Looking for new Contributors to act as AdminsHello everyone,
as you can see it has been a long time since this group has been active. Most of the other admins have not been active on this page in over a year besides me and another admin. So I want to invite between 2-3 new admins to the page. I have been very busy lately and I want to make sure art submissions are accepted even if I am gone for a month.
so what will you job be?
-accepting new art submissions
-making sure they are in the right gallery
-vote on other matters as necessary
If you are interested please just write a short response describing why I should pick you as one of the new admins. If you have any questions also feel free to ask me.
Update: Austrailian WoT conHi guys,
So the con runners have a site up, check it out at www.landofmadmen.com or the DA page at thelandofmadmen.deviantart.com which has less info.
It looks like the people who've been putting this together have been hard at work, and the starting date for the con is Sept 26 2015 in Sydney.
Check it out if you're interested!
Australian WoT artistsPassing on a message from Lupus-deus-est
I can't say too much here, but can you put a call out for any Australian WoT fanartists to urgently contact me?
I can tell you what it is about, although I'd rather you did not share just yet - we got permission from Harriet to set up a WoT con here and I am fielding for stall holders.
We don't have a venue just yet, hence no public announcement, but if you could put this call out...
Flight from Shadow (WoT Fan Film)Saw a link on :iconreddera:'s Facebook page and of course couldn't resist.
Here's the full film on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nt10nbVSerY
'Flight From Shadow' TrailerHere's a trailer of a fan-made film based on Wheel of Time called 'Flight from Shadow'. From what I can tell it's based on chapters from The Eye of the World when Rand and Mat make their way to Caemlyn. Not too sure about the Aes Sedai at the end of the trailer - looks like an original addition to the story. But check out the trailer - it looks amazing so far! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVbJY600-xE
Should Fan Art be Sold?This thought kind of occurred to me while I was scrolling through Society6 and seeing all the fan artwork that gets posted on there for sale. The strange thing though is that Society6 has certain rules regarding copyright, and if we do not have the permission to sell something that is not entirely ours we shouldn't do it. However, there are so many people on that site (most of them artists whose artworks I love) ignoring this.
Considering how hard it is to get permission from the owners of certain creative works (I know I haven't heard back from some people for posting the book covers of WoT books on here, hence the 'deviation in storage' storm in one of our gallery folders), I'm doubting that some of these people have that permission.
I'm wondering what everyone on here thinks - I personally am interested to hear everyone's thoughts, since I am currently trying to sell prints on Society6 but I do more fan art than I do original work (sad to say)

I'm currently reading an English translation of the Chinese novel Journey to the West or the story of the Monkey King if you prefer. I'm planning on reading The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas next.

Some quick recognition tipsI remember it can be quite tough to gain recognition on DeviantArt when you first start out. It's a massive website with so many features and ways to interact! When I started out, I was lucky to have a friend of mine giving me a little shoutout in their journal, which gained me my first couple of watchers. I'll do the same in this journal for some new Deviants I found that have really cool galleries, and I thought of giving a couple of tips as well on gaining recognition:
~ TIPS ~
Loads of interaction! DeviantArt is considered a social media website as well as an art site, and offers many more tools for interaction, feedback, and commenting than Twitter/Instagram/Tumblr ever will! Use it wisely If you want to receive comments, and have people view your art, you have to put some effort in yourself as well. Comment on other people's artwork, +fav it, +watch those you really like, keep communicating. Try interacting with other new ar
16 Examples of how NOT to Pitch a LoglineI joined a Twitter dealie where you pitch to agents over Twitter, and I swear I learned more in one day about pitching than I have reading any number of how-to-write books.
A logline is a one sentence pitch of your story. It can be used on Twitter, but it's also used in person as an elevator pitch. It's the distilled essence of stakes, story, and character. Some people find it frustrating and intimidating, but I find it easier to do a logline than a query.
I got a few bites from agents, so I was quite pleased. I gained a lot of sympathy for them around 3 in the afternoon, though. Every pitch starts looking the same, and the really, really stupid ones start standing out. Some suffer from bad metaphors, bland stakes, or simple incomprehensibility. I've got 16 examples right here for you, so if any of your loglines look like these, you may want to consider a rewrite. (Incidentally, don't post your own loglines for my perusal. I'm not going to sit here and tell a bunch of people they
Hello Friends New and Old!Hey gang! This entry's been a long time coming and I've got a lot of ground to cover, so let's just jump in!
First off, to whoever got me the core membership: THANK YOU!! Your kindness was a big factor in my decision to be more active on dA again. That was a wonderful present so much gratitude and hugs. Wow.
NEW FOLLOWERS (and curious onlookers!)
Welcome! Welcome! And thank you so much for your interest in my work. Regardless of what got you here, I really appreciate your time and energy. I've gotten a lot of questions about my work, views, and all sorts of other stuff. Since I've been away for a while, I'm gonna do an FAQ in a week or two to get you guys up to speed. I did want to give you folks a shout-out though since I know there's been an influx with some of my older work making the rounds again. I'm very grateful to have you here.
Now, to my longtime friends here: You're are probably wondering "Where have you been, K-Bo?" Wow. Where to start... Without getting into to

Hyper-Surreal Fractal Chess Set - The GAMEThe 3D PRINTED
The Project I have been working on subconsciously for years, which I mentioned in my previous post is now finished.
--- The Hyper Surreal Fractalic Mystical Chess set - My Masterpieces ---
The full set is a play in 7 acts about humanity, the evolution and the quest for knowledge through enlightenment and superfluity until the day when mankind finally became the plague of the planet.
A chess set immensely more surreal than Max Ernsts, Marcel Duchamps and Dalís sets.
Chess was made to be played with pieces of pure fractal mathematics, I now know that!

YouTube stuff + Update stuffSo, things are little bit hectic right now, and YouTube has been giving me a bit of hassle lately. I seem to have been losing subscribers since my last stream on my main channel, with a very big loss on my last Animated Atrocities upload, which is worrying, especially because any theory that I've had towards the numbers doesn't fit all of the evidence. (If people were getting sick of me talking about Growing Around stuff, then I should have had a positive turnaround when I uploaded an Animated Atrocities video). Add to that that like every single video this year has been copyright claimed, and let's just say that things have been discouraging as of late.
Other than that, I'm trying to stay optimistic, although the hot summer is making that a little bit difficult. But, some stuff that's coming up I guess. Most importantly is my Animated Atrocity review - with the upcoming Rugrats reboot, it's time to tackle Angelica and Suzie Preschool Daze, that show there that lasted four episo
