Now that I am not a ^CV anymore, and considering I am coming up on 9 years here on dA, I decided to look through my favorites folder and see who was the first person who's artwork I faved.  As of right now I have 20520 artworks faved.
So the first person that I faved, was of all people, Mr-Frenzy...  Odyssey Of Light W. Edition by *Mr-Frenzy :iconmr-frenzy:
Odyssey Of Light W. Edition by Mr-Frenzy back in June of 2004..
So who was your "First Fave"????





The Tick is coming to steal my hat "^" and replace it with a " ' " tick. What does that mean? It means that today is going to be my last day as a ^CV or Gallery Moderator as they used to be called.
I have had a blast taking care of Wallpapers and the Space and Scifi galleries, and hopefully I can do it again in the future.
Meanwhile I get to kick back and be a normal deviant....hmmm sounds like an oxymoron doesn't it?
So don't send me suggestions for Daily Deviations anymore, those will go to the new Space and Scifi Art ^CV as soon as they are announced.

Gee my journal sure does look empty...... I think I will be needing a NEW Journal skin so if anyone has any suggestions or wants to make me a new one (Space/Scifi oriented) let me know. Reasonable remuneration for anyone that wants to create a new one for me.. I also need a way to display my Commercially Used artwork so that it looks professional and  perhaps in groups relating it to Book Covers, CDs, Merchandise, TV, Movies etc...if you have any ideas send them my way...

It has been great and I want to THANK all of the wonderful people that have sent me suggestions overs the last 15 months for Daily Deviations. I could not have done it without you.
BIG KISSES AND HUGS TO ALL

:bulletred:E-mail me: Ali Ries:bulletred:

Well Science Fiction and Space art is going strong and I find more artworks than I will ever be able to give Daily Deviations to.
On my front page you can find a slideshow containing all of the wonderful artworks that have received D.D.'s over the last few months. I found that displaying them that way was easier and gave everyone a second chance at being viewed regardless of when they received them. I hope you agree and go and looks at all of that wonderful art.

I want to thank all of the great deviants that suggest artworks, I couldn't do it without them.


Send me suggestions for Digital Art or Traditional Art that is featured in the Space/Science Fiction (SciFi) galleries. Actually ANY gallery that has something that looks like Space or Scifi I will look at and see if I can give it a D.D.!!
The same rules apply to giving Daily Deviations to these categories as they did for Wallpapers. If you are not familiar with the Rules, then read below and you will find spelled out what I look for in a D.D. suggestion.



:bulletgreen: Send your suggestions to me ^casperium in a note with  suggestions. 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 help me 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.

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 dust bunnies get a chance at shining.

Year in Retrospect

Sat Dec 24, 2011, 3:46 PM


November of last year I finally got to become a ^GM/^CV Community Volunteer as they are called now.  I was really jazzed that I finally could give DD's and write articles and do a lot of things for the Wallpaper Galleries that I always wanted to do.
     But a month later right before Christmas I found out that my only sister had Lung Cancer, putting a damper on the Wallpaper things I wanted to do. After all the years of waiting to be one it had to happen now, right when I was going to have to be away for months on end. Of course I wasn't complaining too much, after all my sister got the bum rap of having Cancer. In January I went down to Florida to live with my sister so I could help her get through Chemo and Radiation and all that entailed. While I was down there my father-in-law suffered a fatal heart attack AND a few weeks later my cat had to be put to sleep. Shit was happening left and right and amongst all of the doodoo a nice flower of positive grew, I got a contract from Universal for artwork for a TV show and from a group in the UK for artwork for a movie short about, of all things, a kid dealing with his mother's cancer..........sigh!
      Well things started looking up for my sister, although hairless, chemo was not bad and radiation quick and easy. So I pack up and come back home in May now that she was almost finished and doing good.
      Summer comes and PET scans reveal no growth, nor shrinkage in her cancer, life expectancy jumped from 18 months to perhaps 3-4 years. Next scan in 8 weeks (mid Sept). Day before she was supposed to have the scan she went to her doctor and started shaking like crazy, off to the ER and an MRI and Pet scan later showed that her cancer had spread to her brain and spine and hips. It was like she had a stroke half of her body was not responding well to movement. A phone call and 2 days later I am back in Florida, and with a diagnoses of perhaps 6 months, even with radiation. 6 months turned into not making it til Christmas, and 8 weeks later into a few weeks, to a few days to 12 hours later she was gone. Nov 20th she passed away.
During all of this I tried to do my best for the Wallpaper galleries, and for the deviants that posted there. It got to be too much, and in October and I transferred over to Space and SciFi galleries and left the Wallpaper in someone else capable hands.
December came and I finally got to come home, driving across the country with my husband and got back home a week ago. Now for the craziness of Christmas shopping and trying to get all of that done. Thank God for my daughter who did most of it while I was in Florida and for my husband who supported me all the way although it meant me away from home for over 8 months of this year.
I couldn't have done it either without the support and help of all of the deviants, admins  and other ^CV's here who sent me suggestions and sent me words of encouragement and prayers.
To those that sent me Christmas cards, while I haven't been able to reciprocate in sending you one back, please know that they brightened my day and made me feel loved and cherished.
So Thank you, all of you, who helped me through this year. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and have a Fantastic New Year to all of you. You have made this year more bearable.
Ali

:bulletred:E-mail me: Ali Ries:bulletred:

Well after being on the road for 6 days I am finally home.
Five nights of hotels and traffic and I am glad to sleep in my own bed tonight. First time in 3 months.
We stayed in Lafayette, LA., Sonora, TX., Casa Grande, AZ., Stockton, CA., and Canyonville, OR..
Anyway I am happy to be home.. Give me a few days to get back to normal. :)

Well starting today I am the ^CV for Space and SciFi taking over from Voyager212 :iconmacrebisz:who made us all proud with his quality selections for D.D.'s in that category. I hope I can follow in his shoes and make him proud too.

So from now on send me suggestions for Digital Art or Traditional Art that is featured in the Space/Science Fiction (SciFi) galleries.
The same rules apply to giving Daily Deviations to these categories as they did for Wallpapers. If you are not familiar with the Rules, then read below and you will find spelled out what I look for in a D.D. suggestion.

For the time being until a new Wallpaper ^CV is chosen you can still send me suggestions for Wallpapers too. Once the new ^CV is chosen for that category I will announce it  and send them the suggestions I have filed away. Just remember that every ^CV has their own views on what they think is worthy of a Daily Deviation, and the suggestions sent to me may not be their choices.


: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 help me 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.

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.

I can't believe that November is over. Where has the year gone.
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.

Animals and Funny ones:

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.

Ali
