Model Safety - Please Read!
After a conversation with a model over the weekend I feel the need to address something I don’t see much about on dA: Model Safety.
With the increase of internet modelling sites such as One Model Place, Net Model, Model Mayhem and similar, it has never been easier to promote yourself either as a model or a photographer and there has been an explosion of want to be talent on both sides of the camera in recent years. Nowadays anyone with an internet connection and a couple of hundred £/$’s can set up an internet account, go out and buy a professional looking camera and call themselves a photographer. Like any trade there are professionals, there are great amateurs and there are sharks.
For the sake of this article I’m going to use the industry standard term; GWC (Guy With Camera), for the sharks. While I don’t want to misalign anyone personally in the trade, it has been my experience that for every two professionals I’ve met, I’ve met a GWC only in it f

Convention Art Shows 101 Part 2
So, hopefully you've got a basic idea of what a sci fi/fantasy convention art show is, the question is... what's next? How do you get your art into the show?
I'll be breaking this journal up into the mechanics behind registering and such for the cons.
Choosing your con
This part is... well it's kind of tricky. It takes experimentation, research, and word of mouth before you settle on what conventions will be your regular ones to send to... or attend.
My favorite place to start is with this site:
The guy who does this is pretty up to date on what's going on with all of the cons, and provides various ways to sort it all out.
Another place to go is  It's a yahoo group that was set up by the original art show director for Dragoncon (he's since stepped down and there is a wonderful couple who run it now). They have a calendar area that lists conventions as well.
Generally local c

Hey there! I realize I have been extremely inactive on this account, and have realized that meant that many messages went unread and unanswered. I appologize for that. So, I'm adding a two rule, one which should be helpful for you.

7. Use for school purposes are fine. You don't have to ask, just be sure to credit as needed and I'd like to see a finished picture.

8. If you have a question or wish to use my pictures in commercial projects, contact me at my SBibb account: &nbs… it will probably go unanswered.

Meanwhile, thanks to everyone who has used my images; I'm glad I could help! :-)



I've decided to have a stock art account in addition to my main account ( However, there are a few rules to follow.

1. Do not use my stock in mature/gory/sexual art. I do not want to see this and would like to see what my art is used for. A small battle scenenario is fine, but I don't want to see extremes.
2. I will most likely allow you to use my stock in prints, still ask first.
3. Ask before using my art on other sites. If it is for family friendly sites, for noncommercial use, (example, Furry Paws), that's fine.
4. Credit me by linking the picture used in the stock or by linking to my stock account page.
5. Note me or post a link to your stock on the page of the photo you used. I want to see what my art has been used in! :-)
6. Don't simply change the colors or contrast of the photo, actually do some manipulation and such before you call it a derivative.
7. Use for school purposes are fine. You don't have to ask, just be sure to credit as needed and I'd like to see a finished picture.
8. If you have a question or wish to use my pictures in commercial projects, contact me at my SBibb account: &nbs… it will probably go unanswered.

I think that's it. Have fun! :-D

I thought I might want to use at least one of your images for my articles on paganism at Please let me know if this is okay with you. For example, the photo of the maypole I was considering for an article about Beltane (it's like May Day).
