My latest and greatest images right here. No spefic genres but rest assured of 2 things:

1: Most of my images are for my pending RPG and 2: I retain all copyrights to all of my original works no ifs, ands, or buts. Do not copy my work I will make a federal case out of it.

All that fan art you can have so long as I get credit for creating the image and you post this link : spydraxis.weebly.com/
That should just about cover it. Thanks for viewing and all the faves folks. I'll say it again in person rest assured.

In the Horus-Ra system Obsidian Mask follows up on clues that have led him to believe that his beloved wife has been somehow transported 500 years into the past. In the hopes of finding out how this could possibly be he has sought out none other than the god Thoth with only the slightest glimmer of hope.

Nechronos the time master by Spydraxis01
Nechronos the time master
While he claims to be a master of time there is no evidence to support such claims. There is however, ample evidence to support his claim as a powerful Mage and a formidable warrior. As seen here Nechronos has the ability to control even the most powerful of creatures and bend their will to his own, whether this is done through some powerful relic or through his own incantations is unknown. What is known is that he ranks among the top 20 on The Magi-Council's most wanted list and the top 10 on the department of archaic affairs  most wanted list. He is a cruel and heartless creature out for his won ends and is remorseless when in pursuit of his goals. Those unfortunate enough to cross his path or get in his way have often met with an untimely end. In short Nechronos is not to be toyed with or taken lightly.

Species Striped Felinus by Spydraxis01
Species Striped Felinus
The Striped Felinus are simply semi-evolved cat people that still retain approximately 40% of their Animal features. They have a savage mentality but can be tamed and taught rudimentary languages and simple repetitive labor. Many of the feline species have kept them for more nefarious purposes such as sex slaves or just slave labor. In appearance the Striped Felinus resemble many of their cousins (with whom they can create viable, yet mentally limited, offspring) however they long possess sharp claws and fangs which they use to great effectiveness when hunting or defending themselves. To the casual observer the females of their species have short velvety fur and appear quite pretty at least as far as facial features and body shape go. They are incredibly fast runners and usually travel on all fours except when walking.  They can climb even the tallest trees with supreme ease. They have no society and are loners with males and females only gathering during mating times.  Females may have from 1-4 kittens with a gestation period of 10 weeks. Kittens set out on their own at roughly 11 months at which time they are nearly the size of their parents. Striped Felinus live for about 30 years barring physical misfortunes and illness. They are illegal to keep as pets without an exotic license and the worlds they inhabit in the IGFW territories are guarded against trapping.  Captive bred Felinus are expensive but completely legal to own. It is important to note that this species possesses only animal intelligence despite how they might appear and have no deities to which they owe allegiance and so have no form of supernatural protection. Their homeworld of Nageera 6 is a paradise untamed by modern cultures and thanks to the efforts of conservationists has been designated a refuge due to the number of species unique to that world.

Well the Animation Principals course is over and I got  95...and just when I though I was done with 2d animations, they go and throw in the official "2D animation" class. 5.5 more weeks of drawing my ass off till my hand aches without the proper tools to do so. Tools they don't mention in the brochure like (A light box, drawing supplies, paper...don't forget the paper.)in 3d animation all I need is my computer and my peripherals. This is such bullshit, there is simply no reason for a 3d artist to have to do 2d animation, unless they're being blended in a film and even then a 2d artists covers the 2d aspects. I shouldn't have to take 2 courses in 2d animation...I don't get it but I'll do it because I have to.  In case you're wondering, my disdain for 2d animation stems from being a 2d artist and knowing exactly how long and tedious the process of animating in that medium is.  I have only the highest admiration for 2d animators but I could not stand doing it myself.
As many of you know I have been taking and online course for 3D animation.  The beginning class for this course is 2D animation...which I hate. I hate it so much i actually thought I would not do very well at it...I was wrong. When the last week cleared and the grades were in i scored a magnificent 95 overall. Not too bad for a guy who dislikes 2D animation as much as I do...  Well i'll keep you all posted..

Quick question: what are your editorial requirements for contributions to science-fiction-cgi? 

If/when I make future contributions I don't want to waste your or my time if it is not going to fit your requirements...

We have a strict policy in our galleries, if an image does not belong (for instance a fantasy mage) we reject it, if an image is posted to the wrong gallery (A nude in "Original Characters") it is rejected. I personally have made several posts about gallery submissions and expect all members to have a basic working knowledge of how the galleries are set up.  Most importantly the art needs to not be of high quality I have allowed some mediocre pieces into our galleries because they were great concepts IMHO but overall the pieces should be aesthetically pleasing. Lastly (and I cannot stress this enough) it must be a sci-fi piece or part of a sci-fi universe. A dragon is perfectly acceptable so long as it is based in a sci-fi universe (see Galaxy5 gallery) those are the only exceptions. To define Sci-Fi we have used the following criteria: The piece should have something (any object) that gives it away, a ship, multiple suns, laser gun etc. that gives the nature of the piece away.  I have heart-wrenchingly rejected pieces that were simply fantastic all because they were not actual Science Fiction pieces. Contemporary pieces featuring actual NASA space scenes are NOT Sci-Fi they are science fact regardless of the context, put them next to a trek ship and you have something.  I hope this helps

It does help, somewhat.  I guess I'm still new enough to DA that I can't figure how to post to particular galleries.  I do 99.9% science fiction images so I line up there, I guess I'll try again...

Hey friend how did you get the sub-dragon morphs from dariofish to work on your DS4.6 which I have but only the poses, textures, and expressions work again how do I get the sub-dragon morphs to work.

The morphs should be dialed in via the parameters tab or look for them under hellfish or animals in your Content Library.
