A small favor

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 3, 2017, 1:16 AM
Hi everyone! Some of you might already know this - my main job is a teacher. Our school took part in an art contest and a project made by 3 children (10-13 years old) made it into a second round - the theme is "A heart given by angels". I don't force anyone to vote - if you are interested only:
Visit: srdce.age-management.cz/soutez…
and if you like the artpiece (a sculpture), hit the red button with the heart symbol and words 'DAT HLAS teto soutezni praci' - no registration needed.
Thanks!

A decade...

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 31, 2016, 8:38 AM
A decade ago I used to wear long hair...
A decade ago I didn't need to wear glasses to watch a movie in a cinema...
A decade ago I lived with my parents...
A decade ago I didn't know anything about women...
A decade ago I made my first space art...
...and started my deviantArt profile as JoeJesus.

Now, I still don't know anything about women and I'm still here on dA. At least everything else has changed :D

Facebook artist profile page with WIP's...

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 18, 2016, 9:44 AM
Yeah, the title is self-explanatory, I'm just trying to open a path to a regular/non-artistic populace, nothing time demanding and I won't be putting unfinished stuff here on dA (I don't like the scraps section too much - nobody watches it anyway). So, if you'd like to see minor sketches, WIPs and other stuff:
www.facebook.com/JoeJazzCZ/

And I really need to finish some other promo stuff before people strt thinking I'm not active anymore - trust me, I am but I'm just in the middle of a more hectic portion of my life. Joey out...

The first video with some of my artpieces... ...it's animated and took just a few hours to render... ...I hope it will get better with more experience, it's not bad but I need to work on the synchronization with music and overal pacing - this one is rather on the ambient side.

ArtStation

Journal Entry: Mon May 23, 2016, 9:21 AM
I'm slowly establishing a profile on another site - ArtStation.
Don't worry, I'm not leaving dA any time soon but the difference of quality of the art here and there is just abysmal - when you look
at the dA main page, you'll mostly see soft-porn, mediocre, journal bullsh*t and other pieces that really shouldn't be the staple of what people can do here.
If you look at the main page of AS, what you'll see is just awesome - I get inspired and motivated just by logging there and I spend ludicrous amount of time
by browsing the awesome pieces that are shown on the main page. It's like dA 7 years ago. Anyway - here is the profile if you want to follow and/or have your own profile there
so I can check yours:

Patreon

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 26, 2015, 1:06 PM
So, I have started my Patreon profile. At this point it's just a simple "pledge something if you care" page. As you know, I provide wallpapers for free (even though it's only for your personal use), I don't even put watermarks over my art, so you don't have to send me anything. However, I plan to evolve the whole campaign into some sort of "art for a request" project and if I get enough devoted fans, maybe make some small profit when I'm at it. However, I might decide to add a tutorial or two (since every once in a while someone asks me how I do this and that) for those who pledge themselves to me (just not now - wait untill I give you a go). If you have any ideas about what goals / campaigns I should include in the Patreon go ahead and put them in the comments below.

Oh, and here is the link: www.patreon.com/joejazz?ty=h

Look what I found...

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 7, 2015, 11:38 AM
I was dusting off my old favourites and found this!
We Are Space Art by FacundoDiaz
We Are Space Art by FacundoDiaz (great thanks to you)

Reminds me of days back in the past when we all shined! Sh*t, some of those guys are not even active anymore (or dev-active)... 
Time flies but the art fortunately stays - anyone reading this - if you like space art and are new (relatively - 3 years and younger), go there and see all the art made by these other folks (some of which you might already know).

Friend Feature

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 17, 2015, 12:06 AM
So, finally my friend has reached deviantart - well, first he had to go through a lot of adventures, wonderous battles, creepy dungeons and some festivals... ...to decide to leave us (well, I don't blame him) and move to New Zealand. He has always been a good photographer but only Hobbits could teach him how to properly enjoy simple nature and, y'know, easy stuff - go there, enjoy his gallery, you should like what you'll find there - I know I do (and I know he has tons of stuff to add yet).

Idea

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 2, 2015, 4:18 PM
I think I make my own comic - It's going to be a mix of Firefly, my space art, Star Wars and fantasy stuff... ...the main character is going to be a combination of Peter Quill and Tony Stark with some pokemon beast that's actually more intelligent (but really enjoys placing protagonist  in undesirable events) than the main character. Genre - comedy/action drama. Expected to be released - my funeral.

12th DD and DDD (rant with some strong language)

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 21, 2014, 12:04 PM
So, one of my recent pictures received a DD today:
Frontier Skies by JoeyJazz

Big thanks goes to Ginryuzaki for the suggestion and and TehAngelsCry for the feature. Love you both! :hug:

Now for the rant, shall we? Why is it called DDD? It stands for "dead daily deviation".
You might think "pff, of course it's dead for you - you've got 11 already".
Well, that's not the reason. I am happy for each and every one of them
and I am thankful to those who provided them. I am always super-excited
when I get one... ...or I should say I was. Since the new design has been
introduced, the daily deviations have lost almost any point. Back then, I used to
be amazed by all the nice feedback, favs, number of views and exposition it
provided. Each and every DD I recieved was viewed by app. 10-15k times,
faved by around 1200 people, recieved around 100 comments and my
profile page got visited by 1500-2000 visitors on the day it was displayed.
This last daily deviation (yeah I know it's been there for just 12 hours, but you can do the
count) recieved around 160 faves, 1300 views and ..moment of patience.. 2 comments
from which one was a spambot.
Now I checked all the other daily deviations for today - there were only 23, which is
usually a good sign for exposition (I am used to be one of 40) - and it's always
the same story - around 1500 views for today, 80 to 120 faves and a few comments,
those that have more had received those earlier when they got on the main page.
This is by the way the case of my "Frontier Skies" DD for today - it was
displayed on the main page for about 12-14 hours (6h on most popular for the last 8
and the rest was spent in the section for the most popular for the last 24 hours)
and it recieved 5 times more attention on the old design on 5th October.
In short and with the famous words by Angry Joe (not me):
"DA, you done fucked it up!"
No, seriously, do something about the exposition because now the DDs
are pointless. When I visit dA main page, the only thing I can see is what's hot, which
really doesn't excite me because of redtube (you know what I mean) and which
gives exposition for the same images for the last 3-5 days. It's fucking annoying.
At least put those DDs back in the footer, so no-one else has to suffer like we do.
Look, I have recieved quite a lot of attention already. I'll leave to you whether
it's deserved or not but it's one of the main reasons I'm here - exposition.
I don't give a fuck about social networks - I already have a facebook profile.
And I think that many artists feel the same - we are insecure creatures, we'd like
to post the image, reply to comments, get attention/praise/critique and move on.
I know there are people that are more connected with dA headquarters who watch
me and they might listen at least to a bit and might be more reasonable.
Your new system doesn't work.. ..it's fucked... ...got it? Good! End of rant...

A big thanks goes to :iconmmkaay: for the suggestion and of course to :icontehangelscry: for the actual feature.

It's the start of the new tenfold :D ...so here is to another one :beer: !

Fantasy stuff

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 19, 2014, 9:08 AM
In other words - dragooons!.. ..ehm
Okey - only two remaining to finish my 12 dragon virtues collection. After that I'm going to adjust some of the older ones and maybe redraw/heavily adjust some of those that were poorly executed (imho - I don't like Fatality and Magic too much, so I might take a different approach towards them). And yes - they are going to form a callendar (2015 I guess - so, yeah, plenty of time to wait :D ).
I agree that my digital painting skills might not be on the same level as my space art abilities (don't worry - you know there will always be some space here and there), but the difference between the number of views per fantasy image and the number of views for each space art is ridiculous - like five times. Didn't know my watchers were that selective :D . Yes, it's a rant of sorts - because it takes me around 3-4 hours (MAX) to finish average space scene (some might take around 8 but those are experiments with a lot of stuff in them) and (gasp) around 8-10 hours per each digital painting (okey, I've managed to reduce the dragon head technique to about 5-7 hours of pure time but still). Even that friggin fish noticed some more success (again - 3 hours of work) - creating wallpapers of them might help I guess, huh?
Anyway - here they are again - let me know which of these you like the most, the last two remaining are Honor (silver, heavily armoured) and Speed (blue-ish, agile).
Spirit by JoeyJazz Wisdom by JoeyJazz Pride by JoeyJazz
Stealth by JoeyJazz Sinew by JoeyJazz Power by JoeyJazz
Magic by JoeyJazz Patience by JoeyJazz Fatality by JoeyJazz
Life by JoeyJazz

I might (I will) create some more of them even after I finish this collection - I kinda got used to it.

Summer Feature II

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 27, 2013, 11:04 AM
Aaaand, let's continue!

Casperium
Let's start with another of those more famous deviants. She's been around for some time and she's always been supportive (more so when it comes to art thefts and such). Furthermore.. ..to not feature her would be a sin against space art community :D
Cortina Nebula by Casperium

JukEboXAuDiO
One of the most active writers when it comes to my pieces. His favourites gallery is well sorted and contains many cool pictures (and a lot of my stuff :D ).
jukeboxaudio.deviantart.com/fa…

wuestenbrand
Enthusiastic commentator and a flower enthusiast o.O Yeah, that sentence was wierd, but his gallery is not.. ..it's actually quite good (when it comes to flowers (and other stuff)). Go check him out!
Blossom 17 by wuestenbrand

Orange-1
One of the (or maybe THE ONE) most frequent watchers to appear below any of my pictures. From what I can tell he makes interesting music as well as some really nice 3D fractals.. ...cool stuff!
Marbles IV by Orange-1

MetalSnail
When it comes to my latest deviations, he's been around almost every single one. What is more interesting though, is the fact that he has one of the best galleries I've seen - both drawings and sculptures (my favourite) look freaking good!
Abe by MetalSnail

Another 5 next week!

Summer Feature

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 24, 2013, 3:16 PM
I haven't done this for like... ...ages. However, these are going to be a bit special - I know there are people who often comment on my pieces (even though I don't always respond), feature me or just help me out in other areas and there is a lot of them. So, I've decided to feature the most 'faithful' of you - I'll do it in waves, since proper feature shouldn't be too large (imho - those 40 picture walls are nice but I do it this way - more exposure for the displayed). Don't be scared for not being here right away - your time might come later.

priteeboy
Well, what to say - you probably all know him - he likes to comment and he likes it A LOT. And he also watches me for quite some time (time, when my piceces sucked... ...they actually still suck.. ..only less :D ). So, well deserved feature.
Summer Paradise by priteeboy

QAuZ
This guy never misses a chance to somehow feature my pieces and even managed to suggest some DD here and now - I say "Good Job!". Keep up the community work!
Shining Through by QAuZ

Scorpidilion
Another of my long-time watchers - I think he is among first 20 .. I can't tell for sure, since clicking through the list of 8000 is a bit boring (yeah, dA allows to see 200 watchers per page, sorted by the newest only.. ..duh). Anyway - he has some reaaally nice photographs - go check it out!
Fisherman by Scorpidilion

tetriarch
This guy comments on all of my pieces (I mean it - go see any of my newer pieces and you'll find him there). And I know, there are many of you - don't worry, I'll put you up in some of the next features.
Symphony of Freeze and Blaze by tetriarch

Aine-san
This one is special, since she often helps me find out about my art being used somewhere without me knowing it.. ..so, thx for heads up!
<da:thumb id="123545133"/>

And if you don't have anything in your gallery (you're just an art enthusiast), don't worry, I'll just tell people of your great taste and point them to your favourites ;)

Once in a while a rip.. ..or maybe not

Journal Entry: Fri May 10, 2013, 3:44 AM
I know, I know - it's getting repetitive. This time, I don't deal with my own art being ripped however (I try to solve my own stuff in a hitman style - aim and shoot, no questions, no remorse). This time it is more interesting and I'm actually curious about how to deal with this stuff.
Case: Subject claims that he has a permission to re-post the image. What he does is re-sizing the original image for wallpaper purposes (the success is disgusting but people download it, tasteless as they are) and releasing it with a link to the original source (if there is an artist, he points at him/her).
Problem: The original author is not active anymore (at the moment) or is entirely uknown. Subject claims he asked for the permission and in the meanwhile uploads the picture anyway - cause without the original artist being able to respond, current dA policy favours the ripper.
Solution: I have no idea. I've reported several of the pictures I'm sure that belong to companies like Marvel (and I'm pretty sure they don't give permissions on daily basis). However, I'm positive that you can't post a picture unless you have the actual permission (as an answer to the demand) and not just if you asked (even politely).
Anyway - look for yourself (and observe the actual behavior of the subject): tommospidey.deviantart.com/gal…
