The Price of Art
What determines the price of art? What is art worth? Is it really worth anything? Why should people buy art?
First of all, the major point in all of this is that the price of art is completely subjective, meaning that its value is mainly determined by the person viewing it. The second part of the value of artwork is determined by the cost of materials, and the cost of the artist's time, as well as how in demand their work is. Then there are different price scales for Fine Artists, Graphic Artists, Illustrators, Freelance Artists, Web Designers, etc. All of these factors add up to the price of artwork.
For my purposes, I will discuss Fine Art and Illustration, which is what I am most familiar with.
With fine art, the price tags can run incredibly high. This is where the price is most subjective, because something that is crap to one person is priceless in worth to another. Art speaks to all of us in different ways.
That's all well and good, you may say, but what about those huge canvase

Uniqueness in Creativity
Originality is dead.  We all know this.  Everything has been done before at this point.  It is just the place where we are at in humanity.  One person creates a piece of art, or writing, or music, or poetry (any creative arena, really) and while most people think "wow that's so original!" invariably somebody, somewhere is going "hey, that was MY idea!" or "Hey, I've heard that riff before in this song over here." or "Hey!  That artist already did something like that over there!" when this person (to their knowledge) copied nothing, drew from nothing of than their own minds.  I know you all know what I mean.
For instance, my certain "style" of artwork coincided almost at the same time with other similar artists in my genre, such as Kyoht and Dark Natasha, and I am sure hordes of others.  Does it mean we were "copying" one another?  How in the world could we have been doing that before we even knew of one ano

Hit another minor bump August 24, when my Mother ended up in the hospital for a few days, on account of some kidney issues, which Luckily she's gotten over, actually shes feeling better than she has in a long while now! ^_^  

So I figure I better get to writing a jornal entry and start getting back on the commission train, before something else horrible happens. Haha

I've been gone from here long enough that I might as well have been considered dead by a good majority of you. >.<

Now, without further ado, onward to our typically scheduled Updates!

Opening Statements

I would like to Start off with thanking everyone again for all the support you gave me during the past few months! It all really helped me get through it all. ^_^

I'd also like to Thank you all for getting me to 100k+ Pageviews during my absence! ^o^

In celebration and as an additional thank you, I've temporally made 10 PG-Rated Transformation themed pieces over at my Patreon Gallery Public! By “G-Rated” I mean pieces without Nudity (I rate Artistic Nudes as R because of the nudity factor which is likely just my personal reasoning behind it there is nothing really that inappropriate there, strange or scary definitely though haha). They will remain public for the duration of September. I hope you all enjoy the works there and possibly decide to support me through the platform to see future pieces as well! ^_^

Concerning Personal Projects

Ive recently gotten around to finishing up a portrayal of an Anthro Whale Shark. I wanted to at least have one thing to post here once I decided to get things back up and running. Other than that, just been working on Patreon art for the most part, and some 3D modeling now and then. Still debating on uploading some of the 3D stuff to here but its pretty unrelated to the theme of stuff typically found in my galleries.

Concerning Commissions

I'm open for commissions once again! Cheers

There are so many of you in wait, taking that into consideration, I may not be able to get around to all of you this round, if you are still interested please send me another Note.

Currently, I have :iconkantuck-nadie: on all slots for illustration work, she's been waiting for the longest time and has a LOT for me. Also, all things considered her project is very important to her and the last wishes of a loved one. I really want to help make the publication of her story a reality!^_^

Once I'm done with those I'll probably send out Notes to the others who've sent me commission inquires, and we will see what happens from there.

Again, I encourage anyone who has sent me a note Regarding Commissions in the past few months to resend them if your still interested!

Thank You All and I look forward to bringing your visions to life once again! ^o^

You can Find my Complete Commission Info here:…

Concerning Patreon

Recently :iconcanine-lupus: has started a Discord Channel Group for Patrons of his, I think it only costs a $1.00 monthly contribution. Every Full Moon he holds a Q&A there regarding Transformation themed subjects as well as highlights and insights into his own works.

I too Participate in it and answer questions regarding my works! I also tend to pop on during the week, to hang out and share art every now and then, Free of charge. winks

For more information on that, visit his Patreon here

I've managed to keep my Personal Patreon updated during all the chaos of the past few months. The gallery there is approaching 110 pieces of art, 20 of which are Full Sequences.  

As mentioned before, I'll be making public some of the works there for the duration of September. I hope they will encourage new people to become Patrons! ^_^

You can find my Patreon here:

Concerning Another Small Development

With the assistance and encouragement of a friend of mine, I've decided to Revive my Facebook account. I'm not exactly sure what I'm gonna do with it yet, apart from just re-posting some of my works from my galleries there as advertising. We shall see what the future holds! Feel free to look me up and add me there if you like. Or “Like” my posts there, or whatever it is you all do there. lol ^_^

In Closing

Thank you all for all that you have done for me and for your kind support during the hardship of the past few months. I'm so glad that things are possibly getting back to normal enough that I can start bringing your visions and dreams to life again.

Oh how I have missed you all so! :)
