I have been a core member on DA for so long that I really did not know the difference between being a core account and being a free account.

Please donate to the pool to keep the stock flowing. Your support is appreciated.

Everyone wants Spielberg results and no one will pay the price to get them.

"You can change that in post right?". That is a red flag in my world each and every time I hear it. To get any sort of traction in my neck of the woods you have to work for less than minimum wage and bleed yourself financially and mentally because all the year of experience you have are considered inconsequential to those that have never worked your field.

Because the barrier to entry is so low in the digital art realm everyone and their dog think they can just magically create standard level post production. Again, I laugh because the "standards" for local production have fallen so low a kid of fifteen years old using his cell phone posting a vertical video is considered a "standard".

With the proliferation of streaming glitch feeds and compressed Youtube videos, is it any wonder the masses seem to care less and less about the visual quality except when they go shopping for that new 4K curve stream TV. "Boy look at how crisp and clear those artifact glitches are!"

Just my rant for the day. Enjoy your free stock.

Do you know how much a new(used) camera costs?

Journal Entry: Wed May 9, 2018, 6:27 PM
A LOT!
So if you all want more free unlimited stock then please donate to the cause! When my core account runs out I will not be adding anymore to it. It seems a waste to be putting efforts and money into something that gets very little return. Originally I started this account up to expose my own work to DA but it was the stock that people seem to care about most. I felt like it was my civic duty to help out my fellow artists get their ideas out there and get whatever $ they could from their work. Now I am telling you artist to artist, times are VERY tough around here and anything would be a great help to keep my DA stock alive.

So please, donate, commission, core gift, whatever you think you can do. Before it is too late.

An unfortunate series of events

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 13, 2018, 5:15 AM
So after 9 wonderful years of hard work and service my Nikon D700 mirror gave up the ghost. My next replacement is only $3000+ dollar. Needless to say I do not have that kind of capital at my disposal. So the stock work will be very hampered by this event. I will still be posting old shoots but until I can somehow gather the funds to replace my camera nothing new will be coming. This is a sad day.

A moment of silence for our fallen comrade.

Where has the time gone? Core membership almost up

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 3, 2018, 7:24 PM
Well, here we sit again my art friends. My account is quickly coming to a end for the core membership. Just three short months away! The donation pool is only half way to my goal. So once more I ask you if you want to keep seeing the stock flow and the quality, please consider donating to the points pool. I don't ask for much, just not to have to pay this site to provide free stock. Thank you in advance!

DD's just aren't the same anymore...

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 25, 2018, 3:48 PM
So one of my stock images got anoher DD last month. I just noticed now due to my buried inbox of comments.

I have to say that DD's have little to no impact on this site any longer. When they appeared at the bottom of every account the effect was tremendous. You knew you had got a DD just from foot traffic alone. A visit count of 200 would spike to 5000 for a couple days. It really was a great incentive to produce good work. Now that it is buried on it's own page it gets about 1500 in total. Unfortunate. I wish DA would stop making these terrible changes to their interface as it really does impact the users experience in a very noticable way. I know, "you can never go home". But wish we could.

In case you were wondering, here is the image that got the DD. Love it if you would all click on it.

Nothing makes me happier than when someone tags me in their art from the stock I provide! It means even more if you like my work enough to follow me on Instagram and Picarto (where I do my live streams)
