The Spider and the SpecterThe Spider and the Specter2 years ago in Romance More Like This
Rain poured down, pounding against the earth in a barrage of needle sharp attacks, that, despite the harmless look, would likely be acidic and painful should it ever touch the flesh. It was dark, shrouded in mist and a thick feeling of uneasiness, like every day in the Shadow Isle. The trees glowed a faint blue, like electricity that was dulled, flowing through the branches and providing some sort of light. In the distance, the soft howling and wailing of souls who were being taken in by death echoed through the trees. It was a sound that the ears grew accustomed to after so long. Living here, it became a comforting sound, as if a reminder that the world was in tact. It was there, in that place of darkness and hollow cries of despair, shrouded in thick fog, that the Queen of Spiders called home.
Elise breathed in deeply, the scent, which could not be described by words captured in the English language, was like a glowing blue aura, that flowed through her body and gave her life. It was

Hulda liked being in this part of the temple – the High Priestess' apartments were a tasteful sanctuary of ornate grey oaken paneling and lush carpets from the corner of each separate room to the next.
Recently, some dolt had trodden these with dirty boots, she noticed as she placed her books on the round table in the little study that served as an antechamber to the salon. Doing so, she accidentally knocked the inkwell over, and a tin vase as she jumped to try to keep the stuff from dripping on the carpet by cupping it in her hand. Fussing and turning, she tried to mop up the ink with a wad of her robes, praying to Selûne it was oak apple gall and not real iron gall ink.
She never got the iron gall stain out of her previous robes...
-”Hulda!” the voice of the High Priestess came from the adjacent room. “Is that you?”
Hulda nearly knocked the inkwell over a second time.
-”Yes Lady Meldrys! I've brought the books you requested,” she

In the darkness I walk
unknowing of what prowls beside me.
Time passes and I hear a cackling cry.
I turn to see what it is, but it's gone as quickly as it came.
I feel a bit nervous, I feel a bit scared,
What could possibly be following me in this shadowy lair?
Little do I know that the end for me is near;
I trudge on, curious and full of wonder.
What exists in this strange, dark realm?
How did I get here? I asked myself again and again,
But I couldn't seem to remember.
The darkness was all there was, the darkness was all
there will ever be.
Have I accepted such a fate or still do I hold on to some foolish shred of light?
No, perhaps there is nothing left for me but to embrace
The cackling cry resounds again through the silent night.
I feel its presence drawing near, coiling around me and corrupting my soul.
There is no where to run, there is no hope to be found.
There is only darkness... endless, merciless darkness.
In the silence my sanity is lost and I feel myself drif
MasksIn the summer,Masks1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
when the air was bright with the scent of nectar and sunshine,
she was called fat.
Her friends stood away from her,
and eyed each other with discomfort so palpable that it hung,
suspended in the Gothic hues of the warm evening sky.
as it was all she could do to hide the
pain that gnawed so badly inside
almost immediately, it was joined by that of her friends.
It was there,
she crafted her first mask;
imbued with betrayal and hurt.
She named it confidence
and put it on
In the fall,
when the carnival left sweet aftertastes
reminiscent of a fragrant dream,
she was called ugly.
The fragile and furled leaves cascaded over the dying summer breeze
and as she closed her eyes,
she wondered to herself,
"Where are my friends?"
When no answer came to her,
she slowly took out a blank mask,
from the hollow expanse inside of her.
She poured her sadness into it,
slathering it with the color of frustration.
She called it "desirable",
and she made it hers
Nocturne's EmbraceNocturne's Embrace2 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
A living nightmare with sharp blades, he's got two
he will show you fear, and destroy you
you try to hit him back but it can't be done
he'll simply laugh as you've let him won
His haunted laugh echos through the night
one dash, one slash, then he ends your life
Your paranoia will only last longer
as you fall into your endless slumber
With a claw of dusk, he'll soon follow
You can't escape his wrath; fill with sorrow
Execution quick and silent
"Are you getting, tired yet?"
"Drip drop" your blood spills as you reach death
You see the Twilight approach with your last breath
Eternal nightmares are everywhere and all about
You were just a flame to be blotted out...
Game Industry Advice4studentsI was asked by an aspiring 3d artist who was about a year from actually attending college, for some advice about the gaming industry and this is what I had to say to her. She was specifically thinking about going to Digipen, which is the same college I went to. But the advice applies to just about any school that offers a program in "video game' 3d art.Game Industry Advice4students5 years ago in Editorial More Like This
Well, there are a few things I'd suggest you do, if you have the goal of being a 3D Artist in the gaming industry.
First off, you need to really decide if you want to aim for the gaming industry or production film 3d.
Most schools that offer degrees in 3D Animation could go either way. The big animation projects that they all have you do are big prerendered, storyboarded 3d animated sequencees - which is obviously much more along the lines of film production. The limitations and techniques used in a planed out, storyboarded 30sec/1-2min animation are entirely different from the limitations and techniques used
