THE CROWGlistening feathers,
Blacker than the darkest night
A specter weaving through the clouds
Majestic is his flight
Piercing eyes reach into my soul
From the netherworld he will come
When I am no longer whole
Spawned from the magick of old
In a lingering mist he waits
Cast in velvet shadows so cold
Roses fall upon my grave
Talons clasp my fading spirit
A fallen love will he save
Shrieks echo across a leaden sky
Life descends to the arms of death
Scarlet tears begin to fly
Memories my heart cannot sever
Broken dreams whisper —
real love is forever

MysteriumLo there do I see the seraphic eyes of Freya, her memories piercing thru ripples of time.. And my soul stood frozen like a beacon lost to the ages... Ever her passion, haunting the blood & wisdom of heroes befallen. I flew thence over realms of Earth ... and darkly I wait in raven-mists, breathless, unto where I shall see her again — in the hallowed halls of Valhalla.Mysterium2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Venus"O'er the ache of mauve shores erotic winds billow long & deep... Her scent drips from the sky onto bare skin, bejeweling my senses like a tapestry of blushing petals besieged in rhythms of passion.... Whispers of untamed rapture beckons my lips as I descend into her gaze, unto the sea of bliss where I shall forever drown."Venus3 years ago in Personal More Like This

*This is getting a lot of views strangely, so I thought I'd explain what my journal is all about: It is a place I have
designated to share small quotes I enjoy creating, or anything that is short and doesn't fit within the form of usual poetry.

Self Doubt and an Interview by Alex HurstI just had the great honor of being interviewed by Alex Hurst! If interested, you can find it here: http://alex-hurst.com/2014/06/22/illustrious-lane-brown/Self Doubt and an Interview by Alex Hurst1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Also be sure to check out the other awesome interviews of his "Illustrious" series: http://alex-hurst.com/category/interviews/illustrious-book-cover-artists/
It actually took quite a few months for me to complete this interview. At the onset, I found it very difficult to speak confidently of my work and process, when personally I didn't feel very good about it at all. It felt wrong to pretend otherwise, so I put it off.
Probably all artists can relate to the overwhelming feeling of inadequacy. We see so much amazing work posted by artists everyday, but we don't see the hard years of struggle behind it. It becomes easy to question one's own abilities when we know our personal challenges all too well.
Of course, those feelings of doubt are just part of the creative process.
There's only one solution
Is This World Coming To An End?Are we really in the "last days"? If so, what does it mean? Will planet earth be destroyed in some cataclysmic event? What does the Bible really say on the matter? These are all good questions, and many who are at least somewhat familiar with the Bible have likely asked one or more of these at some point in their lives. But this article is also for Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists and others who may wonder just where this world is headed. In India, where Hinduism is prolific, old caste systems still exist, trapping millions in a cycle of numbing poverty, while many others pursue western values that espouse so-called freedoms as well as blatant materialism. In China and Korea, Buddhism has become little more than a cultural expedience, while capitalistic values destroy the planet at a rapid pace and give many a false sense of security. Many Muslims are becoming increasingly disillusioned with dictatorial governmenIs This World Coming To An End?2 years ago in Personal More Like This

And the World will bleed Crows ...And her wanton breath hastened upon Night's lullaby — seeking her nocturnal lover... Raven whispers billowed across the ages; plundering dreams of mortality... yet she stood veiled in the mists, silent & dreary ... Somewhere in the abyss of a black rose I peer into her soul, hungry evermore... Unto a kiss bejeweled in darkness she would fade softly, falling into beautiful decay and forgotten lore.And the World will bleed Crows ...2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Rant: Self-Harm Selfies?The opinions in this (short) rant are my own and you don't have to agree. If you do, thanks!Rant: Self-Harm Selfies?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
You know how some people tend to post pics of self-harm over the internet, like here on dA? I don't mean drawings of that type of thing; drawings don't physically hurt people and if you don't draw it and go 'lol look, cutting', you're good. I mean actual photos of their cuts or burn marks. Selfies where you're holding up your bloody arm, or photos where you say 'look what I did last night' in the description. What is that really proving? Most of the people I know who have a serious issue with self-harm are ashamed of it, and even if they can stand to talk about it, they don't want their suffering displayed all over the internet in cell phone pictures. It's not helping you get better, and it's not helping others who go through the same thing you do.
It kinda makes you look like you're proud of what you're doing to yourself, when most would like nothing more than to have their problem and

a minute with death and lifeI've been with death, felt its toucha minute with death and life3 years ago in Personal More Like This
a surge of fear thinking I reached the end
me, the indestructable, the survivor, the lucky one
time is up.
my first thought, a flash of sorrow
the agony my Mom will feel when she is told
first missing, then dead
years of crying looking at photo albums.
I won't go easy
intense awareness, hyper awareness, fear and focus
moving without thinking, all the right moves
a lifetime of training coming to play.
and then relief
realizing I would walk away
from a minute that would change me forever.
had I beaten death or had it let me go?
was it luck or skill?
it doesn't matter, in the face of death I didnt give up
I faced it straight on, My nature was true
live or die, I won.
Introducing the New NavigationIntroducing the New Navigation11 months ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Explore the full range of DeviantArt.
With better organization and improved structure, our new navigation creates a more streamlined site experience. Features like Today, Undiscovered, and What’s Hot have been given more prominence, while the More menu is now easily accessible with its simplified, new look. The addition of infinite scroll on Daily Deviations allows you to quickly discover even more hand-selected deviations. This all adds up to more control over what you use most and makes it easier to discover great artists and their art.
The More menu, which was previously available next to the DeviantArt logo, has been better organized and moved to a more prominent and convenient location. This change was based on community feedback that its previous placement was hard to find, and its contents overwhelming.

Please read all the rules!
Your image must be new and created for this collaboration. It would be no fun just to get a bunch of old images together. No images made before August 12th will be allowed.
Don't use official images/ photomanipulations of screencaps as it goes against copyright policy.
It's highly preferred if you don't copy screencaps from the movie. Let's not be lazy!
On the subject of laziness: don't use doll bases or any bases at all. We want this work to be completely your own!
Please mention this collaboration in your description and maybe even link to it so that we can get more participants. Also mention it because if you don't I'll take it that you didn't mean to submit it to our collab and move it to a

In the coming months, you may notice that the weekly Change Log is shorter than usual. This is because we're hard at work on a variety of major projects, and our development teams are focusing their energy almost solely in these areas. Stay tuned, as we'll have more exciting information on those projects in the next few weeks!
We will still be addressing bug reports during this time, so if you encounter any bugs, please do file a Bug Report about it at the Help Desk.
