Stock Rules - UPDATEDHi thereStock Rules - UPDATED2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am a model called *la-esmeralda and because lots of people asked me if I would allow them to edit my photos I created this account. I do not allow anyone to edit the photos you find at my model gallery so you do not even need to ask
Feel free to use what you find at ~La-Esmeralda-Stock but please make sure to read these rules BEFORE you use them.
1. Credit me, link back to the deviation you use - no matter if you upload it on deviantart or your personal homepage or anywhere else.
2. You don't need to ask for permission if you want to use my photos but you have to write a comment under the photo you use with a link to your deviation. Even if you submit it outside dA!
I offer stocks for free so you could at least tell me what you do with my stuff
3. Don't use my stock photos to create new stock or claim my photos as your own! Don't upload the unedited stocks to other sites!
4. You may submit prints on dA or redbubble etc - as long as you credit me.
The Long Lesson ~ Part 1I have always been a lover of bondage and early on in my marriage my wife indulged me much to the pleasure of us both, but mostly me. My binding material of choice at the time was white cotton clothesline as I found it not only made the most secure knots but cinched up better than nylon rope.The Long Lesson ~ Part 15 years ago in Personal More Like This
This particular evening my wife had me strip down to my underwear and lay face down on the bed. I crossed my wrists behind my back and she proceeded to bind my wrists with a 6 foot length of cotton rope. Wife asked me to wriggle my wrists as she cinched the rope up between my wrists and pulled out all the slack before knotting it off with several tight knots. As always she was careful to make sure none of the knots were in reach.
Next up were my ankles and my dear wife did as expert a job binding my ankles together as she did my wrists. I was a little taken back when a rather long length of rope was applied to my arms just above the elbows and she started to pull them together. She had never gone

MotivationHaven't been able to accomplish much using my usual source of motivation (future fame and fabulous riches), so I'm gonna change things up a bit. I'm going to draw one study a day and post it up here of whatever I feel like drawing, and see how long I can keep it up. Hopefully, it'll get me to draw faster, better, and explode my repertoire to something future employers would actually be interested in seeing.Motivation1 year ago in Personal More Like This

I realized today that I do, in fact, have a type. I previously thought that I didn't, but it turns out I do.
And that type is you.
I saw a picture earlier (while scrolling down my Tumblr dash) and immediately thought wow, that's really hot. Then I realized that she reminded me of you. She had the hair, the tattoos I know you want, the style, and was in a setting that I can imagine you being in. The picture just generally reminded me of you.
Now it gets mushy. Sorry.
I am honestly more attracted to you than I am to anyone else. More attracted than I think I have been to anyone ever. You are gorgeous and perfect. I think about you constantly. I don't think you know just how much I feel for you. How much I want you here with me and how much I want to be with you all the time. I could spend hours just looking at you. I could spend hours exploring every inch of your body. Your perfect curves

Great Women of History 1 - HypatiaI was reading through my brother's high school history textbook today, when a thought struck me: I've thumbed through 30 pages, and I haven't seen a SINGLE woman's name. Over 50 percent of the population is female...so why the paucity of historical figures?Great Women of History 1 - Hypatia2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And thus I decided to start this mini-journal series, because there were plenty of amazing, influential women in the past. We just don't talk about them much.
Let's begin our story with one of the great minds of antiquity:
Hypatia, The Last Librarian of Alexandria
Imagine a library - the greatest anywhere on the whole surface of the Earth, charged with collecting all of mankind's knowledge. Imagine halls filled floor-to-ceiling with countless texts, perfumed with the stories and discoveries of people from the farthest corners of the globe. Such a library was founded some 300 years before the birth of Christ; it was part of the Museum of Alexandria, a vast research institute in modern day Egypt, which also inclu
Selling OutWoops, tumblr got my brain cogs going again!Selling Out2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Verb: Going against what you believe in or against what you identify as in order to make a quick buck.
Growing successful and enjoying great popularity and/or financial success doing what you love does not count as "selling out". It annoys me when people are so quick to equate success as "selling out". Especially in the arts.
I posted this on tumblr and got a few comments from art students in 'commercial art' majors telling how they've been accused of 'selling out' by other students in fine art majors.
And once again, as an illustrator enrolled in a fine arts (painting) program, my empathy burns with a passion for artists in such a position.
Personally, I've had to lay the verbal beat down a couple of times in regards to the topic of 'selling out'.
The most common thing I heard was that "all illustration looks the same, probably just because that's what the public likes." To which the response

Together with some others we could name a lot more.
How about you? anything like this ever happened to you?
Things you shouldn't say to an artist.
1 Can you do the artwork for this job for free? It will be a good promotional piece for you. Get you some word to mouth advertising.
2 Mom Look! That painting is just like that picture you downloaded from the internet and got framed for the living room.
3 Wow. You charge THAT much? You make it look so easy.
4 If you don't make it so detailed... Just scribble something down... Can I get it cheaper?
5 If you use that piece you already got and change it a little, can I get it cheaper? You already have done most of it.
6 I can use a Photoshop filter to do that exact same thing.
7 You are lucky... you don't have to work, you just have to sit and paint all day.

Women as Sex ObjectsWarning: Imma 'bout to rant.Women as Sex Objects6 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
First off I'd like to point out that I'm not a raving feminist. I acknowledge that women are not equal in western society (despite corporate efforts that seem to be more about statements and false enthusiasm on the subject rather than actually taking women seriously) and I don't think we will be equal for a long time, if ever. Just how it is. Unfortunate (from the perspective of a woman), but just how it is.
ANYWAY. Here's my rant. I'm really tired of a female character being undermined by her being half nude. Really, really tired of it. And I'm not talking about artistic nudity, I'm talking about ass-cheek flashing skirts, bikini tops and little else (I'm looking at you, Japan).
I love a strong female lead, but they're so rare. Writers find it so hard to create a complex female character; they're either so brave and outspoken that they become butch and unattractive by design, or they're a sex object. A hopeless damsel in distress or someone who can hold th

Live the dream, don't talk about it!Doug TenNapel, independent comics creator, is an inspiration to me in many ways. He has a fun, accessible art style that is dramatic and fresh. His story telling is always askew in the best of ways. I don't think I've read one of his graphic novels without having some smiles and a surprise or two along the way. On top of that, he is outspoken about almost everything in his life. (I think of him as the Rush Limbaugh of comics- oh man, that sounds really bad, but early Rush, not present day Rush, if that helps.) I agree with most things he states on Facebook. BUT- the thing I am most inspired about him is his drive (in the old days we would call that "work ethic"). The guy does NOT give up. Because of that, he single-handedly will put out a new graphic novel a year. While creating a webcomic. While pitching new TV show development ideas in Hollywood. While running a half marathon. While working freelance jobs.Live the dream, don't talk about it!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
