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.

Spydra by Spydraxis01
Spydra
Spydra is granted the full power of her armor during the "Rise of the Anti-Scion" Her new powers double her strength and grant her optical camouflage, as well as the power to teleport via shadows. The goddess Spydraxis (who shall be making an appearance soon.)unlocked these powers to help battle the threat of Dominion while she cannot directly or indirectly interfere she discovered that she could equip her own Scion any way she chose and for any purpose.

BTW any feedback on the new costume is greatly appreciated.

Species Stakahn 2 by Spydraxis01
Species Stakahn 2
The Stakahn Emirate along with the Sathari Empire and the Hadean Empire, were the instigators of the Millennium Wars. They spread death and destruction across 3 of the five galaxies.  The Stakahn eventually withdrew from the war along with the Sathari leaving the Hadean Empire to suffer the brunt of sanctions a compensation. Additionally, the Hadeans were the only ones found to have broken intergalactic rules of conduct for treatment of prisoners of war making them guilty of war crimes. The Stakahn Emerate managed to escape from the war with few sanctions if any and have a tentative truce with the IGFW and it's allies. The Stakahn themselves are humanoid and roughly the same size and build as Solarans but have greater bone density and redundant organs. This makes them very tough opponents in combat. They enjoy being warriors and have a warrior's code which few seldom violate.

Just made some tweaks to me web site and thought I'd say a word or two about my Graphic Novel "Zero-Men-Rise of the Anti-Scion".  Give it a read if you like and let me know what you think.

Zero-Mech by Spydraxis01
Zero-Mech
Many of the ground battles in the millennium wars were fought with giant robotic vehicles nicknamed "Mechs" which come in a wide variety of shape, sizes, materials, and capabilities. They have replaced the tank in most respects although tanks are still used today as they are cheaper to manufacture than Mechs. Obsidian has one from his days in the millennium wars that has been retrofitted with both magical and technological upgrades. he has named it Harbinger and rarely uses it.  The various systems populated by the Namae have since required him to dust it off and enter it from time to time in their Mech Wars gladiator games. In the last year Harbinger is has remained undefeated in it's weight class.

Dragon Cliff Wyvern by Spydraxis01
Dragon Cliff Wyvern

Cliff dragons are a variety of 2 legged Wyverns that make their lairs inside cliff faces and prefer high precipices from which to view their surroundings. Like the predatory birds of earth they possess remarkable telescopic and polarized vision and are excellent hunters. At a mere 15 feel in length (most of which is neck and tail) they boast a wingspan of 50 feet. They kill their prey by diving from altitudes of about 3000 feet and pouncing with their razor sharp talons. They are very intelligent and while they can be aggressive will take to a rider as long as they are well fed. They are pack oriented often hunting in large groups of up to 15 to take down herd animals (which are their primary diet) by having several pack members swarm around and confuse prey luring them into tight groups where they can be picked off more easily. It is because of this pack mentality that they make some of the best companion steeds among dragon kind. They are true dragons and can breathe fire and as such are immune to even the hottest flames shrugging off even volcanic temperatures. They are not capable of speech but do have a rudimentary for of communication amongst themselves that can be learned if one cares to take the time. Startlingly they can develop a keen understanding of spoken languages without the need for training making them further indispensable as mounts and companions. As semi-sentient creatures they need not be tethered like a common horse or muzzled like other dragons and this feature alone has made them a premier choice for winged mounts. Cliff Dragons come in a variety of colors from the full spectrum of the rainbow and indeed some are specially bred for their colors alone. Unlike steed dragons Cliff dragons can and often do choose self preservation over obeying commands...unless they have been given reasons to be loyal. That means one would be wise to treat their Cliff Dragon well.

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.

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.
