here is a few of my favorites from around DA
Adjusting my DA participationI have moved most of my images for sale to www.SaatchiArt.com/RBCD While I enjoy DA very much and have participated, I have not had a return on investment. I will stay on for the other artists I have come to appreciate here, the ability to print magnets, etc. I would also like to keep engaged with this site in case they ever come up with a formula to reimburse artists. One idea that I find compelling is to charge for likes. For a while I have been paying artist with DA bucks each time I liked one of their images. I think this should be part of the process when a person clicks on likes an image then a screen pops up asking what the collector wishes to donate to the artist, or accesses a minimum charge. People who collect images can then contribute to the artist's effort. Collectors could even earn a new type of badge... I recommend that DA do something like this and make the DA Bucks conve
December Month of DollsHello, well this doll thing is running full tilt.

Stepping Forward!I have the studio, I have the time, you will get the art!
I noticed other people are already working...
Sooo, whats happening with ChauDavisAlright, ya know I have stopped selling paint and am onto the art kick full time. Part of this is fixing up the house/studio and making it livable in winter and summer so that Maria, I and Lora can all live and work year round. Almost there! In a little bit Maria and I will be taking our big vacation and seeing wonderful things up North. I had hoped to slip one more show in but ran into a glitch so had to back out (it was graceful with no damage done on either side). I have developed deep affection for Thumbprint and hope to work with them when I get back. I would like to have regular drawing/photo sessions at my house. Working with having an artist (who likes their privacy) become a sort of guest artist at the house. Should have more work in August and if you want to visit there is always Taco and Tequila Tuesdays... Here are some of my current Fave's by other artists on DA...
A few pictures from Jazz Jam at Panama 66This is happening every Wed night at Panama 66 in Balboa Park, San Diego. These artists are all painting the musicians jamming on stage (occasionally pulling other musicians out of the crowd). Here is the Facebook link to the event Carlos Castellanos Wed Night Jam Session at Panama 66. Brian Meyer is promoting the visual art side...

UU Art Guild Poems and suchWell finally finished these up... Will be talking about them the second Tuesday of February at First Unitarian, UU Art Guild!
Dragon Ball Z Tribute Show (Cosplay Encouraged)Thumbprint Gallery is hosting a Dragonball Z art event at Bar Basic in San Diego 1/26/2016, I created 3 little acrylics taken from the opening sequence of season 1. Drop by, here are some of the details:
Here are few others I found on DA:
That was interesting...I was able to show it all in front of the T bar in Hillcrest, still processing the experience. Stayed to 10:30, True stayed longer, he is a champion. I think that bargain bins are called for. I could do an extension of the trash series and have the 99 cent bin. A more compelling interactive piece is needed. Protection from the evening damp would be good. Art cards need to be framed or available for swapping. Couple of cool interactions, one couple came by twice... One did a quick scan and told the other 'you are not interested in any of this.' The other starts looking immediately and I tell her 'you can any one piece free. She took a good one I had created for the postcard show. Very satisfying for both of us. Another person apologized extensively for bargaining me down to 20.00 dollars for a piece she loved, felt she was being insulting...didn't buy the piece. I tried to console her. Try again next Thursday, see what ha

16 Examples of how NOT to Pitch a LoglineI joined a Twitter dealie where you pitch to agents over Twitter, and I swear I learned more in one day about pitching than I have reading any number of how-to-write books.
A logline is a one sentence pitch of your story. It can be used on Twitter, but it's also used in person as an elevator pitch. It's the distilled essence of stakes, story, and character. Some people find it frustrating and intimidating, but I find it easier to do a logline than a query.
I got a few bites from agents, so I was quite pleased. I gained a lot of sympathy for them around 3 in the afternoon, though. Every pitch starts looking the same, and the really, really stupid ones start standing out. Some suffer from bad metaphors, bland stakes, or simple incomprehensibility. I've got 16 examples right here for you, so if any of your loglines look like these, you may want to consider a rewrite. (Incidentally, don't post your own loglines for my perusal. I'm not going to sit here and tell a bunch of people they
RWBY 3.0 - Story

This is will be broken down into 3 chapters, with chapter I available now
YouTube stuff + Update stuffSo, things are little bit hectic right now, and YouTube has been giving me a bit of hassle lately. I seem to have been losing subscribers since my last stream on my main channel, with a very big loss on my last Animated Atrocities upload, which is worrying, especially because any theory that I've had towards the numbers doesn't fit all of the evidence. (If people were getting sick of me talking about Growing Around stuff, then I should have had a positive turnaround when I uploaded an Animated Atrocities video). Add to that that like every single video this year has been copyright claimed, and let's just say that things have been discouraging as of late.
Other than that, I'm trying to stay optimistic, although the hot summer is making that a little bit difficult. But, some stuff that's coming up I guess. Most importantly is my Animated Atrocity review - with the upcoming Rugrats reboot, it's time to tackle Angelica and Suzie Preschool Daze, that show there that lasted four episo
Hyper-Surreal Fractal Chess Set - The GAMEThe 3D PRINTED
The Project I have been working on subconsciously for years, which I mentioned in my previous post is now finished.
--- The Hyper Surreal Fractalic Mystical Chess set - My Masterpieces ---
The full set is a play in 7 acts about humanity, the evolution and the quest for knowledge through enlightenment and superfluity until the day when mankind finally became the plague of the planet.
A chess set immensely more surreal than Max Ernsts, Marcel Duchamps and Dalís sets.
Chess was made to be played with pieces of pure fractal mathematics, I now know that!
