High Highs and Low Lows...
  2017 has been a year of High highs, and very Low lows...but I keep on truckin', and will go on to better things.
But in general, 2017 has sucked muy mucho, but hopefully that's in life's rear view mirror, and through struggle, determination, and no small amount of faith will continue the climb up.
On the suck wagon side is DEATH. My father, whom I haven't visited with in years...and that bad is on me...passed away early this year.  I only wished I had an opportunity to have talked with him, but sadly dementia and distance prevented that from happening. How much I wanted to tell him how important he really was to me, and how now I understand his wisdom, and love. 
At about the same time, Kyla, the beautiful and soulful she-wolf and mate to my sweet Togo died.  She was old and had health problems and despite my efforts to revive her, she died in my arms. Her owner, my buddy PH, was totally heartbroken but he's got her and Togo's progeny and grandbabies.  She wa

Gun Drone OBJ
For your sci-fi needs. This model really, really requires the normal map to be applied in order to look half-decent.

My work on DA is part of several "crafts" that I pursue where I don't paywall content. Over the last while, some of you may have noticed that I've explicitly added licensing to my submissions which allow for anyone to use anything for anything, for free. The whole point of this is to help create more opportunities for art to flourish.

If you think that's an interesting idea, please take note that I'm funded through Patreon and looking for additional support. If all of my watchers went in for "$1/ thing, capped at $5/ month," the effect would be huge.

Hi All.

I feel a bit self-conscious posting this here, because I've let this account "slip" a bit. I'm not nearly as active on DA as I used to be, mostly because other things have chewed up a lot of time.

Even so, I do have this latent desire to carve out some more "visual art" space in my life.

Anyway.

When it all comes down to it, whenever I've done something that I felt was worthwhile, what it all came down to was helping other people create their own art. The whole "commercial success" thing - prints, commissions, etc - has never gone my way. So, instead of pursuing that route some more, I figured I'd take a stab at the "patronage" model. It's only fair to say that I've lumped everything that I do into one campaign, so supporting me means supporting material that's about the musical arts as well as the visual ones. Maybe the tolerating of that is a lot to ask for, or maybe it isn't.

I don't know.

In any case, if you have any interest in supporting my quest to "make it economically viable to create free resources for people," then my campaign is here: www.patreon.com/danielmaland
