AEmilius' Journal #7

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 28, 2014, 6:22 PM

It's been four months since the last one so it's time for another journal entry. I don't really have much to say, though. I'm still around, trying to stick to my sort of schedule, but I have to say my dA-experience has changed a bit. I'm a little disappointed really. In a relatively short time I've seen many friends leave dA, others are drifting away, other people suddenly have an odd attitude towards me, while a few act like they owe me something so they come and +fav everything I do. I watch a lot of people who don't give me the time of day, and that's perfectly alright. I will not stop supporting anybody I like because they don't reciprocate every comment or fav. It's not a trade of any sort for me. I do appreciate all forms of feedback, but I don't want for it to feel like any sort of obligation for anyone. 

I used to have a 'featured friends' box in my profile, but some people were kind of jealous and I ended up removing it. I hate it when things become some sort of popularity contest, I hate it when we can't be grownups and this place becomes some sort of schoolground. These things make me feel like giving up on the 'social' side of the community. I've already stopped thanking for +favs, which is sad because it makes me miss a great way to meet new people. But I just had to, after several episodes with people who acted like my thanking for a favorite unleashed Armageddon, and threatened to report me, block me and such. It's sad how this place can seem to be so full of irrational, immature people sometimes. Sigh... It's not all bad, of course. I didn't really want to complain or to sound this whiny. I can't be grateful enough for the still-good part of my dA experience. It gives me motivation and focus, which is a priceless thing to have.

Anyway, on a lighter note, I just found out the group Target-View featured my Hades as their best submission of July 2014 :D They must have had a really bad month :P Also, I've finally been learning how to use ZBrush a bit, and I'll be incorporating some of its tools and features to my sculptures. I had used Zbrush before to fix some errors when I was exporting some models from other softwares, but never really to do something from scratch in its environment. This month I used fibermesh to make my Horned King's fur, and I'm pleased with the result. My previous sculpted version of the fur looked like some sort of cushion with cat scratches on it :giggle: I've also been experimenting with some cool brushes. So I'll be sculpting other movie, videogame, cartoon and comicbook characters soon, using these new-learned thingies. I already had half a dozen Disney villains in the works, and last week I made a lot of progress with two new villainesses, so that's still going. Even though the "Disney Villain the 28 of every month" thingy might change in 2015. I might do heroes/heroines, or sidekicks, or something else every 28 next year. But I'll still make new villains and revisit some old ones.

Alright, I guess that's it. Lucky I didn't have much to say :P
TL;DR :P Thanks for sticking around.
