New Product and Game Review Site ‘Armdog Reviews’

It’s been quite a busy last month or so. The family and I finally made our long-delayed moved to Texas. It’s something that’s been in the works since late February, and we made the leap a couple of weeks ago. It was a bit of a trial though; the movers were late, ran out of room on their truck, and

Its main purpose is to share some progression videos; if you’re familiar with my typical posts, I often include still frame .gif images to provide a small window into how my portraits come together.

Access and VBA Cheat Sheet

As I’ve mentioned many times on this site, I am a huge fan of Microsoft’s data-crunching solutions. I’ve gained a reputation for it too; when I am about to offer a solution to something at work, co-workers usually say something like, “let me guess, it’s a pivot table.” Actually, usually it does involve pivot tables…but when I’m not preaching about

Milestone Statistics, Unnecessarily Detailed Data

Welcome to part two of three in a series of posts thanking readers, and taking a step back to review Amdall Gallery’s status as we approach a subscriber milestone. In the first, I dropped a poll asking what sort of giveaway subscribers might be interested in, and shared a few cool artists I’ve come across through working on this website.
