...What, were you expecting another wall of text?
Im coming back to DA!Im going to be shutting down my Patreon soon because the expectation of content upkeep in return for profit just didnt feel good for me and it was causing art blocks and break-downs. From now on all my content will be posted to DA be it independant, EarthGate, Rival Dynasties or Sevastopol related.
GRIPPEN IOU (Discontinued)The Grippen International Operations Unit.
The Grippen unit is my gaming clan, for the most part we play casually together on games like Warthunder, Overwatch, Stellaris etc. My rules in Grippen include being nice to one another, none of that disrespectful modern slang, or excessive cussing, We also try to stay politically correct (this means Racism and other discriminatory language is unacceptable) My aim with Grippen is to build a group where politeness is intertwined with casual gaming and recreation online. A sort of haven away from the inconsiderate disrespect of most net users.
Im opening Grippen to new members now, some of the benefits of joining us include a trustworthy admin staff (enforced by yours truly) dependable moderators and a firm stand on keeping to the rules without suffering from "filing cabinet in the ass" syndrome. By joining us in Grippen you can be a part of our upstanding little community, enjoy games, make friends (or just mingle) with people who remember what
Patreon Update. New Goals. Games on the horizon.Heyo all.
I know most of you are probably sick of hearing about Patreon by now but please hear me out, if this next paragraph catches your eye, please consider me.
Earth Gate has been developing quietly for a while now and I think the universe is getting big enough and fleshed out enough that things need to start going up a level, I've just recently amended my goals on Patreon, Upon reaching my most realistic goal of $200 a month, I'll personally begin work on an Earth Gate adventure RPG game made on the RPG Maker software, I've worked with it before and I know what im doing. The extra income will help me pay professional pixel artists and sprite makers for high quality assets to make the game totally original, none of the usual stock assets you see in most RPG Maker games.
Okay if your still reading I guess your interested. Earth Gate's first RPG game will feature modern favorites like crafting mechanics, resource acquisition, open world gameplay and questing, im not just talking abou
Viral Competition.Im not sure how many of you here on DeviantArt are gamers.
But As usual, here's another post where I speak my mind about things.
Over the past few years since the onset of "Super-twitch-Shooter" games, Communities across the web have been degenerating into isolated, win-or-die fanaticals. Try as they might, developers have only two choices these days, Go with the flow and watch their game melt into another in a growing string of competitive cesspools.
What exactly am I talking about? I'll try to explain.
Video games were originally conceived as a fun way to pass the time and engage in friendly competition. Reference, the Arcade. Back in the day, You would compete for bragging rights and the high score shoulder to shoulder on arcade machines against people you would see frequently at the Arcade. There were certain things you had to adhere to in order to maintain the respect of spectators, Be a good sport, try to out wit your opponent a
An Ark is opening!Hello all. If your reading this then you know me and know what I do. But I'll explain anyway.
My name is Beth Taylor (Gwentari) and I work on EarthGate(AU). Earth Gate its self is a large scale Sci-Fi universe set in the near/distancing future. It entails mankind's story of becoming a member of the galactic community and how it survives the struggles of being a galactic player. Within Earth Gate you will find starships, planets, gadgets, people, corporations, Governments, Pirates, Criminals and everything in-between. Less than 10% of earth gate has actually been modeled and uploaded to my DeviantArt/Patreon. Its just that huge.
My long run goal with Earth Gate is to grow it into the next big sci-fi universe to rival Star Trek, Stargate or even the media giant StarWars. Now Earth Gate wouldnt be what it is without the help of some very close friends of mine, My friend from arizona who is my primary roleplayer (ill explain that in a moment) and my Boyfriend from England who is my p
ProfitFollowing on from my little rant in my previous journal entry, I'd like to voice some legitimate concerns.
I know im not the only person who has noticed this by now, Corporations are becoming and have been becoming excessively greedy for a long time. Its not enough that they make a profit on their products to help them expand, they need more, more income, more profit, more return, greed is consuming our businesses. Its not enough for them to be able to simply do the job they set out to do.
Companies seem unable to accept that profits can be "acceptable", it seems as though everybody who sits down at a board meeting will never be happy unless their profits are greater than the last time they sat down at the table. (notice the pattern here?) I understand some of the personal gains from being at the head of an increasingly wealthy company, You can pay your bills without care, you can get the latest car, enjoy fine comforts, treat your families to first class living, take the fear failure
Sketch-upedMy pro-trial ran out on sketchup, the one you get when you download a new copy of sketchup, I got a trial again since I downloaded it on my new computer, You may have noticed the sharp increase in fidelity of less angular models such as my star trek stuff. I owe this new fidelity to a selection of tools called "Solid Tools" They opened many new doors for me in sketchup and now that my trial ran out I nolonger have them. I was very offended and disappointed to learn that sketchup charges more than £500 for a single license to use Pro. I also cannot seem to get a clear read on their licence either, I cannot tell if I will need to renew it frequently, if its lifetime or if its infrequent renewal. But never the less, It took me quite some time to get enough money for a new computer now I must consider a potentially repeating £500 a year, every couple of years, For somebody living on benefits that is nightmare talk.
So for now, I cannot use sketchup because I refuse to back-pedal

EXTENDED Design Contest! [CLOSED]Hello... Is it a contest you're looking for?
Well, you see, me and Berry have shipped her OC and Sunrise for years, and we never got a legit family for them... So, because it was her

Collective Feature #20Updates:
Firstly, I want to thank the anonymous user who gave me a 3-month Premium Membership. I don't use the features much, but I like the journal themes, so thank you!
Secondly, I wanted to thank everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday! Being at college, nothing excited happened except classes and work, but I did get to help out at a dodgeball tournament our club hosted, so that was kinda fun.
Thirdly, who else enjoyed the 70=80 degree temperatures and gorgeous weather on Friday + Saturday? Cause I know I did! It was short lived (back to rainy, windy, and cool) but I hope you all made the most of it! I drove up to Teatown Reservation to see if there was any growth, but there was very few. They opened up their "Wildflower Island" to the public and I hope to go back in a couple of weeks when things begin to grow more.
I already know it's going to be one of those weeks because this morning I burnt a finger on the

Comissions: Opened o.o!HELLO THERE
YES! I'M MAKING COMMISSIONS. BILLS TO PAY, NEED TO SURVIVE LOL
In all seriousness, I wanna start to make commissions. After talking to Alyssa (walkingmelons on youtube) about prices, I'm leaning towards following her policy. So if you want to commission me here are some details:
A fully colored digital drawing (like this one): $40 (may charge extra if there are more than 2 characters)
A fully colored digital drawing only focusing on the upper body part: $30
Since I'm just starting with the commission thing I wanna take it slowly and patiently, maybe in a future I'll be able to draw only sketched or simple colored drawings which will be cheaper, but for now I'll focus on what I know I can do better. If you are interested, send me a note named "Commission" and then add what you want. I'm thinking I can only take maybe 2 commissions per week to get started, when I get the hang of it I'll probably be able to take more in.
As for the time, it depends. If I'm inspired I might jus
