Well, round three of The Book Of Stories proved to be my last. It was close though. The two-person collaberation that beat me went on to win the entire contest. Go check out
- they're both worth it!
Aside from entering a Dragon Age OC contest I haven't really kept up with DA this year. I'm happy with the few pieces I've done, but there haven't been enough. More work and a hectic life have been the major culprits but it's also been the case that the key creative pieces I've been failing to get on with are non-DA in nature. On the slim chance that you've been missing your Kingspikearcher updates, I should invite you to check out the blog I've started here: [link]
One thing I have done this year is to organise my existing galleries by subject matter. I've also got a 'Very Favourites' gallery now, since my Favourites are now too numerous to function as a recommendation to others the way I want them to. To qualify as a Very Favourite the work needs to be something that I'm still thinking about days after hitting the Favourite button.
The sub-division of my gallery means that I now have a 'BDSM' section. With nearly 2000 views between the features pieces, I guess I'm pretty much as 'out' as it gets on here. That's actually been a pretty lengthy and beneficial process all told.
Unfortunately I can't say that it's been a perfect year for me on DA. Only a short time after I created the sub-galleries I had a fellow Christian accusing me of sexual sin, and I've had a long and bitter debate with a certain other deviant over his claims that every heterosexual male dom on Earth is a 'ball-less, egotistical sonofabitch who is not worth a hunk of tuburcular spit' and should ideally be executed for their crimes against their brainwashed victims. I've also had far more positive discussions in note form with other people, but it did sour my experience a tad.
Here's to a better fifth year!
