today’s break sketch, to tired to be creative so I sketched one of my Flight Rising dragons
Full of glaring mistakes, but I love how his face turned out. :D
Hes a super pretty dragon, but he still need a name. any ideas?
Commission for the talented Belle for an elder scrolls themed tattoo for her OC.
the figure paint is hers, line-work is mine, and stylistic elements have been referenced from dragon-born.
If you want to see the full reference sheet for this OC, go check out Belles work, its sure to show up on her tumblr soon.
Remember that Netherdrake I posted WIP pics of long ago? Well I did finish him, I just failed to take pictures, moved countries, then failed to take pictures some more.
Finally got him to a photo shoot at my favourite beach. Better late then never!
I had to include the shadow picture, its my favourite picture as it shows how dead on the head silhouette is and I’m foolishly proud of that.
Its… just…. the cute… omgthe cute
I figured it was fairly similar, but thanks for the clarification. Law is an intimidating and confusing subject, so its easy to think its all harder than it has to be.
Sign and date your work guys, and post it to a reliable third party site somewhere that logs the post date, and is likely to be up for years. It wont stop theft, but if you are ever going to take action it will give you a more solid platform to stand on.
What do you mean how did they get away with it?
History isn’t one straight line progressing towards a liberal society.
Look how much Americans attitudes have changed between 1980 and today. 1980 was the first time most very religious people voted, they abstained before that at the behest of their churches. Now they dictate policy at every election.
In my family photo album there are pictures from the 20s of a woman called ‘uncle bob’. She dressed in men’s clothing, and had a ‘companion’. This was a rough industrial town, they were working class, nobody cared. It was her business.
This is why politics is important - the moment you think everything is better today than it was in the past, you let other people take control of the direction society goes in - with you sitting back presuming we’re going forwards.
reblogging for the commentary
Hanging around a lot of history nerds its surprising how often this comes up. Modern representations of many classical periods have a very modern and binary perception of historical gender politics, when gender politics have actually been incredibly diverse. Just offhand, the Romans seeing strict hetro or homosexuality as an odd perversion, and gender superiority equated not to who was doing who, but who was on top, Norse cultures that separated goods into traditionally female and male possessions, believed that land and houses were a traditionally female possession, and that a woman was perfectly within her legal rights to lock her husband out of her home if he was not pulling his weight. Even in the medieval era, in much of Europe a lady of the house was very often manager of the estate, the medieval equivalent of a small business partner.
And these are only the areas of history I have dabbled in, I barely know squat about most of aisia and africa. Gender politics have existed for a long time, and lets face it woman have gotten the short and broken end of the stick through most of it, but its only really in the more modern eras of mass communication that gender roles have been so homogenized. girl=pink skirt, boy = blue pants really only applies to a very tiny very recent portion of human history, so its fascinating that we (myself included) are so suprised when history deviates from it.
Except that its a photomanip
XD fair enough. dam, I should have spotted that, and save my factual rants for non photomanips. still, i stand by my comments ^.^
Guys, don’t be rude about the hot topic and deviant art issue. Some people are very concerned about these issues and its irritating to see tags like “wow what ignorance”, “you guys are stupid for believing this”. In all honesty I knew about DA’s fair system when it comes to art sharing, but I was…
Actually, it does not have to cost you a thing. Australian copyright law declares that copyright belongs to the first person to publish the work. As long as you put a little c on it, your name and the date when you publish it online, you own it, no money involved. I cant speak for other countries, but countries like the USA respect international copyright, and I would be surprised if their laws were not similar. If you are starting to make a name for yourself, and are worried about theft, I realy suggest looking into your local laws.
Yes there are services that you can pay to view and stamp your works, making it extra easy and irrefutable to legally prove in a court. but, its not necessarily. Copyrighting work is free, and its an inherent rite to all people who publish works. Just make sure you sign your work, and add the (c) and the year. That’s it.
The hard bits are, making sure your publishing it somewhere reliable (and for the record, DA is reasonably reputable in this regard) and catching people in the act, and raising charges against them. That’s why most infractions get off scot free, the artists cannot afford to press charges.
