I was privileged this month with becoming a GM for Wallpapers.
It took me a bit to learn the ropes, and I am still learning, so I did not give as many D.D.'s as I would have liked.
But I hope that the ones I D.D.'d made everyone happy. I know they made me happy. lol

Christmas Wallpaper Extravaganza! Part II


Well it is getting towards that time of year when we decorate the house with colorful lights, and a myriad of Frosty and Santa decorations, both inside and out. We put up the trees and , light up the fireplace and get ready for the big day. But first we need to decorate our monitors. After all, we need all of the Christmas spirit we can get while sitting at our desks and shopping online…. Lol

To that end, I have raided every category in the Wallpaper Gallery for walls of Christmas Past and Christmas present, and found some beauties.
We have something for everyone!! From Classic to Funny.

3D Wallapers 50 and Under

As you all know by now, and if you don't then HOWDY! I am Ali aka ^Casperium :iconcasperium: and I am now Co-Moderator, along with ^vsconcepts :iconvsconcepts:, for the

Wallpaper Gallery.

In this my first news article I want to Feature some lesser know and IMHO under-appreciated Wallpapers from the 3D section.

But first, lets talk about What is 3D, and What should go into that gallery.
If you look at what the definition is for that particular section you will see:
Gallery Info: 3 Dimensional
Wallpapers of 3D art that clearly depicts all three X,Y,Z-axes used, created with 3D software like Maya, 3Ds Max, and Poser.

You get an idea of the myriad of programs out there that can accomplish this, some of the newer ones being DazStudio, Blender, Carrara, C4D, and oldies like Bryce and Vue. I have

noticed 3 distinct types of 3d wallpapers in this group:

1)  3D programs like those mentioned above give you a feeling of being able to reach inside the picture and handle the objects within. And renders from these programs on their own

make marvelous and complex images that can grace your monitors.
Also combining renders from some of the 3d programs and making layers in Photoshop from them and combining them with PS layers of brushes...etc.

2)  But this can also be accomplished in Photoshop (or similar program)  using all sorts of geometrical brushes, line arts, embossing or beveling, using layers and shadows. Adding

textures and effects from different plugins help too. Even fonts. Altogether they bring forth an incredible 3d effect that parallels the beauty found in the 3d programs.

3) And probably a more controversial one, is the creation made from using premade models in Poser and DazStudio, Bryce, Vue, Carrara etc and adding a background.  Some look

at this as photomanipulation, but you are using 3D Models as the primary focus of the artwork.

In this article I am going to feature the first 2 types: 3d program and Photoshop 3d, and save for another article the Wallpaper scenes created using other types of models.

Personally I am a sucker for glass-like renders from 3d programs, so forgive me if I indulge myself a bit in my first article. For my next article on 3D Wallpapers using Poser, Bryce

etc. scenes and pre-models or models made and rendered in scenes, I want you the reader to send me your suggestions in your comments to this article.
I am a firm believer in self-promotion, but if you suggest yourself, please also include a suggestion for someone else too. :)

My little hat and big shoes to fill...

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 19, 2010, 6:41 PM
New Hat



Hey everyone;
In case you haven't noticed I got me a new hat today. It is really pretty and shiny and blocks out all alien rays that try to control me,,,,,,,, no wait,, that was the other hat I had....this one says I can be a Co-Gallery Moderator for the Wallpaper Gallery. lol
The PTB's and ^vsconcept :iconvsconcepts: have decided to give me a chance to wreak havoc in the Wallpaper Gallery. Real big shoes to fill there. I hope I won't let them or dA down. I look forward to having a lot of fun! :)

I am still reeling from this, as you can see and will be revamping my journal skin to add all of the goodies that GM's have at their disposal to help all of you out.

I will set out a few things that I wish to do over the next year in the next few days.
Meanwhile you can send me your D.D. suggestions, but please follow these few rules:

:bulletblue: Since I am Co-Moderator for the time with ^vsconcepts, please send your suggestions to ONLY ONE OF US! Please do not send it to both of us, as this can cause overlapping and confusion, and might result in your suggestion getting lost.

:bulletblue: Please only send me suggestions from the Customization>Wallpaper Galleries only. Those are the only ones I can feature.

:bulletgreen: Send your suggestions to me ^casperium in a note with 1 to 2 suggestions max for the time being. Also, please add thumbs instead of links.  Please add a brief sentence as to why you think this artwork deserves a D.D. This is not mandatory, but it does helpe make decisions.

:bulletblue: You may suggest yourself. I believe in self promotion! :)

:bulletred: Don't suggest pieces from artists who have received a DD in the past 3 months.

:bulletblue: I will try to make sure that ALL sub-categories of the Customization>Wallpaper galleries get represented in the D.D. during the course of my year as GM. :)
And I will try to make sure that not only recent deviations get a chance, but that older ones that lie forgotten and covered by dustbunnies get a chance at shining.

In the future I am planning on creating a series of news articles about Wallpapers. If you have suggestions of things you want to see in an article let me know.

I know I will eventually change this around and re-word and re-structure this journal, so if you see it again, it will be an updated version.
As always I am here for you guys. Just note me.

New Group for Commercial Artists!

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 11, 2010, 7:18 PM
Commercial Artists Group



I have created a new Group for Promoting Artists that want to sell their artwork commercially. Please check it out and become a member, even if you are not quite sure if you want your artwork promoted yet. :)

:iconcommercialartists:commercialartists.deviantart.c…
Commercial Artisans is a group dedicated to promoting artists and their artwork for commercial use, as in Advertising, Book Covers, CD Covers, Merchandise and other areas.

We want to offer a venue for the artist to display artwork they wish to make available for commercial use, and to share with others those that have already had their artwork used commercially.
All disciplines will be represented from the photographer, digital and traditional artist to the literary writer.
We want to network artists with potential customers, other artists, resources, and mentoring.
The Mission of this group is to make deviantArt a place where customers can come to find artwork that is the finest quality, while helping the artist get promoted.
If you have sold artwork or want to make yours available come promote yourself here.

Cometary Nebula Stock Daily Deviation!!

Amended Stock Rules v2.0 and 100K event!



I am fast approaching my 100K in page views!!!!  Woohoo! Only took me almost 6 years. But for the occasion, whoever gets me a Screenshot of the 100,000th page view will get a 6 month subscription from me! So keep a lookout for me and win a subscription. In the event more than one person captures it, the first one to note me with the screen capture pic will get the prize.



I know I have not been keeping up with giving my THANKS to all of you who Fave my artwork, but time is at such a premium these days, what with having 2 accounts and working as a photographer, and 2 grand babies, I end up overwhelmed. Plus a new dA quirk, when I do have time to sit and leave Thanks, after about 50 of them I get cut off from deviantart because they think I am spamming. Makes me have to wait a long time before I am allowed to comment again, and usually by that time I am busy and can't continue my comments.
  However I do make an effort to answer all comments left for me with at least a Thanks! So please know that I am very grateful and appreciate every Favorite and add to Collections that come my way, even if i can't say Thank You on your front page!!! :hug:



Amended Stock Rules v2.0




AMENDED STOCK RULES!
1) Apparently sometime recently, stock rules changed where you can no longer use another stock along with your own to create new stock. In the past this was allowed if you got permission from the other stocker, or if the gallery manager said it was OK,, I have recently had some of my stock removed as Art Theft because of this..so i will deleting any and all stock of mine that contains other peoples stock even if they gave me permission,, And I also rescind any permission I have given for others to do the same.


                      PRINT PERMISSION ON A PICTURE BY PICTURE BASIS
While I have been having problems with people not understanding the rules, instead of saying NO totally to printing, as it is not fair to those who do follow the rules, I am going to institute a picture by picture permission policy. In other words, BEFORE you can offer it up as a Print I want to see it first. Once I approve of it, then you can offer it up as a Print.
And if you are an artist who has used my stock before and made lots of prints and have followed the rules, let me know and I will look at what you have made and I might give you Blanket Permission for prints, so you don't need to ask every time.

Since quite a few people can't seem to get it through their heads what constitutes manipulation of an image for print purposes...i.e. If you want to make prints you must thoroughly manipulate it by mixing it will other stock or your own imagery, so that MY STOCK does not constitute the majority of the picture..You can't just add a circle or a unicorn and expect to make prints from it..
Examples of what I consider acceptable for Print Permission:
Otherland 2 by DrezdanyUnderwater Fairy. by gfxgurlnebula city by S-K-WLadies in Waiting by MichonWhen An Angel Is Called Home by Obsidian-Siren
as you can see my stock is NOT the focus of the picture, but aids in creating the overall image.

Examples of UNACCEPTABLE for Print Permission: ( these artists did NOT ask to make prints,they followed the rules. I show them as examples only of what is not printable)

                    NO OFFSITE USE OF MY NEBULA WITHOUT PRIOR PERMISSION
3) My nebulae are now off limits for putting on other websites unless you ask first and I approve it.. dA use ONLY> Do not upload it to another site and THEN tell me about it.
You may still use my fantasy scenes if you manipulated them off of dA for Ponybox and other horse sims without asking first.
Any other use of my stock you MUST ASK FIRST before posting outside of dA.

4) You must note me and send me a link to the manipulated images you make.

I still want to provide stock for you to use here on dA, but because of the number of ungrateful people who think that all of my hard work means nothing, and that they should be able to do what they want when they want with my stock, and in many cases not even FAVE it, I tell you,you have ruined it for everyone else. I will also no longer be posting extremely large sizes of my artwork. It will be no larger than 1600x1200.
I am sorry to have to do this, but I am tired of the whining and complaining.

Any one complaining and whining about my rules, or who fail to follow the rules will be BANNED from both of my accounts.


5)You may use my stock in any manipulation. You do NOT need to ask me first. If it is in the STOCK CATEGORY then it is STOCK and may be used by you.....................With only a few exceptions:

NO PORN, sexploitation, or pics depicting cruel and otherwise socially, morally reprehensible acts. You must FAVE the Stock if you download it! Especially since I will be Faving your manipulation in return.

You MUST CREDIT ME! A link to my stock account is all I ask along with Moonchilde-Stock. This should appear in your artist's comments box.

Make sure that you know which of my stock are RESTRICTED and UNRESTRICTED... as most of my rules ONLY apply to Restricted Stock.


                     COMMERCIAL USE
6)COMMERCIAL USE: You MUST NOTE ME and tell me what project you plan to use it in FIRST. In some cases I might charge for usage, and in others it may be free depending on the stock and the project it is used for.......

Restricted and Unrestricted Stock Use:

I have now organized my Stock into separate folders pertaining to the types of stock,i.e. Nebulae and Scifi, Fractals, etc. This stock is Restricted to the uses stated in my Journal ONLY. I have also added a new category called Unrestricted Stock which contains a little bit of everything and can be used personally and commercially as per the Unrestricted policy located on dA.
What is Unrestricted Stock:
Unrestricted stock can be used for both personal and commercial projects, but it cannot be redistributed as stock. You are not required to obtain permission prior to using the stock off site or in DA prints. The only requirements are that the stock provider be notified and credited.

A list of stockers that have Unrestricted Stock Galleries and Stock Folder can be found here: lawrencededark.deviantart.com/…



7.Copyright rules are below. (This applies to any and all stock I have, restricted and unrestricted)


If English is not your language and you have difficulty understanding these rules, please note me with your question and I will try to explain it in a simpler way. I do know Spanish, so I can at least explain it to you in your language.( Hablo español, así que puedo explicarles en ese idioma si se necesita)
           
COMMERCIAL USE: You MUST NOTE ME and tell me what project you plan to use it in FIRST. In some cases I might charge for usage, and in others it may be free depending on the stock and the project it is used for.......



               GIVE CREDIT!!!!!!!

    Please remember to give CREDIT to the Stock artists. I
have noticed several people uploading pictures using stock,
mine included, and have not given credit. It is only right
to acknowledge your sources and most of us require it in
order to use our stock.
   Also NOTE me when you use it with a LINK to the
artwork you have submitted. I do not have time to go
through your gallery looking for the picture. I will always
FAVE any artwork that uses my Stock, but I need a link
to it in order to do that.


        COPYRIGHT VIOLATIONS!!!!!!!

    Please do not VIOLATE COPYRIGHTS!!!! If you use my
stock and then put images you got off of the internet
that are not yours, not only will I not fave it, but I will
report the violation. Let me explain:
A company owns the
copyright to any and all logos, photos, characters etc
that are associated with its product. So unless you get
permission directly from that company to use their
copyrighted images, logos etc then you can not use
them and are in violation of copyright laws. Same
applies to any images of them that you find on the
internet, just because someone posted them does not
make it legal to use them. Same with screen captures
from TV. Even if you give the company credit, it is not
alright, because they have not given you permission to
use them.
It would be like you creating a fantastic piece of artwork
or a character from scratch, totally awesome... and then
people start using it to make their own things without
ever asking you..or saying that it should be OK since
they gave you credit, or that they saw another site
using it, so why can't they... Too many times people
assume that if they give credit to the company that that
is OK and covering the bases. but it is not....It is still a Copyright violation!
I hope this explains it a little better... :)
and why I will REPORT you and not Fave your work.

                                Cometary Nebulae  THIS IS NO LONGER STOCK by Moonchilde-Stock
WOW!!!!! Am I blessed or what! Cometary Nebula Stock on my Moonchilde-Stock account moonchilde-stock.deviantart.co… received a Daily Deviation!!!! Thank you Psy-XX and Hanratty Stock for the tremendous honor!




Serenity Firefly Universe by Moonchilde-Stock
Who says that deviants get no breaks. I can finally speak of my break now. Geoff Mandel has created a wonderful 2 sided Map of the Verse of Serenity/Firefly, licensed merchandise. It is exquisite in it's details and is a big hit this weekend at the Serenity Con in Burbank, Ca. So why am I jazzed about it, (besides being an avid Serenity/Firefly fan)?? Three of my nebulae grace the front of this artwork, forming the background. It was a fantastic honor to be asked to provide the backdrop artwork. And now that it is available for sale I am going to promote it on both of my accounts.
If you liked this show and movie and want to buy it check it out here at Quantum Mechanix store.quantummechanix.com/Comp… I also hear they might be making a new RGP game version of Firefly too.
Woohoooo I am jazzed!!! Can you tell? lol

I know I have been absent a lot lately, and haven't been posting too many pics or stock, but I have been in spring cleaning mode...
Both on the computer and the house. I have 2 computers with a total of close to 700 Gigabytes of harddrive and they are 3/4 full, and I  also have tons of cds that i am trying to consolidate on to DVD's and get rid of the stuff i no longer use or want, a daunting task that i have slowly been working on... plus I am trying to remodel my house little by little...ARGH!!!! I need either clones of myself or for someone to leave me a lot of money so I can just buy a new house...lol..
Anyway, I am still here, and slowly but surely getting to all of the hundreds of pics that i need to view and comments that i need to answer, so please be patient with me...
