Hey I've been following your work for a while now. I only come onto DA once every few months to check out yours and a few other artist work every now and then. I come on so infrequently that I don't really bother following the changes to the site so premium users and points are things I haven't bothered to look into very much. I'm not artistic in the slightest I just come here to enjoy what others have made.......
I'd just like to say a couple things:

1st: You are completely justified charging for your work and I feel that you have set a good price for a nice desktop wall, and I find your price acceptable to pay for most of the walls you have put out so far.
My only gripe is that it is only available through the point system and having to buy set amounts of points. I am aware this is not your fault or really in your control. I hope that at some point you or DA can set up a direct buy system either through just money or through buying of the exact amount of points you need for a purchase. Being a poor college student I can honestly say the difference between spending $1 and $5 actually matters at many times.

2nd: I actually discovered your work through one of those sites that doesn't credit the authors or anything. I liked what I found so much that I used Tineye to find the original post by the author (you) here on DA. If I remember correctly that was your injected/administered series (please note that I am in no way agreeing with their practices, but it's not a total loss).

3rd: I have enjoyed your work for years and I hope to continue.

4th: In summary I'll probably just wait until you put out several pieces I want and buy them all when I have the money to spare.

Thank you kindly for your words. Yes, the premium content feature does have that minor annoyance. Your idea is sound but again DA has been using the point system for quite sometime.

About my work being posted on other sites... Well, there's very little I can do about it. I keep telling people to link me back here on DA but I guess it falls on deaf ears. However, I've noticed eventually the people that end up using the work do make their way back here on my page. xD Not sure if anyone has noticed but that's the main reason why I only exist here on DA. Imagine if I had my work on other social media sites...? I wouldn't be able to manage the stress. xD

Anyhow, am currently working on another piece that could end up on the Premium Content list.

It's always amazing to see the level of details in your artworks. With every new piece of work, I'm more and more amazed. Too bad we're no longer able to have it for free. :/
But nevermind, you deserve every penny for your work. As soon as I revive my card, this will be on top of my "to-buy" list.

One question, which you don't have to answer: Do you use strictly 2D graphic manipulation software and technique in creation of your artwork, or you combine it with 3D creation software?

To relate to your first comment... The reason why this particular work is for sale it was simply to try to support this new feature on the DA and of course to put a little extra cash in my pocket.

Now, having said that this money will also go back to the community to help out. Unfortunately, people have missed the point. If I put something up for sale trust me it will not be mediocre work. I been doing this for too long.

Anyways, the thing is that most of us have gotten use to the fact that if I simply have this artwork on my desktop it should be free. I agree. But I have come to believe that the desktop has turned into a virtual gallery sort of speak. Just because the artwork is on the internet it doesn't mean its free. The argument is sound. Someone put their heart and soul into it. That should be worse something.

Now, to answer your second comment/question... Here's my list of programs: Photoshop, Illustrator, Bryce, Particle Illusion, and sometimes Cinema 4D. Usually, the grunt work is done in PS and Illustrator. I like to experiment a lot. Sometimes something spectacular comes out of random experimentation. That's where the fun is. And yes at times a do combine 3D and 2D alike.

I been meaning to do a tutorial for a while now. But time is not my side. xD

BTW, Thank you for the kind support. xD

You're welcome my friend.

And yes, I "suspected" that there is something more going on, when it comes to your artwork. It's really hard to imagine creating such amazing stuff, with Ps only for example... I guess it would take ages to create such amazing details using Ps only.

On the subject of "not being free" artwork, I totally support your decision to sell your art. You're right when you say that people used to download and have whatever they like on their desktops, without thinking even a little bit about how much time and nerves someone involved in given artwork. And people get used to think that everything you came across on the web, IS free.
You see dozens of various "Wallpaper" sites, ripping and stealing someone's artwork, with zero respect to original authors, and it's so sad.

For example, there is this this site: [link]
where I came across a lot of your wallpapers (and mine also, and a lot of others from dA), without credit to original authors/source, even there IS option to add source of the posted artwork. And I registered just to warn moderators about ripped artwork, and literally came in "fight" with one of them... Such disrespect for original authors, wou wouldn't believe. I understand that "free" artwork is free to use, but if you decide to share someone's artwork, you can at least mention source or author of it...

Keep rulling the dA with your artwork.

I hear ya man. That wall site links'... They are notorious for doing what we discussed. In the end you can't really blame me for putting my work up for sale. xD Nah, seriously there no traffic cops on the net so nothing we can do about. XD Not that I want any or anything of the sort. Let's keep it that way. Its bad enough f****ng corporations doing it already.

I just wish people had a little more respect, but the truth is if people don't respect you in what we call the real world don't expect a great deal of humility here in cyber space either.

Anyhow, yes I do spend a great deal of time on some of my work. Perfection is something I strive for but I know in the end there's no such thing. The only reality that's true to perfection is the Universe. We are here by chance not by design. Think about that one when you close your eyes next time.

Okay, enough of my crap. xD

It's not crap...
I agree with everything you said beside having a little doubts about "design vs. chance" dilemma. :)

Btw, I just noticed that only way to buy this artwork is via dA points? No direct card paying, or PayPal... So we need to buy points first, and then use them for payment. I'm totally new to dA payment process, so understand my confusion. :)

XD Design and Chance will always be the infinite conundrum. Anyways, yes the NEW purchase points feature works as you stated. The seller can turn those points later into cash or straight to paypal. In turn the artwork is yours. Of course, there's the license agreement which you must honor. You can use the artwork as you please, but never for monetary gain. I think its fair enough.

Just purchased the lapis one. I was a bit undecided between this one and lapis one, and lapis won this time... But maybe I'll buy this one too. :)

That's a smart move trying to sell some artworks (so much time to make things must be considered)
I totally approved it, considering i am in the same way as you here in France

Well, I just people understand that is not just about me making a little money on the side, but also put back into the community with those points. BTW, thank you kindly for the support. Anyways, not everything I create will be for sale. Is not about the money at least not for me.
