......................................................................................................................News:
Wow, it's been ridiculously long since I said anything. Biggest news affecting the account:
1. I'm in AP art, so my resource shooting style has changed a little to fit what I need for personal references.
2. I'm eighteen now. Doesn't mean I'm gonna start showing more skin, just means I've had this account FOREVER. (84,000 pageviews??? When did THAT happen?) And I can start selling prints.
3. I have a complete studio now, with backdrops + lighting equipment. Also, saving up for a new shiny D5000. Or D90, depending on my patience level.
4. I've applied to be an exchange student for an entire year in Germany. So. If I get to, the studio and props and costumes will go bye-bye, and I'll probably convert to background stock for a while. But I also know that a lot of deviants are located in Europe, so it might be fun to do some collaborating with them while I'm over there.

But we're going to focus back on the AP Art part for a minute. The way the class works is we have to submit an AP portfolio at the end of the year, showcasing our best work. It will be rated by a panel of judges, and if we get a passing score, we get college credit. It's been a great program and I've learned a ton. I love it. But it also means that my primary art style has shifted from photomanipulation to digital painting. I've become pretty decent at it (enough so to sell prints. Wink wink.). But I've discovered that my best references have focused directional lighting that causes a high dynamic range of tones. It gives more life to the skin in the paintings. So I have been shooting some resources, but they aren't ideal for photomanipulation. I've thought about trying to do some more stock soon, particularly with the new backdrops, but it's hard to find time and inspiration. :/

Anyway, that's the gist of what's going on right now. //End Transmission

......................................................................................................................Rules:


1. Don't worry about telling me before you're going use my stock. Just send me a link when it's finished. Images off site and prints are permissable, but you must tell me if that's your intention.

2. Requests are welcome. I DO NOT DO NUDE OR UNDERWEAR SHOTS! End of discussion.

3. Please give credit and a link to my page in your description for your piece. Also, send me a link to the finished deviation.

4. MAKE AN EFFORT! If you just crop and filter, it's almost as if you're stealing.

5. I may be adding little "behind the scenes" pictures to my scraps. Please don't use them. That's not why they're there. They're just part of the fun, y'know?

6. Print permission is available. Please tell me images that you'd like to submit as prints and I can send in permission to the print mods for you.

You're really lucky your school offers AP Art. It's an amazing opportunity and one I wish I'd had. Best of luck with your coursework.
