PADDLE DROIDS by ZaftigBunnyPress
PADDLE DROIDS
A definitely more risque drawing than I usually do. This was a commission from :iconfurrybound: . It features his character, Scarlett, on the right there, and my character, Sweet Buxom Penny. All characters are copyright their respective creators.

Oh, wait, nobody does. So why do they exist? Because there are people out there who have no problem taking other peoples art and posting it as their own.

Nobody HAS to post to dA. Painters and cartoonists and photographers and sculptors, we all post because we WANT to share these works with you. For free.

Watchers.
Meaningless. Deviant Art isn't like YouTube where we get paid for how many times our pictures are viewed. It isn't a subscription service like Patreon. (It's called patronage or donations, but come on, your paying for something from month to month because you want to look at it. That's a subscription). It's a place where people share their art because they want to. I want to share my art with other people because I feel like they enjoy seeing my art. And I'm guessing that people are taking my art and posting it on other sites as their own work because they like my art A LOT. So here's the thing. If you like my art that much, and by that extension, me. Why would you want to hurt me like this?
Do you have any idea how many gorgeous days I've spent inside, learning how to draw, that I will never get back? The vacations I didn't go on, the friendless hours spent alone? How LITTLE money I make. I have spent THOUSANDS of hours learning how to draw a calf muscle from memory so that when someone asks me to draw someone standing in such a way, or I want to draw a pose for a panel in a comic book, I can do so without having to go and find a picture reference. References are great. They really are. But try drawing a comic book and finding a reference for every pose that you need. It would take FOREVER to draw an entire comic. All that work for what? So you can take my art and repost it? 

I LOVE getting great comments from all you guys out there. It makes me feel like I'm not wasting my life. But you can't pay your bills with love.  
Now, if you want, I could move to an entirely commission based work flow where only I and the person who have paid for it will see the full image. Or I can post super cropped pictures here and make you pay me on some other site to see the full thing. I DON'T want to do that. But I can. I can also stop posting all together and get a real job and make lots more money and never have to get an email or note or letter telling me that someone is stealing my art. But that's not a real solution. People are fired suddenly all the time, or you find out someone you love has been cheating on you. 

There are MUCH worse things out there than what art thieves are doing. In fact, it's about as bottom of the barrel tragic as I am bottom of the barrel of the entertainment industry. But maybe it's because of that, because my art is SO unimportant and yet I cling to it so TIGHTLY, that I feel so personal about all this. 

I've got close to ten thousand watchers and almost 700,00 page views. But on average, it's only the same twenty to thirty people who comment, (of which I read ALL of them), and each drawing gets an average of about 500-1000 faves.
That's it.
But that's who I do all this for. About a thousand people, out of 7,000,000,000. That's enough for me. That's enough for me because sometimes, I know, it's hard to make any sort of a connection with even one person.

So am I going to punish everyone with having to look at a big ugly watermark because one person is being hurtful? No. Am I only going to publish cropped pictures and move into a pay-to-play world? No. But how do I stop you from hurting me? I could report these thefts to the mods of that site. So what? You can just open a new blog under a different name and go right on reposting my work, and it becomes this cat and mouse game of me chasing you, and you running from me, and nothing ever gets made ever again, and it's only over when one of us gets tired and quits. Or, you stop taking my art and you start taking from another artist. How does that help anyone? It doesn't. All I can tell you is that you are making me, the guy who spent so much of his life devoted to THIS, wonder if it's worth it. 
ESS LIVE IN CONCERT by ZaftigBunnyPress
ESS LIVE IN CONCERT
Another Ess commission. This time for :iconrudeboy308:  I had a lot of fun with this Heavy Metal turn on my Punk Skunk. My idea for her onstage persona is sort of a 20's flapper gone metal.

Nether Regions by ZaftigBunnyPress

Jeza ponders which instrument would best suit this situation. Perhaps there are scent clues that will help her sniff out the answer in Penny's personal effects. 

This was a commission for :iconhollandworks: A tit bit tad more macabre than my usual work.

Normally, when I say I'll do a more detailed background for a higher priced commission, I don't usually mean THIS. Originally, the commissioner came to me with a MUCH more streamlined idea. I suggested a more infernal tone to match his demoness' character, and it lava balled from there, ( I would have had said snowballed, but...) 

Having done almost no monster scenes, but being a fan of the genre, this was a lot of fun to do. 

So, should I do more monster pics?


Jeza created by :iconhollandworks:
Sweet Buxom Penny was created by me. 

Thank you to :iconspiderweber: for introducing me to the more esoteric uses of spider web.

Hello, I am contacting people I have decided to watch and admire to tell them about a project we have underway.

Myself and Traumwelt (visit his DA page here-->nemoalleintraumwelt.deviantart…) have begun creating our first comic book together. It is called Old Harry's tale, and it is a supernatural and philosophical drama. The first six pages of Issue #1 will be submitted to Tumblr and DA

We call ourselves Scapegoat comics and all news of the project will be relayed here at the Scapegoat comics club --> scapegoat-comics.deviantart.co… And I would like all those who watch me to join.

The project is going to be set to a kickstarter which will be linked to the club page later within the month. And all who join the club will have early access to the rewards including the free digital intro comic bening the rules.

If you want to join it is automatically approved, you just need to click a button. If you don't want to, that's fine. It's your choice after all.

Also even if you do not join the club I would be most pleased if you watched this video we made and tell us what you think--> www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvWc6w…

Once again, you can ingore all of this. You have free will after all.
