What was that? Nothing? by hhemken

Where I get my ideas

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 8, 2015, 11:20 AM

From other people!  Directly or indirectly.

This is one of many reasons why I'm open to at least considering requests: requesters often have excellent ideas.

For the moment, I happen to be blessedly solvent, so I don't have to take commissions.  I don't much like the idea of commissions anyway, because then I'd be way too beholden to the customer.  With a request, I can take it or leave it; and if I take it, I can do it my way, and too bad if it's way different from what the requester was thinking of.

But requesters often have excellent ideas!  And sometimes their ideas lead to other ideas.

Like almost everyone, I get creative block sometimes, though I seem to be lucky in not getting it often or for very long.  (Right now I'm up to my eyeballs in ideas - with slow rendering time, I'll have ideas to spare for the rest of the summer.)  When I get creative block, and the requesters are quiet or have ideas I don't like, I go back to my own earlier work.

I'm really proud of what a productive summer I'm having: almost one post per day since the beginning of June 2012.  So it's a record summer in terms of raw quantity!  As for quality...of course I don't think any of it has been bad, though so far it's running below my average in terms of popularity.  The new ones have been a lot more varied than in past summers - and as time goes by, their popularity will slowly grow.


On thanking faves: I like to! Even when I run into curmudgeons who actually object to being thanked. :? :X

However, I have the problem of being popular! Well, sort of. Not, thank God, popular enough to make enemies, but popular enough that I can't thank every fave. So as a compromise, I thank everyone who faves and comments, and everyone who faves more than once during the period (typically four or five days) before the next time I go through and delete messages. So if you fave and don't get a thank-you, sorry, I thank you all!

The bartender
Pandora has for some time now been owner and manager of the Hyperion Bar, once notorious for sleaze.

:iconvirtualpandora:  I've cleaned it up!  Not the dress code, of course.  Come as you are!  (Or would like to be.)

Credits: the Hyperion Bar is by Ajax, Moebius87 and billy home, from DAZ.  Pandora is wearing the official Hyperion uniform.

:iconvirtualpandora:  My own choice.  Not my design - that's God's.  But it shows that God has good taste.
Chibi Mikami twins
Lots of chibi figures lately!  Today it's :iconshnoogums5060:'s DX Divas Misa and Akane.

Credits: the Divas' home away from home, the Reflections Victorian Bedroom, from DAZ.  Misa and Akane are (c) shnoogums5060.

Isn't about time we have Chibis of Kitty and the other lovely catgirl types? :) 
Chronophontes Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Absolutely!  I've already made chibi versions of two of them ( Chibi catgirls ) but I wouldn't mind "chibi-ing" the others too.  (As well as more renders of chibi Kitty and Ari)
