Apparently it's been 4 years since my last journal update.  It's probably been that long since I was last on this account.  Wow.  I have kids now.  I no longer have an actual camera, just my phone's camera.  I may or may not be posting to this account again soon.  If I do, the pictures will be from my phone until I can afford to get a decent-ish camera to carry around with me.  In the meantime, feel free to continue to use what's here :)

Having just gone through 106 messages, I can say that I saw...maybe 2/3 of the "links" I was given.

"I used your stock" Telling me you used my stock is great...thank you.  But please give me a link to it as well.  It's in my rules.  I know the sentence in the rules sounds casual, but it's still a rule.  I want to see what you've done.

"file not found" messages are annoying, especially if the link is less than a week old...but I understand that sometimes pieces just come down.  However, if it's a case of a messed up link, I'm sorry I won't see your work unless you give me the link again.

"I used your stock here" ...where?  Your "here" wasn't a link, you didn't give me another one, and when I visited your gallery, I couldn't figure out what piece you'd used it in.  This happens way too often.  

"I used your stock [link-to-my-stock]" Thank you for letting me know you used my picture, but I wanted to see your art, not the stock I posted.

OK, I know that sounded a little whine-y, but it was kind of getting to me between my model account, this one and texture account.  I really do appreciate all of the comments and links you send me, and am truly amazed by some of the outstanding things you all can do with stock.  I love art, I love taking pictures, and it makes me happy to see my pictures used in awesome art pieces!

New stock will come, I promise.  My husband and I just moved into a new place and life is getting back to a normal-ish mode :)  Expect pictures soon :)


..and if I can self-promote for a moment, there is some newer jewelry over at my art account:
:iconlittlewolfcat:
...I love comments on my jewelry :heart:

Hey all.  
I'm not exactly back, but I'm going through the 600+ messages and links y'all left me since I went missing in 2008.  Long time.  Yikes.  Anyway, I'll eventually get to everybody and sometime in the hopefully near-ish future there will be new stock here and on my model account.

'cause if you left one after April 14...I accidentally just deleted it  :omg:  
I meant to delete favorites...not comments...*sigh*  well...
I know barely any of you who commented actually watch me, and of those who watch me even fewer will actually read this journal...but on the off chance that you do...if your comment was a link, please re-send it so I can see your work... :please:

Okay, so I have a question...

I recently submitted a bunch of shots taken out of an airplane window.  I considered putting most under Nature, but I ended up just putting them under Misc.  That, I realize was a bit of a mistake.
However...
wolfc-stock.deviantart.com/art… (a shot of a mountain) was moved to Places.
wolfc-stock.deviantart.com/art… (a shot of the wing of the airplane) was moved to Nature.
...by dA, obviously.  But here's my question...if my things are going to re-categorized, shouldn't at least those two be reversed?  I mean, a shot of an airplane wing isn't exactly Nature, and if an overhead view of a mountain is a Place rather than at least Nature, then I need to re-categorize a crapload of stuff ...because a tree can be a place, so can a grove of trees, so can a pond, so can clouds...

I don't have a problem with my things being moved.  I have a problem when it doesn't make sense to me.  I'll accept that the mountain is a 'place'...fine.  but the airplane wing is not 'nature'...

New stuff will come sometime this weekend.  I have some things I've only recently put on the computer which need a home here!

Also...wtf.  I know I haven't been browsing through my own gallery recently, but when on earth did ads start appearing inside actual galleries?  The last time I checked my own unsubscribed gallery, there wasn't a giant Vonage ad taking up the place of 4 deviations in the corner...is that really necessary?  really?  :no:

ps - my stock was used in one of today's DD's..yay! I honestly don't know where exactly, but that's alright :giggle:  That's the second DD to use my place/object stock :)  
Next step...get my model stock into a DD and then to get my art DD'ed.  :lmao: ...yeah, not likely, but a girl can dream, yes?
I've finally gotten through all the notes/comments y'all have left with using my stock.  I will now (later today) begin submitting the new pictures...those taken before and during camp.  there aren't as many as I'd planned, but there are still quite a few.

does anyone know (with comments in the message centre) if there's a way to...eh...well here's an example of what I mean...
I had over 60 comments, but could only see the most recent 25.  Since I wanted to work my way from oldest to newest, I wanted to go to the next set of 25...but I didn't have that option.  I had to get through and delete more recent comments before older ones would move up the line enough for me to see...  is that just the way things are or did I miss something?

Omg people...stock use much?  :faint:

Okay...I'll begin going through and faving/commenting tomorrow probably.  And those few who have asked permission for prints (except when the subject is myself, that's fine and no need to ask) I'll get back to you as well...also, those of you looking for specific pictures and unable to find them.  

Pictures from the summer will be up sometime in the next week...

Thank you all for using my stock....and for leaving comments/notes!  Not too many left notes on the front page...thanks!

I'll be gone this summer.  There will be no new stock between early June and mid-August.  However, when I get back there will be a FLOOD.  I'm going to camp to work, so I'll have all sorts of lovely nature shots, as well as cabins, bugs, birds, tents, boats and so on.
:nod:
In the meantime, however, I do still have some images to submit that have been taken already and I might take a few before I leave.

In other news...
If you use my stock...DO SOMETHING with it.  Don't just change the damn colors.  If a flower picture is pink, don't change it to orange and say 'look at my beautiful work!'  ..cause that's just...no.  Somebody took my Eiffel tower stock, upped the saturation, added a border and called it manipulated.  Well...uh..no. Please, guys...

On a happier note...I'm glad y'all like the gargoyle/Notre Dame stock so much :)

I realized I've been submitting stock with the instructions to read my journal for the rules...but my last journal didn't have rules in it!  ^^;  heh...

Anywho...there's a CONTEST/competition over at my other account WolfcatStock with the theme of Emotion.  It ends on March 13th...you still have plenty of time to enter if you like!

Well... I was supposed to go to the arboretum today, but I want snow on the ground, not snow in my face, so I'm gonna wait till tomorrow when there isn't a snow storm  o.O  ...it grounded my dad's flight today as well.  *pokes snow*  At least I'm guaranteed pretty snowy pics when I get there.

I have FINALLY submitted all my pictures from overseas, all my pictures from AZ, and all the pictures I've taken since I've been back in MN.  :faint:
I'm gonna try to get to the arboretum when I get back home for Feb break so I can get snowy versions of all those forest pictures I took over the summer :D
I'm gonna freeze my ass off doing it, but I'm okay with that as long as I get hot chocolate afterwards...I work cheap.  :giggle:

If you're going to use my stock... DO SOMETHING TO IT.
Don't just change the saturation and/or contrast or whatever.  
Seriously...what the who?

There was an absolutely gorgeous sunset today.  Every direction I looked was something fantastic.  But I was driving.  And my camera was in my purse on the floor.  And I never hit a red light.  How often do you hope to hit a red light so you can snap a pic out the window, eh?
I tried to turn onto a less busy street so I could pull off and take a picture, but it didn't happen...too many people going 20mph over the speedlimit to allow me to easily pull off.  And then I got lost.  Because I don't know how to get anywhere from anywhere in AZ.  Just to the mall and back.  So taking myself off my normal rout got me totally turned around.  It was pitch black out when I finally made it back home...with directional help over the phone.
But OMG I soooo wanted pictures of that sunset!  It's my last day here and I won't be here for the next sunset...it makes me sad...it was so pretty...I wanted to share it with y'all...:(

...because it's 6:30am and I haven't been able to get to sleep yet (I blame waking up in the afternoon), I'd like to do something OTHER than focus on the bad things, and I have like 100 more photos for y'all... And so... STOCK!  YAY!
be excited.  I know I am.  .... yeah.
Pardon whatever tone you get from this entry and take no offence.  I'm just in a weird mood.  Be assured I still *heart* you all :)


=edit=
and now at 8:45am I guess I'll try to sleep  o.O

Happy new year, y'all.  

I'm feeling terribly dull at the moment at nearly 3:30 in the morning, and fel I should do something productive.  However, instead of doing the manipulation I must finish soon, I'm going to flood you all with place/object stock.  maybe even finish off the pictures from Bath.  Please don't hate me for the flood.  :innocent:

edit:  For those who are sick of thi journal...sorry.  But I really would like at least four "votes" on this topic.  really...two votes (because that's what I've got right now) doesn't tell me much and my own doesn't count.  I know not everyone who watches me watches the journal, but if you do and you read this...please throw in your two cents...?

I do this stock thing for you guys so...
I'm asking Your Opinions here...
In submitting things now there's an option that I'm wondering about your opinions on...
Should I...(since I can't make a poll without a sub)
a) keep the full-view size at the original resolution and make the original size available for download
b) make the fullview size 1024pixels wide and make the original resolution available for download
c) other...?

what would YOU like most?

----

And now the question...
Has anybody seen in their watch, any new pictures popping up from me after the recent flower ones? Because I submitted at least four new pictures today and I don't see them in my gallery...

Update
I've got loads and loads and loads of new pictures to put into this account.  Expect 4-12 new pictures a day starting tonight for a while.  :D  There's like 11 pictures from Stonehenge, but I might not post them all when it comes to it.  But sorry for the repetition anyway.  :)
