September Features

Journal Entry: Thu Sep 4, 2008, 12:01 AM
Other Stuff First


Hey guys, a few things before we get to the featured artists.

First, there's a new entertainment networking site for artists [edited:  I don't think they accept photography] called CGHub cghub.com/.  Several others have mentioned it in their journals, but I'll post about it here too.  The skill level there is very high, so it's great to go for inspiration.  Take a look around and sign up if you like.  :)  

Second, on Friday, September 5th, at 8pm ET/PT, all 3 major networks (in the U.S.) are going to be airing a program called Stand Up to Cancer, a fundraising event for cancer research.  I'm sure you've seen ads for it all over the place.  It's for a really great cause.  Please tune into it on either ABC, CBS, or NBC at 8pm ET/PT.  Or visit the site here: su2c.standup2cancer.org/ …;

Okay, on to the fun stuff....


September Features


Yay, monthly feature time!  As usual, I'm listing sci-fi/fantasy artists whose works I've enjoyed.  They all have under 50k pageviews.  The only exception here is Senshistock who has over 50k, but her extensive pose-ref gallery is such a useful resource, it'd be a crime not to list it.  Anyway, please give these artists' galleries a visit.  Thanks!

Links & Usage Info


My artwork is not stock imagery, so please don't treat it as such. ^_^

In a nutshell:
1. Don't alter/edit/mutilate my art.
2. Don't claim it as your own.

The following are fine as long as you don't alter my images. No need to contact me for permission:
  • Downloading my art for your personal viewing pleasure.
  • Using my artwork as your desktop image.
  • Printing out my art for your personal use (like putting it up on the wall of your room.)
  • Displaying my artwork UNALTERED as part of a picture gallery on your site. (It'd be nice if you gave credit.)


I would ask that you please do NOT do the following:
  • Other than re-sizing, please do NOT alter/edit my art. Do not crop it. Do not change the colors. Do not draw on top of it. Do not remove my signature. Do not add text over it.
  • Do NOT use my artwork as part of your website/blog/myspace background or layout design.
  • Do NOT use my artwork for banners, avatars, sigs, and tubes.
  • Do NOT claim my artwork as your own.
  • Do NOT take my art without permission and sell it for profit.

Haha, I suspect it's safe to say I'm not good enough to make it into ANYONE's features list. XD

It's not really a question of "good enough" as far as I'm concerned. I don't even pretend that these choices are objective in any way. It's simply a matter of what I happen to personally gravitate towards. I don't know if you've noticed, but I tend to like darker art. And I love sci-fi/fantasy environments. A lot of landscape stuff here, yeah? ^_^

And I think most other people do the same when they feature artwork. They go more for what they personally like than by some kind of technical criteria.
