Newest Deviations

If you don't know what I'm talking about, click that thing over there to read the previous post: apple303.deviantart.com/journa…

Alright, so in case you were wondering, as it's been nearly 4 months since my last journal and I haven't posted much in the way of Deviations since, I am still going at this and I'm working on picking up the pace. As the good Steve Roland once said:

"The only good race pace is suicide pace, and today looks like a good day to die." 

Applying that to this, the only good learning pace for me right now is indeed the suicide pace. So asking again, if anyone's able to help me learn Blender, I'd be very thankful. Moving on; I'm starting to compile a list of all the costs I'm going to be incurring for this project and it's already well over 400 dollars and rising. I need to buy a program, I need to either upgrade or replace my computer, etc. and I've got a total of 7 dollars that I could put towards that right now, which isn't even a little bit of a dent. (No, I'm not asking for donations, but I certainly wouldn't turn them away if you're offering) But I'm learning pretty well I think. I've been really busy with life and stuff, so it's getting harder to have the time and energy to learn but I know it's only going to get more hectic in the coming months, so I'm going to try my best to bunker down and get this shit done. So, since I'm having such trouble finding a job, after I work out some stuff with my Paypal, I'm going to be offering commissions for my line drawings, since that seems to be what interests people the most out of the few things I can draw. 

The commissions would probably be around 5-10 dollars, depending on the complexity you're asking and a few other things, I'll give more detail on the pricing when I actually work through and get it set up. After I get better at the modeling aspect of what I'm doing, I might also be willing to do commissions for those as well (though that would be much more expensive) but that's a bit further than my capabilities right now. I don't have a premium account, so I can't create a poll, but I'll leave some examples of what I'd be able to draw down below, so if you think you might be interested in paying 5-10 dollars for one, let me know in the comments so I can see how likely it is that this will even be a worthwhile endeavor. 

I know I don't have many active watchers (do in no small part to my infrequent posts) but for those of you that are active and actually see this journal, I've got real high hopes for the future. This project is more than ambitious but I believe that with a lot more learning and the help of the others already enlisted to participate in the project, I think it really can be a reality in the coming few years. As I get closer to actually going live with it, I'll release more details, but know for now that it's a 3D animated Sci-fi/Fantasy series that would either be shown on Youtube, Vimeo or something similar. I'm shooting for an average 10-15 minutes per episode, roughly 7-10 main characters total, all voice acted by myself and the others I mentioned earlier and all of which are either designed or being designed right now. I'm writing the story myself and I've already done most of that. They're all good friends of mine and we're trying our best to really get this project going.


So before I start rambling and giving too much away, the gist of what I'm getting at here is this;

-I need to make money, badly, so I'll likely be offering commissions in the very near future if anyone would be willing to actually buy them.

-I need to learn Blender at a faster rate, so anyone who would actually want to help me learn should (if I haven't been talking to you already) totally shoot me a message, I try to be a friendly person so you don't have to worry about me biting your head off :p

-I'm really optimistic about this project, I think this is really an attainable goal and I'm going to do everything in my power to get it going.

As for the things I'd be drawing for commission if you guys are interested, here's some of the stuff I've made already that I'd be making for you:

Weird thing I like to draw 4 by Apple303
Weird thing I like to draw 10 by Apple303
Weird thing I like to draw 4 by Apple303
Weird thing I like to draw by Apple303
These are things I've been drawing for a very long time, they're the things I'm the most comfortable with the quality of out of all the things I can make and they're the ones people have been the most interested in, in the past. If you think you'd want something like that, let me know. I'd charge between 5-10 dollars, maybe a little more depending on the size and complexity you'd want. I'll provide more details on pricing if it looks like anyone would actually be interested in it.

As far as my Blender progress goes, here's a few things I've made and posted recently and you can view the rest here:apple303.deviantart.com/galler…

No material in my gallery may be reproduced, copied, edited, published, transmitted or uploaded in any way, anywhere, without my express permission.

Careful, my things may burn out your retinas. With AWESOME.

Or if you have fire resistant retinas, feel free to browse. :p

Should I appear to be rather negative or depressing, I apologize in advance. I'm a bit prone to that, but I'm working on it.

I enjoy drawing (badly*) on paper and with my computer. I also occasionally dabble in that writing thing. If you'd like to see one of those particular types of art, check my gallery page. I have them neatly organized into different folders: "I can draw?" (hand drawn) "I can use a computer?" (Computer stuff) "This is words bro" (poetry n such). Newly added is my "Learning 3D" folder, which contains all of the stuff I've made while learning 3D modeling/animating etc.

As I stated earlier though, go no further if your retinas are not fire resistant.

"We're not retreating! We're advancing in another direction!"

"Silence is golden, but duct tape is silver."

"I am my biggest secret."


Side note, anyone who wants to throw some points my way can do so here: apple303.deviantart.com/?givep…


It has recently come to my attention that some people have taken my things (pictures and poetry alike) to re-post them elsewhere. As it seems they may actually have been making money off of said things.

I will not say who it was, both to avoid the bullshit that that may cause and to avoid giving them any more attention. This isn't the first time this has happened either. I didn't think this would be such a problem but come on guys, don't steal my shit yo. It's not cool.

Something being on the internet does not make it free, nor does it grant you the right to take it, alter it or claim it to be your own. You can not alter or monetize anything I've made and if you're going to re-post it anywhere then you must also give me the credit I deserve with a link back to my profile here (apple303.deviantart.com), you did not make it and I expect you to have the decency to say so. I promise you, if you really like any of the stuff I make, you can put the effort in and learn to do it yourself, probably better. Don't take credit for mine or alter mine, that's just not right.

I don't even think my stuff is that good but if this continues, I'm going to close down this account. People seeing what I've made is not worth having my shit stolen. If you see anything of mine elsewhere, please LET ME KNOW. Thank you.

*I'm doing a bit of reformatting and redecorating on my profile in light of my past depressive tendencies, theft of my art and near-future aspirations, so if anything seems inconsistent, point it out to me so I can update it.*
