A little about popular species auctionsThere are a few popular species on da like Mantibabs, Weavers and Sushi dogs who are really sought after by people.A little about popular species auctions3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Now most of those species are being sold through the method of auctions and lately I see more and more people complain of how much the artist "overprice" their works.
Now some people dont seem to understand how auctions work because even if the AB is lets say $1000 (exaggerating) it dosent necessarily mean it is the character's price, the AB is high to keep people bidding so the auction wont end 5 minutes after it started. Because if it will end that fast no one will really have a chance unless they are super quick.
And another thing about auctions is that the artist price the AB due to experience, no artist will put an AB they dont think someone might get to. So naturally the more popular the species the more people will be willing to pay.
You have no right going to an artist who make adopts for a living that they are overpricing and unfair
Not a Rant, Motivational (plz read)Things have been hard....Not a Rant, Motivational (plz read)7 months 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.1 month 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,

Naxerik Species InformationThe NaxerikNaxerik Species Information2 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

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.

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?

BECAUSE EVEN IF IT IS THE COMBINATION OF THOSE TWO THINGS, NAMING IT SUCH A BROAD NAME MAKES YOU COME FAR TOO CLOSE TO MAKING IT A CLOSED FEATURE

I could have taken my Illumicutum species and called them Solar-turtles. Now anyone who creates a turtle mixed with a solar fixture will get hated on because they 'copied' what I did, even if it had been done before.
Instead of doing that, I called them Illumicutum, and I took their species further than just a solar panel combined with a turtle. I made it so at night they radiate patterns from their solar shells they collected during the day. I made them nocturnal. I made them sleep outside during the day sunbathing, and made it
