Constructive Criticism and the Commercial Artist
This is a topic that is much more sensitive than it really should be.  I wanted to cover it in detail because this entry has around 27k views now, so there's clearly a little interest in the overall topic of making freelance 3d art for a living.  This is going to be a lengthy article, but I think the discussion of how we deal with constructive criticism is a perennially important one, to the commercial artist first, but second to every artist that wants to improve their work.
Against the dim possibility that you're here at random from deviantart or elsewhere, and not someone already familiar with the world of rendering in Iray through Daz Studio, I'm a 3d artist who primarily sells art assets through a broker, Daz3d, and occasionally through a smaller broker, Renderosity. 
I offer a broker a product, and they decide whether to accept it onto the marketplace or not.  They

My photography is owned by myself, and you have no authorization to use them whatsoever without my given permission. They are not for commercial uses, and so you are denied to use them for that matter. Even though hundreds of my older photos don't have a watermark or :icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz: icon in the description, that doesn't mean you can still take them. Art theft is very wrong, and gives you a bad image.

ABOVE THE BEYOND: CHAPTER 1 will commence writing tomorrow! :happybounce:

(9:16PM when this was posted, New Zealand time)
Little brother Corban turns 12 on August 2nd, AKA today! :happybounce:

Happy Birthday to you! :thanks: :hug: :thanks:
My brother's 12th birthday is a week from today.......

.......and so is the 1st birthday of two certain plush owls.

(Personally, I think the top one is a little more important ;))
This is one of the stupidest videos I've ever watched:


The build-up part from 2:19 and beyond compels me :O
LOL when informercials on TV try to make the easiest things look so hard unless you buy whatever trash they want to sell.

And I swear every single one I've seen is voiced by the same male guy too.
It's been so windy overnight and this morning that a couple of poplar trees fell across our driveway! :ohnoes:

Luckily, they were further down our driveway away from our house, and they JUST missed my dad's woodshed he built :) I'm doing okay!
I've been willing to critique some offered artworks on dA, but I never feel up to it for this one reason:

I can't decide whether what I think is a flaw is actually supposed to be part of the art or not. For example, if I think one thing isn't quite right in the picture, I might get told I'm not seeing it the right way or such.
No questioning this.....but this little picture of Sonic is very oddly amusing to me ^^;…
(on the right side)
One day, on YouTube quick search:
"Why you shouldn't visit New Zealand"

That'd better be a F-ing joke.
If I don't start writing Above The Beyond this month, I promise I will start on it in July.

It's been very slow......I'm sorry :(
*Shiden roars and becomes a Super Saiyan*
Heads Up #2:

I have previously said after I write Ellen the Gryphon's bio (first female bio, the last Gryphive member), all my focus will be on Above The Beyond.

Well, even after that I'm still going to write profiles; they're going to be based on ATB's owl and crow characters so it keeps my flow for them going. All of them will be written in the same format as Naytal the Anderthon's profile, and I will divide my time so it works for me ^^

I'm not doing this because I'm forcing myself too, but really because I enjoy writing them and wouldn't want to become rusty at them! XD Plus, it may be something to hold you over while the next chapter is being written?

When I have those finished along with the first book itself, then will I return to writing my other bios :) I could change my mind, but we'll never know.

"Goulder is a chamber of power. Perhaps not as believable through text, but the moment one discovers him in person, they will find he is one to treat with utmost respect. A burly figure in the shape of the fourth Gryphive member, this composed titan is never unwilling to help those in need and is not to be easily ignored..."


As an act of generosity, I am going to feature here a first drawing done on a special tablet by my friend, Vexellacherry! :squee:
First Digital Art Attempt by VexellacherryVexella has been on DeviantArt for a while, but only yesterday did she upload her first piece of art. For a beginner with a drawing tablet, this tree picture is pretty amazin! ^.^

I would suggest checking out Vexella's gallery if you can, and maybe even say something nice :wave: It would be a kind thing!!
Why the hell is it already June 7?! :stare: Why is time going by so fast??
The newest addition to my collection:

Sonic Unleashed for Xbox 360! :D
HappyHyenaGirl Badrater FireRebelHeart  BlueWyst heart-of-a-dragoness HirobArt FernandoLemon DegreeInfinite fredmai petifox Mawrdok

This is a little heads up I would like to make:

I'm going to begin writing the most highly anticipated novel of 2018 in the world (Above The Beyond) pretty soon. I have two more character profiles to write of the Gryphive, whom are Goulder and Ellen. After I have written both of their bios, I will be diverting the majority of my focus on writing my book. I have spent so much time in crafting it and developing misc. things for it, and it's not going to be worth writing it if no one except me can read it. Something big like this I want to share with you guys will take me more effort than simply writing another character sheet, and I hope the wait is worth it!

I'm sorry in advance if this makes any of you mad...but here's the thing; I said "diverting *the majority* of my focus", which implies that I will have some time to work on another profile. That separate progress may be slow-going, but the next one will come eventually :)
