Ok, a while back I made a journal entry of how I about to make my 500th Deviation here:   500th Deviation[][][][][]UPDATE[][][][][]
Well isn't this twitchier than a bucket of hiccuping weasels….  I make this journal to help celebrate my impending 500th Deviation and lo and behold it says I already have 500 deviations.  The hell?!  I open the detailed statistics and it says I have only 465 Deviations… and 35 Journal entries.  So, even though they aren't Deviations, aren't called Deviations and aren't even in the same category, journal entries are secretly counted as Deviations.  What a load of dingo's kidneys!  So there goes my great 500th celebration… to which I say what I've always said:
Screw round numbers.
I'm going to still ask for your input on what celebratory pic four-hundred-whatever-it-is. Please consider what I originally wrote below and come up with what you think the best pic to make to celebrate whatever number we choose to celebrate.
Hello my friends!   I hadn't really looked at my stats for a while and


As I had updated there I didn't realize that journal entries were considered to be deviations.   Though I also write, my forte here is the artwork, so that's what I recognize for the count.  Minus the journal entries I still had 35 pieces of art to go.  No longer.  The next art I post will mark my 500th Deviation as far as I'm concerned, so as before I open it up to all of you.  To quote:

"...I'd like to open things up to see what you think number 500 should be.  After all, without all of your support and interest in my works, I wouldn't be at such a momentous occasion.

Those of you who know my works and style, please post your thoughts on what I should create.  If you're new to my gallery, please feel free to explore and I hope you find it to your liking.  If so I'd love to hear your suggestions as well!"

As before I still thank you all once again for encouraging my behavior and I look forward to seeing your ideas. Again thank you all for giving me the drive to make this possible :)

NICELabs's Profile Picture

Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
Known as Niceman in certain circles. That reminds me... if you do a search for my art search under Niceman too as I'm so used to putting that in my tagline that I did it here on many pics in my gallery even though I'm going by NICELabs here.

Anyway, in the Real World I'm a farmboy nerd who enjoys CGI art (mainly work in Poser) when I'm not tending the baby calves on the farm or the classic 80s video game arcade I co-own with friends. My art is eclectic in genres ...pretty much whatever strikes my fancy. I'll do sci-fi, fantasy, modern, horror, just whatever idea pops into my head at the time. Usually though it involves nudity/adult themes. What can I say. I'm a lifelong fan of women and the female form :) If you know what Shokushu is, I'm THAT Niceman, though the Real World and other interests have kept me from being there for years.

Current Residence: the N.I.C.E. Labs facility just off shore of Shokushu Isle
Favourite genre of music: 80s but appreciate all kinds
Favourite style of art: appreciate many styles. Genres lean to Sci-fi and erotic
Operating System: Mac OSX
MP3 player of choice: iPod Touch
Wallpaper of choice: of my own creation
Favourite cartoon character: Jonny Quest circa 1960
Personal Quote: "Integrity is doing the right thing, even if no one's looking"

Commission Info

My rates are $30 for a basic portrait with limited background. Scenes involving action, complex settings and/or multiple characters generally go at a $30/hour rate where most pics fall in the 3 to 5 hour range. I of course do not charge for rendering time. You shouldn't pay for the speed of my computer (or lack thereof)... only the time I'm physically working on the artwork. Transactions via Paypal.

I like to explore genres. I won't be doing any illegal type of artwork of course, but I will do my best to capture your idea. I do refrain from doing any male gay or transsexual pics as it's not my thing and I've found that my lack of inspiration in such areas makes the pics suffer and for a commission that would mean not getting what you want.

I have an extensive 3D library so odds are I can get close to clothing, props and settings you have in mind, but if latitude is allowed I'm sure I can make up for any discrepancies by my attention to the spirit of your request.

Thank You for Encouraging My Behavior

THANK YOU ALL!!

Time constraints and popularity prevent me from thanking each and every one of you for finding Favor with my work, but please know that even if I may not say it to you directly, I am deeply honored my works have been pleasing to your senses. Thank you so very much!
