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. I have work available at D&H in LA, UU Art Guild in San Diego, Downtown San Diego Bar Basic Pop-Up show hosted by Thumbprint Gallery, and a fun raiser of sorts for Art on 30th in San Diego. Contact me if you would like to go to any of these places and chat. Here is some of the recent work:

here is a few of my favorites from around DA
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...
A few ones I like from other artist on DA...
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
Commissions + UpdateEDIT: We were able to finally get my dad's death certificate. Thank you all so much for your kind words, encouragement and support and to everyone who have offered to help, I really appreciate it a lot. 💕
I'm still accepting commissions, you can check the details below. Thank you!!! 💛
Thank you everyone so much for your thoughts, prayers and donations. Unfortunately dad did not wake up, he passed away last night. 😢
We still owe a big amount of money from the hospital (around 11 grand) and they might not be able to release him or we won't be able to get his death certificate until we pay the bill. We're hoping that they would at least accept our promissory note but yea, I need to do something. I'm very thankful for all the donations that you guys have offered but I realized I can't really rely on it alone so I have decided to just open a new batch of commissions cause I really don't have any other choice. I'm gonna be accepting slots until I reached my goal s

Using Cross-Figure With Genesis 8Cross-Figure Genesis 3 is a program that allows you to use Genesis 3 Female hair and clothing on Genesis 3 Male and vice versa without using AutoFit. There are some extra steps using it with Genesis 8, but you don't have to be able to use a modeling program (unless you want to make a better ID morph after you're done, but we'll get to that).
Here's a YouTube version. You'll have to turn your sound up. Sorry.
Genesis 8 Male and Female
Instructions G8F to G8M:
Load Genesis 8 Female into the scene.
Load a piece of clothing or hair onto Genesis 8 Female that you wish to convert.
Go to the Parameters tab. If you do not have one, you can create one by right-clicking near your existing tabs and finding it in the list.

F.A.Q. TIME!!I get quite a few messages here on DA with various questions and requests. I don't have time due to work and family to answer all of them individually like I would like so I think a handy-dandy FAQ is in order. This way maybe I can answer a question before it's even asked and/or have a journal I can easily direct people to. So here we go!
Q: Can you give me any tips on how to draw/color,paint/whatever better?
A: The quick and easy answer is that there aren't any secrets to being able to draw well. I know it's not what people want to hear and everyone is looking for a magic trick that will instantly make them a better artist. The truth is that I have dedicated 1000s of hours to art in an effort to get better. I attended figure drawing classes, went to conventions and spent hours talking to other artists, and spent nearly every dime I had on books and art supplies. I lived it and breathed it. When you were out on a date or playing video games or seeing movies I was probably home d
Happy New Year!Hope you're all doing well!
Sorry I haven't been around here at all! Been busy these past few months and I've found that dA stresses me out LOL. I feel like it brings out the worst in me and I definitely feel more relaxed since my time away from it. BUT I'd still like to come back and draw stuff here again eventually. I miss drawing pony stuff and the next gen characters and all that. So maybe soon! I know I'm definitely rusty but it'll be cool to see how much my style's changed I guess.
Just thought I'd throw in a little update. You all know how 2017 went for me based on my journals but I'd like to hear about yours! Go ahead an comment some of the cool stuff you got to do this past year or maybe even the not so cool stuff. Anything! Go for it! I'm curious~
Happy 2018 ✨
