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.

Major Niicola Ire by Spydraxis01
Major Niicola Ire
Okay I won't even lie, this chick is a straight rip on Nick Fury...mostly.  Major Ire is an intelligence officer who works for the black department of the IGFW she has Sentinel status which grants her above the law status in all IGFW systems. She answers directly to the IGFW Congressional council and thus far is one of their best operatives. She has, on occasion acquired the aid of The Scion of Justice, The Magi Council, The Zero-Men and even the mysterious Black Mantis, in order to achieve her goals. She is a true defender of the IGFW charter worlds and ideals and has performed her duties honorably and faithfully for over 175 years. At 200 years of age she accomplished a great deal turning down one promotion after another even a very prestigious position as director of the entire Black Ops division.  She is well informed, highly intelligent, incredibly resourceful and absolutely deadly in combat, to underestimate her is to court death.

PRIDE by Spydraxis01
PRIDE
The P.R.I.D.E. (Haven't come up with a proper acronym yet) is a small group of genetically engineered super soldiers design to handle Paranormal activities, and crimes of a supernatural origin. Composed of 5 members the team's Original leader went rogue due to a genetic marker that was later determined to cause a high degree of insanity resulting in severe psychopathic behavior. Subsequently the leader killed his handler before he could be tested under field conditions. Code Named "Maneater" he is the primary concern of this group. The current roster includes (Pictured from left to right) Cheetah, Jagwire, Panterra, Alleycat, and Tigress, Each member excels in one area of expertise. 

Team Overview, by Director Angella Crosby

Cheetah is incredibly fast achieving land speeds of up to Mach 3 although she is incapable of pinpoint maneuvers restricting her movements to straight lines only.  

Jagwire is physically the weakest member of the group although his armor should more than compensate for this. However, he possesses a high degree of intelligence with an I.Q. measuring around 500 points (A conservative estimate) his current role is the designing of equipment and forensics. 

Alleycat is a brute capable of lifting and estimated 100,000 tons and is invulnerable to all known weapons. He is impervious to all known diseases and viruses and is for intents and purposes indestructible. However, his phenomenal power comes at the cost of intellect having an I.Q. of about 80.  Alleycats learning disability does not translate to combat and he is more than capable of following orders and is utterly fearless in combat situations. 

Tigress is the teams combat leader and instructor she is a more than capable hand to hand combatant trained in over 20 forms of martial arts including, Ninjitsu, Aikido, Tai-Chi, Jeet Kun do, Karate, Tiger style Kung Fu, Savat, Jusjitsu, to name just a few. She is the team's second in command and would be leader if not for her temper and inclination to fly into rages of anger. This may become a problem later however, for now at least she is controllable and this has not interfered with her performance in the field.

Update: The creation of a new leader has been sanctioned and is warranted by the recent assault on the U.N. by "Maneater", resulting in a catastrophic loss of life and the destruction of the U.N. building and everything within 25 miles. The new team leader has been designated "Panterra"

Panterra has been designed (To a degree) to represent the combined abilities of each of his teammates and while he does not outperform each of them in their field of expertise he is outperforms them in every other way.
Speed: While he is not as fast as cheetah he can still attain speeds of up to Mach 1.5 on land and make pinpoint maneuvers. 
Intelligence: While not as intelligent as Jagwire Panterra does boast an I.Q. of 376 and is a more than capable forensic expert.
Strength: Panterra does not possess the phenomenal strength or invulnerability of Alleycat though he is capable of withstanding most attacks utilizing his Adamantine-composite armor. Panaterrea is capable of lifting 15 tons without the assistance of his armor and up to 80 tons with.
Combat: Panterra is clearly no match for Tigress in combat but he is hardly helpless. He has already mastered 12 forms of Martial art including those previously listed under Tigress' entry. 

Panterra has shown none of the side-effects that the "Maneater" project demonstrated and has been judged "a stable and viable subject" it is the recommendation of this office that the team be placed into active service immediately. Further it is the determination of this office that the team should no longer require "Handlers" as they have each clearly demonstrated that they are capable and loyal agents.

Species Heigaran 2 by Spydraxis01
Species Heigaran 2
The Heigaran, are a a species of evolved feline who are one the most technologically advanced species within the five galaxies.  They are most known for their highly advanced cybernetics and power armor which are incredibly powerful by any standards. Heigarans are quite fond of Solarans and Katarans as well as Ailoo and have an uneasy alliance with Lunari and Lycanthos. The average Heigaran stands an impressive 7 feet tall and weighs in around 500-600 lbs. Heigaran society is well a organized Patriarchy with a single Emperor ruling their world Hegarans are quite beastial having Beast like legs Claws and large sharp fangs the later two of which they use with deadly efficiency. Heigarans consider Biting and Clawing to be more than acceptable forms of combat and have been known to hunt with these natural weapons when better weapons are unavailable. Heigaran have an immense sense of personal honor and most can be taken at their word. As one would expect they are easily offended and seek satisfaction for even an imagined slight. Heigaran are also fierce warriors and revel in combat...they are not to be taken lightly when in combat and have perfected it to an art form.

Emt by Spydraxis01
Emt
EMT or Energy Matter Transmission is technology that converts matter into energy which is then transmitted along a beam to be coalesced at the target point. If any obstacle is at the target point already like say s wall, the results can be catastrophic and often fatal. When in doubt one simply has 2 options: Go into the target area via regular routes, or Transmit to the nearest suitable location, folks usually choose the latter. 

In this scene Obsidian and Cobalt (we haven't really seen a lot of Harley) are EMT'd into a starship while travelling through a nebula. Landing on the launch deck they're probably gonna get caught...a damned shame for whoever happens to be catching them...Especially since Harley is sporting his new Cobalt power armor...a damned shame.   

Edit: Effects improved glow rings added to EMT beams at surface contact point, EMT Beam Improved less opaque recolored, fog removed, windows on ships changed to black, glowing effects added to interior lights.

Species Sprite by Spydraxis01
Species Sprite
Sprites are tiny humanoid creatures that have insect-like wings and antenna. They possess magical abilities and are known for their love of practical jokes.They can turn invisible at will and have the ability to cast "Phantom noise" as often as they like. They live in large communities in dense forests where few creatures can venture although it is important to note that when their habitats are destroyed they can and do dwell in modern societies. They are often mistaken for Faeries however, Faeries are half the size of a Sprite and have gossamer wings and calling a Sprite a Faerie is to Sprites, a great insult. Sprites have a non-winged cousin called a Pixie who are otherwise identical in every way. Sprites can fly at speeds up to 25 mph or in short bursts (5 feet or less) of up to 75 mph. Sprites speak the dominant language of whatever world they live on, they use only the most primitive of technologies as they have no forging skills and few technologies are micronized enough for them to use effectively. On the planet D'Enebrius 6 the Sprites there are well equipped to that of the intergalactic standard and have miniature star-ships that are far more powerful then their full sized counterparts. No ship entering into their territory has survived any battle with their tiny fleet and nothing else is know about them as they are extreme Xenophobes.

Well it's been a long time coming but i think I have gone as far as pure talent can take me and it's high past time I went to school. So I have enrolled in the Art Institutes of Pittsburgh to receive my 3D animation certification.  I won't be going for a degree but the course will allow me to use 3ds max, Maya, and Photoshop. Which would put me exactly where I want to be. So wish me luck, I'll be posting assignments as soon as possible.  All other projects will be put on hold until further notice. (Like there were any projects LOL)
This is a clear demonstration of my learning curve...I give you dual layered audio, Multiple Layered Animated objects, Semi-smooth camera operation, and special effects and properly synced. I am in love with this video...and I don't care if I do break my arm patting myself on the back...No Classes, No instruction, No tutoring, just several experiments to find out what can be done. Render time 15 hours, post time 2 hours...A good end result I think for someone who never made a film of any kind before (not including the experiments to get here). If anyone has any tips I ma not so egotistical that I won't accept some constructive criticism.  BTW All the bragging is BS I thank Jehovah god that I am able to learn this fast...and that I have the insight that I do. Thanks to my fans who also support my efforts.

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.
