Skin by SimplySilent
... is a phrase that blooms in my mind so often these days. I'm not at all attracted to horror, gore makes me cringe, zombie girls and bloody clowns make me sleep with the lights on. And yet this dark nuance that paints the shadows of beauty and perfection attracts me with incredible force. Try to suppress a shudder and don't turn off the lamps just yet as you go through this creepy goodness! :drool:

Hope everybody had a nice day Party Welcome new members and watchers! Thank you for joining and thanks to the contributors of our galleries for letting me show your amazing works here.
So today, as each week i will open a space for all the members to get one work featured in exchange of the many times your works get declined. In this space quality does not matter, is to help you out to get more exposure. That´s the points of every group but cause this group is for high quality works only i can not always accept your works.  

When declined without explanation, is because it was in the wrong folder.

  Happy Easter Day! :DAlright! Easter is finally here! :D Now I can finally enjoy this holiday. :)
Two days ago, I have managed to finish 20 pictures of Easter and I completely done with them early before the deadline. I hope the Easter Bunny is here with a lot of delicious chocolates(but I prefer milk chocolate). Good thing these pictures have a lack of bikini girls content (thank goodness!). I made these pictures with variations of easter eggs, colourful visuals, a lot of white bunnies and many more. Happy Easter, everyone! Have a great day! :D
Check out my Easter drawings in this Folder:
  EasterI love easter because of the candy,I always get tons of candy every year!!! CANDY CANDY CANDY CANDY CANDY!! PARTY TIME!!  Easter is Coming Soon!So much to talk about! I'm so excited! I have a happy feeling right nao.Love 
I guess this is what I get for not posting on days of opportunity like April Fools, Ash Wednesday, etc. But who cares?! :dummy: I am going to speak with you about stuff that is silly, stuff that is dumb, and stuff that is delicious! :heart:
First off, something dumb: I don't like typing on my phone. It lags and crap. Brb while I find my mother's laptop.

Happy EasterI wanted to take the time to say Happy Easter to all the wonderful people I know. And that I hope you have a great Spring Break, and don't do anything you'll regret. Anyways I will be adding more photos as so as I charge my IPod (I have all my character bios on it). I have a few already made I have some for TMNT, Tron, POM, and one of me. 
  Happy Easter!!Since Easter is about Christ raising from the dead, this journal is in dedication to His power and glory. It is made for me (and others) to worship and praise Him.
     After the Sabbath, as the first day of the week was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to view the tomb. Suddenly there was a violent earthquake, because an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and approached the tomb. He rolled back the stone and was sitting on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his robe was as white as snow. The guards were so shaken from fear of him that they became like dead men. 
     But the angel told the women, “Don’t be afraid, because I know you are looking for Jesus who was crucified. He is not here! For He has been resurrected, just as He said. Come and see the place where He lay. Then go quickly and tell His disciples, ‘He has been raised from the dead. In fact, He is going ahead of you to Galile
  Happy Easter everyoneNuff said.
