Comprehensive Stryx Genos Price GuideI've had friends ask me from time to time about this, so here's a quick and simple guide to help explain how I price my stryx genos based on past sales records, for anyone who may wish to buy or offer a stryx geno to me.Comprehensive Stryx Genos Price Guide3 days ago in Personal More Like This
It is by no means the official way to price genos, but if you are new and clueless on how much to offer for/sell a geno, you're more than welcomed to use this guide as reference
For ease of comprehension, all prices are listed in USD.
I do however accept dA points at the rate of 100 to $1.
I did not list any prices in AP because I do not generally accept payments in AP.
Disclaimer: The prices listed below applies to bred genos only! It may fluctuate depending on supply vs demand in the stryx market, but generally I do not go too far below these prices.
Prices of base colours (without mar
About originality in artMany deviants around here seem to think that if they have seen a type of work before then that means it's not original. So by that reasoning, if someone comes up with the weirdest thing in the world, than that makes him original and therefore better than the one that drew something that has been done before.About originality in art1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I'd like you to consider this for a while. Humanity has been around for thousands of years, almost anything an artist might think of drawing, has been drawn before. If an artist draws a portrait of a girl, that is so "unoriginal" you can literally find hundreds of thousands of such drawings.
Then should an artist stay away from drawing portraits?
Is an artist's work less valuable?
Consider this for a moment. There was an artist (if i can even call him that), that pooped in a box, and made an art show about it. He was definitely original and his work is very valued. There was another artist who put a shark in a tank and sold it for $12.000.000 dollars, (yes it's

Two hours and thirty minutes left and the contest if over, start wrapping the artwork up and get it in before midnight pacific coast time tonight. JULY 18TH. It might take me a week to pick the winners out there has been some amazing entries.
I warn you do not send plagiarism stuff and try to pass it off as your own or I will try to get you banned. If you make money off of your stolen artwork I will contact the artist and they will deal with you. Specially if it's a gaming company and the previous owner is someone I know. I advised all of you not to use game art. When I said I game and I'm an avid fantasy collector I was not lieing. Also I haven't played every game out their like Skyrim (I know shun the none believer) so again do not enter art that looks like you copied it from in-game content are you will be disqualified. If I don't know it some fan might and point it out.
Artist name is ShikharSrivastava is a thief if you haven't heard.&

I met my dear friend amrodel and we visited ZOO Jihlava together - it was full of baby cats!
Caracals, manuls and snow leopards had babies, so it was amazing to watch them - just the weather was bad, cloudy and even rainy, so the light made the photography difficult thanks for lovely meeting, Amrodel!
Here you can see some photos - I included also lovely Tamina the seal for Lunchi, of course

So I have something fun to give away today.
First of all, the significance of today is that it is the launch day for the lush, thrilling book Origin, by debut author Jessica Khoury. Origin is the first of five Fall 2012 books from Penguin Young Readers dubbed the 2012 Breathless Reads, and I have to say, it's fantastic. You will really want to read this. It's set in the Amazon rainforests (how beautiful and original is that setting? Amazing!), and tells the story of a young girl named Pia who is genetically engineered to be immortal. But

Nov.21/11It actually sickens me what people will say about you , like you aren't even real . I understand constructive criticism and even flat out rude comments don't bother me , but they do bother other people . On my latest photo , I was called anorexic , ugly , disturbing etc. As well comments like "why don't men look like men anymore?" What has society become that we find it socially acceptable to EVER talk to someone like that . If I didn't have thick skin that would bother me a lot more . But for the people it does bother , you could be taking away an innocent life by talking to someone like that . It just makes me so upset how we treat each other and that it's just going downhill . I have a project for you . Go to school/work tomorrow and go up to one person who could use a compliment and say something nice to them . Little things can make a big difference .Nov.21/114 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway I'm gonna take my anorexic body , caterpillar eyebrows , fake eyes , duck lips & mountain nose and embrace them .

Great job, guys! The procedure was successful!
She's a high-energy, hard-working, spirited fun-ball
of laughter, talent, and voracious supernovas of friendship.
She's also an animator.
The pay's kinda okay I guess, better than your average burger flipper,
but not close to other equally hard working people in other jobs.
A couple weeks back, her hard drive gave up the ghost.
It stopped working like a unionized chemistry teacher
getting notice of a district labor dispute.
And leaving everyone else pretty darned peeved.
Trapped within her hard drive are her personal files,
past projects, portfolio samples...
...And the first five years of photos of her daughter, Lily.
Just like her mom, Lily is also a high-energy fun-ball of
Pride Flags Colors explained!I'll try to list as many pride colors as I can think of.Pride Flags Colors explained!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Gay Pride (Rainbow - Gay, Gay Men, Lesbians, and sometimes the entire Queer community. The rainbow represents acceptance of all sexual orientations.)
Labrys Lesbian Pride (Purple with Labrys in inverted black triangle [different versions exist] - Lesbians, women, and feminism, and gynephilic people who identify as female. Labrys became a symbol of lesbians and feminists due to the popularity of a female empowerment publication called Labrys Magazine. In addition, the black triangle is a symbol of lesbians due to the fact that many lesbians were forced to wear it in concentration camps during the Holocaust under the idea that they were "asocial" and did not conform to heteronormativity).
Bisexual Pride (Pink, Purple, and Blue - Bisexuals and sometimes all multisexual/non-monosexual/multiple gender attracted people.)
Selling Stryx (F Harpia, Sunrise/Barred Tyto)Okay, so I tried my hardest to get into DracoStryx but I lost my interest in the group relatively fast because I was expecting a group as fast paced as tokotas (don't get me wrong! I loved this group, but if there isn't constant activities/things to do and motivated people, I lose interest fast). So I am selling all my current stryx. Only one was ever truly uploaded and has art. The others are clean slates.Selling Stryx (F Harpia, Sunrise/Barred Tyto)1 week ago in Personal More Like This

The Quartet for the Dusk of ManThis is for those who wish to see the full version of the "poem" that I quoted a verse of in the last journal entry.The Quartet for the Dusk of Man5 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Four Gods wait on the windowsill
Where once eight Gods did war and will
And if the Gods themselves may die
What does that say for you and I?
Now, three Gods wait on the windowsill
Where one God's blood was lately spilled
While black tongues lap at the spreading pool
And build the strength they need to rule
When two Gods wait on the windowsill
The wick of the world is burning, still
But when one God in triumph shouts
The candle of the world goes out
And when that candle, bare and white
Sheds at last its dancing light
Then we will rouse, with raiséd rod
To pierce the very house of God"
--The Quartet for the Dusk of Man

Louie Schwartzberg has made it his life’s mission to use his cinematic artistry to raise the alarm for public awareness of the dire situation we are facing in the possible collapse of our taken-for-granted natural resources. The “colony collapse disorder” currently decimating our honeybees was the prompt for Louie’s new movie, Wings of Life, which at it's essence, is a love story that feeds the earth.

Onto the ramblings of this entry, spurred by a conversation I had with a friend the other day:
Yes. That word and its limpet-clinging conventions .they roll in on the Boy Love bandwagon.
Let me check the nametag slapped onto Yaoi by Wikipedia (ah, vicious, vicious portal of procrastination), just to be clear (and to cover my ass no contextual pun intended): Originally referring to a specific type of dōjinshi (self-published works) parody of mainstream anime and manga works, yaoi came to be used as a generic term for female-oriented manga, anime, dating sims, novels and dōjinshi featurin
