Journal Entry: Fri Jul 15, 2011, 9:45 PM


So I am going to be working on an image for a client and she wants me to reproduce a Luis Royo - this one to be ore exact Fallen Angel.

Now I can use pre-made backgrounds, do some photo editing and create it out of stock or ask any of you if you would be interested in donating a rendered background for me. I say donate because this lady is not being charged enough for this piece to warrant me being able to pay anyone.

I am hoping to be able to offer more of these to clients, this one just kind of fell out of the sky on us. If I know I have a couple of you to rely on, then I can charge proper and get more work for all involved. Not just Fantasy stuff either, would like to not only get into COS Play, but be able to offer some of it for kids photos, dancers...whomever.

Feel free to comment here or send me a note...I know I have friends that do this for a living, but you are busy

This is the perfect example for what I have been bitching about - www.deviantart.com/print/19852…?


Not one single image in this users gallery - skylerelizabeth.deviantart.com… - belong to them and they freely admit this on each image.

So now deviantART gets to make money off any print sales, as well as the traffic this sort of crap brings to the website. This person then gets to collect any profits as well, all off the back of someone else.

Porn site images, works of other artists right here on deviantART, random photos from Facebook, over and over and over it's the same thing.


Get your shit together DA! The DMCA does not apply when someone freely admits they did not create the image. User that are constantly removing images instead of providing a model release are admitting guilt by their actions. These people need to be BANNED, yet not one single thing has happened to a single one of these losers.


Welcome to the new Photobucket.



....and for you fuck nutz that think blocking someone means you cannot be reported, your an idiot.

....my deviantART subscription has lapsed and I refuse to renew it, I am not going to continue to support this place until I start to see them enforce their own rules properly. I am sick and tired of the assholes who do nothing but post stolen work, badly hacked up porn images or other crap they try to pass off as their own work. If you upload stolen work you are supposed to be banned, yet this is not happening. These fake users do not contribute to the community, they steal from it, again I am on the verge of wiping out my account, closing it up for good and not coming back.

Get your shit together deviantART, follow the rules you have set for all users. I have seen countless pieces of high quality work be pulled for stupid reasons, all the while watching blatant thieves violate policy after policy and not even get their stolen work removed.

It is a load of bullshit.

Let us try this route, if they ban me for it, you will see just how stupid this place has gotten.


20juju10.deviantart.com/ - Posts stolen porn site images, latest one is of a well known porn star.
sephirot27.deviantart.com/ - Every image in the gallery is from a porn site.
crawzar.deviantart.com/ - Claims to be the artist that created these images - fav.me/d3hd4fo fav.me/d3gblv7 fav.me/d3gepds and clearly did not, in fact the Lambo pic is from an HDR tutorial page of a well known artist. The artist has been informed and I am sure will take action, seems like DA is not.

I could be here all night with this shit...

The next few months will be busy as hell for Insomniac Studios. We have a Steampunk themed gallery show coming up in June and shortly after that a CD release party for a local band called Shadow Thieves - www.facebook.com/pages/Shadow-…

We will be creating imagery for their entire CD, from front to back and everything inside.

...A new year starts soon, I am looking forward to things moving in a much better direction for me than this last year. I have lost a lot over the past 12 months, but have gained so much more for a brighter future. Here is to better days ahead and to the mending of shattered hearts.

Randomness and Stupidity

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 7, 2010, 6:31 AM
I want my heart removed from my soul
Only pain remains inside now
No Love
No Joy
No Pleasure of any kind

Nights are filled with sorrow
Days are filled with regret

Tired

Lost

Trapped in a prison of my own creation

I want my heart removed from my soul
For fear of feeling once again
Love brings heartache
Joy brings sorrow
Pleasure ends with pain






.....not meant to be good, not meant to be anything, just been down for a large number of reasons last few days and this just popped out of my head...

Studio floor is down...

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 4, 2010, 9:04 AM






...now to prime and paint it so we have a brand new shooting surface. Another week or two and we will be up and running!


first day in new studio...

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 1, 2010, 9:26 PM






...and it was dirty, rough and fun...yes I am talking about the studio, been 10 months since the other :P

This space has so much potential and has me very excited. Lots of work to do getting it ready, it will be worth the time, sweat and pain in the end.

My ass is now off to bed to get some rest so I can walk tomorrow.


Numbers Game...

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 13, 2010, 11:58 PM






So today I turn 44, this number has been a very important part of my life for many years. The house I have spent the most time living in is number 44. Over the years this number has always been a part of my life in one way or another. To my ex-wife Kelly and I it HAUNTED us for years, all the way from High School and even made an appearance on my daughters Marriage Licensee. I did have something big planned for this day about six months ago, nobody knew about it, in fact I told the first person yesterday. Well those plans won't be going through now and it seems that is a very good thing.

Honestly I can say in hind sight it IS an extremely good thing.

I hope this is a good year, the last one has had it's ups and downs, but for me it will always be the year my daughter married John and that is a wonderful thing to have happen. Even though it happened before I turned 44, it still happened in the year I turned 44 :)

So thank you all for the Birthday Wishes I have already gotten and an early thank you to those of you that will be wishing me a happy birthday today. All wishes for happiness are always welcome and at times very much needed.

Studio is still planned to be started next month, unless we get fucked on the space for some reason. Once the keys are in hand we will start construction on a few items, do some painting and get things moving within the first two weeks of October. My heart still wants me to get in a car, get on my bike or just put my feet to the pavement and go, camera in tow. I still plan on doing something involving me going to several locals, meeting models or fellow/budding photographers and spend a few days learning or teaching or creating in each place I stop. This will happen after the first of the year, I want to get this studio up and moving first. I have other ideas in the works as well, more on them as things progress.

Again Thank You to all.


Gotta love...

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 7, 2010, 1:02 AM


...it when a group decides you are not good enough to be part of their deviantART club.

Yeah whatever.


Anyway. still looking forward to the beginning of October, we should be moving into our new studio space by then. Have lots of work to do before we start shooting though, figure we will be up and running full time by mid October.

Also have lots of new gallery shows coming up, some for Halloween/Solstice and a couple other holiday themed ones. Want to get new work going for these shows, I hope to get a couple of good location shoots before the studio is ready, get new work up and get behind the camera again.

Photo Road Trip - Planning Stage 1 (STUDIO UPDATE)

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 14, 2010, 5:01 PM


I am working on getting together groups of people that would like to work with me around the country. I am hoping to take a month long road trip, driving to different cities and meeting people to do shoots with or even do a city walk with some of my fellow photographers/artists.

Stage one is about finding the people and locations.

So ANYONE that would like to get together and do some shooting with me, either as a model or photographer, let me know here or in a note so I can get this ball rolling.

Edit:

You will see a bunch of new but old stuff being uploaded. I am working on files, getting things better organized and ready for a new file server.

EDIT: EDIT:

I am going back to Koken Art Factory, will have a brand new studio space that I will be sharing with my friend Carrie. I cannot wait to get started, I have so much in my head right now I think it is going to burst open. Rent is low enough that I can still do my trip as well.

Wedding and House sitting

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 19, 2010, 7:49 AM


House sitting till the 24th if anyone needs me

Cleaned the Bearded Dragons cage today, he sure does not like being in it, think it's time for a bigger enclosure for him, then again this could be his 'overnight' cage.  Makes me want to get a reptile again, may have to do that when I get done with all the house/pet sitting I will be doing between now and close to the middle of August.


Found a Talon online last night that is exactly what I am wanting. Low miles, looks brand new inside, just a dent in the front bumper, which looks like it rolled into a parking lot pole so nothing serious since it is plastic anyway. Right color, it's a TSi and AWD, only thing is the price is high compared to it's value, but with only 90,000 miles on a 1991 car it may be worth the extra money. They finance as well, so there is a good chance I could actually get this one. Just waiting to hear if it is actually still on the lot and then have to drive 400+ miles to drive it and look it over.  If I was able to get this car or one like it, you would see me being a very happy man.




....old...


I saw John and Jessy with new eyes Saturday night, I saw a couple, a true, loving, mature, connected couple.


My daughter looked astoundingly beautiful, the moment I saw her in her dress I could not control my emotions. The whole night was amazing, fun, funny as hell and pure John and Jessy. Their first dance was to Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Queen, they had a whole number choreographed, again it was very funny. I had to follow their dance with the Father Daughter dance, we chose Winter by Tori Amos, I made Jessy talk to me about random things so I did not spend the whole dance balling. She would stop talking and start signing lyrics to me, which had me crying of course. It was a very emotional night for me.

Thankfully my old friend Michelle came to the wedding all the way from North Carolina to be my 'date' so I was not alone at the wedding. She really helped me keep my sanity and I thank her and her husband for helping an old friend keep his broken heart at check.


yes it was and still is very painful for me to have Amber gone, I am trying to move forward, everyday is still a struggle inside my head and in my heart. I missed her being there very much, it was very important to me, but she made her choice and removed herself from my life.


It was a wonderful evening, a truly unique wedding and an event I will replay in my head over and over. Watching my daughter walking toward me, looking even more beautiful than the first day she came into this world, being so proud of her and John and seeing her grow into her own right before my eyes.

A few shots from the wedding...

Gonna take a while for me to get used to her not being Jessica Williams any longer, but she now has a wonderful man that will take care of her as they start life together as husband and wife. Just looking at these has me crying again.
