USEFUL STUFFHere's some nice useful things to check out (if you havent already) that i like to look at to improve or just watch for inspirationUSEFUL STUFF5 months ago in Personal More Like This
FYI i learn more from watching things so most of these are gonna be video tutorials, artists talking while painting and timelapse paintings, since i prefer analyzing peoples workflow and try it out than straight tutorials that tell you what to do (not there's anything wrong with it though )
LEVEL UP: https://www.youtube.com/user/levelupsessions
omg.... the amount of stuff you can learn from these amazing artists is crazy! i suggest watching from session 1 till the latest. you cant miss a thing these guys say, plus these guys are pretty fun most of the time. its a nice light, but informative bunch of videos
Marc Brunet is a great teacher! i really enjoy how he explains things and just his process in general. really good to listen to and pretty entertaining to watch
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 auctions4 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)8 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.2 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,

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

Free Features!Hey everyone!Free Features!9 months ago in Personal More Like This
I am doing a free feature on my profile page! Yep! Absolutely free . No need to do anything for me, watch me, or even look through my gallery.
Feature box status: OPEN!
Oh and, I'd appreciated it if you'd faved this journal so that more people can see it
Because I am busy and still have school, I may close the feature box every once in awhile if I get completely flooded with notes (very unlikely to happen). IF THE FEATURE BOX IS CLOSED, DON'T SEND ME A NOTE FOR A FEATURE! YOU WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY REJECTED AND BANNED FROM THE FEATURE BOX FOR 3 MONTHS, NO QUESTIONS ASKED.
I will only feature an unnoticed artist. This does not mean that you have under whatever amount of watchers, but that you deserve more way more watchers for the art you have. (don't be shy because of this, I'm not that strict about it, I just don't want to feature artists with a whole bunch of watchers already)
WHEN NAMING YOUR ORIGINAL (closed) SPECIESPLEASE PLEASE PLEASEWHEN NAMING YOUR ORIGINAL (closed) SPECIES6 months ago in Personal More Like This
REFRAIN FROM CALLING IT 'object-animal'.
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
(What's a closed FEATURE? read this for better clarification ;v; http://fav.me/d7iorsm )
But what else am I supposed to name it?
GIVE IT IT'S OWN NAME. MAKE IT IT'S OWN THING.
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

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.

Of course, I'm not the most successful person on this website either, but I've gotten a few questions on some things so I decided to just write them all here for easy access (and maybe help some other people in the process).Helpful Stuff7 months ago in Personal More Like This

How To Get Noticed On dA
Getting feedback on your art is one of the most important things to have if you want to improve. Of course, it is not always that easy to get watchers/favourites/comments. However, do not get discouraged! No one starts off their first week with 1000 watchers. It takes time and patience. Here are the basics;
Have a good username. This isn't the most important thing ever, but truth is if your username is "xXxKawaiiNekoShadowWolfxXx" most likely people will

ANOTHER TIME YOU CAN SAY THANK YOU IS WHEN SOMEONE COMPLIMENTS YOUR ART
IT CAN BE HARD WHEN YOU GET A BAJILLION COMMENTS OR PROCASTINATE BUT TRY BECAUSE IT MAKES PEOPLE FEEL HAPPY AND LIKE YOU
NEXT UP! SAYING PLEASE

Here's the official database link!
Edit: Guess you'd have to search it yourself, but here is a SS!
(Note: that is my business address (not personal) which is public domain information, to those wondering why it isn't blurred out!)
So, this means a lot of great things!
Mostly that I can proceed in going forward with my merchandise line.
I have not been very public about my plans for them because I didn't want to get ahead of myself, but eventually I'd like to get Sooshes turned into all kinds of merch, like:
-Stantionary, stickers, buttons, prints, etc
-A yearly calendar
-A small clothing line, with my own art and other artists' works
-A potential comic series??
However, these things require a lot of time, and I'm really consumed with art school right now, so until I graduate, but I'd like to start planning as soon as possible.
Commission Prices (2K15)REALLY IMPORTANT NOTE.Commission Prices (2K15)3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Pixel works will 300/10 times be done faster than any other commission because I can work on them just about anywhere.
- PLEASE, pay after I confirm your order!
This is to avoid people not having points when I get around to finishing their commission.
- I draw a lot of things except for - Most pokemon, and birds.
I do draw Canine, felines, dragons, and anything in between. Even anthros.
- If I got a marking wrong, PLEASE, don't be afraid to correct me!
I am a very forgetful and considerate person
- I f you see a piece of art in my gallery you'd like to would like to know what kind of it is, don't hesitate to ask!
SIDE NOTE - Pixel works may actually be done faster than other works because I can work at them while at school.
