Spring/Summer Commissions

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 15, 2014, 8:34 AM
Well several people have expressed interest in commissions... yet no one has come through on it...  LOL  But hey we'll try it again.

I will open four slots for commissions to be done between now and the start of summer.

Terms and prices:

What I will do:
~Nudity and "sensual" images
~Anthro, people, and animals
~Action scenes
~Blood and violence okay.

What I Won't  Do:
~Hentai, Porn, Bondage
~Slasher images (OVERT gore)
~Images of Copyrighted material. (I don't want to open that Pandora's box)

So far so good? 

Prices will be as follows: (All in US dollars)
Rough Sketch  $5/400pts - low detail/character concepts etc
Seduction by Tigershark06

Finished Sketches: $10/800pts Clean lines and shaded
Into Battle by Tigershark06

Inks: $20/1600pts Clean Digital lines on single color background

Redemption Cover WIP 2 by Tigershark06

Flats: $30/2,400pts Include lines and flat colors with no shading

Redemption-Cover-WIP-3 by Tigershark06

Full Digital:  $40/3,200pts Inks, Flats, and shading on simple background.
Finalized central image Redemption by Tigershark06

Detailed backgrounds Add $15
Each additional character  Add $10

I will accept payment by Paypal and Points. 

~Half of the payment is expected before the work begins - this is a good faith gesture. 

~Commissioners have the right to input minor design changes through the draft and inking process with no additional charge (Short of a full on redesign). 

~Once I start colors, the commission is fixed, and further revamps will come at additional cost.  This is also true for a full-out redesign, which will cost $10 for each additional hour spent recreating the character/image.

~At the end of the effort I will send/link a lo-res version of the image to the commissioner for final approval.  At this point remaining payment is expected.  (Remittance of the high res large file will not happen until payment is received)

If you are interested leave a comment here and we can arrange for it.

Please be ready to provide descriptions, references and anything else you think might help expedite the process.

Logically Designed Antrhos

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 14, 2014, 8:56 AM
This may come across as a sort or rant, but that is not the intention, just observation and curiosity.

I've been working on M&A for a while now trying to prepare it for a 2015 publishing date. My main character is Tigershark - a shark anthro. There was a lot of thought put into Tigershark's design over the years, from the minor aesthetic choices to ones that are medically and physiologically possible for such a mutation to be successful.

I'm very much into design choices and physical characteristics making some sort of scientific sense. And some times I see things that make me go: "hmmm, how could that logically work?" Such is the case with the placement of gills on an anthro character.

I have seen many gilled anthros in both art and film and TV and one of the design choices I could never quite fathom was placement of gills on the chest.

For a humanoid who still has lung tissue a chest gill design makes little to no sense to me. It would mean that water would need to be drawn into the lungs in order for the water to be seined through the gill tissue to extract oxygen. With the way lungs work, filling the alveoli with water would only cause problems. (IE Pneumonia)

Fish have evolved where the gills are just aft of the head and connected directly to the mouth. This allows for a bellows effect which draws water into the mouth and out the gills, passing water over the structures that pull oxygen directly from the water.

Logically - my head tells me the same should be true for an antrho with gills as well. I believe they should have placement either aft of the jawline or on the neck above the location of the epiglottis.

This would allow for the adaptation of the epiglottis to close off the lungs while gills are in use and not flood the lungs with water.

It just seems to me that a chest gilled anthro would have major health issues (unless the lungs weren't present, in which case it really wouldn't matter a whole lot - aside that it wouldn't be an efficient gas seining system because of distance between intake and outflow.) and might not survive for any real length of time.

That's my two cents worth - thanks for reading... moving on with my day.

I will be livestreaming an image for my daughter :icontopkicker26: (Which is the only piece of art I've done in more than two weeks.)  This will happen at about 5pm  Pacific.

If you would like to come keep me company for a while I would truly appreciate the company!

Tales From the Dead Zone

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 15, 2014, 11:59 AM
I've been saying off and on that I am going to be putting out a collection of short stories based in the Only Half universe.  After reviewing the file, I've begun to kick around the idea of offering the compilation sooner rather than later.

What I'm considering is offering the book this summer (say June or July) rather than waiting until October.

What do you think?  I will be putting up a poll to that effect.

At this point it would not be at all hard to get the book rolled out by summer.  The cover is completed, the edits done and the stories compiled in one novel.

This one would cost less to get a hold of too.  I can't quote exactly until I get the file set up, but it is only about 220 pages long, which is half of my previous offerings to date.

NE Way, please look for the poll and let me know what you think!

What's on My Writing Horizon

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 11, 2014, 5:04 PM
I'm republishing my Goodreads blog entry...because I probably have more followers here than there! LOL!

~~~~~~~

This entry is to let you know that I haven't stopped trying to publish or anything, I'm just taking a bit of a publishing hiatus.

On the Horizon:


Tales from the Dead Zone - Fall 2014?

If I do publish something this year (originally I had planned to take this entire year off and revise one of my first books), it will be a collection of short stories in the TOHS universe.  "Tales from the Deadzone: Vol 1" is tentatively scheduled to be published in October 2014.  I will let you know if that changes (Because I've been waffling some on how to handle it).

Gemutations: Mercenaries and Angels(2nd Edition) - April 2015

That's right - I mentioned one of my first books is in the process of a major revision?  Yup this is it. I am doing a major overhaul to how the story is told and leaving the plot intact.  One of the major things is that I'm changing the entire thing to third person. If there was one major complaint about the previous version it was the swaps between first and third person point of view.  So be expecting that out in print and Kindle come April 2015!

In the Beginning - Summer 2015

What? THREE books in 2015?  Why yes that is my goal...

The Prequel to "Forgotten Ties" should be ready to go by Spring 2015 and ready for public consumption.  Now that the secret is out, I can go in full into how the brothers got where we see them in Plague and FT.

TOHS: Endgame - Fall 2015

The third book in the series and the last part of the original TOHS story.  Cabal is back on the trail of his father and has many and varied adventures in the process.  Look for that in October or so!

Courtesy? Surely You Jest ('No thanks' for thanks)

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 5, 2013, 6:16 PM
You guys may remember this rant from me:  tigershark06.deviantart.com/jo…

Yeah I'm starting to run into it again.  People who have it in their journals or on their front page that they do not accept "Thank you"s for faves, llamas, etc.  This time because it's cluttering their front page and it annoys them. 

Wait...WHAT?  You're on a social media site...your showing appreciation for another's work, and then you're going to tell them not to thank you?  That's like not thanking the barista who fixes your coffee at Starbucks - Not thanking the guy who was kind enough to allow you ahead of him in line.

What kind of world is this turning into?  If it's an inconvenience for you to look at someone thanking you for your appreciation of their hard work get off DA for heaven's sake! 

For the most part no one is going to see your front page but brand new readers...and you...and people spinning through to thank you for something only to send it and find out you don't want it?  O_O it boggles me!

I see some people with some pretty splendid art and normally I find new people to follow by going to their front page thanking them and then looking through their gallery.  When I find someone who doesn't want courtesy they can kiss a WATCH goodbye - that's a bad attitude in my opinion. 

Way to isolate yourself from the world.

Yes, six days straight of fishing has made me very tired and quite irritable...sorry for the repeat rant...

Thanks for letting me vent again...:P

O...M...G Unsolicited Fan Art for the WIN!

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 26, 2012, 3:07 PM
I was trolling through my deviant watch stacks and I came across this:

Renate by JOEYDES

HO-LY- Shit!!

I have been watching :iconjoeydes: for years now, enamored from the start by his bold inking and coloring style.  He's always been communicative and appreciative of comments and critiques by his viewers.

To be thanked for my viewership in ART just blows me away...truly.

So Joey...you are the bomb...thank you for thinking of me and for thanking me in such an AWESOME way.

I will post the colors with credits for this as soon as I get them knocked out! ( think I may have found a new project to work on tonight besides that comic page...LOL)

If you haven't seen his other works you are missing out!  Swing by his profile and bask in his awesomeness!

Again Joey, thank you...you have made my entire week!

EDIT:  Yup, I couldn't NOT do this...

Don't Tell Me Not to be Courteous....

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 20, 2012, 9:37 AM
It's happened again...I'm running into people who tell me "Don't thank me for ________."

I've mentioned it before, but I'm going to say it again.  This attitude irritates me to NO END!

Don't tell me not to say Thank You for doing me a kindness.  I appreciate every Fave, Llama, and comment I get and I do my utmost to be sure the people who take that time KNOW IT.

Your time - when there are hundreds of THOUSANDS of deviations on this site to look at - is valuable.  That you thought it worthy of a fave, or a comment, or you like my profile well enough to give me a llama (even when you don't know me),  makes me excited, happy, worthy...

Then I go to your profile and you tell me essentially "I don't want to hear it..."

That's essentially adding "but" to the action.  If you don't know "but" means everything said before doesn't count - you're contradicting it - rescinding it.  Don't do that to me...it feels like an insult, like you've undermined the action as unimportant - of no consequence - that there's no meaning behind the action.

Probably not the intent right?  

So LET ME THANK YOU!

I was taught to say  thank you and please, and may I.  I grew up that way...

I will not stop that just because you say "don't" and don't come back and yell at me if I do...because you will not like my response....
