REAL CREATIVISM LOGA lot of people ask me what do i think when im drawing, whats your creative process, and what are the magical fairies you are thinking while you draw, about life, beauty and wisdom of the world. You will be surprised how thats not what i think while i draw and how this process repeats all the time while i draw.REAL CREATIVISM LOG3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The purpose of this journal its to let people know how we are all filled with doubts agony and stupid funny things while we draw. So you wont feel you are doing something wrong.
Will be cool if this became a spam, and people started to share in their journals the same way i did while you are at work.
Okay, lets star, first the setting, if you had seen the tv show 24, picture that way while im drawing, with several cameras on my sides, this will make the reading more funny, if you havent seen the show picture this sound each time you read time passes, while im drawing.
Okay lets start.

Not a Rant, Motivational (plz read)Things have been hard....Not a Rant, Motivational (plz read)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I read it a lot. I read it all over my messages, my messengers, everywhere there are messages of "things have been hard". I did a experiment with myself over the last few months. I didn't talk about the "things" that were hard in my life unless I absolutely had to or to vent a little about short frustrating incidents. I am a blabber mouth for those who don't know me too well. Frank and honest to a fault. If something goes wrong I am typically the first in the room to go"Oh well, shit happens! F this, F that." It has been difficult not to say every day "things have been hard." I did cave and say it once and a while but not as much as it would have pleased myself to say it. Before I start anymore. Read this as positively as possible. I am not making complaints, I have achieved my freedom.
I have been fighting my own "things" since 2007. I suppose really what it is, is that when dealing with difficulty it is just grief. Grief that it just won't stop. I went

Australian political power is now THAT bad.I am pleased to announce G20 has now asserted to the world the actual level of screwed up our government is. (Abbott... Ain't he the shirtfront guy? Also shout out to Russia for clamong battleships on our coast where for climate research.)Australian political power is now THAT bad.9 months ago in Personal More Like This
When our into the context of world politics, Australia is going down hard. Our government is actively lying to us, and G20 confirmed that as our PM told other world leaders the direct opposite of what his party has been telling the Australian public.
I really REALLY don't have high hopes for the future. A lot of people I know are actually considering leaving the country. I'm staying I'm sure. Front lines and all / attracted to drama. (We are not a totalitarian state of course, but so far all the estimates of my politically minded friends that were called 'extreme' have now become reality.)
I think no one really knows what's going to happen at this stage here - we aren't too far gone, but we aren't too far from that point I feel.
Australia stay safe,

As of right now I have 348 UNREAD NOTES that I have to read. It could take several weeks for me to approve your design. Please be patient and do not post them publicly until I have given my approval. I WILL NOTE YOU WITH APPROVAL.
I am also still updating the Donor's Lists, so if your name isn't on there yet be sure to double check you left your dA name in the donation and if not then provide screenshot evidence. List of anonymous emials I still need are at the bottom of the journal.
Normally, my Sushi Dogs are a closed species and you can only get them through auctions or customs. However, if you donate at least $25 to me you can design your own and send it to me and have it approved to make official! WOOOO!
If you donate $50 or more, you get 2 MYO slots, if you donate $75 or more, you get 3, and so on so forth.

Devious Journal EntryMkay this is getting very annoying. xD so I guess ill just put up my two cents when it comes to this issue.Devious Journal Entry2 years ago in Personal More Like This
long text is long
I am not here on deviantART for anyone, I do not draw to please anyone, nor am I here to be used as a feature machine
This rant obviously does not include trades, gifts or commissions xD
The biggest thing that irks me is that people think, just because a lot of people have decided to follow me, I somehow have a obligation to use that to "help" other artists with amazing art get recognized. This is bullshit. Its not my or anyone elses responsibility to make anyone get attention.
IF someone really wants attention, I think its fair that they work for it instead of sitting on their l azy ass waiting for others to do it for them. Remembering back to my own first months here on dA it took me atleast 4 years of being very active. I MEAN uploading stuff almost everyday/commenting back to people, drawing trades and gifts.

Naxerik Species InformationThe NaxerikNaxerik Species Information3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also known as the 'Devourers of Nightmares,' the Naxerik is an ancient being, widely feared due to its demonic appearance and its close connection to humanity's most terrifying nightmares. However, as most do not know, the Naxerik feeds upon these nightmares, thus eliminating them from the Dreamer's subconscious and leaving them with a calm, almost euphoric feeling.
Each Naxerik has the ability to reconstruct any dream they have "Seen" (not necessarily that they have eaten) from the mind of a Dreamer. These constructs are mere illusions, but can fool every sense as long as the Naxerik has the energy to hold it up. This ability is the only Naxerian defense, used to protect themselves from enemies by damaging them mentally with nightmares they have Seen.
Naxerik are commonly very peaceful beings, choosing to feed on a Dreamer's nightmares and move on. Some will single out a person and opt to stay with them, be it openly, or lur
Know your Basics - TexturesThere are a lot of tutorials out there on how to create / photograph texture as well as how to use them on a technical level, but the question of why and when to use textures is rarely touched. This article wants to fill that gap and therefore looks at texures from a slightly different perspective.Know your Basics - Textures2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Textures in Manips as you know them
For a photomanipulator, the first thing that comes to mind when hearing the word "texture" are images that can be used in soft light or overlay mode to texture a manipulation or parts thereof. What most manipulators therefore have in mind, are images like the following:
Beautiful textures, sure, and useful, too, but have you ever thought of doing more with them than the aforementioned overlays? And have you ever considered using other kinds of textures, too?

"My art isn't worth it"
"People won't pay what I want"
"Insert a million excuses here"
This is you! Or rather I should start off by saying this is all of us because I don't believe in playing the victim, we are equals here. We have all said it at some point in regards to sales. I personally have said it plenty of times. You, the reader are probably no exception.
Pricing is difficult, I offer my service and advice to who I can but at the end of the day I can't reach everyone to give you this talk. So I am writing this general journal about why your art ACTUALLY does not sell. I am going to try to be possitive but this journal may be harder to digest then most of the other informational journals simply because of the nature of the reason under pricing occurs. Which is because the seller has no self confidence, no experience, and is making business about their worth as

Too Expensive for You vs Too Expensive, PeriodFriendly reminder not to tell people their adopts are too expensive. Saying it's out of your price range - that's okay. But don't come to us, we who are selling adopts for hundreds of points, and say we need to lower our prices. Because if you think about it in real money, it's pretty darn cheap. Starting bids never seem to exceed $10.Too Expensive for You vs Too Expensive, Period10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Friendly reminder not to be afraid to raise your prices. You put hard work into your adopts, you deserve more than a mere 20 /25 cents.
Friendly reminder that to SOME people, this isn't just a hobby, something they do for fun. It's something they want to pursue a career in. And sometimes adopts are their only source of income. Twenty five cents a piece wouldn't put food on the table even if you slaved away, making a ridiculously impossible amount of adopts.
Friendly reminder that, hey, I have the right to be charging minimum wage. We all do. In fact, charging minimum wage for our art would be the right thing to do. If my starting bids

White Knights and Why They're HarmfulThis is quite a huge/concerning topic, and I know that not all deviants share the same point of view, and I respect that. I'm sure that there are many other journals touching upon this subject, but because I personally have had very bad experiences with it, I want to inform my watchers about it myself! Hope it helps some.White Knights and Why They're Harmful1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
So, for the past year or so I've noticed that some people saying that they specifically dislike a lot of "popular" dA artists due to the overprotective behavior of their watchers.
I personally find it very sad that people are turned off by my artwork simply because they associate my username with "[my] white knights".
There's no way I can possibly control what my fanbase does or says, and this can lead to some very awkward situations and conflicts on my end.
Don't get me wrong...I love each and every one of my watchers, in fact without you guys my artistic life would be incredibly more lackluster. I'm sure ma

My use of the term 'Closed species'BEFORE YOU READ DOWN BELOWMy use of the term 'Closed species'1 year ago in Personal More Like This
this journal isn't a reaction on anything going on with closed species or original species or anything related, this is just how i use the term 'closed species'.
I actually wanted to post this years ago, but i either got distracted with school, real life or i was just lazy to write all of this down. Please don't start a discussion, which isn't neccessary.
And I'm probably the only person using the term 'closed species' like this.
My watchers and everyone new who watches me get to know my creature creation, which i often tend to make a species out of. And then its suddenly a closed species.
Why do I always make closed species?
To answer this question you should probably know a little background story of why i even create species.
Everything started a few years ago, 2 years ago i think, someone asked me if one of my characters has a species information. Because they were interested in the design, back then i never really thought of anythin
