Something Ate My Alien

Wed Sep 13, 2017, 5:13 AM


Something Ate My Alien


I can finally reveal what I have been up to lately, I've been working extremely hard on a 2D digging, puzzle game for PC with my partner Rob and it is called "Something Ate My Alien" or S.A.M.A. for short.

As the only artist in our 2 man team "RoKabium Games" I have done every artwork and design in the game including things such as sprites, UI, player, logo, backgrounds etc.

SAMA


We are so excited to have reached a point in our development where we feel it is time to show you all our progress and to start spreading the word about SAMA. We still have more development left before being ready for Beta release of the game, but if you are interested in keeping an eye on our progress and want to know more about this fun new game soon to be released, then head over to our websites and have a look, share, like and so forth. Check the links below to find us:







Feel free to join our forums and get involved in helping us with feedback and make sure to subscribe to our newsletter so you don't miss out on updates, news and testing opportunities during development.  

Below you can find our Dev trailer which is showing you a bit about the game and how it looks so far:

Stock rules



As most of you already know I offer stock photos to be used by fellow artists and creatives both here under my stock name CAStock and from my own stock site www.ca-stock.com .

:bulletblue: I have one clause that concerns my premade backgrounds. This stock can not be used to make other stock.

:bulletblue: Always credit me where possible. I understand that when you go commercial or start posting portfolios and such on other sites it is not always possible, but if you can, please do.

:bulletblue: You can use my stock as part of tutorials. This means that you are allowed to give links for direct download of my stock in the tutorial-set or include my stock as part of the download package of the tutorial. In other words, you may redistribute my stock as stock in tutorials as long as you credit me so people can see where the stock came from and what rules apply to it.

My new artist stock site is ready for you!

My new artist stock site is ready!


There is some exciting news I wanted to share with you fellow artists, friends and visitors.

Ever since I went down the path of becoming a digital artist I started collecting photos from everyday life and travels to be able to use these photos in my art projects. As the years has gone by I have gathered a stock library of more than 60 000 photos and still counting. I’m sharing around 1000 of them for free here on deviantArt so that others like myself, can use them for creating artworks.

I know full well how expensive it can get to try and buy stock images from the big stock sites and most of the time I’ve ended up using what I can find from other generous artists and photographers here on dA instead. But sometime you just need that one image you can’t find anywhere except from some expensive site where you need to sign up for a monthly subscription or do some other kind of huge payment to be able to access it. For a lot of art students, hobby artists and even professional artists that is a huge expense that they cannot afford.

So I’ve decided to put up around 35 000 of my photos on my own stock site which is dedicated for artists and students or anyone that need very affordable stock images for using in artworks, designs and other art projects. The whole purpose of my stock site is that you do not need to have a subscription to buy any image, they are all charged a measly $1 flat fee per image and you buy as you go. The reason I have to charge a small amount per image is that it has taken a lot of work to get this site running, and every month it costs me money to run it. To be able to afford sharing my own personal stock library with all of you I have to charge something to cover that cost.

Please head over to my stock site  CA-Stock.com and have a look around. Perhaps you’ll find some images you need in your next project, or perhaps you'll find some photos that will inspire you to create your next masterpiece! 

Keep creating, never stop creating and much love to you all :heart: 


Premium Stock

In my new endeavours of working with all of my art full time I'm looking into trying to get any income from all sources more carefully. So I'm finally sorting out my Exclusive stock that until now has only been available to buy via paypal and then noting me which I know is a slow and quite outdated system.

But now I am finally getting all the previous packs up in single images and you can purchase just one photo if you wish, no need to buy a whole pack. Also with this new system you can purchase the stock image you want directly from dA with points, so you can download and access it straight away. No waiting several days to get your image, just click the "purchase button" next to the relevant image and start creating your artwork instantly!

NEW RULES APPLIED AGAIN - PLEASE READ
I'm terrible at playing catch up with my stock account, i just honestly do not have the time any more with a full-time job and projects on the side too. So to make things very simple, deviantARTs new "mention" system has made it easy for me to change my rules to that WHEN YOU POST YOUR ART CONTAINING MY STOCK ON DEVIANTART, THERE IS NO NEED TO LET ME KNOW, I get notified anyway :) If you post outside dA I still need a little comment or note about it since I won't see it otherwise.

AND I'M REALLY HAPPY!
It has already been a year and my travelling adventure backpacking around the globe has come to an end! Even though I had a great year full of wondrous things and meeting so many people and seeing a lot it feel great to be back home again. I have tons of new stock and i will proceed in uploading as much as i possibly can asap :heart:

How are you all?? How has the last year been treating you?? I've missed you all and I will start the process of going through all... 693 PAGES of comments and notifications of stock use :faint: It might take a while.. :lol:

Travel blog is live!

Travel blog

As most of you know by now I'm currently backpacking around the world with my amazing guy, so stock and comments from my side are sparse until i get back next year!

We have finally finished our travel blog where we will update our travels and upload photos, so if you are curious where I'm at at the moment....have a look:

:iconcheerplz:www.darkblueplanet.com/travel:iconcheerplz:

Hope to see you there!!


Moved country!


It all happened rather quickly, but all of a sudden me and my man found ourselves leaving the UK for the sun in Spain :) The fact is that we are going away on some major travels around our beautiful planet and until we leave we needed to get some sun, relax and plan it all and we decided that sitting in cloudy Wales or Costa del Sol to do it, was not a hard choice to make!

So some big changes are happening for me lately and this will affect my presence here in dA for the next year or so. But it doesn't change anything for you guys more than the fact i wont be in here as much. You can still use all my stock in ANYTHING you like as long as you do not reproduce or distribute the images as is. See my full rules further down in this journal please!!

I will take as many photographs that my hard memory cards will allow during my travels and i will upload MEGA bunches of stock during travel (if possible and i can) but otherwise when i get back. So stay tuned :D

If you need to get a hold of me urgently, please email me at info@cassiopeiaart.com . If you are unsure how to use my stock, please read my rules at the bottom of this journal.

Take care everyone and keep creating all the fab art that you do. Thank you for your constant support and keep linking me those artworks! I might be late seeing them, but i still love looking what happens to my stock :love:

Spring? Yes please :)


Today the first midges arrived so within a few days we should have an insect infestation here. They might be annoying little buggers, but them being around means that spring is here so it's all good!

(Tip: If you don't like millions of midges buzzing around you when you go outside in spring, don't live in Cardiff bay :giggle: )

I'm back from my trip home to Sweden to visit family and friends and i had a great time. I've filled up on proper, rye bread and I took lots of photos but mostly of my little nephew... So there is not much new stock I'm afraid.

But fear not, looks like me and my guy will be moving shortly and who knows what great new stock i can find to take photos of on the way? :)

Now off you go and create some fab art!!! :blowkiss:

Make sure to visit my art account too :iconcassiopeiaart:


Travelling home
I just wanted to update all my lovely watchers and visitors to this stock account that i will be away on travels to see family and friends in Sweden for the next 2 weeks. I will still check dA every now and then but if you need to contact me urgently i suggest you write to my email instead: info@cassiopeiaart.com See you soon again!

:heart::heart::heart:

Thank you!

My deepest THANK YOU to all of you watchers and visitors who comes by this stock account. I cannot believe how much support I got for this account and I'm so glad that my stock can help artists of all kinds in their creative process. I love seeing what you create so keep sending those links :love:



Changes - important
The overwhelming respond and use of my stock since i opened this account has left me with a huge smile and happy feelings deep inside! But for a year now i have been falling behind more and more in posting comments on the work that you all have done using my stock. It has reached the point where my 2 accounts on dA together with my business, life and work takes every bit of time that i can spare.  So to be able to cope i am changing my rules slightly and i hope you understand.

The only difference is that I can no longer promise to comment on your artwork when you leave a link.

I will when time allows still try and comment on a few but from now on I simply do not have enough time. I will however still fave all the work you notify me of so it can s till be viewed through this account for some extra exposure. :heart:

I love looking at the artwork you create, so please feel free to still send me your links, it makes me very happy :love:

The judging of the "Grimm fairytale contest" is still going on. I'm eagerly waiting the results of 1 more judge before I can post the results. Please be patient and good luck everyone! :eager:

Changes - important
The overwhelming respond and use of my stock since i opened this account has left me with a huge smile and happy feelings deep inside! But for a year now i have been falling behind more and more in posting comments on the work that you all have done using my stock. It has reached the point where my 2 accounts on dA together with my business, life and work takes every bit of time that i can spare.  So to be able to cope i am changing my rules slightly and i hope you understand.

The only difference is that I can no longer promise to comment on your artwork when you leave a link.

I will when time allows still try and comment on a few but from now on I simply do not have enough time. I will however still fave all the work you notify me of so it can s till be viewed through this account for some extra exposure. :heart:

I love looking at the artwork you create, so please feel free to still send me your links, it makes me very happy :love:

Contest time!

It's time for my yearly contest and this year I have followed the poll result from you guys to inspire what theme to host. The theme in the poll that won was fairy tales, legends and myths so I picked fairy tales.

There are loads of nice prizes too, keep reading this journal and get started with creating those awesome entries! :eager: :iconcheerplz: :boogie: :love:


Theme

We have all surely heard, read or being told fairy tales as a part of growing up, and some of the classic fairy tales has survived literally hundreds of years being as popular today as they were back in the days they were written.

Two of the classic masters of fairy tales were the Grimm Brothers who published more than 200 stories and among them some of the most famous classic fairy tales to this day.

Now what would have had happened to the stories if the Grimm Brothers would have written them in a different and jumbled up way? Would Little Red Riding Hood actually be Cinderella looking for her grandma in the castle village where she encountered a bad wolf? Or would The Frog Prince actually be the "small" Beast in Beauty and the Beast? Or would perhaps the Town Musicians of Bremen be the three bears from Goldilocks looking through the window of a gingerbread house from Hansel and Gretel? Each and every fairy tale we read today could have been different. What new stories would emerge if two or more fairy tales were combined?


Submission details

This contest will focus on 10 of the most well-known of the Grimm Brothers Fairy tales and your task is to combine 2 or more of the stories in this list to make an amazing piece of artwork picturing a unique new Grimm Fairy Tale.

(Each story has a direct link to the fairy tale in case you want to know what the story is about. The links are not any official publishing and the version of the stories may be slightly different from the original stories. They are merely a help to get an overview of each story for your creative process.)

Little Red Riding Hood (Little Red Cap)
The story of the three bears (Goldilocks)
Cinderella
Beauty and the beast
Town Musicians of Bremen
Little Snow white (Snow white and the 7 dwarves)
Sleeping beauty
Hansel and Gretel
Rapunzel
The Frog Prince(The Frog King)

Choose 2 or more of the fairy tales from the list and combine them into an artwork depicting a scene from the new type of fairy tale those stories would form. You can combine them in any way you like, It can be anything from the tales themselves, a specific scene or moment in the story, or a more conceptual approach to it. The more unique and creative approach you have to creating this scene and combining the stories, the better.

You can enter as many times as you like but remember that the judges will look at quality and originality before anything else. Also remember that each entry must depict something from at least TWO of the fairy tales.  You can only win once so if one of your images gets the 1st place for example, all your other entries cannot qualify for more placements.

New stock packs

I'm sure some of you have noticed already but I'm in the process of updating and replacing most of my stock packs. Many of my older ones just don't get any interest these days and the whole design for them feels a bit outdated. I have decided to renew them all which unfortunately will cause some problems if you have faved these older packs. My apologies for the missing links that will soon come once i remove the old ones. :blushes:

The new packs that will replace all old style ones are of 2 sorts: Exclusive packs for purchase and Prize Packs for contest prizes. Some for the Prize Packs are already up, go check them out! :D The other packs will come up shortly so keep your eyes out! There will be lots of new stock in these, but some of the older and more popular ones too.



Concept World stock packs - enjoy!

I have been putting together some brand new and different stock packs as part of a collab with ConceptWorld . The packs are collections of photos suitable for concept art but anyone who want them can have them. These stock packs are free for download, they come with the same unrestricted rules as the rest of my stock :D Check them out:

Winners of Another Universe contest

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 10, 2010, 7:36 AM
For my art account please visit :iconcassiopeiaart:

Congratulations to the winners

Wow, there was so many absolutely beatiful entries, the quality overall was amazing and I want to thank each and everyone of you who participated for your efforts. I have judged each entry looking at the three critera I stated in the rules; creativity, sticking to the theme (relevance) and quality (visible time and effort put in), and as also stated in the rules; skill-level has NO importance in this contest. So without further ado, here the winners:

:trophy::winner: First place - IsraLlona :winner::trophy:

A Bridge Between Worlds by IsraLlona

Motivation for winning: The realization of the space ship as a living breeding thing, and the details to make it so beliavable are astonishing. Everything about this work, from the designed logo for Explorer Inc, to the creature standing on top of the space ship, to the organic look of the limbs despite being a machine is no less than a perfect interpretation of the theme. The dimensional shift being like rings on water is also a truly unique approach and very successful one.


:trophy: Second place - Firnadi :trophy:

Finding new home by Firnadi

Motivation: An absolutely beautiful take on a planet far, far away. The colour scheme is wonderful leading the viewer into a world full of life and warmth, looking so familiar still so foreign, leaving one to wonder what amazing creatures can be found in this unexplored, beautifully detailed world.


:trophy: Third place - starlight2infinity :trophy:

Guardians of the Rift by starlight2infinity

Motivation: The bright colours and perfect balance instantly draw the viewer in to have a closer look. The unique and very innovative take on the actual travel between universes in the dimensional shift is fantastic, and the idea is very beauitfully done oozing a magical, out-of-this world feel.


:trophy: Fourth Place - GingerKellyStudio :trophy:

Far From Home by GingerKellyStudio

Motivation: An absolutely fascinating spot in a world far away, this higly detailed work of a planet with both familiar and very alien creatures and landscape is a fantastic take on the theme. The ships details are flawless, having a very organic yet steampunk feel, fitting perfectly with the pilot looking out over the landscape pondering over this never before seen world.


:trophy: Fifth Place - Renegade-Angel23 :trophy:

:thumb164030906:

Motivation: A beautifully detailed work of an alien creature, sitting majestically in a lush landscape full of plants and life. The efforts put into the creature and it's surroundings are clearly visible, with all that fur painstakingly detailed and the dragon-like end in a fab blue shine, who knows what other mystical life forms can be found in this world?

Another Universe - Another World contest

Theme:  The year is 3876. You have travelled through the dimensional shift in one of the amazing ships designed by the famous ‘Explorer Inc’ factory in Grande Berlin and entered a parallel universe riddled with galaxies of all forms and sizes. The ship you’re in are something out of this world, a true explorer of the unknown, being almost unknown itself, partly living, partly machine, taking you to territories never visited. And now, in this new universe it seems the worlds waiting to be explored are found in their millions; stars and supernovas, planets and moons, asteroids and strange light phenomena’s are all around you. You decide to do a quick survey of the nearest solar system to see if any life forms might be existing on any of the terrestrial bodies, and if there is life, how advanced is it? The worlds you are about to visit will prove to be something you could never imagine even in your wildest dreams, filled with fantastical sceneries and weird and sometimes dangerous life forms and environments but also full of so much beauty and signs of lost civilisations and ancient relics . Filled with excitement and joy over this unexplored universe, you set out to explore as many worlds and galaxies you can.

Entries:  Your task will be to create one or several artwork/s depicting anything from this travel to a different universe; entering the dimensional shift, the universe itself, the spaceship in which you travel, a solar system, a world you visited on a planet, moon or asteroid, life forms encountered. Anything within the parameters of the above story line is accepted, imagination is the limit.

Deadline: Contest entries are accepted between 3rd of March 2010 until Midnight GMT on the 3rd of June 2010.

The Rules:

:bulletgreen:This contest is open for both traditional and digital media entries as long as it contains my stock in some way. You are allowed to use my stock as reference, but it needs to be clear which stock has been used. (Sorry no photography or written entries allowed.)
:bulletgreen:Send your entry/ies to me by note only.
:bulletgreen:Make sure to credit all stock used and follow the rules that might come with the stock you use.

Judging: I will be judging the entries looking at 3 criteria; creativity (interpretation and idea of your artwork) sticking to the theme and quality (as in well thought through and visible time put in to create your artwork). This means that anyone one who has a good idea for an artwork sticking to the theme and also put in the time, effort and thought into their entry, has an equal chance of winning despite skill level.

Wow


I'm back from the trip to Hawaii and to sum up this awesome holiday; I SAW LAVA!!! That kind of says it all, at least since seeing flowing lava has been one of my dreams come true being a somewhat geological nerd :D I have as promised taken loads of photos that I know will start to sift through and upload. There will be lots of landscape shots from rainforests, mountains, valleys, hills, desert, lava fields, beaches, coast lines etc. Also i saw that i still haven't uploaded some kite shots from my last trip to Brecon beacons national park as i promised, so they will be uploaded as well.

And as you can imagine i have quite a few notes and comments to go through to see all the fab art you've made while i've been gone, so please have patience if you are waiting for a reply, i will get to it asap :heart:

Oh glorious Wales


Wow, so much visitors the last weeks from Sweden, and we have explored Wales by car. And WOW, I didn't realize it was this magnificant and beautiful just 45 minutes drive from where I live nowdays :omg: I've been taking loads of photos from Brecon Beacons National park, so expect some uploads of mountain panoramas and flying red kites soon! (More birds, I know.. ;))




You are much loved and appreciated


I haven't enough time these days to individually thank each and every one of you that faves or watches me, I do however appreciate it enormously and want you to know that you are much loved for your support. Thank you from the bottom of my heart :love:

Keep sending me links to your works, it's a joy to look through them every time and seeing all the incredible art that you do and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. For me as a stock photographer there is nothing more gratifying than seeing what you can create using my stock! And if you tell me about your work you've done using my stock I will always take time to comment and fave as a thank you :heart:
