Odyssey Propulsion 7
He who birthed the strange tale into our world with a spurt of kaleidoscopic intergalactic vomit has now decided its end. CliveBarker has chosen his favorite Chapter Eight to bring the multi-imagined Hydra-headed beast of a story to the end. All that remains is Chapter Eight illustration submissions remaining open for the next two weeks. And with the perfect visual, Odyssey II: Propulsion will become another hallmark in deviantART history.
So many writers and artists from around the world contributed amazing gifts of their wildest imaginations, collaborating with each other and offering suggestions and encouragement to

I've set up a demo journal here so you can see how a normal journal might look, without all the red instructions and junk.
This is a nameless journal skin I'm offering to anyone who wishes to use it,
as part of my Creative Journal CSS guide/tutorial (WIP). I guess if you need to refer to it by name somewhere, you can call it "thespook's simple journal skin".
Content is king in my world, so it's about as simple looking as it gets. It's also simple to use because of this, with a minimal amount of custom elements (ie special div tags) to remember for daily use.

No matter the digital end point or theatre of conversation, whether it be politics, war, privacy, pop culture, or the rise of machines – Drones or UAV's (unmanned aerial vehicles) are the current catalyst du jour in any number of flashpoint discussions.

Italian Masters of Horror
Zombie by liliesformary
Giallo is Italian for yellow… and Horror
In the wake of the real life horrors meted out on Italians during World War II, brutalized by Mussolini and then by Nazi occupation and then having their country used as one great battleground chessboard between Nazis and the invading U.S. and Allied forces, there was for a long time little appetite for horror in movies. It wasn’t until 1956 that the first genuine horror film (a vampire story) was produced and released. It bombed, soundly rejected by the public. The film would be of little note

have some creepypastaThe Russian Sleep Experimenthave some creepypasta6 years ago in Personal More Like This
Russian researchers in the late 1940's kept five people awake for fifteen days using an experimental gas based stimulant. They were kept in a sealed environment to carefully monitor their oxygen intake so the gas didn't kill them, since it was toxic in high concentrations. This was before closed circuit cameras so they had only microphones and 5 inch thick glass porthole sized windows into the chamber to monitor them. The chamber was stocked with books, cots to sleep on but no bedding, running water and toilet, and enough dried food to last all five for over a month.
The test subjects were political prisoners deemed enemies of the state during world war II.
Everything was fine for the first 5 days, the subjects hardly complained having been promised (falsely) that they would be freed if they submitted to the test and did not sleep for 30 days. Their conversations and activities were monitored and it was noted that they continued to talk about increasingly t

Have You Met Zee Captain?Have You Met Zee Captain?3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Sep 19, 2012 by techgnotic
The chaptered comic strip, has been collected into a 100-page graphic novel – and to the still-uninitiated:
It is not quite like anything you’ve probably ever seen before. The story follows “Zee Captain” and his sidekicks as they amble through a post-apocalyptic landscape. And while that hardly seems new and different, it’s the unusually superlative graphic quality of the comic cells and the Monty Pythonesque dialogues and leaps of logic that can become quite mesmerizing. Zee Captain, his face hidden by a gas mask that gives him a Darth Vaderish look, wears what looks like a Soviet Red Army uniform from WWII, and the strip does have nourish WWII feel. It’s as if the nuclear holocaust on Hiroshima and Nagasaki had never ended and spread to every major city on Earth. But

If anyone know any fantastic 3D Zbrush (and Maya, though the originality in Maya is hard to find these days; everyone's building off of stock models) modelers, please let me know. I'm looking to hire a peep for some Rat Rage prototypes for figures in the near future. They have to be good with catching the original art exceedingly well, as well as astounding anatomy work. THANKS IN ADVANCE.
Also, I'm working my new gig + Rat Rage + miscellaneous. Haven't sent ALL of the commissions out yet, but they are definitely on their way. Had to begin the new gig earlier than I thought.
GET OVER YOURSELF!
Sometimes it's good to give yourself a pat on the back for your accomplishments. When you get done with a piece that you poured blood, sweat, tears, saliva, and urine in, you feel like you can throw the whole planet of Earth into a different galaxy. Those are very natural feelings. You have a right to be proud of yourself for what you've done.

Symbol(s) for the non Premium DeviantsHello my Ryceballs. So eversince DA's recent symbol changes, I have been hearing a lot of complaints. Mostly about how regular non premium members don't even get a symbol. It makes them feel like they are not important. Its ok I hear ya I hear ya. And you know me, I am all about the people. Ry-Spirit cares. So I thought about this a lot and try to think of an appropriate symbol that best suits our non premium friends, at the end I came up with a symbol... WELL I say a symbol but its more like a string of symbols. I feel like this is the only option for it to work. And I have used myself as an example of what the symbols would look like if I am in fact a regular deviant.

Critiquing Critiquing StoryStory: Turns out you're doing it wrong.Critiquing Critiquing Story1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Everyone is- and what's more, anyone who tries to make a foray into storytelling without having mastery over their efforts merits endless scorn.
I've had the privilege of sharing advice with some other creators of late, and seen some of the (usually anonymous) criticism being leveled at their work. It's noteworthy for being intense, superficially sophisticated, and misguided.
Now, there are two kinds of creators out there. Those who don't give a fig for what other people think, and dismiss all criticism out of hand.
...Those creators tend not to improve.
Then there are those who care about the quality of their work, take pains to make it enjoyable for others, and are receptive to feedback.
These individuals have the most potential as writers, and are also most vulnerable to their efforts being permanently deformed by vindictive critique.
They'll be assured their characters are flat cutout

Mind you my mother doesn't play games let alone know about the GamerGate scandal and yet her exact words throughout this mess of a episode was " I bet you this was all a publicity stunt that this game developer did to sell more of her game", yeah she was not buying this bullcrap one bit .

The military and tourist center of Hao, Urbis 'A Hao, which means City Of Hope, was being prepared for the Stateswoman Jaquelin Mass and her husband Hector Jerome.

Sitting in her spacious office, Mrs. Mass, was waiting for the word from the astronomers that the Trinovan flag ship had arrived. It seemed like an hour wait for her, when twenty minutes later, astronomer Elias Nouse walked in to announce that a foreign ship was orbiting above the city. "Flag them down," Replied Jaquelin.
The meeting would be brief: discussions on ideas for trade and a possible peace treaty with this foreign power. No

“In what direction, ensign?”
“…towards us, sir.”
Captain Bacharach stood slowly from his command chair on the bridge of the Adrianople-class battleship Herodotus, looking up at the tac-scanner that encompassed the whole of the bridge ceiling. He could see the icons of approaching starships as they neared the event horizon between real space and light speed.
“Looks like the Supreme Overlord’s message was received after all.” He muttered. Turning, he accessed the ships intercom.
“Attention, this is the captain. Now hear this: we are about to receive foreign dignitaries. Repeat foreign dignitaries. I want everything to run like a well-oiled machine, is that clear? No mishaps. This is a direct order from the Supreme Overlord.”

"Aside from the mind numbing Nightmares... What was that Naga?" He said as he got slowly to his feet. Rubbing his head and feeling where the Shard Naga had given him had fused to his skull.

“That was a test. One that you...’passed’...with my help, of course. The others have been moved ahead, like you, they have also passed and wait for us in the throne room." Naga replied, ignoring
