I visit various ZOOs to take many pictures of interesting animals: in my gallery, you can find mostly wolves, foxes, big cats and marine mammals, but also some other creatures which deserve attention :nod: I am also trying to bring you information about animals to share the knowledge :D

Welcome to my gallery, dear visitor! :hug:

Big cut, apology, art thief and zoo news

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 28, 2015, 10:01 AM


Hi guys!

Yeah, long silence again – I was very busy with job, which I love but it makes me soooo tired, that when I get home, I usually just change to sport clothes to move a bit… only to fall asleep immediately.  So there is no energy for zoos, drawing, writing fan-fiction or anything similar, which made me feel happy.

As for the cut… I have to apologize, my pals and watchers. I had to do something I never wanted to, but it was finally unavoidable. As you know, I ha(ve)d some personal issues which totally block my mind, so although deviantART and my watchers have been always very valuable for me, I somehow could not kick myself to be more active.
As a result, I had finally some 450 notes and 10 500 comments.
I’ve managed to answer the notes and to fav works that used my art as a reference, but every time I logged in, I’ve just saw those 10 500 comments and I immediately felt guilty, nervous, ashamed and tired that I have no time to answer them.

Today I deleted them :(

I simply needed to make a big cut to free myself a bit. It does not mean I ignored them – I read them, I just wanted to answer them LATER, so they cumulated and cumulated… creating one big “Woxys, this is yet one more thing you were not able to manage”.  Finally, with 10 500 comments which were sometime more than 2 years old I simply had to make a big move and simply accept that I would not be able to respond.



Just in short some general answers:


1)   THANK YOU ALL FOR FEATURES!!!! :heart:

2)   IF YOU WANT TO USE MY WORK, CHECK MY RULES, PLEASE: woxys.deviantart.com/journal/D…

3)   THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL THE POINTS, FOR ALL THE COMMENTS AND INSPIRED WORK!



I really apologize.
Especially when I am sad dA changed it style and I get much less attention than before I wanted to keep some special bound with my watchers and this is definitely not a good way to go.

I ask for understanding – I know this is pretty pathetic and you have all the right to criticize, but I simply need my energy for other things in my life.

So after this cut, with my mailbox almost empty, I will do my best to be a bit active – once I’ll get over this feeling of shame, I will try to be a bit more active and interacting. At least for some time. I also like to read old comments under my works, so I might reply to some comments anyway…

And there is one special thing I want to say. Maybe this “cut” journal is not the best moment for such line, but I would like to thank you all for sending donations or buying my stuff in last 3 years. I saved it, hoping to use it for a special occasion. If everything goes will I will go abroad on Friday, making one of my long-time dreams come true by using this money. It is indeed a zoo trip, so I hope to be able to pay back with some photos for you :) even of animals you have not seen in my gallery before, probably :D

Love you, guys.
It might not seem so today, but believe me in the past years, your attention was one of the main factors that helped me, allowing myself to believe I might be a bit gifted or that I can make people happy with my photos of animals. That’s why I am really sorry for today’s cut, you did not deserve this. I only hope you can understand a bit. My life is not exactly funny and I had to free my hands a bit.
I could do that silently without this ddddddrrrraaaaama journal, but you know – I just think it is fair to say that and to apologize.

Thanks!

Wox

I promised some zoo news, so I share new exhibits in zoo Brno – many new expensive habitats for species you usually do not see in any zoo, so rare they are. For example bald eagles, skunks, ring-tailed lemurs and domestic goats. Yeah, irony.


Last but not least there is new art-thief to report - just report, please, no rude comments. Thanks :) => :iconfluffywuff:

Hey, sorry to bother you so much but this is really urgent!
Please vote and help spread the word if you can
We're still so far away from winning, but if you can possibly make a journal about it and notify your friends and watchers, we can get more people to see this.

Amazing work. Can I just fave all of it? XD But actually I had a question about how you got such awesomeness: Are you allowed in the enclosures or something? Is there some sort of special permission for that? Or are there just a lot more fenceless enclosures in European zoos?

(I ask because I love taking pictures of zoo animals but mine never turn out as clear as yours because of the fences or cloudy plexiglass. >.<)

Hey there <3
Is is allowed to use your photos as a reference for drawings? I never found awesome photos like this and it would be nice if I could draw some of them. If you dont like this, no Problem.

Hello Woxys! Thank you for reminding me to cite the photographer. I took it down because I felt I could improve it, and just to double check that I have permission to use the photo. In the meanwhile, do you know any high quality stock image websites?

Thanks a bunch!
