New Stock InspirationI've been lingering around deviantArt when I felt inspired to upload a photo on night-fate. But most of my days I have spent posting photo blogs or working on resources.New Stock Inspiration2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ever wake up with a sudden thought that changes your perspective on things? Yeah, so....immediately after I woke up this morning, the first thing that popped into my head revolved around these lines: "Since I am only posting stock packs on my nightfateactions.com site, which not many people seem to notice; what if I continue to post individual photos on deviantart to at least rebuild my once-awesome stock reputation so that I can at least be considerate of those who appreciated all I ever did, instead of focusing on the morons that did me no good?"
That would mean that there were already so many awesome stock users that cared about using the imagery with respect, that it outweighed the inconsiderate users and abu

Don't ART for free ...Note written under the influence of several recent situations ...Don't ART for free ...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, I understand that not everyone can/like/love to draw - but that does not mean that some people have to treat 'drawing people' as children. A few days ago my friend asked me if I draw him a portrait of him and his girlfriend. I agreed without hesitation ... But when I told how much the portrait will be cost - he was angry with me, that I will not do it for free! I understand that it is my friend - but I spend my free time, energy, etc. on it. So it's no longer just fun for me. It becomes a way of life ...
I wish that those of us - involved in the drawing - were taken more seriously. Because it is a job like any other. Not sitting behind a desk in an office does not mean that I do not work as hard ...
The situation is very well illustrated here:

I had received a job offer at Microsoft. I guess this could have been one of my first 'big time' jobs, so I was a little ecstatic. It felt like a slow build to get to this point, after numerous indie games and under the table freelance jobs, but finally it had come.
I was working with my now best friend and business partner, Stephan, a suave German who I had met only a year or so prior. He had brought me into the fray, working with several other individuals who will, well, simply be known as individuals for privacy sake.
But yes, finally, I could put a professional company I
10 ARTIST TIPS from yours truly.10 DETAILED ARTIST TIPS - From my own view (related to deviantART):10 ARTIST TIPS from yours truly.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am too lazy to write a "long" version so I'll throw out tips from time to time. I have been asked for advice many times so here's some advice now! Follow my facebook to get more info!
1. Once you have a "very good" customer base, try putting into your commission agreement that you do not accept rushed ordered and can take as long as you'd like.
This is risky because you're not making promises to your commissioners. In order to "keep" my customer base, while still not putting pressure on myself, I "reward" patient commissioners by simply doing detailed coloring. The secret to having this agreement be successful is making your final drawing "worth the wait", however long that may be for you is your decision.
2. Time management & pricing. This is just something I do, I spent around 5-10 minutes roughing sketching a comm. I do not spend
Gothic PeopleGoths are usually pictured as evil Satan's worshippers, who work at graveyards and are just rude and mean and all... b*tches. ... Right... Actually, the people who have been mean to me have been usually normal people... or more like "normal" people. The goths I've talked to have always been nice. Well... maybe one "goth" was kind of dumb towards me once... but you know how you can trust these people on the net... could have been a poser... or just a wannabe... or a goth. There are different kinds of Goths. It doesn't mean they can't be mean. Anyone is mean when they feel threatened/gets pissed off and so on.Gothic People3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't really know am I goth or not... sometimes I'm pretty sure of that, and most of the time... I don't really care. I know what I like. If people have a name for it, so be it. I'm just tired of the typicalness. I like change. Break habits and rules. Try different things. ... not in bad way, though. And then... I dress all black. I like black. It's a pretty eh... "color".

Here's to the crazy ones.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They're not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can't do is ignore them.

Art in Contemplation of Its Own BecomingDuchamp finds a discarded urinal. He alters it (by signing a name to it not even his own, but obviously “the artist’s”) and names it “The Fountain”. The most mundane, even off-putting, of objects is transformed by Duchamp into art. He submits it for exhibition and it is rejected. You might say the judges “pissed on” his idea. But the idea was born and persisted. Duchamp insisted the object was art because he as an artist presented it as such. “Conceptual Art” was born.Art in Contemplation of Its Own Becoming4 years ago in Personal More Like This

“My paintings could probably be categorized into two groups,
especially if you are one of those people who like labeling things into neat packages.
I have a strong emotional side, sensitive and poetic, with all the adorning side-effects,
which enables me to lift paintings up to what has been referred to as visual poetry or poetic symbolism.
The other me is cool and collected, witty and sharp,
with a passion for philosophy, psychology and games…
That is rather the surrealistic and wacky me, and so are some of my paintings.”

At the beginning of August I found myself at a hospital, diagnosed with gallstones. The only effective way of getting rid of them is to remove the whole gallbladder altogether. Unfortunately it quickly got much worse. I got a severe case of cholecystitis and developed a hydrocele. It was suspected that the inflammation started to spread to my peritoneum and liver. Even more unfortunately it didn't stop there. During all the medical examination I went through during the next few weeks it was discovered that everything was in fact caused by gallbladder cancer, which before was wrongly identified as inflamed tissue.
You can probably imagine how devastated I was after getting the news - after weeks of pain I got to know that I had cancer with extremely poor prognosis and had absolutely no money for a surgery.
Desperate I turned to my
