Devious Journal Entry

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 12, 2014, 3:45 AM
Hi there!

Today I took the time to go through all the comments that I couldn't read yet, tried to answer your questions and thought about things that I want to change in future.
So, all in all, I read about 1300 comments today and I hope you understand that I can't reply to all of them any more. I always loved talking to you all but it is getting really difficult as I would have to sit in front of my laptop all day long.
Well, I didn't reply to every single comment anyway but thought that people who wrote thoughtful comments and asked questions really deserve a reply. I appreciate all your comments so much and read them all but it might happen that it takes me a few months until I find the time to sit down and write a reply.

(By the way, at the moment I am in bed with a flu so I obviously don't have anything else to do and am quite happy that I can spend some time on this, haha :D )

So... I would like you to know that if you ever have questions you are very welcome to send me messages and ask. I always try to answer messages, as long as they deserve an answer. This means, I do not reply to you if it is just smalltalk, nonsense or stupid sexual jokes or strange offers.
In one of my previous entries (-> la-esmeralda.deviantart.com/jo… I explained the main reason why I am not here that often any more.
For me, deviantArt turned out to be a place where most of the messages come from creepy people who have no respect and I do not like to spend my time on this. A few years ago it was a place where I could enjoy a lot of beautiful art and talk with artists or people who appreciate art. Today, whenever I see new messages in my inbox, my first thought is "creepy message again" and usually I am not wrong.
I am happy about every "normal" message so if you want to ask anything but are too shy, don't be ;)

Facebook & Instagram
Since I am not here so often I did not post many of my artworks, at least not many if you compare it to facebook. You can find most of my stuff there, next to behind the scenes stuff and other things. Also I have an instagram account where I also post things that you won't see here. Feel free to follow me at both facebook and instagram :)

Facebook: www.facebook.com/Alternative.M…
Instagram: instagram.com/modellaesmeralda

Prints
And one last thing: Did you already see that I started adding som prints? You can find them here:
la-esmeralda.deviantart.com/pr…


Well, that is it for now. Sorry for the long text ^^ I will try to upload more pics, especially the "missing ones" soon, which one can only see on facebook so far. But then again, I posted this like a hundred times before. I can't promise but I will try, haha :)

Big hugs and much love to the lovely people :-*

I DO NOT sell nude or fetish shots.

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 21, 2014, 6:43 AM
Since I get these kind of requests pretty much every day I thought it was time to make a little entry about this.
I consider myself an artist, not a fetishmodel (I know, I wear latex every now and then as well as corsets and high heels but I think they still cover everything and are just shiny, sparkly and pretty.). I like to wear clothes. I never did nudes and am not interested in it at all, even if it seems that some guys want to pay for it to have it in their "private collection".
Seriously. I like to earn my money with shooting pretty dresses and other things but I definitely won't sell any saucy photos to total strangers.

I don't even like to check my notes here any more because nearly all the messages are about commissioned (fetish-)photos, way too many details about the sexlife of people I never talked to before or dating requests. This is really annoying and every week I think I should just deactivate my account...
(Well, but I won't, no worries.  ...at least not yet)

Oh and by the way! I am NOT looking for (money-)slaves, dates or guys who want to skype with me. Not even if you are super rich! I barely have free time and if I have any I don't want to spend it talking to guys who just want to date me because they like my photos and think that "your boobs are so big <3 <3" is a good compliment to start with.
Also I don't want to see any photos of you being all nude and sexy and full of ... stuff. It is really nice that you think you would brighten up my day by sending me these things but personally I think one should at least ask first or have a proper conversation. Wich we definitely won't have if it is about this theme. In fact you might rather end up on my blocking list, especially if you are trying that twice.

Thanks for understanding.

Now back to normal life. Have a nice day everyone :)

Hi there!

Some of you may know that I had some kind of a shooting break during the last months. From september till december/ january I did not really have time to read your comments here even though I tried to check all the mails regulary. So even if I did not reply to every single comment now I want to say "Thank you"! I really enjoyed reading them and am sorry that it took me some months to reply to some of your questions ;)

I only had one photo shoot in december with my dear Ashtray Arts Photograhy (The one with the animals :heart: )and now the shooting season finally starts again! I really, really missed it and on sunday I finally had my first photo shoot in 2014. The first result is below :)

So, I am a bit slow with making new plans since I still am a bit busy but I am looking for new collaborations and if YOU are a photographer and want to shoot me please feel free to send me a message for my rates and if you are a designer please get in contact, too.I always love to wear pretty things! :heart:


I will publish some new blog entries very soon, keep an eye on my blog and check out my facebook page if you didn't already:

Ein paar Tips zum Thema Modeln

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 9, 2013, 2:11 AM
Hi there!

For my german readers:

Ds ich nun schon öfter gefragt wurde ob ich nicht mal ein paar Tips zum Thema "Wie werde ich ein Model" geben kann habe ich vor kurzem einen Blog-Eintrag dazu geschrieben. Schaut doch mal rein, vielleicht hilft er ja dem/der einen oder anderen weiter! Falls es noch Verbeserungsvorschläge gibt nehme ich gerne noch was mit auf! Eventuell gibt es rund dort um dieses Thema in Zukunft auch noch etwas mehr zu lesen ;)
Hier ist der Link: modellaesmeralda.blogspot.de/2…

For my english readers:

I posted a blog entry about how to become a model on my blog (link above). I wrote this in german but you can also find a link to a gorgeous english blog entry by Lady Amaranth :)
The rest of my blog is mostly written in english so if you want to find out more about me feel free to have a look anyway!


Love,
Esmeralda

Spam Attack - don't click any links!

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 9, 2013, 11:43 PM
Hi there!
I recently noticed a LOT of spam under my deviations and have spent a lot of time with removing comments and blocking people. As I have read in other peoples entries lots of people have been hacked these days because they clicked a link in one of these comments. Once you click one of those links your account will be hacked so whatever you do - don't click any of these links!

If there were some people hacked and now blocked by me that really like my work I am sorry for that but I just can't have these comments under my photos as I don't want my followers to click these links. Hope you understand this!


Take care, guys!

New internet provider! / Facebook update

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 19, 2013, 6:01 AM
Hi there!

Today is the first day that I have my new internet provider and I just browsed through many new deviations without any trouble so it seems like I am back and can be more active again, yay!

Also here is a little update about facebook pages:
As FB wanted artists to pay to make their posts appear in everyones news feeds many people don't see our posts any more as artists never have any money and no one wanted to pay for that. Here is a good way to make our posts come back to your news feed:
Go to my page or any other page that you like (This is my link: www.facebook.com/Alternative.M… )
Hover over the "like" button and check if "Show in news feed" is selected.
Also click on "Settings" and choose "All updates". 

Once you did that you should be able to see every post!


Have a great day everyone!

Devious Journal Entry

Hi there!

As I had these problems with my internet I couldn't read all your comments as soon as I wanted but this week I spent a lot of time on dA to read everything you guys wrote. I hope to be finished tomorrow and am so happy about your gorgeous feedback right now. Even if some of these comments are already half a year old you guys just really made my day and I wanted to say THANK YOU for always supporting and motivating me!

I hope to be more active here in future and have many photos that I only uploaded to facebook so far (-> www.facebook.com/Alternative.M… ) but I really want to update everything here very soon! Also I have planned many cool projects for the next weeks / months so there will (hopefully ^^) be tonnes of new photos :heart:


Hugs to you :heart:

Hi guys!

Some of you may know that I have some problems with my internet and can't use dA the way I want it when I am at home. The problem is not my laptop but my internet provider and so far I didn't have the time to look out for another one. So I am only online when I am at work and don't have much time for reading all your comments and mails as soon as I want - but I am trying to upload pics and reply to you guys as good as I can :) I wished I could be more active here as I really love the community and enjoy watching all the great artworks but it just isn't possible at the moment.
As I don't upload many news here you might like to have a look at my blog - I published some blog entries in the last days with many photos and other news - check them out! More news and pics will follow, soon.

Also, for those who are on facebook: Check out my fanpage: www.facebook.com/Alternative.M…


And for the people who ask if I would allow them to edit my pictures: I have a stock account called La-Esmeralda-Stock with lots of unretouched photos, you are very welcome to use them for your work as long as you follow the rules I wrote down over there. I don't allow any editing of the pictures you find in my main gallery as they are finished the way they are so please respect that :)

I am really looking forward to meet a lot of them tomorrow and hope that you will have a wonderful christmas time yourself. I promise that I will reply to everyone before the new year and am sorry that it takes me so long!

Much love to you guys

Stolen Art on Facebook - help, please!

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 10, 2012, 1:41 PM
Hi there!

There is this site on facebook which is called Gothic Pandemic and they really do their best to piss of a lot of artists at the moment... -> www.facebook.com/Gothic.Pandem…
A while ago I had a conversation with a guy called Fahad who seems to be the founder and I asked him to put credits under every photo he uploads.
Usually I have no problem with people who forget that once or twice and I know that there are lots of sites who have no idea about copyright and post photos without permission but he just doesn't care. He was like "read the rules first, you have to share our site and apply for getting credits (?!) and we will credit you after that" but I said I would only like and credit his page when he at least tried to give credits. He said it wouldn't work this way and I said in this case he should stop uploading my photos please.

The consequence is that he started to cut of all our watermarks and the only thing he posts under the photo is the link to his shop. One could think that you can buy all our clothes at his shop but in fact they only sell low quality stuff. I don't only speak for myself, he steals a lot of photos from amazing artists (from facebook and deviantart) to make advertisement for his shop with our work.
I guess one can't do much against this but I would really appreciate it if you guys could go over to his site, leave some comments and report his page.
Thanks a lot in advance for your help! ♥

Here is the link: www.facebook.com/Gothic.Pandem…



I also posted this on facebook and I know that one or two other models did the same... I hope he is not going to report my fanpage in act of revenge...
