Life

Wed Jan 24, 2007, 8:34 PM
Life is just like a game where the objectives are pretty clear, but the way to attain them is at times confusing and rules don't often quite make sense.

Lessons of interest:
If you don't give anything you won't be noticed, and if you give too much - eventually your gifts will become meaningless to the receiver and will be worth nothing.

Unlike me, a lot of people don't know what they want out of life, or how to get it, or their purpose, or their path.

Life moves as fast as you live it.... In fact, I've nearly mastered manipulation of my chrono-storm.
To accelerate time, simply try to hang on to it as hard as you can.
(cherish a given moment as much as possible)

Photographic adventures

Sat Oct 14, 2006, 10:16 PM
...of my numerous trips around Toronto and other places with my friends/photographers/models.

Are now saved for all eternity in this account:
www.alexius.deviantart.com

Go visit it... Lots of stuff coming into it.

:iconalexius: :iconalexius: :iconalexius::iconalexius: :iconalexius:

That old account had always haunted me, but now it just might be put into some sort of use... if I don't snap soon due to the lack of print account in that account.

Soon enough I'll probably go insane from the "double-account"/split personality madness.

BLAAAAH or the general V5 complains

Wed Aug 30, 2006, 7:56 AM


Something horribly wrong with V5 DA.

Check your pageviews people.
Everyone's daily pageviews dropped way down by half ever since August 25th.

Front page is broken to hell. Since when is a piece with 1 fav popular, just because it's in some silly category like "avatars" or "desktops".

My Chronoscape story got corrupt and cut off.
The book cover image isn't even showing anymore. I'm gonna have to re-upload it as art now.

Whenever I click on something, comments get blatantly cut off until I reload...
and I'm using Firefox!

hopefully they'll fix all this before I go insane and start killing people with spoons...

copyright infringement -resolving

Mon Aug 14, 2006, 6:56 AM
update-

I've finally got through via email to the artist responsible for the theft of my artwork
...and we're discussing terms.

He's already sincerely apologized for the theft.
I'm happy to have finally gotten through to the right person, via multitudes of websites.

Thank you everybody, for first of all noticing the theft, being witnesses and helping me find him!

Hello my dear art colleagues,

Today I've been notified by my kind fan :iconairage:

That the following concert in Hamburg, Germany has hired an unknown designer that stole my artwork for their fliers!

The flier:

www.breakbeatz.de/phpBB/img/fl…

Obviously ripped off my artwork "Enter the Inferno"
www.deviantart.com/deviation/3…

UPDATE: this case has been resolved. The concert organizers and the designer in question has issued an apology and compensated me for the work.

Illustration Rates!

Thu Aug 3, 2006, 9:10 AM
I'm assembling a grand booklet of general illustration prices that all artists could view and follow, to help them out with the sale of their artworks.
I shall have to mention all mediums and all types of illustrations and their current market value.
Sure, there's some books that help with that, but screw buying books. We're all starving artists.
Lets get something together that helps everybody out with the sale of their artworks!
Mention any artwork that you've done and what you've charged the client for it!

So far my search turned out various websites that help out with illustration prices/rates/ideas (examples of what various artist charge for creation of their art):
www.freelancers.com/webaffil/p…
www.io.com/unigames/rates.html
www.junkertoons.com/books.htm
www.illustratorsireland.com/ar…
www.buttonzup.com/rates.htm
www.vegaswebgraphics.com/prici…
adamstrange.com/website-6.0/RA…

However there's still a lot to decide on, such as general comic book pagerates, selling artwork copyright, value of artist's experiece, and all sorts of other mediums.
If you know of any other such websites/usefull resources- post them! If you have any suggestions, post them too!

Heat wave

Mon Jul 17, 2006, 3:18 PM
A lovely heat wave of doom ate Toronto right up, with me at its downtown center. Weeee.
I don't have an air conditioner, and just waiting till everybody blows the city's power grid out again with theirs. That would be quite hilarious.
Who here's from Toronto? Anyone remember the last big country-wide power cascade?
Trying to invent new ways to stay cool. Sitting in a shirt soaked in cold water seems to work so far.
Anyone know of ways how to stay cool without eating power up with AC's?

Also, working on my sci-fi novel, and looking for publishers:
Read it here, if you haven't:

Tuna!

Tue Jun 20, 2006, 11:06 AM
Tired of corporate clients bulshitting me.

What the hell kind of crap is a nice, detailed illustration for 20 dollars?
and... "Oooo, la di da... you get recognition"
Recognition is worth nothing at the moment! I need to buy bread... and tuna!
I can't come to the store and tell them:
"Hello, I'm recognized, do you know me? Now give me free bread!"

thus, the world, according to the diluted mind of those that pay with recognition:




Give artists either a fair price 13-25 dollars an hour, or a percentage of the total profit!
I'm tired of listening to bullshit about eventual recognition or eventual payment in the years to come.

Artists, stop cheaping out! If somebody asks you to work for less than 10 dollars an hour, tell them to go draw it themselves! Stop lowering your own market price value.

Artists, always ask whom the copyright of the image belongs to, after its done!
Don't sell out the rights to your art for little profit!
Always demand to maintain the right to publish the image yourself!

Clarity

Mon Jun 19, 2006, 2:02 PM
Mood: the silver shade of gray
.
.
.
.

...and now I see with eyes unclouded

...and there is nothing I can do, to change what has occured.
And there's nothing I can do to help her or to help myself.
I thought that happiness could only be attained together.
How very wrong was I?
And this is my goodbye…
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Sometimes there's no action
Sometimes there's no cause
Sometimes there's no distinction
Between the why and because.

Sometimes the way is clear
Sometimes the path is lost
Sometimes the world is full of cheer
Sometimes too great is the cost

~

There once was a guy, that was lost.
Along the darkness and light he walked
Without purpose
Without cause
Without knowing what love is like,

Along came a girl and showed him the way.
And he fell in love, he gave her his world.
But she had to work for her family, aye.
But she had to support those she loved,
So she let him go
Yes she let him go
And he was broken inside, alas!
What else could one expect from such an action, thus?

Because he failed to understand
Because he failed and made out to pretend
That everything was
That everything is
That everything could be fixed and solved
That all could be aligned to perfection

But sometimes we just can't help ourselves,
But sometimes we just refuse to accept
When others help us,
To love and be happy
And to understand
The why and because,
The reason and cause
The action/reaction
That brings down the toll
We chose to forget all that we know
We chose to disband all that has passed
To burn all the bridges behind
To run away from it all
Just merely to exist
Just merely to dance
Between the horizons
Of darkness and light
Between the illusion and realities of life

Sometimes there's no choice
Sometimes there's no light
Sometimes there's no action
Upon which to decide
That one can see
Because the world has made one blind

Sometimes our fortunes turn
And one can walk in light
And just see the darkness
In an infernal plight

Sometimes the world is clear
And one walks in the dark
But all that one sees,
Are the stars everbright.

O' what am I to do?
What future awaits me?
Who am I destined to become?

Darkness

Thu Jun 15, 2006, 11:16 AM
My love fell from the sky into my arms and then left me for dead.




Metal shells for my unmoving eyes and weeds for my tied tongue, torn drums for broken ears.  
I've become the embodiment of a machine, unstoppable, fear-less and sharp. I see the world as a fake façade, a masquerade, a decoration of pretty colors, and a hollow illusion, through which I cannot break.
Last night I've died. And as I woke, I had no fear, because he, who is already dead, has no fear of death, no feeling of pain and no regrets.
I've stated to listen to blasting rock music to block out my dark thoughts of despair and confusion.
I drove 150 on the highway without fear.
I have become the embodiment of a soul-less man, frozen from the inside out, neither living nor dead.

I have gambled too much and lost. I gave her everything I've had.



Existence is without purpose...
Until I can find somebody else to give my love to.

100'000

Fri Mar 24, 2006, 10:39 AM
I raise mein glass (eyes glass with suspicion)... of milk...
in celebration of the 100'000 pageviews.



Special thanks goes out to all the people that made it happen.
I taketh a bow to all my most humble watchers!
Today I'm heading to Niagara to hopefully get more jolly photography or just art inspiration.
Here's to the next celebration date… of one million! Mwahahaha.


On a funny note some admin decided that Polaris wasn't real enough, and moved it to "photomanipulation". I'd like to beat him with a spoon, bag him and drag him to the place where I took the photo, and see what he says then.

I'm working on a Moby Dick novel illustration for university and I be requiring your most humble opinion on my idea, before I begin drawing it.
Anyway here it is (updated version):

Foreground-
The crazy captain Ahab standing in a small boat, with a few crewmen rowing. He holds the telescope, as suggested by :iconhorusrogue: Other crewmen hold harpoons.
Giant waves are thrashing the small wooden boat around.

Farther off in distance:
The storm is covering the entire ocean, stormy sky curves around the scene. The sun is barely visible through the clouds, and is letting a few rays fall onto the white whale.
The large Sail ship is burning in the background, splitting in two and sinking.

Whale is barely visible in the looking glass.

... anyhow, if you've read this crazy story called Moby Dick, tell me if the illustration will work well enough...
or maybe you have a more jolly idea? Feel free to throw it at me, then and I shall be much thankful.


UPDATE:
Initial drawing is completed. Gave the captain a looking glass, made it less "overused" view.
Still lots of things to draw. Bleh!
