Ello NetworkI recently joined the new Ello network and there are a TON of artists of all types. If you want some idea of what Ello is, check this LA Times article.One of the great photographers on Ello has compiled a list of other photogs.Ello is still in BETA and invite-only, but if anyone would like an invite, let me know. First-come, first-serve. When I run out, you'll have to wait.
Cosplay PhotosThose of us that enjoy cosplay, will find Mr. Santoso's website a treasure trove of worldwide cosplay photos. He was kind enough to list my SuperCon gallery ( http://ecfield.deviantart.com/gallery/50202813/SuperCon )along with hundreds of other cosplay photo sites.His site is: http://www.nyx.net/~wsantoso/cosplay.html
It's a great life...If you don't weaken. I've spent the last six weeks working on a new eCommerce website. If all goes well, I'll be announcing it to the world on October 1st. Besides the usual free stories, blog, and pretty pictures, I'm be offering novels, audiobooks, cardstock models, and stock photos.If anyone would like to help with the beta testing, please send me an email and I'll share the URL. In other news, there was a really pretty sunrise on the end of my street, so I'm sharing it in the form of a panoramic shot, suitable for desktop wallpaper. Enjoy!
New WebsiteI've been buried in building a new website for the last month. It is now ready for testing. If anyone has a few minutes, I'd appreciate some feedback on how it looks in your browser. Supposedly, it will work well in all major browsers as well as smartphones and tablets. The URL is: http://postorbitallibrary.com/As soon as the beta test phase is over and I'm satisfied that all the basic components work, I'm going to add a lot more content. The only part that I *know* isn't working is the Stock Photo gallery. I still have to sort out the "Buy Now" buttons on it. Hope everyone is having a great week!
SuperCon in MiamiI spent most of Saturday at SuperCon in Miami and shot almost two hundred images. A few of them have been posted to a new SuperCon folder in my Gallery. https://ecfield.deviantart.com/gallery/50202813/SuperConI want to apologize for not being able to thank everyone for the recent faves. It's been hectic and I've just not had the time. Believe me, they are all appreciated.
Photowalk in the ParkI went with another couple of photographers, for a walk in a local park. Got some interesting shots. Also spent some time at the beach. All in all, it was a lovely day.
Shibari Sails CoversI've just posted three samples of cover art for a short story I'm going to publish this summer. I don't believe any of them will be the final cover, but I'm asking for some feedback. What do you think? Which one looks best in both thumbnail and full-size view? For those who are interested, the model is the lovely Meena, the camera is a Panasonic Lumix FZ100, the post-production work was done with GIMP and Inkscape. Any questions, feel free.
Just Some FoliageIt has been a slow couple of weeks. I've been catching up on back chores and finally finished the last of the remodeling for a while. Now going to focus on writing and editing. Hope y'all are finally getting a chance to enjoy springtime.
DA BEST MOVIE
Los puntos de DA, el dinero de rascapiquilandia16 de Marzo de 2010 Puntos de Deviant Art, el dinero de Rascapiquilandia Posiblemente el título de este artículo os resultará extraño si no habéis visto el primer capítulo de la sexta temporada de los Simpson ; en el que la familia amarilla va a visitar el parque de atracciones de Rasca y Pica. En este episodio, la taquillera le ofrece a Homer adquirir dinero de Rascapiquilandia, informándole de que se utiliza dentro del parque como el dinero normal, pero teniendo más gracia. Homer compra dinero de Rascapiquilandia por valor de 1100 dólares , y nada más entrar en el parque se encuentra que el 99% de los comercios no aceptan dinero de Rascapiquilandia... un gag que siempre me hace esbozar una sonrisa de complicidad.¿Que por qué os cuento esto? Pues porque guarda una tremenda similitud con el sistema de puntos de Deviant Art, el cual pretendo explicar con detalle

announcementsMarch 11th, 2018 - season confusionThis was kind of an off enrollment, so here's clarification.Fall is NOT over. New members joined IC on the 15th of Fall. The next festival is on the 19th.The calendar has been updated with new character birthdays. If you just joined the group and your character's birthday is on the 15th or later, you can do the birthday quest.March 7th, 2018 - gold systemIf you are waiting for an app review, rest assured, it is coming! I am trying to be detailed so it takes a while for me to write. Please refrain from sending notes/additional comments.To current members, as you might have noticed, the gold journal is marked as outdated. I am planning to rebalance the gold system. It would be to your advantage to wait before submitting drawings for gold until the update is released (you are free to submit to the gallery, but I'd advise you to stall adding it on the site).March 3rd, 2018 - welcome new guests!Thank you for your patience!
