Waterfallcastle by Kamikaye Random Spacescene by Kamikaye Dusk Horizon - Cover by Kamikaye

Hey there people !

I decided to open up two slots for comissions.

Things I usually do involve landscapes, space, castles, fantasy and skies. And it gets colorful !

But I also can work in more muted palettes.

Arkham-like Panorama View by Kamikaye  This was done as a background for an animation.

I also create lineart for backgrounds or mechanical design or incoorporate lined characters in new backgrounds.

Feel free to ask me for a quote. (Please provide as much detail as you can, it'll make things easier !)

Greetings

I discovered masks during my work on biological imaging systems (growth measurement, phenotyping). I ignored them for too long.
But now everything will get better. Or at least more organized.

A friend of mine is conducting ecological research on sea turtles to find out more about their movement patterns throughout the oceans, so that future conservation efforts can be directed at the right regions. FREE USE:: Animated Turtle Icon/Emoticon 

He currently raises funds for a field trip and the neccessary equipment for the research.

So go ahead and like it :floating:

This also marks the end of my period of inactivity, I practiced tons of anatomy and traditional media during the last months, Im also in the last semester of studying biology, specializing myself in imaging-technology and software for physiological studies in plant-science. I already got a Bachelor of Science degree, master degree following ths autumn. Yep, youre watching a real scientist here ;)
Expect some more uploads in the next weeks.

Maybe you wondered why I haven't been very active during the last months.

I worked a lot for university (I got my bachelor degree in biology now) but on the artsy side I put a lot of time into the biggest flash RPG of all time.
When I accepted the first commission from Jazza for this, a few months ago, I never expected it to become what it is now. Since then I produced quite a lot of stuff for this game now I can't relese yet (it would be a spoiler D: ).
However some of it can be seen in the video of the project's kickstarter page  here:

Journal-Update

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 8, 2011, 10:33 AM



Faving journals is fine with me.
But removing the news and putting journals in the bottom bar of the site was no positive change in my eyes.
I mostly see viral citations or DArama going on down there when looking at the latest DDs.

News at least brought some kind of minimal quality standart with them, since authors knew they were meant to be public. Journals are a bit more "private" in my eyes ,they were accessible publicly but not as exposed as news. Some people treat them as platform for news, but at the moment I just see a lot of DArama and other absolutly un-interesting stuff down there. Each with a more eyesoring skin than the one before.

In my eyes it would have been better to integrate the news system more into peoples' message centres like the news you get when you watch HQ. Or watching certain news channels like contest etc.
But thats just my 2 cents.

Well from time to time I update my journal.

I got a place for the master program at my university.
Im working on various commissions right now.
I bought a Canon 1000D, mainly to produce skyshots and my own textures.
And Im working on my bachelor thesis at the moment.

Yea thats it, Im not a big journal writer.  

Feel free to note me if you are interested in a comission or license.

Chain Feature Journal

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 18, 2010, 10:48 AM



I think it might be fun to do that :)

So here are the rules:
:star: Be one of the first 20 people commenting on this journal entry, and I will add you to the Featured List!
:star: For each of the 20 first people answering this journal I will put the deviation(s) I like most from his/her gallery on the list.
:star: If you answer, you'll have to do the same in your journal, putting me on the first place, completing the list with 19 other people. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone.
:star: you must have at least 10 non prose deviations in your gallery to participate!

I wont link examples here.

But that wave of blurred celebrity photos presented as digital paintings by the uploaders makes me sick.

Edit: Damnit no I wont send the link anymore ,open your eyes and look at celebrity pictures you find closely.
I didnt post the link here because I didnt want to harrass a specific deviant and I wont send links anymore.

Twitter

Yes ,damn .. I hit twitter today :/ I found that our university administration seems to provide more information about the IT system status via Twitter than over their own page. So to know about server failures, deadlines , repairs and maintances I had to follow damn stine (the name of the system) in twitter.

I also admit that I was curious about twitter itself and why its such a hype.

About comissions

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 11, 2010, 7:10 AM



:bulletgreen: I usually provide 1-2 sketches before starting the finalized piece. If you want any changes etc. you have to say it BEFORE I do the final work.

:bulletgreen: I need a advance payment of atleast 25 % of the price before starting the final work. :bulletred: I WONT REFUND THIS. :bulletred: This is to ensure that I dont sit on an unpaid comission in the end.

:bulletgreen: You dont get exclusive rights for the picture (exceptions have to be negotiated).

:bulletgreen: I usually put up everything I do in my galleries (and enable prints sometimes), and in my portfolio.
If you dont want me to that with your comission you have to adjust the payment by an appropriate amount ;)

:bulletgreen: Im generally open to everything.
There are so many ideas and projects out there, its no use to work out a dont/do list.

Examples are book covers, illustrations for games, concepts for games, backgrounds, weapons etc. Just a few examples.

Well thats all I had to say now. Maybe more to come.

Greetz,

:iconmarvelous-skyrealms:  The Sky !  :iconmarvelous-skyrealms:

Yes, after :iconmalisaa: told me about the "found a group"-button I couldn't hold back to create a group and spread the love.

Every morning when I stand up my first look goes to the sky, and I am happy when the sun rises between mountains of clouds, when rays of light burst through layers of fog, when the moon illuminates vast plains of soft grey cirrus clouds in a cold winters night.

The sky has countless appearances and influences us and our mood, when everything is grey outside or when sunrays burst through the summer blue daze.

This group has been founded to bring together as many wonderful sky themed pictures as we can find on DA and I bet theres a lot more than there is in our collections and gallery yet !

Feel free to contribute to our faves and gallery :)

This is a call to all sky-lovers out there, help us to find more pieces of heaven all around DA ! :floating:

Yay I founded a group today !
