That's right, I have elected to start taking commissions at this point in time. Here are the current rules and prices.

RULES:


1: Currently I am taking commissions for Photomanipulations only. Don't even ask about other mediums at this time.

2: I have the right to refuse any commission for any reason. If I say no, I mean no.

3: If I accept your commission and then later discover that it violates any laws or terms of service, I will report you to the relevant authorities. Don't put me in that position.

4: By it's very nature, photomanipulation requires the use of stock imagery.  All stock used must comply with the terms established by the owner of the original stock. If you send me stock you do not have the right to send, I will report you.

5: Yes, I will do mature works of art to include partial and full nudes, sensuality, and even mild sexuality. But, again, this is subject to rules 3 and 4.

6: At this time I will accept payment only via a combination of PayPal and Points. If you choose to use points, no more than half of the commission may be paid this way. The simple fact of the matter is that Points don't put food in my belly, and food in my belly is why I am opening up commissions in the first place.

7: Yes, you may provide images for me to use in the commission. However, again, see rules 3 and 4. The stock you provide can be of three types:

  7a: Reference material. If you are asking me to do a commission 
  of an MMORPG character or something similar, Reference material 
  is a must. I will ask you to send a multitude of images from many 
  angles. The higher the resolution and image size the better. These 
  may or may not be used in the commission itself.

  7b: Stock images. These are images created a third party for use
  by artists for a multitude of purposes. Most of these images have
  terms restricting how they may be used. If the use you want to put 
  the stock to would violate these terms, don't even send it. Stock
  frequently is not free to use, but requires a fee be paid. Stock fees
  are on you, not me. All stock provided must be high resolution and
  scaled appropriately to the commission being worked on. As an
  example, if you are providing a body for use as the central figure of
  a 3000px X 4000px image, the body must be 3000px X 4000px and
  high rez. If the stock is meant to be a bunny at the foot of the body,
  this can be a mere 500x500, but still high rez. To be safe, it is 
  recommended that if possible you have me check out the stock
  before you make a purchase!

  7c: Personal images. These are images that you have created yourself
  (usually photographs) and to which you own all the rights. If you
  want a "self insert" manip, these will be more or less required. I
  have the right to reject any of these at any time. Usually if I do so
  it will be the result of the image being too small, poorly lit, possessing
  a poor resolution, being too fuzzy, or other technical issues. If this is
  the case I will inform you what the problem is so that you can make
  a replacement more likely to meet with approval. Unless otherwise
  agreed to, you retain all rights to any image provided. Again, it is
  recommended that you check with me in regards to any provided
  images. NOTE: If you are in the Boise, ID area I can do the camera
  work myself.

8: Yes, I can do all the work to find the appropriate stock needed for the commission. I will do my best to find free images to use, but there is a good chance that I will be unable to find a free stock image. In the case that I have to use a stock image that requires a fee, I will pass all the information necessary to you to acquire the image. I will not work on the commission until I have the needed stock imagery.

9: This will not be an overnight project. A typical, easy photomanip for me is going to take around 10 hours. Those ten hours have to fit around my work schedule and obligations. I will get it done as quick as possible, but it may be a few weeks.

10: I require 25% of the cost up front and another 25% at the time I have the stock needed. Both of these are fully refundable if at any time either of us finds the commission untenable. The remaining 50% will not be required until the commission is finished. To reassure you that I'm not pocketing the money and running, I will send partial images from the work before you send the final payment.

PRICE:



For a simple image requiring only the most basic manipulation, the price is a flat fee of $25. This image requires the combination of no more than three very simple images, with precious little touch up. The price does not change depending on how much of the body (for living things) is included.


Images that require the combination of several elements, the price increases to $50. The more elements I have to deal with the longer the project I take and the more difficulty I have getting images that match up. This increases the time I have to have to put into the project. I'm passing that cost on.


The addition of extra focal figures that are NOT directly interacting is $25 per additional figure on top of the base cost. That second/third/fourth figure takes me just as much time as the first. Note, if the additional figure requires several combined elements, you're getting this at half the cost.


Images that require direct interaction between multiple focal figures are $50 per additional figure. Finding and meshing up two or more focal figures is Not Easy.


Images that require significant amounts of distortion of the base images are an additional $25 per focal figure. Stretching and molding figures into very different shapes without making them look like crap is very difficult. It takes a lot of time, patience, and learning.

If a background is complex enough to require as much work as a focal figure does, it becomes a focal figure itself and will be priced accordingly.

If any clothing is complex enough to require as much or more work as the figure wearing it, it becomes a focal figure itself and will be priced accordingly.

Any stock that has to be paid for in order to use will have the price passed on to you.

Jeeze that's expensive. Can I talk you into a lower price?


Yes.

All of these prices assume that when I am done, you will receive the final work and I will never have anything to do with it again. If you grant me certain privileges I will knock the price down.

The following are things you can do to lower the price by 10% each (up to a maximum of 50%, stock fees not included):

Let me post the finished product to DeviantArt.
Let me post the finished product outside of DeviantArt.
Let me sell prints of the finished work on DeviantArt (depends on stock art restrictions).
Let me sell prints of the finished work outside of DeviantArt (depends on stock art restrictions).
Let me use any stock art you provided for this project in future products.
Provide me with additional stock I may use for future products (depending on my approval of the images).
Commission an additional work (both images will be 10% off, not just the first image).

To Start:


Send me a note. Don't ask if I am available (clearly I am). Instead title it commission and give a base description of what you are wanting. I WILL respond back within two weeks. If you don't hear back in two weeks, send a second note because somehow the first one went amiss.

Thank you.
Hopefully no one is going to be asking this, since I didn't actually throw anything away this time.

But if you are asking, the answer is scraps, most likely. I just went through and did a significant cleanup job to reorganize everything in my gallery. This was a preparation step for future plans.

Keep an eye out here for more news.
So the other day I showed a merchant my photomanips. She thought them quite nice and would like to sell them when I have more stock. I'm a bit blown away. Another vendor I spoke to later let me know that her partner did all the art negotiation, and she lives in Nevada, do I have a website?

The result of that conversation is that I have created a new account yamamiyamamoru.deviantart.com/ in order to specifically showcase the "professional" photomanips I want to offer as prints. You'll still see some things here, but often those will be wips and tests and such. The final product will go up over at the new location.

By the way, several of the manips I've put up here have new, updated versions over there, so if you'd like to see the latest (and final) version of them, check them out over there. yamamiyamamoru.deviantart.com/
... think about them before you post them.

Lately I've been doing a number of photomanips. This is in part because a friend of mine has mentioned a few places he thinks I could sell them at. I could use the money, so I'm building up a portfolio for those purposes.

If you've been paying any attention, most of them involve nudity. A majority of that nudity includes the female form. I happen to find the human body beautiful, and the female form tends to be easier to work with. Less angles and bumps.

When I go looking for stock to use for these manips, I find myself looking through photos of absolutely amazing people. These individuals, female or male, are taking a huge risk. They are putting very intimate images of their own bodies out there in the public. Often they are providing images that are nearly life-size, trusting viewers with detailed knowledge of their bodies down to the last pore and wrinkle. The artist using these gets the sort of familiarity with their bodies usually only found in the bedroom. They are trusting other artists, they are trusting *me* to use their intimate, naked forms for my purposes. They are trusting me to not put their physical identity, their unique form in things that abuse them, demean them, or in any way violate them. I am trying to live up to this trust with my work.

If you like a manip I've done, that's wonderful. If you like the stock I used, that's great. If you want to compliment my work, or the stock I used, please do. Frankly, I'm needy for the affirmation that I'm not wasting my time.

But if you feel like leaving crude comments about the models, don't. Those are real people. Brave people. People with feelings, with values, with friends, with family. Don't abuse them like that. Ever. I will call you out on it. Publicly.

If you're unsure if what you want to say counts as offensive, simply ask yourself this. If I said it at work about and to a co-worker, would it get me written up or fired? If you even the slightest hesitation answering that question, then just don't post.

This isn't a request. This is a flat out directive.
I know that it is unlikely, but are there any of my images that any of you would like to see offered as a print?
(This is actually a repeat of a rant I did several years ago. But I still hold it to be true. Because it has slipped so far back into my journal history, and because of some recent conversations I've been having, I am reposting it to invite a new discussion. The original posting is here: sgtsareth.deviantart.com/journ… )

(Note:  Because of the nature of what I am discussing, assume any links I make will be potentially sexual in nature)

Based off of comments and events of late (mostly in other people's galleries) I've found myself wondering about the attitude we as a society have regarding sex and art.  I'm kind of wondering if I am really so off in my thinking.

What is up with our attitude about sex in the arts?  Or about sex in general.

Let's recognize a few facts here.  Sex and sexuality is one of the most important factors in our lives.  According to the Personality and Social Psychology Review, the average man had almost 5 sexual urges per day, the average woman 2 per day.[1]  So clearly, it's something that pretty much all of us are touched by in our daily lives.  We may not be having sex, but we're thinking about it.

Look at our advertising media.  Remember the phrase "Sex sells?"  Clearly it is recognized by the mercantile market that sex is a powerful motivator.  It is, in fact, a commonly joked about factoid in marketing, such as can be illustrated by this cartoon. [2]   Watch five minutes of typical prime time TV content.  Roughly 1/3 of the commercials will include sexually stimulating imagery.  You will see naked women covered solely with bubbles advertising hair care products, hot shirtless men being stared at by hungry women advertising pepsi, and of course no pair of Levi's looks right if you actually button them up.

Thumb through a typical magazine, see how many sexy women or ab-alicious men you come across trying to get you to buy something.  Take this ad for condominiums.  [3]  What does a shirtless man staring at a very sexy (and spread) pair of legs have to do with condos?

Movies.  These days even movies targeting children have suggestive content.  Movies for adults?  Even if there is no sex interest (I'm hesitant to call them love interests, given how often it seems like adventure flicks totally lack romance, but load up on sex), you are almost guaranteed to see some female naked or nearly naked for several seconds, even if there is no reason for you to.

I'm not even going to go into the prevalence of porn.

Sex is everywhere in our lives.  it is one of the biggest influences on us.

But if you look at the examples I've cited, sex is treated as a commodity.  It is a gimmick.  A means to an end.  It's sad, really.  Given that sort of stimulus, is it any wonder that we tend to have a warped idea of sex and sexuality?  Looking at these uses we put sex to, it seems as though we are poisoning our perspective.

Is that all there is to sex?  Hardly.  Sex is, in fact, a powerful force in our life that can be very positive, if used right, if respected.  Certainly, sex alone is no basis to build any sort of decent long term relationship.  But inside of relationships that are fundamentally sound, sex serves as a wonderful and powerful source of bonding, of bridging...  It is, ultimately, a position of trust and of giving.  Can people show more love to one another than by literally merging their bodies, letting another person enter their personal space in that way?  Anyone who has had really good sex with a person they love knows the way that it promotes a feeling that you are connected not physically, but spiritually, a literal "two become one" moment.

When you look at what sex can be, what it does for people, the way it bonds them, the way it symbolizes their ultimate trust of one another by willingly let that person literally take them in or enter them...  Sex really is a positive and good thing.  It should be celebrated for the wonderful things it does for us.

But we don't do that.  In spite of the fact that sex seems prevalent in movies, in advertising, in dirty jokes told in the locker room, sex, it seems, is a hush hush dirty secret.  In spite of the admonition, you can, indeed, talk about death and taxes at the dinner table.  Socially, that is an acceptable topic for polite company.  But even mention having a good orgasm with your Significant Other, and you will be banished from Aunt Gertrudes Thanksgiving Gathering for life.  We can make dirty jokes, we can use sex to sell, but god help us if we try to actually do anything positive with the idea of sex and sexuality.

This taboo that we've made sex into, then, can only be hurting us.  If all we see is gratuitous sex as a tool for mercantilism and a subject of dirty stimulation, then how can we not take that into our relationships?  We're creating a culture where sex, even between a loving pair who are devoted to one another, is something scandalous.  Want proof?  Remind yourself that, in order for you to be here, your parents had to have sex.  Most of you will cringe at the thought, because how could your parents do something so gross and disturbing?  Try asking for practical how to advice for how to make sex enjoyable for you and your partner within whatever arrangement you hold to be wholesome.  Awkwardness will ensue.

We can use sex to sell, to scandalize, to provoke, but we cannot discuss it openly and honestly.  We just don't seem to want sex to be a good thing to be celebrated as a culture.  It's like we're trying to stamp out good sex.

But what if we didn't have that attitude?  What if we wanted to celebrate sex as the powerful and positive force in our lives that it can be?  Is that even possible?  Can we, in art, depict sex and sexuality in a positive light?

Well, how about this?  The Kiss, by famous French sculptor Rodin [4] is a beautifully done work.  While the two lovers are not engaged in penetrative sex, their nude state, and the clear intimacy and passion of their kiss clearly gives us the idea of passionate, sexual love.  I suppose there are some out there who might find this statue to be lude, that it should be hidden from sight.  For me, however, this presents us with a celebration.  Look at the way the woman is clinging to the man, the way she is passionately engaged in the act.  This is a picture of how wonderful the physical aspects of love and romance can be between us.  Not only do I find there to be nothing shameful in this, I would, in fact, gladly show it to my children as an example of what they should look for in their own lives... love that is emotional, spiritual, and physical in which both partners can lose themselves to one another.

Or what about "Song of Solomon?"  Yes, a celebration of sex and sexuality IN THE BIBLE.

"How handsome you are, my lover!
       Oh, how charming!
       And our bed is verdant." [5]

"Your two breasts are like two fawns,
       like twin fawns of a gazelle
       that browse among the lilies.
Until the day breaks
       and the shadows flee,
       I will go to the mountain of myrrh
       and to the hill of incense. " [6]

Yes...  Sexual imagery, physical pleasure... in the Bible.  If it can be done in the book that Christians and Jews call God Breathed, then surely it is no sin to celebrate God's gift to those who love.

Certainly most of us would not object to Michelangelo's David.  Or at least I would so expect.  However there are those who have decided that this marvelous celebration of the male body is disgusting and should be hidden from us.  A vandal attacked the famed statue, damaging the left foot. [7]  Is this the world we live in, that we must mutilate the human form because it is natural?  Michelangelo gave us an honest depiction of the natural beauty inherent in the male form.  We should celebrate this beauty, as he did.

This sort of beauty is certainly recognized by other cultures.  Japan [8] has a long standing tradition of depicting sex positively in it's history.  India [9] not only celebrated sex, they adorned their temples with it and of course gave us the Kama Sutra.  Egypt, [10] Nepal, [11] China, [12] even the sexually repressive Medieval Europe. [13]  I'm not even going to bother linking anything Greek or Roman.

Even those areas currently causing controversy can be done in a beautiful and tasteful way. Gay [14] and Lesbian [15] sexuality have been given beautiful treatments showing that love, spiritual, emotional, and physical, is a beautiful thing to be praised and celebrated, not hidden and scorned.

Oh, certainly it can be treated horribly in art.  One can even find beautifully done works depicting parts of sex we'd rather not deal with.  Giambologna's Rape of the Sabin Women [16] is an artistic masterpiece, but it's depiction of the abduction of the Sabin women to become forced brides to the Romans certainly highlights a darker side to our sexual natures.  Pedophilia, [17] Bestiality, [18] even tentacle fetish [19] have received remarkably good artistic treatment, while dealing with subjects few of us would find to be healthy treatments of sex and sexuality.

Given that we can treat sex respectfully in art, can in fact depict it positively with a mind of celebrating this aspect of our lives, are we, in fact, doing ourselves any favors by repressing it?  Are we throwing out the baby with the bathwater?  Should we perhaps consider whether efforts to keep sex something dark and ugly only useful for selling things and getting R ratings on movies is, in fact, damaging our ability to function in our own romantic relationships and love lives?

I leave that for you to decide.

Yeah, it's been a bit since I updated this. Mostly I just wanted to point out that I do still live, and that occasionally I even toss up another of my tarot cards made in Second Life.

One of the individuals I follow put up a post stating she would draw chibis of a few submitted characters. I don't expect to be selected (and that's fine). But I thought that, for the fun of it, I'd put the description up here. If any of you are bored, knock yourselves out. Not that I expect any of you are. I find that artists usually suffer from a lack of time, not ideas...

For your consideration I present Lillith.

Lillith is a half elf priestess to an animistic religion. Though young she is growing confident in her ability to talk with spirits.

She has long, flowing brown hair and eyes, and very tan skin. She stands about 172 cm tall. She has a shy but pleasant smile and a charmingly bashful way of carrying herself. She is curvy without being big breasted. Typically she wears simple sun dresses or peasant skirts with blouses, usually in earth tones. Over this she will wear belts, underbust corset, and/or shawl Around her neck she always has a small "goddess" figure on a simple chain.

I have no references for her, but I do have references for bits of her appearance:

Just random thoughts:

The Steampunk Tarot is proving to be a very engrossing project. I even have gone so far as to figure out what it would take to actually produce decks when it's complete. I could probably sell decks for around $100 per. Let me know if you think it'd be worth exploring the idea further. Also, I'd like to have at least all of the Major and Minor Arcana done by World Steam Expo (www.worldsteamexpo.com/). That means 24 more cards in two months. I think that's quite doable.

I am also considering going through my old stuff and tossing a lot of it out. I'd appreciate thoughts on that as well.

Additional thought, not that I expect there to be much time for it, but is there anything people have seen me do in the past they'd enjoy more of?
And based on a comment that was just made to my previous journal entry, I find myself wondering... If I made the Steampunk Tarot available as art prints, would anyone actually buy any of them? Don't answer with "I'm sure someone would". Only answer yes if *you* would.
So, I'm starting to get far more serious about the project than I had been. The results I am getting are better than I expected, and I'm starting to feel good about the medium. As such, I have gone back and changed the description text under each of the cards created so far to reflect the meanings of the cards and to tell "the Fool's Journey" story that is embodied in the Major Arcana. If you are interested, start with "The Fool" fav.me/d34bg1p .

While I don't see anyone ever using this set (it is meant to be an art project interpreting Tarot through a steampunk lens, not a functioning deck) I am doing my darndest to try to include the proper symbolism and meaning in the re-envisioning of the cards. Do let me know what you think.
After thinking about some things for a while, I have made a decision.

I will no longer be submitting original fiction to Deviant Art. This has nothing to do with Deviant Art itself, it's a fine platform. It's mostly because of two things specific to me.

1) Original fiction placed on Deviant Art might count as being "published" because of the public exposure given. Should I write something I desire to publish professionally (don't hold your breath) having it on Deviant Art would be problematic.

2) I would like a little more control over who is seeing it, since I consider it all to be drafts of works in progress. Shuffling drafts around on Deviant Art is actually a bit inconvenient, so it's better for finished works anyway.

But this does not mean I am barring people from seeing any of my fiction. First, I will be leaving what fiction is already here on the site. More importantly, I am extending an invitation for people to follow a Live Journal I have set up. Because leaving it open to the general public would run afoul of issue #1 this journal is friends-locked. But if you have a live journal account I'd be glad to give you friend's-access to it.  Just let me know.

Some of you may recall that I had a Competitor in the Samurai Dueler's League some time ago. I basically took a hiatus from the SDL, and in fact from drawing altogether, while working on my Masters. I think... MAYBE... I have the time to start getting back into drawing again. As such I am contemplating rejoining.

What do people think?
I've put up a photo from SL, and now that I have and you can see it, I have a follow up question.

I was attempting to recreate a certain style from the Victorian age. During that time, sometimes photos would be taken (in black and white, as the technology did not exist to do color) and then be hand painted to add color. The photo I did basically repeated that. It could use a few tweaks, but I like the effect. Now, compositionally, the photo was based off of an actual Victorian era photograph. Yeah, a real photo from the late 1800s of a nude on a bicycle.

So the question. I have two projects in mind involving extended series of photos, and one of them is more of the above. Essentially, "colored" victorian erotica. A: What do you people think of the idea? B: Where's the line in such a project in terms of what should NOT be shown? (ie. sex or sexlike things)

(The other project is to use the same style to create a Steampunk Tarot series. But that actually takes a lot more work.)

Feedback on this is strongly desired.
I haven't done jack with this for like a year.  I've been so wrapped up in my Masters Studies that I haven't drawn a thing.

However, that doesn't mean I haven't done anything artistic.  I still have been doing some things that may count, and I want your opinions.  Should I post them here, or not?

Here's the thing.  I have been doing some writing (such as a series of tongue in cheek short stories about a maid on a steampunk airship) and I have been taking "photos" in Second Life.

I figure putting up the stories is probably fine, other people are already doing that sort of thing here.

But what about the "photos"?  I'm uncertain.  After all, I'm using other people's program in settings other people created to take a screen shot I can photomanip a bit.  I'm really divided on this, because on the one hand I believe I have some beautiful "photos" that could easily count as CG.  On the other hand, it almost seems like a bad idea, because I feel like my posting would completely dilute the work of people who spend days with CG programs building every last detail just so they can get that one shot...

I'll go ahead and put up one photo as an example of what I mean, but unless people really want this sort of thing, I'll probably erase it.

EDIT: And here it is. sgtsareth.deviantart.com/art/T… (Note, some nudity.)
It's been almost a year since I've posted anything here, but I am still around.  Some of you might be wondering what was such a big deal that I've blown the dust off to comment once more.  Well, I won't keep you in suspense.

There was a recent furor over on DeviantArt regarding how gender identity was being handled.  Before I go any further, allow me to state that it has been resolved by DeviantArt, so BEFORE anyone goes off on a tear, please be sure to get the WHOLE story, including the conclusion.  Some people believe that DeviantArt showed extreme prejudice towards people who don't fit the normative male-female gender duality through willful behavior, when in fact DeviantArt simply displayed a lack of understanding that is not their fault.  What happened is, in fact, a societal problem, not a DeviantArt problem, and I want to take the opportunity to explore that.

First, here's the story.  An individual who identifies as "neutrois"(www.neutrois.com/faq.html) recently returned to DeviantArt after an extended absence.  DeviantArt's enrollment policy required one identify as male or female.  Being that neither applied, the individual approached DeviantArt to ask for a correction and was rebuffed by several of the initial contacts.  After extended discussion of this by the community as a whole, DeviantArt has since recognized that this was actually a matter of some import, and taken steps to correct the issue.  Individuals who do not fit into the simplistic male/female dichotomy now are allowed to select "other," and DeviantArt is looking at ways to allow one to even enter a gender choice that goes beyond male/female/other.  (The initial problem: transfinite.dreamwidth.org/215…) (The DeviantArt announcement about how they are resolving this matter with greater sensitivity to the issue and needs of all of its members: spyed.deviantart.com/)

As I was saying, the issue here is not with DeviantArt.  DeviantArt's initial (bad) reaction to the situation was not willful or complicit.  Deviant was actually another victim of what is actually a socially created problem.

What has happened is that society has constructed a sexual binary perspective on the world.  What does that mean?  Well, let's break these things down part by part.

First we need to understand the basis of what society is.   Essentially (and far oversimplistically) society is the collection of all of us.  Society is held together by a collection of rules that let us know how we are to behave towards one another.  If we didn't have these rules, society could not exist, and as a result, we would not be the human species as we know it.  We'd be a loner species that couldn't do anything in groups larger than 1.  We need these rules.

How do we get these rules?  Well, simply, we construct them through a constant interplay of discussion and interaction.  Sometimes we do it quite consciously.  When a co-worker declares "Alright, that does it!  New Rule!  No Rickrolling using the PA system!" and everyone goes "Hell yeah!" we have knowingly constructed a new rule.  Most rules, however, are constructed unknowingly.  If every day, in the morning, I wave to you as I pass by on the way to work, and you wave back, no one is declaring a rule.  But if, after a year of this, I wave and you don't wave back, that sudden change will cause negative feelings in me.  We never intended to create a rule, but my negative response is the result of your "breaking the rule" we didn't know we'd created.

This entire collection of rules, most of which we don't even think about and didn't know we created "constructs" our society and worldview.  Some of these rules are pretty damned solidly based.  "Don't kill people" is a pretty darned powerful rule, because it is based in some pretty darned heavy shit.  "Don't swear around kids" on the other hand is a purely specious construct.  Even the idea that some sounds are offensive sounds is purely imagination on our parts, let alone that we shouldn't utter them around children.  That's not to say that the rule "don't swear around kids" is idiotic and should be gotten rid of.  If we all agree on it, then violating it becomes not an issue of actual damage to children, but an attack on society.

Sometimes society needs a good attacking, however, and our next bit of parts in the question of what socially constructed sexual binary is.  That's the "sexual binary" part.

Generally speaking, our bodies tend to come in two very generalized types.  We have a type with an "innie" and a type with an "outie."  We call an "innie" a vagina and an "outie" a penis.  Now, there are exceptions to this rule resulting from some interesting oddities about our genetic code, birth practices, and etc.  But 99.9% of the time, it's pretty clear that you've got either an innie or an outie.  In the Social Sciences we refer to this differentiation as "sex".  This whole sex thing is pretty much a biological/physical thing that can be altered through surgery, but generally speaking is a pretty solid, indisputable thing.

The problem is what happens when we start constructing rules surrounding these.  Over a long period of time, through all kinds of things, we created rules that not only stated an innie makes you a girl and an outie makes you a boy.  Then we made even more rules (often without thinking about it) such as boys do the hunting, girls do the gathering, boys make the rules, girls make the dinner, boys stick outies into girls innies but not into each other (or into girls smaller, tighter back innies), etc.

Well, all these rules created what we professional snobs (known as social scientists) call "gender".  Gender is, basically, the identity you tend to have in terms of sexual expectations.  If you are a "girl" the social rules expect you to not only do what these rules say girls do, but we even expect you to do it because you believe it's natural to do these things.

Unfortunately, we went and forgot 1: we created these darned rules in the first place, and 2: gender and sex aren't the same thing.  Because we forgot both of these things, we ended up with the following progression: There are two sexes -> because there gender is the same thing, there are two genders -> because there are two genders, there isn't a third (or fourth, or fifth or...) option.

In short, we have constructed a "reality" of gender that, in fact, has nothing to do with the reality of sex, or reality in general.

We've gotten darned used to thinking like that.  And in general, over a long set of years, (like, thousands) it's actually worked pretty good.  It's been completely abusive and utterly unfair... but at least everyone knew what the rules were and we all could get along (unfairly and abusively) under them.

But what happens when someone comes along and insists on picking a third option?  Well, we decide they are off their rocker because everyone knows there's no third option.  We don't decide this because we're assholes, or bigots, or we are trying to force people to conform with our personal beliefs.  We decide this because it is "obviously true".  Worse, when that person insists that, no, it's not so obviously true, it pisses us off because now they're forcing us to defend what we shouldn't be wasting our time defending, because IT IS OBVIOUSLY TRUE, GAWDAMMIT, GO PUT YOUR BIG GIRL PANTS ON AND CHILL ALREADY!

It's only when we really are forced to confront these things, and forced to actually look at the difference between sex and gender, and to think about the implications that these differences make that we can even begin to start looking at the third (plus) option.  And when we do, it gets really, REALLY uncomfortable.  Why? Well, remember what I said about why these rules exist?  They exist because we need rules to figure out how we can actually have a society.  When we trash a rather IMPORTANT set of rules (like how girls and boys play together while trying to figure out how to stick the outie in the innie) it leaves us without these rules, and thus without a clue what the hell do we do now?

And that's what happened here.

Fortunately, because the rules are our creation in the first place, we can create new rules whenever we go and smash up the old ones.  The key to doing this is getting together and understanding.  If we just make new rules without first understanding what is *really* going on, we're just going to make another set of messed up rules someone's going to bump.  But if we get together and talk about things, and really understand one another, well, the rules will just kind of take care of themselves.

So...  Yeah.  Just felt like ranting about it for a bit.
Well, not in the key area.  I pulled straight A's my first semester in Grad School.  So that's cool.  But there was a price.

I haven't drawn in six months.  And one of my big ambitions got seriously set back.  Had things gone as I'd originally planned, the online graphic novel I've been wanting to do since 2005 would be launching tomorrow.  Instead it may never be done.  It's the whole reason I started teaching myself to draw in the first place.

I could still do it if I had an artist willing to draw to my script.  I have four chapters already plotted out.  But that's so not going to happen.  Even if I was willing to trust someone to do it, there's no way I'd find an artist willing to do it in the first place.  Not with this story.  Too depressing, too many questionable elements, and they'd have to put up with me...

I really like the direction things are going in school, but...  I rather miss what might have been.

So I agreed to participate in a Secret Santa thingy being run by :iconthumbjr:  As part of that, I'm supposed to give a wishlist from which people can choose from to do whatever gift (art or writing) they're going to create for me.  So here it is.

Fan art, of course, can simply be pictures related to these.  As for stories...  I'm particularly fond of situations surrounding unresolved sexual tension and/or yuri(ish) situations.  However, not all of these favorites of mine are quite friendly to that (hello... the Gunslinger Girls are younger teens.  Yeaaaaaaaaah, yuri of that *might* be in questionable taste.  Might.)

Original Characters:

Mayumi
Saeko

Fandoms:

MegaTokyo
Firefly
ガンスリンガー·ガール
鋼の錬金術師
Errant Story

Additional Notes:

I'll take anything from Rated G to Rated XXX.  If you have questions about any of this, feel free to pass them through :iconthumbjr: to me.

I haven't drawn or posted anything worth doing in ages.  I'm sure some of you are wondering where the hell I've been.  I'm sure the rest of you have been relieved I've not been drawing, glad that your character hasn't shown up in in flagrante delicto with another girl.

Breathe easy, you're not going to be seeing much of me for a while.

For those of you not aware, I am in a Master's program at one of the local universities.  It is recommended that Master's Candidates not take more than 8 credits a semester.  I'm taking 10, a 25% increase beyond the recommended level.  I'm also working 30 hours a week.  Oh, and working on a Master's Thesis.  I don't even have time to sneeze, let alone do art.

I'll see you in a couple years.

Maybe.

I am insane...

So, there's a contest that sounds like it would be a lot of fun to get involved in.  Unfortunately, to enter, Mayumi would have to have a romantic partner...

And she's still frustratingly single.  (Yes, I used a variant of the word "frustrated" on purpose.  Believe me, she's been yammering in the back of my head about it ceaselessly, and eyeing long, thin objects in an alarming manner.)

*sigh*

So if anyone knows of an SDL character on need of a girl loving girl, do let me know...
