My latest work, inspired by the Mad Hatter.
A Mystical and Magical FeatureContinuing to show my appreciation for the talented deviants here, I took my favorites from my Mystical and Magical collection to compose this illustrious art feature for all to see. The fantasy genre has long been a lucrative outlet for budding artists to show off their imaginative talents. DeviantArt is no exception to this, as the majority of creative artwork here is dedicated to personalized dreams, fantasy worlds, custom made creatures, rogue bards, lone warriors, dragons, Elves, Angels, Demons, Tolkien/Rowling/Martin/etc fanart and every thing in between. I myself have worked around this idiom from time to time, treasuring the power of fantasy in the only ways we know how: Reading, writing and creating our own worlds.A Mystical and Magical Feature1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Please take the time to browse through this collection from my favorite artists and their incredibly enchanting work.

I'm reaallllllly happy about it since I've been trying to get a spot in the prestigious artbook for five years but my submissions were never even shortlisted. It is one of the remaining goals I always wanted to achieve. Now I have to set myself some new ones.
In other news- The Depthcore collective released a new chapter called 'Primal'. I'm in with one image which you may have found in your inbox today:

My deviantART StoryHello my friends,My deviantART Story4 months ago in Art Features More Like This
I am too late as usual, but I still want to take the opportunity to jump on the bandwagon and congratulate deviantART on its 14th birthday!
8 out of 14 years I have been here myself and it is save to say that dA is one of the main reasons I turned into an art addict 8 years ago. It has been an inspiring trip with plenty of new trends over the years, good and bad, but also sometimes infuriating because of the regular dArama coming up every now and then. But all of this just made it all the more interesting - even today dA is the only website that I still update regularly.
In this journal I would like to share a few mementos of my own story and the artists that inspired me the most during that time.
This is the very first piece I submitted to my deviantART gallery:
Obviously I didn't know the first thing about proper stock crediting or stock policies in general back then (something that is valued a lot on this site and maybe even th

. . . Story . . . Nexus City. . . Story . . .6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Among the world we know and the unknown netherworld, lies a city called "Nexus". Centuries ago creatures who once used to live in the world of human, started to turn their backs on it and went to build their own realm between the world of the living and the dead. "Nexus" started as a small village, but over the years it turned into a big city. Even if humans are not their problem anymore, life still isn't easy. Living in "Nexus" is rough for thous who are weak or poor. Lucky are thous who live in the upper class and don't have to care about others. People in lower classes have to fight for their life and are often forced to break the few laws to survive. But even if life is hard and sometimes unfair, there is always a light that shines in the city to overcome the deepest darkness.
We are focusing our group spotlight on the daily life in a city full of creatures that are all different, but also the same since all of them are special!

My First Love, Michon
1853, New Orleans.
I was 14 when my parents died from Yellow Fever during the Winter.
A young girl now owned the Estate and I was forced to put away childish things and run the fields to avoid losing our home to the bank.
I needed help managing my time and schedule efficiently and so I decided to go down to Mr Atkins auction house to buy me a new Negro girl.
The pickings were slim.
They are all so filthy and suffering from malnutrition, but I managed to find myself a good bargain.
I offered Mr Atkins a minimal amount and haggled ownership of a girl with some witty bartering, just as my father had shown me to do.
The girl frustrated me from the very beginning.
She was always slouching and walking with a broken spirit; the sight of her depressed me and I whipped her with my fan and would tell her to straighten up and walk like a person and not a sad mule.
How ugly they are with their big noses and lips, and their hai
