Stock News: Feb 2008

Sometimes I feel as if my inner mental landscape is getting cluttered: pirate wenches, harem dancers, witches, beautiful zombies, ninjas...

Wait
Did you say "ninjas"??  Yes, you read that correctly. My next offering is a bucket-load of new stuff including - gasp - the results of my first shoot with a male model. I managed to book a shoot with a local model, Josh P, who is a very athletic and scarily well-built young man with a good sense of play and a good sense of humor. Exactly the kind of person I need. And, he particularly liked my insane collection of prop weaponry. So, over the next week or two I am going to try to upload respectively sets of Josh as a ninja, barbarian warrior, buccaneer prince, gorean warrior, and duellist.

In the past year, several of you have asked me "why no male models?" and my answer has usually been "I dig girls."  But I have to admit that we had a good shoot and I got some great stock to share with you guys. Maybe I'll get inspired by this, and shoot more male stock in the future. No promises.

Contest Stuff
I haven't said anything more about contest stuff but here's what I am going to do. I'll make an official announcement about it when I get back from Europe, but the short and sweet is that I am going to have an ongoing award series called the Wow Factor Award (Thanks to :iconrickbw1: for the name!)

Based on my experience with my mega-contest, the Wow Factor Award is going to be the exact opposite: a monthly set of prizes aimed at individual artworks that involve my stock, and which - well - have something about them that I particularly like. It's what I call "award sniping": you may just get a prize smacking you in the back of the head as you walk down the street. Well, maybe not literally, but I like the mental image.

I have been consulting with my inner circle of evil artist ninja buddies and one of my best DA buddies is working on a cool banner/logo. Expect more news in late March.

Till then, I'm just going to keep my mouth shut and upload more stock! OK?

Love you all,
mjr.

Your stock is great. The greatest! Ever!
And now with male models, that should help me a lot in my "work". Thanks so much!

By the way, why don't you create separate folders for each collection? Like your latest (an utterly stunning) Parts should have a folder of its own. That would help a lot while browsing. 8D

I thought about just puttig it all on a scale of quirkiness from 1 to 10.
