking of chronicles and writings, there's also another journal log added today discussing about personal diaries, both online and offline.
The Affiliates section has been extended a lot, as I've been meeting and exchanging links with much more people since I joined Neocities. Along with the sections linking irl friends and colleagues (which has been updated to add new convention buddy Ares!), there's now dedicated paragraphs for webrings, listings, Neocities affiliates, and other personal domain buddies! Hope to expand the list more and more.
The Lore page has also been expanded with some backstory or additional context for the several Cuna De Rios places that appear in my illustrations. I like that section a lot, but I'm aware it might undergo some slight tweaking and updating as more and more pictures get added to my gallery. As for now, it also serves as an inspiration board for places I haven't drawn yet, which is nice.

Almost all Sitely pages have been improved with better worded paragraphs, tidied up links, and now generally looking slicker and more efficient. I even had some fun and added paragraphs for adopted webplushies and listings under the About The Author section, never knew they could be so addicting!

On Twitter, I organized a watercolour + gadget giveaway that has lasted pretty much throughout the whole months of July and August; it was a good occasion to practice with the medium but also to clear out stock from old gadgets- quite infact, the Shop section has been updated accordingly! I have a lot of new designs for keychains, pins and stickers coming up and I'm eager to post them on page.

New pics mega-update list!
  • From July: a new illustration featuring many of my charas and nostalgic rollerblades, and a set of PokemonXNeopets crossover in the fanart section;
  • From August: a watercolour picture with Jay and some gemgore;
  • From September: an illustration starring Amphetamine in his lounge, uploaded on his birthday!
  • Several recieved fanarts have been added in the Guest Artists page: from this summer, a bust of Candy drawn by Solaris (friend of the channel!); a headshot of Gloria by LalaMizu, and a hand-drawn magnet of Valery drawn by JulieKarbon while we were together at the EtnaComics. More recently, I've been adding several old fanarts of various charas and a whole bunch of Chrys pics.
That's all fuzzies, back to the drawing board!

Presenting... 2.0! --May 28th, 2022--

VN celebrated its first birthday this past April 26th! Seems like yesterday that I scribbled the very first concept of the mainpage on loose paper; instead, we've already completed a full loop around the sun. Kudos!
In reality, April 26th marks the day the domain name was bought: site went online a few months later in late July after eh... quite a bit of tinkering with the CSS, HTML and everything alongside. But what do you expect? Rome wasn't built in a day!
And if you're wondering, yeah, I didn't even manage to sync up VN's birthday with my own. Guess 2021 me couldn't wait three more days. 😒

Me and my brother have been rather busy throughout the whole month of May for an appropriate first year celebration and finally today we finished implementing VN's definitive layout version, taking the occasion to improve things on the backend too. I can't express how proud and happy I am to see everything look exactly like originally envisioned in my concept art! It even features faster load times and cleaner code. What more could a webmaster dream of? Now this site really feels like the virtual home I've always wanted.
Since there's quite a lot of novelties, I'm gonna spend a few lines to show you around. Here's what's changed in VN's new iteration!
  • Responsiveness! 1.0 had, sadly, many compatibility issues with different browsers and not mobile friendly at all. 2.0 fixes this by being fully compatible with all browsers and 100% responsive. Mobile users, surf freely! (Even with Netscape Navigator. :V)
  • Menus! In addition to the classic left menu, 2.0 doubles the interactivity with the brand new Travel bar at the top linking to my socials and a right menu hosting gadgets and fun links. We now have a clock, a hit counter (not sure if it really works, but looks neat enough) and adopted web plushies for an extra dose of Y2K nostalgia.
  • Pagination! The News and Journal sections will display arrows to cycle through older and newer posts, ten at a time. ...They're there, I swear. 😅 I just haven't reached ten posts in any of those sections.
  • Improved galleries! Slight graphical overhaul for the galleries featuring a slicker general look, new and improved viewing icons at the top, and a better description display. The video viewer has also been fixed, and now properly displays videos in midview.
  • Site history! Now you can visit the About The Page section to also view previous layouts and won awards! Let's party like it's 1997.
  • Here to stay! As you can understand, this wasn't a simple cosmetic change but a true re-build of VN from the ground up, and now that I've reached "layout peace" and everything works exactly as it should, I do plan to use version 2.0 for a long long while. However, 2.0 is also written to easily swap colours and graphics around to show new skins for holidays or special celebrations (once again, exactly like sites used to do back in the day)! So, get ready to see VN in a properly Halloween-themed "vest" starring EmptyHead or a winter theme maybe even with falling snow effects.
And that's it! We hope to not have left bugs around, but if you see some, feel free to contact me via the usual channels.

I'm glad to have completed the overhaul just in time, since in less than a week me and Lock will be travelling again for yet another convention. This time, we'll catch a plane to Sicily to attend the Etnacomics, which will last 5 days! It's gonna be almost like a vacation, especially because we're gonna share the booth with our friend (and top affy!) JulieKarbon and finally do live shenanigans together. Can't wait!

Welcome Home! --July 28th, 2021--

Hi! Welcome to Valyce Negative.it, my main directory for personal art, projects, blogging and commission info. This is the site's first online day, so a few sections might still appear under construction. However, please feel free to take a look around, and remember to check frequently for future updates!

To help you navigate, here's a condensed site map!
The menu on the left features a link to this Main Page where all new updates will be announced; if you're new to my art, you can know me better by taking a look at About Author and About Site, or F.A.Q.! If you're a returning visitor, all my personal artworks are now in the Cuna De Rios section, organized in the classic folders Illustrations, Traditionals, Animations, Comics and all the usual. There's also a new folder just for Doodles! I also do Fanarts stored in the appropriate section, and offer some free fanmade Telegram Sticker Sets of certain anime/movie/videogame characters to download and install!

If you're here for business, the Shop section has all you need to know, from TOS to Pricelist and the current Queue List which will be updated daily. More art for sale such as Originals or Merchandise can be found at the appropriate pages. Wanna reach out to me? Check the Contacts and Valyce Negative Webs pages!

And the rest? Well, it's up to you do discover! Have fun!
