Well, it looked like it was going to go viral, then the moron who uploaded the stock model informed me that she did not have permission to upload the photo. I had to delete the piece. :( Beware of using photos from this account: angie-c23.deviantart.com Apparently she just steals photos.

How incredibly stupid do you have to be upload photos you don't have permission to use? I just spent hours making this piece. I'M LIVID. Um, stockers, you're not allowed to STEAL PHOTOS FROM PEOPLE. And now you've cost me time, sweat and toil FOR NOTHING.

A friend of mine needs a graphic made for his business. He wants a series of different sorts of buildings, with a description of his business written on one of the buildings as if its an old painted sign. This is the perfect job for the great manippers here at dA.

My friend is an awesome, non-creepy person and pays generously. If any of you reading this are interested in getting in touch with him and making a bit of money, please let me know. Feel free to respond here or note me.

Thanks!

Unfroze by vacuumslayer

I forgot to thank Miss Aeirmid for featuring my DD. Thank you, my dear. You made my day and my week!

For whatever reason, May was a blessed month for print sales! I sold one or more of the following:

I can haz fame and fortune nao? ;)


A friend asked me to explain my process a bit more re:

Fight Club by vacuumslayer

Well, I got the idea from a couple of sources. 1.) The model. I think her messy/bruised appearance suggested a tussle. But instead of going dark, I thought it would be more fun and original to go humorous/whimsical.  2.) An incredible manipulation I saw awhile ago that featured a woman balancing on a telephone wire. I wanted to take that idea and do my own spin on it. So, there you have it: A very silly woman who picks fights with birds. And apparently loses. Hope this gives everybody a little more insight into how my manipulations come together. Although I have a pretty manic, throw things to the wall and see what sticks approach, so each piece is different. :D

Gah! Need help finding a piece of stock!

Hey, I won joint third in Magikstock's Fairy Tales contest. magikstock.deviantart.com/


Alas by vacuumslayer



Nice, huh? Yet I'm conflicted. One of the other winners made an entry that reminds me an awful lot of mine, down to some pretty esoteric details. elandria.deviantart.com/ I wouldn't think anything of it, except that this is the not the first time this particular person has...let's just say...done a variation on one of my pieces. I'm not quite sure what to do about this. I like to keep my existence here at dA pretty drama-free, so I'm thinking of doing nothing. I guess I would just request that if someone likes my stuff, please take inspiration, do a riff on it. But don't do almost an exact copy. That makes chubby kittens cry.
