Hi there, this is a rather quick post and I will attach the important message regarding my brushes to every further journal post, so it is always visible.

Important News regarding my Supporter's Brushsets…

I got to know from colleages in Europe, that the european government is about to let a new law stepping in at the 1st of January 2015. As far as I know, this law is about the taxation of digital sold content to private users. Normally, one would have to apply the taxation law of the country one lives in, but in the future everyone within Europe who sells digital content has to apply the law of the country the customer lives in.
With this being the case it is fairly risky to mess up with any european country's law by accident, and they'd be able to get after you. This is way too scary and I guess I can ditch my plans to sell more brushes in the future on an own website (which has been one of my plans so far).

Due to these circumstances my supporter's brushsets (except the one that is also available for free) will be removed after the 25th of december. If you want to receive my Camelhair Brushset, you still have a chance to do so. But don't worry, my brushsets for support will show up again on another account. My best friend, who doesn't live in Europe, and I already planned to do a collaboration in brush-creation. That way the income will get to her and we can use it to support other artists as well as to fund more brush creation sessions, as it needs lots of time. But sadly, at least until I've figured out how the new law works in combination with me selling some brushes via Deviantart, I cannot continue to host them on my account.

It also means I can forget to sell videotutorials and stuff to become more independent. Politics, aye... fairly much responsible for nonsense in this world.

Some day I might leave this continent, as I have the feel that things start to get out of hand...

Brollonks has started a donation pool!
25 / 800,000
Support for my Brush-Creation.

If you like my brushes, you can support ANY amount of points to make sure I'll find enough time to upload many brushes for free. Keep in mind that 80 points are 1$, so the number might look incredibly high.

In any case:

The points goal doesn't have to be reached, there will be more brushes showing up no matter how much support I get.

-It only depends on the amount of donations how fast they will show up.

Upcoming Brushes:

- Graphitechalk (with blendingbrushes via smudgetool included) - free (in progress)

- New Chalkbrushes (at the planning stage

I appreciate your support and many thanks to all who supported me by purchasing the "Dave's Camelhair Brush Set Eliteversion 2012" Thanks! I am only able to find much more time for new brush-creations because of YOUR help.

You must be logged in to donate.

Thank you for watching me.

You're welcome, I'm glad to see another helpful gallery filled with reference images. :)

Let me know if you need any particular references for things. I'm happy to help.

That's very kind of you. Do you want to receive ideas for collaborations (means that I am requesting particular references that will show up in specific work, which results in your gallery being featured when I upload the work) via note?
It should be better working this way. :) I'll contact you, as I indeed have some need of particular references for my character development.

These characters are knights, assassins, thieves, adventurers, etc. in different situations.

What I am mostly looking for are the poses, so it doesn't require a specific outfit. However, if it's fun for you taking special costumes or clothing for these references - it is fine by me.
