Morgan-Ember-The Fun Begins by DarkLordMenchi

I love the sparkles on the skin and the rope work is very well done if its hand drawn, is it? As ever i am fascinated by the shadows, i...


ashinperil has started a donation pool!
2,396 / 2,396
I am hoping that those who view my work will think it worthy of some note. If so and anyone wishes to donate to the total which is the cost of a years premium membership, i would be bloody delirious..

You must be logged in to donate.

A milestone is coming! 60.000 hits must mean that despite my problems of late, most of which are resolved if not cured, sometime there are things we just have to put up with, i am doing something right. I would like to create something to mark that milestone, other people do and i have done the occasional milestone render in the past so why not. Well here is the reason why it won't be happening too soon. 

I am a risk taker and i don't often observe safe surfing, consequently i download a lot of stuff, and have been lucky until recently to have gotten away with it. Last week however i finally got fed up with the increasingly sluggish performance of my machine, and decided to do a clean re instal of OSX. I had tried to do a basic re instal but that made no difference to performance.

Its a complicated ( for me anyway ) procedure. The first step is to copy the operating system to a pen drive. To simplify this i found a programme which created the file i needed to do the instal. The you have to jump through the various hoops that Apple set up to make rebooting difficult for you. All went well until i completed the installation, when i found that my system had been infected somehow, i suspect from the programme i downloaded to create the file to boot from. It meant that any kind of search directed me to ads. It was a nightmare, i spent hours trying to resolve it and eventually had to admit defeat and contact Apple support. Six hours and £40 later a cure was effected and i now have a brand spanking new version of the Mavericks operating system which works like a dream. Yay!!!

Unfortunately my backup external drive was also corrupted, and i cannot use that, in fact its in a bin bag waiting for bin day along with many of my discs containing data. 

End result as far as renders are concerned is that the only record i have of all the renders i created for Deviant are lost, and so is the majority of third party content for Daz Studio. I have to re populate my content libraries on Daz, and organise them, which is a major task, as some of you will appreciate. So its going to take a while, in part because i still need to earn a living, unless some kind soul decides to donate enough money to allow me to retire about 30 years early.

So please enjoy the stuff thats here, and rest assured that i will be creating new renders just as soon as i possibly can.

A huge thank you for your understanding

Some regualr visitors to my place will have noticed that i have been collaborating with jarvik and Danny in the writing and illustrating of a continuing story. This project has become very important to the three of us, and we hope that those of you who read it will enjoy it as much as we have. It would be so nice if, having read either the whole thing currently available, or even just one part, you were moved to comment to one of us, Good or bad, we NEED feedback to encourage us to continue, or if you hate it, to GO AWAY. Thank you so much for reading, follow the link to jarvik for the PDF's of the first two parts.

I'm holding an art contest!  Cash prizes for the two best submissions of my OC characters Fury and Justice Girl in a death trap peril.  Follow the link below to my journal for the details if you are interested.…

What a lovely gift this afternoon, to see another image posted in your gallery…and a really nice one, at that. So good to see you delving back into the visuals.

I did post a 5/1/14 message to you, but otherwise I, too, have been remiss about keeping in contact, and that's not good of me. I am, however, looking forward to conversing with you again…and even on a project? Would be super.

Hope you're well and getting some much deserved respite from all the physical trials and tribulations. (Around here, when people fall prey to that complex of symptoms that you have described, the first question anyone asks is, "Have you been tested for Lyme Disease?") I've gathered up all the best wishes I've been storing in my desk, and now I'm sending them along to you!

Although I'm a confirmed watcher of this gallery, I don't always stop by and catch up with news and journals and such. So I thought I'd take some time to visit, mostly to say "Thank you," for all the creative work you've displayed for us.

So, then, I was thunderstruck to see that you're in the midst of a serious illness. My heart, and my very best wishes (for what they're worth), go out to you. Takes a lot of effort to live the day-to-day stuff when the anxiety of illness floats freely everywhere you are, and I admire that.

I hope, of course, that things turn out well, and that you come back to us healthy and vibrant. Please know that all of us here care about you and send out love to you!
