New pics

Hey folks,

I'm still alive :D How are you? I hope everything is fine over there. Here, it's summer. A freakin warm one. Nevertheless I'm done with my 5th semester and have some free-time now. The result: two new pics. I actually like both of them. You seem to have a clear favourite though.

Thanks a lot for all your comments and favs. I really appreciate them (as always). I hope to keep me motivated for new art (it's also time for some new photos :eager:)


MacRebisz and KeremGo started the third part of the Beyond the Frontier contest series. You can find all needed information here:… :eager: :la: :woohoo:

Donation Pool and goodforn0thing

I set up another donation pool. This time for myself. My second account taenaron-photo needs a new premium membership. The awesome goodforn0thing just gave him one :wow: :O. Go give him some love. I'm really really thankful!!!

There are rules

Last point in this journal: the least important one (surprise).
I read a lot of journals in the last time. A lot of people seem to be angry about certain things on dA. You know what? Me too. It's the first time I'm talking about it in public. But to make it clear: I love this page and large parts of the community. It still is my favourite page in the web.

Now the rage-part. Please tell me, why these images are uploaded to the screenshot category:… &…

I can tell you why. Because both have been uploaded by an attention-whore. Actually, that's not the problem. The problem is that the misplacement reports were and are ignored. Please help me and report both images as misplaced deviations. It's not about alexiuss. It's a general problem here. Everybody could do it the same way as he. But then, we don't need categories at all. So: remove the categories or treat people equally.

A little other sidenote aiming at alexiuss:… xD
don't you see that he is abusing you for his "I want to earn some money" project? I'm honestly jealous of this army of slaves xD Good job captain.

Normalerweise ist er ja populär genug und bräuchte es gar nicht in diese Kategorien hochzuladen. Die Bilder hätten mit sicherheit auch so genug views und fav´s bekommen.
taenaron Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2010   Digital Artist
Jo das macht das Ganze eigtl noch trauriger... -.-
ErikShoemaker Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ich wusste gar nicht, dass die Kategorie immer noch die Views beeinflusst. Ich dachte das sei damals entschärft worden, nachdem die ganzen myspace pics auf der Frontpage gelandet sind. :P
Naja ich bin da vollkommen deiner Meinung, habe ihn auch vor einer Weile von meiner Liste gekickt. Am bescheuertsten fand ich das Butter-Legion-Ding...

Naja wenn man mal die beiden verlinkten Bilder anguckt: das eine gehört zu den top 100 Bildern auf dA. Wenns jedoch in der digital art gallery hochgeladen wäre/stehen würde, wäre es da nicht. Naja was solls.

Das Traurige sind eigentlich die vielen Irren, die ihm planlos hinterher rennen :/

Interesting Journal entry, taenaron. Although, I don't quite understand your anger at other artists, for misplacing deviations. What is the benefit for purposefully misplacing a deviation? (if it was on purpose)

I'm just an art lover and browse dA for fun. I did take a look at the FAQ regarding the desktop screenshot category but it seems like a very knit-pick rule from my point of view as a deviant browser. Maybe someone can explain :)
taenaron Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2010   Digital Artist
The purpose is attention and popularity.
[link] this image for example blongs to the top 100 deviations of all time. and why? just because it is uploaded to the screenshot gallery.

just imagine how it would look like if everyone uploads new images to screenshot gallery. that way we don't need galleries at all.

I actually met him once XD I went to toronto to meet him. We made the ray gun in one of his latest comics after running around a bunch of salvation army and goodwill stores (you call that a weapon?)
He's not much of a talker, believe me. I'm glad my friend Zander came to visit with me or it would've been the most awkward thing ever XD
But that guy knows he is good, and knows he has fans, and most certainly uses is to his advantage. And I'll be honest, one of my facebook profile pictures is me with the captain and sniper (courtesy of Alexiuss himself).
He's clever, I'll tell you that. =w=;;;
taenaron Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2010   Digital Artist
I don't doubt he is clever. His marketing indeed is pretty effective. Every artist has to promote his own art. That's part of the game.
But he is abusing his position of having thousands of fans. And the administration isn't doing anything against things like deviations that have been uploaded to the wrong category on purpose, to get more attention out of it.
