Where'd [insert artwork here] go?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.
Devious Journal EntrySo 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 http://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. http://yamamiyamamoru.deviantart.com/
When You Leave Comments...... 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 fo
Prints?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?
Sex, Sexuality, and Art(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: http://sgtsareth.deviantart.com/journal/Sex-Sexuality-and-Art-235535671 )
(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
It's been a while.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 peasa
UpdateJust 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 (http://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?
Prints?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.
Steampunk TarotSo, 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" http://sgtsareth.deviantart.com/gallery/#/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.

Protecting yourself from Paypal chargebacksI decided I'd write something on this since it seems to be affecting a lot of my friends and artists I'm close to. I'll start with a few disclaimers.
I am not a finance expert. I have never filed a chargeback nor have I been in a chargeback dispute (fortunately). I have done some research out of both curiosity and out of desire to help out the community a bit. This is going to be quick(ish) and summarized. I'm also going to be changing some things to the way I sell as well (obviously).
This journal isn't about what to do in a chargeback dispute but rather, how to set up your sales so that you'll have the upper hand when having to deal with a dispute. I've included some useful links at the bottom for further information!

Close To You - Lyrics - Sans VersionTHE FLOWERS OF THE NEW AND LAUGHTER OF THE PAST,
THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL LIKE YOU, BEAUTY UNSURPASSED!
GONE WITH A WHISPER, YOU FALL ASLEEP LIKE DEATH,
BREAKING THROUGH THE EARTH, YOUR SMILE SHINES AGAIN!
MY EMPTY GRATITUDE, ANOTHER EMPTY THANK YOU,
I FINALLY LEARNED REGRET, FROM WORDS I'VE ALWAYS SAID.
NEVER MEANT TO SPEAK TO HURT, YET IT HURT TO PUT IN WORDS,
GOODBYE WHEREVER YOU ARE, GOODBYE UNBROKEN HEART.
IN TRUTH I WANT TO FEEL, THE TRUTH I WANT TO SEE,
I'M TRYING TO EMBRACE YOUR DRIFTING HEART AND SMILE!
WHENEVER I BEGIN TO FEEL THE BURNING TEARS OVERFLOWING FROM MY EYES,
I KEEP ON LOOKING FORWARD AT YOU, HOPING THAT YOUR LIGHT WILL NEVER PASS ME BY!
I WONDER WHAT THE STARS THAT SPARKLE IN YOUR EYES ARE HIDING FROM MY MIND,
HIDING FROM MY OPEN HEART AND FROM YOUR OPEN HEART!
TOGETHER, YOU AND I WILL ALWAYS BE ALIVE, CONNECTED, CLOSE TO YOU I'LL STAY!
AS LONG AS I CAN HOLD YOUR HAND AGAIN AND AGAIN, FOREVER, I WILL FIND MY WAY!
YOU MAY NEVER ANSWER BACK MY CALL BUT YOU SMILE AT ME WITH

TLECs 2nd Annual Training Show RESULTS UPSo, this is a wee bit late, please ignore the huge time gap. XD
TLEC has decided to once again, open its gates to the public for another large training show. This time, it was to be run a little differently. Last time was stressful, and thats not the point of a training show. With that being said, they set up the new list of classes and decided on a different judging style. This time, there would be playful classes as well, to make it more family oriented.
- No fighting or harassment, we are an equal opportunity stable
- All breeds may enter, but no unnatural powers may be used to get an advantage
- Judging is simple, both effort and rng for performance (guide will be listed below)
- Linearts, Photomanips, Trades, and Commissions may enter (tracing is allowed, at the very least list you have used a ref)
- Old entries may be submitted, but will receive a penalty for not fitting the setting
- No extra
