Hey guys!

First I would like to welcome my new watchers who arrived here thanks to my deviation "Graviton", and of course all the others who I haven't welcomed yet!

A few weeks ago my copy of Ballistic Exposé arrived. It's absolutely fantastic! I really didn't expect it to be that huge. Looking through the pages and seeing all those amazing artists in there I realized again it's a great honor to be included. :) Here is my contribution:



I can absolutely recommend you to get a copy of that one if you're a fan of artbooks! 


Now a change of subject: Did you hear about the new "mentions" feature? wreckling.deviantart.com/journ…
I think it's a really interesting update. I'm curious to see how it works! For that purpose I'm making another feature to find out if any of the deviants get notified about it. :D Please let me know. (I hear you must be a beta-tester to be able to receive mentions)

such awesome work! :la:
I saw the mention thing too, curious about if it will be abused or not.  We'll find out :P.

I was thinking the same thing, but for what would you say can it be abused?

I would think someone could tag a bunch of random people (i.e. popular deviants, etc.) in their artist comments and therefore spam them just to get them to look at their stuff?

ErikShoemaker Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
ah yea that's true. I hope there will be a 'report spammer' button for that lol. Well I guess they could also just send notes to the popular deviants, but that's a good point you made. If it really goes downhill there's still the option to remove mentions from the message center, but I hope we won't have to do that.

Haha I hope there's a report spammer button. 
Hopefully, not too many people will abuse it.  I'm glad there's the option to opt out of mentions :).

About the 'mentions' feature, I have it cause I'm a beta tester and it works pretty well! I'm being notified of more stuff that I'm used to, though :D

Thanks for the mention man!
That Exposé book looks so good and inspirational, I'd love to have it in my hands but I think it's a bit expensive to buy it from where I am and there's always a chance that it could never arrive to my house.

ErikShoemaker Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
ohh that sucks man! The book is pretty expensive also for me, I can definitely relate. I only had to pay the shipping costs, so it was a really good deal.
I'm going to Chile (Valparaiso) In October for a couple of weeks (for work), have you by chance been there? :D
Reply
:iconbolv3rk:
Bolv3rk Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
I've to pay like two books at the price of one :/.
No, and Idk how Chile being so near to Argentina isn't a common place to visit.
What are you going to do there? Some conferences?

ErikShoemaker Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
well I guess it's just not that interesting for you..? :D I haven't been to most of our neighbor countries, either, I must say! Anyway, I was just guessing, maybe you could have recommended something. 8-) I'm working with someone there at the university for a research project.
