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.

Andros Colony by Spydraxis01
Andros Colony
Andros Colony, just one of that many stops Obsidian makes in his search to find his lost wife. At a glance Andros Colony appears to be a bustling metropolis clean and pristine, a modern utopia, but this a facade. The colony is home to some of the worst organized crime head in the 5 galaxies. Sheltered by Mega-Corporations who are in bed with them making billions of credits in drug trafficking, slavery trade, and Murder for hire. On this world Obsidian's reputation precedes him and many of the criminals here would enjoy seeing him dead. Information will be heard to get...but Obsidian will have answers and men will bleed to make that happen.

Sales Floor by Spydraxis01
Sales Floor
Buying a robot horse is a lot like buying a car. There are many models with dozens of options available. Everything from luxury models like the Centaur, to economy class like the Stallion and even flight capable models like the Icarus. With right documents and credentials you can even get the well armed heavy duty Apocalypse. All models are subject to credit check, and finance terms and restrictions may apply.

Zero-Steed by Spydraxis01
Zero-Steed
Many worlds have certain bans on select types of technology firearms, vehicles, and mecha, as well as aircraft, are often the most common contraband. On those rare occasions Obsidian has been known to comply with local authorities (Who are most often IGFW or worse yet Deities) and uses less conventional means of travel such as this Cyber-Horse. The steed itself, weighing in at 1200 lbs boasts some of the greatest firepower in his arsenal capable of obliterating entire cities (Which can be removed and stored) The horse also boasts a holographic matrix which can disguise it as any native 4 legged steed. The horse can run at speeds in excess of 265 mph and leap nearly 150 yards in a single bound. It cannot fly though it can use a limited boost leap vertically nearly 200 yards. As non-conventional construct the steed cannot be damaged by conventional weapons. It possesses a scanning package that allows it to be used to extend a small scanner's range by a factor of 10. The steed is capable of fighting independent of it's rider and can do considerable damage (like be attacked by a pair of wrecking balls. Obsidian's steed can pulverize non-conventional armored vehicles like paper.   As implied it has organic components in the inner frame, a horse's brain or at least parts of one, Obsidian say this feature is critical to give his steed a measure of unpredictability, instinctiveness, and loyalty you just can't get in an AI the horse's brain is augmented by an advanced AI which allows the steed to communicate effectively with Obsidian...His steed's name incidentally is Onyx.

Species Namae by Spydraxis01
Species Namae
The Namae are thought to believe some offshoot of elf though they lack the pointed ears and extended life spans. They have the same large eyes and facial characteristics common to elves but are otherwise almost identical internally at least, to Solarans. One in every 2,000 Namae have some form of superpower although those with such powers do not tend to live very long as single combat to the death is quite commonplace in their society. Therefore most of the population with superpowers tend to be Teenagers. Their society is one that has embraced technology, Magic, and Martial arts as perfectly as one society can. In most respects day to day life is very similar to the Oni species or the Japanese of ancient Earth. Their government is constantly try to cultivate exceptional members of their society and to that end have created dozens of specialized schools which focus on very specific abilities within a school curriculum. The scientific advancements of the Namae are unparalleled and they excel in combat technologies leading the intergalactic markets in the development and sale of advanced war machines and Mecha. While they have the ability to develop FTL technology there has been little progress due to constant civil wars and various conflicts. Cybernetics are quite common and many of their citizens are Full Body replacement Cyborgs while many other (nearly 12%) are partial replacement recipients. There are in fact whole military and police sections whose members are cyborgs. Cybernetics and internet technologies are incredibly advanced on the Namae world though their technologies are not usually compatible with the Intergalactic Standards and require adapters or translation matrices. For off worlders the Namae home-world is treasure trove of possibilities and often great danger. What few technologies have left their world are often massive ships housing entire cities within and the Namae are quite proud of them.  Their greatest achievement to date is the development of Space-Fold technology although their version is still in it's infancy and doesn't work with the same degree of accuracy and precision as IGFW Military vessels they can still travel vast distances within a Space-Fold bubble as opposed to the Space-fold Gates created by IGFW ships. These bubbles can be harmful to surrounding matter since anything caught within the bubble will be transported along with the vessel.

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.
