BrokenSo I dunno about anyone else, but DeviantArt is not working for me. The majority of images and all image previews display only an empty space with a broken image icon in the corner, regardless of browser. As such, I'm probably not going to be around much for a while.
In the meantime, my art tumblr will continue to be posting art once a week. You can find it at artbyifer.tumblr.com
If anyone has any ideas on how to go about trouble-shooting my picture problem, I'd appreciate it if you let me know; I'll still be checking in on my notes from time to time.
Bye for now.
Devious Journal EntryBack from Feral!, where I had an excellent time. Did some commissions, and in the next little while I'll be cleaning up the ones I took pictures of to post them on here.
I am very much enjoying the weekly lifedrawing workshops I've been attending, and I hope you guys arn't feeling too swamped by all the nudes. Rest assured I have not switched my favored subject matter, and hope to have more fantasy content up soon.
Made up a commission price-list before heading out into the wilderness, so if anyone wants to hit me up for that feel free!
I hear that the Furnal Equinox coming up has a retro arcade/fighting game theme, so I'll have to try combining my strengths into making some pixel badges. Will be back with examples after I experiment a bit on that.
I also wanted to mention that if anyone is wanting prints of anything, send me a note and I'll enable prints. (fanart excepted, though if a bunch of people are interested I'll look into finding a sit
August has come to a middle.Getting ready for Feral! later this week. Made Frilled Dragon prints. Wanted to do fuzzball stickers, but they would not have been done in time. I've finishes 12 rubber and steel bracelets for the con, and I'm hoping the sturdier, more masculine look will mean they'll sell better than the fancier/more delicate jewellery I had tried to sell in prior years.
I'm very much enjoying the Saturday life drawing sessions that my family's been going to, even if we are sporadic in attendance. It's a good way to work on my art, particularly as I have been rather lax in practicing as of late.
I'm going to move some of my old art into the scraps folder, as it no longer represents the stage my art is at. I figure that way it'll be out of the way, but unlike stored deviations will still be available to look at by people who like it or are wondering what my artistic history has been like.
Edit: WOW, have I improved a lot!
Furnal EquinoxI'm going to Furnal Equinox in March! I'll try to grab an artist's alley table to sell commissions and stuff, and I'm planning on printing out some business cards to give out.
If anyone wants badges, consider commissioning me now and picking them up at the con! (I'm still working on refining prices, so the ones I've got on previous journals and such may not be final)
Also, I am looking for a hotel roommate! Note me if you're interrested!
Back from Feral!Had an awesome time at camp despite the heat, allergies, climbing a 45+° slope between the main lodge and my cabin, and the horrible horrible profusion of flies. I spent most of my time drawing commissions, which offset the cost of workshops, an Okami print, raffle tickets, and food on the way home. I'll upload the scans and photos soon.
I'm thinking of opening a paypal account and offering commissions outside of cons. Not quite sure of the pricing yet, but it'll definately be a range of prices depending on how much time it'll take. At Feral! I was charging $20 for a full colour bust portrait, which isn't really enough since it ends up taking 5-6 hours of work to do each one. $4 an hour, -materials, just ain't worth my time.
So I'm thinking:
Fuzzballs: $5 1/4 page
$10 full page
Busts (portrait*): $15 sketch
ARGHJust watched Wolverine: Origins. Am now sad. It's a good movie as long as you know nothing about any of the characters. Anything more than a passing knowledge and you're headbashing the keyboard. It's like they decided to make a game of ruining as many characters and plots as possible in a single character's backstory.
Now granted, there are countless alternate versions of events in the marvelverse. And they could have done much worse (see: marvel mangaverse). But still. Deadpool's changes alone would yield an essay, and I'm not going to put you through that rant. Hope his movie will be better; the directors are supposed to be fans, at least. And let's face it: you could get away with a LOT with a Deadpool movie. Lampshades everywhere.
Anywho, I'm tired. Ifer out.
Back!Feral! was awesome. Didn't participate in as many activities as last year, but was still worth it. Spent most of my time drawing; I find I'm most productive when at cons, weird, huh? Upside of this is since I was doing commissions for $$ this year, I was able to make back some of what I spent going to the con in the first place. Fraction of it, but whatever. Plus, I got in practice and have art to show for myself! Got one up already, will have more soon. Hopefully the individuals will get some nice scans for me, but if not I've still got photos.
Currently working on cleaning up the latest in the cute MH monster series. Almost done.
Also working on art for an adventure that will hopefully be published as soon as I'm done. Taking me forever, but yay first publication!
In other news, I finally updated my avatar. Only changed it a bit, but it was about time the hair was blue. It's been what? five, six years now?
BleachShort entry to avoid spoilers.
WHY does Ichigo have emo hair? WHY!?
In other news, I'm heading to Feral! soon; wish me luck in the great outdoors! O.O
Also, my birthday's on the in three days~ Woo!~
What's in the News?Is a collection of deviations really news? Since there are only 6 headlines in the Community News section at the bottom of most pages, features can often dominate the newsbox; trampling more news-worthy articles like interviews, copyright issues, job opportunities, site changes, debates and contests. These are things that are happening in the community, and may affect you either directly or indirectly. With most of the space taken up by features, one can easily miss a news article of vital importance to them.
Now, I'm not reccomending abolishing art features altogether. The fact that they can get to the top of the newsbox in the first place attests to their popularity. Rather, I'd like to suggest having a separate box for them exclusively. It could be put beneath either the existing news box, or under the Deviousness section. Either way, some people can read the news without being distracted by features, and others can look at features without all that news in the way.

My thoughts on DeviantArt Eclipse beta testI've organized my thoughts a bit more after my initial shock response, so I'd like to write them down. I've beta tested DA eclipse that's planned on being rolled out soon and here are my thoughts.
In general, I'm ok with DeviantArt getting a new look. I understand that sometimes it might not be good to be stuck in the same design while everyone else around you moves forward. The thing that I disliked the most about this new design is that it borrows way too many design elements from biggest websites on the internet, like youtube , twitter , facebook , google , etc. It's ok to use some design elements that have been proven to work well, but I feel like this is going too far. If DA decides to adopt this new look, it will be the least recognizable, least individual, least deviant it has ever been in its history, objec
